East LoI dated 2018-01-31

Unto Juliana Laurel, Alys Pellicane, and Cormac Wreath, from Yehuda Blue Tyger, greetings!

Kilcullen is the Lingua Anglica form of an Irish place raided by Vikings in the 10th century (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilcullen) The 16th century form Kilcullyn is found in "Henry VIII: July 1537, 26-31" in _Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic, Henry VIII, Vol. 12, Part 2, June-December 1547_ (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/letters-papers-hen8/vol12/no2/pp141-169)

5: Condal ingen Odar - New Name & New Device

Per fess gules and sable, a weasel passant and in chief three acorns Or

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Culture (Gaelic Irish) most important.

Condal is a feminine personal name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien), dated to 792 and 797. https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Annalslndex/Feminine/Condal.shtml

ingen is the pre-1200 form of 'daughter', per Sharon Krossa, "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#simplepatronymicbyname).

Odar is a masculine personal name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien), dated to 1055 and 1056. https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Annalslndex/Masculine/Odar.shtml No genitive is listed, so the submitter welcomes assistance in adjusting the patronymic to the genitive form.

Name elements are found well within the 500 year allowance for names from the same language.


6: Corcran mac Diarmata - Resub Device Change

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Corcrán mac Diarmata in April of 2010, via the East.

Per fess argent and sable, two ravens volant to chief and a Thor's hammer counterchanged within a bordure gules

Old Item: Barry wavy argent and gules, a roundel checky Or and sable, to be retained as a badge.

This device change was previously returned on the June 2016 LoAR:

Corcrán mac Diarmata. Device change. Per chevron argent and sable, two ravens volant to sinister chief and a Thor's hammer counterchanged.

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation" The charges here are not in a unified arrangement, as the birds are bendwise sinister and the Thor's hammer in its default orientation.

On redesign, please advise the submitter to draw the per chevron line of division slightly lower.

This resubmission resolves the problem.

There is a step from period practice for the use of a bird migrant to chief, which is equivalent to a bird displayed, but it's the only one.

refr is the ON word for 'fox', found in the the Landnamabok at http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html

Per Cleasby and Vigfusson, the feminine form for refr would be refa if this is needed for a feminine name. Submitter does allow adding/deleting a word like "de" or "the" or changing language when the change is small.


14: Kveld-Randvér úlfr - New Name

Meaning (evening, wolf, and name beginning Rand-) most important.

Kveld is found in GB p 25 s.n. Kveld as a nickname meaning evening.

Randvér is a male given name found in GB p 14.

úlfr is a constructed byname meaning wolf. Zoega's Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic shows úlfr as a common noun with that meaning (p 568, now available online at http://css4.pub/2015/icelandic/dictionary.pdf). This would be parallel to a number of animal bynames shown by Geir Bassi: bestiger or captive-bear (op. cit p 20) bjarki or bear-cub (ibid.), brúsi or "buck" (ibid), etc.

Kingdom commenters pointed out that SENA Appendix A gives a pattern of "descriptive byname + patronymic" but not double descriptive bynames. However, recent precedent says:

"By longstanding precedent, double descriptive bynames are permitted in Old Norse. [Þórdís gjallandi eyverska, 2/2002 LoAR, A-Outlands]" [Svava hvita svanr, A-Avacal, Aug 2017 LoAR]

Charries is a French surname dated to 1428 in Jean de Boueil, Le Jouvencel (Volume 2) available on Google Books at books.google.com/books?id=A2U_AQAAMAAJ

Submitter would like the spelling "Charriez" if we can find it. She believes this is a Spanish (and modern Puerto Rican) form of an originally French name.

This submission includes an inverted ibex, in violation of our long-standing prohibition on inverted animate charges. However, the submitter argues, and presents documentation, for the use of an inverted ibex.

The submitter has provided numerous period examples of art featuring an inverted ibex, along with a scholarly article, and argues that the inverted posture was commonly used in art to differentiate ibexes from goats.

Although no examples were offered of such use in armory, we felt that sufficient evidence was presented to justify forwarding this device for wider commentary on the issue.

Selected images attached, complete documentation in the packet.

21: Maximillian Elgin - New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2011, via the East.

Black Sheep House of the East

No major changes.

Per "English Sign Names" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/#coloranimal), English inn sign names use the pattern [color] + [animal].

The spelling black is found dated to 1458 in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. blak (n.) (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=17112871&egdisplay=compact&egs=17116636&e gs=17117967&egs=17127864)

The spelling sheep is found dated to 1425 in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. herd(e) (n.(2)) (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=76105195&egdisplay=compact&egs=76122828)

The spelling house is found dated to 1453 in the Middle English Dictionary s.v bai (n.(2)) (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=10707855&egdisplay=compact&egs=10710568)

House is an allowable household name designator Per SENA NPN.1 "Non-Personal Names Content".

Kingdom commenters questioned whether this name conflicts with the registered heraldic title Blak Shepe Pursuivant [A-An Tir, Oct 2013 LoAR]. While branch names can clear conflict between order names, it is not clear if adding "of the East" clears a conflict between a household and a heraldic title. We are therefore forwarding this household name for a ruling.

Although such is not required, the submitter is, in fact, a resident of the East Kingdom.


22: Mordred Ateheye - New Name

Sound (Mor-Dread) most important.

Mordred

The April 2009 LoAR states: Pelican Emeritus notes that Mordred, in this spelling, appears 7 times in Le Morte de Arthur, a romance in stanzas of 8 lines; re-edited from ms. Harley 2252, in the British Museum; with introduction, notes, glossary, and index of names, by J. Douglas Bruce. (London: K. Paul, Trench, Trübner for the Early English Text Society, 1903), and 149 times in Malory, Le Morte Darthur (London: David Nutt, 1889). Since Mordred is the name of a prominent character in a major medieval literary work, it is registrable under the literary names allowance [Mordred Blaksoule, 4/2009 LoAR, East]

Note that Medrod is also found as a masculine name in 'Cornish (and Other) Personal names from the 10th Century Bodmin Manumissions' by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvrynm s.n. Medrod (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Bodmin/celtic.html) Tangwystyl states "Bartrum has 2 examples of the name Medrod, it may be the same as Redon's Modrot (This is the name that became the Arthurian Mordred.) The Bodmin entry is identified as someone's son, so the gender identification is clear."

Further, "Modredis [genitive] (E 204 witness)"

Ateheye is a byname found in Reany & Wilson, s.n. <Athey dated to 1279 in the name Lecia Ateheye. The name means 'dweller at the enclosure'.

Old Item: Purpure, on a bezant a drakkar purpure, a bordure Or, to be released.

Kingdom commenters were concerned that this badge was presumptuous of, or obtrusively modern because of a resemblance to, the logo of Marvel's SHIELD. As questions of presumption and obtrusive modernity are reserved for Wreath and Laurel, we are forwarding this badge.


27: Patricio de Cordoba - New Badge

(Fieldless) Between two bars couped maintaining and conjoined to four annulets, a bar couped maintaining and conjoined to two lozenges Or, overall two swords in saltire gules

One blazon, proposed by Iago ab Adam, is: (Fieldless) Between two bars couped each end conjoined with an annulet, a bar couped each end conjoined with a lozenge Or, overall two swords in saltire gules. However, we are not convinced that a competent heraldic artist would reproduce this badge from either the submitted or the alternate blazon.

Grimólfr is a male given name found at least four times in "Viking Names found in Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael. According to the rules set out on p. 17 of Geirr Bassi, the patronymic form should be Grimólfsdóttir.

Meaning (likes) most important.

Safiya is a feminine given name from North Africa and Arabian Peninsula Fourteenth Century in Basil Dragonstrike Names Found in the First Volume of the Travels of Ibn Battuta https://s-gabriel.org/names/basil/battuta/

Old Item: Steffan ap Cenydd of Silverwing, to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (Kennydd may be changed to Kenydd) most important.

Current registered name is Steffan ap Cenydd of Silverwing, July 1984 via the East.

Cennydd is found in Withycombe, s.n. Kenneth. The Welsh form of the name is found as Cennydd son of Gila, a 6th C Welsh saint. The form Cenydd is found in _Lives of the British Saints: the Saints of Wales and Cornwall_.

Examples of c/k switches include Caducan[us]/Kadugan[us] and Cadwalader/Kadwaladrus, found in Constanza of Thamesreach, "Given names in the charters of the Abbey of Ystrad Marchell, 1176-1283" (https://s-gabriel.org/names/constanza/ystradmarchell-given.html) and Cnaiþur/Keneithur, found in Constanza of Thamesreach's "Given Names from the Llandaff Episcopal Acta, 1146-1286 (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/constanza/llandaff.html)

The submitter was granted the right to an Augmentation by the hand of Kenric and Avelina, on 8/8/2012, at Pennsic.

Kingdom commenters pointed out that this is not chapé ployé invected but is closer to chapé invected. HHowever, this depiction is, in our opinion, matches that previously regtistered to the submitter and currently blazoned in the O&A as Azure, chapé ployé invected, an owl close affronté argent. See image, attached. If a reblazon is necessary, both the augmentation and the original likely need to be reblazoned.

Halvorsen is a patronymic byname found as Halvarsson dated 1407 and 1460, respectively, Halvorrson dated to 1473 in SMP, s.n. Halvardh, so Halvorson is a plausible interpolated form of the patronym.
