Correction to Heraldic Title (2016-Aug-26 20:08:10): As stated in the comments, the pdf of the letter from Saran naming her as Herald Extraordinare has been received after the internal letter was submitted.
In addition, the following documentation that did not accompany the original submission has been received:
In SENA, under NPN 1. Non-Personal Names Content, section C. Standards for Designators and Substantive Elements, subsection 2. Sources of Designators and Substantive Elements,"
d. Borrowed Names: Name phrases may be borrowed from secular literature, from the Bible or other religious literature, or from the names of saints. Name phrases may also be constructed from name elements borrowed from those types of source. To borrow a name phrase or element, the following conditions must be met:
1. Linguistically Appropriate Form: The name phrase must be shown to be a form by which the entity was known in that time and place. Generally this means finding it in the literature of that time (so a Renaissance Italian Bible, or an English publication of an Arthurian romance). In the case of a saint's name, evidence for their veneration through the naming of churches is generally sufficient. Only the form of the name used in that culture is permitted under this allowance.
For example, the Greek mythological object known in English as the Golden Fleece was known to the medieval French as the Toison d'Or. It is Toison d'Or that was borrowed for the name of the period Burgundian order. Similarly, the saint known in her lifetime asÆhelthryth was venerated by late period English people as Audrey. Audrey is the form allowed in late period English context to create a name like the College of Saint Audrey.
This section notes specifically not only the form of color+item the submitter wishes to utilize in the construction of the submitted title, but the specific color of Golden.
Same section, subsection 2, under b. Constructed Name Phrases:
2. New Heraldic Titles Constructed from Attested Elements: New heraldic titles can be constructed by using attested elements in attested patterns for a given time and place.
For example, attested English titles include Blaunche Sanglier Pursuivant and Rouge Dragon Pursuivant. These can justify Rouge Sanglier Pursuivant and Blaunche Dragon Pursuivant. They can also justify the use of other animals or heraldic monsters, like Rouge Griffin Pursuivant or Blanche Leopard Pursuivant.

Concerning the registration of identical names for a household and a heraldic title, According SENA NPN.3.E, a designation change and permission to conflict is sufficient enough to register a heraldic title that conflicts with a household name. Permission to conflict has been submitted, as the submitter for this heraldic title holds the identical household name.
