Lochac KLoI dated 2018-01-24

Unto the Lochac College of Heralds and those of the Known World does Lord Gunther Boese, Rocket Herald send greetings.

It is our intention to register the following items.

This was up before for less than a day but it was taken down by OSCAR for ending date issues. I have kept or acted on the comments.

1: Aonghus mac Griogair mhic Raghnaill -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2013, via Lochac.

Gules, a sword Or between two badgers combatant argent marked sable.

Consulting Herald Isabella de Bordeaux (Politarchopolis)

This is a resubmission for a December 2013 Laurel return.

Aonghus mac Griogair mhic Raghnaill. Device. Gules, two brocks combattant argent marked sable maintaining between them a sword Or.

This device is returned for blurring the difference between charge groups. The sword here is not actually maintained, as neither brock is touching it. It is neither clearly primary nor co-primary, as the brocks are substantially larger, nor is it clearly a secondary charge. If the brocks were drawn actually holding the sword, it would likely be interpreted as a sustained secondary charge between primary brocks.

Device Comments

Eleyne de Comnocke at 2018-01-23 16:28:23
To my eye, the three charges are co-primary and so the blazon changes to "...in fess a sword Or between two badgers combatant...". If the badgers are intended to be secondary, I would shrink them a bit and the blazon would be "...a sword Or between in fess two badgers combatant..."

Closest I found was:

Madrone Culinary Guild The following device associated with this name was registered in October of 1986 (via An Tir): Gules, in fess a spurtle, a dagger, and a spoon palewise Or.

With 1 DC for the type of over half the primary charge group, and another for the tincture of those same charges.

I did not find a conflict for either interpretation of the device.


2: Cainnech Mcraith -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Consulting Herald Gabriella Borromei (Stegby)

Cainnech Is a Scottish male name from 12c as found in "Scottish Gaelic Given Names: For Men: Names of Scottish Gaels from Scottish Gaelic Sources" by Sharon L. Krossa https://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/gaelicgiven/men/cainneach.shtml

Name Comments:

Drusticc inigena Eddarrnonn at 2018-01-23 21:01:28
This is a mixed Scottish Gaelic and Scots name, Appendix C allows this.

As per the Sept 2007 CL, "Mc" needs to be expanded to "Mac". http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2007/09/07-09cl.html

Black, Surnames of Scotland, sn. Macrae, has a "Macraith de Ospitali", dated to the reign of Malcolm IV, but I'm not sure if it helps as it looks like a given name? https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015011274175;view=1up;seq=648

Consulting Herald Glynnis Hollindale (St Florian de la Riviere)

Name Comments:

Eleyne de Comnocke at 2018-01-23 16:09:22
The name can also be documented from Geirr Bassi:

Dalla is listed as a feminine name on page 9. Spàkona is listed as a byname on page 28, meaning prophetess.

Device Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2018-01-23 16:38:36
There is step from period practice for using charges in annulo not in their default orientation. That appears to be the only one.

4: Daniel de la Guerre -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2016, via Lochac.

Per saltire azure and gules, a quatrefoil Or.

Consulting Herald Amelot de Akeney (Politarchopolis)

PTC with "Celestine de Chatham: Per chevron sable and vert, a quatrefoil Or with only one DC for changing the field." is supplied.

This was returned before http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=66850

Daniel's device was returned on the October 2016 LOAR for the following reason:

Daniel de la Guerre. Device. Per saltire azure and gules, a quatrefoil Or. This device is returned for the depiction of the primary charge. Blazoned on the Letter of intent as a quatrefoil, the primary charge is a shape with four lobes that lack the narrowing towards the center that the leaves of a quatrefoil have. Had it been drawn as a proper quatrefoil, it would have had to be returned for conflict with the device of Celestine de Chatham: Per chevron sable and vert, a quatrefoil Or with only one DC for changing the field.

Device Comments:

Eleyne de Comnocke at 2018-01-23 16:12:59

The depiction of the quatrefoil now looks unremarkable.

I do not see any other conflict assuming there is a DC for orientation:

Stromgard, Barony of The following badge associated with this name was registered in March of 2004 (via An Tir): (Fieldless) A quatrefoil saltirewise slipped Or.

Brunissende Dragonette (Wreath Emerita) at 2018-01-23 20:58:40
Beautiful. I'm glad you got a PtC


5: Eilífr Lukasson -New Name

Consulting Herald ffride wlffsdotter (Politarchopolis)

Eilífr
Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages: U 1022 - Storvreta
http://skaldic.abdn.ac.uk/db.php?table=mss&id=17830

Has the inscription, interpreted in Old West Norse to be:
Vígi(?) ok Halfdan(?) ok Eilífr, Hákon, Rúnfríðr létu rétta stein
eptir Illuga(?), fǫður sinn. Œpir r[i]st[i] rúnar.

and in English:
Vígi(?) and Halfdan(?) and Eilífr (and) Hákon (and) Rúnfríðr had the
stone erected in memory of Illugi(?), their father. Œpir carved the runes.

The runestone is dated "V Pr4" or "Viking Age circa 1060-1100 CE."

Lukasson
Lind col. 749 sn. Lukas
Petr Lukas brodir, died circa 1200
Lukas Gudmvndarson, Diplomatarium Islandicum, 1384

It is assumed that the patronymic would be "Lukasson." As the name elements are within 500 years of each other, and within the Scandinavian language group, the combination is registerable.

Name Comments:

Eleyne de Comnocke at 2018-01-23 16:45:58
The forename can also be documented in Geirr Bassi.

Eilífr is listed as a male name on page 9.

Geirr Bassi gives us no help on how to form the genitive of a name ending in -s, but following from the fact that names in -ss remain unchanged, and then in fact drop an s to become -sson the suggested Lucasson seems likely.

6: Rixenda de Ruppe -New Name

Consulting Herald Eliana Darragone (River haven)

Rixenda is a female given name from 13c Languedoc as found in "Names from Thirteenth Century Languedoc" by by Cateline de la Mor https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/languedoc.html
