Atenveldt LoP dated 2018-01-12



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 January 2018 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation. Please have commentary to me by 20 January 2018. This should've been posted and dated on 1 January 2018, but apparently, Things Happen and it wasn't.

1: Jorunn Vakr -New Name

The name is Norwegian. While the given name is documented in (not a good source), Jórunnr can be found in Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, "The Old Norse Name," p. 12, as a female Old Norse name. However, Diplomatarium Norvegicum ( vol. II no. 285 (dated to 1347) mentions "Arne Þrondar son ok Jorunn moder hans" (Arne Þrond's son and Jorunn his mother) as a Norwegian name (this was provided by Aryanhwy merch Catmael).

Vakr is found in Vakr is a male given name in Geirr Bassi, p. 15, as an Old Norse name. This name appears in Hrana saga hrings and is also used as one of the by-names of the god Óðinn in Gylfaginning, where it means "the watchful; the vigilant." ( It is used here as a descriptive rather than a patronymic.

The client's maiden name is Wake, which was changed by the British from the original Vakr, meaning "watchful, wakeful"; she notes that Vakr date back to her Norse family ancestry in 1052.

2: Loðinn Feilan -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister argent and azure, two wolf's head erased addorsed counterchanged gules and argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

The name is Old Norse.

Loðinn is a male given name found in Geirr Bassi, p. 12, and in the Viking Answer Lady (

Feilan is found in Geirr Bassi, p. 20, "wolf-cub."

The wolf heads will have to be modified to show that the cut line is actually erased, and "ragged"-looking.

3: Loðinn Feilan -New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Per pale argent and azure, a wolf's head cabossed per pale gules and argent.

4: Olrun Kjarsdottir -New Name & New Device

Per chevron vert and gules, a chevron between two swans rousant repectant argent and a rapier Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (Olrun daughter of Kjar) most important.

The name is Old Norse. Olrún is a female given name from the Viking Answer Lady,, via Cleasby, Richard and Guðbrandr Vigfusson. An Icelandic-English Dictionary. 2nd ed. Oxford: Clarendon. 1957, pp. 504, 763.

Several Kjar- male names are found with the Viking Answer Lady,, via Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, The Old Norse Name. I don't know if this protheme stands as an independent name, but if it does, the terminal -r should be dropped and the patronymic for a woman would seem to be Kjasdottir.

Is the placement of the chevron may have to be acceptable? I suspect the orientation of the swans might also be simply combatant.
