Northshield ILoI dated 2018-12-20

Greetings unto Baron Iohannes Glenfidanus, Polaris Herald, the Heralds of Northshield, and our brethren from other kingdoms. Herein please find the Northshield December Internal Letter. Comments are due by January 20, 2019.

1: Arnal al-Ilbiri de Torroja -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Catalan/Arabic) most important.

Arnal - Catalan masculine given name dated from 1140-1200 found in "Catalan Names in Latin Contexts: the late 12th century" by Juliana de Luna (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/catalan12/)

al-Ilbiri - Arabic masculine descriptive found in al-Andalus name dated from 700-1200 found in "Andalusian Names: Arabs in Spain" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/andalusia.html)

de Torroja - Catalan locative name indicating an area in Tarragona found in "Catalan Names in Latin Contexts: the late 12th century" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/catalan12data.htm#list)

The mixture of Catalan with Arabic is allowed by SENA Appendix C

Both languages used (Catalan and Arabic) permit/ support the construction order "given + descriptive + locative" under SENA Appendix A.

Catalan: The "Men's Bynames" section of "Catalan Names in Latin Contexts: the late 12th century" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/catalan12.htm) supports the use of descriptives as bynames in Catalan names.

Arabic: The "PERIOD ARABIC NAMES AND NAMING PRACTICES" article (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm), referenced under SENA Appendix A supports the descriptive byname + locative byname pattern for Arabic.

I'm afraid Juliana de Luna was misled; al-Ilbrīrī is a locative, based on the town of Ilbīra, now known as Elvira. Please see the attached.

The rest of the documentation seems OK.

Mira Fastova (Keythong) at 2018-12-26 14:14:57
I was confused by your comment at first. Just to clarify, you are pointing out that Juliana has miscategorized <al-Ilbiri> as a descriptive name when it is in fact a locative name. Is this correct? I keyed on your spelling of al-Ilbrīrī thinking that was the significant issue. (Holiday brain)

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2018-12-27 15:47:02
I doubt the error was Juliana's; she strikes me as more careful than that. I suspect the error was in her source, Estudios Onomastico-Biograficos de al-Andalus.

In any event, it's a locative. I use macrons as that's what I'm used to; as well, HTML and OSCAR can handle them easily, which wasn't true when Juliana (and Da'ud before her) were writing. SENA allows dropping the macrons, so it's all good. ;-)

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-12-30 19:23:31
The Arabic table in http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixA categorizes al- constructions as locatives. These must surely involve the meaning 'the' attaching an adjectivized place to a person.

The question then arises, can a name have two locatives, one Arabic and the other Catalan?

The meaning is 'Arnal the Ilbiran from Torroja', with the two sites both Iberian but not close. So the submission is analogous to "Jack the Louisianan from New York"--which strikes me as plausible for meaning, given that Jack can reside in New York and be known as being from there when he's in Maine or Utah, while simultaneously identifying and being identifiable as a Louisiana man.

Since Catalan permits <given+byname+locative>, the College needs to decide whether Catalan can treat <al-Ibiri> as a byname. I believe the kingdom should send that decision up the line.

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2018-12-31 16:08:58
In Arabic, all nouns and adjectives are either definite or indefinite. Any word ordinarily indefinite can be made definite by adding the prefix al-. Any adjective made from the name of a place is ordinarily indefinite. E.g., Dimashq is a city (Damascus in modern English). Dimashqī is an adjective, meaning "of or related to Damascus; Damascene". al-Dimashqī is "the Damascene".

Arabic does have double locatives; I guess this is a "wake-up call" to finish the article I've been fiddling around with, and send it to St. Gabriel. Most double locatives are of the form al-(region) al-(town). That is, the region/area the person came from is listed first, then the town/city of origin. You can compare this to someone saying "I'm from Michigan; Lansing, to be specific."

There are others of the form al-(large city) al-(nearby small town). This is like someone saying "I'm from Minneapolis---well, Anoka, actually."

It is rare, but not unknown, for an Arabic name to have two locatives based on cities that are not near each other. Usually, this happens when someone becomes known for actions s/he performed in both cities. And, usually they are major cities some distance apart. See the attached for an example.

Of course, there's the question "Can we extend an Arabic name structure to a name that is mostly Catalan?" I believe that is acceptable under SENA, but Pelican will have to make that decision.

2: Dobhran Ó Ceallaigh -Resub Name

Please consider the following possible conflicts identified by OSCAR (many will not be conflicts): Deborah Inis Glas(7/1997)

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Doh-vuh-ruhn) most important.
Language (Celtic/Irish/Scottish) most important.

Submission History: Name was first submitted as <Dobhrain U Caellaighi> on the December 2016 Northshield Kingdom LoI. (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=71256)

There were questions about changes to the name that needed to be cleared with submitter. Submitter did not respond to contact attempts, so the submission has been pended for two years. He showed up at a consultation table this month asking about the submission (Yay!!!) so we are able to proceed.

Dobhran is a masculine given name dated to 1035. Dobhrain is the genitive case in the original text "The Annals of the Four Masters"; M1035.5 in the CELT edition: (http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/G100005B/text014.html) Item #1 below. This is demonstrated by its position and function:

'Cú Sléibhe, mac Dobhrain, tigherna Corca Fir Trí, d'écc.'

which correlates to, in English (http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T100005B/text014.html):

'Cusleibhe, son of Dobhran, lord of Corca-Firtri, died.'

Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/index.shtml) indicates that:

"Artbrain" is the genitive of "Artbran",

"Anfudáin" is the genitive of "Anfudán",

"Briain" is the genitive of "Brian",

"Cadain" is the genitive of "Cadan", and

"Conligain" is the genitive of "Conligan",

so it seems a reasonable conclusion that <Dobhran> is the nominative form of <Dobhrain>.

Ó Ceallaigh - Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Cellach / Ceallach" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Cellach.shtml) gives <Cellaig> as the standard Middle Irish Gaelic genitive and <Ceallaigh> as the standard Early Modern Irish Gaelic genitive of the name <Cellach/Ceallach>, and Sharon L. Krossa's "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names"(http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname) says:

The standard way to form a name using an Irish clan affiliation byname for men is:

<single given name> Ó <eponymous clan ancestor's name (in genitive case)>

Construction of the name given + clan affiliation byname checks. I find no conflicts.


3: Erna inn hviti -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

Erna - Old Norse feminine given name found on p 9 of Geirr Bassi

inn hviti - Old Norse nickname meaning 'white' found on p 23 of Geirr Bassi

Name Comments:

ffride wlffsdotter at 2018-12-23 02:37:21
Lind col. 244 sn. Erna only mentions a mythological instance of the name: Erna was the daughter of Hersir ("ruler") in the Rígsþula. (https://archive.org/stream/elderorpoeticedd01brayuoft#page/212/mode/2up/search/Erna)

If the submitter wants a feminine name, the expected byname would be "in hvita."

I'd recommend the submitter be told about the feminine name Arna.
Lind col. 33 sn. Arna has:
"Arno moþor Sicelio" genitive, end of the 1200s.
Arna a Wiflastadum, Biskop Eysteins jordebog circa 1400

Tilnavne i den islandske oldlitteratur by Finnur Jónsson has:
sn. hviti (hinn)
http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Tilnavne:_Legemet
Grímr Hák. XIII [Grímr inn hviti, from Hákonar saga Hákonarsonar written in the 13th century]
Skeggi Sturl. XIII [Skeggi inn hviti, from Sturlunga saga written from the 12-13th centuries by various authors.]

A name like Arna in_ hvita would be within 500 years of the name elements, and wouldn't be quite so mythical.


4: Eyja Bassadottir -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Northshield LoI of October 31, 2018 as submitted.

Azure, within two dolphins in annulo a garb Or

Submission History: Previous submission of 'Azure, within two dolphins in annulo a garb Or', was returned on October 2018 Northshield kingdom letter for a redraw of the dolphins based on kingdom commentary. (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=91452)

Device Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2018-12-21 09:16:45
I'm not sure what the submitter was told in the return letter, but there were more issues with the original than just the drawing of the dolphins, most of which were pointed out in the previous commentary:

1) If the charges are considered co-primary (which is what I'd lean to with the current emblazon), and the dolphins are blazoned as 'in annulo' this has a Unity of Arrangement issue.

2) As drawn, I don't think these dolphins *are* in annulo, and I'd likely blazon this as a co-primary arrangement like so: Azure, in pale a garb between a dolphin and a dolphin inverted Or. This would run afoul of the ban on inverted animate charges: "We do not allow inverted animate charges in SCA heraldry except when in recognized orientation, such as in annulo. (Daibhidh MacRaibert, 2/1999, upheld 6/2016)".

3) If this is considered a primary garb and secondary dolphins (unlikely), this presumes on the real world arms of Grosvenor, Azure, a garb Or.

So the only way for this design to thread the needle of issues is for the dolphins to be both clearly 'in annulo' and clearly primary, and I believe the current emblazon fails on both counts.

(A potential conflict was also called at kingdom for the dolphin-primary interpretation against Sheridan of the Mists, Azure, two fish counter-embowed in annulo Or, but now that the fish are clearly dolphins there's a 2nd DC for fish versus heraldic dolphins.)

Etienne Le Mons (Sea Stag) at 2018-12-26 10:39:30
Because the garb is the only central charge group, it would be primary. The conflict of Grosvenor would apply.
I do agree that these dolphins are not in annulo. They would need to be curved into the shape of an annulet for that.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-12-30 19:38:24
Merely for completeness: Subsequent to the ironically named Modest Proposal being implemented by the College in 1994, we no longer look for conflict among all real-world arms. However, the real-world arms of Grosvenor are registered with the College as "Important non-SCA arms", presumably because they were the result of an important dispute before Her Britannic Majesty's High Court of Chivalry.

Eldred AElfwald (Azure Dragon) at 2019-01-03 21:29:06
I agree with Iago on all three points. The dolphins are definitely not in annulo, and the reblazon works.

Now, if it is important to the submitter that the dolphins appear to be in a circular arrangement, they would be better drawn embowed as Sea Stag suggests.

This should not conflict with Grosvenor. The dolphins are large enough to be considered co-primary.


5: Katerinka Lvovicha -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2008, via the East.

Per bend nebuly azure and Or

Old Item: Per chevron azure and vert, a chevron argent and in base a lion dormant Or, to be retained as a badge.

Device Comments:

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2018-12-21 19:02:13
Versus Valerianus Magnus, device reg. 12/99 via Caid: "Per bend rayonny azure and Or", we see just the type of partition line.

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2018-12-22 17:28:27
I have never seen nebuly that looked anything like this. I'd like to see some documentation for it.

Iago ab Adam at 2018-12-22 18:15:04
https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=18582

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2018-12-22 20:06:03
Well, color me nonplussed!

That's certianly an ... um, interesting line of division. But it's definitely documented. :-)

Iago ab Adam at 2018-12-22 20:21:48
Yeah, the only reason I had it right at hand was it didn't look right to me either and I'd gone hunting for other examples in OSCAR.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-12-30 19:52:08
This emblazon is a compromise among the lines in the German examples cited with Mael Anfaid Dubh's submission linked to above by Maister Iago: The nebules here are about as shallowly curved as in the last two cases there and have several lobes like the first three. That strikes me as a plausible hybridization--more so than Mael's similar compromise, which has only a few lobes--but perhaps the point should be made in the XLoI.

Katerinka Lvovicha at 2019-01-08 07:39:31
Hi, submitter here. As it looks like I missed the conflict pointed out by Green Anchor, I'm likely going to need to resub. Would you advise changing the angle of the nebules, or is this sufficient as drawn?

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2019-01-08 17:11:08
I'm not sure what Gerard means by "shallowly curved", but your submission and #2 in the examples in the submission linked to by Iago ab Adam are very, very similar. I think it's fine as is.

Good luck finding a resubmission that's without conflict. :-)

Katerinka Lvovicha at 2019-01-08 07:36:43
Hi, submitter here. I have been cheerfully referring to it as "escallopy" when describing it.

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2019-01-08 17:12:08
LOL!

Given example #3 at https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=18582 I think that's very appropriate. :-)

Mira Fastova (Keythong) at 2018-12-23 07:51:48
Thank you, Iago

Eldred AElfwald (Azure Dragon) at 2019-01-03 21:30:22
Awesome catch, Iago.

8: Northshield, Kingdom of -New Badge Association

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2004, via Northshield.

(Fieldless) A compass rose per pale sable and Or

This submission is to be associated with Northshield Augmentations of Arms

This branch name, registered in October of 1994 (via the Middle), was updated to Northshield, Kingdom of in July of 2004 (via Northshield).

The purpose of this submission is to associate this badge as a preregistered augmentation of arms to be awarded by the royalty of the Kingdom of Northshield. This association was not done at the time of registration of the badge in May 2016, via Northshield.

Badge Association Comments:

Percival de la Rocque (Purple Mantle Herald) at 2018-12-22 20:28:11
I am not sure what the intent of this badge being associated to an augmentation is to be used as? The Crown may grant an augmentation and may suggest its form but as per Sena A.3 3.

Augmentations of Honor: An augmentation is a mark of honor bestowed by the Crown that is added to an existing device. An augmentation may not be added to a badge. An augmentation may take many forms, including but not limited to a charged canton, a charged chief, charges in canton or chief, a charge associated with the Crown, or a charge associated with the individual receiving the honor.

While the right to an augmentation is bestowed by the Crown, its specific form must be determined through the normal registration process. Both the augmentation itself and the augmented device must follow the style rules and restrictions on charges. Because an augmentation adds complexity, augmented devices are often allowed to violate certain style rules, such as allowing charges on tertiary charges or a complexity count of greater than eight, as long as the identifiability of the design is maintained. However, they may not violate the rules on contrast.

ffride wlffsdotter at 2018-12-24 00:01:55
There are two parts to this. The first, is that kingdoms are unique in that they can register a "standard" augmentation of arms, and state it is a badge used for augmentations. By doing so, it makes life easier for submitters who want to use a standardised augmentation, without having to organise written permission from the Crown to use the badge.

The Administrative Handbook explains that kingdoms are entitled to register a standard augmentation: II.E.4. Augmentation - An addition to arms given as an honor.... Kingdoms may register an armory item for use as a standard augmentation, although its suitability for use with any device or arms must be determined by the College of Arms on a case by case basis. (Emphasis added.)
(http://heraldry.sca.org/admin.html)

The rest of SENA A3.3, after the example, explains why kingdoms would want to register a standard augmentation, particularly if it is the sort of style that might be used by submitters as a charged canton:

An augmentation that appears to be a display of independent armory, such as a charged canton or a single charged escutcheon, must also be evaluated as if the augmentation itself were a submission of independent armory for purposes of style, conflict, offense, and presumption. Kingdoms may designate a badge as a standard augmentation for its subjects who receive augmentations. Such a badge is considered to be subject to the existing registration allowance and does not need to be further checked for style, conflict, offense, or presumption. However, it must maintain good contrast with the field or charge that it is on. (Emphasis added.)

Mira Fastova (Keythong) at 2018-12-24 09:58:04
Associating the badge to the augmentation will help insure that the intent of this piece of armory is not lost within the kingdom's registered heraldry.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-12-30 20:14:28
Note that it is the recipient's choice to use the Kingdom's standard augmentation or propose a different one.

Mira Fastova (Keythong) at 2019-01-01 11:39:30
Not that it's relevant to completion of this submission, in our kingdom the submitter is limited to the augmentation specified by the awarding royalty on the scroll. If nothing is specified, it is open. Which, I guess, is the same thing you said.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2018-12-30 20:31:32
As noted at https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=5575&dsn=92377#14 in this letter by Seraphina Ragged Staff, and approved by Keythong, Northshield Augmentation of Arms should probably be Standard Augmentation.

That is in fact the term under which a fielded badge was registered to the Kingdom of An Tir (Sep 2018) and four fieldless ones to the Kingdom of Atlantia--which latter seems to show that Northshield may offer a choice of Standard Augmentations.
