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

I would like to thank Green Anchor, Orle, 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 09-2014 LoAR

4: Christoff Trost - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning most important.

[Christoff] - 'Medieval German Given Names from Silesia' Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/bahlow_v.htm)

'Medieval German Given Names from Silesia Men's Names' Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/bahlow/bahlowMasc.html)

[Trôst] - 'Some Early Middle High German Bynames with Emphasis on Names from the Bavarian Dialect Area' Brian M. Scott (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Early_German_Bynames.html)

'Some Early Middle High German Bynames with Emphasis on Names from the Bavarian Dialect Area' Brian M. Scott (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/Early_German_Bynames.html)

Additional Documentation provided by Orle & Goutte d'Eau:

Talan Gwynek's article, "Medieval German Given Names from Silesia", lists <Christoff> in 1435, 1488, and 1596. "Some Early Middle High German Bynames with Emphasis on Names from the Bavarian Dialect Area" by the same author has <TRÔST> as the headword, then cites <Chu[o]nrat Trost> 12th c. I'm dubious about the o-circumflex as an actual period documentary form.

January 2014 LoAR sn. Elzebeth Nadel (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/01/14-01lar.html#100)

"Submitted as Elzebeth Nâdel, the spelling of the surname is a normalized Middle High German form. The editorial marking showing vowel length (the circumflex) is not period and has been removed in order to register this name."

Wikipedia has a section on it's page about Middle High German, discussing how it is standardised "according to a set of conventions established by Karl Lachmann in the 19th century. There are several important features in this standardised orthography which are not characteristics of the original manuscripts."

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_High_German#Writing_system)

Per the notation on the January 2014 LoAR and additional internal commentary, Kingdom opted to drop the accent changing <Trôst> to <Trost>.
