Greetings unto Konrad Dragon, Sybella Rouge Scarpe, and the commenting Heralds of the Middle Kingdom.

Enclosed are the compiled submissions for the month of April 2017. Commentary is due June 8, 2017.

Many thanks to Calybrid Ine Tere, outgoing Escutcheon, for her tutelage and ongoing support as I attempt to fill her effortlessly capable shoes.

Ginevra Boscoli

This is a resubmission of a badge originally submitted in September 2016, but a conflict was found at Laurel:

"This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Styrkárr Bjarnarson: Or, a yale rampant guardant vert bezanty armed gules. There is one DC for the difference between fielded and fieldless design but no other DC. There is no DC for the orientation of the creature's head, no DC for the addition of the flames and no DC for changing the tincture of the spots, which are not tertiary charges."

A letter of Permission to Conflict is included.

7: Fatima bint Malik -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language most important.
Culture (1450s Ottoman Empire) most important.

Submitter built this name using documents from the SCA heraldry resources. Additionally, submitter originally encountered the name "Fatima" in the book, "Topkapi Textiles," edited by J.M. Rogers and published 1986 (originally called "Topkapi Saray Muzesi" by Hulye Tezcan and Selma Delibas, 1980), as the name of a daughter of Sultan Mufasa III. Although she lived at a time later than our period, further research indicates this was a common name throughout history and continues to be to this day.


8: Godhit of Cynnabar -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Anglo-Saxon ("Old English")) most important.
Culture (11-12th century England) most important.

The Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England (PASE) database reports that the name 'Godgyth' was variously spelled as Goded, Godhit, Godid in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Godhit is an English name found in the 1086 Domesday Book: K. S. B. Keats-Rohan, David E. Thornton, Domesday Names, Boydell and Brewer, 1997, p. 91

11: Raja Culamani of Chennai -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language most important.
Culture (Given name that is Tamil) most important.

The feminine given name Rāja_Cūḻamani is found in Irayari Vairavi's "Female Chola Names" (https://sites.google.com/site/vairavisca/Home/creations/indian-name-research). It's under the tab Thanjavur 2, dated to 1014. We believe it should be registerable in the simplified form without diacritical remarks [sic] as well.

The byname "of Chennai" is the lingua Angelica [sic] form of a period byname that at worst might have been used by Europeans for a woman from this area. While the modern city name is colonial, Wikipedia (s.n. Chennai) observes that "During the 1st century CE, a poet and weaver named Thiruvalluvar lived in the town of Mylapore (a neighborhood of present Chennai). We believe that the modern city is the correct lingua Angelica [sic] form for this area.



OSCAR counts 4 Names, 1 Device and 6 Badges. There are a total of 11 items submitted on this letter.
