Archers Ford is intended here as a constructed placename, following the pattern of fords named after people, such as Ashford (possibly Eccel's ford), Alford (the one in Somerset is Ealdgyþ's ford), Aylesford (Ægel's ford), and Otford (Otta's ford), which are all headers in Ekwall.

The submitter will accept House of Archersford if necesssary for registration.

The pattern [designator] + [surname] + Ford appears to be supported by the registration of the household name Marshalls Ford Tavern on the July 2010 LoAR (A-East), which used the same documentation for the pattern of [surname] + Ford for a place name.

Sound most important.

Bianca is found in "Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names," by Arval Benicoeur and Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14given.html#table). The accent mark is per De Felice Dizionario Dei Nomi Italiani s.n. Biànca.

Eastern Crown notes that the accents used in De Felice do not reflect period spelling; they are used to indicate pronunciation. By precedent, the accent will have to be removed for registration. [Callista Teresa di Bella 03/2000 LoAR A-Caid].

da Firenze is found as a locative byname in Arval & Talan's article. (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14sur.html#table).

Appendix A of SENA states that, for Italian names, "[l]ocative bynames in the northern and central areas normally take the form da X, but de X and di X are rarely found." di Firenze therefore is a valid form.

17: Cacht Mhór inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh -New Name & New Device

Purpure, three oak leaves in pall argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Cacht is a Middle and Early Modern Irish Gaelic feminine given name appearing in Mari ingen Briain's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Cacht.shtml) with an Annals date of 1054 and 1231.

Mhór is the lenited form of the descriptive byname Mór, which also appears in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/DescriptiveBynames.shtml) with Annals dates between 1231 and 1562. The lenited form is required because this is a feminine name.

inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh is based on the undated header Mac an Mhadaidh, found in Woulfe. This family name would originate from the literal patronymic byname mac an Mhadaigh, indicating that the father had the descriptive byname an Mhadaidh '[of] the Dog'. From this patronym would derive the family name Mac an Mhadiadh.

Examples of descriptive bynames similar to an Mhadaidh '[of] the dog' can be found in Mari's "Index" (http://www.medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/Topic.shtml), which lists the following descriptive bynames referring to domesticated animals:

[of] the Beeves/Cattle (na Mart)

[of] the Milch Cows (na nGamhnach)

[of] the White Horse (in Eich Gil)

The Annals of Connacht, entry 1542.10, mentions the place name Leim an Madaidh 'Leap [of] the Dog', showing Madaidh is a period form. Connacht uses conservative spellings, which explains the lack of the expected lenition in the element Madaidh (the expected form would be Mhadaidh).

While prior registration is no guarantee, Eastern Crown notes that Cellach Dhonn inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh and Síle Dhubh inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh, both using the identical documentation for the byname, were registered on the April 2012 LoAR (A-East).

Mac Salny is a Scots byname found in Black, The Surnames of Scotland, p. 524-25 s.n. Mackelvie which notes Morice Macsalny of Dumfriesshire (1296). The submitter would prefer Mac Salny if that form can be documented.

19: Caitilin inghean mhic Ruadhain -New Name & New Device

Or, on a bend between two annulets vert three eggs Or.

Meaning (Caitilin grandaughter of the red-headed man) most important.

Caitilin is found as an Early Modern Irish Gaelic feminine given name in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Caitilin.shtml), with Annals dates from 1411 to 1592.

Ruadhain is the genitive form of Ruadhán, discussed in St. Gabriel report 2223 (http://www.s-gabriel.org/2223) as a normalized late-period Gaelic name dated to 1541, citing Ewen, C. L'Estrange, A History of Surnames of the British Isles.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for French 1500s.

All parts of this name are grandfathered to the submitter.

While under the RfS, this name was a likely conflict with the registered Marie du Bois, commenters are asked to re-evaluate this conflict under SENA. In addition, commenters are asked to consider whether the historic Marie de Blois, Countess of Provence and Regent of Naples, is sufficiently significant to protect. Eastern Crown notes that the historic Marie de Blois does not have a separate article in the on-line Encyclopedia Britannica.

The submitter has the following armory already registered:

Device: Per pale pean and erminois (May 2002 via the Outlands)

Badge: (Fieldless) A mullet of eight points gyronny purpure and argent (July 2003 via the Outlands)

Badge: Argent, a cross triple-parted and fretted gules and a bordure potenty sable (January 2007 via the Outlands)

Badge: Or, a schnecke issuant from base maintaining on the outer swirl three schneckes sable (May 2012 via the East)

She is still well within her limit on armory if this badge is registered.
