Calontir ILoI dated 2017-04-30

¡Buenas!

To Saito Takauji, Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Shandra, Saker.

This constitutes my final ILoI as Saker Herald. I wanted to publicly thank the Calontir College of Heralds for all their support during my tenure, and want to assure the College that I leave the office in the most capable hands of HL Gotfrid von Schwaben who will be coordinating External Submissions, and M. Dorcas Whitecap who will be overseeing Internal Submissions. Thank you.

As always, I am yours in service to the Crown and Heralds of Calontir,

~Alexandra Vazquez de Granada, called Shandra, Saker Emerita.

We seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration:

1: Axed Root, Canton of -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1985, via Calontir.

Gules, on a bend azure fimbriated a double-bitted poleaxe bendwise and in canton sinister a laurel wreath Or.

Old Item: Or, a double-bitted poleaxe sable between two boars' heads couped respectant gules all within a laurel wreath vert., to be retained as a badge.

The group would like to keep their old device as Ancient Arms. A petition consisting of signatures from the officers an populace members was included with this submission.

The Or is clearly yellow on the form, any darkening is an artifact of scanning.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2014, via Calontir.

4: Gaius Glavius Primus Auxilius -New Name & New Device

Or, a gurges sable, a bordure and overall a gemstone gules

All names found in "A Simple Guide to Imperial Roman Names" by Ursula Georges http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#cognomen

Giaus - praenomen

Flavius - nomen

Primus - cognomen

Submitter currently goes by the cognomen Auxilius, which we have been unable to document. Any help with this name element would be welcome. If Auxilius can be documented, submitter would prefer to drop the cognomen Primus.

Correction to Name (2017-May-01 18:05:14): There's a typo in the submitted name. Submitter wants to register the nomen Flavius, not Glavius.


5: Gisele de la Fontaine -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of March 31, 2017 as submitted.

(FIeldless) A spider argent maintaining a fountain


6: Hafr-Þórólfr -New Name

Language (Old Norse) most important.
Culture (Old Norse) most important.

Hafr- prepended byname meaning "billygoat" found in GB p. 22

Þórólfr - masculine given name found in GB p. 16


7: Halfgrímr hafreki -New Name & New Device

Or, a peacock close contourny tail elevated sable

Culture (Old Norse or Icelandic) most important.
Meaning ("storm tossed" or "shipwreaked") most important.

Halfgrímr - constructed given name, per SENA PN.1.B.2.b. The first element from <Hálfburinn> (Nordisk Runnamnslexikon), <Hálfdanr>, <Hálfgeirr> (both from Geirr Bassi), with <-grímr> being a common name element, see <Ásgrímr>, <Eldgrímr>, <Elliðagrímr>, <Hafgrímr> etc. (all from Geirr Bassi).

hafreki - descriptive byname based on Cleasby and Vigfusson sv. haf-reka, adj. indecl. "sea-wrecked, tossed about", Ann. 1347.

Cleasby and Vigfusson sv. Haf-rekr haf-rekr, m. sea-drifted. Heine havreki or Heine the sea-drifted is the name of the hero of a Faroe legend, told by Schlyter in Antiqu. Tidskrift, 1849-1851. The legend makes him the father of the arch-pirate Magnus Heineson, a historical person, whose exploits are told in Debes' book; this Magnus, we may presume, served as a model to Scott's Pirate (that Scott knew of Debes is scon from note K to the Pirate). The Faroe legend bears a striking likeness to the Anglo-Norman Haveloc the Dane; both name and story may have a common origin, `Haveloc' being a corrupted French form, with 'r' changed into 'l' for the sake of euphony,


8: Kedivor ap Gwilym -Resub Name & New Device

Purpure, a pile vert fimbriated argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Submitter's previous name Kedivor Offeriot returned by Laurel on Jan 2017 LoAR for presumption. http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/01/17-01lar.html#Calontir_returns8

This name must be returned because the byname Offeriot, meaning an ordained priest, is presumptuous. [Selewine sacerdos Guytherin, 10/2009 LoAR, A-An Tir] Bynames referring to ordination or its equivalent imply powers and thus are not registerable. Religious bynames that do not imply ordination, however, are registerable. [Cadan Sacart, 8/2012 LoAR, A-Caid]

Kedivor - male given name, s.v. Cydifor, dated to 1292-3, with at least 5 examples found in Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn located at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welsh13.html

ap - Welsh patronymic marker meaning son of

Gwilym - male given name, header entry, found in Snapshot of a Cantref: The Names and Naming Practices in a Mawddwy Court Roll of 1415-16 by Heather Rose Jones located at http://www.heatherrosejones.com/names/welsh/mawddwy1415.html

Submitter's original device, Vert, a chausse purpure was returned at kingdom for color on color issues, per SENA A.3.B.3.d. This redesign will be new to Laurel.


9: Mag Mor, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

Award of the Anchor

Award: designator listed in SENA appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE

of the: articles linking the designator and substantive element

meta pattern charge: follows the pattern of charge listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/ListingOfStandardForms.html#AllCharge

Anchor as charge: The pic dic dates an anchor used as a charge to c1410. http://mistholme.com/?s=anchor

Anchor as period word: The OED s.v. 1. anchor, n.1 (where the 1 is a superscript) dates anchors in that spelling to 1591 and ancor to c880, ancris to c1382. It also dates other spellings to OE and ME.

Note: The barony would prefer to have this translated to Gaelic. Unfortunately, I can't document the meta-pattern to that language. If someone could help us get <Gaelic for award of the> Ancaire, that would be fabulous.


10: Mag Mor, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

Award of the Aurochs of Mag Mor

Award: designator listed in SENA appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE

of the: articles linking the designator and substantive element

meta pattern charge: follows the pattern of charge listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/ListingOfStandardForms.html#AllSecularOrders

Aurochs: The OED s.v. aurochs n says that aurochs comes from Old Germanic and other languages. "Etymology:  < German aurochs, obsolete form of auerochse < Middle High German ûr-ochse, Old High German ûr-ohso, < ûr = Old English úr, Old Norse úrr, Old Germanic *ûrus, the Urus, + German ochs, Middle High German ochse, Old High German ohso, ox. The Latin ūrus and Greek οὖρος were adopted from the Old Germanic word, of which the derivation is uncertain.(Show Less)" I hope this is enough to ask for the lingua anglica allowance to get aurochs in Modern English.

Aurochs as charge: The pic dic dates the bull to at least 1370 http://mistholme.com/?s=bull. As a bull is an ox (or perhaps vice versa), and since ox came from aurochs, I hope this is enough to claim that aurochs is a charge.

of Mag Mor: This was added to clear conflict with Aurochs Pursuivant, which was registered to East, Kingdom of the in May of 1981 (via Laurel) and transferred to Drachenwald, Kingdom of in May of 1996 (via Drachenwald). This heraldic title was registered to Drachenwald, Kingdom of in May of 1996 (via Drachenwald).

Mag Mor registration: This branch name, registered in October of 1982 (via the Middle), was updated to Mag Mor, Barony of in July of 2001 (via Calontir). Note: The Barony would prefer the Award of the Ancient Aurochs. Unfortunately, I cannot document a time+charge meta pattern. If anyone can help with this, I would appreciate it.


11: Mag Mor, Barony of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

Order of the Heart of Mag Mor

Order: designator listed in SENA appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE

of: articles linking the designator and substantive element

meta pattern: charge, follows the pattern of orders being named after heraldic charges listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/

Heart as charge: Parker's Dictionary of Heraldry s.v. heart, dates the heart as a charge to 1259.

Heart used in period: The OED s.v. heart, n., inf., adv. A. n. I.1.a. (where the "n" is in italics) dates heorte to a1225 and heart to a1616. The meaning given is, " (a) The hollow muscular organ which performs the function of a pump in the circulatory system, receiving blood from the veins and contracting to propel it into the arteries."

of <group name>: This was added for conflict purposes after reading SENA NPN 3.c. The O&A says, "This branch name, registered in October of 1982 (via the Middle), was updated to Mag Mor, Barony of in July of 2001 (via Calontir)." http://oanda.sca.org/oanda_name.cgi?p=Mag%20Mor%2c%20Barony%20of


12: Mag Mor, Barony of -New Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

Order of Gwyneth's Harp

Order: designator listed in SENA appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE

of: article linking the designator and substantive element

meta pattern Saint's name+other: follows the pattern of orders being named after Saint's name plus other listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/ListingOfStandardForms.html#AllSecularOrders

Harp: The OED n.1 (this 1 is a superscript) 1.a dates harp in this spelling to 1382

Gwyneth's name registration: Gwyneth Espicier This name was registered in December of 1988 (via Calontir)

Precedent: http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2005/08/05-08cl.html allows orders to be named after secular founders. This order is named after Gwyneth Espicier, the first member of the order and a harp.

Possessive form: Lingua anglica allowance

Precedent: http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/03/09-03lar.html The acceptance of the Award of Arielle saya in part, "Given the positive commentary, we are hereby changing RfS II.5 to allow branches to use the grandfather clause for elements which are part of the registered names of citizens of their branches. We are soliciting the College's commentary on the precise wording of the rules change; for more information, see the Cover Letter. However, because the precise details of the wording will not affect the registerability of the current submission, we are able to register this award name at this time."

Correction to Heraldic Title (2017-May-02 18:05:42): Submission input as as Heraldic Title, but should be New Order Name. Should it pass internal commentary, adjustments will be made during transfer to ELoI.


13: Teodric Ó Dubhghaill -New Name & New Device

Quarterly Or and azure, in bend two Tau crosses purpure

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Teodric - Old English masculine given name, c. 1086, Withycombe s.n. Theodoric, p. 278

Ó Dubhghaill - clan affiliation byname, based on Early Modern Irish Gaelic "Dubhghall", genitive form "Dubhghaill", dated to 1268 in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Dubgall / Dubhghall" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Dubgall.shtml Paper copy included

http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname Paper copy included.

The given name and byname are less than 300 years apart.

Correction to Name (2017-Apr-30 22:04:33): Submitted desires a masculine name.


14: Úlfr Þorgrimsson -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2016, via Calontir.

Gyronny arroundi argent and azure, a double tressure sable

The original submission was returned on the 12-2016 LoAR:

Gyronny arrondi argent and azure, a bordure sable.

This device is returned administratively. There was no mention on the Letter of Intent that the device had been redrawn after kingdom commentary, nor whether the submitter had approved the redraw.

This device is also returned for conflict with the device of Tómas Tryggvason: Gyronny arrondy of six azure and argent, on a bordure sable three plates. SENA A5G1d explicitly states that we do not give a DC for the difference between gyronny of six and gyronny of eight; thus the only DC is for the removal of the tertiary plates.

We believe this redraw (done with the submitter's permission) clears the conflict.


Commentary is due by 21 May 2017 either in OSCAR or via email to <eyas@calontir.org>. The online commentary meeting will be 22 May 2017, and will be moderated by Dorcas Eyas. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Mil gracias,
