New Device. Per saltire arrondi argent and azure, a brown bear rampant regardant proper maintaining to chief a basket Or.

Client requests authenticity for 9th-10th c. Danelaw.

The submitter's branch is Wealdsmere.

Hallgrímr and Þorvaldr are masculine names from the Landnamabok - both are Geirr Bassi - this follows the rules in Geirr Bassi

The genitive of <Þorvaldr> in the Viking Age would be <Þorvaldar>.

Checking E.H. Lind Dopnamn, cols. 1212-1214 s.n. <Þorvaldr>, the earliest example of the genitive is from Sturlunga Saga (13th c.) and is spelled <Þorvaldz>

We have changed the last name according to the information found by Orle

No conflicts found.


7: Luna Francesca di Marco Luppi - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of April 15, 2018 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A cross of four ermine spots Or within and conjoined to a four-lobed quadrate cornice gules.

No Conflicts found.


9: Salvador Rodrigo de Granada - New Name Change & New Badge

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

(Fieldless) On a sun Or a wolf's head erased sable.

Old Item: Siggeirr Fjallgeirsson, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 16th century Spanish.
Sound (Rodrigo may be dropped if conflict) most important.

The submitter's branch is Wastekeep.

The submitter's old name, Siggeirr Fjallgeirsson, was registered in July 2017 via An Tir.

16th Century Spanish Names by Elsbeth Anne Roth (Kathy Van Stone)is the article. Salvador is dated to 1571. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/spanish/male-given-alpha.html

Rodrigo is dated to 1539, 1560, 1571, 1574. Same url.

Rodrigo is also a patronym http://heraldry.sca.org/names/spanish/patro-freq.html

Family Search has a Juan de Granada married 13 May 1570, Batch no. M87104-2. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FF6R-7JH

Since we cn find Rodrigo as a secondary given name and we can do so under appendix A we find no issue with the construction of the name.

No conflicts found.


10: Stephen the Sinister - Resub Name

The submitter's branch is Dragon's Laire.

The submitter's previous submission, Stephen of York was returned by An Tir in May 2017:

Stephen of York. New Name and New Device. Sable, a chevron between in chief two pairs of axes and arrows in saltire and in base a stalk of wheat bendwise sinister Or.

It was not entirely clear to us whether the submitter wanted the name Stephen or Stephan. Either way, the name conflicts with Stephan of Yorke, registered May 1991 via the Middle.

Lacking a name with which to associate it, the device must also be returned. Additionally, the secondary charge group includes axes, arrows, and a feather - three different charge types - thus violating SENA A.2.D.2.a, which states that "a charge group with more than two types of charges is not allowed.

Stephen - saint's name found in Withycombe, p. 273. Dated to 1273, 1379, 1440, etc. in England.

The Sinister - In February 2015, we accepted the name Xavier the Sinister (A-An Tir), ruling: Appendix A of SENA allows the use of marked and unmarked descriptive/occupational bynames in French. Examples of descriptive or occupational bynames from the 15th and 16th centuries include Cordewanier/le Cordewanier, Devin/Le Devin, Villain/Le Villain, and Mauwin/Le Mauwin, all found in Domhnall na Moicheirghe's article, "Names from Lallaing 1384 - 1600" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/lallaing_names.html). Therefore le Senestre is a plausible form of the attested 15th century French Senestre, and we can allow the lingua Anglica form, the Sinister.

Closest conflict is:

Steffan the Scrivener

This name was registered in February of 1990 (via Caid).

Clear under SENA PN.3.C.1 Changes to Two Syllables


11: Þangbrandr Sløngvandbaugi - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for Norse reasons, 800 AD time period.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Meaning most important.

website at http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml (Look for <Þangbrandr>)

<Þangbrandr> isn't actually an Old Norse name, though we find it in a number of Norse sagas, from Olafs saga Tryggvasonar, Heimskringla, Landnámabók, etc. The actual name is probably Old High German <Dankbrandt>, for Þangbrandr.

Lind Personbinamn col. 341 sn. slǫngvandbaugi

Given the info found we have taken out the space under the minor changes allowance.

No Conflicts Found.


12: Þōrhrōlfr Egilson - New Name & New Device

Potent, on a pile sable fimbriated a sea-boar Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 880-930 Scandinavian. Swedish or Norwegian.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Meaning most important.

The submitter's branch is Adiantum.

Þōrhrōlfr: The Viking Answer Lady http://www.thevikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#Z

Cleasby & Vigfusson sv. Jöfurr says:

(http://lexicon.ff.cuni.cz/html/oi_cleasbyvigfusson/b0327.html)

Egilson - The Viking Answer Lady www.thevikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#E

We have removed the Jofurr on the request of the submitter.

No Conflicts found


13: Yrsa Bjørnsdóttir - New Name

The submitter's branch is Wealdsmere.

Yrsa is a feminine name from Geírr Bassi

Björnsdottír is a later form of the Old Norse Bjarnardottir. Lind Dopnawn sn Biǫrn dates Biorns_ from Diplomatarium Norvegicum from n_ earlier than 1330. The elements aren't both Old Norse but they are compatible.

Cleasby-Vigfusson and others use o-umlaut to represent o-ogonek.

E. H. Lind Dopnamn cols 133-147 s.n.<Biǫrn>, there's no evidence for the o-umlaut. The genitive formation as some variant of <Biarnar> is remarkably persistent.

c.1400 Biørns (Biskop Eysteins Jordbók)

1404 Biorns, Biornns (Diplomatarium Norvegicum)

1434 Biaurns (Diplomatarium Norvegicum)

Orle suggests the patronymic can be <Bjarnardóttir>, <Bjørnsdóttir>, or <Bjornsdóttir>. The "j" in each can be replaced with "i"

and so have changed the last name to the closest to the submitter's requested name based on examples from Lind.

No Conflicts found

Correction to Name (2018-May-31 13:05:05): The byname was originally submitted as <Björnsdottír>.


I remain,
In service to Crown, Coronet and College,
Viscountess Elizabeth Turner de Carlisle
Lions Blood Herald
