Atenveldt LoP dated 2016-08-20



20 August 2016, A.S. LI

Kingdom of Atenveldt

Unto Their Royal Majesties Cosmo Craven and Elzbieta; Baroness Genevieve de Lironcourt, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

This is the September 2016 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have commentary to me by 15 September 2016.

1: Brynja Knarrarbringa -New Name & New Device

Per chevron gules and Or, two dragonflies in chrevron Or and a beech tree eradicated proper.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

The name is Old Norse. The is only citation for the given name having been registered (Brynja of Byrrhyll in April 1985). (Several baby name sites show it as an Icelandic feminine given name meaning armor, http://www.behindthename.com/name/brynja and http://www.nordicnames.de/wiki/Brynja).

The byname means "merchant-ship bosom, big breasts."

2: Natasiia Novgorodova -Resub Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: 'Old Item' should contain the former primary name. The form that is there is not a registered name.

Per bend argent and gules, a swan rousant sable and a sword inverted Or.

Old Item: Mariyah al-Madiniyah, to be retained as an alternate name.
Old Item: Per pale azure and Or, a crescent and between its horns a mullet of four points all counterchanged., to be retained as a badge.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning most important.

The client has asked that her new name change, appearing in the July 2016 LoI be withdrawn, and she wishes to submit this instead.

The name is Russian. Natasiia is a female diminutive (13th-14th C.) of the given name Anastasia (A Dictionary of Period Russian Names, Paul Wickenden of Thanet).

Novgorod was a major city of the Kievan Rus. The focal point of the city is the Detinets, or the Kremlin. It was mentioned first in the chronicles in the entry for 1044. In that year, ramparts with traditional wooden framework constructions were built on the site of an older fortification. (http://www.novgorod.ru/english/). The suffix -ova is intended to form a byname meaning, "woman from Novgorod" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html).

3: Rachel Phythien -New Name & New Device

Purpure, in chief a cross formy between flaunches argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.
Spelling most important.

Rachel is the client's legal given name. Rachel is a female given name dated to 1629 in a marriage that occurred in Rocester, Stafford, England, Batch M01008-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N21F-DMJ).

Her legal surname is Phethean, and she wishes her SCA name to be close to that. Thomas Phitheon is dated to 1602 as a christening date in Holy Trinity in the Minories, London, London, England, Batch P01553-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5NK-F7K), while Phythien is dated 1250-1350 for Will Phythien in the village of Barnwell, in WH Hart and PA Lyon's Carularium Monasterii de Rameseia, Vol. III London; HMSO (Phethean Family History, www.phethean.org.uk/surname-history/early-surnames/).

I found no reference for the Sons of Scotia, other than it is a unregistered household (headed by her husband) in the Barony of Atenveldt, a Commandery of Hospitallers.

The most pressing question I have is, assuming that the name submission were Rachel Phythien alone, would this be too close to her legal name of Rachel Phethean (a couple of letters difference, and what is likely to be identical pronunciation)?

Once again, a defective Crayola purple marker is uncapped and used.

4: Ríán hua Tadgáin -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2014, via Atenveldt.

Sable, a bend sinister between a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy argent.

The previous device submission, Per chevron sable and vert, a chevron rompu between a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy and an edelweiss argent seeded Or., was withdrawn by the client.
