Atenveldt LoP dated 2018-02-28

ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS

28 February 2018, A.S. LII

LETTER OF PRESENTATION Kingdom of Atenveldt

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 March 2018 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation. It contains only submissions from Estrella XXXIV; the College of Arms asks that a Letter of Presentation/Intent have no more than 55 items; the remaining submissions will appear in the April 2018 Letter of Presentation. (This should make clear to potential clients that submitting heraldic at a large event (like a War) will not necessarily make things go any faster!) Please have commentary to me by 20 March 2018.

1: Adam the Fox -New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and vert, a fret and on a chief argent an annulet sable between two oak trees vert.

Adam: English male name dated to 1086 in DB (Withycombe, Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names, 3rd edition, p. 3). It is also the client's legal given name.

Fox: le Fox dated to 1297 as a nickname (Reaney and Wilson, Dictionary of English Surnames, 3rd edition, p. 176 s.n. Fox).


2: Aislinn Nihtingale -New Name

Aislinn: client's legal middle name; a copy of the AZ driver's is included for Laurel.

Nihtingale: English surname, with this variant spelling dated to 1227 (Reaney and Wilson, p. 322 s.n. Nightingale).


3: Alexandra Prestre -New Name & New Device

Argent, a pink flamingo close proper, a chief enhanced azure estencelly Or and a ford.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Alexandra: found for ALEXANDRA BARREY Female Christening 3 August 1561 Great Hormead, Hertford, England WM Batch: P012061 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AAlexandra~%2 0%2Bsurname%3ABarrey~). It is also the client's legal given name.

Prestre: French byname dated to 1515 in "Names from Lallaing 1384 â€" 1600: Bynames," Domhnall na Moicheirghe (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/lallaing/lallaing_names_bynames.html#p).

The client's legal name is Alexandra Priest. Would this be "too close" to her submitted name?


4: Alsacia Rabynovicha -New Name & New Device

Sable, on a bend between two bears rampant argent, a bat sable.

Alsacia: client's legal middle name; a copy of the AZ driver's is included for Laurel.

Rabynovicha: byname from her mother's registered name, Natal'ia Diekova vdova Rabynovicha (the widow of a fellow name Diek Rabynovich).


5: Alþrúðr Karlsdottir -New Name & New Device

Azure, a horse courant contourny argent and a bordure rayonny Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

The name is Old Norse.

Alþrúðr: female given name (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml).

Karlsdottir: patronymic formed from male given name Karl ("Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html), and the suffix -dóttir ("A Simple Guide to Creating Old Norse Names," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html). The genitive of Karl seems unchanged; the submitted name probably should include the accents found in -dóttir.


6: Andromeda Lykaina -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Sable, two wolves courant respectant argent and in chief a ducal coronet Or.

Old Item: Azure, on a fess argent between a crescent and two scimitars in saltire Or a lotus flower in profile azure., to be retained as a badge.

The client is entitled to bear a ducal coronet on her armory, 7 April 2011 (http://www.atenveldt.org/Heraldry/OrderofPrecedence/memid/3805#results).


7: Apolonia Cristyne von Culmbach -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Meaning most important.

Apolonia: German female given name, spelled as Apollonia in "15th-Century German Women's Names," Brian Scott (https://www.s-gabriel.org/docs/german15f.html).

Cristyne: German female given name (ibid.).

Culmbach: Kulmbach is a city in Bavaria. Plassenburg Castle was a symbol of the city and was first mentioned in 1135; it was built to the west of an earlier fortified farmstead. The castle was a central supporting stronghold for the Meranian rulers of the Upper Main and Franconian Forest. It was destroyed in 1554. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plassenburg)

Double given names are permitted in German, according to SENA Appendix A.


8: Ardgal Ardgalson -New Name & New Device

Or, a gurges azure, overall a mullet of four greater and four less points vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Ardgal: Old Irish Gaelic and Middle Irish Gael male name, dated c700-c1200 ("Index of Names in Irish Annals: Artgal, Ardgal, Ardgar / Ardghal, Ardghar," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Artgal.shtml).

Ardgalson: this construction "Norses/Vikings" the Irish Gaelic name Ardgal into a male patronymic. The client would really like Ardgalson, if such a thing is possible, but he may accept mac Ardgaile if absolutely necessary.


9: Arianwen Sweet -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2013, via Atenveldt.

Azure, a heart Or between a pair of wings conjoined, in chief three mullets argent.

The previous submission, Per fess doubly-enarched azure and Or, three compass stars in fess argent and a pair of bat wings conjoined sable., was returned "for using a per fess doubly-enarched field division. Precedent states: This device is returned due to the use of a fess doubly-enarched. No evidence was presented, and none could be found by commenters, that the charge is compatible with period heraldry."

The device has been redesigned.


10: Bellina Morgan -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2007, via Atenveldt.

(Fieldless) A frying pan sable charged with a rose argent barbed and seeded proper.


11: Britton Brekeale -New Name

No major changes.

Britton: client's legal given name; a copy of his high school ID card is forwarded to Laurel.

Brekeale: Middle English byname, "to break + all, everything," associated with a clumsy or wild person. This is dated to 1380 in Middle English Nicknames, I. Compound Names, Jan Jonsjo, p. 63.


12: Celeste Vallentine -New Name & New Device

Purpure mullet argent, a natural leopard gardant rampant contourny argent spotted sable.

No major changes.

Celeste: Academy of St. Gabriel Report 508 (http://www.s-gabriel.org/508) notes there is a Saint Celeste, bishop of Metz in the 4th C., several popes Celestin (one in the late 13th century), and a virgin martyr St. Celestina. It is also the client's given name.

Vallentine: English surname used from 1251 onward; this spelling is included but undated (Reaney and Wilson, p. 464 s.n. Valentin, Valentine et al.). There is a John Vallentine with a christening date of 8 April 1582 in Saint John, Hackney, London, England, Batch C04215-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Avallentine~%20%2Bbirt h_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1300-1600~).

Yes, this looks like purpure on paper.


13: Elis MacLeod -New Name

No major changes.
Language (Gaelic) most important.
Culture (Gaelic) most important.
Meaning most important.

Elis: English given name dated to 1220 for Elis de Adham (Reaney and Wilson, p. 154 s.n. Ellis, Elliss et al.).

MacLeod: Black dates this spelling to 1227 for a Gillandres MacLeod, p. 538 s.n. MACLEOD.


14: Elizabeth Busshenell -New Name

Elizabeth: a very popular English female given name dated specifically to 1561 and 1568 ("Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: elizabeth," Talan Gwynek, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Elizabeth).

Busshenell: registered name of her grandmother, Ann Busshenell of Tylehurst. Joan Busshenell has a christening date of 7 May 1565 in Thatcham, Berkshire, England Batch K15779-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3ABusshenell~%20%2Bbirt h_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1600~).


15: Fiona Brigid MacPherson -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Fiona: I believe the prohibition on Fiona as a post-period name still exists; Fiona Campbell was registered in December 2016 via Meridies, but this might be an example of using the legal name allowance.

Brigid: Brigid Reed was married 16 November 1560 in Harrow On The Hill, London, England (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKDL-F2Y ).

MacPherson: is found in Black's Surnames of Scotland, for Donald Macpherson in 1420 s.n. MacPherson.

If the submitted name cannot be registered (and this may be a problem if it's considered Gaelic, not English, as double given names are not found), she would consider Brigid MacPherson or Sandra MacPherson (Sandra is her legal given name).


16: Gallant O'Driscole -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2003, via Atenveldt.

Per chevron vert and ermine, in chief a bee proper.

This is for the client's one-year-old daughter; we decided to register the badge to him, and if she eventually would like it as a badge or device of her own, it can be easily transferred.

There should be a DC from a bee argent and from a bee Or. Considering the line of division, perhaps this should be reblazoned as Vert, a bee proper and a point point ermine.


17: Hannah of Sankt Vladimir -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Hannah: Hannah Collier has a christening date of 27 June 1532 in Wield, Hampshire, England, Batch C14668-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AHannah~%20%2Bbirth_ place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1400-1600~). It is also the client's legal given name.

Sankt Vladimir: the College, at Northern Arizona University, was registered October 2001.


18: Ida Grim -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2007, via Atenveldt.

Or, a snail courant contourny, on a chief azure three bees Or.


19: João Drago Da Costa -New Name

João: masculine Portuguese given name.

Drago: Portuguese surname.

Da Costa: Portuguese locative surname (cited as da Costa).

The pattern of <given + patronymic + locative> is seen in SENA Appendix A.


20: Kolli Makanarson -New Name & New Device

Vert, a thistle argent entwined by and sustaining a serpent Or.

No major changes.

Kolli: ON male given name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 12).

Makanarson: Makan is an ON male given name (ibid. p. 14). The patronymic is formed with the particle -ar to create the genitive, followed by the -son suffix (ibid. p. 17).


21: Kristófórus Jafnkollr -New Name & New Device

Per fess azure and sable, in pale a demi-sun Or eclipsed sable issuant from chief and a sea-serpent Or, a bordure parted bordurewise wavy azure and argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for Norse, Old Icelandic, Scandanavian.
Sound ("Kris") most important.

Kristófórus: ON male given name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 13).

Jafnkollr: ON byname, "even-mind, level-head" (ibid, p. 23).


22: Leo Hyrulea -New Name & New Device

Per bend argent and gules, a lion queue-forchy and three triquetras all counterchanged.

Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Leo: client's legal given name.

Hyrulea: client's legal middle name. A copy of the AZ driver's license is included for Laurel.

Although the client is using two elements of his legal name, it is not his complete legal name: he has a separate surname.


23: Leofric Hield -New Name & New Device

Argent, a cow statant sable with the head of a jester gardant proper, hooded gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Leofric: Old English male given name dated to DB 1086 (Withycombe, p. 193).

Hield: variant of the surname Heald (Reaney, p. 224 s.n. Heald, Held et al.). IGI cites Mary Hield with a christening date of 8 May 1625 in All Hallows the Less, London, London, England, Batch C02128-2 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AHield~%20%2Bbi rth_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~).

Lorelei: client's legal given name. A copy of her AZ driver's license is included for Laurel.

Beguine: a member of a Christian sisterhood that was founded in Liège in the 12th century, and in several areas, often in the Netherlands. Although a woman did not take religious vows, she followed an austere, celibate life.


25: Malik of the High Desert -New Name & New Device

Per pale indented argent and sable, two bats counterchanged.

Malik: an Arabic male 'ism/given name ("Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices," Da'ud ibn Auda, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm).

High Desert: lingua Franca locative. (The client's local SCA group is situated in the Mojave Desert, which is described as a High Desert in ecological terms.)


26: Margaret Busshenell -New Name

Margaret: a very popular English female given name dated specifically to 1564 ("Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: Margaret," Talan Gwynek, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Margaret).

Busshenell: registered name of her grandmother, Ann Busshenell of Tylehurst. Joan Busshenell has a christening date of 7 May 1565 in Thatcham, Berkshire, England Batch K15779-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3ABusshenell~%20%2Bbirt h_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1600~).

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2002, via Atenveldt.

Argent, in pall three human figures, heads to center and arms and legs outstretched purpure.


28: Michael MacGregor -New Name

No major changes.

Michael: client's legal given name.

MacGregor: a Scottish family name. It is listed in Black's Surnames of Scotland dated to 1603, p. 505.


29: Natasia Novikova -New Name

No major changes.

Natasia: female Russian given name; it is listed in "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section N" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/n.html) as Nastas'ia, and according to the July 2017 LoAR Acceptances for Natas'ia Sveneva, the apostrophe may be necessary.

Novikova: Novik is a Russian male given name (ibid.). Adding a terminal -a feminizes the byname Novikov ("Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names - Grammar," http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html, under Feminine Patronymics).


30: Olafr Karlsson -New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and Or, in pale a dragon statant and a wolf's head cabossed argent, both orbed azure.

No major changes.

Olafr: Old Norse masculine given name, demonstrated as Óláfr (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 13).

Karlsson: ON masculine given name (ibid., p. 12). Whether the patronymic should be Karlsson or Karlson, I am unsure (ibid., p. 17); those appearing in recent years via OSCAR all show Karlsson.


31: Óláfr Sveinsson -New Name & New Device

Azure, a stag's attires and on a chief nebuly argent three gouts azure.

Óláfr: Old Norse masculine given name (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 13).

Sveinsson: Svein is an ON masculine given name (ibid., p. 15). I believe the patronymic form of the byname is Sveinsson (ibid., p. 17).


32: Raza-Una -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Raza-: Old Norse byname, "arse" (The Old Norse Name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, p. 26).

Una: ON feminine given name (ibid., p. 15).

In the acceptance of Raza-Skúli (who happens to be her lord) in the June 2015 LoAR, it was noted that "Those present at the Pelican decision meeting did not think that Raza- is offensive, noting that "arse" does not have the same connotation as the returned "anus" or "asshole". Therefore, we are able to register this name." Yes, the client is aware of the meaning.


33: Ríán hua Tadgáin -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Quarterly sable and argent, a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy sable.

The previous submission, Per chevron sable and vert, a chevron rompu between a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy and an edelweiss argent seeded Or., was withdrawn by the submitter.


34: Ro Asper -New Name & New Device

Per chevron Or and vert, two sprigs of aspen leaves vert and a ram's head cabossed argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.
Meaning (from the aspen trees) most important.

Ro: German female given name found in "German Names from 1495," Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/german1495.html).

Asper: German surname dated to 1488 in Dictionary of German Names, Hans Behlow, p. 21 s.n. Asp(er).


35: Roland Rothais -Resub Name

The client's previous submission, Roland of Blaye, was returned by Laurel July 2017 "because it presumes on the significant historical figure Count Roland, nephew of Charlemagne and eponymous hero of the 12th century Chanson de Roland, one of the most famous pieces of medieval literature. Roland was called seigneur de Blaye (overlord of Blaye) in period sources. For example, Annales & croniques de France: depuis la destruction de Troye iusques au temps du roy Louis onzieme, published in 1553 (https://books.google.com/books?id=iy9hAAAAcAAJ), refers to Roland several times as "Comte du Mans" (Count of Mans) and "Seigneur de Blaye." Blaye continues to be the modern name of the place. Thus, Roland of Blaye is a form of the famous Roland's name and the present submission must be returned as presumptuous."

Rothais: is an English byname dated to 1086 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 383 s.n. Rose.


36: Rowan of the Titans -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Atenveldt.

Per chevron Or and sable, two pawprints and a fleur-de-lys counterchanged.

Old Item: Azure, an elephant rampant contourny proper maintaining in its trunk a cluster of Rowan flowers argent, slipped and leaved vert., to be retained as a badge.

The use of pawprints is a SFPP.


37: Sadb ingen Máedóc -New Name & New Device

Per pale indented gules and azure, a tree blasted and eradicated Or and an increscent argent.

No major changes.

Sadb: Middle Irish Gaelic feminine name dated to 1048, 1126. 1171, 1176 ("Index of Names in Irish Annals," Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada,(http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Sadb.shtml).

Máedóc: male Oghamic Irish name, dated 624, 625, 660 (ibid., http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Maedoc.shtml)

ingen: The pattern <given> ingen <father's genitive> is documented in Sharon L. Krossa's "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/). The use of ingen prior to 1200 comes toward the bottom of the page, while the generic pattern is s.n. Simple Patronymic Bynames.


38: Sigríðr Úlfsdóttir de Lacy -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in June of 2018, via Atenveldt.

39: Victoria Busshenell -New Name

Victoria: English female given name dated between 1617 and 1702 (Withycombe, p. 289). However, there are several individuals in IGI that precede these dates: Victoria Marshall has a christening date of 8 June 1589 in Darrington, York, England, Batch P00759-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AVictoria~%20 %2Bbirth_place%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1500-1650~).
