Æthelmearc April 1 LoI dated 2018-04-01

Greetings unto Juliana Laurel, Alys Pelican, Cormac Wreath, and the College of Arms of the Known World from Madoc Garnet and Saiman Cornelian. This is Æ???, April Fool letter of intent. It is in no way the intent of the Garnet office to register the following elements:

1: Boo Bonnick Plage - New Name & New Device

Argent pelletty

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Devastation on population) most important.

Boo: "Sweden Baptisms, 1611-1920," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FKC7-JHC : 9 December 2014), Boo Olufsson, 10 Apr 1627; citing Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden, reference C.a.2 p 36; FHL microfilm 77,816.

Bonnick: "Deutschland Geburten und Taufen, 1558-1898," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NZDK-NJD : 28 November 2014), Barnardus: Bonnick, 27 Dec 1636; citing ; FHL microfilm 872,014.

Plage: "Deutschland Tote und Beerdigungen, 1582-1958," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J47P-T62 : 28 November 2014), Gretcke Plage, 1615; citing 11, reference 11; FHL microfilm 473,379.

Per SENA Appendix C, German and Swedish names are compatible.

Although the use of two given names in Swedish is not registerable by precedent, there is no such precedent barring the use of two bynames.

Gustav was documented as an undated German given name and as a modern rendering of the given names of two Swedish kings. The name Gustav was recently discussed:

German sources make it clear that Gustav was borrowed from Swedish; the College was unable to find evidence that it was used as a German given name before 1600. The spellings Gustaf and Gøstaff are found in Swedish (in Sveriges Medeltida Personnamn, vol. 9 s.n. Gøtstaf). [Gustaf Zizka, 06/2003 LoAR, A-Trimaris]

Lacking evidence of use of any form of Gustav in German in period, this element must be considered Swedish based on the documentation. While two given names are registerable in German, no similar pattern has been found in Swedish in period. As a result, a name using two given names in Swedish is not registerable.

Though there is evidence of unmarked patronymic bynames in German, no such evidence was provided for Swedish names during commentary for this submission. Lacking evidence for unmarked patronymic bynames in Swedish in period, a name combining two given names in Swedish could not be interpreted as a given name followed by a patronymic byname. Sveriges Medeltida Personnamn (vol. 9, column 568, s.n. Gotstaf) dates Swen Gøstafson to 1502. Therefore, this name would be registerable as Sven Gøstafson von Bremen. However, the change from the given name Gustav to the patronymic byname Gøstafson is a major change, which the submitter does not allow. [Sven Gustav von Bremen, 03/2004, R-Calontir]

Given that the translation of plage from modern German is plague, we find it plausible that this name indicates someone named Boo Bonnick who is a survivor of a plague or plague-like disease, and therefore meets the given+byname+descriptive naming construct.
