Atlantia LoP dated 2018-09-16

Unto Cian Triton and the Atlantian College of Heralds, Greetings!

Herein for your perusal are the second half of our submissions received from the Pennsic War this year. Many thanks to all the heralds who took time out of their War to help out at Heralds' Point, and those who now take the time to comment.

1: Franceska of Stormwall -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Atlantia LoI of December 31, 2017 as submitted.

Per pale purpure and vert a fox couchant regardant ermoinois.

Submission History: This is a resubmission after the March 2018 Laurel return of "Per chevron ployé purpure and vert, fimbriated Or, in base a fox couchant guardant erminois.":

This device is returned for redraw. The size and number of ermine spots on the fox, as well as the "cut from cloth" layout that has them terminating in parts across the silhouette of the charge, so obscure the identity of the charge that it is impossible to identify.

This device is also returned for fimbriating a line of division. Submitted as a pile inverted ployé vert, fimbriated Or, the vert portion of the design is too wide to be considered a pile inverted, and the fimbriation is cut off in chief by the chief edge of the shield. Commenters considered whether this could be Per chevron ployé or Chape ployé, but neither of these field divisions can be fimbriated.

16: Rüdiger der Burgenfaust -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per fess embattled azure and argent, a sun argent eclipsed and a castle sable enflamed gules

No changes.

The name is German.


Rüdiger is dated to 1348 in Bahlow, s.n. Rudiger.

"der": the

Burgenfaust: Burg + en + faust

Information for'Burg' and `en' names are documented from:


"burg": rule

(Part Two - Military Roots)

"Military names consisted of roots designating anything military such as weapons, military virtues,

predatory birds and animals, victory, rule, fortresses, treasure, etc. "Battle" furnished the root, "Gund";

battleground, "wal"; battle axe, "bart"; spear, "ger"; sword, "ecke", "bil", "brand", or "schwerd"; and helmet, "helm";

eagle, "arn"; raven, "ram"; bear, "ber"; boar, "ebur"; lion, "leuew", "leon"; stag, "hirsch"; victory, "sieg"; fortress,

"burg"; rule, "wald", rich; treasure, "od"; courage, "mut"; determination, "wille"; strong, "hart"; power, "macht"; etc."

"en": at

2) The suffix "en" essentially meant "at" the terrain feature the "en" followed. An interesting name in which

this suffix is highlighted is the name, "Ziegenbusch". The ancient root, "Ziege" means "goat" and although a literal

translation of "Ziegenbusch" can be "goat bush" there is yet another, and even more interesting! In ancient days,

whenever the wine of the new harvest was ready for drinking, the inn or tavern keepers would hang a piece of

greenery, such as a limb of a bush, on their doorframe to so indicate the new wine was ready. Thus, early on, all

inn or tavern keepers were called Busch or Buschers or Buschman from this hanging out of a green bush. If an

Englishman were asked as to where he was going, he would probably reply, "to the Red Lion" or "to the Silver

Chalice", or to whatever the name of his favorite pub might be. A German so asked might reply, "Zum die Ziegen"

or "at the Goat" and thus the name Ziegenbusch translates, "tavern or inn keeper at (or of) Goat Tavern". This

practice of hanging out some "greenery" whenever the wine of the new harvest is ready to drink is still followed

today in some parts of Germany and Austria; at least it was as late as July 1991, as this author can happily attest!


a German epithet vust (1270) and later a surname (16th century magician Georg Faust) meaning "fist",

The same magician went by Faustus (latin given name).

St Gabriel Report 2190 http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi?2190+0

"The history of the name <Faustus> is slightly complex. The German name derives originally from an older form of

the word <Faust> 'fist'. It is recorded as an epithet as early as 1270, <Wessel mit der vust> "Wessel with the fist".

The best-known bearer of the name is the 16th century magician Georg Faust. He also styled himself <Faustus>,

making a play on the Latin word <faustus> "lucky" [3]. Much earlier in history, the Latin word itself was used as the

basis for a name; there were several early Saints Faustinus and a 5th century Saint Faustus [4]. However, these

names did not remain in use in Germany into the Middle Ages. <Faustus> did not come back into use as a given

name until the 19th century [6]."

[3] Brechenmacher, Josef Karlmann, _Etymologisches Woerterbuch der deutschen Familiennamen_ (Limburg a. d.

Lahn, C. A. Starke-Verlag, 1957-1960), s.n. Faust.


German, Jewish (Ashkenazic), and French (Alsace-Lorraine): from Middle High German fust `fist', presumably a

nickname for a strong or pugnacious person or for someone with a club hand or other deformity of the hand.

German and French (Alsace-Lorraine): from a personal name (Latin Faustus, meaning `fortunate', `lucky', a

derivative of favere `to favor'). This was borne by at least one Christian martyr.


Faust, Georg (probably Knittlingen nr. Bretten, c. 1480-1540 or 1541, Staufen, Breisgau)


Faust's year of birth is given either as 1480/1 or as 1466. Baron (1992) prefers the latter. Johann Georg Faust was

an itinerant alchemist, astrologer and magician of the German Renaissance.
