Minutes of the March 2000 Meeting

[Note: These submissions appear on the Aug 2000 LoAR]

Notes and Announcements

Crescent called the meeting to order at 11:15.

Next month is Crown Tourney in Calafia. Field heralds will be needed. If you are not an experienced field herald, that doesn't mean you can't be of use. Get the experience, there will be people there to help you. Their Majesties have reinstituted the name requirement, so we will probably have a heavy load of submissions at the next meeting (4/9/2000). Submissions returned this meeting are not considered in submission, but those returned next meeting will be.

Crescent has added to the minutes what is known as the Argent Snail Insta-Boing List. It's a list of things that mean automatic return. Keep it handy. It isn't in the herald's handbook.

Dietmar has found a bookseller who has Black and Woulfe for sale in hardback. They might be able to do a discounted order. Contact Dietmar if you are interested. He is also organizing an order of Gier Basi. He also has copies of his handout from the German Naming practices class.

In July, Gyldenholt is having their 20th anniv. It will have 4 tourneys, an archery tourney, a quest. He'll be looking for help in heraldry. Event is 6/30 - 7/2.

The Kingdom of Caid has essentially grabbed South America. There is a shire in Brazil that is in contact with appropriate Kingdom officers. They have sent forward some arms. We may have an incipient shire there soon.

Trident is looking for people to help at Potrero War the last weekend of May. Heralds are needed to cry camp at 7am (Saturday) and 8am (Sunday).

Crescent is changing the submission requirements. We will now require 2 black and white line drawings instead of 1. It has become apparent that there is a need to keep one copy in the kingdom files.

The college is in receipt of Woordenboek van Voornamen by Dr. J. van der Schaar. Given names of Netherlands and Friese. Donated by Jeanne Marie Lacroix. Thank you, Jeanne Marie.

Please remember, when submitting email or web-based documentation, you need to include the entire mail or web page, with headers.


(Branch not noted)

Angus an Amhas de Angeil's (New name and device)

Per bend sinister gules and sable, three lions in bend argent

Name:

The name means Angus the wild of Angels. Angus, Withycombe, p. 25, undated, Black, p. 23, dated to 1150.

an is the article, the.

Amhas, - we can not find documentation for this name in period. The submitter indicates that he wants the name to be Gaelic.

De is the preposition of.

Angeilis - we can not find documentation for this name. There are several discrepancies between the submitter's forms. We are unsure what the submitter is trying to do. There is insufficient documentation.

NAME RETURNED FOR DOCUMENTATION
DEVICE PARTIALLY CHECKED AND PENDED FOR LACK OF A NAME


Altavia, Barony of

Eileen Dover (Kingdom Resub of name and device)

Vert, two badgers rampant respectant argent marked sable between in chief a roundel checky sable and argent and in base a dance Or

Name:
The submitter's name was originally returned for lack of documentation. She has since provided a copy of her driver's liscence and is utilizing the mundane name allowance to document Eileen. Dover is found in Reaney and Wilson on pg. 140 dating to 1086.
Device:
The device was pended due to the return of the device. Since then, the submitter has enlarged the badgers making them definitely the primary charges and has more properly drawn the dance and the checks on the roundel.

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL


Angels, Barony of

Gwineth of Iona (New name)

Name:
Gwyneth is a proposed anglicized spelling of Gwenddydd found in Gruffudd on pg. 50. It is also found in Withycombe on pg. 143 but with no indication of medieval usage. Gwineth is found in Morgan in Morgan on pg. 118 under the heading of Gwynedd dated to 1577. Iona is found in Columbia Lippincott on 842 as an island off the coast of Scotland.

NAME APPROVED (AS CHANGED) AND SENT TO LAUREL

Líadnán mac Ruaidrí (New name)

Name:
Líadnán is found O'Corrain on pg. 122. Other (pre-12th C) spelling meaning, perhaps "grey lad". There are two saints of this name, the best known being St. Liadnan of Fore whose feast day is 5 February. The name could be anglicized Leanan. Ruaidri' would be the appropriate (pre 12th C) spelling of his dad's name, meaning "great king, red king". On pg. 158 of O'Corrain, Ruaidri was a favorite name in medieval Ireland Reaidri na Saide Buide, kind of Connacht, died in 118 the beset anglicized form is Rory. Liadnán mac Ruaidrí or, anglicized, Leanan MacRory. Woulfe, pg. 199, confirms that the ending of Ruaidrí does not change when the genative is formed. [The Gaelic spelling requires the accents; the brace notation í is used in ASCII to correctly indicate "place the accent following the letter directly over that lettter" - in case of "i", replacing the dot with the accent. The braces do not show up in the actual spelling.] This Gaelic spelling would be OK for 8th C. Pronunciation would be generally like the anglicized version.

NAME APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL


Calafia, Barony of

Ceridwen Sais (New name)

Submitted as Ceridwyn Sais

NAME RETURNED FOR FURTHER RESEARCH, BADGE RETURNED FOR LACK OF IDENTIFICATION OF SECONDARY CHARGE


Starkhafn, Barony of

Starkhafn, Barony of: Order of the Illumination of Starkhafn (kingdom name appeal and New badge)

Azure, issuant from a cup argent a flame proper

Name:

The Crescent Herald's analysis in the CoH January 2000 minutes states that Illumination is the action of illuminating, and as such is unlikely to have been used as a name element.

The first definition in the OED for illumination is The action of illumination; the fact or condition of being illuminated; a lighting up, a supplying of light. However, the first example given in the OED under this definition actually shows the word being used as a noun

1563 W. Fulke Meteors (1640) II Fyre scattered in the ayre, or illuminations, are generated in the lowest region of the ayre.

An illumination as a physical light (or in this case meteor) is an acceptable period name element. In the Laurel Queen at Arms' May 1999 LoAR, she addressed the topic of acceptable order names

[ACTION NOT GIVEN, BUT WAS PRESUMABLY FORWARDED TO LAUREL AS IT IS ON THE 08/00 LOAR (RETURNS)]

Starkhafn, Barony of: Order of the Sparkes of Starkhafn (Order name and badge)

Per chevron azure estencely argent, and sable, a chevron, a bordure argent

Name:

A question was raised as to the appropriateness of the order name. Many period order names were formed from heraldic charges. Estencely is also known as a semy of sparks, so it is acceptable as an order name.

Fire and meteors are both known period heraldic charges, and thus should be acceptable as an order name. By correlation, Illumination (used in the sense of a fire or meteor) should also be acceptable. Please accept this analysis as acceptable justification for this order name and forward our submission to the Laurel Queen at Arms for consideration. Further conversation during the Chapter produced the argument that illumination is used in period to name a physical object, namely the light of a comet. It may be argued, based on the March, 1994 registration of the Order of the Lux Caidis, which is similarly abstract, that "illumination is not too abstract to be used as an order name."

Device:
The badge is in conflict with William of Sark, 1/73?, Sable a flame proper.

NAME APPEAL FORWARDED TO LAUREL WITH SUPPORT FROM THE COLLEGE, BADGE RETURNED FOR CONFLICT

Starkhafn, Barony of: Starkhafn Ambassador of Courtesy (New order name)

Name:
No documentation provided that this is a proper order name.

Reputed founder of the Russian Empire.
Device:
Crescent cites Morrigan Fitz-Rolf, 10/80?, [Fieldless] two polar bears combatant proper gorged of belled collars Or.

DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Siwan ferch Rhys ap Hywel (New personal badge)

[Fieldless] A daisy Or seeded sable within and conjoined to a wreath of holly vert fructed gules

Badge:
The badge runs afoul of precedents from Da'ud 2; to whit "the wreath of holly here would inevitably be taken to be a laurel wreath the berries are just not that prominent on a holly wreath and, given the wide variations in rendition of the wreath required for group arms, the leaf shapes are not distinctive enough to make it obvious that this is not a laurel wreath" (LoAR Aug 87, p. 11).
