Simona: "Online Catasto of 1427", based on David Herlihy and Christine Klapisch-Zuber (principle investigators), "Census and Property Survey of Florentine Dominions in the Province of Tuscany, 1427-1480", 21 Jan 18, located at http://www.stg.brown.edu/projects/catasto/overview.html

Although double given names in Italian are rare, they are not unheard of (Juliana de Luna (Julie Smith)), "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Venice", Medieval Names Archive, 21 Jan 18 located at http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Venice.shtml#FeminineGivenNamesEarlier)

da Murano: The island of Murano (Italy) is located in the Venetian lagooon, and has been in existence since the 6th century. It is best known for glass making. Da Murano follows the Italian locative naming pattern outlined in "Names from Sixteenth Century Venice" by Juliana de Luna (Julie Smith) located at http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/16thcvenice.html.


3: Jacob Martinson -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2014, via Æthelmearc.

Sable, a lion's head erased breathing flames Or, on a chief argent two swords in saltire gules.

Herald of Record: Edwin le Clerc


4: Li Chang -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Lee Chang) most important.
Meaning (to draw a bow) most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Li: Katsumori, "Introduction to pre-16th Century Chinese Onomastics", at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Chinese-Onomastics_v1.1.pdf), dated from 466 to 1600.

5: Pascal de Tolosa -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (Occitania circa 1220) most important.

Herald of Record: Alaric Acwulf

Pascal: R.P. Gonzalo Díez Melcón, "Apellidos Castellano-Leoneses: Siglos IX-XIII", ambos inclusive (Universidad de Granada, 1957).

Pascal Bunel was baptized on December 24, 1560 in Rouen, Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France. A copy of the record is shown below and included in the packet.

Tolosa: A town and municipality in the Basque province of Gipuzkoa, in northern Spain. It is also an earlier spelling of the name of the city of Toulouse, according to http://www.midi-france.info/030106_toulouse.htm.

Per Appendix B, French and Iberian names can be combined.

Correction to Name (2018-Apr-15 22:04:30): Pascal is listed as a vernacular form of the name Pascalis in the article "Languedoc Names circa 1300" at the Academy of Saint Gabriel website (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/toulouse/toulousealpha.html).

6: Þorsteinn inn fagri -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2016, via Æthelmearc.

Per bend argent and sable, a scourge of five lashes purpure and a death's head argent.

Client's previous submission, Per bend sable and argent, a death's head argent and a scourge of five lashes bendwise purpure, was returned on the April 2016 LoAR for violation of Unity of Orientation. On the return, no mention was made of the eye or nasal sockets showing the field tincture.

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 orientation of the death's head and scourge have to be described independently.
The closest possible conflict appears to be Béla Kós (device registered November 2002 via the Outlands): Per bend argent and sable, a hawk stooping and a skull counterchanged. We believe it is clear for change of type and tincture of half the primary charge group.


7: Wilhelmina Boddenham -New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and Or, an ounce's head cabossed and a bordure denticulata counterchanged.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Herald of Record: Grimolr Skulason

Wilhelmina: WILHELMINA PHILLIPES; Female; Marriage; 12 Nov 1565; St James, Bristol, Gloucester, England; Batch: M17286-1

Boddenham: https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/christian/fairnames/surnames.html#list

Herald of Record: Edwin le Clerc


"In April, we cannot see sunflowers in France, so we might say the sunflowers do not exist. But the local farmers have already planted thousands of seeds, and when they look at the bare hills, they may be able to see the sunflowers already. The sunflowers are there. They lack only the conditions of sun, heat, rain and July. Just because we cannot see them does not mean that they do not exist." --Thich Nhat Hanh
