An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2017-02-18

Greeting commenters!

This month's letter includes submissions from 12th Night & Ursulmas.

Thank you for all your help.

1: Akornebir, Canton of -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2001, via An Tir.

(Fieldless) A squirrel sejant erect gules maintaining a hunting horn argent banded Or.

This submission is to be associated with Populace


2: An Tir, Kingdom of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1981, via the West.

Lion's Mane, Order of the

The submitter hypothesizes that this might be an acceptable charge. Given the variety of body parts of lions (jambes 1413, tails c. 1460, as well as heads) and the use of hair charges (peruke and tress, both 16th c.), that a lion's mane is a plausible charge and hence registerable in an order name. Both words are dated to period in the OED.

Mane is also used in period to describe a person's hair, accordig to the OED. If that were considered a plausible term to describe one of those hair charges mentioned above, that might be another justification for the order name (with Lion here as a saint's name - as Lion is dated as a Dutch or English 16th c. name in the DMNES or a 14th c. French name).

Finally, given that the submitter already has Lion's Blood (Herald) and the Lion's Heart, as well as the Lion's Sword and the Lion's Rapier, registered to them, this construction should be grandfathered to them.


3: An Tir, Kingdom of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1981, via the West.

Sable Bonnet, Order of the

The OED (s.v. bonnet) dates bonnet, meaning "a head-dress of men and boys; usually soft and distinguished from the hat for want of a brim." The word dates to 1483; this spelling to 1597. Hats like this are clearly registerable as charges, as a period artifact. The Pic Dic s.v. hat dates several hats as charges to period; the modern French word for one such charge is "bonnet albanais," just to further support bonnet as a viable charge.

Sable is a heraldic tincture. It's allowed by precedent in order names.


4: An Tir, Kingdom of -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1981, via the West.

Scholar of An Tir, Order of

Checky Or and argent, a corner-cap sable

The submitter would prefer "the scholar" if a scholar could be justified as a charge (or some other justification for an order name). However, Scholar can be justified as a late period English given name: Family Source Historical Records dates Bennett Scholar to 1636 in TRURO, CORNWALL, ENGLAND, bath P00963-1. Given the pattern of creating given names from family names, Scholar is a plausible given name.

A corner cap is the early form of the modern mortarboard. The OED dates it to 1573 - we couldn't confirm if the modern form is the period one - we look forward to advice on depictions.


5: An Tir, Kingdom of -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1981, via the West.

Terpsichore's Fox, Order of

Checky Or and argent, a fox rampant contourny sable.

Terpsichore is the name of the muse of dance and chorus. Despite the fact that the OED does not include this citation, Baranbe Barnes 1593 _Parthenophil and Parthenophe: Sonnets, madrigals, elegies, and odes_ includes the line "Terpsichore, break off thy galliard dances!" So the muse was known in England before 1600. The submitter prefers the lingua Anglica Terpsichore's if it can be justified.

Fox is dated to c. 1200 in that spelling in the OED. The Pic Dic indicates that it's a period charge.


6: Ari Hrafnason -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2016, via An Tir.

12: Gey Sha of Dragon Haven -New Name & New Device

Per pale Argent and Or, three fleur-de-lis Sable

Sound most important.

Boar note-summary of attached documentation:

Gey Hyll, male, christened 1560. England. Batch no. P01663-1

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1 :1 :N5MX-CBF

Godfrey Sha, male, married 1598, England. Batch no. MO4993-6

https://familysearch.org/arkzl61903/1 :l :NVYX-83G

So you *could* register "Gey Sha of Dragonhaven" or, since i and y often switched in English spelling at the time, "Gei Sha of Dragonhaven"

Per LOAR May 2008 -haven IS allowed due to the following period evidence:

"-haven in constructed English place names. When this element was ruled SCA--compatible as a deuterotheme in English place names, the only examples that had been found to that point appended the element Haven to an already existing place name. Since then, examples have been found of -haven used as a genuine deuterotheme, in Whytehauene 1279 and Whithaven 1535 (Watts s.n. Whitehaven), and Kihavene, Kyhavene c.1 170-1316 and Kayhaven 1532 (Watts s.n. Keyhaven)." http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2008/05/08--O5cl.html

Dragon Haven

Using this article, medievalscotland.org/jes/EnglishCompoundPlacenames/

Most of the examples we have are <place name + haven> or <adjective + haven>, but Keyhaven is glossed as "the cow's haven". I note that R&W, s.n. Dragon has a person known as "atte Dragon" (inn-sign name), that could lead to an unmarked form. So byname Dragon + toponym -haven.

MED: Dragon (1166) in Pipe R.Soc.9 44: Walt. Dragun. (1199)

25: Kata Jóhansdottir -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of November 30, 2016 as Kata Johansdottir.

Per chevron argent and gules an increscent decrescent and a sun counterchanged.

Previously returned at kingdom Nov 2016:

Kata Johansdottir. New Device. Per chevron argent and gules, two cinquefoils and a sun counterchanged.

Unfortunately, this design conflicts with the device of Anna Donnelly, registered May 2001 via the Middle: Per chevron argent and gules, two roses and a unicorn's head couped counterchanged. Per precedent, there is no difference granted between a rose and a cinquefoil, and thus there is only one DC between the submitted device and Anna's, for the change of half the primary charges (unicorn's head to sun).

Submitter branch is Wastekeep

Previous submission returned Feb 2016 LoAR:

Mickel Morganwc. Device. Per bend Or and azure, a tree eradicated proper and a spoon bendwise inverted Or.

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation" The charges here are not in a unified arrangement, as the bendwise orientation of the spoon has to be described independently of the default orientation of the tree.

34: Rauðkinn Starradóttir -Resub Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in August of 2008, via An Tir.

Old Item: Misty of Madrone, to be released.
No changes.
Meaning (Red cheek 10th c Norse) most important.

Name previously returned on May 2008 LoAR:

Rauðkinn eyverska Starradottir. Name.

This name consists of three bynames and no given name in violation of RfS III.2.a, which says "A personal name must contain a given name and at least one byname." The name Rauðkinn was documented as a descriptive byname. The submitter provided some examples of Old Norse names found both as descriptive bynames and given names. However, we do not believe these examples are sufficient to support Rauðkinn as a given name. Metron Ariston explains:

The problem, as I see it, is that, while some Old Norse names do appear both as given names and as bynames, the evidence that the given names are derived from the meaningful bynames rather than constructed from a pool of dithematic components does not seem to have been established. Given that certain components appear to have gone into the name pool in Germanic languages fairly early on, many of them no longer should be interpreted as having intelligible meaning in Old Norse just as in Gothic or Old English. Was someone who bore the name Álfgeirr really thought of as "Elf Spear" or Rauðúlfr as "Red Wolf"? I suspect not. What is really needed is some evidence that both parts of the constructed name were used as elements in the given name pool in Old Norse. With the "red" part of the name, there is no problem since one can point to several instances from Geirr Bassi alone both as a stand-alone element (Rauðr)and as the first element in a dithematic name (Rauðbjǫrn, Rauðúlfr). However, I have been able to find no instances where kinn or any clearly cognate form is used in the Norse given name pool (or in any of the equivalent Germanic languages either at this point). As a result I would not consider this a reasonable given name construction. (Incidentally, while I find the runic lexicon used so heavily in the submitter's documentation to be an invaluable resource, I also tend to use it very carefully both because so many of the forms are readings filled in on the basis of known lexical forms to make sense of broken inscriptions and because so many of the inscriptions are highly structured memorials whose conventions are not nearly as well determined at this point as, for instance, those of Greek grave stelae or Latin curse tablets upon which we can rely for less well-attested name forms in those languages.

As we know of no Old Norse name similar in sound and appearance to Rauðkinn, we are unable to replace it with a registerable name. Therefore, we are forced to return this name.

Rauðkinn is found on page 26 in Geirr Bassi as a by name meaning "red cheek"

stari is found in Cleashy, Richard and Gudbrandr Vigfusson, An Icelandic English Dictionary 2nd Ed Oxford: Clarendon1957 p. 589, s.v. stari; and in Lena Peterson, Nordiskt runnamnslexikan

Boar Note summary attached documentation using text recognition service so there may be some spelling or grammatical errors from the tool:

My given name that I have chosen is actually a Norse byname. However, I can document the frequent use of by-names as personal names in Old Norse:

(1) There are a large number of Old Norse personal names, both masculine and feminine, which are also in documented use as by--names;

(2) more Old Norse personal names can be shown to exist only as by-names in Old Norse literature, only to appear as personal names in runic inscriptions; and

(3) there are many examples of by--names in Old West Norse (the major source of Geirr Bassi Haraldsson's name info) that appear as personal names in Old East Norse sources, and vice--versa.

Given these points, it is not unreasonable to expect that Rauðkinn might also have been in use as an Old West Norse feminine personal name which was unrecorded, made all the more likely by the relative scarcity of feminine names that have been recorded from Old Norse in comparison to the large number of masculine names. 'This complies with the Rule for Submission II.3.

The remainder of the documentation provides examples from the submitter.
