The form [given name] + [le] + [descriptive/occupational byname] appears in SENA Appendix A


13: Sile Dhubh inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh -Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Síle Dhubh inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh in April of 2012, via the East.

Sable, an eagle rising, wings displayed and inverted maintaining three annulets interlaced

The original device Per fess wavy gules and sable, a fess wavy between a roundel and an eagle trussing a duck argent was return on the April 2012 LOAR.

This device is returned for violating the ban on so-called "slot-machine heraldry", section VIII.1.a of the Rules for Submissions, for having three types of charges in the same group. Here the eagle and the duck are practically the same size, causing them to be counted as separate charges. A properly drawn eagle trussing a bird would have the eagle as obviously the main charge, with the trussed bird smaller and decidedly less important.

This is a complete redesign.
