Gleann Abhann GA iLOI dated 2019-09-15

Greetings to the Knowne World as southern US waits impatiently for fall!

1: Dorothea von Ulm -New Name & New Device

Per pale gules and sable, a feather and in chief two crescents argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity.
Language (German) most important.

Dorothea is a German female given name found in "German Names from Rottweil, Baden-Württemberg, 1441" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/rottweil1441.html).

SENA Appendix A states that German names may take a locative byname marked by "von -place-."

Ulm is a city in the Baden-Wurttemberg area of Germany. It's name is attested to 654, where it is called Hulma, in a document signed by King Louis the German. In Georg Braun and franz Hogenberg's "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" (Cologne, 1572), the woodcut map of Ulm is labeled both in Latin as "Ulma" and in German as "Ulm". (http://historic-cities.huji.ac.il/germany/ulm/maps/braun_hogenberg_I_31_2.html)

Correction to Device (2019-Sep-16 16:09:11): Feather and Quill Pen are similar in appearance and I do not think have a default position.

So this may need to be blazoned as "Per pales gules and sable, a feather palewise and in chief two crescents argent."

Having changed half of the primary charge and adding secondary charges, this is clear of Lachlann Alexander MacCoag (July 2015) Per pale gules and sable, in saltire a feather and a key argent.


2: Gaius Curtius Primus -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2014, via Gleann Abhann.

Per pale gules and sable three wolves' teeth issuant from dexter and three wolves' teeth issuant from sinister and in chief a bone argent.

This submission is to be associated with Cecilia Augustina

3: Hūma al-Naghira bint Maryam -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (Huma the hot tempered woman, daughter of Maryam) most important.

Hūma is a Persian feminine name found in the Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 3023 (http://s-gabriel.org/3023). It says in part that Huma was a Persian name given to court concubines in the 14th to 15th centuries, citing Leslie P. Peirce, _The Imperial Harem_, New York: Oxford University Press, 1993.

The byname al-Naghira is an Arabic nasab from the 9th to 12th centuries meaning 'the hot tempered woman' found in "Son of the Hot-Tempered Woman": Women's Names in Arabic Bynames by Juliana de Luna http://medievalscotland.org/jes/ArabicMatronymics/ bint Maryam is a matronymic byname derived using the feminine ism Maryam meaning daughter of Maryam and found in Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices by Da'ud ibn Auda https://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm Per SENA Appendix C, you can combine Persian and Arabic names in both earlier and later period.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2014, via Gleann Abhann.
