3: Eino Karjalainen -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister rayonny argent and gules, an armored arm fesswise embowed reversed sustaining a torch bendwise and an armored arm fesswise embowed sustaining a sword bendwise sinister counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (Finnish) most important.
Spelling (Eino) most important.

Eino is a male Finnish given name of Germanic origin (E(i)newald(us)) dated to 1560 in Suomen Karjalan Nimistö (1975) by Viljo Nissilä (#1). On p. 251 (#2):

s.n. Eino < E(i)newald: "olli eynonca (= Einonpoika) Hemelin 1560" from Jääski parish.

<Eynonpo[i/j/y]ca> is a patronymic byname consisting of the genitive form of the nominative <Eyno>, and <-poica>, 'son'. In Katsaus vanhan kirjasuomen ortografiaan (University of Helsinki: ortography of old written Finnish language, http://www.helsinki.fi/vvks/lyhenteet_ja_ortografia/katsaus_ortografiaan/index.html) Pirkko Forsman Svensson writes:

In 16th century "/i/ = i ; ij ; j ; diftongeissa usein y" (/i/ could be written as i ; ij ; j ; in diphtongs often y).

Thus "ey-" in <Eyno> could also be spelled as "ei-" or "ej-", and the spelling <Eino> is plausible during the latter half of 16th century.

Karjalainen is a Finnish byname dated to 16th century and the gray period in Suomen Karjalan Nimistö (1975) by Viljo Nissilä (#1). On p. 156 (#3):

s.n. Karjala ja Karjalainen: <per karialain> 1543, <Lauri Karialaine> 1550, <S Karialaijne> 1551, <Coske Carialain> 1593, <Kuisma Karialainen> 1616.

According to Katsaus vanhan kirjasuomen ortografiaan (University of Helsinki: ortography of old written Finnish language, http://www.helsinki.fi/vvks/lyhenteet_ja_ortografia/katsaus_ortografiaan/index.html) by Pirkko Forsman Svensson, in 16th century Finnish ortography /i/ could be written as j.

Thus <Karjalainen> is plausible during the latter half of 16th century.

Name Notes:

The submitter is very invested in the spelling <Eino> and wishes no changes to it. He allows minor changes to <Karjalainen> if necessary.

Correction to Device (2018-Apr-10 15:04:34): This is going to have all sorts of unity of posture rules trouble

4: Elijah of Red Sky -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Drachenwald LoI of March 30, 2018 as submitted.

Gules, a mullet of four points and on a point pointed argent a pine tree gules.

The submitter withdrew his earlier device submission from kingdom commentary (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=14&id=84023). This is a redesign.

The name was submitted in Drachenwald LoI 2018-03-30 (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=84939).


5: Frostheim, Shire of -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2001, via Drachenwald.

Sable, a bend argent, overall a key, wards to sinister, within and conjoined to a laurel wreath Or.

The submission, as Sable, a bend argent, overall a key within a laurel wreath Or. was in Drachenwald LoI 2017-04-30 (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=75217), as Sable, a bend argent, overall a key, wards to sinister, within a laurel wreath Or. and was returned in LoAR 07-2017 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/07/17-07lar.html#184):

This device must be returned for redesign. SENA Appendix I, Section D, states that "There can be only one overall charge group in any design." In this design, the laurel wreath is subordinate to the key, which is not allowed. Or, to put it another way, if there had been no bend, the key would have been the primary charge and the laurel wreath the secondary charge - two separate charge groups. They remain two separate charge groups when the bend is inserted.

This design was previously submitted in 1994, and was returned for conflict with modern armory. That conflict was rendered null with the Modest Proposal. However, this is the first attempt at resubmission. Had the submission been more timely, the design issue which is the current cause for return would have been avoided.

The resubmission has been redesigned so that the key and the laurel wreath are conjoined.

A signed petition is included in the packet:

We, the officers and recidents of the shire of Frostheim wish to register the arms of the shire the following:

"sable, a bend argent, overall a key, wards to sinister, within and conjoined to a laurel wreath or"

[signature] [legal name redacted] Seneschal / Marshal

[signature] [legal name redacted] Herald

[signature] [legal name redacted] MoAS

[signature] [legal name redacted] Exchequer / Fencing Marshal

[legal name redacted] Chatelaine

[signature] [legal name redacted] Archery Marshal

Correction to Device (2018-Apr-24 03:04:16): The petition Frostheim originally provided was not dated. A new petition document was created and is included in the packet:

We, the officers and recidents of the shire of Frostheim wish to register the arms of the shire the following:

"sable, a bend argent, overall a key, wards to sinister, within and conjoined to a laurel wreath or"
