2: Gytha Bielke aff Aningasz - New Name (KLoI) (NP) & New Device (KLoI)

Or, three unicorn's heads erased azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.
The following changes are allowed: changing Aningasz to Aningoijs

Gytha Bielke aff Aningasz is a Swedish name combining a feminine given name with a surname (family name) and a locative byname.

Gytha is a feminine given name. According to Sveriges medeltida personnamn s.n. Gydha (#1), variations of the name are found between 12th and 16th centuries; the form <Gytha> since 1259 ("Gytha tidigast 1259", 'Gytha earliest 1259'). It is also found in SDHK (Medeltidsbrev) letter nr 633 from 1250 (https://sok.riksarkivet.se/sdhkEndastDigitaliserat=fa...#...)

Bielke is a Swedish family name. The portrait (#2) from 1595 of Ture Bielke af Åkerö (1548-1600) shows the name written as <Bielke> (the portrait is part of the collection of the Swedish National Museum: https://collection.nationalmuseum.se/eMP/eMuseumPlus?...).

aff Aningasz is a locative byname combining the preposition aff 'from' with the placename Aninkainen (in modern Finland). Suomalainen paikannimikirja by Sirkka Paikkala (ed.) s.n. Aninkainen (#3) dates <Aningoijs> to 1543 and <Anigasz> to 1553 (as well as other, earlier, forms with the two 'n's). Thus Aningasz is a plausible form. If the preferred "aff Aningasz" is not considered registrable, the submitter will accept "aff Aningoijs".

<aff> + placename (nom.) as a locative construction can be seen in several names listed in Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names) by Kerttu Katariinantytär Roisko (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm):

-s.n. Ambjörn (male): <Ambiorn aff Vmkiala> 1469

-s.n. Cecilia (female): <Cecilia aff Kwrala> 1477

-s.n. Maritta (female): <Maritta Larszdotter aff Oikola> 1551

Vanhat nimityyppimme (Finnish Names) by Kerttu Katariinantytär Roisko (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/FinnishNamesArticle.htm) has an female example of a long name pattern including given name + surname + locative (and adding in a patronym):

-s.n. Filippa (female) <Philipe Erichsdotter Fleming till Yllile> 1578 (given + patronym + family + locative)

Examples of the exact pattern given name + surname + locative (with male given names) in Satakunnan henkilötiedosto 1303-1571 by Seppo Suvanto (#4; the www location is temporarily inaccessible but the data can be accessed at https://web.archive.org/web/20190506193840/https:/... see page numbers below):

-"Michill Karhu aff Nwpala maksoi 1555 samoin leiviskän" ('<Michill Karhu aff

Nwpala> likewise paid in 1555 a talent'), p. 150 s.n. MIKKO HEIKINPOIKA

-"1553 Hendrich Käki aff Selckis maksoi erämaista kalaveroa yhden leiviskän"

('in 1553 <Hendrich Käki aff Selckis> paid fishing tax of wilderness a

talent'), p. 231 s.n. HEIKKI

(Fieldless) In saltire a weaver's shuttle sable and a knife inverted argent.

5: Safiyya al-Zarqa' bint Garsiyya al-Isbili - New Name (KLoI) (NP) & New Device (KLoI)

Safiyya al-Zarqa' bint Garsiyya al-Isbili

Azure, 6 orange blossoms argent seeded Or, two, one, two and one.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
The following changes are allowed: Necessary corrections for grammatical/period accuracy
Meaning (Signals European descent, al-Andalus, arabic) most important.

Safiyya, Garsiyya, and al-Isbili can be found in the article Andalusian Names: Arabs in Spain by Juliana de Luna (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/andalusia.html)

al Zarqa' can be found in the article Period Arabic names and naming practices by Da'ud ibn Auda (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm)

The form is ism + laqab + nasab + nisba: 'Safiyya the blue-eyed daughter of Garcia of Seville'

Mālik ibn Jinnī (formerly Basil Dragonstrike) (Lions Heart) suggests that the name should be registered as Safiyya bint Garsiyya al-Zarqa' al-Isbili His resoning is:

"In the thousands of names I have collected to make up my names lists (https://dragonstrike.neocities.org/names/), I have never found a laqab/nisba coming before an nasab (see https://dragonstrike.neocities.org/arabic/nmfrmgen). The formation is not in Da'us's article.

The formation given appears to be based on the following from Da'ud's article:

Abu Bishr al-Yaman ibn Abi al-Yaman al-Bandaniji

kunya + laqab/ism + one generation nasab [where name of father is a kunya] + nisba

This is a kunya as the first element, not an ism. It seems "al-Yaman" is one of those names that's (as Da'ud puts it) both an ism and a laqab/nisba used as an ism. IOW, the name in the article is a kunya+an ism+a nasab+a "cognomen".

In short, the formation of this name has not been documented, and I find no documentation for it. I believe the name should be Safiyya bint Garsiyya al-Zarqa' al-Isbili

The elements are all found as stated. The use of an apostrophe for a hamza is documented/allowed by SENA Appendix D."

There is a device which is close Alessandra Serena Renda of Gibellina "Azure semy of edelweiss proper, a bordure argent." https://oanda.sca.org//oanda_name.cgi?... The question is if there is enough of a visual difference between the edelweisses and the orange blossoms https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?...

Yours in Service,
