His original Name submission on the Avacal KLOI dated 2015-10-31 was returned with the following comments:

Sigfúss Einholtson. Geirr Bassi has "Sigfúss" on p.14 as a masculine given name. However, "Einholtson" has problems. The submitter has not shown a pattern of names beginning with Ein- and ending in -holti. Note the attested personal name is Holti (Geirr Bassi p.11) and in the genitive case it becomes Holta, hence Holtason.

Client has resubmitted the name, changing the byname and included new documentation.

His original Device submission on the Avacal KLOI dated 2015-10-31was returned with the following comments:

Argent, two ravens sable addorsed. Party per chevron gules, argent Chi Rho.
Is this a chevron or a base? Needs to be drawn appropriately. Birds need to be drawn in a more medieval style. Unclear what is issuant from base, feet/tail/wings.

The device has been redrawn in a more medieval style. The birds are not connected to the base.

9: William de Mowbray -Resub Name & Resub Device

Or, a wyvern within a bordure embattled vert, a semy of ivy leaves Or.

Submitter is from Kingsland.
Consulting Herald is Fáelán O Dálaigh.

Returned on the December 2014 LOAR with the following comments:

Name and device. Or, a wyvern passant bendwise vert and a bordure embattled vert semy of ivy leaves Or.

Unfortunately, this name conflicts with the registered William de Molay. The initial syllable can be pronounced identically, so the only difference is in the last syllable of the byname. The syllables -bray and -lay are significantly different in sound and appearance, but the change in one syllable is not enough to clear this name under PN3C2 of SENA:

Names are substantially different if a single syllable between them (excluding articles and prepositions, such as de and the) is changed in both sound and appearance as described here. Two names are also substantially different if a syllable is substantially changed in sound and appearance. This means that the vowel and the consonant (or group of consonants) on one side of the vowel is different between the two names. In either case, the change in spelling (including addition or removal of letters) must affect at least two letters in that syllable to be substantial.

In the present submission, the vowel (-ay) is identical, and only the initial consonant (or consonant cluster) is different (-l- versus -br-). Therefore, this name must be returned for this conflict.

The historical William de Mowbray, one of the 25 signers of the Magna Carta, is not important enough to protect. He was not a sovereign ruler of a significant state, and the signing of the charter was his most noteworthy act in our period.

This device submission is returned for redraw. The embattlements are too small and some commenters even missed their presence. On resubmission, please advise the submitter to draw the wyvern so that it is clearly sejant or erect.

Submitter has a letter of Permission to Conflict by William de Molay.

William - [Withycombe] 3rd edition, page 293.

de Mobray - Reaney and Wilson] Reaney, P.H. and R. M. Wilson. A Dictionary of English Surnames.

Submitter has redrawn the battlements and the wyvern is more erect.
