Calontir ILoI dated 2018-03-26

Wesaþ hal!

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

1: Adalyde bint Yunus al-Zarqa' -Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Adalyde bint Yunus al-Zarqa' in May of 2015, via Calontir.

Gyronny of twelve azure and Or, a peacock in his pride argent and on a base sable a moon in her plenitude Or

Her previous Calontir submission, Gyronny of twelve azure and Or, a peacock in his pride argent was returned at kingdom for conflict with the device of Jumanah bint Nur al-Zarqa', Per bend Or and vert, a peacock in his pride argent. This addresses the conflict by adding the charged base.

2: Aidan Cocrinn -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1986, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A raven stooping to sinister vert

3: Alan Burellson -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2006, via Calontir.

Erminois, on a pile ployé azure a hanging balance Or

His previous submission, Azure chausse ploye erminois, a hanging balance Or was returned for conflict with the badge of Elena Anatolievna Pavlova, (Fieldless) A standing balance Or. This redesign clears the conflic by making a pile ployé the primary charge.

4: Deirdre inghean Aodha -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a thistle Or and a double tressure argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for 12th century Gaelic.

Deirdre - 12th century Gaelic name used once. "Concerning the Name Deirdre" by Josh Mittleman. https://medievalscotland.org/problem/names/deirdre.shtml

SCA precedent: August 2006, "is registerable as a normalized attested 12th C Gaelic name."

inghean- "daughter of"

Aodha - Early Modern Irish Gaelic genitive form of Áed, which is found in the years 578 through 1594. "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Áed / Aodh" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Aed.shtml

Submitter marked "No Major Changes" but requested authenticity for 12th century Gaelic.

Originally submitted as <Deirdre mac Aodha>, Deirdre is a feminine name, so the patronymic marker would be <inghean>. This is not adding or dropping a name element, nor is it changing the language, so correcting the marker is not a major change.

5: Emerick Jones -New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of August 30, 2017 as submitted.

Scarlet - surname used as the substantive element.
