Calontir ILoI dated 2019-10-28

Saƚùdo to Brigida Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds from Sióra Zaneta Baseggio, Eyas Herald. Please find herein the submissions received by this office for possible registration.

NOTE: While we love outside commentary, please wait a little while to allow our new Calontir heralds a chance to comment.

1: Develin Ó Sirideáin -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Devlin O Sheridan) most important.

Develin: late period English surname used as given name. Documented via An Develin, female, married 18 Jul 1604, Saint Botolph Bishopsgate, London, England, batch M00161-1

Ó Sirideáin: header form found in Woulfe, 4th printing, p. 645. The entry includes italicized 16th and early 17th century Anglicized Irish forms O Shiridane and O Sheridane. By precedent, the standardized Gaelic forms of such bynames are allowed.

SENA Appendix A supports combining English and Gaelic, both early and late.

2: Eyfriðr Geirsdóttir -Resub Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Eyfr??r Geirsd?ttir in July of 2017, via Calontir.

Per pale indented purpure and Or, a triskelion and a rose slipped and leaved counterchanged

This is a resubmission. The original submission was returned via Calontir on the February 2019 LOAR:

Eyfríðr Geirsdóttir. Badge. (Fieldless) A triskelion of spirals Or. This device is returned for conflict with the device of Goraidh Ailean na Gordanaich, Purpure, a triskelion pommetty pallwise Or. There is one DC for fieldlessness, but none for the type or orientation of the triskelion. There is a step from period practice for use of a triskelion of spirals.

This is a complete redesign.

3: Iacov ben Avraham -New Name & New Device

Per chevron throughout sable and argent semy of tortoises statant vert, in chief two mullets of six points argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling (Iacov) most important.

Both names are documented in "Names of Jewish Men, 6th to 11th Centuries" by Julie Stampnitzky.

Iacov: R[eb] Yaakov b[en] R[eb] Avraham, Wissembourg, France, d. 1270. Iacov is a reasonable alternate transliteration of <Yaakov>.

ben is used in Hebrew names to form patronymics, as set forth in SENA Appendix A, and demonstrated in the cited example.

4: James Dexter -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1983, via Meridies.

Per chevron gules and azure, a chevron argent and in base a tankard reversed Or

5: Jóka in rauða -New Name

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
Meaning most important.

Jóka: Old Norse feminine name from Viking Answer Lady, which says it's a short form for Jóhanna. CV pp. xxxiv s.v. "Pet Names".

in rauða: feminine form of "inn rauði" meaning red. "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelman)

NOTE: The submitter originally wanted a sound closer to Joki. She has no specific gender desired.

6: Kitsu Kotome -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Japanese) most important.
Culture (Japanese) most important.
Spelling (Kotome) most important.

Kitsu: family name. This name is registered to her legal father, Kitsu no Taro, thus, it is registerable via the Existing Registration Allowance. A letter of attestation of relationship is included.

Kotome 言女: constructed given name. Both elements are from NCMJ, revised edition. Koto 言 is found on page 260, dated 1332, with the meaning "Word / Speak Truthfully". -me 女 , page 420, is "a suffix commonly found in female names from the Nara and Heian periods which remained in use throughout the Muromachi period. This suffix simply means woman."

7: Lofnheiðr Hrafndóttir -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in June of 2016, via Calontir as Sigur?r skrifari.

Old Item: Sigurðr skrifari, to be released.
Meaning (No meaning given) most important.

Lofnheiðr: Found on The Viking Answer Lady's article on women's names.

"The first element Lofn- is used as the name of the goddess Lofn, one of Frigga's handmaidens, known as the goddess of love. The name is akin to modern English "love". The second element -heiðr is identical to the Old Icelandic heiðr, "heath", but usually drops the initial h in name-compounds." GB pp. 13; CV pp. 247, 397 s.v. heiðr, Lofn.

Hrafn: Found on The Viking Answer Lady's article on men's names. " Occurs as both a personal name and as a by-name throughout SCandinavia, found as Old Danish Rafn, Old Swedish Ramn, and OW.Norse Hrafn. From the OW.Norse noun hrafn "raven." The form Hrafn is very common in Iceland throughout the medieval period, and occurs in Norway as well, less frequently. Runic examples include the nominative form [hrafn] and the accusative forms rafn, raf-. There are a large number of Anglo-Scandinavian place-names in Raven-, Rauen-, Reven-, etc., but these are more likely to derive from Old English hræfn, "raven"." GB p. 11 s.n. Hrafn; FJ pp. 210-212 s.n. Rafn; CV pp. 281 s.v. hrafn; NR s.n. Hrafn.
