Kingdom of Atenveldt

Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baroness Genevieve de Lironcourt, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

Post-Martial Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

This is the March 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation, for the March 2017 Letter of Intent; it precedes the Letter of Intent with commentary made internally via OSCAR. The vast majority of submissions seen here were accepted at Estrella XXXIII. Please have your comments made by 25 March. For the record, there was no February 2017 Letter of Presentation or February 2017 for the Kingdom of Atenveldt.

1: Adelaide Duval -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister argent and vert, three roses purpure and a dagger bendwise sinister inverted argent.

<Adelaide> appears at p. 224 in "Sommaire de l'histoire des François," Nicolas Vignier, published in 1579 (http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k123210f/f249" ). Also noted in the May 2012 LoAR for Adelaide of Alyngton , which states: "...the Latin spellings Adalhaidis and Adalheidis are both used, as is the vernacular spelling Adaleide. This is sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt regarding the plausibility of this spelling at an earlier time." http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/05/12-05lar.html

<Duval> is a 16th C. surname found in "Sixteenth Century Norman Names," Cateline de la Mor, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/norman16.html.

<Rothais> is an English byname dated to 1086 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 383 s.n. Rose.

The client asked for seven mullets on the chief. Putting them in a row really cramped them, and so she opted for the two lines of mullets. Can this be specifically blazoned as "seven mullets three and four"? Could it be blazoned as "semy of seven mullets"?


5: Beth Drache -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in June of 2015, via Atenveldt.

10: Dominic de Grae -New Name & New Device

Vert, an owl stooping argent, on a chief wavy Or a moon in her plentitude azure between two mullets vert.

<Dominic> is an English masculine name, entering popular use with the saint's name and his Order's creation (S. Dominic, 1170-1221), Withycombe, 3rd edition, p. 85).

<Grae> is dated to 1572 in an English marriage record for Harriet Grae (Batch M05840-2, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKG5-MQ1).

The particle <de> is seen in the registered names of other members of his household, Sutton de Grae and Hunter de Grae.

We're not sure if the owl would be facing the viewer, as it is in its default orientation, but it's a lot more identifiable if it is.


11: Donwenna Dwn -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2006, via Atenveldt.

Per chevron gules and sable, three walnuts and a Catherine wheel Or.

The name is Old Norse, with all elements in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name. <Eirikr> is a male given name, p. 9.

Can the quills be tinctured in this manner? It's a nice and simple design.


13: Eoghan MacIver -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in July of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: William MacIver, to be released.

The current name was registered July 2016. If the new name is registered, release the old name.

<Eoghan> is found in "Scottish Gaelic Given Names: For Men, Draft in Progress Edition," Sharon L. Krossa, with at least one example found of the name 1501-1600 (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/gaelicgiven/men.shtml#e).

The name is Irish Gaelic.

The familial particles are probably more accurate as <inghean Uí>, the feminine form for clan affiliation bynames in Early Modern Gaelic, per Sharon Krossa's "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname).


17: Finna Ívarsdóttir -New Name & New Device

Argent, two ovoid annulets conjoined in fess at their smaller ends gules.

The name is Old Norse with elements found in "Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html.

<Finna> is a female given name.

<Ívarr> is a masculine given name.

According to "A Simple Guide to Creating Old Norse Names," Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html), a patronymic construction for a woman is made as -rr → -rs, hence Ívarr → <Ívarsdóttir>.


18: Friedrich Swartzen Hut -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2015, via Atenveldt.

Lozengy argent and azure, a Capotain hat sable.

The previous submission, Lozengy bendwise azure and argent, a hat sable., was returned "for not being reliably blazonable, a violation of SENA A1C which requires that the submitted emblazon must be reproducible by a competent heraldic artist, with only normal heraldic variation, from the written blazon. Because hats have always shown a huge variety of shapes and size, we cannot define a "generic" standard hat. All registerable hats would need to be clearly defined so as to be reproducible from the blazon. Here the form of hat used was not documented to period."

This hat is also called a <capatain> or <copotain>. It is a tall-crowned, narrow-brimmed, slightly conical hat, usually black, worn by men and women from the 1590s into the mid-seventeenth century in England and northwestern Europe. Earlier capotains had rounded crowns; later, Like later capotains, the crown is flat at the top. It was especially associated with Puritan costume in England in the years leading up to the English Civil War. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capotain)

<Sofia> is the capital city of Bulgaria; after a long history, by the 14th C., it had fallen to Ottoman rule, while in the past, it had been handed over to various nations and rulers (http://bulgariatravel.org/en/object/234/sofia).

SENA Appendix C allows for the mixing of Italian and Southern Slavic name elements.

Correction to Device (2017-Mar-17 18:03:58): The blazon ought to read "Per pale gules and azure ermined ARGENT...." Sorry for the miscoloring!


22: Grimald the Faithful -New Name & New Device

Per pale Or and sable, two badgers rampant addorsed counterchanged marked argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Norman English) most important.
Meaning (given name means "bald helmet") most important.

The name is English. <Grimald> is dated to 1002-4 as a birthdae for Grimald de Plessis (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:SBS5-DNZ).

The descriptive <faithful> appears in the early 14th C. as "sincerely religious, devout, pious" (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=faithful).


23: Hallbiǫrn Freysgoði -New Name & New Device

Vert, three drinking horns fretted in triangle mouths inward and on a chief Or, four Futhark runes Algiz vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (priest of Frey) most important.

The name is Old Norse. <Hallbiǫrn> is a masculine given name in "Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html.

<Freysgoði>, "priest of Frey," is found in "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html.

The blazon of the drinking horns is borrowed from charges seen in the badge of Grímólfr Skúlason, Gules, three drinking horns fretted in triangle mouths inward and on a chief argent a valknut between two ravens respectant sable.


24: Hannah Millican -New Name

<Hannah> Abbott has a christening date of 1622 in Honiton on Otter, Devon, England, Batch C05114-1 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AHannah~%20%2Bbirth_plac e%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~).

<Millican> comes from the Gaelic Maolagan, "little bald/shaven one" (a priest or monk), Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 310, s.n. Millican (header), Millikin et al.


25: Hildegard Reinharet -New Name & New Device

Per fess vert and argent, a crescent argent and a domestic cat's face sable.

The name is German. <Hildegard> Dietrich has a christening date of 1577 in Neuenstetten, Baden, Germany Batch C93303-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NC8P-HHY).

While there are a number of Rheinharts and Reinhards and similar names out there, I cannot find the spelling <Reinharet>. Can anyone help out? (The client will be happy to choose a documented spelling if Reinharet comes up empty ir a post-period version.)


26: Hürrem bint Osman al-Urdani -New Name Change & New Device Change

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

Purpure, a pall inverted raguly between two lotus flowers in profile and a squirrel argent.

Old Item: Layla bint Suleiman al-Urdani, to be released.
Old Item: Purpure, a pall inverted raguly between two lotus flowers in profile and a peacock in his pride argent., to be released.

<Hürrem> was the wife of Suleiman the Magnificent and mother of Sehzade Mehmed, Mihrimah Sultan,Selim II, Sehzade Beyazit and Sehzade Cihangir (https://www.boutiqueottoman.com/who-is-hurrem-sultan-roxelana-hoyam-sultana/); the name is said to mean "laughing one" or "cheerful one" in Turkish.

<Osman> Gazi was the founding sultan of the Ottoman Empire, i.e. Osman I (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osman_I). The name is also found in "Muslim Names from 1455 Istanbul," Ursula Georges (http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/muslimNamesIstanbul.html).


27: Idunn of the Citadel of the Southern Pass -Resub Name & Resub Device

Vert, two bones in saltire within a wingless wyvern in annulo argent.

The client's original name submission, Idunn of the Citadel, was returned because she "used part of the registered branch name Citadel of the Southern Pass as her byname. In order to use the branch name allowance, she must use the entire branch name as registered. Unfortunately, changing the byname to of Citadel of the Southern Pass is a major change, which the submitter does not allow. Therefore, we must return this name."

The CoA continues: "ffride wullfsdotter documented the submitted form of the given name in Lind, s.n. Iðunn, dated to the 14th century. We note that the Viking Age form of this name is Iðunn, which is a 9th or 10th century name from Iceland found in the Landnámabók. The submitter may wish to know that of the Citadel can be constructed as a lingua Anglica form derived from the Middle English setadell or cytadell, dated to 1542 and 1545 in the Middle English Dictionary, respectively. Unfortunately, a 16th century English byname cannot be combined with a Scandinavian given name under Appendix C of SENA. However, Idun is a 16th century English surname found in the FamilySearch Historical Records, so can be used as a given name. Thus, the English form Idun of the Citadel is registerable. We are unable to make this change to register this name because the change in language is also a major change." I will contact the client and see how she wants to proceed.

The client's original device submission, Argent, on a pale sable a bone argent, overall a wingless wyvern passant contourny regardant, its body entwined azure around the bone., was returned "for violating SENA A3E1, which states "Charge groups must be arranged upon the field in a period fashion." This arrangement of an overall charge entwining a tertiary charge is not listed in Appendix J and would need to be documented before it could be accepted." This is a redesign.


28: Isabella Cara -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in July of 2002, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: Ceara inghean Chárthaigh, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a feminine name.

Marchetto <Cara>, c. 1470-1520, was a composer and a court musician for the Gonzaga family (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/marchetto-cara-mn0001178620/biography).


29: James Shinner -New Name & New Device

Vert, a compass rose Or, on a chief argent three oak leaves vert.

No major changes.
Sound most important.

This spelling of the male given name <James> is seen c. 1240 (Withycombe, 3rd edition, pp. 170-2, s.n. James).

Jane <Shinner> has a christening date of 1608 in Rye, Sussex, England, Batch C00086-6 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AShinner~%20%2Bbirth_year% 3A1200-1650~).


30: Joseph Grünewald of York -New Alternate Name

Iosif Syl'vestrov

Submitter desires a masculine name.

The alternate name is Russian. Elements are found in A Dictionary of Period Russian Names, Paul Wickenden of Thanet (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/).

<Iosif> is a masculine given name, the Russianization of Joseph; it is dated to 1541.

Meaning most important.

<Kathryn> is the client's legal given name. It seems to be a reasonable variant on Katheryn, dated to 1570 in "Feminine Given Names in

A Dictionary of English Surnames: Katharine," Talan Gwynek (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Katharine).

<De Feuer> is found in "Flemish Names from Bruges," Luana de Grood, dated 1400-1550 (https://www.s-gabriel.org/docs/bruges/). (Most likely the <de> would be written in lower case.)

Since French and English and compatible languages, I hope that English and Flemish are compatible as well and elements can be combined into a single name. .


33: Kidala Boskov -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

The name is Russian, with both elements from "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names," Paul Wickenden of Thanet, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/.

<Kidala> is a byname, dated to 1618 for craftsman Grishka Kidala; can someone justify this as a given name?

<Boskov> is a patronymic dated to 1498, from the Bos variant Bosko, s.n. Bos.

No changes.

Azure, a bat-winged mermaid erect to sinister between flaunches argent.

<Occadai> is a variant translation of Ogedai; the byname <Dogshin> means "wild."


37: Owain Sayer -New Name & New Device

Per fess dovetailed vert and argent, a mortar and pestle argent and three flames azure.

<Owain> is a masculine name dated c.1100-1171 on p. 77 of Heini Gruffudd's Welsh Names for Children, which is a source to be used with caution: the dates are presumably accurate, but the spellings may not be. This spelling is also found as a surname in R&W s.n. Owen, dated to 1242.

<Sayer> is dated to 1292 for John Sayer in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd Edition, p. 394 s.n. Sayer et al.

<Roland> appears in "Given Names from Brittany, 1384-1600," Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn, with the desired spelling dated 1526 (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/latebreton.html).

<Blaye> (originally Blaye-et-Sainte-Luce) is considered the burial site of the Frankish hero Roland, buried in its basilica (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blaye).

Would this name be considered presumptuous, with the heroic Roland being buried in this place?


40: Runa Gigja -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Per chevron azure and sable, two unicorn's combattant argent and a lit Arabian lamp Or.


41: Ryan Thorne -New Name & New Device

Per bend wavy Or semy of reremice sable, and gules, in dexter base a compass star Or.

<Ryan> is a masculine given name dated to 1595 for Ryan Burre in Saint George, Stamford, Lincoln England, Batch M03168-3, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NX7Y-WBS.

<Thorne> is found dated to 1592 in "Surnames in Durham and Northumberland, 1521-1615," Julie Kahan (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/parish/surnames_tuv.html).

This could be alternately blazoned as Per bend wavy Or and gules, a semy of reremice sable and a compass star Or. The use of a compass star is a SFPP.


42: Swetiue de Torleton' -New Name & New Device

Or, two elephants statant respectant sable sustaining in their raised trunks a heart gules.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for 13th C. England.

<Swetiue> is dated to 1207 in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: Swetiva," Talan Gwynek (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Swetiva). I am unsure of the (g.) following the name; is this the genitive form?

<de Torleton'> is dated to 1207 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 440 s.n. Tarleton, Tarlton.


43: Uilliam ua Briain -New Name & New Device

Quarterly argent and sable, a cross gules between four snakes nowed counterchanged.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

The name is Early Modern Irish Gaelic. <Uilliam> is a given name dating from 1302 to 1577, and <Briain> is the genitive form of Brian, dating from 1258 to 1582 ("Index of Names in Irish Annals: Masculine Given Names," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/).

I believe that the clan affiliation particle ought to be Ó.


44: Yvonnet le Bouer -New Name & New Device

Azure, a lighted candle and a quill pen cross in saltire, on a chief triangular Or a cauldron sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.
