Atlantia LoP dated 2017-09-12

Unto Cian Triton, Beatrice Golden Dolphin, and the Atlantian College of Heralds does Catherine Ibis send warm greetings! This letter contains the submissions received at Pennsic, and those between August 10th and September 10th. Commentary for this letter will close October 15th, 2017.

1: Aine Meave d'Alton -Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Aine Meave d'Alton in June of 2015, via Atlantia.

Per chevron counter ermine and azure, a unicorn's head erased contourney argent and in base a crescent Or

This is a resubmission after the October 2016 Kingdom-level return of the device "Per chevron counter-ermine and azure, a unicorn's head contourny erased argent and in base a crescent Or":

The device is being returned for redraw for a couple of reasons. The first reason being the size of the crescent. The crescent is almost visually equivalent in size to the unicorn head, which it means it blurs

the line between a co-primary and a secondary charge. The crescent needs to be draw a little bit smaller so that is obvious that is a secondary charge. The second reason is a minor artistic detail, the unicorn's horn is hard to identify being drawn on an ermine spot. The horn is major defining characteristic of a unicorn head, upon resubmission please draw the unicorn horn on the black part of the field and not on an ermine spot.

Device Submission History

March 2015 Atlantian Return of "Per chevron counter-ermine and azure, a unicorn's head erased contourny argent and in base a crescent Or"

This device was returned because the per chevron line division does not divide the areas of the device equally. As per the May 2011 Cover Letter "Per chevron lines of division, chevrons as a primary charge, and their inversions should have their mid-line placed roughly on the notional mid-line of the space available to them." Please advise the submitter, the placement of the unicorn's head does diminish the identifiability of the per chevron line.


2: Alessandro Andreardi -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2013, via Ansteorra.

(Fieldless) A sword Or issuant from a vol argent.


3: Angelina Falconis -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2010, via Ansteorra.

Per bend sable and azure, on a bend between two falcons rising argent three Pisan crosses gules


4: Anne Jehanne Hollydaye -New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2015, via Atlantia.

Halldis Skogadottir

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Culture most important.

<Halldis> This is a feminine given name found in Geirr-Bassi, The Old Norse Name, pg.10, as Halldis.

<Skogadottir> Used as a patronymic byname. <Skogi> is found in Nordiskt runnamnslexikon. (Dictionary of Names from Old Norse Runic Inscriptions by Lena Peterson). Språk- och folkminnes-institutet (Institute for Dialectology, Onomastics and Folklore Research)http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#s

<dottir> indicates female descendent. When both are combined as a by-name the "i" is replaced with an "a" according the Geir-Bassi, pg.17, The Formation of Patronymics and Matronymics.


5: Anne Whetley -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (last name should sound like What or Whet but NOT Whit) most important.

Anne: Anne Thackerawe 1566 s.v. Thackeray Reaney p.442

Whetley: DSO 1592 in Julie Kahan Surnames in Durham and Northumberland 1521-1615 in Academy of St. Gabriel https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/parish/surnames_wy.html


6: Artemisia Caterina da Corlione -New Device Change

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

Argent, a heart gules winged purpure within an orle of raspberry vine vert fructed gules and flowered argent

Old Item: Argent, a vol purpure within an orle of raspberry vine vert fructed gules and flowered argent, to be released.

Name was registered in May 2017 via Atlantia


7: Avelina del Dolce -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2005, via Æthelmearc.

Checky vert and argent ermined vert, a wooden hobbyhorse issuant from base, Proper, reined argent, wearing a flat cap gules feathered Or,

This is a resubmission following the Laurel return of the badge "Checky vert and argent ermined vert, a wooden hobbyhorse issuant from base proper, reined argent and wearing a flat cap gules feathered Or," in November 2016:

This device is returned for violating SENA A3E2, which states complexity of a design is "measured by adding the number of types of charges to the number of tinctures. Items with a complexity count of eight or less receive no penalty for complexity from this rule." Here we have three charges (horse, cap, feather) and six tinctures (vert, argent ermined vert, argent, brown, gules, Or), for a total complexity count of nine. To be registered, this device would have to be shown to follow a period pattern of charges and tinctures; this evidence was not found by commenters.

Additionally, the argent rein and its overlap with argent sections of the field impairs the identifiability of the charge.


8: Bronwyn Catt -New Name & New Device

Per pale purpure and vert, an artists brush between three domestic cats sejeant argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Bronwyn is an English feminine given name found in FamilySearch Historical records: Bronwyn N., f, 26 Jul 1620, Northaw, Hertford, England. Batch #M01288-1.

Catt is a byname found in the FamilySearch Historical records: Robert Catt, m, 10 Jan 1626, Saint Michaels, Withyham, Sussex, England, Batch: #C15201-2.


9: Christophoros Artemios the Heretic -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for Byzantine.

Christophoros dated 980 in Masculine Given Names Table in Berret Chavez (Bardas) Personal Names of the Aristocracy in the Roman Empire during the Later Byzantine Era Academy of St. Gabriel http://heraldry.sca.org/names/byzantine/masc_given_names.html

Artemios: Artemius (Artemios in Greek transliteration: Anastasius II A. Emperor 713 -715 Byzantine Names for SCA Personae by Hrolf Herjolfsson


Academy of St. Gabriel https://www.s-gabriel.org/lnaiebrmes./greek.shtml "the Heretic" lingua Anglicana byname. Client would prefer the Greek, which I believe to be "ho heretikos" but I have not found documentation of the form. Bardas does discuss nicknames in the article cited above but does not give a list. Submitter prefers finding a period phrasing for "the heretic", but will accept LA if not possible, and will allow omission of the phrase if needed for registration.


10: Curley Osbourne -New Name & New Device

Per pale argent and azure, a double-bitted axe sable between two bears' heads couped respectant counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (curly osborn) most important.

Curley is found in Reaney and Wilson, s.n. Curley, dated to 1642.

Osbourne is found in Family Search: Hugh Osbourne, Lincoln, England 1623, batch C03710-2 John Osbourne, Sussex, England 1578, batch C04120-1

Appendix allows the use of surnames as given names in late period English names


11: Dagný austkona -New Name & New Device

Azure, on a pale between two herons respectant argent, three new world dogwood blossoms sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (Dagny) most important.

Dagný is found in the Viking Answer Lady site, saying "The name Dagný appears in the early 14th century legendary saga Þórsteins þáttr bæjarmagns as the mother of the title character." The name can also be constructed from Dagr- "day" and -ny "new." Viking Answer Lady cites Cleasby, Richard and Guðbrandr Vigfusson. An Icelandic-English Dictionary pp. 94-95 s.v. dagr and Lena Peterson. Nordiskt runnamnslexikon. s.v. -ný

austkona is our guess at "east-woman." Geirr Bassi, pg. 19 lists austmaðr meaning "east man" and we think that some form of austkona would be the feminine form. Kona "woman" and austan ("from the east") are found in Cleasby-Vigfusson as header forms, with examples such as skáld-kona ("a poetess"), vin-kona ("a female friend"), and grið-kona ("a female servant"); and austan-sjór ("the east sea, nickname of a man"), austan-ma{dr}r ("A man from the east"), and austan-vindr ("an east wind"). We are asking for help with the construction.


12: Danielle Clare d'Avignon -New Name & New Device

Sable, on a bend argent between two fleurs-de-lys Or, a slip of lavender purpure slipped and leaved vert

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (spelling of Danielle) most important.

'Danielle' is submitter's mundane first name shown on her Virginia driver's license, as attested by Nicolaa de Bracton and Thomas Haworth.

'Clare' is found as a feminine given name in the name of Clare Dedoigne in Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Names Found in Commercial Documents from Bordeaux, 1470 - 1520" at http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/French/Bordeaux.html.

'Avignon' is a city in France, found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Draft: names in the 1292 census of Paris," (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/1292paris.pdf). The construction d'Avignon is a French elision of de Avignon meaning 'from Avignon'.

Double given names and locative bynames are found in France and Italy in App. A of SENA.

The second given name 'Clare' should clear a possible conflict with 'Danielle d'Avignon' registered in July of 1997 via Atenveldt.


13: Dieter Richterl -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a osprey striking argent and in base a quill pen issuant from an inkwell Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

16: Durant de La Croix -New Name & New Device

Azure, a swan displayed and in chief three suns, one an two, within a bordure embattled argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (meaning Durant of the cross (or from La Croix)) most important.

18: Eleanor Bywater -New Name

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

Eleanor: Withycombe, 96.

Bywater: 13 MAR 1576 St Mary, Lichfield, Stafford, England. IGI Batch C13560-5. Bardsley s.n. Bywater dates Johanna Bythewater and Johannes Bethewater to 1379. Bywater as part of a place can be dated to before that - at 1257 as Allerton Bywater (Ekwall s.n. Allerton) and to 1493 as the same (Watts s.n. Allerton). Bithewater: 1219, Reaney, s.n. Bywater (78).

Submitter would prefer a 14th-century form as close to Bywater as possible.
