Landnamabok (Iceland) dates from the second half of the 13th century or a little later, though it has been suggested that it was composed in an early form by Ari Þorgilsson (1068-1148). The use of j for the consonantal i wasn't introduced until the 18th century (Cleasby-Vigfusson xv). Modern scholars often use j to represent this use of i as a consonant when writing Old Norse, but medieval ⟶manuscripts used i.

From: "S Friedemann"
2 Jun 1998
Greetings from the Academy of Saint Gabriel!
You wanted to know if the surname of <dell'Isola>, meaning "of the island," would be an appropriate byname for an Italian persona. Here is the information we have found.
<Isola> is a surname derived from a toponymic byname (a nickname based on a geographical area), most common in Liguria. [1] While we did not find <dell'Isola>, we found the other similarly-formed names <Dell'Acqua>, <Della Costa>, and <Della Valle> [1,2]. <dell'Isola> would be a fine choice.
We hope that this letter has been useful to you, and that you will not hesitate to write again if any part was unclear or if you have further questions. Research and commentary on this letter was provided by Arval Benicoeur.
For the Academy,
Aryanhwy Prytydes merch Catmael Caermyrdin

Submitter is from Rowany

The name was registered as Casa degli Libri on the December 2018 letter via Lochac. The submitter would like to change the name to "Casa dei Libri" as discussed in the commentary.

Casa: "Casa" is a standard designator for Italian: http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/leohousehold.html

"Casa dei Libri" follows the pattern of household names created from reference to family names, "house of xxx family". As "Libri" is masculine plural the contraction of the preposition is "dei". See for example: http://www.oneworlditaliano.com/english/italian-grammar/articulated-prepositions-in-italian.htm

The submitter would also like to associate the armoury "(Fieldless) A closed book palewise irradiated Or" registered in May 2014 via Lochac with this household name.

19: Strathorbie, Shire of -New Branch Name

Strathxxxx is found on several occasions being used in Johnston, James R. Place-Names of Scotland. e.g, pg 227 and 228 lists the following place names:

Strath, Strathhardle (1160), Strathaven (1522), Strathblane (1200), Strathbungo (550), Strathcarron, Strathearn (1200), Strathendry (1169), Strathkinness (1156), Strathmartin ( 1250), Strathmiglo (1200).

Strathbungo means " the valley of St Mungo"
Strathmartin means "the valley of St Martin"
Strathmiglo means "the valley of the swine pen".

Also, the Dictionary of the Scots Language (s.v. "strath") defines it (http://www.dsl.ac.uk/entry/snd/strath) as "A river valley, esp. at its broader parts with meadows and arable land, and freq. extending for many miles on either side of the river to the feet of the surrounding hills... Gen.Sc. Common as the first element in place-names, e.g. Strathmore, Strathclyde, Strathearn, Strathspey, Strathconon, and specif. as The Strath, i.e. Nithsdale, in Dmf." The Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (http://www.dsl.ac.uk/entry/dost/strathe) features cites back to the 12C, ("Stragrif"), and states "Freq. in place-names.".

This element is also documented in the Scottish Words and Placenames project, at https://swap.nesc.gla.ac.uk/database/?view=table&search=strath

Corby in mentioned on page 71, as "Corbie is Scots for Raven or Crow". This is used in two names in Scotland, being Corbiehall and Corbie Den.

At this time, the spelling alluded to in Place Names Of Scotland, being ~ie, is the preferred spelling for use for the "Shire of Strathcorbie".

The DOST also features Corby (http://www.dsl.ac.uk/entry/dost/corby) with a cite dating to the mid 16C of "Baith ravin and ruik, with corbie, ka and craw, Biggit nestis and eggis laid thairto;" ("both raven and rook, with corbie, caw and crow, big nests and eggs laid thereto.")

The Lochac College of Heralds Evidence of Support is attached, and has the signature of 13 members of the proposed Shire.

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as ?orvaldr Erlingsson ? Raumar?ki in September of 2018, via Lochac.

Per chevron Or and vert, three ravens rising counterchanged.

Consulting Herald Anwyn Davies
Submitter is from Stormhold


Included in this letter are some of the submissions from this year's Rowany Festival Herald's Point. Although I am proud to have organised this which was a first in my 3 years in this kingdom, it would not have been possible without the support and works of Annys Bombarde, Padraig Chaineshot, ffride wlffsdotter, and most particularly Glynhyvar of River Haven, who consulted on numerous items through the event and shouldered the vast majority of post-event submission processing.

Though, this letter does not contain all of the items from Rowany Festival, so I shan't announce a full tally here and now, but will do so on the Blazons Mailing List and the Lochac Heraldry Chat Facebook Group.

Yours in Service to Lochac

Bjorn Rocket


OSCAR counts 10 Names, 1 Name Change, 1 Alternate Name, 1 Household Name Change, 1 Branch Name, 12 Devices and 1 Badge. There are a total of 27 items submitted on this letter.
