Atenveldt LoP dated 2017-12-11


11 December 2017, A.S. LII


Unto Their Royal Majesties Marek and Golda; Baron Seamus MacDade, 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 December 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation. Please have commentary to me by 25 December 2017.

1: Mathurin Annarson -New Name & New Device

Gules, on a fess cotised argent two trident heads conjoined at the neck fesswise sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Old Norse, French) most important.
Culture (Viking Normandy 820-1020) most important.
Meaning most important.

Saint Mathurin was a French missionary (d. 300). He is first mentioned at Maturinus in the Martyrology of Usuard, written in 875. His relics were kept at Saint-Mathurin, Larchant, as well as in the church of Saint-Mathurin in Paris. Saint-Mathurin de Larchang, a property of the chapter of Notre-Dame de Paris since 1005, was rebuilt beginning in 1153, and it became a popular pilgrimage site. ( The name has been registered a few times with the SCA College of Arms.

I'm stymied with the byname. Annar is an Old Norse masculine name, a variant of Ánarr ( I couldn't find it either with the Viking Answer Lady website or in Geirr Bassi (I hope it's just uncommon, rather than only a supernatural/mythical name. In Norse mythology, Anarr is the name of a dwarf in the literary Vǫluspá). Given the spelling Anarr, the patronymic would change as -rr > -rs, hence Anarson. (He might need the spelling of the name adjusted, if this is the case.)

This clears the arms of Austria, Gules, a fess argent., with 1 DC for cotising the fess and 1 DC for the addition of the tertiary charge.
