Calontir LoI dated 2016-10-31

Buenas días to the Society Sovereigns of Arms, and the esteemed Laurel staff from Shandra Saker.

Herein is our Letter of Intent for consideration, based upon the commentary of many esteemed heralds from around the Known World. The Calontir College of Heralds requests the registration of the following items:

This item was on the 01-2017 LoAR

1: Ana Elena de Castil - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2015, via Calontir.

Per chevron throughout sable and gules, two eagles and a cross of Santiago Or

Original device returned on the 2/2016 LoAR:

Device. Sable, on a pile inverted throughout gules fimbriated between two eagles a cross of Santiago Or.

Although blazoned on the letter of intent as Sable, on a pile inverted throughout gules fimbriated between two eagles a cross of Santiago Or, this device can also be blazoned as Per chevron throughout sable and gules, a chevron throughout between two eagles and a cross of Santiago Or. Since we have to consider conflict under any possibly registerable blazon, this device is returned for conflict with the device of Máel Dúin Dubh mac Diarmada: Per chevron sable and gules, a chevron between three mullets Or. There is only one DC for the type of the secondary charge group.

A PotC has been proved (in the packet) for Alfarr Utherson: "Per chevron sable and gules, two portcullises and a cross gurgity Or."

2: Aranwen ferch Cadwethen - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Aranwen - Currently registerable per the 9/2011 LoAR:

[sic] we have large numbers of names that date to early forms of Welsh and British that are only recorded in later medieval Welsh forms. Therefore, we will allow the registration of medieval Welsh forms of earlier names, though we encourage the use of the older forms where they can be found or constructed.

In the case of Aranwen, we are speaking of a figure about whom Harpy says:

The only pre-16th c. Arianwen that we have any evidence for is the woman included among the lists of Brychan Brycheiniog's daughter-saints in medieval and later genealogies. The association with Brychan would give her a 5th century date, but the husband attributed to her in the manuscripts would place her instead in the 8th century (with the relationship to Brychan being a fictitious addition).

Therefore, we can treat this name as either a 5th century name or an 8th century name, with the latter somewhat more likely.

(Fieldless) A cockatrice displayed Or sustaining a needle bendwise argent threaded vert

Original badge returned on the 2/2016 LoAR, we believe this redraw fixes the contrast issue:

Badge. Gules, a cockatrice displayed Or maintaining a needle bendwise argent threaded vert.

This device is returned for contrast issues. As depicted, the thread has very poor contrast with the field, which impairs identifiability.

Correction to Badge (2016-Nov-01 07:11:43): If that is a resubmission no fees are due to Laurel and it should be entered in OSCAR as such.
