Unto the Golden Wing and members of the College of Heralds, greetings. Please consider the following items:

1: Aife ingen Muiredaig -New Name & New Device

Per bend vert and argent, a dragonfly argent and a bat sable

2: Åsa Gunnarsdóttir -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Norse) most important.
Culture (12th-14th century Norway/Greenland/Iceland) most important.

Submitter requests help from the college with documentation because internet was not available at sight. Gunnar is her father's name and Aasa is her second great-grandmother's name. She is fine with Åsa or Aasa, whichever is more correct.

3: Cunueon Scriptor -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in March of 2018, via Artemisia.

Old Item: Cunueon Beornhelm, to be retained as an alternate name.
No major changes.
Sound (Cunueon) most important.

Both elements and the name structure are documented from Jones' "First Thousand Years of British Names" at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/british1000/british1000.html

The Given Name Cunueon appears in the list of Welsh masculine given names from the Book of Llandav in Appendex V of this work at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/british1000/appendix4_5.html Everywhere else in the articles Jones indicates that the documents from which the names are derived date from the sixth to tenth century.

Scriptor appears as an attested byname in Appendix IV of the article which deals with the name patterns that appear in the Book of of Llandav at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/british1000/appendix4_5.html This name follows the pattern of a single given name and single occupational byname as evidenced in the name of Dissaith scriptor.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

The name "Ilaria" is an Italian form of hilary meaning cheerful. It shows up in Italy from 1300 until present day. There is an "Ilaria" born in 1480 and 1582.

The surname "de Medici" is present in Italy from 1230 until 1843 as a female last name. First listed in a document in 1230, the name belongs to a wealthy banking family. I have not found the names used together in period records, but both are used during the same time.
