Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2017-06-13

Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ194, internal letter of intent. It is the intent of the Garnet office to submit the following elements to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms for registration.

1: Anastasia Sebestyen -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per fess argent and gules, three birds migrant one and two sable and a sun argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (None stated) most important.
Language (Hungarian) most important.
Culture (Hungarian) most important.

Herald of Record: Saiman Tokushou (quiet326@gmail.com)

Client's original submission (Stasha Sebestyen) was returned at kingdom level. Stasha was not found documentable as a given name. It was found as a diminutive of Anastasia.

Anastasia: c.1577 - Hungarian - pulled from Kazmer Miklos by Walraven van Nijmegen (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/magfem2.htm#thelist)

Sebestyen: c.1427 - Hungarian - pulled from Kazmer Miklos, compiled by Kolosvari Arpadne Julia (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/julia/kamarahaszna.html)

Although it appears as though Sebestyen is referenced as a modern spelling and only a header, it was pointed out during kingdom commentary that this spelling was used in period. Full commentary can be found at http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=16&loi=4425 and is summarized here:

Kázmér s.n. Sebestyén starts off the long entry with 1454 Sebestyen, and continues with many 16th century surname cites for this spelling, in both Latin and Hungarian context, so this is a case where the modern spelling "translates" well to period usage.

Herald of Record: Saiman Tokushou (quiet326@gmail.com)

The client's previous submission, Per fess argent and gules, in pale a crow migrant and a demi-sun issuant from the line of division sable, was returned at kingdom for violating core style rules. The black sun on a red field requires an IAP, made virtually impossible by the presence of the crow migrant - an SCA invented orientation. This is a moderate redesign.

Maddalena: Late Period Italian Women's Names: Florence, by Juliana de Luna, Academy of Saint Gabriel (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Florence.shtml)

D'Agostino: Overview of Medieval and Renaissance Italian Names by Signora Giata Magdalena Alberti (http://heraldry.sca.org/kwhss/2013/Giada_Alberti/Overview_of_Medieval_and_Renaissance_Italian_Names. pdf). Considered a reasonable abbreviation of Maddalena figlia d'Agostino.

Herald of Record: Margarita Carpintero (margaritacarpinterosca@gmail.com)

Per Mistholme (Pic Dic), The dove...is often used as a symbol of peace, and thus is sometimes shown with an olive slip in its mouth, as in the arms of the Worshipful Company of Tallow Chandlers, 1456 [Bromley & Child 237]. As this is an affectation of the type of bird, we believe the olive slip depicted here classifies as an artistic detail and need not be considered either for blazon or contrast purposes.
