East ILoI dated 2015-04-02

Greetings to the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Knowne Worlde from Alys Blue Tyger.

This letter contains the submissions received from February 28, 2015 through March 28, 2015. Commentary closes on this letter at midnight on May 2, 2015.

I am pleased to announce that the June 2015 ILoI will be my last one as Blue Tyger Herald. After a little over three years in the office, I will be retiring. Lord Yehuda ben Moshe will be taking over as Blue Tyger. Please be at least as helpful to him as you have been to me, if not moreso :-)

7: Brochmail de Anglespur -New Name & New Device

Per chevron inverted counter-ermine and vert, a lymphad and an acorn slipped and leaved Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (8th-13th cen. Welsh with locative byname) most important.
Culture (8th-13th cen. Welsh with locative byname) most important.

Consulting Herald: SCA Heraldry Chat on Facebook

Brochmail is a male given name found in the Book of Llandav, according to "The First Thousand Years of British Names" by Tangwystel verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/british1000/appendix4_5.html). It appears to be a 9th century name.

Anglespur is a local group name. Anglespur, Shire of was registered in May of 1981 (via the East).

The submitter wants de Anglespur. However, SENA PN1.B.2.f states:

Name phrases may be created from the registered forms of SCA branches. Only the exact registered form of the branch name may be used, and they are registered in the lingua Anglica form, 'of Branchname'.

Translated forms will not be registered under this allowance, even if it matches the intended origin of the submission or of the branch.

For example, this would allow the bynames of the East or of Fontaine dans Sable, as these are the expected lingua Anglica forms. However, this would not allow von Osten as a German translation of "of the East", even if the given name was German. It would also not allow de la Fontaine dans Sable as a fully French version of "of Fontaine dans Sable" under this rule as it is not the lingua Anglica form of the branch name, even though the branch name is French. If Fontaine dans Sable can also documented as an attested or constructed French name, de Fontaine dans Sable could be used in forming a fully French name; however that would not be through the use of the branch name allowance.

Assistance therefore is requested documenting Anglespur in a way that is consistent with the 9th cen. Welsh given name Brochmail. Otherwise, the name will have to be changed to Brochmail of Anglespur pursuant to the above-quoted section of SENA.

Correction to Name (2015-Apr-21 19:04:30): Despite having checked "no major changes," the submitter specifically agreed to accept a change to Brochmail of Anglespur if necessary for registration, in an April 21, 2015 e-mail with Blue Tyger.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1973,

Order of the Golden Lance of the East

Submitter has no desire as to gender.

Consulting herald: Ryan Brigantia

This order name follows the pattern of [heraldic color] + [heraldic charge] <charge>, found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/ListingOfStandardForms.html).

Golden -The OED, s.n. Golden, dates this spelling to 1552 and 1398 (respectively for definitions 3 and 1) with intended meaning. The adjective Golden has been used the Order of the Golden Rapier and Order of the Golden Mantle, both registered to the East Kingdom.

Lance - The OED, s.n. Lance, dates this spelling to 1473. A lance is a heraldic charge. The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry under spear (http://mistholme.com/dictionary/spear/) states: "Also common in period armory is the "tilting spear", also called a "lance" or "tourney spear", characterized by its bell-shaped hand guard above the handle. Its most famous period example is the canting arms of Shakespeare, granted 1596 [Wagner 73]."

of the East - East, Kingdom of the was registered in January of 1973. Adding of the East to this name clears conflict with other registered Orders of the Golden Lance under SENA NPN.3.D.

The Kingdom of the East signed the Golden Lance Treaty on 3/28/2015.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2010, via the East

Per saltire azure and sable, a quatrefoil and a bordure ermine

The submitter's original device, Per saltire azure and sable, a quatrefoil argent, was returned on the July 2010 LoAR for conflict with the device of Titus of Wormwood, Purpure, a cinquefoil slipped and singly leaved argent.

23: Seosamh an Crúca Ó Máille -New Name Change

Old Item: Seosamh Tadhg an Crúca O'Maille, to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.

The given name Seosamh and the descriptive byname an Crúca are grandfathered to the submitter.

Ó Máille is a header form in Woulfe at p. 594. There are several italicized 16th/17th cen. Anglicized Irish forms under this header, including <O Mally>, which is enough to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt that the Gaelic header form was used in the same time period.

The submitter is most interested in shutting Alys up about fixing the grammar of his name after 25 years. :-)


24: Urrāka al­-Tha'labii -Resub Device

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

Per bend Or and sable semy of oak leaves counterchanged, a magpie proper and a fox courant to sinister base argent
