2: Ivan syn Irina -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister Or and purpure, in fess two fish skeletons palewise counterchanged.

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

This is a Russian name using a metronymic that has used the unmarked form of the name with "syn" (meaning "son"; Wickenden states that "To summarize, the following names (amongst others) could plausibly have been derived for the son of Ivan Guba" and then lists the form (given name) Ivan syn. Thus we have for this submission "Ivan syn Irina".

Ioann (m) -- The Russianization of John (God is gracious) and one of the most common given names. Both the older form (Ioann) and the newer (Ivan)

are common in period.

Ioann, son of Ivan the Terrible. 1558. [RIB XII 129].
