Consulting herald: Rose Harless

This badge was returned on the 4/2018 LoAR: "This badge is returned for lack of documentation. No evidence was provided, and none could be found, for armorial depictions of insects in profile in any posture other than statant. As they are non-quadrupedal, insects are unable to be statant erect, which is an explicitly quadrupedal posture.

Upon resubmission, please consult the device of Takayama Hitoshi, Sable, a mantis statant between three cherry blossoms argent, registered November 2016, for a reasonable depiction of a mantis in profile."

We believe this redraw addresses the issue.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2011, via the East.

House of Darostur

No major changes.
Sound (darrow-stur) most important.

Consulting herald: Lillia de Vaux

Darostur is a constructed English compound placename/locative surname. The pattern of creating such placenames is found in Juliana de Luna's article "Compound Placenames in English" http://medievalscotland.org/jes/EnglishCompoundPlacenames/

Daro- is found as a prototheme of unknown etymology in the inherited surnames Darocott, Darowell, Darowent and Darowood/Darewood, all found in the Family Search Historical Records. Daro- may be derived from the surname Dare or from the OE personal name Dēor (wild animal, deer), found in Watts, s.nn. Daresbury, Darley, Dargate; and R&W sn Dare. Of the examples listed, Darowent is probably from the ME went (way, passage). It could also be related to the town of Went, named after the River Went (Ekwall, s.n. Went)

stur refers to the River Stour or towns named after the river (Ekwall, s.n. Stour; Watts, s.n. River Stour). Although is is most frequently found as a prototheme (eg Watts, Stourbridge, Stourton, Stourpaine) it also is found as a deuterotheme (Estesture, Heststhure, Swanesture). The latter, Swanesture, refers to the River Test, not the River Stour (MED), showing that it can also be found, rarely, as a generic toponym. The spelling Stur is attested as a 13th century toponymic byname.

The pattern of House of <placename> is found in Sharon L Krossa's "A Brief, Incomplete and Rather Stopgap Article about European Household and other Group Names before 1600" http://medievalscotland.org/names/eurohouseholds/index.shtml and in the March 2013 LoAR Cover Letter.

The previous submission "Per fess azure and vert, a badger rampant argent" was been returned at the kingdom level for conflict with the badge of John the Idiota (Atenveldt, Dec 2000 LoAR): "(Fieldless) A wolverine rampant argent." There is one DC for the field. By precedent, there is no difference granted between a wolverine and a badger [Caisséne Merdrech, Nov 2003 LoAR]."
