Avacal LoI dated 2016-11-15

Greetings from Rowyn Arden the Bard, Avacal Submissions Herald.
This month we have five submissions for your commentary.
Commentary for this letter will be closed on Friday 9 December 2016.
The Avacal College of Heralds will meet on Sunday 11 December 2016 at noon at Yule in Borealis.

1: Angar Skeggason -New Name & New Device

Sable, a heraldic monster consisting of the head of a lion and the body of a tiger, with a crown in base Or, on a bordure argent, an orle of chain sable.

Sound most important.

Submitter is from Borealis
Consulting herald is Arwyn of Leicester

Angar:
Prototheme <An> supported by PASE (http://pase.ac.uk) with the following examples:

<An>+<fred>, ANFRED 1: (m x) Dux, fl. 959, <An>+<frith>, ANFRITH 1: (1 xi) Witness, fl 1066; <An>+<na>, ANNA 1: (e x) Abbot, fl. 1022

Deutertheme <gar> supported by PASE with the following examples: <Al>+<gar>, ALGAR 1: (I xi) Horn, fl, 1081; <Ans>+<gar>, ANSGAR 1: (m xi) Persons called "Ansgar" in Doomsday Book: <As>+<gar>, ASGAR 1: Minister, fl, 1055.

Therefore a plausible Ango Saxon name can be constructed with <An>+<gar> to form <Angar> as per SENA PN.1B.2B(2).

Skeggason
<Skeggi> found in Geirr Bassi p 14. To form the patronymic <son of Skeggi> according to Geirr Bassi pg 17, replace the final "i" with "ason" to form <Skeggason>.

As per SENA C, Old English + Scandinavian can be compined. Therefore <Angar Skeggason> is a plausible registerable name.

Constructed monsters allowed as per SENA A2.B2C. A lion and a tiger forms a liger but only general monster description.

Restricted devices:
Chain: member was knighted 13 April 2002 via An Tir.
Crown: member is a Viscount as of 26 February 2000 via Avacal.


2: Avacal, Kingdom of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2016, via Avacal.

Griffins Paw, Award of

Submitter is the Kingdom of Avacal
Consulting herald: Sadb ingen Tuathail

Griffins: Awsten - England Deaths and Burials, 1538 - 1991, Male, Burial Date 24 Mar 1575, St. Botolph Aldgate, London, England, Batch Number B02101-4.

Paw: Middle English Dictionary http://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/med/lookup.html

s.n. paue (n.) (a) The paw of an animal.

C1440(a1350) Isumb. (Thrn) 181: So come a lyonne…And in hir pawes scho hent the childe.

Carillion, Barony of. Order name Order of Irons Bell and badge. (Fieldless) a bell per pale sable and Or. Submitted as Order of Irons Bell, the name was changed in Kingdom to Order of Iron to match the documentation that could be found <Nov 2014 LoAR>

The submitted form was documented as the constructed given name of a saint Iron followed by an object associated with him, a bell. This follows the pattern of Saint + Other in Juliana de Luna's article, "Medieval Secular Order Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/). German examples that use the possessive form of the saint's name are Ritterschaft sant Gergen Shiltz ("Knightly-society of saint George's Shield") and Geselschaft auf St. Wilhelms Schilt ("Society on Saint William's Shield"), in Germany and Austria, respectively. Siren noted after the Pelican decision meeting that separate German orders named after the same saints included the forms Jorgern ("George[rs]") and Die Wilhelmer ("The William[ers]") along with forms using the word "saint". There is no reason to think that the same variability could not happen with order names that include objects as well. Thus, we can allow order names following the pattern saint + other or saint + object of veneration to omit the word Saint before the possessive form of the given name.

Although such examples were found only in Germany, patterns of order names tend to be pan-European (i.e., similar patterns are used throughout Europe). Therefore, we will give the Barony the benefit of the doubt that the submitted name is also plausible in English, and can register this name as submitted.

Permission letter from the King and Queen of Avacal is on file with the Submissions Office.
