Teceangl Bach (Ounce) at 2009-05-11 11:13:59

Academy of Saint Gabriel report 2166 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2166+0) lists Sören:

The modern Danish name <So|ren> ultimately derives from the name of St. Severinus. <So|ren> is found in Denmark from c.1400 on. We find it spelled as <So|ren> in 1403-1540, though the spellings <Sewryn> and <Sewren> were more typical for that period [1]. The symbol <o|> represents the Danish slashed <o>.

Also Academy report 1952 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?1952+0) says the same thing. Boilerplate. The reference from report 1952 is best:

[1] Knudsen Gunnar, Marius Kristiansen, & Rikard Hornby, _Danmarks Gamle Personnavne_, Vol. I: Fornavne (Copenhagen: 1936-48). s.n. Severin

Alisoun MacCoul of Elphane (Metron Ariston) at 2009-05-13 23:20:53

The commentary in the acceptance of Birgitta Sørensdatter in May, 2001, would appear to support at least the spelling Søren in period: "Submitted as Birgiða Skálphæna Sorensdottir, there was an unfortunate flaw in the documentation of the patronymic. Soren was documented to 1263 from Danmarks gamle personnavne, but the entry -- written in Danish -- notes that Severinus does not appear in the form Søren this early and that this instance is either a modernisation of an older form or a misreading of Swen. The form Søren does not appear before the 15th century, so we had to change the patronymic suffix to match that time period." One could infer from this that Danmarks gamle personnavne does in fact support Søren from the fifteenth century. (I cannot verify this as my copy only goes through the letter K!)

--------------

Originally submitted as Arnórr Sørensen on the Calontir Calon ILoI dated 2013-02-08, it was returned at Kingdom level. Orle pointed out: "There's about three centuries, two languages, and a locational gap between Old West Norse <Arnórr> and Old Swedish <Sørensen>.

The underlying given name is a combination or <Arn-> "eagle", and <-þórr> "Thor". Checking SMP s.n. <A(r)ndor>, it appears that in Swedish the medial consonant did not disappear, resulting in the name-form <Andor>. <Andor Sørensen> would be a fine combination for 15th-16th c. Sweden.

Checking E.H. Lind s.v. <Severin>, the earliest dates for it are 15th c. and the West Norse never goes to a form like <Søren>. Looking s.v. <Arnórr>, this specific name form is Icelandic, Lind says the Norwegian form is <Andor>." Action located at http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=1805

Originally submitted as Per pale gules and sable, a valknut argent within a torc Or., this was returned at the Kingdom level for being two steps from period practice: one for the vulknut, and one for the framing.
