Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2018-10-01

Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ210, 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 second batch of Pennsic submissions.

1: Ædiva of Cratorne -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (Likes Æ but will accept Ediva (doc for 1148)) most important.

Herald of Record: Jehan de la Marche

Ædiva is dated to 1086 as a Latinized English feminine name in Reaney and Wilson s.n. Eadie: Eddiva, {Ae}diva pulchra 1086 DB.

Cratorne is a location dated to the Domesday Book in Ekwall s.n. Crathorne Cratorne DB.


2: Æthelmearc, Kingdom of -New Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1998, via Æthelmearc.

Golden Escarbuncle Pursuivant

This submission is to be associated with Æthelmearc College of Heralds Archivist
No major changes.

Herald of Record: Madoc Arundel

The title follows the pattern of [order name] + [heraldic designator]

As designators are transparent for conflict purposes, Order of the Cherubim and House Cherubim are identical and so may not both be registered, even to the same owner. The single exception to this policy is that a branch may register a heraldic title and an order name that are identical except for the designators. This exception is due to the period practice of deriving heraldic titles from the names of orders.

One type of name (such as a household, order, or heraldic title) may not simply be switched to a different type of name by changing the designator. The one exception to this requirement is that heraldic titles may be formed from registered order names without redocumenting the order name. The reason for this exception is that there is sufficient examples of heraldic titles being drawn from order names in period to support such registrations. [Angels, Barony of the, 02/2003 LoAR, R-Caid]

Golden Escarbuncle, Award of the: This order name was registered to Æthelmearc, Kingdom of in September of 2016 (via AEthelmearc).

Under NPN3.C.1, this does not conflict with Escarbuncle Herald (heraldic title registered to Konrad von Greifswald July 2003 via the Outlands), due to the addition of the two-syllable modifier Golden to the substantive element.


3: Agathe Kletz von Hamburg -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a mouse statant and on a point pointed argent a pair of hands appaumy couped inverted azure.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Client wants both bynames) most important.

Herald of Record: Saiman Tokushou

Agathe is documented as a German feminine given name in the late 1300's (1360, 1383, 1397), "Medieval German Given Names from Silesia" by Talan Gwynek, (heraldry.sca.org/names/bahlow_v.htm).

Kletz is documented as a German Byname as Jonas Kletz on family search. "Deutschland Geburten und Taufen, 1558-1898," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NNK7-NYY : 10 February 2018), Jonas Kletz, 08 Jul 1593; citing ; FHL microfilm 1,340,180." Batch: C92230-1.

von Hamburg is a locative byname. Hamburg can be found in the title of _Ein Brieff der Prediger zu Hamburg, an die Theologen zu Wittembergk, in welchem gehandelt wirt von Mitteldingen, zu dieser zeit sehr nützlich zu lesen_ published in 1549 (https://books.google.com/books?id=sUo8AAAAcAAJ).

SENA Appendix A lists a double byname with second name as locative as a legal name pattern for German names.

Herald of Record: Wynne ferch Rhodri


4: Amalia Andrijeva doch' Mihajlo Lesniak -New Name & New Device

Amalia Andrijeva doch' Mihajlo Lesniak

Vert, on a fess argent a horse statant reguardant azure.

Language (Slovak) most important.

Herald of Record: Ermine Field

Amalia is a feminine given name found in the German language book Copia Schreibens an das ... Churfürstl. Collegium von ... Amalia Elisabetha Landgräfin zu Hessen, published 1640 (https://books.google.com/books?id=ID5FAAAAcAAJ).

Andrijeva is a feminized byname found in Vienac (Vijenac). Zabavi i pouci. Izdaje (https://books.google.com/books?id=9sKPme_xXwsC&pg=PA325), p. 325. This is a modern source discussing people from 1527. It is derived from the byname Andrijev, itself derived from the given name Andrij. (The consulting herald is not sure exactly in which Slavic language this book is written.) Russian forms of this name can be found in Russian in Wickenden, s.n. Andrei, with dated forms such as Andrei (c1495) and Endrei (14th C). Assistance finding better documentation for this name is appreciated.

doch' is the Russian patronymic particle found in Wickenden. Assistance documenting the correct particle is appreciated.

Mihajlo is a variant of the Serbian Mihailo, found in the 1621 Zarcalo dvhovno od pocetka, i sfarhe xivota coviecanskoga Razdieglieno, i ... By Mauro Orbini (https://books.google.com/books?id=OZhoAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA7), p. 7.

Lesniak - is a Russian or Belorussian occupational byname meaning "woodsman, forester" or "person living in a thicket" (see notes from ffride wlffsdotter in the attached documentation). A related form is the Russian patronym Lesnikov, found as the header in Wickenden, dated c.1495. Another is the Polish surname Leśnikowski (derived from a place name named after an occupation), dated 1625 and 1643 in Abramowicz et al, vol. 1, s.n. Leśnikowski. Assistance documenting the unmarked form (without a suffix) is appreciated.

By precedent, patronymic particle + father's name is a single name phrase, so needs to be in the same language. The patterns of multiple generation patronyms and patronyms formed from the father's full name are found in Russian per Appendix A of SENA. Double bynames and patronyms also appear in Polish, so the overall basic construction of given + patronym + patronym may be plausible in other Slavic languages as well. ffride is working on this from Lochac. She will email Lillia back with docs. The submitter will need a consult to go over the results. The images of the docs for the uploaded documentation PDF will be uploaded by Lillia when it is all done. Lillia has also emailed Sofya la Rus for assistance.

Mana: Found in GB pg. 25, one instance Landnamabok of -dottir: Matronymic GB pg. 17 under Patronymics & Matronymics.

Name construction as found in SENA Appendix A.

Some concern arose in review as to whether claiming to be a daughter of the moon was a claim to divine or supernatural powers.

Claiming to be the daughter of the moon appears to me to be a claim on supernatural powers. It is unclear to me that this matronymic would be normally formed by real premodern Scandinavians. Yes, Thor is both the name of a god and a fairly common modern name, but appears to have been avoided as a personal name in premodern Scandinavia. Yes, Thor- does commonly appear as a prototheme and Thora (which is clearly distinct from the male god) is reasonable. But, calling someone Thorson appears to suggest divine birth. Similarly, being born of the moon appears to be claim to supernatural birth and likely supernatural powers. This sort of name is typically avoided in the Society. Mana- appears to be mis-cited as it is listed in Geirr Bassi as a prepositional byname and NOT as a free-standing given name. I find it difficult to believe that Manadottir is properly formed as patronymics and matronymics as Beirr Bassi (cited above in the documentation) asserts that these bynames are formed from the genitive case of the given name (not a prepositional byname) of one of the parents.[Anon Pennsic reviewer]

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Household name is to be jointly owned with Lucilla Theresa de Courtenay.

Clann: Designation of a family unit, listed in "Medieval Gaelic Clan, Household, and Other Group Names", by Sharon L. Krossa (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/households.shtml). The article states that the pattern <clan term> + <given name> is appropriate. "Most commonly the name used for the eponymous clan ancestor was his given name only".

The article also states, "After 'clann' the clan ancestor's name is lenited unless his name starts with D, T, L, N, or R." Since the submitted ancestor's name starts with L, no lenition is necessary.

Client would prefer the designation "Clan" vs. "Clann" if at all possible.

Lurkr: Old Norse given name listed in the article, "Scandinavian Personal Names in Domesday Book", by Aelfwynn Gyrthesdohtor (Proceedings of the 1981 Caerthan Heraldic Symposium, Kingdom of Atenveldt). A copy of the relevant pages is included in the packet.

Neil Armstrong was no Christopher Columbus. In most respects, he was better. Unlike the famous fifteenth century seafarer, Armstrong knew where he landed. He also spent his time in public service, not in jail, and his passing was marked by world-wide encomiums. He ended his days as a celebrated explorer rather than a royal inconvenience. --Seth Shostak
