East Kingdom ILoI dated 2018-10-16

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 includes the first submissions from Pennsic. Please note that the scanning has a bit of a grey background this year, and that is to be overlooked through all Pennsic submissions.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of the volunteer heraldic artists and the industrious coloring squad, without whom Pennsic submissions would not be possible.

It is not our intention to penalize any submitter for quality of artwork or coloring unless the emblazon has issues with recognizability or violates rule/precedent.

al-Sardāniyya is a constructed locative feminine descriptive byname for a person from Sardinia. G. Oman, "Sardaniya", in Encyclopaedia of Islam, Second Edition (BrillOnline, dx.doi.org/10.1163/1573-3912_islam_COM_1005) states that this is the usual Arabic transcription of the name of the place, conquered by the Arabs in our period.

The -iyya ending is the usual feminine locative adjectival ending, as found for example in Juliana de Luna, "Arabic Names from al-Andalus" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/alandalus/).

11: Cillene O Caollaidhe -Resub Device

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

Per pale purpure and argent, a butterfly counterchanged and on a chief Or five trefoils vert

This device was previously returned on the June 2017 LoAR (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/06/17-06lar.html#230):

This device is returned for violation of SENA A3B, Armorial Contrast. The chief is argent on a field that is half argent, half purpure, and the chief comes into contact with the argent portion of the field. In the Letter of Intent, the submitter cited SENA A3B4b, which states that

the field and charges on it may share a tincture only if ... (2) only one of the two is multiply divided and the charge(s) is an ordinary or simple geometric shape arranged in a way that both the type of field division and charge are clearly identifiable.

However, the rule gives a clear example that informs this decision:

For example, both Vair, a chief argent or Checky Or and vert, a lozenge vert can be acceptable, if drawn so that the shared tinctures are not against each other.

Because per pale is not "multiply divided," and the chief comes into contact with a substantial portion of the field that shares its tincture, it becomes unrecognizable and must be returned.


12: Elizabeth Ivette -New Name Change & New Badge

15: Mægwynn filia Brun -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (sounds similar to Megan (nickname is Meg)) most important.

Mægwynn is a female given name suggested as an alternative form of Megan in the Problems Names article "Concerning the Name Megan" by Talan Gwynek http://medievalscotland.org/problem/names/megan.shtml which says: Coincidentally, Mægwyn is probably an Old English name: Several other feminine compounds in Mæg- are attested (Mægburh, Mæsuith), and -wyn or -wynn is a common feminine theme. The surname Maywen, recorded in 1332, is most likely derived from Mægwynn.

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

Crescent Keep, Company of

This submission is to be associated with Gules, a decrescent Or within a bordure ermine

Per bend argent and sable, three tomoe in annulo sable

O-umajirushi: A 17th-Century Compendium of Samurai Heraldry translated and annotated by Xavid Pretzer p. 91 says "The motif has been used since at least the 11th century." The tomoe is a period Japanese charge, generally used in threes.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (Norse: Temple Whore) most important.

Úlfr is a masculine given name on p. 15 of Geir Bassi

The prepended byname Hof- meaning temple, court is attested in Geirr Bassi, p. 23; we believe the postpended form would be identical (it's the header form in Cleasby Vigfusson).

The submitter is aiming to use the word 'adulterer' (found in Cleasby Vigfusson) as a byname; he will reluctantly accept a version of another word that is similar in meaning or sound.

By precedent, insect wings can't be used in chimerical monster, only bird/bat wings. But this is a historical monster, with depictions found on gold plaques embossed with winged bee goddesses, perhaps the Thriai, found at Camiros Rhodes, dated to 7th century BCE (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bee_(mythology).

First submission of this constructed monster.
