2: Aurora Lucia Marinella -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2011, via Æthelmearc

Per pale gules and azure a fesswise flag fan and a fesswise cushion Or.

Original device submission was returned in the August 2014 ILoAR.

"Per pale azure semy of eyes argent orbed sable and Or, a sinister hand apaumy couped at the wrist counter-changed."

Returned for excessive counterchanging under SENA A.3.F.4


3: Aurora Lucia Marinella -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2011, via Æthelmearc

(Fieldless) Issuant from the line of division of a fesswise cushion per fess azure and gules, a demi-sun Or.

Original badge submission was returned in the February 2015 LoAR.

" (Fieldless) Issuant from the line of division of a fesswise cushion per fess azure and gule, a demi-sun Or. "

This device is returned for violating our restriction on "barely overall", as a previous precedent regarding a charge that was half-on and only top-half-off of the underlying charge states:

[...in chief a dragon passant sable surmounted by a crescent gules] This device is returned for violating our restriction on "barely overall" charges. By precedent:

We will no longer return items for being barely overall if the area of overlap is small, the area of the overlap which projects beyond the edge of the underlying charge is also small, when the overall charge does not obscure significant portions of the outline of the underlying charge, and when identifiability is preserved. [Brunissende Dragonette de Broceliande, December 2008, A-East]

In this submission, the area of overlap is large and the area of overlap which projects beyond the edge of the underlying dragon is small. A properly drawn overall charge will lie upon the field on both sides of the underlying charge; the crescent here has only its horns on the field. If the crescent were a touch smaller, it could be considered a tertiary charge, but would then violate the rule of contrast. [Nikolaus Grünenwaldt, R-Caid, Feb 2012 LoAR]

This is a similar case and therefore this badge must be returned.

8: Lynette de Warenne -New Name & New Device

Argent, on a pale endorsed azure, three bowen crosses Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound ("lynette/Linette/Lynett/Linnet" with any version of (de) Warenne / Warren) most important.

Lynette was discussed as an acceptable spelling of a name for English and Belgian female personas in these articles: http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=1145&id=27589 and http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/03/13lar.htm#82

From the March 2013 LOAR letter: "New documentatio has been presented to allowe the submitter to have her preferred spelling Lynette. Linette was dated as a French given name from late period Belgium i the IGI parish records abstracts. The letters i and y were used interchangeably in French. Examples include Bartholome/Bartholomye and Jheromin/Jheromyn (both from Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Names Found in Commercial Documents from Bordeaux, 1470-1520", http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/bordeaux.html) as wel as Didier/Dydier, Simmonet/Symmonet, Nicaise/Nycaize, Nicholas/Nycholas (all from Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Names from Choisy, Franch, 1475-1478" http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/choisy.html

There are three IGI citgations from Belgium cited in the above references:

Linette Collett Female Christening 5 November 1577 Herstal, Liege, Belgium Batch C00416-8

Linette Del Bressine Female Christening March 1583 Herstal, Liege, Belgium Batch C00416-8

Linette Huensis Female Christening 6 November 1605 Herstal, Liege, Belgium Batch C00416-8

The submitter also found two additional English references in IGI:

Lynett Ferssoun was married in England in 1603, meaning she must have been born before 1600: https//familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1NN8P-7Z6

Lynet Francis was christened in 1624, which the submitter says they understand is in the "gray window": https:familysearch.org/ark/61903/1:1:N1WG-3B6

The family name "de Warrenne" arrived in England around the 1080's, with William de Warenne, First Earl of Surrey. [Reaney and Wilson](p. 477, surname Warren) cites William de Warrennem, de Warenne, de Garenna and dates the name to 1086.

The earls continued under the name de Warenne through 1347 (http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/5t75376/John-de-warenne-8th-earl-of-surrey) and Warenne/Warrenne/Warren is found in many names in England throughout and beyond the end of period (including William Warenne's christening in 1576, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWXG-7ZS, and Richard Warrenne's christening in 1633, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VH6R-3C2 ).


9: Nikolai Vasilei Stefanov -Resub Name

Language (Russian) most important.
Meaning (Would like to keep some version of) most important.

Nikolai - http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/n.html

Vasilei - http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/va.html

Stefanov - http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/sp.html

Previous submission, Nicola Drake, returned in the December 2014 LoAR:

Unfortunately, this name conflicts with the registered Nicholas Drake, and must be returned. In English, the final syllable of the given name has changed, but in French, the terminal -s in Nicholas is not pronounced. Even if they're both interpreted as English given names, the removal of the -s is not enough of a change in pronunciation. Therefore, although the names differ in appearance, they are identical or nearly identical in sound.

Her device has been registered under the holding name Nicola of Rivenstar.


10: Soffya von Kulpe -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) On a water bouget gules, two ermine tails argent.



OSCAR counts 5 Names, 4 Devices and 4 Badges. There are a total of 13 items submitted on this letter.
