Argent, a galleon proper sailed vert, on a chief azure three roses argent.

Muirghein: This name appears in Old Irish as Muirgen, in Medieval Irish as Muirgein, in Early Modern Irish as Muirghein, and after the 20th century spelling reform it becomes Muirín. [OC&M, DIL]

In medieval records, it appears in ordinary use as the name of both men and women. (There is also at least one semi-legendary literary figure that bears the name.) [OC&M]

The Common Celtic name from which it derives is most likely *Morigenos (which would have been the masculine form), which means "sea-born." The elements Mori- and -genos can be found in Gaulish names, although the compound itself does not appear in surviving inscriptions.

This name was in ordinary use prior to 1600 by both men and women.

MacQuarrie: Scottish byname, found in John Macquarrie of Ulva, who died in 1437. From Register of the Great Seal of Scotland, XXXI, page 159. Also see History of the Western Highlands and Isle of Scotland from AD 1493 to AD 1625 by Donald Gregory (London: Hamilton, Adams, and Co., 1881), pages 81 and 170.

Originally submitted as "Argent, a galleon proper sailed per pale azure and vert, on a chief azure three roses argent."; however, it was pointed out that sails are checked as seperate armoury, which lead to a conflict.

With client's permission, emblazon and blazon has been changed.


9: Pádraig Ó Conchobhair - New Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Gules, an Irish harp within a double tressure Or

The original submission, Gules, an Irish harp within an annulet voided Or, was pulled from last month's KLoI as it was pointed out that only primary charges could be voided.


10: Ramshaven, Barony of - Resub Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1993, via the Middle.

Award of the Jewel of Ramshaven

Submitter has no desire as to gender.

Orginally submitted in 2005 as "Award of the Jewel of Ramshaven" (it appeared on the January 2006 LoAR):

"Conflict with Order of the Jewel of AEthelmearc, registered May 1994 and owned by the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. Neither the designator nor the group name in either order name counts for difference. The submitters have a letter of permission to conflict with House of Jewels registered May 1984, owned by Suzanna Jewell."

This submission was undertaken pre-SENA; under the current rules, the group designation does count for a difference. Therefore, the item is being resubmitted.
