Nice cant!

Nice 15th-16th century Irish Gaelic name!

Nice device!

* Mór svín in gráa. Name change from Emma Rover.

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

The submitter's previous name, Emma Rover, is retained as an alternate.

(to Ćthelmearc acceptances) (to Ćthelmearc returns)


* AN TIR acceptances (to returns)

* Ćffe Michaelesdohtor. Name and device. Azure, a bee and on a chief embattled argent three cherry blossoms azure.

Submitted as Ćffan Mikaelsdottir, the submitter indicated a preference for an Anglo-Saxon byname meaning 'Michael's daughter' instead of Old Norse Mikaelsdottir. Creating a patronymic from the Old English name Michael results in the byname Michaelesdohtor. We have therefore made this change for registration.

The submitter documented the given name Ćffan from "Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters" by Marieke van de Dal (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/). In April 2017, we cautioned against using this article to document given names, as not all of the given names listed are in the nominative case [April 2017 Cover Letter]. In this case, Ćffan is not an Old English nominative form, which we require for registration; rather, it is the Old English dative form. The nominative form of this name is Ćffe. We have therefore made this change for registration.

As of this publication, "Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters" by Marieke van de Dal (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/) is no longer acceptable as sole documentation for an Old English feminine given name. See the Cover Letter for more information. Palimpsest is directed to add this to Appendix F of the Administrative Handbook.

* Ćsa Ormr-í-auga. Badge. (Fieldless) A triskelion of dragon's heads purpure.

* Ćsa Ormr-í-auga. Badge. (Fieldless) A triskelion of dragon's heads vert.

* An Tir, Kingdom of. Order name reconsideration from Order of Sanguins Thorn to Order of the Sanguine Thorn.

Appearing on the Letter of Intent as Order of _ Sanguine Thorn, requests for reconsideration must concern the name that was originally modified or returned. In this case, the name of the order that was originally submitted by the Kingdom is Order of the Sanguine Thorn, but it was registered as Order of _ Sanguins Thorn.

As the original reason for changing this name has been overturned and the color word sanguine may now be used in non-personal names per SENA Appendix E5, we are happy to accept this request for reconsideration.

* Athelyna of Oldenfeld. Name and device. Vert, a lion's head cabossed between in chief two frets couped Or, a ford proper.

Oldenfeld is the registered name of an SCA branch.

* Bergdís sćfari. Name and device. Or, a mermaid vert maintaining to dexter a bow sable.

* Conchobhar Ciúin. Name and device. Per chevron sable and vert, in pall three rabbits rampant conjoined at the foot argent, in chief five hawk's bells Or.

Nice Irish Gaelic name from the 12th century through the end of our period!

* Contze Villicus. Device. Per pale checky sable and argent and gules, an alphyn rampant Or within a bordure counterchanged Or and checky sable and argent.

* Cuthbert Weaver. Name and device. Gules, a palm tree, on a chief argent four bells gules.

Nice late 16th century English name!

* Dzovinar Korikoslian. Name and device. Per bend argent and azure, a pomegranate gules seeded and an anchor Or.

Submitted as Dzovinar Korikosen, this name was not constructed correctly. The available evidence we have for forming locations based on cities in the Armenian language suggests that a name meaning 'from Korikos' would be Korikoslian, not Korikosen. We have therefore made this change for registration.

The submitter provided a number of references to Armenian oral traditions. These traditions were first written down in the 19th century; in subsequent scholarly works it was noted that they had been widely known in the 16th century. This evidence is enough to give this given name the benefit of the doubt and allow us to register this name.

* Guđrun Ulriksdottir. Name change from Guđrun Sćbjarnardottir.

The submitter requested authenticity for Old Norse. This name does not meet that request. We do not currently have evidence that the given name Ulrik enters the Danish naming pool until the 15th century, well after Old East Norse stopped being spoken in Denmark. Therefore, while this name is registerable, it is not authentic.

The submitter might be interested to know that the Old East Norse name Guđrun Ulfríksdóttir would meet the authenticity request. Additionally, Guthrun Ulriksdottir is an authentic Old Danish name using the submitted spelling of the byname. If they are interested in either of these names, they may make a request for reconsideration.

The submitter's previous name, Guđrun Sćbjarnardottir, is retained as an alternate.

* Halldóra Bj{o,}rn. Name and device. Per pale azure and vert, on a bird Or a rose proper.

* Isabella de Walingeford. Device. Azure, in saltire a needle argent threaded Or and an artist's paintbrush between in pale a chess knight and a die argent.

* James Shoemaker. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Nice 16th century English name!

* Katryne MacKim. Badge. (Fieldless) A raven sable maintaining in its beak a gem ring azure.

Nice badge!

* Katryne MacKim. Badge. (Fieldless) A raven sable maintaining in its beak an arrow argent.

Nice badge!

* Kormákr Vermundarson. Name and device. Gules, within a serpent in annulo vorant of its own tail two axes in saltire Or.

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

* Muriele Gordon. Name and device. Or, on a horse passant sable a lozenge Or.

* Mýrún Bjarnardóttir. Alternate name Marta Lisabetta Barbadori da Poppi.

* Nafanail Lekarev. Name and device. Sable semy of needles argent.

This device does not conflict with the device of Matsuyama Yoshitoshi, reblazoned elsewhere on this letter as Sable, in fess a pair of pine needles palewise between two pairs of pine needles in annulo argent. Matsuyama's device has three pairs of pine needles in fess, which has a DC for arrangement from semy under SENA A5G6; and there is at least DC for type between a sewing needle and a pine needle due to the obvious eye of the former. We decline to rule at this time whether a pair of pine needles counts as a single charge or as two.

Nice device!

* Rulav Elkin. Name and device. Sable mullety argent, a ray of the sun Or.

Nice device!

* Rurik Gjafvaldsson. Badge. (Fieldless) An axe head with its blade to base Or.

Axe heads default to having their blade to dexter. We direct Palimpsest to update Table 5 of the Glossary of Terms accordingly.

Nice badge!

* Sebina Flecher. Device. Azure, a manatee haurient argent and in chief three dragonflies Or.

The use of a manatee, an animal known to period people, is no longer a step from core practice.

* Sedanias maqqas Voenacunas. Name and device. Purpure, a domestic cat sejant argent ermined vert.

Nice Oghamic name!

* Thadeus Wood Butcher. Name and device. Per pall argent, azure, and vert, an eagle Or.

Nice 16th century English name!

(to An Tir acceptances) (to An Tir returns)


* ANSTEORRA acceptances (to returns)

* Bethesda Starr. Device. Per chevron throughout purpure and vert, a unicorn statant contourny and on a chief embattled argent a lotus blossom in profile gules.

* Cyna von Köln. Name and device. Quarterly per fess indented ermine and sable, a crescent and a rose argent barbed vert, a bordure azure.

Submitted as Cyna Von Köln, this name is not constructed correctly. In German, the preposition von is not capitalized. Though the submitter allowed no changes, they have explicitly consented to this change and so we have made it for registration.

* Elena Levin. Name and device. Purpure, in fess two krisses inverted, a bordure rayonny Or.

Submitted as Eleonora Levin, the submitter requested authenticity for "Russian, with Eleonora as the preferred if Eleanore is not acceptable". This request was not noted on the Letter of Intent. Kingdoms are reminded that all authenticity requests must be summarized on the Letter of Intent to ensure a name does not need to be pended for further research. Fortunately, Alisoun Metron Ariston was able to identify this request in commentary with enough time for commenters to respond.

We do not currently have evidence that the given name Eleonora enters the Russian naming pool during our period. The similar-sounding given name Elena can be dated to our period in Russian; as this is the smallest change we can make to meet the authenticity request, with the consent of the submitter we have done so for registration.

As modified, this is an authentic Russian name circa 1500; the given name dates to 1527 while the byname dates to 1498.

The submitter indicated an interest in the Russian language. However, they may also be interested to know that Elenore Levin is an authentic 16th century English name. If they are interested in this name, they may make a request for reconsideration.

The use of a kris, a period artifact, is no longer a step from core practice.

* Elizabeth Brewer. Name.

The submitter requested authenticity for a 14th century English spelling of Elizabeth. This name meets that request. The submitter might also be interested to know that the entire name is authentic from the 14th century to the end of our period in England.

* Ivo Baller. Name and device. Per chevron inverted Or and azure, a peacock in his pride proper and two bezants.

* Jourdain Escarrabin. Name.

Nice 15th century French name!

* Kolli Řxnamegin. Name and device. Per pale sable and vert, an ox's head cabossed and on a chief Or three bulrushes sable.

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

Nice cant!

* Michael {w^} Orzeldom. Name and device. Per pale vert and argent, in pale a chevronel couped and two crosses formy counterchanged.

This name and device were pended on the November 2022 LoAR to allow the submitter to provide documentation allowing them to use the Existing Registration Allowance. This documentation has been provided.

Michael is the submitter's legal given name.

{w^} Orzeldom is the registered SCA byname of the submitter's father, used here via the Existing Registration Allowance.

The use of an ordinary and non-ordinary in the same charge group is allowed under the Existing Registration Allowance, as this motif is registered to the submitter's father, Jan {w^} Orzeldom.

* Patricia of Blackmoor. Reblazon of device. Sable, a dexter hand aversant fesswise argent sustaining a gillyflower in profile gules slipped vert.

Blazoned when registered in August 1979 as Sable, a dexter hand couped argent maintaining a gillyflower proper [Dianthus carylphyllus], reblazoned in September 2000 as Sable, a dexter hand aversant fesswise sustaining a gillyflower proper to clarify the orientation of the hand, and reblazoned in June 2021 as Sable, a dexter hand aversant fesswise argent sustaining a gillyflower gules slipped vert to clarify the tinctures of the charges, we reblazoning this to clarify the orientation of the flower, as gillyflowers are typically affronty.

* Reis ap Tuder ap Wyn. Heraldic title Benevolence Herald.

* Sewallus Siward de Shirley. Household name House of Siren Songe and badge. (Fieldless) A light-skinned mermaid proper crined Or maintaining in her sinister hand a death's head argent.

Submitted as Sirens Song, this household name lacked a designator; designators are required per SENA NPN2A. In addition, this combination of elements does not follow any attested pattern we have for household names. The submitter approved a change to House of Siren Songe to solve these issues. House is a designator for English household names per SENA Appendix E. The substantive element Siren Songe follows the attested English household name pattern House of [full name]. We have made these changes for registration.

* Sorley Mac Donnell. Name and device. Per bend wavy sable and Or, a barrel and an escallop counterchanged.

Appearing on the Letter of Intent as Sorely Mac Donnell, the submission form shows the given name as Sorley. We have corrected this typo for registration.

The submitter documented Sorley as an English surname. They might be interested to know that the similar name Sorlye can be documented as an Anglicized Irish given name. If they are interested in the wholly Anglicized Irish name Sorlye Mac Donnell, they may make a request for reconsideration.

* Theodektes of Sparta. Name and device. Sable, in saltire two tridents inverted, overall a Greek helm affronty Or crested gules.

Submitted as Theodekles of Sparta, no suitable evidence was provided in support of the given name Theodekles. One similar sounding theophoric Greek name is Theodektes 'god's receiver', deriving from the Greek elements Theo- 'god' and -dektes 'receiver'; this name is found in the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names (http://clas-lgpn2.classics.ox.ac.uk/cgi-bin/lgpn_search.cgi?). As this is the smallest change we can make to register this name, we have done so for registration.

The submitter might be interested to know that another similar sounding theophoric Greek name is Theokles, meaning 'glory of god', also found in the LGPN. If the submitter is interested the name Theokles of Sparta, they may make a request for reconsideration.

Artist's note: Please draw the helmet larger, as befits an overall charge.

* Úlfeiđr á Ţróndheimi. Alternate name Kiyad-un Silugukhan Qatakhan.

The submitter requested authenticity for the late 12th century Mongol Empire. We do not have enough data from this language during this time period to make an educated decision on whether or not this name is authentic at this time. The earliest known surviving manuscripts in the Mongol language can only be dated to the 13th century. Even though we cannot say if it is authentic, this name is registerable as submitted.

* Úna inghean ui Sionaigh. Name.

Submitted as Úna inghean ui Sionnach, this name was not constructed correctly. The clan name "descendant of Sinach" would take various forms over time, becoming inghean ui Sionaigh by the submitter's requested 14th century time period. We have therefore changed this name to Úna inghean ui Sionaigh for registration.

* William Theriot de Renard. Badge. Argent, a juniper sprig vert fructed azure within and conjoined to an annulet sable.

* Zane Mountaine Gate ap Simonn. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Zane is the submitter's legal given name.

Simonn is the registered SCA given name of the submitter's father, used here via the Existing Registration Allowance.

* ARTEMISIA acceptances (to returns)

* Beatriz de Saavedra. Name and device. Barry wavy argent and azure, on a bend sinister sable three pomegranates slipped and leaved Or.

The submitter requested authenticity for 16th century Spanish. This name meets that request.

(to Artemisia acceptances) (to Artemisia returns)


* ATENVELDT acceptances (to returns)

* Amanda of Sundragon. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Argent, a frog vert and on a chief gules four daisies proper.

Submitted under the name Fionnghuala Coili.

* Galen Shadowhawk. Reblazon of device. Per bend sinister sable and vert, a hawk striking affronty argent head and body proper between in bend two bezants.

Blazoned when registered in October of 1988 as Per bend sinister sable and vert, a red-tailed hawk displayed guardant proper between two bezants in bend [Buteo jamaicensis], this was reblazoned in June of 2021 as Per bend sinister sable and vert, a hawk displayed guardant argent head and body proper between in bend two bezants to clarify the tincture of the bird and remove the Linnaean classification. We are now reblazoning this device to clarify the posture of the bird. The posture striking affronty is considered identical to displayed for purposes of conflict.

* Guenhowar Apiaria. Device. Gules, on a sunflower Or a bee gules winged argent.

Nice cant!

* Ian Wallace of Llawhaden. Reblazon of device. Per fess vert and argent, a tree counterchanged, overall a Celtic harp reversed gules.

Blazoned when registered in July of 1985 as Per fess vert and argent, a tree eradicated counterchanged, overall a Celtic harp gules, we are clarifying the orientation of the harp and noting that the tree has only the expected amount of above-ground root showing so is not eradicated.

* Liam Mac Coilin. Name and device. Per bend azure and vert, a tree blasted between four ravens rising two and two argent.

Submitted as Liam Mac Coili, this name is not constructed correctly. Mac Coili is not an attested byname. What is attested is the byname Mac Coili where the bar over the terminal letter i represents a scribal abbreviation. This abbreviation adds the letter n to the end of the name; in this case, it would expand to create the name Mac Coilin. Accordingly, we have made this change for registration.

* Luther von Eissen. Name and device. Vert, a chevron Or, overall a sinister gauntlet clenched argent.

Artist's note: please draw the gauntlet larger so more of it lies on the field.

* Michael the Literate. Reblazon of device. Per pale gules and ermine, on a chevron Or five quatrefoils voided each within and conjoined to an annulet sable.

Blazoned when registered in August of 1979 as Per pale gules and ermine, on a chevron Or five quatrefoils voided, each within an annulet, sable, we are clarifying the relationship between the tertiary charges.

* Odette Steingrim. Device. Purpure, a willow tree and on a chief rayonny argent three swans wings displayed sable.

* Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani. Badge. Checky purpure and argent, a horse's head contourny sable breathing flames proper issuant from in base a pearled coronet Or.

This badge does not conflict with the badge of An Tir's Ordre du Lion et de la Lance, Checky Or and argent, a horse's head couped contourny sable. There is a DC for the change in tincture of half the field, and another for the addition of the secondary coronet. If the coronet were considered as a collar rather than a secondary charge, there would still be a DC; collars on (non-canine) heads are worth a difference, and are treated as equivalent to tertiary charges.

The submitter is a court baron and thus entitled to display a coronet.

* Tarl Mapt. Reblazon of device. Argent, a pile between two piles inverted sable, the lower two piles surmounted by a double-bitted axe argent hafted proper.

Blazoned when registered in June 1973 as Argent, a pile between two piles inverted sable, overall a battle-axe argent hafted proper, fimbriated sable, we are clarifying the position and style of the axe. On examination of the registered emblazon we determined that there is no fimbriation present, just the expected outlines.

* Thorunn Eiriksdottir. Name change from Sigrun Eiriksdottir and badge. Per bend sable and argent, on a bend azure three wolves passant palewise argent.

The submitter's previous name, Sigrun Eiriksdottir, is retained as an alternate.

When the term palewise is used of an animate or compact charge on a bend, chevron, or saltire, it means the charge has the same orientation as it would have directly on the field, rather than following the tilt of the ordinary. See the Cover Letter for more information.

* Thorunn Eiriksdottir. Release of name Varju Dorothea.

* Thorunn Eiriksdottir. Release of badge. Per fess vert and sable, two stags trippant and a bow fesswise string to chief argent.

* Thorunn Eiriksdottir. Release of badge. Per fess gules and argent, two ravens argent and a drakkar reversed oars in action sable sailed and with shields gules.

* ATLANTIA acceptances (to returns) (to pends)

* Aédán MacLeod. Name and device. Vert, in fess a roundel between an increscent and a decrescent and issuant from base a mountain of three peaks argent.

This name combines a Gaelic given name with a Scots byname, an acceptable lingual mix per SENA Appendix C.

* Alaric Gaulnhoffen. Name and device. Per saltire vert and Or, two eagles argent and two wolf's heads couped respectant sable.

Submitted as hawks, the birds in this device have none of the characteristics that would identify them as such: a smooth head, jesses, bells, or hoods. Therefore, we have reblazoned them as eagles.

* Aleyn Brus. Name and device. Per chevron vert and Or, two trees blasted and a bear's pawprint counterchanged.

Nice early 14th century English name!

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

* Arnbj(o,}rg Karlsdottír and Aeddan Ivor. Joint household name House of Water Dragon.

* Artorius Dudley Conchobhar. Name change from Artorius Conchobhar.

The name elements Artorius and Conchobhar are already registered to the submitter and used here via the Existing Registration Allowance.

The submitter's previous name, Artorius Conchobhar, is retained as an alternate.

* Atlantia, Kingdom of. Badge for standard augmentation. (Fieldless) On a pavilion argent a unicornate natural seahorse azure.

The submitter is entitled to the use of a unicornate natural seahorse per the Existing Registration Allowance.

The Letter of Intent stated this submission was to be associated with Augmentation of Arms (Atlantia) Pennsic War XLIX (Ćthelme), which is much too specific. As noted on the November 2022 Cover Letter, "no restrictions can be placed upon the identity of a submitter making use of a Standard Augmentation beyond the simple entitlement to register an augmentation of arms". Luckily, the actual requested association on the submission form was simply Standard Augmentation, so we have registered this as such.

Submissions Heralds are reminded of the importance of summarizing submitters' wishes accurately, and of explicitly noting any changes made to information from the forms and the reasons for the change.

* Drath Wilson. Name and device. Argent semy of ivy leaves vert, a cockatrice contourny wings displayed sable crested and jelloped gules.

Submitted as Darth Wilson, the submitter intended the given name to be Drath instead. As a timely comment clearly communicated the submitter's intent, we are happy to make this change for registration.

* Elspeth MacLur de Iarsay. Name change from Elspeth de Iarsay and device. Azure, a heart and on a chief argent three pawprints sable.

The name elements Elspeth and de Iarsay are already registered to this submitter, making them neutral in time and place.

The submitter's previous name, Elspeth de Iarsay, is retained as an alternate.

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

* Jirou of Tanwayour. Name (see PENDS for device).

Tanwayour is the registered name of an SCA branch.

* Kalara Rakoczi. Device. Azure, an alpaca statant argent, on a chief Or a roundel between a increscent and a decrescent azure.

This is the defining instance of the alpaca, a South American camelid which was domesticated by humans thousands of years ago.

The alpaca will conflict with camels and llamas.

* Lileth of Glass Isle. Device. Vert, in pale a coney courant and a lotus blossom in profile argent.

* Markus Winter. Name (see PENDS for device).

* Matteo Alessandro Ulisse Rugieri. Device change. Per chevron barry wavy azure and argent and gules, between two sea-lions respectant and a lymphad a mullet Or.

The submitter's previous device, Per chevron barry wavy azure and argent, and gules, two sea-lions and a ship Or, is retained as a badge.

* Morita Daichi. Name change from Ector Villalobos de Granada and device change. Argent, a futatsutomoe, in chief a bar sable.

Submitted as Morita No Daiichi, the submitter indicated an interest in a houmyou meaning 'great land'. Choi Min was able to construct this with two kanji that transliterate as Daichi. In addition, the byname Morita is not an uji name and should not use the particle no. Accordingly, we have changed this name to Morita _ Daichi for registration.

The submitter's previous name, Ector Villalobos de Granada, is retained as an alternate.

The use of futatsutomoe was disallowed on the March 2019 Cover Letter:

Similar motifs, such as two tomoe in annulo (futatsutomoe) or four tomoe in annulo (yotsutomoe) will need to be documented to period mon in order to be used in Society armory, as will the use of a single tomoe.

However, as evidence was provided in commentary for the period use of futatsutomoe, we partially overturn this precedent and will allow the registration of futatsutomoe.

This device does not conflict with the device of Yamamoto Tokutarou Hikaru, Argent, a mitsutomoe within a well frame sable. There is at least a DC for the difference between a futatsutomoe and a mitsutomoe, and another for the type of secondary charge.

As a period armorial motif, there is not step from core practice for the use of a futatsutomoe; and as the mitsutomoe is also a motif found in period Japanese heraldry, there is no longer a step from core practice for its use. We direct Palimpsest to update SENA Appendix G2 to remove the mitsutomoe from the list of motifs that are a step from core practice.

The submitter's previous device, Per bend sinister wavy sable and gules, a horse's head couped and a wolf's head couped contourny argent, is retained as a badge.

* Stoffel die Wafelere. Device. Sable grillage Or.

Nice device!

* Sysselye Bulleyn. Name.

Nice late 16th century English name!

* Ulfweard of York. Name change from Vlfbeorn Ćlfweardes sunu and device change. Per pall inverted gules, argent, and azure, a Celtic cross argent and four wolf's teeth issuant from sinister gules.

The submitter's previous name, Vlfbeorn Ćlfweardes sunu, is retained as an alternate.

The submitter's previous devices, Per pall inverted azure, argent and gules, in chief a mullet of eight points argent and a Celtic cross gules and Argent, a wolf rampant contourny sable, four wolf's teeth issuing from sinister gules, are retained as badges.

* Ursus Bay, Shire of. Branch name and device. Quarterly Or and gules, a bear's head erased, in canton a laurel wreath sable.

We wish to thank Alys Ogress for her work on this name.

Nice device!

The submitter has permission to conflict with the armory of Isolda Swonild, Per pale argent and sable, two swans naiant respectant, wings elevated, conjoined at the beaks and breasts counterchanged.

* Fyvie Ohe. Name and device. Argent, in chevron inverted five annulets and in chief a raven contourny sable.

This name combines an English given name borrowed into German with a German byname; this practice is acceptable for the 16th century per the February 2015 Cover Letter.

* Fyvie Ohe. Badge. (Fieldless) A raven contourny maintaining in its beak an annulet sable.

* Kseniia Aleksandrova. Name change from Batu Sechen Tsagaajin.

The submitter's previous name, Batu Sechen Tsagaajin, is released.

* Leo Phelan. Name change from Ciar ingen Fháeláin and device. Per chevron argent and sable, a chevron purpure and in base a sea-wolf argent.

Phelan is the registered SCA byname of the submitter's parent, used here via the Existing Registration Allowance.

The submitter's previous name, Ciar ingen Fháeláin, is retained as an alternate.

* Liam Mór MacGregor. Name change from Uilliam Mór MacGregor.

This name combines an English given name, a Gaelic descriptive byname and a Scots patronymic byname. Normally, the combination of three languages would not be allowed in the same name; however, English and Scots are part of the same Regional Naming Group in SENA Appendix C. Therefore, this name only combines name phrases from two Regional Naming Groups and it may be registered as submitted.

The submitter's previous name, Uilliam Mór MacGregor, is released.

* Matsuyama Yoshitoshi. Reblazon of device. Sable, in fess a pair of pine needles palewise between two pairs of pine needles in annulo argent.

Blazoned when registered in January 1989 as Sable, a pair of pine needles palewise between two pairs of pine needles in annulo argent, we are clarifying the arrangement of the pine needles.

* Mirandus Palmerius. Name (see RETURNS for device).

* Paul fitz Denis. Heraldic title Mash Rake Herald.

Nice badge!

This name combines a German given name borrowed into English with an English surname; this practice is permitted on the February 2015 Cover Letter.

* Uhtred Brúnsson. Name and device. Per fess enarched Or and azure, a grey ram's head erased proper and an axe bendwise argent.

This name combines an Old English given name with an Old Norse byname, an acceptable lingual mix per SENA Appendix C as long as both elements are dated prior to 1100 CE.

For conflict purposes, the ram's head is considered sable.

* Veđr Hafsson. Name change from Steinn Hafsson.

The submitter's previous name, Steinn Hafsson, is retained as an alternate.

* Veđr Hafsson. Alternate name Vyse Hafsson.

The byname Hafsson is already registered to the submitter, making it neutral and time and place. It may therefore be combined with the German given name Vyse and this name may be registered as submitted.

* Aoibheann inghean Cearan. Name.

Submitted as Aoibhe_ Ingen Ui Cearan, this name has two issues. First, no documentation could be found for the given name Aoibhe. The submitter opted to change to the attested given name Aoibheann instead. Additionally, the submitter intended the byname to mean 'daughter of Cearan'. In Irish Gaelic, this byname would be inghean Cearan for the time period contemporary with the desired spelling of the father's given name. We have therefore changed this name to Aoibheann inghean Cearan for registration.

Cearan is the registered SCA given name of the submitter's father and is used here via the Existing Registration Allowance.

The submitter indicated that they were interested in a given name that sounded like 'Ava'. They might be interested to know that the given name Aoife most closely matches this sound. If they are interested in the name Aoife inghean Cearan, they may make a request for reconsideration.

* Calontir, Kingdom of. Order name Order of Falcons Bell.

* Fleur Barincou. Device. Azure, a moth between three fleurs-de-lys argent.

* John Bowyer. Reblazon of badge. (Fieldless) Two crayfish haurient addorsed and conjoined argent maintaining in chief a bell azure semy-de-lys argent.

Blazoned when registered in January 2018 as (Fieldless) Two crayfish addorsed and conjoined argent maintaining in chief a bell azure semy-de-lys argent, we are clarifying the postures of the crayfish. Like crabs and lobsters, the default posture for crayfish is tergiant, head to chief. These crayfish are haurient, not tergiant.

* Líknvé in spaka. Name and device. Or, a lily purpure and in chief an ivy vine fesswise proper.

* Maria Arosa de Santa Olalla. Name.

* Richard Corbet. Name and device. Azure, a stag's head erased affronty and on a chief argent three lilies azure.

Nice English name for the early 13th century onwards!

* Ćsc ćt Escanceastre. Name change from Irina Dmitrievna and device change. Quarterly vert and azure, an annulet argent.

Submitted as Ćsc ćt Escanceaster, Old English locatives take the dative case when following the article ćt. The dative form of Escanceaster is Escanceastre. We have made this change for registration.

The submitter's previous name, Irina Dmitrievna, is retained as an alternate.

Nice device!

The submitter's previous device, Azure, in pale a fleur-de-lys and issuant from base a sinister hand argent, is retained as a badge.

* Birittha Wf. Alternate name Hüüpiäinen Unnikki.

This name is constructed using North Finnic elements that predate the written daughter languages Finnish and Karelian. In this case, we have a scholarly standard that we can use to reconstruct and therefore transcribe these elements. We may therefore register this name as submitted based on the Board's recent expansion of our mandated sphere of research.

* Drachenwald, Kingdom of. Badge for Armourers Guild. Argent, on a chevron between two helms and a dragon passant coward sable a gauntlet aversant argent between two pairs of swords in saltire proper.

This badge does not have a Unity of Orientation issue under SENA A2D2c; that section explicitly only applies to charges that have comparable orientations, which swords (long charges) and gauntlets (compact orientable charges) do not.

Armourers Guild is a generic identifier.

* Gráinne inghean Uí Néill. Name and device. Per fess gules and sable, two bees Or marked sable and a rose Or.

Nice Gaelic name from the 14th century onwards!

* Jean Oste de Murat. Reblazon of badge. (Fieldless) A prawn haurient Or.

Blazoned when registered in May 2017 as (Fieldless) A prawn Or, we are clarifying the orientation of the prawn. Based on period evidence, a prawn is fesswise with its head to dexter by default. Whether it is depicted in profile or tergiant is an optionally blazonable detail and does not contribute to difference. Palimpsest is directed to update Table 5 of the Glossary of Terms with this information. The prawn in this badge is haurient (palewise), not fesswise.

* Ricardus Hunyadi. Name and device. Sable, a reremouse and in canton a decrescent argent.

* Ryan Mac Whyte and Kay Leigh Mac Whyte. Joint badge. (Fieldless) A cross of four ermine spots quarterly gules and Or.

* Signý Kráka. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and purpure, a raven sable and a cauldron argent.

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

Nice cant on a byname meaning "crow".

* Yehoshua ben Haim haLevi. Device change. Argent, six pomegranates gules slipped and leaved vert.

* Grey Niche, Barony of. Order name Order of the Pearl of Grey Niche.

* Grey Niche, Barony of. Order name Order of the Seed Pearl (see RETURNS for badge).

A seed pearl is an object known to period people; its earliest use dates to 1598 in the OED s.v. seed pearl. Therefore, an order may be named for it per the guidelines on the August 2022 Cover Letter.

* Grey Niche, Barony of. Badge for Order of Denial of the Niche. Or, a pile inverted wavy throughout azure.

* Grey Niche, Barony of. Augmentation of arms. Sable, on a pile Or between in base two estoiles argent a laurel wreath vert, for augmentation in canton three mullets one and two argent.

* Ilona Levente. Name and device. Argent, a dog statant reguardant and on a chief gules a decrescent and a sun Or.

* Zmeia Viazovna. Name.

Submitted as Zmiya Viazovna, no evidence was provided for the given name Zmiya. One plausible way to make a feminine form of the masculine given name Zmei is Zmeia, following the examples of Aleksandr/Aleksandra, Palladii/Palladiia, and Tain/Taina, all found in "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names" by Paul Wickenden of Thanet (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/). As feminizing the name in this way results in the smallest change, we have made it for registration.

* Isabella Rose Gardiner. Device change. Per chevron gules and argent, on a chevron sable five ermine spots argent, in base a rose proper.

By precedent:

"There is no heraldic difference between this chief and a chief counter-ermine, and we would normally blazon it as the latter; however, five is few enough that the number may be specified, if the submitter insists." [Alaina Frantzin von Wirtenberg, Jan 2008, A-Calontir]

Similarly, in the current submission there is no heraldic difference between this chevron and a chevron counter-ermine; so we will blazon it as five ermine spots to meet the submitter's wishes.

The submitter's previous device, Per chevron gules and argent, a chevron counter-ermine and a rose gules, is released.

* Rosa Frye. Name and device. Per bend argent and sable semy of fish skeletons fesswise argent, on a bend bretessed Or five water-wheels sable, in sinister canton a rose proper.

The submitter requested authenticity for 14th-16th century English. This request was not noted on the Letter of Intent but was fortunately noted by Lilie Ragged Staff with enough time for commenters to respond. Kingdoms are reminded that all requests for authenticity must be summarized on the Letter of Intent to avoid a name being pended for further research.

This name meets that request as it is authentic for 14th century England.

Nice cant!

* Rosa Frye. Badge. Per pale embattled argent and sable, a rose proper and a fish skeleton palewise argent.

* Rosa Frye and Llewellyn de Guerre. Joint badge. Per pale embattled argent and sable, a thistle proper and a fish skeleton palewise argent.

* Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Golden Coracle and badge. Per bend sinister argent and azure, a coracle Or.

There is a blazonable difference, but not a DC, between this badge and the following badge, as neither vessel is under sail.

* Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Golden Lymphad and badge. Per bend sinister argent and azure, a lymphad Or.

There is a blazonable difference, but not a DC, between this badge and the preceding badge, as neither vessel is under sail.

Nice badge!

* Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Oak Tree and badge. Per bend sinister azure and argent, an oak tree fructed and eradicated Or.

Nice badge!

* Adelaide of Iron Mountain. Household name Maison du Pegase.

Submitted as Maison de Pégase, the noun pegase is masculine. Therefore, the correct article for the French language should be du. We have made this change for registration. In addition, the accent appears to be a post-period editiorial mark. We have accordingly removed it for registration.

* Adelaide of Iron Mountain. Heraldic title Diligence Herault.

Nice heraldic title for circa 1400!

* Áshildr Vaksdóttir. Name and device. Azure, a wolf salient and on a chief engrailed argent two hunting horns azure.

* Einarr Ragnarsson. Name and device. Argent, on a sun sable a drakkar argent, a base engrailed gules.

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

* Osprey, Barony of the. Order name Order of the Fleggeling of the Osprey.

Submitted as Order of the Osprey's Fledgling, no evidence was provided for the pattern Order of the [place name]'s [thing]. In addition, we do not currently have evidence that the noun fledgling entered the English language during our period.

However, we were able to construct a similar-sounding order name acceptable to the Barony. A flegge is a Middle English noun meaning 'a reed, a rush' (MED s.v. flegge n.). The Middle English suffix -ling can be added to nouns showing a relationship between them, such as in the word sapling; here, a compound word fleggeling might be used as a diminutive for a reed or rush to indicate that it is newly grown or small. As rushes and reeds are plants known to period people, an order may be created from words used to describe them. We have therefore changed this name to Order of the Fleggeling of the Osprey for registration.

* Osprey, Barony of the. Order name Order of the Sable Drakkar.

* Ţorfinnr langskeggr Eiriksson. Name and device. Sable, a winged lion segreant between three annulets Or.

* Ironhawk Hawkcrest. Reblazon of device. Per pale vert and Or, a grey martial eagle's head crested and erased proper.

Blazoned when registered in August of 1979 as Per pale vert and Or, an iron hawk's head erased proper, this was reblazoned in September of 1992 as Per pale vert and Or, a hawk's head erased argent to clarify the tincture of the bird's head. As we now allow the use of animals that were not known to period Europeans, and at the submitter's request, we are now reblazoning the bird as a martial eagle, which is a reasonable description of the crested head in the registered emblazon. We decline to rule on the registerability of this bird in a new submission.

For purposes of conflict the eagle's head will be treated as argent.

* Shattered Crystal, Barony of the. Order name Award of the Beacon of the Shattered Crystal.

Submitted as Award of the Beacon of _ Shattered Crystal, the Barony's name is registered as Barony of the Shattered Crystal. As submissions relying on the Branch Name Allowance must use the exact registered name of an SCA branch, we have added the article the for registration.

* Shattered Crystal, Barony of the. Order name Award of the Shard of the Shattered Crystal.

Submitted as Award of the Shard of _ Shattered Crystal, the Barony's name is registered as Barony of the Shattered Crystal. As submissions relying on the Branch Name Allowance must use the exact registered name of an SCA branch, we have added the article the for registration.

* Shattered Crystal, Barony of the. Order name Order of the Orb of the Shattered Crystal.

Submitted as Award of the Orb of _ Shattered Crystal, the Barony's name is registered as Barony of the Shattered Crystal. As submissions relying on the Branch Name Allowance must use the exact registered name of an SCA branch, we have added the article the for registration.

* Bardolf Gunwaldtsson. Name correction from Bardolf Gundwaldtsson.

When this name was registered in 2008, it was noted that byname was grandfathered to the submitter; it was registered to him originally in 1989 using his father's given name as a patronymic. However, this given name was registered in 1982 as Gunwaldt and not Gundwaldt. The submitter has requested that his byname reflect the registered spelling of his father's name and we are happy to make this correction.

* Caerthe, Barony of. Order name Ordine de Felicitŕ of Caerthe.

* Ceara ingen Ailchon. Name change from holding name Jennifer of Oertha.

* Cempestrae sjón í Holti. Name change from Cempestrae of Winter's Gate.

Appearing on the Letter of Intent as Holta-Cempestrae sjóna, Kingdom changed it from Cempestrae í Holta-sjona in an attempt to meet the submitter's authenticity request of 'Icelandic/Norwegian/Swedish/Finnish 700-1200'. However, Kingdom's change was more drastic than what is necessary to register the name.

We agree with Kingdom that the orginally submitted byname í Holta-sjona has several errors in construction. While the element sjóna appears in "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (https://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html), an examination of the source material does not reveal this spelling. The Old Icelandic adjective sjóni is masculine but its feminine counterpart is sjón, not sjóna. See the Cover Letter for more information. In addition, the order of the elements is incorrect. Here, the adjective sjón modifies the given name, not the forest. Accordingly, it should follow the given name. The locative byname meaning 'from the forest' is í Holti; the pre-pended version Holta- would not be added to the descriptive byname but rather to the given name. Accordingly, the byname should be rendered as sjón í Holti, which is closer to the original submission than Kingdom's version.

As the change from Cempestrae í Holta-sjona to Cempestrae _ sjón_ í Holti is smaller than the change made by Kingdom, we have made the smaller set of changes to the originally submitted name for registration.

This name does not meet the authenticity request. The given name Cempestrae is the submitter's legal given name; while it is considered neutral in time and place for purposes of registration, such names are not authentic.

The submitter's previous name, Cempestrae of Winter's Gate, is released.

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:

* ĆTHELMEARC returns (to acceptances)

None.

(to Ćthelmearc acceptances) (to Ćthelmearc returns)


* AN TIR returns (to acceptances)

* Andromacha of Lesbos. Badge. Gules, in fess a lion's head couped affronty between and conjoined by the neck to two lion's heads couped addorsed Or.

This badge is returned for violation of SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation: "For charges in a group that do have comparable posture or orientation, the charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation (in cross, combatant, or in pall points outward, for example). A charge group in which postures for different charges must be blazoned individually will not be allowed without period examples of that combination of postures." In this design the posture of the outer two heads needs to be blazoned separately from the center head; conjoining the heads does not remove this issue.

* Elspeth Farre. Badge. (Fieldless) A monster with the head and wings of a wyvern, body and legs of an eagle, and a tail of an anteater rising Or.

This badge is returned for conflict with the badge of Percival de Toulouse, Per fess indented azure and gules, a wyvern passant Or. There is a DC for removing the field, but nothing for the difference between this monster and a wyvern, nor for the nearly identical postures.

* James Shoemaker. Device. Per chevron azure and vert, a sun in its splendour Or and overall a decrescent argent.

This device is returned for lack of identifiability of the field division; as drawn, it is nearly entirely obscured. As the only way to resolve this issue while keeping this blazon would be to shrink the charges so much that the clarity of the primary and overall charges would be lost, we do not believe this can be adequately addressed by pending this for a redraw. Additionally, commenters expressed concern that the arrangement of the sun and crescent are barely overall. On resubmission, the submitter should be prepared to show that period practice supports having one circular charge surmounting another circular charge.

* ANSTEORRA returns (to acceptances)

* Zane Mountaine Gate ap Simonn. Device. Barry wavy azure and argent, on a brown mountain proper a portcullis argent.

This device is returned for the use of a charged mountain issuant from base as a primary charge. By precedent:

In the absence of new evidence of the pattern of charged mountains issuant from base as primary charges, it is still not registerable. [Juan Miguel Cezar, 03/2017, R-Ćthelmearc]

This device is also returned for the use of a brown mountain proper. Stone objects, such as mountains, have grey as their defined proper. Without evidence from period armory that mountains proper could be tinctured brown, this coloration is not registerable.

* ARTEMISIA returns (to acceptances)

* ATENVELDT returns (to acceptances)

* Fionnghuala Coili. Name.

This name is returned as its construction is incomplete and the submitter allowed no major changes. Patronymic-style names in Irish Gaelic do not appear unmarked (i.e., without a relationship marker such as inghean 'daughter'). See SENA Appendix A. In addition, by the rules of standard Gaelic the father's given name should lenite following the patronymic marker inghean. Further, the data for the father's name here has a bar over the terminal i; this mark indicates that the name should have a nasal consonant at the end. In this case, that consonant should be an n. Accounting for the lenition and this mark, the father's name should appear as Choilín. Making the change from Fionnghuala Coili to Fionnghuala inghean Choilín both adds an element and significantly alters the spelling of an element; these are major changes which the submitter does not allow. Therefore, we are forced to return this name.

The submitter's device is registered under the holding name Amanda of Sundragon.

Tinctureless and fieldless badges have the same DC under SENA A5G1e; therefore there is a single DC in each case for being tinctureless/fieldless. Despite being identified in the Ordinary and Armorial as regalia, these items are also protected as badges, and we direct Palimpsest to update the Glossary of Terms to make this clear.

* Paul of Loch Raven. Device. Azure, a raven and a base wavy argent.

This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Eirik of the Two Ravens, Azure, a raven within an annulet argent, with 1 DC for the change in type of secondary charge.

This device was pended on the November 2022 LoAR to allow time to process a blanket permission to conflict with the device of Bertram olfúss, Sable, a raven and a base urdy argent, with which it conflicts. Unfortunately, Eirik's badge was registered in the meantime.

Per SENA A5C1, "when considering armory for purposes of possible conflict, all reasonable blazons for a specific design must be considered." The conjoined plates have the appearance of a single charge (an annulet invected, or a piece of beaded jewelry), and when considered as such this design has a single DC from Jantien's device for change in type of secondary charge.
