It is the intent of the College of Heralds of the Middle to register the following items. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

1: Alainne Isabella Sabatier - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Culture (12-13th century Southern France) most important.

Alainne - http://ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/1292paris.pdf [Escutcheon note: URL corrected from submission form]

Sara L. Uckelman's draft translation of the Paris census of 1292

(first page, name page, and bibliography attached)

Isabella - https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/occitan/occitan-given-women.html#alpha

Sabatier - https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Asabatier~%20%2Bbirth_ year%3A1500-1599~ [Escutcheon note: URL of actual record cited in submission documentation is https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FG93-5ZN]

FamilySearch from Historical Records - Record of Marie Sabatier baptized 27 January 1577, daughter of Jean Sabatier and Catherine Dogadosse

From Internal commentary:

Trying to improve the byname documentation:

DRAFT: Bynames in Medieval France by Sara L. Uckelman has:

(http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/frenchbynames.pdf) sn. Sabateir

lo sabatier 1339-40 Périgueux

Sabateir 1380x1385 Saint Flour

Sabater 1380x1385 Saint Flour

Sabateyr 1380x1385 Saint Flour.

Périgueux is in southwestern France, but the examples are still a bit too late (but closer than the familysearch record.)

This name is registerable under the rules. If she truly wants to be of the culture of 12th-13th c. France, it needs a lot of changes:

1. Double given names in French are LATE. Second half of the 16th c. late. She should pick one given name.

2. Alainne is langue d'oil, Isabella is langue d'oc. She has selected the period of the Albigensian Crusade, when the two naming pools were actually at war. There is less than no chance a girl would have a northern French given name and an Occitan middle name. If she wants a langue d'oil version, the same article from which she got Alainne has: Ysabel (86) (i) Ysabel (46) (ii) Ysabiau (30) (iii) Ysabelot (8) (iv) Belon (4) (v) Belot (1) (vi) Isabelot (1) (vii) Ysabelon (1)

3. In her period, I would not expect her to be called the shoemaker unless she herself were the shoemaker (i.e., not her father), and if she were the shoemaker, she should have an article. Also, according to the DMF, the V forms predominated during the period when the name was literal, while the B forms ended up as inherited family names, i.e., we see savetier early and Sab(b)e/atier late. It appears from the examples ffride gave that the B form might be the Occitan norm, which makes some sense. Morlet Picarde has Le Savetier in the 13th c. and La Savetière in the 14th c.

Depending on where she thinks she is from, I think either Alainne la savetiere or Ysabel la savetiere is a fine langue d'oil name. Given ffride's examples, I think Isabella la Sabatiere (lo being a masculine article) is fine for her stated desire of southern France, i.e. the langue d'oc region.

Submittered was emailed asking about preferences. Will comment with any replies.


2: Alisia Craufte - New Name & New Device

Azure, a domestic cat passant and in chief three crescents argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Sound of Alisia) most important.

Alisia is found in "Yorkshire Given Names from 1379" by Talan Gwynek (Brian M. Scott) as a feminine given name as a variant of Alicia. This dates this spelling to 1379. (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/yorkshire.html#yorkf)

Craufte is found in MED s.v. craft, (n.(1)). as a middle English spelling of the word "craft". The name was used as a byname as documented in Reaney and Wilson s.n. 'Craft'. R & W have the name in the modern spelling in 1283. If the College of Arms deems the spelling 'Alisia' to be unregisterable, client will accept 'Alicia'


3: Amadeus Emmanuel - New Name

Spelling (Amadeus) most important.

Amadeus Von Roll, male, christened 1574, Basel, Basel-Stadt, Switzerland. Batch no. C73996-2

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FV89-D4Y)

Emanuel Stehelin, male, christened 1574, Basel, Basel-Stadt, Switzerland. Batch no. C92753-3

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FV8L-9MZ)

SENA Appendix A for French and German note that unmarked patronymics require no further documentation for either language.

Hence, a wholly Swiss "Amadeus Emanuel" (with a single -m-) would be a fine name.

If the submitter prefers two mm's, there is also:

Emmanuel Boulonger, male, christened 1574, Frankenthal, Rhineland-Palatinate, Bavaria. Batch no. J98429-2

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NDNT-PYG)


4: 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".


5: 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 contourny regardant within 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.


6: Ayşe al-Rumi - New Name & New Device

Azure, semy of annulets, and an estoile argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Ays,e - Sixteenth-Century Turkish Names, Ursula Whitcher, Women's Names, Muslim Names: Entry: Ays,e https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ursula/ottoman/feminine.html

al-Rumi - found in "Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices", by Da'ud ibn Auda http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/arabic-naming2.htm lists <al-Rumi> [of Rome (Constantinople)]. This is listed as a Masculine Cognomen, the article only has one feminine one listed.

The construction of given name + al-[adjectival form of place name] is found in App. A of SENA. The combination of Arabic and Turkish is found in App. C of SENA.

Allows adding/deleting a word like "de" or "the" or changing language when the change is small

From commentary: SENA Appendix C allows combining Arabic and Turkish, but only 1100-1600. Ursula has documented the primary name in that period. al-Rūmī can be documented to that time period; see below for a snippet from the Encyclopaedia of Islam. The feminine form would be expected to be al-Rūmīyya.

Submitted as <Ays,e al-Rumi>. Changed so that the cedilla is on the s.

7: Ayşe al-Rumi - New Badge

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

(Fieldless) A book argent enflamed charged with a flame proper


8: Beatrix de Lugano - New Name & New Device

Or, a squirrel sejant erect gules maintaining a sheaf of arrows sable, a chief vairy Or and gules

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (Keep given name as close as possible) most important.

This is a Latinized Italian name from Switzerland, in the form given name + locative.

'Beatrix' is found in "14th-15th C Given Names in Latin from Switzerland" by Sara L. Uckelman known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael as the Latin form of a feminine given name, dated to between 1375 and 1468. The author lists four instances of this name in this spelling. (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/swiss/villeneuve.html)

'de' is the Latin preposition 'of, from', as found in SENA Appendix A.

Luganus is found in Latinized form as genitive Lugani in the 15th century book _Italia Illustrata_ (https://books.google.com/books?id=kttXsdZlUPQC). Lugano is the Latin ablative form, following the preposition "de". Lugano is also plausible as the vernacular form of Latinized Luganus.

From commentary:

Additional docs for Latin Beatrix - DMNES shows the name dated to 1265x1339 Beatrix (nom) BBC-Berg 91, Biatrix (nom) ibid. 355… 1310 Beatrix (nom) MonRav-2 CCCL; 1521 Beatrix (nom) VitAs2 III; 1522x1532 Beatrix (nom) DSF p. 52, 34 in Italy. In Switzerland it's dated to 14thCx1478 Beatrisia (nom) Ob-SPVn (37), Beatrix (nom) ibid. (41). http://dmnes.org/name/Beatrice

Additional docs for `de Lugano', Googlebook "Codice Diplomatico Istriano" vol. IV by Dr. Pietro Kandler, 1850, "Anno 1511. 15 Gennaro - Trieste.", no page# shows in Latin, Abraham de Lugano. See image. This discusses the Jew Abramo di Lugano's passport giving him freedom to come and go from Trieste to Venice on business. https://books.google.com/books?id=tjI_AAAAcAAJ

Original emblazon the vairy was gules and Or which put the Or on the bottom of the chief bordering the Or field , which is reason for return. With the permission of the submitter it has been recolored to solve that problem.


9: Bertrande Fresneau - New Badge

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

(Fieldless) On a fleur-de-lys a die gules marked Or


10: Böjei Temür - New Device

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

Azure, in bend two birds volant in annulo Or


11: 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.

This Barony is being formed from the merger of two nearby groups.

St. Carol on the Moor, College of

This branch-name was registered in October of 1982 (via the Middle).

The following device associated with this name was registered in July of 1983 (via the Middle):

Or, a tower sable environed of in chief three bells, one and two, azure and in base a laurel wreath vert.

Würm Wald, Barony of This branch-name was registered in July of 1980 (via the Middle).

The following device associated with this name was registered in July of 1980 (via the Middle):

Argent, a wyvern gules spiraling down a tree eradicated and on a chief urdy sable a laurel wreath argent.

The following badge associated with this name was registered in February of 1988 (via the Middle):

Argent, goutty de sang, a fess dancetty sable between two sinister feet, reversed and couped, gules.

Caer Gwynt does desire to retain the old heraldry as "Ancient Arms".

From Commentary:

Dai Gerdwr at 2017-10-03 14:40:30

Upon further review...

The form "Caer Gwynt" is not proper Welsh, as "caer" is a feminine noun and "gwynt" as a direct adjective would mutate to "wynt"

Which produces a problem, as Caerwynt is the Welsh name for Winchester, England. While some English sources spell it "Caerwent", Caerwynt is the proper Welsh spelling and was used in period:

"Ac yn|y vrỽydyr honno y delit iarll caerỽynt a iarll henfford. a robert ap gỽallter."

"In that battle the earl of Winchester and the earl of Hereford, and Robert Fitz Walter were taken"

Brut y Twysygion Peniarth ms 18 (http://www.rhyddiaithganoloesol.caerdydd.ac.uk/en/ms-page.php?ms=Pen18&page=51r&l=c0l12, translation from http://www.maryjones.us/ctexts/brut_y_tywysogion.html)

The question is whether Winchester is protected in its Welsh form under http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#NPN4D and if not if the grammatical change is required and acceptable.

Dai Gerdwr at 2017-10-03 16:39:07

The original documentation that was not included in the summary refers to Sir Henry Spelman's work Icenia, ca 1620-1641. Sir Henry refers to a spelling of "Caer Guynt" from a source listed as Luhdyus referring to a possible Icenii capital in Norwich.

12: Caryn of Cynnabar - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning ((legal) Caryn who lives in Cynnabar) most important.

Caryn is the submitters legal first name, as shown on her Michigan Driver's License witnessed by Rhiannon Morgaine and Brunissende.

of Cynnabar - a Barony registered via Drachenwald in June 2017. (The attribution to Drachenwald rather than the Middle Kingdom is probably a typo in the Ordinary and Armorial.) Cynnabar, Barony of This branch-name was registered in June of 2017 (via Drachenwald). This was an update from Cynnabar, Shire of, registered in May of 1983 (via the Middle).


13: Christian Atzinger - Resub Device

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

Gules, a goat clymant argent collared around the waist sable and in canton a Catherine's wheel argent.

The original submission was on the Middle ILoI - 2016-12-30. It was returned for conflict with Consider Oda Wlslagre dicta Widoeghe The following device associated with this name was registered in July of 2013 (via Atlantia): Gules, a musimon rampant argent spotted sable and in chief two wool combs fesswise Or.

The addition of the Catherine's wheel clears the previous conflict.


14: Cynnabar, Barony of - New Badge

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

(Fieldless) An elephant proper statant maintaining a tower argent

The Crayola grey marker colored elephant of the original emblazon looked sable. Master Kryss recolored it and the submitter approved the new emblazon.

16: Deirdre Makkyneth - New Name & New Device

Per saltire vert and purpure, in pale two trees blasted and eradicated and in fess two trisklions of spirals argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (some form of Deirdre Mackenzie) most important.

Deirdre: Precedent allows for registration of Deirdre as a 12th century Gaelic name:

"Deirdre Scot. Name.

There has of late been a fair amount of discussion of whether the name Deirdre should be declared registerable as a historically attested name. While we have found no historical examples of the spelling Deirdre, we do have the Latin form Derder. Effrick neyn Kennyeoch, in a post to scahrlds@listserv.aol.com, noted:

I found Balfour's Scots Peerage, which, oh joy of joys, is a wonderful book which cites primary sources for its data, including, for <Derdere>: Charles Rogers, ed. Chartulary of the Cistercian Priory of Coldstream with Relative Documents. London: The Grampian Club, 1879. And, even better, this book Stanford does have (on microfilm) *and* it includes transcriptions of the original Latin texts of the medieval charters, along with English abstracts. Four of these charters name our heroine, but, very interestingly, three of them call her <Derder> (one of them twice), while only one calls her <Derdere>. Further, these three charters are the ones issued by her husband (2) and her son (1), while the one that calls her <Derdere> was issued by the Bishop of St. Andrews. Another interesting discovery is that in all four charters, her name appears to be being used in the nominative case:

Page 6, charter no. 8:

... quod sponsa mea Derder dedit ... (... that my spouse Derder has given ...)

Page 8, charter no. 11:

... quod Derder Comitissa sponsa mea dedit ... (... that Derder Countess my spouse has given...) ... Testibus Derder Comitissa . Waldef filius comitis . Lambekin dapifer . Ernulfo de Suinton . Roberto le Norreis . Adam filio Meldredis . et aliis .

Page 18, charter no. 26:

... quas Derder Comitissa mater mea eiis dedit et Cospatricius comes pater meus carta sua confirmauit ...

The same post notes that the form Deirdre is attested from literature as both a Middle and Early Modern Irish spelling for this name. Given this combination of evidence, we must conclude that Deirdre is a rare name, but one occasionally used in Gaelic speaking cultures at least in the 12th C. Therefore, we are declaring that Deirdre is no longer SCA-compatible; instead it is registerable as a normalized attested 12th C Gaelic name." [8/2006 LoAR via AEthelmearc]

Evidence for the use of this form as a literary name in the Middle Ages may be found in Josh Mittleman, "Concerning the Name Deirdre" http://medievalscotland.org/problem/names/deirdre.shtml

Makkyneth: Black, Surnames of Scotland, s.n. MacKenzie dates the submitted form to 1264.

From commentary:

<Dierdre> is found in the August 2006 LoAR: "Deirdre is a rare name, but one occasionally used in Gaelic speaking cultures at least in the 12th C. Therefore, we are declaring that Deirdre is no longer SCA-compatible; instead it is registerable as a normalized attested 12th C Gaelic name." [Dierdre Scott 08/2006 LoAR A-Aethelmearc]

In this case, we explicitly upheld the 2006 precedent in 2010, and subsequently accepted Deirdre as a Middle Irish Gaelic form in 2011, 2014, and 2016. We used e-DIL to doc it (http://www.dil.ie/search?q=deirdre).

Spirals of triskelions are a step from period practice but they are the only one.


17: Eyvinda Gerðardóttir - New Name & New Device

Vert, a unicorn's head erased argent between five four-leaved clovers crosswise three and two Or

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Old Norse) most important.
Culture (Old Norse) most important.

Eyvinda (Old Icelandic) Feminized form of Eyvindr (Old Icelandic). The masculine form is found in DMNES (http://dmnes.org/name/Eyvind) and in Geirr Bassi. The feminization pattern is based on Icelandic Grammar found in Cleasby-Vigfusson.

Gerðardóttir (Old Norse) Patronymic formed from Gerðr (Old Norse) found in Geirr Bassi. Patronymic

constructed from the genitive as per Geirr Bassi.

There was some question as to whether the Norse feminize names by adding an -a on the end. It is being sent on for further commentary.


18: Fulke of Rutland - New Name & New Device

19: Gogan ap Gryffry - New Name & New Device

Pily bendy Or and sable, a dragon's head cabossed vomiting flames gules, orbed Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.

'Gogan' is found as a masculine name dated to 1292-3 in "A Simple Guide to Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn. (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welsh13.html) s.n. Gwogan 'ap'

20: Guenhwyvar MacEwen - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1991, via the Middle.

Azure, issuant from a trimount couped Or a demi-ferret argent, and in chief two mullets of eight points Or

This is a resubmission of a device returned by Laurel in October 1997.

[October 1997 LoAR, R-Middle]

Guenhwyvar MacEwen. Device. Azure, issuant from a trimount couped vert a demi ferret, in chief two mullets argent.

This was submitted based on an 11/93 Laurel precedent permitting vert trimounts on azure fields. However, a trimount couped is sufficiently different from a regular trimount that it is not automatically included under that precedent. Furthermore, this submission contains a demi­animal issuant from the mount, which is relatively infrequent, bringing this submission even farther from the allowed format. Barring evidence of this motive being used throughout Europe, we must return this submission.

The redesign clears the reason(s) for return.


21: Gunnarr Bogsveigir - New Name & New Device

22: Hrothgar Bjolfsson - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

This name combines an Old English given name and Norse byname; this lingual mix is permissible under SENA Appendix C.

Hrothgar: <Hroðgar> appears in St. Gabriel Report number 2821, footnote number 5: http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2821+0

23: Illiton, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1987, via the Middle.

Award of the Otter of Illiton

Award of the Otter is an award name based on a heraldic charge.

The Middle English Dictionary s.v. oter (n.) states that the modern name was used in Middle English. The submitted spelling is among the header forms.

Armory with otters as charges has been registered multiple times in the SCA, most recently: Ottarr Hallbjarnarson. The following device associated with this name was registered in June of 2017 (via the Outlands): Azure, an otter sejant erect contourny guardant argent maintaining an axe, blade to sinister, a chief embattled Or.

If registered, this name should be associated with the barony's submitted badge Barry wavy of eight argent and azure an otter passant guardant to sinister gules.

Submitted as <Award of the Otter>. There was a conflict with the household name Ottarstead registered to Ottar Eriksson in July of 1989 (via the East). The submitting Baron gave permission to add "of Illiton" to the award name if needed to clear conflict.


24: Illiton, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1987, via the Middle.

Award of the Salmon of Illiton

Award of the Salmon is an order name based on a heraldic charge. The Middle English Dictionary s.v. sā̆mǒun (n.) states that the modern spelling is a form found in Middle English: salmon is among the header forms. Armory with salmons have been registered multiple times, most recently: Simon Fisc. The following device associated with this name was registered in June of 2017 (via An Tir): Azure, a salmon attired with an elk's antlers and on a chief wavy Or three pheons inverted gules.

If registered this name should be associated with the barony's submitted badge Barry wavy of eight argent and azure a salmon contourny gules.

Submitted as <Award of the Salmon>. When the Baron gave permission for the phrase "of Illiton" to be added to the submitted award names if needed he asked that if it was needed for one to add it to all the submitted award names. Since there is another award name with a conflict it has been added to all of them.


25: Illiton, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1987, via the Middle.

Award of the Turtle of Illiton

Award of the Turtle is an award name based on a heraldic charge. The Middle English Dictionary s.v. turtel (n.) states that the modern spelling was used in Middle English; this is among the header forms. Armory with turtles as charges has been registered multiple times in the SCA. For a recent example: Kara Ivarsdottir. The following device associated with this name was registered in February of 2013 (via AEthelmearc): Vert, on a lozenge argent a turtle vert.

If this name is registered it should be associated with the barony's submitted badge Barry wavy of eight argent and azure a turtle tergiant fesswise to sinister gules.

Submitted as <Award of the Turtle>. As submitted there is a possible conflict with the household name Voice of the Turtle [February 1975 LoAR, A-West]. Adding "of Illiton" clears this. The submitting Baron gave permission to add "of Illiton" to the award name if needed to clear conflict. When the Baron gave permission for the phrase "of Illiton" to be added to the submitted award names if needed he asked that if it was needed for one to add it to all the submitted award names so even if Voice of the Turtle is not a conflict since there is another award that need it to clear conflict.


26: Illiton, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1987, via the Middle.

Order of the Vessel of Illiton

Order of the Vessel is an order name based on a charge name. The Middle English Dictionary s.v. vessel, n. 1 states that this spelling was used in Middle English. The word can indicate either a small portable container (sense 1) or a ship (sense 4).

One may also construct Vessell as a late period English surname used as a given name. The MED s.v. vessel, n.1 (sense 6) dates Iohannes de la Uesselle to c. 1210, and Reaney and Wilson s.n. Vesselo dates le Vesseler to 1296. Later English surnames often drop the prepositions, and Vessel may be interpolated from Uesselle and Vesseler.

If the name must be changed, the submitter prefers a reference to a drinking vessel.

If registered, this name should be associated with the following badge, registered in June of 2017 (via the Middle): (Fieldless) On a goblet Or a lymphad proper, sails furled argent.

Submitted as <Order of the Vessel>. When the Baron gave permission for the phrase "of Illiton" to be added to the submitted award names if needed he asked that if it was needed for one to add it to all the submitted award names. Since there is another award name with a conflict it has been added to all of them.


27: 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.

------

This was colored with Crayola markers and appears azure on some monitors. (One of mine it looks azure and the other purpure.)


28: Karayil of Chennai - New Badge

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in December of 2003, via the Middle.

Vert, on a fess argent three triskelions of spirals sable

Old Item: Elisaveta Izmaragd Ivanova, to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.

Katrín: Per Geirr Bassi p. 12

Grimsdottir: Grimr: Per Geirr Bassi, p. 10. Formation of patronymic by genitive + dottir attested on p. 6.

See also Grimsdǫttir on p. 17.

Allows adding/deleting a word like "de" or "the" or changing language when the change is small

Triskelions of spirals are a step from period practice but it is the only one.


30: Kveldulfr Skallagrimsson at 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 in her plenitude 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).

Form commentary:

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-09-20 06:17:09

The July 2015 LoAR notes, along with other information about the name, sn. Kveldúlfr Valbrandsson:

(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/07/15-07lar.html#240)

Submitted as Kveldúlf Valbrandsson... The expected Old Norse form of the given name is Kveldúlfr.

Skalla-, prepended byname, Geirr Bassi p. 27

Grímr, masculine name, Bassi p. 10.

The locative byname appears in Place-Names in Landnámabók (Incomplete) by Brian M. Scott, on the internet archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20140812202611/http://my.stratos.net/~bmscott/Landnamabok_Place-Names.html

sn. Borg

OIc. borg 'a small, dome-shaped hill' (and other senses).

Locative Byname: at Borg.

Which gets us "Kveldúlfr Skallagrímsson at Borg" or "Kveldulfr Skallagrimsson at Borg."

I'm not entirely sure if the Lingua Anglica form would be "at Borg" or "of Borg" though.

Submitted as <Kveldulf Skallagrimsson of Borg> it has been changed to the expected Old Norse spelling without accents as that is closest to what was submitted.

32: Logan mac Artúir - Resub Device

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

Argent, a chevron checky Or and azure between two wolverines statant respectant azure marked Or and a fleur-de-lys azure

This is a resubmission for a Laurel return from July 2016.

[July 2016 LoAR, R-Middle]

Logan mac Artúir. Device. Argent, a chevron checky Or and azure between two wolverines passant respectant and a fleur-de-lys azure.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters couldn't identify the charges in chief as wolverines. The lack of internal details and the fact that wolverines have really no identifying characteristic to differentiate them from bears is likely the source of the problem.

On resubmission, please advise the submitter to draw the lower charge somewhat larger.

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

Vert, a polypus and bordure argent.

Old Item: Gyronny Or and gules, a polypus pean., to be released.

The original submission, which featured a 4-limbed polypus, was returned in July 2017 for conflict with Geoffrey d'Ayr of Montalban: Azure, a polypus argent. (March of 2012 via the East) 1 DC for changes to the field. The four limbs would also have been cause for return.

This 8-limbed depiction should clear the issue for return.

Some said they were bothered by a resemblance to Cthulhu. Since he who waits dreaming in his house at R'lyeh is said to have a head resembling an octopus it is not surprising. One commenter even showed the wide variety of octopus like depictions used for the Great Old One. Since a polypus is a octopus it should resemble one.

48: Shadowed Stars, Barony of - New Appeal of Kingdom Return of Order Name

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

Award of Perseus of Shadowed Stars

The award name was rejected with the reasoning that Perseus was not a god, and therefore cannot have an award named after him. The submitter has enclosed evidence that Perseus was worshipped as a god in his cult of Tarsus in hopes that you will reconsider the name.

The Origins of the Mithraic Mysteries: Cosmology & Salvation in the Ancient World by David Ulansey.

Page 41

... of Mithraism to the region of Cilicia is the fact that Cilicia -- and in particular its

capital city of Tarsus -- was the home of a deeply rooted cult of the hero Perseus.

(and other citations from the book in DOCS).

There's also a pattern of using the Latin forms of names of classical heroes for ordinary people born in late-period England. Some examples from the IGI include: Hercules Trevithicke in 1569 (batch C05177-1), Jason Barton in 1571 (batch C01051-1), Theseus Sangewyn in 1601 (batch C05249-1), and Achilles Collimor in 1592 (batch C05121-1). Thus, this award should also be registrable using the pattern of orders named after people.

Tirumaladevi: Academy of Saint Gabriel Heather Rose Jones (Tangwystyl) Women's Names from (Mostly) 16th Century Inscriptions at Tirupati, India)copyright 1999

https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/india/tirupati_f.html Tirumaladevi

(in "devi" the e and i are marked long) ca.1509

"of" is the standard lingua Anglicana locative form

Tirupati: The same source says: "Tirupati is a city of southeast Andhra Pradesh state southern India about 67 miles NW of Madras. It is the site of a major Hindu shrine." It clearly existed in the 16th century when these inscriptions were made there. I do not find clear examples of bynames whose meanings are known in this source. I suggested using a placename from this source, with the English locative. The client really wants the first name (which she had found in the source herself; she is open to any needed changes in the byname. She would be happy to have the locative form in the appropriate Indian language if available.

From Internal commentary:

Adelaide de Beaumont at 2017-10-10 17:24:59

Tirumala Devi, crowned empress in 1509, was empress of the Vijayanagara Empire, in which Tirupati was one of the holiest cities. Devi means 'goddess' but turns up attached to the names of Indian women known for their beauty with the sense 'heavenly creature'. Tiru is an avatar of the goddess Lakshmi. (It's impossible to apply the same rules for presumption on Indian names, because they don't think that way. If you can work out a way to name yourself kingkingking or godgodgod, you do it.) Mala is a hindi rosary, so the compound tirumala is 'sacred to Lakshmi'. Tirupat(h)i is 'husband of Lakshmi'.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirumala_Devi

She was apparently a patroness of the Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala/Tirupati (Tirumala is a small hilltop town where the temple is located, in the district of Tirupati), such that gifts to the temple were recorded in 1514, as was a personal visit in 1518 on the occasion of the birth of her son.

Tirumala Devi might be a unique enough name to be a problem in its own right; it was a quick Google. I would be less leery if she picked another town. Puri was a sacred city and site of pilgrimage in period that is well outside the borders of the Vijayanagara Empire. Tirumala Devi of Puri would make me twitch less.

Re: Indian locatives. The problem, as always, is that we require two name elements, and Indian naming tends to squash them all into one. In this case, Tirumala Devi usually _IS_ recorded with a break, so that is two elements. It just remains to determine whether the use of Tirumala Devi is presumptuous, and I think it probably is, as there are still-existing places named for her, which tends to be one of our bench marks:

The suburb of Tirumala-devi pattana (around the present Sannakki Veerabhadra temple in Hospet) was laid out during the reign of Krishnadevaraya in honour of Tirumala Devi.

Verghese, Anila (1995). Religious traditions at Vijayanagara : as revealed through its monuments (1. publ. ed.). New Delhi: Manohar. p. 73.

Indians also LOVE changing their names to reflect changes in their life, status, work, etc., so even the concept of a name you carry all your life is not a standard one. Tirumala Devi's daughter "Tirumalamba married Araviti Ranga's son, Ramaraya who, after the marriage, came to be known as Aliya Rama Raya." Indian naming is fraught.

I think Tirumala is fine as a name element. There are other stand-alone elements that form part of the names in that article that I think could be used as a second element that wouldn't conflict with the empress. If the submitter wants to work with me, I'd be happy to help.

Adelaide de Beaumont at 2017-10-10 17:48:46

The real no-brainer, which is all over that list, is amman, which either forms a part or is a hyphenated attachment to almost half of the names. It means roughly 'faithful' and is another devotional element. Tirumala Amman is a broken-out form of what appears as Tirumalamman, 1517, with the note "also three other women of this name". I would like to float the idea that though it would certainly be pronounced (and written, obviously) as tee-roo-mah-la-mahn, it is actually three name elements already, and requiring still a fourth element just to register the name is ridiculous.

I contacted the submitter. She did not like the suggested <Tirumala Amman>. She would be fine with <Tirumala Devi> or <Tirumala Devi of Puri>/<Tirumaladevi of Puri> if the submitted is not possible and one of those is.

57: 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.

From Commentary:

Dai Gerdwr at 2017-09-21 12:12:40

I could not find a primary source referenced in this particular book, but at https://www.forgottenbooks.com/en/download/StudiStorici_10407578.pdf Crivellucci, Amedeo, "Studi Storici" (Historical Studies) 1897 - a later work that seems to be expanding the earlier Affo text - I found reference to Zilio lo Bouati all'anno 1189 , cronaca del Del Giudice, ms. parm. 789 (Chronicle of Del Giudice, 1189). This seems to be more evidence that del Giudice is a period spelling, though we do not have the original Chronicle.
