Caid LoI dated 2016-10-31

Unto Andrewe Laurel, Brunissende Wreath, Alys Pelican, and the College of Arms entire does Paul Crescent, on behalf of Estrith Dolphin and the Caid College of Heralds, send greetings and salutations.

We humbly request your consideration of the following submissions from our October 16th meeting. The bulk of these came from the consultation table at Great Western War. Ardgal Silver Mace did a masterful job of running Heralds' Point again this year, assisted by Manus Battlement, James Furison, Bruce Batonvert, Illuminada Chanson, Cormac Beare, Richard Oak Leaf, Elizabeth Beau Coeur, Selene Aurum, Arianna Foxford, Aritê gunê Akasa, and Hannah Story Teller. For all of their efforts, I am grateful.

1: Aðísla Frilla - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2015, via Caid.

Azure, on a pale sable fimbriated between two needles a drop spindle argent

The submitter's previous device, Quarterly azure and sable, two needles in saltire surmounted by a drop-spindle argent, was returned by Laurel on the January 2015 LoAR for conflict.

Originally submitted as Tierced per pale azure, sable, and azure, a drop spindle between two needles argent. Blazon was corrected, and fimbriation added per approval of the submitter to clear contrast issues.


2: Aðísla Frilla - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2015, via Caid.

(Fieldless) Five cubit arms couped, gripping in annulo, gules

Her previous badge, (Fieldless) Two needles in saltire surmounted by a drop-spindle argent, was returned by Laurel on the January 2015 LoAR for conflict.

There is a step from period practice for charges arranged in annulo, rather than in their default arrangement.


3: Alice le Sage - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2007, via Caid.

Azure, on a chevron inverted argent, two oak leaves stems to center vert


4: Althea of Caid - New Name & New Device

Althea is an English feminine given name found in FamilySearch Historical Records:

5: Amabel Radleigh - New Device

7: Amira bint Zakariya' - New Name & New Device

Amira bint Zakariya'

Per pale embowed counter-embowed argent and Or, in pale a rose fesswise proper slipped and leaved vert and a dragon sable

No major changes.

Amira is a feminine Arabic ism (given name) found in "Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices" by Da'ud ibn Auda (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm). Amira means princess and in an alternative title in the SCA so cannot be used with a locative byname (which is not the case here) (Amira de Kent, Lochac, June 2015)

bint Zakariya' is a feminine Arabic nisab meaning "is an Arabic term meaning "daughter of Zakariya''' Zakariya' is a masculine Arabic ism found in the same article.

The pattern of "<ism> bint <father's ism>" is found in the same article.

There were some questions about whether this ran afoul of unity of orientation issues. It was noted that as the slips and leaves of a rose do not count for difference, it should likewise not count for whatever orientation issues might arise.

We feel that the line of division is recognizable, that the sizes of the charges are sufficient to be co-primary, and that the dragon does not cross the fess line sufficiently to make it the sole primary.


8: Andrew Baird - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2003, via Caid.

(Fieldless) A chi-rho within and conjoined to a mascle Or


9: Briana MacCabe - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Caid LoI of February 29, 2016 as submitted.

Per chevron vert and azure, on a chevron argent three stone mills palewise sable

Submitter's previous device, with same blazon, was returned by Laurel for redraw on the May 2016 LOAR:

This device is returned for a redraw, for violating the guidelines set forth on the May 2011 Cover Letter for a properly drawn chevron. The chevron here is too high. Please see that Cover Letter for further discussion and details of how to properly draw per chevron lines of division.

The redraw addresses the cause of the return; the per chevron line of division was placed at 90 degrees with the midpoint of each arm located on the fess line, then shifted equally up and down.


12: Edith Daffe - New Name & New Device

Per chevron inverted gules and argent, a phoenix Or and three acorns proper leaved vert

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Edith is a feminine English given name found in Withycombe, 3rd. edition, page 93, which states: "Edith remained common all through the Middle Ages and never died out entirely, though it was infrequent from 16th to 18th C." It also appears in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames," by Talan Gwynek, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html, dated 1207.

Daffe is a surname found in Reaney and Wilson 3rd edition, Lefeke Daffe, dated to 1279.

13: Edmund Barlow - New Name & New Device

Gules, a stag rampant argent attired Or and on a chief argent three roses proper

Submitter desires a masculine name.

The submitter's devise of the same blazon was returned by Laurel on the July 2016 LoAR, stating:

This device is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms". Here, the cloud is not drawn in a period heraldic form, which precedent states is grounds for return.

This redraw addresses the reason for return.


15: Einrik von Houwinstein - Resub Device Change

Argent, a bear statant erect affronty sable, on a base azure a Roman helmet affronty Or

Old Item: Azure, a crescent and on a chief argent two bear's heads erased sable, to be retained as a badge.

His prior submission, Argent, a bear statant erect affronty sable between flaunches azure was returned by Laurel in Aug. 2015 for conflict. This redesign clears that conflict.

A couple of issues were brought up in internal commentary: The crest of the helm touches the top of the base, one of the bear's toenails overhangs the base, and the bear's posture appears to be trian aspect. With the submitter's permission, the device was redrawn to address these issues, as well as to correct the color of the base from gules to azure.


16: Elle Mallory - New Name

Elle is a feminine English given name found in FamilySearch Historical Records:

24: Hvitr Loðinbak - New Name & New Device

Ermine, two lynxes rampant addorsed guardant gules

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (White\Blonde Hairy Back) most important.

Hvitr is a Norse given name found in Geirr Bassi, p.12, meaning "white"

Loðinn is a Norse descriptive byname found in Geirr Bassi, p.25, meaning "hairy".

Bak is a Norse descriptive byname meaning "back" (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#b originally found in FJ = Fellows-Jensen, Gillian. Scandinavian Personal Names in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. Copenhagen. Akademisk Forlag. 1968. )

Precedent allows double descriptive bynames in Old Norse, provided they can apply to the same person, which these do. Noting that Geir Bassi contains two descriptive bynames with loðin with one N, loðinhoði (Shaggy-head) and loðinkinni (Shaggy-cheeked), we believe that the compound Loðinbak is a reasonable construction.


25: Ingriðr Viðarsdottir - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2015, via Caid.

Quarterly Or and vert, in bend two owls gules.

Old Item: Vert, in bend two dogwood blossoms argent seeded Or and a bordure argent, to be retained as a badge.


26: Isela of Silvercreek - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Is - Sell - Uh) most important.

Isela is the submitter's legal given name as seen on her CA drivers' license and school ID and attested to by James Furison and Manus Battlement.

Silvercreek is a constructed English place name, using the pattern of "Silver + topographic feature."

Silverside is listed in Bardsley's Dictionary of English and Scottish Surnames, p. 691. Silverdale (meaning "silver valley" dated 1320), Silverstone (meaning "silver village" dated 1260), and Silverton (meaning "silver ford" dated 1249) are all listed in Watts, p. 551.

"Creke," meaning "a small stream or brook" and used in a place name, is found in 1438: "Creke hire," as attested by the Middle English Dictionary, s.n. CRIKE, 1.(b), and is cited from The Place-Names of Cambridgeshire and the isle of Ely, Ed. P.H. Reaney, EPN Soc. 19 (1943), p. 254. (Http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=36523956&egdisplay=compact&egs=36529758). The more familiar spelling of creek is found in the OED, pp. 1158, and dated to 1592: "As Streams, with which their winding banks do play, Stopp'd by their Creeks, run softly thro' the Plain."

We believe that this allows the construction of Silvercreek as an English placename.


27: Ivan Kovachevich - New Name & New Device

Per pale azure and sable, a cross formy voided and interlaced argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

Ivan is a Russian masculine given name found in Dictionary of Period Russian Names, 3rd Edition, Wickenden, pp. 120-121, S.N, Ioann - Ivan in this spelling is dated to 1181.

Radenach Hous

Language (Old English) most important.
Culture (Old English) most important.
Meaning (Red Oak) most important.

The submitter's previous household name Radenach Sveit was returned by Laurel on the March 2015 LoAR for combining a Middle English substantive element with a Norse designator.

Appearing on the form as Radnache Haus, we have changed the spelling to match the documentation.

Radenach is an English placename found in Ekwall dated 1200, s.n. Radenage, from the Old English "reade ac", dative form "readan ac" meaning "red oak."

Hous is the Middle English word for "house, dwelling" found in the Middle English Dictionary (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED21360)

This follows the pattern of "placename + building" for English household names.

Kasha is a masculine Russian given name found in Wickenden 3rd edition, page 133, meaning "porridge", dated to 1495.

Ivanov syn is a patronymic formed from Ivanov, found in Wickenden, 3rd edition, p.120, under Ioann, dated to before 1147. In that source's Masculine Patronymics section, it notes that it was common to add the word syn (son) to the patronymic or to the "unaltered" form of the father's given name. Usually the word syn was placed after the patronymic (e.g., Gridia Timofeev syn Batutin [1538] [Tup]) but it could also precede the patronymic.


31: Kasha Ivanov syn - New Badge

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

(Fieldless) A winged fish haurient argent

Against the badge of Aladar Stensen (reg. Nov 2011 via An Tir), (Fieldless) A dragon's head erased sable gorged of a pearled coronet argent, there's a DC for fieldlessness and a DC for the coronet, which in this case is equivalent to a tertiary charge.

A similar count brings it clear of Drachenwald's badge for the Sigillum Regis of Drachenwald (reg. Jan 2014), (Fieldless) A dragon's head couped sable charged with the letters SC conjoined Or.


35: Kyra of Thera - New Name & New Device

52: Teka Turmanova - New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in March of 1998, via Caid.

Old Item: Teka Turmanov, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Originally registered in March 1998, as Teka Turmanov, the submitter is requesting the addition of a terminal 'a' to show a female name. If Turmanov is a patronymic, then this feminization follows the pattern given in "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html) for Feminine Patronymics. The original submission cited Unbegaun's Russian Surnames to document the byname (which is noted on p. 188 as meaning "tumble pigeon"), so were are uncertain if the byname is a patronymic or not, and we ask the College of Arms in help making a determination.

No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for time period: unspecified.

Waruuic is a male Old English given name found in Domesday Names, Idex Personarem I, page 266, dated to 1086

Silvercreek is a constructed English place name, using the pattern of "Silver + topographic feature."

Silverside is listed in Bardsley's Dictionary of English and Scottish Surnames, p. 691. Silverdale (meaning "silver valley" dated 1320), Silverstone (meaning "silver village" dated 1260), and Silverton (meaning "silver ford" dated 1249) are all listed in Watts, p. 551.

"Creke," meaning "a small stream or brook" and used in a place name, is found in 1438: "Creke hire," as attested by the Middle English Dictionary, s.n. CRIKE, 1.(b), and is cited from The Place-Names of Cambridgeshire and the isle of Ely, Ed. P.H. Reaney, EPN Soc. 19 (1943), p. 254. (Http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=36523956&egdisplay=compact&egs=36529758). The more familiar spelling of creek is found in the OED, pp. 1158, and dated to 1592: "As Streams, with which their winding banks do play, Stopp'd by their Creeks, run softly thro' the Plain."

We believe that this allows the construction of Silvercreek as an English placename.

There is a possible conflict with Alesia de Maris of Ravenstar, Per pale sable and Or, two ravens respectant counterchanged. (8/2011). One DC for orientation (respectant vs. addorsed) and we believe there's a DC between ravens (normal-shaped birds) and owls (raptor-shaped birds).

Oikos Ataraxia

(Fieldless) An Ionic column argent conjoined in chief to a silphium pod vert.

Meaning ((Unspecified)) most important.

Oikos (οἶκος) was used in the Greek version of the Bible to translate both "a house or dwelling" and "a lineage" (https://billmounce.com/greek-dictionary/oikos)

Ataraxia (ἀταραξία,"tranquility") is a Greek term used by Pyrrho and Epicurus for a lucid state of robust tranquility, characterized by ongoing freedom from distress and worry. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ataraxia)

A silphium pod is from the silphium plant, known to Egyptians and Romans, which was such an essential part of the economy for the North African city of Syrene that most of their currency featured the plant, or its pod. There is some speculation that the shape of the pod and its association with love that it became the iconic "heart shape" we know today.
