Atlantia LoP dated 2017-05-12

Unto Cian Triton, Seraphina Golden Dolphin, and the Atlantian College of Heralds does Catherine Ibis send warm greetings! This letter contains the submissions received between April 10th and May 10th. Commentary for this letter will close June 10th, 2017.

1: Aelhaearn ap Bleidcu -New Name & New Device

Or, a fess checky sable and gules between three crows migrant and a hound statant sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture (Welsh male) most important.

Aelhaearn as a given name is based on 7th Century Welsh priest Aelhaearn ap Cerfael, later sainted and with a 14th C. Church, St. Aelhaiarn (alternate spelling) at Guilsfield. Another alternate spelling of Elhaearn, a disciple of Dyfrig, appears in the same entry.

Bartrum, Peter C. A Welsh Classical Dictionary: People in History and Legend up to about A.D. 1000. National Library of Wales, 1993: http://www.llgc.org.uk/fileadmin/fileadmin/docs_gwefan/casgliadau/Drych_Digidol/Deunydd_print/Welsh_ Classical_Dictionary/02_A-B.pdf, pg. 4.

O and A shows Rhianwen Morgaine ferch Aelhaearn: This name was registered in November of 1993 (via Atenveldt). Giving precedent for SCA use of the male name of Aelhaearn. Would prefer the spelling Alherin, but no search returned it as an alternate spelling that I could find.

ap Bleidcu as a surname follows Welsh naming practice of (Given Name) ap (Father's Name) outlined in this article: A Simple Guide to Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names from Merioneth: http://www.heatherrosejones.com/names/welsh/simple13thmerioneth.html

Bleidcu shows up in an Academy of Saint Gabriel report from 1998: http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?1135+0 Also listed under Welsh Masculine Names of the First Thousand Years of British Names: Appendices IV and V: https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/british1000/appendix4_5.html

2: Caitilín inghean Ui Ruaidhrí -New Name & New Device

Purpure, a saltire sable fimbriated between in pale two coneys statant argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Construction The construction [single given name] inghean Uí [eponymous clan ancestor's name in genitive case and lenited] is documented from "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" by Sharon Krossa (http://www.medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/).

Caitilín Caitilín is an Early Modern Irish female given name found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Caitilin.shtml) with Annals dates of 1411, 1471, 1486, 1490, 1506, 1527, 1530, 1568, 1582, 1592

RuaidhríRuaidhrí: is found in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Ruaidrí / Ruaidhrí" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien). http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Ruaidhri.shtml Early Modern Irish Gaelic (c1200-c1700) nominative form: Ruaidhrí

We believe this to be different enough from Caitilin inghean mhic Ruadhain for registration.

3: Estienne Le Mons d'Anjou -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Estienne Le Mons d'Anjou in August of 2011, via Atlantia.

House of the Golden Corgi

(Fieldless) A corgi dog Or maintaining from its mouth a drop spindle vert

This name uses the pattern of color + animal for inn signs, which is found in "English Sign Names," by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/#ColorAnimal). Examples include: White Hart (1450), Whytehorse (1312), Grayhorse (2 Hen. VII)

House of is an accepted designator for household names based on inn signs per the February 2013 Cover Letter. The spelling house is dated to a1398 in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. angle (n.(2)).

The Middle English Dictionary has: (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/med/ ) -> golden (adj.) Also goldein, golding, colden.: 3. Having the color of gold, golden, yellow; shining like gold.

Corgi is found in Wyllam Salesbury's A Dictionary in Englyshe and Welshe (London 1574), where there is a reference to the Korgi ne gostoc, meaning "Corgi or curre dogge". https://www.welshcorgi-news.ch/Leseecke/InfoCorgi/Meaning_eng.html This source also gives a gray period illustration of the breed.

Corgi is found in Wyllam Salesbury's A Dictionary in Englyshe and Welshe (London 1574), where there is a reference to the Korgi ne gostoc, meaning "Corgi or curre dogge". https://www.welshcorgi-news.ch/Leseecke/InfoCorgi/Meaning_eng.html

This source also gives a gray period illustration of the breed. It is worth noting that the breed in period was taller than the modern breed and had a tail. Both of these attributes are represented in the depiction.

4: Jared the Bear -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2016, via Atlantia.

Domus Calicus Ursī

(Fieldless) A brown bear proper sustaining a chalice Or

Domus Calicis Ursī
This household name is a Latinized form of an English Sign Name meaning House of the Chalice and Bear. An example of a fully Latinized inn-sign name was <signum Ursi> (at the sign of the bear), found in the raw data for Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, "English Sign Names"(http://www.medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/raw.shtml). English Sign Names: Raw Data - Medieval Scotland

www.medievalscotland.org English Sign Names: Raw Data. by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada (Kathleen M. O'Brien)

Orle provided documentation that Romans used inn signs as did the English, citing Fritz Endell, Old Tavern Signs. Cambridge: Houghton Mifflin. 1916 (http://archive.org/stream/oldtavernsignsex00enderich#page/n45/mode/2up) and W. C. Firebaugh, The Inns of Greece & Rome, and a history of Hospitality from the Dawn of Time to the Middle Ages. Chicago: Pascal Covici; 1928; pp. 157-171 (http://www.elfinspell.com/ClassicalTexts/Firebaugh-TheInnsOfGreeceAndRome/Chapter11.html). Among those named were: The Bear in the Cap, The Four Sisters (or Quattuor Sorores), The Elephant, The Cock, The Camel, The Great Eagle, The Little Eagle, The Serpent, The Great Crane, The Sword, The Wheel, and The Olives. Given this pattern it seems plausible that a Roman inn was named after a Roman artifact. As a Latinized English inn-sign name, it should be registrable either way.

5: Lyneya O'Ciaragain -New Name & New Device

Vert, on a pall between three crosses of Saint Brigid of three points Or, a crow migrant sable

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (sounds like Lanea Kerrigan) most important.

Lyneya O'Ciaragain

The given name Lyneya was documented from Susan Carroll-Clark's "Statistical Survey of Given Names in Essex Co., England, 1182-1272" at www.members.tripod.com/nicolaa5/articles/names.html where it is shown as occuring once.

SCA O and A shows Lyneya Allain: This name was registered in March of 2008 (via Atlantia). Giving precedent for SCA use of the given name Lyneya.

O'Ciaragain is an Irish last name from County Mayo.
Library Ireland lists O'Ciaragain from Woulfe's Irish Names and Surnames here: http://www.libraryireland.com/names/oc/o-ciaragain.php

O'Ciaragain, and the Anglicized version of O Kerigane and o Kierregain show up in this article: O'Brien, Kathleen M. "16th & 17th Century Anglicized Irish Surnames from Woulfe": http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Woulfe/SortedByGaelicRoot_C1.shtml
O'Ciaragain is listed as originating in the Connacht region under Partraige with Ancestry.com's Ireland Tribe Index: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~irlkik/ihm/tribe_index.htm
SCA O and A shows Ragnall Ó Ciaragáin: This name was registered in March of 1997 (via Caid). Giving some precedent for SCA use of the surname. Substitution of inghean and/or Ui for O' is acceptable if needed for feminine names.

6: Merovechus de Blariaco -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Merovechus:
Gregory of Tours mentions:
Book 2: http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/gregorytours/gregorytours2.shtml "...Merovechum... cuius fuit filius Childericus" [...Merovech...who was the father of Childeric.]
Book 4: www.thelatinlibrary.com/gregorytours/gregorytours4.shtml"...Merovechum atque Chlodovechum..."[...Merovech and also Chlodovech...]
Book 5, which has the chapter included in the documentation: http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/gregorytours/gregorytours5.shtml which seems to round out the 4 mentions of Merovech. Using the given name as provided by Gregory, we would then use the nominative form Merovechus.

de Blariaco:Dictionnaire Topographique de France at http://cths.fr/dico-topo/affiche-vedettes.php?cdep=89&cpage=14 shows the spelling Blariacus in the area of Sens dated to 864 A.D.

Modifying this to use a prepositional phrase indicating origin at the specified location we get de Blariaco.

Consulting Herald: Etienne Sea Stag


7: Rolant Tannhäuser -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in September of 2017, via Atlantia.

Old Item: Roland Gervais, to be released.

8: Rynion of Raven's Cove -Resub Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Per chevron vert and azure, between two dogwood blossoms and a coney rampant contourney maintaining a harp argent

Device Submissions History: January 2016 Atlantian Return of "Per chevron vert and azure, between the chevron two dogwood blossoms and a coney sejant erect maintaining a harp sinister argent"

The device was returned for redraw because commenters had a difficult time identifying the argent harp against the argent rabbit and the rabbit is not in a blazonable posture. The posture sejant erect has the arms up over the head and sejant would have all four paws on the ground. If the hard was drawn a little more away from the body of the rabbit, it might help with the identifiability. Also upon resubmission, please draw the chevron with a little steeper.

July 2016 Atlantian Return of "Per chevron vert and azure, a chevron between two New World dogwood blossoms and a coney salient to sinister its dexter forepaw resting on a maintained harp reversed argent "

The device was returned because the name is being returned. Golden Dolphin cannot assign a holding name to send the device forward to Laurel, only Laurel can assign holding names for registration. Upon resubmission, the chevron needs to move up a little on shield, so that is a little more balance on the fess line. Moving up the chevron will allow the rabbit to grow a little. Also please draw the rabbit a little large and the harp a little smaller, as they are currently drawn, they have the same visual weight. If they have the same visual weight, the device will have problems with slot machine or having 3 different types of charges in secondary charge group (Flowers + Rabbit and Harp).
