Ealdormere ILoI dated 2019-04-24
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."
These are the submission from the Kingdom of Ealdormere this month for consideration.
1: Bjǫrn Járnason -Resub Device
OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Bjorn J?rnason in January of 2018, via Ealdormere.
Sable, a comet bendwise sinister inverted, on a chief Or a gauntleted fist palewise sable.
Client submitted on the 2018-10-24 LoI "Sable, a comet "doubly-tailed" bendwise sinister inverted, on a chief Or a gauntleted fist palewise sable." This was returned on the January 2019 LoAR:
"This device is returned for lack of documentation. While an argument can be made for two comets conjoined at the head, the orientation of the tails must be blazonable; in this instance, both of the tails blur the line between bendwise sinister and either palewise or fesswise respectively."
This is a redesign with a single-tailed comet.
2: Bryniolfr inn Stinnr -New Name
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (Norse (timeframe unimportant)) most important.
Bryniolfr: OW. Norse given name, found in Nordiskt runnamnslexikon, Third revised version, p. 20, s.n. BryniulfR
inn Stinnr - descriptor found in The Vikings of Bjornstad, Old Norse Dictionary, meaning "strong, stiff, unbending" (adj).
3: Rodrigo Navarro -New Name & New Device
Per fess gules and argent, a quill pen transfixing an escroll fesswise and a caldera gringolada counterchanged.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Rodrigo: Masculine Spanish (Castillian-Leonese) male given name, dated between 1289-1300. "Medieval Spanish Names from the Monastery of Sahagun" by Tony Borning, 2000. https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/miguel/sahagun/ Accessed April 12th, 2019.
Navarro: Locative byname, meaning "Man from Navarre". St Gabriel report 2890 suggests: "The byname <de Navarre> uses the French form of the name of the kingdom. In the Navarese language, as well as in Castilian, the kingdom was called <Navarra>. However, while the byname <de Navarra> literally means 'from Navarre', it was used rarely used except by members and relatives of the royal family.  If you would like a more typical byname that indicates that you are from Navarra, you might consider <Navarro> "the Navarese man".  <Anton Navarro> would be a fine name for a Navarese man in your period.""

4: Sarra Olafsdottir -Resub Device
OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2016, via Ealdormere.
Barry argent and azure, on a bend vert three acorns bendwise Or.
The original submission, " Argent, three bars vert and overall a bend azure." was returned on the February 2016 LoAR.
"Sadly, this lovely device conflicts with Majorca (important non-SCA arms): Or, four palets gules, overall a bend azure. The submission is equivalent to Barry argent and vert, a bend azure. There is only one DC for changing the field."
The client then submitted "Argent, three bars azure and overall bend vert" on the Ealdormere 2019-01-25 Internal LoI, but it was noted that it, and the several other proposed variations, had conflicts of their own.
This *should* be clear of any conflicts.
5: Wilfrid of Widetun -New Exchange of Device and Badge
OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2017, via Ealdormere.
Vert, a garb per pale Or and argent.
The device "Per fess azure and vert, two anchors and a garb argent" is to be retained as a badge.
6: Wulfric of Blackwood -New Badge
OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2014, via Ealdormere.
(Fieldless) A pine tree coupled conjoined to and within an annulet sable.
