Calontir Kingdom ILoI dated 2017-01-06


To Saito Takauji, Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Shandra, Saker. We seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration:

1: Acelin Macrae -New Name

Sound (given name sounds like) most important.
Spelling (surname spelling Macrae) most important.

Acelin - masculine given name found in Withycombe, "English Christian Names", 3rd ed. pg. 2, a diminutive of Old French {Asce}, dated in this spelling to 1273.

Macrae - surname. Black s.n. Macrae has <McRay> from 1476 and <Mackcrae> dated to 1650

<James Macray of Pardowis> appears in a Scots language document dated 19 May 1584 in the "Records of the Parliaments of Scotland to 1707" http://www.rps.ac.uk/

"Publications of the Scottish History Society" (T. and A. Constable, 1917) at p. 639 has an excerpt of a Scots language document dated to 1646 containing the name <Robert Mackrae>. http://books.google.com/books?id=wAEdAAAAMAAJ

The February 2002 registratioin of Evelyn Macrae (A-Outlands) states:

No evidence was found that Macrae is a plausible spelling before 1600. Black (s.n. Macrae) dates numerous other spellings to period, but none have 'ae' in the second syllable. However, since Mackcrae is dated to 1650 (just at the end of the "gray area") in this entry, the submitted spelling is registerable. Since the submitter had no request for authenticity, we have not changed the spelling of Macrae to a period spelling.

2: Aileth Semere -New Name & New Device

Argent, on a fess wavy between three Lacy knots purpure an oriental dragon passant argent.

Language (English or Anglo-Saxon) most important.
Culture (English or Anglo-Saxon) most important.

Aileth - English given name dated to 1198 in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Talan Gwynek http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html

Semere - English surname found in "A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Reaney and Wlson, s.n. Seamer, p. 398, John Semere dated to 1327

3: Andromir Vukovic -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling (Vukovic or Vuković, NOT Vukovich) most important.

Andromir - constructed Slavic given name

Andro - prototheme found in several names, including Andro-gast, Andro-n, and Andro-nik, in "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names" by Paul Wickenden of Thanet. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul

-mir - deuterotheme also found in Wickenden (ibid), including examples "adi-mir, Predi-mir, and Zvoni-mir.

Vukovic - Patronymic byname of Vlatko Vukovic (d.1392), first ruler of Hum/Hercegvina (Kosaca family). Defeated the Turks at the Battle of Bileca, 27 August 1388. http://mokrolive.info/zaboravljeni-grob-vlatka-vukovica/ Paper copy and translated paper copy provided.

Vuk - found in Wickenden (op. cit.) "Vuk (m) - Vuk. 1419. [Mor 51]" The source of this name is listed as Moroshkin, Mikhail. Slavianskii imenoslov ili sobranie slavianskikh lichnykh imen. Saint Petersburg: n.p., 1867.

We believe <Vuk> is Croatian, rather than Russian, therefore the Croation patronymic ending ending is appropriate.

"Early Croatian Given Names" by Walraven van Nijmegen states, "Those few individuals recorded with a byname have a patronymic, formed from the father's name. These may be simply the father's name unmodified, or a constrction formed by adding -ov or -ovic." https://s-gabriel.org/names/walraven/croat/
