Grüß Gott!

Unto Juliana de Luna, Laurel; Alys Mackyntoich, Pelican; Cormac Mor, Wreath; and the esteemed members of the College of Arms does Herr Gotfrid von Schwaben, Saker Herolt of the Kingdom of Calontir send heartfelt greetings.

The Calontir College of Heralds presents this Letter of Intent for your consideration requesting registration of the following submissions:

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of January 02, 2017 as submitted.

(Fieldless) An increscent sable

3: Calontir, Kingdom of - New Release of Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1983, via Calontir.

Rottaler Herold


4: Calontir, Kingdom of - New Badge Association

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1983, via Calontir.

Purpure, a cross of Calatrava Or

This submission is to be associated with Standard Augmentation

This badge is already registered to Calontir as the Ensign. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1984/04/lar.html)

The following badge associated with this name was registered in April of 1984 (via Calontir):
Purpure, a cross of Calatrava Or.
Ensign

Badge Notes:
Kingdom law [AIII-321 AUGMENTATIONS OF ARMS (http://seneschal.calontir.org/calontir-law-14th-ed.php#appendix-3)] states that the Ensign may be used as an augmentation in addition to what has already been designated as the standard augmentation. This action is to explicitly designate the Ensign as such.


5: Cerric æt Blæcac - Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Cerric ?t Bl?cac in October of 2016, via Calontir.

Azure, on a pale argent a tree eradicated trunked sable leaved and fructed vert

Device Notes:
Original device Azure, on a plate an oak tree eradicated vert trunked sable. was returned on the October 2016 LoAR:
(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/10/16-10lar.html#140)

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Joorkin Volz: Azure, a labyrinth argent. A labyrinth is treated as a diapered roundel. Thus we get a DC for adding the tertiary tree, but nothing for type of primary charge.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of Catrin of Llanbadern: Azure, on a plate a rowan tree proper all within a bordure engrailed argent.

Putting the tree on a pale rather than a roundel clears the conflict.


6: Eyfríðr Geirsdóttir - New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Eyfr??r Geirsd?ttir in July of 2017, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A triskelion of spirals Or

Submission Notes:
This name was registered in July of 2017 (via Calontir). (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/07/17-07lar.html#170)

Badge Notes:
Per precedent under Elisabeth Laurel II (http://heraldry.sca.org/precedents/elisabeth/armory2.html#TRISKELE):

There is a step from period practice for the use of a triskelion of spirals. [Máel Coluim Mór, 04/2011, A-Middle]
During commentary, it was noted the potential conflicts with the following:
Skapti Herjolfsson:
Device: Vert, a triskelion of legs Or [FEB 1997, Middle]
Badge: (Fieldless) A triskelion of legs Or [MAY 1998, Middle].
(http://oanda.sca.org//oanda_name.cgi?p=Skapti%20Herjolfsson)
Kendra Sloane of Penmarch:
Device: Vert, three horse's heads conjoined in triskele Or
(http://oanda.sca.org//oanda_name.cgi?p=Kendra%20Sloane%20of%20Penmarch)
There exists one DC for changes to the field, and we believe there exists a second DC for changes to the type of triskele.


7: Felix Feyrer - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2017, via Calontir.

Or, a phoenix gules issuant from flames and a bordure rayonny azure

Device Notes:
The original device, Or, a phoenix gules issuant from flames azure, was on the Calontir LoI dated 26 JAN 18 (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=4936). It was returned at Kingdom for conflict with the registered device of Bótfríðr í eplagarði (Feb 2016, East): Or, a phoenix gules rising from flames azure and in canton a heart sable. That gentle declined to grant permission to conflict. This design adds a bordure rayonny azure to clear the conflict.

After kingdom commentary, the emblazon was redrawn by Gunnvor Orle due to issues with the rayonny bordure and is used herein with the submitter's approval.


8: Grete Traurnicht - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2017, via Calontir.

Argent, in fess two thyrsi proper and on a chief vert an arrow Or

Device Notes:
This device was returned on the LoAR dated June 2018:
(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/06/18-06lar.html#120)

This device is returned for redraw. The arrowhead and fletchings of the tertiary charge were so small that most commenters struggled to identify it as an arrow. Upon resubmission, please drastically increase the size of both the fletchings and the broadhead.
This redraw addresses those issues.


9: Helias Hawke - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of July 06, 2018 as submitted.

Azure, a sun Or and a hawk close within a bordure argent

Device Notes:
The emblazon was redrawn at Kingdom due to stylistic issues with the bordure. The redraw has been approved by the submitter.


10: Isabella l'erbiere de Fleur - New Name & New Device

Isabella l'erbiere de Fleur

Vert, on a bend sinister between two flames argent three triquetras vert

Meaning (the herb merchant) most important.

Isabella: English feminine name listed in Names in the 1319 Subsidy Roll of London by Sara L. Uckelman, known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael. (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/femlondon1319.html)

de Fleur: locative byname, ibid, s.n. Fleur and dated to 1421.

Name Notes:
SENA Appendix C supports the combination of an English given name with a French byname.

SENA Appendix A supports the pattern of given + byname + locative for both English & French languages; as a result, we surmise this pattern is supported when the given name is English and the byname & locative are French.


11: Kira Akahito - New Name & New Device

Per fess rayonny argent and gules, three oak leaves in fess gules

Culture (Japanese) most important.
Spelling (Akahito) most important.

13: Lonely Tower, Barony of the - New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 1989, via Calontir.

Belfyre, Award of

Spelling (Belfyre) most important.

Meta-pattern:
This name follows the pattern of naming orders after a person, found in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/). Further precedent established in the May 2011 LoAR permits this pattern stating:

[a] given name can be used to create an order name (one named after a founder or inspiration). [Order of Taillefer, 5/2011 LoAR, A-Lochac].
(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2011/05/11-05lar.html)
As per the September 2012 LoAR cover letter (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5), supports the use of family names documented in sixteenth century England which may be used to create given names.

Belfyre: 16th C. English surname documented via the Family Search Historical Records for Harrie Belfyre, christened 28 Jan 1576, Rangeworthy, Gloucester England, batch # C04935-1. (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JW7S-3BZ)

Submission Notes:
This name was registered in September of 2017 (via Calontir). (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/09/17-09lar.html#157)

Device Notes:

Commentary noted what might be considered a conflict with the registered device of Ivan of Kivachia (NOV 1982, West): Sable, a goblet inverted within a bordure embattled Or.

However, further study of the matter revealed there's one DC for changes to the field, and precedent under Elisabeth Laurel I's tenure states there's sufficient difference between a goblet and a tankard to supply a second DC.

... we grant difference between goblets and tankards ... [Medb ingen ui Mael Anfaid, 06/2007, R-Gleann Abhann]
(http://heraldry.sca.org/precedents/elisabeth/armory.html#CUP)


17: Nadya Helming - New Name & New Device

Name Notes:
An English given name with a German surname is an acceptable combination, per the CL of February 2015 LoAR, which states:

...we will allow the borrowing of given names from German into English and vice versa, in the context of the 16th and early 17th centuries. An English given name that is borrowed from German is considered to be English under Appendix C, and a German given name that is borrowed from English is considered to be German.
(https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/02/15-02cl.html)

Tali:

Taly: English feminine given name documented via Family Serach record for Taly Constant, christened 1630, England, batch # C03275-2.
(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JMPH-49S)

plausible alternate spelling: As per the December 2014 LoAR, s.n. Riane Goch (and elsewhere):
Blue Tyger documented Ryane as an English byname dated to the 16th century in the FamilySearch Historical Records. As i/y switches are common in English, both Ryane and Riane are plausible forms of this name.
(https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/12/14-12lar.html#77)
Similarly here, Tali is a plausible form of attested Taly.

Shaoyun: Chinese feminine given name found in Biographical Dictionary of Chinese Women: Tang Through Ming 618-1644 edited by Lily Xiao Hong Lee and Sue Wiles, p. 221. (https://books.google.com/books?id=Cw0pAwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=biographical+dictionary+of+chi nese+women:++tang+through+ming&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjEj_3Q1JLdAhVL6IMKHWcsAQAQ6AEIJzAA#v=onepage&q =shaoyun&f=false)

24: Zygmunt Gdański - New Name & New Device

Vert, on a bend argent three dice palewise sable marked argent

Language (Late Middle Ages Poland) most important.

Zygmunt: masculine given name found in Polish Given Names in Nazwiska Polaków by Walraven van Nijmegen (Brian R. Speer) and Arval Benicoeur (Josh Mittleman). (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/walraven/polish/)

Gdański: locative byname found in ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 2633 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2633.txt). Various spellings are dated to 15th century:

Gedansky 1429, Gdanczki 1438, Gdanzky 1446, and Gdanszky 1449.

Name Notes:
The submitted spelling of this byname is not documented in the Saint Gabriel report. SENA Appendix A says for Polish that "i/y/j switches are common, and the use of accents is inconsistent." We feel that this supports spelling the byname with an accented 'n' and ending with an 'i'. We ask for assistance with documentation to support the spelling with an 's' rather than a 'z'.

Should the surname spelling Gdański not be substantiated, the submitter will accept the spelling variants (in order of preference) of Gdańzki, Gdańszki, or Gdańczki. Submitter does, however, prefer the ending with i over ending with y.


Herzlichen Danke to Laurel Sovereign of Arms, the Laurel Staff and the SCA College of Arms for their consideration of this letter.

Ich dien,
