4: Henry West -New Request for Name Reconsideration Change

OSCAR finds the name on the Atlantia LoI of July 26, 2007 as submitted.

Old Item: Henry Bartholomew Weste, to be released.
No changes.

This was previously submitted and was registered with a second personal name to clear conflict with Henry Best.

Since SENA uses the difference between "West" and "Best" as an example of clear conflict, the submitter would

like to remove the second personal name from his registration.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

The submitter documented the given name from Withycombe (Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names, s.

n. Henry) who shows the spelling Henry or Hanry dated to the thirteenth century. Additional support can be

provided from Reaney and Wilson (Dictionary of English Surnames, s. n. Henry) who cite Richard Henry from

1293. The submitter documents the byname from a listing for Sir Thomas West from Foster's Dictionary of

Feudal Coats of Arms and Pedigrees (p. 205). Additionally, Reaney and Wilson (Dictionary of English Surnames,

s. n. West) cite Goche West from 1197.

5: Jaudin Guillaume and Constanzia Beatrice Rossi -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name (Jaudin Guillaume) registered exactly as it appears in February of 1991, via Atlantia.
OSCAR finds the name (Constanzia Beatrice Rossi) registered exactly as it appears in February of 1991, via Atlantia.

Maison du Estoiles vert

A standing balance within and conjoined to three natural dolphins in annulo Argent.

Client requests authenticity for Prefers French 14-16th Century.
Meaning (House of Green Stars) most important.

Since all household members have devices with borders of green stars (mullets of five points), they want some version of "House of Green Stars."

Per SENA Appendix E, Household names both the designator and substantive elements must follow a single pattern, so sticking with French, submitters prefer Maison du Estoiles vert for the household name. Though the article on Alys's Simple Guide to HOusehold Names said de, a recent precedent in LOAR April 2018 for Charles Fleming says du is correct.

Inn Signs and House Names in 15th Century Paris by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) listed Estoile/Estoille for Star "la maison de l'Estoile" and Vert for green "l'ostel du Pennier vert". http://medievalscotland.org/jes/ParisInnHouseNames/

Maison de Estoilles vert is acceptable if we need toi use Estoilles instead of Estoiles.

If French isn't registerable, House Greenstar, yes single star, would be an acceptable appropriate English alternate to the initial request.

6: Konrad Godes -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2017, via Atlantia.

Argent a cross swallow-tailed gules between in chief a bee azure and a domestic cat rampant purpure.

This is a resubmission after the April 2018 Kingdom return of (no blazon provided at that time):

"This device must be returned due to violation of SENA A.2.C.2, which states that "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." As drawn, it is unclear what type of cross is being depicted. Additionally, commenters were unable to identify the purpure creature in sinister chief."

7: Litta Celori -New Name & New Device

Argent, an anille palewise sable between in fess two coneys sejant respectant azure.

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture most important.

Persona is a persona of mixed heritage from 1st Century BC-1st Century AD, Gaul. The focused area for sources are Germanica Superior, Rhaetia/Raetia, and Belgica. This would fall into Gaulish and Latin naming conventions at the turn of the millenia. Name is take directly from antiquity as it appears in a votive inscription.

Full name is found in antiquity, dated to the early 2nd Century in Germanica Superior (https://edh-www.adw.uni-heidelberg.de/edh/inschrift/HD017161)

Gaulish origin of name and blended onomastics provided in "Effects of Language Contact on Roman and Gaulish Personal Names" by Karin Stűber, University of Zurich, 2007 (https://publishup.uni-potsdam.de/opus4-ubp/frontdoor/deliver/index/docId/691/file/celtic_languages_i n_contact.pdf)

Litta is likely of Latin origin. Celori is like a gentile form of the name Celorius/Celorus and would potentially be Gaulish.

8: Meriorie Matheson -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2014, via Atlantia.

Vert, a badger rampant argent marked sable and in chief three hawk's bells Or.

Consulting Herald: Etienne Sea Stag

This is a resubmission after the December 2018 Kingdom return of Vert, a badger rampant sable marked argent, in chief three hawk bells Or:

"This must be returned for violation of SENA A.3.B.4.a, which states that "Charges must have good contrast with the background on which they are placed." The badger, being primarily sable, does not have good contrast with the vert field, despite the fairly extensive argent detailing."</blockquote

9: Rebekah Rossi Guillaume -New Name & New Device

Vert, a stag's head cabossed argent and a bordure argent mulletty vert.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for 16th/17th Cent English.
Meaning (combination of parents SCA last names) most important.

William Rossy, married on 06 Jun 1611 in London, England. Batch #M00150-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5K9-LMV

Elisabet Guillaume, female, christened on 25 Dec 1642 in Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. Batch #C90125-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XBTX-KBF

English allows for I/Y Swaps

According to SENA appendix C, Dutch and English can be mixed.

According to SENA appendix A, English allows for a naming pattern using double last names

This should be okay for Rebekah Rossi Guillaume

If it needs to change to Rebekah Guillaume Rossi that would also be acceptable.
