Outlands LoI dated 2014-05-31

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 May 2014 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor, Orle, Rohese de Dinan, Blue Tyger, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute comments on OSCAR.

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

This item was on the 08-2014 LoAR

1: Abigail MacNaught - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (Abigail, McNaught or Maknauchtan) most important.

This item was on the 08-2014 LoAR

3: Alamanda de la Roca - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2010, via the Outlands

Per chevron azure and argent, two mullets of eight points Or and a salamander passant reguardant sable enflamed proper

Submitter's previous device, Per chevron azure and argent, two mullets of eight points Or and a salamander passant reguardant sable enflamed proper, was returned on the December 2013 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/12/13-12lar.html#341) with the following:

{This device is returned for conflict with the device of Benito de Sicilia, Per chevron azure and argent, two suns Or and a Maltese cross gules. There is a DC for changing the type, or tincture, of the bottommost charge, but we can only get a maximum of one DC for all changes made to the "lesser" half of a charge group as defined by SENA A5C2d. As stated in SENA Appendix M, mullets with eight or more points are not considered different from suns.}

Submitter's previous device, Per chevron azure and argent two mullets of eight points argent and a salamander passant regardant sable enflamed proper, was returned on the March 2013 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/03/13-03lar.html) with the following:

{This device is returned for conflict with the device of Deporodh of Rannoch, reblazoned elsewhere on this letter as Per chevron azure and argent, two mullets argent and a birch leaf vert, the device of Kirsten Thorsteinsdottir, Per chevron azure and argent, two compass stars argent and a lion's head erased gules, and the device of Alrikr af Stjarnaheimi, Per chevron throughout azure and argent, two compass stars and a pithon embowed counterchanged. In all cases there is only one DC for the changes to only half of the primary charge group. As the bottommost of three charges is considered a special case "half" of the charge group under SENA A5C2d, any changes to it may only receive a maximum of one DC. Even though it has changed in both type and tincture, we still can only count it as one DC.}

Submitter's previous device, Per chevron azure and argent, three mullets of eight point one and two argent and a salamander rampant sable, was returned on the April 2012 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2012-03-lop/1204-lor.html) with the following:

{Return for re-draw. This device is not on the standard shield shape from the approved forms, so it makes it hard to tell, but the line of division is way too low on the field. (Using the guides on the standard form, the chevron should have as much of the point above the horizontal marks as it has below at the sides). Further, the mullets are too small to really be considered co-primary. Finally, the charge at the bottom was not readily identified as a salamander, being described as the Geico Gecko or a ferret. If this is to be a heraldic salamander it needs flames. If it is to be a natural salamander it needs to either be tergiant or drawn very carefully, with appropriate detailing, in order to allow the viewer to distinguish it from a weasel or ferret.}

Submitter's previous device, Per chevron azure and argent two mullets of eight points argent and a salamander rampant sable enflamed proper, was returned on the September 2012 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2012-08-lop/1209-lor.html) with the following:

{Returned for redraw. This is not a proper rendition of flames proper. Flames proper are alternating tongues of gules and Or. Flames Or fimbriated gules (which is the closest to what this is) have been disallowed for decades now. Acceptable images of a heraldic salamander enflamed can be seen here: https://oscar.sca.org/cImages/54/2012-08-09/14-44-16_Salamander.jpg and here: https://oscar.sca.org/cImages/520/2012-08-09/19-16-47_Alamanda%20de%20la%20Roca2_Color.jpg}

Submitter obtained permission to conflict from Benito de Sicilia.

4: Antoine de Vallier - New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister argent and gules, a lion's head erased sable and a fleur-de-lys Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (French late 16th century) most important.
Culture (Southern France) most important.

[Antoine] - 'ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 1870' Adelaide de Beaumont (http://www.s-gabriel.org/1870); 'ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 2554' Arval Benicoeur (http://www.s-gabriel.org/2554); [Dauzat] Second ed., pg. 10, under the header 'Antoine'; [Morlet] pg. 44

This item was on the 08-2014 LoAR

5: Arngerdr Hergeirsdottir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

[Arngerđr] - 'Viking Names found in Landnámabók' Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html)

[dottir] - 'ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 3143' Guaire mac Guaire (http://www.s-gabriel.org/3143)

Note: Arngerđr is the mundane daughter of Hergier Edvinson, thus the last name of Hergierrdottir.

The name was changed at Kingdom to <Arngerdr Hergeirsdottir> from <Arngerđr Hergierrdottir> based on commentary/additional documentation. The submitter, by way of the submitting herald, has consented to this change.

Additional Documentation provided by Goutte d'Eau:

<Arngerðr> with an edh (not a dyet!) appears on page 7 of Geirr Bassi.

<Hergeirr> in the genitive becomes <Hergeirs>, hence <Hergeirsdóttir>.

"The name <Hergeirr> was in occasional use in Norway and Iceland in the 14th and 15th centuries [1]."

[1] Lind, E.H., Norsk-Isla:ndska Dopnamn ock Fingerade Namn fra*n Medeltiden (Uppsala & Leipzig: 1905-1915, sup. Oslo, Uppsala and Kobenhavn: 1931), s.n. Hergeirr. The name is attested in Norwegian patronymics in 1334 and 1487; and in Iceland the name <Hergeirr Arnason> was recorded in 1390.

In this case, knowing what those patronymic forms are, is rather important. Lind columns 518-9 provides (with Diplomatarium Norvegicum and Diplomatarium Islandicum entries added):

Anðor Hergeirs s. (1334) DN: <Anðore Hergeirs syni> http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=229&s=n&str=Hergeirs

Andor Hærgæirs son (1340) http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=3716&s=n&str=H_rg_irs%

Olaff Hærgørsson (1471) http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=4460&s=n&str=Hergeirs%

Esbiorn Hergeirsson (1487) http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=4460&s=n&str=Hergeirs%

For Icelandic: hergeirs arnasonar (genitive) 1390 p. 450 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/450/mode/2up

arni hergeirs son (1409) p. 723 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/722/mode/2up

In all of these cases (and incidentally for Old Norse, too), where the genitive is used, it is <Hergeirs->.

Diplomatarium Islandicum shows that <-dottir> was still used, with: Asa Eireksdottir (1391) p. 454 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/454/mode/2up

margret þorvalldzdottir (1401) p. 671 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/670/mode/2up

Gudrun styrsdottir (1406) p. 708 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/708/mode/2up

Diplomatarium Norvegicum also shows this <-dottir> ending, with:

Jngibiorg Gunnarsdottir 1302 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=1189&s=n&str=%dottir

Gudrid Jons dottir 1357 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=3855&s=n&str=%dottir

Margretta Sveins dottir 1392 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=1663&s=n&str=%dottir

DN also has:

Arngerdr Þorgils dotter 1339 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=3710&s=n&str=Arnger%

So a fully 14th c. form of this name could be <Arngerdr Hergeirsdottir>

6: Conall Óg mac Dabhídh - Resub Alternate Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2005, via the Outlands

Date Chotaro Motohisa

Gules, in pale a valknut and a trimount couped within an orle argent.

No major changes.
Language (Japanese) most important.
Spelling (Spelling should start with D C M from mundane name) most important.

[Date] - is an actual documented occurring surname from period. NCMJ pg 34 Surnames of Daimyou... plus Historical Surnames pg 316:Appendix. Submitter also notes that Date has been previous registered.

[Chotaro] - occurs somewhat frequently in actual use and period. Bryant, 2004 (scan attached)

[Motohisa] - 'Japanese Formal Masculine Given Names' Solveig Throndardottir (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/solveig/nanori/nanorim.html)

Submitter's previous name, Daiyama Chotaro Motohisa, was returned on the June 2011 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2011/06/11-06lar.html) with the following: {While Daiyama appears occasionally as a modern form, there is no evidence that it is a plausible period surname. The problem is that Dai- is a Chinese reading of the character while -yama is a Japanese reading of the character. We do not have evidence of such combinations in period. The completely Japanese Oyama is found as a period placename and is registerable. However, changing or dropping this element is a major change, which the submitter does not allow. Therefore the name must be returned. Commenters questioned whether a relatively casual transcription like this is registerable, as it does not indicate differences between long and short vowels. We allow relatively casual transcriptions as long as they are used consistently through an entire name, as is the case here.}


This item was on the 08-2014 LoAR

7: Ellisif Hergeirsdottir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

[Ellisif] - 'ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 2721' Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/2721)

'ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 2696' Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/2696)

[dottir] - 'ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 3143' Guaire mac Guaire (http://www.s-gabriel.org/3143)

Note: Ellisif is the physical daughter of Hergierr Edvinson, hence the name of "Hergierrdottir".

The was changed at Kingdom to <Ellisif Hergeirsdottir> from <Ellisif Hergierrdottir> per the commentary/additional documentation provided by Goutte d'Eau. The submitter has consented to the change.:

<Ellisif> also appears on Geirr Bassi p. 9.

<Hergeirr> in the genitive becomes <Hergeirs>, hence <Hergeirsdóttir>.

According to Gunnvǫr silfrahárr's Old Norse Men's Names (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml), Hergeirr appears in: Fellows-Jensen, Gillian. Scandinavian Personal Names in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. Copenhagen. Akademisk Forlag. 1968. pp. 139, 344, and 349

<Hergeirr>

St. Gabriel Report 2856 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2856.txt) says:

The name <Hergeirr> was in occasional use in Norway and Iceland in the 14th and 15th centuries [1].

[1] Lind, E.H., Norsk-Isla:ndska Dopnamn ock Fingerade Namn fra*n Medeltiden (Uppsala & Leipzig: 1905-1915, sup. Oslo, Uppsala and Kobenhavn: 1931), s.n. Hergeirr. The name is attested in Norwegian patronymics in 1334 and 1487; and in Iceland the name <Hergeirr Arnason> was recorded in 1390.

Esbiorn Hergeirsson (1487) http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=4460&s=n&str=Hergeirs%

For Icelandic:

arni hergeirs son (1409) p. 723 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/722/mode/2up

Gudrun styrsdottir (1406) p. 708 https://archive.org/stream/diplomatariumisl03kaupuoft#page/708/mode/2up

Diplomatarium Norvegicum also shows this <-dottir> ending, with:

<Ingihrid Eyuindardottir> 1403 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=591&s=n&str=%dottir

<Margaretta Eilifs dottir> 1425 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=1816&s=n&str=%dottir

<Gwdhrwn Haquona dottir> <ffrv Ælin Laurentza dottir> and <dottir Hælghe ffrv Katerine> 1476 http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=13747&s=n&str=%dottir

Which leaves us with <Ellisif>:

St. Gabriel report 2721 says:

http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2721.txt

In the late 13th century the name occurs a few times in Sweden, but only in Latin documents, where it appears as <Elisabeth>, <Elysabeth>, <Elizabet>, <Elizabeth>, <Elsif> (for a woman who appears elsewhere as <Elizabeth>), and a Latinized version of <Elsif>. At about the same time in Denmark it appears as <Ellesefh>, <Elsif>, <Elizabeth>, and <Elisif>, and a little earlier, in the 1260s, as <Elysabeth> and <Elysiby>. [2, 3] In the West Norse area there is one Icelandic instance of <Ellisif> from the 13th century, but after Harald Hardraade's wife the name is not found again in Norway until 1352. [4, 5].... All in all it seems unlikely that a native Scandinavian woman would have been named <Elisabeth> or <Ellisif> before about 1250. At that point we think that a Scandinavian 'Elisabeth' would actually have been known in Sweden and Denmark as <Elisif> or <Elsif> and in Iceland as <Ellisif>, though she could certainly have been recorded as <Elisabeth> in a Latin document. [9]

The 13th century <Ellisif> seems to be column 233 of Lind, where it has:

<E. Þorgeirs d. ór Holti> from Biskupsa sogur ca. 1200's and

Olisif hvsfrv (1375).

Which would give us a possible 13-14th c. Icelandic <Ellisif Hergeirsdottir> or <Olisif Hergeirsdottir>.

8: Friderich von Aigel - New Name & New Device

Per bend argent and azure, a cross formy sable and three triquetrae argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.

11: Josefina de Luna - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Outlands LoI of November 22, 2013 as submitted.

Sable, a catamount passant contourney and on a chief argent, six mullets four and two azure

Submitter's previous device, Sable, a catamount passant to sinister argent and on a chief azure 6 mullets, 4 and 2, argent was returned on the February 2014 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2014-01-lop/1402-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a redraw because of color on color without documentation. Commentors suggest a per fess field division or switching around the colors on the chief.}

Submitter's previous device, Per fess azure and sable 6 mullets, 4 and 2, and a catamount passant argent was returned on the November 2013 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2013-10-lop/1311-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a redraw. The field division line is too high to be a proper per fess and is too low for a chief. Submitter is also advised to use a more heraldic representation of a catamount as commentors noted the one used is very stylized and modern like a logo.}

12: Kateryn Blair - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Culture (Gaelic) most important.

[Kateryn] - `Manx Names in the Early 16th Century' Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/jonesmanx16.html)

[Blair] - `Blair Society for Genealogical Research: The Barony of Blair', dated to 12th C, 1476, 1502 (http://www.blairsociety.org/history.html)

Additional Documentation provided by Blue Tyger & Rohese de Dinan:

<Blair> appears as a surname s.n. Blair in "Index of Scots names found in Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/scots/dost/blair.html) dated to 1520, 1595, 1610 and 1614.

Manx and Scots are part of the same Language Group under Appendix C of SENA.

Black cites de Blair and del Blair from 1205, sn. Blair. Kateryn Blair would be a nice Lowland Scots name.

The IGI has numerous Blairs listed in Scotland.

There was a Kateryn Rytche married in Scotland in 1564:

Name: James Lorimer Spouse's Name: Kateryn Rytche Event Date: 07 May 1564 Event Place: Monifieth,Angus,Scotland Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M11310-2 System Origin: Scotland-ODM GS Film number: 0993491-0993492

13: Olek Justsson - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture (Danish 1500's) most important.

The name was changed, at Kingdom, to <Olek Justsson> from <Olack Just>, per submitter's approval via the submitting herald, based on the commentary received and original lack of proper documentation.

Additional Documentation provided by Rohese de Dinan:

I could not find Olack, but did find Olek, as a Russian name, dated in Wickenden (2nd ed) to 1556., and Olukh, dated in Wickenden to mid-fifteenth century. -- http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/o.html

Iust is dated to 13-14th ce in Wickenden also, so something might be made of that. A possible Russian name might be Olek Iustov. But obviously it wouldn't be Danish.

Olek comes from Oleg, which is of Scandinavian origin, from Helgi, so again, the submitter might want to consider Oleg. Looking at the IGI, there are some Justsson and Justsdr (presume this is Justsdatter) in Denmark in the early 17th century, so Just is probably a given name in Danish. Russian and Scandinavian can be combined, per SENA, so perhaps Oleg Justsson?

But Just appears to be a given name in Danish, so it would become Justsson:

Name: Poffuel Justsson Spouse's Name: Anne Christensdr Event Date: 20 Jan 1646 Event Place: Holmens Sogn,Kobenhavn,Kobenhavn,Denmark Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M21849-1 System Origin: Denmark-ODM GS Film number: 44429

"Denmark, Marriages, 1635-1916," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FK7K-L8L : accessed 16 May 2014), Poffuel Justsson and Anne Christensdr, 20 Jan 1646; citing Holmens Sogn,Kobenhavn,Kobenhavn,Denmark, reference ; FHL microfilm 44429.

14: Slaine inghean Mhuireadhaigh - New Name

15: Sven Justsson - New Name & New Device

Argent, a bull statant contourny gules within an wreath of thorns sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for late 1500's Denmark.
Sound most important.

The name was changed, at Kingdom, to <Sven Justsson> from <Sven Just>, per submitter's approval via the submitting herald, based on the commentary received and original lack of proper documentation.

Additional Documentation provided by Rohese de Dinan:

I find Sven in Denmark in the IGI:

But Just appears to be a given name in Danish, so it would become Justsson:

16: Þorey Skarp - New Name

Client requests authenticity for 1500's Norwegian.
Sound most important.

The name was changed, at Kingdom, to <Þorey Skarp> from <Tori Skarp>, with submitter's approval via the submitting herald, based on the commentary received and a lack of original documentation.

Additional Documentation provided by Rohese de Dinan:

St. Gabriel Letter 2296 has the following: Skarp 1509 'sharp or clever' as a Swedish byname from the 16th century.

Geirr Bassi, page 16 has Þorey, but that was the closest I could find in the Scandinavian languages. No conflicts found.

17: Unser Hafen, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1991, via the Outlands

Order of the Guardians of the Portcullis of Unser Hafen

Meaning (Must represent archers) most important.

Constructed order name based on two sources:

1 - "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/)

2 - used the phrase "of the Portcullis" as per tradition with other Unser Hafen awards that bear Arms.

The previous submission "Guardians of the Portcullis of Unser Hafen" was returned on the December 2013 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2013-11-lop/1312-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a lack of designator in the order name. The document that accompanied the form did have a designator listed - 'Order of the Guardians of the Portcullis of Unser Hafen' - but since the form specified no major changes, this has to be returned for new forms to specify the designator.}

This submission was changed, by Kingdom, from <Guardians of the Portcullis of Unser Hafen> to <Order of the Guardians of the Portcullis of Unser Hafen> as it keeps with the pattern of previously registered order names for Unser Hafen, Barony of: Keepers of the Portcullis, Order of the (Feb. 1991, Outlands); Builders of the Portcullis, Order of the (Feb. 1991, Outlands). The submitter also allows changes this time around.

23: Wilhelm Reissen - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2010, via the Outlands

Vert, three paw prints and on a chief Or, in pale two arrows vert

Submitter's previous device, Vert, a gore and three bear pawprints Or, was returned on the March 2014 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2014-02-lop/1403-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for conflict with Watt Kidman, Vert, three goat's hoofprints inverted Or, as there is no different between inverted prints and non-inverted ones}

Submitter's previous device, Vert a gore Or, arrow point and three bear paws counterchanged, was returned on the January 2014 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2013-12-lop/1401-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a redraw as the College of Heralds has not registered charged gores since March 1992 (11/1991 CL).}

Submitter's previous device, Vert, three pawprints within a bordure Or, was returned on the March 2013 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/03/13-03lar.html#176) with the following: {This device is returned for conflict with the device of Watt Kidman, Vert, three goat's hoofprints inverted Or. Neither pawprints nor hoofprints are period heraldic charges. While they do not look similar, both are impressions made by feet of animals; we feel this is similar to the distinction between different types of abstract symbols. In other words, there is a blazonable distinction, but no difference as far as conflict is concerned. There is therefore a DC for the addition of the bordure, but nothing else. There is a step from period practice for the use of pawprints.}

Submitter's previous device, Vert, 3 bear pawprints Or, was returned on the September 2012 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2012-08-lop/1209-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for conflict with Mac Con mac Rodáin, reg.11/97 (via Atlantia): Per pall azure, sable and argent, three paw prints two and one Or. There is only one countable difference for the field.}

24: Ysabeau de La Rochelle - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Outlands LoI of July 31, 2013 as submitted.

Quarterly gules and lozengy purpure and Or, an urchin argent and a bordure Or

Submitter's previous device, Quarterly purpure, lozengy gules and Or, lozengy Or and purpure, and gules, an urchin argent within a bordure Or, was returned on the October 2013 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/10/13-10lar.html#177) with the following: {This device is returned for non-period style, for having four different backgrounds in a quarterly field. SENA A3B3c says "Elements divided quarterly or per saltire may use any two tinctures..." and goes on to explain that a section may be further divided, but the implication still is that there will be two pairs of matching sections. Without further documentation of this style of field division in period armory, this is not registerable.}


Thus ends the May 2014 Letter of Intent.

In Service,
