OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of November 30, 2015 as submitted.

Consulting Herald: Matilda Wynter

The original submission Per pale azure and sable, a cockatrice erect argent was returned in the Feburary 2016 LoAR for conflict with the device of Genevieve de Lyonesse: Per saltire azure and sable, a cockatrice statant argent.

House of le Taverner follows the household name pattern [byname & Inn/House]

Per Collected Name Resources from LoARs (2010-present) Articles from Juliana de Luna and Lillia de Vaux "One popular kind of household names are the so called inn-sign names, derived from the names of charges used on signs found on inns and other buildings. These names take forms like House of the White Horse, Haus zum Wolf, or Hostel du Croissant. These types of names are found only in certain parts of Europe, and thus are only registerable in those places where this pattern is found. The pattern is known in English, French, Italian, and German"

The spelling boar is found in Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, Act II, scene 2: "Eight wild-boars roasted whole at a breakfast, and but twelve persons there; is this true?"

15: East, Kingdom of the -New Badge

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

Sable, a mullet of four points elongated to base, a bordure embattled argent

This submission is to be associated with the East Kingdom's Northern Army

Consulting Herald: Matilda Wynter

This badge conflicts with the device of Anna af Aarnimetsä, aka Anna Tuomaantytär von Urwald, Sable, a mullet and a base wavy argent registered in April 1997 via Drachenwald. A letter of permission to conflict is attached. The letter reads:

I, [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Anna Tuomaantytär von Urwald, give THE KINGDOM OF THE EAST, permission for their armory "Sable a mullet of four points elongated to base and a border embattled argent" to look similar to, but not identical to, my aromory, "Sable a mullet and a base wavy argent". I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once THE KINGDOM OF THE EAST's armory is registered.

In Lulea

22nd of August 2016 [sic]

[Signed with legal name]

[legal name redacted]

This badge also with the badge of Alexander Hostilius of Caid, aka Alexander Æthelwulfes sunu, Sable, a mullet of four points gules fimbriated within a bordure embattled Or registered in August 2013 via Caid. A letter of permission to conflict is attached. The letter reads:

I, [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Alexander Hostilius of Caid (also known as Alexander Æthelwulfes sunu) hereby give the Kingdom of the East, permission for their badge "Sable, a mullet of four points elongated to base and a bordure embattled argent" to look similar to, but not identical to, my armory "Sable, a mullet of four points gules fimbriated within a bordure embattled argent." I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once the Kingdom of the East's badge is registered.

[Legal Signature]

Dated 5/31/2016

We believe this badge does not conflict with the populace badge of the Kingdom of Meridies, Sable, a mullet within a saltire voided argent registered in May of 1983 via Meridies. Although based on the blazon it appears to be a technical conflict, with a single DC for the change of type of the secondary charge group, we believe that the Meridian badge is not blazoned correctly. Rather, we believe it is a primary saltire with a secondary mullet, and is therefore well clear of this badge.

However, a letter of permission to conflict with the Kingdom of Meridies is attached. The letter reads:

We, [Legal name], known in the SCA as Adhemar de Rouen and [Legal name], known in the SCA as Elina de Rouen, as Kingd and Queen of the Kingdom of Meridies, upon consultation with Our Kingdom Seneschal and Beacon Principal Herald, hereby give the Kingdom of the East, permission for their badge "Sable, a mullet of four points elongated to base and a bordure embattled argent" to look similar to, but not identical to, Our armory, "Sable, a mullet within a saltire voided argent." I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once the Kingdom of the East's badge is registered

[Legal Signature] dated 7/24/2016

[Legal Signature] dated 7/24/2016

(note: the [Legal Name] blocks are not filled in with the legal names, but legal signatures do appear at the bottom).


16: Eloise of Coulter -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1990, via the East.

Consulting Herald: Tanczos Istvan

A coulter a vertical cutting blade affixed in front of a plowshare. The submitter has provided documentation for a coulter as a period artifact (images below).

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:

17: Erdene Qadajin -New Name & New Device

Gyronny wavy of six Or and gules, a mountain argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Jewel of the Cliff) most important.

Erdene is a given name meaning "jewel" found in "On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names." (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/baras-aghur/mongolian.html) by Baras-aghur Nara

Per the Article named above, "The Mongols did not use surnames. Therefore for purposes of submission, refer to the Compleat Anachronist #54, wherein is stated that the second element of most Mongol names is an epitet relating to the first name or personal characteristics, or clan identification."

Qadajin is a constructed byname based on the root Qadan meaning "cliff" and Jin/Chin, a suffix found in "On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names." (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/baras-aghur/mongolian.html) by Baras-aghur Nara.

The n+d pattern provides several names with one root. Examples of this are the Mongol word for iron is 'temur'. From this root word come the names Temur, Temujin, Temuge, Temuder, and Temulun. Note the dropping of the final consonant before the addition of the grammatical inflection. Grammatical inflections sometimes have a specific meaning, but do not stand on their own.The suffix -jin means "of". Hence the literal meaning of Temujin is "of iron".

The grammar rules are unclear, and the client is OK with either Qadajin or Qadachin


18: Eudes de Croili -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a bend sinister ermine, overall a falcon close Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Eudes is a male given name found in "Masculine Given Names in Morlet, Étude d'anthroponymie picarde" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/picardemasc.html) s.n. Odo dated to 1214.

de Croili is a locative byname dated to Wace's Roman de Rou et des Ducs de Normandie (http://www.archive.org/stream/maistrewacesrom01wacegoog/maistrewacesrom01wacegoog_djvu.txt). The submitter prefers de Creully if it can be documented.


19: Eudes de Croili and Eyda von Rothenburg -New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name (Eudes de Croili) , either registered or submitted.
OSCAR is unable to find the name (Eyda von Rothenburg) , either registered or submitted.

(Fieldless) On a cup Or a falcon's head gules

Eudes' and Eyda's personal name submissions appear elsewhere on this letter.


20: Eyda von Rothenburg -New Name & New Device

Per chevron gules and sable, a chevron between three goblets, a bordure Or.

No major changes.

Eyda is a feminine given name found in "German Names from 1495" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/german1495.html)

von Rothenburg is a locative byname based on a town built in 1170. Lexikon fränkischer Ortsnamen by Wolf-Armin Freiherr von Reitzenstein dates the submitter spelling to 1387, s.n. Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Lévy, Paul, Les Noms des Israélites en France: Histoire et Dictionnaire, (Paris: Presses Universitaires de France, 1960), s.n. Rotenburg dates <Meïr de Rothenburg> to the 13th century.

Even if the second cite is considered to be French, French and German can be combined under Appendix C as long as the elements are within 300 years.


21: Grímr Gamall -New Name

No changes.

Grímr is a male given name found in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name at p. 10.

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

Consulting Herald: Oddr Pialfason

No documentation was provided for any of the name elements.


23: HERlEIFR DRÓMUNDR -New Name

No changes.

The name is written on the form in all caps. As the submitter's handwriting is nearly indecipherable, it is impossible to tell whether the given name is is intended to be Herleifr or Herieifr, although the former is more likely.

Deciphering the handwritten documentation is nearly impossible as well. We are taking our best guess at what the form says.

The given name Herleifr is found on the Viking Answer Lady website, with the following information:

For the first element Her- see above. For the second element -leifr see above. Fairly common in Norway after 1300.Found in Denmark. Occurs in Sweden, including the runic isncription harlaif. May appear in the Anglo-Scandinavian place-names Herleustorp, Helestorp, Herlethorpe. Helf may represent a contracted form of this name.

(http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#h) The Viking Answer Lady gives the following citations for this name:

FJ pp. 139-140, 344, 350 s.nn. Herleifr, Her-, -leifr; CV pp. 258, 381 s.v. herr, leif; NR s.n. Hær-, -læifR, HælfR

Drómundr also appears on the Viking Answer Lady website with the following information:

Anglo-Scandinavian name. Originally a by-name meaning a type of ship. A single instance is recorded from West Scandinavia. Anglo-Scandinavian forms occur in the place-names Dragmalebi, Tromundesbi, Dromundby.

(http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml#d). The citation given for this byname is Fellows-Jensen pp. 73 s.n. Drómundr.

As the submitter allows no changes, it is necessary to obtain his consent to put the name elements into the proper case.


24: Isabel ingen Domnall -New Name & New Device

Per pale Or and azure, a fret and a bordure counterchanged

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Consulting Herald: Harold von Auerbach

Isabel is an English female given name dated to 1141-49, c.1160 s.n. Isabel in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyHZ.html)

ingen is the pre-1200 Gaelic patronymic marker for female names.

Domnall is a male given name found in "A Simple Guide to Constructing 12th Century Scottish Gaelic Names" by Sharon L. Krossa (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/simplescotgaelicnames12.htm).

The name as submitted is not correctly formed. Gaelic patronymics require the genitive form of the father's name. In this case, Krossa's article gives the genitive form as Domnaill. Fortunately, the submitter allows all changes, so the name can be changed to the correct Isabel ingen Domnaill.

English and Gaelic can be combined under Appendix C of SENA as long as the elements are within 300 years of each other.


25: Johannes von Braunschweig -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of December 31, 2015 as submitted.

26: Lancelot de la Bataille -New Name & New Device

de la Bataille is dated to 1196 in R&W s.n. Battle.

Consulting Herald: Conall an Doire


28: Magnus hvalmagi -New Device Change

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Magnús hvalmagi in January of 2012, via the East.

Or, a gurges gules and a bordure sable semy of sheaves of barley Or

Old Item: Or, a gurges gules and on a chief sable three sheaves of barley Or, to be retained as a badge.

Consulting Herald: Murienn ingen Dunadaig


29: Midland Vale, Shire of -Resub Badge

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

(Fieldess) On a shakefork inverted argent, a stag rampant purpure

This is a re-submission. The original badge (Fieldless) On a pall inverted argent a stag rampant purpure. was returned on the Kingdom level in May 2016:

​SENA A3A2 states that "[for fieldless badges] no charges may be used that are defined

in terms of the field or its outline, such as a bordure, chief, or an ordinary that isn't couped." A

pall inverted is an ordinary that normally extends to the edges of the field. While in many cases

an ordinary extending to the edges of the badge form can be simply re­blazoned as "couped", in

this case the pall inverted has two pointed ends and one flat end. As there is a blazonable

difference between a pall inverted couped (flat ends) and a shakefork inverted (pointed ends),

we are unable to register this device as drawn. On resubmission it is suggested that the pall

inverted not be drawn to the edges of the badge form and that consistent treatment be applied

to the ends.


30: Rook Handhammer -New Name & New Device

Gules, an increscent moon bendwise sinister pierced through by a dagger fesswise argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Rook) most important.
Spelling (If not Handhammer, then Handhamer) most important.

Consulting Herald: Marie de Blois

Rook is a male given name found in the Family Search Historical Records:

Rook Hinton; Male; Marriage; 06 Nov 1604; Ringwood, Hampshire, England (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N26H-NYM)

The submitter would like the surname Handhammer. If this spelling cannot be documented, he will accept the surname Handhamer, which is found in Reaney & Wilson s.n. Handas, dated to 1296, with the meaning "small hammer."

He prefers Handhamer with one 'm' over Hand Hammer if he cannot have the submitted spelling.

However, the submitter asserts that his spelling is plausible based on the documented Handhamer. The Middle English Dictionary s.n. hamer gives hammer as a later spelling of hamer, with dated examples of two 'm's found in 1367, 1451-1500, and a1500. The submitter argues that Handhammer would be a later spelling of the documented Handhamer.

The increscent moon is based on an example in Siebmacher (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/heraldry/siebmacher/201-diezily.jpg)

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:
