Kunigunda - dated to 1609 - '16th-17th Century Hessian Given Names and Surnames' by Kunegundis filia Theoderici (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/kunegund/hessenames.html)

Ottilia is being used as an unmarked matronym. There are at least two examples in Brechenmacher of an unmarked matronym: sn Agathe '1530 Hansgen Agathe", and sn Adelheigh '1539 Heinrich Adelhait'. Unmarked patronyms are found in German (Appendix A) so unmarked matronyms, although rare in period, should also be acceptable


24: Llywelyn Glyndyverdwy -Resub Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2010, via the Middle.

Sable, on a cross vert fimbriated a leek Or, and for augmentation in dexter chief a harp sustained by a dragon's foot couped bendwise sinister Or

Resubmission - http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/12/17-12lar.html

Llywelyn Glyndyverdwy. Augmentation of arms. Sable, on a cross vert fimbriated a leek Or, and for augmentation, in dexter chief a dragon's foot couped sustaining a harp reversed Or.

This augmentation is returned for redraw. Commenters were not able to identify the limb holding the harp. Given the small size of augmentations, we're not sure this design is usable as a viable augmentation of arms.

We remind royalty that while they may bestow augmentations of arms and regulate the use of badges registered to their kingdoms, they do not have the authority to dictate the form of an augmentation. We also encourage the submitter to work with their principal herald to explore alternative design options which will meet the requirements of kingdom custom.


25: Macrina Archangela Paladini -New Name

No major changes.

Macrina - saint name, Macrina the Elder (3rd-4th C) and her granddaughter, Macrina the Younger (4th C) venerated in the Roman Catholic, Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. St. Gregory of Nyssa wrote 'Life of St. Macrina' after his sister, Macrina the Younger. (http://www.tertullian.org/fathers/gregory_macrina_1_life.htm) Image 1.

Archangela - religious name of 15th century Italian nun, Blessed Archangela Girlani (born Eleanor Girlani). This given name also appears in the name Archangela Monialis in Annotationes in statuta siue lus municipale Romanae vrbis, quibus non solum... by Giovanni Battista Fenzoni, published in 1636. p. 132. (https://books.google.com/books?id=zxN_UUNFXxMC) Image 2.

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in December of 2018, via the Middle.

Old Item: Gwalchmai ap Bledig, to be retained as an alternate name.
No major changes.
Language (German, preference to Low German) most important.

Maleachi - German biblical name; Spelling found in Lutheran Bible, first published in 1522 - http://www.bibledbdata.org/onlinebibles/german_l/39_001.htm

Wulfhart - is found in Bahlow, pg 564. Bahlow states that Wulfhart is documented to 1257. This is not true: the 1257 citation is for <Wolfhardus Surscale>. Brechenmacher s.n. <Wolfhart> has <Heinr. Wolfhart> 1257 and <Gereko filius Wulfhardi> 1264. The <Wulf-> spelling is typically Low German (and indeed Brechenmacher's 1264 citation is from Hamburg), but I see no problem with that.

La Noire: surname meaning "the black", found in the name Richaude..., d'Audigny, 1248, in Morlet Picarde, p. 388. Capitalization of prepositions in French is variable.

Submitter originally desired Terra de le Nuit, but this could not be found in the sources available at Pennsic Heralds Point. Terra/Terren sound is important, the meaning of Earth is VERY important to the client, as a surname meaning

"of the Night"; submitter will accept in any language (Latin, French, English...). Assistance is requested.


31: Þóra Grímudóttir -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2014, via the Middle.

Róarsdóttir - patronymic based on Róarr, found in Viking Answer Lady, s.n. Hróarr, Hróðarr, Róarr, which cites Fellows-Jensen, Gillian. Scandinavian Personal Names in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, pp. 221, 346, 348 s.n. Róarr Vikig Answer Lady cites the form Roar as Old Danish and Old Swedish and the form Hróarr as Old West Norse, presumably based on Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name (p. 11) which she cites in her notes.

Patronymic constructed according to pattern in "A Simple Guide to Creating Old Norse Names" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara L. Uckelman) (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html). Note that this article, based on the pages devoted to patronymics in Geirr Bassi's Old Norse Names refers to Icelandic or Old West Norse structures which would match the spelling Hróarr given by Geirr Bassi (see above).

The feminine patronymic patronymic particle in Old Danish and/or Old Swedish may

be slightly different, but appropriate references to document this doe not seem to be at hand.
