Atenveldt LoP dated 2016-09-30



30 September 2016, A.S. LI

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 October2016 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have your commentary made by 15 October 2016.

1: Cirina Badartai -New 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 saltire purpure and argent, in fess two feathers sable and a demi-sun issuant from base Or.

Old Item: Serena the Lavendere, to be retained as an alternate name.
Old Item: Per pale purpure and argent, a butterfly counterchanged., to be retained as a badge.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

The name is Mongolian.

Cirina is a female given name found in Mongolian Naming Practices, Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html. Badartai means "monk, mdendicant." The literal term is badarcila (http://www.linguamongolia.html), but following On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names, Baras-aghur Naran (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/baras-aghur/mongolian.html), it was suggested on Facebook's SCA Heraldry Chat that the appropriate suffix to indicate possessions (a condition of being a monk) would be "tai."

2: Magnus Ulfsson -New Name & New Device

Or, a boar statant sable and one a chief rayonny gules a tau-rho Or.

The name is Old Norse.

Magnus is a masculine given name found in The Old Norse Name, Geir Bassi Haraldsson, p.13.

Ulfr is a masculine given name, same source, p. 15. Ulfsson is an ON patronymic formed from Ulfr+son according to the patronymic formation p.17, in Geirr Bassi.

Unfortunately, there is a direct conflict with Magnus Ulfson, registered March 2016. The client may wish to choose a byname that would clear the conflict. Galti is ON for "boar," surtr "black," inn hugprúði "stout-hearted."

The tau-rho staurogram is one of several christograms, or monogram-like devices used by ancient Christians, to refer to Jesus. However, New Testament scholar Larry Hurtado points out that the staurogram only refers to the crucifixion, unlike others, which mention Jesus' other characteristics. Also, the staurogram is visual -- the tau-rho combinations create images of Jesus on the cross, making the staurogram the earliest Christian images of Jesus on the cross. It is created out of the Greek letters tau and rho: "In Greek, the language of the early church, the capital tau, or T, looks pretty much like our T. The capital rho, or R, however, is written like our P. If you superimpose the two letters, it looks something like this." (http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/crucifixion/the-staurogram/)

3: Riane Goch -New Device Change

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

Gules, on a plate a dragon's head erased sable impaled on a sword gules.

Old Item: Per saltire argent and gules, in chief two chevronels couped and in base a pair of scissors sable., to be released.

If this is blazoned as an impaled head, there are only three layers to the design (field + plate + tertiary charge). It is is blazoned otherwise, there is a problem with excessive layering (Gules,on a plate a sword gules surmounted by a dragon's head erased sable.).
