Old Item: Barry wavy argent and gules, a roundel checky Or and sable, to be retained as a badge.

Consulting herald: Mithgiladan

No line drawn version was provided for this submission. Only a single, colored-in form was submitted.Normally, this would be grounds for the submission not being placed on an iLoI. Fortunately for the submitter, as his device is entirely black and white, we are able to process this submission.

The relevant portion of the Administrative Handbook, section IV.C.1, was amended on the May 2013 LoAR cover letter (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/05/13-05cl.html#8) to read: "A minimum of one set of black-and-white armory forms is required for all armory: the one to be maintained in kingdom files. Black-and-white generally means "coloring book style" or "line drawing", though black portions may be colored in. "

I would like to remind submitters and consulting heralds that a line-art version is generally preferred and request that even black-and-white designs be accompanied by line-art versions.

32: Lupold Hass -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of September 08, 2014 as submitted.

Azure, a hare salient bendwise argent

Consulting Herald: Andreas von Meißen

This device is a resubmission of Per pale azure and sable, a hare courant argent, which was returned on the December 2014 LoAR for conflict with the device of Matilda Bosville de Bella Aqua (Dec. 1991, East): Per fess embattled gules and argent ermined azure, in chief a coney courant argent.

33: Orlando Sforza -New Name & New Device

Sable, a winged lion maintaining a sword and on a chief embattled Or three crosses crosslet fitchy gules

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Italian) most important.
Culture (Italian) most important.

Orlando is a male given name appearing in "Names in 15th Century Florence and her Dominions: the Condado," by Juliana de Luna (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/condado/mensalpha.html)

Sforza/Sfortia appears as a family name in "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Florence" by Juliana de Luna (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Florence.shtml)

Precedent from the July 1997 LoAR holds the byname Sforza to be presumptuous:

The surname Sforza is one of those names such as Hohenstaufen which are so closely associated with a single sovereign royal family as to be presumptuous in their use. Indeed, in times past it was one of those that were used as an exemplar for that category of restricted names. (The name of the dynasty was derived from the nickname of its founder and in period was associated closely with the immediate family of the sovereign Dukes of Milan.) The use of the Sforza surname is tantamount to a claim to being from the immediate family of the sovereign Dukes of Milan and is not allowed under RFS VI.1.

However, the submitter believes that new evidence exists to warrant overturning this precedent. Sforza was used in period as a given name as well as a surname, most notably as the given name of Sforza degli Oddi (also called Sforza d'Oddi and Sforza Oddi), a Perugian author of numerous 16th cen. works, including:

I morti viui comedia, del molto eccellente signore Sforza d'Oddi, nell'Accademia de gli Insensati, detto il Forsennato (1597) (https://books.google.com/books?id=iRAeNBDRQdcC)

Prigione d'amore commedia nuoua dell'eccellentissimo signor Sforza Oddi. Recitata in Pisa da scolari l'anno secondo del felice rettorato del signor Lelio Gauardo asolano (1596) (https://books.google.com/books?id=SdyxgpIKBvkC)

In addition, Cardinal Pietro Sforza Pallavicino (1607-1667) used the element Sforza despite being descended from the Marchese family of Parma, not the Sforza family of Milan (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11426a.htm).

Since Italian allows for unmarked patronymics, Orlando Sforza could be "Orlando, son of Sforza," not exclusively "Orlando of the Sforza family."

If Orlando Sforza cannot be registered, the submitter will accept Orlando dela Spada. dela Spada is an Italian byname found in "15th & 16th Century Names from Trieste" by Maridonna Benvenuti (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/maridonna/trieste.html) dated 1435-36.


34: Orlando Sforza -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) A cross crosslet fitchy Or


35: Rauða-Sunnifa refr -New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2013, via the East

Sorcha ni Cathasaigh

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Consulting herald: Eleazar ha-Levi

Sorcha is a female given name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Sorcha" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Sorcha.shtml) dated to 1480, 1500, 1530

Cathasaigh is the genitive form of a Early Modern Gaelic male given name being used to construct a patronymic byname found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Cathassach / Cathasach" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Cathassach.shtml)

Alys Ogress, peeking over Charitye Diademe's shoulder during data entry, notes: Though submitted as ni Cathasaigh, this is not a period Gaelic form. Ni is a contraction of inghean Uí that did not come into use until after 1600. See Sharon Krossa's "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#niandnic). The period form is inghean Uí Chathasaigh, using the right particles and adding the required lenition.

The submitter has been consulted and she consented to a change to Sorcha inghean Uí Chathasaigh.



OSCAR counts 8 Names, 1 Alternate Name, 9 Devices, 3 Device Changes and 17 Badges. There are 3 releases. There are a total of 41 items submitted on this letter.
