Calontir ILoI dated 2018-12-28

Wesaþ hal!

To Brigida von München, Gold Falcon, and to 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 Heloyz la Cantora -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in May of 2015, via Calontir.

Old Item: Adalyde bint Yunus al-Zarqa', to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.
Meaning (the singer) most important.

Adalyde - feminine given name, "Catalan Names in Latin Contexts: the late 12th century" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) includes Adalyde de Perpiniano. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/catalan12.htm Adalyde is also part of the submitter's currently registered name.

Heloyz - Old French given name, dated 1313 in DMNES, s.n. Eloise (http://dmnes.org/name/Eloise) which cites J.-A. Buchon, editor. "Chronique Métrique de Godefroy de Paris, suivie de la Taille de Paris, en 1313, volume IX of Collection des Chroniques Nationales Françaises". Paris: Hippolyte Tilliard, 1827.

la Cantora - occupational byname, "la Cantor" appears in Diez Melcon p 259 s.n. Cantor "Maria la Cantor" (1234). The submitter prefers the feminine spelling. "Cantora" is found in CORDE, dated 1227, "cantora Maria Garciaz", so the spelling is correct for this name.

20: Sancha Lestrange -New Blazon Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2011, via Calontir.

Per pale gules and sable, two bat-winged snails volant respectant, wings erect and addorsed, and a fleur-de-lys all Or

Sancha Lestrange The following device associated with this name was registered in December of 1985 (via Atenveldt): Per pale gules and sable, two bat-winged snails respectant, wings erect and addorsed, in base a fleur-de-lys all Or.

Saerlaith l'Estrangere This name, registered in March of 1987 (via the Outlands), was changed to Sancha Lestrange in June of 2011 (via Calontir). (just in case you need to know this)

An inaccurate emblazon was produced based on the blazon in the OandA. She would like a more accurate blazon. The artwork from her original device form has been provided by Shauna Archivist, and is attached. On the Outlands College of Heralds' Roll of Arms, the emblazon has the respectant snails passant, when they should be "chevron-wise". The image is attached, but you may also see it here: http://wharrow.outlandsheralds.org/individual_record.php?PersonID=2292&Letter=s

The owner of the registered arms states,

My original submitted blazon of the snails as 'combatant' was declined on the grounds that 'only things with teeth can be combatant'. (I was White Stag Principality Herald at the time, and a member of the Aten commenting group. I pouted a bit, but accepted the rationale.) I was happy enough with the blazon as registered until I encountered the Wimble office's redrawing, and realized that it was subject to misinterpretation.

I believe the difficulty arises when one considers that 'respectant' is usually depicted as 'passant respectant' by default, unlike the angled body posture which 'combatant' was intended to convey. I postulate instead that 'volant respectant' might appropriately address the body posture. 'Volant' is generally depicted with the near wing below the body line, but retaining present descriptor 'erect and addorsed' seems sufficient to correct it.

Thus: Per pale gules and sable, two bat-winged snails volant respectant, wings erect and addorsed, and a fleur-de-lys all Or.

Other possible blazons: Per pale gules and sable, two bat-winged snails erect respectant, wings erect and addorsed, and a fleur-de-lys all Or and Per pale gules and sable, a bat-winged snail bendwise sinister and a bat-winged snail bendwise, wings erect and addorsed, and a fleur-de-lys all Or

This device is already registered, so there can be no unity of posture issue.

21: Skinna-Hrefna -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of April 08, 2018 as submitted.

Quarterly argent and gules, a raven sable upon a man's head erased proper


22: Umm Turāb Zulaykha -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Zulaykha) most important.

Umm Turāb - kunya meaning "mother of dust". Based on ism Turāb found in "Isms from ibn Munqidh" by Basil Dragonstrike https://s-gabriel.org/names/basil/ibnmunqidh/Isms.html Hard copy included.

Correspondence with Master Basil confirms that Turāb was found in the name Abū Turāb Ḥaydarah ibn Qaṭrmatar. Thus, Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (the son-in-law of The Prophet) is not the only person known as Abū Turāb.

Zulaykha - plausible alternative transliteration of Zulaikha, feminine ism found in "PERIOD ARABIC NAMES AND NAMING PRACTICES" by Da'ud ibn Auda https://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm Names that appear with alternative transliterations include Zaynab (Zainab), Zubaydah (Zubaidah), Sulayman (Sulaiman), Maryam (Mariam), Maymuna (Maimuna).
