East LoI dated 2017-06-30

Unto Andrewe Laurel, Alys Pellicane, and Cormac Wreath, from Yehuda Blue Tyger, greetings!

It is the intent of the College of Heralds of the East Kingdom to register the following items. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

1: Chiara Foscari - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Culture (15th Century Venice) most important.

Chiara is a female given name found in Juliana de Luna, "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Venice", http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Venice.shtml#FeminineGivenNames15th16thC accessed 5, Feb 217.

Foscari is a family name found in the same source under Family Names. http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Venice.shtml#FamilyNames


2: Cristina Volpina - New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2015, via the East.

House of the Golden Schelle

(Fieldless) an escallop bendwise Or

No changes.

This is a household name based on the inn-sign model.

Color + Object/Beast is a pattern found in English inn sign names from "Comparison of Inn/Shop/House names found in London 1473-1600 with those found in the ten shires surrounding London in 1636" by Margaret Makafee.

schelle is found in this spelling in the Middle English Dictionary (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED39845) for example:

(a1393) Gower CA (Frf 3) 7.725: Every fissh which hath a schelle Mot in his governance duelle.

golden is found in this spelling in the Middle English Dictionary (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED19037&egs=all&egdisplay=open) for example:

(a1398) * Trev. Barth.(Add 27944) 198b/a: Þe colour þerof is demed golden by day and fyry by night.

A shell is a heraldic charge (http://mistholme.com/?s=shell)


3: Damian Ísólfsson - New Name & New Device

Vert, a wolf rampant and two crosses of St. Brigid in chief argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Silver Wolf or Ice Wolf) most important.

When submitted, this name was documented as a Russian given name from 1148 and Norse byname from 668, placing the elements more than 300 years apart.

Fortunately, during kingdom commentary, ffride wlffsdotter provided the following additional documentation:

Damian is a Swiss given name from 1550 found in FamilySearch records:

Damian Irmy, male, christened 1550, Basel, Switzerland. Batch no. C73993-8 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FV82-HQB)

It is likely that this name is German, because his father is called Nikolaus, and because the name also shows up further north:

Damian Weidenman, male, married 1569, Wuerttemberg, Germany. Batch no. M95430-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JH6W-H7M)

Ísólfsson is a patronymic byname from the given name Ísólfs found in Lind col. 659 sn. Ísólfr: Ǫgmundr Ísólfs s.[on], circa 1254

German and Norse names can be combined according to SENA Appendix C, and 1254 and 1550 are less than 300 years apart.

While changing a language is normally a major change, in this case the name did not actually change.

If the Swiss citation of the given name is not considered to be German, and thus cannot be combined with a Norse byname, the following entries are also found in Lind in the same section:

Ísolfr Simonsson, Diplomatarium Islandicum, 1444

Isolfur Palson, Diplomatarium Islandicum ca. 1495-1502.

This would allow the registration of Damian Ísolfsson or Damian Isolfsson in combination with the 1569 citation of the given name.


4: Damian Ísólfsson - New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

(Fieldless) On a wolf's paw print vert, the rune Dagaz argent

There is an SFPP for the use of a pawprint.


5: Dionise O Towie - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2015, via the East.

Azure, on a pale purpure fimbraited argent, a cat sejant guardant Or


6: Eudes de Creully - New Blazon Change

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Purpure, a bend sinister ermine, overall a falcon Or

This device was registered on the December 2016 LoAR (East) as Purpure, a bend sinister ermine, overall a falcon hooded Or. The submitter did not realize the falcon was hooded - she prefers that it not be. As being hooded is not worth a DC, we are hereby requesting that this device be reblazoned dropping the term "hooded".

The original emblazon included both an eye and a tuft. Which are contradictory. The LOAR stated "Please let the submitter know that if a falcon is hooded, you cannot see its eyes, but without the hood there would be no tuft on the top of its head." The decision could easily have been the tuft was erroneous, as opposed to the eye. Hence the request for a reblazon.


7: Eudes de Creully and Eyda von Rothenburg - New Blazon Change

OSCAR finds the name (Eudes de Creully) on the East LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.
OSCAR finds the name (Eyda von Rothenburg) on the East LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

(Fieldless) On a cup Or a falcon's head erased gules.

This device was registered on the December 2016 LoAR (East) as (Fieldless) On a cup Or a hooded falcon's head erased gules.. The submitter did not realize the falcon's head was hooded - she prefers that it not be. As being hooded is not worth a DC, we are hereby requesting that the badge be reblazoned dropping the term "hooded".

The original emblazon included both an eye and a tuft. Which are contradictory. The LOAR stated "Please let the submitter know that if a falcon is hooded, you cannot see its eyes, but without the hood there would be no tuft on the top of its head." The decision could easily have been the tuft was erroneous, as opposed to the eye. Hence the request for a reblazon.


8: Guillermo Solario - New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and gules, a sun in his splendour argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.

Guillermo is a male given name dated to 1327 found in Academy of St. GAbriel Report #2912 by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2912+0)

Solario is a byname found in "Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names" by Arval Benicoeur (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14sur.html#table)

Per SENA Appendix C, Iberian and Italian names can be combined.

Submitter has permission to conflict with the armory of Cosmo Solario, per the attached.


9: Marcus Marius Felix - New Name & New Device

Vert, two lynx sejant addorsed argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Marcus - praenomen - From "http://inslib.kcl.ac.uk/irt2009/indices/attested/praenomen/attested_praenomen-latM.html Marcus Annius Messal[···] 516.a.1

Marius - gentilicium - From http://inslib.kcl.ac.uk/irt2009/indices/attested/gentilicium/attested_gentilicium-latM.html

Marius Caius Marius Pudens Boccius Zurgem 729.3

Felix - cognomen - From http://inslib.kcl.ac.uk/irt2009/indices/attested/cognomen/attested_cognomen-latF.html

Felix [A]ntoni[us ···] [··· F]elix [665.2]

As originally submitted, this device had a thing white "border" around the edge of the field, an artifact of the process of inserting the emblazon into the form. Submitter confirmed that no bordure was desired and Blue Tyger fixed the image. Submitter has approved the corrected image submitted here.


10: Mari Clock van Hoorne - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2013, via the East.

(Fieldless) A domestic cat rampant contourny sable


11: Roland le Taillefer - New Name & New Device

Argent, an axe-head azure

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling most important.

Roland is a male given name found in "Given Names from Brittany, 1384-1600" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/latebreton.html)

Taillefer is a byname found in "Bynames in Medieval France" by Sara L. Uckelman (www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/frenchbynames.pdf)

The form [given name] + [le] + [descriptive/occupational byname] appears in SENA Appendix A


12: Sile Dhubh inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh - Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Síle Dhubh inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh in April of 2012, via the East.

Sable, an eagle rising, wings displayed and inverted maintaining three annulets interlaced

The original device Per fess wavy gules and sable, a fess wavy between a roundel and an eagle trussing a duck argent was return on the April 2012 LOAR.

This device is returned for violating the ban on so-called "slot-machine heraldry", section VIII.1.a of the Rules for Submissions, for having three types of charges in the same group. Here the eagle and the duck are practically the same size, causing them to be counted as separate charges. A properly drawn eagle trussing a bird would have the eagle as obviously the main charge, with the trussed bird smaller and decidedly less important.

This is a complete redesign.


13: Sofya Gianetta di Trieste - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2016, via the East.

Or, a fleur-de-lys and on a chief gules two mullets of eight points Or

The color corrector has rendered the bulk of the yellow field as brown, but as at least some yellow is visible on the color corrected version, we are forwarding this armory as-is.


14: Sofya Gianetta di Trieste - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2016, via the East.

Or, a fleur-de-lys within an orle gules

The color corrector has rendered the bulk of the yellow field as brown, but as at least some yellow is visible on the color corrected version, we are forwarding this armory as-is.


15: Stronghold of Ravensdale - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of February 28, 2017 as submitted.

Per chevron inverted embattled argent and vert, in pale a raven displayed sable maintaining in its claws an apple branch proper fructed gules and a laurel wreath argent

There is an SFPP for a non-eagle displayed.


In Service,

Yehuda ben Moshe

Blue Tyger Herald
