Outlands LoI dated 2014-03-21

From the Office of Rampart Herald

Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)

rampart@outlandsheralds.org

Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald send her greetings.

What follows is the March 2014 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor & his illustrious commentary group, Schwarzdrachen, Conrad von Zollern, Aspen Herald, Jibra'il `Attar, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute comments on OSCAR.

It is my intent to register this March the following items from the Outlands College of Heralds.

This item was on the 06-2014 LoAR

1: Jacobus Locard - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Outlands LoI of February 28, 2014 as submitted.

Per chevron embattled gules and argent, two fetterlocks Or and a sea-stag gules

Submitter's name appears on the January 2014 LoP (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=2378).

Submitter's previous device, Per chevron indented gules and argent, two fetterlocks Or and a sea-stag gules, appears on the January 2014 LoP (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=2378) but was withdrawn by submitter for a redraw.

2: Magnus Nikolasson - New Name & New Device

This item was on the 06-2014 LoAR

3: Zephirine Isabeau Matheu de Lymos - New Name & New Device

Purpure, a bear rampant contourny and on a chief Or two grape clusters proper

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language most important.
Culture (Occitan/French) most important.

[Zephirine] - From the March 2008 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2008/03/08-03lar.html) - Zephirine le Megre via Trimaris: "Submitted as Zepherine le Megre, no documentation was submitted and none found showing this is a period spelling of this name. The name appears as Zephirinus in Polychronicon Ranulphi Higden maonachi Cestrensis; together with the English translations of John Trevisa and of an unknown writer of the fifteenth century, as the name of an early pope and saint. This would yield a possible 15th C vernacular Zephirin or Zephirine (although we have no evidence that this particular pope was venerated in England; the source for both the submitted documentation and the documentation found by the commenters). We have changed the name to Zephirine le Megre in order to register it."

[Isabeau] - 'Names from Lallaing 1384 - 1600' Domhnall na Moicheirghe, dated to 1536-1597 (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/lallaing_names.html)

[Matheu] - 'Occitan names from Saint Flour, France, 1380-1385' Aryanhwy merch Catmael, unmarked patronymic (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/saintflour.html)

[de Lymos] - 'Late Period Feminine Names from the South of France' Talan Gwynek, toponymic locative (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/latefrenchfem.html)

Further support given by Volk:

The LoAR statement "This would yield a possible 15th C vernacular Zephirin or Zephirine" was interpreted that Zephirin would be a masculine name formed from the Zephirinus name and that Zephirine would be a feminine name formed from the Zephirinus name, not that both were masculine variants.


Thus ends the March 2014 Letter of Intent.

In Service,

Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a

Rampart Herald
