An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2019-04-01

Greetings unto the An Tir College of Heralds from Elizabeth Lions Blood!

The following is presented for commentary in April 2019:

1: Áine inghean uí Shithigh -New Request for Name Reconsideration

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of July 24, 2018 as submitted.

Áine O Shehy

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (as presented) most important.

The submitter's branch is Corvaria.

This name combines an Irish Gaelic given name and an Anglicized Irish byname, which is considered a step from period practice. This name was submitted in June 2018 with a byname of <inghean uí Sithigh>. At this time it was discovered that the byname needed to be lenited, producing <inghean uí S/h/ithigh>. This was the grammatically correct version, and it was registered in October 2018 via An Tir.

We request that this name be reconsidered with the byname <O Shehy>. This spelling is Anglicized Irish and can be found in "16th & 17th Century Anglicized Irish Surnames from Woulfe" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Woulfe/.


2: Amicia of the Ruins -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2006, via An Tir.

Sable, an owl and in sinister canton a mullet argent, a bordure parted bordurewise argent and gules

The submitter's branch is Madrone.

The submitter's previous device of Per fess gules and sable, a bear statant argent was returned by An Tir in July 2018 for conflict with Septentria, Barony of (July 1986 via the Middle): Gules, a bear passant argent.

This submission is a complete redesign. The previous submission can be seen at https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=10&id=86561.


3: Antoine de la Beau-Ventre -New Name & New Device

Purpure, on a mullet of four greater wavy points and four lesser points within eight fleurs-de-lys in annulo a griffin rampant contourny sable and on a chief argent three chalices sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (French) most important.
Culture (13th century France) most important.

The submitter's branch is Adiantum.

Both elements are found in "DRAFT: Names in the 1292 census of Paris" by Sara L. Uckelman, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/1292paris.pdf.

<Antoine> is found in section 2.2 Masculine Given Names with 2 instances of this spelling.

<de la Beau-Ventre> is found in section 3.4 Other Descriptive Bynames with 1 instance of this spelling. It appears as simply <Beau-Ventre> but the submitter would prefer it with <de la> as other descriptive bynames are constructed.

    11: Feradach mac Tralin mec Domongairt -Resub Device Change

    OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2012, via An Tir.

    Per chevron gules and sable, a monster with the forequarters of a duck and the hindquarters of a ferret passant wings elevated and addorsed Or within an orle of snakes ondoyant argent

    Old Item: Per chevron gules and sable, a snake coiled erect argent and in chief a sword and a glaive in chevron Or, to be retained as a badge.

    The submitter's branch is Glyn Dwfn.

    The submittter's previous submission was returned in December 2018 by Laurel:

    Feradach mac Tralin mec Domongairt. Device change. Per chevron gules and sable, a monster with the forequarters of a duck and the hindquarters of a ferret passant wings elevated and addorsed Or within an orle of serpents glissant tergiant conjoined head to tail argent.

    Serpents, normally seen in profile, are here depicted as tergiant (that is, from above) which is at least a step from period practice, if not grounds for return in its own right. Charges in annulo or orle not in their default orientation are a step from period practice. The combination of these two practices is most certainly grounds for return.

    As in the previous month's return of the device of Finnian MacBride, we decline at this time to rule whether serpents tergiant are allowable on their own as a step from period practice.

    The previous submission can be seen at https://oscar.sca.org//index.php?action=145&id=89959.


    12: Feradach mac Tralin mec Domongairt -New Badge

    OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2012, via An Tir.

    (Fieldless) A serpent in annulo vorant of its own tail argent, overall two swords in saltire sable

    The submitter's branch is Glyn Dwfn.


    13: Glyn Dwfn, Shire of -New Device Change

    OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1982, via An Tir.

    Or chaussé vert, a pantheon azure semy of estoiles argent maintaining a laurel wreath vert

    Old Item: Vert, a helm affronty argent within a laurel wreath and on a chief triangular Or a harp azure, to be retained as a badge.

    The submitters included a petition in support of this change of shire device that includes the signatures of the Herald, Seneschal, Social Media Deputy, Scribe, Deputy Seneschal, A&S Minister, Archery Marshal, Heavy Marshal, Chatelaine, Chronicler and Webminister. It is dated in part 2/11/2019 and in part 2/27/2019.


    14: Kathren of Carnforth -New Name & New Device

    Per pale sable and Or, a phoenix between three crosses flory counterchanged

    Submitter desires a feminine name.
    No major changes.
    Spelling (as presented) most important.

    The submitter's branch is Glyn Dwfn.

    <Kathren> is a constructed spelling of English <Katherine>. The spelling <Kathrine> appears in DMNES, s.n. Katherine, dated to 1586 under the Early Modern English header (http://dmnes.org/name/Katherine). Dropping a terminal /e/ in English names is unremarkable; in this same section dated to 1530 we find Catheryn/Catheryne and Katheryn/Katheryne. The i/e switch is also unremarkable in English names; we find Katheren dated to 1545/6 in this same section. Therefore, we feel <Kathren> is a reasonable period spelling.

    <Carnforth> is a town in Lancashire, England. It appears in "The place-names of Lancashire" by Eilert Ekwall on p. 187. The spelling <Carneforde> is dated to 1356. As shown above, the terminal /e/ on each element can be removed without issue. On p. 162 of the same volume is the place name <Catforth> with dated spellings of <de Catford>, 1332, and <Catforthe>, 1514. We believe <Carnforth> to be a plausible period spelling of <Carneforde> given this evidence. https://archive.org/details/placenamesoflanc00ekwauoft/page/162, https://archive.org/details/placenamesoflanc00ekwauoft/page/187.

    OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2018, via An Tir.

    (Fieldless) A wren rising Or maintaining in its claws a palm branch vert

    The submitter's branch is Madrone.


    16: Nakkan Kanavati -New Name Change & New Device

    OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in October of 2008, via Artemisia as On?ra inghean Chormaic.

    Vert, an elephant proper charged with a lotus purpure, a bordure Or

    Old Item: Onora inghean Chormaic, to be retained as an alternate name.
    Submitter desires a feminine name.
    Sound most important.

    The submitter's branch is Tymberhavene.

    <Nakkan> is found in "Medieval Tamil Names" by Ursula Georges, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ursula/tamil/.

    <Kanavati> is found in Leslie Orr, Donors, Devotees, and Daughters of God: Temple Women in Medieval Tamilnadu, New York: Oxford University Press, 2000 on p. 111:

    [In] the third rank are Cuntara ... . nuktavalate ... . manikkam and her daughter Kanavati alias Kulottunkacoja-manikkam and Pollatapillai alias Tirunanacampanta-manikkam and Ciruval. . . . yarkoyil-manikkam
