Submitter desires a feminine name.

Andruta is a feminine Polish given name dated to 1558.

Jezof is a masculine Polish given name dated to 1528 and 1536.

According to SENA Appendix A for North Slavic (Polish and Czech), women used the suffixes -ina/-yna or -owa with their husband's given name to indicate marriage. The submitted <Jezofyna> meets this pattern.

Order of Skye Fyre

(Fieldless) A fess wavy couped vert, and overall a snowflake argent

No major changes.

Consulting herald: Shannon inghean Bhriain

Juliana's article on Medieval Secular Order Names (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/) supports the pattern of orders named after saints/people.

Both name elements are found in the Family Search records:

Skye

M Given Name, 22 April 1556, Batch M04147-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2P5-8XT

Fyre

M Surname, 16 May 1576, Batch B05314-7 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JZGM-BPT

Submitter will accept "Order of Skye Fyre of Concordia of the Snows" if needed to clear conflict.

The use of a snowflake is grandfathered to the group, and this depiction was used in recent registrations by the Barony. There is also precedent that the snowflake does not need to be identical to the originally registered version (from 1979):

There has been some confusion that in the cases when the use of a now prohibited charge was allowed under the grandfather clause, the depiction used in the new submission had to be the exact depiction registered. This is incorrect. In case like here, what is grandfathered to the group is the use of a snowflake. Using the exact same depiction is only required when the specific depiction of a registrable charge has become unregistrable.

Here, what is prohibited is the charge type: a "snowflake" and not the precise drawing they used once. Thus any reasonable and identifiable depiction of a snowflake is registrable using the grandfather clause.

In some cases what is grandfathered is a particular, now unregistrable, depiction of a (usually registrable) charge. In that case, invoking the Grandfather Clause would require the depictions to match very closely the registered form. [Nordskogen, Barony of., April 2015, Northshield-A]
