1: Adelyna Loveday - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2016, via Meridies.

Gyronny gules and argent, a sun in its splendor and on a point pointed Or a heart gules.

The original submission, "Per fess Or and gules, a sun in its splendor counterchanged" was returned by Kingdom in December 2015.

Must be returned for further work. Returned for conflict with the following: Bonifatius Eburhard.

The following badge associated with this name was registered in February of 2003 (via AEthelmearc): Per chevron Or and gules, a sun in its splendor counterchanged.

Receives 1 DC for field change.

The previous resubmission, Per pale gules and argent, a sun in its splendor and in base a point pointed Or charged with a heart gules, was withdrawn by the submitter in August 2016 after it was published on the August Internal Letter of Intent.

*****a redraw was suggested due to the point being very very small. this drawing is what was approved by the submitter and blazon corrected from a base pointed to a point pointed


2: Aleydis Van Sande - New Name & New Device

Argent, a swan naiant sable and on a chief embattled gules three tulip blossoms argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

Aleydis - given name documentable to the Duchy of Brabant, 1312. It is a variant of "Alice". http://dmnes.org/name/Alice

Found originally in L. Galesloot, ed., "Le Livre des Feudataires de Jean III, Duc de Brabant", Bruxelles: M. Hayez, 1865, p.11. Scan included below.

van Sande - Dutch surname documented to 1422, via the article "15th Century Dutch Surnames" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelman). http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/dutch/dutch15surnames.html. Scan included below.

*****During commentary a wrong page in "Le Livre des Feudataires de Jean III, Duc de Brabant" was sited. the submitter was able to provide the right page and the correction in the documentation summary was made.

*****Orginally submitted as "Argent, a swan sable and on a chief embattled gules three tulip blossoms argent" this device was reblazon to add the posture naiant since the swan is not in the default rousant

3: Bernhardt von Eschenbach - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Meridies LoI of September 30, 2015 as submitted.

Quarterly gules and vert, in pale an increscent Or and an elephant maintaining a tower on its back argent.

Previous submission, Quarterly gules and vert, in pale a crescent bendwise sinister Or and an elephant maintaining a tower on its back argent, was returned by Laurel in February of 2016.

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation". The charges here are not in a unified arrangement, as the orientations of the crescent and of the elephant must be described independently.

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Argent, on a pale sable between a pair of arrows inverted and in chief two mullets sable, an arrow inverted and in chief a mullet argent

The owner of the above blazoned badge, Eckhart von Eschenbach, wishes to transfer this badge to the Kingdom of Meridies.

I, <mundane name omitted>, known in the SCA as Eckhart von Eschenbach, do transfer to the Kingdom of Meridies the following badge: "Argent, on a pale sable between a pair of arrows inverted and in chief two mullets sable, an arrow inverted and in chief a mullet argent". I understand that this transfer cannot be withdrawn once made.

Signed 9/10/2016

5: Elina de Isigny - New Name & New Device

Argent, a tree blasted and eradicated vert and a bordure purpure a seme of butterflies argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

Elina - Given name found via FamilySearch.org, "England Deaths and Burials 1538-1991", http://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JZ87-521. "Elina, 10 Jun 1572; citing Birchington, England, reference 3-9; FHL microfilm 1,736,526".

de Isigny - Locative byname, meaning "from Isigney". Isigney is a canton in Normandy, now Isigny-sur-Mer. Forms of this locative name are found in the articles "Dated Placenames from Lincolnshire" by Gunnvör silfrahárr (Christie L. Ward) and Talan Gwynek (Brian M. Scott)<https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/gunnvor/LincolnshirePlacenames/Lincolnshire3.htm#n> and "Dictionary of Tudor London Names" by Sara L. Uckelman, p.151 <http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/tudorlondon.pdf>, as "Norton de Isney(1299)/Norton Isney(1331)" and "Dysney - loc. from Isigny (1576/1582)", respectively.

**********Originally submitted as Elina De Isigney documentation supported "Isigny" more strongly. after speaking with the submitter the no major changes was released and submitter agreed to "de Isigny". De was also changed to de to fix grammar

*****Originally submitted as "Argent, a tree blasted and eradicated vert and a bordure purpure a seme of butterflies displayed argent." Butterfiles are displayed by default so the word was removed from the blazon


6: Elric Osmond - New Name & New Device

Per pall inverted azure, Or, and gules, two wolves rampant addorsed counterchanged and a maple leaf inverted argent.

Elric - Given name documented from Searle, p.226, dated to 863. It appears the name is used later than the date given as well. R&W, p.6, s.n. Aldrich, gives us Elricus. No date is given but it is from the "Dane Law", between 1066 and 1279.

Osmond - Found as a header name once in Men's Given Names from Early 13th Century England by Talan Gwynek. https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/eng13/eng13m.html


7: Ingvarr Pétsson - New Name & New Device

Per pall inverted gules, purpure, and Or, a bear and boar rampant combatant argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (11th Century Norse) most important.

Ingvarr - Found in "The Old Norse Name" by Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p.12, s.n. Ingvarr

Pétsson - Patronymic formed from the given name Pétr, found in "The Old Norse Name" by Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p.14, s.n. Pétr.

*****A redraw was corrected to correct the color shading of the Or and to thin the line of division. the submitter approved of this redraw


8: Meridies, Kingdom of - New Acceptance of Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Argent, on a pale sable between a pair of arrows inverted and in chief two mullets sable, an arrow inverted and in chief a mullet argent

We, <mundane names omitted>, known in the SCA as Adhemar de Rouen and Elina de Rouen, current Sovereign and Consort of Meridies, do accept the transfer from <mundane name omitted>, known in the SCA as Eckhart von Eschenbach, the following badge: "Argent, on a pale sable between a pair of arrows inverted and in chief two mullets sable, an arrow inverted and in chief a mullet argent" as a badge. We understand that this transfer cannot be withdrawn once made.

Signed 9/10/2016


9: Ysan Layla - Resub Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Argent, on a pall sable a barn owl displayed argent in chief a mullet of six points sable.

Previous device, Argent, on a pall sable an owl striking affronty argent, in chief a rondel sable was returned by Laurel in August 1999.

The owl on the pall was not displayed, as listed on the letter of intent, but striking affronty. That position is not allowed as it is not found in period heraldry and is inherently three dimensional.

Had the owl been drawn displayed, the unusual arrangement of the arms on the pile may still have been returnable, as such a drawing would probably not be reproducible.
