East ILoI dated 2014-09-26

Fair greetings and goodwill unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World,

This letter contains the second batch of Pennsic submissions. Commentary will close at the end of the day on October 31, 2014.

Over the course of recent letters, I have seen far more artistic critiques about armory than useful commentary about period style or conflicts issues. Due to limited resources for redraws, submissions will not be returned (or redrawn) unless the artistic issue seriously impairs identifiability, depicts the charge non-period manner, or creates a question about whether it is counted for conflict purposes. While easy to make, the artistic critiques frequently distract from the urgently necessary comments regarding period style and conflict issues. Please try to focus commentary about the artistic quality of submissions on the issues that affect registerability.

Of course, commentary on period style and conflict issues is always welcome and much needed.

Ever your servant,

Alys Blue Tyger

1: Alan of Wytleseie -New Name & New Device

Azure, a winged sagittary statant and a chief argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for England.
Sound (Al-ann of Wit-ill-see) most important.

Alan is an English male given name found in "English Names found in Brass Enscriptions" by Julian Goodwyn (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/brasses/men.html) dated to 1432.

Wytleseie is a dated spelling found in Watts s.n. Whittlesey, which has <Wi- Wytleseia -eie -eya -ey(e) -e> c. 1120-1553


2: Alasdar Sparhauec -New Name & New Device

Argent, a triskelion of spirals and on a chief sable a fox courant to sinister reguardant argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Alasdair, Alisdair, Alastair, Alistair (like that)) most important.

Submitted as Alasdair Sparhauoc, that name would have been unregisterable because there were more than 500 years between the elements. Blue Tyger had detailed conversations with the submitter following Pennsic and was able to help him pick a form of the name that should be registerable.

Alasdar is a Gaelic male name dated to 1465 in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Alaxandar.shtml). The raw data shows mac Alasdair, which makes Alasdair the genitive and Alasdar the probable nominative form.

Sparhauec is an English byname dated to 1172 in the Middle English Dictionary s.n. spar-hauk (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED41977&egs=all&egdisplay=compact).

Gaelic and English can be combined under Appendix C of SENA, but there must be less than 300 years between the name elements. This name just squeaks by with less than 300 years between 1465 and 1172.


3: Alexander Makcristyne -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2005, via the East

(Fieldless) In pale a cauldron argent conjoined to two schneckes couped addorsed azure.


4: Amber Surrey -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1987, via the East

Or, in pale a quill pen purpure conjoined to ink pot between in bend sinister two cats sejant respectant sable


5: Andreiko Eferiev -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2009, via the East

Gules, a cloud sable.

Clouds have been registered before, using this depiction. For example: http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=34399

The use of a black charge on red field is common in German heraldry. See, for example:

Siebermacher plate 50, arms of Kreidelwitz (http://www.wappenbuch.de/pages/wappen_50_Siebmacher.htm)

Plate 53, arms of Gaffron: (http://www.wappenbuch.de/pages/wappen_52_Siebmacher.htm)

Plate 72, arms of Stossel (http://www.wappenbuch.de/pages/wappen_72_Siebmacher.htm)

Plate 80, arms of Tobel (http://www.wappenbuch.de/pages/wappen_80_Siebmacher.htm)

This should be enough to support an IAP provided clouds were used as charges in German heraldry.

While nebuly is common in German heraldry (see Siebermacher plates 26, 79, 184, 193), the submitter did not provide evidence of a cloud as a distinct charge in German heraldry. Commenters are asked for help locating such use.


6: Baron Francesco Gaetano Greco d'Edessa -Resub Badge

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

(Fieldless) On a mantle per chevron ployé azure and Or, in chief a pearled coronet argent.

The submitter is a Court Baron (granted on 4/12/2008) and entitled to display a pearled coronet.

This is a resubmission of (Fieldless) A mitre Or banded argent issuant from a coronet Or, which was returned on the February 2014 LoAR for presumption, as the use of a mitre implies ecclesiatic rank. The present submission is a complete redesign.

Correction to Badge (2014-Oct-13 18:10:53): The name was registered as Francesco Gaetano Greco d'Edessa


7: Beccán Ua Néill -New Name & New Device

Ua is the Middle Irish marker for a Clan Affiliation style byname. "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" by Sharon Krossa (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#spelling).

8: Bregwald Tertius -New Name & New Device

Gules, a dragon couchant argent, on a chief Or three mullets gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

The submitter would prefer Bregwald Tertius if it could be documented. He will settle for (in order of preference): Bregwald Tertii, Bregwald Tertio, Bregwald filius Tertii, Bregwald filius (some other Latinized form).

This name combines an Old English given name and a possibly Frankish byname; this is an allowable lingual mix under SENA Appendix C.

Bregwald is found as a masculine given name in PASE (http://www.pase.ac.uk) in 716; it is both the documentary and the header form.

Tertio is a variant header form found in Morlet Vol II, p. 111, s.n. Tercio, with the spelling Tercio dated to 845. Pennsic Herald's Point could not directly document Tertius. Assistance is requested.

Correction to Name (2014-Oct-28 22:10:46): The submitter has requested authenticity for an unspecified time period.


9: Caitilín ingen Donndubáin -New Name & New Device

Vert, eight roses three, three, and two Or and on a chief argent an arrow fesswise reversed purpure.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Caitlín) most important.

10: Ceolwenne wyrhte -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in February of 2015, via the East.

Old Item: Ceolwenne of Endeweard, to be released.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Ceolwenne is grandfathered to the submitter.

wyrhte is a constructed Old English byname derived from the word wyrhte, which appears in Bosworth Toller's Anglo Saxon dictionary as a feminine word meaning "maker, worker." The masculine word becomes a Middle English byname (R&W s.n. wright), with the first citation dated to 1214. The MED s.v. wright(e) adds an 1103-5 "Spilemanus brandwirchte," pushing it back to essentially Old English.".


11: Christina Jenevra de Carvalhal -Resub Name & Resub Device

Paly argent and sable, on a chief triangular azure a closed book Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

This is a resubmission. The submitter's original name, Marquesa de Carvalhal, was returned on the June 2011 LoAR because the given name Marquesa is also a Spanish title meaning 'marchioness' (the feminine form of marquis). Under PN.4.B.1, "Given names that are identical to titles and forms of address may be registered in contexts that make it clear that they are given names and not titles".

She resubmitted as Marquesa Manuell de Carvalhal, but withdrew that name from consideration at Pennsic.

Christina is a female given name found in the Family Search Historical Records:

Christina De Rego Death Female 15 Jan 1591 Bombarral, Leiria, Portugal B03042-9

Jenevra is a female given name found s.n. Genebra in "Portuguese Names from Lisbon, 1565" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/portuguese/fem1565.html)

Appendix A is silent on whether double given names are found in Portuguese. Assistance in finding data to confirm this pattern is requested. If support for this pattern cannot be found, the submitter prefers that Christina be dropped.

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)

Correction to Name (2014-Oct-03 01:10:23): Clarification: This name was submitted at Pennsic as Janebra de Carvalhal with the requests that: (1) Janebra be changed to Jenevra if that spelling could be documented and (2) the name be changed to Christina Jenevra de Carvalhal if double given names could be documented in Portuguese. As we were able to find additional documentation to fulfill these requests after Pennsic, we have honored the submitter's wishes.

Correction to Name (2014-Oct-03 01:10:34): The submitter cares about language/culture Portuguese 1475-1540.

Her previous submission, Azure, in pale an owl, wings displayed, sustaining an open book proper, on a chief engrailed argent three laurel wreaths vert was returned on the June 2011 LoAR for using a laurel wreath, a charge reserved for use by SCA groups.

This is a complete redesign.


12: Cillene O Caollaidhe -New Name & New Device

Argent, a butterfly volant contourny bendwise sinister wings addorsed purpure within an orle of trefoils vert

Sound (Sound: Sue Leen Kelly) most important.

Cilléne is an Old Irish male name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Cillene.shtml) dated to the 8th and early 9th centuries. According to OCM, it is also a saint's name.

Ó Caollaidhe is a header form in Woulfe at p. 451. This entry gives several italicized Anglicized Irish forms dated to the late 16th and early 17th centuries. This is generally sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt that the Gaelic header form is registerable.

Gaelic names can be registered without accents as long as the accents are omitted throughout.


13: Damian Godeshelp -New Name & New Device

Sable, a sledgehammer fesswise reversed and a point pointed argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

Demetrios is a masculine given name found in "Early 14th Century Byzantine Names of Macedonia" by Maridonna Benvenuti (http://www.maridonna.com/onomastics/macedonia.htm). The submitter would prefer the spelling Demetrio if it can be documented. We were unable to do so with the resources at Pennsic Herald's Point.

Antelini is a surname found in "Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names" by Talan Gwynek and Arval Benicoeur (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14sur.html#table).

15: Drogo Bryce of Middlefordshire -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2011, via the East

Gules, a calygreyhound's head cabossed Or.

The submitter's previous device, Quarterly azure and vert, a calygreyhound rampant guardant argent, was returned on the East Kingdom's March 2011 LoD. This is a complete redesign.

Please discuss the following potential conflicts:

(1) Badge of Eoin Mac Cannigh (May 1996, An Tir): Gules, a stag's head caboshed Or between the attires a coney couchant argent; and

(2) Badge of Claude de la Beche (July 1986, Middle): Vairy argent and gules, a stag's head cabossed Or.

Pennsic Herald's Point took the position that there should be a DC between stag's head and calygreyhound's head. Please discuss.

Correction to Device (2014-Oct-05 12:10:18): This device should be accompanied by a change of primary name from Drogo Bryce of Middlefordshire to Mega Zenjirou Yoshi. The name change appears on a supplemental ILoI issued on Oct. 5, 2014.
