The precedent is a bit old now, but "sjóna" has been registered in the past. The April 2011 LoAR sn. Þórdís sjóna says:

"The byname sjóna "seeress" was used to describe normal people, and is not an unregisterable claim to superhuman powers; it was registered as recently as 2008."

Azure, on a bend between two lilies of the valley argent, a martlet azure.

Language (Occitan/French 12th Cent) most important.
Culture (Occitan/French 12th Cent) most important.

Resub from -Gleann Abhann GA iLOI dated 2018-04-18 - https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=20&loi=5088

Submitter is good with changing the name spelling to Elionor as recommended below.

Eleanor - As found in the report from St. Gabriel, We also found the following variant of <Eleanor>: Elionor [7] Occitan form 13th c. [http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2463.txt]

Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 2463 dates the Occitan "Elionor" to the 13th century, citing Ramons lo Montalbes' French/Occitan Names from the XII and XIII Century (https://s-gabriel.org/names/ramon/occitan/occitan_ef.html). That article specifies it appears as a feminine given name in a chanson de gest about the Albigensian Crusades written in the early 13th century. There, it is the name of a daughter of the king of Aragon who was wed to the count of Toulouse. It doesn't give any dates for "Eleanor"

Withycombe (3rd ed; 1988) The Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names - pages 96-97 - Eleanor(a), Elinor (f.) Provencal Ali(e')nor, a form of Helen (q.v.), first introduced into England by Eleanor of Aquitaine (11122-1204), wife of Henry II, but its popularity was rather due to her descendant Eleanor of Castile (died 1290), queen of Edward I, in whose memory her husband erected the so-called 'Eleanor crosses'. From the 12th to the 15th C the name usually appears as Alienor, Eleanor, Elianor. Alienora Cur 1199, 1213 Eleanora Cur 1205, 1207 Elianora FA 1303, 1346 Alianora FA 1428

I can find "Lomont" as a placename?

French Wikipedia says "En 1195, le village avait pour nom Lomont, en 1208 Lomunt, puis Loomunt, Loomont, Lemont, Losmunt." But doesn't have any footnotes for this: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lomont

Mémoires de la Société d'Émulation du Jura (1886) p. 220 has a transcription of a document from 1185 with:

"Petrus et Willermus fratres de Lomont"

(https://archive.org/details/mmoires00juragoog/page/n250) p. 225 has a transcription of a document from 1208 with:

"Petrus et Willermus de Lomunt, milites"

(https://archive.org/details/mmoires00juragoog/page/n254)

p. 251 in a document dated 1274:

"Pierres de Loomont"

(https://archive.org/details/mmoires00juragoog/page/n280)

So, given the placenames don't look normalised, that would give the submitter a 12th century "de Lomont".

The St. Gabriel report gives the 13th century form of Occitan Eleanor as Elionor. If the submitter wants the Occitan form, then the name should be Elionor de Lomont.

This was held last time since it had no name to pair with. Last time there was no issue

A Branch is a period heraldic charge as per the Pictorial Dictionary online by Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, Batonvert Herald Extraordinary, http://mistholme.com/?s=branch "In general, a slip is blazoned a "sprig" to indicate a long stem, with many leaves and several blossoms or fruits; in that case, the flowers are subordinate to the slip. There is also the "branch", denoting a woodier slip (typically from a tree) with fewer leaves, or none; the bare wood is clearly visible. Branches are found in the arms of Schönbühl, c.1340 [Zurich 294]."

Madoc Arundel (Garnet) at 2018-11-05 08:13:47

From Mistholme: "Vêtu (French for "vested") is a Continental partition of the field, formed by two lines from center chief and two lines from the base point, connecting at the sides of the shield. The partition thus strongly resembles a lozenge throughout; and it will conflict with a lozenge, all other things being the same. But the vêtu field differs from a lozenge in one respect: In normal usage, only the central part of the field is charged; the vested portions of the field remain uncharged. (Despite this, there are still a number of vêtu fields in Society heraldry with charges in the corner portions.)"

Therefore, I would suspect that it is permitted to charge the vested portion of the field, but it might be a SFPP.
