An Tir LoI dated 2018-10-31

Unto Dame Juliana de Luna, Laurel Queen of Arms; Mistress Alys Mackintosh, Pelican Queen of Arms; Master Cormac Mór, Wreath King of Arms; and all esteemed members of the College of Arms does Elizabeth Turner de Carlisle, Lions Blood Herald, send greetings and salutations;

It is the intent of the An Tir College of Heralds to register the following items. Some items have been processed by the Tir Righ College of Heralds and are marked as such:

This item was on the 01-2019 LoAR

1: Adiantum, Barony of - New Badge Association

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1976, via the West.

(Fieldless) Two bear's heads erased addorsed conjoined at the neck Or

This submission is to be associated with Populace

We, the undersigned Coronet, officers and populace of Adiantum, do agree that the following armory registered to the Barony of Adiantum should be associated with Populace:

(Fieldless) Two bear's heads erased addorsed conjoined at the neck Or

We understand that this association may be removed at any time with the consent of the members of the Barony of Adiantum.

This letter was signed at the Baronial Council meeting of the Barony of Adiantum on August 27, 2018, and it is signed by Baron Durin, Baroness Ceridwen, 9 Baronial officers, and 12 members of the populace.

2: Anneke von Frankenstein - Resub Device

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

Lozengy argent and purpure, on a chief purpure a reremouse argent.

The submitter's previous device was returned by Laurel in April 2018:

Anneke von Frankenstein. Device. Lozengy argent and purpure, on a chief triangular purpure a reremouse volant affronty argent.

This device is returned for redraw. The reremouse in this submission is volant affronty, an unregisterable posture with an inherently three-dimensional feel. Upon resubmission, the reremouse should be drawn in its default displayed posture, with the head entirely above the fully visible torso.

This device is also returned for lack of contrast between the field and the chief. The size of the lozenges and the relative angle of the chief caused a majority of the edge of the purpure charge to be in contact with the purpure lozenges. Upon resubmission, please ensure that more of the chief touches the argent lozenges. A change in tincture of either the field or the chief would also aid in identifiability.

Tir Righ Submission


This item was on the 01-2019 LoAR

4: Bowen Doyle - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2017, via An Tir.

Per pall inverted gules, sable and argent, two stags' antlers argent and an axe head sable.

The submitter's previous device was returned by Laurel in July 2017:

Bowen Doyle. Device. Per pall inverted gules, sable and argent, two stag's attires argent and a boar's tusk sable.

This device must be returned for lack of documentation of the boar's tusk. The only registration of a boar's tusk is the badge for the Barony of Coeur d'Ennui's Order of the Boar's Tusk, registered March 1992: (Fieldless) A boar's tusk argent surmounted by a boar's head couped close gules. SENA A2A states that "Elements which have been registered without comment in the last decade or are listed in one of the Appendices as acceptable elements do not usually need to be documented in a new submission. Items which have not been registered in over a decade, have only been registered a few times, or have recent registrations only via the Grandfather Clause may need to be documented." Absent such documentation, the badge must be returned.

In all, there are less than a dozen registrations of tusks as stand-alone charges, most assumed (or explicitly stated) to be elephant tusks, most dating to the early 1990s, and only one dated after 1995. The last registration of any tusk was the badge of the Shire of Ivory Keep in February 2009, Argent, two tusks in saltire azure and a bordure denticulada sable.

The boar's tusk as depicted differs in shape noticeably from the elephant's tusks registered by the Shire of Ivory Keep; it's thicker and blunter, with a deeper curve, which differentiate it as a boar's tusk.

The documentation provided in the Ivory Keep submission read: "According to the PicDic, tusks are registerable, though no difference is given vs. drinking horns." However, the 2nd Edition Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry s.n. "tooth," states "The fang has been recently disallowed for Society heraldry, due to its lack of ready identifiability. A similar charge, the 'tusk,' is still permitted; an elephant's tooth, couped and with point to chief by default." In commentary on Ivory Keep's badge, concerns were raised on identifiability of the charge; on the current submission, commentary questioned the recognizability and registerability of a boar's tusk at all. Given the lack of identifying features between a tusk and a drinking horn, and absent documentation otherwise, we will cease further registration of tusks of any kind effective as of the January 2018 decision meeting. This submitter will be allowed to register an elephant's tusk if submitted in a timely manner.

Even if the charge were registerable, this device must also be returned for violation of SENA A3D2c, Unity of Orientation. Both the antlers and tusk are long charges, and so can have comparable orientations. While the antlers are palewise, the tusk is in an orientation halfway between palewise and bendwise. This orientation is reinforced by the bendwise couping and substantial curve of the tusk.

This submission has replaced the charge in base to provide better identifiability.

5: Domitius Regulus Augustus - New Name & New Device

Gules, an antelope passant and in base a thunderbolt fesswise Or.

No major changes.
Culture (3rd Century Roman) most important.
Spelling (spelling as presented) most important.

This name follows the Roman naming convention of <nomen> + <cognomen> + <cognomen>. This construction is mentioned in Academy of St. Gabriel report 2206 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2206.txt).

The nomen <Domitius> is found in "A Simple Guide To Imperial Roman Names" by Ursula Georges (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html).

The cognomina <Regulus> and <Augustus> are found in "A Study of the Cognomina of Soldiers in the Roman Legions" by Lindley Richard Dean, which can be found online as a free ebook at http://books.google.com.

<Regulus> is found in the list of "Nouns Used As Cognomia" on p. 75; Lewis & Short also have an entry for the surname itself:

Rēgŭlus , i, m., I.a Roman surname. I. Of the Atilii, among whom was the celebrated consul M. Atilius Regulus, who was taken prisoner by the Carthaginians in the first Punic war, Cic. Off. 3, 26, 99; id. Fin. 2, 20, 65; Sen. Prov. 4, 5; cf. Gell. 6, 4, 1 sqq.; Sen. Prov. 3, 4 and 9 sqq.-- II. Of the Livineii, Auct. B. Afr. 89, 3; Cic. Fam. 13, 60, 1; id. Att. 3, 17, 1.-- III. Another, called by Modestus omnium bipedum nequissimus, Plin. Ep. 1, 5, 14.-- IV. Aquilius Regulus, Tac. A. 3, 42.

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0059%3Aentry%3DRegulus2

<Augustus> is found in the list of "Names of Emperors Used As Cognomia" on p. 80 and in also in Lewis & Short: I. majestic, august, venerable, worthy of honor. (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0059%3Aentry%3Daugustus1)

There was discussion in commentary as to whether this name is presumptive, as one translation could mean <Prince Emperor>. The Latin alternate title for Prince is not <Regulus>, it is <Princeps>. The byname <Augustus> shows up as the cognomen of several soldiers, so it was not limited to use by emperors. The cognomen <Regulus> was not limited in period for those who would otherwise be described as princes as shown in the Lewis & Short entry. We defer to Pelican, but do not believe that either byname alone or the combination together would be presumptuous. The submitter does not appear to be using these bynames to make a claim to something he is not, as would <Regina of England>.

No conflicts found.

This depiction of a thunderbolt is common on coins minted for the Roman Empire and also throughout Greece. Documentation from the British Museum is attached.

6: Elina of York - New Name & New Device

Per chevron purpure and Or, two cat's paw prints and a cat sejant counterchanged.

Sound (As spelled) most important.

Tir Righ Submission

Elina is found in Family Search:

Elina, Female, 10 June 1572, Birchington, England, B04730-9

Elina Lambert, Female, 23 August 1568, Redbourne, Lincolnshire, England, B05232-8

"of York" is a locative byname. The city of York is first mentioned in a period text in 625 and the spelling of the city's name is unchanged to the present. Cited by the Academy of St. Gabriel (http://s-gabriel.org/names/badger/placenames.html#Y

Regarding the potential conflict raised by OSCAR:

We have to compare <Ellen> and <Elina>. SENA PN.3.C.2 says in part, "The addition or removal of a syllable makes two names substantially different in sound." I think <Ellen> is pronounced /EL-ehn/ and <Elina> is pronounced /EL-ehn-@/. Technically, the schwa sound at the end of <Elina> is addition of a syllable, but I think <Elina> is a spelling variant of <Elena>, which itself is found under the heading <Ellen> in Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html). I'd think that it would be a call for Pelican. Otherwise, the rest of the name is fundamentally identical.

8: Ellisif in væna - New Name & New Device

Purpure, a bull's head cabossed between three crescents Or

Culture (9th-11th century Norwegian) most important.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1991, via An Tir.

Pily bendy wavy sable and argent, on a chief Or three crescents sable

The submitter included a letter as follows:

I, name redacted, known in the SCA as Giuliana Audaci, hereby release my registered armory, Pily bendy wavy sable and argent, on a chief Or three crescents sable. I understand that release of armory is permanent.

10: Isabella Peccetti - New Name & New Device

Per fess sable and vert, a unicorn rampant argent horn and in chief a crescent Or

No major changes.
Sound (Pa-chet-e) most important.

Tir Righ Submission

Giata Alberti at 2018-09-13 11:22:33
As the submitter indicated that the sound (Pa-chet-e) is most important, the use of <Peccetti> as found in 1616 by Maridonna Benvenuti would be appropriate. Peccettii would sound completely different, with four syllables instead of three.

Elizabeth Turner de Carlisle (Lions Blood) at 2018-09-10 18:15:41
We find <Isabella> in Names from Sixteenth Century Venice by Juliana de Luna (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/16thcvenice.html).

The byname of the author of the volume shown in the documentation is Peccetti with one /i/ and not two. I think the extra /i/ means that the book/research belongs to Francesco Peccetti. The volume is in Latin, published by a German, and it's the only source I can find for this byname. It's a free ebook on Google Books (https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Francesco_Peccetti_Cheirurgia_Francisci_Peccettii?id=0pT zhtMjQw8C). Every place I can find it referenced, the second /i/ is dropped. This would make sense for the pattern of Italian bynames I've found elsewhere.

13: Livia Atella - New Name & New Device

Purpure, a squirrel passant and in chief three acorns argent.

Culture (Roman) most important.

<Livia> is the feminine version of <Livius>, found in "A Simple Guide to Imperial Roman Names" by Ursula Georges, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html, and formed as demonstrated in the article.

<Atella> is the feminine version of <Atellus>, formed as above. <Atellus> is the cognomen of Gaius Mamilius Atellus, the first plebian to be elected as curio. He is mentioned in a number of volumes on Google Books:

  • Roman aristocratic parties and families, by Friedrich Münzer, Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999. pp. 68, 421, 479
  • Fasti Sacerdotum: A Prosopography of Pagan, Jewish, and Christian Religious Officials in the City of Rome, 300 BC to AD 499, by Jörg Rüpke and David Richardson, Oxford University Press, 2008.
  • The War with Hannibal: The History of Rome from its Foundation, Books 21-30, By Livy, Penguin UK, Sep 30, 2004.
  • Latomus, Volume 19, Editions Latomus, 1972.
  • In addition, <Atella> is the name of an ancient Oscan city which lie in ruins by the eleventh century when a new diocese was built on top of it (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/02151a.htm).

    <Marcella> is found at https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJZK-96R, marriage of Marcella Griffe, 15 Jan 1587, batch M01959-9.

    <Witchhazel> is a botanical term dated as early as the 1540s in the Oxford English Dictionary, s.n. witch hazel | wych hazel, n. This byname follows the pattern of period bynames based on botanical terms in Reaney & Wilson like "Wortes", s.n. Wort, "Woderose", s.n. Redrose, "de Ferne", s.n. Fern, "ate Russh", s.n. Rush, "in le Welwes", s.n. Willow, and "Hasyl", s.n. Hazel.

    OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2013, via An Tir.

    Per chevron inverted sable and purpure, two winged elephants combatant and in base a cricket contourny argent.

    The submitter's previous device appears on this letter: https://oscar.sca.org//index.php?action=100&loi=2153. It appears as though it was returned for conflict at Kingdom, but as the An Tir Submissions Team can find no record of the return and the submitter never received a notification, we are accepting this as a device resubmission.

    18: Olaff Beer Gripper - New Name Change & Resub Device

    OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in January of 2019, via An Tir.

    Per pale sable and gules, a bear maintaining a dagger between in chief two drinking horns palewise Or

    Old Item: Olaff greypr, to be released.

    <Olaff> was registered as a given name to the submitter in September 2016 via Caid. SENA PN.1.B.2.g.

    <Beer> is found at https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NXM2-7Y7, marriage of Ellnor Beer, 1593. Batch M15349-1.

    <Gripper> is found at https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NRS2-VB3, christening of Alexander Gripper, 24 Feb 1628. Batch P01384-1. In this record, his father's name was also Alexander Gripper.

    There was discussion about whether this would fall under obtrusive modernity. We do not believe that the existence of an item called a "beer gripper" automatically makes this name obtrusively modern, as the majority of commenters did not even know that the item existed. The submitter is aware of how it appears and earnestly wants to use this name in all seriousness. As the elements can all be documented, we forward it for Pelican to decide.

    No conflict found.

    The submitter's previous device was returned by Laurel in July 2017:

    Olaff greypr. Device. Per pale purpure and sable, a bear statant erect maintaining a dagger between in chief two drinking horns Or.

    This device must be returned for redraw. The dagger in the forepaw of the bear is so small that half of the attendants at the decision meeting did not notice it until its presence was pointed out. As a maintained charge, worth heraldic difference, the dagger needs to be large enough to be recognizable.

    20: Rotrude Halfblind - New Name & New Device

    Per pale wavy argent and sable, three bees in pale argent

    Language most important.
    Meaning (unspecified) most important.

    <Rotrude> is found in Early Germanic Names from Primary Sources by Magistra Nicolaa de Bracton of Leicester, http://nicolaa5.tripod.com/articles/german.html. It is listed under "Women's names from Two Lives of Charlemagne".

    <Halfblind> is a constructed byname from the Middle English Dictionary. This has temporal compatibility issues with <Rotrude> discovered during the internal commentary period which were solved by finding similar bynames in Bosworth-Toller.

    Bosworth-Toller has <healf>, http://bosworth.ff.cuni.cz/018402, and <blind>, http://bosworth.ff.cuni.cz/004676.

    This byname follows the pattern of words that follow the healf entry in Bosworth-Toller; though they don't show healf-blinde specifically there is a similar healf-féþe "half-lame".

    An Anglo-Saxon <healf-blinde> would become <Halfblind> via Lingua Anglica.

    No conflicts found.

    21: Rurik Gjafvaldsson - Resub Device

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

    Gules, in pale a wheel and an axe head Or

    The submitter's branch is Vulcanfeldt.

    The submitter's name was registered in December 2016.

    The submitter's previous device was returned by Laurel in December 2016:

    Rurik Gjafvaldsson. Device. Gules, in pale a wheel and an axe head fesswise Or.

    This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters could not identify the charge in base. Although an axe head is a period charge (as can be seen in Siebmacher, 1605, plate 123) this depiction does not match the documented period depiction. The period axe head is symmetrical and has a hole visible where the haft attaches.

    23: Snorri Styrr Boli - Resub Device

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

    Gules, a chalice argent

    The submitter's previous device was returned in May 2018 by An Tir:

    Snorri Styrr Bolli. New Device. Sable, a pale gules, a chalice between two boars courant argent.

    This device is returned for style issues. The pale does not have sufficient contrast with the field, as they are both colors. This issue could be solved by choosing a different tincture for the field or the pale, or fimbriating the pale argent or Or.

    With the submitter's permission, this device was redrawn at kingdom and colored in marker.

    We note the device of Kathleen Erin-go-burne-the-Bragh (January 1974):Vert, a chalice argent containing flames Or. In the past, this device has been reason to return a number of single silver chalices/grails on the field. Now that maintained items count for difference, we request clarification as to whether the flames on Kathleen's chalice are large enough to count for difference.
