Sword and Thorn

(Fieldless) A sword inverted enfiling a chaplet of thorns argent.

No major changes.

Consulting Herald Karl Faustus von Aachen
Submitter is from Innilgard

SENA App E.B notes: "The designator Company and its translations may be used for both orders and household names."

Medieval Secular Order Names: Standard Forms of Order Names by Juliana de Luna [1] lists fraternal orders that comprise two heraldic charges: Fish and Falcon, Hound and Wreath, Unicorn and Maiden. Both swords and thorns are heraldic charges in the singular (the latter as a tree, bush or chaplet, or alternatively as the letter Þ if tricksiness is needed) so the name should be acceptable as-is. The client would NOT be willing to change "Thorn" to "Thorns" in the name because of other unwanted associations.
