Northshield LoI dated 2017-10-31

Greetings unto Juliana Laurel, Alys Pellicane, Cormac Wreath, and the various members of the College of Arms, greetings from Merideth NiShionniach, Polaris Herald of Northshield, and her deputy Mira Fastova, Keythong Herald of Northshield.

What follows is the October 2017 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of Northshield. We are requesting registration for these items.

We would like to thank all of the heralds, from within Kingdom and without, who contributed comments on OSCAR for the Northshield August Internal Letter of Intent. I am particularly grateful for the contributions of Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Beatrice Domenici della Campana, Magnus von Lübeck, Gawain of Miskbridge, Iago ab Adam, Heledd of Mathrafal, Basil Dragonstrike, and Adelaide de Beaumont.

1: Eyricke Rycard - New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister embattled gules and Or, a chamfron Or and a tai-chi sable and argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.

All elements are sourced from Family Search

Eyricke: Elizabeth <Eyricke>, Female, Christening Date 25 Jan 1578, Place LEICESTER,ENGLAND, Batch Number C03462-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NPCG-4XJ)

Rycard: Elyzabeth <Rycard>, Female, Christening Date 25 Nov 1570, Place Kent, England, Batch Number C01966-9 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NNLY-X7P)

Late 16th c surname used as a given name.

Kingdom Commentary Notes: It was noted that

"Per http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2011/03/11-03lar.html, s.n. An Tir, Kingdom of, second item, "The use of tai-ch'i, as non-European artistic motifs, are a step from period practice." Comparing to that badge, at https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=15720, this emblazon would need a fesswise. However, this is flatly contradicted by the blazon of Geoffrey Arkwright's device, Dec 2002, first image below, from http://atensubmissions.nexiliscom.com/8-2002iloi.shtml, where a ta-chi divided per pale was blazoned a tai-chi fesswise reversed proper ... and by http://mistholme.com/dictionary/roundel/ where "a roundel per fess embowed-counterembowed argent and sable, charged with two counterchanged roundels" is stated to be the Society default." (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=79638)

There appear to be some contradictions regarding the blazon of a tai-chi and I leave it to Laurel to resolve them.


2: Iohannes Glenfidanus - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1999, via the Middle.

(Fieldless) A scorpion azure bezanty

Kingdom Commentary Note: It was noted that the recent precedent at http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/04/17-04lar.html#140, Carloman de le Mer, establishes a DC between scorpions and lobsters and the earlier http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2007/02/07-02lar.html s.n. Lucas Colbert gives "a CD between a crab and the standard SCA-depiction of a scorpion with its curved tail". (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=79656)

7: Valdís Brýningsdóttir - New Name & New Device

Per saltire argent and vert, a punner within a four-lobed quadrate cornice counterchanged

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.
Language most important.

Valdís is an Old Norse feminine given name found on page 15 of GB

Brýningsdóttir is an Old Norse patronymic constructed from <Brýningr>, as found on The Viking Answer Lady quoting Fellows-Jensen page 67 s.n. Brýningr "Son of Brýni; son of Brúnn." Formed by adding the second element -ing to the by-name Brýnion and following the patronymic formation pattern for men's names ending in -r on page 17 of GB.

Kingdom Commentary Notes: It was noted that:

"Information not found at https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=17674 for Cormac Mór, the defining instance, with two loops where the Wappenbook's "Rammbock" has three, or at https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=65752 for Violet Hughes: The OED s.v. punner, n.2, "A tool for punning or ramming something down, esp. for ramming earth around the base of a post, etc., or for ramming down paving stones." My guess is that the first example applies.

The etymology connects "pun" to "pound"." (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=79640)
