"The sea-nettle is the creature usually termed a "jellyfish" in modern English. It has a round body with dangling, frond-like tentacles. Documentation was supplied from Gulielmi Rondeletii's Libri de piscibus marinis: in quibus verae piscium, published in 1554, and matches the submitted charge." https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2010/09/10-09lar.html


12: Idris Fofana - New Name

Idris is found in "Andalusian Names: Arabs in Spain" by Juliana de Luna http://heraldry.sca.org/names/andalusia.html . Idris is a masculine given name.

Fofana is a possible transliteration of an ism, found in the name Mu'adhib Daawuud ibn Fuufanaa. However, the text states that Fuufana is a variant of Fuufanaa, which is the Arabic form of the Manding patronymic-group name Fofana (p. 84). The grave stone with these inscriptions was not specifically dated, but all of the stones in this source are from the 11th to the 15th centuries. A possible example of the name pattern, an apparently unmarked patronym, is Kuurii (or Korey/Kuur.y/Kw.r.y) which is found in the names Yaamaa Kuurii, A'isha [daughter of] al-Malik [King] Kuurii and Bariiqa daughter of Kuurii (pp. 13-4, 17-8, 28).

If the documentation for Fofana is unacceptable, the submitter will also accept Idris al-Ifriqi.
Al-Ifriqi is found in "Andalulsian Names: Arabs in Spain" by Juliana de Luna http://heraldry.sca.org/names/andalusia.html Al-Ifiqi is listed as a locative byname meaning from Africa.

Consulting Herald: Seraphina Delfino Ragged Staff

By submitter's/consulting herald's request, we are sending this up in hopes that someone in "big OSCAR" will be able to assist further with documentation.

The Middle English Dictionary, s.n. wǒlf (n.) dates "John le Wolfhunte" to 1299, and the entry for hunte (n.) lists "honte" as an attested variant and gives examples of that form recorded in the 14th and 15th centuries. https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=247819715&egdisplay=compact&egs=24785510 5

Lion: is found in "Oxford Universal English Dictionary" v. V. p. 1149, cites lion to ME. The on-line Middle English Dictionary cites this spelling to circa 1450: a1450(a1400) Medit.Pass.(2) (Add 11307) 517: þe lion whan him hongreþ sore, He gynneþ for to crye and rore.

Cross: is found in "Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry, Version 3" by Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme http://mistholme.com/dictionary/cross/. The cross is an heraldic ordinary, a vertical lath conjoined to a horizontal lath. As an ordinary, it is throughout by default, and subject to all the usual treatments - e.g. embattled, wavy, voided, cotised - but as the symbol of Christianity, it was elaborated and varied by the medievals more than any other charge. Medieval heralds were familiar with roughly twenty types of cross, according to Brault [Coat of Arms I(90), Summer 74, pp.54-64]; more than three hundred types may be found in Victorian heraldry books.

The household name pattern of Charge and Charge is found in "English Sign Names from 1636 by Juliana de Luna, Siren Herald (Julia Smith)", http://heraldry.sca.org/kwhss/2015/KWHSS%202015%20English%20Sign%20Names%20from%201636.pdf .
