OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in April of 2014, via the East.

Old Item: Brénainn mac Fergusa, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Spelling (Brennan) most important.

Brennan is an early 17th cen. English surname found in the Family Search Historical Records. By precedent, it can be used as a given name. [Alton of Grimfells, 4/2010 LoAR, A-East].

8: Caoilfhionn inghean Uí Fhaoláin -New Name & New Device

Gyronny argent and sable, a hurt within an orle azure

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

Caoilfhionn is registerable as a gray-period spelling of a saint's name dated to 1630. [Caoilfhionn inghean ui Mhaoil Ruanaidh, 12/2011 LoAR, A-Atenveldt].

inghean Uí is the Early Modern Gaelic indicator of a clan affiliation byname.

Faoláin is the genitive form of the Early Modern Gaelic male name Faolán. Because this is a feminine name, the father's name must be lenited to Fhaoláin.

The submitter would prefer Caoilfhionn inghean Fhaoláin. However, this name is pronounced identically to Caelainn inghean Fhaolain, registered March 2001 via the West. The name has been submitted as inghean Uí Fhaoláin, which does not conflict, while we seek permission to conflict from Caelainn. If permission to conflict is obtained, the submitter would like the to be dropped.

of Falcon Cree -- Falcon Cree, Canton of was registered in March of 1981 (via Atlantia), but was changed to Falconcree, Canton of in December of 1982 (via Atlantia). SENA PN.1.B.2.f states: "Only the exact registered form of the branch name may be used, and they are registered in the lingua Anglica form, 'of Branchname'." Unless commenters can provide independent documentation for the form of Falcon Cree, this element will have to be changed to the registered of Falconcree.


11: Eilionora Alann inghean Uí Ruairc -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Consulting heralds: Sisterhood of Saint Walburga

Eilionora is an Early Modern Irish female given name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Eilionora.shtml) with Annals dates of 1497 and 1589.

Alann is the Early Modern Irish form of a descriptive byname meaning "the Comely" found in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/Alann.shtml) with relevant Annals dates of 1377, 1491.

inghean Uí Ruairc is the feminine form of Ó Ruairc, a header form in Woulfe at p. 636. There are several italicized 16th cen. Anglicized Irish forms under this header, which generally is sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt as to the use of the header form in the same period.


12: Eithne Bán ingen Fhiachon -New Name & New Device

Per pale Or and argent, on a fess between a raven displayed sable and a tree eradicated vert two swords in saltire proper.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Irish Gaelic) most important.
Culture (Irish Gaelic) most important.

Eithne is an Old and Middle Irish Gaelic female given name found in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Eithne.shtml) with Annals dates of 763, 768, 773, 778, 790, 792, 795, 916, 917, 918, 948, 951, 953, 1009, 1015 and 1016.

Bán is a descriptive byname meaning "the Fair" found in Mari's "Index" in Old, Middle and Early Modern Irish (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/Ban.shtml). The relevant instances in the Annals are dated 858 and 1052. Although feminine descriptive bynames must be lenited, in pre-1200 Gaelic "b" lenites to "b" so no spelling change is required.

ingen Fhiachon - Fiachu is a Middle Irish Gaelic male name, found in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Fiachu.shtml) with relevant Annals dates of 1044 and 1066. When used to form a patronymic, the name should be in the genitive form, which the "Index" does not provide. However, based on other examples in Mari's "Index," it appears that the proper genitive form may be Fiachon:

The Middle Irish Gaelic name Árchu becomes Árchon in the genitive (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Archu.shtml)

The Old Irish Gaelic name Finnchú becomes Finnchon (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Finnchu.shtml)

Consistent with the rules of Gaelic grammar, Fiachon lenites to Fhiachon following ingen.

The use of a bird other than an eagle displayed is a Step from Period Practice.


13: Eithne Bán ingen Fhiachon -New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

The submitter's name and device appear elsewhere on this letter.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1991, via the East

(Fieldless) A pawprint bendwise sinister sable

There is a Step from Period Practice for the use of a paw print as a charge.

A paw print is a single charge, like an emine spot. Although all of its component parts are not touching, a paw print should, like an ermine spot, be registerable as a fieldless badge.


23: Margrete Makmyllan -New Name & New Device

Sable, a lymphad and on a chief argent three mullets of five points azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (Scots) most important.
Culture (Scots) most important.

Correction (2013-Dec-05 13:12:46): The field should be blazoned as Azure as depicted in the emblazon.


24: Marquesa Manuell de Carvalhal -Resub Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The submitter's original name, Marquesa de Carvalhal, was returned on the June 2011 LoAR with the following explanation:

This name is presumptuous and cannot be registered. While it is a period given name, Marquesa is also the Spanish word meaning 'marchioness' (the feminine form of marquis). As such, it follows the same rules as Regina; it can only be registered in contexts that are not a claim to rank.

The Rules for Submissions Section VI.1 say: Names documented to have been used in period may be used, even if they were derived from titles, provided there is no suggestion of territorial claim or explicit assertion of rank. For example, Regina the Laundress is acceptable but Regina of Germany is not.

As this title/name is followed by a locative element, it falls afoul of this rule and cannot be registered. Marquesa Perez, on the other hand, could be registered.

No holding name was created because her armory was returned on the same letter.

This resubmission adds a patronymic byname in an effort to remove any appearance of presumption.

Marquesa is a feminine given name found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Portuguese Names from Lisbon, 1565" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/portuguese/fem1565.html). The submitter prefers the spelling Markesa if it can be documented.

Manuell is a patronymic byname found in the Family Search Historical Records for Spain:

Juan Antoni Manuell; Male; Christening; 08 Mar 1575; Olot, Gerona, Spain; Batch: C89269-2

Manuell is also found as a Portuguese male given name in "Portuguese Names from the 16th Century" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/portugal16.htm)

de Carvalhal, meaning 'from a grove or forest of oaks,' is a Portuguese toponymic surname found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Portuguese Names from Lisbon, 1565" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/portuguese/fem1565.html)


25: Murtagh O'Kelly -New Name

Murtagh O'Kelly

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (12th cen. Irish) most important.
Culture (12th cen. Irish) most important.

Murtagh appears as a male given name s.n. Mortagh in "Names Found in Anglicized Irish Documents" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Masculine.shtml). The submitted spelling is dated to 1597-1602.

O'Kelly -- Ferreyagh O Kelly appears in "Names Found in Anglicized Irish Documents" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Masculine.shtml) s.n. Faraghe dated to 1583-84. Mari's article contains examples of O-style bynames both with and without apostrophes.

The submitter does not allow the creation of a holding name, which is irrelevant because he has not submitted armory.


26: Østgarðr, Crown Province of -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 1984, via the East

Award of the Seastar of Østgarðr

(Fieldless) An estoile of five rays argent

Consulting herald: Yehuda ben Moshe

SENA Appendix E.B lists "Award" as one of the standard designators for Award and Order names.

"Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/) states that heraldic charges constituted 51% of all order names, being by far the most common pattern of order names.

Sea-Star - OED s.v. sea-star lists sea starre as one of the usual period words for a starfish, first dated 1569 in this meaning. This is evidence that starfish was a European animal known in period, and therefore would be registerable as a heraldic charge under SENA A2B2b.

Although starfish have been disallowed in the past, or reblazoned as mullets and/or estoiles, the Crown Provice argues that it is a viable charge under SENA, based on evidence that the animal was known in period, and should be a valid basis for an Order name.

OED s.v. star, n.1. says that the spelling star appears from 1500s onward. Therefore, the Crown Province argues that sea star is a registerable spelling of the charge name. If necessary Crown Province will accept "sea starre" or any other spelling that gives the same sound as "sea star".

of Østgarðr -- Østgarðr, Crown Province of, is a branch name registered in April of 1984 (via the East). Under SENA, the addition of of Østgarðr clears the conflict with the heraldic title "Sea Star Pursuivant" (East, Aug 1987 LoAR).


27: Safia al-Khansaa' -New Name & New Device

Safia al-Khansaa'

Per pale sable and gules, a willow tree argent between three mullets of eight points Or

Spelling (al-Khansaa') most important.

Consulting heralds: Alys Mackyntoich and Yehuda ben Moshe

Safia is one of the alternate transliterations of a feminine ism or given name, found in "Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices" by Da'ud ibn Auda (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm).

al-Khansaa' is a byname discussed in Academy of St. Gabriel Report 2237 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2237+0), which states:

The name <al-Khansaa'> is a descriptive byname or lakab meaning "pug-nosed"; it is most famously the nickname of the 7th century Arab poet T.umaadir bint 'Amr ibn al-Haarith ibn Ash-Sharid.

The Report finds it plausible that the byname continued in use through the requester's requested time period of 1200 through 1550, and recommended its use by a female. The final apostrophe is intended to represent a hamza.

The The July 2005 Cover Letter defines willows for the purposes of SCA heraldry:

The period heraldic willow tree was the white willow (Salix alba), as shown in the canting arms of von Salis (Siebmacher, plate 204), Per fess Or and argent, a willow tree eradicated proper and two pallets gules. The emblazon matches the examples of white willows found on-line (e.g., http://www.the-tree.org.uk/BritishTrees/TreeGallery/whitewillowc.htm): the foliage takes up half the height of the full tree, and the branches have a slight droop.

This is opposed to the weeping willow (Salix babylonica), which is native to China and was brought to America as an ornamental. The weeping willow has branches with a considerable droop -- the branches are more like vines in some cases -- and the foliage reaches nearly to the ground. Despite being the willow tree most familiar to Americans (i.e. most of our submitters), it wasn't known in period Europe.

Of the willows currently registered, the majority of trees blazoned simply as "willows" are weeping willows, not white willows. In nearly every example, the foliage comes almost to the ground, or is depicted as long drooping branches, or both. This makes a difference as weeping willows get a CD from an oak or generic tree. Laurel has ruled "There is a CD between a willow tree and a standard round shaped tree, just as there is a type CD between a pine tree and a standard round shaped tree. [Aleyn More, 09/02, A-Caid]". This precedent applies to a weeping willow tree; not a willlow tree. The compiled precedents do not note that Aleyn's tree is a weeping willow tree, a fact made clear in the device's balzon.

We will follow the medieval and modern heraldic convention and use the white willow as the default willow. The registered armory with weeping willows have been reblazoned to reflect the emblazons.

Commenters are asked to discuss whether this emblazon depicts a willow or a weeping willow or something in between.


28: Togashi Kihō -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in April of 2014, via the East.

Old Item: Kashiwadebe no Hikojiro, to be retained as an alternate name.
Sound (key-hoe) most important.

Togashi is a surname meaning "become wealthy + evergreen oak" found in NCMJ (Revised edition) p. 160, listed under "Evergreen Oak" and dated to 1572.

Kihō is a constructed houmyou or Buddhist name. The initial element Ki- is in the table of "Kanji Commonly Found in Buddhist Names" in NCMJ p. 56 as a descriptive (initial) element. The final element -hō is taken from the final element of Shou'ou, a Buddhist name dating to 1600 in NCMJ p. 174 under "Sea Gull," with the reading given as "HOU." The submitter asserts that hō and hou are equivalent ways of transliterating the same Japanese sounds.

The submitted provided a copy of p. 141 of the Kamakura muromachi jinmei jiten by Motohisa Yasuda, which gives an example of Ki- used as the initial element in a Buddhist name. The submitter translated the highlighted portion as "Kisei Reigen, 1393-1488 (Meitoku4-Chōkyō 2). Zen priest of the middle Muromachi period."

According to NCMJ p. 54, when a Japanese person retired to become a lay monk or nun, "they would retain their old family name and substitute their new Buddhist name for their nanori." The submitter argues that a name constructed from a surname and a Buddhist name should be registerable.


29: Tomás an Bhogha Ó Néill -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2012, via the East

Vert, a bow reversed Or.

"an Bhogha" means "of the bow" in Gaelic, making this a nice cant.


30: Tomas O Connour -New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and argent, two bears combattant counterchanged and a chief vert

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

Consulting heralds: Sisterhood of Saint Walburga

Tomas is a masculine given name found in the Family Search Historic Records:

Tomas Isecks; Male; Christening; 1563; Saint Keyne, Cornwall, England; Batch: C05320-1
Tomas Bernsley; Male; Christening; 20 Mar 1543; Kirkburton, York, England; Batch: P00972-1

O Connour is an italicized 16th/17th cen. Anglicized Irish form found in Woulfe p. 476 s.n. Ó Conchobhair.

Please note that this device is not marshalled armory pursuant to SENA A.6.F.3.c, which says:

c. Per Pale Fields with Multiple Charge Groups: As marshalled arms using a per pale line of division were not inherited, the addition of a charge or charge group which crosses the per pale line is generally sufficient to remove the unmistakable appearance that a portion of the field is independent armory. The addition of a bordure or chief that does not itself appear to be part of two distinct original arms also removes that appearance. In general, a chief or bordure which has poor contrast with one side of the field or one that is charged so that identical charges or parts of charges appear on both sides of the line of division or bordure meets this standard.

(emphasis added).


31: Wyndriche, Canton of -New Name & New Device

Sable, a tower argent within a laurel wreath, a base indented Or

Spelling (Wyndriche) most important.

Wyndriche appears as the name of a manor granted by Edward VI of England (reign 1547-1553) at p. 5 of "Index of leases of manors and lands in England, granted since the Reformation, annis 4 and 5 Edw. 6," ed. by T. Phillipps (Google eBook) (http://books.google.com/books?id=4UJbAAAAQAAJ).

A signed petition from the officers of the Canton supporting the submitted name and device was enclosed with the submission.
