Ealdormere LoI dated 2018-09-24

Unto the Sovereigns and other members of the College of Arms of the Society, come greetings from TH Lord Dietrich von Sachsen, Green Mantle Herald.

It is the intent of the Ealdormere College of Heralds to submit the following for your consideration.

This item was on the 12-2018 LoAR

1: Aibell filia Baldricis - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Culture (12th-14th century Hiberno-Norse) most important.

Aibell: OCM, p. 15, s.n. Aíbell: Aoibheall, state: "One of the old Irish goddesses. According to some legends she is a supernatural lady who lives in the fairy-mound of Craig Liath near Killaloe, Co Clare, and who appeared to Brian Boru on the eve of the battle of Clontarf. In other stories there is mention of Aíbell Grúadsolus ('Aíbell of the bright cheeks') who is daughter of the king of Munster." This last would seem to imply an historical, rather than purely legendary use. O'C&M, pg. 15, (sn. Aibell) - Aíbell is the daughter of Celtchar man Uithechair and Aíbril Grúadsolus is the daughter of the king of Munster.

Baldricis: masculine given name introduced into England during the Norman Conquest. Latinized form, Baldricus, was recorded 1050, 1187-1219. Remained popular in 12th & 13th C, usually in French forms Baldri & Baudri. [E{lizabeth} G{idley} Withycombe, Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names, 3rd ed., Oxford University Press: Oxford, 1977, cf Baldric] Unmarked patronymic forms recorded as "Baldrik" in 1321 and "Baldrich" in 1238 & 1275 [P. H. Reaney and R. M. Wilson, Dictionary of English Surnames, 3rd ed., Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1997, cf Baldric]. The given name also appears, possibly with the submitted spelling, at least once in English legal documents from the Anglo-Norman period (about 1066 to the early 14th C or so) [Susan Carroll-Clark {aka Nicolaa de Bracton of Leicester}, "Gothic Names :: The Middle Ages, Short Treatise on Anglo-Norman Personal Names," 1994, http://www.themiddleages.net/people/names.html {& an earlier version at http://www.florilegium.org/files/NICOLAA/names-AN-art.html}, accessed 5 May 2007]. It seems reasonable to conclude that, given Latinized form Baldricus, the third declension that we may use as a patronymic is Baldricis.

Eydís: The first element Ey- (or before a vowel, Eyj-) is of uncertain origin but may derive from *auja, "fortune, gift." The Cleasby-Vigfusson dictionary states that while the second element -ey may be related to the word for island, from Primitive Scandinavian *awió, when it appears as the first element Ey- or Eyj- then the word comes from a different root. he second element -dís is identical with the Old Icelandic dís, "goddess, priestess, female guardian spirit."
