Bendy argent and azure, a raven volant sable

March 2016 Laurel return of "Bendy azure and argent, a raven volant bendwise wings addorsed sable"

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." As depicted, the raven is not easily identifiable, an issue which is amplified by the fact that a significant portion of the sable bird disappears on the azure portions of the field.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2009, via Atlantia.

Mallard Lodge

Azure, a saltaire argent, in pale a plate charged with a duck head couped vert, and a plate charged with a thistle proper

Mallard: is found "16th Century Gloucestershire Names" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelman) http://heraldry.sca.org/names/english/late16.html. Mallard is a surname with 1 documented instance.

Lodge: There's some evidence of the pattern of "Xs Lodge" as a household designator. Se Sythe Blackwolfe, December 2007 LoAR: "The question was raised whether names of the form House + [place name] followed a pattern found in English names for groups of organized people. We have found no examples of this pattern. However, we have some examples of the pattern [place name] + [house/hall/lodge]. All examples below are from John Norden, Speculum Britanniae. The first parte an historicall, & chorographicall discription of Middlesex. Wherin are also alphabeticallie sett downe, the names of hte cyties, townes, parishes hamletes, howses of name &c. T.th [sic] direction spedelie to finde anie place desired in the mappe & athe distance betwene place and place without compasses. Cum priuilegio. By the trauaile and vew of Iohn Norden. Anno 1593. Names include Enfield house (located in Enfield), Northals lodge (in Northals), and Lambeth house (near Lambeth), and Westminster Hall (in Westminster). There are several other examples based on either a territorial title or the surname of the original builder (in very few cases does the name of the listed resident match the name of the house). Examples include Augustines Lodge, Buls Lodge, Bufhoppes hall, New hall, Hendon house, Bassings hall, Heneage House, Schrewsburye house, More hall, Durham house (built by the bishop of Durham), and Burghley house (built by Lord Burghley). Given this, we would recommend late period household names following either of these patterns [surname] + [house or hall], [surname]+s + [house, hall or lodge], [place name] + [house, hall, or lodge].

15: Ríoghnach inghean Uí Clérigh - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for Irish.

Ríoghnach: Etymologically, <Rígnach> (OIr) or <Ríoghnach> (EModIr) is "rígan" (queen) + "-ach" (adjectival suffix), meaning "queenly". This is supposed to have been one of the wives of Niall of the Nine Hostages, but his reign is old enough (d. mid. 5C) to be practically legendary. The Martyrology of Oengus doesn't appear to have either Saint Rignach, but the Martyrology of Donegal has both.

Ríoghnach: is also found in "Genealogies from Rawlinson B 502" Author is unknown. http://www.ucc.ie/celt/online/G105003.html. ¶172] Téora nóebh-uaga Úa Lóscán: Cercc h-óg h-i Cnoitti & Tailech máthair Finnia moccu Tellaich & Rígnach h-i Cill Rígnaige h-i Fothartaib Mara.

Ríoghnach: is found in "Irish Names and Surnames" by Rev Patrick Woulfe http://www.libraryireland.com/names/women/rioghnach-regina.php . Ríoghnach, genitive -aighe, Regina; the name of a saintly Irish virgin, whose feast was kept on 18 December; she was the sister of St. Finnian of Clonard. Latin -- Regnacia.

Uí Clérigh: is found in the "Annals of the Four Masters" Author is unknown. http://www.ucc.ie/celt/online/T100005A/ . The surname is dated from the mid 10th century to current day.

The name formation is based on "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" by Sharon L. Krossa http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#lenited. Construction for a feminine surname in this form is "inghean <father's surname in genitive>". (Which is: <Righnach inghean Ui Cleirigh> is "Rioghnach, O'Clery's daughter".) Inghean and Ui are the post 1200s forms of the patronymic markers. The articles states father's name must be in the genitive and is sometimes lenited. Brian, Rocket has provided documentation from the Annals of the Four Masters showing that sometimes female names are lenited and sometimes they are not.

17: `Atikah al-Isfahaniyyah - Resub Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in January of 1995, via Atlantia.

Old Item: Anthea of Isenfir, to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.

Name Submission History:
January 1995 Laurel return of "Atesh al-Nasmeh bint Omer"

There are a couple of problems with the name. The first is the lack of any documentation for the byname "the little breeze" either as a name element or for the translation. No sources were cited nor were any photocopies enclosed. (Atesh appears to be a reasonable transliteration of the Turkish Ates; Omer, however, should be Ömer; the umlaut does modify the pronunciation.) The name also does not appear to be properly formed for Turkish, which the language of the remainder of the name would require. Turkish does not appear to have used the Arabic bint in patronymic formations. I'm afraid we need more documentation before we can register this.

`Atikah is found in the article "Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices" by Da'ud ibn Auda <http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm>.

al-Isfahani: is found in "The Compleat Anachronist #51" by Cariadoc of the Bow, Khaalid al Jaraad and Da'ud ibn Auda (2001). al-Isfahani is listed as geographical hisba, derived from the place of residence or birth, e.g., Yusuf al-Isfahani [Joseph of Isfahan]. As per "Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices" by by Da'ud ibn Auda (David B. Appleton). http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm. Masculine cognomens ending in "i" may generally be feminized by changing the finial "i" to "iyya" or "iyyah". (Cognomens, as such term is used herein, consist primarily of laqabs and nisbas; for more on which, see below.)

(Golden Dolphin Note: Name submitted as `Atikah al-Isfahaniyya, The name was changed by kingdom because Tala al-Zahra stated in commentary if the given name `Atikah ends in H then the surname must match and end in H as well. Submitter allows all changes.)
