2: Bridge, Barony of the -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1979, via the East

Order of Kid

Azure, a goat statant argent atop a bezant

This order name follows the pattern of Orders named after a person, identified in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/). The May 2011 LoAR states that "[a] given name can be used to create an order name (one named after a founder or inspiration)." [Order of Taillefer, 5/2011 LoAR, A-Lochac].

Kid is an English given name:

Kid Grymes; Male; Marriage; 20 May 1609; St Mary, Hitchin, Hertford, England, Batch Number: M07248-2 (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NLSG-63G)

For conflicts checking purposes, note that there is a DC between a sheep and a goat per the May 2014 LoAR.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1979, via the East

Order of Alcantara of the Bridge

Azure, in pale a keystone argent and a doubly-arched bridge Or

This Order Name is based on the pattern of naming orders after place names, found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/).

Alcantara is a place name dated to 1479 in CORDE in Instrucciones de don Fernando a don Felipe de Castro, embajador del reino de Aragón

Order of Alcantara was one of the Spanish military religious orders, described in 1629 book, Historia de las Ordenes militares de Santiago, Calatrava y Alcantara (http://books.google.com/books?id=bcakh-vbie8C).

The Barony has added "of the Bridge" to remove any appearance of presumption on the real-world military order.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1979, via the East

Order of the Lotus

The OED dates lotus as (among other things) the "water-lily of Egypt and Asia, Nymphæa Lotus (and other species), and Nelumbium speciosum" to Lotos as 1584 and Lotus to 1601. While we do not know that the charge itself is period, the plant/flower itself was clearly known to Europeans.

The submitter's original name submission, David Erbe von Bärau was returned on the May 2007 LoAR with the following explanation:

No documentation was submitted and none found to suggest that the town of Bärau was found in period or that the submitted spelling was used in period. Barring such documentation, this name is not registerable. We cannot drop this element in order to register the name because David Erbe is the submitter's legal name.

His device and badge were registered under the holding name David of Carillion.

Although submitted at Pennsic as a "Name Change" this is actually a "Change of Holding Name."

(http://books.google.com/books?id=N-ZEAAAAcAAJ&q=Schaidegg). This supports the construction of the surname phrase von Schaidegg per Appendix A of SENA.

The arms Per pale fleury-counter-fleury vert crusilly couped and argent, in sinister a bear rampant sable were registered under the holding name David of Carillion on the May 2007 LoAR.

15: Gwenhwyfar atte Lake -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of October 22, 2013 as submitted.

Azure, an owl volant guardant contourny and a base engrailed argent.

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

Her prior device, Azure, an owl volant guardant and a base engrailed argent, was returned on the January 2014 LoAR for conflict with the device of Arianwen ferch Lawen: Azure, a swallow volant within a bordure embattled argent. The LoAR explained:

There is a DC for the change in type of the secondary charge. While typically we grant a DC between swallows and owls, that DC depends on them both being in well-drawn period postures for those types of birds. Neither Arianwen's nor Gwenhwyfar's birds are in a typical period depiction of volant; the owl here has its wings swept back, nearly blending with the body, not spread as expected. The head is well-drawn, but the head alone here is not enough to grant the necessary DC.

The submitter has changed the orientation of the owl to clear the conflict with Arianwen.

28: Novella Soranzo -Resub Device

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

Per chevron ermine and counter-ermine, a pair of stag's attires and a bee proper.

Her previous device submission, Per chevron ermine and erminois, in chief a pair of stag's attires proper and in base a bee proper, was returned by Laurel on the Dec 2013 LoAR for inadequate contrast between the mostly-metal bee proper and the erminois field.

Changing the previously erminois portion of the field to counter-ermine resolves the reason for return.


29: Novella Soranzo -Resub Badge

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

(Fieldless) A bee proper attired of stag's antlers proper.

Her initial badge, (Fieldless) A bee rising proper horned of brown antlers proper was returned on the August 2013 Eastern LoD because the posture of the bee was not registerable. By precedent, "[r]ising is not a defined posture for insects. These bees are seen in profile with their wings addorsed and their bodies hovering in intermediate postures between bendwise and palewise. Their posture cannot be blazoned, and therefore, this device must be returned." [Patrick Olsson, 10/2002 LoAR, R-Æthelmearc]. In addition, commenters found the antlers unidentifiable.

The submitter has redrawn the bee in the standard tergiant posture.


30: Novella Soranzo -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) A cartwheel sable charged with a bottle bendwise Or.


31: Novella Soranzo -Resub Badge

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

(Fieldless) In saltire two arrows proper fletched vert and overall a ball of yarn gules.

The prior iteration of this badge, (Fieldless) A ball of yarn gules pierced by two maintained arrows in saltire proper headed argent fletched sable and Or, was returned by Laurel on the Dec 2013 LoAR for conflict with multiple non-SCA entities, including Japan. The ball was ruled to be equivalent to a roundel and the maintained arrows did not contribute to difference.

This redraw has the arrows much larger as befits primary charges. We believe this resolves the problem in the return.


32: Pipa Blackwood -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (PIP-a BLACK-wood) most important.

Pipa is a female given name found in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyHZ.html) s.n. Pipa, dated to 1260.

Blackwood is a surname found in Hitching & Hitching, References to English Surnames in 1601 and 1602 at p. xxiii


33: Qudu of the Taiga -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Old Item: Yngvarr Ottuson, to be released.

Khudu is found in "Mongolian Naming Practices" by Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html). Marta's article shows several examples of 'Kh' and 'Q' being used interchangeably. For example: "Khabichi (Qabiji)"; "Khabul (Qabal)"; "Khaji Kulug (Qaji Kulug)"; "Khajigin (Qajigin)" The submitter therefore believes that Qudu is a fair rendering of the name.

Taiga is the high northern woodlands; it is the modern name for the place. The submitter believes it to be a period term, and registerable under the Lingua Anglica allowance. Yep, that's all Pennsic Herald's Point gave us. Commenters?

If the College is unable to document of the Taiga as a byname, the submitter is willing to accept of the Steppes as an alternative. This byname is documentable via the Branch Name Allowance: Steppes, Barony of the was registered in October of 1976 via Atenveldt.


34: Riocard Docair -New Device

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

Argent, a bull's head cabossed gules attired and in chief a pair of shackles conjoined by a length of chain sable.


35: Sarukê thugadêr Êlmanos -New Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Vert, a unicorn and in chief three trilliums inverted argent

Old Item: Galle Amsel, to be released.
Old Item: Vert estoilly, a triquetra between two enfields rampant addorsed and a stag lodged argent, to be released.
Submitter has no desire as to gender.
Sound (The submitter cares that the number of syllables remains 3-3-3.) most important.

Sarukê is found in "Greek Names with Scytho-Sarmatian Roots" by Ursula Georges (http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/iranianroots.html) under the list of Feminine Names.

thugadêr means "daughter (of)" according to the same article.
