An illustration of mermaids/sirens with similar lower bodies to what is depicted in the emblazon. "These mermaids were pictured with a body half maiden (from the waist up) and half fish, with wings and nails, and they were extraordinarily skilled to sing."

Guillaume le Clerc: Bestiaire, 13th century (http://bestiary.ca/beasts/beast246.htm):

"The siren is a monster of strange fashion, for from the waist up it is the most beautiful thing in the world, formed in the shape of a woman. The rest of the body is like a fish or a bird."

An illustration with description: "Some illustrations show the uncertainty of whether sirens are part fish or part bird by giving them attributes of both; the siren in Kongelige Bibliotek, Gl. kgl. S. 3466 8º (f. 37r) has a fish tail and stands on bird's feet."

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Knight's Crossing, Barony of in February of 1982, via the East.

Raven's Beak, Order of the

No major changes.
Meaning most important.

This order name follows the pattern of orders named after a charge, identified in 'Medieval Secular Order Names' by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

<Order> is a registrable designator (SENA Appendix E).

<Raven's Beak>

'Medieval Armies and Weapons in Western Europe: An Illustrated History' by Jean-Denis G.G. Lepage; page 86' (https://books.google.fi/books?id=bM57BwAAQBAJ&pg=PA86):

Raven's beak, also known as bec de corbin (old French) is a type of war hammer popular from the 14th century to 16th century in Europe. It combines the elements of a cut, thrust and pole weapon.

There is an example of the charge bec de corbin being registered in the Society (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=43081):

Alexia of Thessalonica

The following device associated with this name was registered in July of 2015 (via Gleann Abhann):

Per bend Or and purpure, a bec de corbin bendwise vert and a whelk bendwise Or.

When looking at the order name examples that follow the pattern (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/ListingOfStandardForms.html#AllCharge), it can be seen that the typical way in naming is to use either the common name in the local language or latin of the charge, rather than formal blazon. Thus we propose that translating the name of the charge from old french to the society's lingua franca follows the period practice.
