East ILoI dated 2015-10-31

Greetings unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World!

This letter includes the third and final batch of Pennsic submissions, as well submissions received after Pennsic. There are a few Pennsic submssion with administrative problems left, those will be placed on Letters as problems are resolved.

Commentary on this letter will close on November 30, 2015.

1: Aharon ben Zach -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Keep the first name as) most important.

Aharon is found cited in Mainz, Germany dated 1096 in Juetta Copin's "Names of Jewish Men, 6th to 11th Centuries" (http://s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/masc/aharon.ht)

ben Zach - Zach is found as a masculine given name in "Jews in Catalonia: 1250 to 1400 - Men's Given Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/catalanjews/CatalanJews-given-men.html#alpha)

The pattern ben B meaning 'son of B' for men is found in Appendix A for Jewish names.

Appendix C states: "Jewish names documented from location X are registerable with (1) other names documented from the languages for that language group and (2) with other Jewish names documented from other parts of Europe."

The form states that most important is "Sound: Keep the first name as". We can only assume that the desire is to keep the name as close in sound as the submitted name. Will try to contact submitter for clarification.


2: Amis Mwyn -Resub Device

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

Or, a saltire azure fretted of a mascle gules, a bordure sable

The submitter's original device, Or, a saltire azure fretted of a mascle gules, was returned on the April 2010 LoAR (R-East) with the following explanation:

This device conflicts with the badge of the Midrealm's Award of the Purple Fret, Or, a fret purpure. There is a single CD for the change of tincture of the primary charge. The charge here is visually equivallent to a fret, which is "a bend and a bend sinister fretted of a mascle." The only difference is some internal detailing.

The bordure has been added in an effort to clear the conflict.


3: Brandr nefsbrjotr Aronsson -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in March of 2016, via the East.

Old Item: Cian Mac Fhearghuis, to be released.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Brandr the nose breaker, son of Aron) most important.

Brandr is in Geirr Bassi, pg. 9, as a male given name

nefsbrjotr is a constructed form meaning "nosebreaker." In August 2008, we registered rifsbrjótr (rib breaker) on the basis of the variety of things that were "broken" in bynames. Geirr Bassi, pg 26, gives 'Nefr' as nose and Cleasby-Vigfusson's Icelandic-English Dictionary (s.v. brójtr) where brjótr is stated to mean breaker. This uses the genitive form of the first element, as with the registered name.

Aron is in Geirr Bassi, pg. 7, as a male given name. Geirr Bassi does not given the genitive form for this name, but the SMP, vol I, s.n. Aron, lists a <Marcus Aronson> in 1414, so the patronymic earlier is also probably Aronsson.


4: Ceolwenne wyrhte -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2015, via the East

Per pale argent and gules, a triquetra between two cats cadent counterchanged

The submitter blazoned the cats as "cadent" based on a Wikipedia article that apparently no longer exists. Assistance is requested blazoning the cats.

5: Charlotte Orr -New Name & New Device

Quarterly argent and sable, a hedgehog statant guardant gules

Charlotte is found in Triste Elliot's, "16th century Norman Names" [http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/norman16.html] lists Charlotte as a feminine given name in Rouen, 16th c.

Orr is a gray-period English surname found in the Family Search Historical Records:

Eilene Orr, Burial, Female, Jun 1604, St. Mary, Barton-Upon-Humbler, Lincoln,

England, Batch #B02594-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J8Y4-72K)

SENA Appendix C allows combining English and French elements.


6: Constancia de Vianne -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a crossbow bendwise sinister and on a chief argent five neumes inverted sable

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language (Occitan 14th cen.) most important.
Culture (Occitan 14th cen.) most important.

Constancia is a female given name found in "Names from Fourteenth Century Foix" by Cateline de la Mor (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/foix.html) s.n. 'Constance' The location and typography indicates that the submitted spelling is the Occitan form.

The byname de Vianne is a locative byname; Vianne" is a subordinate header form s.n. Viane, and it's dated as "Veiana" to 1358. Unfortunately, Pennsic Herald's Point did not write down the source for this information.

'Vianne' is the name of a town in Gascony, which existed in 1284, according to "New Towns of the Middle Ages" by Maurice Beresford. Ulric von der Insel owns the source and can provide docs.


7: Hasanah bint al-Khalil ibn Habib -New Household Name

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

Erlendsstaðir

This is a joint household name with Ingvar Thorsteinsson.

The submitter's primary name appears on the September 2015 East Kingdom ILoI.

Academy of Saint Gabriel report 3279 (http://s-gabriel.org/f3279.txt) gives "staðir" 'stead' as a homestead designator combined with given names. It says in part " A majority of these were named after individuals, for example <Egilsstaðir> 'Egill's stead(s)', and far more were named for men than for women."

Erlendr is found as a masculine name at p. 9 of Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, The Old Norse Name. Dropping the terminal -r and adding -s forms the genitive/possessive, as is required grammatically.

The pattern of creating place names from the genitive form of given names + -staðir is found in "Place-Names in Landnámabók," by Talan Gwynek (http://my.stratos.net/~bmscott/Landnamabok_Place-Names.html)

Nicolae is found once dated to 1599-1600 in "Names from the Royal Lines of Moldavia and Wallachia" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/other/romanian.html Muteanu)

The registration of Casa de la Muntea in January 2014 said: "While we cannot be certain this is a properly formed Romanian household name, the evidence presented is sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt and register the name. Muntea appears to be a given name dated to 1422 and commenters found evidence that appears to document Casa de la X where X is a given name. However, each of those identifications is tentative, and is allowed only because our evidence for period Romanian names is so poor."

Muntea is a given name dated to 1443 in Document 229, p.322 of Documenta Romaniae Historica. Seria A : Moldova. Volumul 01 : 1384-1448 (http://digitool.dc.bmms.ro:8881/R/VE8FBVNIIKIFUGRQS1IB1RPBRXBK2LPNKYQIEFMA8FMDNBRQCC-00573?func=resu lts-jump-full&set_entry=000015&set_number=005004&base=GEN01)

Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Names from the Royal Lines of Moldavia and Wallachia" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/other/romanian.html) gives -eanu as a form creating patronymic bynames. The submitter would prefer Muntean if it could be documented, but will settle for Munteanu based on this article.


24: Nicole la bouchiere -New Name & New Device

Per pale argent and azure, a meat cleaver bendwise sinister counterchanged

Occupational bynames generally match the gender of the given name - for example, Famète la poissonière and Guermont le poissonier.

26: Osc of the Harbours -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2015, via the East

Argent, five geese migrant in chevron sable above in base a torteau.

Returned on the April LOAR:

Osc of the Harbours. Device. Argent, in chevron five geese migrant to chief sable and in base a torteau.

This device is returned for redraw, for blurring the distinction between the primary and secondary charge groups. Because they are of similar visual weights, the geese and the torteau appear to be in the same charge group, in an unblazonable arrangement. The best solution would likely be to draw the geese slightly larger and reduce the size of the torteau.

There is a step from period practice for the use of migrant birds.

This resubmission reduces the size of the torteau to make it clearly a secondary charge.


27: Piers Campbell -New Acceptance of Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1993, via the East

Clan Campbell of Applecross

The household name Campbell of Applecross, Clan was registered to "Tomasz Tomashevskoi" and "Piers Campbell" in March of 2007 (via the East).
