Ealdormere LoI dated 2018-05-24

Unto the Sovereigns and other members of the College of Arms of the Society, come greetings from Dietrich von Sachsen, Green Mantle Herald.

It is the intent of the Ealdormere College of Heralds to submit the following for your consideration.

1: Aibhilín of Skye - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1990, via the Middle.

Per bend argent and gules, a wool comb and a sheep rampant counterchanged.

Correction to Badge (2018-Apr-26 23:04:06): Blazon should be "Per bend argent and gules, a wool comb and a sheep rampant counterchanged."


2: Ásta Starradóttir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language (Old Norse) most important.

All elements of the name are found "The Old Norse Name," Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. Olney, MD: Markland Medieval Militia. 1977.

Ásta appears as a feminine given name on p. 8.

Starri is a masculine given name, p. 8. The patronym is constructed according rules for formation of patronymic on page 17 of the same.

Based on commentary at kingdom level, with the client's permission we have added accents to be consistent.

Correction to Name (2018-May-30 09:05:50): The Client has instructed that she wishes her submission withdrawn.


3: Christiana Macnamara - New Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1999, via Ealdormere.

Gules, a winged snail, on a chief argent two apples gules leaved vert, as an augmentation the dexter apple within a serpent in annulo vorant of its tail quarterly gules and vert

Augmentation was awarded on April 7th, 2018. The court report and the award scroll have been included with this submission.

Based on Kingdom-level commentary, and with client's permission, we have redrawn the apples in a period style.


4: Kitta Mjǫksiglandi - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Kitta is a short form for the name, `Kristín". Cleasby, Richard and Guðbrandr Vigfusson. An Icelandic-English Dictionary. 2nd ed. Oxford: Clarendon. 1957, pp. xxxiv s.v. "Pet Names".

Mjǫksiglandi means `much-sailing or far-travelling" and occurs three times in the Landnámabók. http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html


5: Rúna Sǫlveigardóttir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Culture (Old Norse) most important.

Rúna is a female given name found in Nordiskt runnamnslexikon p. 185 sn. Rúna

(http://www.sprakochfolkminnen.se/om-oss/arkiv-och-samlingar/nordiskt-runnamnslexikon.html). Rúna is the short form of feminine names in Rún- or -rún.

Sǫlveig is found as Old Norse feminine name in Geir Bassi, p. 15. The genitive form is Sǫlveigar, making the matronymic form Sǫlveigarson or Sǫlveigardóttir.

Based on Kingdom commentary, and with Client's Permission, we have removed the "s" and added the accent in -dóttir.


Many and warmest thanks to those who have taken the time to comment and thus advance the art and science of heraldry in the Society.

Dietrich von Sachsen

Green Mantle Herald
