Lochac LoI dated 2018-06-27

Unto the Lochac College of Heralds and the College of Arms does Lord Gunther Boese, Rocket Herald send greetings.

It is our intent to register the following heraldic submissions.

1: Ælfwynne Athelstanesdohtor æt Eoforwice - New Name & New Device

Per pale purpure and argent, two dragons addorsed counterchanged within a bordure sable".

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (Personal name Ælfwynne (Spelling not important)) most important.
Language (Old English) most important.
Culture (Anglo-Saxon) most important.

Consulting Herald is Bjǫrn Bassason (Mordenvale)

Ælfwynne is a feminine Anglo-Saxon personal name dated to 948 found in Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters by Marieke van de Dal
https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/

Athelstan is a masculine Anglo-Saxon personal name dated to 931 found in The Names of Testators in the Cartularium Saxonicum Malmesburiensem by Sara L. Uckelman
http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/malmesbury-oe.html
The genitive is Athelstanes, forming the patronym Athelstanesdohtor

Eoforwic is the Anglo-Saxon name for York during the period 895-1150 (Watts p. 711). Ekwall (p. 545) also documents Eoforwic as an Old English spelling of the Roman Eboracum and the the Welsh Efwr. The dative form is Eoforwice, thus the locative æt Eoforwice

Name notes from Kingdom

ffride wlffsdotter commented
I don't think the given name is in the nominative case, and it should be Ælfwynn_.

Marieke's page points to Sawyer document no. 535 for Ælfwynne, which is online, but my Latin isn't the best. I think it's in the genitive, something akin in English to "in Ælfwynn's name": http://www.esawyer.org.uk/charter/535.html

PASE sn. Ælfwynn has the nominative form without the e, and the April 2017 LoAR cover letter notes: (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/04/17-04cl.html#6) "The article "Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters," by Marieke van de Dal (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/) should be used with caution. While the bolded header forms in the article are always the nominative forms, the various spellings under the header are not. In the last several months we have had numerous submitters relying on unbolded spellings as if they were spelling alternate spellings, when in fact those spellings each represented the name in a different case and were not usable as given names."

Bosworth & Toller say wíc is a strong neuter noun, so the dative form of the locative byname is correct: http://bosworth.ff.cuni.cz/035494

Michael Gerard Curtememoire found no conflict.

Device notes from Kingdom

Blazon changed from "Per pale puprure and argent within a bordure sable two dragons segreant addorsed counterchanged" to "Per pale purpure and argent, two dragons addorsed counterchanged within a bordure sable".

Discussion about whether this breaks the rules as stated above.

Device notes from Kingdom

Gunnvor silfraharr (Orle) wrote I would blazon this as an orle of two thorn vines intertwined. A chaplet is round, something that you could wear on your head. I'd also suggest an artist's note to make the thorns more prominent.

de Saincte-Même
Histoire de Henry le Grand IV du nom, Roy de France et de Navarre, published 1639, talking about events in 1596, mentions: (https://books.google.com.au/books?id=2qpoAAAAcAAJ&dq="Sainte%20Meme"&pg=PA211#v=onepage&q="Sainte%20Meme"&f=false)

Michael Gerard Curtememoire wrote The example from the Histoire offered shows <Sainct_-Même>, which does not quite match the submission's <Saincte-Même>. However, elsewhere in the same book, p. 211, we find both spellings on the same page, image below. (Note that I found this accidentally by a fumble-fingered search for Sainte Meme without the C. With the C, the transcription doesn't find it!)

Correction. It shows <Sainct-Meme> and <Saincte-Meme>. https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2006/01/06-01cl.html, "From Pelican - The use of the circumflex in French spellings" declares we must conclude that modern French spellings that use the circumflex are not representative of period French forms. While words that can be found with this mark in original period texts may be registered using this mark, French words that use the circumflex are not otherwise registerable. I feel sure that "French" in this case applies to all the languages used in what is now France.

The submission should be <Alias de Saincte-Meme>.

30: Þorvaldr Erlingsson í Raumaríki - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (Old Norse) most important.
Culture (c8th-c10th Scandinavian) most important.

Consulting Herald Bjǫrn Bassason (Stormhold)

Þorvaldr is a masculine Old Norse personal name found in [Geirr Bassi]

Erlingr is a masculine Old Norse personal name found in [Geirr Bassi]. The genitive is Erlings, thus the patronym Erlingson.

Raumaríki is an Old Norse name for the modern district of Romerike, in what is today SE Norway, found in Heimskringla: History of the Kings of Norway by Snorri Sturluson (translation by A. Finlay & A. Faulkes), p.42 (p.69 of the linked document) Saga of Halfdane the Black: http://vsnrweb-publications.org.uk/Heimskringla%20I.pdf

This forms the Old Norse locative í Raumaríki.

Gunnvor silfraharr (Orle) wrote Finnur' Jonsson's work is "Bynames in Old Icelandic Literature", not surnames.
Let's cite this from an Appendix H no-photocopy source, E.H. Lind Personbinamn col. 323 s.n. <skialdarband>. The meaning is "shield-band", i.e., a shield-strap. It's found as the byname of one man, Andrés, in Hákonar saga Hákonarsonar and Íslenzkir Annálar (†1230).

Michael Gerard Curtememoire wrote Because I had to look it up to confirm, I'll report here. http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A3B3c, "Elements Divided Quarterly or Per Saltire", apparently permits this.
