8: João Afonso Terciopelo de Galicia -New Name & New Device

Argent: in cross five cat's heads sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

This can be seen as either a double given name with two bynames, a descriptive and a locative. Alternately (though less likely), it can be seen as a given name, a patronymic, then two additional bynames. : João and Afonso are found as given names in "Portuguese Names from the 16th Century: Letters from the Court of King John III" by Juliana de Luna heraldry.sca.org/names/portugal16.htm Terciopelo is a period Spanish word (appearing for example in CORDE hundreds of times between 1400 and 1600; it is intended to be a Galician or Early Portuguese unmarked descriptive byname meaning "velvet." The byname "de Galicia" is a locative byname; Galicia in that spelling occurs well over a thousand times before 1600 in CORDE. Client desires a 16c Portuguese name appropriate for the Portuguese viceregal mission in Goa (India). João and "the velvet" are the most important elements for the client. He will reluctantly allow an element (like Terciopelo) to be dropped if it cannot be registered with that element.


9: Jonathan Sanguinius Corvus -New Name & New Device

Per pale argent and sable, a raven displayed within an orle gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Jonathan is the submitter's legal given name, verified by Seraphina, Ragged Staff and Lillia, Crampette. Sanguinius is found as a nomen in G. D. Chase, "The Origin of Roman Praenomina" (https://www.jstor.org/stable/310491). Corvus: From the October 2016 LoAR is listed as Corvus is a 3rd-4th century BCE agnomen (nickname) also found as a cognomen: The cognomen Corvus can be found in two inscriptions from the early Imperial period (Kajanto, The Latin Cognomina, p. 331). The cognomen Corvinus appears in half a dozen inscriptions from the 1st and 2nd centuries CE, as well as in an inscription in Budapest dated to 210 CE (inscription HD071712/ CIL 03, 03390; http://edh-www.adw.uni-heidelberg.de/edh/inschrift/HD071712). Pattern listed in October 2018 as nomen + cognomen + cognomen Lillia will attach screenshots later Submitter will also accept Corvinus instead of Corvus if needed for registration.

Per fess flory counterflory argent and gules, in chief an eagle checky sable and Or.


11: Odilia of the White Waters -New Name

Submitter would prefer "Odelia" if possible. of the White Waters - The Barony of the White Waters is the submitter's home group. It was registered in April 1984.


12: Oscar von Lindau -New Name

No major changes.

Oscar is a German masculine given name found on the FamilySearch Historical Records: Oscar Reichart, male, Marriage 24 Jan 1637, Sankt Katharina Evangelisch, Schwaebisch Hall, Jagstkreis, Wuerttemberg. Batch M92339-2. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JHN9-FTG The constructed byname 'von Lindau' is derived from the place name Lindau, which is attested in that spelling in the 1643 _Topographia Sveviae das ist Beschreib_ by Martin Zeiller, Matthaeus Merian (der Ältere) (https://books.google.com/books?id=RH5SAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA123). Additional docs: Oscar is also (as "Oscar Laidig") listed July 24, 1598 in the Gottwollshausen, BadenWurttemburg record of Marriages, Parish Lists, Baptisms, and Deaths (https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/61023/1343752-00077?pid=11464399&treeid=&personid=& rc=&usePUB=true&_phrc=uVS11&_phstart=successSource). locative byname - the island of "Lindau" is located in the Bodensee, and a period map of the city which lists the Latinized town's name as "Lindoia," can be found in Braun and Hogenburg: Civites Orbis Terrarum (first Latin edition of Volume I, published in 1572 - https://historiccities.huji.ac.il/germany/lindau/maps/braun_hogenberg_I_31_4.html) A second map of the city can be found in Sebastian Munster: Cosmographie Universalis (1550), available at https://historiccities.huji.ac.il/germany/lindau/maps/munster_lat_1550_532.html which lists the town's name as "Lindaw" - "w" being used in Medieval Latin to represent the Germanic <u> phoneme, hence the German spelling best approximated as "Lindau" No Oskar or Oscar with similar surnames; no von Lindau
