Meridies ILoI dated 2017-03-01

I, Lord Ulrich Eisenhand for the Kingdom of Meridies, send greetings unto Maistreas Flannait inghean ui hEighnigh, Beacon Herald; Señor Carlos Blanco el Barbero, Pennon Herald; and the commenting heralds of the Meridies Internal Letter of Intent Commentary list.

It is the intent of the Meridian College of Heralds to submit the following names and armory as part of the next external Letter of Intent published by the Pennon Herald.

The pleasure of your response to Pennon is requested no later than March 21, 2017. A decision meeting is tentatively set for the following Tuesday after the 21st. Any changes will be announced through proper channels.

1: Adelina Ravenild -New Name & New Device

Ermine, an owl close guardant maintaining in its talons 3 arrows fesswise sable, a base embattled vert.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Adelina - Feminine given name, found in the article "Feminine Given Names Found in the 1332 Lay Subsidy Rolls for Lincolnshire, England" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien). It is found once with this spelling. https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/LincLSR/GivenFeminineFreq.html

Ravenild - Metronymic byname, found in Academy of St. Gabriel Report 2031 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2031+0). The report cites Reaney & Wilson (s.n. Ravenhall) and Bardsley (s.n. Ravenhill).

<Ravenhild> is an English borrowing of the Old Norse feminine name <Hrafnhildr>, one of many names borrowed by the English from the Scandinavians. It was still in use in Yorkshire in the late 13th century, and in the 1270s it also appears as a metronymic in Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire, and Kent; it would be a fine choice of byname for your period. However, we have not found the spelling <Ravenhild>. The usual spelling, used in three of our four examples of the metronymic, seems to have been <Ravenild>. [11, 12, 13] Other names ending in <-hild> typically also show this loss of <h>, so we recommend that you use <Ravenild> or, since <v> and were interchangeable at that time, <Rauenild>."


2: Amena Ellara -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Meridies LoI of November 30, 2016 as submitted.

Per chevron purpure and sable, a lotus blossom in profile and in chief two dragonflies argent.

Previous submission, "Per chevron purpure and sable, conjoined in pale a dragonfly statant and a lotus in profile argent," was returned by Kingdom in November 2016.

Must be returned for further work.

This device is in conflict with Valdisa Álarsdóttir February of 2012 (via Atenveldt):Per bend sinister vert and sable, a dragonfly and a lotus flower in profile argent. The submitter only gets 1 DC for the change of field.

Secondly Insects with documentation only has the one posture of being view from the back.

Also the posture of the dragonfly makes it close to being pictorial (SENA A3F1). This is because the posture causes the wings to be a different size making the device to look three dimensional.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:
