Ealdormere ILoI dated 2017-02-26

Unto the most noble Ealdormere College of Herald's and its most distinguished external commenters, come greetings from Rylyn Buchanan, Green Mantle Herald

1: Ana Yanka -Resub Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Old Item: Ana Ian'ka doch' Lisitsin, to be released.
No major changes.
Sound (Anyanka) most important.

Submitted originally as Ana Ian'ka doch' Lisitsin, and later registered as the holding name Ana of Ramshaven on the Sept 2015 LoAR.

Commenters were unable to find examples of matronyms where the mother's name was not modified. ffride wlffsdotter suggested instead the form Ana Ian'kina doch' Lisitsina, but adding the suffix -ina is a major change, which the submitter does not allow. Therefore, we are unable to register this name as submitted.

Upon resubmission, the matronymic marker doch should be changed to doch' to use a consistent transliteration.

This is a complete change in last name.

Ana - 12th-13th century variant of Anna, Christian name, in Wickenden 3rd edition. Also found in Paul Goldsmith's Dictionary of Period Russian Names, as found here: http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/a.html

Yanka - alternate "Revised English System" transliteration of Ianka, diminutive of Anna dated 1088, ibid. used as an unmarked metronymic.

Matronymic bynames are a name pattern that does not need further documentation in Russian per SENA, Appendix A. They are formed using the same grammatical rules as patronymic bynames per Wickenden. Unmarked patronymics are registerable in Russian by precedent of the September 2007 LoAR Cover Letter in the submission of the name Mariia Kotok with multiple period examples given. http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2007/09/07-09cl.html Admittedly, we have not found any examples of unmarked metronymics, which isn't surprising, given the rarity of women's names in general and metronymic names in particular. However, there is no grammatical reason to disallow unmarked metronymics (whilst allowing unmarked patronymics) since metronymics and patronymics follow the same grammatical rules.

Her armory has been registered under the holding name Ana of Ramshaven.


2: Bran Dalatún -New Name & New Device

Per bend sable and gules, two wolf's heads couped argent.

No major changes.

Bran is found as a given name, dated from 700 through to 1435 http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/

Dalatún is a family name dated from 1200 to 1700 http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/FamilyNames/Dalton.shtml


3: Cesare Ambrogino Salvuzzi -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2001, via Ealdormere.

(Fieldless) A winged lion coucant Or conjoined with a demisun inverted sable.


4: Emelote of Calais -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2009, via Ealdormere.

Per bend sinister sable and argent, a decrescent and a fleur-de-lys within a bordure all counterchanged

This badge was returned on the 08/2009 LoAR for the following reasons.

This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Agnes de Saint Michel, Per bend sinister sable and argent, a decrescent and a half-face mask in profile and stringed counterchanged. There is a single CD, for changing the mask to a fleur-de-lys.

This change will grant the second DC to clear this conflict.


5: Leòd Dubh -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2003, via the East.

Per fess vert and sable a serpent glissant palewise and in chief three goutes Or

This device was returned on the Jan 2015 LoAR....

This device is returned for conflict with the badge of William de Montegilt: Sable, a serpent erect reguardant Or. There is one DC for the field but no difference for the number of curves in the body nor for the orientation of the head of the serpent.

The addition of the goutes, should clear this conflict.


6: Mjoll Úlfsdóttir -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2010, via Ealdormere.

Or, a badger dormant sable marked argent within a bordure sable.

Old Item: Per bend sinister argent and sable, a ram's skull cabossed and a paw print counterchanged., to be released.


7: Mjoll Úlfsdóttir -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2010, via Ealdormere.

(Fieldless) a badger dormant sable marked argent.

The original badge was returned on the December 2015 LoAR, for the following reason:

Badge. (Fieldless) A badger dormant in annulo sable marked argent.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Here, the posture of the central charge impairs its identifiability. Additionally, no documentation was provided that this posture was used in medieval heraldry.

This is a more traditional posture.
