16: Lucia Flecher -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of August 17, 2014 as submitted.

Purpure, a simurgh displayed between three increscents each maintaining a mullet between its horns Or.

Previous return on the 11/2014 LoAR:

Purpure, a Russian firebird Or tailed and crested gules between three increscents each maintaining a mullet between its horns Or.

This device is returned for multiple issues. The mullet and increscent combination has identifiability issues as many commenters saw them as badly drawn annulets and/or could not identify the mullets at all.

The primary charge is also not in a standard heraldic position as it appears displayed but has its feet drawn up to the chest rather than in the normal location extending out from the body.

Finally, the primary charge itself is unidentifiable and may well not be a period charge. Not only is there no clearly defined depiction for a Russian firebird in Society armory, but it appears that the charge itself is post-period with the earliest descriptions dating only to the 1800s.

Therefore, pending period documentation, we will not register Russian firebirds after the July 2015 meeting. As is usual, the submitter is allowed to use this charge in a timely resubmission.

This is a redraw using a simurgh in place of the Russian firebird. While previous registration is not indicative of current registerability, simurghs displayed were registered as recently as January of 2009: Magdelena Grace Vane, Per pale gules and sable, two simurghs displayed Or. This also clarifies the depiction of the mullets.


17: Mell MacAlpin -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of February 21, 2015 as submitted.

(Fieldless), A cloud sable.


18: Mell MacAlpin -New Badge

(Fieldless), A dragon's head gules issuant from a cloud sable.


19: Sighridh inn blakki dýr -New Name & New Device

Ermine, a stag salient azure within an orle of ivy vert.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (byname = pale deer) most important.

Sighridh - Nordiskt Runnamslexilon pg. 82

inn blakki - Geirr Bassi pg 20

dýr - Feir Bassi pg 21


20: Ulfger Bjornsson -New Name & New Device

Gules, two wolves combattant and on a chief triangular argent a Thor's hammer sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (wolf's spear Bjorn's son) most important.

Ulfger - Found in Old Danish as Ulfger and in OW.Norse as Úlfgeirr. For the first element Úlf- see above. For the second element -geirr see above. Runic examples include the nominative case forms ulfua(in)r and ulfkair. Nordiskt runnamnslexikon s.nn. UlfgæiRR, Ulf-, -gæiRR

Bjornsson - Patryonymic from Bjorn: From OW.Norse bjorn, which in turn derives from Primitive Scandinavian *bernuR, "bear". An extremely common name in West Scandinavia, originally derived from a by-name meaning "bear." This was a very popular name, as the many runic examples attest: nominative case forms include biairn, biarn, biaurn, biaurn, binrn, biorn, birn, biurn, burn, byorn, byrn; the genitive case forms bianaR, biarnar, biarnaR; the accusative case forms baorn, biaorn, biarn, biern, bihrn, biorn, bira, biur, biurn, biurno, burn, etc. Found in Old Danish as Biorn, in Old Swedish as Biorn and Biørn, and in OW.Norse as Biorn or Bjorn. Found in Latinized Old Danish as Bero, Berno, Biorno, Biornus. Anglo-Scandinavian forms include Beorn, Biern, Bern, Biorn, Ber. A diminuitive form of Bjorn is Bjorsi. FJ pp. 54-55, 342, 349, 351 s.nn. Bjorn, Bjornkarl or Bjornketill, Bjorn-, -karl, -ketill; NR s.n. -kæ(ti)ll

May need to be adjusted to "Biornsson" to match danish spelling of "Ulfger".
