The byname "na Buile" is found in 1583 in Index of Names in Irish Annals: Descriptive Bynames: na Buile by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan

3: Amleth of Lochmere -New Name & New Device

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (Sounds like Almeth, Amaleth, Amleth, etc.) most important.

Amleth is a French literary name related to English Hamlet. In the November 2011 return of Amleths Moor, Shire of, precedent states, "In the 16th century French Histoires Tragiques, the name of the prince appears as Amleth."

The byname "of Lochmere" uses the branch name allowance. The branch name Lochmere, Barony of, was registered in May of 1989 via Atlantia.


4: Avelina del Dolce -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2005, via Æthelmearc.

Checky vert and argent ermined vert, a wooden hobbyhorse issuant from base proper, reined Or, wearing a flat cap gules feathered Or.

This is a resubmission of the November 2016 Laurel return of "Checky vert and argent ermined vert, a wooden hobbyhorse issuant from base proper, reined argent and wearing a flat cap gules feathered Or.":

"This device is returned for violating SENA A3E2, which states complexity of a design is "measured by adding the number of types of charges to the number of tinctures. Items with a complexity count of eight or less receive no penalty for complexity from this rule." Here we have three charges (horse, cap, feather) and six tinctures (vert, argent ermined vert, argent, brown, gules, Or), for a total complexity count of nine. To be registered, this device would have to be shown to follow a period pattern of charges and tinctures; this evidence was not found by commenters.

Additionally, the argent rein and its overlap with argent sections of the field impairs the identifiability of the charge."


5: Avice Claremond -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2010, via Atlantia.

(Fieldless) A dunghill cock per fess sable and azure maintaining in its beak a scythe and in its dexter claw a goblet argent

This is a resubmission of the April 2018 Laurel return of "(Fieldless) A dunghill cock per fess sable and azure maintaining in its beak a sickle bendwise and in its dexter claw a goblet argent.":

"This badge is returned for violation of SENA A2C2, which requires that "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable. While some allowance will be made for lack of artistic skill, the identity of elements must not be ambiguous. Ambiguity can be created when a depiction falls between two states that contribute to difference, such as tincture, posture, or type of charge." In this submission, the sickle is halfway between bendwise and palewise, which is grounds for return.

If the sickle were successfully depicted as bendwise, this device would still be returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation" The maintained charges are part of the same charge group, and as the goblet is palewise, they are not in the same orientation.

Upon resubmission, please depict the sickle with the handle at an angle to the curve of the blade, rather than running parallel to the edge where the blade attaches to the handle. The charge should resemble a question mark."

The common noun Coruo ("any kind of raven or Crow. Also a fish called a Cabot or sea rauen") is found in Florio's 1611 Italian/English Dictionary, p. 127 (http://www.pbm.com/~lindah/florio/142.html).The submitter will accept Corvus if necessary.
