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

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

Sainte 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"

Image #5 is from the Toponymie Généale de la France, Volume 3. Please see this link:

https://books.google.com.au/books?id=AdAYRLukKUcC&pg=PA1397&lpg=PA1397&dq=Negre%27s+Toponymie+g%C3%A 9n%C3%A9rale+de+la+France&source=bl&ots=fjluERh7Nu&sig=vXW_6DJ484vHUWmNOe7TWArNvt0&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0 ahUKEwjk5v-3kYvVAhWDkJQKHdMACSkQ6AEIUDAI#v=onepage&q&f=true

Note: There was a good deal of discussion as to the last name <Saint Clare> and if it, <Saint> needed to be in feminine form. We were able to find a Saint Clare in period (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/04004a.htm), and in Kingdom we chose to gender the name.

Please see the comments from Adelaide in the commentary

http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=4732#5

Adelaide de Beaumont at 2017-09-25 14:14:29

"Therefore, the vernacular French form... is likely de Saint Clare"

Except it is absolutely not. He appears in the Ordinary of saints in 1263 as Clarus, and I find vernacular forms Saint Cler early (13th-14th c.) and Saint Clair in late period. The Église Saint-Clair in Réguiny, la chapelle St. Clair in La Cathédrale de Nantes, where Clarus was the first bishop, etc. If she wants a French vernacular spelling, it is Saint Cler/Clair depending on her period. Even for the common word, I can support clair, claire, cler, clere, cliere, and cleire from the DMF, but not clare (which looks English to me). The E forms (cler, clere) hugely predominate until about 1450 when the shift to clair gets traction.

Judith de Saint Clare is a plausible English name, but if she wants to be French, I believe Judith de Saint Clair is the better spelling. http://www.histoireetspiritualite.com/religions-fois-philosophie/christianisme/saints-bienheureux/C/ saint-cler.html

The problem with buying Saint Clare as even a maybe French form is that the terminal E in Clare is generally a feminine marker, while Saint is the masculine form. A Sainte Clare would not shock me for one of the many female saints Clare/Clara, though I would still expect Sainte Claire as a more likely French spelling. Note neither Saint Cler nor Saint Clair bears the terminal E.

Device Note: in commentary it was noted that the alternating wavy rays needed to be larger, and hold similar weight to the straight rays. The art has been updated with the submitters approval to address this issue.

6: Kolomna Krum - New Name

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

Note: This was changed in Kingdom based on internal commentary. It was noted that the example with <Kolomna> listed it before the given name, and the author of the article indicates, in the case of an unaltered place name, it is best to use this form as it was found in period, so we have switched the given and byname.


7: Laurel - New Other

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

Doge

Doge is an Italian title used in the independent republics. It has been requested that this title be considered for addition to the Alternate Title list for Peers.

Doge is found on page 1123 of Medieval Italy: An Encyclopedia

By Christopher Kleinhenz accessed using Google Books on Septemeber 15, 2015. The entry may be viewed here: https://books.google.com/books?id=E2CTAgAAQBAJ&pg=PT1153&lpg=PT1153&dq=Doge+leader+italy&source=bl&o ts=ZKvS8RUQLD&sig=d9cMtdLu0ymy1E90FPDrqwNqO1w&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjZquXH6afWAhWqiVQKHZCaBGU4ChDoA Qg5MAU#v=onepage&q=Doge%20leader%20italy&f=false

The Doge was an elected leader and not a noble by birth or grant of title. The Doge ruled the independent state, but with many restrictions that a noble ruler would not have. They were subject to rules imposed by councils and could not leave the state for any reason. It is the fact that they were a civil leader and not a noble by birth that distinguishes the Doge from being equivalent to a Duke or other noble.

"Additionally, <skarfr> was incuse in 10th c. Iceland as a byname, probably meaning "cormorant", a type of water bird [3]."

In the July 2016 LoAR sn. StigR Arngeirsson

(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."


14: Skeggi berbeinn Sebbason ins sterka - New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and gules, a saltire voided Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (son of Sebbi the strong) most important.

Markland Medieval Militia, 1977; p 214 Lena Peterson, Nordesktrunnamnslexicokon, (Dictionsry of names from Old Norse Runic Inscriptions). Sprak-och folkminnes-institutet (Institute for Dialectology, Onomastics and Folklore Research). https://aasikter.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/runlexikon.prf. Accessed 08/14/2017 p 178

berbeinn - "bare-leg". Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. The Old Norse Name. Studia Marklandica i. Olney, MD. Markland Medieval Militia, 1977; p 20

Sebbason - "son of Sebbi". Cleasby, Richard and Guobrandr Vigfussion, An Icelandic-English Dictionary 2nd ed. Oxford:Clarendon. 1957; xxxiv s.v. "Pet names" and P 66 s.v. bjorn

inn sterki - "strong, powerful". Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. The Old Norse Name. Studia Marklandica i. Olney, MD. Markland Medieval Militia, 1977; p 28

Note: this item was changed at Kingdom from <Skeggi berbeinn Sebbason inn sterki> to <..ins sterka> to reflect the meaning the submitter was attempting, and based on ffride's commentary:

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.
