Calybrid

Escutcheon

1: Æðelðryd MacGillavrey -New Name & New Device

Azure, on a pile inverted argent between four cats pawprints two and two argent a brown mouse proper dormant.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (sound ofÆðel- in Æðelðryd) most important.

Æðelðryd is found in Anglo-Saxon Names by Ælfwyn æt Gyrwum http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/aelfwyn/bede.html#Women%27s%20Names under Women's Names s.n. "Æðeldreda or Æðelðryd [Aedilthryd]"

'MacGillavrey' is grandfathered to the submitter. Her father's registered name is "Torquil MacGillavrey" and her mother's registered name is "Moira MacGillavrey" both registered in September of 2003 (via the Middle). The mundane relationship is attested by Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe.


2: Ælfric Greensweard -New Alternate Name

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

Oyama Taro Hideyasu

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Japanese adult male members of the buke (military caste) bore names with the structure <family name><yobina><nanori> see NCMJ Rev. Ed. p. 4

Oyama is lazy romanization of Ooyama (big mountain) - family name dated to 1568 in NCMJ Rev. Ed. p. 325

Taro is lazy romanization of Tarou (first son) - yobina dated to 1600 in NCMJ Rev. Ed. p. 373

Hideyasu - nanori dated to 1332 in NCMJ Rev. Ed. p. 334


3: Ælfric Greensweard -New Name & New Device

Argent masoned sable, a bent cotised vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Ælfric [s.n. Ælfric] is documented to 930, 982 (2) in "The Names of Testators in the Cartularium Saxonicum Malmesburiensem" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/malmesbury-oe.html).

Greenweard is found in Reaney "A Dictionary of British Surnames" 2nd Ed. s.n. Greenward lists Adam Grenewerde dated to to 1276. This entry also lists the OE spelling of ward as 'weard' which the client prefers to go with his OE name. The spelling "Green-" is plausible in Middle English as an interpolated form. The Middle English Dictionary (MED) has the bynames Grenlef (1251) and Grenhond (1332), and the place name Greene Fayrfeld (a.1483). As we cannot combine Middle English and OE in the same name phrase without documentation that this was done in period, "weard" is also dated to a.1175 in MED.


4: Alban Dameron Elexander -New Household Name & Resub Device

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

Château Castelmore

Argent, a fleur-de-lys azure, in base two peacock feathers in chevron inverted vert, a bordure azure

No major changes.

Château Castelmore is mentioned as a place purchased by the historical Arnaud de Batz in 1565 in _The Four Musketeers_ by Kari Maund; Phil Nanson ISBN 978-0-7524-3503-9 pg. 13 (this is a treatment of the historical basis of the characters in _The Three Musketeers_)

Ogress found that the book _Memoires regles et statuts ceremonies et privileges des ordres militaires de Nostre Dame du mont Carmel et de S. Lazare de Ierusalem_, printed in 1649 refers to Castelmore; as a place name at the bottom of p. 70 (https://books.google.com/books?id=WeoCAAAAQAAJ). The relevant sentence says: "F. Charles de Gayan vint à la Grande Maistrise apres Frere Hugues de Castelmore par la nomination du mesme Roy Henry IV." which translates roughly as: "F. Charles de Gayan succeeded to the Grand Mastery after Brother Hugues de Castelmore upon nomination by the same King Henry IV."

We note that the historical Château Castelmore was the seat of the historical D'Artagnan. We don't think it's important enough to protect, but felt it should be mentioned.

Origional returned on the January 2013 LOAR: Alban Dameron Elexander. Device. Argent, in pale a fleur-de-lys azure and in saltire two peacock feathers proper, a bordure azure.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters were unable to reliably identify the peacock feathers as such.

This device is also returned for violating SENA A3D2c, which states "A charge group in which postures for different charges must be blazoned individually will not be allowed without period examples of that combination of postures." The charges here do not have comparable postures or orientations, but they also are not in a unified arrangement, as the pair of feathers in saltire must be blazoned separately in order to adequately describe their positioning." (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/01/13-01lar.html#236)

Second try was returned on the December 2013 LoAR: Alban Dameron Elexander. Device. Argent, a bend between a fleur-de-lis azure and a peacock feather proper, a bordure azure.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters were unable to identify the peacock feather, due to its rather squashed depiction. If the bend were drawn slightly narrower, there would be more room for a long skinny charge such as a feather. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/12/13-12lar.html#237)

Here is hoping the third time is the charm.


5: Aleksandra Toltsikovskaia -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Aleksandra - is found as a feminine given name in Paul Wickenden of Thanet "Dictionary of Period Russian Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/), s.n. Aleksandra, "Great Princess Aleksandra 1389"

Tolstikovskaia - Tolstikovskii is dated to 1471 in "Locative Bynames in Medieval Russia" by Paul Wickenden of Thanet (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/toprus.html). Wickenden Locative says the feminine ending for names ending in -ski is -skaia


6: Anastasia Tremayne -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2002, via Æthelmearc

Purpure, two ravens respectant and on a point argent a triquetra interlaced with an annulet vert, a bordure ermine.

Submitter's original device was returned via AEthelmearc in 2001/2002. This is a complete re-design.


7: Anna Czygan -New Name & New Device

Purpure, on a fess engrailled between two pairs of arrows in saltire and a pair of rapiers in saltire argent a natural seahorse purpure.

Anna is found in "Hungarian Feminine Names" by Walraven van Nijmegen (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/magfem2.html) where it is listed as the most common name in both the 15th and 16th C.

Czygan is an allowable Hungarian byname (Vitaros Czygan, A-Calontir, 3/2015, http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/03/15-03lar.html#192). "Ethic Bynames in Hungarian Names before 1600" [http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/hungarian.shtml] by Kolosvari Arpadne Julia cites Czygan with a first citation in 1389.


8: Aoife inghean Eoghain -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Aoife St.Gabriel report 1071 http://www.s-gabriel.org/1071

inghean Academy of St Gabriel Report 1071. http://www.s-gabriel.org/1071

"Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Eogan.shtml) documents this spelling for Middle Irish Gaelic (900-1200 AD) and Early Modern Irish Gaelic (1200-1700 AD), as the genitive form. [Eoghan]: "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Eogan.shtml) documents this spelling for Middle Irish Gaelic (900-1200 AD) and Early Modern Irish Gaelic (1200-1700 AD), as the genitive form.


9: Arionna of Shadowed Stars -New Name & New Device

Per fess azure and vert a lion passant between in anulo seven mullets Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (Wants the \'o\' in Arionna) most important.

The submitter wanted Arionna, which we could not document. We could document Arianna, which the submitter will accept if Arionna cannot be documented: "Arianna is found as a literary name in Il Petrarcha in 1574. Its use as the name of an important character who is a normal human being makes it eligible for the literary name allowance. Therefore, Arianna is registerable as an Italian given name."

'of Shadowed Stars' is a locative byname derived from an SCA branch. The 'Shire of Shadowed Stars' was registered in November of 1986 (via the Middle).

Submitter strongly prefers the submitted spelling, but will accept the spelling 'Arianna' if necessary for registration.


10: Bardas Arianites -New Name & New Device

Azure, two paw prints in bend sinister and a chief embattled argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Bahr-dahs) most important.

Bardas can be found in Bardas Xiphias' (Berret Chavez) "Personal Names of the Aristocracy in the Roman Empire During the Later Byzantine Era - Masculine Given Names: Masculine Given Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/byzantine/masc_given_names.html), dated to 1018.

Arianites is a family name in the same article (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/byzantine/family_names.html); it is dated to 1000 AD


11: Bryn Archer -New Name & New Device

Gules, on a fess between three dice argent a wooden bow proper

Bryn could be constructed from a 16th century English surname used as a given name. Bardsley s.n. Brine lists Thomas Bryn of Kilranny dated to 1586.

Archer is found as a byname in the article 'An Index to the 1523 Subsidy Roll for York and Ainsty, England' by Karen Larsdotter. Found at http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/york16/bynamesalphabetically.htm


12: Caitilín inghean Néill -New Name & New Device

Purpure, in saltire an arrow argent and a quill pen Or, a bordure argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Caitilín ? Found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals," by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Caitilin.shtml). Caitilín is dated to 1411, 1471, 1486, 1490, 1506, 1527, 1530, 1568, 1582, and 1592.

The byname inghean Néill is constructed from the given name Niall, found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals," by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Niall.shtml). The name covers a large range; the 15th and 16th century dates (to match the given name are 1461, 1467, 1484, 1493, 1497, 1497, 1498, 1501, 1508, 1516, 1531, 1545, and 1596.

This uses the genitive from that source and follows the rules from SENA Appendix A and doesn't lenite.


13: Chuck the Stubourne -New Name & New Device

Quarterly sable and gules, a cross potent Or between three bezants.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning most important.

Chuck is a late period English surname turned given name; the FamilySearch Historical Records have: Thomas Chuck married Joane Crey on 03 Nov 1617 in Alfriston,Sussex,England, batch M01385-2 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NVVN-R6T

Simon Stubourne is dated to 1332 in the MED s.v. stibourne. Given the ways in which adjectives are used in bynames, "the Stubborn" should at worst be a lingua Anglica form of a constructed byname like "le Stubourne."


14: Cobhlaith inghean Uí Chorragáin -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Cobhlaith - Appears as a female name in 'Index of Names in Irish Annals: Feminine Given Names 1201 - 1600' by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Coblaith.shtml) with the latest Annals date for the name being 1395

inghean Uí - the standard patronmymic byname indicating female affiliation with a family. (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname)

Corragáin - Appears as a surname in [Woulfe] p. 481, s.n. Ó Corragáin. Two spellings date to t. Elizabeth I-James I: O Corrigane and O Currigan. We believe the lenition to Chorragáin to be correct.


15: Dagmær Valdimarsdottir -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister argent and vert, a beehive between four bees in cross vert.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Valdemar) most important.

[Dagmær] is found in the Viking Answer Lady's "Old Norse Women's Names" as a women's given name, noting that it appears in the 14th century legendary saga Hálfdanar saga Eysteinssonar as the wife of King Þrándr and in Fellows Jensen.

[Valdimárr] is found in Geirr Bassi, pg. 15, as a male given name.The patronymic <Valdimarsdottir> is formed following the rules in on pg. 17, dropping accents.

Rouge Scarpe Note: After Pennsic I was contacted by the submitter that they would prefer the spelling <Valdemar-> for the patronymic. This spelling is more important than time period and they are fine if the form of "daughter" has to change to get this spelling. (Danish is her preference).

Reviewed - MdB


16: Dimitrii Medvedko -New Name & New Device

Argent, a chevron rompu between two axes blades to center and a Maltese cross gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

17: Einarr inn Kyrri Ǫlfúss -New Name & New Device

Einarr is a masculine name in Geirr Bassi p. 9

inn Kyrri is a byname in Geirr Bassi p. 25 meaning "quiet, gentle"

Ǫlfuss is a byname in Geirr Bassi p. 30, "Desirous of beer"

"[T]wo descriptive bynames are allowed in Old Norse, as long as they could describe the same person at a single time." [Cerric eldr vegandi, 2/2011 LoAR, A-Trimaris] The April 2012 Cover Letter permits Old Norse descriptive bynames to be registered in capitalized forms.

Possible conflict with Einarr inn kyrri Úlfsson (Jan. 2011, Lochac). Both syllables in the second byname (Ólf- vs. Úlf-) and -uss vs. -sson) have been changed under PN3C1 of SENA.


18: Eleanor Berwyk -New Name & New Device

The byname mac Cormaic can be documented from Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Cormacc.shtml), dated to many times from 762 to 1589. This is the post-1200 spelling; it is dated to 1259, 1278, and 1281.

The byname "the Archer" is a constructed byname. Reaney and Wilson s.n. Archer dates <Hugh le Archer> to 1199. This is wholly English form of the Anglo-French "le Archer." Per Appendix C, English and Gaelic elements can be combined if there is no more than 300 years between the elements. Clear of Fáelán mac Cormaicc (Jan. 2009, Middle) by adding "the Archer"


20: Henry Hankson -New Name & New Device

23: Janusz z Czerwien -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Old Item: Pawel z Grodzisna, to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (he\'s fine with changes to make the surname grammar work.) most important.

Janusz is a masculine given name dated to 1580 on pg 131 Zofia Abramowicz, Lila Citko, Leonarda Dacewicz. Słownik Historycznych Nazw Osobowych Białostocczyzny (XV XVII w.) [Historical Dictionary of Personal Names in Białystok (15-17th centuries)], Vol. II. Białystok: Instytut Filologii Wschodniosłowianskiej Uniwersytetu w Białymstoku, 1998.

z Cerwien https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Czerwien&oldid=664765933 Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czerwie%C5%84) says that Czerwien was a west slavic settlement located near the site of modern Czermno near Tyszowce. In the early Middle Ages the town was the administrative center of the so-called "Czerwien Towns". The town itself was destroyed by a Tartar raid around 1289. We ask for help in documenting period spellings of this locative byname.


24: Karayil of Chennai -New Name & New Device

Sable, on a lotus blossom affronty argent, a fox dormant purpure.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The feminine given name "kāṟāyil" is found in Irayari Vairavi's "Female Chola Names" (https://sites.google.com/site/vairavisca/Home/creations/indian-name-research). It's under the tab Thanjavur 2, dated to 1014. We believe it should be registerable in the simplified form without diacritical remarks as well.

The byname "of Chennai" is the lingua Anglica form of a period byname that at worst might have been used by Europeans for a woman from this area. While the modern city name is colonial, Wikipedia (s.n. Chennai) observes that "During 1st century CE, a poet and weaver named Thiruvalluvar lived in the town of Mylapore (a neighbourhood of present Chennai)." We believe that the modern city is the correct lingua Anglica form for this area.
