For the XLoI: That's actually "Robert 1 1421", meaning one occurrence in the data, dated 1421.


2: Celestria de Clare -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (meaning of Celestria as celestrial) most important.

3: Doran of Glochester -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling (Dorran) most important.

Doran - English given name dated to late 16th c from Family Search:

Doran Salte, M, 28 Feb 1567, Bodmin, Cornwall, England. Batch P00275-1. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N51B-Q86

Doran Goune, M, 08 May 1568, Bodmin, Cornwall, England. Batch P00275-1. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N51B-Q8F

of Glochester - locative byname. Glochester is the period spelling of Gloucester as found on Mercator's 1554 Map of Europe (http://www.bl.uk/turning-the-pages/?id=223c7af8-bad6-4282-a684-17bf45bd0311&type=book) See Image #1

Name Comments:

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia at 2019-01-25 10:25:28
The source for the extracted records in that batch is a typewritten transcription. However, the original images are available online, and both of the cited entries are on the same image:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9R7Q-9P39?i=10&cc=1769414&cat=7502

Left-hand page, last entry under February 1566, and right-hand page, middle entry under May 1568.

(I haven't a clue what they actually say.)

Caradoc Llew Du ap Morgan at 2019-02-10 23:00:30
The first one is definitely "Doran sonne of Thomas [something, Galt?]" which is good enough. The May 1568 is probably Doran, though the initial letter is a bit oddly shaped. Still OK.

Caradoc Llew Du ap Morgan at 2019-02-10 23:02:00
Should "Dorran" be changed to Doran, since spelling is most important?

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-02-17 10:48:34
The paperwork should be checked. Given the repeated "Doran" elsewhere in the headmatter, the sole double R may well be a mistranscription.

And even if it isn't, i.e., it's what submitter wants, we'd need an argument for the double R despite the documentation.

4: Drazhan Simanov -Resub Name & Resub Device

Argent, on a pale between two axes addorsed gules, a zule argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

Submission History: This submission is a second attempt at registering a name. Submitter's first attempt, <Ekaterina Vladimovna> was returned from the September 2017 Northshield kingdom letter due to conflict with Ekaterina Vladimovna, registered April of 1995 (via Atlantia). (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=79665)

Drazhan - masculine given name dated to 1322 found in "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section D" by Paul Goldschmidt. (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/d.html)

"Drazhan' (m) -- "dear."

Drazhan'. 1322. [Mor 78]"

Simanov - patronymic variation of Simon, found in "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Section SI" by Paul Goldschmidt. (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/si.html)

"Pat Vars: Simanov [from Siman] (Nefetko Simanov). 1598. [RIB XIV 809]"

Submission History: Redrawn submission of device that was returned on the September 2017 Northshield letter due to the axes being in an unblazonable orientation. (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=19&id=79666)

Name Comments:

ffride wlffsdotter at 2019-01-22 02:17:54
The ' in Drazhan' is actually a transliterated character, the front yer, ь.

Wickenden's source, p. 78 of Moroshkin (https://archive.org/details/slavianskimenos00morogoog/page/n191) sn. Дражань indicates the name is Serbian not Russian:
Дражань, 1322, 564, Mon. Serb.

Monumenta Serbica p. 564, 9th line from the bottom of the page has Дражань, though the source seems to be dated 1286 on the previous page?
https://archive.org/details/monumentaserbic00miklgoog/page/n576

In one sense, this doesn't matter -- precedent says that we treat the non-Russian names Wickenden mentions as being Russian. The July 2017 LoAR Cover letter notes:
"Therefore, where the submitter has not requested authenticity, names found in the Dictionary will be treated as Russian, regardless of their source. In addition, we will continue the policy of giving submitters the benefit of the doubt as to temporal compatibility when using name elements found in the Dictionary."
(https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/07/17-07cl.html#3)

But I do think it is something the submitter should be aware of.

Batonvert's discussion at http://mistholme.com/dictionary/axe/ indicates that there is no reason not to accept the submitted blazon. But if submitter particularly wants the form emblazoned, it is there called a carpenter's axe. It might be well to consult him as to his preference if any.

Iago ab Adam at 2019-01-22 14:41:43
Removing a spare comma:

Argent, on a pale between two axes addorsed gules a zule argent.

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-02-04 15:08:55
Agree that these need to be specified as carpenter's axes. No conflicts found.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-02-17 10:50:42
I didn't say that. I said that submitter should be aware of the option to specify.


5: Elvira Ordoñes de Luna -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Spanish) most important.

Elvira - (Spanish Names from the Late 15th Century) by Juliana de Luna (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/isabella/WomenFullNames.html)

Ordoñes - "Spanish Names from the Late 15th Century" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/isabella/surnames-other.html)

6: Farolfus filius Richardi -New Name & New Device

Gules, on a roundel azure fimbriated Or within a double tressure, four seeblatter in saltire points to center argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 7th-8th c Langobard, Italy.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

As written records of the Langobards in north/central Italy in the 7th-8th c are in Latin, submitter would prefer to register his name in the appropriate official/legal language of the period. Available sources with the desired name are within 300 years of the persona's time period.

Farolfus appears in ablative form in the "Dictionary of Medieval Names

from European Sources" at (http://dmnes.org/cite/Farolfo/994/RCI-Cam1).

"Farolfo m. (abl) ● Latin. Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy . 994. RCI-Cam1 4

L. Schiaparelli and F. Baldasseroni, editors. Regesto di Camaldoli, volume I of Regesta Chartarum Italiae. Rome: Ermano Loescher & Co., 1907."

The nominative form and patronymic construction <Farolfus filius [genetive]> appear in 1003 in documents at the Abby of Farfa in Lazio, central Italy. Gregory of Catino II Regesto di Farfa, Vol. 3, (ccccxlj - Images #1 & 2)

The patronym for byname appears in Codex Cavensis, XXXIII in 849 (see Images #3 & 4) and the genetive form of Richardi is standard in a wide range of Latin texts.

8: Leofwine byrne-smiþ -New Name

Leofwine - Anglo Saxon masculine given name found in PASE (http://pase.ac.uk/jsp/pdb?dosp=VIEW_RECORDS&st=PERSON_NAME&value=5001&level=1&lbl=Leofwine)

byrne-smiþ - constructed byname, meaning 'coat of mail maker', using elements found in Bosworth-Toller:

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-02-04 15:10:54
Given name doc checks out, but I suspect that there is a documentable name with this meaning, though I no longer have the required references. For instance, is there an early spelling of "Mailer"?


9: Mahir of Inner Sea -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Mahir - documented to 10th and 13th c as follows:

Jacob ben Mahir ibn Tibbon - 13th c "Less Translated Languages" edited by Albert Branchadell, Lovell Margaret West (https://books.google.com/books?id=s1n_pNr04ioC&pg=PA303&dq=%22mahir%20ibn%22&fbclid=IwAR3QMu-MxnS_-w XKzJgCvao-kB-szb6Ars-ES6J9etyhgJfQVZ3RG5gQ3k8#v=onepage&q=%22mahir%20ibn%22&f=false)

of Inner Sea - Branch name registered with CoA in February of 1998 (via the Middle)

Name Comments:

Basil Dragonstrike (Lions Heart) at 2019-01-27 20:37:34
Documentation for Mahir looks good; Abū Mahīr Mūsā ibn Sayyar is also found in the Encyclopaedia of Islam, s.n. ʻAlī b. al-ʻAbbās al-Madjūsī.

However:

Inner Sea, Shire of the
This branch-name was registered in April of 1993 (via the Middle).
Note also:
Inner Sea, Shire of
This appeared in February of 1998 (via the Middle) as a mis-spelling of Inner Sea, Shire of the. The error was corrected in July of 2006 (via the Middle)
Thus, this should become Mahir of the Inner Sea.

10: Maria Maddalena da Monreale -New Name & New Device

Per pale argent and purpure, within an orle a fess enarched counterchanged

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Maria - feminine Italian given name found in "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Florence" by Juliana de Luna (https://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Florence.shtml)

Maddalena - feminine Italian given name found in "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Florence" by Juliana de Luna (https://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Florence.shtml)

da Monreale - locative byname per "ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 1664"(http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?1664+0)

Submitter is willing to change name to Maddalena da Monreale if it is not acceptable to have two given names.

Name Comments:

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-01-21 22:13:54
The last sentence of the headmatter should be replaced by "Appendix A permits double given names in Italian."

AoSG report says about the place name, "The rest of your name, <da Monreale>, is a fine choice for your period.This is exactly the form we would expect for an Italian surname based on a placename. The town itself existed as early as the 12th century [3], and its name probably took its modern form by the 16th century."

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-01-21 22:12:11
The arrangement is not that stated in the submitted blazon, but rather

Per pale argent and purpure, a fess enarched enhanced and overall an orle, all counterchanged

Whether our Sovereigns will accept a fess ... enhanced I do not know. The only such in the O&A, registered to 'Ayisha bint Mujir (Feb 1991), was reblazoned away in Jul 2015. Submitter should be asked whether she is willing to submit and use a fess enarched placed centrally on the field or she prefers to be a test case.

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-02-04 15:12:28
The fess is not within the orle as it clearly extends beyond it right to the edge of the shield. Agree with Gerard's blazon. If the enhanced fess is not registerable, agree that the simplest change would be to lower it to a standard central position.


11: Muirenn Bhallach -New Device

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

Purpure, on a pile or gouty de vin a cup sable

Device Comments:

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-01-21 22:17:36
Fixing the tiny typos,

Purpure, on a pile Or goutty de vin a cup sable

But see my next comment.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-01-21 22:33:50
As drawn, this is not quite Or goutty de vin chaussé purpure, a cup sable, which would require the division lines to start from the top corners of the field, nor Purpure, on a pile throughout Or goutty de vin a cup sable, which would have the division lines starting from the upper edge some little way in from the corners. Either would make an elegant device, and submitter should be encouraged to submit one or the other. I fear that the present emblazon will be returned rather than merely incurring an artist's not4e.

Iago ab Adam at 2019-01-22 14:48:48
Agreed.

Alona Ezquerra at 2019-01-29 18:10:01
Concur with Gerard, and wish to add that the cup being filled with liquid purpure is probably blazonable, though I know not how.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-02-08 15:28:20
We have twice in the '80s blazoned a brazier ... filled with flames and once in 2014 a cart ... filled with straw. But I don't consider this parallel. Whether we see this as a cup filled to overflowing with more vin or as one lined of a different tincture, I believe it's an unblazonable artistic detail.

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-02-04 15:13:09
Agree with Gerard's evaluation of this. It would certainly be easy to narrow this to a pile without moving the cup, or better, with moving it up a little. No conflicts found.

12: Raziya bint Jahm -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (sound of nasab) most important.

All elements sourced from "PERIOD ARABIC NAMES AND NAMING PRACTICES" by Da'ud ibn Auda.

Pattern is [ism + patronymic particle + nasab]

Ism: Raziya - feminine ism

Particle: bint

Nasab: Jahm - masculine ism

". . . in Arabic; one always finds the particles ibn (son of) or bint (daughter of) in the nasab."

14: Ulfhildr þegjandi -New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Ulfhildr ?egjandi in June of 2009, via Northshield.

Per chevron argent and gules, a hyena proper brown maintaining an axe sable

Device Comments:

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-01-21 23:19:38
Make this

Per chevron argent and gules, a brown hyena proper maintaining an axe sable

However, according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_hyena, brown hyenas are neither spotted nor round-eared like the emblazon.

Mira Fastova (Keythong) at 2019-01-26 15:51:57
Does the blazon need to specify that it is a spotted hyena?

Etienne Le Mons (Sea Stag) at 2019-02-04 15:54:24
The submitter likely didn't know that a brown hyena was a specific species of hyena and was just using 'brown' as a qualifier as we do with most any other brown creature (like a brown cow, brown dog, etcetera). Hyenas were definitely known in period (dating in literature back to Aesops Fables in the 6th century BCE) and there was no distinction between the three modern species (brown, spotted and striped).
I found the beastie recognizable as a hyena based on the shaggy shoulders, the tail and overall canine appearance. Yes, the ears are rounded, but that's in line with period depictions of hyena.
Image 1: British Library, Royal MS 12 C. xix, Folio 11v
Image 2: Bibliothèque Nationale de France, fr. 1444b, Folio 247v A hyena has eaten a human corpse, saving the head for last.
Basically, I think the hyena is fine. The line of division.... more sketchy.

1: Image 1 2: Image 2

Etienne Le Mons (Sea Stag) at 2019-01-26 15:23:51
I could not tell if this line of division was per chevron or per fess enarched.

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-02-04 15:14:41
Of the seven previously registered hyenas, one is ermine, one is counterchanged, one is argent, two are argent with markings, and two are Or with sable markings. Not familiar enough with hyenas of any tincture to be sure to recognize a heraldic one of any tincture, so defer to Gerard's comment. No conflicts found.

Kryss Kostarev at 2019-02-06 13:13:23
Good hyena. Here is a version of the emblazon with a steeper dividing line per chevron. That makes it more obvious. Someone will need to get the submitter's approval.

15: Wolfhart Eysenhawer -New Name & New Device

Per pale vert and sable, a wolf sejant ululant and on a chief Or a serpent nowed vert

No major changes.
Sound most important.

Wolfhart - German masculine given name found in "Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources" (http://dmnes.org/cite/Wolfhart/1424/mairhofer)

"(nom) ● Early New High German. Germany . 1424. mairhofer DCCXX

Theodor Mairhofer, editor. Urkundenbuch des Augustiner Chorherren-Stiftes: Neustift in Tirol. Wien: In Commission bei Karl Gerold's Sohn, 1871.

Eysenhawer 15th c German surname as described in "ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 3228" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/3228.txt)

"<Eisenheur> appears to be a modern variant of the surname <Eisenhauer>, a word originally used to describe ironsmiths. [12] The spellings we find during your period are <Eisenhauer>, recorded in 1312 and 1446, and <Isenhouwer>, in Eschau in 1419. [10]

Additionally, in the areas where our examples of <Wolff> and <Wolfhart> come from, <eisen-> was commonly spelled <eysen-> and <-hauer> spelled <-hawer> during your period, so <Eysenhawer> would be particularly well suited to use with <Wolfhart> in the 15th century."

Per http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/05/18-05cl.html#3, the head position will disappear from the blazon. So:

Per pale vert and sable, a wolf sejant Or

Elegantly simple badge that conflicts with a registered device:

Merglin Fuchsyn (Nov 2009), Per pale azure and bendy argent and gules, a fox sejant Or

1 DC for the field, but no difference counted among canids.

Lady Merglin is shown at http://www.crystalcrags.org/memberlist.php as among the Shire of Crystal Crags' populace and might well be willing to grant Permission to Conflict.

There may, moreover, be other conflicts; I'm good at counting but generally rubbish at hunting. However, I believe Elspeth Turnbull's badge (Jan 2003), (Fieldless) A winged talbot sejant Or, is not one by a 2nd DC for the wings.

See no conflicts save that with Merglin Fuchsyn's device. Hope the client can obtain permission to conflict.
