An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2017-05-18

Greetings to Black Lion, Lions Blood, and the College of Heralds! Please find below our submissions for this month!

1: Æsa Ormr-í-auga -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Argent, a triskelion of dragon's heads vert within a bordure rayonny purpure

The submitter's branch is Vulkanfeldt.

A previous submission was returned at kingdom level in September 2016:

"This conflicts with the badge of Sarkanyi Gero, registered 1973: (Fieldless) A triskelion of dragon's heads Or, langued gules. There is only one DC for a fielded vs. fieldless design; the tongue color is a minor artistic detail and does not count for difference. Upon resubmission, we encourage the submitter to use a Crayola or similar marker for her emblazon; although the submitter labeled her drawing as using purpure (purple), the color tended towards bluish on the form."


2: Aliénor Ysabiau Debois -New Name & New Device

Or, a seme of crosses fluery and on a cheif enbattled azure three crosses fluery or, a swan naiant regardant argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.
Language (14th century French) most important.

The submitter's branch is Wyewood. Although this submission is for a new primary name, she lists her society name as <Linara Virmindahl>, which is not registered.

<Alienor> (without accent) is dated to 1302 in "Breton Names from the Late 13th Century" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael.

<Ysabiau> is found in "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris" by Colm Dubh.

<Dubos> and <du Bois> are found in "Names from Lallaing 1384-1600" by Domhnall na Moicheirghe.

The submitter has supplied a secondary blazon for this device: "A white swan on a blue background with golden crosses. An embattled Border at top that is yellow with three blue crosses upon it."

Attached, "Arms of the Kingdom of Galicia 1560," a period example of small crosses strewn about a larger central charge.

26: Shazade Nisaburi the artist -Resub Name & Resub Device

Sable, a bengal tiger rampant contourny Or marked sable and an orle Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Culture (Persian/Sassanian) most important.

The submitter's branch is Wealdsmere.

A previous submission, Shazade Nisaburi, was returned at the Laurel level in November 2014. The text of that return is as follows:

'Shazade means "child of the Shah" and is protected as an alternate Turkish title for prince/princess. Under PN4B1 of SENA, a given name that is identical to a title or form of address may be registered if it is clear that the name as a whole is not making a claim to rank. For example, Regina the Laundress is allowed, but Regina of England is not. In the present submission, the byname is an adjective meaning "person from Nishapur". In 2005, Laurel ruled:

Submitted as Annaka Regina Poznanska, the submitter requested an authentic Polish name and accepted all changes. As submitted, the name is a claim to be queen of Poznanska. Nebuly notes, "The submitted name means "Anna, queen of Poznan", a violation of RfS VI.1. It does not matter whether the locative is constructed using the preposition z or the adjectival ending -ska; there will still be an issue of presumption when the element Regina (Latin for "queen") is placed in front of the locative." We have dropped the middle element and registered the name as Annaka Poznanska. [Annaka Poznanska, May 2005, A-An Tir]

This decision overturned without further comment prior precedent stating that ethnic adjectival bynames such as Nisaburi are not the same as locative bynames using the form of [place name]:

Regardless of whether or not any of the kings of Poland named Wladyslaw were known as Wladyslaw z Poznania, they would not conflict with a submitted name of Wladyslaw Poznañski because Poznañski is a descriptive byname referring to a person's ethnicity, not a locative byname. This issue, upheld as recently as November 2001 (Eiríkr inn danski, Atlantia-A), has been addressed in these rulings:

[<name> Lietuvos, meaning <name> the Lithuanian] While prior Laurel precedent has returned the form '{Name} the {Nationality}', we do not find this presumptuous of the ruler of the country in the same way or to the same degree that, say, '{Name} of {Nation}' would. Hence, we do not find that this name conflicts with <name>, King of Lithuania. (LoAR 12/91 p.12).

<Given Name> the Breton should no more conflict with <same Given Name>, Duke of Brittany, than Richard the Englishman would with Richard, King of England. [Note that this overturns a precedent of Master Baldwin's regarding Wladislaw Poleski] (LoAR 10/90 p.2).

The submitter's previously submitted name Wladyslaus Polonus was returned by Laurel in July 2000 for conflict with various kings of Poland of that name. Polonus is a Latin byname which could be translated as either 'the Pole' or 'of Poland'. As one of the translations has the form [monarch's given name] of [area the monarch ruled], it was a conflict with the kings of Poland named Wladyslaw. As of the October 1990 ruling cited above, the Polish form Poleski 'the Pole' would not conflict with these kings. [Wladyslaw Poznañski, 03/2002, A-Æthelmearc]

We are hereby upholding the current precedent from 2005 and ruling that the two types of locative bynames should be treated the same way. Under this precedent, Shazade Nisaburi creates the appearance of a claim to be princess of Nishapur. Thus, this name must be returned under PN4B1 of SENA."

The documentation with this submission is as follows:

Shahzade (well Şâhzâde - Şāzāde, of which this is a simplified transliteration) is found in an unpublished article by Ursula Georges "Feminine Ottoman Names from 1546." Attaching scans from said document. The name, while documented from Turkish context, is Persian in origin.

Locative bynames used in medieval Persian are not marked for gender; see Aryanhwy verch Catmael and Ursula Georges "Persian Feminine Names from the Safavid Period" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ursula/persian.html) for documentation of that fact.

"Shâhzâda" is also listed on https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ursula/persian.html adding menial occupation "the artist" to not create the appearance of a claim of royalty

Correction to Name (2017-May-17 18:05:36): The submitter requests that her name be changed, if necessary, for authenticity of language and/or culture.

The submitter indicates that this device is a resubmission at the kingdom level, but Boar can't seem to find record of it.

27: Sværri Bjornhjarta Tjorkilsson -New Name & New Device

Per chevron throughout argent and gules, two ravens striking combattant sable and a stag rampant countourney argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

The submitter's branch is Adiantum.

* Sværri is a given name found in Geirr Bassi. The submitter would prefer Sverre if an appropriate source can be found.

* Bjornhjarta is a constructed descriptive byname meaning "bear-heart." This follows a pattern of Norse names formed of an animal type and a body part or attribute -- some literal, some figurative. Here are a few examples from "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael: dove-nose, bear-warmth, foal-forehead, hawk-nose, horse-head, whale-might, whale-calmness, crow-nose, fish-back, serpent-tongue, fox-beard, and ox-might <http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html>.

The meaning of "bjorn" is given in GB p. 5. The definition of "hjarta" as "heart" is found in a dictionary of Old Norse hosted by The University of Texas at Austin Linguistics Research Center <https://lrc.la.utexas.edu/eieol_base_form_dictionary/norol/18>.

* Tjorkilsson is a patronymic byname formed using rules given on GB p. 17, from the name Tjorkill. This name itself is a protheme-deuterotheme construction using elements from other names, including Tjǫrvi (p. 15) and Hækill (p. 12).

The general pattern of given name + descriptive byname + patronymic is included under Scandanavian names in Appendix A of SENA. The submitter would prefer to use both bynames, but if either is found unregisterable, he will accept just one.


28: Þora Þorkelsdottir -New Name & New Device

Gyronny arrondi azure and argent a domestic cat dormant Or and in chief 3 cinqfoils counterchanged argent and sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The submitter's branch is Akornebir.

29: Tyr Gullinson -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Azure, three boars rampant argent

The submitter's branch is Aquaterra.

A previous version of this device, "Azure, a chevron between three boars contourny argent," was returned at the kingdom level in September 2016. The text of the return states:

"This submission conflicts with the device of Angela of the Stoney Forest: Azure, a chevron between two oak leaves and an acorn argent (registered June 1984 via the Middle). There is only one DC for the change of type of secondaries. Additionally, the shield shape on the form has been altered, which has long been grounds for return at Laurel. Upon resubmission, the submitter should be sure not to change the outline of the shield shape as drawn on the submission form."


30: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Award of Dragon's Flame

Dragon is documented as an English surname in Reaney and Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames s.n. Dragon, with Walter Dragon in 1221. Dragon is a late-period English byname found in the Family Search records: John Dragon married 1597, Wiltshire, England. Batch no. 00190-7. The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry says that flames are found in period arms like the 15th century arms of de la Fiama and the arms of Wells.


31: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Award of Poisson d'Or

Poisson is the French word for fish. Or is the French word for gold. The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry says that fish are a period charge - for example fish fretted in triangle as found in Guillim.


32: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Award of the Alerion

The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry says that the alerion is a variant of an eagle recognized as such by the end of our period, citing de Bara. Thus it follows the pattern of awards created from a charge.


33: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Award of the Guilded Quill

The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry says that the quill of yarn is dated as a charge to 1558. Thus it follows the pattern of awards created from a charge. Gilded is allowed as a variant of or/gold. Thus it follows tincture and charge.


34: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Order of Ember

Ember is a late-period English byname found in the FamilySearch records: Mary Ember was buried 13 Nov 1594 in England. Batch no. B03579-4


35: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Order of the Argent Owl

The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry says that owl is a period charge dating to c. 1295 in the arms of Seyville. Argent is a tincture so follows pattern.


36: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2008, via An Tir.

Order of the Eagle of the Ascension

The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry says that the eagle is a period charge dated to c. 1244. In 1501, the Portuguese navigator Afonso de Albuqurque sighted the island on Ascension Day (which fell on 21 May that year) and named it Ilha da Ascensão (Ascension Island) after this feast day. We believe that 'Ascension' or 'the Ascension' is a plausible name for a place discovered on - or dedicated to - that festival day


37: Vulcanfeldt, Barony of -New Order Name
