4: Fionna nic Alisdair -New Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1983, via the Middle.

Or, semy of hearts, a snail contourny gules, and for augmentation, on a canton purpure a cross of Calatrava Or

Augmentation of Arms granted 7/14/2018 in Calontir.

This augmentation uses the ensign of Calontir, registered April 1984: Purpure, a cross of Calatrava Or.

Submitter's current device, registered April of 1986, is: Or, semy of hearts, a snail contourny gules.


5: Franco Suares -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of February 06, 2018 as submitted.

Argent, on a pile azure a winged sword inverted, pommelled of a pomegranate, Or winged argent

The submitter's original device, Azure chausse argent, a winged sword inverted, pommelled of a pomegranate, Or, was originally submitted on the Calontir ILoI dated 2017-12-25, and was returned at kingdom for conflict with Fearghus Cochrane, badge registered in July of 2012 (via Caid): (Fieldless) A sword inverted, winged Or. This redesign changed the primary charge from a sword to a pile.

Submitter's second attempt was returned for conflict with previously registered device of Richard FitzGilbert, (Aug 1981, Atlantia): Argent, on a pile throughout azure a sun Or
There is one DC for type of tertiary, however, SENA A.5.D.1 states:

Visually Equivalent Blazons: The use of different terminology to describe two designs that are visually similar does not affect any potential for conflict that may exist. ... Two charges can also be overly visually similar, though period depictions of charges that were considered different in period will generally be considered to be different (at least a distinct change (DC) apart).

There is insufficient difference between a pile and a pile throughout for a second DC. This redesign changes the tincture of the wings to argent.


6: Gawayne ap Tristam -New Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1988, via Calontir.

Vairy gules and Or, a dragon segreant to sinister sable, and for augmentation the dragon maintaining an escutcheon purpure charged with a cross of Calatrava within a bordure Or

Augmentation of Arms granted 6/15/2018 in Calontir.

This augmentation uses Calontir's standard augmentation, registered February 2008: Purpure, a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or.

Submitter's current device, registered November of 1988, is: Vairy gules and Or, a dragon segreant to sinister sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Old Norse) most important.

Bull's Eye of Mag Mor, Award of the

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 Saint's name+other: follows the pattern of Saint's name+other listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/

Bull as name: R&W sn Bull (and others) date Robert Boole, Bull to 1524. This should be late enough to use the surname as given name allowance.

Spelling "Bull's" is a lingua Anglica form.

Eye as charge: The pic dic sv eye [ http://mistholme.com/?s=eye ] says, "It was used as an heraldic charge in the arms of di Belugi, mid-15th C. [Triv 80], and in the badge of Blount, c.1520 [HB 79]."

Eye as word: The OED sv 1. eye n. <super>1 dates ien to a1529. We appeal to the Lingua Anglica allowance to get "eye"

Precedent for given name instead of Saint's name: The 5/11 LoAR http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2011/05/11-05lar.html Lochac, Kingdom of. Order name Order of Taillefer says "A given name can be used to create an order name (one named after a founder or inspiration)." While there is nobody in Mag Mor with that name, there could be. Thus, we wish to use this name as inspiration for the order name.

of Mag Mor added for conflict purposes. Group name registration: The O&A s.n. Mag Mor, Barony of states "Mag Mor, Shire of This branch name, registered in October of 1982 (via the Middle), was updated to Mag Mor, Barony of in July of 2001 (via Calontir)."

Calf as charge: The pic dic sv bull http://mistholme.com/?s=bull says "...and the "calf", the young bovine, drawn without horns (as in the canting arms of Vele, 1275 [ANA2 166])"

11: Mag Mor, Barony of -New Order Name

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

Cattle's Ring, Order of

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 names (or by precedent given names)+other listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) at http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/ListingOfStandardForms.shtml#AllSaintOther Here, "other" is a heraldic charge like a shield

Cattle as given name: R&W sn Cattel (and other spellings) dates Cattle Bagge to 1279. http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2011/05/11-05lar.html Lochac, Kingdom of. Order name Order of Taillefer says "A given name can be used to create an order name (one named after a founder or inspiration)." While there is nobody in Mag Mor with that name, there could be. Thus, we wish to use this name as inspiration for the order name.

Ring as charge and as word: The pic dic sv ring http://mistholme.com/?s=ring lists a gemmed ring as a period charge dated to 1450 "found in the arms of von Enzberg, c.1450 [Ingeram 104; also Siebmacher 110". The same source says listing it as a gemmed ring distinguishes it from an annulet. The OED sv ring n <super>1 dates ring in that spelling to c1225.

We appeal to the Lingua Anglica allowance to get the apostrophe s. If that is not possible, we will accept Cattles instead. Please see LoAR of March 2016, which says, "Mag Mor, Barony of. Order name Order of the Bull's Horn. ... Bull's Horn is a lingua Anglica form."


12: Mag Mor, Barony of -New Order Name

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

Spirit of Mag Mor, Order of

meta pattern Saint's name: Follows the pattern Saint's name found in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/Courtly_Orders_and_Awards.shtml#Holy%20Spirit%20(France). This gives documentation for Milites Sancti Spiritus, translated as Knights of the Holy Spirit and is explicitly stated not to be a chivalric order.

Order is a designator listed in SENA appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE and "of" is a linking word.

Precedent possibly allowing removal of "Saint" from a Saint's name: The precedent found at http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/10/13-10lar.html Outlands acceptances, s.n. Outlands, Kingdom of the Order of Ragnar's Hammer uses Saint's name + object to document the order name and says nothing about the word "saint" having been dropped. Additionally the Vulgate (http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/poly/gal005.htm ) says in Galatians 5:22 "Fructus autem Spiritus est caritas, gaudium, pax, patientia, benignitas, bonitas, longanimitas" which is translated in the KJV (ibid) as " But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith," Since Paul drops the "Holy" from "Holy Spirit" here, I argue that we should be allowed to do the same. Finally, removing "Holy" from the name makes it more comfortable for those who are not Christian.

of Mag Mor added for conflict purposes

Group name registration: The O&A s.n. Mag Mor, Barony of states "Mag Mor, Shire of 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: We would prefer Espiritu Mag Mor but I cannot document it. If anyone can help with documentation for that form, I would appreciate it.
