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 March 2016 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor & The NE Calontir Commenting Group, Liber, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute comments on OSCAR.

This item was on the 06-2016 LoAR

4: Lőrinc Ötög - New Name Change From Holding Name

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in June of 2016, via the Outlands.

Old Item: Lőrinc of Nahrun Kabirun, to be released.
No major changes.

The previous submission, Lörinc Ötög-äke was returned on the November 2015 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/11/15-11lar.html#Outlands_returns26) with the following: "Appendix A of SENA does not include the pattern of a Mongolian double surname combined with a given name, nor for a double surname with Hungarian. Without evidence to support the construction of this name, we are not able to register it. We note that the wholly Mongolian Ötög äke would be registerable on its own. Lörinc Ötög is also registerable, as Appendix C of SENA allows the combination of Hungarian and Mongolian elements. We are returning the name to allow the submitter to consider his options. The submitter may wish to know that Kolosvari Arpadne Julia noted that, "Lörinc is a constructed spelling of the Hungarian form of Laurence, based on 1240: Leurenc (Fehértói s.n. Leurench), 1560: Lőrinch (Walraven 16c), 1569: Lörincz (Kázmér s.n. Lőrinc), and 1574: Leōrinc (ibid). His device is registered under the holding name Lörinc of Nahrun Kabirun."

[Lőrinc] - documentation provided by Kolosvari Arpadne Julia in previous commentary: Walraven van Nijmegen's "Hungarian Personal Names of the 16th Century" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/hungarian/index.html) dates Lo"rincs (which is his pre-Unicode workaround for Lőrincs) to 1560, and Kázmér s.n. Lőrinc has 1569 Lörincz Péterand 1596 Lörinch Andras.

[Ötög] -http://www.s-gabriel.org/3375 specifically mentions "ötege" and "ötöge" as words for "bear", and goes on to mention that they could plausibly be used as elements in a period Mongol male name: We were able to find a mid-14th century word <o"tege> 'bear' in the Ilkhanate. <O"tege> and a variant spelling <o"to"ge> 'bear, old man' were also recorded in Chinese and Uighur scripts in other parts of the Mongol Empire

"ON SOME MONGOLIAN NAMES OF WILD BEASTS", NICHOLAS POPPE, Central Asiatic Journal, Vol. 9, No. 3 (September 1964), pp. 161-174 This article states that "ötege" was used in Middle Mongolian as "bear". Image of page 170: http://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-20/02-10-38_lorinc-1602-name-1.jpg

"From animal to name, remarks on the semantics of Middle Mongolian personal names", Volker Rybatzki, University of Helsinki This academic paper mentions "Ötöge 'bear'" in a group of Middle Mongolian totemic names. Image of page 336: (http://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-20/02-10-41_lorinc-1602-name-2.jpg)

Per Laurel on http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/11/15-11lar.html#290: "Lörinc Ötög is also registerable"

(The submitter is fine with the minor changes "Ötög" to "Ötöge" if it comes to that.)

5: Máría Abramsdottir - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2006, via the Outlands.

Purpure, an angel facing to sinister argent

The previous submission, Purpure, an angel volant to sinister argent, was returned on the December 2006 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2006/12/06-12lar.html) with the following: "Barring evidence of angels volant as period heraldic charges, they are not registerable. By precedent, from the tenure of Baldwin of Erebor, the term volant is used only for insects and birds - the term is ambiguous for other winged creatures (q.v., BoE, 3 Aug 86, p.17). For heraldic purposes, this submission's posture cannot be blazoned: it doesn't fit the definition of volant for either birds (which would have the body horizontal, wings spread to chief and base) or insects (which would have the angel's back facing the viewer). Nor could the human part alone be blazoned if the wings were ignored: it's neither rampant, salient, nor statant."

Submitter has attempted to redraw angel and no longer lists "Volant" in Blazon. Acknowledges that angel is a step from period practice.

6: Oleksy Schwinghammer - New Name & New Device

Paly argent and sable, a pall Or between a lymphad and two bulls heads cabossed gules

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (First syllables of given name need to sound like Oleg/Olek) most important.

[Oleksy] - Taszycki, Witold "Słownik Staropolskich nazw osobowych" volume 1, p. 28-29 (attached) has: <Oleksy> 1386 Hb 5 s. 59, 1390 Krak 5431, 1406 Leçz II 2680, 1426 Zakr I 2622, 1437 Zakr II 2749, etc.

(Note: the submitter would really prefer to register "Oleg" as his given name, but we weren't able to document it in a time and place compatible with his surname. If the College is willing and able find such documentation, then please register Oleg instead of Oleksy.)

[Schwinghammer] - "Deutschland Heiraten, 1558-1929," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NZLT-GNP : accessed 28 January 2016), Hanns <Schwinghammer> and Anna Stockhers, 05 Jan 1568; citing Stuttgart, Württemberg, Germany; FHL microfilm 1,055,689. batch M91614-9

Brechenmacher p 590 has an entry <Schwing(en)hammer>, dated citations are <Schwingdenhammer> 1410, <Jakob Schwingenhammer> 1476

Scans: (http://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-20/02-11-52_oleksky-1602-name-1.jpg; http://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-20/02-11-54_oleksky-1602-name-2.jpg)

The combination of a Polish given name and German surname is allowed per SENA appendix C.

Hanns Schwinghammer, M, 05 Jan 1568, Stuttgart, Wurttemberg, Germany. Batch #M91614-9. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NZLT-GNP


This item was on the 06-2016 LoAR

7: Rónán Supélach - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2012, via the Outlands.

(Fieldless) An A-frame plumb-line per pale sable and vert


This item was on the 06-2016 LoAR

8: Svein hammar - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2006, via the Outlands.

Quarterly arrondi gules and azure, a cross arrondi and in canton a forearm palewise maintaining a hammer Or

The previous submission, Gyronny arrondi of sixteen azure and argent, an arm fesswise embowed Or and on a chief azure three mallets fesswise argent, was returned on the June 2015 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/06/15-06lar.html#Outlands_returns25) with the following: "This device is returned for lack of documentation of the pattern used of a gyronny arrondi of sixteen with a central charge. Per SENA appendix G, a central charge on a gyronny arrondi field drawn with the corners of the field in the center of a gyron is a step from period practice. Per long standing precedent, a gyronny of sixteen with a central charge is also a step from period practice. Thus, the use of a gyronny arrondi of sixteen field with a central charge would need documented as an individually attested pattern. Additionally, the chief shares its base tincture with half of the field it's in contact with, which impairs identifiability."


This item was on the 06-2016 LoAR

9: Thurgar Oddsson - New Name & New Device

Per bend gules and sable, a snake nowed argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

[Thurgar] -Saxon name from: "Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 3190", found under [8] Examples from late pre-Conquest charters. http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?3190+0

[Oddrson] -

[Oddr] - Masculine Viking name Found in "Viking Names found in Landnámabók" http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html Dr. Fleck's work list name 24 times.

Patronymic name construction as outlined in the SCA heraldry article: "Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names)" http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm. "A matronymic indicates a mother's name and a patronymic the father's. A patronymic was the norm, a matronymic was used probably only if the father wasn't known (for exampleMaijsa Lucija dotter). Most of these names were derived from the father's (or mother's) first name,"

Examples from site include uninpoica (Suni's son), Laso Bengtin (Pentti's son), therefore Oddr (father) + son = Oddrson (Lingua Anglica)

Originally submitted as <Thurgar Oddrson> but was updated by Kingdom to <Thurgar Oddsson> per the appropriate creation of the patronymic.
