This item was on the 09-2015 LoAR

8: Jibril ibn `Ammar al-Fayyad - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2009, via the East

Veritus Slacke

Sound (slack) most important.

Veritus Slacke is a name dated to 1565 in the Family Search Historical Records:

Veritus Slacke; Female; Christening; 28 Oct 1565; Saint Mary and All Saints, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England; Batch: I05025-9 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NL75-88F)

Because this record is an I-Batch, supplemental documentation is required.

During commentary, Alys Ogress noted the following:

Veritus is the masculine nominative form of a Latin word meaning "respected, revered." There seems to be a pattern of giving English children names based on Latin words reflecting positive qualities. For example,

fidelis = faithful, loyal

Fidelis Hayward; Female; Christening; 05 Nov 1617; GLEMSFORD, SUFFOLK, ENGLAND; Batch: C06222-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWVJ-8NY)

renatus = revived, renewed, born again

Renatus Byllett; Male; Christening; 29 Sep 1616; SAINT COLUMB MAJOR, CORNWALL, ENGLAND; Batch: C03122-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J795-G8F)

donatus/donata = bestowed, granted forgiven, pardoned

Donata Clement; Female; Christening; 12 Aug 1612; SAINT CLEMENT DANES, WESTMINSTER, LONDON, ENGLAND; Batch: C04160-5 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JMG6-XQT)

Therefore, the argument could be made that Veritus is a Latin virtue name, following this pattern.

If Veritus cannot be documented, the submitter DOES NOT want the spelling Veritas. He would prefer the English male given name Maximillian, which is also found in the Family Search Historical Records:

Maximilian Waterhouse; Male; Christening; 24 Jun 1576; CALVERLEY, YORK, ENGLAND; Batch: P00725-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JM9S-JQY)

(Fieldless) A stag's head gules within and conjoined to a capital letter O vert

This badge was redrawn to make the O appear to clearly be a letter, not an annulet. Submitter has approved the redraw.

10: Purple of An Dubhaigeainn - New Name Change & New Device

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in August of 2014, via the East.

Purpure, a cats pawprint within a mascle and a bordure argent

Old Item: Violet Hughes, to be retained as an alternate name.
No changes.

Purple is an English surname found in marriage records from Cranbrook, Kent, England in 1597. John Purple, marriage record dated 12 Oct 1597. Batch number M01834-4 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NN1Y-RLW) Late period English surnames are allowed as family names per the September 2012 cover letter.

The submitter would like the surname of An Dubhaigeainn per SENA PN1.B.f. "Branch name allowance." Recent precedent states:

Metron Ariston noted in commentary that the current submission should be instead registered as Lisa An Dubhageainn in order to use the exact registered form of the branch name per PN1B2f of SENA. However, this section of SENA also requires such bynames to be registered in the lingua Anglica form, 'of Branchname'. We cannot modify the branch name to the typical nominative/base form used with the preposition of, and we cannot utilize the branch name allowance without the English preposition. Therefore, both conditions cannot be met. Rather than penalize submitters from this Barony by not allowing the typical use of the branch name allowance, we are registering the name as submitted, acknowledging that the grammar cannot be fixed. [Lisa of An Dubhageainn, 10/2014 LoAR, A-East]

Correction to Name (2015-Aug-30 09:08:23): The submitter has contacted Blue Tyger and requested that this submission be treated as an alternate name, not a name change. She would like her currently registered name, Violet Hughes, to remain her primary name.

There is a Step From Period Practice for the use of a pawprint.

12: Steinar Bjornsson - New Name & New Device

Per pale indented sable and Or, a valknut and a raven counterchanged

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Submitted as Steinarr Bjornson, it was noted in Kingdom commentary that the patronymic was improperly formed for Old Norse. The submitter was presented with several options documented by ffride wlffsdotter and elected Steinar Bjornsson, a later-period Norwegian and Icelandic name. Please disregard the preferences for "Norse" and "Viking" on the form, as the submitter wants this form of the name.

Steinar Biornson is found in the Diplomatarium Norvegicum dated to 1398 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=1685&s=n&str=Steina%%20B_orns%)

Bjornsson appears in the Family Search Historical Records:

<Thorleifur Bjornsson> born 1640, Iceland. Batch no. C49090-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FGPJ-K6K)
<Jon Bjornsson> christened 1643, Iceland. Batch no. C49185-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FGT6-P96)

There is a Step from Period Practice for the use of a valknut.

13: Tysha z Kieva - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2011, via the East

Per bend sinister purpure and vert, a sun argent and overall a bend chevronelly sable and argent


This item was on the 09-2015 LoAR

14: Vettorio Antonello - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2014, via the East

Or, a housecat sejant sable and a raven gules respectant within a bordure embattled per pale gules and sable

This is a resubmission of a return at Laurel from the August 2014 LoAR. The submitter's prior device, Per pale sable and bendy sinister Or and gules, a raven counterchanged, was returned for insufficient contrast. Both the field and the charge were 75% color.

This is a complete redesign.

15: Wulfgang vom Walde - New Name

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

Wulfgang -- Wulfgang was registered as an extrapolated 14th cen. German form in June 2011. The LoAR stated: "The submitter requested authenticity for 12th century Germany. Unfortunately, we have no evidence that either element was in use that early. It is a plausibly authentic 14th century name, however." [Wulfgang Gruenwald, 6/2011 LoAR, A-East] Going back into OSCAR for this item, the key portion of the documentation for that Wulfgang seems to be this:

Wolfgang was found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "German Names from Nürnberg, 1497" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/german/nurnberg1497.html), with seven instances. [Alys] Elmet noted that Bahlow/Gentry, s.n. Wulf(f) has <Wulf filius Wolberti> (1286) and <Wulf Pudwills> (1435), which may support the submitted spelling, especially as Wulf is the Lower German form of Wolf [ibid., s.nn. Wolf(f) and Wulf(f)].

vom Walde is a surname found in Bahlow, page 532, Wald(e) is the name from the dwelling place of Hans vom Walde Freiburg, 1474.

OSCAR counts 1 Resub Device. This item is not chargeable. There are a total of 21 items submitted on this letter.
