1: Alienor de Salignac - New Name & New Device

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Alienor is a female given name mentioned in:

Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources (http://dmnes.org/name/Eleanor) (see #1):

The name of Eleanor of Aquitaine, known as Provençal as <Alienor>, is often explained as Latin alia 'other' + Aenor, the name of her mother, but as there are possibly examples which pre-date her, this cannot be the complete story.

de Salignac is a locative byname found in:

Names Found in Commercial Documents from Bordeaux, 1470-1520 by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/bordeaux.html):

Guillaume <de Salignac>

Or, three trees eradicated and a chief embattled vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.

The submitter mentions that his persona is from the 11th century France.

Aymar is a male given name found in:

Names from the Cartularium of Saint Aymar, Abbot of Clugny by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/clugny.html):

Volume one of Preuves de l'Histoire de la Maison d'Auvergne in the first chapter contains extracts from the cartulaire of Saint <Aymar>, abbot of Clugny, with records from the 9th and 10th centuries.

Dictionnaire de la Noblesse By François Alexandre Aubert de la Chenaye Desbois, a book about French nobility, confirms the name to be as old as at least 1289.

3: Büjeg Cheretei - New Name

No major changes.
Language (Mongolian, Ilkhanate) most important.
Culture (Mongolian, Ilkhanate) most important.

Büjeg is dated to circa 1240 AD based on:

The Secret History of the Mongols translated by Francis Woodman Cleaves, Index Nominum p. 235 (http://altaica.ru/SECRET/cleaves_shI.pdf):

Büǰeg (a general in the Orusud campaign)

Note: Originally submitted as Cherentai with the following documentation

<Cheren> is a byname meaning long life. The addition of the <-tai> ending is consistent with the meaning "one who is/has the characteristic". Both are mentioned in:

On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names by Baras-aghur Naran (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongol.html)

This Mongolian name is formed according to the patterns found in On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names by Baras-aghur Naran (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/baras-aghur/mongolian.html). This name is of the pattern name+descriptive.

-----

During kingdom commentary, Palimpsest Herald noted: Following the information at Lingua Mongolia, the second name here should be <Cheretei>:

http://www.linguamongolia.com/noun1.html#tai

The <-n> is dropped when forming a compound, and the suffix should be <-tei> rather than <-tai> because Mongolian grammar requires vowel harmony.

-----

All name elements are found in the same language, and within 500 years of each other, as required by SENA Appendix C.

4: Cornelia vom Distelfeld - New Name & New Device

Gules, three chevronels braced and a chief Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Cornelia is a female given name found in:

Brieven en Andere Bescheiden Betreffende Daniel Van der Meulen, 1584-1600: Deel 1, Augustus 1584-September 1585 by Daniel van der Meulen, listed in Names from Dutch Records Between 1584-1585 by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/dutch/vandermeulen.html):

9 instances of <Cornelia>, Dutch and Italian.

vom rather than "von" is intentional, to make it a local toponymic byname rather than a locative based on a place name, as in Appendix A. This is attested in combination with a landscape feature, for example, in Codex Manesse Plate 106 (http://www.casabellini.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/manesse-codex-106.jpg):

10: Elzebeth Múnserin - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Drachenwald LoI of October 31, 2016 as submitted.

Azure, a hedgehog Or its quills impaling grapes purpure.

There are two potential conflicts:

Miguel de Granada: Azure, a hedgehog reguardant between three broadarrows Or. (June of 2014 via Caid)

Xena Baxter Wynthorpe: Vert, a hedgehog statant Or. (March of 1984 via Caid)

We think that the impaled purpure grapes are equivalent to a maintained charge, which under current rules would count for difference, therefore clearing the conflicts.
