ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS

Letter of Intent

25 March 2018,

A.S. LII

Unto Juliana Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms. Most items were accepted at the Estrella XXXIV Consultation Tabl.e

Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.

1: Adam the Fox - New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and vert, a fret and on a chief argent an annulet sable between two oak trees vert.

Adam: English male name dated to 1086 in DB (Withycombe, Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names, 3rd edition, p. 3). Coblaith Muimnech notes that The Middle English Dictionary, s.n. prik(e (n.), dates "Adam Prikeman" to 1250 (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED34609). It's no-photocopy (http://heraldry.sca.org/admin.html#APPENDIXH). It is also the client's legal given name.

Fox: le Fox dated to 1297 as a nickname (Reaney and Wilson, Dictionary of English Surnames, 3rd edition, p. 176 s.n. Fox).


2: Aislinn Nihtingale - New Name

Aislinn: client's legal middle name; a copy of the AZ driver's is included for Laurel.

Nihtingale: English surname, with the variant spelling dated to 1227 (Reaney and Wilson, p. 322 s.n. Nightingale).


3: Alexandra Prestre - New Name & New Device

Argent, a pink flamingo close proper, a chief enarched azure estencelly Or and a ford proper.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Alexandra: found for ALEXANDRA BARREY Female Christening 3 August 1561 Great Hormead, Hertford, England WM Batch: P012061 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AAlexandra~%2 0%2Bsurname%3ABarrey~). It is also the client's legal given name.

Prestre: French byname dated to 1515 in "Names from Lallaing 1384 â€" 1600: Bynames," Domhnall na Moicheirghe (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/lallaing/lallaing_names_bynames.html#p).

The client's legal name is Alexandra Priest. ffride wlffsdotter notes: The Administrative Handbook III.A.10 says that you only need a small change in pronunciation, to clear "conflict" with their mundane name: "A small change in the name is sufficient for registration, such as the addition of a syllable or a spelling change that changes the pronunciation. However, a change to spelling without a change in pronunciation is not sufficient. For example, Alan Miller could not register the name Alan Miller or Allan Miller but he could register the name Alan the Miller. Further, submitters may register either a name or armory which is a close variant of a name or insignia they use outside the Society, but not both." (http://heraldry.sca.org/admin.html)

"Priest" to "Prestre" would change the pronunciation, surely?


4: Alpin Callan - New Name & New Device

Per pale azure and sable, a wolf's head ululant erased contourny between three mullets voided and interlaced argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Spelling most important.

Alpin is the name of several Pictish kings (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpin). It can, however, be dated later, to 1287, for Alpinus, canon of Dunblane, and for Alpin mac Donald, a witness for a charter of the halfpenny land of the church of Killilan that was granted to the monks of Paisley in 1295 (Black, p. 20, s.n. Alpin, Alpine).

Laughlin Callan is given a death date of 20 July 1570 and a burial date of 1570 in Collon, County Louth, Ireland, Affiliate Record Identifier 142264887 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3ALaghlin~%20%2Bsurna me%3ACallan~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1500-1650~).

Ululant is a Step from Period Practice.


5: Alsacia Rabynovicha - New Name & New Device

Sable, on a bend between two bears rampant argent, a bat bendwise sinister sable.

Alsacia: client's legal middle name; a copy of the AZ driver's is included for Laurel.

Rabynovicha: byname from her mother's registered name, Natal'ia Diekova vdova Rabynovicha (the widow of a fellow name Diek Rabynovich).

Iago ab Adam comments: Precedent (on my daughter's device submission!) states: "The default orientation for animate charges not affronty or displayed on a bend is bendwise sinister; in other words, they are climbing upwards along the bend." [Joye de Beumund. September 2011 via An Tir] This would seem to imply that the default for displayed charges is bendwise (which fits with period examples of eagles displayed on a bend that I've seen). So let's go with: Sable, on a bend between two bears rampant argent a bat bendwise sinister sable.


6: Alþrúðr Karlsdottir - New Name & New Device

Azure, a horse courant contourny argent and a bordure rayonny Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Meaning ("strength, power" "Karl's daughter") most important.

The name is Old Norse.

Alþrúðr: female given name (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml).

Karlsdottir: patronymic formed from male given name Karl ("Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html), and the suffix -dóttir ("A Simple Guide to Creating Old Norse Names," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html). The submitted name should include the accents found in -dóttir (this is attested to by Lind, col. 676, with the genitive of Karl being Karls, hence Karlsdóttir.).

ffride wlffsdotter adds to the documentation: "Nordiskt runnamnslexikon by Lena Peterson has: p. 23 sn. Alþrúðr, feminine name, and p. 146 sn. Karl, masculine name (http://www.sprakochfolkminnen.se/download/18.6dffb94c149794d926e379/1415279748920/Runnamnslexikon_T% 20141106.pdf).


7: Andromeda Lykaina - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Sable, two wolves courant respectant argent and in chief a ducal coronet Or.

Old Item: Azure, on a fess argent between a crescent and two scimitars in saltire Or a lotus flower in profile azure., to be retained as a badge.

The name was registered September 2016.

The client is entitled to bear a ducal coronet on her armory, 7 April 2011 (http://www.atenveldt.org/Heraldry/OrderofPrecedence/memid/3805#results).


8: Apolonia Cristyne von Culmbach - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Spelling most important.

Apolonia: German female given name, spelled as Apollonia in "15th-Century German Women's Names," Brian Scott (https://www.s-gabriel.org/docs/german15f.html).

Cristyne: German female given name (ibid.).

Culmbach: Kulmbach is a city in Bavaria. Plassenburg Castle was a symbol of the city and was first mentioned in 1135; it was built to the west of an earlier fortified farmstead. The castle was a central supporting stronghold for the Meranian rulers of the Upper Main and Franconian Forest. It was destroyed in 1554. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plassenburg). ffride wlffsdotter adds: Chronologia, das ist gründtliche Jahrrechnung sampt verzeichnung der fürnemsten Geschichten, Verenderungen und Zufell ..., published in 1577 according to GoogleBooks, says in 1552: "Marggraff Albrecht von Culmbach"

https://books.google.com.au/books?id=IIFKAAAAcAAJ&pg=RA3-PT1116&dq=von+Culmbach&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUK Ewiy2bKctMrZAhUDWq0KHYZKCUoQ6AEITzAG#v=onepage&q=von%20Culmbach&f=false

Double given names are permitted in German, according to SENA Appendix A.


9: Arianwen Sweet - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2013, via Atenveldt.

Azure, a heart Or between a pair of wings conjoined, in chief three mullets argent.

The previous submission, Per fess doubly-enarched azure and Or, three compass stars in fess argent and a pair of bat wings conjoined sable., was returned by Laurel June 2013 "for using a per fess doubly-enarched field division. Precedent states: This device is returned due to the use of a fess doubly-enarched. No evidence was presented, and none could be found by commenters, that the charge is compatible with period heraldry."

The device has been redesigned.


10: Bellina Morgan - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2007, via Atenveldt.

(Fieldless) A frying pan sable charged with a rose argent barbed and seeded proper.

This is the 1370 heraldic rendition of a frying pan supplied by the Pictorial Dictionary (http://mistholme.com/?s=frying+pan).


11: Brigid MacPherson - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Submitted as Fiona Brigid MacPherson, Fiona is a post-period SCA-compatibl Gaelic name, permitted with the legal name allowance only. Upon further consultation with the client, she finds the finds the given naem Brigid acceptable.

Brigid: Brigid Reed was married 16 November 1560 in Harrow On The Hill, London, England (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKDL-F2Y ).

MacPherson: is found in Black's Surnames of Scotland, for Donald Macpherson in 1420 s.n. MacPherson.


12: Britton Brekeale - New Name

No major changes.

Britton: client's legal given name; a copy of his high school ID card is forwarded to Laurel.

ffride wlffsdotter notes that: Christopher Britton, christened 1596, England. Batch no. P00532-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NPJP-9ZD), and that the September 2012 LoAR cover letter says: (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5) "In general, family names documented in sixteenth century England may be used to create given names...."

Brekeale: Middle English byname, " to break + all, everything," associated with a clumsy or wild person. This is dated to 1380 in Middle English Nicknames, I. Compound Names, Jan Jonsjo, p. 63.


13: Celeste Vallentine - New Name & New Device

Purpure mullety argent, a natural leopard gardant rampant contourny argent spotted sable.

No major changes.

Celeste: Academy of St. Gabriel Report 508 (http://www.s-gabriel.org/508) notes there is a Saint Celeste, bishop of Metz in the 4th C., several popes Celestin (one in the late 13th century), and a virgin martyr St. Celestina. It is also the client's legal given name.

Vallentine: English surname used from 1251 onward; this spelling is included but undated (Reaney and Wilson, p. 464 s.n. Valentin, Valentine et al.). There is a John Vallentine with a christening date of 8 April 1582 in Saint John, Hackney, London, England, Batch C04215-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Avallentine~%20%2Bbirt h_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1300-1600~).


14: Denis of the Titans - New Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1971, .

Per pale vert and argent, a lion passant counterchanged, armed, langued and orbed gules and as augmentations On a canton azure a whelk within a bordure Or and On a sinister canton argent, a heart gules charged with a horse rampant Or, a bordure gules.

The name was registered August 1971.

The original arms were registered at the same time.

The first augmentation was registered May 2004.

The new augmentation (with the charged heart) was awarded to His Excellency 6 May 2017 by TRM Morgan and Elizabeth, as part being made Premier of the Order of Glory, Royal Peer.

I enclose the detail of the Augmentation under consideration.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:

15: Elis MacLeod - New Name

No major changes.
Language (Gaelic) most important.
Culture most important.
Meaning most important.

Elis: English given name dated 1220 for Elis de Adham (Reaney and Wilson, p. 154 s.n. Ellis, Elliss et al.).

MacLeod: Black dates this spelling to 1227 for a Gillandres MacLeod, p. 538 s.n. MACLEOD.


16: Elizabeth Busshenell - New Name

Elizabeth: a very popular English female given name dated specifically to 1561 and 1568 ("Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: elizabeth," Talan Gwynek, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Elizabeth).

Busshenell: registered name of her grandmother, Ann Busshenell of Tylehurst. Joan Busshenell has a christening date of 7 May 1565 in Thatcham, Berkshire, England Batch K15779-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3ABusshenell~%20%2Bbirt h_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1600~).


17: Gallant O'Driscole - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2003, via Atenveldt.

Vert, a bee proper and a point point ermine.

This is for his one-year-old daughter; we decided to register the badge to him, and if she eventually would like it as a badge or device of her own, it can be easily transferred.

There should be a DC from a bee argent and from a bee Or. (Thanks to Morsulus Herald, magically appearing at the Estrella Consultation Table, for help in determining this.)

The point point is drawn, as seen in the registered badge of Madlena Malacky, Sable, a crescent pendant and on a point pointed argent a crescent sable. (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=72223), which was registered without comment April 2017.


18: Hannah of Sankt Vladimir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Hannah: Hannah Collier has a christening date of 27 June 1532 in Wield, Hampshire, England, Batch C14668-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N1R1-4J9 ). It is also the client's legal given name.

Sankt Vladimir: the College, at Northern Arizona University, was registered October 2001.


19: Ida Grim - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2007, via Atenveldt.

Or, a snail contourny, on a chief azure three bees Or.


20: João Drago Da Costa - New Name

All elements are found in "Portuguese Names from the 16th Century: Letters from the Court of King John III," Juliana de Luna, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/portugal16/.

João: masculine Portuguese given name.

Drago: Portuguese surname.

Da Costa: Portuguese locative surname (cited as da Costa).

The pattern of <given + patronymic + locative> is seen in SENA Appendix A.


21: Kolli Makanarson - New Name & New Device

Vert, a thistle argent entwined by and sustaining a serpent Or.

No major changes.

Kolli: ON male given name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 12).

Makanarson: Makan is an ON male given name (ibid. p. 14). The patronymic is formed with the particle -ar to create the genitive, followed by the -son suffix (ibid. p. 17).

ffride wlffsdotter comments: "Lind col. 757 sn. Makan points to a Makan stýtimaðr ca. 1178. He says it's "antagl. utländing" or "presumably a foreigner." The client has assumed that if names ending in -dan become -danar then it follows that Makan becomes Makanar. I honestly don't know." We are clueless as well.


22: Kristófórus Jafnkollr - New Name & New Device

Per fess azure and sable, in pale a demi-sun Or eclipsed sable issuant from chief and a sea-serpent Or, a bordure parted bordurewise wavy azure and argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for Norse, Old Icelandic, Scandanavian.
Sound ("Kris") most important.

Kristófórus: ON male given name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 13).

Jafnkollr: ON byname, "even-mind, level-head" (ibid, p. 23).


23: Leofric Hield - New Name & New Device

Argent, a cow statant sable with the head of a jester gardant proper, headed gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Leofric: Old English male given name dated to DB 1086 (Withycombe, p. 193).

Hield: variant of the surname Heald (Reaney, p. 224 s.n. Heald, Held et al.). IGI cites Mary Hield with a christening date of 8 May 1625 in All Hallows the Less, London, London, England, Batch C02128-2 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AHield~%20%2Bbi rth_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~).

There was some comment on the emblazon: Michael Gerard Curtememoire: "All cows registered in the OSCAR era have had visible, though never prominent, udders. Whether the lack of one is enough to sustain a charge of not being in period style I do not know." and Madoc Arundel: "There is nothing remotely bovine about the beast, given the lack of the head (which bears most of the identifying features of a cow) and udder. As depicted, this could be canine or feline just as easily." The beast is drawn very much like the marginalia that it is taken from. Looking closely, the beast has split hooves, like that of a bovine. It has the tail of a bovine, with long hairs only at the end of the tail. I can't comment on the lack of udders, other than this beast is missing a pizzle and that most period cattle didn't have the massive/pathological udders we see with breeds like the modern Holstein-Freisian.


24: Lorelei Beguine - New Name & New Device

Argent, a swan rousant contourny and a base azure.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Lorelei: client's legal given name. A copy of her AZ driver's license is included for Laurel.

Beguine: a member of a Christian sisterhood that was founded in Liège in the 12th century, and in several areas, often in the Netherlands. Although a woman did not take religious vows, she followed an austere life.

ffride wlffsdotter notes An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris by Lord Colm Dubh has: Dame Ade la béguine, Beneoite la béguine, Juliote la bèguine,Perronele la béguine (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paris.html). SENA Appendix A says that French bynames may omit the article, or admit it. So "Lorelei Beguine" should be OK.

Coblaith Muimnech notes Sara L. Uckelman's DRAFT: Names in the 1292 census of Paris indicates one instance of la Beguine in the source material. (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/1292paris.pdf)

The original submission, Argent, a swan rousant contourny azure., conflicted with Svana Karlsdóttir's device, Argent, a swan azure., with only 1 DC for the orientation of the bird. Adding the base gives the second needed DC to clear the conflict.


25: Malik of the High Desert - New Name & New Device

Per pale indented argent and sable, two bats counterchanged.

Malik: an Arabic male 'ism/given name ("Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices," Da'ud ibn Auda, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm).

High Desert: lingua Franca locative. (The client's local SCA group is situated in the Mojave Desert, which is described as a High Desert in ecological terms.)

Michael Gerard Curtememoire notes that (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/01/15-01lar.html#123), Da'ud ibn Ma'bad al-Wadi seems to assume that generic locatives (a nisba in this case) are acceptable in Arabic.


26: Margaret Busshenell - New Name

Margaret: a very popular English female given name dated specifically to 1564 ("Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: Margaret," Talan Gwynek, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Margaret).

Busshenell: registered name of her grandmother, Ann Busshenell of Tylehurst. Joan Busshenell has a christening date of 7 May 1565 in Thatcham, Berkshire, England Batch K15779-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3ABusshenell~%20%2Bbirt h_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1600~).


27: María Isabel Falcón de la Sierra - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2002, via Atenveldt.

Argent, in pall three human figures, heads to center and arms and legs outstretched purpure.

There may be a SFPP for the use of charges in annulo, not in their default orientation; one SFPP is permitted. Wreath Queen of Arms commented in "Where have all the details gone?", "not all period heraldic art has internal details, and such silhouette depictions are acceptable in the SCA as long as identifiability is preserved" ( http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2001/08/01-08cl.html).


28: Michael MacGregor - New Name

No major changes.

Michael: client's legal given name. There is a marriage record for Michael Trumbill dated to November 1572 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland, (Batch) Number M10012-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTPC-TQV).

MacGregor: a Scottish family name. It is listed in Black's Surnames of Scotland dated to 1603, p. 505.


29: Natasia Novikova - New Name

No major changes.

Natasia: female Russian given name; it is listed in "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section N" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/n.html) as Nastas'ia. According to the July 2017 LoAR Acceptances for Natas'ia Sveneva, this spelling of the given name was registerable, although the apostrophe seems to be necessary (Natas'ia).

Novikova: Novik is a Russian male given name (ibid.). Adding a terminal -a feminizes the byname Novikov ("Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names - Grammar," http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html, under Feminine Patronymics).


30: Oláfr inn grái Sveinsson - New Name & New Device

Azure, a stag's attires and on a chief nebuly argent three gouttes azure.

Óláfr: Old Norse masculine given name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 13).

Sveinsson: Svein is an ON masculine given name (ibid., p. 15). I believe the patronymic form of the byname is Sveinsson (ibid., p. 17).

The nickname inn grái, "the grey," was added (ibid., p. 22) after consultation with the client, as his original submission, Ólafr Sveinsson, conflicted with name Olaf Sveinsson, registered February 1995.

The gouttes are based on Wreath's allowance for teardrop-shaped gouttes, within limits: "From Wreath: The Shape of Things - Gouttes": given the evidence we express a strong preference for the traditional wavy-tailed gouttes. Teardrop shaped gouttes are registerable as long as they are elongated, more than twice as long as they are wide... (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/03/13-03cl.html#5 )


31: Olafr Karlsson - New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and Or, in pale a dragon statant and a wolf's head cabossed argent, both orbed azure.

Olafr: Old Norse masculine given name, demonstrated as Óláfr (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 13).

Karlsson: ON masculine given name (ibid., p. 12). The patronymic is formed as directed by Geirr Bassi (ibid., p. 17).

The client would really, really like both beasts to have blue eyes.


32: Raza-Una - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Raza-: Old Norse byname, "arse" (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 26).

Una: ON feminine given name (ibid., p. 15).

In the acceptance of Raza-Skúli (who happens to be her lord) in the June 2015 LoAR, it was noted that "Those present at the Pelican decision meeting did not think that Raza- is offensive, noting that "arse" does not have the same connotation as the returned "anus" or "asshole". Therefore, we are able to register this name." Yes, the client is aware of the meaning.


33: Refr Fólkason - New Name & New Device

Per chevron vert semy of forget-me-nots Or and azure, in base a winged fox passant contourny argent.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

Refr is a masculine ON name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 14).

Fólki is a masculine ON name (ibid., p. 9). The genitive form is Fólkason, according to the construction of patronym, p. 17.


34: Ríán hua Tadgáin - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Quarterly sable and argent, a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy sable.

The previous submission, Per chevron sable and vert, a chevron rompu between a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy and an edelweiss argent seeded Or., was withdrawn by the submitter.

There was some comment as to why this didn't run afoul of the sword-and-dagger rule, but I doubt it does; minus the internal details, the outline of both charges are identical, and could just as easily be blazoned as (although the client might not appreciate it) as two masks/two theatrical masks.


35: Ro Asper - New Name & New Device

Per chevron Or and vert, two sprigs of aspen leaves vert and a ram's head cabossed argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.
Meaning (from the aspen trees) most important.

Ro: German female given name found in "German Names from 1495," Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/german1495.html).

Asper: German surname dated to 1488 in Dictionary of German Names, Hans Bahlow, p. 21 s.n. Asp(er).

There was a comment that there'd be a problem that the sprigs aren't at a blazonable angle. "Redrawing them either palewise (which I believe is default) or bendwise before they're sent up will be much safer." I think the sprigs are acceptable as drawn.


36: Roland Rothais - Resub Name

The client's previous submission, Roland of Blaye, was returned by Laurel July 2017 "because it presumes on the significant historical figure Count Roland, nephew of Charlemagne and eponymous hero of the 12th century Chanson de Roland, one of the most famous pieces of medieval literature. Roland was called seigneur de Blaye (overlord of Blaye) in period sources. For example, Annales & croniques de France: depuis la destruction de Troye iusques au temps du roy Louis onzieme, published in 1553 (https://books.google.com/books?id=iy9hAAAAcAAJ), refers to Roland several times as "Comte du Mans" (Count of Mans) and "Seigneur de Blaye." Blaye continues to be the modern name of the place. Thus, Roland of Blaye is a form of the famous Roland's name and the present submission must be returned as presumptuous."

Roland appears as a name in "Given Names from Brittany, 1384-1600," Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn, with the desired spelling dated 1526 (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/latebreton.html).

Rothais is an English byname dated to 1086 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 383 s.n. Rose.


37: Rowan of the Titans - New Device Change

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

Per chevron Or and sable, two pawprints and a fleur-de-lys counterchanged.

Old Item: Azure, an elephant rampant contourny proper maintaining in its trunk a cluster of Rowan flowers argent, slipped and leaved vert., to be retained as a badge.

The use of pawprints is a SFPP.


38: Sadb ingen Máedóc - New Name & New Device

Per pale indented gules and azure, a tree blasted and eradicated Or and an increscent argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

de Lacy: a place name located in Normandy and brought to England by the Normans. This spelling is dated to 1375 in the Academy of St. Gabriel Report # 2611 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2611+0). It can also be found Monumental Brass Inscriptions, Surnames A - H, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/brasses/lastnameAH.html 1(1) de Lacy - 1375 kt (kt = Kent) http://heraldry.sca.org/names/brasses/welcome.html.

Lacy appears in several forms over several centuries, the earliest being de Laci 1086 and Laci 1086 (Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 2611,

http://www.s-gabriel.org/2611).

Prior to 1100, the combination of French and Scandinavian elements is permitted. A later spelling might be an issue, as the client will not accept Major or Minor changes to the name. However, being previously registered as Sigríðr Úlfsdóttir, this might count as neutral in both time and language. Additionally, she is changing her name/locative to match her new husband's SCA name. Collin de Lacy was registered September 2016.

Just asking and I don't think it will make a difference, but would the removal of the ON diacritical marks help in this matter?)
