Minutes of the 27 February 2005 Meeting

[Note: These submissions appear on the July 05 LoAR; two pended items are on the Feb 06 LoAR ]

Notes and Announcements

Meeting commenced at 11:05AM.

In attendance were: Jeanne Marie Crescent, Lachlan Dolphin, Illuminada Silver Trumpet, Selene Aurum, Vivienne de Lampérière, Kurt Sommelier, Damien Sable Fret, Diego Rivera de Soldano, Jared Alexandre Blaydeaux, Rotheric Kynith, Catherine de Winter, Aurora Cecilia Iacobucci, Santin Gold Forest, Edgar Chiswick, Thomas Brownwell.

The schedule for the rest of the year is as follows: March 20th, (April Crown name/armory submissions due), April 24th, May 8th (changed to avoid conflict with Altavia Anniversary), June 26th (changed to avoid mundane conflict), July 10th, August 7th, September 11th (Sept. Crown name/armory submissions due), October 2nd, November 6th, and December 4th.

Crescent announced that she will probably be stepping down at Coronation/QC in order to assume the duties of Wreath Queen of Arms. This depends on the BoD decision at the April meeting. Lachlan Dolphin is her successor.

The only signers on the Caid CoH checking account (SCA, Inc – College of Heralds) should be Deborah Fox, Martha Ranc, Mark Wroth, Ian McIntosh, and Stephen Kelly.

Items marked * were submitted at Festival of the Rose; items marked † were submitted at Estrella. Approved submissions will be forwarded to Laurel on the March 28, 2005 Letter of Intent


Caid, Kingdom of

Caid, Kingdom of. New Badge for Collegium Caidis. Azure, a pomegranate slipped and leaved Or, a bordure embattled argent.

[Name] Kingdom of Caid was registered 02/05; Collegium Caidis was registered 03/80. While not apparent from the Armorial, Collegium Caidis is not a branch, it is the kingdom college similar to the universities several other kingdoms have.

[Armory] The submitters' wish to release their current badge, Argent, a pomegranate slipped and leaved Or, seeded and fimbriated gules, within a bordure azure, registered 03/82.

Badge approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Altavia, Barony of

Gwenfrewi ferch Gwillym Rhoslyn. New Name Change from Gwenfrewi ferch Dafydd Rhoslyn.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a Welsh feminine name. If this is passed, the submitter wishes to release her old name, Gwenfrewi ferch Dafydd Rhoslyn, which was registered 01/98.

The name elements Gwenfrewi and Rhoslyn are grandfathered to the submitter.

Gwillym is found in R&W (s.n. Gwilliam, p. 209), dated to 1391.

The documentation for the original name came from Gruffydd, Welsh Names for Children, and an email message from Tangwystyl verch Morgan Glasvryn stating that the pattern <given name> <patronymic> <locative> is found five times in the Merioneth Lay Subsidy Roll of 1292.

Name approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Jaida Amat Allah bint Khaldun. New Name and Device. Per saltire vert and Or, a natural dolphin haurient to sinister purpure and a wolf rampant sable.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a feminine name. She will accept minor but not major changes, and if the name must be changed she cares most about the meaning "Jaida servant of God, daughter of Khaldun".

All name elements are from "Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices" by Da'ud ibn Auda (http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/arabic-naming2.htm).

Jaida is a feminine ism.

Amat Allah is a laqab, meaning female servant of Allah.

bint Khaldun is a nasab; the article notes "Many historical personages are more familiar to us by their nasab than by their ism: e.g., the historian ibn Khaldun.

[Armory] We note that all heralds in attendance were able to recognize that the sable charge was definitely a canine (dog, wolf, fox etc.) so we are not requesting a redraw.

Name and device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Sigvaldr Hauksson. New Name.

[Name] Submitted as Sigvald Hauksen. The submitter is interested a 10th C. masculine Viking name. He will accept all changes, and if the name must be changed he cares most about the language/culture. The submitter claimed that Sigvald Hauksen was documented by the vikinganswerlady (Gunnvor) but did not include a copy of the e-mail. Gunnvor has graciously provided documentation; attached is an e-mail with her research to provide the 10th C Viking name that the submitter requests. We have changed the name to match the documentation provided by Gunnvor. The text of her e-mail is included below.

The second element in <Sigvaldi> is a weak form of the more common <-valdr>. Given the much greater distribution of Viking Age names in <-valdr> than in <-valdi>, and the many medieval forms shown in Lind, it's pretty certain that <Sigvaldr> was also in use in the Viking Age, and could, in any case, be constructed under RfS II.3 (http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/rfs.html#2.3):

Academy of St. Gabriel Report #977 (http://www.s-gabriel.org/977)

"<Haukr> is the standard spelling of a name also seen as <Haucr>, <Havkr>, <Havcr>, <Havckr>, and <Ha/ukr>. [1] (The slash represents an accent over the previous letter.) In these spellings, the <v> is just another way to write <u>. These are all pronounced approximately \HOWKr\, with the <r> almost silent. The common spelling of <Haukr> appears in the Landnamabo/k, which was written around 1200 but deals with events of some 200 years earlier. There was no single correct spelling for the name. Spelling was a system for writing sounds, and it is completely unsurprising that there were many ways to write the same sequence of sounds. Any of the spellings above would be a correct way to spell your name." (Note [1] is E.H. Lind, cited above).

The genitive form is indeed <Hauks>.

Either <Sigvaldr Hauksson> or <Sigvaldi Hauksson> are good Viking Age constructions.

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel.


Angels, Barony of

Aurora Cecilia Iacobucci. New Name.

[Name] The submitter marked no boxes.

Aurora is found in de Felice Nomi (s.n. Aurora, p. 82), and is noted as a medieval feminine given name.

Cecilia is found in de Felice Nomi (s.n. Cecilia, p. 103), dated to the 3rd C. We have changed the submitted spelling Cecelia to match the documentable form.

Iacobucci is found in de Felice Cognomi (s.n. Giacomi, p. 136). This form is undated. The earliest this name was found in an Internet search was the mid-1700s.

Name returned for lack of documentation.


*Jamie Muir. New name.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a masculine name. He will accept minor but not major changes and if changes must be made, he cares most about the language/culture ("Scots – 15th Century").

Jamie is found in Black (header, p. 382) undated, where it states that Jamie is a diminutive of James. To date its use in period we must turn to the patronymic, i.e. son of Jamie, in Black (s.n. Jamieson, p. 382) with the dated spellings Jamisone 15th C and Jameyson 1465.

Muir is found as the header in Black (p. 617). Period spellings include Myrre 1541 and Muyr 1539. On the same page under Muirhead, Muir- is included as a name element. e.g., Sir William Muirhead of Lachope end of 14th century, and Muirheyd 1527, and Muirhouse 1427. Given the citations under Muirhead, we believe Muir to be a valid period spelling.

Name approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Richard the Wevere. New Device. Vert bezanty, in pale a fleam and a pavilion Or.

[Name] His name was registered 05/04.

[Armory] This form was reduced at some point prior to submission. The emblazon is not so small that it must be returned for this reason.

Device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Rotheric Kynith. Laurel Resub Badge. Argent, on a roundel azure a wolf sejant ululant argent.

[Name] Submitter's name was registered 05/02.

[Armory] The submitter's original submission, with an identical blazon was returned by Laurel 05/04:

There is a returnable problem with the form. The available emblazon space on the form on which this was submitted is too small, being significantly less than the standard diameter of 5 inches specified by the Administrative Handbook.

In addition, consensus at the meeting was that the roundel in this case is too large and gives too much impression of a field and a bordure. As a result this must be returned for a redraw. This problem can be corrected by drawing the roundel rather smaller in proportion to the field (which, in absolute terms, would not be that much smaller than this one when using a form with a properly sized emblazon area).

This submission fixes the defects of the previous submission.

Noted on the form as a fieldless badge, the submitter was presented at the meeting and verified that it really is roundel on an argent field.

Badge approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Calafia, Barony of

*Christel Leake. New Name.

[Name] The submitter does not care about the gender of the name, but would prefer feminine. She will accept minor but not major changes, and if the name must be change she cares about the sound ("Sounds like 'Crystal Leak'").

Christel is found in Dauzat (header, p. 130), undated, where it is listed a diminutive of Christ.

Leake is a found in R&W (s.n. Leak, p. 274) with Leak, Leake, Leek, Leeke, Leck dated to 1290.

Name approved and forwarded to Laurel.


*Eirikr Ivarsson. New Name and Device. Vert, a bendlet and a bendlet sinister Or, fretted of a mascle all within a bordure argent.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a masculine name authentic for around 960 AD Norse. He will accept minor but not major changes; and if the name must be changed he cares most about the sound.

Eirikr is found in Geirr Bassi on p. 9 as a masculine given name.

Ivarr is found in Gierr Bassi on p. 12 as a masculine given name. The patronymic, Ivarsson, is formed based on the rules on p. 17.

[Armory] This form was reduced some time prior to being submitted. The emblazon is not so small that it must be returned for this reason.

Name and device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


*Ilaria Di Fiore. New Name.

[Name] The submitter desires a feminine name. No other boxes are checked.

Ilaria is found in de Felice Nomi (s.n. Ilario, p 209); it is undated in this spelling although the masculine Ilario dates to the 4th and 5th centuries.

Fiore is found in de Felice Cognomi (s.n. Fiore, p. 125); it is undated in this spelling. Submitted as de Fióre, accents in de Felice are for pronunciation only, we have therefore removed the accent. de Felice Nomi (s.n. Fiore, pp. 171-172) mentions a Saint Fiore. Cognoni has Di Fiore, we have thus capitalized the particle, though di seems more common that Di.

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel.


Jolie Delarue. New Name and Device. Per pale gules and sable, on a pale argent three estoilles sable.

[Name] The submitter desires a feminine name. No other boxes are checked.

Jolie is the submitter's legal given name; a copy of her driver's license is included. Submitted as Jolié, neither the printed driver's license nor her signature shows the accent. We have changed the name to match the documented form; i.e., without the accent.

Delarue is found in Dauzat (s.n. Rue, p. 532). Undated, but we believe, given the topinomic, "of the street", that the surname would be period.

Name and device are approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Máel Anfaid Ó Conchobhair. New Name.

[Name] Submitted as Maolanaithe Ó Conchobhair. The submitter does not care about the gender of the name. If the name must be changed she cares most about the language/culture (Irish). She wishes the last name to be kept as submitted.

Máel Anfaid is the primary header spelling in OCM (header, p. 129); it is undated, though it is the name of an Irish saint, and the authors state "This name fell into disuse at an early period". The original submission was for the later form Maolanaithe, so we have corrected the spelling to the earlier form to conform to the early date of the surname.

Ó Conchobhair is found in MacLysaght (s.n. O Connor, p. 55) where it is undated but noted as an early form. It is also found in Woulfe (header, p. 476), dated to 979.

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel.


*Matthias Raiser Scheuwenpflug. New Name

[Name] The submitter is interested in a masculine name authentic for an unspecified language/culture (presumably German). He will accept all changes; and if the name must be changed he cares most about the language/culture. The submitter would like all three names, but if one must be dropped he prefers the name Matthais Raiser.

Matthias is found as the header in Bahlow/Gentry 1st ed. (p. 356); it is undated, but by its biblical association, it is easily medieval.

Raiser is found as the header in Bahlow/Gentry 1st ed. (p. 436); it is dated 1437; meaning "warrior" or "traveler"

Scheuwenpflug is found in Bahlow/Gentry 1st ed. (s.n. Scheu(ch)benkflug; p 488); it is dated 1387 with the meaning "avoiding the plow".

Name is approved and forwarded to Laurel.


*Sanchia de Illora. New Device Change. Argent, a pomegranate gules, in chief five lozenges each charged with a bee Or marked sable.

[Name] Her name was registered 02/00 via Artemisia.

[Armory] Her current device, Per bend argent and sable, three roses proper and three bees Or, registered 07/01 (with blazon corrected 02/02) is to be retained as a badge. The lozenges touch the top of the shield as well as the sides. Crescent was unable to derive a blazon that would reproduce the emblazon. With the submitter's approval, the device was redrawn during the meeting to address this problem.

Device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


*Vestia Aurelius. New Name and Device. Or, a strawberry proper and a bordure gules.

[Name] The submitter desires a feminine name. She will accept minor but not major changes, and if the name must be changed she cares most about the sound and language/culture (unspecified, presumably Roman).

Vestia is found in Lempriere (header, p. 659) where it is noted that Vestia Op'pia was a common prostitute of Capua, Liv 6.c2.

Aurelius is found in Lempriere (header, p. 97) as the name of two emperors. Also listed is Aurelius Victor, a historian, and Antonius Aurelius, a painter.

[Armory] We believe that this is clear of Jean le Reynard (undated), Or, a strawberry [Fragaria Virginianus] pierced by a viol bow bendwise proper, with a CD for removing the bow and another for adding the bordure. A possible conflict was called with Cei Wiclif of Haewengraes (01/85), Or a capsicum pepper proper. Upon checking, the pepper is what is often called a "chili pepper". It is red with a green cap. There is a CD for adding the bordure; there is probably a CD between a long pepper (even if red) and a strawberry. And there may be a CD for orientation, as Cei's pepper appears closer to bendwise sinister than palewise.

Name and device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


*Vladimir Harrysson. New Name.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a masculine name. He will not accept any changes.

Vladimir is found in A Dictionary of Period Russian Names (2nd ed) by Paul Wickenden of Thanet, http://www.sca.org/heraldry/paul/; dated in this spelling as masculine name to 1053. We note that the use of Russian with English names is one weirdness.

We believe that Harrysson is a reasonable variant of Harrison found in R&W (s.n. Harrison, p. 218) with Robert Harriesone 1355, John Herryson 1372, John Herryson, and Harryson 1445. In addition, one of the header spellings is Harrisson. The only element in common is the double r and the son in each.

Name approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Carreg Wen, Shire of

Anastasia MacEwan de Ravenna and Juliana MacLachlan. New Household Name (House of the Red Dragons)

[Name] Anastasia MacEwan de Ravenna's name was registered 10/03. This is submitted as a joint household name with Juliana of York, Juliana's name was returned by Crescent 10/03 and is resubmitted as Juliana MacLachlan, see below.

RfS III.2.b(iv) states "Household Names - Household names must follow the patterns of period names of organized groups of people." One of the examples given is inns, such as House of the White Hart. R&W (s.n. Dragon, p. 141) state that the name is "Occasionally also from a sign: William Strode called atte Dragon, brewer 1374 AD". Thus House of the Dragon fits the model provided in the rules. We believe that a sign depicting two or more red dragons would also be a reasonable sign for an inn, thus House of the Red Dragons would also be registerable under the same model.

Name approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Juliana MacLachlan. Kingdom Resub Name and Kingdom Resub Device. Per fess argent and Or, a dragon passant gules and a thistle proper.

[Name] Her previous submission, Juliana of York, was returned by Crescent 10/03 for conflict with Iuliana of York. She will allow minor but not major changes. No other boxes were marked.

Juliana is found in Withycombe (sn Julian(a), p. 184) as a feminine given name dated 1196-1120.

MacLachlan is found in Black (sn Maclachlan, p. 533), where it is dated to 1308.

[Armory] Her previous submission, identical to this, was pended by Crescent 10/03 for lack of a name.

Name and device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Juliana MacLachlan. Kingdom Resub Badge. Per pale Or and sable, a dragon sejant gules maintaining a tilting spear sable within a bordure embattled counterchanged.

[Name] Her name is submitted above.

[Armory] Her previous submission, identical to this, was pended by Crescent 03/04 for lack of a name. In case Wreath decided that the tilting spear is sustained rather than maintained, the badge was conflict checked under both assumptions.

Badge approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Dreiburgen, Barony of

Ian Michael Hudson. New Name and Device. Azure, a Latin cross couped Or between in bend a capital letter H and a caduceus argent.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a masculine name. He will accept minor but not major changes, and if the name must be changed, he cares most about the meaning ("Ian: God has favored, Michael: who is like the Lord").

Ian is the submitter's legal given name; a copy of his driver's license is included.

Michael is dated as a given name to 1307 in Black (s.n. Michael, pp. 598-599). It is also found in Withycombe (s.n. Michael, pg. 218-219), where it states "the name was a favorite from the 12th C onwards".

Hudson is the submitter's legal surname; a copy of his driver's license is included. In addition, Hudson is the header in R&W (p. 242) where it is glosses as "son of Hudd" and is dated to 1323 and 1568 in the spellings Hudsone and Hutson.

We note that the submitter's legal middle name is not Michael

[Armory] We believe the style of the H is artistic license.

Name and device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Katerine la Petita d'Avignon. New Name and Device. Per bend gules and sable, a kraken Or.

[Name] Submitted as Katerine la Petite d'Avignon. The submitter is interested in a feminine name. She will accept minor but not major changes, and if the name must be changed she cares most about the language/culture (unspecified, presumably French).

Katerine is found in Withycombe (sn Katherine, p.186) where it states "and in Middle English, it usually appears as Katerine…".

"Late Period Feminine Names from the South of France" by Talan Gwynek (http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/latefrenchfem.html) includes la Petit Delh 1521, la Petit Hoeyl 1514, la Petita (Fransesa) 1521, and la Petita Lombarda 1514. Given these examples, it appears that "Little Katerine" would be Katerine la Petita, rather than the submitted Katerine la Petite. We have made that change.

d'Avignon has been registered about 60 times. S. Gabriel (q.v. report 2970) state " We found the place name <Avignon> in Occitan literature of the thirteenth century as <Avinho>, <Avignon>, <Avinoun>, and <Avinhon> [16,17]. Here, the preposition would elide, e.g. <d'Avignon>." The reference are:

[17] Chambers, Frank M., Proper Names in the Lyrics of the Troubadours (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1971). s.n. Avinho.

[Armory] The device is returned for conflict with the badge for Atlantia's Order of the Kraken, (Fieldless) A kraken Or (04/96).

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel. Device returned for conflict.


Louis de Marseille. New Name and Device. Purpure, on a bend argent three fleurs-de-lis palewise sable.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a French masculine name. He will allow minor but not major changes. If the name must be changed, he cares most about the culture (French).

Louis is found in "Sixteenth Century Norman Names" by Cateline de la Mor (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/norman16.html).

Marseille is Found in Webster's New Geographical Dictionary (sn. Marseilles, pg. 733). It is a city in France, dating to Roman times. The name is also found in Dauzat (header, pg. 419), undated. Submitted as Louis de Marsailles we have changed the locative to the documented form.

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel. Device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Gallavally, Canton of (Dreiburgen)

Isyle de Gannoker de Gavain. Appeal of Laurel return of name change, Illuminada Eugenia de Guadalupe y Godoy.

[Name] The submitter's primary name was registered 02/82. Her alternate name submission was returned 03/04 for lack of documentation for the given name. Laurel writes,

"Illuminada and Iluminada are not interchangable (sic) in Spanish, since ll and l are considered separate letters in that language. No documentation was provided for this name spelled with ll. We would change the given name to the documented form Iluminada, but the suibmitter will not allow and changes. This name must, therefore, be returned.

Further documentation provided but not summarized here as it was inadequate. For this reason she chose to withdraw her submission at this time.

Name withdrawn by the submitter for further work.


Isyle le Gannoker de Gavain. New change of device. Sable, a bend engoulee Or.

[Name] The submitter's primary name was registered 02/82.

[Armory] If registered, the submitter desires her current device Vert, chapé ployé argent, an axe bendwise vert charged on the blade with a mullet Or, a chalice vert, banded Or, and a unicorn couchant argent, armed and gorged of a collar Or retained as a badge. Documentation for a bend engoulee was provided but was not sufficient. For this reason she chose to withdraw her submission at this time.

Device withdrawn by the submitter for further work.


Vivienne Duval. New Device. Per chevron azure and sable, a chevron between two escallops and a hummingbird argent.

[Name] Submitted as Maridonna Dolce di Perugia. The submitter is interested in a feminine name. She will accept minor but not major changes. Though she marked her form that she would not accept a holding name, she was contacted via telephone and changed her mind.

Maridonna is found in "Feminine Given Names From Thirteenth Century Perugia" by Arval Benicoeur (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/perugia/perugiaFemAlpha.html).

Dolce is from "Italian Renaissance Women's Names" by Rhian Lyth of Blackmoor Vale (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/rhian/italian.html).

da is the locative marker; this is used with placenames in Italian rather than di (q.v. Camilla Fante da Ferrara, 08/01, A-Meridies).

Perugia is taken from the title of Arval's article "Feminine Given Names From Thirteenth Century Perugia", cited above.

Tairdelbach MacChlery. New Name and Device. Per bend agent and sable, a yale rampant gules spotted, maintaining a sword Or.

Tairdelbach is a masculine given name from in OCM (header, p. 169), dated to 1086.

MacChlery is found in Black (header, p. 468), undated in this spelling. Name derives from M'a'Chleirich, "son of a cleric". The form Macclerich dates to 1376. We note that Scots is a language closely related to English, so the mixture of Scots and Gaelic is one step from period practice, or a weirdness (q.v. Elspeth O'Shea, 02/00).

Name and device approved and forwarded to Laurel.

Adelheit Schwarzenkatze. New Name and Device. Or, two cats sejant addorsed regardant and a chief engrailed gules.

Adelheit is dated to 1495, citing references [1] and [2]. Schwarzenkatze is constructed based on examples in references [3] and [4]. The references are:

Erich is documented in from S. Gabriel report 2155, which states "We find it recorded as <Erich> in 1293 and as <Erike> in 1266 and 1325 in Northern Germany. [5, 6]" The references are:

[5] Bahlow, Hans, Deutsches Namenlexikon : Familien- und Vornamen nach Ursprung und Sinn erklaert (Frankfurt am Main : Suhrkamp Taschenbuch Verlag, 1985, 1990), s.n. Erich. You should be aware that the name <Erich von dem Schwarzwald> is already registered in the SCA; any name you construct using the elements <Erich> and <Schwarzwald> may be considered too close for registration.

[6] Zoder, R., Familiennamen in Ostfalen. 2 vols. (Hildesheim: 1968), p. 29. It is possible that the <-e> could be a grammatical addition, so that the name would actually be <Erik>.

Schwarzenkatze is constructed based on examples in references [3] and [4]. The references are:

[3] J. B. Rietstap, Armorial Ge/ne/ral, Vol. I, s.n. Katzen ff. (Clearfield Company, 1998).

The submitter was contacted during the meeting, and during that conversation he indicated that if the full name was not registerable, he would prefer that this element (Schwarzenkatze) be dropped.

RfS III.2.b(iv) states "Household Names - Household names must follow the patterns of period names of organized groups of people." One of the examples given is inns, such as House of the White Hart. S. Gabriel report 2866 notes "A surname like <zu der schwarzen Katze> "at the [house of the] black cat" fits well into this pattern, but notice that all the examples we've used are considerably earlier than your period." The name was constructed based on examples in references [3] and [4]. The references are:

[3] J. B. Rietstap, Armorial Ge/ne/ral, Vol. I, s.n. Katzen ff. (Clearfield Company, 1998).

[4] Brechenmacher, Josef Karlmann, Etymologisches Woerterbuch der deutschen Familiennamen (Limburg a. d. Lahn, C. A. Starke-Verlag, 1957-1960), s.nn. Rotenlo"wen, Goldvogel, Rotenkreuz.

Isles, Shire of

Adelasia Borghi D'Ascoli. New Name and Device. Sable, on a lozenge Or a serpent gules involved.

[Name] The name was submitted as Adelàsia Borghi d'Ascoli. The submitter desires a feminine name. She will accept minor but not major changes.

Adelasia is found in de Felice Nomi (sn Adelasia, p. 41), dated to the Middle Ages ("Medio Evo"). Accent marks found in de Felice are for pronunciation purposes only and are not part of the written name. We have removed the accent mark.

Borghi is found in de Felice Cognomi (sn Borghi, p. 85), dated to 1146.

D'Ascoli is found in de Felice Cognomi (sn Ascoli, p. 63), dated to the 12th and 13th century. We have changed the capitalization to match the documentation.

Noe College (Lyondemere)

Tuathal Mac Crimthainn. New Name and Device. Vert, on a a phoenix Or a compass star azure.

[Name]. Submitted as Tuathal Mac Crimthain. Submitter will accept all changes and if the name must be changed, he cares most about an unspecified language/culture (presumably Gaelic). The submitter wishes proper lenition, and wishes accuracy as close to AD 405 as possible but does not want it returned if accuracy isn't possible.

Tuathal is found in OCM (s.n. Tuathal, p. 173), where it is dates to before 958. This is a traditional Irish name for many kings.

Crimthann is found in OCM (s.n. Crimthann, p. 61); it was popular in early Ireland. This is the pre-1200 spelling. We believe that Mac Crimthainn is the correct patronymic form. Submitted as Mac Crimthain we have added the terminal n.

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel. Device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Western Seas, Barony of

Shannon inghean Bhriain uí Dhuilleáin. Kingdom Resub Name and Device. Azure, a dog's head couped contourny between three mullets and on a chief argent three shamrocks vert.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a feminine name. She will allow minor but not major changes, and if the name must be changed she cares most about the meaning ("Shannon, daughter of Brian of Clan Dillon"). The name was submitted last month as Shannon inghaen bhrian uí Dhuilleáin. It was returned as no documentation was provided for Shannon. Also, the spelling was changed to match documentation. The forms included in the packet were from this first submission. Getting new forms sent from Hawaii seemed unnecessary.

Shannon is the submitter's legal name as shown by her driver's license, school ID, and military ID (copies attached).

The rest of the name is documented based on a letter from the Academy of S. Gabriel (attached) – a report was apparently not issued.

inghean is Gaelic, "daughter of".

Briain is the genitive form of Brian as shown in Mari Elsbeth nic Bryan's "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Brian" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Brian.shtml). Bhriain is the lenited form, as required by Gaelic grammar.

S. Gabriel report 1646, citing Woulfe, has Ó Duilleáin as a Gaelic family name. uí Dhuilleáin is the form recommended by S. Gabriel.

[Armory] This device was returned last month for lack of a name.

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel. Device approved and forward to Laurel.


Wintermist, Shire of

*Krista Silverlock. New Alternate Name (Ewe Notte Mée) and Badge. Gules a shorn ewe couchant and on a point pointed argent a sprig of forget-me-nots proper.

[Name] Her primary name was registered 05/02 via An Tir. The submitter is interested in a feminine name. She will accept minor but not major changes to the name, and if the name must be changed she cares most about the sound.

Ewe is found in R&W (s.n. Ewe, p. 158) where it states "There was also a feminine name which may have contributed to the surname: Ewe filia Hugonis, dated 1199-1200."

Notte is found in Dauzat (s.n. Notte, p. 453) which states "Notte, var. de Note, chanteur; v. Notier, comme pour les dimm. Nottet". It is undated. Notier (s.n. Notier, p. 453) indicates that is "anc. fr." and means "secrétaire", thus it would be an occupational byname.

Mée is found in Dauzat (s.n. Mee, p. 427) as a locative surname.

[Armory] This badge is to be associated with the alternate name.

Name and badge approved and forwarded to Laurel.
