Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2018-02-12
Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ202, internal letter of intent. It is the intent of the Garnet office to submit the following elements to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms for registration.
1: Benedict Fergus atte Mede -New Badge
OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2003, via Æthelmearc.
(Fieldless) A salamander contourny argent flamed proper.
Herald of Record: Helena Mutzhasen
The question is whether these flames are drawn in an heraldically acceptable manner, considering that they are part of the definition of a salamander rather than charges in and of themselves.
2: Claude du Vivier -New Name
Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Clawd doo Vivv- ee- yay) most important.
Language (French) most important.
Culture (French) most important.
Herald of Record: Helena Mutzhasen

3: Melissa Anne the Artisan -New Name

Melissa: Client's legal given name as attested by the consulting herald. FamilySearch gives Mellis to 1596 in Devonshire:
"England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NB3L-3DC : 6 December 2014, Mellis Nethercotte, 03 Aug 1596); citing ILFRACOMBE,DEVON,ENGLAND, index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 916,849.

the Artisan: a simple occupational byname.
4: Rhys Penbras ap Dafydd -Resub Badge
OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of September 21, 2016 as submitted.
(Fieldless) A raven contourny within and conjoined to an annulet Or.
Herald of Record: Eleanor Godwin
Client's previous submission, (Fieldless) A raven contourny Or was returned at kingdom in September 2017 for conflict with John Aquila of Eaglesdown (device, Aug 1978): Purpure, an eagle close to sinister Or, since by precedent "we do not grant difference between a raven close and an eagle close." (Nicolas Coulon, http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/12/12-12lar.html#174). The addition of the conjoined annulet clears this conflict.
"I've been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it's just whining, but every so often there'll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It's an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. 'That's not what you said on February 3, 1996,' I'll say to someone." --David Sedaris
