Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Culture (Russian first name, and last name plausibly meaning Lothar's daughter) most important.
Meaning (Russian first name, and last name plausibly meaning Lothar's daughter) most important.

Client would prefer Miakushka, instead of the documented Miakusha but the consulting herald could not find documentation of this version of the given name.

All documentation from "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names" by Paul Wickenden of Thanet, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/.

Miakusha (f) -- "soft." Miakusha Fedorka, wife of Makarkov, serf. 1473. [Tup 462] http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/mi.html

Loshkina - female patronymic based off the masculine given name "Loshka" Loshka (m) -- Loshka. 1575-84. [Tup 230] Pat Vars: Loshkinich (Menshoi Loshkinich, Kievan craftsman). 1552. [Tup 249] http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/l.html

Patronymic construction based on the Grammar page: http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html

"In most cases, women used the same types of patronymics as men. However, their bynames had to agree with the gender of the subject, which, in Russian, means that they had to add an "a" on the end (not to be confused with the "genitive a's" used by men." (Masculine patronymic formation grammar) "If the father's given name ended in "-a" or "-ia," the basic patronymic ending is "-in" or "-yn," respectively (with the "a" or "ia" dropping out)."

See the images below for the submitter's documentation regarding her device. She refers to the 2008 registration of device of Ruaidhrí Mac Diarmada. That LoAR stated the following:

This submitter produced copious documentation for the charge, none of which included reliable dates that showed the use of the fess nowy in period heraldry. Thankfully, White Antelope provided a citation from a source which appears to be from the 15th century. Therefore, we are giving the submitter the benefit of the doubt and registering this device.
White Antelope's original commentary on Ruaidhrí's device can be found here (for those who have access): https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=6718

The referenced image from White Antelope's commentary which appears to be from the 15th Century per the handwriting: https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=71/2008-07-14/07-14-06_Fess%20Nowy%20-%20170vJouvencelA1.gif

Returned on the January 2015 LoAR for a redraw:

This device is returned for redraw. Please instruct the submitter on the proper way to draw erasing: either three or four prominent, pointed jags on the erasing, as described on the Cover Letter to the November 2001 LoAR:

Therefore, for purposes of recreating period armorial style for erasing, the erasing should (1) have between three and eight jags; (2) have jags that are approximately one-sixth to one-third the total height of the charge being erased; and (3) have jags that are not straight but rather are wavy or curved.

Alternatively, the submitter could also draw the charge clearly couped.

There is a step from period practice for the use of a natural (demi)tiger.

For comparison, here is the prior submission: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Calontir/2014-09/Tatiana_Nikonovna_emblazon.jpg

The full blazon for the retained badge is as follows (as the text box above cut it off): Argent semy of patriarchal crosses sable, on a pile inverted wavy gules a natural tiger passant reguardant argent striped sable, a bordure counterchanged gules and argent semy of patriarchal crosses sable.
