THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN REGISTERED:

ÆTHELMEARC

Ceara Cháomhanach. Name.

Eithne ingen Muirgein. Name.

The submitter noted that she believed the given name was pronounced . This is the modern pronunciation for this name, but it is not the pronunciation used in period. In the period appropriate for this spelling (Middle Irish), the pronunciation would be where ñ is the sound of gn in lasagna, and @ is the sound of a in soda.

Emilia Benitez. Name change from Emilia O'Madigan.

Her old name, Emilia O'Madigan, is retained as an alternate name.

Robert l'Etourdi. Name.

Snæbj{o,}rn Hákonarson. Device. Per pale wavy Or and gules, a wolf and a bear combatant counterchanged.

Tristan Gueguen de Rohan. Name and device. Gules, a stag springing and in chief three holly leaves bendwise argent within a bordure ermine.

AN TIR

Ælfwine of Eoferwic. Name and device. Per chevron argent and gules, two griffins passant respectant and a chalice counterchanged.

The submitter requested an authentic 10th C name. This is a fine Old English name for that period.

Amy verch Rychard and Timo Schuzzilwenst. Joint badge. (Fieldless) A swan rousant Or.

Nice badge.

Anna of Glymm Mere. Name.

Denis de Loyer. Badge. (Fieldless) In fess three pavilions conjoined at their bases argent.

Elína Kársdóttir. Device. Or, a robin proper and on a chief gules three apples slipped and leaved Or.

Elric Strangulf. Badge. (Fieldless) A wolf salient Or.

Nice badge.

The submitter has permission to conflict with Ana Moonstar's device, Azure, a wolf rampant reguardant Or, maintaining in its teeth a mullet of eight points argent, standing upon a moon in her plentitude per pale argent and sable.

Gemma Northwode. Name.

The submitter requested a name authentic for 12th-15th C England. This is already an authentic 13th C English name.

Hjamlr inn danski. Name.

The submitter requested an authentic 9th C Danish name. However, the earliest we have been able to date the given name is the 12th C; in Lind, Norsk-Isländska Dopnamn ock Fingerade Namn från Medeltiden, s.n. Hialmr, the form Hialmr is dated to 1187. In addition, we do not have an example of this name from Denmark. Given this, we are unable to fulfill the submitter's request for authenticity.

Rowen O'Ceallachain of Muscraidhe. Reblazon of device. Vert, a torch argent enflamed at the tip proper between two natural panther's gambs palewise erased Or.

Registered in April 1986 with the blazon Vert, a torch argent enflamed at the tip proper between two panther's gambs palewise erased Or, the gambs lack the spots of an heraldic panther. We would normally blazon these as lion's gambs, but as Rowen has a badge with a natural panther and the original paperwork blazoned these as panther's gambs we have chosen to reblazon them as natural panther's gambs. There is no heraldic difference between the gambs of natural panthers and lions. Please see the November 2006 Cover Letter for a discussion on the difference between English, Continental, and natural panthers.

Siobhan de la Roche. Name.

The submitter requested an authentic Irish/French name. While names of mixed etymology do exist, the tendency to spell a name according to the orthographical system of its origin is modern. In period, we would expect such a name to appear in a Gaelic spelling when recorded in a Gaelic document and in a French spelling when recorded in a French document. The Annals of the Four Masters record Early Modern Irish forms of de la Roche as Róitsi (1262 entry), and Róidsi (1260 entry). Siobhan Róitsi would be an authentic Early Modern Irish form of this name. Conversely, a French document would likely record the Gaelic Siobhan as Jehanne; Jehanne is found in Colm Dubh, "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris" (http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/paris.html). We asked the submitter whether she preferred one of these options or whether she preferred the name as submitted; she indicated that she preferred the name as submitted. As submitted, this name is registerable but not authentic. The name mixes Gaelic and French; this is one step from period practice.

Wolf Lang. Name.

ANSTEORRA

Branwen le Baxtere. Badge. (Fieldless) A raven argent maintaining a stalk of wheat fesswise Or.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the badge of Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn, Per chevron argent and vert, in base a falcon close argent.

Catherine Barbary. Name.

The submitter requested an authentic 16th C English name. Bardsley, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames s.n. Barberry, has Henri Barbery in 1609 and Barbary Marbeck in 1581. This suggests that both the submitted form and the form Catherine Barbery would be authentic 16th C English names.

Constance Sayer. Device. Per bend engrailed Or and azure, an open book purpure and a harp Or.

When engrailed, a per bend field division has its points facing to chief.

Eleanor Fairchild. Device. Per pale azure ermined Or and argent, a bend counterchanged.

Genevieve de Courtanvaux. Reblazon of device. Per pale sable and argent, two panthers combatant guardant counterchanged, incensed proper, spotted counterchanged.

Registered in July 2000 with the blazon Per pale sable and argent, two panthers combattant guardant counterchanged, the tincture of the panthers' spots and incensing was not clear. Please see the November 2006 Cover Letter for a discussion on the difference between English, Continental, and natural panthers.

Wolfgang von der Eifel. Name and device. Per fess argent and azure, a demi-eagle issuant from the line of division and three crosses formy counterchanged.

ATENVELDT

Atenveldt, Barony of. Order name Order of the Dogs Jambe and badge (see RETURNS for other order name and badges). (Fieldless) An annulet checky azure and argent fimbriated gules pendant therefrom five hawks' bells Or.

Submitted as Order of the Dogs Gamb, the earliest date for the spelling gamb in the Oxford English Dictionary is 1727. However, the "Middle English Dictionary" (ets.umdl.umich.edu/m/med), s.v. jaumbe, has the spelling chambys in 1500 meaning "leg". In addition, the "Dictionary of the Scots Language" (www.dsl.ac.uk), s.v. Jambe, has jambe meaning "leg" in the latter half of the 15th C. Given this, we would expect jambe to be found in 16th C English. We have changed the name to Order of the Dogs Jambe in order to register it.

This registration is for a heraldic badge, not regalia. A checky collar with bells is not a badge; the proper way to display this is as an annulet with bells as part of an obvious heraldic display, such as on a medallion.

Aziza al-Labu'a bint Ibrahim ibn Rashid al-Rahhala. Badge. (Fieldless) A lion couchant argent charged on the shoulder with a decrescent sable.

Frederick Tinamou the Untamed. Reblazon of badge. Gules, a bald eagle's head and shoulders issuant from base argent sustaining in its beak a sword inverted bendwise sable.

Registered in January 1985 with the blazon Gules, a bald eagle's head and shoulders issuant from base argent holding in its beak a sword inverted bendwise sable, the sword is large enough to be considered a co-primary charge. The sword is not really in a blazonable position as a large portion of it overlies the eagle; this is the best blazon we could derive.

Frederick Tinamou the Untamed. Reblazon of badge. Azure, a bald eagle's head and shoulders issuant from base argent sustaining in its beak a sword inverted bendwise sable.

Registered in January 1985 with the blazon Azure, a bald eagle's head and shoulders issuant from base argent holding in its beak a sword inverted bendwise sable, the sword is large enough to be considered a co-primary charge. The sword is not reall in a blazonable position as a large portion of it overlies the eagle; this is the best blazon we could derive.

Helena de Argentoune. Badge. (Fieldless) A simurgh volant bendwise Or.

Nezhka Radokovaia. Name and device. Per pale sable and gules, two rams combatant between three mullets Or.

Nice 12th C Russian feminine name!

Nikolás Sigurðarson. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Submitted as Nikolás Sieghard, the submitter requested an authentic 10th C Old Norse name. As submitted, the name mixes a 9th C Old Norse given name with a 12th C German byname. Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Viking Names found in the Landnámabók" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html) has Sigurðr, which is the expected Old Norse form of Sieghard. We have changed the name to Nikolás Sigurðarson, a fully Old Norse form, to fulfill the submitter's authenticity request. We note that the originally submitted form is registerable, but one step from period practice.

Raoghnailt Marie Beatrix de la Barbe. Reblazon of device. Per pale argent and azure, an ounce's face sable incensed proper within a bordure crusilly fleury counterchanged.

Registered in October 1992 with the blazon Per pale argent and azure, a panther's face sable incensed proper within a bordure crusilly fleury counterchanged, the cat lacks the spots of an heraldic panther. Please see the November 2006 Cover Letter for a discussion on the difference between English, Continental, and natural panthers.

Shanda MacNeil. Badge. Or semy of annulets sable.

The LoI stated:

Consider Evan Little: Or, hurty., if the submission were alternately blazoned as Or semy of bezants fimbriated sable. Although an annulet has an independent heraldic existence it is still a roundel voided; still both are distinct period charges, and between the type and tinctures, we hope that this is clear.

This is not a conflict - there is at least a CD between a roundel and an annulet and another CD for the tincture of the charges. Just as Or, a bend Or fimbriated sable appears to be two bendlets, not a fimbriated bend, Or semy of bezants fimbriated sable appears to be annulets, not fimbriated bezants. Given the fact that, as the LoI noted, an annulet is a distinct heraldic charge we see no reason to treat the charge as anything other than an annulet.

Sha'ul of Joppa. Name (see RETURNS for badge).

Submitted as Sha'ul of Yoppa, no documentation was submitted and none found suggesting that Yoppa is a period form for the place known as Jaffa in period. The form of the placename closest to the submitted form is found in the King James Bible, Jonah 1:3 as Joppa. We have changed the name to Sha'ul of Joppa in order to register it.

Tomas mac Aedain. Name and badge. Argent, four crosses formy two and two and a bordure gules.

Submitted as Thomas Mac Aedain, the submitter requested an authentic 9th C Scottish name. At that time, the language appropriate for someone surnamed mac Aedain would be Middle Gaelic; we would also expect the language spoken and written in Scotland and Ireland to be fairly interchangeable in the 9th C. The Annals of Ulster, whose orthography is largely Middle Irish, the form appropriate for the 9th C, lists the name Tomas in an entry for 808. In addition, we would expect the first letter of the patronymic marker to be in lowercase. We have changed the name to Tomas mac Aedain to fulfill the submitter's request for authenticity.

Please advise the submitter to draw the crosses larger.

ATLANTIA

Aldric Elys of Kiddall Hall. Name and device. Per pall inverted sable, vert and Or, in base a Maltese cross sable.

There was some question whether the locative byname of Kiddall Hall was registerable; by precedent, compound locative bynames were not registerable in English:

The name uses a compound locative as a byname, but no documentation was submitted and none found showing any English surnames that evolved from a full compound place-name rather than just the first part of the place-name. Such bynames were declared unregisterable for Spanish names in 2002:

"Lacking documentation that compound forms of placenames like Santiago de Compostela were used in locative bynames, this cannot be registered. [Beatriz de Santiago de Compostela, 01/02, R-Caid]

"Barring evidence of locative bynames formed from full compound placenames in English, such names cannot be registered.[Lyneyea of Aston-upon-Trent, March 2005]

However, Rowel supplied three examples of such compound placenames from Gray, Irvine and J. E. Gethyn-Jones, editors, The Registers of the Church of St. Mary's, Dymock, 1538-1790: Margery Wills of Gamage Hall in 1570/1, Wyllyam Hill of Gamag Hall in 1586, and Edward Hill de Gamag Halle in 1603. Given this, compound locative English bynames of the form [place] + Hall are registerable.

Alyna of the Ilex. Badge. (Fieldless) Three holly leaves conjoined in pall vert, fructed gules.

This badge does not conflict with the device for Elswyth of Bery, Argent, in pale three holly leaves vert stems conjoined in pile issuant from six torteaux conjoined three, two and one, which is reblazoned elsewhere in this letter. There is a CD for fieldlessness and another for changing the co-primary roundels to maintained charges. There is not a visual conflict between these two pieces of armory as the orientation of the leaves differs and because Elswyth's roundels are clearly co-primary charges.

Amye Elizabeth Barrington. Name.

Crois Brigte, Canton of. Badge. (Fieldless) A Saint Brigid's cross argent.

Eleanor de Montfort of Atlantia. Device. Per bend argent and vert, in cross a roundel between four crescents, horns outwards, all counterchanged.

This was pended on the August 2006 LoAR.

Elwynne Liers. Name and device. Purpure, an owl between three open books argent.

Gaius Tascius Severus Fabianus. Name.

Giuseppe Calabro. Device. Purpure, an olive tree couped and in chief an increscent and a decrescent argent.

Glynis Gwynedd. Badge. (Fieldless) On a tree eradicated proper a harp Or.

Helwynn Ivelchild. Device. Vert, a sheep passant argent maintaining with its forehoof a drop spindle Or, threaded argent, and a chief embattled Or.

Jean Maurice le Marinier. Name.

Leofwynn æt Sancte Eadmundes Byrig. Name.

Rhiannon verch David ap Madyn. Name and device. Per bend argent and azure, a pheon and a griffin passant counterchanged.

Rhiannon is an SCA-compatible Welsh name.

Rivka Sycheva. Name.

This name mixes Hebrew and Russian; this is one step from period practice.

Svana in kyrra Haraldsdóttir. Device. Vert, a swan rousant to sinister and in chief two valknuts argent.

Victor the Wanderer. Device. Azure, a bar gemel wavy argent between a demi-sun and a compass star Or.

William the True. Reblazon of device. Gules, a winged ounce passant contourny Or, incensed proper, a chief urdy Or.

Registered in July 1999 with the blazon Gules, a winged panther passant contourny head facing sinister, a chief urdy Or, the cat lacks the spots of an heraldic panther.
