An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2017-06-05

Greetings unto Black Lion, and the College of Heralds!

I am Caitrina inghean Aindrasia, incoming Lions Blood Herald. Can't tell you how happy I am to be back at it. I've been Lions Blood previously as well as Red Flame Herald (Submissions) of Tir Righ twice and the most important lesson I learned was that commenters make this job so much easier. I look forward to working with you all. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to heraldically serve once more.

Yours in service,

Baroness Caitrina Lions Blood

4: Athanasios Belisarios -New Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in February of 2014, via An Tir.

Old Item: Athanasius of Madrone, to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

The submitter's branch is Madrone.

A previous version of this name was returned in February 2014 with this text, which he provides now as his documentation:

"Athanasius is a Latinized form of of a Greek name, and Tiberius is a Roman praenomen. The third element, Belisario was not supported by the documentation. The Roman form would be Belisarius, and the Greek form Belisarios.

Documentation was not provided to support the submitted pattern of at least three given names. Green Staff was able to document this pattern using examples from Benet Salway, "What's in a Name? A Survey of Roman Onomastic Practice from c. 700 B.C. to A.D. 700" (Journal of Roman Studies, vol. 84, pp. 124-45).

Evidence of Tiberius as anything but a praenomen was not found, however. We would drop this element, and register the name as Athanasius Belisarius, or change the order to Tiberius Athanasius Belisarius, but either would be a major change which the submitter does not allow. Therefore, we are forced to return this name.

His device has been registered under the holding name Athanasius of Madrone."

The submitted spelling, with both names ending in -os, is the preferred one. If that's not possible, the submitter's second choice is <Athanasius Belisarios>. Failing that, he will accept <Athanasius Belisarius>.

Kaðall - "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael <http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html>.

Himmelaúga - Constructed byname "sky/heaven-eye" --

Quoting the August 2016 LoAR sn. Hrafn Isauga.

Submitted as Hrafn Is-augu, the constructed byname Is-augu was intended to mean "ice-eyes". In commentary, ffride wlffsdotter found examples such as hrakauga ("crack-eye"), járnauga ("iron-eye"), and krókauga "hook-eye" in Tilnavne i den islandske oldlitteratur by Finnur Jónsson (http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Tilnavne) and in Lind Personbinamn. However, all of these examples use the singular form "eye". Therefore, we have changed the byname to the singular form Isauga ("ice-eye") to register this name.

Per ffride, himinnauga would be "heaven-eye, sky-eye."

NB - form has submitted name as "Himmelauga" but this is Lion's Blood's error in trying to do too many things at Crown consult. :) Submitter confirms that he is okay with, and in fact prefers, "himinnauga."
