A letter of populace support was included with this submission.

A letter of populace support was included with this submission.


3: Brigit ingen Niallain -Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Brigit ingen Nialláin in January of 2016, via the Middle.

Per chevron azure and vert, two sheafs of arrows and an owl close Or.

Device previously returned for violation of SENA A3D2c, so submittter changed arrow type (from 3 single to two sheafs) and the orientation (from bendwise to straight down).


4: Christian Atzinger -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Middle LoI of November 30, 2016 as submitted.

Gules, a goat clymant argent collared around the waist Or.


5: Einarr Ginnfastsson -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Middle LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Per saltire argent and gules, two Thor's hammers hafts to center gules.


6: Gwydion Glyndwr -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per chevron sable and vert, a hawk close and in chief three oak leaves Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Gwydion: Dated to 1308 in Morgan & Morgan, s. n. Boly

Glyndwr: Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 2127 (http://www.s-gabriel.org/2127) "...a contracted form of the place name which is <Glyndyfrdwy> in modern Welsh. It means "valley of the Dyfrdwy river"..."

Previous Submission was returned in Kingdom on the May 2016 ILoAR:

3: Gwydion Gwrando -New Name & New Device

Per chevron sable and vert two trefoils of oak leaves and a hawk migrant to chief Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name returned for lack of documentation for the byname. All that was provided was an unattested claim that <Gwrando> was Welsh for "listen". We were able to verify that

<Gwrando> does have that meaning but no indication that it was used as a byname or follows an attested pattern for Welsh bynames was found. Submitter would need to show that <Gwrando> was used in period as a byname or that it follows a documentable pattern of period practice.

Device returned along with the name. If the name had not had problems of its own the device would have been returned for redrawing for its own issues. The per chevron line of division is two low, it should extend above the mid point of the escutcheon so that it divides the field into roughly equal portions. Here the point of the line of division just reaches the fess line and the sable area is significantly larger than the vert. Commenters had difficulty identifying the oak leaves. The hawk was recognizable as a bird but not necessarily a hawk. There is a step from period practice for use of hawk migrant but that is the only one. Colored pencils are also not the best media, the sable specifically could use to be colored in darker and more solidly.


7: Gylden Broc Hus -Resub Household Name

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

Alys Mackyntoich (Blue Tyger (outgoing)) at 2015-06-08 21:41:42

Would could do this as an inn sign name, but likely not in Anglo-Saxon. And it would need to be House of the X or X House.

The pattern of color + animal in inn-sign names is fairly well established. It's found in "English Sign Names," by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/#ColorAnimal)

<gylden> as a variant of <golden> meaning "of a golden color" appears in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. gilden (adj.) dated to c. 1150.

The spelling <broc> for a badger appears dated to c. 1223 in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. brok.

<hus> is used for <house> in the place names Salthus (1243), Smauhuses (1250) and Bekhus (1260).

So maybe this gives us Gylden Broc Hus as an early Middle English inn-sign name.


8: Hakon Hrafnsson -New Badge
