As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

The number of pended items went down this month; however, submissions heralds are strongly urged to review the guidelines at: "http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/#castle_instructions", as items not meeting these guidelines will be pended.

This name follows the pattern of order names [saint] + [other] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/). Examples include:

Saint George with the Pelican and Saint William's Shield

A cup is a common heraldic charge. According to Parker's "A Glossary of Terms Used in Heraldry" - s.n. Cup: "Cup (old fr Coupe): the cup was rather a favourite device from the fourteenth century onwards, as shewn by several references to it in the Rolls of Edward II and Edward III."

It has been established that Order names in the SCA do not need to be named after real saints, but there is a Saint Cecily from Rome, AD230.

NOTE: The name change requested for the surname portion is different from the submitter's personal name by the deletion of the letter `I', and the change in syllables in pronounciation, from three syllables to two syllables - from Duffield to Duffeld. This is a distinct difference in sound and spelling.

Guinevere: From the Norman French form of the Welsh name Gwenhwyfar, derived from the elements gwen meaning "fair, white" and sebara meaning "phantom, magical being". (http://www.behindthename.com/name/guinevere). Although not an entirely Irish name, the Normans invaded Ireland in the 12th century and assimilated their culture with the Irish culture and intermarried with the Irish bringing their names and cultures together. Willing to accept either spelling is more appropriate.

"Guinevere...name is almost certainly a combination of CC: "windo- "white" + sCEbro- "demon, specter, and ghost" making it cognate withe the Irish FIONNABHAIR. 14th C. Var:" (Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names, KM Sheard, pg 260)

"The standard way to form a name using an Irish clan affiliation byname for women is: <single given name> inghean Uí <eponymous clan ancestor's name (in genitive case & always lenited unless starting with a vowel)> which means <given name> daughter of a male descendant <of eponymous clan ancestor>" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname)

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Language (Roman) most important.
Culture (Roman) most important.
Spelling (Roman) most important.

The previous submissions (Oppia Prima Vopiscus and Quarterly sable and argent, two arrows in saltire counterchanged between flaunches purpure) were returned on the September 2016 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2016-08-lop/1609-lor.html) with the following: {The name & the device are returned for rework. For the device, the flaunches are not proper flaunches and the arrows are not properly counterchanged. The name mixes masculine and feminine name elements which is not registerable, and has two cognomen which there is no presedence for. Internal commentors gave a lot of alternative options, using the three nomen, as well as documentation as the original documentation was insufficent and incomplete. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-08/oppia-c.jpg}

General Naming Conventions:

The Academy of St. Gabriel identifies that women used a two-element name (the feminized version of the father's name + a cognomen (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/2206, retrieved on 5/26/17).

Oppia:

Oppia is the feminized version of a man's name, "Oppius," meaning "the daughter of Oppius."

The name "Oppius" can be found on a list of Roman names (webbed at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_nomina#O). This site was retrieved on 2/16/17 and then again on 5/26/17.

Examples of naming a daughter of a male are found here : http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/other/sg-roman.html and http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/roman.html#women (both retrieved on 5/26/17). These two websites are referenced at https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/otherearly.shtml#roman (retrieved on 2/16/17 and then on 5/26/17).

Vopisca:

Using the same naming examples for "Oppius" to "Oppia," one can surmise that "Vopisca" would be the feminine cognomen of the masculine cognomen "Vopiscus." "Vopiscus" can be found here (http://www.forumromanum.org/life/johnston_2.html, retrieved on 5/26/17), as a praenomen that went out of use in very early times, but later used as a cognomen (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vopiscus, retrieved on 5/26/17). Vopiscus was identified on a list of Roman consuls (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vopiscus and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_consuls, both retrieved on 5/26/17).

"The daughter of <Marcus Livius Drusus> was recorded as <Livia Drusilla,> although <Livia Drusa> would have been equally appropriate. Many variations arose during the imperial period, and by the latter centures of the empire, a woman might have been known by her father's nomen and cognomen (<Aemilia Lepida,> daughter of <Lucius Aemilius Lepidus>)…" (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/2206, retrieved on 2/16/17 and then on 5/26/17).
