Northshield, Kingdom of. Heraldic title Duco Herald.
Submitted as Ducere Herald, ducere is the Latin infinitive "to lead". However, no documentation was submitted and none found showing the use of verbs in the infinitive in Latin mottos. However, Ursula Georges's "Heraldic Latin Mottoes" has several examples of Latin mottos using the imperative voice, and several more using the first person singular. This latter seems more common that the simple imperative. We have changed the name to Duco Herald to match forms found in period mottos.
Ursula Georges does note that she has found no examples of heraldic titles formed from Latin mottos. However, there is a general pattern of titles so formed. Therefore, forming a heraldic title from a Latin motto is one step from period practice.
Based upon that the client has approved the change to Nuntio.
Correction to Heraldic Title (2017-Jan-16 19:01:33): This is a the mistake of a new Submission Herald; the two items should not be paired with one another. This is not going to be used as a Heraldic seal, but only as a personal badge.
