THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN REGISTERED:

* ĆTHELMEARC acceptances (to returns)

* Malcolm Duncan MacEoghainn. Alternate name Nikolai Malkhovich Vasiliev.

The submitter might be interested to know that an alternate transliteration of Vasiliev is Vasil'ev. If he is interested in this transliteration, he may make a request for reconsideration.

* AN TIR acceptances (to returns)

* Caterina da Savona. Badge. (Fieldless) A raven contourny regardant sable perched upon a rake fesswise reversed Or.

* Caterine Rose d'Evreux. Badge. (Fieldless) A fleur-de-lis gules within and conjoined to a mascle sable.

* Caterine Rose d'Evreux. Badge (see RETURNS for other badge). (Fieldless) A rose proper within and conjoined to an annulet sable.

* Clydwyn Mynydd Du. Name and device. Per pale vert and sable, a tree blasted and eradicated and on a chief argent three oak leaves vert.

The spelling Clydwyn is a reasonable variant spelling of the attested Welsh name Clytwin, dated to the 14th century in "Bonedd Gwyr y Gogledd" (Oxford Jesus College MS. 20, p. 33r, http://www.rhyddiaithganoloesol.caerdydd.ac.uk/en/ms-page.php?ms=Jesus20&page=33r). We thank Lillia Crampette and Nest Crane for their work on this submission.

The submitter requested authenticity for Wales in the 15th century. This name does not meet that request. While the spelling of the given name is plausible, at this time we do not have documentary evidence of it being used in Wales in the 15th century. If the submitter is interested in the name Clytwin Mynydd Du, they may make a request for reconsideration.

* Damiana Romana. Name and device. Quarterly azure and sable, a wolf's head cabossed argent.

Nice 15th-16th century Roman name!

* Diterich Mathias Brandt. Badge. (Fieldless) A cross miller Or within and conjoined to a mascle sable.

* Diterich Mathias Brandt. Badge. (Fieldless) A cross miller sable, overall in saltire an arrow inverted and a sword Or.

* Gaius Veturius Scaevola. Name change from Conchobar mac Eoin.

Submitted as Gaius Veturius Skaevola, the cognomen is spelled Scaevola. No evidence was provided that this cognomen was ever spelled with a k instead of a c. We have therefore corrected the spelling for registration.

The submitter's previous name, Conchobar mac Eoin, is retained as an alternate.

* Giata Magdalena Alberti. Heraldic will.

Upon submitter's death, control of the following items is to be transferred to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms:

The submitter listed other items that are not currently registered so were excluded from the above list.

* Gracia Abrabanel. Name change from Kat Ginere.

The submitter's previous name, Kat Ginere, is retained as an alternate.

* 'Izza al-Dimashqiyya. Badge. (Fieldless) In saltire a sword inverted argent and a peacock feather azure.

* M{a-}lik ibn Q{a-}rin ibn al-M{a-}rid{i-} ibn Jinn{i-} al-'Abd{a-}r{i-} al-Shayban{i-}. Name change from Basil Dragonstrike and badge. Argent semy of flames proper, a lion contourny gules.

The submitter's previous name, Basil Dragonstrike, is retained as an alternate.

* M{a-}lik ibn Q{a-}rin ibn al-M{a-}rid{i-} ibn Jinn{i-} al-'Abd{a-}r{i-} al-Shayban{i-}. Release of alternate name M{a-}lik ibn {K.}{a-}rin ibn al-M{a-}rid{i-} ibn {Dj_}inn{i-} al-'Abd{a-}r{i-} al-{Sh_}ayb{a-}n{i-}.

* M{a-}lik ibn Q{a-}rin ibn al-M{a-}rid{i-} ibn Jinn{i-} al-'Abd{a-}r{i-} al-Shayban{i-}. Badge. Argent semy of flames proper.

Nice badge!

* Pompeia Rufina. Name change from Fina MacGregor of Silverhart and badge. (Fieldless) A rabbit rampant purpure maintaining a spoon argent.

Nice Imperial Roman name!

The submitter might be interested to know that the form Pompeia Rufa would be more appropriate for a woman from the Roman Republic. If she is interested in this form, she may make a request for reconsideration.

The submitter's previous name, Fina MacGregor of Silverhart, is retained as an alternate.

* ANSTEORRA acceptances (to returns)

* Edward of Vindheim. Name.

Vindheim is the registered name of an SCA branch.

* Stargate, Barony of. Badge for Current and former territorial barons and baronesses of Stargate. (Fieldless) A tower per bend argent and sable charged in chief with a mullet of three greater and six lesser points sable.

In July 2018 we wrote that:

I can do no better than to quote my predecessor, who in the February 2008 Cover Letter, noted in part: "No one disputes the right of Baronies to register badges, or to reserve them for specific purposes or groups. Registering a badge for former territorial Barons and Baronesses is legal. However, we find we cannot encourage it, and would hope that other Kingdoms do not follow Caid's lead in this."

The use of a mullet of three greater and six lesser points is allowed through the existing registration allowance.

Current and former territorial barons and baronesses of Stargate is a generic identifier.

(to Ansteorra acceptances) (to Ansteorra returns)


* ARTEMISIA acceptances (to returns)

* Anika Farmađr. Name.

This name combines a Russian given name with an Old West Norse name from Iceland, an acceptable lingual mix per SENA Appendix C.

The submitter might be interested to know that the Finnish spelling Anicha is dated to the 14th century. If they are interested in the name Anicha Farmađr, they may make a request for reconsideration.

* Ástríđr Skáldadóttir. Name.

Submitted as Ástríđr Skáldasdóttir, a timely correction was issued changing the byname to Skáldadóttir. We are happy to make this change for registration.

* Eduard Litiljohne. Device. Argent, a chevron azure between a grey iron woodsman's axe hafted fesswise reversed proper and an apple gules slipped and leaved vert.

As an axe's tincture is taken from its blade, we have therefore asked Morsulus to note that the axe is treated as sable for conflict purposes.

* Ţóra Biarnardóttir. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Submitted as ţóra Biarnardóttir, a timely correction was issued to capitalize the given name. We have made this correction for registration.

The submitter requested authenticity for 13th century Norse. This name meets that request, as it is authentic for the 9th-15th centuries in Iceland and Norway.

(to Artemisia acceptances) (to Artemisia returns)


* ATENVELDT acceptances (to returns) (to pends)

* Aoife inghean Éamoinn. Name.

* Jósep á Eikey. Device change. Per pale sable and gules, a raven displayed counterchanged argent and sable, and a bordure denticulada argent.

The submitter's previous device, Sable, a pale gules fimbriated and in canton an eagle argent, is retained as a badge

Nice device!

* Kateryn Lyst. Device. Sable estencely argent, a lynx rampant gardant Or, a gore argent.

* Luca Ranieri. Name and device. Argent, a fess azure, overall in saltire a serpent glissant gules and a rapier sable.

The submitter requested authenticity for Italy. This name meets that request, as it is authentic for Pisa in the 15th and 16th centuries.

(to Atenveldt acceptances) (to Atenveldt returns) (to Atenveldt pends)


* AVACAL acceptances (to returns)

* Jórunn Hestsskáld. Name (see RETURNS for device).

(to Avacal acceptances) (to Avacal returns)


* CAID acceptances (to returns) (to pends)

* Gershom ibn Zabara. Reblazon of device. Per bend embattled azure and gules, a star of David argent and an armillary sphere Or.

Blazoned when registered in August 1979 as Per bend embattled azure and gules, a Mogan David argent, and an armillary sphere Or, the first charge was misspelled. We've reblazoned it as the more familiar star of David.

* Ćsa {O,}lfúss. Name and device. Argent goutty de sang, a goblet purpure.

Nice 9th-11th century Old Norse name from Iceland!

* Drífa Reginleifardóttir. Name.

Nice 9th-11th century Old Norse name from Iceland!

* Dýrfinna Valsdóttir. Blanket permission to conflict with device (see PENDS for device change and other blanket permission to conflict). Or, three falcons purpure.

The submitter grants permission to conflict for any armory that is a countable step from their registered armory, Or, three falcons purpure.

* Estrilda of Caid. Name.

Caid is the registered name of an SCA branch.

* Orlaith inghean Iason. Name.

* Sigríđr ţunnkárr Hróđmundardóttir. Name.

Appearing on the Letter of Intent as Sigriđr ţunnkárr Hróđmundardóttir, the attested form of the given name is Sigríđr. This is the spelling that appears on the submissions form. As diacritical markings must be used consistently in Old Norse names, we have restored the submitted spelling for registration.

* Starkhafn, Barony of. Order name Order of Bearer of the Flame of Starkhafn.

This order name uses the construction 'saint's name + heraldic charge + locative'.

* Starkhafn, Barony of. Order name Order of Ranger of the Flame of Starkhafn and badge. Per bend azure and sable, in saltire an arrow and an axe argent and in base a flame proper.

This order name uses the construction 'saint's name + heraldic charge + locative'.

* Starkhafn, Barony of. Order name Order of the Defenders of the Flame at Starkhafn and badge. Per chevron azure and argent, a six-sided coffin palewise sable charged in chief with a flame proper.

Submitted as Order of the Defenders of the Flame of Starkhafn, this order name was not constructed correctly. Both of the Flame and of Starkhafn are locatives in this construction. We have limited examples of order names that use double locatives; the only examples are found in references to the Order of the Star (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/Courtly_Orders_and_Awards.html). In these examples, the double locative is formed with the construction 'of X at Y', where X is a localized element such as a manor house or tavern and Y is a larger region such as a city or country. For this submission, it creates the appearance of a place called Inn of the Flame within the larger entity Barony of Starkhafn. In turn, the resulting compound locative of the Flame at Starkhafn removes any unmistakable reference to the registered branch Barony of the Flame. We have therefore changed this name to Order of the Defenders of the Flame at Starkhafn in order to register it.

The use of a six-sided coffin in this design is allowed per the Existing Registration Allowance.

* Starkhafn, Barony of. Order name Order of the Eldr ok Hjarta of Starkhafn.

The Barony has several order names previously registered using the Old Icelandic language. Therefore, they may use the Existing Registration Allowance for this order name construction.

* Starkhafn, Barony of. Order name Order of the Fj{o,}đr of Starkhafn.

Submitted as Order of the Fj{o:}đr of Starkhafn, the element fj{o,}đr was not spelled correctly. Zoega and Cleasby-Vigfusson were limited by the printing type of their day and had to use o-umlaut, {o:}, to represent o-ogonek, {o,}. We have therefore corrected the spelling to use the o-ogonek for registration.

The Barony has several order names previously registered using the Old Icelandic language. Therefore, they may use the Existing Registration Allowance for this order name construction.

* Starkhafn, Barony of. Order name Order of the Nightshade of Starkhafn.

(to Caid acceptances) (to Caid returns) (to Caid pends)


* CALONTIR acceptances (to returns)

* Celeste Reynart. Device. Gules, a fox's head cabossed argent maintaining a coin purse Or, a bordure argent.

This device was pended on the April 2022 LoAR to improve identifiability of the coin purse. Quarterstaff worked with the submitter to address the issue.

* Eydís ingen Broccáin. Name and device. Per chevron gules and sable, a pithon erect and a chief embattled argent.

This name combines an Old West Norse given name with an Irish Gaelic byname, an acceptable lingual mix per SENA Appendix C.

* {O-}tomo no Yukime. Device change. Sable, a unicorn argent and in chief a rainbow banded Or, gules, azure and argent, clouded argent.

While this rainbow can be blazoned as "proper," the submitter prefers this specific order of the bands so we have not changed the blazon.

The submitter's previous device, Vert, a winged warhammer bendwise sinister argent and a bordure indented Or, is retained as a badge.

(to Calontir acceptances) (to Calontir returns)


* DRACHENWALD acceptances (to returns)

* Estridh Stighsdottir. Name.

Nice Swedish name circa 1400!

* Magdelena Grace Vane. Household name Domus Leporis and badge. (Fieldless) Five rabbits courant in annulo joined at the feet argent.

(to Drachenwald acceptances) (to Drachenwald returns)


* EALDORMERE acceptances (to returns)

* Cináed Ua Donnchada. Badge. (Fieldless) On a human footprint gules a fret argent.

There is a step from core practice for the use of a human footprint.

* Flóki Vagnsson. Name.

Nice 9th-11th century Old Norse name from Iceland!

(to Ealdormere acceptances) (to Ealdormere returns)


* EAST acceptances (to returns)

* Anna Maria Coelho. Name and device. Sable mullety Or, on a plate a hare rampant attired sable.

Nice 16th century Portuguese name!

* Anrrique Sandalio Corvo. Name and device. Per fess indented sable and argent, a comet bendwise sinister inverted Or and a winged wolf couchant contourny regardant gules.

* Anrrique Sandalio Corvo. Badge. Or, three reremice in pall inverted heads to center sable.

* Brokenbridge, Canton of. Badge for populace. (Fieldless) A coney rampant vert.

Nice badge!

* Danr Grímsson. Device. Quarterly sable and argent, a badger rampant Or marked sable.

Nice device!

* Danr Grímsson. Badge. (Fieldless) A badger's head erased within and conjoined to an annulet Or.

* Elisabetta Lucia Portinari. Device change. Gules, an owl and on a chief argent a rose proper between two arches sable.

The submitter's previous device, Gules, a rose and on a chief invected argent three arches sable, is released.

* Elisabetta Lucia Portinari. Badge. (Fieldless) On an owl argent maintaining in its beak a rose fesswise slipped and leaved proper, an arch sable.

* Elisabetta Lucia Portinari. Badge change. (Fieldless) Within and conjoined to an arch sable a rose proper.

The submitter's previous badge, (Fieldless) A rose argent within and conjoined to an arch sable, is released.

* Elyas Woderose Henteloue. Name and device. Per bend gules and Or, a wolf rampant maintaining a needle argent all within an orle of thorn vine vert.

Nice 14th century English name!

* Saffke Fischer. Name and device. Azure, two bears combatant and on a chief argent a seeblatt azure.

Nice 15th century German name!

* Tola knýtir. Badge. Azure, three wolf's teeth issuant from sinister argent and a demi-sun issuant from chief Or.

This badge was pended on the February 2022 LoAR to allow discussion about SENA Appendix J's applicability. That decision appeared on the June 2022 LoAR and allows us to accept this badge.

* Viviana Silvani. Device. Per bend sinister embattled argent and azure, a dragon passant contourny azure and a needle bendwise sinister Or.

(to East acceptances) (to East returns)


* GLEANN ABHANN acceptances (to returns)

* Motan the Mongol. Device. Sable, a mullet of twelve points voided between twelve monkeys rampant contourny in annulo Or.

Mullets of twelve points are not too complex to void. One long-standing rule of thumb involves the consideration of whether a particular charge could be reduced in size yet still reasonably conform to the outline, and this holds true for mullets generally (though not for estoiles). The question of whether any particular mullet's arms are long enough that voiding leads to excessively thin regions remains decideable on a case by case basis. While more likely with mullets of a high number of points it is an issue that could be raised with mullets of five points or -- it is worth noting -- roundels.

(to Gleann Abhann acceptances) (to Gleann Abhann returns)


* LOCHAC acceptances (to returns)

* Adosinda de Rosales. Device. Azure, on a lozenge between in bend sinister two wolf's heads cabossed argent a rose slipped and leaved azure.

This device was pended on the February 2022 LoAR while we discussed whether charged lozenges should be considered a display of independent armory. We considered that lozenges charged with single charges are not thus considered, and therefore this device does not need to be considered against the armory of Alyanora of Vinca, Argent, a periwinkle [Vinca minor] proper.

* Adrienne Furet. Blanket permission to conflict with badge. (Fieldless) A ferret passant sable.

Adrienne grants permission to any future submitter to register armory that is not identical to their badge. For fieldless armory this means at least a blazonable difference.

* Declan of Drogheda. Blanket permission to conflict with device. Argent, a phrygian cap purpure.

Declan grants permission to any future submitter to register armory that is not identical to their device.

* Eiríkr parđi. Name and device. Per bend sinister sable and Or, a sea-leopard counterchanged.

Nice device!

* Fáelán Snorrason Uí Choilein. Device change. Argent, a raven rising sable, on a bordure parted bordurewise gules and sable an orle argent.

The submitter's previous device, Azure, on a bend between a dragon and a wolf rampant argent, three triquetras palewise each braced with an annulet vert, is released.

* Fáelán Snorrason Uí Choilein. Badge. (Fieldless) A raven rising sable within and conjoined to an annulet gules.

* Isabella Caterina di Massi. Name.

The submitter requested authenticity for Italian. This name meets this request, as it is authentic for circa 1600 in Sicily.

* Isolda Deye. Device. Per chevron ployé purpure and ermine, two squirrels respectant argent.

Artist's note: Period armory typically had no more than half as many ermine spots as seen here.

(to Lochac acceptances) (to Lochac returns)


* MERIDIES acceptances (to returns)

* Meridies, Kingdom of. Order name Order of Pilgrims Star and badge association. (Fieldless) On an escallop sable a mullet argent.

* Meridies, Kingdom of. Removal of badge association for populace. Sable, a mullet within a saltire voided argent.

Per the wishes of the Kingdom of Meridies, this badge is considered retired and barred from use. We request Morsulus to make a suitable note in the O&A.

* Raven Attwoode. Name and device. Quarterly per fess embattled argent and azure, in bend a raven contourny and a domestic cat sejant sable.

Nice 13th century English name!

* Wenyeva atte grene. Badge. (Fieldless) A ladder vert.

Nice badge!

(to Meridies acceptances) (to Meridies returns)


* MIDDLE acceptances (to returns)

* Alaster Finlay MacRae. Name.

Submitted as Alaster MacRae, the name in this form presumes a relationship with the registered Duncan Alastair MacRae and is therefore a conflict via SENA PN3D. The submitter opted to add the attested Scots given name Finlay to remove the appearance of presumption, and we are happy to make this change for registration.

* Catalina Mellini. Name and device. Per fess azure and vert, a rabbit contourny erminois, in sinister chief a moon in her plenitude argent.

The given name Catalina was documented as an Italian given name in "Italian Renaissance Women's Names" by Rhian Lyth of Blackmoor Vale. We remind heralds and submitters alike that as of January 2021, this source is not acceptable as sole documentation for a given name. [July 2020 CL] Thankfully, Juliana Siren was able to find this spelling in Il decamerone di Giovanni Boccaccio, published in 1551 and available on Google Books at https://www.google.com/books/edition/Il_decamerone_di_Giovanni_Boccaccio/aVoiRQPlp-4C?gbpv=0. Therefore, we can consider this a wholly Italian name.

The submitter might be interested to know that the given name Catherine is more commonly found in Italy as Catarina. If she is interested in the name Catarina Mellini, she may make a request for reconsideration.

Artist's note: Fewer, larger ermine spots would improve their identifiability.

* Reinhardt mit dem Bart. Badge. Gules, in pale a rose and a tower argent.

This badge was pended on the April 2022 LoAR to make the rose and tower clearly co-primary. Quarterstaff provided new artwork which was accepted by the submitter.

(to Middle acceptances) (to Middle returns)


* NORTHSHIELD acceptances (to returns)

None.

(to Northshield acceptances) (to Northshield returns)


* OUTLANDS acceptances (to returns)

* Alrekr Stefansson. Device. Per pale vert and sable, a bear rampant Or.

Nice device!

* Bartolome Gregorio de Castilla. Device. Argent, on a cross gules between in base two armored arms fesswise embowed each maintaining a sword sable, in chief a tower argent.

* Ealusaid inghean Mhaoil Choluim. Alternate name Ealusaid aighearach inghean Mhaoil Choluim.

The submitter requested authenticity for 15th century Scottish Gaelic. This name does not meet this request. We do not currently have evidence of the byname aighearach dated that early.

* Kára sterka. Name and device. Per pale sable and gules, two wolves combatant, in chief three triangles inverted conjoined two and one argent.

The given name Kára was documented as a feminine given name from "The Old Norse Name" by Geirr Bassi. Further research shows that the version of this name used by ordinary humans is not actually a feminine given name at all, but the genitive (possessive) case of the masculine given name Kári. The single instance of a feminine Kára was the name of a mythological valkyrie in the saga it is found in, and it therefore may not be used as proof of everyday humans using this name. As this submitter used this documentation in good faith, we are registering this name as submitted. See the Cover Letter for further information.

* Ótama drengjamóđir. Name and device. Per pale vert and azure, a fisher marten passant argent between five sets of three annulets interlaced two and one Or.

This is the defining instance of the fisher marten, commonly known today as the fisher, a widely-distributed North American relative of the marten, hunted by people of the First Nations as reported by Emanuel van Meteren (d1612) following Henry Hudson's second voyage: "The Indians had an abundance of provisions, skins and furs, of martens and foxes."

The use of "fisher" in reference to this animal dates to the late 18th century per the OED, deriving from various terms such as "fitchew", "fycheau", and so forth used for the European polecat. Not wishing to confuse this animal with its European cousins, nor with humans whether in the business of food or religion, and noting that this animal is also known as tha cho in Chippewayan ("big marten"), we choose to refer to this as the "fisher marten".

The fisher marten will conflict with all other weasels, martens, and similar beasts.

There is not a step from core practice for the use of a fisher marten.

* Solveig Stephenson. Device. Per bend gules and vert, a sun and a ram's head couped argent.

* Steinn ulfr. Name.

The submitter requested authenticity for 8th-12th C Scandinavian. This name does not meet this request. The byname úlfr follows a period pattern of Old Norse bynames derived from animals, but we do not have evidence of this byname being used by actual people this early at this time.

The submitter might be interested to know that the attested form vlf can be found as early as the 14th century; other documentary forms include wlf (15th century) and vlff (15th-16th centuries). If he is interested in any of these spellings, he may make a request for reconsideration.

* Unna Farulfsdottir. Badge. (Fieldless) A tentacle couped bendwise sinister vert sustaining a mountain couped bendwise Or.

* Zahira al-Katib. Name change from Ćva of Skye and device. Per bend argent and sable, a fox's tail couped, tip to base proper.

The submitter's previous name, Ćva of Skye, is retained as an alternate.

Nice device!

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:

* ĆTHELMEARC returns (to acceptances)

* Albertus Staffordiensis. Badge. (Fieldless) On a hurt conjoined in chief to a triangle inverted Or a demi-sun Or conjoined in pale with a demi-roundel inverted argent.

This badge is returned for lack of documentation in support of the design of the tertiary charges. In the February 2020 return of the device of Erlendr Jafnakollr, Per fess sable and azure, conjoined in pale a demi-roundel gules fimbriated argent and a demi-sun Or eclipsed sable each issuant from the line of division, we noted:

This is returned for redesign. The Letter of Intent did not provide any support for two dissimilar demi-charges drawn across a line of division and joined in such a way that they appear to make a whole single element, nor were commenters able to provide such documentation.

While this badge lacks the line of division, the same basic problem remains: a lack of documentation that demonstrates that combining two demi-charges in this way is supported by period armory, except in the creation of monsters or in dimidiation, which is a form of marshalling of two independent pieces of armory and is thus unregisterable.

(to Ćthelmearc acceptances) (to Ćthelmearc returns)


* AN TIR returns (to acceptances)

* Caterine Rose d'Evreux. Badge. (Fieldless) A cross miller sable overall a fleur-de-lis Or.

This badge is returned for barely overall as defined in SENA Appendix I.D. In this case, the fleur-de-lys nearly entirely obscures the arms of the cross miller, which is a returnable style issue, and one which we do not believe can be satisfactorily addressed within the time constraints of a pend for redraw.

This device is returned per SENA A3D2c, for lack of unity of orientation of the secondary crescents and spool of thread.

* Jórunn Hestsskáld. Device. Azure, a horse salient, in dexter base a compass star Or.

This device is returned for conflict with the armory of Alienor of Farryngdon, Azure, a horse salient within a bordure engrailed Or. There is a DC for the change in type of secondary from bordure to mullet, but no DC or the position of the bordure, which is inherent in its definition.

This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Gwyn of Gildenwick, Vert, an oak sprig and an orle argent. There is a DC for the difference between an orle and a chief, but nothing else.

* GLEANN ABHANN returns (to acceptances)

* Sárán mac Ímair. Device change. Gules, three scarpes argent each charged with a scarpe sable.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of John FitzArnulf de Lithia, Bendy sinister sable and gules. A scarpe charged with another scarpe must be considered as if it were a scarpe fimbriated. Fimbriation does not contribute difference, and three diminutive ordinaries is considered to be the equivalent of a multi-part field division for purposes of conflict, and so this device must be considered as if it were Bendy sinister gules and sable, which has no DCs from John's device.

* NORTHSHIELD returns (to acceptances)

* Katriona ni Chonarain. Guild name Worshipful Company of Moneyers.

This name is returned for being overly generic. Many groups can, and do, have a company of moneyers and may identify a badge as belonging to that company as a generic identifier without registering it. Registering such a name to any one branch or person would disallow others from using it. Previous precedent holds that adding a locative to a non-personal name can sometimes remove the appearance of being overly generic: "Therefore, we uphold the precedents that Worshipful Company of X is not generic as long as a branch name is also included and have added of Dragonship Haven in order to register this guild name. This ruling does not mean that generic identifiers in general can be made registerable in this manner. [Dragonship Haven, Barony of, 08/2016, A-East]"

The submitter requested that the locative of Northshield be added in order to remove the appearance of being overly generic. However, we are unable to do so. SENA NPN3D says in part, "Non-personal names may not unmistakably imply ownership by or affiliation with any name we protect." The name Worshipful Company of Moneyers of Northshield would unmistakably imply that this group was owned by the Kingdom of Northshield. However, the submitter in this instance is not the kingdom. Therefore, they may not claim ownership of this group in this manner.

If this group is to be owned by the Kingdom of Northshield, it should be submitted by the kingdom. If it is to be owned personally by this submitter, another locative that is not an SCA branch should be chosen upon resubmission to remove the appearance of being overly generic. In the meantime, this name must be returned.

This device is pended for redraw to make the estoile and unicorn's head more clearly co-primary. As submitted, this blurs the distinction betweeen a co-primary unicorn's head and estoile versus a primary unicorn's head and secondary estoile.

This was item 5 on the Atenveldt letter of April 30, 2022.
