Heikkin - Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names), by Rouva Gertrud, heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm, section V The Names, heading Heikki "Heikki M (male) Heyki Haralax 1440, SB 487. The most popular Finnish form of HENRIK." For converting it into a patronymic: Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names), by Rouva Gertrud, heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm, section III Structure of A Finnish Name: sub-section Matronymics and Patronymics A matronymic indicates a mother's name and a patronymic the father's. A patronymic was the norm, a matronymic was used probably only if the father wasn't known (for example Maijsa Lucija dotter). Most of these names were derived from the father's (or mother's first name, but some examples can be found where it was formed from a byname (Remi Kettun) or from the whole name (Maijsa Henrik Nijrans dotter). The best known type is the straightforward -poika or -tytar ending to the actual parent name. However it's not the only way, also a -nen ending and spelling variants -n, -inen, and -in were often used. Using here the specified spelling variation "-n".

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity.

The submitter hopes that the name can be documented in Dutch.

Genevieve is a feminine given name in Colm Dubh's "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris"(http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paris.html) and in Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Late Period French Feminine Names" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/latefrench.html).

The submitter would prefer van der Sterren, but what we could document is von dem Steren, which is dated to 1327 as a byname in Brechenmacher s.n. Stern. As redocumented, this name mixes French and German. She will accept changes to make the elements Dutch or compatible, but will not accept dropping any elements.

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

CONSTRUCTION: Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names - Grammar, 1996, heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html, section Possessive and Descriptive Bynames, sub-section Surnames "Basic grammar and common sense apply to their construction. Surnames could not employ the genitive or the familial constructions of syn/doch'. Surnames must agree with the gender of the subject, therefore all women's surnames ended in "-a" or "-ia" and men's surnames generally did not."

Margarita - Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section MA, Paul Goldschmidt, 1996, heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/ma.html heading: Margarita (f) -- "pearl." Margarita, martyr. 4th Century. [Buk 493]

Ivanona - Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section H-J, Paul Goldschmidt, 1996, heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/h-j.html heading: Ioann (m) -- The Russianization of John (God is gracious) and one of the most common given names. Both the older form (Ioann) and the newer (Ivan) Pat Vars (f): Evanova (Evanova zhena). Second Half of 15th Century. [Gra 254] Ivanovna [from Ivan] (Marfa Ivanovna, great elder). 1618. [RIB II 357]

Novgorodetsa - Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section N, Paul Goldschmidt, 1996, http://server.penheralds.net/heraldry/mirrors/heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/n.html heading: Novgorodets (m/byn) -- "Novgorodite."

22: Melissa di Constantino -New Name & New Device

Argent, a triquetra interlaced with an annulet, a chief enarched purpure.

No changes.

Melissa is the submitter's legal given name; Juliana Siren and Siusile saw the driver's license (but also believe it to be attached). The byname di Constantino is a contructed byname; there is a pattern in Renaissance Italy of classical names being revived. Juliana de Luna's "Late Period Italian Women's Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/), says "The second [pattern for the coining of given names] is the use of classical names, including both normal human names and the names of mythological figures like Pantasilea and Hippolita (the Amazon queens)." Constantino is the Italian form of Constantinus/Constantine, the name of the emperor; it is found for example in the 1545 _Vita de Constantino Magno Imperatore_ (http://books.google.com/books?id=gMo7AAAAcAAJ).


23: Mikjáll sauðamaðr -New Name & New Device

Azure, on a flame Or, a dog's paw print gules

Sound (Given name - sound; byname - meaning) most important.

Mikjáll can be found in Geirr Bassi on page 13, s.n. Mikjáll as a male given name. Sauðamaðr can be found in Geirr Bassi on page 26, s.n. sauðamaðr and means shepherd.


24: Muirenn ingen Guaire -New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and argent, two quatrefoils counterchanged, within a bordure embattled gules

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Muirenn is a feminine given name dated to between 643 and 979 in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan. Guaire is in the same source as a masculine name dated to 867; the genitive form of the name is listed as the same (i.e. Guaire). We believe this is grammatically correct. She would prefer Muirne if that could be documented.


25: Orn Askelsson -New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Orn Ãskelsson in March of 2002, via Æthelmearc.

(Fieldless) on a mountain of three peaks couped gules a wolf's head erased argent.

Σελήνη (transliterated normally as Selene) appears with 8 instances across three volumes in the LGPN database online. Κασσιανός (transliterated as Kassianos) appears with 9 instances across five volumes in the LGPN database online. Per the article on formation of ancient Greek names at http://www.lgpn.ox.ac.uk/names/index.html the genitive form of the masculine name is a standard patronymic. For this name the genitive form would be Kassianou.


30: Shira Arslan -New Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in December of 2014, via the Middle.

Old Item: Justin of Dragon's Vale, to be released.
No changes.
Meaning (Yellow cat/lion) most important.

This is a reworking of Shira Manuul, which was returned by Laurel in 1/13, because Manuul was not dated.

Both Shira and Arslan (meaning 'yellow' and 'lion') are in Baras-aghur Naran's "On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/baras-aghur/mongolian.html). Well, the correct spelling of Shira is noted in the LOAR). The combination matches a pattern of color+animal, and the change from Manuul to Arslan resolves the original reason for return.

"Grímudóttir" is a constructed matronymic from the genitive form of "Gríma" which is found in Geirr Bassi, p. 16 in the feminine names column. The genitive case substitutes -u for -a according to Geirr Bassi, p. 18.


33: Þóra Grímudóttir -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.
