Здравствуйте unto all the College of Heralds! Skaia Ruby wishes all to have comfortable weather as those of us in Gleann Abhann seek shady trees, cool drinks, and the nearest breeze!

I would like to take a moment to thank each and every person who has commented, looked up further information, had long, drawn out discussions about heraldry and encouraged others. You are what make this fun. Thank you.

1: Æoelbeorht of Harduic - New Name & New Device

Per saltire azure and gules in pale two stag's heads cabossed and in fess two Maltese crosses formy argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Æoelbeorht: Old English equivelent of Old German Adalbert, pg 9 of Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names by E. G. Withycombe.

Harduic: Domesday Book of 1086, image included from Domesday Commemoration Committee: Domesday Commemoration, 1086 AD - 1886 AD Domesday Studies by the Royal Historical Society of Great Britian. [https://archive.org/details/domesdaycommemo01britgoog}

Placenames.org.uk also gives it with various spellings from to 1050 CE to 1668 CE with the Domesday Book of 1086 being listed. Image is included below. [http://placenames.org.uk/browse/mads/epns-deep-96-b-subparish-000091]

Consulting onomastic herald(s): None listed.

Correction to Device (2017-Sep-15 19:09:08): Given the ME forms of the place name (Hardwich, -vic, -uich, -wic, -uic(h), -wic', etc) in Watts, s.n. Hardwick, I can see of Harduic as an interpolated ME form. Therefore, we could register as submitted instead of changing to the OE form.

Correction to Device (2017-Sep-17 08:09:28): Ignore that correction - my fat fingers hit the wrong link. Contacting Istvan to remove... - Lillia
