Calontir LoI dated 2017-01-31

Buenas días to the Society Sovereigns of Arms, and the esteemed Laurel staff from Shandra Saker.

Herein is our Letter of Intent for consideration, based upon the commentary of many esteemed heralds from around the Known World. The Calontir College of Heralds requests the registration of the following items:

This item was on the 04-2017 LoAR

1: Acelin Macrae - New Name

Sound (given name sounds like) most important.
Spelling (surname spelling Macrae) most important.

Acelin - masculine given name found in Withycombe, "English Christian Names", 3rd ed. pg. 2, a diminutive of Old French {Asce}, dated in this spelling to 1273.

Macrae - Jeane Macrae, female, christened 7 November 1652 in North Leith, Midlothian, Scotland, the daughter of Patrick Maccrae. Batch #C19506-1 URL: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTRP-Z4D

surname. Black s.n. Macrae has <McRay> from 1476 and <Mackcrae> dated to 1650

<James Macray of Pardowis> appears in a Scots language document dated 19 May 1584 in the "Records of the Parliaments of Scotland to 1707" http://www.rps.ac.uk/

"Publications of the Scottish History Society" (T. and A. Constable, 1917) at p. 639 has an excerpt of a Scots language document dated to 1646 containing the name <Robert Mackrae>. http://books.google.com/books?id=wAEdAAAAMAAJ

The February 2002 registratioin of Evelyn Macrae (A-Outlands) states:

No evidence was found that Macrae is a plausible spelling before 1600. Black (s.n. Macrae) dates numerous other spellings to period, but none have 'ae' in the second syllable. However, since Mackcrae is dated to 1650 (just at the end of the "gray area") in this entry, the submitted spelling is registerable. Since the submitter had no request for authenticity, we have not changed the spelling of Macrae to a period spelling.

2: Aileth Semere - New Name & New Device

Argent, on a fess wavy between three Lacy knots purpure an oriental dragon passant argent.

Language (English or Anglo-Saxon) most important.
Culture (English or Anglo-Saxon) most important.

Aileth - English given name dated to 1198 in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Talan Gwynek http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html

Semere - English surname found in "A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Reaney and Wilson, s.n. Seamer, p. 398, John Semere dated to 1327


This item was on the 04-2017 LoAR

3: Andromir Vukovic - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling (Vukovic or Vuković, NOT Vukovich) most important.

Andromir - constructed Slavic given name

Andro - prototheme found in several names, including Andro-gast, Andro-n, and Andro-nik, in "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names" by Paul Wickenden of Thanet. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul

-mir - deuterotheme also found in Wickenden (ibid), including examples "adi-mir, Predi-mir, and Zvoni-mir.

Vukovic - Patronymic byname of Vlatko Vukovic (d.1392), first ruler of Hum/Hercegvina (Kosaca family). Defeated the Turks at the Battle of Bileca, 27 August 1388. http://mokrolive.info/zaboravljeni-grob-vlatka-vukovica/ Paper copy and translated paper copy provided.

Vuk - found in Wickenden (op. cit.) "Vuk (m) - Vuk. 1419. [Mor 51]" The source of this name is listed as Moroshkin, Mikhail. Slavianskii imenoslov ili sobranie slavianskikh lichnykh imen. Saint Petersburg: n.p., 1867.

We believe <Vuk> is Croatian, rather than Russian, therefore the Croation patronymic ending is appropriate.

"Early Croatian Given Names" by Walraven van Nijmegen states, "Those few individuals recorded with a byname have a patronymic, formed from the father's name. These may be simply the father's name unmodified, or a constrction formed by adding -ov or -ovic." https://s-gabriel.org/names/walraven/croat/

4: Ashland de Mumford - New Name & New Device

Purpure, on a pile throughout cotised issuant from sinister argent, a wooden bow proper nocked with a needle threaded purpure

Ashland - late period English surname, Richard Ashland, married 01 Dec 1600, Cambridge England, batch M01648-6, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NNDR-PQD

de Mumford - English surname, Reaney & Wilson, s.n. Montford includes Simon de Mumford, 1242

By precedent, a late period English family name can be used as a given name. [Alton of Grimfells, 04/2010, A-East]

The two name elements here are both English and easily within 500 years of each other.

17: Ren Jie - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2016, via Calontir.

Argent, in fess an Oriental dragon rampant contourny gules and a Chinese maiden statant affronty proper crined and vested sable

Original device returned on the 6/2016 LoAR:

Argent conjoined in fess an Oriental dragon "glissant" palewise contourny gules and a Chinese maiden statant affronty proper crined and vested sable.

This device is returned because it runs afoul of SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms" The depiction of the human figure does not match documented depictions of period Chinese women.

This device is also returned for violating SENA A1C which requires an emblazon to be describable in heraldic terms. There is no clear heraldic way to blazon the interaction of the human figure and dragon, with partial overlap and the posture of the dragon cannot be described in heraldic terms.

There is a step from period practice for the use of an Oriental dragon.

During the kingdom decision meeting, it was discussed that there may be a potential Unity of Posture issue here. We decided that a quadruped (Oriental dragon) and a biped (Chinese maiden) do not have comparable postures, and thus there is no UoP issue, but we leave the final decision up to Wreath.

Argent semy of pheons inverted gules, a pall sable surmounted by a serpent vorant of its tail purpure
