Ii-wy em hotep Emma Laurel, Alys Pelican, and Cormac Wreath. Ankh, udja, seneb. Ii-wy em hotep members of the College of Arms. Ii-wy em hotep all who read these words from Sneferu Golden Pillar and the Artemisian College of Heralds,

These are the items which have passed kingdom scrutiny since Artemisia's latest LoI dated 2017-05-28. In all cases where Golden Pillar was the consulting herald Golden Wing made the decision to send the items up. Please note that this letter contains the first items processed by my wonderful student Apollonia Künster acting as Black Pillar internal submissions Herald. She will officially take over that office at Artemisia's XX Year celebration on the weekend of July 1st.

2: Aonghus ill ulfr - Resub Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in October of 2014, via Artemisia.

Old Item: Aonghus Boithwell, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.

The previous iteration of this name submission Aonghus Vand-gylðir was returned on the March 2016 LoAR with the following language:

The submitter requested authenticity for "Hebridean Norse culture", and requested the connotation of "badly behaved/naughty wolf", but not "evil wolf".

The submitted byname Vand-gylðir is constructed from the elements Vand ("Difficult, troublesome, bad, involving pains and care, ill behaved") and gylðir ("howler, wolf"). The attested example vandræðaskáld ("Troublesome-poet") is derived from vandræði, "difficulty, trouble," rather than directly from vand/vandr. Therefore, this example does not support the construction of the submitted name.

We note that the byname gylðir isn't the normal word for "wolf", as it has more of the sense of "howler." In a compound word, the expected word for "wolf" would be ulfr or vargr. We also have no examples of animal bynames modified in such a manner; the typical formation is animal + body part, such as refskegg ("fox beard"). This name does not fit this pattern. Without evidence that this construction follows an attested pattern, we cannot register this name.

Upon resubmission, we note the bynames illugi ("bad-thought, evil-mind") and ill illi ("bad, evil"), documented in Geirr Bassi by Siren. Double bynames are allowed in Old Norse as long as both bynames could reasonably describe the same person, so a combination of either of these bynames with a wolf byname would be registerable, barring other problems.

Aonghus is grandfathered to the submitter.

In the time since that return, the client has legally changed his name to include the phrase ill ulfr. A copy of his updated birth certificate is in the packet.

Golden Pillar has informed the client that after claiming the legal name allowance period documentation becomes superfluous. Never the less, the client insisted on providing period documentation as well. It is as follows:

Geirr Bassi does show Ulfr as a masculine given name in the Landnamabok and lists several animal bynames.
Nordiskt Runnamnslexikon - Ulfr appears in Old Norse as a byname. (Based on Peterson's unauthorized translation. I understand this can have some issues but it is mostly a solid source.)
English to Old Norse Dictionary - York University (Compiled by Ross. G.Arthur.) Bad - Illr or Ill and Wolf - Ulfr.
Runic bynames involving mental or behavioural characteristics, animals and more than one word or chatacteristic can be found at -
http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/lindorm/runicbynames/mental.htm#start
https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/lindorm/runicbynames/animal.htm#start
http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/lindorm/runicbynames/other.htm#start
Sena Appendix C allows the mixing of Gaidhlig and Scandanavian names.
The submitted byname pattern <animal>+<descriptor> is based on the following names from found in Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók by Aryanhwy merch Catmael:
hauknefr (hawk-nose, hawk-beak)
hesthöfði (horse-head)
hvalmagi (whale-might)
ormstunga (serpent-tongue)
refskegg (fox-beard)


3: Cailleach Dhé bean Tigernaich - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Artemisia LoI of December 26, 2016 as submitted.

Azure, a rabbit rampant maintaining a tambour in its forepaws argent, and a boudure Or semy of compass stars sable

Consulting Herald Sneferu Golden Pillar.

The client recycled the text of the form from her original submission. Thus it indicates this is a new submission, is paired with the name, and that it was submitted in Dec of 2015. Artemisia considers this to be a resub of a Laurel return dated Apr 2017 which stated:

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Because of their small size, commenters had trouble identifying the compass stars on the bordure.

There is a step from period practice for the use of compass stars.

http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/04/17-04lar.html#15

Golden Wing has reviewed this iteration of the device and is sending it up without internal commentary.
