Minutes of the 10 June 2001 Meeting

[Note: These submissions appear on the Nov 2001 LoAR]

Notes and Announcements

The meeting started at approximately 11:30. In order to become better acquainted with some of the new faces at the meeting, we began with a round of introductions. Crescent read the acceptances and Returns from the April LoAR and congratulated Martin de Thalassa, who was present, on his newly registered device. Crescent is looking for a volunteer to take over writing the CP article "The Trumpet's Voice" and another to take over writing the Laurel Letters. Sable Fret asked for help at CP Prize Tourney, which will be held July 7th. Golden Antelope asked for help with heraldry at Darkwell War, which will be held July 27-29. Crescent remarked that we had a heavy load to process and suggested that we get underway...so we did.

Altavia, Barony of

Dechtire ingen Ruairc (New Name)

Name:
Dechtire is a feminine Irish name found on http://britannica.com under the article Cú Chulainn. She is noted as the mother of the hero. In addition, the Táin Bó Cúalnge which dates to 1150, tells of the exploits of Cú Chulainn. A copy of the webpage http://vassun.vassar.edu/~sttaylor/Cooley/Exploits.html page 2 is included, giving a side-by-side translation. Submitted with the patronymic prefix nic, we have replaced it with ingen, which we believe is more appropriate. Ruairc is found undated under the heading Ruarcc on page 158 of ÓC&M, which says "from this rare early name derives the surname Ó Ruairc."

Name:
Abigail is a heading spelling on page 1 of Withycombe, which says: "It came into use in England in the 16th C..." Chandler is a heading spelling on page 90 of Reaney & Wilson, with dated examples le Candeler 1274 and le Chandeler 1285. Chandler is also a heading spelling on page 146 of Black, which says: "From ME chaundeler,...a maker of candles...The London Livery Company of Tallow Chandlers was incorporated in 1463." Caithness is a heading spelling on page 125 of Black. Dated spellings include Catnes 1454, Cathnes 1650 and Caithness 1669.

NAME RETURNED FOR LACK OF DOCUMENTATION

David of Caithness (Kingdom Resub Device)

Device returned at Kingdom in Sep./Oct. 2000.

Geoffrey of Ormond (New Name and Device)

Per fess sable and azure, a [widget] argent

Name:
Geoffrey is dated to 1318-1325 in "Names from Fourteenth Century Foix", (Cateline de la Mor, Academy of St. Gabriel: http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/foix.html). Ormond is asserted to be an earldom in Ireland dating to the late 15th century, but the submitter has not provided substantive evidence supporting it and we were unable to document it. No copies of the documentation were provided with the submission.
Device:
We are unable to blazon the primary charge. It seems to be an attempt at a cross formy with five arms, but we cannot justify the use of a five-armed cross as a period charge. In addition, we found what would likely be a visual conflict with SCA armory [Titus of Wormwood - Feb '85: Purpure, a cinquefoil slipped and singly leaved argent].

NAME RETURNED FOR LACK OF DOCUMENTATION
DEVICE RETURNED FOR CONFLICT AND LACK OF NAME

Per bend sinister vert and argent, a cross crosslet counterchanged.

Name:
Maykin is an undocumented variant of Maikin, found as a given name dated 1212-23 on pages 294-295 of Reaney & Wilson under the heading Makin, Makins, et al. We note that exchanging the letter i with y is well documented in English, e.g.: Bainard = Baynard, Deie = Deye, Fairer = Feyrere, Haie = Haye, May = Mai, etc. (R&W s.n. Baynard, Day, Fairer, Hay, May.) Croft is a heading spelling found on page 117 of Reaney & Wilson, dated to 1361; atta Crofte is dated to 1353 on the same page.
Device:
No armory conflicts found. Crescent and the College members present say "beautiful piece of armory."

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Vinzenz Bach (Laurel Resub Name, New Device)

Per bend azure and gules, an eagle's head erased and a horse's head erased contourny Or

Name:
Laurel returned the submitter's original name request Ricohard Bach in March 1999 for conflict with the name of author Richard Bach. Vinzenz is found as an undated heading spelling on page 581 of Bahlow. Various spellings are also found under the heading Fietz(e), a Silesian nickname for saint Vincent, on page 134. Dated spellings include Vicencz 1559, and Vieczegk 1594. Bach is found on page 26 of Bahlow, dating to the 1300's in such locative bynames as bi dem bach, an der bach, im bach, etc. We note that on page 84 of Webster's Biographical Dictionary, under the family name Bach, is listed Hans Bach, the great-grandfather of J.S. Bach, who died in 1626 when his eldest son Johannes was 22 years old. We therefore surmise that Hans was born in the 1500's.
Device:
No armory conflicts were found.

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Wolfgang Neuschel der Grau (New Household Name: Neuschel Consort of Musicke, Change of Device)

Gules, two dragon's jambes erased in saltire argent

Name:

Registered in March 1999.

Neuschel is the submitter's registered surname, which is found in Bahlow, page 388 under the heading Nuschke, dated to 1370. The submitter documents the phrase Consort of Musicke from The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, Vol 6, Sadie ed., page 329. Under the heading "2. Mixed Consorts" the authors write:

Indeed, the earliest recorded example of the English word 'consort' in a musical sense is in George Gascoigne's description of a spectacle presented to Queen Elizabeth at Kenilworth in July 1575...:'From thence her Majestie passing yet further on the brydge, Protheus appeared, sitting on a Dolphyns backe... With in the which Dolphyn a Consort of Musicke was secretely placed, the which sounded, and Protheus clearing his voyce, sang.'

The OED entry for consort on page 868 dates the meaning of a group of musicians playing together to 1587. In addition, the OED entry for music on page 783 dates the spelling of musicke to 1588 within a sonnet by Byrd.

Device:
If the new device is registered, the submitter requests that his previous device, Azure, three sackbuts inverted within a bordure argent, be transferred to a badge associated with this new household name. We note that the default orientation for a dragon's jambe is claws to chief. There is a close call in SCA armory, [Randwulf Widefarer, Jan '96, [Fieldless] Two dragon's jambes erased inverted in saltire argent], but the submitted arms are clear with 2 CDs by X.4.a - Field Difference and X.4.h. - Posture Changes. Crescent wishes to advise the submitter that he use caution to make the erasing at the lower ends of the jambes clearly distinguishable from the claws at the upper ends.

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL


Gallavally, Canton of (Dreiburgen)

Mary Dedwydd verch Gwallter (Kingdom Resub Device)

Argent, a boar (posture?) azure, on a chief vert, 3 open books argent

Name:
Registered in Nov. 2000
Device:
This device was returned for redraw in June 2000. Unfortunately, the current submission has made no substantial changes from the submission returned last year. The posture of the boar must be made clearly passant, courant, or statant, and the books redrawn so that they are in the standard heraldic depiction and not in trian aspect.

DEVICE RETURNED FOR REDRAW


Sancti Geronimi, Pagus (Canton of Dreiburgen)

Sancti Geronimi, Collegium (New Badge)

No armory conflicts found. A petition from the populace is included.

BADGE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL


Dun Or, Barony of

Dun Or, Barony of (Kingdom Resub Badge)

Argent, a poppy gules, seeded Or

Name:
Registered in May 1986. Badge returned Oct. 2000.
Device:
This is essentially a four-petaled rose. This therefore conflicts with the House of Lancaster, [Fieldless] a rose gules. Da'ud Precedent 2.2: "As with garden roses, a 'rose is a rose', whether of five, six, or four petals." [Eleanor DeBroke 10/95, page 4]

BADGE RETURNED FOR CONFLICT

Harsha Varnum (Laurel Resub Name, New Device)

Sable, a saltire fleury Or between, in cross, an escallop argent and three bezants

Name:
Laurel returned the original submission of Harsha Aditya the Infidel for presumption in Sep.? 1980, citing conflict with the Indian emperor Harsha, documented by the submitter (from R.C. Majumdar, Advanced History of India, 1967, pages 148 and 154), where he cites a 7th C emperor Harsha, and later names one of Harsha's great-grandsons Jayadeva, who married the daughter of one Harshadeva, clearly not the same Harsha aforementioned. We note that -deva is a suffix meaning "giver", and Harsh means "happiness". The king is mentioned in Webster's Biographical on page 671, where his full name is listed as Harshavardhana. This clearly shows the use of the name Harsha as a prototheme, or a combination name. We assert that the name element Harsha as given later to Harshadeva clearly illustrates the use of the name by someone other than the king. The submitter asserts that Varnum is an epithet meaning "shield", and that such an epithet would be appropriate for an Indian warrior (he cites personal communication with Swami Atmajananda, Ramakrishna Order, Washington D.C.). We have no resources to verify the meaning of Varnum and appeal to the College for its aid in this effort.
Device:
We recommend to the submitter that he draw all of the charges bigger and bolder, especially the fleurs at the ends of the saltire. No armory conflicts found.

It is also found on pages 77-8 of Withycombe, which says "The name of the great king of Persia occurs in the Old Testament." Samarra is an ancient Assyrian city on the Tigris river, north of Baghdad (modern Iraq), documented from the National Geographic Atlas of World History, ©1997, Daniel J. Boorstin. Page 1657 of the CLG states "The ruins of the great anc. city of Samarra extend 20 mi. along the river. Abbasid caliphs from 836 to 876. The 17th-cent. mosque with its golden dome is sacred..."

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Ian was determined SCA compatible per the precedents of Jaelle of Armida - [Ian McTavish, LoAR 4/97]. MacKinnie is documented under the heading spelling MacKenna and dated to 1609 in Black, page 525. This name conflicts with Iain MacCoinnich, registered in May 1989.

NAME RETURNED FOR CONFLICT

Stephania von Graz (New Name and Device)

Per fess gules and Or, a lion dormant and an eagle, head to sinister, counterchanged

Name:
Stephania is found as a heading spelling in Morlet on page 108. Graz is a city in Austria, found undated in CLG on page 712. The Encyclopædia Britannica (1955, vol. 10: "Game to Gunm", page 671) says that the town "was an important fortified stronghold from pre-Roman times" and that "it is first definitely mentioned in a document of A.D. 881..."
Device:
No armorial conflicts found.

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Su of the Silver Horn (Release of badge and re-registration of badge)

Sable, a bat-winged cat rampant to sinister, wings addorsed vert, fimbriated Or, holding in its forepaws the strings of a drinking horn argent

Device:
When her current device was registered (Sable, in fess a drinking horn bendwise and a flower of four heart-shaped petals saltirewise argent, barbed vert, seeded sable, within a bordure argent surmounted by another vert - July '83), the submitter intended for her then current device to be released (Azure, in fess a drinking horn bendwise argent and a flower of four heart-shaped petals saltirewise Or, barbed vert, seeded argent, within a bordure Or surmounted by another sable). Instead, that device was retained as a badge, and her badge was released. The submitter would like to fix this error by releasing her current badge and re-registering the badge: Sable, a bat-winged cat rempant to sinister...

ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL


Heatherwyne, Shire of

Heatherwyne, Shire of (Name Correction Laurel)

Name:
Dame Elsbeth has checked Laurel records and all submitted forms from the shire have the -wyne spelling of the name. There is no indication of why the name was recorded in the Ordinary with the -wine spelling. In personal communication, Elsbeth Laurel advised that a formal request be submitted for correction. We note that exchanging the letter i with y is well documented in English, e.g.: Blacwin = Blakwyne, Gladewine = Gladewyne, Knihtwine = Knythewyn, Redwyne = Redwin, Wine = Wyne, etc. (R&W s.n. Blackwin, Gladwin, Knightwin, Readwin, Wine)

NAME CORRECTION APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Ariane le Vyolour (New Name)

Name:
Ariane is found undated under the heading Ariadne on page 31 of Withycombe, which says "used in Italy and France." No documentation was supplied with the name, and the College has no idea what the submitter intends the byname to mean. There is some concern that the byname is close to the French verb violer "to rape;" violeur means "the rapist," which would violate rule IV.1 - Offensive Names.

NAME RETURNED FOR LACK OF DOCUMENTATION

Ekaterina ów Pultusk (New Name)

Name:
Submitted with the given name spelled Ekatrina, the submitter cites Wickenden, but didn't include a page number, and we cannot find the desired spelling. We have substituted the heading spelling Ekaterina, which is dated to 1533 on page 80 of Wickenden, 3rd ed. Pultusk is a town in Warsaw province of Poland of medieval origin. Found on page 1531 of CLG: "Has old castle, once residence of bishops of Plock". The Caidan CoH was unable to document the Polish translation for the preposition "of" and would appreciate assistance with this from the CoA.

NAME APPROVED AS CHANGED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Jarucha Delamare (Laurel Resub Name)

Name:

The submitter's name was returned in the April 2001 LoI, with the comment:

While combining Russian with French is registerable, it is a weirdness. The use of double given names in Russian was also ruled a weirdness by Jaelle of Armida in June 1997. The name is therefore not registerable as it is. We would have dropped the second given name, but since the submitter does not accept major changes, we could not do this.

The submitter has therefore dropped the middle name per Laurel's suggestion. Jarucha is found on page 116 of Wickenden, 3rd ed. under the heading Iarukha, dated to 1553. Delamare is a French surname found as an undated heading in Dauzat, page 185.

NAME APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Lassar Fhína ingen uí Ceallaigh (New Name)

Name:
Submitted as: Lasarfina nic Kelly. Lassar Fhína is found as a heading spelling in ÓC&M, page 121 and dated to the later middle ages. It is Anglicized as Lassarina and Lasrina. Submitted with the patronymic prefix nic, we have replaced it with ingen uí, which we believe is more appropriate. Ceallaigh is found in MacLysaght on page 175, and is undated in the ancient spelling. Lasarfina is asserted to be found dated to 1282 in O'Brien: "Feminine Given Names in the Annals of Connacht 1224-1544". The name Kelly is the Anglicized form of O' Ceallaigh, and is therefore incompatible with the Gaelic patronymic prefix.

NAME SUBMISSION WITHDRAWN BY THE SUBMITTER

Tigernach ÓCatháin (New Name and Device)

Per pale sable and azure, on a chief Or, a tiger's head erased contourny sable

Name:
Submitted as Tigernaig O'Cathain, but no documentation was provided with the submission. Tigernaig is found as a genitive spelling in "100 Most Popular Men's Names in Early Medieval Ireland" (Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn, Academy of St. Gabriel: http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/irish100/) Tigernach is a heading spelling dated to 1088 on page 170 of ÓC&M. We have put the given name back into nominative case. Cathán is an undated heading spelling on page 47 of ÓC&M, which says "it gave the surname Ó Catháin (O Kane), the name of one of the most prominent Ulster families down to the plantation."
Device:
No armory conflicts found.

NAME AND DEVICE APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

V{o,}rsa-Ívarr mannvitsbrekka (New Name)

NAME APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

William Kendrick (New Name)

Name:
William is found as a heading in Withycombe on page 293-4, and that spelling of the name is dated to the Middle Ages. Under the heading Williams, et al., on page 493 of Reaney & Wilson, Richard William is dated to 1279, and Rauf le fuiz William is dated to 1299, both obviously used as patronymics. Kendrick is dated to 1593 as a variant of the heading Kenrick, found in Reaney & Wilson, on page 263.

NAME APPROVED AND SENT TO LAUREL

Under the heading Caitrín, Woulfe adds "the name of a celebrated virgin and martyr of Alexandria, brought into Europe by the crusaders." Caitlin is also found undated in Withycombe pages 186-187 under the heading Katharine, Katherine, Catharine, Catherine: "The Irish Caitlin, from Middle English Catlin, is now often used in England." Watkyns is found under the heading Watkins in Reaney & Wilson on page 478, dated to 1327.

Name:
Konrad is found in Bahlow on page 308 and "is the Latin documentary form of the old German royal name Kunrad ...(from Middle High German Kuonrat, the popular form in the Middle Ages)." The German locative preposition is von. Falkenberg is a medieval German castle mentioned in the CLG on page 601, but not dated.

Vert, a serpent coiled erect within a bordure Or

Name:
registered in Jan. 2000
Device:
As submitted, the snake is not coiled erect as the submitter indicates, and is not in a blazonable posture. If drawn correctly, this would be in conflict: Gwynaeth Angharad of Glamorgan - April 1985: Vert, a cobra coiled erect affronty within an orle wavy Or. If redrawn, there is a potential conflict with Guillaume au Serpent d'Or - August 1981: Sable, a serpent coiled and nowed within a bordure Or.

Justin Eachus (Kingdom Resub Name)

Name:
This name was apparently returned in May 2001 for lack of documentation. The submitter provided a report from the Academy of St. Gabriel. Per their letter, Justin is documented to 1639. The earliest reference for Eachus is dated to 1672. It is the opinion of the Academy that this is a plausible period name, however we cannot accept the surname without evidence of period use.

NAME RETURNED FOR LACK OF DOCUMENTATION


Wintermist, Shire of

Catlin ÓCaffoe (New Name)

Name:
