Ashlynn Blackhart. Name and device. Argent, a heart sable, on a chief doubly-enarched gules a seax fesswise reversed and inverted argent.
Found on the LoI as Ashlynn Blackheart it was originally submitted as Aislynn Blackhart, and changed in kingdom. Since Blackhart could be an inn sign it is registerable. Therefore we have restored the byname to the originally submitted form.

James Parker. Name.
Jelyan of Lindisfarne. Device. Per saltire gules and vert, a cross of Calatrava and on a chief Or a hawk's bell vert between two more gules.
A possible conflict with Francesco Greco Azure, a Latin cross flory and on a chief Or three compass stars gules. was called. There is a CD for field, but the question was asked if there was a CD for changing type only of the tertiaries; whether it was eligible for X.4.j.ii. since the tertiaries while the same, do not have the same tincture. Having the tertiaries different tinctures does not make them ineligible for X.4.j.ii, and so this is clear.
Katerine Rowley. Name.

Submitted as Shaun of the Vert Forest, no documentation was presented for vert as a modifier for forest. We have eliminated it in order to register the name. Shaun is the submitter's legal first name.
Snorri Bjarnarson. Name and device. Per pale ermine and counterermine, atop a double-horned anvil two ravens close respectant counterchanged.
Submitted as Snorri Vatnsalfur Bjarnarson, Vatnsalfur was glossed as a constructed epithet meaning water-sprite. However, no documentation was presented to show it was an epithet that a human being would using. We have eliminated it in order to register the name and device.

Denise Duvalier. Name.
Eilis Ballagh. Name.
Submitted as Eilis na Ballagh, the na does not belong, since Ballagh is an epithetic surname formed from the Irish adjective ballach (speckled, marked). Therefore, we have removed it.

Gorm of Berra. Name and device. Azure, a dexter hand within an orle of fetterlocks argent.

Rhiannon of Berra. Device. Azure, a bend sinister between a unicorn couchant reguardant contourny and another couchant reguardant argent.
Tonwen ferch Morien. Name.
Yarnvid, College of. Name change from College of Yarvid.
While registered in July 1979 as College of Yarvid, the group has thought that what was registered as Yarnvid. There is no record in kingdom or Laurel files as to what was submitted; the only record that it was registered is the appearance of the acceptance in the LoAR.
No documentation could be produced for the form Yarvid, and Fause Losenge was able to provide citations showing that Yarnvid could be a plausible Anglicization of "Járnviðr" which is an actual place in Denmark. Therefore, we are registering the change.

Brigid Findlater. Name.

Conna ingen uí Chearbhaill. Name and device. Quarterly azure and vert, a cross fusilly between four roundels argent.
Submitted as Conna ingen uí Cearbhaill, the byname needed to be into the genitive. We have done so.
David Mac Kenna. Name (see PENDS for device).
Evangelia de Martin. Device. Azure, a chevron throughout wavy and in base three mullets and a crescent in cross argent.
Gotfridus von Schwaben. Device. Vert, on a bend sinister between two stags rampant Or, three horses rampant palewise sable.
Gwendolen Eve MacDonald. Name and device. Vert, on a sun argent a thistle proper, on a chief argent a sword fesswise vert.
Submitted as Gwendolyn Eve MacDonald, the submitted spelling violated a precedent set down in the cover letter of August 1995 which said:
"Gwendolyn is a modern spelling variant of the name of a fictional character (Guendolen) in the Historia Regum Brittaniae whose name is based on a misreading of the masculine name Guendoleu. The name was not in common use in period, in my experience, although it certainly is in the SCA. We should probably just go ahead and declare it in the same category as Ceridwen and Rhiannon as "not historically justifiable but too deeply rooted to get rid of without a fuss".' The name is certainly quite common in the SCA: in one spelling or another it has been registered to more than 50 different people. Given this level of popularity, I am reluctant to ban the name outright despite the lack of any real justification for it. I am equally reluctant to extend the allowance to modern forms of the name, however. Therefore the name will henceforth be considered `SCA-compatible' in the forms Guendolen and Gwendolen but not the modern Gwendolyn, and the underlying principle will be extended to any other forms that are proposed. (This decision can be thought of as an extension of the `Rule of Two Weirdnesses': the name itself is one weirdness, and a modern spelling is another.)"
Jenna of Southwind Hall. Badge. Purpure, four spoons in cross, handles to center Or.
Johannes Gordon. Name and device. Quarterly Or and azure, an eagle displayed between four crosses formy fitchy, a bordure counterchanged.
Mellitus of Rouncivale. Device. Azure, on a chevron between three flames Or, each charged with a torteau, five torteaux.
Sato Jirö. Name and device. Argent, two spears inverted in saltire sable between four delfs saltirewise square pierced gules.
Humalasalo, Canton of. Name and badge. Gules, a hop pole between three tankards Or.
Innogen Mac Leod. Name and device. Per bend gules and azure, a rose argent and a strung bow and arrow bendwise reversed Or.
The question was raised as to whether or not this is considered slot machine since it has three dissimilar charges in one group. While it is true that it has three charges, when a bow and arrow are in their standard, expected position they are considered one charge, just like a sword in a scabbard is considered one charge. It is only when they are separated, or put into non standard positions for their normal use, such as being crossed in saltire, that they become two separate charges.
Nikolas de Mont Nord. Device change. Sable, a fleur-de-lys ermine.
His former device Sable, a cockerel's leg bendwise sinister couped argent and a bordure embattled argent goutty de sang., is hereby released.

Michael de Biggleswade. Name and device. Per bend sinister gules and vert, an ermine statant ermine.
Aelesia Emelyne Couchur. Device. Azure, a chevron embattled argent.
She has received permission to conflict from Connor MacKenzie Azure, a chevron embattled argent between two wolf's heads couped contourny and a sun Or. This is clear of Morien ap Rhys of Cardiff Azure, a chevron raguly throughout argent between two mullets of six points Or and a unicorn statant argent, armed and crined Or. There is one CD for removing the secondary group, and one for the difference between embattled versus raguly, since embattled has a complex line on just the top side of the chevron and raguly has it on the top and bottom side. This is also clear of John de Caversham Azure, a chevron couched from dexter argent., with one CD for the embattling and a second for orientation; the default orientation of the chevron versus couched from dexter.
Aislinn Chaomhanach. Name and device. Or, on a cross nowy quadrate between in chief two shamrocks vert, a thunderbolt Or.
Submitted as Aislinn Aine Caomhanach, Gaelic doesn't have double given names. Therefore, we have removed the second middle name Aine. We have put the byname into the proper genitive form. Note: Caomhanach is not a patronymic surname.
Alycie MacAulay. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Amicia Readyman. Name change from holding name Amicia of Glynn Rhe.
Aubrée Symonne de Ver. Name.

Cyrille Robert. Name.
Edward de Molay. Name.
Ingelric Kelvin. Name and device. Quarterly sable and argent, a cross crosslet fitchy between four fleurs-de-lys counterchanged.
Submitted as Ingelrii Kelvin the documentation for Ingelrii came from the name being incised on the blades of some 10th century swords. No other documentation was found for this spelling, though the form Ingelric is found in Searle's Onomasticon Anglo-Saxonicum. The forms found on the swords were INGRLRIIMEFECIT and INGELRIH FECIT, which mean Ingelrii made me, with Ingelrii not being in the nominative case. Since there is no acceptable documentation for the form Ingelrii being used as a name in and of itself, we have changed it to the closest documentable form.
Jean-Michel d'Aix en Provence. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Katerina filia Jehan de Londres. Device. Per pale azure and vert, an angel argent, in chief three fleur-de-lys Or.
Malcolm Keith. Device. Per chevron azure and vert, two mullets and a fleur-de-lys Or.

Please show the submitter on how to draw a correct wavy.
Jibra'il al-Nasrani. Name change from Padraig MacAndreis.
The name was submitted with some minor diacritical marks. al-Jamal assures us that they are not necessary, so we are registering this without them, since some of them are almost impossible to reproduce.

Kateryn of Cornwall. Device. Per bend sinister gules and sable, a bend sinister argent between a sun in splendor and an increscent moon argent.
Kirsten Thorsteinsdottir. Device. Per chevron azure and argent, two compass stars argent and a lion’s head erased gules.
This conflicts with Alrikr af Stjarnaheimi Per chevron throughout azure and argent, two compass stars and a pithon embowed counterchanged., from whom she has received permission to conflict. This is clear of Deporodh of Rannoch Per chevron abased azure and argent, two mullets argent and a birch leaf erect proper., with one CD for changing the type of every charge and one for changing the tincture of the bottommost charge.
Maridonna Scarlatti. Name and device. Gules, issuant from a woman’s head proper, crined sable, three legs in triskelion Or.

Wilhelm Weissfalke. Name.
Alpensee, Shire of. Name.
Andries du Fay. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Solveig Ívarsdóttir. Name.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Isa Estreys. Device. Azure ermined argent, a four bird-winged wyvern, head to sinister, displayed argent.
This conflicts with Artus Falconieri’s Quarterly pean and purpure a wyvern displayed argent, with one CD for the field. While adding wings to a charge is usually significant, adding a second set of wings to an already winged charge is not of comparable visual weight, and is insufficient to produce a countable difference. This also runs afoul of our rule of two weirdnesses, by having a four-winged wyvern and a bird-winged wyvern.
Michael Grey. Device. Per pale vert and sable, six wheat stalks fretted Or, a label argent.
This is being returned for a redraw. While it is true that there were a number of different type of labels used in period, this does not resemble any of them.
Tjörvi Fasthaldi. Device. Quarterly gules and sable, in chief two cat’s eyes Or pupilled sable, a bordure argent.
This is being returned for a redraw. The cat's eyes do not resemble natural cat's eyes or the one in the PicDic.
Connor Makinzie. Name.
This conflicts with Connor MacKenzie, registered 10/98.
Katherine Rose Oliver. Device. Per chevron ployé argent and vert, two ivy leaves and an owl close counterchanged.
This conflicts with Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn Per chevron argent and vert, in base a falcon close argent. We give no difference for the ployé, or between two raptors in the same position. This leaves only one CD, for the addition of the ivy leaves.
Meadhbh inghean Róis. Device. Vert, a chevron and in base a triquetra argent.
This conflicts with Megan Silverstar Vert, a chevron throughout and in base a mullet of eight points argent. There is a CD for changing mullet to the triquetra, but nothing for the throughoutness of the chevron. As a general rule we grant a difference between an ordinary throughout and its non-throughout form. Chevrons are a bit of a special case, since "throughout" has a different meaning when applied to them, referring to the point touching the top of the shield rather than the ends. The distinction between chevrons and chevrons throughout is, in period heraldry, one of regional style or artistic preference. The same coat may be found depicted both ways. We would, however, grant difference between a chevron (whether "throughout" or not) and a chevron couped, i.e. with the ends cut off without touching the sides of the shield. This is identical to our practice with other ordinaries, such as fesses throughout vs fesses couped.
Robin Anderson of Ross. Device. Per saltire azure and purpure, on a roundel argent a bird migrant sable.
This conflicts with Alison Gray of Owlwood Per pale vert and sable, on a plate an owl affronty perched on a branch sable. There is a CD for the field, but the difference between owl affronty and dove issuant is basically just a posture difference and so not worth a CD in a tertiary charge
Anastasia Elgiva Orpett. Device. Purpure, in pale a mullet of four points Or and two lily blossoms crossed in saltire argent.;
This is being returned for a redraw. The flowers are not identifiable as any type of flower. Furthermore, they are not truly in saltire or in pile, or in any other blazonable position.
Gethyn Tal mab Cadwygaun. Badge. Vert, semy-de-lys Or, a tower argent.
This is being returned for a redraw. The semy does not look like fleur-de-lys or any other type of heraldic charge.
Elspeth MacLean. Name.
This conflicts with the already registered Elspeth nic Léighinn.
Julien de Montfort. Badge. (Fieldless) A leonine sagittary passant argent.
This conflicts with Sumer Redmaene Purpure, a centauress argent, crined gules, hooved and nippled Or, with a wreath of nasturtiums proper in her hair. There is one CD for fieldlessness, but nothing for the difference between the two types of sagittaries, nothing for the gender difference, and nothing for the crining.
Marinus, Barony of. Badge for Award of the Sandpiper. Per pale vert and azure, a mermaid and a merman playing flutes within a bordure argent.
This submission has two problems: it has the appearance of being impaled arms, prohibited by RfS XI.3., and it has two non-identical but insignificantly different charges, running afoul of the "Sword and Dagger" rule. RfS XI.3.a. notes that a submission can avoid the appearance of marshalling with "identical charges over the entire field." While a mermaid and a merman are very similar, they are not identical. The bordure by longstanding precedent is insufficient to remove this appearance. At least as long ago as 10/90 Laurel ruled "The appearance of marshalled arms here is overwhelming, even with the bordure as a cadency charge. The intent of the 'overall charge' requirement of XI.3.a is one of a charge lying in the center of the field, not a peripheral charge such as a chief or bordure (which were often used as cadency charges).
Séamus Ó Cuileáin. Badge. (Fieldless) A cross formy convex Or.
His proposed device Vert, a cross formy convexed Or within a stag's attires, a bordure raguly argent. was returned on the December 1998 LoAR for the undocumented form of his cross. At that time we said:
The submitter has appealed the previous return of his submission for using a non-period cross by providing a copy of a picture from Foster's Dictionary of Heraldry which shows a similar cross. However, he was only able to find the cross he wants in one place in Foster's, and Foster's is a 19th century redraw of medieval armory. And, Foster was not copying from medieval originals, but rather from 18th and 19th century editions of Renaissance copies of the medieval originals. Brault's redraw in Aspologia III shows a standard cross. He also provided a copy of a period woodcut, showing a cross similar, but not identical to what he is submitting. Since the cross he is submitting is not the same as what is in the period woodcut, it does not help his case. Since we have used this woodcut for documentation in a different case to register the cross in the woodcut as an unblazoned variant of formy, if he resubmits drawing the cross to look like the one in the woodcut, barring any other problems, it should be acceptable.
Since this is the same cross that was returned previously, we see no reason to overturn that ruling.
Teresa de León. Name.
This conflicts with Teresa de Leon, one of the Queens of Spain and therefore important enough to protect.
Uilliam MacCloskey. Device change. Ermine, a bear passant, on a chief sable three roses argent barbed vert seeded Or.
This is being returned for a redraw. The bear is not clearly a bear, nor any other animal.
Red Lórien of Oak River. Device. Gules, a sword inverted winged, blade on a bed of flames inverted, in chief three compass stars, all within an orle of oak leaves Or.
This submission suffers from the same problem which resulted in a return to Walram von Laufenberg (Fieldless) A flame gules, winged argent, surmounted by the blade of a sword proper. on the May 1998 LoAR. At that time we said:
"While blazoned on the LoI as (Fieldless) Between a pair of wings argent a sword proper blade enflamed gules., we have reblazoned to more accurately reflect the emblazon, as "Period enflamed has a few gouttes of flame scattered around the edge of the charge being enflamed. Where the flame completely surrounds an object, that object is said to be 'on a flame.'" (Da'ud ibn Auda, LoAR May 1992, p. 26). "We don't permit flaming fimbriation in Society armory." (Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, 24 July 1993 Cover Letter (with the June 1993 LoAR), pp. 5-6). "
We see no reason to overturn our ruling, and we are returning this for the same reason.
Tara the Twin of Dartford.
The LoI glossed Tara as the Anglicized form of Temair. Unfortunately, the statement was not correct. According to the LoAR of January 1994:
"The prior registration of Tara as a given name hinged on the statement ‘If the given name and the place name [Temair] are identical in Irish, and Tara is a valid anglicization of the latter, then it should be acceptable as an anglicization of the former.’ The problem is that Tara is not an acceptable Anglicization of Temair; only of the genitive case of the name: Temra (pronounced approximately 'tev-ra). Tara is not an Anglicization of Temair but rather an English name for the place derived specifically from the context in which it appears as a place name (e.g., ‘hill of Tara’). (A similar case occurs with Erin, as a poetic English name for Ireland is based on the genitive case (Éireann) of the Irish name Éire.) Since the given name Temair would not normally be found in the genitive, it is unlikely that it would be taken into English in the genitive form."
Based on this precedent we are returning the name.
The armory was registered under the holding name Debbie the Twin of Dartford.
Ulrike von Retelsdorf. Name.
According to the submitter, Ulrike is the feminine form of Ulrich. Unfortunately, no documentation could be found to support that usage in period. Furthermore, no documentation was presented for Retelsdorf. The LoI said that "[t]here is a town named Rettel found under Rettenbach on p. 392 of (Bahlow-Geographische). While there is a minor difference in the spelling, we consider the name Retelsdorf (Retels Village) plausible given the existence of a town of Rettel. Since no information was given for the derivation of Retels, we have no way of determining if the argument is valid.
Ælfstan Fæstenwulfe. Name.
This is being returned for lack of documentation on the byname. The armory was registered under the holding name Ælfstan of Calontir.
Ælfstan Fæstenwulfe. Household name. Hælendgeard
This is being returned for lack of documentation on the household name. Additionally, the LoI glossed it as meaning sacred or healing enclosure. No documentation was presented to show that follows our exemplars for household names.
All Saints, College of. Device. Azure, a robed man arms outstretched argent, haloed Or, maintaining in his sinister hand a laurel wreath Or.
This conflicts with Gilrae of Moorburn Azure, a fox-headed woman affronty statant, hands crossed at the waist, vested argent. with no countable differences.
Aneala, Barony of. Order name for Order of the Valiant Swans of Aneala.
This was an appeal of a return by Laurel in November 1996. The original return was because the order name was in the plural and a group name was attached, neither of which had period documentation.
They have provided documentation for the use of a group name in an order name, and for plural usage, but these both come from translations of order names from modern sources. This is not evidence that it was done in period. This is especially relevant in the case of the plural, since every exemplar used knights and no other word in the plural.
Jocelyn ni Morgunn. Name.
This is being returned for construction problems. Jocelyn is a distinctly English form and it does not seem to have migrated to Ireland so there is no Irish form parallel to it. Morgunn is Welsh and takes ferch not ni. Since she will not take major changes we are forced to return this, but the most logical and registerable form for this name would be Jocelyn Morgan.
Leofwynn Wulfinga and Eric Alard. Household name for House Red.
This is being returned for incorrect construction. No documentation was presented for the form House Red, and no period analogies could be found. Possible models for household names include Scottish clans (Clan Stewart), ruling dynasties (House of Anjou), professional guilds (Baker's Guild of Augsburg, Worshipful Company of Coopers), military units (The White Company), and inns (House of the White Hart).
Alycie MacAulay. Device. Sable, on a bend cotised argent, three turtles vert.
This conflicts with Cain Saethydd Sable, on a bend cotised argent, three arrows inverted sable. There is but the one CD for the changes to the tertiaries.
Francesca Da Trani. Badge. Sable, a lion's head cabossed Or transfixed by a pomegranate gules, slipped and leaved vert.
This is being returned for style. It is two steps removed from any attested period practice. The charge is essentially a lion’s head jessant-de-pomegranate. This is unattested, but not by itself cause for return. In considering the submission of Eudoxia d’Antioche with an owl’s head jessant-de-lys in March 1996 Laurel wrote "There was ... some concern that we here we are getting too far from period practice. (Period practice being leopard's head jessant-de-lys; one step from period practice being other beast's heads; and two steps from period practice being other types of heads, including birds' heads.) Given that we have in recent years a number of different types of heads (including humanoid) jessant of items other than a fleur-de-lys (including a complex cross), Laurel does not feel that this submission is so far from SCA practice as warrant a return on that ground." The second problem is that the pomegranate here is entirely on the lion’s head, not overlapping as does a true jessant treatment. This makes the submission two steps removed from period practice, which is cause for return.
Hugh Montaigu du Col. Name and device. Azure, three bendlets enhanced Or, in base a cross-crosslet argent.
This device, blazoned Per bend bendy azure and Or and azure, in base a cross crosslet argent. was registered to him under the name Hugh Montagud September, 1996.
Jean-Michel d'Aix en Provence. Device. Per pale vert and sable, two griffins rampant each sustaining a sword and a griffin rampant sustaining a harp Or.
This is being returned for violating our rules on slot machine with three different charges in the same group (the griffins, the sword and the harp). The held charges are large enough to be sustained and count for difference. However, since they are sustained, they become part of the charge group.
Alexander de Seton of Altavia. Badge. (Fieldless) On a seahorse erect maintaining a lochaber axe azure, a heart gules fimbriated argent.
This is being returned for the fimbriation of the heart. RfS VIII.3. notes that "Voiding and fimbriation may only be used with simple geometric charges placed in the center of the design." While a heart is simple enough to fimbriate as a sole primary charge, as a tertiary it is so small as to lose identifiability when fimbriated.
Ariadne la Noire. Device. Sable, three swans displayed, wings inverted, a bordure Or.
This is being returned for a redraw. The swans are not clearly rousant or displayed nor in any other heraldic posture.
Cecil Dupont. Name.
This is being returned for administrative reasons. We received no paperwork for this submission.
Daria of Stormhaven. Device. Argent, a fess embowed to base between three lightning bolts in pile and a cloud purpure.
This is being returned for breaking our rule of two weirdnessess. The first is the fess embowed to base. While fesses were embowed in period armory, they were always embowed to chief, representing the curvature of the shield. The second is the use of the lightening bolts. While the lightning bolts were used in period armory, they were only used as part of a thunderbolt, and not as independent elements on their own.
Donato Pulcinella. Badge. Sable, a crossbow and on a chief Or a chain sable.
This is being returned for administrative reasons. No mini emblazon was included on the LoI.
Dougal of Icolmkill. Device. Per fess Or and argent, an roundel sable between two dogs statant in annulo gules.
This is being returned for a redraw. The dogs are not really in annulo, and that if they are not in annulo they violate our ban on inverting animate charges.
Ravenslake, Shire of. Badge. Argent, a raven close to sinister sable a bordure wavy azure.
This is in conflict with the Alyna Duchez Argent, a raven rising wings elevated and addorsed sable, beaked and membered gules, maintaining in its dexter claw a heart sable all within a bordure nebuly azure. We give no difference between wavy and nebuly, nor for maintained charges, so there is only one CD for position of the raven. It also conflicts Kathren of Sandesward Argent, a legless quail close to sinister regardant sable., with one CD for the addition of the bordure.
Saint Michael and All Angels, College of. Name and device. Azure, on an open book between three angels argent, a laurel wreath vert.
This is being returned for administrative reasons. No paperwork was received.
Siani Glendower. Device. Azure, two pallets and on a chief argent three crosses fleury sable.
This is being returned for a redraw. The chief is far too thin, and the crosses, as drawn, are not clearly crosses, or any other identifiable charge.
Daniel Theoson of Mightrinwood. Transfer and acceptance of the registered device of Theo of Mightrinwood. Purpure, a sun of eight wavy rays sable, fimbriated Or.
Daniel is the legal son of Theo of Mightrinwood, who died in the last year. He used his position as executor of the estate to register his name. Normally we would not have registered it without a written statement of permission, since it violates our rules on presumption. However, since he is Theo's son and executor of the estate we permitted it. But, granting him the armory is a different case.
We already have a mechanism whereby armory can be inherited through the use of a heraldic will. But, in this case no heraldic will was submitted to the College of Arms. And, inheriting armory is different from presumption.
In the case of presumption, if Count Theo has a other children, they too could use his name in a similar fashion to the way Daniel has, but only one could use the undifferenced arms.
Furthermore, no proof was given, outside of a statement in the LoI, that Daniel is Theo's only heir, and executor of the estate. Given such documentation, we would consider transferring the armory to him. Absence such documentation, we would be willing to register armory to Daniel that was one CD away from Theo's.
Diarmuid mac Nessa. Device. Azure, a boar statant and a bordure rayonny argent.
This is being returned for a redraw. The rayons on the bordure are far too small and too close together, producing the classic "pinking shears" rayonny, which has been grounds for return for the last ten years.
Gerhardt Drachenmacher. Name.
This is being returned for lack of documentation of the byname. No documentation was presented and none could be found to justify it.
Günther Klör von Gurk. Name.
The only documentation for Gurk was as the name of a river, and no documentation was presented for using von with a river name. Since the submitter would not take a major change, we were forced to return the name and create a holding name.
The armory was registered under the holding name Günther Klör of the Citadel of the Southern Pass.
Márgrég inghean uí Chaiside. Name and device. Azure, on a bend sinister enarched argent between a decrescent and an increscent Or, three trees palewise eradicated proper.
No name form was received so we are forced to return the name. Since there is no name, we are forced to return the armory as well.
Martim Ruiz do Porto. Badge. (Fieldless) A marten sejant argent maintaining a cross-crosslet fitchy gules.
This conflicts with Perygen Northynbr Sable, an otter (enhydra lutra) sejant regardant argent holding bendwise a felling-axe argent hilted proper. There is nothing for type between a marten and an otter. The maintained charges do not count for difference, leaving the only difference the one for fieldlessness.
Michael die Zauberzunge von Essen. Device. Sable, a chevron Or between three Latin crosses gules fimbriated and a cobra coiled erect affronty Or.
This is being returned for the fimbriated crosses. According to RfS VIII.3 Voiding and fimbriation may only be used with simple geometric charges placed in the center of the design. The crosses are not in the center of the design.
Roger de Gilbert. Name and device. Argent, a palm tree couped sable and in base between two roses proper, on a point pointed fleury gules, a rose argent barbed and seeded proper.
No name form was received so we are forced to return the name. Since there is no name, we are forced to return the armory as well.
Rose Owyne. Device. Azure, a bend wavy between a drop spindle and a cup, a bordure wavy argent.
This is being returned for a redraw. The wavy is so faint to be almost unnoticeable. Additionally, both the drop spindle and the cup are drawn three dimensionally.
Törägänä Al'altun-Bäki Khanzade. Name and device. Azure, a tanit between in fess a hand of fatima bendwise and another bendwise sinister all between Arabic words "laha badraaw" and "fahalayimiska" Or.
No name form was received so we are forced to return the name. Since there is no name, we are forced to return the armory as well. However, both the name and armory have serious problems that we feel obligated to mention to help the submitter when he resubmits.
The commentary on the problems with the name was done by Pennon who said:
"The documentation that the submitter uses is a good book for Mongol history and a good book for names. But it is not a good book for spelling. The rest of the documentation is fine for each element. But they all really don't go together.
Toragana should be spelled Döregene as it is on page 239 of The Secret History of the Mongols, translation by Francis Woodman Cleaves. T and D are interchangeable in Mongolian so the spelling Töregene is equally as valid. Al Altun is fine as it stands, but not Al Altun-Baki. Al Altun is the original form of the name and could be joined to Al-Altun to form the name Töregene Al-Altun. This I feel is registerable. However, Baki, or better spelled Beki is a title meaning female chieftain or shaman. I have seen it describe both males, females, chieftains and shamans. I am going to request that this be restricted as a title because of its use in period. I have not yet had the needed time to put the research together for this. Al Altun can be found on page 229 of The Secret History of the Mongols. Khanzade, while it may look Mongol is not. It is Arabic or Turkic. There is no reason that pure Mongol and Arabic or Turkic cannot be mixed. The real problem is that Mongols didn't use three part names. I don't say three element names here because they did do three element names, but not of this form. In period the Mongols never would have used Khanzade as a second name.
So in summary, This submitter could have Töregene Al-Altun, Töregene Khanzade, or Al-Altun Khanzade. But Töregene Al-Altun Khanzade matches no known period pattern. There is a later period pattern that might allow Töregenealtun Khanzade."
The armory has two problems. First, no documentation was presented for the "tanit", or, per Meyer's Saracenic Heraldry, "figure 26", "the so-called target" as having been used in period armory. Since the charge has never been registered before, it requires this documentation. Secondly, a translation of the Arabic is required by Laurel precedent and the Administrative Handbook.
Andries du Fay. Device. Vert, a tree issuant from base and in chief three mullets of six points argent.
This conflicts with Ioseph of Locksley Vert, a tree eradicated argent., with one DC for the addition of the mullets, and nothing for throughoutness of a non-ordinary.
The following items are pended to the August 1999 Laurel meeting.
David Mac Kenna. Device. Or, in pale three mullets of eight interlocking mascles gules, a bordure engrailed pean.
The letter had the mascles as pean.
Tristram Hunter. Device. Purpure, a stag's head couped argent within a Bowen knot throughout saltirewise Or.
The LoI has the stag's head as Or, not argent.
Euriant Alessandra Deri. Device. Per chevron vert and gules, on a chevron between an eagle displayed and a fleur-de-lys argent, four roses gules, barbed vert.
The LoI left out the argent, making the armory color on color.
Oswin Attwater. Device. Per pale Or and gules, a dragonfly volant en arriere between three Maltese crosses counterchanged.
The LoI had reversed the blazon.
