Atenveldt LoP dated 2016-03-10


10 March 2016, A.S. L


Unto Their Royal Majesties Casca and Melissa; Baroness Genevieve de Lironcourt, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

This is the March 2016 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have commentary to me by 25 March 2016 .

1: Ceallach Colquhoun -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2006, via Atenveldt.

Per bend sinister gules and argent, a door argent banded and handled sable and charged with two arrows in saltire, and a dragon sejant affronty, wings displayed and head to dexter gules.

The original submission, Per bend sinister gules and argent, a door argent banded, handled and charged with two arrows in saltire sable, and a dragon sejant affronty, wings displayed and head to dexter gules., was returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." "As depicted, the arrows on the door appear to be part of the door and not independent charges. The arrows are similar in color and width to the details on the door, leading commenters to see them as part of the door. Changing the tincture of either the details or the arrows or making the arrows bolder with larger heads and fletchings would improve identifiability."

The arrows' tincture has changed, as suggested by the CoA and making them far more identifiable as independent charges.

2: Franceska Lucrezia la Sarta -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister indented purpure and gules, a threaded needle bendwise sinister and a leopard's face Or.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.

The name is Italian. Franceska is a female given name found in "Feminine Given Names from

Thirteenth Century Perugia," Arval Benicoeur,

Lucrezia is found in "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Venice," Juliana de Luna,

la Sarta is a occupational byname, "the (female) tailor, dressmaker, seamstress," SENA Appendix A notes that double given names are found, and occupational names, while used, rarely include the article.

3: Idunn of the Citadel -New Name & New Device

Argent, a pale sable and a wingless wyvern passant to sinister regardant, its tail nowed and entwined azure around a thighbone argent.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
No major changes.
Sound (Id-toon) most important.
Culture (Viking) most important.

Idunn is an Old Norse name, the goddess of apples. It also appears as a female given name in Geirr Bassi, p. 12. The name apparently is actually IÄ‘unn (with the eth), although early SCA registrations of the name were shown to be Idunn Felinnoir in 1987 and Idunn in Spanverska in 1996, and we hope that that spelling can be maintained for the client.

The byname comes from the Citadel of the Southern Pass (El Paso, TX), the client's first barony.

The bone could be blazoned simply as a "bone," but it has been nicely rendered as a femur (thighbone).

Many thanks to three gallant individuals from the Kingdom of Avacal (!) (!!), who spent some of their Estrella vacation at Heralds' Point consulting with clients.
