The name is constructed in the pattern of Given + Relationship as found in SENA Appendix A.

According to SENA Appendix C, names in the English/Welsh family (which includes Cornish) can be combined with Gaelic names.

The previous submission Brigid Madaidhin was on the Tir Righ ILoI dated 2015-08-27 and was returned by kingdom as the documentation did not support the combination of Brigid (which was not found except in very late period) with the patronymic Madaidhin so the name was returned with suggestions to the submitter on different options depending on her choice of time period. The submitter has chosen a different given name and modified the patronymic in this new submission.

The previous submission Per pale paly argent and sable, an Irish Wolfhound head erased contourny and in canton a shamrock Or was on the Tir Righ ILoI dated 2015-08-27 and was returned both due to issues with how the neck was erased as well as needing to be returned when the name was returned.

5: Hamelin L'Archier -Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Hamelin L'Archier in August of 2015, via An Tir.

Gules, a fess nebuly ermine, in chief a wolf passant argent.

Name was registered August 2015.

The submitter's previous submission Argent, a dragon's head erased gules collared and chained Or within a bordure lozengy azure and ermine was returned on the August 2015 LoAR for a redraw of the erased neck. This is a new design.


6: Hamelin L'Archier -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via An Tir.

Gules, a fess nebuly ermine.

The name was registered August 2015.


7: Kjartan kráka -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2000, via An Tir.

(Fieldless) A crow proper perched atop and sustaining an arrow bendwise reversed azure.

This name was registered in September of 2000 (via An Tir).


8: Kolbera Varsdottir -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via An Tir.

Quarterly argent and vert, a fox rampant proper, a point pointed plumetty vert and argent.

This name was registered in August of 2015 (via An Tir).

The previous submission Quarterly vert and argent, a point pointed plumetty argent and vert, overall a fox rampant proper was returned on the September 2015 LoAR:

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." As depicted, the fox overlying the point pointed obscures it and impairs the identifiability of the type of charge that is covered. This issue is further amplified by the fact that the point pointed shares tinctures with the field.

Additionally, no evidence was presented for a primary charge like this fox overlapping the base. There is evidence for overall charges overlapping a base, but only with an underlying primary charge completely on the field. Without evidence for this pattern in period armory, this arrangement cannot be registered.


9: Kolbera Varsdottir -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via An Tir.

Plummety vert and argent, a fox rampant proper.

This name was registered in August of 2015 (via An Tir).

10: Porzia di Corbino Rosso -Resub Device

Argent, five pomegranates gules, seeded argent.

This name currently in submission on the An Tir LoI 2015-10-31.

The previous submission "Argent, five balls in orle gules, in chief a pomegranate proper" was on the Tir Righ ILoI dated 2015-08-27 and was returned by kingdom for conflict with Medici, Grand Dukes of Tuscany (device registered December 1994 via Laurel): Or, in annulo six torteaux. Important non-SCA arms. There's a DC for the field, but nothing of type of one out of six charges.


11: Tir Rígh, Principality of -New Order Name Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2002, via An Tir.

The Order of the Amaranth of Tir Rígh

Old Item: Order of the Lily of Tir Rígh, to be released.
Meaning most important.

The order name follows the pattern of charge + branch.

The Online Etymological Dictionary (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=amaranth&allowed_in_frame=0) lists "1610s, from French amarante, from Latin amarantus, from Greek amarantos, name of an unfading flower, literally "everlasting," from a- "not" + stem of marainein "die away, waste away, quench, extinguish," from PIE *mer- "to rub away, harm" (see nightmare). In classical use, a poet's word for an imaginary flower that never fades. It was applied to a genus of ornamental plants 1550s. Ending influenced by plant names with Greek -anthos "flower."

In July 2015, an amaranth was registered in the device of Zoe Amaranta (Artemesia) with the comment "Although this form of amaranth appears to be native to the New World, it was known to Europeans by the end of period and thus is registerable with a step from period practice".

If this Order Name is registered, the submitter wishes to release "Order of the Lily of Tir Rígh. This award is given out by the Ladies of the Valorous Estate and the submitter is a representative of that order.


In service to Tir Righ, An Tir, heralds everywhere and the Dream!
