3: Alen Elegil -Resub Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1982, via the Middle

Hollincross

No major changes.
Sound most important.

(primary name Alen Elegil reg. 05/82 via Middle)

<Hollin-> constructed English place name Hollin - Ekwall (p. 245 s.n. holegn): "OE holegn 'holly, holm-oak' is found alone as a pl. n., as HOLME Do, YW, HOLNE D, HULNE Nb, and fairly often as a first el." Ekwall (p. 246 s.n. Hollinfare) dates Hollynfare to 1556 and gives the meaning as "'The ferry by the hollies.'" Mills (p. 175 s.n. Hollington) dates Holyngton to the 13th C.

<-cross> Mills (p. 72 s.n. Charing Cross) dates <La Charryngcros> to 1360. Mills (p. 71 s.n. Charing) gives the meaning of Charing as "'a bend in a road'. Alternative 'place associated with a man called Ceorra', OE pers. name + ing." Mills (p. 344 s.n. Waltham, subheader Waltham Cross) <Walthamcros> 1365. "Named from the 'Eleanor Cross' set up here by Edward I in memory of Queen Eleanor in 1290." Waltham is given as "'homestead or village in a forest'" in the same entry.


4: Alise MacLeod -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister argent and azure, a lightning bolt and a sprig of heather both bendwise counterchanged.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

<Alise> - found in Records of the Parliments of Scotland dated to 1493: "Before the lordis auditouris comperit Katrine, the spous of umquhile William of Cranston', and protestit that because Alise Hopp[ri]ngill, the spous of umquhile Thomas Hopp[ri]ngill, and walde nocht compere to folow hir, that tharfore etc." (record 1493/5/98; http://www.rps.ac.uk/mss/1493/5/98).

<MacLeod> is a header form in Black. <M'Kleod> and <M'Cleod> are dated 1633, <M'Loyd> is dated 1443 and <M'Loyde> is dated 1436, so the submitted spelling is plausible. Client desires the Spelling <Ailsa>, but we were unable to find it. The closest we found it that <Ailsa Craig> is a header in Johnston, which glosses the Gaelic "aillsa" as meaning 'a fairy', and "al" and "aill" as 'rock, rocky steep'. MacLeod is a header form in Black. <M'Kleod> and <M'Cleod> are dated 1633, <M'Loyd> is dated 1443 and <M'Loyde> is dated 1436, so the submitted spelling is plausible.

Culture (language and meaning are important) most important.

Arigh Ulagan-Checheg means Pure Red Flower. From http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/mongol.html On the documentation and construction of period Mongolian Names by Baras-aghur Naran

Common name elements from Primary sources

Checheg=flower, Arigh=pure, Ulagan=red

Precedent-Mongol names w/ 3 elements: Submitted as <Badai _Doghshin_ Altai>... There is a precedent...:
[Chinua Al-Naran] Mongols did not as a rule use three-part names. Fortunately, Pennon has pointed out that there is an uncommon but attested pattern of hyphenated names, to which this submission can easily be made to conform. (05/99 p8).
<Al-Naran> is comprised of 2 themes, <Al> 'crimson' & <Naran> 'sun'. These...can be combined to form the reasonable meaning 'crimson sun'. In the case of the current submission, the bynames <Doghshin> 'fierce' & <Altai> 'he who is crimson' are mutually exclusive ideas which could not be combined into a single byname w/ a plausible meaning. [Badai Altai, 09/2002, A-Outlands]

According to Karaka this is "an almost complete list of names of Parsi men and women in general use at present. Those of Hindu origin are marked with asterisks, and the rest are Persian names." Names that are CAPITALIZED are from Parsiana's Book of Iranian Names. See also J. J. Modi, The Religious Ceremonies and Customs of the Parsees (Bombay, 1922, pp. 10-11). Parsi names http://www.avesta.org/znames.htm

16: Brigita Gescheid -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2011, via the Middle

Quarterly purpure and argent, two mullets of twelve points Or all within a bordure counterchanged.

Jan 2011 LoAR: Brigita Gescheid. Device.
Quarterly purpure and argent, two mullets of twelve points Or. <br/> This device is returned for conflict with the device of Golda ferch Deiniol, Per chevron vert and Or, two suns in their splendour Or. There is a CD for the change to the field, but the position of the suns in Golda's device is forced and, therefore, there is no CD for the change of arrangement. Since we grant no CD for the difference between suns and mullets of seven or more points (historically referred to as 'multi-pointed'), there are no other CDs.

This device is also returned for conflict with the device of Valeria Valkenaer, Per pale gules and sable, in chief two suns Or. There is a CD for the change of tincture of the field, but since Brigita's suns could not both be placed in chief because of their tinctures, the change in position is considered forced and not worth a CD. <br/> <br/> Client added bordure to clear conflicts. No additional conflicts found.

Per saltire gules and ermine, in pale a lion's head cabossed and a rapier Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No holding name.
No major changes.
Sound (Would prefer spelling of Lowen) most important.

<Darius> In the Vulgate Bible, Daniel 5:30. (http://www.latinvulgate.com/verse.aspx?t=0&b=32&c=5). Darius is the Latinized form not only the name of several ancient Persian kings, but also the name of an early saint and martyr whose feast day is December 19 (www.saintpatrickdc.org/ss/1219.htm#dari). While we were unable to find a clear instance of the Latinized Darius as a byname in period, the saint's name would be usable as an unmarked patronymic in the eastern Empire and the Persian form Daryush appears to be used as a surname at least in modern times, e.g., the poetess Elizabeth Daryush (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Daryush)".

<Lowen> is found in http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/engsurlondon1541.html - Index of Names in the 1541 Subsidy Roll of London: Surnames of English men and women known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael

Nadyezhda (Haдeждa) - using Revised English System of Transliteration, the 'd' is palatized which creates a 'ye' sound so it should be written with a 'ye' instead of an 'e'.

32: Sarre Anne Pierrepont -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2012, via the Middle

Purpure, a pile inverted ployé throughout Or a semy of butterflies sable between two roses Or each charged with a fleur-de-lys purpure.

April 2012 LOAR:
"Sarre Anne Pierrepont. Device. Per chevron ployé throughout purpure and Or semy of butterflies randomly tinctured gules and sable, in chief two roses Or each charged with a fleur-de-lys purpure.

Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as a pile inverted embowed throughout, this is an excellent and unexceptional depiction of a per chevron ployé throughout field.

This device is returned for violating section VII.7.b of the Rules for Submissions, which requires that "[e]lements must be reconstructible in a recognizable form from a competent blazon." There is no way to adequately describe how the butterflies are tinctured here, some entirely sable and some entirely gules. The only example of randomly tinctured charges in period armory that commenters could immediately come up with is the English panther's spots. Without further documentation, randomly tincturing charges is not registerable."


33: Shria Mahyyn -Resub Name & Resub Device

Argent, a crequier sable and on a chief vert a moon in plentitude argent between two cats heads erased Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for Mongolian.
Meaning (yellow cat in Mongolian) most important.

<Shria> "the color yellow" [Baras-aghur Naran, On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names, http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/mongol.html]

<Mahyyn> "Pallas cat or Manul cat = Mahyyn. Mountain cat = Nyma. cat = Myyp. [English Mongolian Dictionary, http://www.bolor-toli.com]

04/2012 LOAR: Jaboa Shria Manul

"This name has multiple issues that need to be addressed before it can be registered. First, the elements Jaboa and Manul were not dated to period. Second, no evidence was presented that a three element name consisting of two animal names and a color is a reasonable construction in Mongolian. Barring evidence of these things, the name cannot be registered."

04/2012 LOAR:

"This device is returned for violating section VIII.1.a. Tincture and Charge Limit, which says "As a rule of thumb, the total of the number of tinctures plus the number of types of charges in a design should not exceed eight." This device has a complexity count of nine, with five tinctures (argent, sable, gules, vert, and Or) and four types of charge (crequier, chief, moon, cat's head). While allowances may be given for good period style, and the arrangement of charges here does follow period patterns, the different tinctures on the crequier gave some commenters difficulty in identifying it, as it is a rather stylized charge. Reducing the tinctures used overall would decrease the complexity count, but making the crequier a single tincture would probably be the best option."


34: Skallagrim Neinnskegg Rickarôsson -New Name & New Device

Per saltire argent and gules, two spears in saltire sable throughout and a bordure Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

<Neinnskegg> Constructed nickname. <Neinn-> from Old Norse Dictionary meaning "no or none" (http://www.yorku.ca/inpar/language/English-Old_Norse.pdf). <-skegg> Geirr Bassi pg 27 col 1 under "Skegg-". Submitter desires the meaning "No beard".

Tasmach Yehuda al-Khazar. Name change from Shlomo Korobenik.
Commenters found evidence that Khazars used both Biblical names and Turkic names, as well as that some people were identified in different contexts by a Biblical name and a Turkic name. However, no evidence was found that both names would be used together as a double given name. Barring such evidence, a double given name cannot be registered. We would drop one name or make the second name a patronym (ben Yehuda) in order to register the name, but the submitter allows no changes.


37: Thorwyn MacLeod -New Name & New Device

Per fess azure and sable, a lightning bolt fesswise and a celtic cross argent.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
No major changes.
Sound (overall name) most important.

<Thor-> prototheme found in Thormod 1275, Thorgor 1327, Thorgod 1327, Thorbrond 1422 (s.nn. Thurman, Thurgur, Thurgood, Thorbrand) [R&W]

<-wyn> deuterotheme -win(e)/-wyn(e) found in the byname <Corwyn> "[The same day were certain bishops, viz. doctor Corwyn archbishop of] Duvylyne, [doctor William] Glyne bysshoppe of Bangor, (and) doctur (James Turberville) bysshope of Exsseter, alle consecratyd at Powlles." J.G. Nichols (editor), Diary 1555 (Jul-Dec): The Diary of Henry Machyn: Citizen and Merchant-Taylor of London (1550-1563), 1848 (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/source.aspx?pubid=324).

<MacLeod> is a header form in Black. <M'Kleod> and <M'Cleod> are dated 1633, <M'Loyd> is dated 1443 and <M'Loyde> is dated 1436 so the submitted spelling is plausible.

Submitter will allow something with the sound "Thorin" if necessary. Submitter will allow "de" or "the" or changing language when the change is small.


38: Tuathlaith Davyoth -New Name & New Device

Argent, on a triangle throughout between three horse shoes inverted purpure a hummingbird volant to sinister argent sustaining a lance fesswise reversed Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Culture (Submitter prefers variation, but header spelling is acceptable.) most important.

<Tuathlaith> from O'Corrain and Maguire p. 173 HEADING: TUATHFLAITH cited as name borne by a queen of Leinster who dies in 754

<Davyoth> Place-names of Scotland (Johnston) p. 98 HEADER: DAVIOT (2nd Ed cites header spelling to c. 1300) variation listed as Davyoth


39: Tzvi ben Avraham -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1986, via the Middle

Argent, a stag's head erased gules within a Star of David, all within an annulet azure.

Jan 1997 LOAR:

Tzvi ben Avraham. Device. Argent, a stag's head erased gules within a star of David, all within an annulet azure. This is being returned for non-period style. The visual effect of the head is similar to that of a quaternary charge, and the use of one charge to enclose another is rare in period armory. Putting the charge within another charge makes it unregisterable.


40: Umm Iskander Mihri -New Name & New Device

Or, on a bend between two lotus blossoms in profile azure a scimitar bendwise argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for Turkish.

<Umm Iskander> "Mother of Iskander" in Turkish as constructed in St. Gabriel #2423. Iskander is the Turkish form of Alexander." [Ursula Whitcher, http://www.s-gabriel.org/2423]

<Mihri> "Mihrimah: 16th C female from Academy of St. Gabriel #2181" [Arval Benicoeur, http://www.s-gabriel.org/2181]

Submitter writes: "There was a Turkish Poet Mihri Hatun (also known as Mihri Khatun) who died in 1506. Not sure if the name was normalized and hope that the College can assist. Will accept Mihrimah if Mihri is not registrable. Will allow adding/deleting a word like "de" or "the" or changing the language when the change is small."
