4: Giacomo Malcuore - New Name & New Device

Bendy vert and argent, on a heart sable a cockatrice erect to sinister Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (16th C Italian surname implying heartlessness/black-hearted) most important.

[GIACOMO] - Given name. Found in "Names from Sixteenth Century Venice" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith). Retrieved from: http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/16thcvenice.html

[MALCUORE] - Descriptive byname following the Italian pattern of mal/a- (meaning ill, bad, or evil) + descriptor. In this case, MAL + CUORE ("heart"). Cuore appears in Florio's Italian/English Dictionary, Queen Anna's New World of Words, as does mál-/mále (retrieved from: http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/florio/).

Examples of this naming pattern include Malatesta ("testa" meaning head, per Florio; BSB Cod.icon. 273, folios 21r, 22r), as mentioned in the article by Juliana de Luna above, and other examples found in Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Codices inconographici 273 (Insignia Venetorum nobilium III) and 274 (Insignia Veneta, Mantuana, Bononiensia, Anconitana, Urbinatia, Perugiensia), direct links found at: http://www.coblaith.net/Names/ItSur/MAL.html. Other examples from Venice are Mala Vita ("bad/ill spirited", BSB Cod.icon. 273, folio 32r), Mala Testa (BSB Cod.icon. 274, folio 51r), and Malfato ("ill-fated", "unlucky" or possibly "ill-made", BSB Cod.icon. 273, folios 23r, 24r), and other examples exist throughout Italy.

Additional Name Notes from Maridonna Benvenuti:

The only period or near period dictionary/vocabulary that I have found the word malcuore is in the 1612 Vocabolario degli Accademici della Crusca, a dictionary of the Florentine dialect, s.v. cuore mentions a quote Grad. S. Girol. (Gradi S. Girolamo D), "...In due maniere è perduta l'orazione dell'huomo, s'egli la fa a malcuore, e s'egli non perdona a colui, che di lui ha peccato." The best I can translate is, In two ways is a man's prayer lost: if his heart is evil and if he does not forgive the person who has sinned [against him](?). Does someone else have a better translation? http://www.lessicografia.it/Controller?c1=350;-7;3;-21159276;212722725;&c2=129;-39;3;-31;69;1;130;32 ;5;40;66;1;129;-39;65;40;69;4;130;1025;5;40;75;13;130;27;3;315113480;-1336952945;&qi=&qr=null&num=2 0&o=105;-44382125;-308820822;&q1=malcuore&EdCrusca1=1

Mal can also mean pain, etc.

Gerhard Rohlfs' Dizionario dei Cognomi e Soprannomi in Calabria has two gray period Mal- bynames.

S.n. Malitia, 1616, p. 381, probably Latin. A surname in Sic., (s.n. Malizia) 'malizia' - Malice, roguishness. Malizzia malicious, wicked, undated.

S.n. Malonome, 1618 'di cattiva fama' One of bad fame. Bad name.

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

Per chevron azure and purpure, a chevron argent between an increscent, a decrescent and a winged fox sejant argent

The previous submission, Per chevron azure and purpure, a chevron argent between an incresent and a decresent Or, and a winged fox sejeant argent, was returned on the August 2014 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2014-07-lop/1408-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a conflict with Anna Zen, registered August of 2007 (via the West): Per chevron azure and purpure, a chevron argent between two bears sejant erect respectant Or and a peach tree couped argent fructed Or. There is only one difference for changing the type of the secondary (A.5.G.4). Unfortunately, since the device follows the same color configuration, there is no second difference.}

The previous submission, Purpure, a winged fox sejant and a base indented argent, was returned on the January 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/01/14-01lar.html#Outlands_returns17) with the following: {This device is returned for conflict with the device of Frytha MacPhee, Sable, a bat-winged wolf sejant guardant and a base enarched indented argent.

11: Tristan Grey of Manchester - Resub Name & Resub Device

Vert, a bear dormant to sinister argent

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

The previous submission, Tristan Grey, was returned on the October 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/10/14-10lar.html) with the following: {Unfortunately, this name conflicts with the registered Triston de Grey. The given name is identical in pronunciation in English, and PN3C2 of SENA excludes articles and prepositions like de from counting towards a substantial change. The argument was made in commentary that this name could be documented as a wholly Spanish name, so the Spanish Tristan which would be different in sound from the French or English Triston. Just as we can't blazon our way out of an armory conflict, we can't redocument a name out of one. As Tristan Grey can be documented as both a French-English and Spanish name, both pronunciations need to be considered. As the submitter does not allow the creation of a holding name, the armory must be returned as well.}

Simplified Documentation supplied via ffride wlffsdotter in Internal Commentary:

Names from a 1587 Tax Roll from Provins by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/provins1587.html)

We can also document the spelling <Manchester> from the play Fair Em, the Miller's Daughter of Manchester (see image 1, for a page from the 1631 edition.)
