Atenveldt LoP dated 2017-01-15


January 5 2017, A.S. LI


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

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

This is the January 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation, for the January 2017 LoI; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have your commentary made by 20 January. Thank you in advance!

1: Áilgheanán mac Síthigh -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2001, via Meridies.

Or, a Celtic hound passant regardant vert, in chief a sword, a Battersea shield and a boarspear Or.

We don't register beasts or monsters drawn in a particular style or motif; a dog or boar or raven is registered as simply that, but the client can give it flourishes associated with Celtic knotwork or something like that once it has been registered.

Of more concern is that the submission will be returned for the use of three dissimilar charges (sword, shield and spear) in the same charge group (here, tertiary charges on the chief), commonly known as "slot-machine heraldry". (The Battersea shield appears mostly having to do with the outline of the shield, similar to a cartouche, rather than embellishments found upon it. I include a photo of one such shield.)

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

2: Amber Bikkadóttir -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2012, via Meridies.

Per chevron inverted vert semy of cat's pawprints argent, and sable, a domestic cat couchant contourny paly Or and sable and a tree eradicated argent.

The chevron inverted needs to issue from the sides of the field, not the upper corners of the field. This will reduce the space for the tree, but this seems to be permitted by the College of Arms. Please be aware that the uncolored copy of the device should match the colored copies; not being the same is a reason for return.

3: François Barbe-d'Or -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister gules and argent, a Paschal lamb passant regardant proper and a cross formy gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (French) most important.
Culture most important.

François is a French male given name found in "Names from Artois, 1601," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, Barbe-d'Or is a locative byname found in "Inn Signs and House Names in 15th Century Paris," Juliana de Luna,

The Paschal lamb registered by Galen of Bristol in March 2013 was blazoned simply as "argent," although the cross on its banner is gules. Isabel de Annesley's Pashal lamb, registered June 2014, is blazoned as argent, although the cross on its banner is gules and the halo is Or. Alisoun MacCoul notes in commentary for Isabel's submission, "While the lamb is haloed Or and its banner is the standard argent and gules ensign of Saint George, of late we have been omitting such details from blazon. . ." I'm using the blazon as it was submitted.
