Avacal LoI dated 2016-12-31

Greetings unto Laurel, Wreath, Pelican and the College of Arms from Rowyn the Bard, Avacal Submissions Herald. The Avacal College of Heralds would like you to consider the following for registration.

1: Angar Skeggason - New Name & New Device

Sable, a lion passant argent striped sable with a tail nowed and in base a crown Or all within a bordure argent charged with an orle of chain sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Angar: Prototheme "An" supported by PASE (http://pase.ac.uk) with the following examples:
"An"+"fred", ANFRED 1: (m x) Dux, fl. 959, "An"+"frith", ANFRITH 1: (1 xi) Witness, fl 1066; "An"+"na", ANNA 1: (e x) Abbot, fl. 1022

Deutertheme "gar" supported by PASE with the following examples: "Al"+"gar", ALGAR 1: (I xi) Horn, fl, 1081; "Ans"+"gar", ANSGAR 1: (m xi) Persons called "Ansgar" in Doomsday Book: "As"+"gar", ASGAR 1: Minister, fl, 1055.

Therefore a plausible Ango Saxon name can be constructed with <An>+<gar> to form <Angar> as per SENA PN.1B.2B(2).

During commentary, ffride wlffsdotter provided documentation to fully support a plausible variant on the later period Swedish name

SMP sn. Arnger has: http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/Display.aspx?form=smp-sok&item=/Nordiskt/Variationsnamn/Mansnamn/ Arnger,%20Anger/Arnger.pdf)

<Anger j Haquonabygning> 1413

There's a similar loss of -r- in other Arn- names in Sweden, such as:

SMP sn. Arnbiorn (http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/Display.aspx?form=smp-sok&item=/Nordiskt/Variationsnamn/Mansnamn/ Arnbiorn,%20Anbiorn/Arnbiorn.pdf)
"Anbiorn" 1353
"Anbiørn" 1397
SMP sn. Arnfast

(http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/Display.aspx?form=smp-sok&item=/Nordiskt/Variationsnamn/Mansnamn/ Arnfast,%20Arnvast,%20Anfast,%20Anvast/Arnfast.pdf)
"Jon Anfastason: 1461
sn. Arnfin (same link as Arnfast)
"Anfinz a Groheidi" genitive case, 1400s.

For -geirr/-ger to -gar:
SMP sn. Asger http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/Display.aspx?form=smp-sok&item=/Nordiskt/Variationsnamn/Mansnamn/ Asger/Asger.pdf)

"Asgarus Brock", Latin 1341

SMP sn. Holmger

(http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/Display.aspx?form=smp-sok&item=/Nordiskt/Variationsnamn/Mansnamn/ Holmger/Holmger.pdf)

"Hans Holgarsson" genitive, 1471, page 25 of the PDF, 6th line from the top of the page.

from Swedish Feminine Given Names from SMP by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Friedemann) http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/swedish/smp/ingegaerdh.html

"Jngegärdh" 1430 (Gunne) "Jngegerdh" 1435 (Birgher)

"Angärdh" 1487 (Angærdh) "Angerdh" 1487 (Angærdh)

SMP sn. "Radhger"

Is in the unpublished part, so no dates other than "medieval" (http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/marshal-oais/nav/isof/namn/nau/smp/smp-sok)


Thus supporting the constructed name Angar.

Skeggason. "Skeggi" found in Geirr Bassi p 14. To form the patronymic "son of Skeggi" according to Geirr Bassi pg 17, replace the final "i" with "ason" to form "Skeggason".

For the Anglo Saxon constructed name, as per SENA C, Old English + Scandinavian can be combined. Therefore "Angar Skeggason" is a plausible registerable name. With the Scandinavian name, as per SENA, all elements within the same regional group. Therefore still again registerable.

2: Avacal, Kingdom of - New Order Name

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

Griffins Paw, Award of

Griffins: Awsten - England Deaths and Burials, 1538 - 1991, Male, Burial Date 24 Mar 1575, St. Botolph Aldgate, London, England, Batch Number B02101-4.

Paw: Middle English Dictionary http://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/med/lookup.html

s.n. paue (n.) (a) The paw of an animal.

Carillion, Barony of. Order name Order of Irons Bell and badge. (Fieldless) a bell per pale sable and Or. Submitted as Order of Irons Bell, the name was changed in Kingdom to Order of Iron to match the documentation that could be found <Nov 2014 LoAR>

The submitted form was documented as the constructed given name of a saint Iron followed by an object associated with him, a bell. This follows the pattern of Saint + Other in Juliana de Luna's article, "Medieval Secular Order Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/). German examples that use the possessive form of the saint's name are Ritterschaft sant Gergen Shiltz ("Knightly-society of saint George's Shield") and Geselschaft auf St. Wilhelms Schilt ("Society on Saint William's Shield"), in Germany and Austria, respectively. Siren noted after the Pelican decision meeting that separate German orders named after the same saints included the forms Jorgern ("George[rs]") and Die Wilhelmer ("The William[ers]") along with forms using the word "saint". There is no reason to think that the same variability could not happen with order names that include objects as well. Thus, we can allow order names following the pattern saint + other or saint + object of veneration to omit the word Saint before the possessive form of the given name.

Although such examples were found only in Germany, patterns of order names tend to be pan-European (i.e., similar patterns are used throughout Europe). Therefore, we will give the Barony the benefit of the doubt that the submitted name is also plausible in English, and can register this name as submitted.
