Outlands LoI dated 2014-11-30

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

I would like to thank Green Anchor, Blue Tyger, Goutte d'Eau, Orle, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute comments on OSCAR.

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

This item was on the 02-2015 LoAR

1: Abigail MacNaught - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2014, via the Outlands

Gyronny sable and argent, a phoenix contourny gules rising from flames proper and on a chief Or three oak leaves gules

Originally submitted with (https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2014-10/abigail-c.jpg) but the submitter submitted new art work of alternating gules and Or (proper) flames after commentors were perplexed by the fimbriation and 'leaf' appearance of the flames on the original emblazon. The gyronny was also centered on the field as suggested by commentors.

4: Elizabeth Bakere - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

[Elizabeth] - "Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names" Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/eng16/eng16ffreq.html) shows Elizabeth as the most frequent name and "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames Part Two: The Names A-G" Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html) dates Elizabeth to 1518, 1524, 1530...1585 and 1600.

[Bakere] - {R&W} s.n. Baker with the desired spelling to 1246. Bakere is also found as the byname of multiple witnesses to a charter dated 30 May, 1 Edward IV, 'Close Rolls, Edward IV: 1461-1462', Calender of Close Rolls, Reward IV: volume 1: 1461-1468 (1949), pp. 98-114.

5: Estefania de las Yeguas - New Name & New Device

Azure, a horse sejant bewteen three octofoils argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning most important.

[Estefania] - Estefania De Prudo, married 5 May 1567 Spain, batch: M87115-4

(https://familysearch.org/pal:MM9.1.1/FFNY-72G)

[de las Yeguas] - Isabel Da Las Yeguas, married 8 Nov 1566 Spain GS film number 1279689, Digital Folder Number: 004245102, Image Number: 00008, (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VTJM-TZ5) (spelling of the attached microfilm does not capitalize "de las".)

Document link: https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2014-10-14/23-05-13_estefania1.jpg. The name in question is in the lower left hand corner. (The "Y" at the beginning is very faded, but matches that in "Ysabel", as well as the "s" at the end, which is consistent with other "S's" in the document.) Her father's name "Pedro de las Yeguas" is within the text to the right and is more clearly read. Text verified by Ly Alexandra Vazquez de Granada, Eyas Herald Calontir.

There was some debate on the Internal Kingdom Letter on whether or not a front leg could be lifted in <sejant>. The submitter was kind enough to provided an emblazon without the front leg lifted. She would prefer to have the sejant horse with the front leg lifted. The secondary emblazon is linked below.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:

Additional Documentation for <Ragnvaldr> provided by Rampart:

Nordiskt runnamnslexikon, pg. 180 (http://www.sprakochfolkminnen.se/download/18.6dffb94c149794d926e379/1415279748920/Runnamnslexikon_T+ 141106.pdf); Name also appears on the website, Viking Answer Lady (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#r), with the following: 'Found in Old Danish as Regnwald and possibly as Rawald, found in Old Swedish as Ragnvald, and in OW.Norse as Rǫgnvaldr. For the first element Ragn- see above. For the second element -valdr see above. Runic examples include the nominative case forms rahnualtr, [rakualtr] and the accusative case form raknualt (4 instances). A short form for names in Ragn- is Ragni.'

Submitter desires a male name even though his name form claims he is female, requesting a feminine name. His information was accidentally applied to a form that had been previously setup for a female client at an event.

The emblazons here will not match the forms, a rework of the emblazon was provided by Orle in internal commentary. The submitter agreed to the change from the original (https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2014-10/ragnvaldr-c.jpg) to the one provided by Orle.

[Soren]: Submitter's legal name, copy of Driver's License provided; Academy of St. Gabriel Report 1952 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/1952.txt) states this name is derived from the name of St. Severinus, found in Denmark from1400 on. It is found in the spelling [Søren] in 1403-1540, though [Sewryn] and [Sewren] were more common in the period. The name came to Norway ca. 1440 as [Søren], and was likely in use in Sweden by the 16th Century.

[Thorvaldsson]: Academy of St. Gabriel Report 3090 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/3090.txt) documents [Þorvaldr] as a 9th-10th-century Norwegian/Icelandic masculine name.
