Atlantia LoP dated 2017-12-12

Unto Cian Triton, Beatrice Golden Dolphin, and the Atlantian College of Heralds does Catherine Ibis send warm greetings! This mini-letter contains several submissions from October and November that were mistakenly overlooked. Commentary for this letter will close January 10th, 2018.

1: Aban ibn Khalid -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Aban ibn Khalid) most important.

All elements documented from Appleton's "PERIOD ARABIC NAMES AND NAMING PRACTICES" at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm:

Aban and Khalid both appear in the list of masculine isms.

The pattern of the name follows that of ism son of ism [one generation nasab], illustrated by Yusuf ibn Ayyub.

Consulting Herald: Alisoun MacCoul of Elphane


2: Gavin Reynes -New Heraldic Will

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1980, via the East.

"I, <modern name redacted>, known in the Society for Creative Anachronism, Incorporated (SCA) as Gavin Reynes, leave to the Barony of Nottinghill Coill my name registered in the SCA: "Gavin Reynes" and give them permission to use the name elements in award or order names."

Document is dated November 12, 2017, and signed with submitter's mundane name.

Consulting Herald: Etienne Sea Stag


3: Runa Ravenstrom -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Rúna appears on runestone U687 where http://danmarksstednavne.navneforskning.ku.dk/ for instance has:

Raven: Danmarks Stednavne has: sn. Ny Ravnekær (it glosses "kær" as a shallow, swampy lake, so this would be "Raven-lake").
1512 Raffneker, 1529 (1576-78) Rafnkiær

Sn. Nørre Ravnsbæk (this is "Raven's-brook")
1620 Raffnsbeck, 1642 Raffnsbeck

Ravnbjerg (Raven-mountain)
1560 (1584) Raffnbierg

Ravnby (raven-settlement/city)
1546 Ravenby Mark

Ravnholt (raven-copse)
1545 rauffenholt, 1573 Rafuenholt, 1599 Rauenholt

Strom: sn. Møllestrøm: 1473 "oppe deme molenstrom" (up by the mill-stream)
sn Øle Å: 1588 Ollestrom (beer-stream)
"Norske Gaardnavne"
has: (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/navnegransking/rygh_ng/rygh_visetekst.prl?s=n&Vise=Vise&KRYSS172708%40 38737=on&KRYSS172704%4038736=on) sn. B. 11, s.208, 12. Sørstrømmen.
i Strøme NRJ.
pa Strøme NRJ.
Sørstrom 1610.
(NRJ is "Biskop Eysteins jordebok" circa 1390)
ie. "South-stream"

B. 11, s.208, 14. NordstrØmmen: Nordstrom 1610, ie. "north-stream".
So we can show "-strom" shows up in placenames. It's dated "V Pr4" which is to say c. 1060-1100. http://skaldic.abdn.ac.uk/db.php?table=mss&id=17507&if=runic

4: Yvonne Mont Clair -New Name

Sound (E-von Mont-clare) most important.

Submitter would prefer the byname to be Montclair (one word) if it can be documented.

Izabellam Mont married on 20 November 1559 at Hanley Castle in Worcestershire (Batch #: M042161)
