Heraldic Title Comments:

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-13 07:50:26
First let us date the word and meaning to period:
Middle English Dictionary Entry s.n. pimpernel(e (n.)
https://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/med/
(a) One of several plants, variously decumbent or having stalks and having red, purplish-red, or white flowers; esp. the Great and Salad Burnets (Sanguisorba officinalis and Paterium sanguisorba), Burnet Saxifrage (Pimpinella saxifraga), and the Pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis);
c1450 Med.Bk.(1) (Med-L 136) 170/524: To knaw the lyue of a woundid man, wheþer he shall leue or dye, take þe rede pympernell and stamp it in a mortere & tamper it with watir or wyne and giffe it to þe woundid man to drynke.

The society registers the pimpernel as an heraldic charge.

An heraldic title may be formed from an existing heraldic charge name.

2: Adelaide de Beaumont -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 1981, via the West.

Argent, three chevronels braced and in chief a unicorn passant azure

Old Item: Ermine, a unicorn courant between in pale a crescent Or and three chevronels braced vert., to be released.

FROM THE SUBMITTER:

Adelaide de Beaumont

This name was registered in June of 1981 (via the West).

The following device associated with this name was registered in June of 1981 (via the West) and changed/released in October of 1982 (via the West):

Ermine, a unicorn courant between in pale a crescent Or and three chevronels braced vert.

The above was "released" in 1982, but per SOP still shows.

The following device associated with this name was registered in October of 1982 (via the West):

Argent, a unicorn courant between three chevronels inverted braced and three chevronels braced azure.

The above are the current arms to be changed/released.

Device Comments:

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-12 15:08:25
I'm not sure what is meant by "SOP", but the Ermine version has in fact been released while remaining in the O&A, as all released items (and even misblazoned ones) do in perpetuity. The perhaps non-obvious but reliable way to determine release is to display the item with its armory descriptions shown: http://oanda.sca.org/oanda_complexb.cgi?w1=1&m1=name+pattern&p1=Adelaide+de+Beaumont&a=enabled. It has none, to avoid interference with standard conflict checks, whereas the Argent version is coded.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-13 08:15:27
This is the current registered device:
The following device associated with this name was registered in October of 1982 (via the West):
Argent, a unicorn courant between three chevronels inverted braced and three chevronels braced azure.

I gather this one is to be released. No conflict found.

Eirik Halfdanarson (Star) at 2017-09-15 14:44:00
The form states that the current device is to be released, which would be the one that Magnus cites.

Adelaide de Beaumont at 2017-09-24 21:28:34
Standard Operating Procedure. I do know why we keep all the released items in the O&A, but it's hard to have to relive your ignorance over and over.


3: Adelaide de Beaumont -New Badge Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 1981, via the West.

(Fieldless) Issuant from the bell of a straight trumpet Or, a pimpernel sprig vert flowered gules

Old Item: Argent, three chevronels inverted braced and three chevronels braced azure., to be released.

The following badge associated with this name was registered in October of 1982 (via the West):

Argent, three chevronels inverted braced and three chevronels braced azure.

Badge Comments:

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-13 08:22:43
Heralds are easily confused. It would be a very good idea to put off the badge release or make it a separate entry. That is an administrative action which can be done at any time. The submitter is not at the registration limit for armory.

No conflict found.

Adelaide de Beaumont at 2017-09-24 21:26:56
I would be happy to do whatever is needed to make it a separate entry, but I really want it gone. (Bad heraldic example, no biscuit!)


4: Artemis Moondragon -New Name & New Device

Azure, a dormant squirrel and on a chief embattled argent three roses azure

No changes.

Artemis - http://www.lgpn.ox.ac.uk/database/lgpn.php

Permission to Conflict form signed by Tivar Moondragon

Name Comments:

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia at 2017-09-12 09:17:25
Is she related to Tivar and attempting to "inherit" the byname, or is there documentation for it as a period name?

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-12 11:42:40
She is related.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 12:28:09
What is needed is evidence that Artemis is a close legal relative to someone who has registered Moondragon rather than Permission to Conflict.

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-12 12:31:32
I need to check, but I believe the PtC had legal names, which is why it wasn't posted. I'll check with Asterisk and see what we can do. likely just add the text with names redacted.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 12:38:02
The rule for this is SENA PN.1.B.2.g A name phrase from a registered name of an individual may also be registered by a close legal relative (such as parent, spouse, child, sibling, etc.). To do this, the submitter must demonstrate the relationship through legal documents or through attestation of relationship from the individual whose name is already registered.

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-12 12:42:20
We have the attestation of relationship rolled into the PtC. I've sent a message to our internal to get things updated and get further docs if necessary.

Eirik Halfdanarson (Star) at 2017-09-15 14:42:26
I can attest as Star Principal Herald that I have known Tivar Moondragon for over 20 years and that his daughter, Rosalind Moondragon is the mother of Artimes Moondragon who is wanting to register Moondragon as a surname. She is entitled to register it both as the granddaughter of Tivar Moondragon and the daughter of Rosalind Moondragon.

Device Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2017-09-12 10:57:34
Since we put postures after charges, make this: Azure, a squirrel dormant and on a chief embattled argent three roses azure.

Kryss Kostarev at 2017-09-15 10:57:59
Just an opinion but I think that is a particularly nicely drawn dormant squirrel. No problems identifying that one at all.

5: Judith de Saint Clare -New Name & New Device

Please consider the following possible conflicts identified by OSCAR (many will not be conflicts): Josette de Chantecler(6/1976)

Per pale azure and sable, a sun in his glory Or and in chief three crescents argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Judith: Judith is a name from France, dated in this spelling to 1015, 1173, and the late 16th century. Found in the DEMNES, sn. "Judith", S.L. Uckelman, ed The Dictionary of Medieval names from European Sources, Edition 2016, no. 4

de: SENA Appendix A allows the use of locative bynames in French with the article de

Saint Clare: Saint Clare is the vernacular form of a French locative byname dated to the 13th century. From the June 2016 LoAR [Vivienne de Saint Clare, 06/2016 LoAR, A - Drachenwald] "Negre's Toponymie generale de la France, s.n. Saint Clair gives the 13th century Latinized forms villa de Sancto Claro (1287) and sancti Clarus (1275). The form de Sancto Claro is found in 13th century England, also describing a town in Normandy. Therefore, the vernacular French form... is likely de Saint Clare"

6: Krum Kolomna -New Name

Please consider the following possible conflicts identified by OSCAR (many will not be conflicts): Kiara nic Ailin(6/1993)

Krum: Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names.

http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/kp.html lists 807 as year

Kolomna: Locative bynames in Medieval Russia

http://heraldry.sca.org/names/toprus.html lists 1522 as year

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 11:32:57
I suspect Krum is 9th century Bulgarian but the online Moroshkin is acting up.

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-09-12 18:32:10
Moroshkin p. 106 sn. Крумъ is for the Bulgar Khan.
(https://archive.org/stream/slavianskimenos00morogoog#page/n218/mode/1up)
And wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krum

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 23:15:41
This name has problems doesn't it?

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-09-15 18:08:25
I am hoping that a forthcoming LoAR cover letter will clarify how Wickenden is to be used. But I would tentatively* suggest that since Wickenden doesn't mention that Krum is a Bulgar, the submitter should be given the benefit of the doubt that it is a Russian name, and since Wickenden only mentions the earliest instance of a name, it's hard to tell if it's a unique name or if there are other examples out there. Again, the college tends towards giving the benefit of the doubt. Especially since the submitter has not made any authenticity requests.

*While hoping the LoAR cover letter comes out soon, otherwise this is just hearsay from a random herald!

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-16 00:48:41
This ruling seems to demand this submission be returned. I only hope the upcoming Cover Letter fixes this. Both of us know how to use Paul's reference but many others do not. (I took his class at KWHS when the 3rd edition was released.) We now have most of his sources online and several Pelicans have quoted from them. What is a herald or a good Russian to do?

[January 2013 LoAR, A-Middle] Kasha Alekseeva.
The name was documented from Paul Wickenden of Thanet's "Dictionary of Period Russian Names." It dates Kasha to 670 and Alekseeva to 1470, a span of 800 years. This combination would not be registerable, as SENA PN2C2a requires that a name mixing name phrases wihin a single regional naming pool be dated to within 500 years of one another.
One weakness of this source is that only the first citation of any name element is dated. Thus, it is not clear how long the name Kasha remained in use as a feminine name. However, the identical masculine name is dated to late period, so we are willing to give her the benefit of the doubt that the name continued in use long enough to be compatible with the byname and register the name as submitted.

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-09-18 23:12:30
I read the January 2013 ruling the other way -- the submission should be sent up.

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-09-23 18:10:38
And it's out! The July 2017 LoAR cover letter says:
http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/07/17-07cl.html#3
"... where the submitter has not requested authenticity, names found in the [ie. Wickenden's] Dictionary will be treated as Russian, regardless of their source."

and:
"...the Dictionary gives only the earliest dated instance of a particular name under the heading for that name.... Because only the earliest date is given for most names, we generally give submitters the benefit of the doubt that name elements found in the Dictionary are temporally compatible."

8: Nicaize Maupetit -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) A lotus flower affronty azure charged with a labyrinth argent

Badge Comments:

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 12:31:55
Suggested blazon: (Fieldless) On a lotus blossom affronty azure, a labyrinth argent.

The labyrinth appears to be the central structure of the flower seeded argent.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-12 15:32:27
Concur. For me, the same charge in submitter's proposed device, https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=4732&dsn=79255#7 in this letter, is just clear enough. On this badge, from appropriate viewing distance the most I can see is an unusually boring target, not a labyrinth.

Making this labyrinth less complex, inserting at lest two half-circle barriers like the ones visible at greater distance on the device, or both, would clarify its nature for heraldic use.

As it is, I regretfully recommend return for unidentifiability of the tertiary charge.

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-15 15:39:15
Submitter authorized a redraw based on the concerns with the labyrinth.

1: Image 1 2: Image 2

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-15 16:11:42
I have no problems with that labyrinth, but with that blue, the internal detailing of the lotus pretty well disappears for me. Can we get yet another version with visible detailing for the flower?

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-15 16:39:35
You are welcome to break out the markers. This is the standard blue I use with everything, and I just left the office for the week. Getting married next week, so this is likely my last contribution for a week or two.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-15 17:23:45
Well, we can hope for someone else coping; this is another area where I'm useless.

Felicitations on the marriage!

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-18 09:58:15
Ran our decision meeting last night and needed to tweak something else - and if I didn't do it today, I wouldn't remember, so here's a slightly lighter blue? I'm not comfortable enough with values to fiddle too much with them, but this appears, at least on my screen, to allow for the black to be better seen.

9: Phoebe Saint Michael -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 1999, via Ansteorra.

Per pale azure and vert, a rabbit dormant in chief argent three mullets of four greater and four lesser points gules

Device Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2017-09-12 11:23:46
Reblazon: Per pale azure and vert, a rabbit dormant contourny and on a chief argent three compass stars gules.

There is a step from period practice for the compass stars, but it appears to be the only one.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 11:39:10
This cannot be a New Device as the submitter already has a device. My guess is it would be a Change of Device. Does the submitter wish to retain the old device as a badge or release it?
Phoebe Saint Michael The following device associated with this name was registered in September of 1992 (via Ansteorra):
Argent estencely, a cat couchant sable.

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-12 11:45:08
She wishes to retain her old device as a badge.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-12 15:34:39
So long as I've made the count I may as well share it:

azure + vert + rabbit + chief + argent + compass stars + gules = 7. No problem.

This shows that between 1000 and 1200 that a woman could have the name Ragna Jósepdatter, being that both the female name Ragna and the male name Jósep were in use

Name Comments:

So the next part is to show -datter used in 14th c. Norwegian names:
Dyry Haagensdatter, Bergitte Olsdatter, og Angiær Colbiørnsdatter, 1361 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=13540&s=n&str=%datter)

So Ragna Josepsdatter would be a fine 14th c. Norse name.

Well, the lot next door: http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1993/08/lar.html s.n. Dolores Isabella Cisneros de los Gitanos shows Azure, a pine Or. Hurray for the Modest Proposal!

And so nobody else has to look it up: Apparently <Claudas> refers to the king in various period Arthurian tales.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 23:20:46

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-13 16:56:54
Huh? The text I'm relying on is "This conflicts with Claudas (Fabulous Heraldry, p.57): Azure, a pine Or." What do you see that I don't?

Elena Wyth (Bordure) at 2017-09-13 17:03:35
For whatever reason, the name didn't get bolded, and the entry you're reading is under <Gwendolyn MacAuslane of Loch Lomond>. Device. Quarterly azure and vert, a pine tree Or., which conflicted with the Claudas bit cited.

With just a change of the field, doesn't this conflict with Claudas as well?

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-13 17:50:40
That is from 1993. Claudas isn't in the O&A, so we don't protect that armory anymore. The submitter has found a forgotten bit of heraldic real estate that is clear.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-13 17:52:33
Ah! It's my "s.n." that Lord Magnus correctly disputes.

As for the conflict, King Claudas would have to be worth entering in the O&A with "Important non-SCA arms". I doubt he is. For one thing, I could find no mention of his arms on the Net.

Iago ab Adam at 2017-09-12 12:09:45
'Overall' isn't required here since the tree is the primary charge.

Quarterly gules and vert, a pine tree couped Or.

(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/07/16-07lar.html#241)
"Submitted as StigR Arngeirrsson, the name was changed in kingdom to Stigr Arngeirsson to use a standard transliteration of the given name and to correct the genitive (possessive) form of the byname. However, we allow the registration of the runic forms, so we have restored the given name to the submitted form."

So if the submitter wants SkarfR, he can have it, it seems.

Does the submitter indicate if he wants to be the son of "Sebbi the strong", or if he wants to be "Skeggi bare-leg the strong, son of Sebbi"?

Annais de Montgomerie at 2017-09-18 14:18:43
Submitter wishes to be son of Sebbi the strong.

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-09-18 21:59:20
In which case I'd expect to see "Skeggi berbeinn Sebbason ins sterka."
(To explain, "inn sterki" goes into the genitive case to match Sebbi -> genitive Sebba. So the name literally is "Skeggi bare-leg Sebbi's son the strong's" or, in more readable English "<Skeggi bare-leg>, <Sebbi the strong>'s son"

Many thanks. I was the name consult on this submission, and... Norse grammar past the basics is definitely not my strong suit. He has no objection to the change in spelling to clarify this.

Showing once again that word-for-word translation, even into a related language, doesn't necessarily work.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-13 18:27:54
All of the saltires voided registered are on a single tincture field. This is the first submitted on a divided field. This may cause thin line heraldry problems of contrast.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-13 18:37:25
I had a similar thought and went hunting for voided shapes in the OSCAR era. I immediately found one, Drákon Athenadôrou's registered device at https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=69879, Jan 2017, even narrower. "Thin-line" has been described as like a single pen-stroke. I don't think the stripes here quite meet that standard to be returned.

14: Terrence ad te Syke -New Name & New Device

Argent, two chevronels sable between two fountains and a dolphin naiant azure

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Language most important.

Terrence - (1552)names found in Anglicized Irish Documents by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (Kathleen M. O'Brien)

http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Masculine.shtml

Chose "ad te" from Latin "of the" but would accept "atte", if necessary as a substitution.

Sykes - Reaney and Wilson, pg 437, Variants found are Sike and Siche d. 1327

Name Comments:

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia at 2017-09-12 09:27:18
You can't add random prepositions to random surnames. It turns out that Sykes is the sort of generic topographic element that took "at the", but this is not at all clear from that summary.

R&W s.n. Sykes dates atte Siche 1327 and del Sikes 1309 (among others), and says it refers to residence near a small shallow stream or streams.

However, ad te does NOT mean "at the" in Latin. It means "to you", and it just does not work in a locative byname.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-12 16:06:57
So (with notification to submitter) we can send up <Terrence atte Syke>.

I wouldn't think it's authentic, since <atte> is Middle English and 1552 isn't, quite, but I suppose it's registerable even if we allow only 300 years between them as different languages.

Joh. atte Syche. 1384
But also has in the non-surname section:
"Riuus: syke." a1425
"Do scope þis water & turn þe borne; Sykes [F ruissiax] do ȝe graue..Þe water þer-inne men schal scoupe." a1450
"Myth I ryde be sompe and syke And be ryche and lordlyke, Certys þanne schulde I be fryke." a1450

So "atte Syke" seems plausible?

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia at 2017-09-13 08:13:51
Since i/y switches are a dime a dozen in English, the R&W citations are probably enough to get atte Syke.

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia at 2017-09-12 09:33:02
Again, you can't just add random prepositions to random surnames. The Latin preposition de was used with placenames to create locative bynames, so to get de Man, you'd need to find evidence for Man as the name of a place.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-12 12:23:55
In this case I guess you can. SENA allows English and Dutch to mix.

15th Century Dutch Names by Aryanhwy merch Catmael
http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/dutch/dutch15surnames.html
de Man 1478 'the man, the husband'

Unless de can now count for difference under SENA this would conflict with:
Hugh Mann registered in January of 2002 (via Atlantia).

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-12 16:19:49
Under http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN3C1, "Changes to Two Syllables", <de> counts. But we don't have two syllables difference here. Under PN3C2, "Substantial Change to One Syllable", it's explicitly discounted.

So concur, conflict with <Hugh Mann>.

Fortunately!--since we thus don't have to advise on Obtrusive Modernity. (Given how often I've missed what seems to have been screamingly obvious to others, I should be explicit: The admiring phrase from African American English, "You da man!")


16: Walter Thomas Longstride -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Ansteorra LoI of September 05, 2017 as submitted.

Gules, a lion rampant and on a chief embattled Or two arrows inverted in saltire gules

Device Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2017-09-12 12:34:29
'Rampant' is our default for lions, so: Gules, a lion and on a chief embattled Or two arrows inverted in saltire gules.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2017-09-13 11:12:10
Dominic Beniamin registered in April of 2016 (via Trimaris):
Gules, a lion rampant gardant and on a chief embattled Or two Maltese crosses sable.

I believe there is a DC for tincture and one for arrangement of tertiary group. All others clear of this submission.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-13 17:01:51
And surely one for type.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-09-12 16:25:11
Checking the O&A, I see this is a strong tendency, not a rule. So if submitter actually cares about that part of the blazon ...
