Yvon-Maurice Charon. Household name for The House of the Three Furies.
Dragon has provided documentation for Inns named after mythological characters.
al-Azar Lucero. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Azir Lucero, every other source which had the name, had al-Azar, and not Azir, and the submitter's documentation had both. Therefore, we have changed it to the more likely form.
Arn Hold, Barony of. Order name for Order of the Amethyst Chalice.
Arrianna da Donnici. Name.
Submitted as Arrianna li Donnici, Donnici is a place. Therefore, in Italian it takes da not li. We have made the appropriate correction.
Astridr in kyrra. Name.
Submitted as Astridr inn kyrri, the given name is feminine and the byname is in the masculine form. Since the byname must agree with the given name in gender we have corrected it.

Submitted as Richenda de St. Clair, St. is a scribal abbreviation. We have spelled it out.
Sergei Stepanovich Bezruk'ev. Name.
Submitted as Sergie Stepanovich Buzruk'ov, the LoI typoed Sergei. We have corrected this. However, the byname was incorrectly formed. To form a byname from the adjective bezrukii, the spelling needs to be modified slightly to Bezruk'ev. We have done so.
Stephan MacTir. Device. Vert, two chevronels braced, a bordure argent.
Sven Karlsson. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Torin Ironbrow. Name and device. Per bend argent and azure, three harps reversed and a dragon segreant counterchanged.
Uluric Gilcrist. Name.
Vanya Shakhmatnikov. Name and device. Checky sable and argent, a rose and in base three gouttes, a bordure embattled gules.
Submitted as Vanya Shakhmatistov, Shakhmatistov was glossed to mean the chessplayer. According to Escutcheon the submitted form is probably out of period. More importantly he was able to provide us with a dated form, used as a name, from his dictionary. We have made the necessary change.

His former device Per fess azure and gules, a stagÆs head affronty erased within a bordure argent., is hereby released.

His former name Louis Loisel is hereby released.
Heiðrekr Skúlason. Name and device. Azure, on a pale between a fish haurient and a fish urinant Or, three frets conjoined vert.

Idhunn Thorlaksdottir. Name and device. Azure, a hare's head couped Or, collared sable and in chief a heart Or, a bordure compony Or and gules.
Submitted as Idhunna Thorlaksdottir, no documentation was found for the form Idhunna and none could be found. We have changed it to the closest documentable form. According to the submitter's forms she has documented Idunna in the past, but that documentation was not provided to us. If the documentation is sent to us and it is acceptable, we will change her name to Idhunna.
István Nyiregyhazi. Name.
Submitted as István Nyíregyhazi, while the LoI stated that the byname could be found in Kalman's The World of Hungarian Names, it could not be found in that spelling. We have substituted the closest documentable form, which is the same as the submitted form, but without an accent over the i.
The question was raised as to which is the appropriate form for Hungarian names, with the given name first or the byname first. Hungarian names may be registered with either the given name or byname as the first element, except when the byname is an unmarked patronym or metronym. In that case, the byname should follow the given name; this is consistent with Hungarian practice through the mid 16th century, and should help to avoid future confusion. Our thanks to Lord Walraven van Nijmegen for providing this information for us.
Ivan Ivanov syn Dmitriev. Name and device. Per bend sinister azure and argent, a bend sinister counter-ermine between a scorpion statant and a card-pique counterchanged.
Submitted as Ivan Ivanov Syn Dmitriev, we have corrected the capital S in Syn to match the documented form.

Jadwiga Zajaczkowa. Name
Jean de Chauliac. Device. Sable, on a plate a unicorn's head couped purpure, and on a chief argent, a decrescent purpure.
Jolie de Valiere. Name and device. Or, a fox courant vert within an orle of fleurs-de-lys sable.
Justinian the Sluggard. Device. Checky gules and argent, a slug guardant contourny sable.
This is a resubmission, having been returned in the past for unidentifiability and lack of documentation for the slug. The problem with the unidentifiability has been solved with the redraw. Documentation has been presented for slugs in period. Furthermore, snails (truly noble beasts) are found in period armory (and the armory of the current Laurel Queen of Arms). Therefore, a slug is at worst one step away from period practice. As with the snail, the slug has no limbs, so one can hardly blazon it as "statant", "passant", or whatever.
Kat'ryna Neblaga Volchkova. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Katarina la Juste. Name.
Katherine Mountclare. Name and device. Or, a fleur-de-lys vert, a chief engrailed sable.

Megan of Westfield. Name.
Submitted as Tadgán of Westfield, the LoI states that the submitter preferred the name Megan but had no documentation. Since documentation has been provided from William Salesbury's A Dictionary of English and Welsh Names, we have changed it to the submitter's preferred form.
Michael Fitzwarren. Name and device. Gules, three greyhounds courant Or.
Morgan ap Rhys ap Bran. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Muriel de Chimay. Name (see RETURNS for badge).
Ragnarr Járnhauss Thorgrimsson. Name.
Submitted as Járnhuss Ragnarr Thorgrimsson, while Járnhuss is a nickname, it is not a prefix nickname, but rather goes after the given name. Therefore, we have moved it to the proper place in the name. It was also misspelt on the LoI, the correct spelling is Járnhauss. We have also corrected this.
Reyne Wurm. Name and device. Or, a crow close contourny between three gouttes, on a chief sable a sword fesswise Or.
Rory MacLellan. Name and device. Per chevron argent and gules, three shamrocks and a tower counterchanged.

Edmund Cavendish. Device. Per bend azure and gules, a cross formy Or.
Elspeth Necaedan. Device. Or, a Celtic cross gules, on a bordure azure four sprigs of three ivy leaves Or.
Katerina Dmitrieva. Name.
Submitted as Katerina Dmitrievna, Dmitrievna is an out of period form. We have substituted the closest period form.
Ludwig Grün. Name and device. Or, a dragon segreant gules, a bordure embattled sable.
Submitted as Ludwig der Grün, based on the submitted documentation the der does not belong in the name. Therefore, we have removed it.
Meleri verch Adam. Name.
Padruig Dubhchlogad. Badge. (Fieldless) On a tower Or a candle gules.
Robert Cornelius MacGregor. Name and device. Gules, a cross of Jerusalem, on a chief embattled argent three crosses of Jerusalem gules.
Stephen of Forth Castle. Name (see RETURNS for device).
William Cormac Britt. Name.
Submitted as William Cormac O'Britt, no documentation was presented and none could be found for adding O' to Britt. Therefore we have dropped it.

Clare de Say. Name and device. Per chevron throughout ployé azure and argent, two fleurs-de-lys Or and a mullet of six points azure.
Conchobar mac Eoin. Name.
Submitted as Conchobhar mac Eoin, the LoI misspelled Concobar. We have corrected this.
Ian Lindsay MacRae. Name.
Ileana Welgy. Name.
Submitted as Völgységi Ilona, the client wanted the appropriate Hungarian for Ileana of the Valley. Kázmér's Régi Magyar Családnevek Szótára: XIV-XVII Század", Magyar Nyelvtudományi Társaság gives Völgyi as the modern form for of the valley, but this spelling does not appear before 1720. The best period form appears to be Welgy, dated to 1448 and 1551.While Ileana is not a Hungarian name, it can be found in De Felice's book on Italian given name. Venice controlled extensive territory on the east coast of the Adriatic in late period, sharing a border with Hungary. Since Kázmér includes a number of names apparently derived from Italian, an Italian/Hungarian name is acceptable under our rules. However, it must follow the standard practice of having the given name first.
John Wolf. Device. Azure, a wolf rampant maintaining a mullet, on a chief argent, three mullets azure.
Kamiya Gentarou Toshimoto. Name change from holding name Lucas of Hinterland.
Madog of Glastonbury. Device. Per chevron embattled argent and gules, three roundels one and two and a pick-axe counterchanged.
Mary of Lyonshall. Device. Or, a mermaid, on a chief gules three catamount's heads cabossed Or.
Óengus mac Conchobhair. Name.
Submitted as Óenghus mac Conchobhair, the documented form of the given name is Óengus. We have corrected this.
Outlands, Kingdom of the. Order name for Order of the Flower.
This is to be associated with their already registered badge (Fieldless) Two stags combatant sable maintaining between them a fleur-de-lys gules.
Pierre Gaston de Vallier. Badge. Azure, a lion's head erased breathing flames, a bordure embattled Or.
Quintin MacConnor. Name.

Vladimir Igorevich. Badge. (Fieldless) A bear rampant gules sustaining an axe sable.
Anastasia Germain. Device. Per fess gules and Or, a phoenix displayed and a sailless drakkar contourny oars in action counterchanged.
Angus MacLachlan. Name and device. Sable, a wolf rampant, on a chief dovetailed argent two bagpipes sable.
Brand Glendower. Name and device. Quarterly purpure and sable, a dragon passant contourny and in sinister chief a mullet argent.
Submitted as Brand ap Glynd_r, ap is not used with a placename so we have removed it. Furthermore, we have changed the spelling of the placename to Glendower to match the given name.
Caitlin of Drogheda. Name and device. Argent, on a bend vert between two shamrocks vert, a shamrock palewise argent.
Submitted as Caitlin OÆDrogheda, the given name has been previously ruled as requiring an Irish byname. The preposition "oÆ" here, while it emulates the patronymic particle, is actually an abbreviated form of English "of". We have changed it to Caitlin of Drogheda under the lingua Anglica allowance for place names since Drogheda is the English form of the placename.
Iefan Colledig ap Dynfwal Abertawe. Badge. Or, a portcullis azure.
A possible conflict was called with Isabella Benalcazar (Fieldless) A rastrillo azure. When this was registered March 1998 it was defined as a Spanish portcullis. Based on al-Jamal's research we are not sure if it is a portcullis; it seems likely that it is in fact a rake head. However, given that it is blazoned as a rastrillo in Libro de Armeria del Reino de Navarra we see no reason to change the blazon. However, we also see no reason not to give it a CD from a portcullis, since we are not sure what the charge is and the two charges do not look at all alike.
Caitriona ni Shuileabhain Mhor. Device. Or crusilly Celtic, an oak tree eradicated vert.
Please instruct the submitter to draw the tree larger.
Cateline Margoteau de Carcasonne. Name and device. Sable estencely, a bat-winged domestic cat sejant contourny regardant wings elevated argent.

Fendrake Marsh, Shire of. Name and device. Vert, a laurel wreath, on a chief embattled argent three ducks close vert.
Originally submitted as Fendrake Mersch it was changed in kingdom to Fen Drakemerschi. However, since Metron Aristron has documented Fenduck from 1620 in the OED, and Smith's English Place-Name Elements, specifically cites bird name + marsh as a type from this form (e.g., Crakemarsh, Henmarsh, Gunneymarsh and Titchmarsh), we have changed it to an English form closer to what was originally submitted.
Medwe Janos. Name and device. Vert fretty Or, a quatrefoil argent.
Mildred of Montrose. Name and device. Per chevron argent and Or, in base a rose slipped and leaved proper, an orle sable.
Sofonisba Alberti. Badge. (Fieldless) A fleur-de-lys per pale sable and argent.
Thomas Logan. Badge. Quarterly gules and sable, two ragged staffs in saltire argent.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Michael Alewright. Name and device. Vert, a sheaf of swords inverted argent, overall a barrel Or.
According to the LoI Alewright was intended to be a constructed occupational surname, intended to denote a brewer. However, no acceptable documentation was provided to show that this was a reasonable form. Period bynames for brewers include Brewere, Brewstere, Brasur, Braceresse, Malter, Maltester, Medemaker, Vineter, Vyntener, Taverner, Tipelere, Gannoker (#s 2, 4, 6 fem. forms; the last 3 are inn-keepers/ale-sellers), Berebrewer, Braciatur, Caumbier, Alemonger, Aleberer, Aleberster (latter two masculine and feminine ale-carriers), Meder, Malteman and Maltgrynder.
The armory is being returned for conflict with Deaton Claymore, Vert, two claymores in saltire surmounted by a third inverted proper enfiling a ducal coronet Or., as noted on the LoI. There is a CD for the addition of the overall charge, and normally there would be another one for inverting primary swords. But since the bulk of the swords are covered by the overall barrel, it loses the CD for inverting.
Muirdeadhach MacBheathain. Device. Gules, a Celtic cross, a bordure embattled Or.
This is visually in conflict with Valeran do Pico (for Casa do Pico), Gules on a cross formy Or, a cross pointed gules, a bordure embattled Or. Visually, Valeron's cross on a cross is just a complex voided cross, which is only one CD from a Celtic cross.
al-Azar Lucero. Device. Or, on a sun sable a decrescent Or, a bordure sable.
This is being returned for conflict with the Ensign of the Kingdom of Ansteorra Or, a mullet of five greater and five lesser points within a bordure sable. However, even if there hadn't been a conflict, this would be returned for violating RfS VII.7.b., "Reconstruction Requirement - Elements must be reconstructible in a recognizable form from a competent blazon." The blazon in the LoI does not adequately reproduce the emblazon, and we cannot devise a blazon that we believe would adequately reproduce it. The moon must be very carefully placed at a slight angle and along the curve of the sun's disk to recreate the emblazon. "Armorial designs requiring such careful placement or specific charge sizes to 'work' or to avoid contrast problems have been returned in the past as not being period style." (Da'ud ibn Auda, LoAR December 1994.)
Cristobal Alvarez. Device. Per bend sinister argent and sable, in chief a heart fracted gules and in base three daggers inverted Or.
This conflicts with Elden the True Per bend sinister argent and sable, a Latin cross clechy gules and three swords inverted Or. There is a CD for the change in type from cross to heart. We give no difference between swords and daggers.
Erich Eadweard Kerr. Device. Per pale wavy sable and vert, a sun in splendor Or.
This is being returned for multiple conflicts including Sara of the Rushes Gules, an estoile of four straight and four rayonny voided rays Or., Wendryn Townsend Azure, a sun in glory Or., Wiliam Allan Barry of six gules and argent, a sun in his glory Or., Macedonia Gules, a sun Or., Kingdom of Atenveldt Per pale argent and azure, a sun in his splendour., Wolfgang de Rotus Quarterly sable and argent, a sun in splendour., Paul of Sunriver Azure, a compass star Or., Rolf the Relentless Pean, a compass-star fitchy of eight Or., and Kingdom of Ansteorra (Tinctureless) A mullet of five greater and five lesser points distilling gouttes. In each case there is one CD for the difference in field.
Even if there had not been any conflicts this would be returned for violating RfS VIII.3., which states in relevant part that: "For instance, a complex line of partition could be difficult to recognize between two parts of the field that do not have good contrast if most of the line is also covered by charges." Here, well over half the complex line of partition between the two low-contrast portions of the field is entirely covered by the charge.
Jozef der Gelehrter. Name and device. Vert, a bend sinister invected argent between a dragon rampant to sinister Or and a pine tree eradicated argent.
Based on Morlet's Noms des personnes, II, p. 66, the more likely period form for the given name would be Josep. The modern German term for a learned man or scholar is Gelehrte as well as Schüler. However, based on the evidence of Socin's (Mittelhochdeutsches Namenbuch, p. 492, the occupational surname for a scholar would be Schüler. Therefore Josep Schüler is the period form of the name. However, we feel that that is more than a "minor change" so we are returning it to the submitter.
The device is being returned for a redraw. All the charges are far too small, and the line of division is drawn with many more invections than necessary. On an ordinary in this orientation, there should be between 5 and 9 bumps on each side. There are 22 visible here.
Kinga MacKinnon. Name.
This is being returned for two reasons. First no period exemplars were presented and none could be found for Kinga as a period abbreviated form of Kunegunda. Secondly, no documentation was presented, and none could be found for regular contact between Hungary and Scotland.
The armory was registered under the holding name Victoria MacKinnon.
Osandrea Elspeth Gabrielle de le Bete. Name and device. Purpure, in fess a scroll argent charged with a quill sable and a unicornate seahorse, a bordure nebuly argent.
The name is being returned for several reasons. First, the constructed name Osandrea is highly unlikely. French does NOT form the feminine by suffixing an "a" to a form like André. Instead, it would add an "e": Andrée. Secondly, the number of name elements that merge into a single name in French in period is limited in the extreme, most commonly reflecting the custom of adding the name of the virgin before or after another given name (e.g., Marie Anne). Thirdly, Osanne itself actually derives from the exclamation usually rendered Hosannah in English. Morlet's Noms des personnes, Vol. II, p. 86 notes several examples of Osanna in period from 861 through to the twelfth century. Fourth, despite what the LoI says, Gaelic does not share much in common with French, and Elspeth is not a reasonable French variant. Finally, no acceptable documentation was provided for de le Bete as a period byname. Osanne Gabriel would be an acceptable name. But as she does not allow any changes, we were forced to return the name.
The armory is being returned for two style reasons. First is the unicornate seahorse. While we would register a seaunicorn, we do not register unicornate horses of any type. Secondly, the quill pen is not entirely on the scroll, but overlaps onto the field which is also grounds for return, since it is barely overall.
Sven Karlsson. Device. Azure, on a plate a viking helm affronty between three natural dolphins naiant in annulo sable.
This is being returned for three reasons. First, this conflicts with Rhaithyn yr Gwlad yr Had, Azure a plate charged with a cauldron and a domestic cat in its curiosity sable., with one CD for changes to the tertiaries. Second, this violates RfS XI.4, which is our rules on 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, but may also appear on other geometric charges such as roundels, cartouches, etc. 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."
Finally, this is being returned for lack of documentation on the viking helm. This does not match the exemplars already registered, and no documentation was included to show this is a period artifact.
Zarges Rüdi. Name.
This is being returned for lack of documentation for the given name. The LoI documented Zarries and Zacharias, not Zarges. Since there was no documentation on the given name and no one could provide any, we are forced to return the name.
The armory was registered under the holding name Chad of One Thousand Eyes.
Dougal MacPherson. Name.
This conflicts with the registered name of Dugald MacPherson. The differences in the given name are directly parallel to those between Mary and Marie, which are held to be equivalent and not significantly different.
The armory was registered under the holding name Dougal of Atenveldt.
Tristan Wulfskin. Name and device. Per bend sinister sable and argent, a round padlock set fesswise, a bordure all counterchanged.
The name is being returned for lack of documentation of the byname. While Wulf and Skin can be documented as period names, no documentation was presented for combining them into one name.
The armory is being returned for several reasons. First, while documentation was presented for round padlocks, the submitted form did not look like the documented forms. Second, the submitted padlock did not have a keyhole, making its identification as a padlock difficult. When that is added to the fact that it was on its side, it became totally unidentifiable. Finally, the counterchanging contributed to the identifiability problem.
Windale, Shire of. Name and device. Argent chaussé azure, in pale a laurel wreath vert and an aeolus azure.
This is being returned for lack of paperwork. No name forms were received and no petition was received. Without a petition showing group support, the submission must be returned.
Hugh Wallace. Device. Azure, two ladles crossed in saltire Or.
This is visually in conflict with Gandharva Candra Azure, two sitars in saltire affronty Or. As drawn the sitars look quite similar to the ladles.
Nostas'ia Stepanova Kievskaia. Badge. (Fieldless) On a flame Or a cross of four pheons conjoined at the points sable.
This conflicts with Kristen Ahearn Vert, upon a ball of flame Or a bull rampant to sinister, head lowered, sable., and Akbar Khayam Pean on a ball of flames Or, a wolf's head erased sable. There is a CD for fieldlessness, but a ball of flames is not sufficiently simple to invoke X.4.j.ii, "In simple cases substantially changing the type of all of a group of identical charges placed entirely on other charges is one clear difference.", and the cross of pheons is considered a single object.
Thyra Beiskaldi Øláfsdóttir. Device. Or chapé ployé purpure, a domestic cat sejant to sinister sable.
This conflicts with Giuliana Margherita Bonaccolsi Per chevron throughout azure and Or, in base a domestic cat sejant contourny sable., with just one CD for the field. While Thyra's cat is not blazoned as being in base, in fact it is quite low, and Giuliana's is rather high, therefore there is no difference for position.
Toby of Isenfir. Device. Potent, a horse rampant Or.
This conflicts with Anne Pomeroy of Woodswell Counter-vair, a mare courant reguardant Or. There is a CD for position, but we give no difference between vair and potent.
André de la Mer. Device. Quarterly vert and azure, a seahorse, a bordure Or.
This is being returned for a redraw. The seahorse as drawn is not in a blazonable position. The upper (horse) part of the body appears to be the default erect, but the lower (fish) part of the body is essentially naiant. It needs be in a standard heraldic position.
Padraic the Fierce. Badge. (Fieldless) A demi-griffin sable within and conjoined to a quatrefoil voided argent.
This is returned for breaking our style rules. A quatrefoil is not a simple enough charge to be voided.
Agnarr Skulason. Device. Quarterly sable and gules, in fess a sword inverted and a drinking horn argent.
This is being returned for breaking RfS XI.3., which states that "Armory that appears to marshall independent arms is considered presumptuous." The rule goes on to note that such marshalled fields "may be used with identical charges over the entire field, or with complex lines of partition or charges overall that were not used for marshalling in period heraldry." Additionally, "Charged sections must all contain charges of the same type to avoid the appearance of being different from each other." Since two different charges are used on the two sides of the palar line, this looks like the marshalled arms of Per fess sable and gules a sword inverted argent, impaled with Per fess gules and sable a drinking horn argent.
A similar return was made 6/96 in the case of Yves le Chat Blanc when Master Da'ud as Laurel returned Per pale sable and ermine, in canton a domestic cat's face argent, a bordure counterchanged argent and sable., and said
"This falls afoul of RfS XI.3., which states that "Armory that appears to marshall independent arms is considered presumptuous." The rule goes on to note that such marshalled fields "may be used with identical charges over the entire field, or with complex lines of partition or charges overall that were not used for marshalling in period heraldry." The use of a counterchanged bordure here is not used in the usual way of an overall charge (indeed, bordures were, and are, used in a number of countries for cadencing), and serves in no way to lessen the appearance of marshalling. Indeed, the fact that the bordure is not counterchanged of the field only serves to accent the appearance of the dimidiation of two independent coats, Sable, in chief two cat's faces, a bordure argent and Ermine, a bordure sable.".
Ahbel of Regnesfolc. Name and device. Azure, two spears in saltire, in chief three bells two and one, all Or.
The name is being returned for lack of documentation for Regnesfolc. According to the LoI it is a registered household name. However, that does not mean that the submitter can use it. Household names, unlike official SCA group names, are not automatically acceptable for SCA name usage. Please inform the submitter that barring documentation that Ahbel is a period form of Abel it is not registerable.
The armory is being returned for a redraw. The primary charges are not recognizable as spears; they are too short, too round, with too large a cross-piece too close behind. They are not in fact recognizably anything that we could reblazon.
Béfind Fholtchaem. Device. Argent, a natural tiger bendwise passant contourny azure.
This is being returned for a redraw. As drawn the tiger is not clearly bendwise or palewise inverted, but something in between. If it is palewise inverted, it would be returned for non period style, but we would register it bendwise.
Derek MacLeod. Device. Gules, on a triangle inverted rayonny Or, a sword azure.
This is being returned for conflict with Emelina Sharparowe Gules on a nesselblatt Or, a seeblatt sable. There is a CD for the changes (type and tincture) of the tertiary. But there is nothing for the change from triangle inverted rayonny to nesselblatt. This is also being returned for unidentifability. Without a blazon there is no way to identify this as a triangle inverted rayonny.
Einarr Thorgrimsson. Device. Quarterly vert and sable, in bend a wolf rampant contourny and a falcon argent.
This is being returned for breaking RfS XI.3., which states that "Armory that appears to marshall independent arms is considered presumptuous." The rule goes on to note that such marshalled fields "may be used with identical charges over the entire field, or with complex lines of partition or charges overall that were not used for marshalling in period heraldry." Additionally, "Charged sections must all contain charges of the same type to avoid the appearance of being different from each other." A wolf and a falcon are not of the same type, and so this has the appearance of marshalling 1. Vert a wolf rampant contourny argent, 2&3. Sable; and 4. Vert a falcon argent.
Faoiltighearna inghean mhic Ghuaire. Badge (Fieldless) On a flame proper, a delf argent.
This is being returned for breaking the rule of tincture. While the flame was blazoned on the LoI as proper, it was mostly Or. That put a white charge on a yellow one, which breaks the rule of contrast.
When resubmitting please consider Reginleif the Unruly Sable, on a flame gules fimbriated Or a rough-legged draught horse forcene argent., and Grimn the Hele-Bourne Sable, upon a flame gules fimbriated Or, a skull argent. Each gets a CD for the field; each gets nothing for the type only of the tertiary, since a flame is not a suitable charge for RFS X.4.j.ii. "In simple cases substantially changing the type of all of a group of identical charges placed entirely on other charges is one clear difference." Therefore, making the flame red will result in conflict.
Kat'ryna Neblaga Volchkova. Device. Per chevron azure and argent, three annulets counterchanged.
This technically conflicts with Kazimir Petrovich Pomeshanov Per chevron throughout azure and argent, two rapiers inverted and a slow match counterchanged., 6/91). The slow match is in its standard coiled form which is not substantially different from an annulet, leaving just a single CD for the type of the charges.
Kusunoki Yoshimoto. Device. Argent, three barrulets wavy azure and in chief a roundel sable.
This conflicts with Johann Lorinson Per chevron embattled argent and gules, in chief a gunstone., because Argent, three bars wavy azure is equivalent to a field Barry wavy argent and azure. 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 Armory, pp 59, 88; Foster, p. 145). The same thing is found in 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, there is just one CD for difference in the fields.
Lucia Francesca de Valencia. Badge (Fieldless) A sinister hand couped at the wrist maintaining an egg argent.
This is being returned for a redraw. The hand is not in any heraldic posture, but is drawn in trian aspect, the fingers angling "away" from the viewer. Such drawing style has long been cause for return. "The [charge] is in trian aspect, which is out of period." (Wilhelm von Schlüssel, LoAR 27 August 1980, p. 9) "The [monsters] are both in a truly non- heraldic posture and in trian aspect. This is not period style." (Alisoun MacCoul of Elphane, LoAR 30 July 1989, p. 14)
Morgan ap Rhys ap Bran. Device. Counter-ermine, a sun charged with a lion's head cabossed gules, and on a chief embattled argent, two roses sable.
This is being returned for a redraw. The embattled chief has confusing lines where the field is not defined. More importantly, the lion's head cabossed is neither truly on the sun nor overall, but something halfway between. Note: if this had not been returned it would have been pended, as no tincture was given on the LoI for the sun, which is argent.
Muriel de Chimay. Badge. (Fieldless) A fleur-de-lys conjoined in base with two swan's heads couped at the nape and addorsed Or.
This has two problems, either of which are ground for return. First, this conflicts with France (Fieldless) A fleur-de-lys Or. Visually it appears to be a fleur-de-lys flory. Second, as drawn the swan's heads are not identifiable, it is not clear what they are without a blazon.
Wilhelm Baumhecker. Badge. Vert, a stump Or.
This conflicts with Huette Aliza von und zu Ahrens und Mechthildberg Vert, a tree blasted throughout Or. There is, at best, a CD between a tree blasted and a stump, but not complete difference of charge.
André Davignon. Name.
This is being returned for an aural conflict with Ambré d'Avignon, as cited on the LoI. The change from André to Ambré is too slight to grant difference.
André the Rorqual. Name.
While the LoI documented Rorqual as the French word for whale, no documentation was presented for it being used as a byname. Furthermore according to Dauzat's Dictionnaire Étymologique et Historique du Français, rorqual is first found in 1808 and derives from old Norwegian raudh-hwalr, "red whale." Barring documentation of its period use as a name this must be returned.
Bryn-a-Môr, Canton of. Name and device. Per fess wavy Or and barry wavy azure and Or, in chief three arrows inverted palewise surmounted by a bow fesswise and in base a laurel wreath vert.
This name is being returned for conflicting with the college of Bryn Mawr which is important enough to have its own entry in The Encyclopedia Britannica. Since we do not form holding names for groups, the device must be returned as well.
Saint Malachy, College of. Device. Argent, in pale two hammers in saltire and an anvil sable within a laurel wreath, on a chief wavy vert an open book argent.
This is being returned for redesign. As drawn the hammers are too small to be considered part of the primary charge group. Normally we would send it back for a redraw, but if the hammers were drawn large enough, the submission would have to be returned for violating our rule on "slot machine" with three dissimilar charges in the same group.
Ysabella de Montrose. Device. Quarterly Or and sable, in dexter chief a rose proper.
This conflicts with the House of Lancaster A rose gules. There is one CD for fielded vs. fieldless, but nothing for position on the field versus a fieldless badge or for the tincture of the barbs and seeds.
Catherine Elisabeth Stewart. Device. Sable, a portcullis issuant from chief argent, in base two cats sejant addorsed forepaw raised Or.
This is being returned for a redraw. The animals in base are not clearly cats or any other animal.
Ingelri Kelvin. Name and device. Quarterly sable and argent, a cross crosslet fitchy between four fleur-de-lys counterchanged.
The name is being returned for lack of documentation. While the submitter provides copies from The Medieval Knight which said Ingelri was a name found on a Viking era sword, no documentation could be found for Ingelri in any other source. Since there is no way to know if the book was accurate, and or if the name was in the correct format, barring documentation we are forced to return the name.
Since the submitter will not take a holding name we are forced to return the armory as well.
Stephen of Forth Castle. Device. Sable, on a saltire argent two swords inverted gules.
This is being returned for multiple conflicts including Dianne of the Golden Chalice Sable, on a saltire argent, a chalice Or enflamed sable., Anne de la Tour Lointaine Sable on a saltire argent, five shamrocks vert., and Edwin of Svart Elder Sable, on a saltire argent, two swords Or, hilted and enflamed sable. In each case, there is only one CD, for the changes to the tertiary charges.
Judah ben Issachar. Device. Quarterly sable and checky argent and purpure, a decrescent, between and conjoined to its horns a sun Or.
This conflicts with the badge of Christopher Edward Hawkins Sable a decrescent Or. There is a CD for the field, but because of itÆs size and placement, the sun carries the same visual weight as maintained charges. Since we don't grant any difference for maintained charges, the sun provides no difference since it has the same visual weight as them.
Leah Kasmira of Natterhelm. Device reblazon. Gules, a catamount couchant guardant coward Or, a bordure vair.
What is depicted is not "coward". It is in the normal position for feline beasts couchant. See the illustrations in Fox-Davies (Complete Guide to Heraldry, p. 185) and FriarÆs New Dictionary of Heraldry (p. 33) for classic depictions of this. Even if it was correctly drawn as "coward" we would not blazon it. Finally, the submitter has tried to get the position of the tail blazoned before and was told no. We quote from the March 1993 LoAR
"Leah Kasmira of Natterhelm. Blazon correction. Gules, a cat-a-mountain couchant guardant, tail reflexed to base Or, orbed vert, within a bordure vair ancient.
The submitter wishes her device's blazon to specify the exact placement of the cat's tail. (She's also added the tincture of the eyes, which isn't in the current blazon, registered 31 Oct 82.) While I sympathize with the submitter's wish to have her emblazon rendered as she prefers, this can't be done at the expense of correct blazonry. The posture of the tail is heraldically insignificant; moreover, the proposed reblazon doesn't use standard heraldic terms. Reflexed to base is not to be found in Parker, Franklyn & Tanner, Woodward, or any of our normal texts; nor is it found in the OED. As Lord Crescent noted, it seems pointless to "clarify" a blazon with an ambiguous phrase. This seems to be a problem more easily solved by communication with the artists than by torturous reblazon. [March 1993]
Pierre Gaston de Vallier. Device. Azure, a lion rampant, on a chief embattled Or three fleurs-de-lys azure.
This conflicts with Jowell Toledero Azure, a lion rampant reguardant Or, langued and armed gules, the sinister paw maintaining an estoile of seven points argent, on a chief arched embattled Or a shawm proper. There is one CD for changes to the tertiaries, but nothing for the addition of the enarching of the chief.
Medwe Janos. Badge. (Fieldless) A quatrefoil argent.
According to the LoAR of 9/90, page 16 "There is not really any visual difference between quatrefoils and cinquefoils." Regretfully, this is in conflict with Titus of Wormwood, Purpure, a cinquefoil slipped and singly leaved argent., as cited on the LoI.
The following item is pended to the DECEMBER 1998 meeting.
Thora of Skye. device. Argent, a chevron, in chief a decrescent and an increscent azure overall a wolf sejant sable.
The LoI omitted the tincture of the wolf, which is sable.
