From Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 1193;

You asked for information about the 15th or 16th century Spanish surname

<de la Vega>. Here is what we have found.

The name <de la Vega> means "of the meadow", and was originally used for

people who lived in or near a meadow. The similar <Vega> and <de Vega>

appeared much earlier, either with the same sense, or meaning "from a place

called Vega". All three forms were in use in your period.

Juliana - ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 3009

http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/3009.txt

Most sources from late 11th-century Normandy were written in Latin, though the spoken language at this time was a dialect of Old French.

Below is a list of feminine names from late 11th- and early 12th-century Latin documents in and around Normandy... Lastly, we have added some

additional 12th-century forms found in other Latin-language documents

from France; these are marked with a plus sign. [3]

+ Juliana 12th c.

la Bedele

DRAFT: Names in the 1292 census of Paris by Sara L. Uckelman May 12, 2013

http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/1292paris.pdf

Chapter 3.3 - Bynames - page 106

The occupational bynames are gender specific; those with the feminine definite article la are appropriate for

women, and those with the masculine definite article le are appropriate for men. As a general rule, masculine

forms can be femininized by changing the article and adding -e to the end, e.g., le regratier and la regratiere.

(i) le bedel (5)

(ii) la bedele (1)

6: Sextus of Hartwood -New Name & New Device

Per saltire purpure and sable, a saltire vert fimbriated argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Praenomen 'Sextus' mentioned at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#praenomen

The praenomen (literally, "before name") was chosen from a short list of options and was often abbreviated. In Imperial Roman names, the praenomen functioned rather like the abbreviations Sr., Jr., and III in modern American naming: its presence indicated that the bearer came from an old and prestigious, or would-be prestigious, background. Praenomina were often inherited, and many families and lineages used only a subset of the possible praenomina. Some of the most common praenomina in inscriptions are listed below, with their standard abbreviations in parentheses.

Sextus (Sex.)


7: Tatiana Alexeivna -New Name & New Device

Azure a sunflower proper and on a base Or a cauldron sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

Wickenden 2nd Ed. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/a.html for both the given name and the root name from which to form the patronymic. Submitter will allow spelling changes to register the name.

- Wickenden 2nd Ed. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/a.html lists the masculine given name Aleksei dated to 1449. Alexeevna or Alexeivna is the expected feminine form patronymic.

(Aleksei -- "to defend." Aleksei Merkhidei, Pskov boiar. 1449 [Tup 250] Dims: Aleksa 13th-14th Centuries. [Lev 33])

- Tatiana is found as a variant of Tat'iana from 225

(Tat'iana (f) -- "to designate." Tat'iana, martyr. 1356. [Lev 3])

From Wreath: Sunflowers Proper

http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2007/07/07-07cl.html

In returning Cassandra von Schwabing's device in November 2000 Laurel ruled, "There is no default color for the seeds of sunflowers: sometimes they are black, sometimes brown. Therefore, we cannot register a sunflower proper." However, over the years we have registered several sunflowers proper. Some of these had black seeds, some brown seeds. We hereby overturn the November 2000 precedent and allow sunflowers proper to be registered. Just as a thistle proper can have its tuft either gules or purpure, a sunflower proper may have either brown or sable seeds. For purposes of conflict checking, the tincture of a sunflower's seeds is not worth a difference. The presence of these seeds does not count as a tertiary charge.


8: Tatiana Alexeivna -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) On a cauldron sable a sunflower proper
