East ILoI dated 2017-07-13

Greetings unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World! We thank you for your commentary, and recommend the following items for your attention.

This letter contains the submissions received in late May and June, 2017.

Commentary on this letter will close on August 13, 2017.

1: Aesa Ormstunga -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a chevron rompu inverted and in chief a serpent in annulo vorant of its own tail argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Culture (Norse) most important.
Meaning (byname -) most important.

Consulting herald: Alexandre Saint Pierre

AEsa is a feminine given name found in Geirr Bassi, p. 17.

Ormstunga is a descriptive byname meaning "serpent tongued" found in Geirr Bassi, p. 26.

Construction is per Geirr Bassi, p. 18-19

2: Aiden Underhill -Resub Device

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

Argent, a trimount couped within an orle of vines entwined vert

Consulting herald: Marie de Blois

This is a resubmission of a Laurel return in January 2017. The reason for return is as follows:

Aiden Underhill. Device. Or fretty, on a chief vert three lozenges Or.

This device is returned for violating the requirement that an "emblazon must be reproducible by a competent heraldic artist, with only normal heraldic variation, from the written blazon" and for violating SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms" Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as "semy of frets conjoined vert", with only three full charges on the entire field, this cannot be considered semy. Therefore, this must be considered as some strange variation of fretty. Since we have no period evidence of this depiction and no way to blazon it properly, this must be returned.

3: Birna Ottarsdottir -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Language (unspecified) most important.
Culture (unspecified) most important.
Meaning (unspecified) most important.
Spelling (unspecified) most important.

Consulting herald: Cassandra Hobbes

Birna is a feminine name found in The Landnamabok, and translates to "she bear" http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html

Ottarsdottir is a marked patronymic byname, constructed according to rules found in SENA Appendix A for Scandinavian names (genitive of father's name + -son or -dottir).

Óttar is a masculine name found in Geirr Bassi, p. 14 s.n. Óttar

4: Chana Freidl the Maker -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister azure and purpure, a dragon segreant maintaining the two halves of a broken needle argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (the use of Chana and Freidl, relatives of the submitter) most important.

Submitting Herald: Lillia de Vaux

Chana is a feminine Jewish name found in Alexander Belder, A Dictionary of Ashkenaszic Given Names s.n. Khane. Instances of the name are found in the Rhineland, 1096 and in South Germany, 1298. Submitted spelling is found in a 1646-1790 German transliteration from Hebrew.

Freidl is a masculine or feminine Jewish given name derived from the Yiddish freyd meaning joy. In Beider, s.nn. Fredye and Freydman, the Yiddish form is Freydl. A feminine version, Freidel, is found in entries from German transcriptions from Hebrew between 1398 and 1411.

The name is also found in Family Search records as a German surname:

Elisabeth Freidel: female; christening; 27 Feb 1614; Bavaria: batch C98897-1


Foerg Fridl: male; christening; 12 Nov 1650; Bavaria: batch C99388-2


Barbara Fridel: female; christening; Mar 1559; Wuerttemberg: batch C92388-1


the Maker is a Lingua Anglica form of a descriptive/occupational byname. Latinized genitive example is found in Urkunden und Akten der Stadt Strassburg - https://books.google.com/books?id=qU3AQAAMAAJ p. 242 as dicti Macher. The Maker is a plausible lingua Anglica form of Dictus Macher or of the vernacular der Macher.

Appendix C of SENA, 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" therefore, the combination of Hebrew Chana with Hebrew or German Freidl and the German occupational byname should be registerable.

We accept both period and modern standard transliterations of Hebrew names (Avraham Harofeh, 10/2003, A-Atlantia)

5: Eleanor Falleinthewelle -New Name & New Device

Correction to Name (2017-Jul-14 08:07:49): Submitter did not provide a summary of documentation, instead just listing a series of links. If commenters want to summarize them and turn them into coherent documentation, that'd be great. Absent that, this may be returned for violating AH IV.C.2 - Documentation.

11: Orlando Sforza -Resub Badge

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

(Fieldless) On a cross crosslet fitchy Or a latin cross fitchy sable

The original submission, (Fieldless) A cross crosslet fitchy Or was returned on the August 2015 East LoD for conflict with Launcelot de Westwood, Sep 1973 LoAR: Azure, a cross botonny fitchy Or.

The first resubmission, (Fieldless) On a cross crosslet fitchy Or another sable, was returned on the February 2017 East LoD with the following comment:

This badge can be validly blazoned as Fieldless) A cross crosslet fitchy sable fimbriated Or. Under that blazon, it is a conflict with the badge of Aengus Stiubhard Mac Dhughaill (June 2005, Calontir): Barry and per pale argent and vert, a cross crosslet fitchy sable.​ There is a single DC for fieldlessness.

The change of the tertiary cross to a latin cross fitchy should resolve this issue.
