Ansteorra LoI dated 2018-05-31

Greetings to the Sovereigns and College of Arms!

This letter contains submissions from Ansteorra Kingdom ILoI dated 2018-04-02 and ended 2018-05-10, which can be found here: https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=5105. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

The Kingdom of Ansteorra humbly submits for registration the following heraldic items:

1: Aki Seulf - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Aki - Viking Answer Lady http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml

Old Danish. Frequently found in Denmark

R&W sn. Acke

Aky prior 1168-75

Seulf - Reaney & Wilson pg 399 sn. Self

Seulf 1066

Robert filius Seulfi 1185Headword- Self, Selfe Anglo Saxon - Seulf

DB: 1066 Robert filius Seulfi

SENA Appendix A says that unmarked patronymics require no further documentation for Old English names.


2: Artur Wolfe - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Artur Cooke

Gender: Male

Burial Date: 24 Jul 1639

Burial Place: Bolingbroke, Lincoln, England

Indexing Project (Batch) Number B05343-4

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JHBJ-Z28

Withycombe, s.n. Arthur has Artur from the Curia Rolls of 1189-1213_

Wolfe: Marriage Thomas Horneby. spouse's name Mary Wolfe 18 Jan 1572 Sainte Giles Cripplegate, london, london, England

M02243-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJ5W-LX1

M13064-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJBT-KT1

Marriage Robert Wolfe spouse's name Annis Hamly 02 Dec 1570 Saint Mabyn, Cornwall, England

John Wolfe 1548-1601 was a renowned Elizabethan-era printer, appointed as printer to the City of London in 1593. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wolfe_(printer)


3: Daniel mac Thámhais - New Name

Daniel - http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Daniel.shtml

Annals of the Four Master M1234.1 has Maol Iosa mac Daniel Uí Gormgaile, showing Daniel was still in use as a Gaelic given name post-1200. Other examples in the annals do NOT have any fadas in Daniel, even when accents appear in the same citation, e.g. Four Masters A, M768.3 Daniel ua Foilene, scribhneóir Lethabhai.

mac Thámhais - s.n. (mac) Cavish - A rare name found in County Cavan akin to the Scottish MacTavish - MacLnsaght; The Surnames of Ireland p 41

MacTavish - from Mac Támhais, Doncan M'Thamais 1355 - Black; The Surnames of Scotland p 566

Woulfe, s.n. Mac Thámhais has anglicized spellings near 1600 of M'Cawyshe and M'Cawys, so the patronymic is supported in this form (i.e. Tamas rather than Tomas)


4: Diederick van Sitteren - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name on the Ansteorra LoI of February 28, 2018 as submitted.

Maubee Knott

Maubee - Allowance of surname-as-Given name in SENA Found on FamilySearch.org

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JQP4-QL1 : 11 February 2018, Knott, 1733


5: Duncan of Sileby - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Ansteorra LoI of November 03, 2015 as submitted.

Argent, a brown bison statant to sinister proper, an orle vert.

This is a complete redesign.

Previous submission - https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=59208

[February 2016 LoAR, R-Ansteorra] Duncan Sileby. Device. Argent, on a mullet of four greater and twelve lesser points sable, a wisent's head cabossed argent.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters were unable to identify the type of beast's head used as tertiary charge.

On resubmission, if the submitter still chooses to use a mullet of four greater and twelve lesser points, they should provide arguments in favor of registering it, as it follows no known pattern of period usage. We allow mullets of alternating large and small points, such as compass stars, with a step from period practice.


6: Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia - New Alternate Name

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia in July of 2004, via Ansteorra.

Stepan Tvorimir syn Ivanov

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language most important.
Culture (12th century Russian) most important.

All from Wickenden http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/

Stepan (12th century)

Tvorimir (12th century)

Ivanich (1176)

Name is <christened name> <Slavic name> <christened patronymic> per SENA Appendix A


7: Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia - New Alternate Name

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia in July of 2004, via Ansteorra.

Yi Jun

No major changes.
Language most important.
Culture (Joseon Korean) most important.

Yi - is an alternate translation of "이" that is closer to the Korean pronounciation commonly spelled Lee, this name was common among both royal noble and non-noble families through period. It is the second most common family name in South Korea (see attached documentation) Since neither are the standard transliteration in McCune-Rauscher (which would be "I", not at all conducive to correct pronunciation) I am following the Korean tradition of using the transliteration Yi in historical contexts.

The relics of Admiral Yi Sun-sin (1545-1598) are classed as National Treasure 326 in South Korea, and have an entry on the Cultural Heritage Administration's website in English: http://english.cha.go.kr/chaen/search/selectGeneralSearchDetail.do?sCcebKdcd=12&ccebAsno=03260000&sC cebCtcd=34

and in Korean, where his name is recorded as 李舜臣 and 이순신.

(http://www.heritage.go.kr/heri/cul/culSelectDetail.do?region=1&searchCondition=&searchCondition2=&s_ kdcd=00&s_ctcd=00&ccbaKdcd=12&ccbaAsno=03260000&ccbaCtcd=34&ccbaCpno=1123403260000&ccbaCndt=&stCcba Asno=326&endCcbaAsno=326&stCcbaAsdt=&endCcbaAsdt=&ccbaPcd1=99&culPageNo=1&chGubun=&header=view&retu rnUrl=%2Fheri%2Fcul%2FculSelectViewList.do&sCond=)

This website about the Dongui bogam gives Heo Jun's name as 허준(許浚)(click on the English flag to get the text and a horible text-to-speech voice https://m.cha.go.kr/mobileApp/heri/cul/culSelectDetail.do?VdkVgwKey=11,03190300,11&pageNo=77010000)

Jun - was the given name of Heo jun 1537/39-1615, a well known male court physician in the Joseon court (see attached documentation)

There is a dearth of readily accessible English language resources for historical Korean names, but Heo Jun authored a medical text that has its own UNESCO listing, which establishes that it was published in 1613 (solidly within the grey area, given that he was an adult when it was published) and includes the same transliteration of his name that I am seeking to register in its listing. http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/memory-of-the-world/register/full-list-of -registered-heritage/registered-heritage-page-2/donguibogam-principles-and-practice-of-eastern-medi cine/

The Library of Congress's guide to the romanisation of Korean says:

https://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/romanization/korean.pdf

p. 13

"The surnames 李 and 異, written in Hangul as 리 or 이, are always romanized as Yi no matter how they are written."

and

준 is romanised in their PDF as "Jun" in the name 국립 국어 연구원. 표준 국어 대사전/Kungnip Kugŏ Yŏn'guwŏn. P'yojun Kugŏ taesajŏn.

So, 李浚/이준 = "Yi Jun"

--

There was a concern brought up that Yi Jun may be too significant an individual to allow this submission. I apologize for copy pasta, but in this case I did not feel I could shorten it with summary:

Adelaide de Beaumont (Pympernell) at 2018-04-18 19:17:04

There was a Korean diplomat named Yi Jun, for whom the Yi Jun Peace Museum in the Hague is named. I believe he meets the encyclopedia test for fame. https://denhaag.com/en/location/478/yi-jun-peace-museum

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-04-19 01:02:35

Mistress Adelaide's citation does not show that the diplomat meets the encylopedia test of http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN4D1. A monument is not an entry, nor does https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yi_Tjoune#Legacy, which notes the conversion of the hotel in the Hague where he died into a private museum, count as print.

But even if it did, SENA requires that "Individuals who do have an entry [in a print encyclopedia] must be further considered." Yi Jun was not among "Sovereign rulers of significant states". Given the Western bias of our membership, and the small proportion of those who are Dutch, it seems vanishingly unlikely that he's among "Individuals whose names are recognized by a significant number of people in the Society without having to look them up in a reference".

That leaves "Individuals whose work and/or life are still influential today ... whose work significantly shaped the course of world history, science, or the arts." The most laudatory statement I have found, at http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/special/2008/08/178_23958.html, is

Today, Yi is remembered as a national hero in both South and North Korea. Last year, the 100th anniversary of Yi's death was extensively commemorated in The Hague, according to The Hague administration Web site (www.denhaag.com).

But SENA's criterion is world history.

The section suggests "numbers of search engine hits for the individual" as a possibly relevant measure. Searching Google with "yi jun" korean diplomat finds 1.4K hits for me today, where "carrie catt" women's suffrage finds 10.1K and "lucy mcgillicuddy" "i love lucy" finds 14.5K.

I do not believe the name <Yi Jun> is presumptuous under our rules, even if a standard print encyclopedia article could be found.

20: Ongust mac Uuid - Resub Name & New Device

Per bend sinister vert and Or, a brown bear rampant regardant proper maintaining a goblet argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language most important.
Culture (9th century Pictish) most important.

originally submitted name "Oengus Mac Aoidh" which was returned at Kingdom.

(thanks to Coblaith for the doc summary, copied here)

Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn's A Consideration of Pictish Names. (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/pictnames/pict3_4, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/pictnames/pict5.html#section5).

It presents "Ongust" as a standardized, reconstructed 6th century form of a masculine given name, and says of such reconstructions, "Ideally, actual cited forms from the data should be used in preference to these, but the table of forms can be used to guide the choice of spellings compatible with earlier or later periods." The cited forms include "Oinuist", "Onnist", "Onuis", "Uidnuist", "Unuist", and "Vnuist".

It presents "Uuid" as a standardized 6th century form, taken from an Irish source, of a masculine given name found only in patronyms, and warns, "Keep in mind that the fathers of Pictish kings may not themselves have been Pictish."

It lists {given name} mac {father's name} as one "basic 'historic era' name construction", but goes on to say, "'Mac' is the Gaelic patronymic marker and would have come into use with the gradual Gaelicization of Pictish culture. It almost certainly would not have been in common use in the 6th century, and almost certainly _would_ have been in common use towards the 8th century."

--

Submitter is aware of the Pictish language issues versus what he has requested, but prefers the form submitted.

Device originally submitted with name "Oengus Mac Aoidh" which was returned at the Kingdom level.

28: Sofia Patrekieva - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2014, via Ansteorra.

Or, a raven rising sable maintaining in its claws a ring purpure, on a chief gules a sun Or

This aresubmission of two returns at Laurel.

[August 2014 LoAR, R-Ansteorra] Sofia Patrekieva. Device. Or, a raven rising sable maintaining in its claws a gem ring argent, on a chief gules a sun Or.

This is returned for non-period style. Blazoned on the LoI as a gem, the charge attached to the ring is actually a brilliant cut gemstone. Precedent says:

The device is returned for non-period style. Blazoned on the LoI as a set cut gemstone, the charge in base appears rather to be a brilliant cut gemstone. Our rules (RfS VII.3) allow artifacts known in the period and domain of the Society to be registered as armorial elements provided they are depicted in their period forms. The brilliant cut, being developed in the 17th Century, is post-period and not registerable.

The other problem is that the gemstone is in profile. Batonvert noted: "However, be it known that my sole example in period heraldry of a gemstone used as an independent charge (i.e., not attached to a ring or other piece of jewelry), in the civic arms of Beihlstein (Siebmacher 226), shows the gem from above, not in profile. A set gem would be likewise seen from above. Neither in its natural setting (as it were) nor in heraldry would a gemstone be seen in profile. Granted that we've registered gemstones in profile once before (in the arms of Theresa Yolanda Cabeza de Vaca, April 2005), it remains a poor practice, and I see no reason to perpetuate it." Theresa's device was blazoned Argent, two chevronels braced and on a chief rayonny sable three faceted gemstones in profile argent. However, she also submitted documentation showing that style of gem cut (with a flat top, or table, with eight supplementary facets) was developed in 1380. No such documentation has been adduced here.

A non-period cut for a gemstone is not registerable. Depicting a gemstone in profile is a step from period practice. [Taran MacThamhais, Feb 2007, R-Northshield]

This submission has the same problem, and is therefore returned for the same reason.

[Agusut 2016 LoAR, R-Ansteorra] Sofia Patrekieva. Device. Or, a raven rising sable maintaining an annulet argent, on a chief gules a sun Or.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Because of its lack of contrast, small size and significant overlap by the raven's foot, the maintained ring loses identifiability. This issue was not raised at the time of the previous return in 2014 because at that time maintained charges had more latitude with regard to contrast and identifiability. However, the precedent of August 2015, which allows maintained charges to contribute for difference also requires that maintained charges have to be identifiable and have good contrast or else be cause for return.
