Angharad (600AD)

"Based on Rhydderch's assigned date, she would presumably belong roughly to the late-mid 6th century... she appears to be the earliest known instance of the name Angharad, although Bartrum (WCD) lists a near explosion of women with the name in the 9-10th century, and it was extremely popular in the later medieval period."

Academy of St Gabriel -

This spelling is also found in Withycombe, dated to 1207.

Rheged is the name of a Brythonic kingdom. Urien Rheged (king of Rheged) is mentioned in "Names of Women of the Brythonic North in the 5-7th Centuries" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn.

5: Rachel of Saint Monica - New Release of Name (KLoI) (NP)

I, (name redacted), known in the SCA as Rúnfríðr Keiliselgr, hereby release my registered name Rachel of Saint Monica. I understand that this release of registration in permanent.

7/7/23 (signature)

Rúnfríðr Keiliselgr was accidentally registered as a new primary name without releasing or changing the registration of Rachel of Saint Monica, so both registrations are currently listed as separate primary names. The submitter would like her current device, Azure, on a cross nowy between in chief two trilliums inverted argent a triquetra purpure, to be attached to the name Rúnfríðr Keiliselgr.

Kingdom Notes

- As this is both a release of name and a transfer of device (albeit to a name held by the same person), some commenters had doubts about whether it could be achieved with a single item. Advice on how this situation should be handled would be welcome.

I remain,

Sigrith parði

Rocket Herald
