An Tir LoI dated 2017-04-30

Greetings unto the Sovereigns and College of Arms from Rhieinwylydd Lions Blood.

It is the request of the An Tir College of Heralds that the following items be considered for registration. Items originating from Tir Righ are indicated as such. This is another quite lengthy letter and we appreciate your indulgence; our submissions volume will be dropping to a more manageable volume again next month (for which no one, I suspect, is as grateful as I!).

3: Antonio Romeo Maria di Francesco da San Gimignano - New Name & New Device

Per pale argent and counter-ermine, a bordure gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (1450 Tuscany (Italian)) most important.

Tir Righ Submission

The locative was submitted as Giminano, however the documentation submitted as well as that found by commenters supported the spelling "Gimignano" so the name has been changed to match the documentation.

Name construction is triple given name + patronymic + locative. SENA Appendix A states that triple given names are found in very late period Italian names. If this name is not possible, the alternate requested is Antonio Maria di Francisco di Romeo da San Gimignano (double patronymics are allowed in Italian names according to SENA Appendix A).

The submitter documented all the male names (Antonio, Romeo, Francesco) from the online Tratte of Office Holders of Florence database (http://cds.library.brown.edu/projects/tratte) but as commenters felt that '1450' was likely too early for three given names we have provided documentation which also includes the latter half of the 16th century.

In Juliana de Luna's Names from 15th and 16th Century Pisa (http://heraldry.sca.org/kwhss/2014/Juliana_de_Luna/Names_from_15th_and_16th_Century_Pisa.pdf) Antonio is found 859 times between 1458 and 1557. Of those Antonio + another name is found 34 times between 1462 and 1553. Romeo was dated to 1533, and Francesco was found 1227 times between 1457 and 1557. Under masculine given names Agrippa Maria Romolo appeared in 1546. In 1466 there was found Bastiano Maria; Filippo Maria between 1471 and 1476 among others in the 15th and 16th centuries.

San Gimignano is the modern spelling (allowed under the Lingua Anglica allowance) of a walled Tuscan town dating from the 10th century according to UNESCO: Historic Centre of San Gimignano (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/550) and Encyclopedia Britannica (https://www.britannica.com/place/San-Gimignano).

The digital archives of Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore of Florence 1417-1436, shows Latin and Vernacular texts. Vernacular (Florentine) spellings are San Gimingniano April 1425, Santo Gimigniano Nov. 1425, and San Gimingnano July 1427. Their urls respectively are:

4: Arnora Grimsdottir - New Name & New Device

Quarterly per fess indented fleury at the points argent and gules, a bordure azure semy of escallops Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (none defined) most important.

Arnóra: The Viking Answer Lady's Old Norse Women's Names webpage ,

citing GB pp. 7; FJ pp. 342; CV pp. 743 s.v. Þórr,

(http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml) says:

The name Arnóra is found in Eiríks saga rauða, c. late 1100's, for Arnóra the daughter of Einarr of Laugarbrekka. This name also appears in Landnámabók for Arnóra Laugarbrekku-Einarsdóttir in ch. 28; Arnóra, daughter of Þórðr gellir ("yeller, screamer") in ch. 34; Arnóra Lón-Einarsdóttir and Arnóra Gunnbjarnardóttir in ch. 38; and Arnóra, daughter of Þórgeirr inn óði ("the raging") in ch. 65.

Patronymic based on Grímr: The Viking Answer Lady's Old Norse Women's Names (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml), citing GB p. 10 s.n. Grímr; FJ pp. 105-107 s.n. Grímr; CV p. xxxiv s.v. "Pet Names"; CV p. 216 s.v. gríma; NR s.nn. GrímR, Grím-, says:

This name is common in Norway and Iceland through the whole medieval period, and is frequent in Denmark and Sweden.

Submitter has chosen to drop accents throughout the name.

We believe this is clear of Arnóra Gormsdóttir (11/2011) with substantial change to the first syllable of the patronymic (consonant sound G vs Gr, vowel sound O vs I).

5: Aryana Silknfyre - New Acceptance of Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1980, via the West.

(Fieldless) A comet fesswise Or.

I, [modern name redacted], known in the SCA as Aryana Silknfyre, do accept the transfer from [modern name redacted], known in the SCA as Oddr Þialfason, the following badge: "(Fieldless) A comet fesswise Or" as a badge. I understand that this transfer cannot be withdrawn once made.

The letter is signed with Aryana's legal name and dated 2/4/2017.

6: Ástríðr Burlufótr - New Name & New Device

Per chevron inverted sable and azure, a chevron inverted argent between a compass star Or and a griffin maintaining an arrow bendwise sinister inverted argent.

Meaning (byname meaning) most important.

Ástríðr is a feminine given name from Geirr Bassi. Burlufótr is a byname meaning "clumsy-foot,", also from GB. Not sure if it needs to be changed to match the feminine given name.

Original forms printed and mailed were scaled down and too small. Submitter provided new forms which should now be correct size.

SFPP for use of compass star.

7: Birna hin Rauða - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language (Old Norse) most important.
Culture (Old Norse) most important.

Birna is a feminine given name found in Geirr Bassi.

hin Rauða is the feminine form of <hinn Rauði>, a descriptive byname meaning 'the Red,' from The Bynames of the Viking Age Runic Inscriptions by Lindorm Eriksson; https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/lindorm/runicbynames/body.htm#start, originally published in KWHSS Proceedings 1999. Also found in FJ, p. 216.

This was submitted as the masculine <hinn Rauði>; we have updated to match the gender of the byname.

8: Bowen Doyle - New Name & New Device

Per pall inverted gules, sable and argent, two stag's antlers argent and a boar's tusk sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (none defined) most important.

Bowen Vyce married 1556, London, batch M00160-1

9: Brangwayn Steward - New Name & New Device

Per bend argent and azure, a spoon and a cleaver bendwise counterchanged.

Sound most important.

Brangwayn - dated 1300, "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames"

http://www.heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyintro.html

Steward - Henry Steward, 1327, R&W sn Steward

We think this is clear of Brangwain nic Stiubhard, registered 12/1990. Certainly the byname is different in appearance. SENA says names are clear by addition or removal of a syllable other than a preposition; 'nic' being a contraction of nighean mhic (daughter of), it includes but is more than a preposition.


This item was on the 07-2017 LoAR

10: Bryn Mor Raven - New Name & New Device

Argent, a raven striking to sinister sable within a bordure engrailed gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Tir Righ Submission

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Both name elements are from Geirr Bassi. Brynhildr is a feminine given name; Smiðsdóttir is a patronymic based on the masculine given name Smiðr.

12: Chloe of Thera - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2012, via An Tir.

13: Chloe of Thera - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2012, via An Tir.

(Fieldless) A sheaf of three arrows inverted sable, overall a bull's head cabossed argent.

This submission is to be associated with Cretan Archers of Dragon's Laire

The requested association (Cretan Archers of Dragon's Laire) does not appear to be registered, and we don't think it can be considered a generic identifier. However, we're including the information to reflect submitter intent.

14: Cranehaven, College of - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2004, via An Tir.

Per pale sable and gules, a crane argent.

This submission is to be associated with Populace

Submitter blazoned this as a crane in its vigilance; lacking a stone, this crane is not vigilant. Depiction matches their device, which was also simply blazoned "a crane argent."


This item was on the 07-2017 LoAR

15: Dominix Carrillo - New Name & New Device

Per fess sable and vert, a fess embattled between a plate and a tower argent.

Spelling (ending -ix) most important.

Dominix is a feminine given name cited in FamilySearch as the mother of a child baptized 1634, Navarra Spain. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VW6Y-QLM - Batch C87817-1

Carrillo is from Juliana de Luna's Spanish Names from the late 15th century: other surnames at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/isabella/surnames-other.html

Original submitted artwork had a much narrower fess with very shallow traits; this was redrawn in kingdom and submitter approved the redraw. Would probably still benefit from fewer, wider traits, but I believe no more than an AN is needed (if that).

16: Edwina de Herst - New Name & New Device

Azure, a pantheon rampant argent mullety purpure, a dexter gore Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Tir Righ Submission

Edwina - commenters had some question as to whether this spelling is found in period. Edwina is a header form in The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, edition 2016 no.4 (http://dmnes.org/name/Edwina) by S.L. Uckelman which states it is the feminine form of Edwin but only provides a date for "Edwine (gen) 1222".

The attached images from Catalogus regum omnium, quorum sub christiana professione per Europam adhuc regna florent by Achilles Pirmin Gasser dated 1554 (https://books.google.ca/books?id=Z7tRAAAAcAAJ&pg=PP26&dq=edwina&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjgvZLYn7TTAhUi #v=onepage&q=edwina&f=false) and from Chronicon chronicorum politicum by Janus Gruterus dated 1614 (https://books.google.ca/books?id=8wlFAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA805&dq=luduuichus&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjenujhobT #v=onepage&q=eduina&f=false) both include the same information which appears to show "Eduina" dated to 929. We feel that even if this date is not accurate, it shows the name Eduina used for a human woman as of 1554 (which is in the same naming pool and within 500 years of the later dating of the byname).

de Herst - Oxford Dictionary of English Surnames - pg 229 - Thomas de Herst 1066 DB(Sx); also the Online MED sv. hirst(e) (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED20876) has: Petrus de Herst, 1186

18: Fernan Gaspar Santini - New Name & New Device

Per pall argent, sable and azure, a raven sable and two harps reversed Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (de santini) most important.

Fernan - masculine given name with two citations in "Spanish Names from the late 15th C" by Juliana de Luna at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/isabella/MensGivenAlpha.html

Gaspar - masculine given name with four citations, same source as above

"Names in 15th Century Florence and her Dominions: the Condado" by Juliana de Luna gives Santini in the listing of family names with four occurrences and states that it is a marked patronym from Santino (dim Santo). Submitted form was "de Santini" but I don't see support for that in the documentation. Submitter states he would prefer "Santini" to "di Santino," but "de Santini" is his ideal if it can be justified.

Italian/Spanish is an acceptable lingual mix per Appendix C. App A says that double given names are acceptable for "late" Castilian Spanish.

Kingdom commentary noted that the last harp string goes from the soundboard to the forepillar, which is not correct; all the strings should go up to the harmonic curve. However, as it's one string out of four depicted and the instrument overall seems recognizable, I don't believe any more than an AN is warranted.

19: Gaius Clarke - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Gaius - found in Sara Uckelman's (Aryanhwy merch Catmael) Dictionary of Tudor London Names at http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/tudorlondon.pdf sn Gaius: Gaius Farringden Within, 1582.

20: Giovanna De Sollario - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Tir Righ Submission

Giovanna is also found in Feminine Given Names from the Online Catasto of Florence of 1427 by Arval Benicoeur (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/catasto/) with an occurrance of 39 (2.5%). The Academy of Saint Gabriel Report #2468 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2468+0) says "<Giovanna> was common in 15th century Florence" (source is Arval Benicoeur's article).

de Sollario is found in the list of Surnames from a 16th-Century Italian Armorial by by Coblaith Muimnech http://www.coblaith.net/Names/ItSur/SO.html

The submission form had the name entered in all capitals. The client was contacted and has provided explicit permission to change the capitalization to "Giovanna De Sollario" (preferred) or "Giovanna de Sollario" in order that it may be registered.

Previous submission returned November 2015:

Glymm Mere, Barony of. Badge for Order of the Golden Wolf of Glymm Mere. Azure goutty d'eau, a wolf rampant maintaining an axe, a bordure rayonny Or.

This badge is returned for redraw. Per the March 2013 Cover Letter "Teardrop shaped gouttes are registerable as long as they are elongated, more than twice as long as they are wide." On redraw, the submitter should either use the more period form with a wavy tail and/or draw the gouttes longer. The bordure should also be drawn with fewer, thicker rayons.

The initial art for this resub addressed the issue with the gouttes but used the same bordure; the barony was contacted and provided a redraw.

On redraw, the submitter should either use the more period form with a wavy tail and/or draw the gouttes longer. The bordure should also be drawn with fewer, thicker rayons.

The submitter has dropped the gouttes in this submission. The original art for the resub used the same bordure as the returned item; the barony was contacted and provided updated artwork.

27: Ieuan Gower - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2006, via An Tir.

(Fieldless) Three feathers crossed at the tips enfiling a crown Or.

Tir Righ Submission

The submitter is a Duke (An Tir 2014) and thus entitled to use a crown.

Commenters expressed a concern about the similarity to England, Heir Apparent of (registered in December of 1994 via Laurel): (Fieldless) Three ostrich feathers in pile argent enfiling a crown Or the quills surmounting (sometimes piercing, sometimes surmounted by) a scroll argent bearing the words ICH DIEN sable. Important non-SCA badge.

This device is technically clear of conflict by the change of tincture of the feathers and the absence of the scroll, and we felt it is Laurel's decision as to whether this badge is presumptuous.

28: Iona Myst Reginasdaughter - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2016, via An Tir.

Vert, a natural ibex couchant regardant argent.

Some commenters wondered about potential conflict with Hawise le Wollemongere's device: "Vert, a lamb couchant argent and a ford proper" and her badge: "(Fieldless) A lamb couchant argent".

http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2006/01/06-01cl.html does not discuss whether there is a DC between a lamb and a natural ibex; commenters generally agreed that given the prominent horns, they would expect a DC.

Argent, a dragon displayed head to dexter purpure, maintaining with its raised dexter foreleg an open book sable, a bordure engrailed azure.

Shakefork is off perfect vertical by a few degrees, but as it is still obviously palewise I don't think it is an issue.

32: Marco di Bologna - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Marco is a masc given name dated to 15th c. in Fifteenth Century Venetian Masculine Names by Sara L. Uckelman, known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael at http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/venice.html

di Bologna: https://s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/ - Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names by Arval Benicoeur and Talan Gwynek in the table of surnames has "da Bologna" as locative. Submitter would prefer 'di' vs 'da' for locative marker; App A says "Locative bynames in the northern and central areas normally take the form da X, but de X and di X are rarely found."

Marcus is found in Medieval German Given Names from Silesia by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/bahlow_v.htm) which lists "Marcus 7: 1369, 1378, 1392, 1397, c.1400, 1426, 1558-64"

The branch name "Shire of Thornwold" was registered in April 2016.

There are a couple minor differences between the line drawing and the colour emblazon (mainly the masoning, but also the elephant's toenails are missing in the colour version) but we feel these fall well within the allowance granted on http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/08/09-08cl.html, "From Wreath: Artistic Variation in Submitted Emblazons".

36: Octamasades Skuthikos - Resub Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Gules, a lions head erased within an annulet of chain Or.

Device with the same blazon was returned for redraw Dec 2016.

This device is returned for redraw. Please instruct the submitter on the proper way to draw erasing: either three or four prominent, pointed jags on the erasing, as described on the Cover Letter to the November 2001 LoAR:

Therefore, for purposes of recreating period armorial style for erasing, the erasing should (1) have between three and eight jags; (2) have jags that are approximately one-sixth to one-third the total height of the charge being erased; and (3) have jags that are not straight but rather are wavy or curved.

As drawn, the "jags" appear to be details of the mane.

Current emblazon addresses the issues in return.

Submitter was knighted 20 Jul 2002. Name was registered Dec 2016

48: Selene of Three Mountains - New Name & New Badge

Per pale purpure and argent.

Selene (Σελήνη) appears with 8 instances across 3 volumes in the LGPN database online.

The branch name "Three Mountains, Barony of" was registered in Jan 1973. This was submitted as 'et Trioros' which the submitter believes is the Greek translation of "of Three Mountains." No evidence was provided for this formation and we have changed the name to the branch name, which the submitter states she will accept - although she would appreciate any further research the College can offer.

Name was also submitted in all caps; the submitter allows all changes and so we have updated the case.

Per SENA A5F1, field primary armory is substantially different from other FP armory with a substantial change in partition lines, and specifies that "Lines of division not mentioned here explicitly may be determined to be substantially different on a case by case basis."

Consider the submitted armory vs. Per pale indented, the points ending in mullets, purpure and argent [Starulf Haraldsson of Ravenspur: 1991-10 via Atlantia]. While in general per pale would not be an SC from per pale indented, looking at the emblazon for Starulf's device shows it to be quite unique; we're really not sure whether 'per pale indented' is the best description; we might also consider whether the mullets are best considered as primary charges. Given the uncertainty we are forwarding this submission for further commentary.

ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 3386

http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?3386+0

This report was generated in answer to the submitter's query regarding creating a period-appropriate patronym. The attached printout only includes the relevant sections of the report.

The Annals of Connacht notes a woman named <Siban> who died in 1310. We can't be certain how old she was at the time of her death, but it's likely was born in the mid to late 13th C. [1] <Siba/n> represents one Gaelic borrowing of names such as <Joan> or <Jehanne>, which was very popular among the Anglo-Normans. We have evidence that Gaels were adopting some Anglo-Norman names for their daughters during your period, including <Sisuile> (1201-1250) and <Lucia>, <Alis>, <Cristina>, and <Iuliana> (1250-1300). [2] ...

We also wanted to mention that if you are interested in the actual name <Keenan>, this name occurs in the same period as <Siba/n> as <Ciana/n> at least as early as we can support <Siba/n>. [7, 8] The patronymic form of this name would be <ingen Ciana/n>.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2016, via An Tir.

Argent, a beaver couchant reguardant dexter foreleg raised proper and on a bordure vert an orle of chain Or.

Tir Righ Submission

The submitter is a knight of An Tir (Jan 26, 2002) and thus entitled to the orle of chain.

The submitter's previous submission "Argent, a beaver gelding itself proper and on a bordure vert an orle of chain Or" appeared on the An Tir LoI dated 2016-01-31 and was returned by Laurel on the April LoAR:

This device is returned for running afoul of SENA A2C1 which states: "Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a period armorial style.(...) Postures other than defined heraldic postures are not allowed." Although there are period depictions of "a beaver gelding itself" in manuscripts, there is no heraldic depiction of such. From one manuscript to another, beavers don't adopt the same posture to perform this action. Thus, lacking heraldic information, or a consensus in art, we cannot define a standard heraldic posture for self-gelding. Since this posture is not blazonable in usual heraldic terms, we are unable to register it. Additionally, as depicted, the head of the beaver is completely on its body and identifiability is lost, which is also grounds for return.

The question of whether this device was offensive was raised during commentary. We decline to rule on the potential offensiveness at this point. The submitter should be prepared to address this issue, should he resubmit with this motif, with documentation of the posture used.

We feel that this addresses the reason for the original return and that the beaver is identifiable.

Or, a peacock azure between in fess two lightning bolts palewise gules.

Zito Georgii Turko

All elements are found in Wickenden 3rd Ed

Zito sn. Zhito <Zhito Kuzminskii> 1539-40 <Zito> 1427

Georgii sn. Ladom <Georgii Ladomskoi> 1545

Turko sn. Tur Turko 1545

This name can be constructed either as a double given name with an unmarked patronymic or as a single name with a double unmarked patronymic. Double given names, unmarked patronymics and double patronymics are listed as registerable in Russian in Appendix A. Double given names require that one name is Slavic and one Christian in origin. Zito the Slavic and Georgii the Christian in this case.

Ffride added in kingdom:

The spelling "Zito" is in Moroshkin, which is a bit of a dodgy source.

Moroshkin, p. 86 has:

sn. Жито

"Henricus dictus Zito" 1427 (https://archive.org/stream/slavianskimenos00morogoog#page/n198/mode/2up/search/Zito)

The likely source is Bohemian, in Chronicon universitatis Pragensis (Chronicle of the University of Prague) mentioning:

"Henrico dicto Zito" in 1427 (http://archive-cz-2013.com/cz/c/2013-12-25_3410805_12/Chronicon-Universitatis-pragensis/ and if it doesn't load, here's the google cache: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:rHcUt1eeF4wJ:archive-cz-2013.com/cz/c/2013-12-2 5_3410805_12/Chronicon-Universitatis-pragensis/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au)

If the sound is most important, than I see no reason why it shouldn't be wholly in transliterated Russian: Zhito. Especially since it's unclear from the context if this is a nickname, or a "pagan" name.
