The Kingdom of Ansteorra humbly submits for registration the following heraldic items:

This item was on the 06-2017 LoAR

1: Ænghill inn kyrri - New Name & New Device

Azure, on a chevron argent, three lotus flowers affronty purpure

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning most important.

Based on commmentary from ffride in Kingom commentary, the docs have been simplified:

Lind col. 234-5 sn. Engill

Ænghill Assmundarsson, 1321, Jævnaker, Norway.

Lind Personbinamn col. 231 sn. Kyrri

Mentions King Óláfr hinn kyrri Haraldz son, and one of the references is to Diplomatarium Islandicum, volume 3 p. 29 ( ) where it looks to be a listing of Norwegian kings, recorded circa 1312

There, he's recorded as "Olaf[r] hinn kyri," which I suspect would make for a more 14th c. Norse name -- Ænghill hinn kyri.

With that said Óláfr (h)inn kyrri lived ca. 1050 to 1093, so a normalised Old Norse form would be within 500 years of Ænghill, so <Ænghill inn kyrri> should be registerable.

Due to commentary at Kingdom, submitter provided a revised version of her device that cleared concerns about the placement of the chevron and the depiction of the lotus flowers.

2: Augustin Haffner - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2016, via Ansteorra.

Per chevron azure and sable, a chevron argent and overall a tree blasted and eradicated Or

This item was on the 06-2017 LoAR

3: Magnus Gunderson - New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister vert and Or, a bee winged or and a drakkar vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

Based on ffride's commentary in Kingdom, and in consultation with the client, name documents have been updated to ffride's suggestions to provide a Scandinavian/Norwegian name.

DMNES sn. Magnus


magnus (nom), 1500, Iceland

Magnus (nom), 1351, Latin, Sweden

Lind col. 404 sn. Gunnar

Gunder, nominative, Diplomatarium Norvegicum 1446

Gunders, genitive, Diplomatarium Norvegicum 1497

Gwnder[s], genitive, Diplomatarium Norvegicum 1498

Looking in Diplomatarium Norvegicum itself, gets me:

Arne Gundersson, 1497 (

Eriker Gwnderson, 1498 (

Along with the following examples with a single -s-:

Amwndh Gwnderson, 1514 (

Biorn Gunderson, 1516 (

So, a Norwegian "Gunderson" with a single -s- is also plausible. It would be within the Scandinavian language group, so could be combined with the other mentions of Magnus.

Conflict check : Magnus Gunnarsson. This name, registered in November of 2009 (via Ansteorra), was changed to Magnús rauðkinn Haraldsson in July of 2015 (via Artemisia). ( =modern&g=disabled&a=disabled)

Badge originally submitted 4/16 was Azure, a savage's head couped affronty Or, which was returned for conflict with the arms of Stockholm.
