2: Álmveig Edmundardottir - New Name & New Device

Argent, two badgers combatant sable marked argent within a bordure vert

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language (Norse) most important.

Álmveig Is found on the Viking Answer Lady site The first element Álm- is probably identical with Old Icelandic álmr, "elm, elm-tree". The etymology of the second element -veig is unclear. It may derive from OW.Norse veig "strong, powerful," which comes from Germanic *waizó, or it may instead come from OW.Norse víg "battle" and the OW.Norse adjective vígr "competent in battle, skilled with weapons". There is a slight possibility that -veig may instead be derived from OW.Norse vé "holy place" (compare with the Gothic adjective weihs "holy"). Cleasby-Vigfusson suggests a fourth possible derivation, from Old Icelandic veig, "a strong drink, alcoholic beverage" used of beer and the Mead of Poetry. It is uncertain whether the name Álmveig was ever used of human persons, as it appears in the Hyndluljóð in the Poetic Edda. CV pp. 43, 690 s.v. álmr, veig; NR s.v. -væig

Edmundr is a masculine given name found in GB pg 9

from GB "mundr generally form the genitive in -ar rather than -s" therefore the patronymic is Edmundardottir

8: Dreiburgen, Barony of - New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1976, .

Orden von den sieben Sterren

Per chevron throughout argent and azure, a tower argent within seven mullets in annulo counterchanged

No major changes.
Language (German) most important.
Meaning (Order of the Seven Stars) most important.

This does not conflict with the real world order Geselleschaff von den Sterren (Society of the Stars), cited in Juliana de Luna's Medieval Secular Order Names (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/) but not in the O&A, due to the addition of sieben (seven).

Juliana's article shows the pattern <charge> and <adjective>+<charge>. The November 2011 CL states "There are a handful of other adjectives used in order names and heraldic titles derived from charges: Estoile Volant 'flying star' (a star with wings), Croyslett (crosses crosslet), Corona Doble 'double crown', Rosenkrentzen 'rose wreaths' and gekrönten Steinbocken 'crowned ibex.' All seem to be more or less straightforward descriptions of charges." While not attested, number seems to be "straightforward description" of charges.

Orden - SENA Appendix E lists Orden as an acceptable German form of order

von den Sterren - from Juliana's Medieval Secular Order Names article (above), German, of the Stars. Sterren is a period spelling as shown in

"Institutiones astronomicae et geographicae" by Adrianus Metius (pub. 1621), https://books.google.com/books?id=izECWGGYcdsC (image 1). The first section is discussing Ursa Minor, "the little bear/holds in him 7 stars". Note that this appears be the Dutch rather than German spelling - the book was published in Amsterdam and Google translates thinks it is Dutch. The Barony requests that the spelling be changed if necessary for German.

sieben - German for seven.
