East LoI dated 2014-06-09

Unto Gabriel Laurel, Lillia Pellycan and Brunissende Wreath from Alys Blue Tyger, greetings and every good thing.

It is the intent of the College of Heralds of the East to register the following items. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

1: Adelina fýri - New Name & New Device

Or, on a dance purpure between three flames gules a square-linked chain throughout argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.
Meaning (either fire or juggler) most important.

Adelina is a feminine given name found in Talan Gwynek's "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html) s.n. Adeline with the submitted spelling dated to 1086.

The combination of pre-1100 English with Old Norse is permissible per Appendix C of SENA.

fýri is intended as a descriptive byname based on the poetic Old Norse term for "fire." See Cleasby Vigfusson s.n. fýri, n. fire, Lex. Poët.; vide fúrr. (http://lexicon.ff.cuni.cz/html/oi_cleasbyvigfusson/b0184.html). The use of a term for "fire" as a descriptive byname in Old Norse is supported by Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, The Old Norse Name p. 21, which has the nickname eldr with the same meaning.

If the College of Arms judges that fýri is an unacceptable byname, the submitter will accept (in order): (1) Adelina eldr trúðr or (2) Adelina trúðr.

trúðr is a descriptive byname found at p. 29 of Geirr Bassi, with the meaning "juggler".

In support of the alternate form Adelina eldr trúðr, precedent states that two descriptive bynames are allowed in Old Norse names when the bynames might both have been used to describe the same person. [Fiórleif eldr ǫrn, 12/2010 LoAR, A-Outlands].

Gunnvor Orle provided several images of chains from period armorials.

Image #1: Die von Daxau in the Schiebler Armorial (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DT-Scheibler17ps.jpg).

Image #2: 1440-1550 Armas de los Condes, Spain [BSB Cod.icon. 290]

Image #3: 1480 Das Wappenbuch Conrads von Grüenberg [BSB-Hss Cgm 145].

While some commenters thought the chain was not sufficiently identifiable, Blue Tyger disagreed and found it within the acceptable range of artistic license.

Correction to Device (2014-Jul-15 23:07:11): The submitter has withdrawn this device per an e-mail to Blue Tyger on July 15, 2014.

Correction to Device (2014-Jul-24 22:07:55): The device forms have not been scanned because the device has been withdrawn.

2: Attila Soldus - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2013, via the East

Per bend sinister vert and argent, a domestic cat sejant regardant contourny and a cross crosslet fitchy counterchanged


This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

3: Bernhard Brakelmann - New Name & New Device

Or, a cross between in sinister chief three lozenges fesswise and in sinister base an annulet gules

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (German) most important.
Culture (German) most important.

Bernhard is a German male name found in "Medieval German Given Names from Silesia" by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/bahlow_v.htm) dated to 1253, 1352, 1374, 1423, 1528 and 1583.

Brakelman is found in Bahlow (Gentry transl.) at p. 54 s.n. Brackel(mann), as a byname meaning "from Brackel," with the submitted spelling dated to 1376. Brackelmann with two 'n's seems a reasonable variant. In fact, the -nn spelling appears in the Family Search Historical Records in the gray period:

Catharina Brackelmann; Female; Marriage; 03 Nov 1650; Sankt Marien Evangelisch, Dortmund, Westfalen, Prussia; Batch: M97363-1

This device is problematic. The arrangement of the charges is not one of the period arrangements found in Appendix J. Nor does it resemble any period arrangement of which commenters were aware.

However, only four people commented on this device during Kingdom commentary. In fairness to the submitter, Blue Tyger has forwarded this device with the hope that the wider community of Society-level commenters may find something to support this design.

4: Black Rose, March of the - New Badge

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

(Fieldless) On a rose per pale sable and argent, two feathers conjoined in pile counterchanged

This submission is to be associated with Shire newsletter, The Thorn

Although originally blazoned as quill pens, the charges on the rose are actually feathers. Quill pens have the vanes stripped off well up the quill. Here, the vanes come down nearly to the end of the feather.

This badge should be clear of Jonas Aquilian (9/1991, Caid): (Fieldless) A rose per pale sable and argent barbed and seeded proper, with one DC for fieldlessness and a second DC for adding two tertiary charges (the feathers).

The local group has asked that this badge be associated with its Shire newsletter. Question was raised in Kingdom commentary whether associating the badge with a newsletter effectively circumvents the policy against allowing local officers to register their own officer badges. This is a question best addressed by Wreath and Laurel.

5: Brigit inghean ui Dhomhnaill - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1998, via the East

6: Brunissende Dragonette - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2013, via the East

(Fieldless) A domed oven gules vented argent.

Correction to Badge (2014-Jul-15 23:07:47): The domed oven is a period charge. It appears in the Zurich Roll, number 267, in the arms of Stubenwid: "Sable, a domed oven argent multiply pierced gules." (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ZurichRoll/)


This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

7: Diana Spencer of Barmore - New Name

Diana is a female given name found in "English Given Names from 16th to Earth 17th C Marriage Records" by Aryanhqy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/english/parishes/parishes.html) s.n. Diana dated to 1591, 1597 and 1609.

Spencer is a byname found in "An Index to the 1523 Subsidy Roll for York and Ainsty, Enfland" by Karen Larsdatter (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/york16/bynamesalphabetically.htm)

Barmore is a locative, found in Watts s.n. Barmoor Castle, with the submitted spelling dated to 1539.

The pattern [given name] + [byname] + [locative] is found in Early Modern English per Appendix A of SENA.

Commenters at Kingdom noted that there does not appear to be any association between Barmore/Barmoor and Diana Spencer, the deceased Princess of Wales.


This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

8: East, Kingdom of the - New Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1973,

Blue Alaunt Herald

This title is intended for one of the Deputies assisting the Blue Tyger Herald in submissions and notifications matters, along with the already-registered Blue Talbot Herald. SENA NPN 1.B.4 states that the standard heraldic designators for heraldic titles for Kingdoms are Herald and Pursuivant.

Evidence of titles named in the pattern [color] + [charge] is found in "Heraldic Titles from the Middle Ages and Renaissance" by Juliana de Luna (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/HeraldicTitles/heraldic_titles_by_type.shtml#ENGLISH_CHARGES).

The spelling blue for the color is found in the Middle English Dictionary s.n. bleu dated to 1455: "(1455) Acc.St.Ewen in BGAS 15 149: A part of a blue chesyple."

An alaunt is a type of dog found in period heraldry. The electronic Pic Dic states: "There is also the "alaunt" or "alaund", a short-eared mastiff, in the arms of Woode c.1460 [RH]" (http://mistholme.com/dictionary/dog/). The spelling alaunt is also found in the MED s.n. alaunt dated to c. 1410: "(c1410) York MGame (Vsp B.12) 64: Alaunt is a maner..of houndes . . ."


This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

9: East, Kingdom of the - New Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1973,

Jongleur Herald

Spelling (Jongleur) most important.

This title is intended to be used by a Deputy to the Brigantia Herald's office.

"Heraldic Titles from the Middle Ages and Renaissance" by Juliana de Luna (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/HeraldicTitles/) provides evidence of heraldic titles based on surnames in both France and England.

Jongleur is based on the surname Le Jongleur found dated to the 16th cen. s.n. Jugleur in "DRAFT: Bynames in Medieval France" (Jan. 23, 2014) by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/frenchbynames.pdf).

SENA NPN 1.B.4 states that the standard heraldic designators for heraldic titles for Kingdoms are Herald and Pursuivant. The Kingdom prefers the Lingua Anglica designator Herald, which is permitted by SENA NPN 1.B.4.

11: Eydís Þorgrímsdóttir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (9th-10th cen. Norse) most important.
Culture (9th-10th cen. Norse) most important.

Eydís is a female name found in Geirr Bassi, The Old Norse Name, at p. 9 as a female name.

This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

The household name Spak-Hrafn hús is on the May 7, 2014 Eastern xLoI. (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=41337).

The use of a valknut is a Step from Period Practice.

The motif of three crescent-shaped things interlaced is one found in period heraldry and should be registerable.

14: Jack de Haldane - New Name & New Device

Argent, a warhammer headed vert and hafted sable, a bordure vert

Submitter desires a masculine name.

de Haldane is a locative byname found in Black, Surnames of Scotland, p. 337, s.n. Haldane, with the submitted form dated to 1296.

15: John Fowler - New Name & New Device

Gules, a goose regardant argent and a tierce ermine

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (14th cen. England) most important.

John is a male given name dated to 1540 s.n. John in "English Given Names from 16th and Early 17th C Marriage Records" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/english/parishes/john.html).

Fowler is a surname dated to 1540 in "English Names found in Brass Enscriptions" by Julian Goodwyn (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/brasses/lastnameAH.html#F).

There is a Step from Period Practice for the use of a tierce with other charges. [Thorvinn blóðøx, 7/2013 LoAR, A-Caid]. This rule was re-affirmed on the April 2014 Cover Letter.

This device appears clear of the device of Chistiana Crane (Apr. 2013, East): Azure, a crane in its vigilance argent and a tierce ermine, as there is a substantial difference in type between a crane and a goose, as well as a DC for the field.


This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

This item was on the 09-2014 LoAR

19: Nadezhda Voronova - New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and gules, an orle of mice argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Russian) most important.
Culture (Russian) most important.
Spelling (as submitted, of the first name) most important.

All name elements are found in Wickenden, Russian Names Database (3d ed.)

Nadezhda is a female given name dated 1577-78.

Voronova is a feminine patronymic appearing s.n. Voron dated to 1592-93.

This name potentially conflicts with the registered Nadezhda Toranova (Mar. 2001, An Tir). Under SENA PN.3.C.1, it appears that the two names may be clear as there are changes to two syllables: the change from the initial T- to a V-, and the change of vowel in the second syllable from 'a' to 'o'.

In the event that the Colleges find that this name conflicts with Nadezhda Toranova, the submitter has authorized a change to Nadezshda Voronova zhena Stephanovicha to clear the conflict.

Stephanovicha is the feminine form of Stephanovich, a patronymic byname based on Stephan, which is listed in Wickenden 3rd s.n. Stepan, dated 1558.

The name pattern is found in "'A Chicken Is Not A Bird': Feminine Personal Names in Medieval Russia," by Paul Wickenden of Thanet (http://www.goldschp.net/archive/femnames.html):

In addition to being named after one's father, upon being married, many women became known through their husbands. The actual grammatical constructions were similar, except for the replacement of "doch'" with "zhena" [wife]. The examples found also include the husband's patronymic/surname added as an extra byname: Katerinka Stepanova zhena Proniakina (1538-9) [II 780] and Marina Ovdeeva zhena Laikina (1617) [XIV 249]. In these cases, Katerinka is the wife of Stepan Proniakin and Marina is the wife of Ovdei Laikin.

20: Nicol mac Donnachaidh - New Name & New Device

Gules, a fess urdy between two apples Or and a clenched gauntlet issuant from base argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (unspecified) most important.

Nicol is an Early Modern Irish male given name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Nioclas.shtml), with Annals dates of 1271, 1326, 1450 and 1489.

mac - Gaelic patronymic marker per Appendix A of SENA

Donnchadh is an Early Modern Irish male given name found in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Donnchad.shtml), with Annals dates of 1254, 1267, 1317, 1322, 1334, 1337, 1338, 1414, 1445, 1452, 1466, 1473, 1474, 1475, 1483, 1484, 1485, 1486, 1502, 1503, 1519, 1523, 1531, 1553, 1558, 1573, 1577, 1580 and 1591. Donnchaidh is the genitive form that follows mac in a patronymic.

This name appears to be clear of Míchél mac Donnchaid (May 2000, Ansteorra) under PN.3.C.1 Changes to Two Syllables. The initial change from Mí- to Ni- and the change from -él to -ol seem to fit this rule.

Correction to Name (2014-Jul-09 22:07:20): The byname is intended to be mac Donnchaidh; anything else is a typo.

21: Sara of Salaparuta - New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and vert, a dog sejant cotourny Or collared gules maintaining on an upraised paw a roundel Or

Language (Italian/Jewish) most important.
Culture (Italian/Jewish) most important.

Sara -- Dizionario Onomastico della Sicilia, Caracausi, G., 1994, Palermo. S.n. Sara, "... Ma può risalire direttamente alla forma ebraica Sārāh; cfr. Sara mulier iudea uxor quondam Buxacce, a.1400. Translated by Maridonna Benvenuti: But it can be directly traced to the Jewish Sārāh form; cfr. Sara mulier iudea uxor quondam Buxacce, year 1400.

Submitted as di Salaparuta no documentation was provided for Salaparuta as a place name. Fortunately, Maridonna found evidence that Salaparuta is the modern name of a place known in period.

PDF I Feudi section from Repertorio della feudalita siciliana, 1282-1390 by Antonio Marrone lists : [Note: Barberi and Muscia are his sources]

Page 529, SALA: Barberi, III, 8; Barberi, MC, 609-612 (VM). Casale (1305-1349), poi terra (1390), poi casale (1393). Ora comune di Salaparuta.

Feud.: Albira Arbes > Enrico Abate (1325) > eredi (1345) > Allegranza Abate e Matteo Moncada (1367) > Antonio Moncada > Marco Ferrerio (1408: Muscia, 1692,64).

Translation w/o sources

[Placename] Sala: Castle (1305-1349), then land (1390), then castle (1393). Now a comune of Salaparuta. Fiefs.: Albira Arbes to Enrico Abate (1325) to heirs (1345) to Allegranza Abate & Matteo Moncada (1367) to Antonio Moncada to Marco Ferrerio (1408).

Juliana Siren found "Duca della Sala di Paruta" dated to 1625 in Teatro Genologico Delle Famiglie Nobili Titolate Feudatarie Ed Antichi Nobili, Volume 1 by Filadelfo Mugnos (http://books.google.com/books?id=SOBDAAAAcAAJ).

Therefore, Blue Tyger changed the byname from the Italian di Salaparuta to the Lingua Anglica of Salaparuta to reflect the current documentation.

The armory appears clear of Fáelán mac Áedgein (May 2012, Caid): Vert semy of lilies argent, a wolf sejant ululant contourny Or. There is one DC change of tincture of one half of the field, and a second DC for the strewn secondary charges in Fáelán's device.

28: Velikail of Deltuva - New Name & New Device

Argent, a crampon azure

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (Lithuanian) most important.

Velikail is the name of a Lithuanian prince dated to 1219 s.n. Velikail in Wickenden, Russian Names Database (2d ed.) (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/va.html).

Deltuva is the Lingua Anglica form of a place that is known to have existed in period. It is mentioned in Lithuania Ascending by S. C. Rowell (Cambridge University Press, 2014) (http://books.google.com/books?id=X1cHAwAAQBAJ) at p. 50 as one of the regions ruled over by a powerful duke in 13th century Lithuania. The submitter also supplied a Wikipedia page stating without citation that "[t]he Duchy of Deltuva was first mentioned in 1219 in Lithuania's treaty with Halych-Volhynia." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deltuva). During Kingdom commentary, Rohese Shadowdale found the following:

"I found a reference to the 1219 treaty in Edvardas Gudavičius Following the Tracks of a Myth on the Legacy of Medieval Lithuania site: `The account of the 1219 Lithuano-Galich Treaty very clearly shows that the Žemaitians and Deltuva were constituent parts of Lithuania [11].' The source material has this footnote: [11] biakhu zhe imena litov'skikh kniazei: se stareishei [...], a zhemot'skyi [...], a Rush'kovichev [...], a se Bulevichi [...], a se kniazi iz Diavoltvy [...]' (and these were the names of the Lithuanian dukes; the senior (dukes) were [...], the Žemaitijans were [...], the Rushkovichi were [...], the Bulevichi [...], and the dukes of Deltuva were [...]'): Polnoe sobranie russkikh letopisei [PSRL], II Moscow, 1962, col 735-736 -- http://viduramziu.istorija.net/etno/gudavicius-en.htm#s11. Deltuva seems to have been called Diavoltvy in this quotation from the treaty (at least I think it is a quotation from the treaty). However, it may be from a Russian translation of same.

Although commenters found several period spellings for this place name, the submitter indicated that he preferred the Lingua Anglica of Deltuva.

Helping this submitter inspired ffride Goutte d'Eau to write "Lithuanian Grand Dukes from the Galicia-Volhynia Treaty" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ffride/volhynia.html), which indicates that <Velikail> was not a Duke of Deltuva, and provided period spellings for both name elements. The submitter prefers the name as submitted.

The newly updated Pic Dic states: "A crampon is a metal rod, pointed at both ends, used by builders to strengthen a masonry wall. It is also called a "crampiron", "cramp", or a "wolf-hook". It's a period charge, found in the arms of Winterstetten, c.1340 [Zurich 122]. The crampon is palewise by default."

The submitter prefers that it be blazoned as a "wolf-hook" if possible. That is a question for Wreath.
