16: Miakushka Loshkina -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2015, via Calontir.

Argent, an octaskelion of spirals arrondi purpure within a bordure gules

Previous device submission, Argent, a polypus facing to dexter purpure within a bordure gules, was returned on the September 2015 LoAR.

This device is returned for redraw for having some the polypus' tentacles extending above its head. Please see the May 2015 Cover Letter for information about a correct depiction.

This is a complete redesign.

This would be the defining instance of an octaskelion, and we expect it would be considered a Step From Period Practice.


17: Moire inghean Néill -New Device Change

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Moire inghean N?ill in December of 2012, via Calontir.

Per bend sinister argent and azure, a mullet of eight points counterchanged and on a chief azure a naalbinding needle fesswise argent

Old Item: Azure, a phoenix and on a chief Or three mullets of eight points azure, to be retained as a badge.

This might be the defining instance of a naalbinding needle. This is specifically a naalbinding needle because it is blunt and curved. Like a knitting needle, a naalbinding needle doesn't have to be very sharp because it only needs to draw yarn between the strands of previously worked yarn. Naalbinding needles are most often made of bone and antler, which tends to become curved through use.

The first image is of bone needles from Birka. https://io.ua/13507705p

The second image is of a bone or antler needle in the collection of The Swedish History Museum. https://www.flickr.com/photos/historiska/6909498847/?ytcheck=1&new_session=1

The third image is of bone needles from Truso, which I believe is in the area of Poland formerly called Prussia. http://prusowie.pl/historia/wykopaliska_a_kultura_prusow.php

18: Otto of Foxhall -Resub Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in September of 2004, via Calontir as Otto Augustin von W?rttemberg.

Old Item: Otto Augustin von Württemberg, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling (of Foxhall) most important.

This is a resub at kingdom. His previous name change, Yusuf al-Rashid, on the Calontir ILoI dated 2018-09-22, was withdrawn. This will be a new name change if/when it reaches Laurel level.

Otto - English masculine given name found in FamilySearch.org: Otto Caunter, male, Christening date 05 Apr 1539, KILKHAMPTON, CORNWALL, ENGLAND, batch P00717-1 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWXL-RJ4

of Foxhall - Dictionary of Tudor London Names by Aryanhwy merch Catmael, p. 152., s.n. Foxall. (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/tudorlondon.pdf)


19: Pádraig Ó hEisleanáin -New Name & New Device

Argent, a pall azure cotised vert

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (Irish) most important.

Pádraig - Early Modern Irish Gaelic masculine given name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Pádraig" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Padraig.shtml

20: Salma bint Maryam al-Sū' -New Name & New Device

Salma bint Maryam al-Sū'

Vert, two chevronels argent between three owls Or

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Salma - feminine ism found in "PERIOD ARABIC NAMES AND NAMING PRACTICES" by Da'ud ibn Auda (David B. Appleton) https://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm

bint Maryam - matronymic byname meaning 'daughter of Maryam' based on the feminine ism Maryam, ibid

al-Sū' - descriptive byname meaning 'full of vice' found in "Arabic Names from al-Andalus: Feminine Bynames Found in al-Andalus (nisba and laqab)" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/alandalus/femnick.html

The article "Arabic Names from al-Andalus: Family Names Based on Female Names from al-Andalus" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/alandalus/femfam.html) gives examples of matronymic bynames. While they are all sons of their mothers, we believe this is enough to support the pattern of a daughter being known by a matronymic byname.
