The masculine form of this name, Coroticus, was borne by a 5th century British chieftain whose soldiers were addressed in a letter by St. Patrick.

It is found in Coláiste Pháidraig Studia Hibernica issues 20-23 http://books.google.com/books?id=E7VnAAAAMAAJ&dq=merkka - snippet view only. The Proto-Celtic *merkā is also found in Celtic Lexicon University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh & Celtic Studies (see attached). Assistance is requested documenting the correct form of this element (we have omitted the markings). The submitter prefers a vernacular particle appropriate for Celtic Britain over the Latin filia.

12: Dirkin MacWard -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2018, via the East.

Per pale vert and Or, a ram-headed torc counterchanged argent and sable

Consulting herald: Thory Pallet

This device was returned on the August 2018 LoAR:

Per pale vert and Or, a ram-headed torc counterchanged argent and sable.

This device must be returned for lack of documentation of the depiction of the charge. The torc depicted in the device has Celtic-style knotwork forming the band. While known extant torcs are either solid metal or wire twisted into a tight cable, there are no examples of this kind of openwork weaving for period torcs.

This device is also returned for violation of the long-standing ban on the use of Celtic knotwork.

We feel that this redraw addresses these concerns.

Order of The Sea-Urchin of Ostgardr

(Fieldless) A sea-urchin affrony argent finned azure

Registration of this order was requested by the branch's landed leadership and has been approved by the officer corps.

The pattern of naming an order after a heraldic charge is documented in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/

Order is one of the listed designators for order names found in SENA Appendix E.

Sea-Urchin is an established heraldic charge, in the form of a hybrid beast composed of of the foreparts of a hedgehog and the tail of a fish.

Ostgardr, Crown Province of is a registered branch name, via the East Kingdom, 1984. For this order, the branch chooses to use only the actual name of the branch.

23: Roy de Basillon -New Name & New Device

Azure, a wolf's head cabossed and on an embattled chief argent a rapier reversed sable

24: Rudolf Siege -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2018, via the East.

Per pale azure and gules, on a cog wheel Or a dragon segreant sable

Consulting herald: Alexandre Saint Pierre

This device was returned on the December 2018 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/12/18-12lar.html):

This device must be returned for redraw. While a charge that has internal voiding such as a cogwheel can be charged, care must be taken to maintain contrast. In this submission, the cogwheel is depicted with very thin spokes which are almost entirely obscured by the dragon, with the resulting effect of a sable dragon on a field azure and gules. Upon resubmission, the component parts of the cogwheel should be much bigger and bolder. The wings of the dragon should also be reduced in size so that they do not overwhelm the remainder of the monster.

We believe this redraw addresses these concerns.

29: Vindiorix Ordowik -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in February of 2018, via the East.

Old Item: Finn the Black, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (none noted) most important.

Consulting herald: Lillia de Vaux

Vindiorix is a Celtic given name found on a curse tablet (no. TS 18.5) roughly dated between the 2nd and 4th centuries CE at the Temple of Sulis Minerva in Bath, England. The name is found in the Celtic Personal Names of Roman Britain (CPNRB) database https://www.asnc.cam.ac.uk/personalnames/details.php?name=512. Additional information and a drawing of the tablet are attached.

Ordowik is intended to be a tribal byname referring to the Ordovices, who were settled in northern Wales around the time of the Roman Conquest and are mentioned in the writings of Tacitus. Although the tribe was described as having been exterminated by Agricola in the 1st century, a descendant of the tribe is identified in a Latinized inscription on a pillar stone in Wales, dated c.500: CORBALENGI IACIT ORDOVS [Corbaleng(us) lies (here), an Ordovician or Corbaleng(us) lies here, a member of the Ordovices]. (In this case, Corbalengus is a Primitive Irish Name). Although the tribal name would normally be in the genitive form, this example does not appear to follow the typical pattern. A photograph of the stone is attached.

Ordowik is a Proto-Celtic form of the tribe name that roughly means "those who fight with hammers" (Anne H Soukhanov, The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language

https://books.google.com/books?id=rqRfDwAAQBAJ&pg=PT8626 and Celtic Lexicon, University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh & Celtic Studies https://www.wales.ac.uk/en/CentreforAdvancedWelshCelticStudies/ResearchProjects/CompletedProjects/Th eCelticLanguagesandCulturalIdentity/CelticLexicon.aspx and https://www.wales.ac.uk/Resources/Documents/Research/CelticLanguages/ProtoCelticEnglishWordlist.pdf Assistance is requested in documenting for the correct form of this element if needed.

The submitter prefers the spelling Ordovik if it can be justified. The submitter does not want any Latinized elements, such as the attested Ordovices.

Most examples of British pillar stones with tribal bynames used the pattern <given name> maqi mucoi <tribal name in genitive>, where the byname means "son of the tribe of X". The submitter has decided against this pattern for unless necessary for registration. Backup documentation of this pattern is attached if needed.
