Oengus Ó Flannagáin. Name and device. Argent, a sword gules fretted with a Bowen cross sable.
Submitted as Oengus Cineal Aonghusa Cineal Aonghusa is the name of a clan (named after someone named Aonghus). A number of different words roughly equivalent to "clan" were used in Medieval Irish. The available evidence indicates that the way membership in such a clan (no matter what "clan" word was used for the group) was indicated in a personal name was by the use of ó (or older ua) plus the clan eponym in the genitive (i.e., ó Aonghusa) not by using a construction equivalent to "of Clan X". Therefore we have changed this to an alternative form which the submitter allows.

Gerhard Helmbrecht von Offenbach. Name and device. Gyronny azure and argent, four compass stars argent.
Jeanne Alwyn. Device. Per bend gules and sable, a bend bevilled between two estoiles argent.
Luciana Maria Novella Di Carlo. Device. Checky Or and gules, on a bend gules three ivy leaves Or.
The question was raised in commentary about the bend sharing one of the tinctures of the checky field. Some period similar arms are those of Bekering, Checky argent and azure a bend argent (Dictionary of British Armorials), Robert Chamberlain: Paly of six argent and gules on a chief of the last three escutcheons of the first (Anglo-Norman Armory II), von Studnitz: Argent a bend lozengy argent and gules (Siebmacher f.57), von Traupitz: Checky sable and argent on a chief sable two mullets of six points argent (Siebmacher f.151), and von Caldis: Bendy sable and Or a chief Or charged with a demi-lion naissant sable (Gelre f.33v.) This shows a general use of multiply divided fields with stripe ordinaries throughout Europe and over the whole SCA heraldic period (Anglo-Norman being early, Siebmacher being late, Gelre being in the middle.)
Margaret MacIain of Lochwood. Device. Gyronny purpure and Or, each Or gyron charged with a daisy azure.

Found on the LoI as Snorri Snarfari Bjarnarson, it was originally submitted as Snorri Snarfari Bjornsson, and changed to the form found on the LoI. Since documentation has been presented for the submitter's original form, we are restoring it.

Drusilla of the Drunken Archers. Name and device. Argent fretty azure, a wooden cup bendwise proper.
The submitter's legal sibling, Simon de la Palma de Mallorca had the household name Drunken Archers registered to him 8/89. Therefore, the usage is grandfathered to her.

Walraven van Nijmegen. Badge. (Fieldless) A créquier gules.
Zubaydah bint Ghazi al-Qasim. Name and device. Or, on a fess between two sexfoils azure, a chalice Or.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
AEthelmearc, Kingdom of. Acceptance of transfer of badge from Connor M'Eleam. (Fieldless) A millrind argent.
This is being returned for violating the procedures set forth in the Administrative Handbook. The Administrative Handbook, IV.C.6, states: Any submission involving the transfer of a registered item from one individual or branch to another must include both a statement from the owner authorizing the transfer and a statement from the recipient accepting the transferred material. There was no transfer on the LoI, there was no letter of acceptance from AEthelmearc, and no letter of transfer from Connor.
Clement of Morocco. Device. Sable, a demi-sun issuant from chief Or charged with a rose proper.
This was an appeal of a kingdom return for conflict with Stafngrimr of Agaricus Sable, on a demi-sun issuant from base Or, a phoenix issuant from base gules. The submitter feels that in addition to getting a CD for changing the position from base to chief, he should get a CD for change of type of the tertiary. However, a demi-sun is too complex for voiding and so change of type of tertiary is not sufficient to get a CD. In addition, this is not a demi-sun, though we would probably not give any difference for it versus a demi-sun so the conflict still stands.
Since it is not a demi-sun, but appears to be a chief embowed to base and indented, this presents another fatal flaw. Precedent [December 1992 LOAR, p.20] bans the use of two different complex lines on the same charge with 'very rare exceptions'. In addition, if considered as a chief instead of a demi-sun, this conflicts with Amanda Morgan Sable, on a chief indented Or, in canton a decrescent sable. There is a CD for the tertiaries, but nothing between the two peripheral charges.
Damyana Luisa Jacinta Abril. Device. Vert, a cow rampant argent pied sable.
This was an appeal of a kingdom return for conflict with Willow de Wisp Vert, a bull passant argent, pied gules, armed and unguled sable, horns tipped argent. The submitter feels that we should give a CD for change of tincture of half the charge, by the pied on the cow.
However, pied is not a heraldic charge division nor is it a recognized field treatment. It is certainly not reproducible in any consistent way (as required by RFS VII.7.b for armorial elements.) While we may allow it as an artistic detail, we do not give any difference for it. This is a conflict with Willow de Wisp Vert, a bull passant argent, pied gules, armed and unguled sable, horns tipped argent, as cited in the LOI.
Caron Caleb. Device. Per pall inverted gules, azure and Or, two increscents Or and another azure.
This is being returned for a redraw. As draw it is not clearly Per pall inverted gules, azure and Or.... or Per pale gules and azure, two increscent and on a point pointed..., but rather something halfway inbetween. Since one of the purposes of heraldry is identification, it must be drawn clearly one way or the other.
Ard Ruadh, Shire of. Device. Sable lozengy, on a pile argent a sun gules overall a laurel wreath Or.
While the picture is as above, the blazon on the LoI which matched the blazon on the petition was Argent semy of fusils sable, on a pile sable a sun Or, overall a laurel wreath gules. Since the petition does not match the submitted armory, it must be returned.
Artemisia, Kingdom of. Title for Vox Grypis Herald.
This is being returned for non period style. In a similar case, Master Da'ud as Laurel said:
[returning Vox Draconis Pursuivant] The previous version, Dragon's Voice Pursuivant, was returned 3/95 for failure to emulate period models as required by RfS III.2.b.iii; translation into Latin doesn't bring it any closer. It was suggested that it might derive from a motto Vox draconis sum `I am the voice of the dragon', but the period examples noted all comprise the entire motto, and no evidence was presented that Vox draconis sum is a reasonable imitation of a period motto. (Caid, Kingdom of, 10/95 p. 18)
Barring documentation that this follows period exemplar of heraldic titles, it must be returned.
Artemisia, Kingdom of. Title for Wormwood Pursuivant.
This is being returned for non-period style. Period heraldic titles were formed from surnames, place-names, names of heraldic charges orders of chivalry and mottos. Barring evidence that Wormwood is one of the above it must be returned.
Gerard le Bon. Device. Per fess wavy purpure and Or, in chief three roundels, one and two, in base a dolphin counterchanged.
This is being returned for a redraw. While blazoned on the LoI as Per fess wavy... the emblazon is halfway between that and Or, a dolphin naiant and on a chief... . Since one of the purposes of heraldry is identification, it must be drawn clearly one way or the other. Note: while the name on the LoI was Gerard le Bon d'Orleans, the registered form of the name is Gerard le Bon.
Savina des Gitanes. Device. Argent, two dogs combattant sable and an eagle displayed azure.
This conflicts with Michael von Rosenau Argent, an owl displayed azure, maintaining a rose fesswise gules, slipped and leaved vert. There is no difference between an owl displayed and an eagle displayed, leaving only one CD for adding the dogs.
Sentinels' Keep, Barony of. Order name for Order of the Mountain Pearl.
This is being returned for non-period style. Period order names are often the names of saints; others are similar to sign names (see RfS III.2.a.iii). Some examples are: the Order of Saint Michael, the Order of Saint Maurice and Saint Lazarus, the Brethren of the Sword, the Order of the Garter, La Toison d'Or (the Order of the Golden Fleece), the Order of the Golden Rose, the Order of the Star, the Order of the Swan, La Orden de la Jara (the Knights of the Tankard), the Order of Lilies. To the best of our knowledge there is no such as a mountain pearl, and pearls are certainly not found in mountains. Therefore, barring documentation, we are forced to return this.
Sentinels' Keep, Barony of. Order name for Order of Vigilance.
This is being returned for non-period style. Period order names are often the names of saints; others are similar to sign names (see RfS III.2.a.iii). Some examples are: the Order of Saint Michael, the Order of Saint Maurice and Saint Lazarus, the Brethren of the Sword, the Order of the Garter, La Toison d'Or (the Order of the Golden Fleece), the Order of the Golden Rose, the Order of the Star, the Order of the Swan, La Orden de la Jara (the Knights of the Tankard), the Order of Lilies. Order of Vigilance does not fit any of the exemplars we know of for period order names. Therefore, barring documentation we are forced to return this.
William Wilde. Badge. (Fieldless) An owl's head erased affronty argent.
This conflicts with Serena Lucia of the Peacemakers Gyronny vert and or, a snowy owl's head erased affronty proper (Nyctea scandiaca). and Merric of Stormgate (Fieldless) an owl's head cabossed argent, maintaining in its beak a candle fesswise azure, lit at both ends proper. In both cases there is a CD for fieldless, but nothing for the difference between a snowy owl's head proper and argent, or for the sustained candle.
Zuzanne od Suwalki. Name.
No forms were received for this submission so it must be returned for lack of paperwork. Please inform the submitter that the Polish word od is only one of the words for "of." Far more common with town names is the Polish word z. However, the rules on whether to use z or od depend on the nature of the word. Furthermore, after od or z, the word must be put into the genitive case. Far more common are the adjectival forms (ending in -ski/-ska [masc/fem])
One grammatically correct form of the name would be "z Sulwakl." However, this sounds odd and would probably be better, as Hoffman (79) notes, as Suwalski (fem Suwalska). Therefore, the best form would be Zuzanne Suwalska.
Aidan MacEgan. Device. Argent semy of millrinds fesswise sable, an axe azure and a dragon's tongue gules in saltire.
This is being returned for the use of a dragon's tongue, which is not an acceptable charge. In the return of Aaron Clearwater, August, 1992. Bruce, as Laurel said:
"The one registration of a `dragon's tongue' in the SCA, back in 1973, does not make it an identifiable charge. Nor does it seem in keeping with period armory: tongues were not used as charges, so far as I know."
Barring evidence that this charge was used in period it must be returned.
Edward Drake von Nordstrom. Household Name for Flammenhaus and badge. (Fieldless) A castle argent, enflamed Or.
The name is being returned for conflict with the Order of the Flames of Starkhafn. The group designator does not count for difference, nor does haus and Order. Therefore the only difference between them that counts is the difference between Flammen and Flames. There is a similar problem between the household name and Flame Pursuivant of Caid and the Barony of the Flame. Interestingly enough, this is a period German formation as according to Bahlow's Deutsches Namen-Lexicon in 1500, there was a haus name of zur Flamme, which translates as at (the sign of) the flame. Brechenmacher's Etymologisches Wörterbuch der Deutschen Familiennamen has, dated to 1469, Flammenhof, which would be equivalent to court of the flame.
The armory conflicts with Anne of the White Tower Sable, a tower argent, Stanford of Sheffield Per fess and per pale dovetailed argent and azure, in sinister chief a tower argent, and Dugall Ailean mac-'ic Lathurna Paly Or and azure, in dexter chief a tower argent. Each gets one CD for the field, but nothing for castle vs. tower or for position vs. a fieldless badge.
Erich Wanderer. Name.
This conflicts with the already registered Eric the Wanderer. Neither the very small difference in the given names nor the addition of an article are enough to generate difference.
The armory was registered under the holding name Erich of Ered Sul.
Gregoire le Gris. Device. Or, an eel embowed counterembowed azure.
This conflicts with Rosemounde of Mercia Or, a two-headed serpent erect wavy gules. There is a CD for the tincture of the primary, but nothing for position and nothing for type. Please inform the submitter that if they resubmit this charge, that they need to draw the eel in a standard heraldic posture.
Johannes von Helmstedt. Device. Azure, a winged lion statant erect contourny, maintaining in its forepaws an open scroll palewise, a bordure Or.
This conflicts with Cinhil MacAran Per fess rayonny azure and gules, a winged lion rampant to sinister within a bordure Or. There is just one CD for the field.
Roberto Raimondo de la Montana de Trueno. Name.
"De la Montana de Trueno" is intended to translate the name of his local branch (Mons Tonitrus) into the language of the name (Spanish). While this is a praiseworthy intent, only the actual registered form of an SCA branch name is automatically registerable as part of a personal name. If the name is translated into some other language, then it must be a plausible place-name in that language. Unfortunately, no one has been able to demonstrate that mountains were named after atmospheric phenomena, such as thunder, in Spanish in period. Given the lack of documentation standards in earlier years - particularly for SCA branch names - there is no reason to assume that a registered branch name is documentable even in the language it is registered in. In addition, a place name may be a reasonable construction in one language and culture but not necessarily in another. So even if a registered branch name is, in itself, a well-constructed period place name, translating it into another language may make it a historic impossibility. For example, the existence of the registered SCA branch name "Mists" should not be taken as licensing the use of words meaning "Mists" as locative bynames in any and all period languages. Therefore barring evidence for "Mountain of Thunder" as a plausible period place name in Spanish, this name must be returned. The armory was registered under the holding name Roberto Raimondo of Mons Tonitrus.
Rülich Sturmveder. Device. Quarterly sable and gules, a Latin cross barby throughout surmounted and conjoined to a saltire couped barby argent.
While blazoned as above, this is effectively an escarbuncle ending in arrowheads. That is a well known sign of Chaos from the Moorcock universe which is banned by precedent.
[Escarbuncles ending in arrowheads] There was a very strong feeling among commentors from coast to coast and points in between that the use of the sign of Chaos from the Moorcock universe in Society armoury was quite inappropriate, not only because of its meaning but also because of its modern associations and design. (LoAR 30 Sep 89, p. 11)
Additionally, no difference is given between this and a standard escarbuncle, so this conflicts with Barony of Lonely Tower Quarterly sable and gules, an escarbuncle argent within a bordure argent, masoned sable, and Cerelia de Lacy of Sherborne Purpure, an escarbuncle argent, with the first getting only one CD for the bordure and the second only one CD for the field.
Sabrina Morna. Badge. Or, a wingless wyvern statant, tail ending in a cinquefoil purpure, charged upon the tail with a cinquefoil Or.
This is being returned for a redraw.
Note: this is clear of Lindorm Eriksson, Or, a wingless wyvern statant gules., since he has registered a blanket permission to conflict which gives an automatic CD. However, no one was able to come up with a blazon which would guarantee accurate reproduction of the arrangement of the tail, and the cinquefoil is not a suitable charge for the voiding/fimbriation used in the submitted depiction.
Ciarán mac Gabhann. Device. Sable, a cross crosslet fitchy argent.
This conflicts with Steffan yr Ysgolhaig Sable, a cross crosslet fitchy azure, fimbriated argent, with just one CD for the tincture of the cross, and with the badge for Sigenoth the Blissful Per pale sable and vert, a Latin cross bottony argent, and the badge for Sigenoth's household Maison de la Croix Blanche, Quarterly sable and vert, a cross bottony argent, both registered January, 1998. By long standing precedent, there is not difference between a cross botonny and a cross crosslet, leaving but one CD in each case for the difference in the field.
Eadan nic Dhomhnaill. Device. Per fess indented argent and azure, three thistles proper and a bear statant argent.
This is technically in conflict with Malcolm of Strathaven Argent, five thistles three and two, slipped and leaved vert. There is one CD for the field. However, there is nothing for changing the type of one charge in a group of four or more, nor is there a CD for number between four and five charges in a group. Nor is there anything for tincture between thistles proper, with their red flowers, and ones that are all vert.
Freyia av Bergen. Name and device. Per fess vert and azure, a cauldron and a domestic cat in its curiosity within a bordure indented argent.
According to the LoI "[Lind's Norsk-Islandsk Personnamen col.283] has a reasonable entry for Freyia." This is not correct. While it is true that Freyia is found in Lind, the references are all to the Goddess, and not to a human being. Barring documentation that the given name was used by humans in our period as a given name, this name must be returned.
The armory is being returned for non-period style. It is unbalanced with the primary cauldron and the secondary cat. Furthermore, it is not even drawn as was the one registration of a cat in its curiousity, August 1978. Since "a cat in its curiousity" is not period style it will no longer be registered after the October 1998 Laurel meeting.
Marco Antonio Raimondi. Device. Vert, a building argent, issuant from chief a demi-sun Or.
This is being for violating RfS.VII.3, which states that artifacts that were known in the period and domain of the Society may be registered in armory, provided they are depicted in their period form. This building appears to be post eighteenth century, not pre-seventeenth century. Barring evidence that this is a period depiction, it must be returned.
Rafn Mýra. Name.
While Mýra is found in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name, it is found being used as a prefix. When it is not a prefix, it changes spelling to Mryi. However, since the submitter forbade changes, we are forced to return this name.
The armory was registered under the holding name Cindy of Ponte Alto.
Renata von Hentzau. Device. Azure, a fox courant reguardant argent, in chief three mullets Or.
This is being returned for redraw. As drawn it is not clearly courant or statant but something halfway between the two.
Robert Drake. Device. Per bend sinister vert and Or, a duck volant sable.
This conflicts with Miscell of Lyonesse Per saltire argent and vert, a duck volant sable, with but one CD for the difference in the field.
Róisín of Rowanwood. Badge. (Fieldless) Three penguins affronty conjoined in pall inverted sable, bellied and faced argent.
This is being returned for violating RFS VIII.4.d (Modern Style): 'Charges may not ... be patterned after comic book art, fantasy art, ... etc.'. Not only did the college feel that this was modern style, but it is also the exact logo used by San Tio Products which produces "Hello Kitty".
Silence de Chambourg. Name.
Withdrawn by the submitter.
Thomas de Grey. Device. Per chevron sable and Or, two towers and a natural seahorse counterchanged.
This conflicts with Tuman Elnikov Per chevron throughout sable and Or, two towers Or and a demon genuant guardant vert maintaining a sword gules. The precedent allowing difference for changes to the single charge in base also limits such difference to one CD, so the type and tincture are not counted separately in this case.
Rowan Killian. Device. Azure, on a bend between a bear and a griffin combattant Or, each maintaining a sword gules, three crescents palewise azure.
This is technically in conflict with Stewart the Stalwart Azure, on a bend cotised Or three keys palewise, wards in chief, azure. While cotises and other charges on the field would be considered separate charge groups on the same armory, they are still secondary charges and can be compared to other secondary charges. Precedent holds that a peripheral charge gets only one CD for type vs. a non-peripheral secondary charge [June 1997 LOAR, pp.10-11]; therefore there is only a single CD for the type of the secondary charges. Since the secondary charges on the submitted armory are of two different types, it does not qualify for RFS X.4.j.ii; under X.4.j.i there is no CD for changing the type only of the tertiary charges. Note if the secondaries were identical, two bears or two griffins, this conflict would be cleared.
Caínnear an Ruad. Name and device. Gules, on a pale Or between in chief two flames proper, a dragonís head couped gules, a bordure sable.
The name is being returned for incorrect construction. Gaelic doesn't use an in names. The correct construction should be Caínnear Ruadh or Caínnear Ruad. Since the submitter does not accept changes, the name must be returned.
The armory is being returned for breaking the rule of contrast, (color on color) with a black bordure on a red field.
Giovannino di Vidor. Device. Argent, three piles inverted conjoined in point purpure, on the center pile a double bitted axe inverted argent.
No forms were received, so this is being returned for lack of paperwork. However, when resubmitting, please instruct the submitter on how to properly drawn piles inverted and conjoined. Based on how the miniature was drawn we would have to reblazon it as Gyronny of seven from center chief argent and purpure, a double-bitted axe inverted argent. Unfortunately, such a blazon would not be period style.
Therefore, we would have had to returned it for non-period style. Furthermore, that conflicts with Anne Gray Per chevron inverted azure and argent, in chief a double-bitted axe inverted argent, with one CD for the difference in the fields.
Blackmoor Keep, Shire of. Badge. Per pale sable and argent, a tower, a bordure embattled counterchanged.
This conflicts with Michel d'Avignon Per pale sable and argent, a two-towered castle counterchanged. There is one CD for the bordure, but nothing for castle vs. tower.
Brigid ingen Loingsigh. Device. Argent, a melusine proper crined vert between three mullets azure.
This is being returned for breaking the rule of contrast. A melusine proper cannot be placed on argent as human flesh was sometimes depicted as argent in period.
Savaric de Pardieu. Device. Quarterly argent and sable, a Maltese cross between four others, all counterchanged.
This is being returned for using two difference sizes of the same charge on the field.
Elisheva bat Simon Halevi. Household name for House Thunder.
This conflicts with Thunder Pursuivant, Kingdom of Meridies. RfS.V.2.b.i, Change of Elements, states that '...names do not conflict if each of them contains a descriptive element significantly different from every descriptive element of the other. .......House, Herald and College of, being designators, are not descriptive elements.'
Regan Davis. Badge for Blue Company. Azure, a bend sinister Or between two caltrops argent.
This conflicts with Dominique Salluste de Rovere Azure, a bend sinister Or between a tree eradicated and a Latin cross argent. There is just one CD for the type of the secondaries.
Elizabeth Stuart. Name.
Conflicts with Elizabeth Stuart the daughter of James Stuart, King of England (James I) and King of Scotland (James VI), through whom the House of Hanover claimed the English throne. She was Princess of England, Electress Palatine of Hanover, and Queen of Bohemia. She has her own entry in the Encyclopedia Britannica and therefore is important enough to protect.
Stagridge, Shire of. Device. Or, a stagís head erased sable attired gules within a laurel wreath sable.
No petition was received for this group device, so it must be returned.
Stefán askmaðr. Name.
No forms were received, so this must be returned.
Walraven van Nijmegen. Device change. Bendy Or and gules.
While blazoned on the LoI as Or, it was actually colored orange. Since orange is not an heraldic tincture this must be returned.
