Avacal Kingdom ILoI dated 2018-09-04


We had a few pended items from our July letter for "re-review" and will add to our decision meeting on September 24. Thank you for your assistance.

1: Ívarr Røriksson the Black -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per chevron throughout sable and vert, a boars head cabossed argent, in chief a crown, an orle of chain Or

Ívarr - masculine given name, GB p. 12

Røriksson -

Røriksson - Academy of St. Gabriel report #1892 [www.s-gabriel.ord/1892] states:

<Rurik>, the name that <Rurikson> is based on, is a Russianized form of the

Viking-era name <R{o|}rik>, which is found in Denmark in your period and later (the {o|} stands for an <o> with a slash through it). The languages of Denmark and Sweden were quite similar through the 1200s, and we are confident that <R{o|}rik> is also appropriate for Sweden. A person whose father was named <R{o|}rik> would be called <R{o|}riks son>. (6)

Footnote (6) is cited as Knudsen, Gunnar; Marius Kristiansen; & Rikard Hornby, _Danmarks Gamle Personnavne_, Vol. I: Fornavne (Copenhagen: 1936-48), s.n. R{o|}rik

the black-

Geirr Bassi (op. cit., p. 28) gives inn svarti as a descriptive byname meaning "the black".

both provide adequate documentation for the translation of inn svarti to "the black". Using SENA 1.B.2.c, Lingua Anglica, translation is acceptable.

Appendix A allows the construction: given name (Ívarr) + patronymic (Røriksson) + descriptive byname converted to modern English (the black)

Redraw has been approved by client and on file with the submisisons herald. Viscounty, Avacal Feb 22 2003; Knight An Tir Oct 9 1999.

2: Kerry Garadh -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via Avacal.
