1: Amphelise de Wodeham -New Badge

(Fieldless) On a linden leaf argent a wren azure.


2: Antony Heillirsson -New Name & New Device

Gules, in pale three feathers fesswise and an orle argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

Antony is a male given name that is based on Roman <Antonius> (http://dmnes.org/name/Anthony).

Heillirsson is a patronymic byname. According to the submitter, in Old Norse it means approximately "(the one that will) be fortunate"; the father's name is <Heillir>, the <-ir> serves as to empathize [sic] the name, and the son is his luck: "the son of the one who will be fortunate".

good luck - heill in English-Old Norse Dictionary compiled by Ross G. Arthur (http://www.yorku.ca/inpar/language/English-Old_Norse.pdf)

The submitter provides a story to explain the cultural context for the name elements.

Heillir served the Byzantine emperor (as a Varangian guard / väring) in Constantinople (or as Heillir would say Miklagård) some years in the late 960's. In Constantinople Heillir befriended a woman of Roman Descent, Drusa. She worked in a columbidae store and became pregnant by Heillir sometime during the summer of -69 (969 that is). Heillir had a plan to take Drusa back to Scandinavia, his home. However, tragically she died in childbirth. Drusa had told Heillir how she had been taken from Rome (while her mother was not paying attention due to having an affair) and had been sold to a man from Constantinople. Drusa came from the old family of Antonii. Her father and brother held the name Antonius*.

*) "The nomen or nomen gentilicium was the family or clan name. (Nomen means "name".) It plays the role of a modern surname: a Roman citizen inherited his nomen from his father's family. Many nomina end in -ius." (A Simple Guide to Imperial Roman Names by Ursula Georges, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#nomen)

Heillir started to question his own name given to him by his mother. When would he be fortunate? The answer, he thought, lied in the boy. Heillir brought the boy home to his mother Åsa and named him Antonius after Drusa's father. This name later changed to Antony after his many travels west and south

3: Eleanor de Mundona -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Eleanor is a female given name dated to 1361 in Reaney & Wilson, referenced in Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames by Talan Gwynek. <Eleanor> is also the submitter's legal name.

de Mundona is a byname dated to 1119 in Reaney & Wilson, page 317 s.n. Munden.


4: Elzebeth Múnserin -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Drachenwald LoI of October 31, 2016 as submitted.

Per pale Or and azure a hedgehog counterchanged.

The submission was in Drachenwald LoI 2016-12-31 (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=71543) and was returned in LoAR 03-2017 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/03/17-03lar.html#123):

Elzebeth Múnserin. Device. Azure, a hedgehog Or its quills impaling grapes purpure.

This lovely device is returned for conflict with the badge of Xena Baxter Wynthorpe: Vert, a hedgehog statant Or. There is only one DC for changing the field. The grapes here are considered equivalent to fructing, not held charges. Since they do not represent half of the charge, they cannot add a DC for tincture difference.

This resubmission is a complete redesign.


5: Ingimóð Lofríksdóttir -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2015, via Drachenwald.

Azure, a lynx head couped Or, in chief three saltorels and on a base argent a saltorel azure.


6: Isabel Northwode -Resub Device

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

Sable, a gryphon wings displayed Or maintaining a candle argent within a double tressure Or.

The blazon has been changed from the proposed Sable, a gryphon Or maintaining a candle argent within a double tressure Or.

The submission was in Drachenwald LoI 2016-11-30 (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=70882) and was returned in LoAR 02-2017 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/02/17-02lar.html#84):

Isabel Northwode. Device. Sable, a gryphon wings displayed maintaining a lit candle within a double tressure Or.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2, which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Because held charges count for conflict checking purposes, they must be identifiable. Because of its small size and the fact that it is of the same tincture as the gryphon, the candle disappears in the details of the paw.

The submission is a redraw. The candle has been drawn larger and its tincture has been changed to argent.


7: Isabetta del Verde -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2012, via Drachenwald.

Society of the Golden Egg

Society of the. The November 2016 registration of the household name Company of the Anvil and Rose to Clare Lowemanns indicates that "Society of the" and "Company of the" are equivalent designators and both can be used by households (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/11/16-11lar.html#5):

"Submitted as Anvil and Rose Company, no documentation was provided (and none was found in commentary) for the pattern X and Y Company. However, we do have evidence of the pattern Society of X and Y from 15th century Germany, such as the Society of the Falcon and Fish, the honorable Society of the Scenthounds and Wreaths and the Society of the Unicorn and the Maiden. As the submitter permitted all changes, we have changed this household name to Company of the Anvil and Rose to follow this documented pattern."

The pattern of Company of [color] [heraldic charge] is evidenced on the 12-2012 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/12/12-12lar.html#31):

Summits, Principality of the. Household name Company of the White Gryphon.

"Submitted as Vanguard of the White Gryphon, no evidence was presented that vanguards had names. This name is suitable for use with the designator company (see for example the period order Companie du Cigne Noir or lordre de la Compaignie du Cine)."

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2a, for having "slot machine" armory, more than two types of charge in the same group. Precedent states:

This device violates our ban on so-called 'slot machine' armory. There are three types of charge in the secondary charge group: annulets, triquetras, and a phoenix. Unless the submitter can provide evidence that the annulet interlaced with a triquetra is a period heraldic motif considered to be a single charge, we will continue to interpret an triquetra and interlaced with an annulet as two charges. [Catherine Wentworth of Cambridge, R-Outlands, August 2008 LoAR]

We have a similar situation here, with three types of charge in the primary charge group: a bee, an annulet and the letter M

The resubmission has been redesigned so that the bee is the primary charge and the annulet and the letter are secondary charges.
