East LoI dated 2019-06-30

To Juliana Laurel, Alys Pelican, Cormac Wreath and the College of Arms, greetings from Muirenn Blue Tyger and the East Kingdom College of Heralds.

It is the intent of the East Kingdom to register the following items, which I reccommend for your attention:

1: Agnes de Lyon - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2018, via the East.

Or, two badgers combatant sable masked argent and on a chief vert a rapier fesswise argent


2: Aleta d'Argent - New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Aleta d'Argent in October of 2018, via the East.

Argent, on a pall azure a hummingbird rising to sinister argent

There is an SFPP for the use of a hummingbird.


3: Ali al-Abbas - New Name & New Badge

(Fieldless) A masculyn vert braced with a masculyn Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Al-ee al-ah-bas) most important.

Ali is a masculine ism (given name) documented in Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices, by Da'ud ibn Auda. https://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm

al-Abbas is a nisba (byname) meaning 'the frowner' found in Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices by Da'ud ibn Auda https://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm

Kingdom commentary added that <al-Abbas> can function as an ism or a nisba according to Da'ud's articles. It is being used as a nisba here.

The submitter has no preference for diacritical marks, and we have omitted them for this submission.


4: Ali al-Abbas - New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

(Fieldless) Two masculyns braced Or


5: Alric the Younger - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2016, via the East.

Vert, a boar's head erased close and on a chief enarched argent four broad arrows vert

This device was previously returned on the April 2018 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/04/18-04lar.html#169):

Vert, a boar's head erased close between in pale an arrow fesswise reversed and an arrow fesswise, a bordure potenty argent.

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation" The arrows in this device are not in a unified orientation, as they are pointing in opposite directions and need to be blazoned separately.

The submitted blazon used the phrase between two arrows counter-fesswise fesswise, in an attempt to extend the pattern of passant quadrupeds facing in opposite directions to inanimate objects. However, until documentation that inanimate objects were depicted in a similar fashion, the pattern cannot be extended past quadrupeds at this time.

This is a complete redesign.


6: Ameline qui dosnoie - New Name & New Device

Sable, a panther couchant argent spotted and collared azure incensed proper, on a chief dovetailed argent three roses fesswise slipped and leaved azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.

11: Dimitrios Alexandrou - New Name & New Device

Per pale gules and sable, a double-headed eagle maintaining in its talons a spear fesswise and a bordure Or

19: Joan Malet - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2018, via the East.

Sable, a comet and a gore argent

This item was returned at the Kingdom level in May 2018. We believe this redraw addresses the concerns raised.

"This device is returned for violation of the long-standing precedent prohibiting charge gores. It was originally banned on the Nov. 1991 cover letter (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1991/11/cvr.html), reconsidered in 2014, and upheld on the May 2014 cover letter (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/05/14-05cl.html#5.)"

During kingdom commentary, some questions were raised about the non-standard orientation of the comet. The submitter has approved an adjustment to the artwork to depict a palewise comet.

There is a step from period practice for use of gore with another charge.

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

20: John Teller - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2018, via the East.

Quarterly sable and Or, a Latin cross swallowtailed argent

This device was returned on the February 2018 East Kingdom LoD (https://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2018/February%202018%20LoD.pdf):

This device is returned for a lack of identifiability, as the very short-armed swallowtail cross is nearly indistinguishable from a mullet of eight points.

Additionally, as a separate grounds for return, the black and white emblazon does not match the color. The diagonal lines in two of the quarters of the line drawing do not appear in the color rendition. While it is possible that the submitter was trying to use the lines to "trick" the black and white version, the SCA does not use tricking. Furthermore, no version of tricking we are familiar with uses diagonal lines to represent sable.

We feel this redesign addresses the issues presented.


21: Lupold Hass - Resub Device

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

Per pale azure and sable, a hare courant argent and a bordure Or

This device was returned on the December 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/12/14-12lar.html#198):

This device submission conflicts with the device of Matilda Bosville de Bella Aqua: Per fess embattled gules and argent ermined azure, in chief a coney courant argent. There is one DC for changes to the field but none for position as Matilda's coney is forced into chief.

We believe this redesign addresses the issue.


22: Margot de la Mer - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2018, via the East.

Per pale sable and gules, a demi-sun issuant from sinister Or

This device was returned on the October 2018 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/10/18-10lar.html#149):

This device is returned for violation of SENA Appendix J, which disallows "A design with charges only in sinister chief and in central base and variants (like in chief and dexter base)." In this design, the charges are in canton and in sinister, which is a clear variant of the two examples listed.

We believe this resubmission addresses the stated issue.


23: Matilda of Oxford - New Name & New Device

Argent, a bear rampant and a bordure azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (would like to have Oxford in some way) most important.

Matilda is a feminine given name found in England in 1222 in the DMNES, from The Domesday of St. Paul's of the Year M.CC.XXII.; or, Registrum de Visitatione Maneriorum per Robertum Decanum, William Hale, editor. http://dmnes.org/cite/Matilda/1222/StPaulDom

of Oxford is a town in England found in Eckwall with the spelling <Oxenford> dated to the Domesday Book in 1086. Application of Lingua Societas gets the modern spelling.

The form was sent in without documentation and included a request for assistance, which was provided by Lilie Pantheon.


24: Milosne Miroslava nyakas - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Meaning ('married to Nicholas') most important.

Questions were raised during kingdom commentary about the formation of this name. With permission from the submitter, the name submission is being adjusted to Miklosne Miroslava nyakas.

Miklosne is a byname formed from the given name <Miklos>, which is a Hungarian form of <Nicholas>. The <-ne> ending indicates that this person is someone's wife. https://heraldry.sca.org/names/magyarnames1012.html#construct

Miroslava is a feminine Slavic name found in the article Early Croatian Given Names, by Walraven van Nijmegen http://heraldry.sca.org/names/croat.html

nyakas is a descriptive meaning 'necky' or 'stubborn'. Kázmér s.n. Nyakas dates the header spelling as early as 1407.

Construction of the name is according to Hungarian Names 101, by Walraven van Nijmegen. Link above.


25: Ǫzurr Styrbjarnarson - New Name & New Device

Argent goutty vert, a leather boot proper and a base vert

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (aw-zur and something close to 'Stormborn') most important.

Ǫzurr is a male Norse given name found in Geir Bassi, p 17. It is also found on the Viking Answer Lady website under Norse Names from Runic Inscriptions for Men Who Went to Byzantium http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/VarangianNames.shtml#Varangians

Styrbjarnarson is a patronymic formed from the name Styrbjorn, found in Geir Bassi, p 15. Patronymic formation, p 17-18.

Submitted with an o-circumflex, Gunnvor Orle has clarified that the character is intended to be an o-ogonek, as stated at the beginning of the article, "Throughout this article, o-circumflex (ô) is used to represent the character o-ogonek (see image), which is not available as an ASCII character. This is the same convention used in the Samnordisk Runtext Databas." As the submitter allows for all changes, we have changed the character to correspond with the documentation.

The submitted artwork is clearly colored brown, although the OSCAR color correction interprets the boot as being red.


26: Panther Vale, Shire of - Resub Branch Name & Resub Device

Vert chaussé Or, in pale a panther statant incensed Or spotted of diverse tinctures and a laurel wreath Or

No changes.
Spelling (not specified) most important.

Consulting Herald: Conall an Doire

This name and a previous device were returned on the June 1999 LoaR (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1999/06/lar_0622.html):

The LoI presented no documentation for the name. The college could find vale used in English place names, albeit rarely, but no documentation could be found for Panther in English place names. Barring documentation this name must be returned.

We do not form holding names for groups, so the name must be returned. However, even if the name was registerable we would return the device as it conflicts with Alanna of Caer Du Pard Or, on a pile throughout vert, a tower Or, on the battlements a snow-leopard couchant reguardant proper. While we blazon them differently, we give no difference between chaussé and a charged pile. Therefore there is one CD for the difference to the charges on the pile.

We believe that these resubmissions address the issues raised.

<Shire> is a branch name designator listed in SENA, Appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE

<Panther> is found as a byname in the record of Johanna Panther on Family Search, buried 23 Feb 1596, Dorset, England. Batch # B39606-3 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J85P-7TP

<Vale> is a generic toponym seen in Bardsley, s.n. Vale, which has del Vale, Edw. I and de la Vale, Edw. II.

Construction is based upon Family Name + Generic Toponym noted in "Compound Placenames in English" by Juliana de Luna, http://medievalscotland.org/jes/EnglishCompoundPlacenames/

During kingdom commentary, there was confusion about the shape of the panther, which more closely resembled a canine than the heraldic panther. The shire has approved new artwork that clarifies the nature of the charge.


27: Petr Magnusson - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2018, via the East.

Argent, on a flame vert a dagger inverted proper


28: Ragnar MacHardy - New Alternate Name & New Device Change

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.
Language most important.

No holding name. Additional documentation for <Temur> provided by Lilie Dubh Pantheon.

Temür is a masculine Mongolian given name found in Mongolian Naming Practices, by Linda M. Miku. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html

Numuchi is a constructed Mongolian occupational byname meaning archer or bow-maker. The word <Numu(n)> means bow in Mongolian, according to the book Yiyu, by Akos Bertalan Apatoczky (2006). The suffix <-chi> is used for occupations in Mongolian, such as in <Qorchi=Quiverbearer>,<Ba'urchi=cook/steward> or <Tölgechi=diviner/soothsayer>.

A translation of the first page was provided by Kolosvari Arpadne Julia in 2011, when used in another submission:

Doctoral dissertation theses

Mongolian Linguistics Doctoral Program

2006.

The _Dengtan Bijiu_ is a military encyclopedia consisting of 40 scrolls, assembled in the _Ming_ dynasty, in the 27th year of the _Wanli_ reign (1599). The work contains a chapter titled _Yiyu_ ('translation'), which is a parallel word list in Chinese and Middle Mongolian. Several similar word lists have survived from the _Yuan_ era, of which the most famous are the _Hua Yi yiyu_ and the _Zhiyuan yiyu_. These works were written in the Chinese translation- and interpretation-offices, the _Si Yi Guan_ and _Hui Tong Guan_, for educational purposes, and without any intent of perfection or completeness: the emphasis was on teaching basic vocabulary in the foreign language. Few such works survive from the _Ming_ era, especially from the latter part, and while the earlier works have appeared in multiple excellent critical editions from such linguists as Lewiczki, Ligeti, Kara, etc., the _Yiyu_ has only been transcribed and explained ...

Originally submitted as a new device, we have clarified with the submitter that they already have a device registered, which they wish to retain as a badge. The OSCAR entry was updated to include this information.

30: Sláine ben Rónáin meic Robeird - New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Sl?ine ben R?n?in meic Robeird in August of 2013, via the East.

Azure an acorn argent capped and an orle Or

During kingdom commentary, a potential conflict was identified. The submitter has chosen to add an orle to clear that conflict, and approved this new artwork.


31: Stonebridges, Shire of - New Branch Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in December of 2015, via the East as Nor?fjor?r, Shire of.

Per pale wavy vert and azure, a bridge of two spans throughout and in chief a laurel wreath argent

Old Item: Norðfjǫrðr, Shire of, to be released.
Old Item: Azure, two mountains couped and a Viking longship, on a chief argent three laurel wreaths vert, to be retained as a badge.
Language (English) most important.
Culture (English culture) most important.
Meaning (being near the upper Hudson River bridges.) most important.

Stonebridges is a compound place name based on patterns found in Ekwall 4th Ed: Stonegrave, Stoneham (1281), Stonehouse, Stoneleigh (1153 and 1285), Stoneton (1316); pp 446-7.

The Lingua Anglica rule gets the more modern spelling.

There are other supports of the compound name, as patterns of stone + [item] exist in Stonhalle (Records of Norwich, 1287), Stonmell (Calendar of Inquisitions Miscellaneous Preserved in the Public Record Office, 1415). These examples are found in the ME Online: stone, # 18 "In Surnames, In Place Names" (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED43058)

There are many place names in Eckwall that use the deuterotheme {-bridge}. We have Bembridge (1316, 1345),Bracebridge (1212, 1230), Dudbridge (1292). The modern spelling of bridge instead of brigg or bregge is lingua anglica. Pluralization should require no extra documentation.

Maridonna Benvenuti offered additional documentation for the formation of Stonebridge, "R&W, p.429, s.n. Stonebridge: Walter de Stanbrugg 1296…'Dweller be a stone bridge.' Also p. 424, s.n. Stanbridge: Gilbert de Stanbrugge 1276, Simon atte Stanbrugg` 1332. From Stanbridge (Beds, Ha) or Stanbridge Grange in Slaugham (sx)."

The group would like to retain their old device as ancient arms. The group is currently known as the Shire of Norðfjǫrðr.

A petition of support is included in the packet.


32: Stonebridges, Shire of - New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Per pale wavy vert and azure, a bridge of one span throughout argent

A petition of support is included in the packet.

At Muirenn Blue Tyger's request, Mathghamhain Elmet researched the question of conflict between bridges, bridges throughout, and castles, particularly in regards to the protected arms of the Kingdom of Valencia, Gules, a city argent. We believe this badge to not be in conflict with those protected arms.

This is not a bridge of multiple arches, so by precedent it would conflict with a castle.

"Long-standing precedent holds that there is no CD between a castle and a non-period-style bridge.

"There's a CD for ... but none for castle vs. single-arched bridge." (John Quartermain, September 1992) https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1992/09/lar.html

"We have granted no difference in the past between a bridge and a castle, considering both to be stonework surmounted by towers." (Canton of Pont y Saeth, July 1993) https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1993/07/lar.html

"We grant no difference for castle vs. bridge, considering both to be towers connected by masonwork." (Shire of Middleford, September 1993) http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1993/09/lar.html"

However, Valencia's city has been ruled to be distinct from a castle:

"A castle ... does not conflict with the (mundane) Kingdom of Valencia: Gules, a city argent. ... As the emblazon of the Valencia royal arms depicts "a city" with many buildings surrounded by a wall, the difference between a city and castle is enough for the second CD. (Willa of Mathom Trove, December 2004) https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2004/12/04-12lar.html"

Additionally, although a bridge and a castle conflict, and castle and a tower conflict, conflict is not transitive and there is no conflict between a bridge and a tower. Therefore this bridge of a single arch throughout should not conflict with designs featuring a single tower:

"While a castle is not significantly different from either a tower or a bridge, there is little history of identification between a tower and bridge, unlike that between a tower and a castle. Neither is there a strong visual similarity between a tower and a bridge as there is between a castle and a bridge. Thus we find that there is a CD between a tower and bridge. (Michael Gillean of Blackwater Keep, August 1999) https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1999/08/lar.html"
