2: Amadeus Emmanuel -New Name

Spelling (Amadeus) most important.

Per the submitter: The name comes from the list of the Dukes of Savoy, Amadeus VIII 1391-1440 and Charles Emmanuel I of 1580. Savoy was a state in Western Europe, it was made when Sigismund King of Romans raised the County of Savoy into a Duchy.

The surname is not important and can be changed to whatever will pass but "Amadeus" is set in stone.

Submitter cites madmonarchist.blogspot.com, http://regalis.com/reg/savhistory.htm, along with fs.ocfordjournals.org and https://www.revolvy.com, but with no specific article citations.


3: Angelina Draconis -New Name

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

Angelina can be found as an Italian name in "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Florence" by Juliana de Luna (https://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Florence.shtml) and "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Rome" by Juliana de Luna (https://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Rome.shtml)

Draconis is found in "Italian names in Latin from Imola, 1312" by Sara L. Uckelman (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/imolaraw.html). Per the author, "Deutacora Draconis" is "Deutacora [daughter] of Draco".


4: Ástriðr Arnardóttir -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2015, via the Middle.

Per saltire azure and gules, three greyhounds sejant contouney regardant in an orle argent.

Client's previous submission was returned on the June 2016 LOAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/06/16-06lar.html#250):

Ástriðr Arnardóttir. Device. Per saltire azure and gules, three greyhounds sejant regardant argent.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Cuán MacDaige: Checky azure and Or, three mastiffs sejant argent each gorged of a coronet gules. There is only one DC for changing the field but none for the type of dog and none for the removal of the gorging coronets, which are a blazonable detail not worth a DC.

The addition of the orle and change of posture of the greyhounds appears to clear this particular conflict.


5: Bertrande Fresneau -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2007, via the Middle.

(Fieldless) On a feuer-de-lis Or, a die gules.


6: Böjei Temür -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2003, via the Middle.

Azure, in pale two birds volant counter-volant Or.


7: Caer Gwynt, Barony of -New Branch Name & New Device

Per pale argent and sable, a tower counterchanged on a chief embattled vert a laurel wreath argent.

No major changes.
Sound (specified below) most important.
Meaning (specified below) most important.

http://welsh-dictionary.ac.uk/gpc/gpc.html

Caer - fort, fortress, enclosed stronghold, castle, citadel, fortified town or city.

Earliest use cited c.1200

Gwynt - wind, blast, gale, stiff breeze....

Earliest use cited c.1400

There is another group, Castell Gwent, with a similar name. Castell and Caer are very different sounds, even if the meaning is similar, and Gwent and Gwynt are two separate but similar sounding words in Welsh. Gwent is one of the old Kingdoms of Wales and Caer Gwent/Caergwent/Caerwent was considered the capital of that Kingdom. Gwynt, however, is the Welsh word for wind.

13: Karayil of Chennai -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2016, via the Middle.

Per fess purpure and argent, a crescent and lotus flower in profile counterchanged.

Client's previous submission, "Sable, on a lotus blossom affronty argent a fox dormant purpure," was returned on the January 2016 LOAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/01/16-01lar.html#352):

Karayil of Chennai. Device. Sable, on a lotus blossom affronty argent a fox dormant purpure.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters were unable to reliably identify the tertiary charge as a fox. Animals in a 'dormant' posture must have their limbs folded under them but they should be folded in a way so the limbs are distinct from the body and the head somewhat extended in front of them.

Additionally, the tertiary charge obscures the center of the lotus blossom and thus significantly reduces its identifiability which is in itself cause for return.


14: Karayil of Chennai -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2016, via the Middle.

Argent, a lotus flower in profile sable, enflamed proper.


15: Kveldulf Skallagrimsson of Borg -New Name & New Device

Azure, a wolf couchant regardant argent maintaining on his back a domestic cat dormant gardant Or and in chief a moon argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (indicated below) most important.

In Egil's saga, Kveldulf was the father of Skalla-Grímr Kveldúlfsson, who was the father of Egill Skallagrímsson. The Anglicised spelling of the surname is Skallagrimsson. In the saga, Skalla-Grímr built a homestead near Ship-ness and called his land Borg (sometimes, also spelled Børg).


16: Kveldulf Skallagrimsson of Borg -New Badge

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

Azure, a wolf couchant regardant argent maintaining on his back a domestic cat dormant gardant Or.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2014, via the Middle.

Vert, a polypus and bordure argent.

The original submission, which featured a 4-limbed polypus, was returned in July 2017. This 8-limbed depiction should clear the issue for return.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2014, via the Middle.

(Fieldless) A polypus argent within an annulet argent.

The original submission, (Fieldless) A polypus argent, was returned in July 2017.

Argent, in pale a Hand of Fatima inverted charged with an eye argent inset sable and a cauldera gringolada sable, a bordure azure.

Submitter was unsure if the color of the snakes was an artistic detail or not. She would like them to be blue as indicated in the emblazon.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2016, via the Middle.

Award of Perseus of Shadowed Stars

The submiter's previous device was returned on the January 2017 LOAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/01/17-01lar.html):

Sofonisba Voltera. Device. Argent, a peacock in his pride proper within a four lobed quadrate cornice sable, in chief two seeblätter gules.

This device is returned for violating SENA A3E1, Arrangement of Charge Groups. All patterns with three or more charge groups must be found in Appendix J or documented as a period arrangement. This arrangement, "a primary charge within a secondary charge, with another secondary charge group of enumerated charges", is not listed in SENA Appendix J, and so may not be registered without documentation that this is a period arrangement of charge groups.


27: Spurius Furius Germanus -New Device Change

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

Per pale and per saltire argent and gules, a rat rampant to sinister sable.

Old Item: Sable, a fess gules fimbriated between a feather fesswise and a gladius fesswise argent., to be retained as a badge.


28: Zilia degli Giudici -Resub Request for Name Reconsideration

OSCAR finds the name on the Middle LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Zilia del Giudice

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The name was modified due to lack of documentation for the spelling of the surname. Supporting documentation appears in Ireneo Affo, _Memorie degli scrittori e letterati parmigiani_ (Parma: Dalla Ducale Tipographia, 1827), 73-76 (attached, available online at bit.ly/2tv7Rtj). This is a discussion about whether a particular chronicle can be attributed to Giovanni del Giudice, who was living in Parma in 1360. This provides evidence that del Giudice was used as a surname in Parma in 1360.
