Ansteorra LoI dated 2017-03-31

Greetings and Salutations to the Sovereigns and College of Arms!

This letter contains submissions from Ansteorra ILoI issued 2017-2-07 and ended 2017-03-10.

Commentary can be found at https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=4345. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

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

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 ( http://baekur.is/en/bok/000197700/3/63/Diplomatarium_Islandicum___Bindi_3_Bls_63 ) 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


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

(http://dmnes.org/name/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 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=990&s=n&str=Gunders%)

Eriker Gwnderson, 1498 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=3297&s=n&str=Gwnders%)

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

Amwndh Gwnderson, 1514 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=3350&s=n&str=Gwnderson)

Biorn Gunderson, 1516 (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=2177&s=n&str=Gunderson)

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).

4: Wyldewode, Canton of - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Ansteorra LoI of October 13, 2016 as submitted.

Or, three chevronels braced vert, a base embattled azure

Badge originally submitted 4/16 http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=3757 was Azure, a savage's head couped affronty Or, which was returned for conflict with the arms of Stockholm.
