Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2016-12-16

Greetings unto all and sundry! This is Æ 189, the first post-Pennsic letter. Much thanks to all the heralds whose hard work made this possible. The meeting for this letter will be Monday night, 16 Jan 2017, at 8pm Eastern time. We hope you will join us via Google Hangouts.

1: Angelo da Calabria -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of December 05, 2016 as submitted.

Sable, a herald's staff Or, a chief enarched argent, and a ford proper

Herald of Record: Cormac Mor

See PicDic 3rd Edition for staff artwork.

Blazon from commentary.

Original device form was matched to submitter by personal details.

Black-and-white of the device has been redrawn owing to a lack of black-and-white form. We have discussed this device previously; I cannot let it go forward in good conscience without you seeing emblazons, since we register those rather than blazons. Submitter does approve redrawn emblazon, very warmly.


2: Cynwulf Rendell -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1997, via Æthelmearc.

(Fieldless) On a roundel azure a sun Or, a heron volant sable

This submission is to be associated with Cynwulf Rendell and Eleanore Godwin

Herald of Record: Eleanore Godwin

Form omits date submitted; form is postmarked 14 Dec 2016.


3: Eleanore Godwin -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1997, via Æthelmearc.

(Fieldless) A wyvern gules maintaining a rose Or seeded and leaved vert

Herald of Record: Eleanore Godwin

Form omits date submitted; form postmarked 14 Dec 2016.


4: Elen Woderose -New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2014, via Æthelmearc.

Drauma-Ellisif

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
No major changes.

Heralds of Record: E. Woderose/F. Tomasson

Drauma- is a prepended byname found on page 20 of Geirr Bassi Haraldsson's The Old Norse Name.

Ellisif is an Old Norse feminine given name found on page 9 of the same source.

SENA Appendix A acknowledges this name structure: "For Old Norse/Old Icelandic, by precedent, prepended bynames (nicknames that precede the given name) are capitalized . . ." (s.n. Scandinavian) Therefore no further documentation should be necessary.


5: Eydís Vígdísardóttir -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2016, via Æthelmearc.

Azure, a chief embowed ermine, a martlet displayed argent

Herald of Record: Aindreas MacGhille

Name on form is not actual registered name.

The previous submission, Purpure, a sexfoil argent, was returned for multiple conflicts. This submission is a complete redesign.


6: Istor of Beaver Nob -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of December 05, 2016 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A beaver statant erect affronty, maintaining in his dexter forepaw a spear, wearing an open faced leather helm proper and maintaining on his chest in sinister forepaw a drinking horn argent.

Herald of Record: Michael Langley

There is no helm attached to this item. It is a helm which was placed in front of an artist at Herald's Point. Said artist was as faithful to the helm as possible.

Item pended from Æ ILoI 187 for evaluation of artwork. NB that the artwork in question was, in fact, exactly the same as the artwork on the device (difference in field only); b/w emblazon included in images below, for comparison.

Having never received the color version of the badge form, we have whipped one up from the color version of the device form, with the submitter's blessing as of 12 Dec 2016.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:

7: Romey Feurhertts -Resub Name

No changes.
Sound (none given) most important.

Herald of Record: none given

Client's previous submission, Romy Feuerherdt, was returned for further work at Kingdom on Æ 184. This form is marked Resub-Laurel; it should be Resub-Kingdom. We apologise for the confusion.

Romey is a German male given name, found on IGI as Romey Vischer, male, died 10 Jun 1589 at Merklingen, Württemburg, Germany (B02371-7, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWL7-868).

Feurhertts is a German byname, found on IGI as Michell Feurhertts, male, christened May 1607 at Konigsberg in Neumark, Brandenburg, Prussia (C99873-1, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NFMH-GJC).

<given> + <byname> needs no further documentation in German, per SENA Appendix A.


8: Saiman Tokushou -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of November 30, 2016 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A Japanese lightning bolt sable

This submission is to be associated with Saiman Tokushou

Herald of Record: Saiman Tokushou

Name not actually registered yet; name in progress, previously submitted from the Kingdom of Æthelmearc.

Correction to Badge (2017-Jan-14 12:01:20): Saiman is withdrawing the submission and sending up with new documentation.


9: Simonetta d'Alfassi -New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Simonetta d'Alfassi in May of 1987, via the East.

Argent, a coney rampant contourny proper maintaining a drawn longbow and arrow, a chief invected azure

Herald of Record: Eleanore Godwin

Form omits date submitted; form was postmarked 14 Dec 2016.


10: Sólveig Þróndardóttir -New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Solveig Throndardottir in November of 1990, via the East.

(Fieldless) An umebachi argent.

This submission is to be associated with Sugawara Miyuki

Herald of Record: submitter

Solveig's name change is on the Internal Letter of Intent Æ 186.

This is an IAP for an umebachi as a single charge. An umebachi is a marsh grass, and appears to be a small roundel between five large roundels.

Per documentation: According to Daijirin third edition published by Sanseido sn umebachi, the umebachi is a depiction of a Japanese apricot blossom. The "ume" (Japanese apricot) is commonly mistranslated as "plum". This charge has been in use since the Heian period. There are several variations. Most versions are not connected, but there are depictions which are connected.

Images for this IAP are included both here and in the packet.

The examples from O-umajirushi depict Maeda's connected umebachi argent on a plain azure field and Matsudaira's disconnected umebachi sable on a bend argent.

The examples from Daibukan vol. 1 depict three examples of disconnected umebachi, all appearing tinctureless.

The examples from the 1470 Kenmon Shokamon depict umebachi with and without something encircling the center of the umebachi, both appearing tinctureless.

Any further aid members of the Society can provide is, of course, always welcome.

11: Tamara thugater Sarakou -New Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Gules, a ram's head cabossed Or within an orle of bezants

Old Item: Claudia Prisca, to be released.
Old Item: Per bend sinister wavy argent and vert, an anchor sable and a dolphin embowed-counter-embowed argent finned Or, to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for Greek/Scytho-Sarmatian.
Language (Greek/Scytho-Sarmatian) most important.
Culture (Greek/Scytho-Sarmatian) most important.

Herald of Record: submitter

Tamura is a Greek feminine given name presented in Ursula Georges' "Greek Names with Scytho-Sarmatian Roots" (http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/iranianroots.html) s.n. Feminine.

Sarakos is a Greek masculine given name presented in Ursula Georges' "Greek Names with Scytho-Sarmatian Roots" (http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/iranianroots.html) s.n. Masculine. This name may be rendered into the genitive Sarakou by changing the -os ending to -ou, per the same article (introductory matter).

The same article gives us the use of thugater to denote a father-daughter relationship; the whole form would therefore be <given> + <[thugater] + [father's name in the genitive]>.

Per SENA PN.2.D. Names Not Recorded in a Latin Script, as long as we are consistently dropping diacritical marks, we may choose to drop them: "This includes the use (or lack) of accents in a name - their usage should be consistent." This name consistently drops them.

Correction to Name (2016-Dec-19 09:12:25): New Name Change should be for Tamura thugater Sarakou, not Tamara.

12: Thalia Papillon -New Name & New Device

Per pale Or and argent, a butterfly and on a chief azure three comedy masks per pale argent and Or

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (last name) most important.

Herald of Record: Etienne Sea Stag

"Date submitted" not filled in; envelope postmarked 14 Dec 2016.

Thalia is an English feminine given name found on IGI, thus:

Thalia Smith, female, christened 25 Mar 1609 at Pillerton Priors, Warwick, England (C04376-2, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NGYT-CZG)

la Papellone was submitted as a French byname, taken from the Academy of St. Gabriel Report 2136. That said, the exact form is nowhere in the report, and given the lingual mix and its time limits, we need dates. However, IGI coughs up an English Papillon within three years of the given name:

Thomas Papillon, male, christened 17 Jan 1612 at Saint Ann Blackfriars, London, London, England (C02209-2, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NL5X-NQ6)

Communication with the submitter indicates she would therefore rather the name go forward as Thalia Papillon; we have changed this to match her wishes.
