Atenveldt LoP dated 2016-04-25


Kingdom of Atenveldt


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 May 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 15 May 2016.

1: Aibhilín inghean Baireíd -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The given name is an Early Modern Irish Gaelic feminine name dated 1498 through 1583 (" Index of Names in Irish Annals: Aibhilín, Eibhilín," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan,

Baireíd is a Gaelic surname found in "16th & 17th Century Anglicized Irish Surnames from Woulfe," Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada,, p. 226; the Anglicized form is Baret. I don't know if inghean is required in the name, but here it is, just in case.

2: Aillenn inghean Chonaill -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2015, via Atenveldt.

Vert, two wolves rampant Or and in base a moon in her plenitude argent.

3: Ambrose the Gutless -New Name & New Device

Sable, a dexter hand apaumy argent and in chief two bees Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning most important.

Ambrose is an English given name dated c. 1440 (Withycombe 3rd edition, p. 18 s.n. Ambrose).

The byname is a descriptive one, based on those found in "Middle English Nicknames I. Compounds," Jan Jonsjo, Lund Studies in English 55. lēas, from OE for "without," is seen in a number of nicknames, including physical ones such as Tothelesse 1325 and Harless 1327. The OE gutt, "gut(s), bowel(s)," is found in Beltegut 1332. Although a gutless individual might be one who is considered cowardly, the client is one who is quite literally gutless; an autoimmune disease has required that several of her internal organs, including her large intestine, be surgically removed.

4: Elezabeth Dayseye -New Name

The name is English. The given name is a variant of Elizabeth and is dated to 1549 and 1552 ("Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: Elizabeth," Talan Gwynek,

Dayseye is a surname dated c. 1306 (Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 123 s.n. Daisey).

5: Garrett Seaburn -New Name & New Device

Per bend Or four piles inverted issuant from chief azure and barry wavy argent and azure, a bend vert.

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

Garrett is an English given name dated to 1575 as a christening name for Garrett Adams at St. Botoph without Aldgats, London, in FamilySearch ( ce%3AEngland%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1570-1580~) Batch C00633-1.

Seaburn is a surname dated to 1552 as a christening date for Williami Seaburne in Bluntisham, Huntingdon, England ( %3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1500-1600~%20%2Brecord_country%3AEngland, Batch C16854-1).

The lines on the barry wavy should be a equal width, but I don't think that's an overwhelming problem.

6: Sigríðr Úlfsdóttir of Aschehyrst -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via Atenveldt.

Sable, a key palewise wards to sinister and on a chief argent two mullets of four greater and four lesser points sable and gules.

The original submission, Per bend azure and argent, two mullets of eight points in bend sinister argent and a vine bendwise issuant from base vert., was returned by Laurel August 2015 for multiple reasons, "It is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, which requires "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation". Here the arrangement of the mullets (in bend sinister) must be blazoned independently of the vine, which is itself bendwise. To be registerable such an arrangement would need to be documented. Additionally, blazoned on the LoI as an acanthus vine, no documentation was provided for this charge."

This is a complete redesign.
