Drachenwald LoI dated 2017-08-31

Unto Emma Laurel, Alys Pelican, Cormac Wreath, and the commenting Members of the College of Arms, greetings from Stefanu de Mohac, Albion.

It is the intent of the Drachenwald College of Heralds that the following submissions be registered.

We would like to thank Adelaide de Beaumont, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Daya Speyerin (Gopher Herald), Lyonet de Covenham (Schwarzdrachen), Mór inghean Bhriain (Edelweiss), Nicholas de Estleche dictus le Tardif (Coteswold), Kolosvari Arpadne Julia, and ffride wlffsdotter for the useful commentary on the kingdom letter.

1: Agata Grene - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

<Agata> is a female given name found dated to 1303 as <Agatha> in Withycombe s.n. Agatha. <Agata> is the preferred spelling of the submitter, but if it's not possible, she will accept the spelling <Agatha>.

<Grene> is a byname dated to 1230 in Reaney & Wilson:

s.n. Green "...Alexander, William Grene 1230 P(Y), c1248 Bec (O);"

During kingdom commentary, it was noted that the spelling Agata can be documented as a late period German name (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NLNC-NBL), and that if Grene can be documented as a similarly late period English byname, they could be combined according to precedent:

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."

4: Anton de Federl - New Name & New Device

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound 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)

Federl is dated to 1387 in Bahlow:

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


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)

Weidseckerin is a German given name dated to 1612 in FamilySearch.org:

NICLAS WEIDSECKER Male, Birth Date 1612; Jagstkreis, Wuerttemberg, Germany, Batch: B06529-7 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J4C4-54M)

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."


6: Dorothea Weberin - New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2006, via Drachenwald.

Haus zum Herzwald

Language (German 13th - 16th century) most important.
Culture (German 13th - 16th century) most important.
Meaning most important.

The household name is based on place name.

The submitter suggests that Haus zum is a German translation of the English <House of>, and mentions <House of York>, <House of Valois> and <House of Lorraine> as households named after the place of origin. The submitter prefers German due to the geographic origin of the place name <Herzwald>.

Herzwald is a small area in Liechtenstein (https://search.ortsnamen.ch/record/1007425). We have not been able to document it as a period place name, and would welcome any help in doing that.


7: Gilbert Blakthorn - New Name & New Device

Argent, a hawthorn branch bendwise sinister sable slipped gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (English) most important.

Old Item: Or, in fess three sexfoils purpure, to be retained as a badge.

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."

We would appreciate any help in documenting the name structure.

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.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Most commenters were unable to identify the charges on the roundels.

The redraw has larger lotus flowers with white internal detailing to increase identifiability.

11: Ossi Orava - New Name & New Device

Azure, a squirrel argent breathing fire and in base two arrows inverted in saltire Or.

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 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):

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.

15: William of Richwood - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 1999, via Drachenwald.

(Fieldless) On a double rose sable a goutte d'eau.

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.


Any and all assistance will be gratefully appreciated.

In service,

Stefanu de Mohac, Albion.
