Argent, a falcon displayed head to sinister purpure vorant of a cluster of grapes bendwise and a bordure engrailed gules

Consulting Herald: Simon de Alcaçar

The submitter's name was registered on the February 2014 LoAR.

This device is a resubmission of Per pale purpure and argent, a falcon displayed head to sinister counterchanged within a bordure engrailed gules, which was returned on the February 2014 LoAR for conflict with the armory of Brennaind Mac Suibhne (Sept. 2013, Ealdormere): Per pale purpure and argent, a raven displayed counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (Roman) most important.
Spelling (Nero) most important.

Consulting herald: Alys

Titus is a praenomen found in "A Simple Guide to Imperial Roman Names" by Ursula Georges (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#praenomen).

Hostilius is a nomen found in the same article (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#nomen).

38: Trian Ó Bruadair -New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and argent, a vol and in chief a compass rose, all within a bordure counterchanged

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Consulting Herald: Harold von Auerbach

Trian is a male given name found in "100 Most Popular Men's Names in Early Medieval Ireland" by Tangwystl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/irish100.html).

The name was initially submitted as O'Bruadair, which improperly combines the Anglicized Irish O' with the Gaelic Bruadair. Blue Tyger contacted the submitter about his options, and he chose a fully Gaelic form.

Ó Bruadair is a header form in Woulfe p. 446. Under this header is the 16th/17th cen. Anglicized Irish form O Broder. The existence of a late period Anglicized form suggests that the Gaelic header form continued in use.

In addition, Bruadar is a Middle Irish male given name, with this spelling found in the raw data s.n. Bruatur in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Bruatur.shtml), with relevant Annals dates of 809, 851, 852, 860, 893, 895, 899, 935 and 981.

While Trian Ua Bruadair would be a wholly Middle Gaelic form, the submitted Trian Ó Bruadair should be registerable.

Please note the following precedent on compass roses:

A compass rose has been ruled to be a registerable charge, as it was known in period on maps even though it was not used in period heraldry. Compass roses on maps were a variety of colors, frequently with eight or sixteen rays of alternating colors, combined with a thin outer ring. The center was commonly pierced or had a separate decorative motif. Given the variety in period compass roses, we see no restriction in a compass roses with rays differently tinctured than the outer ring; however, given the usual prominence the directional rays have over the outer ring, a compass rose's tincture will be defined by the tincture of the rays, with the tincture of the outer ring considered a blazonable artistic detail. Piercing, as usual, will be considered the equivalent of a tertiary charge.

[Pietro Francesco dei Scalzi, 10/2012 LoAR, A-Atenveldt]

The word Wahnsinnig is documented to 15-16C in the Brother's Grimm (http://woerterbuchnetz.de/DWB/?sigle=DWB&mode=Vernetzung&lemid=GW02568). SENA Appendix A states that descriptive bynames are found in German, usually without an article.

Commentary on the proper construction and plausibility of the byname would be appreciated.
