Request assistance in documenting given name in any time or culture compatible with MacInnes surname.

Esme: Scottish female name of Greek, Latin, or French origin. An alternate spelling of Ismay (undocumented). Root name of Amy (Scotland 1402 [LEASK, 421]). In French, past participle of the verb esmer ["to love"]. Introduced to Scotland in the 16th century (https://thmeaningofthename.com/esme)

Although cockatrice is searchable in the online ordinary under "dragon", the two do not conflict.

Wolfger von Lausfenburg [November 1997]. Name and device. Vair en pointe, a cockatrice displayed wings inverted head to sinister Or.

Possible conflicts were called with Barony of Dragons Laire Per pale gules and sable a two headed dragon displayed Or grasping in dexter forepaw a laurel wreath vert and in sinister forepaw a moneybag gules, and Beltran of the Mount (SCA) Vair, a wivern volant to sinister Or maintaining a pomme charged with three fountains. In both cases there needs to be a CD between a wivern/dragon and a cockatrice for the two submissions to be clear.

If period monsters, were not considered different in period, this device would conflict with both of these, since we do not normally give a difference for changing the head only of a beast or monster. However, since they were considered different monsters in period, and since the head is not obscured in any way, we are willing to grant it the necessary CD to make it clear of these possible conflicts.

January, in ermine cloak,
With crystal spangles dight,
He gave the queen an Ivy crown,
And her fair shoulders white
He happ'd with tender ferny Moss
From many a cosy nook,
Or from the rounded boulders warm
Beside the frozen brook.

~James Rigg, "The Progress of Queen Flora, Adorned by a Hundred Wild Flowers," Wild Flower Lyrics and Other Poems, 1897
