East April 1 LoI dated 2013-04-01

Do not adjust your monitor. The College Imaginary (Eastern division) has seized control of OSCAR for another year's edition of completely documentable joke names and armory.

Blame for this year's opus is abundantly apportioned among myself, Istvan Potent Chief, Yehuda Matzoh Brei Omelet, Lillia Butterscotch Crampet, Ian Bend Butcher, Julia Blue Twin, and others whose names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Yours in laughter,

Alys, Taisez-vous Herald of the College Imaginary

If the name cannot be registered without a yobina, the submitter will accept the Hungarian name Bitou Tamas instead.

It's glossed as an unmarked patronymic based on a Slavic variant of Latin Vitus. [Kázmér Miklós: _Régi magyar családnevek szótára_ (Magyar Nyelvtudományi Társaság, Budapest, 1993)]

Consulting herald: Bud Fox.

Day is an English female given name found in the IGI Parish Records Extracts:

Trader is intended as a lingua anglica form of the name <Monger>, dated 1316 in R&W, s.n. Manger. That name is derived from the Old English mongere 'monger, dealer, trader'.

The word 'trader' is also found as a common noun in period, dated to 1585 in the OED with the modern meaning of 'one whose business is trade or commerce, or who is engaged in trading; a dealer or trafficker'. Is is plausible as an occupational byname.

13: Dear Eliza - New Name & New Device

Gules, on a bucket argent marked azure an ogress.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning ('dear' or 'beloved') most important.

Dear. The name's etymology is unclear, and could be derived from the Old English dēore 'beloved', or from the OE dēor glossed as 'brave, bold' or 'wild animal/deer/swift'.

Additional names with the Der- prototheme that have the 'dear, beloved' meaning are found in the MED:

(1176) in Pipe R.Soc.25 53: Hugo Dierechild de Craneford.

(1332) Sub.R.War.in Dugd.Soc.6 8: Juliana Derloue.

23: Good-Humour Barre - New Name & New Device

Quarterly azure and Or semy of popsicles per fess azure and gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (16th cen. English) most important.

Consulting herald: Iwan de Best

Bardsley's "Curiosities of Puritan Nomenclature" demonstrates a pattern of Puritans naming their children with phrases:

1618, March 28. Bapt. John, sonne of Goodgift Gynninges. (p. 167)

1582, March 10. Baptized From-above Plendley. (p. 167)

1587, June 6. Baptized More-fruite Stone, of Steven (p. 167)

1589, Oct. 12. Baptized Fre-gyft and Fear-not, ye children of John Lulham. (p. 166)

1596, March 6. Baptized Love-God, daughter of Hugh Walker, vicar (p. 165)

1636, March 19. Baptized Be-steadfast, sonne of Thomas EUiard (p. 163)

** 1589, Nov. 9. Baptized Learn-wysdome, d. of Rychard Ellis (p. 163)

Good-humour is a hypothetical phrase name based on this pattern. Good is found in Goodgift above. Humour refers to the four temperments of Renaissance medical theory:

humour, also spelled Humor, (from Latin "liquid," or "fluid"), in early Western physiological theory, one of the four fluids of the body that were thought to determine a person's temperament and features. In the ancient physiological theory still current in the European Middle Ages and later, the four cardinal humours were blood, phlegm, choler (yellow bile), and melancholy (black bile); the variant mixtures of these humours in different persons determined their "complexions," or "temperaments," their physical and mental qualities, and their dispositions. The ideal person had the ideally proportioned mixture of the four; a predominance of one produced a person who was sanguine (Latin sanguis, "blood"), phlegmatic, choleric, or melancholic. Each complexion had specific characteristics, and the words carried much weight that they have since lost: e.g., the choleric man was not only quick to anger but also yellow-faced, lean, hairy, proud, ambitious, revengeful, and shrewd. By extension, "humour" in the 16th century came to denote an unbalanced mental condition, a mood or unreasonable caprice, or a fixed folly or vice.

Kázmér s.n. Híradó dates the surname Hirado to 1599, with the meaning 'herald, news-bringer'. (Modernly, the word means "newscast".) [Kázmér Miklós: _Régi magyar családnevek szótára_ (Magyar Nyelvtudományi Társaság, Budapest, 1993)]

Azure, an Ark of the Covenant argent.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
Language (Spanish) most important.
Spelling (byname as 'Jones' if possible) most important.

Consulting herald: Marion de Ravenwode

Both name elements are from the IGI Parish Records Extracts:

The IGI Parish Records contain evidence of Jones as a surname in Spain, but we are unsure if the people appearing in the records are Spanish:

Catharina Narcisa Magdalena Jones Female Christening 21 May 1619 San Feliu, Gerona, Gerona, Spain Batch: C89274-2

If Jones is not registerable, the submitter will accept the byname Joan:

Isabel Joan Femae Marriage 27 Jan 1591 Santa Maria La Mayor, Tordesillas, Valladolid, Spain Batch: M87369-6

Please note the following precedent:

The Ark of the Covenant is a period heraldic charge, appearing in Legh's Accedens of Armory as Sable, an Arke Or; these are attributed arms (to the Levites), but period armory nonetheless. The Ark of the Covenant is depicted here slightly in trian aspect; this is the same manner it is depicted in Legh. We are retaining the long form, Ark of the Covenant, rather than using ark, since in SCA heraldry an ark is a type of ship.

As the Ark of the Covenant appears only in the attributed arms the Tribe of Levi, the question was raised whether or not its use was presumptuous. The use of the Ark of the Covenant is not in and of itself presumptuous as we do not consider a claim to be a member of the Tribe of Levi presumptuous. [Henil von Berg, Feb. 2008, A-Caid]

36: Kiss Porch, Shire of - New Branch Name

Language (Hungarian) most important.

This is a constructed Hungarian placename using the elements Porch, a header name in Fehértói dated in this spelling to 1237 and 1277, and the prefix Kis(s)-, meaning "small".

The construction is exactly parallel to 1458 Kysbaych (Kiss Lajos s.n. Kisbajcs): compare the personal name Boych dated to 1251/1281, 1267/1270, 1287, and 1298 in Fehértói s.n. Boic. Examples of Hungarian placenames that derive from bare personal names include Buda, Szeged, Miskolc, and Győr (compare Fehértói s.nn. Buda, Seged, Miscouc, and Geur, respectively); in fact, bare personal names are probably the most common type of placename in Hungarian.

While the "little" element is most often written as the attached prefix Kys- in period, there is also 1429 Kyss Kappwss (Kiss Lajos s.n. Kiskapus) for the double 's' and the two-word format, and 1461 Kiskalatha (Kiskalota), 1388 Kismarton (Kismarton), 1426 Kis-Nemed (Kisnémedi), and 1570 Kis Ujfalu (Kisújfalu) (among others) for the 'i' instead of 'y', as well as the two-word format.
