Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2018-09-01

Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ209, 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. This letter constitutes the first batch of Pennsic submissions.

1: Adelinde Katla -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 1986, via the East.

Plumetty azure and argent, a dragon statant in annulo counterermine.

Herald of Record: Thora Grimudottir


2: Adhemar of St. Albans -New Name & New Device

Argent, a cross throughout cotised gules, in sinister chief a raven volant bendwise sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (spelling of 'Adhemar') most important.

Herald of Record: Thomas Haworth

'Adhemar' is found in Academy of Saint Gabriel Report #2575: We found many forms of the name 'Adhemar' between the ninth and twelfth centuries. The Latinized form 'Ademarus' was most common; we also found the forms 'Adhemarus', 'Adamar', 'Ademar', and 'Atmarus'.[1] We also found several forms of this name between the twelfth century and about 1300 in the Occitan language, which was spoken in southern France. [1,2,3,11] Based on these examples, we can recommend 'Ademar' as an appropriate name for a French man living sometime between the ninth and fourteenth centuries. The form 'Adhemar' is rarer, but we believe it is still appropriate for your period.

[2] Ramons lo Montables, "French/Occitan Names From The XII And XIII Century" (www: J. Mittleman, 1997 http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ramon/occitan/

[3] Arval Benicoeur, " languedoc Names circa 1300" (WWW: privately published, 1998) Http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/toulouse/. 'Ademarius' (Latin) is found with these as the vernacular (Occitan) forms: Azemar [R,C], Aimar, Aesmar [C]

'of' English preposition

'St Albans' is the modern Lingua Anglica form of the name of the town found in Victor Watts "The Cambridge Dictionary of English Place-Names", Cambridge: Cambridge University Press s.n. ST ALBANS. Dated forms of the name include 'Sancte Albanes stow 1007' through 'Seynt Albones 1421'.

3: Annice Landi -New Name

Herald of Record: Conall an Doire

Annice is the submitter's modern middle name verified by Conall an Doire and Lillia Crampet with Pennsylvania drivers license.

She prefers this spelling to Anes, found in the 1292 Paris Census or the Italian Agnese/Agnesa (found in the same article as the byname. Check with her about the forms we've found.

Landi is a family name found in 1427 Florence, in Juliana de Luna's "Names in 15th Century Florence and her Dominions: the Condado" (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/condado/).

Azure, a serpent coiled and on a chief argent a bow reversed between two musical notes azure.

Client's previous submission (East kingdom) was returned at Laurel on the 10/2017 LoAR:

Danielle de Lorraine. Device. Azure, a serpent involved and on a chief argent a bow palewise reversed between two musical notes azure. This device is returned for violation of SENA A2C1, which requires that charges be depicted in their period formats. The musical notes in this submission have flags that extend horizontally, like a pennon. Period musical notation, if they used flags at all, drooped them vertically, and even folded them back onto the stem, to save space on the page. This depiction of musical notes doesn't show up until well past even the grey period.
The redraw has cleared the issue.

The byname j Vaghom is a locative byname found in the same article; the modern equivalent is Vågan. We believe the alternation between j and i in the preposition seems not uncommon in texts from the "Diplomatarium Norvegicum" in this period. We'd appreciate any assistance in finding documentation to support this.
