Outlands LoI dated 2017-11-18

From the Office of Rampart Herald

THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)

rampart@outlandsheralds.org

Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald send her greetings.

What follows is the November 2017 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor, ffride wlffsdotter, Christian Jorgensen af Hilsonger, Magnus von Lübeck, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Iago ab Adam, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute to internal commentary on OSCAR.

It is my intent to register this November the following items from the Outlands' College of Heralds.

1: Bryngerðr Þiðreksdóttir - New Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Old Item: Bryngerðr of Unser Hafen, to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (900 Danish/Viking) most important.
Culture (900 Danish/Viking) most important.

Bryngerðr - http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html

Þiðrekr - which appears in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name at p. 16.

dóttir- http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html

The previous submission, Bryngerðr Deotrichstochter, was returned on the June 2017 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/06/17-06lar.html#Outlands_returns17) with the following: {Unfortunately, for multiple reasons, this name is not registerable as submitted. First, the Letter of Intent indicated that Deotrich was the registered name of the submitter's father. However, no attestation or supporting evidence was provided for this assertion. Therefore, Deotrich needed to be documented, rather than relying on the prior registration by the submitter's father. Second, the pattern of appending -tochter to a father's name in the genitive case to create a patronymic does not appear in Appendix A for any language. Therefore, this pattern needed to be documented. It was not. Fortunately, at the Pelican decision meeting, Ælfwynn Leoflaede dohtor documented tochter as a High German patronymic marker, meaning "daughter," found as early as the 13th century. The Letter of Intent documented Deotrich as a name appearing in a 9th century Latin document in a Moravian codex. In that era, the languages spoken in Moravia were primarily Slavic. Indeed, most of the other names found in the cited document are clearly Slavic in origin. Based on the submitted documentation, therefore, Deotrich must be treated as a North Slavic name. Because a name phrase must be in a single language, the North Slavic Deotrich cannot be combined with the High German marker totcher. In addition, North Slavic elements cannot be combined with an Old Norse given name per Appendix C. As we are unable to construct a byname that indicates that the submitter is the daughter of Deotrich, we are forced to return the name. For a possible resubmission, the submitter might be interested to know that the Old Norse equivalent of Deotrich or Dietrich was Þiðrekr, which appears in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name at p. 16. This name yields the Old Norse patronymic Þiðreksdóttir, which is compatible with the given name Bryngerðr. Her device is registered under the holding name Bryngerðr of Unser Hafen.}

The submission was originally submitted to Kingdom as a Name Resubmission but Kingdom updated it to a Change of Holding Name.


2: Donovan the Drummer - New Name & New Device

Per pale gules and sable, on a chief rayonny argent three decrescents sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

Donovan - submitter's legal first name, DL submitted

the Drummer - his father is registered as Sylvanus the Drummer, [April 1991 via the Outlands], Letter of Attesting to Legal Relationship for Grandfather Clause submitted.

Additional Documentation provided by ffride wlffsdotter:

Robertus Donovan, male, christened 1584, England. Batch no. C01992-7 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NN57-M4S)

The September 2012 LoAR cover letter notes: "In general, family names documented in sixteenth century England may be used to create given names, even if they are of Scottish or Gaelic origin." (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5)

R&W sn. Taberer Peter le Taburur 1279 Bernard le Taborer 1280 A derivative of ME tab(e)re 'to play on the tabor' or from OFr tabur, tabour 'tabour'; 'one who plays the tabor, a drummer'

sn. Taberner Robert le Taburner 1301 A derivative of ME tabourne or OFr tabourner 'to drum'. 'Drummer.'

The Lingua Anglica form of "le Taborer" and variants would be "the Drummer."

The device was conflict checked on the ILoI by Green Anchor. No conflicts were found.


3: Graye Drache - New Name & New Device

Argent, a demi-dragon gules issuant from a mount sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Meaning most important.

[Graye] - Dated to 1636 as provided in "Given names from Parish Marriage, Registers of Northumberland and Durham 1530-1830" (galbithink.org/names/engb1800.htm)

[Drache] - [R&W] Cites the heading "Drake, Drakes, Drakers" on page 141, for Leuin Drache in 1066.

Academy of St. Gabriel Report 2924, Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.s-gabriel.org/2924) gives Drache in 1357 in Frankfurt and Drache in 1356 in Baden.

[Bahlow/Gentry], p. 85 sn Draa(c)k. Dracke (LGer.): dragon, NHG Drache, UGer. Drach; SW Ger. also a house n.: thus in Frkf. "zum Drachen." J. van deme Drachin, Trier 1357; C. Drache, Frkf. 1357"

Additional Documentation provided by Christian Jorgensen af Hilsonger & ffride wlffsdotter:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2KQ-14N Batch M00360-1 Name Graye Hatche 1591

Rogerus Graye, male, christened 1538, England. Batch no. C05036-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N5QZ-BLW)

R&W sn. Drake Leuing Drache 1066

The September 2012 LoAR cover letter notes: "In general, family names documented in sixteenth century England may be used to create given names, even if they are of Scottish or Gaelic origin." (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5)

So the surname "Graye" squeaks in with less than 500 years after the example of "Drache," even though (like Christian's pointed out) it shows up as a given name in 1591.

The device was conflict checked on the ILoI by Green Anchor. No conflicts were found.


Thus ends the November 2017 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

In Service,

THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a
