Cecilie die Ärtztin. Name and device. Gules, on a lozenge throughout argent, a bat-winged dolphin haurient contourny sable.
Gwyddno of Tempio. Badge. Gules, a demi-dragon rampant Or issuant from a ford proper.
This submission raised a question on administrative policy; can a submitter apply a free resubmission for an name to the submission of a badge. Free resubmissions for names are available from two different actions. First, a name only submission is returned outright or when both the name and armory is returned. Second, a holding name has been assigned in order to register armory when the submitted name required return. In the first case, the free name resubmission cannot be applied to a badge since armory cannot be registered without a registered name. In the second case, the administrative handbook specifically states holding names may be changed for free. If a submitter chooses to accept a holding name instead of resubmitting, this has the same effect as the submitted name being registered, no return exists and no free resubmission exists. Therefore, the swapping of a free resubmission of a name for an armory submission is not possible.

Lindenwood, Canton of. Name and device. Per chevron throughout gules and azure, a chevron throughout and in base a cinquefoil inverted within a laurel wreath Or.
Maridonna Benvenuti. Name.
Morgan of Rhymney. Device. Argent, three bull's heads caboshed sable.

Angelica Winter of the Willows. Name and device. Purpure, two standing seraphs and a willow tree eradicated argent.
Anna Elizabeth von Irmtraut. Name.
Beatrice of Tir Ysgithr. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Erminois, a bordure sable charged with six annulets Or.
The armory was submitted under the name Beatrice Sforza.
Cain Saethydd. Name and device. Sable, on a bend cotised argent, three arrows inverted sable.
Submitted as Cain y Saethydd, however when used as a byname, an occupation usually will not be preceded by the definite article. Therefore, we have eliminated the inappropriate "y".
Cáemgen Ó Tuathail. Name and device. Argent, a cross barby quarterly gules and vert, a chief embattled gules.
Submitted as Coemgen Ó Tuathail, Coemgen as documented from Withycombe. However, while she is an excellent source for names in English, she is not as reliable when it comes to names that are not English. The correct Gaelic form is Cáemgen which we have substituted.
Chad Silverswan. Name and device. Per pall inverted argent, sable and azure, two swans rousant respectant counterchanged and a Latin cross argent.
Damiana McDade. Name change from Damiana Fairandgray and device. Per fess gules and azure, a fess embattled between three roses and a cross crosslet fitchy argent.
Her former name Damiana Fairandgray, is hereby released.
Danielle d'Avignon. Device. Per pale argent and purpure, two unicorns combattant counterchanged.
Danilo Danilovich. Name and device. Per pale sable and purpure, in saltire a rapier inverted and a rose slipped and leaved argent.
Donald Dalamare Storm. Name and device. Sable, in saltire a palmer's staff Or and a sword argent, on a chief triangular Or a tower sable.
Eibhilin ni Mhaghnuis. Name and device. Per fess purpure and vert, a demi-sun issuant from the line of division and six fleurs-de-lys, a bordure Or.
Submitted as Aidlan ni Maghnus, no documentation was presented, and none could be found for Aidlan as a period name. Since the submitter's forms explicitly said that she would take Eibhilin, which is a period given name, we have substituted that. Additionally, we have put the patronymic into the correct genitive form.
Edward MacMillan. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Emrys Dragon. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Fiona ní Dhraighneán. Name and device. Per chevron inverted argent and sable, a heart gules and two roses argent.
Submitted as Fiona O Draighneán, for Gaelic names the entire name has to be internally consistent as to gender. We have corrected this problem.
Galen Brouwer. Name and device. Purpure, a Thor's hammer argent.
Submitted as Galen de Brouwer, since Brouwer is the word that describes he "person who brews", the de is out of place. We have, therefore, removed it. Some questions were raised as to how well known a classical Greek physician would be in medieval England. Writings by Galen or attributed to him formed much of the basis of the medieval medical literature (Siraisi, Medieval and Early Renaissance Medicine: An Introduction to Knowledge and Practice, pp. 6, 10, 71-72, etc). Even very late in period, Galen was so familiar to the popular audience that Shakespeare used his name as a shorthand tag to denote a doctor (Merry Wives of Windsor, Act II, Scene 3).
Ian Griffen the Archer. Name.
Submitted as Iain Griffen the Archer, Iain is a Gaelic spelling of which cannot be combined with an English name. We have substituted the Anglicized spelling, Ian.
Katherine Maniske a' Nynetails. Name change from holding name Katherine of Tir Ysgithr.
Murdoch Montgomery. Name and device. Sable, a decrescent between three mullets of four points, one and two, argent.
Odo de Paynes. Device. Per fess embattled purpure and vert, three goblets and a wolf statant argent.
Ragnarr Grabarr. Name.
Rhiannon of Faeroe. Name and device. Per chevron purpure and argent, three triquetras counterchanged.

Sara of Faeroe. Name.
Sarolta of Tir Ysgithr. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Per pale argent and vert, a lotus flower in profile counterchanged, on a chief triangular purpure a decrescent and an increscent argent.
The armory was submitted under the name Sarolta Lalayvna Shahin.
Sean Donald of Caithness. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Tristan Dragonheart. Name change from holding name Sean of Twin Moons.
William MacAndro. Device. Azure, a claymore inverted, on a chief invected argent four decrescents vert.
Ysabet ferch Gwydyon. Name and device. Azure, a crescent bendwise Or, sustained by a cubit arm palewise proper, a bordure Or.
Adriana Broussard. Device. Purpure estencely Or, a bend sinister between a cross moline disjointed and a sun in its splendor argent.
Áed Fáid. Device. Sable, on a bend sinister argent between two flames Or three eyes fesswise azure.
Bright Hills, Barony of. Badge. (Fieldless) On a mountain of three peaks couped sable, in fess a gauntlet fesswise reversed and a gauntlet fesswise argent.
Caitilín Mhór. Name.
Found on the LoI as Caitilín inghean Móire, it was originally submitted as Caitilin Mór, and changed in kingdom to the form found on the LoI. The originally submitted Caitilín Mór which uses the descriptive mór, is perfectly acceptable simply by applying the appropriate lenition to the adjective: Caitilín Mhór. We have done so, restoring the name to something very close to what was originally submitted.
Caterina da Salerno. Name and device. Per pale argent and sable, a pale fusilly azure between two lions combattant counterchanged.
Eoghan Òg Mac Labhrainn. Name and device. Checky vert and Or, two lions combattant, each tail nowed and a mouse couchant, an orle of roundels argent.
Gregory Blount. Name.
Gwyneth MacDonagh. Name and device. Per chevron Or and purpure, two roses purpure barbed and seeded vert and an increscent Or.
A question was raised as to the acceptability of Gweyneth as a given name. The LoAR of March 1996 said:
"The only period evidence available for the given name is the citation Gwineth ver' Robert 1577 given by Morgan & Morgan, s.n. Gwynedd. However, they show that the surname Gwynedd occasionally appears with nn in the 16th century. The names are probably not related, but this orthographic variation still offers some support for the possibility that Gwyneth is an acceptable variant of the attested given name."
Hans Van Hoorn. Name.
Lorenzo il Confuso. Device. Per bend sinister argent and azure, a drawn bow and arrow reversed between three mullets counterchanged.
Ragnarr Blackhammer. Name and device. Per pale gules and sable, on a bezant a hammer sable.
Submitted on the LoI as Ragnarr Svartahamar, it was corrected on a later LoI to Ragnarr Blackhammer.
Riocárd Ó Donnghaile. Name and device. Per fess azure and argent, a tyger rampant counterchanged.
Robert Runewald. Name and device. Per pale azure and Or, semy of arrows inverted, a crab, on a bordure six mullets all counterchanged.
Roswitha of Suanesfeld. Name and device. Argent, a swan rousant sable, a bordure dovetailed sable mullety argent.
Sine ní Dheaghaidh. Badge. (Fieldless) A honeybee bendwise Or.
Thorbjorn Kristiansson. Name.
Victoria of Alfriston. Device. Ermine, three peacock feathers bendwise sinister vert, a bordure purpure.
Wolfgang Schwarzwald. Device. Argent, three trees blasted, on a chief sable a wolf passant argent.
A possible conflict was called against Christiana Blackhurst, Argent three oak trees and on a chief sable three acorns argent. There is one CD for the change of type of the tertiaries. The second change must come from the difference between a tree and a tree blasted. In the May 1993 LoAR Laurel said:
"[A tree eradicated and in chief a <charge>] This is clear of [A tree blasted and eradicated]. There’s a CD for the charge in chief, and a CD for the blasting of the tree (Sileas ni Chinaid, May, 1993).
Precedent has been mixed, but there was in period a distinction between a tree and tree blasted. Therefore, we are upholding the ruling of May 1993 and granting a CD between a tree and a tree blasted, giving this submission the necessary second CD.
Andreas Björn. Name and device. Per fess argent and sable, a bear rampant counterchanged maintaining a key azure.
Submitted as Andreas Björnlik, no documentation was presented and none could be found for this formation (Bear-corpse) as a period byname. However, since Old Norse used Fox as a byname, Björn by itself no more than one weirdness. We are dropping the lik in order to register the name and the armory.
Astrid Eriksdotter af Tafle. Name and device. Per pale azure and argent, two demi-horses passant addorsed issuant from the line of partition and in chief two shamrocks, all within an orle, counterchanged.
Fearghus mac Ébhearáird. Name and device. Azure, in pale two lions couchant argent, each maintaining a thistle Or.
Helen av Vinninge. Name.
Helena von Eltz. Name and device. Vert, an owl affronty Or, a bordure Or crusilly vert.
Isabel du Talus. Name and device. Argent, a natural beaver courant proper between a cloud and a base wavy azure.
Karna Persdotter. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Magdalena Eskilsdotter. Name and device. Argent, a chevron Or fimbriated between four crosses bottony three and one sable, a bordure gules.
Poukka, Canton of. Name and arms. Argent, a horse salient and in chief three laurel wreaths vert.
A possible problem was mentioned with the name for this group since it appears to be similar to the word Pooka, which is an English malevolent spirit. There are often words in one language which appear to be similar to a word in another language. Since the group name is formed correctly in Finnish, the and two words do not sound the same in Finnish, we see no problem with registering this.
Seamus Gillemore. Name and device. Sable, a brazier argent flaming Or.
Found in the LoI as Seamus Mac Giolla Mhir, it was originally submitted as Seamus Gilmour, and changed in kingdom to the form found on the LoI, since this combined Gaelic and English orthography in the same name. However, documentation has been provided for Gillemore as a given and as a byname, and as a given name with a clearly Gaelic byname. Therefore, we see no problem is restoring the name to a form much closer to what was originally submitted.
Sven MacCriomhthainn. Name.
Thomas Langland. Name and device. Per pale argent and sable, a cross crosslet counterchanged.
Þorkill Þormo sson. Name.
Axemoor, Barony of. Badge. Sable, in bend sinister an axe inverted reversed and an axe both bendwise sinister Or between two scarpes, overall a column argent.
Axemoor, Barony of. Order name and badge for Company of Hussars of Axemoor. Sable, in bend sinister an axe inverted reversed and an axe both bendwise sinister Or between two scarpes, overall a shamshir inverted bendwise argent.
Submitted as an order name for Hussars of Axemoor, it lacked a designator. We have added the designator acceptable to the Baron in order to avoid returning the order name.
Brigit MacGregor. Name Change from holding name Mary of Meridies.
Elianor de Morland. Name and device. Argent semy-de-lys sable, a pale purpure overall a swan naiant contourny sable.
Elspeth of Hampshire. Device. Gules, a butterfly Or, on a chief argent three saltorels gules.
Katryne MacIntosh the Strange. Name.
Thora Wolframsdochter. Name and device. Argent, a cat sejant between in pale two Norse sun-crosses, a sinister tierce raguly sable.
Submitted as Thora Wolframsdottir, Wolfram is not a Norse given name, but rather German. As such it cannot be combined with a Norse patronymic suffix. We have changed the suffix to a German form.
Aeleis Roscelin de Foxcote. Name.
Alastair Maclennan. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and vert, a wolf statant contourny and a wolf statant counterchanged, a chief pean.
Submitted as Alasdair Maclennan, this mixes English and Gaelic orthography in the same name. We have changed the given name to the Anglicized Alastair.
Alexandra de la Pomerai. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Aliena Goodeve. Device. Azure estoilly Or, a unicorn rampant argent charged on the shoulder with an increscent gules, a demi-sun issuant from base Or.
Since we give a CD between a sun and an estoile, this does not fall afoul of the "similar but not identical charges" (often called "the sword and dagger") rule.
Anne Renaud. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Antonia da Troina. Household name for Dolphinsmere Hall.
Since Reaney and Wilson document Dolphin as a period English first name (to at least 12th century), Dolphinsmere could be considered as a lake belonging to a man named Dolphin.
Arianwen Teague. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Arianwen Teague called Seeker. As noted in the LoI, Madeleine Moinet dit Boismenu's name was registered because 'called' is a legitimate documentary form in Latin, German and French. The name submitted here is none of those languages. The commentary that Master Da'ud provided (and which is cited in the LoI) also shows 'called' names as, for want of a better term, proper aliases (John Smith called John Doe called Richard Roe) rather than common nouns (John Smith called Bandit called Fellow). "Seeker" doesn't fit into these parameters.
Björn hinn Heppni. Household name for House Skaðaholt.
Submitted as House Skaðarholt, it was incorrectly put into the genitive. We have corrected this.
Catherine Margaret Oakley of Rivendale. Device. Per pale vert and sable, a Catherine's wheel and an oak leaf, a chief triangular argent.
Cnut Ragnarsson. Badge. (Fieldless) A compass star per pale argent and gules, within and conjoined to an annulet sable.

The armory was submitted under the name Colin Campbell.
Einar Gormsson. Name and device. Per fess embattled argent and gules, a bow fesswise azure and an open book argent.
Eirik Thorkelsson. Name and device. Argent, three arrows in fess azure.
Elspeth Glendonwyn of Kirkaldy. Name and device. Vert estencelly argent, a Lacy knot, a bordure Or.
Found on the LoI as Elspeth Glendonwen of Kirkaldy, it was originally submitted as Elspeth Glendonwyn of Kirkaldy, and changed in kingdom. Since Glendownwyn is a geographic surname, and purely geographic surnames, unlike personal descriptives, do not modify for gender, we have changed it back to the form originally submitted.
Elspeth Macleod. Name.
Elspeth Miriella of Wod Hill. Name.
Eoin Caimbeul. Name and device. Gyronny argent and gules, a hawk's head erased sable within a bordure counterchanged.
Submitted as Eoin Cambell, this mixes Gaelic and English orthography in the same name. We have substituted the Gaelic form of Campbell.
Essylt ferch Bronwyn. Device. Per bend sinister vert and sable, a decrescent argent and a double rose Or and gules, a bordure argent.
Please instruct the submitter to draw the bordure wider.
Finnvarr de Taahe. Badge. Azure, a mullet of six points within an orle of mullets of six points Or.
This has been reblazoned to better reflect the emblazon.
Galen Stuart. Name.
Some questions were raised as to how well known a classical Greek physician would be in medieval Scotland. Writings by Galen or attributed to him formed much of the basis of the medieval medical literature (Siraisi, Medieval and Early Renaissance Medicine: An Introduction to Knowledge and Practice, pp. 6, 10, 71-72, etc). Even very late in period, Galen was so familiar to the popular audience that Shakespeare used his name as a shorthand tag to denote a doctor (Merry Wives of Windsor, Act II, Scene 3).

Geoffrey of Wroxeter. Name.
Giulia Isabella da Venezia. Device. Counter-ermine, a bend cotised argent.
Godfrey Avonsford. Device. Or, two horses combattant sable, on a chief enarched gules three triskelions of legs Or.

Gwennan Myngrudd. Name.
Halfdan Blackanvil. Name and device. Argent, a chevron Or fimbriated between three anvils sable.
Submitted as Halfdan the Blackanvil, since the submitter is not an anvil, we have dropped the inappropriate the.
Heinrich Von Brandenburg. Name and device. Per pale argent and gules, an eagle displayed counterchanged.
Henry Best. Device. Azure, a goat clymant, a bordure embattled argent.
Illana Garcia Blanca. Name.
Inner Sea, Shire of. Device. Azure, a lighthouse argent enflamed proper within in base a laurel wreath Or.
Magnus of Falkirk. Device change. Or, a pale vert, overall two arrows inverted in saltire sable.
His former device Per chevron argent and gules, two cockatrices combattant gules and three mullets of eight points, two and one, argent., is hereby released.
Matilda Hanscombe. Name.
Middle, Kingdom of. Order name for Order of the Greenwood Company and badge. (Fieldless) Upon a hurst of pine trees vert, a pheon inverted Or.
Note: Order of the Red Company is registered to the Middle Kingdom, and therefore this usage is grandfathered to them. Normally we would not register a name with two designators.
Middle, Kingdom of the. Badge. (Fieldless) A pheon inverted within and conjoined to an annulet Or.
Midewinde, Shire of. Name.
Moira MacVey. Device. Quarterly gules and argent, two hearts gules, a bordure purpure
Nina Mirovna Korsakova. Household name for House Vulpecula (see RETURNS for badge).
Nordleigh, Canton of. Name and device. Sable, three squirrels rampant surrounding a laurel wreath Or.
We are aware this is not a very elegant blazon. However, the laurel wreath is significantly smaller than the squirrels, and we wanted to make it clear which was the primary charge.
Oonami Yoshirou Kageyoshi. Device. Sable, three crescents horns to center, conjoined at the tips argent.
Owain MacCabe. Household name for Brotherhood of the Teutonic Archers.
Owlhaven, Shire of. Name.
Submitted as Owl's Haven, Shire of, a period English place of this type would be one word and normally not use the genitive within a compound name. We have corrected this in order to register the group name.
Randolph Lee. Name and device. Gules, on a pale Or a wolf rampant maintaining a sword and shield sable, a bordure Or.
Rowena de Montacute. Name.
Submitted as Rowenna de Montacute, no documentation was presented and none could be found for Rowenna as a period name. We have, therefore, changed it to the registerable Rowena. However, please inform her that Rowena does not seem to have been used by human beings in our period; it is an `SCA-compatible' Latinization of a name used by Geoffrey of Monmouth for a fictional character.
Rowena of Falkirk. Name and device. Vert, a pheon and a chief indented Or.
Found on the LoI as Rowenna of Falkirk, what was submitted was Rowena of Flakirk. We have restored it to the original form. However, please inform her that Rowena does not seem to have been used by human beings in our period; it is an `SCA-compatible' Latinization of a name used by Geoffrey of Monmouth for a fictional character.
SkallaGormr Berserkr. Per pale sable and gules, a frauenadler displayed with human arms maintaining in chief two swords argent.
Submitted as Skalla Gorm the Frenzied, this name had several problems. First, the Frenzied does not follow the pattern of epithets documented in the LoI from Bassi, none of which are past participles. Given the number of times we have returned bynames for using past participles, barring documentation we cannot see using it here. We have substituted the closest Norse epithet in its place. Additionally, we have correctly compounded the given name.
Stronfels, Shire of. Name.
Tryphena von Stargard. Device. Purpure, a ram statant argent and on a chief ermine three harps gules.
Trystan of Anglesey. Name and device. Or, on a pale gules between an open scroll vert and a quill pen sable, three lozenges Or.
Winifred Rose Hammond. Name.
Adelaide Ehrhardt. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Ælric Kyrri. Device. Azure, a cross arrondi between four roundels, a bordure argent.
While some commenters were concerned that the cross arrondi was "modern" in appearance, in fact this type cross was found on the Bayeux Tapestry.
Africa O'Brien. Name and device. Argent, three butterflies sable, a chief rayonny vert.
Alaric der Jaeger. Device. Per pale azure and argent, on a triangle inverted an ankh, a bordure embattled, all counterchanged.

Collette Ewartburgh. Device. Or, in pale three estoilles azure two and one and a sheep statant sable, all between flaunches indented vert.
Damian d'Antioche. Name and device. Gules, a fess fusilly between three fleurs-de-lys argent.
Submitted as Damian d'Antioch, this combines English spelling of the place name with a French preposition. Since that combined two languages in one name element we have substituted the French spelling of Antioch.
Denison ap Morgan. Device. Per chevron inverted invected sable and gules, a reremouse displayed and three fleurs-de-lys argent.
Diarmuid mac Nessa. Name.
Elaine Bearnais. Name.
Submitted as Elaine de Bearnais, the de was a misreading of Reaney and Wilson. The meaning the man from Béarn, which the submitter wished, would not have the de. We have, therefore, removed it.
Gavin of Windkeep. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Argent, an eagle's head erased sable between in fess two roses gules slipped sable, stems crossed in base, a chief embattled azure.
The armory was submitted under the name Gavin Blackthorn.
Ingvarr of Izborsk. Name.

Josette Claudin Duran. Name and device. Checky azure and argent, a dance Or and overall a frog vert.
Katrine Vanora of Maidstone. Alternate name Coemri nEithne.
Submitted as Coemri ni Eithne, an attested form of the patronymic byname is found in O'Brien's index of tribes and families, as Cenél nEithne. We have substituted the attested form.
Killian MacKenzie. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Kolfinna Fraser. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Leila bint Zeidun. Name and device. Per bend sinister sable and argent, an hourglass argent and a rose gules slipped and leaved bendwise sinister proper.
Máire ní Chonaill. Name.
Submitted as Máire ní Conaill, the name needs to be put into the genitive after the patronymic particle. We have done so.

Maximilian Kern. Name.
Regan Davis. Name.
Robert Marchet. Name and device. Argent, a cross crosslet fitchy sable, in chief three roses purpure barbed and seeded proper.

Thorfinnr inn vegsvinni Ingason. Device. Argent, two falcons rising wings addorsed respectant, maintaining between them a stone sable.
This is clear of Edward Gayer (SCA) Argent, two vultures combattant, wings elevated and addorsed and a chief engrailed sable., with one CD for type of primary charge and one for the addition of the chief.
Timothy O'Brien. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Turgeis av Markland. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Warmin of Belshire Household name House of Belshire.
Found on the LoI as House Belshire, it was originally submitted as House of Belshire and changed in kingdom. Since House of Place follows documented period forms, such as House of York or House of Capulet, we have returned this to the originally submitted form.
Willowgate, Shire of. Name.
nan Crioch Tuatha, Stronghold of. Badge. (Fieldless) A sealion issuant from a hulk gules.
Dulcinea Steinhauser. Device. Azure, a pegasus segreant contourny Or in dexter chief a cross of four arrowheads conjoined at the points argent, a gore Or.

Eric Mulrooney. Name and device. Per fess wavy gules and vert, three cups Or and a castle triple-towered argent.

Submitted as Fiona ni Donogh, the patronymic was incorrectly constructed. We have put it into the correct form.
Haakon Bjornsson. Badge. Barry Or and gules, three antlers conjoined at their bases in pall inverted a bordure rayonny sable.
Havicia O’Byrne Brannagh. Name.
Submitted on the LoI as Havicia O’Bryne of Branaigh, O'Byrne was typoed. We have corrected this to the original spelling. Additionally, the spelling Branaigh is a Gaelic spelling, which violates our policy on mixed English/Gaelic names. We have put it into English in order to register the name.
Isabella de la Griffon d’Aquitaine. Name and device. Quarterly vert and gules, a griffin segreant, a bordure Or.
Submitted as Isabella de la Gryffin d’Aquitaine, no documented was presented, nor could any be found, for Gryffin to be spelling in that manner in French, which is required to match the de la. We have, therefore, changed it to the closest documentable French form.
Jan Lisowski. Name and device. Per pale sable and vert, in pale a plate and a wolf’s head affronty Or.
Johanna of Gleann Dubh. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Vert, three annulets interlaced one and two between three roundels Or.
The armory was submitted under the name Lleulyth o’r Cymry verch Llewfron mab Dafydd.
Katherine Rose Jenkins. Name.
Lorn Mac Ewen. Name and device. Argent, the trunk of a tree sprouting three slips proper issuant from base, on a chief azure three boars passant argent.
Submitted as Lorn Mac Ewen of Otter, this combines the clan name and the name of the seat of that clan. We do not permit that, as it is a format found only in association with clan chiefs. We have dropped the place name in order to register the rest of the name and the armory.
Margaret Anne O’Donnell. Name.
Marie Genevieve of Aquitaine. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Pyotr Ivanovich Drozinski the Fool. Name and device. Per chevron argent and vert, three roundels one and two gules, azure and vert, issuant from base a tree blasted argent.
Questions were raised regarding having the three roundels in three different tinctures. While we were unable, in a quick look, to find an example of the same charge in three different tinctures, the Dictionary of British Armory, 2 shows the arms of Milo Fitzwalter of Glouster as Gules, two bends the upper Or and lower argent., making the use of the same charge in three different tinctures only one weirdness.
Severin Visconti. Name change from Severin Mattazanni.
His former name Severin Mattazanni, is hereby released.
Shauna MacLeod. Name and device. Vert, a bear rampant to sinister, on a chief Or a Celtic cross vert.
Bronwen Eleri of Cardiff. Name.
Submitted as Krokar the Crooked, this uses the past participle form which we do not use. Since his forms said he would take the form Dag Krokar, and he would take changes, we have substituted Dag Krókr and put Krókr into the proper form.
David of Rottweil. Name and device. Checky argent and sable, a heart and a chief gules.
Duncan Richardson. Name.
Fiona Cattanach. Device. Per fess sable and gules, a dog statant reguardant argent and a bowen cross Or.

Madihah al-Bagdadiyya. Name change from Marie von Zacher and device change. Per bend sinister purpure and Or, an Arabian lamp reversed and a sword inverted bendwise sinister counterchanged.
Her former name, Marie von Zacher, is hereby released, and her former device Gules, a mortar with pestle argent., is hereby retained as a badge.
Muirne ní Chatháin. Device. Per pale vert and sable, an eagle displayed between in bend two increscents Or.
Sunara al Badawiyya. Name and device. Or, on a fess sable between four tassels gules, a lute in profile reversed Or.
A question was raised about the use of the tassel as a charge. While no documentation was presented for a tassel as an independent charge in period, there are undated references to it as a heraldic charge, and dated references to it as a period item. Therefore, with this registration, we are hereby allowing it for SCA registration as compatible with period style. Our thanks to al-Jamal for providing this information.
Wulfgang Kiel. Name.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Gunnora Hallakarva. Device. Per fess gules and azure, a catamount passant and a kestrel sustaining a garb Or.
As drawn the garb is too large to be considered a maintained charge, which makes it a sustained charge. However, that makes this submission "slot machine", which three different charges (catamount, kestrel, and garb) in the same group, which violates our rules. Therefore, this must be returned. If the garb was drawn smaller it would take care of this problem.
Beatrice Sforza. Name.
The surname Sforza is one of those names such as Hohenstaufen which are so closely associated with a single sovereign royal family as to be presumptuous in their use. Indeed, in times past it was one of those that were used as an exemplar for that category of restricted names. (The name of the dynasty was derived from the nickname of its founder and in period was associated closely with the immediate family of the sovereign Dukes of Milan.) The use of the Sforza surname is tantamount to a claim to being from the immediate family of the sovereign Dukes of Milan and is not allowed under RFS VI.1 The armory was registered under the holding name Beatrice of Tir Ysgithr.
Ceannselaigh ni Laoghaire. Name.
No evidence was presented and none could be found for Ceannselaigh as a given name. Without such evidence, the name must be returned, since every registered SCA name must contain a given name.
Connor Alexander Maxwell. Device. Argent, a compass star within and conjoined to an annulet between two dragons salient respectant, wings close, azure.
This is being returned for a redraw. As the dragons are drawn they are not really salient, in fact they are not in any real defined heraldic position. Furthermore, with their wings downs down like this and being so cramped in the sides of the shield, the dragons are more difficult to recognize as dragons than they should be.
Domingo Diego Diaz de la Vega e Martin. Name.
This is an appeal of a Laurel return of October 1995 for the use of three bynames. The submitter maintains that only two bynames are used here, citing Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, Roderick, son of James of Bivar, where the extended byname (son of James of Bivar) is a single element to distinguish this particular James from others. He claims as a result, one of his two bynames is Diaz de la Vega, and the other is Martin.
However, the argument from Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar is incorrect. The name of El Cid did use the patronymic Diaz, but the de Bivar is a separate geographic byname. He could be and was referred to a Rodrigo Diaz or Rodrigo de Bivar. Domingo Diego de la Vega e Martin would be an unusual, but not too unlikely, late period name. Domingo Diaz de la Vega would be a fine name from the 12th or 13th century on, as would Domingo Martín de la Vega. But, barring evidence Domingo Diego Diaz de la Vega e Martin, is not registerable.
Edward MacMillan. Device. Or, a unicorn purpure and a lion sable combattant.
This conflicts with Thorin Njalsson Or, a lion rampant guardant sable maintaining a claymore proper., Buchanan of that ilk Or, a lion rampant sable., and Flanders Or, a lion rampant sable. Each gets just one CD for adding the unicorn.
Emrys Dragon. Device. Gyronny Or and purpure, a dragon segreant argent.
This conflicts with Brychan Tammas Gyronny Or and azure, a dragon segreant argent., and Moira Kellahan Per pale azure and purpure, a wyvern erect argent., with one CD for change of field.
Leonide Rurikov Dainiovich. Name and device. Ermine, a lion dormant to sinister gules.
The name has multiple problems. The spelling Leonide needs some period documentation. The name in most transliteration styles would be Leonid and is dated to 1585-6 in Wickenden (122). Rurikov is a plausible variant spelling of Riurikov, dated 1456-71 in Ibid (198). No documentation was presented for Dainiovich, which does not appear to be a Russian word. First, the modern Russian word for a Dane is datchanin (it is unlikely that there is even a period word). The resulting (hypothetical) patronymic byname would be Datchaninov(ich), which appears to be quite unlikely, and certainly not a period form.
Period constructions, are usually based on the place name (not the race) and thus a construction that indicated Danish ancestry (as the LoI indicated was desired) would be formed from the word Daniia (Denmark -- in modern Russian). The construction might be Danyn or Danynskii but both of these are extremely unlikely. He needs to document the actual byname desired or show a pattern of the use of foreign place name construction in Russian (and then follow that pattern). The same problem was faced previously in Laurel's return of Vladimir Kambionets. Leonid Rurikov, on the other hand, would be fine.
The armory conflicts with Glanwyn Ty Meillionen Ermine, an African lion cub couchant guardant gules, in its teeth the stem of a four-leafed shamrock vert. There is one CD for reversing the cat, but nothing for the maintained shamrock.
Lothar le Coi. Device. Vert, on a lozenge within a mascle argent, a crab sable.
Unfortunately, you cannot blazon your way out of a conflict. While blazoned as above on the letter of intent, an equally valid blazon would be Vert, on a lozenge argent, a crab sable within a mascle vert. That conflicts with Amber Lang Vert, on a lozenge argent, a domestic cat sejant sable., with only one CD, for the assorted changes to tertiaries. Additionally, if this blazon is used, the device now falls afoul of RfS XI.4. (Arms of Pretense. "Armory that uses charges which themselves are charged in such a way as to appear to be arms of pretense is considered presumptuous. Period and modern heraldic practice asserts a claim to land or property by surmounting an individual's usual armory with a display of armory associated with that claim. Such arms of pretense are most commonly placed on an inescutcheon or lozenge..... For this reason, such charges may not be charged in such a way as to suggest independent arms. Such charges may not contain an ordinary that terminates at the edge, or more than one charge."
Sarolta Lalayvna Shahin. Name.
No documentation was presented and none was found for Lalayvna Shahin outside of a statement in the LoI that it was allegedly Bulgarian. Without documentation the name element cannot be used. The armory was registered under the holding name Sarolta of Tir Ysgithr.
Sean Donald of Caithness. Device. Azure, a bear statant gardant argent, antlered Or.
This conflicts with Septentria, Barony of Gules, a bear passant argent., with one CD for change of field. While there is a prior precedent granting a CD (for rabbits), in the case of Donata Ivanovna Basistova, May, 1995); the LoAR stated that visually the antlers were similar to adding wings. This is not the case here. Furthermore, adding wings is a period practice so could be considered a valid form of cadency. It is extremely rare to see beasts with added horns like this in period armory. Therefore both historically (barring evidence to the contrary) and visually adding the attires is not worth a CD.
Sionnan Mac an t-Sabhaisigh. Name and device. Argent, six lions rampant sable.
The SCA given name must have been used as a given name in period. The only documentation presented for Sionnan was for its use as a surname. The closest name we could find was Seanán. However, that is a masculine name, and a bigger change than we feel comfortable making. If a feminine Gaelic given name is selected, the byname will have to be modified, since the byname is a masculine patronym.
Unfortunately, this lovely device conflicts with Houri the Savage Argent, a lion rampant sable armed, orbed and langued gules. There is only one CD for the number of charges.
Tiernan Diego de las Aguas. Name and device. Barry wavy argent and vert, a cross formy throughout sable.
This name has several serious problems, either of which would be grounds for return. First, Tiernan is a 20th century post-spelling-reform spelling of the earlier Tighearnán. Second, in either spelling, this would mix a Gaelic given name with Spanish, which, barring documentation, does not seem likely. Third, we were unable to find the byname Aguas. There are generic locative names del Rio, in particular, but of the waters is too vague for Spanish names, particularly as such bynames are rather uncommon in the first place. Therefore, we have no choice but to return the name.
The armory conflicts with the badge for the Teutonic Order, A Latin cross formy sable fimbriated argent. There is neither a CD for the tincture nor for the couping.
Tiernan Diego de las Aguas. Badge. Sable, on a mountain of four peaks couped argent, two tilting lances crossed in saltire sable.
This is being returned for a redraw. While blazoned as a mountain of four peaks, it was not identifiable as such; more people thought it was a crown than any other charge.
Tristan d'Alsace. Device. Azure, three elephants' heads cabossed argent.
This conflicts with Edward the Incorrigible Azure, an African elephant’s head caboshed argent, maintaining in its trunk a seax bendwise Or., with one CD for number of charges, but nothing for the maintained seax.
Emelyn Pacok. Device change. Purpure, a peacock pavanated to base argent.
This conflicts with Order of the Argent Peacock of the Barony of One Thousand Eyes) (Fieldless) A peacock pavanated to base contourny argent. There is one CD for the field.
Karna Persdotter. Device. Vert, three square weaver's tablets set bendwise, a bordure Or.
This conflicts with Marcel d’Armand Vert, two lozenges in bend within a bordure Or. The holes, which are scarcely visible in the full sized emblazon, and the slightly rounded corners of the bendwise tablets are not sufficient to distinguish them from lozenges (the PicDic also suggests that the tablets were not used in period armory, precluding any CD based on period heraldic distinction), so the only effective difference is adding the third lozenge shape in sinister chief.
Pietari Pentinpoika Uv. Household name for S/V Aarnimetsän Ankka.
On the September 1992 LoAR Laurel said:
[Iron Horde of Cathanar] "As in the case of the Company of the Checquered Shield of Western Seas (LoAR of 19 Jan 91), the use of the SCA branch name implies this is an official group of the Barony of Cathanar. As the submitter doesn't represent Cathanar, he may not style his household in a way that suggests official sanction. (If he has official sanction from Cathanar, the name should be registered to Cathanar.)" (Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, LoAR September 1992, p. 46)
In this case, the household name means Duck of Aarnimetsä, and thereby has the same problem as the others, since Aarnimetsä is the registered name of a barony in Drachenwald. Therefore, we must return this as well.
Alexandra de la Pomerai. Device. Or, an apple tree eradicated fructed proper, a bordure azure.
This conflicts with Katerine of Willowmere Or, a willow proper and a base wavy azure.," with a CD for changing the peripheral, but nothing for changing the type of tree
Anne Renaud. Device. Azure, in pall a moon in her plentitude between three mullets Or.
While blazoned on the LoI as Azure, a moon in her plentitude between three mullets Or., the blazon above better reflects the emblazon, since all of the charges are the same size. Therefore, this conflicts with Finnvarr de Taahe Azure, a mullet of six points environed by six mullets of six points, all Or., reblazoned on this LoAR to better reflect the emblazon as Azure, a mullet of six points within an orle of mullets of six points Or. This is a single group with a single CD for number, nothing for five vs. six points and nothing for changing the type of less than half the group.
As for the cited conflict with Palau, Azure, a bezant., Laurel precedent states that there is no difference between a roundel and a moon. However, RfS X.4.e states that "Types of charges considered to be separate in period, for example a lion and an heraldic tiger, will be considered different. While this matter is not relevant in this case, we are directing Palimpsest to issue a rules letter to discuss our application and possible modification of this rule.
Arianwen Teague. Name and device. Checky vert and Or, on a chief sable a lion passant regardant contourney between two hearts Or.
This is neither field-primary armory or a simple case (for X.4.j.ii). Therefore it conflicts with Elspeth Turnbull, Argent ermined gules, on a chief sable three cinquefoils Or., Marc Beaucoeur Lozengy bendwise gules and Or, on a chief sable three oak slips fructed Or., and Graham, Duke of Montrose (real-world armory) Or, on a chief sable three escallops Or. In each case there is a CD for the field, but nothing for changing the type only of the tertiaries.
Colin Campbell. Name.
This conflicts with Sir Colin Campbell of Crimean War and Sepoy Mutiny (among others) fame. The armory was registered under the holding name Colin of Shattered Crystal.
John O’Gara. Household name for Free Company of the Brotherhood of the Sword and badge. (Fieldless) Six swords, points to center Or.
The name has two problems. We do not, under most circumstances, use more than one designator. This has two, Brotherhood and (Free) Company. That alone would be grounds for return. We could not drop one of the designators and register it in that form, as it would then be in conflict with The Order of the Sword, The Brethren of the Sword, Knights of the Sword, and Circle of Swords.
The armory is being returned for breaking our rules on fieldless style. Fieldless armory cannot have charges that are not touching. The swords in this submission are not conjoined or touching, but rather each one is floating off in space by itself.
Nina Mirovna Korsakova. Badge for House Vulpecula. Per pale vert and gules, a compass star argent, a bordure argent.
This is being returned for lack of paperwork for the badge. If paperwork had been submitted, we would have to return this for conflict with Brandon d’Arindel Per bend azure and sable, a compass-star of sixteen points elongated to base within a bordure argent., with one CD for the field, but nothing for the differences between the two mullets.
Adelaide Ehrhardt. Device. Per chevron inverted nebuly argent and sable, a demi-pegasus volant affronty, wings displayed sable and three double roses argent and sable.
The posture volant affronty has been ruled unsuitable for use in heraldry on at least two occasions (Sept. 1992 LOAR, p.48; Oct. 1992 LOAR p.23) on the grounds that it is "inherently unidentifiable". While in those case the returns involved birds, we feel that the case is just as strong for monsters.
Anastasia Elizabeth Courteney. Device. Purpure, a winged sea-horse argent.
This conflicts Jocelyn Douglas of Fairfax Purpure, a winged sea unicorn erect, wings addorsed argent, within a bordure Or., and Andrew MacBain the Purple Purpure, a winged sea-unicorn between in fess two rapiers argent., with just one CD in each case for removing the secondary group. While a horse is a CD from a unicorn, the addition of wings and fish tail to each creates an overwhelming similarity with which the remaining details of the horn and beard cannot compete.
Bernadou du Lac. Name.
This is being returned for lack of documentation. Dauzat cites Bernadou as a modern French surname only, and Morlet also cites it as a last name. Barring documentation, Bernadou is not registerable as a given name. While the given name Bernard is certainly registerable, we felt that was too big of a change to make. Barring conflict, we see no reason why Bernard du Lac, would not be registerable. See the cover letter for further discussion of issues raised by this submission.
Gavin Blackthorn. Name.
This name conflicts with Gawain Blackthorne. As the documentation notes, the two given names are merely variant forms and they do not differ significantly enough in sound to carry them clear. The armory was registered under the holding name Gavin of Windkeep.
Gwendolen McIver. Device. Per bend sinister azure and argent, in chief three pallets Or and in base a thistle slipped and leaved proper.
While blazoned as being a divided field with three pallets issuant from the line of division, this could as easily be blazoned as Per bend sinister paly azure and Or and argent, in base a thistle slipped and leaved proper. It was not unusual for barry or paly fields in period to be drawn with an odd number of traits (which we'd blazon as bars or palets); see, for example, the arms of Mouton (Multon, Moleton) found both as Barry argent and gules. and Argent, three bars gules. (Dictionary of British Arms, Volume 1, pp 59, 88; Foster, p.145) and the arms of von Rosenberg, whose Per fess field has in base either three bends or bendy depending upon the artist's whim (Siebmacher, p. 8; Neubecker and Rentzmann, p. 290). Even when the distinction is worth blazoning, it's worth no difference. Therefore, this conflicts with Scotland (Fieldless) A thistle proper. There is one CD for the field, but nothing for position versus a fieldless badge.
Killian MacKenzie. Device. Argent, on a bend sinister between a sprig of forget-me-nots slipped and leaved and a wolf couchant azure, a feather argent.
This conflicts with a badge for the Barony of Atenveldt Argent on a bend sinister between two clarions azure, a quill pen argent. There is only one CD for the difference of type of secondaries.
Klaus von Nachtwald. Name change from Hans Hager Eyecrown.
No real documentation was presented and none could be found for Nachtwald as a period byname. Barring such documentation we are forced to return this name.
Kolfinna Fraser. Device. Per bend vert and sable, an equal-armed Celtic cross formy argent.
This conflicts with Gormflait Suiban ni Cuallachta Gyronny Or and azure, a Celtic cross argent, fimbriated sable. There is a CD for the field, but nothing for the fimbriation or the details of the crosses.
Regan Davis. Household name for Blue Company.
This conflicts with the registered household name of Fionnbhárr Starfyr of the Isles: The Blue Band. Band and Company are the designators in each case, and thus transparent, leaving Blue conflicting with Blue.
Sebastian Jameson of Stokesay. Device. Azure chapé ployé counter-ermine, a cross of four arrowheads points to center argent.
This is being returned for breaking tincture. While chapé ployé is a field division, it must obey the rule of tincture. Furthermore, as drawn, this is not a cross of arrowheads, a cross formy, or a cross patonce.
Steitan Bogenschütz. Device. Gules, three pheons inverted argent, on a chief indented Or a catamount passant sable.
This is being returned for a redraw. As drawn it is not clearly per fess, nor field, a chief, but something halfway between that blurs the line between the two.
Timothy O'Brien. Device. Vert, a bend sinister between a cross crosslet fitchy and a quill pen bendwise sinister tip to base argent.
This conflicts with Wilhelm der Krieger Vert, a bend sinister between two foxes heads erased argent., with just one CD for the type of the secondaries.
Turgeis av Markland. Device. Per fess bendy sinister gules and Or and chevronny Or and gules per pale counterchanged.
This is being returned for violating RfS.VIII.4.d. - Modern Style. "Charges may not be used to create abstract or op-art designs".
Atalaya la Sanodora. Badge transfer to Cedric Steinhauser. Sable, a bear salient to sinister Or.
While there was a letter in the packet signed by Atalaya la Sanodora transferring the badge to Cedric Steinhauser, there was nothing showing acceptance by of the badge by Cedric. Barring such documentation, we are forced to return the transfer.
Cedric Steinhauser. Badge transfer from Atalaya la Sanodora. Sable, a bear salient to sinister Or.
While there was a letter in the packet signed by Atalaya la Sanodora transferring the badge to Cedric Steinhauser, there was nothing showing acceptance by of the badge by Cedric. Barring such documentation, we are forced to return the transfer.
Haakon Bjornsson. Badge. (Fieldless) A bear rampant argent maintaining a sword proper and a trefoil inverted vert distilling a goutte d’sang.
This conflicts with Lachlan Bradoc Per pale gules and vert, a bear rampant guardant argent., and Alyson of Islay Per bend Or and vert, a koala rampant guardant maintaining a branch of eucalyptus proper. There is a CD for the field, but nothing for head position or the maintained charges.
Lleulyth o’r Cymry verch Llewfron mab Dafydd. Name.
This is being returned for multiple problems with the name. While the submitter says that Welsh adopted names from the bible, and that Lleulyth is Welsh version of Lilith. However Lilith is not a Biblical name -- she appears in non-canonical Jewish folklore, but not the version of the texts generally available in Europe during the medieval period. Nor does she fall in the class of figures whose names were borrowed for use. It is possible that somewhere in a period Welsh text, there is a reference to Lilith, however it does not occur in any of the texts cited by the submitter. No one in the college has any documentation for Lleulyth as a period Welsh name (whether connected with Lilith or not), nor can it be justified on the basis of existing compound name elements. And, the submitter did not provide any documentation for it, outside of her assertion.
One can find the byname Cymro (Welshman) in period Welsh records, e.g. Morgan & Morgan p.77 Dauid Kymro (1326). However the ethnic bynames I have seen in period Welsh records are either of this form (i.e., the word for a person of that nationality, e.g. Cymro, Gwyddel(es), Sais) or simply use the name of the place (e.g. Powys). No one in the College was able to provide any documentation for a personal name using a construction along the lines of this submission, and neither did the submitter.
Finally, there was no direct reference to Llewfron given in the documentation. It appears to be a compound of llew (lion) and bron (breast), and in fact the GPC (the Welsh OED) notes it as a poetic compound, appearing in a 16-17th c. verse, with a meaning similar to "lion-hearted". However, once again, no documentation was provided for its usage, and no one in the college could provide any for it as a personal or byname.
While not grounds for return, please inform the submitter that mab is the common noun from which the patronymic particle ap derives, it would not have appeared in this spelling in a name later than perhaps the 10th century or so, which is inconsistent with the general format of the name.
Barring documentation for the name elements and construction, we are forced to return this name. If the submitter is interested in a Welsh name, we recommend that she contact Harpy Herald, c/o Laurel. The armory was registered under the holding name Johanna of Gleann Dubh.
Marged Bronwen Montague. Device. Azure, a sprig of heather argent.
This conflicts with Atenveldt, Kingdom of (badge for the College of Bards) Azure, a leaved branch palewise argent.
Marie Genevieve of Aquitaine. Device. Per pall inverted azure, argent and sable, two ewes rampant respectant playing recorders counterchanged argent and sable, and in base a mullet of six points Or.
This is being returned for a redraw/recolor. While blazoned as sable, it is a medium gray, not black. This blurs the line between argent and sable. If it was resubmitted with true heraldic colors, this problem would be taken care of.
Gra Valr Grittisson. Device. Per pale vert and gules, a hammer inverted Or.
This conflicts with Elgar of Stonehaven Sable chaussé ployé lozengy argent and gules, a Thor's hammer Or., registered 11/97. There is one CD for the field but nothing for two hammers in identical positions.
