Calontir ILoI dated 2017-02-28

¡Buenas!

To Saito Takauji, Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Shandra, Saker. We seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration:

To the Heralds of the Kingdom: As announced in the February Saker Online Commentary and Decision Meeting, there will be some changes to the Saker Office in the upcoming months. As of May 1st, I (Shandra) will be ending my tenure as Saker, and the Submissions Herald position in Calontir will be divided into two offices.

The Position of Saker Herald will be filled by Herr Gotfried von Schwaben, Saker Emeritus, and he will work with External Submissions. Mistress Dorcas Whitecap will be filling the now-elevated role of Eyas Herald, and will work with the Internal Submissions portion of the process. My most humble thanks to both of them, and I cannot wait to see how these changes will improve the submissions process in Calontir even further than before!

4: Demetör Zsigmond -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (Hungarian 1560) most important.

Zsigmond - masculine name dated 1560 found in Hungarian Personal Names of the 16th Century by Walraven van Nijmegen http://heraldry.sca.org/names/hungarian/index.html

Demetör - masculine name dated 1560, found in Hungarian Personal Names of the 16th Century by Walraven van Nijmegen http://heraldry.sca.org/names/hungarian/index.html

Note from the article:

Names in both sources have the basic form of: [surname] + [given name] Both elements are usually a single word,[...]. In many cases, a surname is identical or very similar to a given name elsewhere in the list and presumably is being used as a patronymic.


5: Diana Tantini -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2006, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) An apple purpure slipped and leafed proper, pierced by a needle threaded argent.


6: Dorcas Whitecap -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1992, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A barnacle goose tree Or, leaved and fructed within and conjoined to an annulet gules

We believe the addition of the annulet gules clears the conflict listed on the return below from 11-2016:

Badge. (Fieldless) A barnacle goose tree Or, leaved and fructed gules.

As fructing of trees does not count for difference, this badge is returned for multiple conflicts.

It conflicts with the badge of the Middle, Kingdom, Purpure, a weeping willow tree eradicated Or; the device of Brianne Hyla, Per chevron Or and vert, in base a maple tree couped Or; the badge of Huette Aliza von und zu Ährens und Mechthildberg, Vert, a tree blasted throughout Or; and presumes upon the arms of the Dukes of Urbino Della Rovere, Azure, an oak tree eradicated its four branches knotted in saltire Or. In each case there is only one DC for the difference between fielded and fieldless design.
