4: Anton de Federi -New Name & New Device

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Language (German 14th-16th century) most important.

Anton is a German masculine given name listed in Late Period German Masculine Given Names: Names from 16th Century Plauen by Talan Gwynek (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/germmasc/plauen16.html):

Under Christian names: Anton (1501-1550)

Federi is dated to 1387 in Bahlow:

s.n. Feder. Occupational surname Federer meaning fletcher or feather handler. <Federl> dated to 1387.

Correction to Name (2017-Aug-15 12:08:06): The submitter confirmed that the submitted name should be <Federl> like in the referred documentation, and that "Federi" is a typo.

The device was previously returned in kingdom (ILoI 2017-06-10; then submitted under <Antony Hellirsson>) due to the name being returned. (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=14&id=76336)

Also ambiguous positioning of the feathers was noted in the commentary and is corrected in this redraw.

Correction to Device (2017-Aug-15 12:08:25): The submitter confirmed that the name should be <Federl>; "Federi" is a typo.


5: Arianna Weidseckerin -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Arianna is an English female given name found, spelled as <Ariana>, in FamilySearch Historical Records:

ARIANA SAUNDERS Female Christening 12 Nov 1598 Westminster, London, England. Batch: P001451 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWDG-ZQY)

ARIANA JAMES Female Christening 24 Apr 1619 Cornwall, England. Batch: C022522 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NGS7-DMX)

Although there are no examples of <Arianna> with the double 'N', it seems plausible as there are several examples of names that have variations with both a single and double 'N's such as:

<Anna> vs <Ana>

ANNA ABIAS, Christening 22 Apr 1580; Batch: C07001-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N56F-CHJ)

ANA WILLARD, Marriage 19 Jun 1576; England, Batch: M01875-4 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NN1P-X5C)

In Women's Surnames in 15th- and 16th-Century Germany by Aryanhwy merch Catmael it's described how German women could use the feminine form of their husband or father's surname:

"The standard way of forming a feminine form of a surname is by adding <-in> to the end of it." E.g. Margreth Pfeifferin (from Pfeiffer).

Thus the feminine form of <Weidsecker> would be <Weidseckerin>.

Arianna Weidseckerin combines an English given name and a German byname. LoAR 02-2015 under `From Pelican: English-German Lingual Mixes'

(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/02/15-02cl.html#2):

"[W]e will allow the borrowing of given names from German into English and vice versa, in the context of the 16th and early 17th centuries. An English given name that is borrowed from German is considered to be English under Appendix C, and a German given name that is borrowed from English is considered to be German."

The submitter has a Persian persona.

Jahanara is to be grandfathered to the submitter.

Suren is found in Sasanian Persia: The Rise and Fall of an Empire by Daryaee, T. (I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd. New York. 2009) (#1):

"The nobility (wuzurgan), whose loyalty to their clan was paramount, now submitted to the Sasanians. Such families as Waraz, <Suren>, Andigan, Karen, and others were given various honors and positions, such as being master of ceremonies or crown bestower."

The device change was previously returned in LoAR 02-2015 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/02/15-02lar.html#156):

Jahanara of West Dragoningshire. Device change. Vert, in fess three bezants each charged with a lotus flower affronty purpure.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

Ossi is the legal given name of the submitter. A partial scan of passport is included in the package to verify this. The submitter is a minor, so the parents would rather not provide his full passport scan, but I as the internal Submissions Herald of Kingdom of Drachenwald can vouch for the document and that the name <Ossi> is indeed the legal first given name of the submitter.

Orava is a Finnish byname listed in Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names) by Kerttu Katariinantytär Roisko (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm):

s.n. PAAVALI: <Paual Orawa> 1431.

Period Finnish ortography was not entirely consistent, so that both 'w' and 'v' (and 'u') were used for the same sound. For an example on the same name phrase being spelled with 'v' or 'w' see the same source, Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names) by Kerttu Katariinantytär Roisko (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm):

s.n. Ervast: <Erfwast i Rawaldzby> 1442, <Ærvast Huctis> 1483.

Spelling most important.

Rikissa is a female given name found spelled in various ways in Danmarks Gamle Personnavne: I. Fornavne by Gunnar Knudsen and Marius Kristensen s.n. Rikiza. (#1-3)

The spelling <Rikissa> is the preferred one that can be seen in The Swedish National Archives: https://sok.riksarkivet.se/sbl/Presentation.aspx?id=6754 . If <Rikissa> is not an acceptable spelling, the submitter accepts the spelling <Rikiza>.

Apilgaard is a byname found spelled in various ways in Danmarks Gamle Personnavne: II. Tilnavne by Gunnar Knudsen and Marius Kristensen s.n. Apeldgarth. (#4-5)

<Apilgaard> is the preferred spelling but if it is not acceptable, the submitter accepts <Abildgaard>, dated to 1457.

It is not a problem if the appearance of the bend makes one think of a coronet, for the submitter has been granted Court Barony in 2015-09-12.

The submission was returned in LoAR 09-2014 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/09/14-09lar.html#186):

William of Richwood. Badge. (Fieldless) On a double rose sable, a goutte argent.

This device is returned for redraw. Precedent states:

This device is returned for redraw, for violating section VIII.4.d of the Rules for Submissions which requires that "modern style in the depiction of individual elements or the total design may not be registered." This modern "apostrophe" style of gouttes is not registerable without period evidence. Gouttes should ideally be drawn with wavy tails. [Miklos Farma, R-Calontir, April 2012 LoAR]

This is repeated in SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a period armorial style."

This redraw has abandoned the problematic "apostrophe" style of the goutte.


Yours in Service,
