Pattern of "Houses Named after their Owners: Surname" from Inn Signs and House Names in 15th Century Paris by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) http://medievalscotland.org/jes/ParisInnHouseNames/

Houses were referred to with multiple patterns, including "maison de", and the article may be omitted.

The submitter is using the Existing Registration Allowance to allow use of his registered byname in constructing this household name.

SENA NPN.1.C.2.g.The Existing Registration Allowance: Name phrases from a name registered to an individual or branch may be used in a new non-personal name submission by that individual or branch, even if the name phrase is no longer registerable under the rules. The use of the existing registration allowance does not allow the submitter to evade new style problems (as discussed in NPN.2 below). It only allows the submitter a pass on style problems that already exist with the registered name. Documentation under the existing registration allowance does not exempt a name from conflict, presumption, or offense rules, unless that rules violation is itself part of the existing registration in question.

The element used may be the entire substantive element, the designator, or part of the substantive element. Only the exact, actual name phrase from the registered form may be used, not variants, patterns, etc., with the exception of submissions of branch heraldic titles and order names.

This style of ladle has been previously registered by the submitter's legal wife, and is being used under the Existing Registration Allowance (SENA A2B3 http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A2B3 .) Attestation of legal relationship is included in the packet, and images of the previously registered device are below.

There was some discussion as to whether this depiction of the ladle was close enough stylistically to that of the previous registration, because it has been altered a bit to fit the available space of the new submission. We commend this question to Wreath.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:

Elspeth "German Names from 1495", by Aryanhwy merch Catmael shows Elspeth occurring as a feminine given name 6 times listed in a German tax roll from 1495. http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/german1495.html

Schmalczin Schmalcz is also listed as a surname in "German Names from 1495", by Aryanhwy merch Catmael http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/surnames1495n-s.html

This is the masculine form of the name.

SENA Appendix A states that women may use the feminine form of a by-name indicating relationship, note: "Women commonly used a feminized form of their husband's or father's surname, either by adding the suffix -in/-yn, or used a genitive form ending in -s/-z or -en.

Therefore the feminine version of Schmalcz would be Schmalczin.

von Meittingen locative by name from the grey period using the form 'von X'.

According to Sena Appendix A "Locatives based on place names use the forms von X"

25: Olivia Baker - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2014, via the East.

Per chevron fleury counter-fleury Or and gules, two musical notes and a lily counterchanged

This is a resubmission.

This device was first submitted and returned on the December 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/12/14-12lar.html#206):

Olivia Baker. Device. Per chevron inverted fleury-counter-fleury Or and gules, a rose and two stalks of wheat counterchanged.

This device submission is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Here, commenters had trouble identifying the line of division used because of the complex treatment. The submitter could potentially solve this problem by drawing the full per chevron inverted line as normal with the demi-fleurs-de-lys issuing from the straight line, not issuing from an invisible line.

This device was resubmitted and returned on the June 2016 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/06/16-06lar.html#188):

Olivia Baker. Device. Per chevron inverted Or and gules, seven fleurs-de-lys in chevron inverted, alternately erect and inverted, between a rose and two stalks of wheat counterchanged.

Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as per chevron inverted fleury-counterfleury, what we have here is a group of fleurs-de-lys lying across the per chevron inverted line, with alternating upright and inverted fleurs. This creates identifiability issues as well as an arrangement that is not listed in SENA Appendix J, and so may not be registered without documentation that this is a period arrangement of charge groups. A proper fleury-counterfleury field division (as opposed to an ordinary) would have only demi fleurs-de-lys, issuant from the line of division, alternating upright and inverted.

We believe this device addresses the previous issues.

27: Pádraig Ó Brádaig - New Request for Name Reconsideration

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of January 31, 2017 as submitted.

Pádraig Ó Brádaigh

This is a request for name reconsideration. The submitter's name was registered on the April 2017 LoAR via the East, with the documentation for Ó Brádaig. It is a header form in Woulfe at p. 439 with one italicized Anglicized Irish form under it, giving the submitter the benefit of doubt that the Gaelic header form was used in the late 16th century. However, the header form in Woulfe actually has a dot above the final 'g', representing the punctum delens. Thus, the submitter's registered surname should actually be Ó Brádaigh

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia offered additional documentation for Renata:

"Here's a 1643 baptism from Germany that appears to be using Renata as a name: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NN2D-92L (Deutschland Geburten und Taufen, 1558-1898: Margaretha Renata Kerns, 06 Mar 1643, SANKT MICHAEL EVANGELISCH, SCHWAEBISCH HALL, JAGSTKREIS, WUE; GS film number 1343704, batch C92335-2). Snippet image attached; notice how the given names (which are almost all multi-element) are set apart from the rest of the text, supporting the impression that Renata is recorded as a name, not a Latin word."

33: Zari Bandak - New Name & New Device

Per fess Or and azure, in chief two roundels argent fimbriated each charged with a roundel sable

Culture (Middle Eastern, preferable Persian or Turkish) most important.
Meaning (Minion, or some sort of servant, is primary) most important.

This is a Middle Persian name constructed as a given name together with a literal descriptive byname.

The patronymic byname Zariy{a}n, attested in Middle Persian, uses a form of the word meaning 'yellow' ( "Personal Names, Iranian I. Pre-Islamic Names: General", Encyclopædia lranica. http://www.iranicaonline.org/articles/personal-names-iranian-i ) Zari is the corresponding father's name.

The submitter would prefer a name with etymology "little+ yellow" if possible. We ask for the College's assistance in documenting this form.

Bandak is a descriptive byname using a Middle Persian word meaning "servant" or "henchman". This word also appears in Middle Persian in the form bandag. Note that Middle Persian does not have grammatical gender. The word was also used as a given name: Encyclopedia lranica s.v. Banda ( http://www.iranicaonline.org/articles/banda-servant) notes that it appears in the patronymic form Bandagan during the reign of the third-century ruler Shapur I and lists multiple compound given names using bandak or banda as an element.

There was discussion at the kingdom level concerning whether this name, in conjunction with this device, can be considered obtrusively modern - referencing the minions characters from the "Despicable Me" movie franchise. The name has the requested meaning of "servant/henchman", and the submitter has asked for assistance in adding elements of "little+yellow". The device emblazon strongly resembles the genric form of "Despicable Me" minon - yellow head, wearing blue overalls, large eyes. While some minions have hair or other distinguishing features, the general shape and colors remain constant. See below for a common stuffed toy from the franchise.

Since rulings on obtrusive modernity are reserved for Wreath, we are forwarding this for consideration.
