Atenveldt LoI dated 2016-11-30

ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS

Letter of Intent

30 November 2016

A.S. LI

Unto Andrewe Laurel; Alys Pelican; Brunissende Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,

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

The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms.

Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.

1: Areus of Sparta - Resub 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 and has been pended until the February 2017 meetings.

This takes the place of a badge resubmission for Phelan Ó Coileáin, Sable, a cross alisée gules fimbriated argent. It was returned by Laurel, September 2009, for multiple conflicts, including that for the Knights Templar. (That is, the payment for that returned badge is covering this new device change.) It is also a change for his current device; and so if registered, please retain his current device as a badge, Azure, a horseshoe inverted within a bordure Or.

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) and in the registered armory of Marie de Roelent, Argent, three sea-horses contourny azure, a bordure parted bordurewise wavy azure and argent

(https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=55064, http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/10/15-10lar.html#307 ).


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

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

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

The name is German. He 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 dated 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.


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," and is dated to multiple years c. 1300-c.1500 (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 registered 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). It appears in most of the Barony's armory.

We've based the name on the Ermine King of Arms, an heraldic title associated with Brittany and an important non-SCA title; An Tir saw it protected November 2008. (It was asked if Ermine Pursuivant could be used originally, but it would have been in conflict with the King of Arms title.)


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 pale an ermine statant contourny regardant ermine and an ermine spot Or, 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.

The Order name, Order of Peregrine of Granite Mountain, was registered April 2015.

The original badge 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: Honour Grenehart - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1999, via Caid.

Argent goutty de vin, a labyrinth azure.

The previous submission, Argent goutty de vin, a labyrinth azure., was returned by Laurel in September 2016 "for redraw. The gouttes should not appear in the argent portion of the labyrinth, as a labyrinth is a solid charge, but only be present around it. On redraw, please advise the submitter to use gouttes of a more period shape, with a longer wavy tail." This has been done.


11: 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 done.

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.


12: Maria de Venetia - Resub Name Change

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

Old Item: Mariyah al-Madiniyah, to be retained as an alternate name.

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 be considered her name change.

Maria as an Italian feminine name is found several hundred times between 1457 and 1557 in 2014 KWHSS paper "Names from 15th and 16th Century Pisa," Juliana de Luna, http://heraldry.sca.org/kwhss/2014/#Pisa.

The client asked for a more Italian or Ventian form of the name, originally submitted as Maria of Venice. Maridonna Benvenuti believes that de Venetia would be the medieval Latin spelling. "Dizionario di toponomastica. Storia e significato dei nomi geografici italiani.", UTET Libreria, print, s.n.Venezia: Il nome di Venezia è una forma dotta (riprende il classico Venetia)... . A translation: the name Venezia is a learned form from the classic Venetia. pp.814-5.

The Venetia spelling can be found in use in many Italian books when googling the name Venetia at Googlebooks. https://www.google.com/search?lr=lang_it&tbo=p&tbm=bks&q=Venetia&tbs=,bkv:f,bkt:b,cdr:1,cd_min:Dec+2 3_2+1449,cd_max:Dec+31_2+1625&num=10


13: Mathias Steinson - New Name & New Device

Quarterly sable and azure, a butterfly bendwise sinister argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (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. ffride wlffsdotter comments that Diplomatarium Norvegicum has: Jfuer Steinson, 1394 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=4103&s=n&str=Steinson), and Gudbrander Steinson, 1422 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=681&s=n&str=Steinson). "I think they're both in the nominative case, but they're certainly in Middle Norwegian (i.e., still Norse)."

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

This is clear of Anne of Caerdydd's badge: (Fieldless) A butterfly argent, wings tipped gules., and Kynedriþ filia Gerald's badge: Fieldless) A butterfly bendwise argent.


14: Músa-Sunnifa - New Name

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

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.
