Ealdormere ILoI dated 2018-07-24
Unto the most honourable members of the Ealdormere College of Heralds, and to its most distinguished external commenters, from The Honourable Lord Dietrich von Sachsen, Green Mantle Herald, greetings.
1: Christoff Hudd -Resub Device
OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.
Sable, a mascle, on a chief argent three annulets sable.
The client's previous submission, "Sable, a winged mascle and on a chief argent three annulets sable", was returned on the April 2018 LoAR:
* Christoff Hudd. Device. Sable, a winged mascle and on a chief argent three annulets sable.
This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters struggled to recognize the mascle, most seeing the primary charge as a vol.
This is a complete redesign.
2: Colyne Stewart and Þorfinna gráfeldr -New Household Name & New Badge
OSCAR finds the name (Colyne Stewart) registered exactly as it appears in June of 2002, via Ealdormere.
OSCAR finds the name (Þorfinna gráfeldr) registered exactly as it appears in September of 2003, via Ealdormere.
(Fieldless), a fox's mask gules within and conjoined to an arch argent.
Submitter has no desire as to gender.
In Reynard the Fox (translated into English by William Caxton in 1481 and reprinted several times over the following century before the time of Spenser's career)… Reynard's home, Malepardus, is called a "castel" (Raynard the Foxe, passim), the description calls to a fox-hole: "for Malepardus was ful of holes, here one hole & there an other, and yonder an other, narow, croked, & longe, with many wayes to go out, whiche he opened & shette when it pleaseth hym, and when he had nede" (Raynarde the Fox, B5v).1
"with his frendes and lynage departed nobly fro the kynge; and wente unto his castell Malepardus" (Raynarde the Foxe, S8r).

No major changes.
Spelling (Mic Cillian) most important.
This name uses a combined Irish Gaelic and English names, as is allowed in Appendix C of SENA.
Mic: Late-period English given name. Found in:
"England Marriages, 1538-1973 ," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5VZ-CTM : 10 February 2018), Mic Glasshawes and Sus Amy, 01 Nov 1559; citing Tonbridge,Kent,England, reference , index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 0845142 IT 2.

Cillian: Irish byname, originally a diminutive of Ceallach. (See the attached documentation).
Variant spellings of this can be found in found in "16th & 17th Century Anglicized Irish Surnames from Woulfe" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (Kathleen M. O'Brien). Anglicized as Gillian. http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Woulfe/SortedByGaelicSpelling.shtml
* Ó Cilleáin (anglicized as O Killane)
* Ó Cillín (anglicized as O Killine and O Killen)
Although Woulfe does not document Cilleáin or Cillín without the O, there are examples of names that appear with or without the Patronymic (see for example Ailín and Mac Ailín). Also, Killine and Killen appear as English surnames.:
William Killen, married in 1614. "England Marriages, 1538-1973 ," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKWW-MZD : 10 February 2018), William Killen and Bridget Farmer, 01 Nov 1614; citing Broad-Hinton, Wiltshire, England, reference , index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 1,239,308.

Based on these examples, client believes that Cillian is a plausable byname for late-period Ireland or England.
