The original name was returned at kingdom level on the April 2018 LoD (https://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2018/April%202018%20LoD.pdf):

This name is returned for a temporal incompatibility between the given name and the byname. As documented on the LoI, the byname is dated to 1656, after the end of the gray period. During kingdom commentary, Cristina Volpina was able to locate a record for Jean Cairns, Marriage, 02 Dec 1612 Athelstaneford, East Lothian, Scotland, Batch M11703-2 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTG6-2QQ) which falls withing the gray period. However, this would combine a Gaelic name from 1173 with an English (or Scots) byname from 1612. As Gaelic and English/Scots are in different language groups in Appendix C, they must be found within 300 years of eachother.

The submitter indicated that a feminine name is desired, but the documentation is for a masculine given name. Either is fine, but on resubmission it should be clearly indicated which is wanted.

The device was returned at kingdom level on the April 2018 LoD (https://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2018/April%202018%20LoD.pdf).

"Unfortunately, we are forced to return the device along with the name as Kingdoms are not permitted to create holding names."

The document is signed by the submitter.

Note: The document has an incorrect blazon, "Purpure, three mullets of seven points Or, two and one." We have corrected this for this submission.

Please record...my blanket permission to conflict with [Gules, on a bezant a sun-cross gules], as long as the submitted armory would receive one DC from my badge, even if the submitter is also using a cross within and conjoined to an annulet along with the Shimazu surname, strongly implying familial relationship.

The document is signed by the submitter.

Note: This permission to conflict was submitted as part of a longer letter, so the full blazon was added to make clear the statement of permission to conflict.


16: Cristina Volpina -New Blazon Change

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

Gules, on a bezant a sun-cross gules

I, [redacted], known primarily in the SCA as Cristina Volpina, do request the following in regards to my registered names and armory:

I request the reblazon of my badge, associated with the alternate name Shimazu Akame, from the registered "Gules, on a bezant a sun-cross gules" to the blazon originally submitted, "Gules, on a bezant a cross within and conjoined to an annulet gules." I understand that the most concise blazon is generally preferred, but I chose the longer blazon intentionally. For my person, this is not a sun-cross but her clan's symbol. More importantly, and unfortunately, since registration a variant of the sun-cross has seen increasingly prominent use by white supremacists. With neo-Nazi groups more and more active in the US and Europe, I wish to be disassociated from them as much as possible while still having registered armory that is historically appropriate for my persona.

21: Mari Clock van Hoorne -New Household Name

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

Gameday Taverne

Sound (as submitted) most important.
Language (as submitted) most important.
Culture (as submitted) most important.
Meaning (as submitted) most important.
Spelling (as submitted) most important.

Gameday is an English surname found in the MED s.v. gāme (n.) dated to 1327

The spelling taverne is found in the MED s.v. tavern(e) dated to 1393, 1400, 1432 and 1475. Tavern is a designator allowed by precedent:

"Finally, we note that none of the examples of household names based on signs that were provided on the LoI or in commentary support the pattern House [of] X. Instead, the documented patterns include X (with no designator; note that this pattern is not registerable as it violates RfS III.2.b), X Inn, X Tavern, X Brewhouse, and Sign of X."

This household name follows a pattern established in "English Sign Names" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/#BynameInn), which discusses a pattern of naming inns and taverns after the owner's surname, giving the examples of Bosoms yn dated to 1522 and Mitforde taverne dated to 1489 (although the article notes that Mitforde may be a place name).

The submitter's alternate name, Star Dust, was returned on the June 2017 LoAR. She is re-assigning that submission fee to this new household name submission. (Letter attached to the packet with this statement.) http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/06/17-06lar.html#240

Alternate name Star Dust.

This name must be returned for violating PN2E, which states:

No name will be registered that either in whole or in part is obtrusively modern. Something is said to be obtrusively modern when it makes a modern joke or reference that destroys medieval ambience and drags the average person mentally back to the present day. Obtrusiveness can be either in the written form or when spoken. A period name that has a modern referent will not generally be considered obtrusively modern. Only extreme examples will be returned.

Commenters in OSCAR, at the Pelican decision meeting and at the Roadshow at the Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium unanimously called this name obtrusively modern, particularly as the concept of "star dust" is dated to the 19th century and later. Even applying the fairly liberal standard for obtrusive modernity, this name grabbed too many listeners by the scruff of the neck and dragged them into the 21st century.


22: Marrin de Scoville -New Name & New Device

Azure, in saltire a rapier and quill pen argent and a tierce checky argent and sable

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Consulting herald: Charitye Dayle

de Scoville is a byname found in 16th & 17th Century Anglicized Irish Surnames from Woulfe by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Woulfe/SortedByAnglicizedRoot_S.shtml


23: Mayble Baldewyne -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Mayble) most important.

Consulting herald: Charitye Dale

Mayble is a feminine given name found in Feminine Given Names Found in a Dictionary of English Surnames by Talan Gwynek dated to 1450 (sn Mabel) https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Mabel

Baldwyne is a byname found under Adam Baldwyne in An Index to the 1332 Lay Subsidy Rolls for Lincolnshire by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/LincLSR/BynB1.html


24: Merrya Dock Gam -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per saltire gules and argent four arming buckles tongues to base counter changed

Sound (not specified) most important.

Consulting herald: Conall an Doire

Merrya is a gray period byname found in Family Search, as Elizabeth Merrya, batch # C05106-2, christened 28 Nov 1619 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NBSY-J2X. Byname as given name allowance per LoAR Sept 2012.

The pattern of given+byname+byname in late period English is attested in SENA Appendix A.

The original submission, "Meriadoc Gam", was returned at kingdom level on the April 2018 LoD (https://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2018/April%202018%20LoD.pdf). We feel this resubmission corrects the issues noted.

This name is returned for lack of documentation of the given name. The mere fact of a registration from 26 years ago does not support registration today. The cited sources are not ones that can be used as documentation absent additional information - all of them lack any indication that the particular spelling desired was not normalized. The sole acceptable source included in the submission - Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn's "A Simple Guide to Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names" - does not list the desired spelling.

On resubmission, we suggest either providing evidence for this specific spelling being found in period, or using one of the similar, documented, spellings from Tangwystyl's article. Unfortunately, we are forced to return the device along with the name as Kingdoms are not permitted to create holding names.

The original submission of this device was returned at kingdom level on the April 2018 LoD (https://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2018/April%202018%20LoD.pdf), along with the submitted name.

"Unfortunately, we are forced to return the device along with the name as Kingdoms are not permitted to create holding names."
