9: Kristrøðr Eldrimsson - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

10: Paul Spearbreaker - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Caid.

Quarterly sable and gules, an open face helm and in chief a broken spear in chevron

Original submission was returned on the November 2014 LOAR:

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "A charge group in which postures for different charges must be blazoned individually will not be allowed without period examples of that combination of postures." The charges here are not in a unified arrangement, as the fracted spears must be blazoned independently with one "in chevron" and the other "in chevron inverted". Having both "in chevron" or both "in chevron inverted" would solve that issue.

This redesign addresses the reason for return. The college has notified the submitter that the eye holes should be gold.

11: Sofia Biarnardottir - New Name & New Device

Ermine, on a bend between two hearts purpure three hearts argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Sofia is the submitter's legal given name as attested by her father and Avicia de Na Baiona, both warranted heralds

From the Viking Answer Lady's "Old Norse Names: Surnames: Patronymics and Matronymics" ( "Mens' names that end in -biörn ("bear") or -örn ("eagle") change form slightly in the genitive, becoming -biarnar and -arnar."

12: Titus Furius Victorinus - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Caid LoI of September 30, 2017 as submitted.
