Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2017-11-07

Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ199, internal letter of intent. This letter includes submissions received by the Garnet office through October. It is the intent of the Garnet office to submit the following elements to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms for registration.

1: Anastasia MacBain -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a horse rampant contourny argent within an orle of roses Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (None stated) most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Anastasia: Withycombe, s.n. Anastasia, dated to 1220.

MacBain: Client is the mundane legal daughter of Morien MacBain (previously registered) and is wishing to use the grandfather clause for her surname. Letter provided by Morien is included in the packet.


2: Annika Iosafova -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per fess gules and ermine, in chief, four stalks of wheat Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Russian (Joseph as father\'s name)) most important.
Culture (Russian (Joseph as father\'s name)) most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Annika: Appears in "Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names)" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm)by Rouva Gertrud as a feminine name dating to 1571.

Iosaf: Appears in Wickenden, 3rd Edition, s.n. Ioasaf, dated to 1585-6. The construction for a masculine patronymic, according to p. xxii is <Iosafov> which for a feminine given name becomes <Iosafova>.

The name was previously pended at kingdom in September 2017.

While the given name was properly documented, the documentation for the by-name supported a different spelling than submitted by the client. Documentation located for the desired spelling is from Spain - a country that is not language compatible with the national origin of the given name. Several options were considered, but any of them constituted a major change. Since the client does not allow major changes, the submission is pended in order for the Garnet office to speak with her about the options, and gather additional documentation if possible.
The client has adopted one of the suggestions from internal commentary.

The device was previously returned at the kingdom level in September 2017 for violation of SENA A.2.C.2. Identifiability. Elements must be drawn to be identifiable.

Commenters felt that the line art was drawn too densely to be correctly identified as wheat heads. Lack of a significant stem contributed to this issue. In the color version, the yellow used to color the wheat bled over into the chief, eliminating any of the details that would separate wheat from brushier plants such as cattails. When resubmitting, the yellow should be limited only to the kernels, the whiskers should be exaggerated so as to be easily seen at a reasonable viewing distance, and the stems should be long enough to indicate a stalk.
This rendition has cleared that issue.


3: Conchobar na Féasóige -Resub Name & New Device

Vert, a right hand apaumee argent, on a base Or a goutte de sang.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (None stated) most important.

Herald of Record: Margarita Carpintero

Conchobar: The Annals of Ulster (www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T100001A/text749.html), pg. 237, U1201.6 shows Conchobar MacLachlainn dating to 1201.

na Féasóige: Index of Names in Irish Annals: Descriptive Bynames: na Féasóige by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/naFeasoige.shtml.

This name was previously submitted as Conchobar Magennis, but was returned at kingdom level in July 2017:

The name is being returned for conflict with Conchobhar MacInnes (3/2006). The two names are identical in sound despite the variant spellings.
The new submission clears that conflict.

This device originally appeared on the June 2017 AEthelmearc internal letter. While there were no cited conflicts or style issues, the device was pended due to the name return. Kingdoms cannot create holding names.


4: Dorothea Stark Schütz -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2016, via Æthelmearc.

Per chevron gules and azure, a chevron ermine between two castles Or and an ermine argent marked sable maintaining in its mouth a ring argent.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth


5: Finn Marland O'Shannon -New Release of Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1992, via Atlantia.

Azure, a chevron sable semy-de-lys fimbriated between three wolfs heads erased Or

I, ___________________, known in the society as Finn Marland O'Shannon (in the process of changing to Fionn Bewefort) requests the release of two of my badges:

Vair, two towers sable and a wolf statant Or

Azure, a chevron sable semy-de-lys fimbriated between three wolfs heads erased Or

I am aware that release of registration is permanent.


6: Finn Marland O'Shannon -New Release of Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1992, via Atlantia.

Vair, two towers sable and a wolf statant Or

I, ___________________, known in the society as Finn Marland O'Shannon (in the process of changing to Fionn Bewefort) requests the release of two of my badges:

Vair, two towers sable and a wolf statant Or

Azure, a chevron sable semy-de-lys fimbriated between three wolfs heads erased Or

I am aware that release of registration is permanent.


7: Fionn Bewefort -Resub Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in April of 1992, via Atlantia.

Ermine, a sea wolf sejant sable.

Old Item: Finn Marland O'Shannon, to be released.
Old Item: Argent, a sea wolf sejant sable within a bordure indented azure., to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (Finn Beaufort) most important.

Herald of Record: Saiman Tokushou

Previously submitted as Finos Ithakesios, client withdrew the submission from consideration prior to the decision meeting. This is a complete redesign of the name.

Fionn: dated 1209 and 1490, "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien), https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Finn.shtml. Spellings vary between Finn and Fionn depending on time period. Fionn seems to be the nominative form for 1200s-1700s. Pronunciation is the same with either spelling.

Bewefort: Reaney & Wilson, s.n. Beauford. Henry Bewefort 1340-1450. "It is very likely Henry Bewefort in this document is the son of Sir John Beaufort (modern spelling) the founder of the House of Beaufort."

Client originally asked for <Finn Beaufort>, but based on research the consulting herald was able to accomplish has accepted the more period spellings. Client is happy with the period spelling of Bewefort, but requests assistance documenting <Finn> as a spelling for the same time/place, and will accept a change to <Finn> if possible.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth


8: Fionn Bewefort -New Badge

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

Pean, a rhinoceros rampant contourny Or.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth


9: Giuliettada Venezia -New Heraldic Title

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

Firebird Herald

Sound (fire bird) most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

The client would like the title based on the charge pattern for heraldry. Russian firebirds were determined unregisterable as of July 2015 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/11/14-11c.html#2). Given that the primary charge on the client's personal device is a Russian firebird, we are asking if the grandfather clause (NPN1.C.2.g.) is applicable in this case. If it is determined not to be so, we are asking for assistance in locating alternate documentation for this title.

Client was granted the right to a heraldic title by Kameshima Silver Buccle on April 8, 2017 at The Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon in AEthelmearc.


10: Grainne Ruadh -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of February 27, 2017 as submitted.

Per pale Or and sable, two dogs combatant counterchanged sable and argent within a bordure counterchanged.

Old Item: Argent, a horse rampant and a base purpure, to be released.

Herald of Record: Amalue Reinhardt


11: Lucilla Theresa de Courtenay -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 1986, via the East.

(Fieldless) On a mullet argent a lark volant purpure

Herald of Record: Madoc Arundel

The badge takes elements from the client's registered device, Purpure, a lark volant and in chief four mullets in fess argent.


12: Rainald de Rohan -New Name Change & New Badge

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in January of 2015, via Æthelmearc.

Argent, three sinister hands apaumee couped gules.

Old Item: Theodwulf fitz Renaut, to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Row - han) most important.

Herald of Record: Elspeth Anne Roth

Rainald: von Feliitzen, The Pre-conquest personal names of Domesday Book, s.n. Ragnaldr, list <Rainald> and <Rainaldus> as given names found in the Domesday book. Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "An lndex to the 1332 Lay Subsidy Rolls for Lincolnshire, England" (http:/Aruww.ellipsis.cxl-lianalnames/english/surlondon1319.html) s.n. William, includesaWilliam Rainald.

de Rohan: Reaney and Wilson, s.n. Rohan, lists a <AIan de Roham> in 1190 (m instead of n). Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Breton Names from the Late 13th Century" (http:i/www.ellipsis.cx/-liana/namesffrench/latelSthcbreion.html), lists <de Rohan> in 1272. French and English are compatible in Appendix C if dated withln 30 years.

We are aware of the resemblance to the "Bloody Hand of Ulster", which is shown both as a right and as a left hand depending on context. SENA A.6.D. states in part, "Armory that is protected from presumption is protected with the same standards as conflict for SCA-registered armory." Under SENA A.5.E.3., this badge is clear of the Ulster augmentation by SC for substantial change in number of primary charges in a charge group.

In Britain, the major public holiday used to be Guy Fawkes Day... that was celebrated on November 5th with things like bonfires and fireworks... I think that made Halloween seem preferable. The idea of having pumpkins and costumes and parties seemed much more appealing than burning down your neighborhood. -- Lisa Morton
