Calafia, Barony of

Justin Brekleg. New name.

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

Justin is found as the header spelling of Withycombe p. 185 where Justin Martyr (died AD 163) is listed. The name was not much used in England but in Ireland where it was used to render some native name, The Welsh Yestin, Iestin is said to come from it. Justin Whitman was baptized in 1639. Justina is the next entry in Withycombe and dates St Justina a 4th century saint, patron saint of Padua. The first example is Justina d of Lawerence Humphery, President of Magdalen College b. c. 1556.

Breakleg is listed in Reaney and Wison dated to Adam Brekeleg 1243, AssSo 'break leg'. The submitter prefers the spelling Brekleg but will accept the dated spelling. To support the submitted spelling, the submitter also notes

R&W, under the header Breaklance (prior entry) have the desired spelling Brek___ meaning "break." John Brekpole 1447 CtH 'break pole and William Breksekyll' 1379 meaning 'break sickle'. We believe the submitted spelling is reasonable.

Name approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Tolric of Entwisle. New name and device. Per pale sable and Or an Owl affronty and in chief two mullets of eight points elongated to base counterchanged.

[Name] Submitted as Tolric of Entwistle. The submitter does not care about the gender of the name. The submitter will accept minor but not major changes. The submitter will accept the spelling Entwissell and the dropping of “of” only if the name is unregisterable as submitted.

Tolric is a constructed Anglo Saxon name. St Gabriel report #2403 (attached) states that taking part of each parent's name commonly forms Anglo Saxon names.

Tol is listed on pg 456 of Serle as a nomen viri, Ellis B

There are multiple examples of D to T switches, including:

p. 453 Til SW > Dil Fn 335

p. 456 Tolfihn [c. xj c,] inscr at Carlisle Aelina NS iiij 65ff > Dolfin

p. 459 Trud___ > Drud ___ Fn 346 and Truht___ > Druth___

p. 460 Tub Fn 354 > Dug and Tug > Dug Fn 354

p. 463 Tynne > Dynne

p. 168 Dol___ is listed as a prototheme and we contend that since the D to T substitution is not uncommon Tol__ is a plausible prototheme

___ric is found on pg 399 Sw 629, Fn 1036

Entwistle is found in Reaney and Wilson (s.n. Entwistle, Entwisle, Entwhistle, p 165). The header spellings are undated but R&W date John Entwissell to 1332. From Entwisle Lancs.

Entwisle is also listed as a header in Ekwall p. 167 with additional dated spellings and possible meanings. Ennetwysel 1276, Hennetwisel 1212. Possible meanings; OE twisla is a tongue of land in a river fork. Other possible meanings henna twisla forked river frequented by water-hens or ened-twisla (ened 'duck').

As the only dated forms of the locative lack the second "t", we have changed to a header form that most closely matches the dated spellings. Combining Anglo-Saxon and English is considered one step from period practice (q.v. Saxsa Corduan, 10/01); a time disparately of greater than 300 years would be a second step.

[Device] The proposed blazon claims the charges in chief are compass stars. Compass stars are mullets of four greater points and four lesser points. The lesser points tend to be about half the length of the greater ones. Here, we have mullets with equal-length points except for the base-most point, which is elongated. Thus, we have changed the blazon to "mullets of eight points elongated to base" to match the emblazon.

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


Darach, Shire of

Eleanor de Venoix. Kingdom resub. device. Per fess purpure and azure, a hind at gaze Or between three mullets of eight points argent.

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

[Armory] Her previous submission, with the same blazon, was returned by Crescent 09/12/04 for using the wrong shade of purpure (it came out as fuschia). She has resubmitted with recolored copies, and the purpure appears to be an undoubted purple this time.

Device approved and forwarded to Laurel.


Gyldenholt, Barony of

Alienor d'Orliens. New name.

[Name] Submitted as Aliénor d'Orliens. The submitter is interested in a feminine name authentic for "1200+ France". She allows all changes; and if the name must be changed she cares most about the language/culture (France). She also notes, "Feel free to change place name". We take this to mean she cares more about the given name than byname.

The submitter cites Withycombe for Aliénor (s.n. Eleanor, pp. 96-97). Withycombe notes this is the Provençal form of the name; however, Withycombe has been ruled unreliable for non-English names. Withycombe does date Alienor to the 12th to 15th C in England. Alienor is found in Aryanhwy's "Late Period French Feminine Names" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/latefrench.html) where it is dated to 1488 and 1574. The period forms do not seem to use the accent so we have removed it to match the submitter's request for authenticity.

d'Orliens is found as a byname in Colm Dubh's "An Index to the Given Names in the 1291 Census of Paris" (www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/paris.html).

Name approved as changed and forwarded to Laurel.


Damiano Drago da Gorgonzola. New Name.

[Name] Submitted as Damiano Drago di Gorgonzola. The submitter is interested in masculine name. He allows all changes; and if the name must be changed he cares most about the language/culture (presumably, Italian).

Damiano is found in De Felici's Nomi (s.n. Damiàno, p. 121). The accent marks in de Felice are for pronunciation only. Several Saints Damiano are mentioned.

Drago is found in De Felici's Cogomi (s.n. Drago, p. 116), where it appears to be undated though based on a medieval form: "Ha alla base nome e soprannomi già medioevali formati da drago e dragóne…".

Gorgonzola is an Italian place name. CLG indicates that it is 11 miles from Milan. 1200 AD. The page for the Consortium for the Production of Gorgonzola Cheese (http://www.gorgonzola.com/eng/default.htm, for the English version), notes under History "Gorgonzola has very old origins, although, like many other traditional food products, it has no official birth certificate but many hypothetical and legendary ones. Some claim that gorgonzola was first made in the town of the same name situated just outside Milan, in the year of grace 879." The official website of the town does not include a history section. We believe that the documentation is sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt.

The particle used with Italian locatives is da not di; we have made the necessary change.

Name returned for lack of documentation.


Western Seas, Barony of

Najmun al-Andalusiyya. New name and device. Vert, between the tips of a vol a mullet of eight points Or, on a chief raguly argent three mullets of eight points azure.

[Name] The submitter is interested in a feminine name. She will accept all changes; and if the name must be changed she cares most about the language/culture (unspecified).

The submitter documents Najmun as meaning "a star" from Lessons in Arabic Language - Book 1 by Dr. V. 'Abdur Raheem of the University of Madeenah (http://www.islamic-knowledge.com/Learning_Arabic/Madeenah_Book/Vocabulary.htm). The submitter also provides documentation from Anne Marie Schimmel in Islamic Names (Edinburgh Univ. Press, 1989; title page not included in documentation) that this is a valid part of a name: (p. 3) "All nature served the Muslims for names, beginning with the sun (shams; Shemissa is still in use in Tunis_ and {a-}ft{a-}b, khursh{i-}d (P) or Gün, günes (T) - to the moon and ay (T) occur often in combinations). Stars in general - najam, akhtar (p), y{iv}ld{iv}z (T) - are used." We do not know what the abbreviations mean in this section of the text. This is insufficient to document the given name.

al-Andalusiyya is a locative byname meaning "woman from Andalus", as found in "Andalusian Names: Arabs in Spain" by Juliana de Luna (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/andalusia/).

[Device] We note that difficulty in blazoning the position of the central mullet would seem to indicate non-period style. But we have used the wording from other recent submissions as our guide.

Name returned for lack of documentation. Device returned for lack of a name.


Order of Precedence Notes

None.
