Avacal LoI dated 2018-03-31

Greetings from Avacal College of Heralds. We have 11 submissions for your commentary

1: Áine inghean Uí Cuinn - New Name

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

Áine- [Woulfe] Irish Names and Surnames p 42. The given name Áine appears in O'Brien's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" at http://www.medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Aine.shtml as a standardized middle Irish and early modern Irish feminine name assoicated with annalistic years of 1169, 1171, 1316, 1319, 1325, 1329, 1381, 1382, 1386, 1405, 1419, 1427, 1431, 1441 and 1468.

inghean - Quick and Easy Gaelic Names Formerly Published as "Quick and Easy Gaelic Bynames" 3rd edition by Sharon L. Krossa

"single given name" inghean Ui "eponymous clan ancestor's name" in genitive case & always lenited unless starting with a vowel.

Ó Cuinn - [Woulfe] Irish Names and Surnames; 'descedendant of Conn'; a very common surname in all parts of Ireland. There are several distinct families so called, of which the following are best know. 1) Ó Cuinn of Thomond a branch of the Dal gCais(sp?) descended from Conn, lord of Muinntear Ifreanain, who flourished in the latter part of the 10th century. They are originally seated at Inchiquin, and their territory which, from their clan-name, was designated Muinntear Ifearnain, comprised the country around Corofin, in Co. Clare. The Earl of Dunraven is a member of this family

2) Ó Cuinn if Annaly, a branch of Commaicne and of the same stock as the O'Farrells, who were chiefs of Muinntear Giollagain, an extensive district of Co. Longford, until towards the end of the 1th century when they are supplanted by the O'Farrells.

The standard Middle Irish Gaelic and Early Modern Irish Gaelic genitive form of Conn is "Cuinn", according to Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's Index of Names in Irish Annals (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Conn.shtml). The standard normalized spelling of a lenited "C" is "Ch" for both languages, per Sharon L. Krossa's The Spelling of Lenited Consonants in Gaelic (https://medievalscotland.org/scotlang/lenition.shtml). And lenition of the ancestor's name is required in a feminine clan affiliation byname, as explained in the quote from "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" that makes up part of this submission (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname). All of that adds up to "ingen Uí Chuinn" for Middle Irish Gaelic and "inghean Uí Chuinn" for Early Modern Irish Gaelic (using the standard spellings of the word for 'daughter' recognized by SENA [http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixAGaelic]).

In our opinion, these are clear but leave the decision to Pelican. Áine inghean Chuinn, is minimally clear of the submitted Áine inghean Uí Cuinn by the added particle even if Cuinn> and Chuinn are indistinguishable. Áine inghean Chuinn, 10/99, is minimally clear of a revised submission Áine inghean Uí Chuinn.

9: Tighearnán Ó Cuinn - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Tighearnán - [Woulfe] Irish Names and Surnames p 41

The given name Tighearnán appears in O'Briens "Index of Names in Irish Annals" at http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Tigernan.shtmlas a standardized Early Modern Irish Gaelic (c1200-1700) nominative form found in the years 980, 1201, 1313. Also, "Annals of the Four Masters", Vol 6, http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/G100005F/, entry M1590.3 which also mentions Tighearnan Bán mac Briain mic Eoghain Uí Ruairc.

Ó Cuinn - [Woulfe] Irish Names and Surnames; 'descedendant of Conn'; a very common surname in all parts of Ireland. There are several distinct families so called, of which the following are best know. 1) Ó Cuinn of Thomond a branch of the Dal gCais(sp?) descended from Conn, lord of Muinntear Ifreanain, who flourished in the latter part of the 10th century. They are originally seated at Inchiquin, and their territory which, from their clan-name, was designated Muinntear Ifearnain, comprised the country around Corofin, in Co. Clare. The Ear of Dunraven is a member of this family

2) Ó Cuinn if Annaly, a branch of Commaicne and of the same stoack as the O'Farrells, who were chiefs of Muinntear Giollagain, an extensive district of Co. Longford, until towards the end of the 1th century when they are supplanted by the O'Farrells.

Italicized header forms in Woulfe date to the late 16th or early 17th century (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Woulfe/index.shtml). In the entry for Ó Cuinn those are "O Quyn", "O Quine", and "O Coyne" (http://www.libraryireland.com/names/oc/o-cuinn.php). There are none in the entry for Tighearnán (http://www.libraryireland.com/names/men/tighearnan-tiernan.php). So far as I know, all other forms in the book are undated, which makes Woulfe useless for this submission.

The standard Early Modern Irish Gaelic genitive form of Conn is "Cuinn", according to Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's Index of Names in Irish Annals (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Conn.shtml). The standard masculine clan affiliation byname built on that would be "Ó Cuinn", per Sharon L. Krossa's Quick and Easy Gaelic Names (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname).


Yours in service,
