Sound most important.

Fjolnir: According to the Nordic Names website, Fjolnir is an Old Norse name containing the name element Fjol, meaning "much" or "manifold". It is also from the Proto-Norse name *Felun-eR, Old Norse fela = 'hide' and From the Proto-Norse name *FelduniR, Ancient Germanic *felþa = 'field'. It also was a name for Óðinn and it was possibly understood to be 'the one who knows much. It was also the name of a legendary Swedish king, the son of Freyr and Gerðr. According to the Ynglingatal, he was the first king of the Ynglingar The nordicnames website cites these references:Lena Peterson: Nordiskt runnamnslexikon (2002) Günther Drosdowski: Duden Etymologie - Herkunftswörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (1997) Rudolf Simek: Dictionary of Northern Mythology (1993) https://www.nordicnames.de/wiki/Fjolner ; geneanet.org shows a King Fiolner Fjolnir Yngvi-Freysson Of Uppsala born about 256 in Uppsala, Sweden and deceased in 312 in Uppsala, Sweden , age at death: possibly 56 years old https://gw.geneanet.org/comrade28?lang=en&n=uppsala&oc=0&p=king+fiolner+fjolnir+yngvi+freysson+of

Laeiknarr: According to the Viking Answer Lady website, Laeknarr is of uncertain etymology but made of the name elements Norse adjective leikinn "inclined to play" or may represent confusion between the first elements Líkn- and Leik-, and the second name element arr http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#Leikr http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#arr

Originally submitted as <Fjolnir Læiknarr> but the submitter approved the change to <Folmar lækner> which was provided by commentors, during internal commentary, as a more Danish name option.

Additional Documentation by ffride wlffsdotter & Orle:

Diplomatarium Danicum has examples of a name it normalises as Folmer with:

Folmar Ieepsson, 1396, Middle Low German (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/13960301001)

Folmari Iacobi, 1406, genitive case in Latin (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14061111003)

her Falmers, riddhers, 1411, genitive case in Old Danish (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14110327006)

her Falmer Ipsszen Lwnge, 1411, Early Modern Danish (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14110327004)

her Folmar Iæcopssøn riddere, 1408, Old Danish (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14080104001)

Would F_olmar be an acceptable late 14th century (to early 15th century) Danish name? There's also the occupational title of sorts (again, in modern Danish "lægmand" or a layperson. it's spelled "leghman" in this Old Danish document from 1405: https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14050121002

But it appears as a byname laicus in Latin-language documents:

Petro Iohannis laico Sleswicensis diocesis, 1404 (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14040317002)

Ottonis Krempestorp laici, 1402 (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14020131001)

Petrus Keelbech laicus, 1417 (https://diplomatarium.dk/dokument/14170802001) Would F_olmar leghman give the submitter something close to the 12-14th c. Danish name they're after?

<Fjolnir> is one of Óðinn's heiti, and also the name of one of the mythological Yngling rulers from the Poetic Edda. There's no evidence of its use by normal human people. See Lind Dopnamn cols. 274-275 s.n. <Fiolnir>. Lena Peterson's Nordiskt Runnamnslexikon has a couple of runic examples of <Fjolvarr>, which the submitter might consider. The closest we can get to the byname is probably the occupational byname <læknir> "leech, physician". See Lind Personbinamn cols. 249-250 s.n. <læknir>. That would give us <Fjolvarr læknir>. Seeing the horse's head on the arms, I'm guessing he's canting on "fjol-"/"foal". However, if he wants a name that actually indicates horses, we can do that, too: for instance, <Hrossbiǫrn> and <Hrosskell>, both in Lind Dopnamn col. 592. Or <Ióarr> from Nordiskt Runnamnslexikon.

Given the submitters authenticity request for 12-14th century Denmark, Lind Personbinamn col. 250 sn. læknir has: Rannog lækner, Norway, 1336 Except the (modern) Danish form is læge, and the Old Danish Dictionary/Gammeldansk Ordbog says it is "læke," which loses the important -nir/-narr sound. (https://gammeldanskordbog.dk/ordbog?select=l%C3%A6ke&query=l%C3%A6ge)

Wogrin - Submitter's legal name, driver's license submitted.

Zsoldos - Byname meaning soldier or mercenary, from Engel Pál: Kamarahaszna-összeírások 1427-ból (Akadémiai kiadó, Budapest: 1989), A collection of Tax documents from 1427 in Budapest. Found in a list of individuals from Gomor County.

Originally submitted as <Wogrin Zsoldos>, the submitter agreed to changing <Zsoldos> to <Soldos> per the commentary. The submitter liked the suggestion of <Vgrin> so requested a change to <Vgrin Soldos>.

Additional documentation provided by Kolosvari Arpadne Julia:

The index of landowners in that source uses modern spellings. My article based on it is in the MNA (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/julia/kamarahaszna.html), where you can see that the actual period spellings found in the tax list are Soldus (seven times) and Soldos (once). I still haven't found the 'zs' digraph before the 1700s.

Submitter may be interested in Fehértói s.n. Vogrinich: 1271 Capitulum Zagrabiensis Ecclesie ... nobilibus de Brochyna ... Thoma filio Widozlay ... Dobolou ac Wogrinich fratribus suis, s.n.

Ugrinch: 1273 pro Vidomero et Vgrinch, Dobrila frater eius ... nobiles de Brochina.

Rampart's Note: The submitter previously tried <Volgrin Zsoldos> in 10/2018 but it was returned by Kingdom because the documentation had it as mixing French and Hungarian/Romanian which are not a permittable language mix per SENA Appendix C.

18: Yazida bint Zarif - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2002, via the Outlands.

A goat clymant contourny sable gorged of a coronet Or

The previous submission, (Fieldless) A goat salient sable gorged with a coronet flory Or, was returned on the September 2017 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/09/17-09lar.html#Outlands_returns20) with the following: { This badge must be returned for conflict with the badge of Eric Edgarson, Lozengy gules and argent, a goat clymant sable. There is one DC for changes to the field, but no DC for the addition of the coronet. Clymant is the goat-specific terminology for rampant, which carries no DC from salient. The submitter is a court baroness, and thus entitled to display a coronet.}


Thus ends the April 2019 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

In Service,

THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a
