Please have commentary to me by 25 March 2014. Thank you!

1: Áine inghean Uí Cellaig -New Name & New Device

Per chevron azure and argent, two owls gardant respectant argent and a tree eradicated azure, trunked sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Áine is a Middle Irish Gaelic female given name, found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Áine," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Aine.shtml. Cellaig is the genitive form of the Middle Irish Gaelic male given name Cellach, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Cellach.shtml. inghean Uí is the standard Irish clan affiliation particle for women, "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names," Sharon Krossa, http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname.

Although owls are gardant by default (so it needn't be stated in the blazon), when they are in a respectant orientation, it seems a good idea to mention it in the blazon, just to make sure that they're not giving each other the hairy eyeball.


2: Alexander de Burdegala -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2013, via Atenveldt

Per pale purpure and vert, a Bacchus face argent and on a chief wavy Or, three goblets gules.

The blazon for the primary charge is seen in Parker, under "Faces."


3: Allesia de Canaberiis -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2011, via Atenveldt

Per chevron wavy Or and gules, two otters couchant respectant in chevron sable and an edelweiss blossom argent.

Anastacia is dated to 1549 in "Names Found in Anglicized Irish Documents: Women's Names," Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Feminine.shtml.

Blackmore is found in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 47 s.n. Blackmore, dated to 1576.


5: Andrew mac Bran of Antrim -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Andrew is the client's legal given name. His legal father has the registered SCA name Bran mac Padraig of Antrim. His mother, Deletha of Anandyrdale, declares that Andrew is her legal son and Bran is her legal spouse and Andrew's father, and that Bran permits the use of elements of his name for Andrew's name.


6: Atenveldt, Barony of -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1981, via Atenveldt

Order of the Argent Arrow of the Barony of Atenveldt

Gules, two palm trees couped crossed in saltire in chief a crescent-headed arrow fesswise argent.

No changes.

The branch name was registered in January 1981. The name is clear of the Kingdom of Caid's Order of the Argent Arrow by the addition of the Barony's name.

The crescent-shaped arrowhead is a period artifact; while somewhat more reminiscent of a two-tined fork, it is found in the 16th C arms of Motringer (Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry, http://mistholme.com/?s=arrow ).

The badge is evocative of the Barony's badge Gules, two palm trees couped crossed in saltire in chief a roundel argent. (of the Pearl of Youth).


7: Atenveldt, Barony of -New Order Name Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1981, via Atenveldt

Order of the Gules Hurlebatte of the Barony of Atenveldt

Old Item: Order of the Red Hurlebatte, to be retained as an alternate name.
No changes.

The Order's name was registered in February 2010. It is being change to use the heraldic tincture in the name and to add the locative portion of the name, as is seen in the names of several other Baronial Orders: Sable Axe of the Barony of Atenveldt, Purpure Clarion of the Barony of Atenveldt, Vert Glove of the Barony of Atenveldt, Azure Chalice of the Barony of Atenveldt. If registered, the old name should be retained as an alternate.


8: Aviva Dumas -New Name

No major changes.

Aviva is a Jewish female name found in Navarre in 1357, probably of Arabic origin; there is a similar masculine name Avivi, Abibi ("Jewish Women's Names in Navarre," Julie Kahan, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/navarra.html.

Dumas is found as a Spanish byname, with the date of 1614 for the christening date of Maria Speransa Dumas, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/F5NV-G29, C89169-9.


9: Broccán Ó Staimna -New Name & New Device

Sable, in pale three eagles.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Irish Gaelic) most important.
Culture (Irish) most important.

Broccán is an Old Irish Gaelic name name, dated 720-877.

Stiamna is a Middle Irish Gaelic male name, dated 1169-1182 (no genitive form is provided, but an individual who arrived in Ireland during the 1169 Anglo-Norman invasion is documented with several spellings of the byname, one being Stiamhna, which is the early Modern Irish form). Both elements are found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Masculine Given Names," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/.


10: Cathryn Sylvestrov -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The name is Russian.

I can only find Catherine names spelled with a K- (Katerina, Katerinka, Kata), themselves being diminutives or variants of Ekaterina ("A Dictionary of Period Russian Names," http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/). Silvestr is a male given name; Sil'vestr is dated to 1574 (ibid.). While documentation provided for the byname comes from Russian Surnames, B.O. Unbegaun, it seems that the patronymic should end in an -a to agree with the feminine gender of the given name, hence Sylvestrova ("Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names - Grammar, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html).


11: Cerridwen ingen Dubhghaill -New Name & New Device

Argent, three double roses purpure and argent barbed and seeded proper and issuant from base a mountain vert.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Cerridwen is SCA compatible given name according to Laurel Precedent (07.01 A-Calontir) "Submitted as Ceiridwen Bach, only the spellings Ceridwen and Cerridwen have been ruled SCA compatible in August 1995." It was registered again without comment to Cerridwen Coedwig in August 2007.

Dubhghaill is the genitive form of the Early Modern Irish Gaelic male given name Dubhghall, found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Dubgall / Dubhghall," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Dubgall.shtml. The original documentation for the byname was Academy of Saint Gabriel report 1194, http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/1194.txt, and it shows the patronymic particle spelled as inghean. This could be read either as an Irish Gaelic or a Scottish Gaelic byname.

Appendix C of SENA, Regional Naming Groups and Their Mixes, permits the mixing of Welsh and Gaelic name elements.


12: Conrad Bombast von Trittenheim -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in June of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: Mstislav syn Volui, to be released.
Language most important.
Culture (15th-16th C Germany) most important.

The name is German.

Conrad is a 15th C male given name found in "German Names from Rottweil, Baden-Württemberg, 1441," Sara L. Uckelman, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/rottweil1441.html.

Bombast is a 16th C. surname, given as a 1559 christening date for Anna Bombast, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N8MV-861, Batch C96944-1.

The locative refers to Trittenheim, a city on the Middle Moselle River, founded as a Frankish settlement. The humanist Johannes Zeller, a Benedictine abbot known as Johannes Trithemius, was born there in 1462; he was a noted cryptographer and occultist. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trittenheim#History; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Trithemius).


13: Dawn Greenwall -New Name

The name is English.

Dawn is the client's legal given name (attested by Parhelium Herald). It is also dated to 1573 in Hampshire, with Dawn Jacobe's christening (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N6LZ-3P1), Batch C00813-3.

Greenwall is dated to 1628, England to Nichollas Greenwall (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NVRR-3ZG), Batch M00213-3. Her father has the registered name Wade Greenwall.


14: Deletha of Anandyrdale -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2007, via Atenveldt

Or, a squirrel rampant and a bordure embattled sable.


15: Dominic de la Mer -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2008, via Atenveldt

(Fieldless) A fox sejant gardant queue-forchy gules.

The badge uses an element from her registered device, Or, a fox sejant guardant queue-forchy proper maintaining in its mouth a feather purpure, all between three roundels vert.


16: Elizabeth Clough -New Name & New Device

Elizabeth Clough

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling most important.

The name is English.

Elizabeth is a female name dated 1205-1600 with this spelling in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: Elizabeth," Talan Gwynek, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Elizabeth.

Clough is surname dated to 1279 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, s.n. Clough, Cleugh, Cluff et al.


17: Finán mac Tigernaig -New Name & New Device

Finán mac Tigernaig

The name is Irish Gaelic.

Finán is a male given name found in "100 Most Popular Men's Names in Early Medieval Ireland," compiled by Heather Rose Jones, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/irish100/; this is a roughly pre-Norman Conquest collection of names.

The byname is also found in the same source, with the nominative form being Tigernach. (It is also the byname used by his brother, Michael mac Tiernaig.)

I've included the coloration of the beak, comb and wattles, as it is a major portion of the cock's head. This is a lovely design.


18: Ginvilas Ašarų -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

The name is Lithuanian.

Ginvilas is a Lithuanian given name, http://www.lituanus.org/1978/78_3_02.htm, "Pre-Christian Name Giving in Lithuania," K.A. Girvilas. Ginvilas was a prince of Lithuania,1282-1315, https://histfam.familysearch.org/search.php?mylastname=&myfirstname=Ginvilas&mybool=AND&offset=0&sea rch=Search).

The byname is a descriptive, meaning "insensitive, insensible, impassive, tearless, rocky, dead," but with further Googling, it actually seems to mean lachrymal (prone to crying, weepy): the appropriate term for impassive or tearless should be nejatrus ašarų, and for "tearless" specifically, be ašarų or neliejantis ašarų (http://translate.google.com/?hl=en#en/lt/tearless; http://www.zodynas.lt/zodynai/anglu-lietuviu/paieska/tearless).

The client would like a term that is specifically "tearless," and be ašarų seems closest to his original submission.


19: Grigor Medvedov -New Name

The name is Russian.

Grigor is a diminutive of Grigorii; it is dated to 1216 as Grigor and to 1328-41 as Grigor' in "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section G," http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/g.html.

Medved is a male given name dated to 1495 (as Medved'), http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/ma.html; the citation gives Medvedev as a patronymic form, 1523.

His original byname follows the construction found in Paul's Grammar section, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html, which uses -ov or -ev as a patronymic ending. I don't know if one form is more correct than the other.


20: Ilandria Brin -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2012, via Atenveldt

Sable, three triquetras in pale Or, a bordure compony azure and argent.

The name was registered July 2012.

The original submission, Sable, three triquetras in pall points outward Or, a bordure compony azure and argent., was returned by Laurel July 2012 "for not being reliably blazonable, which is a violation of section VII.7.b of the Rules for Submissions, and section A1C of the Standards for Evaluation, both of which require an emblazon to be describable in heraldic terms. The specific orientation of the triquetras here is difficult to describe or recognize."

The placement and orientation of the triquetras has been modified to a more identifiable arrangement.


21: Jacqueline du Bosc -New Name & New Device

Gules, a cross checky sable and argent between four hearts argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (none given) most important.
Culture (none given) most important.

Jacqueline is the client's legal given name. It is also dated to 1573 as an English given name, and as the christening date for Jacqueline de Coumont, C04947-1, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/J3VW-YMK.

The surname <DuBosc> recorded around 1500 in Bordeaux, citing Friedemann and Scott's "Names Found in Commercial Documents from Bordeaux, 1470-1520" where the name of Vincent Dubosc appears (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/bordeaux.html). The surname in the spelling Dubosc also appears in a Norman context in Elliot's "Sixteenth Century Norman Names" at http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/norman16.html.

The submitter wishes to use the two word spelling used in the registered name of her mother Ann du Bosc, and her sister Lie du Bosc.

The proposed device is clear of but similar in design to that of her mother Ann, Vert, a cross checky sable and argent between four cauldrons Or., and her sister Lie, Azure, a cross countercompony argent and sable between four trees couped argent. (All this and no pears?)


22: Juliette Dashwood -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2013, via Atenveldt

Per bend argent and purpure, a quail contourny sable within a bordure counterchanged.

Old Item: Per chevron throughout Or and purpure, two balls of yarn azure and a Lacy knot argent., to be retained as a badge.


23: Kathleen of Anandyrdale -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Kathleen is the client's legal middle name and can be used as a given name.

Anandyrdale is the byname of her mother, Deletha of Anandyrdale. Johnston (s.n. Annandale) dates the form Anandresdale to 1297. John Barbour's poem "The Brus" (early 14th C.) contains the spelling Anandyrdale.


24: Lena d'Siena -New Name

Language (none given) most important.
Culture (none given) most important.
Spelling most important.

The name is Italian.

Lena is a female given name found in "Feminine Given Names from the Online Catasto of Florence of 1427," Arval Benicoeur, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/catasto/.

Siena is a medieval city located in Tuscany and noted for its cathedral; it was also a 12th C. rival in commerce with its neighbor Florence (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/italy/tuscany/siena/history).

d' is a locative article, but I think that it would be more correct as da.


25: Lucian Lenoir -New Name & New Device

Per fess Or and purpure, a jester's cap conjoined with a mask of comedy in pale, a bordure indented counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

The name is French.

Lucian is a male given name found as an alternative spelling of Lucie in Dauzat, p. 400 s.n. Lucien. Lucian is also found in Withycombe p. 200 as a male given name, s.n. Lucian and dates Lucianus to 1166, 1200, 1210.

Lenoir is a surname found in Dauzat, p. 452 s.n. Noir, referring to a dark/black coloration.


26: Mercurio da Spin -New Name & New Device

Per saltire argent and sable, four bats counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Language (None given) most important.

Meaning most important.

The name is Italian.

Mercurio is a male given name dated to in 1608 in "Names from Sixteenth Century Venice," Juliana de Luna, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/16thcvenice.html.

da Spin is an Italian locative, "of Spino," found in the same source.

While it was Per saltire argent and sable, four bats displayed counterchanged., it seems that something went awry, and the field should've been Per saltire sable and argent... to provide 1 DC for the field and 1 DC for the tincture of the charges. Whoops.


27: Miguel Alejandro Mendoza -New Name & New Device

Per pale gules and argent, in pale a sheaf of arrow inverted sable and a vol per pale argent and sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

The name is Spanish, and elements are found in "16th Century Spanish Names," Elsbeth Anne Roth, http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~kvs/heraldry/spanish16/.

Miguel is a male given name found in Elsbeth's work, and Mendoza is a locative found there.

Alejandro is a male given name dated to 1582 as a christening date for Alejandro Callado, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FFJ5-4FH, Batch C02609-0. Elsbeth notes that while a patronymic at this time often takes patronymic form originally derived from a Latin genitive form, there are examples of patronymics that use an unaltered form of the father's name. The client prefers not to include the locative particle de in the name.

The arrows do need some beefing up.


28: Morgan MacDuff and Dawn Silverrose -New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name (Morgan MacDuff) registered exactly as it appears in July of 2008, via Atenveldt
OSCAR finds the name (Dawn Silverrose) registered exactly as it appears in June of 2010, via Atenveldt

Fellowship of the Skulls

Fellowship has been used in the Society several times as a household designator with the earliest registration for Fellowship of the White Bear in November, 1979 and the most recent for Fellowship of the Oaken Blade in November, 2002.

Skull is found with this spelling in 1615, according to the COED (boy, howdy, it was sure seen a lot in print, overwhelmingly with a scul(l) spelling!).


29: Odette Steingrim -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a willow tree and on a chief rayonny argent, three demi-swans displayed sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Odette is a female given name dated to 1508 for Odette Pocaire in Archives nationales (France), "Hommages rendus a la Chambre de France: Chambre des comptes de Paris, se/rie P, XIVe-XVIe siecles: inventaire analytique" (Paris: Les Archives: Diffuse/e/ par la Documentation franc,aise, 1982-1985.), volume 2, entry 1164. Although this source modernizes the spellings of given names, it's likely that the name in the actual source was Odette.

The client has provided a Letter of Permission to use the element Steingrim from her legal stepfather, whose SCA name is registered as Eirik Ising Steingrim.


30: Ophelia le Fayre -New Name

The name is English.

Ophelia is a female given name dated to 1620 as a christening name for Ophelia Young, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/ND7T-ZLF, Batch I07101-5.

Per pale azure and argent, a butterfly counterchanged.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Raynagh is a female Irish given name found in "Names and Naming Practices in the Red Book of Ormond (Ireland 14th Century): Given Names," Heather Rose Jones, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/lateirish/ormond-given.html.

Timothy is a male given name from the Greek, a New Testament name that was used as an equivalent of Tadc, according to Irish Names, O Corrain and Maguire, p. 168 s.n. Tadc:Tadhg. Tadc itself is a Middle Irish Gaelic and Tadhg an Early Modern Irish Gaelic male name ("Index of Names in Irish Annals: Tadc / Tadhg," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Tadc.shtml).

ingen huí is a particle for "female descendant of," but I have no idea if the more common inghean Uí would be more or less correct.


33: Roan Feórna -New Name & New Device

Azure, an heraldic harbor seal erect and issuant from chief a demi-sun argent eclipsed sable.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
Sound (second priority, "Roane" with long -o-) most important.
Spelling (first priority) most important.

Roan is an Irish male given name dated to 400 AD found in The Genealogies, Tribes, and Customs of Hy-Fiachrach: Commonly Called O'Dowda's Country, Duald Mac Firbis, Giolla Iosa Mór MacFirbis, http://books.google.com/books?id=fgMGAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA465&dq=Roan+filius+Conchnamha&hl=en&sa=X&ei=P-wYU 870FcrzoATU-4CwBw&ved=0CDEQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=Roan%20filius%20Conchnamha&f=false. The text refers to an individual by the name of Roan filius Conchnamha, who was presented to St. Patrick (c. 385-461 AD), thus dating the name to 5th C Ireland.

Feórna is a descriptive byname dated to 741 in "Dated Names Found in Ó Corráin & Maguire's Irish Names," Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/ocm/OCM-DesAlpha.shtml, associated with the given name Flann. The client doesn't care about the gender of the name. She is first most interested in the spelling of the name, and second in the sound of it (Roan).

She has made a common harbor seal (which is usually fairly log-like in appearence) into a more dynamic and heraldic form of the seal.


34: Robert Heinrich and Annya Sergeeva -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2012, via Atenveldt

Argent, a wolf's head caboshed bendwise gules maintaining in its month a sword, the blade enflamed Or.

The previous submission, Argent, a wolf passant guardant and maintaining in its mouth a sword gules., was returned by Laurel in July 2013 because "Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as sustaining, the sword here is less than half the visual weight of the wolf, and so it is a maintained charge. This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Katerine atte Wyshe de la Rye, Argent, a fox passant gules within a bordure per saltire sable and gules., and with the device of Anne of Foxwold, Argent, a fox passant proper within a bordure engrailed vert. [Vulpes fulva]. In both cases, there is a DC for the removal of the bordure, but nothing for the difference between a fox and a wolf, nor anything for the maintained sword."

This is a redesign.


45: Wilhelm Tepes -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Spelling most important.

Wilhelm is a male given name, the German form of William and found in "German Names from 1495,"Aryanhwy merch Catmael, www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/german1495.html,

Tepes, "the impaler," is found once 1456-1462, as a byname unique to Vlad Tepes, and is cited in "Names from the Royal Lines of Moldavia and Wallachia," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/other/romanian.html.

However, Wilhelm is clearly not Vlad, nor is it known that Vlad had offspring with this name. SENA's Appendix C: Regional Naming Groups and Their Mixes suggests that Hungarian/Romanian name elements in the time period 1100-1600 can be combined with German elements.


46: Yehoshua ben Abraam -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2009, via Atenveldt

Or, two pea-plants fructed and entwined about a pole, on a chief vert three stars of David two and one Or.

The name was registered July 2009.

The client prefers the stars of David arranged in this manner: we're not sure whether it can be done (well, it can be done, we're just not sure if it's actually allowed, or if this is something that would be left to artistic license without expanding upon the blazon). Pea-plants are seen in the 1781 arms of Gorokhovets (Vladimir oblast), Russia, in Civic Heraldry, http://www.civicheraldry.com/page/2964. [The city itself is first mentioned in a 1239 chronicle, when it had been sacked by the Mongols. The name of the city arises from the Russian word for peas, gorokh.] The client is a geneticist. (Heh.)


Thank you all for your continuing hard work for the Atenveldt College of Heralds and the people of Atenveldt (particularly at these supposedly less-frenetic post-War times!).
