1: Cunegonde van den Bossche -New Name & New Device

Gules, a seeblatt argent and a bordure gyronny argent and azure.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (13th c. Dutch) most important.
Language most important.

The submitter notes that there are a lot of spelling varients and she is looking for the closest to what she has been using (Cunegonda) while remaining accurate for the 13th century Netherlands (Utrecht specifically). She also says she would really like to keep the "C" rather than the "K" variations. She says she is very flexible with the ending "a" changing to an "e" (which is what she has submitted), the "o" changing to a "u", and (if necessary) the first "e" changing to an "i", etc.

There are two saints with this name: Cunegonde of Luxembourg and Saint Kinga (also Cunegunda and various other spellings).

Names in the Low Lands before 1150 by Kees Nieuwenhuijsen http://www.keesn.nl/names/en43_list_f.htm gives the name Cunegunda with alternate spellings of Conegundis, Conegunt, Cunigundam.

Geneanet http://gw.geneanet.org/pierfit?lang=fr&p=cunegonde&n=de+lorraine gives details on Cunegonde de LORRAINE (died 1214) who was married to Valeran LIMBOURG IV, Duke of Limburg, Count of Limburg and LUXEMBOURG.

Medieval Lands: Lower Rhine, Nobility http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FRANCONIA%20(LOWER%20RHINE).htm spells the name Cunégonde de Lorraine.

Genealogie Online https://www.genealogieonline.nl/stamboon-kyle-willemse/I12964.php%20(genealogieonline) lists CUNEGONDE VAN VIRNENBURG

(NOTE: This link did not work for me so I've attached the scanned image - Red Flame)

The name continued to be used as shown in a lawsuit from 1671 Ulrecht Archives http://www.hetutrechtsarchief.nl/collectie/archiefbank/indexen/akten/zoekresultaat?mivast=39&miadt=3 9&mizig=199&miview=ldt&milang=nl&micols=1&mires=0&miolie&mip4&mip3&mip1=u080a002&mip2=58 although the actual document appears to have the name spelled Cunigonda (images attached)

The previous submission "Marguerite Dubois" was returned for conflict with Marguerite du Bois, registered in May of 2004. The submitter has added an additional byname to clear this conflict. The literal (loose) translation is "Marguerite who lives in the woods by a spring. The persona is French Huguenot living in Holland in the late 16th C.

The spelling of Fonteijne is early dutch - still in use today, and preferred to the French "Fontaine" however changing to the french variation would be acceptable.
