Notes for returned submission LOAR February 2017

Eleanor d'Arcy. Device. Argent, a bend sinister gules between a feather fesswise and a dragon dormant sable.
This device is returned for multiple conflicts. It conflicts with the device of Wion Neilson: Argent, a bend sinister gules between a lion and a cross potent sable. There is only one DC for changing the types of the charges around the bend sinister.

It also conflicts with the device of Delia Weaver: Argent, a bend sinister gules between a spider inverted and a spiderweb sable. Again, there is only one DC for changing the types of the charges around the bend sinister.

On resubmission, please ensure that the dragon is identifiable. Some commenters had trouble recognizing the charge in the current posture.


12: Ellianna Draconia -New Name & New Device

Quarterly gules and argent, a bend sinister azure and in a bend dragon passant and a closed book argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/roman.html#women

Draconia is a Franco-Latin female form of Draconius found in Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 502 dated from 8th to 10th C.
http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?502+0

As Rocket I have several problems with this submission. First there is no explanation of how we go from Aelia to Ellianna. Second the Academy of Saint Gabriel Report is an early report with known errors. I am not sure this is a reliable source. Lastly there doesn't seem to be a date for the name Ellianna.


13: Elswyth Goodfellow -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Lochac LoI of November 30, 2016 as submitted.

Vert, on an oak tree eradicated, a brown coney couchant proper and a bordure engrailed Or.

Notes from the return of device in LOAR February 2017

Elswyth Goodfellow. Device. Vert, on an oak tree eradicated Or, a brown coney couchant proper.
This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Huette Aliza von und zu Ährens und Mechthildberg: Vert, a tree blasted throughout Or. There is no difference for blasted vs leaved, or eradicated vs not, or for throughout vs not. The only DC is for the addition of the rabbit.


14: Emlyn Fidele -New Name Change

Old Item: Emlyn Sadler, to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.

15: ffride wlffsdotter -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2013, via Lochac.

(Fieldless) a heckle bendwise gules.

This charge appears not to be registered in the SCA. It is attested in Wappenbuch - BSB Cod.icon. 392d, dated to the first half of the 16th century.fol. 273 for "von Hechlingl". (https://bildsuche.digitale-sammlungen.de/index.html?c=viewer&l=de&bandnummer=bsb00018706&pimage=0061 5&v=100&nav=)

And in "Gemeiner loblicher Eydgnoschafft Stetten, Landen vnd Voelckeren Chronick wirdiger thaaten beschreybung" by Johannes Stumpf, p. 202, for the town arms of Hechlingen (modern-day Hägglingen) in Canton Aargau, Switzerland. (https://books.google.com.au/books?redir_esc=y&id=3WldqtQXj44C&q=Hechlingen#v=snippet&q=Hechlingen&f= false)

For comparison, see the modern version of arms: http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=H%C3%A4gglingen

The OED sv. heckle, n., glosses it as "A tool for splitting and combing out flax, hemp, etc" with the earliest citation about 1425. a1425 "Hec mataxa, hekylle."

sv. hackle, n.2, notes that the spelling is "a variant or alteration" of heckle. Hence, it seems this charge would be called a "heckle" instead of a "hackle".


16: Gisla Akselsdatter -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister vert and sable, an oak branch bendwise argent.

No major changes.
Culture (15th Century Danish) most important.

Gisla From the online Diplomatarium Danicum http://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14060922001, http://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14050110001
Gisla, daughter of Hartvig Sested, 22 September 1406, Denmark

Akselsdatter The masculine name Aksel is found in the online Diplomatarium Danicum http://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14010609001
Aksel Jakobsen, 9 June 1401, Lunholm

The SCA Naming Construction and Pattern page at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/patterns.html documents constructed Scandinavian names using the genitive form of the father's name. Saint Gabriel's Academy report number 2723 found at http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2723+0, http://www.panix.com/%7Egabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2723+0 notes that 'the modern spelling <datter> came into use in the 15th century,'making <Akselsdatter> correct for 15th Century Danish. The documentation for Aksel shows this construction in the name Elene Buggesdatter.


17: Gunther Boese -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2013, via Lochac.

Vert, a wolf's jumbe inverted couped argent.

19: Jarnskeggi the Mad -New Alternate Name

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Járnskeggi the Mad in January of 2015, via Lochac.

Amos Ironbeard

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Care most about IronBeard as is.) most important.
Meaning (Care most about IronBeard as is.) most important.

Amos Wickenden 2nd Ed. sn . Amos
Amos, priest. 1393.

Ironbeard is the lingua anglica of jarnskegger constructed from jarn = iron and skegger = beard "Tilnavne i den islandske oldlitteratur" by Finnur Jónsson has:
http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Tilnavne:_Legemet Gives as an example of <Descriptor>+<beard>:
Árni gullskeggr mentioned in the Sturlunga saga and dates to events in the 13th c., means "gold beard".
þorleifr breiðskeggr, not 100% what the source of abbreviation is, but it's dated to 12th c. "broard-beard".
Árni rauðskeggr mentioned in the Sturlunga saga and dates to events in the 12th c., means "red beard" and can show a pattern of "iron" + "body part":
Hjalti járnauga mentioned in the Sturlunga saga and dates to events in the 13th c., means "iron-eye"
Jón Járnbúkr mentioned in the Sturlunga saga and dates to events in the 13th c., means "iron-body".

The names are combined per SENA Apendix C (Russian Scandinavian)


20: Lisebet Skinkel van Egeskow -New Name & New Device

Erminois, on a bend vert, three oak trees palewise Or.

No major changes.

The submitter is aware that this name may be considered presumptuous, but submits that the Skinkel van Egeskow family is not significant enough for its name to be protected by the SCA.

Lisebetis a dutch female name dated between 1358 and 1361, listed in "Dutch Names 1358-1361" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelman)

Ludeke Skinkel van Egeskow, 10 January 1405, Funen County Council


21: Louisa Lyppard Cattone du Lac -New Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in June of 1991, via the West.

Per pale argent and sable, two unicorn's heads couped respectant counterchanged, on a point pointed barry wavy gules and Or.

Old Item: Louisa Lyppard de Cattone, to be released.
Old Item: Per pale argent and sable, two unicorn's heads couped respectant counterchanged, on a point pointed gules a flame proper., to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

Louisa Lyppard Cattone du Lac as a French-English name:
Louisa Emily Withers christened 1563, English Batch no. C13669-5
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NKGT-8Q7

James Lyppard daughter christened 1594, England Batch No. C07100-1
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/J73K-2XX

Annas Cattone married 1590, England Batch No. M10546-3
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NVXS-CX4

In this case Louisa and Lyppard would be considered double given names, as there was a pattern in late period English to use surnames as personal names. As per the september 2012 LOAR cover letter http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5

du Lac apears in:
"History de L'Eglise, diocèse, vile et université d'Oriéans" 1647 https://books.google.fr/books?id=szqLl_oQl_0C&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false p.335 where Lancelot du Lac a govenor of Orleans is mentioned in 1504.

Ideally I would prefer Louisa Lyppard Cattone du Lac if that is possible but understand if this is not linguistically possible.


22: Louisa Lyppard Cattone du Lac -New Badge

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

Gules ermined Or, a fess wavy azure fimbriated Or, overall a natural leopard rampant tail nowed Or spotted sable armed and langued argent.


23: Southron Gaard, Barony of -New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1999, via Caid.

Hamlet of Gildenwick

No changes.

Hamlet The desired designator for this household is "Hamlet."
OED sn. hamlet defines it as: "A group of houses or small village in the country" hence, it is a smaller group of people than a canton, shire or barony, and could be considered a valid designator.

Gildenwick The Historical Gazetteer of England's Place Names, sn. Goldenwick
Goldenwick 1614, 1649
http://placenames.org.uk/browse/mads/epns-deep-04-c-mappedname-000271 (Goldenwick.jpg)

The element "Golden" also appears as "Gilden" in placenames mentioned in the Middle English Dictionary, sv. gilden
http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=66001457&egdisplay=open&egs=66019714
De la Gildenetune, 1278 Alicia Gildenwater, 1294, as an unmarked locative byname.
Gildenhaleford ca. 1300

The Historical Gazetteer of England's Place Names, lists sn. Gildenock
Gildenock 1620
http://placenames.org.uk/index.php/browse/mads/epns-deep-59-c-mappedname-000517 (Gildenock.jpg)

Hence it is plausible that Goldenwick could have been recorded as Gildenwick.

Hamlet of Gildenwick The name construction <Hamlet of *Name*> is documented in the "Early English Books Online database"
http://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo?c=eebo;c=eebo2;g=eebogroup;page=home;xc=1:

"The firste [laste] volume of the chronicles of England, Scotlande, and Irelande" by Raphael Holinshed, 1577: "... his Manour of Ferneham, with the hamlet of Cere ..." (HamletOfCere.jpg)
