1: Aurelia Cassia - New Name & New Device

Per pale azure and argent, a zydrach counterchanged.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Maintain Aurelia) most important.

Aurelia - Feminine form of Aurelius, seen in Aurelia Cotte, mother of Julius Caesar. This nomen is used in the society example for Roman names here:

Cassia - Feminine form of Cassius, found as a praenomen in Cassia Cornelia Prisca, wife of M. Aufidius Fronto, mentioned in The Religion of Senators in the Roman Empire: Power and Beyond (2010).

Because we could not document use of Cassia strictly as a cognomen the submitter is amenable to reordering the name to Cassia Aurelia in order to conform to the Imperial Roman period practice of using the cognomen as the given/personal name if it's necessary.

2: Caitriona inghean Fhionnghuala - Resub Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as CaitrĂ­ona inghean Fhionnghuala in December of 2008, via Trimaris.

(Fieldless) Issuant from a snail shell Or, a domestic cat's head in chief sable.

Originally submission returned on 09-15 LoAR:

"Badge. (Fieldless) A snail shell bendwise sinister inverted Or and issuant to chief a domestic cat's head sable with snail's antennae purpure.

This badge is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Although there are constructed monsters in medieval heraldry, components must remain recognizable. Commenters had trouble identifying the snails antennae."

Antennae were removed according to the advice of Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme.
