1: Ylva of Clan Cunningham -New Name & New Device

Per pall inverted argent, gules and sable, two unicorn heads erased respectant counterchanged and a shakefork argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.



Ingrid Ylva was wife to Magnus Miniskiold and mother of Bingeir Jarl Magnusson early 12th-late 13thC (Olaus Petri. Svenska Krönika ed. G.E. Klemming.Stockholm: H. Klemming 1860) translation from Olaf Peterson's 1528 En Svensk Cröneka


Richard de Cunningham (1210-1233) reference in Dictionary of English Surnames by Reaney and Wilson pg. 121

Of Clan: SCA registered Names including:

Aeron Aschennen of Clan Mackenzie

Brenda Lynne of Clan Neil

Alexandra of Clan Donald

George of Clan o'Caine

Norse and Scottish Name combination:

Hervy de Cunningham fought for Alexander III of Scotland at Battle of Largs in 1263 against Norse invaders (George and Squire, Ramily (1994) Collins Scottish Clan and Family Encyclopedia pp. 377-388)

Not uncommon to take Norse prisoners. Conceivable a Norse prisoner and a member of the Cunningham family (a daughter of Hervy?) had a female child with a Norse given name.

"Of Clan Cunningham" would have distinguished Ylva from Hervy de Cunningham

Willing to change to Ylva Cunningham for registration if necessary

In Service,

James Red Flame
