Traveler is a constructed English descriptive byname, found in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. travailour. From the April 2009 LoAR acceptance of Sean Traveler:

We agree with the assessment of Pelican Emeritus. On the basis of the examples cited by her and by Batonvert, Traveler, without the definite article, follows period patterns of descriptive bynames in English. We hereby rule that Traveler, or another period spelling of the term, is no longer considered SCA-compatible, but is registerable as a constructed byname (though of course we would encourage people to use one of the actually documented bynames instead of Traveler). While none of the commenters were able to find an explicit example of the spelling traveler in our period, the single -l- spelling is consistent with spellings found in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. travailour.

Herald of Record: Tanczos Istvan

The form states that the device is a change for Skjaldvor Vikarsdottir; however, since Skjaldvor Vikarsdottir also submitted a name change to Gemma Vespucci, these two submissions are paired. Client has approved the action.

Herald of Record: Rhiannon Morgaine

Scott), "Medieval German Given Names from Silesia" [URL: http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/bahlow_v.htm] dates the submitted spelling to 1581. Also, Brechenmacher, p. 172, s.n.

15: John Travailour -Resub Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (one who travels) most important.

Herald of Record: Sisuile Butler

The original submission, John Traveler, was returned at kingdom for lack of a definite article. Although an April 2009 precedent could have been used for an appeal, the client has elected to resubmit using a different form of the name. From the April 2009 LoAR acceptance of Sean Traveler:

We agree with the assessment of Pelican Emeritus. On the basis of the examples cited by her and by Batonvert, Traveler, without the definite article, follows period patterns of descriptive bynames in English. We hereby rule that Traveler, or another period spelling of the term, is no longer considered SCA-compatible, but is registerable as a constructed byname (though of course we would encourage people to use one of the actually documented bynames instead of Traveler). While none of the commenters were able to find an explicit example of the spelling traveler in our period, the single -l- spelling is consistent with spellings found in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. travailour.

John - Withycombe's The Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names notes that John was "a fairly common English name in the 12-15th C".

Travailour - Travailour is a constructed English descriptive byname, found in the Middle English Dict s.v. travailour.

Marie de Blois discussed this with Sisuile, the consulting herald, who stated that she discussed the problematic return from AEthelmearc and the possibility of appeal with the submitter and his mother (submitter is 8), and that she also brought up the potentially negative connotations of Traveller. After consultation, the submitter and his mother *like* Travailour, because it is somewhat earlier period and is of French origin (or at least French sound), and so they are pursuing this as a resubmission rather than appeal.


16: Kaisa Huttinen -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Finnish) most important.
Culture (Finnish) most important.

Herald of Record: Rhiannon Morgaine

Kaisa is a Finnish feminine given name. The article "Vanhat imityyppimme (Finnish Names)" by Rouva Gertrud (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm) attests a Kaisa Larssdotter from 1571, citing the source as "Suomen historiallisia lähteitä V:6. Suomen hopeaveroluettelot 1571 -- VI Pohjanmaa. Ed. Matti Walta. Suomen historiallinen seura 1985" p. 49.

Huttinen is a locative found in "Finnish Family Names for Inhabitants Assessed for Taxes in Savonlinna Province in 1571" (http://www.genealogia.fi/nimet/nimi13ae.htm). Gertrud's article supra says of locatives that "The locative could be the name of the village or house. The locatives were formed in all the same ways as were patronymics (-nen, -n, -inen, -in)."


17: Lisebet van der Mere -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
