2: Adhémar of Saint Albans - New Name & New Device

Argent, a cross cotised gules, in sinister chief a raven volant bendwise sable.

No major changes.
Spelling (spelling of 'Adhemar') most important.

Herald of Record: Thomas Haworth

'Adhemar' is found in Academy of Saint Gabriel Report #2575: We found many forms of the name 'Adhemar' between the ninth and twelfth centuries. The Latinized form 'Ademarus' was most common; we also found the forms 'Adhemarus', 'Adamar', 'Ademar', and 'Atmarus'.[1] We also found several forms of this name between the twelfth century and about 1300 in the Occitan language, which was spoken in southern France. [1,2,3,11] Based on these examples, we can recommend 'Ademar' as an appropriate name for a French man living sometime between the ninth and fourteenth centuries. The form 'Adhemar' is rarer, but we believe it is still appropriate for your period.

Submitted as St. Albans, it was changed to Saint Albans following internal commentary. Client has approved the change.

3: Annice Landi - New Name

Herald of Record: Conall an Doire

Annice is the submitter's modern middle name verified by Conall an Doire and Lillia Crampet with Pennsylvania drivers license. It's dated to period in English, but that is not compatible with the byname. She prefers this spelling to Anes, found in the 1292 Paris Census or the Italian Agnese/Agnesa (found in the same article as the byname. Check with her about the forms we've found.

Landi is a family name found in 1427 Florence, in Juliana de Luna's "Names in 15th Century Florence and her Dominions: the Condado" (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/condado/).

Landi, family name derived from patronym is found on p.98 in no photocopy "Names from 15th and 16th Century Pisa" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith).

Herald of Record: Ranolfr Rosamon

History of the holding name:

The original name, Arvik vounden, was returned in February 2014 (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/02/14-02lar.html#%C3%86thelmearc_returns2) because no documentation was provided for the byname vounden. It was noted in the return that "The given name is authentic to the late 15th century."

Arvik: In addition to the LOAR, we have Aruik Harittw 1489, FMU V 4232; in "Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names)" by Rouva Gertrud (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm).

Heitanen: The name Hietanen is found in "Finnish Family Names for Inhabitants Assessed for Taxes in Savonlinna Province in 1571" (http://www.genealogia.fi/nimet/nimi13ae.htm#Alku), once in Pellosniemi and once in Tavisalmi.

From internal commentary:

The December 2017 LoAR sn. Kaisa Huttinen says:

"Huttinen was documented on the Letter of Intent as a header form in "Finnish Family Names for Inhabitants Assessed for Taxes in Savonlinna Province in 1571" (http://www.genealogia.fi/nimet/nimi13ae.htm). While this article contains some period spellings, the headers are all modernized forms." (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/12/17-12lar.html#17)

Also, note the surname at genealogia.fi is Hietanen.

Client is fine with changing the spelling of the surname provided it is correct for the language and culture cited above.

This item was on the 01-2019 LoAR

8: Dalibor Vilcekov syn - New Name

Sound (sound of father's name) most important.
Spelling (spelling of given name) most important.

Herald of Record: Ursula Georges

This is a Russian name consisting of given name + patronymic.

Dalibor (1177) and Vilcek (var. Velchek, 1225) are masculine Russian given names found in Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/).

Vilcek becomes Vilcekov syn according to a pattern found in Goldschmidt: "It was also common to add the word syn (son) to the patronymic or to the "unaltered" form of the father's given name. Usually the word syn was placed after the patronymic (e.g., Gridia Timofeev syn Batutin [1538] [Tup]) but it could also procede the patronymic." This is therefore <given><patronymic + syn>.

9: Danielle de Lorraine - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2017, via the East.

Azure, a serpent involved and on a chief argent a bow reversed between two musical notes azure.

Herald of Record: Arwyn of Leicester

Client's previous submission (East kingdom) was returned at Laurel on the 10/2017 LoAR:

Danielle de Lorraine. Device. Azure, a serpent involved and on a chief argent a bow palewise reversed between two musical notes azure. This device is returned for violation of SENA A2C1, which requires that charges be depicted in their period formats. The musical notes in this submission have flags that extend horizontally, like a pennon. Period musical notation, if they used flags at all, drooped them vertically, and even folded them back onto the stem, to save space on the page. This depiction of musical notes doesn't show up until well past even the grey period.
The redraw has cleared the issue.

Argent, on a saltire vert two spears in saltire argent.

No major changes.
Sound (sound of GOD-free) most important.

Herald of Record: Thomas Haworth

This name combines an English given name with a French byname. This combination is permissible by SENA Appendix C.

'Godfrey' is found in Withycombe, s.n. Godfrey. The citation for this spelling is "Godfrey HR 1273". Also found in Family Search Names: Godfrey Tupman "England Births and Christenings" (Godfrey Tupman; Christening Date 07 Aug 1597; Place CHESTERFIELD,DERBY,ENGLAND; "England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5GQ-JMX)). The batch is C03586-1.

'de' French article meaning 'of'; used in locatives per SENA Appendix A.

'Bayeux' is a French place name. "Dictionnaire Topographique de la France" s.n. Bayeux (cths.fr/dico-topo/affiche-vedettes.php?cdep=14&cpage=17) lists multiple forms of this name in our period, including Baieux in 1371 and 1385, and Bayeulx in 1450. The spelling Bayeux is a reasonable interpolation. The spelling Bayeux is found in "Lettres de l'illustrissime et reuerendissime cardinal d'Ossat, euesque de Bayeux...." by Ioseph Bouillerot, 1627 (https: //books.google.com/books?id=Z6mLLRCFPoAC&pg=PA760&dq=de+Bayeux&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjg_J7z4NfcAhWJh1QKHWSvAH8Q6AEIPDAC#v=onepage&q=de%20Bayeux&f=false).

From internal commentary:

The documentation here gets the Lingua Anglica rule, as the period spellings of the name are different from the modernly known. There is a just-post period map that shows Bayeux in that spelling - http://biblio.unibe.ch/web-apps/maps/zoomify.php?pic=Ryh_2503_5.jpg&col=ryh

No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for None stated.

Herald of Record: Sara van Eerde

Magnus is a masculine given name found in "Middle Norwegian Names from Diplomatarium Norvegicum Diplom 217 (July 25, 1335)" by Þóra Sumarliðadóttir (Rachel K. Steffensen), under given names (http://www.morethancod.net/diplomatarium-norvegicum-217-july-25-1335/).

The byname j Vaghom is a locative byname found in the same article; the modern equivalent is Vågan. We believe the alternation between j and i in the preposition seems not uncommon in texts from the "Diplomatarium Norvegicum" in this period. We'd appreciate any assistance in finding documentation to support this.
