Outlands LoI dated 2017-05-31

From the Office of Rampart Herald

THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)

rampart@outlandsheralds.org

Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald send her greetings.

What follows is the May 2017 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor & The NE Calontir Commenting Group, Maridonna Benvenuti, Iago ab Adam, ffride wlffsdotter, Katelin de Irlande, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute to internal commentary on OSCAR.

It is my intent to register this May the following items from the Outlands' College of Heralds.

1: Arturo de Drago - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Spelling most important.

This name uses the pattern given+byname from SENA Appendix A, which requires no further documentation. Both name elements are from the same language group (Italian) and within 500 years of each other.

[Arturo] -- Masculine given name. Report #1898 from the Academy of St. Gabriel mentions that the Arthurian Romances were popular between the 12th and 15th Century, and goes on to mention that <Arturo> was found in Italy in the late Middle Ages -- no specific date is given, and de Felice's Dizionario dei Nomi Italiani is listed as the reference for <Arturo>. Retrieved from: http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?1898+0

[de Drago] -- Family byname found in Bayerische Staats Bibliothek Codices iconographici 268, folio 57r, a mid-16th C Italian armorial indexed by Coblaith Muimnech. The image can be seen directly here: http://daten.digitale-sammlungen.de/0000/bsb00001416/images/index.html?fip=193.174.98.30&id=00001416 &seite=123

Additional Documentation provided by Maridonna Benvenuti

As a literary name Arturo occurs as "il famoso Arturo Rede Brittoni" the famous Britain successor Arthur" in "Osservationi Di Diverse Historie Et D'Altri Particolari Degni Di Memorias" By Antonino Danti, 1573. See image. https://books.google.com/books?id=k6lSAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA124-IA1&dq=Arturo&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwio8azglu rTAhUm2oMKHbOiA90Q6AEILTAB#v=onepage&q=Arturo&f=false

Image: https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=48/2017-05-12/06-39-31_Arturo_literary.jpg

"la Signoria Nicola Drago orator per questa comunità.", Luglio (July) 1499. A translation is Nicola Drago spokesman [of] the Signoria for this community. My pdf copy "I diarii di Marino Sanuto" tomo II, was published in 1849, pdf p. 490. See image. The Signoria was Venice's governing authority.

I downloaded volume two from Googlebooks but it no longer available. The Hathitrust url for this volume of the Diarii is https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=wu.89097747885;view=1up;seq=7

From Hathitrust: "This is an Italian-language diary kept by Marino Sanudo (or Sanuto) in Venice in the late 15th and early 16th century. It was published in 58 volumes between 1879 and 1903, and has been reprinted since then. It is consulted today as a source for Venetian and European history".

2: Corwin Grendel - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (English) most important.

April 2010, Laurel ruled that late 16th and early 17th century English surnames could be used as given names based on a documented pattern of such use in period.

The IGI Parish Records: JOHN CORWIN - Male - Christening 31 May 1579 - Laceby, Lincoln, England (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/SomethingRichandStrange.html)

Archbishop of Canterbury Edmund Grindal 1575 (http://www.oxforddnb.com/index/11/101011644//)

EDMUND GRINDAL (1516x20-1583), archbishop of York and Canterbury. First published 2004; online edn, Jan 2008 (http://dx.doi.org/10/1093/ref:odnb/1144)

Additional Documentation provided by Iago ab Adam & ffride wlffsdotter

Although, there are plenty gray area examples of 'Grendel' in the IGI from the Netherlands (one example below), and according to SENA Appendix C English and Dutch is a compatible mix.

Trijn Grendel - female - Christening 13 Sep 1615 - Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands - batch # C02862-6 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X164-751)

R&W sn. Grindal mentions:

Ædricus Grendel 1180

It's within 500 years of Corwin, and would be keeping the name wholly English?

(R&W gloss the surname as "From Greendale (Devon), Grindale (ERYorks) or residence in a green valley.")

[bint] - 'daughter of' http://www.s-gabriel.orf/3195

[Yahuda] - "Jewish Names in Ottoman Court Records (16thC Jerusalem)" http://MedievalScotland.org/kmo/Jerusalem/MenFreq.shtml


5: Martín de Çúñiga - New Name

[Martín] -- Found 11 times between 1560 and 1574 in 16th Century Spanish Names by Elsbeth Anne Roth. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/spanish/male-given-alpha.html

[de Çúñiga] -- Locative byname. Various spellings can be found throughout the 16th Century, including substituting Z for Ç (such as in the aforementioned article s.n. Ortiz in the list of all bynames sorted alphabetically, where it appears in the name of Alonso Ortiz de Zúñiga. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/spanish/bynames-alpha.html). An example of de Çuñiga can be seen on the title page of Instruction y refugio del anima y conciencia escrupulosa y temerosa de Dios by Diego de Çuñiga, 1552. (https://books.google.com/books?id=Rhs8AAAAcAAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false) Another example appears as de Çuniga in Origen de las Dignidades Seglares de Castilla y Leon by Pedro Salazar de Mendoza (1618) on page 101 in an entry for Diego Lopez de Çuniga. (https://books.google.com/books?id=VoBLMZgz8AYC&pg=RA2-PA101&dq=de+cuniga&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi82KG DhafSAhUS52MKHfV6AHkQ6AEINzAE#v=onepage&q=de%20cuniga&f=false). We feel that the submitted spelling is a reasonable interpolation of the various spellings found.


6: Meave Hale - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

[Meave] -- Found in "Names Found in Anglicized Irish Documents" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (Kathleen M. O'Brien) (2010) as the anglicized form of Meadbh, and dated to 1584. Retrieved from: http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Feminine.shtml

[Hale] -- Joane Hale, f, 21 Jun 1584, Hexton, Hertford, England. Batch #M07245-1. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N286-ZH3

SENA Appendix C allows English and Gaelic names to be mixed within 300 years of each other between 1100-1600.


7: Monique de Monte Aneto - New Name

Sound (~Monique~ is the preferred sound and spelling.) most important.
Spelling (~Monique~ is the preferred sound and spelling.) most important.

[Monique] -- The name of the mother of Saint Augustine, also venerated as a Saint. In late period, she was venerated as Saint Monique in France, as demonstrated in the 1616 printing of Le Chandelier d'Or du Temple de Salomon, available via Google Books: https://books.google.com/books?id=yGl7jbUClk8C&pg=PA303&dq=monique&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiK8fahhejSA hXKrVQKHY2rC08Q6AEILzAD#v=onepage&q=monique&f=false

[de Monte Aneto] -- French locative byname, dated to 1287 in "Names from 13th- and 14th-Century Latin Records from Gascony" by Sara L. Uckelman (2006), retrieved from: http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/earlygasconlatin.html

Both names are from the same regional naming group and within 500 years of each other.

Additional Documentation Contribution provided by Katelin de Irlande

Monique was originally "Monica". Monique is the French form of her name; saint Augustine's mother was venerated in France as saincte Monique by the end of our period. Examples include a 1517 translation of Augustine's works which describes her as saincte Monique, quoted in Francis Higman, Piety and the people: religious printing in French, 1511-1551 (Scolar Press, 1996; on Google Books at http://books.google.com/books?id=fasVAQAAIAAJ ). Volume 4 of the complete works of François de Sales (who lived from 1567 to 1622) mentions saincte Monique in a discussion of the Church Fathers' views on purgatory (p. 143) and in a list of feast days on p. 469. (Oeuvres complètes de Saint François de Sales, évèque et prince de Genève, Houdaille, 1836, http://books.google.com/books?id=RdPUAAAAMAAJ )


8: Shadrick Romani Natalia - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Spelling most important.

Family Search Historical Records: Shadrick Leavens, Male, 15 Jul 1599, Hobeach Lincoln England,C01113-4

Romani: IGI Records in the Grey period with Johne Romani, chr 1606, Berkshire, batch CO17892

Natalia pg. 229 sn. Natalia Wickenden 1459-69

Additional Documentation and thoughts provided by ffride wlffsdotter

Could it be an unmarked matronymic?

SENA Appendix A notes in early modern English matronymics were used, and familysearch does have:

Natalia Bodart, christened 1650, Namur, Belgium. Batch no. C73939-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FV3M-SHF)

As French and English groups are compatible languages (and I'd assume Natalia's parents were Walloon speakers, which'd put it in the French language group), could it work?

If we consider it an English name, it fits the SENA Appendix A pattern for English of given+byname+byname or given+given+byname


9: Surtr leðrháls - New Name

[Surtr] -- Found 7 times in the Landnámabók, per "Viking Names found in Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelman, 2012). Retrieved from: http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html

10: Taiyoyama no Ryota Haruyuki - New Name

No changes.

The name Taiyoyama no Ryota Haruyuki is constructed according to acceptable Japanese forms according to https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/solveig/nanori/ in Saint Gabriel

TAIYOYAMA is the submitted as a family name and uses characters for Sun (Taiyo) and Mountain (-yama) to represent the residential locale of Pikes Peak. Construction of Japanese family names shows it is logical for a nanori or family name in https://www.s-gabriel.org/2019.

"SUN" is a Japanese sigil pronounced TAIYO. It can be found at: Taiyoyama no Ryota Haruyuki https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espvcocRyotac=2&ie=UTF-8#q=english+to+jap anese

The second portion of the family name, "YAMA", appears in http://www.s-gabriel.org/2019

RYOTA is a contraction as shown in http://sengokudaimyo.com/ and from which the Japanese naming information regarding name contractions can be found at http://www.sengokudaimyo.com/miscellany/names.html .

HARUYUKI - The combined name "HARUYUKI" is found under the letter "H" in https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/solveig/nanori/nanorih.html

HARU and YUKI also can be found in NANORI charts compiled by Anthony J. Bryant, a.k.a. SCA: Baron Edward of Effingham, O.Pel, OL, at http://www.sengokudaimyo.com/miscellany/names.html which shows that "HARU" and "YUKI" which can be combined into the name "HARUYUKI".
