East ILoI dated 2013-09-05

Greetings to the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known Worlde from Alys Eastern Crown:

It's September, which means that the deluge of Pennsic submissions is upon us, although it is a more manageable one than in the past. This letter includes the first third of the Pennsic submissions as well as any non-Pennsic submissions received by me before the Pennsic data was uploaded. Submissions received by me after the Pennsic upload are going to have to wait until we clear the Pennsic pile.

Commentary closes on this letter on October 5, 2013.

1: Abram of Dragon's Laire -New Name

Abram of Dragon's Laire

Sound (AY-brum) most important.

Abram is the submitter's legal given name, as seen on his Mississippi driver's license, attested by Cormac Crescent and Elsbeth Wulffeld. Abram is not obtrusively modern, as it appears in Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "English Given Names from 16th and Early 17th C Marriage Records" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/english/parishes/parishes.html) dated to 1611, albeit as a female name.

Dragon's Laire is a placename registered in the SCA, Kingdom of An Tir, in September 1996.


2: Aidan an Bhogha -New Name & New Device

Purpure, in pale three bows fesswise Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (unspecified) most important.

Aidan is found as the Anglicized form of an Irish name in 'Vatican Regesta 576: 1476', Calendar of Papal Registers Relating to Great Britain and Ireland, Volume 13: 1471-1484 (1955), pp. 53-54. (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=104979&strquery=Aidan).

an Bhogha is an Early Modern Irish descriptive byname intended to mean "of the bow," based on the word "boga" 'bow', found in EDIL:

boga bogha bóghadh

Keywords: bow; bow; curve; rainbow; Rainbow; plant

Letter: B

COLUMN: 134

Line: 001

The grammar of the byname follows the pattern of creating descriptive bynames based on the names of weapons, seen in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/Topic.shtml#Weapons). Although prior registration is no guarantee, this byname was registered in this form based on identical documentation as recently as July 2012. [Tomás an Bhogha Ó Néill, 7/2012 LoAR, A-East].

Anglicized Irish and Early Modern Irish can be combined under Appendix C of SENA.


3: Aidan na h-Innsi -New Name & New Device

Azure, in saltire a sword inverted and an anchor Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (last name 'of the island') most important.

Aidan is intended as a variant spelling of Áedán based on Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Aedan.shtml). The raw data lists <Aidain> dated 763-768 and <Aidhain> dated to 787, suggesting Aidan as a plausible Middle Irish nominative form.

na hInnsi is a Middle Irish Gaelic descriptive byname meaning "[of] the Island" also found in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/naHInnsi.shtml) with an Annals date of 922. The header form does not have the hyphen; the form in the raw data is na h-Innsi.

Vert semy of snails Or.


5: Amarie de Saint Denis -New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and gules, a sun Or between in cross four decrescents argent.

No major changes.
Sound (ah-mar-ee) most important.

Submitted at Pennsic as Amaurri de Saint Denis, conversations with the submitter between Pennsic and this ILoI indicated that the name she really wants is Amarie. Since this name is documentable, I was happy to make this change.

Amarie is a feminine given name found in the IGI/Family Search Records for England:

Amarie Gossenhill; Female; Christening; 16 Dec 1575; MANCHESTER CATHEDRAL, MANCHESTER, LANCASHIRE, ENGLAND; Batch: P00546-1

de Saint Denis is found as a byname dated to 1421, 1438 in "French Names from Paris, 1421, 1423, & 1438" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/paris1423surnames.html).

English and French can be combined under Appendix C of SENA.


6: Anna Serena -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of June 26, 2013 as submitted.

Per chevron purpure and argent, three daisies counterchanged

Although it is very dark, this submission was colored by the art tent at Pennsic Herald's Point, presumably with the correct markers. It appears more clearly purpure in person.


7: Ástríðr Elfvensdottir -New Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Gules, on a saltire Or a hedgehog sable.

Ástríðr Elfvensdottir was registered on the April 2013 LoAR via the East.


8: Aurora Whitehill -New Name & New Device

Per chevron azure and vert, a chevron and in chief three Maltese crosses one and two argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (She was raised in Whitehill, so that's what she wants to maintain.) most important.

Aurora is the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn; the name was known in medieval England and used as a poetic or literary term. The MED s.n. aurora gives the following definition and dated examples:

aurora (n.) Also aurore. [L & OF]

(a) The light of dawn, the brightness of sunrise; (b) fig. a thing of beauty or promise.

(a) (a1398) * Trev. Barth.(Add 27944) 126a/a: The dawinge is ende of þe ny3t..& is bigynnynge of þe day þat comeþ aftir, and hatte aurora..as it were a goldene houre, for it sendiþ schinynge coloure as it were colour of golde. c1430(c1386) Chaucer LGW (Benson-Robinson) 774: Aurora with the stremes of hire hete Hadde dreyed up the dew of herbes wete. a1450(c1433) Lydg. St.Edm.(Hrl 2278) 431/1014: His labour to redresse, Toward Aurora the martir..To hym appered. (1449) Metham AC (Gar 141) 249: Palamedon..lay in rest, Abydyng sum tokyn qwan Aurora schuld sprynge. a1500(?c1440) Lydg. HGS (Lnsd 699) 561: Whan men dresse Toward Aurora agey[n] til thei arrise.

(b) a1450 O lewde book (Tan 346) 22: Of al goode she is þe best lyvyng. Aurore of gladnes and day of lustynes, Lucerne a ny3t with heuenli influence [etc.]. c1490 Lydg. Stella Celi(1) (Chet 6709) 38: Crystall Paleys of owre gostely glorye, Gladdest Aurora of most Magnificence, Mayde & Moder..preserue from strooke of Pestylence.

There is a documented pattern of late period English names based on the names of goddess or demi-goddess figures from Greek mythology. The recent registration of Persephone as a given name in February 2013. [Persephone Odymsy, 2/2013 LoAR, A-Calontir] considered the following entries from the IGI/Family Search records:

Phoebe Defraine 20 Jul 1574 Toddington, Bedford, England, batch P00391-1
Dione Bowdon 20 Oct 1576 Horsington, Lincoln, England, batch C02943-3
Clymene Pinder 19 Jan 1622 South Creake, Norfolk, England, batch C04142-1
Selene Neale 04 Aug 1583 Bideford, Devon, England, batch C05032-1
Maia Newberye 08 Dec 1616 Aldermaston, Berkshire, England, batch C15515-1
Thalia Smith 25 Mar 1609 Pillerton Priors, Warwick, England, batch C04376-2

Aurora seems to fit this pattern, particularly given the evidence of poetical and literary uses of "aurora" as a positive noun that parents might wish to use for a child's name.

Whitehill is a constructed locative intended to mean 'the white high/hilly land': Watts, s.n. Whitefield GMan SD 8105. '(The) white open land'. Whitefeld 1292 ibid., s.n. Whitesheet Hill - Wilts ST 9524. 'Hill called Whitesheet'. Whiteshete Hill c. 1540.

Or chapé, a Thor's hammer inverted gules.

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of February 21, 2013 as submitted.

Breuse's previous device, Per pale engrailed azure and barry wavy azure and argent, a mullet of eight points argent charged with a cross moline azure, was returned on the East's 15 May 2013 LoD for the unidentifiability of the line of division. The resubmission changes the design to remedy the problem that caused the return.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1986, via the East

Gyronny of sixteen Or and sable, a bell within an annulet argent.

This submission is to be associated with Order of the Beacon of Carillion

16: Constança Navarra -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of July 27, 2013 as submitted.

Per pale argent and sable, a chalice and a wolf sejant ululant counterchanged, on a chief Or a bunch of grapes bendwise purpure

Constança's first device submission appeared on the June 6, 2013 Eastern ILoI. That submission was withdrawn during commentary and resubmitted on the July 2013 ILoI with a different design. That resubmission, Per pale argent and sable, a chalice and a wolf sejant ululant counterchanged, on a chief Or a bunch of grapes slipped and leaved bendwise proper, was returned on the July 12, 2013 Eastern LoD for having a complexity count of nine, plus Step from Period Practice for the use of a wolf ululant.

This resubmission changes the tincture of the grapes from proper (vert and purpure) to wholly purpure, reducing the complexity count to eight, which is registerable even with the SFPP for the wolf ululant.

Please note that this device is not marshalled armory pursuant to SENA A.6.F.3.c, which says:

c. Per Pale Fields with Multiple Charge Groups: As marshalled arms using a per pale line of division were not inherited, the addition of a charge or charge group which crosses the per pale line is generally sufficient to remove the unmistakable appearance that a portion of the field is independent armory. The addition of a bordure or chief that does not itself appear to be part of two distinct original arms also removes that appearance. In general, a chief or bordure which has poor contrast with one side of the field or one that is charged so that identical charges or parts of charges appear on both sides of the line of division or bordure meets this standard.

(emphasis added).


17: Eli of Bergental -New Name & New Device

Vert, in pale an open book argent, bound, and two human figures respectant Or.

Sound (EEEE-lye) most important.

Eli is a masculine given name found in "Late 16th Century English Given Names" by Talan Gwynek (heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/eng16/eng16alpha.html).

Gwenhwyvar is a dated form in Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn's "A Simple Guide to Constructing 16th Century Welsh Names (in English Contexts" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welsh16.html). The submitter would prefer the "modern" spelling of Gwenhwyfar but will accept the attested spelling of "Gwenhwyvar" if necessary. Given that Gwervyl/Gwerfyl appears in the same data, commenters are asked to consider whether the spelling with an 'f' is plausible.

atte Lake is dated to the first year of Edward III's reign (1327/8) in Bardsley. pg. 463, s.n. Lake.

Welsh and English are part of the same Language Group under Appendix C of SENA.

Pennsic Herald's Point identified a possible conflict with Christall Gordon (March 1999, Caid): Azure, a dove volant wings elevated and addorsed argent sustaining in its beak a ladle palewise Or. Herald's Point concluded that this device is clear based on the following analysis: "One DC for base. We pulled Christall's badge, the ladle appears large enough to count as a sustained secondary, giving a second DC."
