Ada Cormack. Name and device. Vert, in saltire a rapier and a sewing needle inverted, on a chief argent three trees proper.
Æthelstan æt Cardeol. Name and device. Per pale gules and sable, a winged stag segreant Or.
Submitted as Æthelstan æt Karlioli, the submitter wanted an authentic Anglo-Saxon name. We have, therefore, substituted the form of the placename found in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, dated to 1092.
Alasdair Mór MacLeòid. Name and device. Sable, a bear’s head erased close contourny and on a chief argent three crosses of Calatrava vert.
Submitted as Alasdair Mór MacLeod, the submitter requested an authentic Gaelic name. We have, therefore, substituted the Gaelic form of MacLeod.
Alisaundre ni Fheidhlimidh. Badge. (Fieldless) A triquetra within and conjoined to a mascle argent.
Arianwen verch Kynwraidd ap Aeddan. Badge. Vert, a hoe bendwise inverted blade to sinsiter Or.
Arnulf von Cilli. Name and device. Per bend Or and vert, a scythe sable and a garb Or.
Borealis, Barony of. Order name Order of the Cup of Borealis.
Borealis, Barony of. Order name Order of the Golden Spoon.
Borealis, Barony of. Order name Order of the Silverwolf.
Borealis, Barony of. Badge for the Order of the Silverwolf. Azure, in pale two wolf’s heads erased addorsed and conjoined at the neck argent and two calipers in chevron inverted the chief most prongs crossed Or.
Borealis, Barony of. Badge for the Order of the Silverwolf. Azure, in pale two wolf’s heads erased addorsed and conjoined at the neck argent and two swords inverted in saltire Or.
Borealis, Barony of. Badge for the Order of the Silverwolf. Azure, in pale two wolf’s heads erased addorsed and conjoined at the neck argent and two arrows in saltire Or.
Caressa de Marchena. Name change from Caressa the Chased and badge. Sable, on a fess Or a wolf statant gules.
Submitted as Caressa de la Marchena, Marchena is a place name. We have, therefore, dropped the article.
Please instruct the submitter to draw the fess smaller.
Finngall McKetterick. Device. Or, a triskelion of armored human legs vert.
John Dougal MacAndrew. Name and device. Azure, in cross a staff raguly and a staff raguly reversed argent, on a chief Or three annulets gules.
Please inform the submitter that double given names were unknown in period Scotland. An authentic form of the name would be John Dougal or John MacAndrew.
The charge was submitted as a cross raguly but drawn as two staffs.
Sean of Lions Gate. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Or, in pale a horse’s head contourny issuant from a heart voided sable.
This is clear of Suzanna Jewell, Or, on a heart sable a lozenge Or. There is a CD for the number of primary charges and a second for substantially changing the type of the tertiaries on the hearts; clause b of X.4.j.ii applies to different coprimaries when they are the only charges on the field.
This was submitted under the name Sean de la Mare.
Sebastian of Dragon’s Mist. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Azure, a bend sinister and in canton a compass star pierced argent.
After much thought, we decided that piercing is worth a CD when drawn large enough to be equivalent to adding a tertiary charge, as it is done here; i.e. when it is clearly visible and takes up much of the space available to it. Please inform the submitter, however, that a compass star should not be drawn as a mullet of four points saltirewise surmounted by another.
This was submitted under the name Sebastian Sterme.
Adelicia Brabant. Name.
The name is not in conflict with the Adelicia, wife of Henry I, since she is actually known as Adelicia of Louvain. Furthermore, the name of a less important queen of a less important king is not automatically worthy of protection.
Annes Clotilde von Bamburg. Device change. Per bend vert and gules, a frog rampant Or.
Her current device, Lozengy Or and vert, on a pall gules four bezants is released.
Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Badge for the Ministry of Children. Or semy of hands sable.
Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Badge for the Children’s Defender. Or semy of hands sable, on a lozenge gules a broadsword Or.
Geoffrey Sparhauk. Name and device. Argent, six hawk’s heads erased azure armed Or.
Gisele Maria Overton. Device. Per pale vert and purpure, a chamfron Or.
This is clear of Seumas Camshronach an Lochabair, Sable, a chamfron Or enflamed proper. There is a CD for the change to the field, and the enflaming in Seumas’s device is significant enough for the second CD.
Melek of Ancyra. Name and device. Argent, a catamount rampant sable winged gules, wings enflamed proper, a bordure gules.
Murdoc of Wastelands. Name and device. Azure, in pale two lightning bolts fesswise, overall a sword Or.
Submitted as Murdoc of the Wastelands, the group name does not include the article.
Pádraig Ó Duinn. Name and device. Per chevron azure and argent, two eagles displayed Or and an oak tree proper fructed Or.
Sean McConnul Duncan. Device. Argent, a griffin segreant and a chief urdy azure.
Please instruct the submitter to draw fewer and larger divisions in the chief.
Talmon Wilbanks. Name.
Talon of Blackoak. Name and device. Per chevron inverted azure and vert, a chevron inverted between a mullet and three sycamore leaves argent.
Aimée Douglas. Device. Or, semy of hearts, on a bend azure an apple blossom leaved argent.
Alasdair Mac Roibeirt. Device change. Per bend sinister argent and vert, a triquetra and a bordure embattled counterchanged.
His current device, Per saltire argent and vert, two smith’s hammers reversed sable and two massacres argent, is released.
Anastasia Elgiva Orpett. Device. Purpure, in pale a mullet of four points elongated to base Or and two lilies crossed in saltire slipped argent.
Arabella Eleanor Hamilton. Device. Per chevron indented sable and purpure, two natural seahorses Or and a winged sea-unicorn argent winged crined and armed Or.
Bronwen Gwehyddes Anglesey. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Bronwen Gwehyddes y Anglesey, the submitter requested an authentic late 12th century/early 13th century Welsh name. We cannot make this name authentic, as there is no evidence for the use of Bronwen outside of literature until the 19th century (it is registerable, however, because Bronwen has been declared SCA-compatible). Furthermore, Anglesey is the English name for the place, and as she allowed only minor changes, we could not replace the locative with the Welsh equivalent Mon. Lastly, Welsh names rarely used locatives in their names, so a 12th century form, while possible, would be atypical. Instead we have dropped the preposition as there is no evidence that it would be appropriate in either Welsh or English. If the submitter chooses a given name found in her desired time period, a possible authentic form of her name, although atypical due to the use of the place name, would be <given name> Guedes Mon.
Catriona of Twin Moons. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Per pale vert and azure, a thistle and a chief dovetailed argent.
Her armory was submitted under the name Catriona McKenzie of Kintail.
Davina of Silverlake. Name and device. Per pale Or and argent, three lionesses rampant in annulo sable.
Golda ferch Deiniol. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Kedivor Tal ap Cadugon. Name and device (see RETURNS for badge). Argent, a wolf rampant counterermine between three clarions azure.
Submitted as Kedivor Tal mab Cadwugaun, the submitter asked for an authentic Welsh name. Because Cadwugaun is, according to Harpy Herald, an error in Reaney and Wilson, Dictionary of English Surnames and both Kedivor and Tal are suitable for around the 13th and 14th centuries we have replaced the patronymic with a form consistent with the other two elements of his name.
The ermine spots on the large emblazon were misdrawn (actually mispainted), but the ermine spots on the mini-emblazon and the badge were drawn correctly. Therefore we are registering the device, but please inform the submitter to draw the ermine spots as they appear on his badge.
Matheus Macleod. Name and device. Quarterly sable and Or, four wolves rampant counterchanged.
Rosalinda Gertrude Kesselheim. Name and device. Per fess vert and gules, a peacock in its pride, a bordure Or.
Submitted as Rosalinda Francisca Gertrude Kesselheim, the submitter justified the name as a mixture of Spanish and German. In neither language are three given names justified, therefore we dropped the first middle name. This name still has a "weirdness", as Rosalinda has fallen out of use in Germany by the time double given names were in use.
Please instruct the submitter to draw the feathers of the peacock tail more distinctly.
Seamus McDaid. Name.
The submitter should be informed that Seamus is a Gaelic spelling and McDaid is a Scots spelling, and the two forms of spelling were generally not combined in a single name. The name would be more authentic as Seamus MacDaibheid or James McDaid.
Serena O’Neill. Name.
William Xanthos. Name.
Windale, Shire of. Device. Argent, chaussé azure, in pale a laurel wreath vert and an aeolus azure.
Ynez Chaiya Benveniste. Name change from Simone de Condé (see RETURNS for device).
Her current name is released.
Atlantia, Kingdom of. Device change for the Consort of Atlantia. Per pale argent and azure, on a fess wavy cotised counterchanged an escallop erminois, overall a wreath of roses proper.
The current device, Per pale argent and azure, on a fess wavy cotised counterchanged an escallop erminous, overall a wreath of roses proper, is released.
Atlantia, Kingdom of. Transfer of heraldic title Argent Snail Herald to Jaelle of Armida.
Bright Hills, Barony of. Association of badge with order name Award of the Silberberg. (Fieldless) On a mountain of three peaks couped sable, in fess a gauntlet fesswise reversed and a gauntlet fesswise argent.
Carlos Juan Ramiro. Badge. (Fieldless) A zule argent.
Carlos Juan Ramiro. Badge. (Fieldless) An hourglass purpure framed Or.
This does not conflict with Leopold Reinmar von Schönberg, Per bend sinister gules and sable, an hourglass Or; the inside of an hourglass is at least half the charge.
Caterina d’Este da Venezia. Name.
Charles Templar. Name.
Daniello di Martello Carradori. Name and device. Per pale vert and azure, three lozenges one and two Or.
Eleri Vwyn. Name.
Submitted as Eleri Mywn, the byname lenites after a feminine name.
Hans Holzarbeiter. Name.
No one was able to find any actual examples of Holzarbeiter as an occupational surname, but as it follows a standard pattern of occupational names we are giving the submitter the benefit of the doubt. The submitter requested an authentic German name but allowed no changes. Given the lack of evidence for Holzarbeiter we cannot consider this name authentic. It also may not mean what he wants, as the first meaning given for Holzarbeiter was "lumberjack". If the submitter wants to be a woodworker as in carpenter, we recommend that he use Zimmerman; if he wants to be more of a joiner, we recommend Tischmacher.
Hidden Mountain, Barony of. Badge. Sable, a mountain erased voided in chief three clouds one and two argent.
The voided mountain is grandfathered to the barony.
Hidden Mountain, Barony of. Badge for Award of the Sable Mountain. Per chevron argent and sable, three clouds one and two sable.
Hidden Mountain, Barony of. Badge (see RETURNS for award name). Per chevron argent and azure, three clouds one and two azure.
Hidden Mountain, Barony of. Award name Award of the Crimson Mountain and badge. Per chevron argent and gules, three clouds one and two gules.
Hidden Mountain, Barony of. Badge for Order of the Pinnacle of the Mountain. Sable, a mountain erased voided in chief three clouds one and two Or.
The voided mountain is grandfathered to the barony.
Jaelle of Armida. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title Argent Snail Herald.
Julian de Hunteley. Name and device. Vert, on a chevron between three hunting horns reversed Or three roses proper.
Juliana Mowere. Name and device. Per fess bendy argent and azure and vert, in base a branch bendwise sinister Or.
Philip Drzislav. Name and device. Azure, in pale three crescents, a sinister tierce argent.
Submitted as Philip Drǽislav, the submitter requested a name authentic for 13th century Croatia. Since there was no evidence that the hacek was used during this period in Croatian Latin, the documentary language of the time, we have dropped it.
Robert of Doncaster. Name.
Rorik Fredericsson. Device change. Azure, a grey goose volant bendwise wings addorsed proper gorged of a coronet Or.
His current device, Azure, a grey goose volant bendwise, wings elevated and addorsed, proper (Anser anser), is released.
Thorfinn Olafsson. Name.
Amanda O’Kellahan. Name and device. Azure, a horse passant and on a point pointed argent a drop spindle azure.
Antea Francesca da Santa Lucia. Name.
Listed on the LoI as Antèa Francésca da Santa Lucia, the name was originally submitted without the accents. As the accents are used by the source solely as a pronunciation guide, we have restored the original form.
Antonius Falconerius. Name.
Bartholomew Marchant of Studley Green. Name change from Berthold Leverenz.
This was accidentally released in the November 1999 LoAR. When he originally submitted his name he did not indicate it as a name change so the change was omitted. I am taking advantage of the mistake I made last month and making this a name change now instead of handling the name change separately from the correction. His former name, Berthold Leverenz, is released.
Beatrice Caterina Fontanella. Device change. Per saltire argent and azure, an estoile within a bordure counterchanged.
Her current device, Purpure, semy of hawk’s bells Or, a ferret passant argent, is released.
Charles Laighléis. Name.
The submitter should be informed that mixing English and Gaelic spellings in a single name was vanishingly rare in period. The name would be considerably more authentic as a fully Gaelic Tairdelbach Laighléis (or with some other Gaelic name that has been identified with Charles) or fully Anglicized Charles Lawless.
Ciar inghean ui Mhaoildeirg. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Ciar ni ui Mhaoildeirg, ni ui is incorrect, as ni is a modern contraction of inghean ui. We have thus corrected the grammar.
Cyneburh æt Suðhamtune. Name change from Brigit Tóibín.
Listed on the letter of intent Cynburh æt Suðhamtun, the forms had Cyneburh, which is also the documented form. The locative needs to be in the dative case, so we corrected the grammar.
The submitter’s current name is released.
Deredere inghean Chananaich. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Deirdre inghean Chananaich of Skye, the submitter requested an authentic pre-12 century Scottish Gaelic name. Therefore, we have substituted an attested 12th century form of the given name and dropped the English locative.
Doria Tecla. Name change from Thecla Doria of Andritsaena.
Her current name is released.
Elaine of Elswick. Device change. Per chevron per pale azure and purpure and plummety argent and sable, two stags springing respectant and in chief a crescent argent.
Eochaidh MacPheadarain. Name and device. Per bend Or and gules, a lymphad sable and a mermaid Or.
Faoiltighearna ní Dhuinn. Device. Vert, a dragonfly and on a chief Or three pomegranates gules slipped and leaved vert.
Hawken of the Greenbriar. Device change. Per bend sinister sable and purpure, a bend sinister gules fimbriated between a tower and an eagle argent.
His current device, Per bend sinister sable and purpure, a bend sinister gules fimbriated between a tower and a hawk displayed, wings inverted, argent, is retained as a badge. The current device follows the instructions given by Laurel in May 1999 for the difference between a hawk and an eagle.
Hob Calvin. Name.
The allusion to the cartoon Calvin and Hobbes is not overt enough to make this name unregisterable.
Jordana Aveline of Erroll. Name and device. Per bend purpure and vert, a bend between eight fleurs-de-lys Or.
Kathleen Mahony of Cork. Name and device. Vert, a griffin passant argent maintaining a harp Or between three Celtic crosses argent.
Please ask the submitter to draw the griffin with lion’s legs, which have large tufty feet and tufts on the back of the legs.
Katrín Brjánsdóttir. Name.
Lachlan Erskine of Cromarty. Name change from Lachlan Llewelyn.
His current name is released.
Maelduin Mac Corby. Name.
Runa Ragnarsdottir. Badge. (Fieldless) On a maple leaf vert a decrescent Or.
This is clear of Siobhan O’Riordain, On an elm leaf vert, an apple Or, and Stevyn of Beinn nam faoghla, On a blackthorn leaf vert an increscent argent. There is a CD between a maple leaf and single-lobed leaves such as elm leaves and blackthorn leaves.
Scaith ingen Eachduinn. Name and device. Sable, on a pale between two card piques argent a winged catamount sejant erect guardant wings elevated and addorsed vert.
Submitted as Scaith inghean Eachdonn, the patronymic needs to be put in its genitive form. As she also asked for an 11th-12th century form, we used the older form of the patronymic.
Seanach an tSeahachaidhe. Name change from Seanach Ó hAodha and device change. Sable, two stags attires Or issuant from between the horns of a crescent argent.
His current name and device, Or, a crescent and on a chief triangular sable a massacre Or, are released.
Siobhán of Starkhafn. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Per saltire gules and sable, two swords in saltire between four Celtic crosses bases to center argent.
In the large emblazon, the swords were not quite throughout. Please instruct the submitter, however, to draw the swords a bit smaller.
Submitted under the name Siobhán Faolscatha.
Tycho Kepler. Name and device. Azure, a swan contourny argent and in chief three wheels Or.
The name is not in conflict with either Tycho Brahe or Johannes Kepler, and because the references are to period persons, this is not obtrusively modern.
Valerianus Magnus. Device. Per bend rayonny azure and Or.
Havre des Glaces, Shire of. Device. Azure, a lymphad Or charged on the sail with a laurel wreath vert, in chief 3 fleurs-de-lys argent and in base a ford proper.
This was returned in October 1999, for an unsuitable petition. A new petition was promptly forwarded so we are registering it now. Although normally such administrative problems require a new submission, we are being generous so that the group can become a barony in January as scheduled.
Eoghann MacAindreis. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Saint Crispin, College of. Name.
Submitted as St. Crispin, we do not register scribal abbreviations.
Uberto Renaldi. Device change. Gules, three bells Or, a chief paly azure and Or.
His current device, Azure, an annulet Or, on a chief invected argent, a fleur-de-lys gules, is released.
Adriana of Riverhold. Name.
Anna Mactaggart. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Catrina of the Lochs. Name change from holding name Catrina of the Outlands.
Connor Graham and Caoilte Caitchairn. Household name Rath Con Móir and badge. Per chevron gules and vert, in pale a triskele argent and a triskele Or.
Duncan Alastair MacRae. Name.
Submitted as Duncan Alasdair MacRae, the name had two wierdnesses: mixing the Gaelic and English spellings, and using a double given name in Scots. Therefore, we have Anglicized the entire name.
Eirik Bloodaxe Thordarson. Name.
Isaac ben Joseph. Name.
Johanna bat Ephraim ben Rialah. Name change from Johanna of Mercia.
Her current name is released.
Mariana de Santillana. Device. Per bend pean and argent, a bend bevilled azure between an increscent argent and a spider inverted in base sable.
Matthias Fledermus. Device. Azure, in chief a reremouse, a bordure embattled argent.
Sarah Archer of Salisbury. Name and device. Azure, a threaded needle bendwise sinister, on a bordure wavy Or in chief an arrow fesswise gules.
Submitted as Sara Archer of Salisbury, the forms had Sarah. Therefore, we have restored the name to the submitter’s desired form.
Arabella Kathryn Matthew. Device. Argent, a horse passant contourny sable and a base wavy purpure.
Catarina Salvatore Rocca. Name and device. Per chevon inverted azure and argent, on a plate a triangle throughout sable.
Constance Morley. Device. Per fess wavy argent and azure, a decrescent and a crab tergiant counterchanged.
Edmund Morley. Device. Per fess argent and azure, in fess two mascles interlaced counterchanged.
Erik Adler. Name and device. Or, three dragons passant gules, on a chief sable an eagle displayed argent.
Submitted as Erik Alder, the submitter wanted a byname meaning "eagle". We thus changed the byname to provide the desired meaning.
Ingrede Falkenberg. Name and device. Purpure, a Thor’s hammer and on a chief embattled argent three roses slipped and leaved proper.
Jarvis of Hakesleah. Name and device. Purpure, three hakes haurient Or.
Nell of Ambrewood. Name.
Rebecca Rose. Blazon change. Quarterly azure and argent, four cat’s pawprints counterchanged argent and sable.
Rebecca Silver. Device change. Chevronelly azure and argent.
Her current device, Argent, a sexfoil and on a chief azure a greyhound courant argent, is released.
Roelandt Storme van Raedt. Name and device. Per chevron Or and azure, an eagle displayed counterchanged, on a chief gules three Maltese crosses argent.
Roland Campion. Device. Azure, an increscent argent and a ford proper.
Rowan of Hakesleah. Name and device. Gules, an orle of escallops Or.
Rowan is SCA compatible.
Sarra atte Elmes. Name change from Serrana Isabella de León y Beltrán.
Her current name is released.
Solange de la Forteresse. Name.
Submitted as Solange de la Forteress, the byname was changed to a period spelling.
Susan of Wight. Reblazon of device. Or, a castle sable, on a chief gules three compass stars elongated to base Or, and on a base gules a compass star elongated to base Or.
The original blazon listed the center strip as a fess charged with a castle. Since it comprises more than half the field, it is far too large to be a charged ordinary.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK
Borealis, Barony of. Badge. Azure, in pale two wolf’s heads erased addorsed and conjoined at the neck argent and two rapiers inverted in saltire Or.
This is being returned for conflict with the badge for the Order of the Silverwolf, Azure, in pale two wolf’s heads erased addorsed and conjoined at the neck argent and two swords inverted in saltire Or, registered to Borealis in this letter. We do not register identical items, even to the same submitter. Blazon A is considered identical to blazon B if, given blazon A and B, you could draw them identically. Therefore only one of those two blazons can be registered. As it is reasonable to draw charges blazoned as swords as rapiers, we are only registering the more general badge; however, that badge can be drawn with rapiers as needed.
Borealis, Barony of. Order Name Order of the Wolf’s Paw.
The use of the apostrophe is post period. Since they allow no changes, this order name must be returned.
James the Obscure. Badge. (Fieldless) A badger statant contourny atop an open scroll fesswise argent.
The name was returned in May 1999 for lack of paperwork. Since we cannot tell whether the submitter will accept a holding name, this badge must be returned.
Sean de la Mare. Name.
Conflict with the registered names Sean Dalamara and Jeanne de la Mare. His armory is registered under the holding name Sean of Lions Gate
Sebastian Sterne. Name.
Conflict with the registered name Sebastian Sturme; they are too similar in appearance. His armory was registered under the name Sebastian of Dragon’s Mist.
Veraquilon, Canton of. Branch name and device. Azure in pale two boreae addorsed and conjoined argent and a laurel wreath Or.
The name as supposed to mean True North Wind, however, this is not a reasonable placename in either English or Latin. Metron Ariston suggests the name Aquilonia Nova, based on the classical town Aquilonia. The device must be returned as we cannot form holding names for groups.
Bronwen Gwehyddes Angelsey. Device. Vert, three chevronels braced, in chief in pale a unicorn’s head couped argent.
The head was not a unicorn’s head, but rather a unicornate horse’s head, as it lacked a beard. Unicornate horses have not been registerable for some time because they blur the distinction between horses and unicorns.
Catriona McKenzie of Kintail. Name.
As one of the seats of the McKenzies was Kintail, by long standing precedent, using McKenzie of Kintail is presumptuous. Catriona did not allow major changes, therefore we must return the name. Her armory was registered under the holding name Catriona of Twin Moons.
Please inform the submitter that mixing a Gaelic spelling of her first name with an Anglicized (and masculine) form of her byname is at best extremely unusual. A fully Scots form of her given name, such as Catrina or Katerin, would be considerably more authentic. A fully Scots Gaelic form of her name would use a literal patronymic and not a clan name.
Golda ferch Deiniol. Device. Per chevron vert and Or, two suns in their splendor Or.
Conflict with Valeria Valkenaer, Per pale gules and sable, in chief two suns Or. There is only a single CD for the field.
Kedivor Tal mab Cadwugaun. Badge. Erminois, a sun within a bordure gules.
Conflict with Mitchell MacBain, Gyronny sable and argent, a compass star within a bordure gules. No difference is given between a compass star and a sun, therefore there is only a single CD for the field.
Komask Undan of the Silver Stallion. Name and device. Per bend sinister "bevilled" gules and azure, a horse’s head couped contourny argent charged with a mullet of four points sable and a sword bendwise sinister proper.
Komask Undan was submitted as meaning "to escape". No documentation was given to show that given names could be derived from such words. The submitter may be interested in the Norse given name Kormákr. If, however, he wants to use it with of the Silver Stallion (which is grandfathered to him through his wife Leila Angwin of the Silver Stallion), he would be best to use a more Anglicized form such as Kormac.
The line of division was not bevilled as described in the cover letter to the August 1992 LoAR. It is thus returned pending documentation for this line of division. The submitter should be informed that period examples of fields such as per bend bevilled were generally not accompanied by other charges.
Ynez Chaiya Benveniste. Device. Purpure, two dolphins embowed reguardant in annulo argent, on a chief embattled Or three pomegranates one and two slipped and leaved vert seeded gules.
The dolphins are partially heraldic dolphins and partially natural dolphins. While there is not a CD between them, we do blazon the distinction and request that these be redrawn as one or the other dolphins (preferably the attested heraldic dolphins). Furthermore the arrangement of the pomegranates was highly unusual and we are not certain if the blazon accurately describes the position. Please recommend that the submitter place the pomegranates in fess in future submissions.
Hidden Mountain, Barony of. Award name Award of the Indigo Mountain.
Indigo was not used as an adjective in period, nor was it used as a color until 1622.
Katharine Elyzabeth of Südentür. Name.
The group name Südentür was returned in September 1999, therefore it is equally unacceptable here. Since she will not allow changes, this must be returned.
Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme. Device change. Azure, on a chief embattled argent a dragon couchant azure, winged sable gorged of a coronet Or. For augmentation, the dragon maintaining between its forefeet an escutcheon azure charged with four crescents conjoined in saltire, horns outward argent.
Withdrawn by the submitter.
Ciar inghean ui Mhaoildeirg. Device. Per chevron throughout argent and vert, a stag statant at gaze argent.
Conflict with Gianni Arcieri, Per fess azure and bendy sable and argent, a stag at gaze argent. There is a single CD for the changes to the field.
Culloch MacUalraig. Name.
The documentation for Culloch did not show that it was a given name. Not all names used after mac in Irish or Scottish Gaelic are given names. In this case Culloch appears to be a descriptive byname. Bordure Herald suggests the name Cellach, which is a given name dated in Black, Surnames of Scotland, to 937.
Deredere inghean Chananaich. Device. Per chevron argent and vert, two thistles crossed in saltire inverted proper and an hourglass argent framed Or.
The thistles must be distorted to the point of unrecognizability to get them to cross in saltire.
Éblenn ingen meic an Úcaire. Name.
No evidence was given showing that Éblenn was ever a name used by humans in period. The submitter may wish to consider the attested name Eibhlin.
Gertraud von Wuerzburg. Badge. Quarterly argent and vert, a cross bottony gules.
Conflict with William de Rouen, Per pale argent and Or, a cross crosslet fitchy gules. There is a CD for the field, but by Laurel precedent, there is not a CD between a cross crosslet fitchy and a cross bottony.
Seaan Dowe. Name.
This conflicts with John Doe, which is a well known legal term for an unidentified male.
Siobhán Faolscatha. Name.
No evidence was given, nor could any be found, to justify a byname meaning "wolf phantom". Bynames in Irish Gaelic were generally literal, as in F.ind, "fair", or Gabulfota, "long-legged."
Her device was registered under the name Siobhán of Starkhafn
Zhivana Anastasiia Svemirovna. Household name House of the Amber Moon.
While the submitter did give evidence that amber was used as a color towards the end of our period (although only in a poem), she did not give any evidence showing that <color> Moon is a reasonable household name, i.e., a name consistent with some period organized group of people.
Eoghann MacAindreis. Device. Vert, a pall inverted between three yew trees eradicated argent.
Conflict with Eric von Charlottenburg, Vert, a pall inverted between three mullets of four points argent. There is only one CD for the change in type to the secondaries.
Anna Mactaggart. Device. Per bend sinister argent and gules, a dragon sejant erect and a winged maiden counterchanged.
The maiden is not in any blazonable posture.
Colin McKenna. Device. Vert, a tree blasted and eradicated argent surmounted by a lion’s face Or.
The lion is barely overall, which has long been a reason for return. It also conflicts with Ioseph of Locksley, the Rhymer, Vert, a tree eradicated argent. There is only one CD for the addition of the overall charge.
Leif Thorisson. Name.
Conflict with the registered name Leif Thoruson.
Rosamond de Preston. Device. Gules, a tower and on a chief argent three cinquefoils gules.
Conflict with Siana of Castletown Bearhaven, Gules, a bear Or statant atop a tower issuant from base and on a chief argent, three roses purpure, barbed and seeded proper. There is a CD for the number of primary charges, but none for the tertiary charges, since the only difference is a change in color.
Ulrich Krieger. Device. Barry and per chevron throughout sable and Or.
Conflict with Gonzaga (important non-SCA arms), Barry Or and sable and Barry Goldsson, Barry of six Or and sable. There is only a single CD for change of half the field.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN PENDED UNTIL THE APRIL 2000 LAUREL MEETING
Lupus of Arundel. Household name Hûs Wælsinges.
Metron Ariston called this in conflict with Wælsinges from the Beowulf saga and with the mythic line Volsunga. The conflicts are valid, but we are pending this to April 1999 and are asking the College whether either conflict is important enough to protect.
Eleanor d’Aubrécicourt. Device. Per pale vert and azure, a roundel and a chief argent.
The blazon appeared on the LoI as Per pale azure and vert, a roundel and a chief argent, reversing the colors of the field.
