Gyronny arrondi gules and Or a dragon sejant affronty, head to dexter and wings displayed sable

The previous submission, Gyronny arrondi sable and gules a dragon sejant affronty head to dexter and wings displayed Or, was returned on the March 2018 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2018-02-lop/1803-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a rework. The gyronny arrondi cannot be two colors as it is a complex line of division unless an IAP can be provided for it. Having a center charge over gyronny arrondi is a step from period practice. A dragon sejant affronty with wings displayed is a step from period practice. Only one SFPP is permitted. The gyronny arrondi is incorrectly drawn - it should start at the dexter corner.

6: Hrefna Ylffva -Resub Name & Resub Device

Argent, a raven sable and on a chief purpure three valknuts argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Hrefna - 'Old Norse Women's Names' from Viking Answer Lady Webpage (http://vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml#h)

Hrefna: is found in "The Old Norse Name" by Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. Hrefna is feminine name found on pg. 11.

Ylffva: Olaus Petri's "Svenska Krˆnika", which was written in the early 16th century, when he mentioned the 12th century queen Ingrid Ylva. But, it's not modern spelling:

p. 59 and 73 <Ingrid Ylffues>

https://books.google.com.au/books?pg=PA59&vq=Ingrid&dq=inauthor%3A"Olaus%20Petri"&id=VuBAAAAAcAAJ&as_#v=onepage&q=Ingrid&f=false

https://books.google.com.au/books?pg=PA73&vq=Ingrid&dq=inauthor%3A"Olaus%20Petri"&id=VuBAAAAAcAAJ&as_#v=onepage&q=Ingrid&f=false

p. 71 <Ingrid Ylffwa>

https://books.google.com.au/books?pg=PA71&vq=Ingrid&dq=inauthor%3A"Olaus%20Petri"&id=VuBAAAAAcAAJ&as_#v=onepage&q=Ingrid&f=false

Which makes for a medieval spelling of <Ylffva> or <Ylffwa>

The previous submissions, Hrefna Ylva and http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2018-03-lop/1804-lor.html, were returned on the April 2018 LoR () with the following: {Both items returned for a rework. The name lacks proper documentation and direction for what was submitted. Submitter did not mark intended gender of name on the form. The structure of Scandinavian names are gender-specific so this needs to be identified. Commentors did offer options and additional documentation for resubmission possibilities. The device is returned for the appearance of marshalling - SENA A.6.F.2.c: "When different sections of the field contain different types of charges, it creates the appearance of marshalling. For example, Quarterly gules and azure, in bend two crosses crosslet and in bend sinister two roses argent creates the appearance of marshalling, as does Quarterly vert and erminois, in bend a badger and a fleur-de-lys argent.".

7: Iago Martyn -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2015, via the Outlands.

Per pale sable and Or, a chevron inverted counterchanged

The previous submission, Per pale sable and Or, a chevron inverted counterchanged, was returned on the May 2017 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2017-04-lop/1705-lor.html) with the following: {... The badge is returned for a redraw as the chevron inverted is too low. The bottom edge of the chevron inverted's edge should sit slightly above the fess line.
