Christian Jorgensen af Hilsonger at 2017-12-22 01:37:59
I find no conflicts as presented

Amanda Martel at 2018-01-11 02:38:32
From what I can tell, the documentation checks out on linguistic and temporal marks. No conflicts found, closest was <Æsa Væna> but I think they're far enough apart to pass.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-01-11 08:17:18
Definitely no conflict.

Notes for device from Kingdom

Blazon changed from "Per chevron sable and vert, two wolfs combatant and a sheaf of arrows argent." to "Per chevron sable and vert, two wolves combatant and a sheaf of arrows argent".

Blazon changed from "Azure, a rabbit courant and a bordure argent a seme of Hungerford knots azure." to "Azure, a rabbit courant argent and a bordure argent semy of Hungerford knots azure.".

Padraig Lowther at 2017-12-28 23:55:45

No conflicts found. Close call: Sionán Ó Cruimin <Sable, a rabbit statant, a bordure argent.> - 1 DC for field, 1 DC for the semy on the bordure. SENA lists statant and courant as the same group.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2005, via Lochac.

Consulting Herald Drusticc inigena Eddarrnonn

Notes from Kingdom

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2017-12-25 16:57:42
Isn't there a rule against multiple types of complexity on the same line of division?

Drusticc inigena Eddarrnonn at 2017-12-25 17:07:58
"[a chief enarched and invected] To quote from the LoAR of June 1997, "While it is true that lines could be enarched and also embattled, engrailed, et cetera, the enarching was basically to show the curvature of the shield". Enarched lines are an exception to the general practice of disallowing the combination of two different complex lines of partition into one line of partition, so this enarched and invected chief may be accepted. [Justinian the Gentle, May 02, A-Outlands]"

Padraig Lowther at 2017-12-29 00:03:47
I find this to be clear of conflict, though I'd hate to paint or embroider this onto anything.

(Fieldless) a Canterbury cross argent

Consulting Herald Fiora Vespucci

Notes from Kingdom

Amanda Martel at 2018-01-11 02:59:02
Close calls found, though happily the Canterbury cross seems to have good clear space among its cruciform friends.

Meleri verch Adam <(Fieldless) A Canterbury cross argent, charged with a Bowen knot gules.>

Branwen Madyn Wallis <(Fieldless) A cross of Canterbury argent each arm charged with an ermine spot head to center sable.>

Each is clear by 1 DC for fieldless, 1 DC for the tertiary charge(s) (though this is so close that I'd want to know about it were I the submitter.)

Caitlyn O'Duirnin and Ranulf of Waterford <(Fieldless) A Canterbury cross per pale gules and argent.> - 1 DC for fieldless, 1 DC for tincture of half.

Device Notes from Kingdom

Blazon was changed from "Per chevron inverted gules and vert, a chevron inverted argent and in chief a boar's head Or." to "Per chevron inverted gules and vert, a chevron inverted argent and in chief a boar's head cabossed Or.".

Karl Faustus von Aachen at 2017-12-21 05:37:22
I didn't pick that as a boar's head. I think it's been elongated too much. Actually, I thought it was Beta Ray Bill from the Thor comics...

Fiora Vespucci at 2017-12-21 12:18:16
Agreed; I wouldn't have known what this charge was without the blazon.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-12-21 23:06:08
I immediately saw it glaring at me.

Iago ab Adam at 2017-12-21 23:09:43
I didn't have any issue recognizing it.

9: John Longschankes the Grey - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2010, via Lochac.

Vert, a garb and in chief five mullets of four points in chevron Or.

Consulting Herald Glynnis Hollindaleaka

Notes from Kingdom

The blazon was changed from "Vert, a garb within 5 mullets of 4 points in chevron Or" to "Vert, a garb and in chief five mullets of four points in chevron Or.".

Thomasine Lestrange at 2017-12-21 06:32:02
Not sure if the mullets should be so high up given they're supposed to be in chevron? Will leave to far more experienced heralds.

Glynyhvar of River Haven at 2017-12-27 09:43:36
I had thought to say the chevron was enhanced, but will also leave it to more experienced heralds.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2018-01-14 20:51:07
If the garb is primary then no conflicts. If the charges are co-primary then there may be SENA Unity of Posture and Orientation problems.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-01-14 21:20:13
I don't see them being co-primary under Appendix I, section A. Is there in fact a plausible argument that they are?

Gunther Boese (Rocket) at 2018-01-15 00:57:58
Primary and secondary for certain not co primary.

12: Merlin Grindall le Chat - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name on the Lochac LoI of September 24, 2017 as submitted.

Guðfinna járnhǫnd Kattarskeggr

No changes.

Consulting Herald ffride wlffsdotter

Guðfinna
Feminine name, Lind col. 372, sn. Guðfinna

járnhǫnd
Constructed byname meaning "iron-hand." First, we need to show there is a pattern of bynames that are are <iron>+<body part>:

Lind Personbinamn col. 176
sn. iárnauga - "iron-eye"
sn. iárnbúkr - "iron-trunk"/"iron-body"
sn. iárnhauss - "iron-skull"
sn. iárnhryggr - "iron-spine"
Note that Lind does not distinguish between vowel i and consonantal i, but Cleasby-Vigfusson does.

and secondly, to show what the body part known as a hand is in Old Norse, Cleasby-Vigfusson's dictionary, sn. "hönd" glosses the word as "hand," and sn. járn (with a consonantal j) gives us "járnhǫnd."

Kattarskeggr
Constructed byname meaning "cat's beard." First, we need to show there is a pattern of bynames that are <animal's>+<beard>:
Lind Personbinamn col. 106
sn. Geit (goat)
sn. Geitskegg (goat's-beard)

Lind Personbinamn col. 249
sn. Lúsa (lice)
sn. Lúsarskegg (lice's-beard)

Lind Personbinamn col. 292
sn. Refr (fox)
sn. Refskegg (fox's-beard)

And the byname "cat":
Lind Personbinamn col. 233
sn. Kǫttr, genitive Kattar.


13: Rúna Hundadottir - New Name

Language (Viking) most important.
Culture (Viking) most important.
Meaning (Viking) most important.

Rúna
Is found in the "nordiskt runnamnslexikon" page 185.

Hundadottir
Is found in "[Geirr Bassi] Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. The Old Norse Name." a no photocopy source.

Name Notes from Kingdom

ffride wlffsdotter at 2017-12-28 23:53:12
Tweaking the byname documentation:
Hundi, masculine name, Geirr Bassi p. 11. The expected genitive Hunda, can be combined with the standard patronymic marker -dóttir, to make "Hundadóttir." If the submitter wants Rúna with an -ú-, I would lean towards adding the -ó- back in. But the other option would be "Runa Hundadottir."

Brían dorcha ua Conaill at 2017-12-29 01:10:37
If the submitter is interested, <Rúna> is the feminine of rún, and means "secret" or "rune", and <Hundi> is cognate with "hound".

14: Saint Cecilia, College of - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 1992, via the West.

(Fieldless) In saltire an organ pipe vert and another Or

Consulting Herald ffride wlffsdotter

Saint Cecilia, the college's patron saint, is depicted in renaissance art with a pipe organ. Hence why the unusual charge of organ pipes appears on the submitted badge.

Notes from Kingdom
