Atenveldt LoP dated 2016-11-08

ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS

LETTER OF PRESENTATION Kingdom of Atenveldt

8 November 2016, A.S. LI

Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baroness Genevieve de Lironcourt, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

This is the November 2016 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation, for the November 2016 LoP; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have your commentary made by 25 November 2016.

1: Areus of Sparta -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name on the Atenveldt LoI of June 20, 2016 as submitted.

Sable, a trident head Or and a bordure parted bordurewise wavy gules and argent.

Old Item: Azure, a horseshoe inverted within a bordure Or., to be retained as a badge.

The client's name change submission appears on the 20 June 2016 Atenveldt Letter of Intent. This takes the place of a badge resubmission for Phelan Ó Coileáin, Sable, a cross alisée gules fimbriated argent. The badge was returned by Laurel, September 2009, for multiple conflicts, including that for the Knights Templar.

A division of a bordure in a similar fashion is seen in the registered armory of Akastos Theodorou, Or, a calamarie inverted sable and a bordure parted bordurewise indented argent and sable. (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=33514)


2: Fenrich der Stürmer Hahn -New Name & New Device

Or, a dunghill cock rising contourny vert maintaining a spear bendwise sinister, a bordure reguly sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (as similar to Fenris as possible) most important.
Culture (German, 1480-1600) most important.
Meaning (the fighting rooster/cock) most important.

The name is German.

The client has been known as Fenris for years and wishes something more registerable. Meynhardt Fenrich Ophuss has a christening date of 5 August 1645 in Evangelisch, Kamen, Westfalen, Prussia; his father name was Fenrich Ophuss (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N63L-38W, Batch J95158-1).

der Stürmer Hahn is said to mean "the fighting rooster/cock," although http://www.collinsdictionary.com/translator shows stürmer as "one who is on (a labor) strike," rather than just pugilistic. Nevertheless, Stürmer is found as a German surname for Hans Wilhelm Stürmer with a christening datd 6 November 1603 in Barfüßer Klosterkirche, Heidelberg, Baden, Germany (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3ASt%C3%BCrmer~%20%2Bbirth_ place%3AGermany~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1400-1650~, Batch C93414-1); and

Hahn is found as a German surname for Ludwig Hahn with a christening date 18 July 1581 in Stuttgart, Wurttemberg, Germany (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AHahn~%20%2Bbirth_place%3A Germany~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1400-1650~, Batch C91613-1 ). Appendix A in SENA says double bynames are rare, so this might be possible if a "simple" descriptive byname like "the fighting cock" (minus der) is not permitted. (I hope a "simple" nickname might be possible.)


3: Granite Mountain, Barony of -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Order of the Emerald Heart of Granite Mountain

Per fess indented vert and sable, in chief a bezant charged with a heart vert, a bordure erminois.

Emerald refers to a precious stone, the color of that gemstone and to a brilliant color like that of the stone (in 1598, spelled as emerold, according to the COED).

Heart, in the COED, dates the meaning as "a figure or representation of the human heart; esp. a conventionalized symmetrical figure formed of two similar curves meeting in a point at one end and a cusp at the other. Also, an object, as a jewel or ornament, in the shape of a heart" to 1463: "The seid broche herte of gold to be hange, naylyd, and festnyd vpon the shryne". The modern spelling heart is used for a stylized figure in 1529 (referring to a playing card). It is also a charge seen in Parker (http://www7b.biglobe.ne.jp/~bprince/hr/parker/jpglossh.htm#Heart).


4: Granite Mountain, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Order of the Grace of Granite Mountain

The Middle English Dictionary, s.n. grace, includes quotes using that specific form to mean 'goodwill, kindness, favor, love' dated to multiple years between a1300 and a1500 (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED19175). Grace is a noun and not an object which is normally used in the construction of Saint + attribute. However, in this case, it is used to demonstrate by example the recipient's virtue. The addition of the locative avoids conflict with other Order names. (The definite article the might be best deleted to follow the pattern of orders named after abstract qualities.)

This is to be associated with the Barony's badge, Per fess indented vert and sable, a vol Or and a bordure erminois., registered April 2015.


5: Granite Mountain, Barony of -New Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Erminois Pursuivant

A Barony is entitled to have titled pursuivant. Parker cites erminois as an heraldic fur, Or with sable spots (pp. 234-5). Erminois appears in most of the Barony's armory.


6: Granite Mountain, Barony of -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Per fess indented vert and sable, in base an ermine spot Or, a bordure erminois.

This is intended as a populace badge.


7: Granite Mountain, Barony of -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Per fess indented vert and sable, in chief an ermine statant contourny regardant ermine, a bordure erminois.


8: Granite Mountain, Barony of -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Per fess indented vert and sable,an arrow and bow crossed in saltire Or, a bordure erminois.

This badge is to be associated with the name Order of Peregrine of Granite Mountain. The Order name was registered April 2015.

The original submission, Per fess indented vert and sable, a falcon rising Or and a bordure erminois., was returned by Laurel April 2015 for conflict; this is a redesign.

We feel that the primary charges are thin enough so as not to obscure the complex line of division.


9: Granite Mountain, Barony of -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Sable, an ermine spot Or, a bordure erminois.

This is intended as a badge for the fighters in the Barony. We believe it is clear of the device registered to Francesca da Trani, Sable, an ermine spot and an orle Or.; one DC for the orle vs. bordure, one DC for Or vs. erminois.


10: Ignacio Diaz de Castile -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Pean, on a tyger rampant Or a crescent gules, a bordure embattled Or crusilly Santiago gules.

This device was returned August 2016 for a redraw "for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters had trouble identifying the gules charges on the bordure. On resubmission, please advise the submitter to draw fewer and larger ermine spots." This has been redone.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of Adam Carlos Diaz de Castile: Pean, a tyger rampant within a bordure embattled Or charged with six crosses of Santiago gules.


11: Johnathan Crusadene Whitewolf -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1986, via Atenveldt.

Eber Hauer

Per bend raguly Or and argent, a double-headed eagle sable and a boar's tusk gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.
Client requests authenticity for language/culture (none cited).
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Meaning most important.

The client's primary name was registered October 2015 (a transfer from his deceased father).

I am assuming that the new alternate name is for a fighting unit, not a personal name, as documentation lists it as such. However, I think that as a unit, it might need a group designation.

The name is German, Eber Hauer meaning "boar tusks" (http://www.collinsdictionary.com/translator), in reference to a fighting unit that hails primarily from the Barony of Tir Ysgithr, which has a boar head on its armory.

The use of a tooth/tusk is limited because it is usually unrecognizable when used by itself (one sees them as "teeth" in skulls, the heads of boars, the heads of predators and monsters). The Pictorial Dictionary notes that a fang is visually equivalent to a drinking horn, and it has been disallowed for Society heraldry, due to its lack of ready identifiability. It does note that a tusk, an elephant's tooth, couped and with point to chief by default, is still permitted (http://mistholme.com/?s=tooth). The client might consider such a tusk, or even wolf's teeth, as his arms feature a wolf.


12: Maria of Venice -Resub Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in February of 2010, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: Mariyah al-Madiniyah, to be released.

The client's previous name change submission (from the registered Mariyah al-Madiniyah to Natasiia Novgorodova, currently in the 20 September 2016 Atenveldt Letter of Intent) has been asked to be WITHDRAWN by the client. She asks that this (Maria of Venice) be considered her name change.

Maria is a female given name dated to 1186, found in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames," Talan Gwynek, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Mary.

The client would like to have the locative rendered into Italian (da Venezia, I think), Venetian (perhap da Venesia), or even into Latin, if that would be possible, a form as early in period as could be done.


13: Mathias Steinson -New Name & New Device

Quarterly sable and azure, a butterfly bendwise sinister argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (German or Norse/Viking) most important.

Mathias is a German male given name dated to 1332, 1374 and 1388 in ""Medieval German Given Names from Silesia Men's Names" Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/bahlow/bahlowMasc.html).

Steinson is a nod to his legal surname, Stinson. It appears that there are a number of period German surnames Stein, but none like Steinson. On the other hand, there is an Old Norse masculine name Steinn ("Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html), which would give rise to the patronymic Steinsson ("A Simple Guide to Creating Old Norse Names," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html).

Appendix C in SENA allow the mixing of German and Scandanavian name elements.


14: Músa-Sunnifa -New Name & New Device

Azure, in bend three estoiles between two bendlets Or, all between two open books argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language (Old Norse) most important.
Culture (Norse) most important.

The name is Old Norse, and both elements are found in "The Old Norse Name." Sunnifa is a female given name, p. 15, and Músa-, "Mouse-," is a prepended byname, p. 26.


15: Nefratiri Ani -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 1984, via Atenveldt.

(Fieldless) A triskelion of human legs azure.


16: Valdis Skarpa -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2012, via Atenveldt.

Gules, a dragon couchant and on a chief argent three open books sable.


17: Viktoria of York -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2012, via Atenveldt.

Quarterly purpure and argent, in bend two dragonflies argent, and in bend sinister two crosses purpure.

The original submission, Per saltire purpure and argent, a dragonfly and a rose argent barbed vert seeded gules., was returned by Laurel July 2012 for presumption, for combining the byname of York with armory containing a white rose. "This is a violation of section XI.2 of the Rules for Submissions, and section A6E of the Standards for Evaluation, both of which discuss disallowed charge and name combinations." This is a complete redesign.

This new submission appears to be in violation of SENA's prohibition of marshalling, A.6. Armory Presumption F.2.c. Multiple Types of Primary Charges: When different sections of the field contain different types of charges, it creates the appearance of marshalling.

I have several questions that might help in resolving this issue:

Can this type of cross (really, an ordinary rather than a specific cross), be used in a divided field?

Is Per saltire purpure and argent, in pale two dragonflies and in fess two crosses counterchanged.,, permitted and clear of conflict?

Is Per saltire argent and purpure, in pale two crosses and in fess two dragonflies counterchnaged., permitted and clear of conflict?
