Grüß Gott!

Unto Juliana de Luna, Laurel; Alys Mackyntoich, Pelican; Cormac Mor, Wreath; and the esteemed members of the College of Arms does Herr Gotfrid von Schwaben, Saker Herolt of the Kingdom of Calontir send heartfelt greetings.

The Calontir College of Heralds presents this Letter of Intent for your consideration requesting registration of the following submissions:

1: Adelheid Vromeke - New Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Per pale purpure and azure, a brazier argent enflamed proper within a bordure argent

DEVICE NOTES:
This is a resub at kingdom. Previous device returned for conflict with Seamus Gillemore (Feb 98, Drachenwald), Sable, a brazier argent flaming Or. There was a DC for the change of field, but the primary charge was 3/4 the same (argent brazier and half the flames Or. This leaft only part of the flames (1/4 of the total charge) changed to gules...and thus not being enough to grant a second DC.

Adding the bordure argent clears the conflict.

This was originally submitted under the name Adelheid Fröhmke. The name was registered as Adelheid Vromeke on the 12/2017 LoAR.

mac patronymic marker

Niocláis: Found 4 times between 1271 - 1489 in Index of Names in Irish Annals: Nioclás, Nicol by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) (https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Nioclas.shtml). No spelling of the genitive form is given. Commentary noted, however, the genitive form of Nioclás is Niocláis, as explained via the October 2009 LoAR [A-Outlands, Róis inghean Niocláis]. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/10/09-10lar.html) Therefore, this name is being submitted with the genitive form.

7: Dmitrii Zinonovich - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of February 06, 2018 as submitted.

Argent, a double-headed eagle sable maintaining a warhammer fesswise inverted within a bordure azure


8: Emerick Jones - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of August 30, 2017 as submitted.

Per pales gules and argent, in pale a lantern and a pair of rapiers in saltire sable

This is a resubmission of a device that was returned on the LoAR of 11/2017. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/11/17-11lar.html#Calontir_returns27)

Per pale gules and argent, in pale a lantern and in saltire two rapiers sable.

This device is returned for using a modern depiction of a lantern, a thin frame with transparent panes. In the return of the device of Domenico Taddio in February 2016, it was ruled "This form of lantern, although used in the past in SCA heraldry is a modern one. Barring documentation, it will not be registerable after the September 2016 meeting."

The Administrative Handbook, Section V.B.2.g, describes how to handle correction of errors. Regarding emblazons, the section states that "If an emblazon image is completely incorrect, it may be replaced within seven days of the publication of the Letter of Intent with a correction noting the replacement." During commentary, revised emblazons were provided which attempted to address the reason for return. Unfortunately, not only did the new artwork fail to address the issue raised in commentary, as the panes were still transparent, showing the field behind, but the emblazons were provided nearly a month after the letter was initially published. The forms bearing the new emblazon were not uploaded until five days before the close of commentary. If this new emblazon was to be considered as a correction, the timing of said correction would preclude its consideration.

However, the timing of the revised emblazon is moot, because the very next sentence of the Administrative Handbook reads "After seven days or if the correction is a redraw of the original emblazon, the associated armorial item should be withdrawn using a correction to the original item and then resubmitted on a new Letter of Intent." It was made clear in commentary that this was a redraw of the original emblazon, created with the intent to address issues raised in commentary. It is, therefore, not eligible for consideration as a correction to the initial submission.

This resubmission is a redraw using artwork found in the online PicDic:

9: Énán mac Niocláis - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

O'Brien) (https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Nioclas.shtml). No spelling of the genitive form is given. Commentary noted, however, the genitive form of Nioclás is Niocláis, as explained via the October 2009 LoAR [A-Outlands, Róis inghean Niocláis]. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/10/09-10lar.html) Therefore, this name is being submitted with the genitive form.

15: Grete Traurnicht - New Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Argent, in fess two thyrsi proper and on a chief vert an arrow fesswise Or

DEVICE NOTES:
Commentary noted the arrow might be considered hard to see, as it may be considered a bit thin. As such, we believe an artist note to beef up the arrow wouldn't be out of line and sufficiently addresses this.


16: Gwenne Margareta Melinnith - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2014, via Calontir.

17: Hugo Smith - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2016, via Calontir.

Sable, a mallet between the points of a stag's attire Or

This is a resubmission of a badge that was returned on the LoAR of 09/2017. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/09/17-09lar.html#Calontir_returns10)

Argent, on a pellet a mallet between the points of a stag's attire Or.

This badge must be returned for use of two different tertiary charge groups on the same charge, in violation of SENA Appendix I, Section C. Commentary was overwhelmingly against interpreting these as co-tertiary charges (that is, that they would be co-primary if appearing on a field rather than on a charge). The motif "a mallet between the points of a stag's attire Or" would not have the same problem if it were directly on the field.

This resubmission takes the advice in the text of the return.


18: Kathryn di Fiamma - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Kathryn: female German given name documented via Family Search entry Kathryn Doigerss, married 1606, Sankt Peter Katholisch, Koeln Stadt, Rheinland, Prussia, batch M96959-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JHDW-TJC)

di Fiamma: Fiamma is an Italian surname dated to 1319 in Italian Family Names from the Online Tratte of Office Holders 1282-1532 by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelmann) (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/tratte/familynames.html)

NAME NOTES:
SENA Appendix C supports German and Italian name combinations.

The construction di Fiamma is preferred by the submitter. We hope that someone can come to the rescue with sufficient documentation.

Kathryn is also the submitter's legal given name. A redacted copy of her ID was received. Perhaps the Legal Name Allowance will make it easier to match documentation for her preferred byname.


19: Lelia Corsini - New Alternate Name

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

Kiyad-un Alaqa

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (preserve the elements of Kiyad & Alaqa) most important.
Culture (Mongolian) most important.

Alaqa: found in the Women's Names section in Mongolian Naming Practices by Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html)

Kiyad: found in the Clan/Tribal Names section, ibid.

Name meta pattern:
-un suffix and name construction pattern from Middle Mongol Grammar for SCA Names by Ursula Georges. Pattern is:

tribe name + genitive suffix + name
hence Kiyad-un Alaqa is Alaqa of the Kiyad. (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolgrammar.html)


20: Piers Fauconer - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

Or, a chevron between three falcons striking to sinister azure

Old Item: Or, a chevron between two gloves azure each charged with a bezant and a falcon striking azure, to be released.


21: Piers Fauconer - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A pair of dividers per pale azure and Or


22: Raleigh MacCaba - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of June 30, 2017 as submitted.

Checky vert and Or, on a bend sinister sable three suns Or

Raleigh's original device was returned on the September 2017 LoAR. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/09/17-09lar.html#Calontir_returns10)

Checky Or and vert, on a bend sinister sable three compass stars palewise Or.

This submission is returned for violation of SENA A3B4, which requires that placement of charges allow for good contrast with their underlying field. Though this submission has a neutral field and a color charge, the placement of the bend sinister sable places it entirely into contact with the vert checks of the field, giving poor armorial contrast. A recolor of the field to checky vert and Or should solve this.

There is a step from period practice for use of compass stars. We encourage the submitter to consider more period depictions of mullets.

This resubmission addresses the reason for return, and replaces the compass stars with suns.


23: Ríoghnach bean Niocláis - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Ríoghnach: female given name, OCM, s.n. Rígnach. This is the Modern Irish spelling.

bean: marital byname term denoting wife of.

Niocláis: Found 4 times between 1271 - 1489 in Index of Names in Irish Annals: Nioclás, Nicol by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) (https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Nioclas.shtml). No spelling of the genitive form is given. Commentary noted, however, the genitive form of Nioclás is Niocláis, as explained via the October 2009 LoAR [A-Outlands, Róis inghean Niocláis]. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/10/09-10lar.html) Therefore, this name is being submitted with the genitive form.

NAME NOTES:
SENA Appendix B.A.4 states,

Other bynames of relationship are found only in very limited times and places. They include the following:
a. Marital bynames describe a woman as her husband's wife. In most cultures in period, women did not change their bynames upon marriage (especially bynames of relationship: your father doesn't change when you get married).

Examples include the Old Norse Véuts kona, the English Jackewyf and Hobsonwyf, and the Gaelic bean Cormaic.... [emphasis ours]

Originally submitted as Ríoghnach inghean Uí Nioclás, the submitter expressed a desire to be known as Ríoghnach, wife of Nioclás, rather than a daughter of that clan. The name was changed at Kingdom to conform to the submitter's wishes.

25: Saito Takauji - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2006, via the Outlands.

Khorilar-un Batu

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Khorilar and Batu) most important.
Culture (Mongolian) most important.

Batu: found in the Men's Names section in Mongolian Naming Practices by Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html)

26: Sigurd Godwinsson - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Sigurd: masculine Norwegian given name, dated to 1307 in Diplomatarium Norvegicum (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst_2016.prl?b=3540&s=n&str=sigurd)

Godwinsson: patronymic based on masculine Old English given name Godwin, found in the Domesday Book, which dates it to 1086. Also documented in Personal Names in the Domesday Book by Constanza of Thamesreach (Genny Grim). (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/constanza/domesdaycornwall.html)

NAME NOTES:
The patronymic form would be Godwinssunu, but the Lingua Anglica allowance gives us Godwinson or Godwinsson. (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN1B2c)

SENA Appendix C supports combining Old English and Scandinavian.

The given name and byname are less than 300 years apart.

27: Sorcha O'Rian - Resub Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Sorcha O'Rian in August of 2009, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A dragon's head palewise contourny couped vert, breathing flames proper

This is a resubmission of a badge that was returned on the LoAR of 04/2017. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/04/17-04lar.html#Calontir_returns8)

(Fieldless) A dragon's head ululant vert breathing flames proper.

This badge must be returned for the use of ululant for a non-canine creature. This dragon's head is tilted to chief, a posture that in wolves we call ululant.

The December 2000 LoAR states:
While we allow wolves and foxes to be ululant, the head posture is an SCA invention. It is possible that had the head posture been introduced today we would not allow it. Allowing ululant wolves is a step beyond period practice; allowing anything but canines to use the position is two steps beyond period practice and therefore grounds for return. (Andela Romier, badge: (Fieldless) A mouse sejant ululant to sinister argent.)

This resubmission removes the bent-neck nature of the ululant posture in lieu of a straight neck.

This device is returned for redraw. In the return of Kjartan kjalki Kolgrimsson in the LoAR of January 2009, it was stated:
On resubmission, the submitter should also draw the dismembered goats using medieval dismembering. Legh's Accedens of Armory, 1576, fo.48v, shows a lion dismembered. The severings are done at the middle of the hind feet, the tops of the forelegs, the breast just below the mane (and just before where the forefeet would attach), and the middle of the tail.
This resubmission takes the advice in the text of the return.

32: William Fletcher of Carbery - New Blazon Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2005, via Calontir.

Per bend azure and gules, a bend Or between three arrows in pale fesswise reversed and a wine flask palewise argent

Text of submitted letter requesting reblazon:

To Magistra Emma Laurel, Mistress Alys Pelican and Master Cormac Wreath,

I, William Fletcher of Carberry, mundanely known as <redacted>, request correction of the blazon of my device as follows.

Device registered as: Per bend azure and gules, a bend Or between three arrows in pale fesswise reversed and a mariner's whistle palewise argent.

It should be blazoned: Per bend azure and gules, a bend Or between three arrows in pale fesswise reversed and a wine flask (or flask) palewise argent.

From the OandA -

The following device associated with this name was registered in December of 2005 (via Calontir):

Per bend azure and gules, a bend Or between three arrows in pale fesswise reversed and a mariner's whistle palewise argent.

From the December 2005 LoAR -

"Blazoned on the LoI as a flask, and on the submission form as a wine flask, the charge is actually a mariner's whistle. This charge is a period charge; it is one of the badges of the de Veres, earls of Oxford. Heraldic writers of the 19th and early 20th centuries (such as Fox-Davies, in his Heraldic Badges, pp.132-133) describe it as a bottle, and usually specify it as a wine bottle. However, in an article titled "Official Badges" by H. Stanford London (Coat of Arms, vol. IV (27), July 1956), it is shown that the charge in question -- the charge in this submission -- is a mariner's whistle. It was originally depicted fesswise (even Fox-Davies admits that), and only later was it misdrawn as palewise and thus misinterpreted as a bottle."

In preparing my original submission (see device above right), I used standard clip art that labeled the object in question as a wine flask, and that was the intended identity (I am a vintner, of course). Most people do not picture a whistle in a way that resembles the depiction on my device. Attempting to Google "mariner's whistle" uncovered no objects resembling my artwork. Indeed, based on the blazon in the LoAR, the device was rendered on the Calontir Kingdom Armorial as a completely different object (a boatswain's whistle), see http://armorial.calontir.org/Pages/WillCarb.htm , below right). Thus the current blazon does not reproduce the registered emblazon and we request that the blazon be corrected to "flask" or "wine flask" instead of "mariner's whistle".

Sincerely,

<his signature>

William Fletcher of Carberry
