      Nice 15th-17th century Polish name!

  Aquaterra, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  Gorges Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Berwyn Ulric. Name and device. Or, a bear rampant and on a chief
  urdy sable five mullets of eight points Or.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the mullets on the chief
      larger so they are easier to identify.

  Blatha an Oir, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  Bealidh Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Ciosa Leonora Fioravanti. Name and device. Per fess vert and sable,
  a fess ermine between two olive branches fesswise reversed argent.

      Nice 15th century Florentine name!

  Cunegonda van den Bossche. Name and device. Gules, a seeblatt argent
  and a bordure gyronny argent and azure.

      Submitted as "Cun_egonde_ van den Bossche", the given name was
      changed to "Cun_igunda_" because it was closer to her preferred
      form "Cun_egonda_". The originally submitted form was documented
      in commentary by Ogress, as a saint's name in the 1649 _Les
      Meditations De Philagie_ by Paul de Barry (p. 237;
      https://books.google.com/books?id=4387AAAAcAAJ). In addition,
      the spelling _Kunigonde_ was documented by Siren in Aryanhwy
      merch Catmael's "Dutch Names 1393-96"
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/dutch/dutch14.html).

      The desired spelling _Cunegonda_ is a reasonable Latinization of
      the attested _Cunegonde_. Therefore, we have changed the name to
      the preferred form.

      Although the submission form did not have a formal authenticity
      request noted, the Letter of Intent stated that the submitter
      wanted an authentic name for the Netherlands in the 13th century
      if possible. The name is an authentic 14th century Latinized
      Dutch name, but not a 13th century form.

      Nice device!

  Dragon's Laire, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  Golden Dragon Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

      The designator has been changed from the originally registered
      _Herald_ to _Pursuivant_.

  Dragon's Mist, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  White Dragon Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Emelev the Chaste. Name change from Vasilisa Fedorova and device
  change. Gules, a harpy rising argent, a bordure compony argent and
  sable.

      The byname _the Chaste_ is a lingua Anglica form of the Latin
      _Pudicas_.

      The submitter's previous name, _Vasilisa Fedorova_, is released.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the creature so that both
      wings are visible and to add internal details.

      The submitter's old device, "Gules, three winged wagon wheels
      argent", is released.

  Esme de Blacwatyr. Name (see RETURNS for device and badge).

  Freydis mannaskelfir. Name and device. Checky argent and vert, on a
  chief gules two elephants statant respectant argent.

  Glymm Mere, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title Be
  Wayre Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Gu{dh}run Odmarsdottir. Name and device. Per fess argent and vert, a
  brown bear passant proper and a bordure counterchanged.

      Submitted as "Gu_{dh}_run _Hro{dh}_marsdottir", the name was
      changed by kingdom with the submitter's permission to "Gu_th_run
      _Od_marsdottir" in order to give the submitter a 12th century
      Swedish form of her name, although the submitter preferred the
      submitted form if it could be documented to the 12th century.

      Both _Guthrun_ and _Odmar_ are found in 12th century Sweden
      (SMP, s.nn. Gudhrun and {O/}dhmar). In addition, _Gu{dh}r{u'}n_
      and _Oddmarr_ are found in the _Landn{a'}mab{o'}k_, which was
      originally written in the 12th century. We have changed the name
      to the mixed Old Norse-Swedish "Gu{dh}run _Od_marsdottir" to
      restore the submitted spelling of the given name. The wholly
      Swedish form in the Letter of Intent is also registerable, as is
      the entirely Old Norse _Gu{dh}run Oddmarsdottir_. If the
      submitter prefers one of these forms, she can submit a request
      for reconsideration.

  Karie Wen ferch Morgan. Device. Argent, in bend a pair of human
  footprints bendwise sinister gules and in chief four coronets azure.

      Like for any other paw print, there is a step from period
      practice for the use of human footprints.

      The submitter is a viscountess and thus entitled to the display
      of a coronet on her heraldry.

  Lions Gate, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  Sable Loat Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Litil-Sunneva in harsvarta. Name and device. Per chevron sable and
  purpure, a chevron between two ermine spots and a sun argent.

      Submitted as "Litla_ _Sunneva in harsvarta", the name was
      correctly changed in kingdom to "Litla_-_Sunneva in harsvarta"
      to add the normal hyphen between the prepended byname and the
      given name.

      _Litla-_ is a prepended byname meaning "little". In the examples
      provided in the Letter of Intent, the similar descriptive
      bynames took the strong adjectival form when prepended, so we
      have changed this byname accordingly to "Litil-".

      The byname _in harsvarta_ ("the dark haired") was constructed
      using the examples _h{a'}rfagr/inn h{a'}rfagri_ ("hair-fair/the
      fairhaired") and _svartkollr_ ("black pate"), both found in
      Cleasby-Vigfusson. After the Pelican decision meeting, ffride
      wlffsdotter noted that we have very few examples of the pattern
      _hair + [adjective]_. In addition to the one cited above,
      _harraudi_ ("hair-red") is found in Lind, s.n. Grandrau{dh}i.
      However, we have examples of _[adjective] + hair_ in
      Cleasby-Vigfusson, s.v. h{a'}rr: _fagr-h{a'}rr_ "fair-hair",
      _d{o:}kk-harr_ "dark-hair", _rau{dh}-h{a'}rr_ "red-hair", and
      _hv{i'}t-h{a'}rr_ "white-hair". We are willing to give the
      submitter the benefit of the doubt that the constructed _in
      harsvarta_ is plausible.

      The submitter may wish to know that there is also an attested
      byname in Geirr Bassi with the meaning of "the black": _inn
      svarti_ (for which the feminine form is _in svarta_). If the
      submitter prefers this or one of the other attested forms
      instead of the constructed byname, she can submit a request for
      reconsideration.

  Madrun Gwehyddes. Badge. Argent, a crescent sable between three
  estoiles of eight rays one and two gules.

  Marguerite Dubois de la Fonteijne. Name and device. Sable
  semy-de-lys, on a pale cotised argent a fleur-de-lys sable.

      Submitted as "Marguerite Dubois de _L_a Fonteijne", we have
      changed the second byname to "de _l_a Fonteijne" to use
      consistent capitalization for the preposition and article.

      This name combines a French given name and byname with a Dutch
      byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of
      SENA.

      The submitter may wish to know that an entirely French form of
      this name is "Marguerite Dubois de la Fontaine", which was
      documented in the Letter of Intent. If the submitter prefers
      this form, she can submit a request for reconsideration.

  Matilda Stoyle. Blanket permission to conflict with badge.
  (Fieldless) On a purse gules a cross crosslet Or.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict to any armory that
      is not identical to her registered armory.

  Matilda Stoyle. Blanket permission to conflict with device. Azure,
  three estoiles argent.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict to any armory that
      is not identical to her registered armory.

  Matilda Stoyle. Blanket permission to conflict with name.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict to any name that is
      not identical to her registered name.

  Michele Aquilani da Napoli. Badge for Academia Sancti Thomae Aquini.
  (Fieldless) A lamb passant regardant supporting in its dexter
  foreleg a banner bendwise sinister purpure.

  Olin Wlfredson. Name.

  Sarah Huntsman. Device change. Per saltire vert and sable, an alphyn
  passant within an orle argent.

      The submitter's old device, "Or, on a chevron inverted between a
      willow tree and a crescent vert three mullets Or", is retained
      as a badge.

  Sign{y'} Gr{i'}msd{o'}ttir. Name.

  Sigr{u'}n Bjarnhe{dh}insd{o'}ttir. Name and device. Sable, an otter
  statant Or, in chief three escallops argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the otter larger.

  Summits, Principality of the. Badge. Azure, on a chalice argent a
  sprig of holly vert fructed azure.

  Talentus del Albero. Badge. Purpure semy of escarbuncles, on a
  roundel argent a tree blasted and eradicated sable.

  Terra Pomaria, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  Hazel Leaf Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Thomas O'Malley. Name.

      The byname _O'Malley_ is found in 'Elizabeth I: volume 125,
      August 1586', in Calendar of State Papers, Ireland, 1586-1588
      (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/cal-state-papers/ireland/1576-88/pp125-147).

      Nice 16th century Anglicized Irish name!

  Thomas O'Malley. Alternate name Tom{a'}s {O'} M{a'}ille.

      Submitted as "Tom{a'}s _{O'}_ M_{a'}_ille", the name was changed
      in kingdom to "Tom{a'}s _O_ M_a_ille", to try to meet the
      submitter's request for an authentic 16th century Irish name.
      However, accents must be used consistently through the entire
      name, and do not affect whether a name is authentic or not.
      Therefore, we have restored the alternate name to the submitted
      form. A form without accents, "Tom_a_s _O_ Maille", would also
      be registerable. If the submitter prefers this form, he can
      submit a request for reconsideration.

      This alternate name is an authentic 16th century Irish Gaelic
      name, meeting the submitter's authenticity request.

  Three Mountains, Barony of. Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title
  Mountains Pursuivant from Kingdom of An Tir.

  Ysoria de Brai. Badge. (Fieldless) A chatloup rampant argent.

      This badge does not conflict with the badge of Tristan O'Shea:
      "(Fieldless) A calygreyhound rampant argent" and his device:
      "Per saltire gules and sable, a calygreyhound rampant argent".
      There is a DC for fieldlessness and another DC for the
      difference between chatloup and calygreyhound.

      Nice badge!

  Zahra bint al-Attar. Name and device. Per fess azure and Or, a rose
  Or slipped and leaved vert, a gore argent.

      Nice Andalusian Arabic name!

      Please advise the submitter to draw the gore larger so that the
      curved lines meet closer to the center of the shield.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a gore with
      another charge on the field.

======================================================================

**** ANSTEORRA acceptances ****

  Abigail Lylle. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Nice 16th century English name!

  Donn{a'}n {O'} N{e'}ill. Name and device. Argent, on a saltire azure
  a shepherd's crook and a sword in saltire Or.

      Submitted as "Donn{a'}n _{O'}_ N{e'}ill", the name was changed
      in kingdom to "Donn{a'}n _O'_N{e'}ill" due to a possible
      misreading of the form. The form of the byname in the Letter of
      Intent combines the Anglicized Irish _O'_ and Gaelic _N{e'}ill_
      in the same name phrase, a violation of PN1B1 of SENA.
      Therefore, we have restored the byname to the submitted form in
      order to register this name.

  Thomas de Groet. Name and device. Azure, a bend sinister
  counter-compony gules and argent.

      Both the given name and byname are found in 1478, making this an
      excellent 15th century Dutch name!

      Nice device!

======================================================================

**** ARTEMISIA acceptances ****

  Annora the Wise. Device. Azure, in pale a demi-sun issuant from
  chief Or and an owl's head cabossed argent.

  Artemisia, Kingdom of. Heraldic title Golden Zule Pursuivant.

      _Zule_ is a lingua Anglica form and a standard term used in SCA
      blazonry.

  {C,}inara de Castille. Name.

      Submitted as "_C_inara de Castille", the attested spelling of
      the given name is "_{C,}_inara". As documentation was not
      provided to show that _C_ and _{C,}_ (C-cedilla) are used
      interchangeably in Spanish or Basque, we have changed the
      spelling to the attested form.

      This name combines an Iberian given name and a French byname.
      This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

  {I'}sger{dh}r Bjargeyjard{o'}ttir. Name.

  Jeremias Xenophon. Name.

      This name uses an English given name with an ancient Greek
      byname. The Letter of Intent documented the pattern of using
      Classical Greek given names in the nominative (base) form as
      late period English surnames.

  Kynric de Coventry. Name and device. Azure fretty argent, a rose and
  on a chief Or three estoiles azure.

  Magnus Burt. Device. Argent, a chevron embattled gules between two
  bears statant erect respectant, each maintaining a spade, and a
  tower sable.

  Magnus Burt. Alternate name Magnus Stonesetter.

      Magnus is grandfathered to the submitter. It is also an attested
      given name from 16th century England, found in the FamilySearch
      Historical Records. Therefore, the submitter need not rely on
      the grandfather clause.

      Submitted as "Magnus Ston_es_etter", the name was changed in
      kingdom to "Magnus Stone_ S_etter", as no evidence of the
      occupational byname _Stonesetter_ was found.

      The Oxford English Dictionary includes the phrase "a setter or
      orderar of the same stones", dated to 1526. Thuresson's _Middle
      English Occupational Terms_ includes several examples of
      occupations or occupational bynames pertaining to stone workers:
      _Hewere_ or _Hewer_ ("one who hews or cuts wood or stone"),
      _basmarker_ ("one who makes the base or foundations of a house,
      pillars, or pedestals"), _quernpeckere_ ("one who indents the
      surface of a millstone"), _Setter_ or _Settere_ ("one who sets
      stone or brick in a building"), and _rughmason_ ("a mason
      building only with unhewn stone"). In addition, several forms of
      _Mason_, _Staneman_ ("stone worker"), _Stonehewar_ ("stone
      hewer"), _rogh setter_ ("rough-stone mason") and _leyers_
      ("stone layers"), and _Stonebreker_ ("dweller by or worker at a
      stone quarry") are found in Reaney & Wilson, s.nn. Mason,
      Stonebreaker, Stonehewer, Setter, and Stoneman. In addition,
      _Stonesetter_ is a lingua Anglica form of the attested German
      byname _Steinsetzer_, found in the FamilySearch Historical
      Records. Therefore, we are able to restore the byname to the
      submitted form.

  Shay Maclean. Name.

======================================================================

**** ATENVELDT acceptances ****

  Ezekiel Crow. Name.

      Nice 16th century English name!

  Faleena Camille del Sol. Name change from Faleena Camille and device
  change. Gules, a lion queue-forchy salient contourny argent within
  an orle of compass stars Or.

      _Faleena_ and _Camille_ are grandfathered to the submitter.

      The submitter's previous name, _Faleena Camille_, is retained as
      an alternate name.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the compass stars slightly
      larger so they are easier to identify.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of compass
      stars.

      The submitter's old device, "Vert, in fess a lion
      queue-forch{e'}e salient to sinister and a stag rampant argent,
      in chief a compass star Or", is retained as a badge.

  Hinrich von Bremen. Name and device. Gules, a hart's head cabossed
  and on a chief Or three estoiles sable.

      Please advise the submitter to draw longer and wavier rays and
      to add some internal lines to the estoiles so they are easier to
      identify.

  J{o:}rg von den H{u:}geln. Name and device. Or, two halberds in
  saltire gules and overall a boarhound statant sable.

      The byname _von den H{u:}geln_ was documented in the Letter of
      Intent as a constructed toponym meaning "from the hills".

      In commentary, Skraeling Althing documented the phrase "Von den
      H{u:}geln oder Berglein" in the 1596 book _Chiromancia Sampt
      ihrer Theorick, Practick, und Astronomischer Concordantz_ by
      Johannes Rothmann
      (https://books.google.ca/books?id=m5QQxn3igGYC). She also
      documented the phrase "und von den H{u:}geln fur und fur" in the
      1585 book _Hierampelos_ by Georg Horn
      (https://books.google.ca/books?id=7O1gAAAAcAAJ). Therefore, the
      byname is registerable as submitted.

  Kitajima Ichirou Machiyasu. Name.

      Submitted as "Kitajima I_s_hirou Ma_tchasu_", the submission
      used a name that we suggested in an earlier return. However,
      Solveig Throndardottir noted in commentary that this suggestion
      contained a typographical error in the _yobina_, which should
      have been spelled "I_c_hirou". In addition, _Matchasu_ is
      correctly transcribed from the Japanese as "Machiyasu" or
      "Machiyas". With the submitter's permission, we have changed the
      name to "Kitajima I_c_hirou Ma_chiyasu_" to register this name.

  Sitriuc liath mac Sinach. Name change from holding name Sitriuc of
  Atenveldt and device change. Per chevron Or and vert, two pommes
  each charged with a triskelion of armored legs and a winged sea-fox
  naiant Or.

      The submitter's old device, "Per chevron Or and vert, two pommes
      each charged with a triskelion of armored legs Or and a winged
      sea-fox naiant argent", is released.

  Tomaso Floreano. Device change. Or, in bend sinister a wooden mallet
  proper and a quill pen both bendwise, a bordure sable.

      The submitter's old device, "Or, in bend sinister a wooden
      mallet bendwise inverted proper and a wood-handled chisel
      bendwise inverted proper bladed argent, a bordure sable", is
      retained as a badge.

======================================================================

**** ATLANTIA acceptances ****

  Annaliese J{a:}ger. Name.

      Nice 16th century German name!

  Atlantia, Kingdom of. Heraldic title Golden Raven Pursuivant.

      The kingdom has permission from Brenna of Storvik to conflict
      with her registered household name, _House Golden Raven_.

  Eithne ingen R{o'}n{a'}in. Device. Argent, a shamrock vert, on a
  chief azure four mullets argent.

  Elphin ap Dafyd. Device. Gules, a lion couchant contourny within a
  bordure rayonny Or.

  Fedor Turov syn. Name.

  Fjorleif in Rau{dh}a. Name change from Ka{dh}l{i'}n
  Fj{o,}rleifard{o'}ttir.

      Submitted as "Fjorleif _I_n R_uada_", the name appeared in the
      Letter of Intent as "Fjorleif _i_n R_auda_". The Letter of
      Intent also stated that the name was submitted as "Fjorleif _i_n
      R_uadi_", but the submission form did not include this spelling.

      The correct masculine form of the byname is "inn R_au{dh}i_",
      and the corresponding feminine form is "in R_au{dh}a_". We have
      corrected the spelling of the byname and feminized it to
      register this name.

      The submitter may wish to know that the standardized spelling of
      the given name is "Fj_{o,}_rleif", with an _o-ogonek_ instead of
      the _o_. However, under Appendix D of SENA, we allow forms that
      omit special characters like _o-ogonek_. If the submitter
      prefers this form, she can submit a request for reconsideration.

      The submitter's previous name, _Ka{dh}l{i'}n
      Fj{o,}rleifard{o'}ttir_, is released.

  Hua Meilan. Device. Purpure, a camelopard rampant Or spotted sable
  winged argent.

  Karl Wei{sz} Hund. Name and device. Per pale sable and Or, a bend
  gules and overall a wolf rampant regardant argent.

  Katla Fl{o'}kad{o'}ttir. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "9th C Birka
      non-Christian old Norse/Viking". This request was not summarized
      in the Letter of Intent. Luckily for the submitter, we had
      enough information to consider this request instead of pending
      the name for further commentary.

      Both the given name and father's name are found in the
      _Landn{a'}mab{o'}k_, so this name is an authentic 9th or 10th
      century Old West Norse name rather than a Swedish form
      appropriate for Birka.

  Klaus J{a:}ger. Device change. Per bend sinister Or and azure, a
  lion sable and an edelweiss argent.

      The submitter's old device, "Per bend sinister Or and azure, a
      lion sable and a fleur-de-lys argent", is released.

  {TH}{o'}ra Hrafnsd{o'}ttir. Device. Argent, five swords in annulo,
  points to center sable within an annulet gules.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of charges in
      annulo not in their default palewise orientation.

  Vlfbeorn {AE}lfweardes sunu. Name change from {U'}lfhe{dh}inn
  {TH}r{a'}insson.

      The submitter's previous name, _{U'}lfhe{dh}inn
      {TH}r{a'}insson_, is retained as an alternate name.

  Avacal, Kingdom of. Seal for Sanguinaris Principal Herald.

      This submission was pended until the title of Sanguinaris Herald

      this may now be registered and associated properly.

      This item was pended from the October 2015 Letter of Acceptances

  Borealis, Barony of. Order name Order of the Caske (see RETURNS for
  other order name).

      Submitted as "Order of _T_he Caske", we have changed the

  Borealis, Barony of. Badge for Baronial Champions. Azure, two wolf's
  heads erased addorsed and conjoined at the neck argent between five
  mullets in annulo Or.

      This depiction of the wolf's heads erased addorsed and conjoined
      is grandfathered to the submitter.

      _Baronial Champions_ is a generic identifier.

  Gosfrei Kempe. Exchange of device and badge.

      The submitter's old device, "Or, a quadrant gules", is now his
      badge and his old badge, "Per pale gules and Or, two chevronels
      counterchanged", is now his device.

  Stephane de Bourgogne. Name and device. Per chevron gules and sable,
  a chevron Or between two fleurs-de-lys argent and a fleur-de-lys Or.

      Submitted as "St_{e'}_phane de Bourgogne", the Letter of Intent
      stated that _St{e'}phane_ is the submitter's legal name, but no
      documentation, such as a copy of the submitter's legal
      identification, was provided in the submission packet. In
      addition, the legal name on the submission form omitted the
      acute accent.

      Without documentation to show that the spelling with the accent
      is plausible in our period, or that it is the submitter's legal
      name, we cannot register the submitted spelling. We have changed
      the given name to the attested form "St_e_phane" to register
      this name. This form is found both in England and France in the
      FamilySearch Historical Records.

  Ambrose Wyld. Device. Quarterly azure and sable, three wolf's teeth
  issuant from sinister and in canton a mullet of four points argent.

  Avina Ramsey. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and vert, a
  natural panther passant contourny sable and three musical notes
  argent.

  Boris Borisov. Name and device. Gules, a wolf's head erased between
  three mullets of eight points argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the mullets more regularly
      with a central symmetry.

  Ceara ingen Chonaill. Alternate name Katherine Margery Laird.

      The submitter requested authenticity for a 16th century
      Scottish/English name. This request was not summarized in the
      Letter of Intent. Luckily for the submitter, we had enough
      information to consider this request instead of pending the name
      for further commentary. As documented in the Letter of Intent,
      this name is authentic for late 16th C England, c.1590.

      _Laird_ is used to describe owners of Scottish estates. This
      term is used in period, with examples found in the _Records of
      the Parliaments of Scotland to 1707_. An example from 1546
      (http://www.rps.ac.uk/mss/1546/7/63) shows the use of _Laird_
      and _lord_ in the same document, but not used interchangeably.

      SENA PN4B1 states:

           Names may not contain an element or group of elements
           that create the appearance of a claim to have a
           specific protected rank or title that the submitter
           does not possess within the Society, even if that name
           element or elements are attested. Those titles which
           are so protected can be found in the List of Alternate
           Titles.

           Bynames which are identical to titles used in the
           Society are generally not allowed for individuals who
           do not have that rank. Relatively minor changes to the
           form of the byname can remove the appearance of a
           claim to rank.

      _Laird_ does not appear in the List of Alternate Titles.
      Although it is related etymologically to the protected title
      _Lord_, it does not have the same meaning and was not used
      interchangeably with it. Even if it were, the submitter has an
      Award of Arms, and would be permitted to use a byname meaning
      "lord" under SENA. In addition, the byname _Laird_ was used by
      normal individuals in period. Therefore, this byname is not
      presumptuous and this alternate name can be registered.

  Dante da Monte. Device. Argent, a sinister wing terminating in a
  hand azure sustaining a sword fesswise sable.

  Diana Ewan. Device. Azure, on a chief Or three thistles proper.

  Eadric the Younger. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Einarr blo{dh} hrafn. Name and device. Argent, two chevronels per
  pale sable and gules between three raven's heads erased contourny
  sable.

      Submitted as "Einarr blo_d_ hrafn", we note that the correct
      spelling of the first byname is "blo_{dh}_". We have made this
      correction to register this name.

  Gaufroi De Fleur. Name and device. Purpure, two keys in saltire Or
  and in chief a bee Or marked sable.

      Although the submitted form of the byname, _De Fleur_, is
      registerable, the more likely form is _de Fleur_. If the
      submitter prefers the typical capitalization, she can submit a
      request for reconsideration.

  Genevieve de la Marre. Device. Argent, on an amphora purpure a bee
  Or marked sable.

  Hugh ap Rhys. Badge. (Fieldless) A drawn bow bendwise sinister with
  arrow nocked Or.

  Iona Azur Drake. Name and device. Argent, a dragon's head caboshed
  azure between flaunches sable.

  Isabel de Carvalhal. Name and device. Or, three oak leaves inverted
  vert and a chief invected sable.

      Nice 16th century Portuguese name!

  Julien de la Fontaine. Name.

      Submitted as "Julien de _L_a Fontaine", we have not seen
      examples of the byname or locative phrase _de La Fontaine_,
      using the submitted capitalization, until after our period.
      Every example that could be found used consistent capitalization
      for the preposition and definite article: "de _l_a Fontaine".
      Therefore, we have made this change to register this name.

  Malcolm Mac Matha. Name and device. Or, a brown bear rampant proper
  between three cinquefoils gules, a bordure azure.

      Although the standardized Gaelic form of the byname would be
      "_m_ac Matha", capitalization in the Irish Annals is extremely
      variable. Therefore, we are able to register this name as
      submitted.

      The submitter may wish to know that a wholly Gaelic form of this
      name is _M{a'}el Coluim mac Matha_. If he prefers this form, he
      can submit a request for reconsideration.

      This name combines an English given name and Gaelic byname. This
      is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

  Mandelyn Scarlett Mor. Device. Sable, two lions combattant argent.

      Nice device!

  Misha Savinskii. Name.

  P{a'}traic {O'} Ceallaigh. Exchange of device and badge.

      The submitter's old device, "Sable, on a bend sinister between
      two bulldog's heads caboshed argent, four quatrefoils slipped
      vert", is now his badge and the submitter's old badge, "Checky
      sable and argent, a quatrefoil slipped and a bordure vert", is
      now his device.

  Remy de Palma. Name and device. Azure, a winged lion segreant
  contourny Or, a chief erminois.

      This name combines a French given name and Spanish byname. This
      is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

  Rowland Taylor. Device. Per chevron argent and vert, two pairs of
  arrows in saltire and a bear's head couped counterchanged.

  Sara Longbothom. Name.

      _Sara_ was documented in the Letter of Intent as an early 14th
      century name found in Withycombe. It is also a mid-16th century
      name dated within 7 years of the byname in the FamilySearch
      Historical Records.

      Nice 16th century English name!

  Sorcha ingen Flaind. Name and device. Azure, three dunghill cocks
  and a chief embattled Or.

      Normally the first letter of the father's name (in the genitive,
      or possessive, form) would be lenited, making the byname "ingen
      F_h_laind", but in this case many period examples omit the
      lenition. Thus, this name can be registered as submitted.

      We note that this form of the name combines an Early Modern
      Irish Gaelic given name (appropriate for after c.1200) with an
      Old or Middle Irish Gaelic byname (appropriate prior to c.1200).
      The submitter may wish to know that an entirely Early Modern
      Gaelic form of this name is _Sorcha inghean Flainn_. If she
      prefers this form, she can submit a request for reconsideration.

  Aleyn Crawley. Name.

      _Aleyn_ was documented as a 15th century given name in the
      Letter of Intent (citing Withycombe). It is also a late 13th
      century name found in "Index of Names in the 1292 Subsidy Roll
      of London" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/english/london1292.html).

      The Letter of Intent did not document the submitted spelling of
      the byname _Crawley_. The submitted form is found in Watts, s.n.
      Crawley, dated from 1272.

      Nice 13th century English name!

  Alianora Jehannette des Amandiers. Name.

      The submitter wanted a byname meaning "of the almond trees".
      However, it was not documented in the Letter of Intent. Ogress
      found a 1574 book published on a street named _la rue des
      Amandiers_, _Les obs{'e}ques et fun{e'}railles de Sigismond
      Auguste, roy de Pologne, dernier d{e'}funct_ by Nicolas du Mont
      (http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k8527979/f5.image).
      Therefore, we can register this name.

      This name combines an English given name and a French given name
      and byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C
      of SENA.

  Beatriu Samira. Name.

  Eyd{i'}s Mark{u'}sard{o'}ttir. Name.

      Submitted as "Eyd{i'}s Mark{u'}_s_d{o'}ttir", the correct
      genitive (possessive) form of the father's name is
      "Mark{u'}_sar_-". We have made this change in order to register
      this name.

  Geraint ap Hywel Glyndyfrdwy. Device. Per pale gules and Or, a lion

      Both elements can be found in England in 1570 and 1586, and in

      this an excellent 16th century English or German name!

**** EALDORMERE acceptances ****

  Eluned verch Angor. Name change from holding name Eluned of
  Caldrithig and badge. Vert, a goose contourny and an orle argent.

      The Letter of Intent stated that _Angor_ is a 6th century name
      found in the 13th century poem _Y Gododdin_. Metron Ariston
      noted in commentary that this instance appears to be a place
      name, not a personal name, citing a footnote in a 19th century
      edition of this poem
      (http://www.gutenberg.org/files/9842/9842-h/9842-h.htm):

           "Angor," from _ang_ and _gor_; lit. a _staying round_,
           which indicates the city in question to have been of a
           circular form. Probably it was one of the forts which
           are so commonly seen on our hills.

      _Angor_ is also the modern Welsh word for "anchor". The same
      edition of _Y Gododdin_ mentions a similar name, that of the 6th
      century warrior _Angar Mab Caw_, citing _Chwedlau'r Doethion_
      (Iolo MSS. pp. 256, 554). As the prior return did not mention
      this issue, however, we have registered the name as submitted
      instead of changing to the correct form. If the submitter
      prefers the spelling _Angar_, she can submit a request for
      reconsideration.

  Giovanni de Enzinas. Badge. (Fieldless) A sinister wing with a hand
  issuant maintaining a sword argent.

  Martin Bildner. Name (see RETURNS for badge).

      _Bildner_ ("sculptor") was documented in the Letter of Intent as
      an occupation found in a 1535 dictionary. Commenters also found
      the name _Jonas ein Bildner_ in _Ein Christliche, tr{o:}stliche
      vnd sehr nutzliche au{sz}legung vber den Propheten vnd
      Bu{sz}prediger Jonam_, published in 1571 (p. 75;
      https://books.google.com/books?id=cUhYAAAAcAAJ). Appendix A of
      SENA notes that occupational and descriptive bynames in German
      usually omit the definite article. Therefore, we can register
      this name as submitted.

  Pompeia Kar{i^}na. Device. Purpure, a sheaf of arrows inverted and
  on a chief argent three triangles inverted purpure.

  Antonii Machinevik. Alternate name Kenny Lockin of Logan.

  Arne Ulrichsson. Name and device. Per fess embattled gules and
  sable, three crosses fleury and an eagle Or.

      _Arne_ was documented in the Letter of Intent as a German given
      name, which is compatible with the Swedish last name under
      Appendix C of SENA.

      The submitter may wish to know that _Arne_ is found in Sweden
      dated from 1341 (SMP, s.n. Arne), so this name is also wholly
      Swedish.

  Ayleth le Frye. Name.

      Both elements are dated to 1332, making this an excellent 14th
      century English name!

  Brynjolfr Rorikssen. Name and device. Quarterly argent and vert, a
  ram's head cabossed quarterly sable and argent.

      _Rorik_ was documented as a possibly normalized Frisian given
      name, but no documentation to support the formation of the
      patronymic byname was provided in the Letter of Intent. The
      byname _Rorikessone_ is found in the _Diplomatarium Danicum_,
      dated to 1411. _R{o/}rikss{o/}n_ is found in the same source
      dated to 1401, in a text written in Old Danish. The patronymic
      ending _-sen_ is found in this source, in an Old Danish text
      dated to 1401. Therefore, _Rorikssen_ is a reasonable early 15th
      century Danish spelling.

      The submitted form _Brynj{o'}lfr_ is an earlier Old Norse form
      recorded in Iceland. The submitter may wish to know that the
      Danish form _Bryniolff_ is documented to 1409 in _Diplomatarium
      Danicum_. If the submitter prefers this form of the name, he can
      submit a request for reconsideration.

  Dragonship Haven, Barony of. Badge (see RETURNS for order name).
  (Fieldless) A woman passant contourny maintaining a drinking horn
  Or.

  Dragonship Haven, Barony of. Order name Order of Saint Martin of
  Dragonship Haven and badge. Azure, on a sun argent a capital letter
  M azure.

      Submitted as "Order of Saint Martin", this order name conflicts
      with the registered branch name _March of Saint Martin_. We have
      added the branch name _of Dragonship Haven_ is order to clear
      this conflict and register this name.

      As the branch name was added, we decline to rule whether the
      submitted form presumed upon the island of Saint Martin (claimed
      for Spain by Columbus in 1493) or the 14th century Brotherhood
      of St. Martin founded by a cathedral in Utrecht, Netherlands.

  Dragonship Haven, Barony of. Badge. (Fieldless) In saltire a pair of
  scissors and a smith's hammer argent.

  Dragonship Haven, Barony of. Badge for Order of the Keel. Per fess

  Lyssa ingen Fh{a'}el{a'}in. Device. Vert, an owl displayed and in

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a bird other

  sable, a stag's head cabossed and a broad-arrow argent.

  Sabiha al-Nahdiya. Badge. Per pale wavy sable crusilly formy and
  argent semy of water bougets gules.

  Tatiana Hopfen. Name.

      _Tatiana_ is the name of a 12th century Italian saint, known at
      least until the early 17th century.

      This name combines an Italian saint's name with a German byname.
      This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

  Terren of Tir. Name.

      Submitted as "Terren _of TIR_" (where _TIR_ is an acronym), the
      name was changed in kingdom to "Terren_ Tir_" with the
      submitter's permission to use an attested byname.

      Commenters were unable to document or construct the byname in
      the submitter's preferred capitalization, so we could not
      restore the name to the submitted form.

      The Latin phrase _archiepiscopo de Tyr_ ("archbishop of Tyre")
      is found in 'The chronicle: 1187-1214', _Annales Cestrienses
      Chronicle of the Abbey of S. Werburg, At Chester_ (pp. 36-49,
      http://www.british-history.ac.uk/lancs-ches-record-soc/vol14/pp36-49),
      dated to 1188. Tyre was part of the Crusader state of the
      Kingdom of Jerusalem. At least one archbishop of Tyre was
      English, so the vernacular _of Tyr_ is an appropriate 12th
      century English form of the attested locative phrase. _Tir_ is a
      reasonable interpolation of the attested forms _Tyr_, _Tire_,
      and _Tyre_, all found in the Middle English Dictionary.
      Therefore, we have changed the byname to "of Tir", which is
      identical in sound and closer to appearance to the submitted
      form, in order to register this name.

  {TH}orsteinn Hro{dh}bjartsson. Name.

  Tighearn{a'}n Blackwater. Name change from Tighearain Blackwater and
  badge. Azure, a talbot's head erased ermine and a bordure
  counter-compony gules and argent.

      _Blackwater_ is grandfathered to the submitter.

      The submitter's previous name, _Tighearain Blackwater_, is
      released.

  Vivien de Valois. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 15th century French.
      Both the given name and byname are dated to 1421, so this name
      meets the submitter's request.

  Wynfl{ae}d {ae}t Hamtunscire. Name.

      Submitted as "Wynfl_ae_d _aet_ Hamtunsci_r_", the given name was
      changed to "Wynfl_{ae}_d" to match the documentation that could
      be found.

      The correct form of the locative byname is "_{ae}_t
      Hamtunsci_re_", using the dative form of the place name instead
      of the nominative (base) form. We have made these changes in
      order to register this name.

  gryphons sable three suns Or.

      Submitted as "Lucien _D_u Mont", the submitter requested
      authenticity for a 12th to 14th century French name. This
      request was not summarized in the Letter of Intent. Luckily for
      the submitter, we had enough information to consider this
      request without pending the name for further research.

      Both _Lucien_ and _du Mont_ are found in the 1292 Census of
      Paris. We have changed the capitalization of the preposition
      (from "_D_u" to "_d_u") to meet the submitter's request for an
      authentic name. This name is authentic for late 13th century
      France.

  Medb ingen ind Iasachta. Name and device. Azure, a unicorn passant
  argent crined Or and on a chief argent three mullets azure.

  Nerienda de Ferlega. Blanket permission to conflict with device. Per
  pale Or and argent.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict to any armory that
      is not identical to her registered armory.

  Nerienda of Farleigh. Name and device. Per pale Or and argent.

      Submitted as "Nerienda de F_a_rl_eigh_", _Nerienda_ was
      documented as the name of an abbess from 699 in Marieke van de
      Dal's "Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters"
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/). We
      note that this name may be a religious pseudonym, as _neriende_
      is the Old English word for "salvation, redemption"
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=rwLYx4gYfr0C&pg=PA1206). No
      other instances of this name could be found, and we have no
      evidence that this name was a saint's name. Therefore, the given
      name cannot be combined with elements dated after 1199.

      The earliest example of _-leigh_ that was found was dated to
      1288 in the MED, in the name _Ric. ate Leigh_. Therefore, the
      temporal gap between the given name and the submitted form of
      the place name (_Farleigh_) is greater than 500 years. The
      submitter allowed a change to "of Farleigh", the lingua Anglica
      form of _de Ferlega_. _Ferlega_ is found in the Domesday Book,
      and is temporally compatible with the given name. We have made
      this change in order to register this name.

      Nice device!

      This device is registerable as there is, on this Letter of
      Acceptances and Returns, a blanket permission from Edward
      Langhere to conflict with his device: _Per pale Or and azure_.

  Oleg Brazhnikov. Name.

  Peter MacAskill of Skye. Name change from holding name Peter of
  Riverhaven.

      Submitted as "Peter Mac_Ka_skill_ _", the submitted name was
      identical in sound to one of the submitter's use names. The
      submitter allowed a change to "Peter Mac_A_skill _of Skye_" in
      order to use an attested form of the first byname and to modify
      the name so that it did not resemble a use name.

      This name was pended to allow commenters to consider a request
      for an authentic Scottish name. This name, as modified, is
      authentic for Scotland in the 16th century, meeting the
      submitter's request.

      This name was pended from the December 2015 Letter of
      Acceptances and Returns.

  Qutham Kh{a^}m{u^}sh. Name.

      Nice Persian name!

  Robert Calis. Name and device. Or, in pale a mountain couped sable

  closed and in base a dagger bendwise inverted Or, a bordure
  erminois.

  Sybella Gourdon. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Falchion and badge.
  Per bend sinister argent and Or, a falchion bendwise gules.

      _Falchion_ is a lingua Anglica form of this charge name.

  Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Golden Beacon and
  badge. Per bend sinister azure and Or, a lamp argent enflamed Or.

      This badge does not conflict with a badge of Tir Ysgithr:
      _(Fieldless) An Arabian lamp flamant argent_. There is a DC for
      fielded versus fieldless design and another DC for the
      difference between a default heraldic lamp and an Arabian lamp.

      Similarly, it does not conflict with the device of Thomas
      Ouswood: _Vert, a lantern argent enflamed Or_. There is a DC for
      changing the field and another DC for the difference between a
      lamp and a lantern.

  Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Gules Anchor and
  badge. Per bend sinister argent and Or, an anchor bendwise gules.

  Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Order name Order of the Sail of Ynys Fawr and
  badge. Azure, a sail fastened to its mast and hanging from its
  yardarm Or.

      Nice badge!

**** MERIDIES acceptances ****

  Adelaide of Iron Mountain. Alternate name Adelaide Colette de
  Monferrer.

      Submitted as "Adelaide Colette _Heraut_ du Monferrer", the
      byname _Heraut_ was removed by kingdom because the use of the
      tile _Heraut_ with a place name gives the appearance of a form
      of a name and title. PN4B5 of SENA states:

           Similarly, while _Kingdom_, _London_, and _Herald_ can
           all be documented as both given names and bynames,
           _Kingdom Marshall_, _London Herald_ and _Herald of
           Wyvernwoode_ all give the impression of claiming rank
           or official position and would not be registerable.

      Therefore, we are unable to restore the first byname.

  Adelaide of Iron Mountain. Badge. Per pale bendy argent and azure
  and azure.

      Nice badge!

  Alffenn Raven Spykarnell. Name.

      Submitted as "A_L_ffenn _r_aven Spykarnell", the name was
      changed by kingdom to "A_l_ffenn _R_aven Spykarnell" to use the
      typical capitalization seen in the 16th century.

      The spelling _Spykarnell_ can be interpolated from the attested
      spellings _Spyakarnell_, found in the FamilySearch Historical
      Records, and _Spykarnell'_ (which expands to _Spykarnelle_),
      found in _Churchwardens' Accounts of S. Edmund & S. Thomas,
      Sarum, 1443-1702_
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=awRNAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA279) in
      1557/58. Therefore, we can registered the submitted form of the
      byname.

  Aminah bint Malik. Device. Argent, a swan naiant and on a base
  nebuly sable a rose argent.

  Caius Aurelius. Name and device. Vert, in pale a boar courant

      Nice Roman name!

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a lightning
      bolt outside of a thunderbolt.

  Caterina Angelica Galilei. Name and device. Sable, on a bend argent
  between a sun in its splendor and a moon in its plenitude Or three
  mullets palewise azure.

      Please advise the submitter to draw deeper and more consistent

  Gwenonwy verch Ivor. Device. Bendy sinister gules and argent, an
  ounce rampant and in canton a bee azure.

  Helena Alexandra of River March. Name and device. Gyronny gules and
  argent, a horse rampant contourny and an orle sable.

      Submitted as "Helena _Alaina_ Alexandra of Rive_rm_arch", the
      name was changed in kingdom to "Helena_ _Alexandra of
      Rivermarch" in order to use a documentable pattern. Although the
      submitter did not allow major changes, such as the dropping of
      an element, she specifically authorized this change.

      The name _Alaina_ was not found in the article cited on the
      submission form. Therefore, we are unable to restore this
      element.

      The registered branch name is "River_ M_arch". We have changed
      the byname to this form to register this name.

  Kristopher of Marion Glen. Name and device. Argent, on a Latin cross
  sable a sword inverted Or, a chief gules.

      _Marion Glen_ is the registered name of an SCA branch.

**** MIDDLE acceptances ****

  Hadley of Beckenham. Name.

      The Letter of Intent claimed that _Hadley_ is the submitter's
      legal mundane name, and that a copy of the submitter's driver's
      license was provided by the submitter, but this documentation
      was not included in the packet. In addition, the Letter of
      Intent did not state what type of name it was (i.e., given name,
      middle name, or byname). This does not meet the requirements for
      documenting a legal name found in the June 2015 Cover Letter.

      Luckily for the submitter, _Hadley_ is also an attested late
      period English surname, found in the FamilySearch Historical
      Records. Therefore, the submitter need not rely on the legal
      name allowance.

      _Beckenham_ was documented as a lingua Anglica form. In
      commentary, this form was documented to 1624, also in the
      FamilySearch Historical Records.

  Lydia Wynne. Name and device. Argent, a domestic cat rampant
  contourny sable, a bordure vert.

      Nice 16th century English name!

  S{o'}ma Hj{a'}lmarsd{o'}ttir. Name.

  Wulfwen atte Belle. Badge. (Fieldless) In pale a tentacle vert
  issuant from a boot sable and maintaining a spoon fesswise reverse
  Or.

      Although no evidence was presented of a tentacle used as a
      charge in medieval heraldry, there is a pattern of animal limbs,
      such as legs, wings, or arms, used as charges in period. In this
      case, the tentacle retains its identifiability.

======================================================================

**** NORTHSHIELD acceptances ****

  Anneis de Carcassone. Name.

      The place name _Carcassone_ was documented to the late 13th
      century in the Letter of Intent. It is also found in _Cartulaire
      et archives des communes de l'ancien dioc{'e}se et de
      l'arrondissement administratif de Carcassonne_, vol. 5 (ed. M.
      Mahul; https://books.google.com/books?id=4_ZCAAAAcAAJ), in a
      modern transcription of a Latin document dated to 1196.

      The submitter requested authenticity for a 12th century French
      name. _Anneis_ is a late 12th century Anglo-Norman name and _de
      Carcassone_ is a 12th-13th century French locative byname, so
      this name does not meet the submitter's request for an authentic
      French name, but it is registerable.

  Colban MacGillis. Name.

  Cristoforo Alfonso Pallavincino da Firenze. Badge. (Fieldless) A
  cobra's head affronty within and issuant from an annulet argent.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a cobra's
      head. While the snake was known to period Europeans, it is not
      native to Europe and there are no known examples of its use in
      period armory.

  Cristoforo Alfonso Pallavincino da Firenze. Badge. (Fieldless) On a
  sun argent a goutte de sang.

  Ginevra Maddalena di Tomaso Volpe. Name and device. Per bend

  two rapiers purpure a bee proper.

      Nice late 16th century German name!

  Anne Bigod. Badge. (Fieldless) An ermine spot sable enfiling a
  pearled coronet Or pearled argent.

      The submitter is a court baroness and thus entitled to the
      display of a coronet on her heraldry.

  Ansteys Darcy. Name change from Anstes Darcy.

      The submitter's previous name, _Anstes Darcy_, is released.

  Baldwin Maynard Wilson. Name and device. Argent, a boar's head
  erased sable and on a point pointed fleury at the point azure a
  Latin cross fourchy argent.

  F{a'}lki {A'}sgeirsson. Name and device. Gules, a bend between two
  scorpions bendwise sinister, heads to center argent.

      While this particular type of symmetry is uncommon, Orle was
      able to provide some period examples.

  Franziskus Becker von Schweinfurt. Name.

  statant erect affronty argent and a bordure gules.

  Gianina The Wanderer. Badge. Per fess indented gules and sable, a
  phoenix Or and two scimitars in saltire argent, a bordure embattled
  Or.

  Giovanni Prete. Name.

      Both elements are found in the Condado of 1427, making this an
      excellent 15th century Florentine name!

  Gormr Ragnvaldsson. Name.

  Katherine le Fayre atte Watere. Name.

      The submitter preferred the form _Katherine atte Watere_. This
      name conflicts in sound with the registered name _Kateline atte
      Water_, although the names are different in appearance.
      _Katherine_ can be pronounced several ways, including
      "Kath-er-in" and "Kath-rin". In the latter, although we have
      changed both syllables, they are adjacent changes and don't
      affect more than two letters or sounds. Therefore, we cannot
      clear these names under PN3C1 of SENA.

  Kathryn of Southwick. Name and device. Purpure, on a chevron between
  two pawprints and a domestic cat sejant argent, three irises
  palewise purpure slipped and leaved vert.

      Both the given name and byname are found in Lincoln in 1587
      (FamilySearch Historical Records), making this an excellent 16th
      century English name!

      There is a step from period practice for the use of pawprints.

  Konrad von Alpirsbach. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      The place name _Alpirsbach_ was not documented in the Letter of
      Intent or in commentary in this form, except as a modern header
      form or normalized form.

      {AE}lfwynn Leofl{ae}de dohtor documented the spelling
      _Alpirspach_ in Latin in the founding agreement for the town
      monastery, dated to 1099 (http://www.wubonline.de/?wub=388).
      German place names frequently use _-pach_ and _-bach_
      interchangeably. For example, the towns _Kaserbach_ and
      _Raspach_ are found in the _Codex minor traditionum
      Weingartensium_, dated to the c.1095
      (http://www.wubonline.de/?wub=51). Therefore, the submitted
      spelling _Alpirsbach_ is also plausible at this time.

  Matilda Beresford. Device. Erminois, a bear rampant purpure.

  Nasr ibn 'Isa. Reblazon of device. Argent, on a fess vert between a
  sword fesswise sheathed in its scabbard azure hilted Or and a cup
  throughout azure charged with two cups in fess Or, the Arabic words
  "al-masira wa al-sarfiya" argent.

      Registered in April of 1994 as "Argent, on a fess vert between
      in chief a sword proper sheathed and hilted, and in base on a
      cup throughout azure two cups Or, the Arabic words "al-masira wa
      al-sarfiya" argent", the sword is essentially azure with Or
      accents.

  Outlands, Kingdom of the. Order name Order of Vangard of the
  Outlands and badge. Vert, a sword inverted argent surmounted by a
  beehive, a bordure embattled Or.

      Submitted as "Order of Vang_ua_rd of the Outlands", the Letter
      of Intent documented the spelling "Vang_a_rd". We have changed
      to the attested form to register this order name.

  Pettronella P{a'}rtasz{o:}v{o~}. Badge. Potenty en pointe purpure
  and argent, a peacock in his pride proper and a bordure azure.

  Reyna Frogge. Device. Azure, a frog argent and a bordure argent semy
  of seebl{a:}tter points outward azure.

      There is a step from period practice for the charges on the
      bordure arranged in radial symmetry, neither palewise nor
      following the line of the bordure (either of which was found in
      period armory).

  Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani. Household name Bayt
  al-`Askar{i-} and badge. Or, three lozenges and on a chief
  triangular azure a scimitar fesswise reversed Or.

**** TRIMARIS acceptances ****

  Clovis B{a:}ren J{a:}ger. Name change from holding name Clovis of
  Wyvernwoode.

      Submitted as "Clovis B{a:}re_nj_{a:}ger", the submitter
      requested authenticity for "period of Charlemagne (if possible)
      in Frankish". Unfortunately, this name does not meet this
      request.

      The given name _Clovis_ was documented in the Letter of Intent
      from an article that relied on normalized forms of some of the
      names ("Early Germanic Names from Primary Sources" by Magistra
      Nicolaa de Bracton of Leicester;
      http://nicolaa5.tripod.com/articles/german.html). It was also
      documented as an early 17th century French name found in the
      FamilySearch Historical Records.

      We have very little documentation of the Frankish language.
      Charlemagne's reign occurred just as Frankish was being replaced
      by Old French and Old High German as the spoken languages. In
      commentary, Green Mantle noted that _Clovis_ is a later French
      form of this name, and documented several early forms of this
      name. Examples included the Latinized form _Chlodovechus_ used
      by Gregory of Tours in the 6th century, and a reconstructed
      Frankish form, _Hlodowig_, found in a Wikipedia article that
      itself references Alain de Benoist, _Dictionnaire des
      pr{e'}noms, d'hier et aujourd'hui, d'ici et d'ailleurs_, p. 294.

      In addition, we have no evidence to show that _B{a:}renj{a:}ger_
      ("bear hunter") is a plausible occupational byname in Frankish
      or German in our period. Therefore, the byname was changed to a
      double byname, "B{a:}ren_ J_{a:}ger", to register this name.
      Both _B{a:}ren_ and _J{a:}ger_ were documented in the original
      Letter of Intent using FamilySearch.

      This name combines a French given name with two German bynames.
      This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

      This name was pended from the December 2015 Letter of
      Acceptances and Returns.

**** WEST acceptances ****

  Akbar Khayamm. Reblazon of device. Pean, on a sun Or a wolf's head
  erased sable.

      Reblazoned as "Pean, on _ sun Or a wolf's head erased sable." on
      the July 2008 LoAR, we are adding the article.

  Catherine de Mailly. Name change from holding name Catherine of
  Golden Rivers.

      This name was pended to allow discussion of whether it conflicts
      with the registered name _Katherine O'Mally_ when _de Mailly_ is
      Anglicized to something like "de Mail-ee" instead of the French
      pronunciation "de May-ee".

      In particular, we requested commentary on whether the change
      from _O'_ to _de_ is enough to clear this name under PN3C2 of
      SENA, which states:

           Names are substantially different if a single syllable
           between them (excluding articles and prepositions,
           such as de and the) is changed in both sound and
           appearance as described here. The addition or removal
           of a syllable makes two names substantially different
           in sound. Two names are also substantially different
           if a syllable is substantially changed in sound and
           appearance. This means that the vowel and the
           consonant (or group of consonants) on one side of the
           vowel is different between the two names. In either
           case, the change in spelling (including addition or
           removal of letters) must affect at least two letters
           in that syllable to be substantial.

      If the names being compared were _O Malley_ versus _de Mailly_,
      only the preposition _de_ is discounted under this standard. The
      removal of _O'_ is a significant change (the removal of a
      syllable), so these names do not conflict.

      This name is also clear under PN3C1 of SENA. The particle _O'_
      has been changed to _de_, and the second syllable of the byname
      has been changed ("Mail-" or "May-" versus "Mal-").

      This name was pended from the December 2015 Letter of
      Acceptances and Returns.

  Safiya bint Zakariya al-Tayyib. Device. Purpure, a needle threaded
  and on a chief Or two mullets of eight points purpure.

***** THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK: *****

**** AN TIR returns ****

  Esme de Blacwatyr. Device. Per chevron throughout wavy argent and
  sable, two roses gules slipped and leaved vert and a caravel argent.

      This device must be returned for having the roses depicted in
      trian aspect. Per SENA A2C1:

           Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a
           period armorial style. In general, this means that
           charges should be drawn as a flat depiction with no
           perspective.

      The use of trian aspect is limited to those charges which
      require it for identifiability, or which have been shown to have
      been depicted in trian aspect in period heraldry. A rose does
      not need to be depicted in trian aspect to be identifiable.

  Esme de Blacwatyr. Badge. (Fieldless) In pale a caravel argent
  conjoined to a rose fesswise gules slipped and leaved vert.

      This badge must be returned for having the rose depicted in
      trian aspect. Per SENA A2C1:

           Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a
           period armorial style. In general, this means that
           charges should be drawn as a flat depiction with no

      The use of trian aspect is limited to those charges which

      been depicted in trian aspect in period heraldry. A rose does
      not need to be depicted in trian aspect to be identifiable.

  Kesa of Etelk{o:}z. Device. Or fretty engrailed gules.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Blazoned as fretty engrailed, the lack of internal detailing
      renders the design confusing and some commenters interpreted it
      as a semy.

  M{u'}sa-{TH}{o'}ra. Badge. (Fieldless) A cedar tree azure.

      This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Morberie
      of Tor Denly: _Argent, a Crequier plant azure_. Although
      crequiers are generally considered to conflict with round-shaped
      trees, Morberie's crequier is mostly triangular and thus there
      is only one DC for fieldless versus fielded design.

  William Cristofore of Devonshire. Badge. (Fieldless) A Maltese cross
  argent surmounted by a pheon azure.

      This badge is returned for having a "barely overall" charge.
      SENA Appendix I, Charge Group Theory, in defining overall
      charges states "An overall charge must have a significant
      portion on the field; a design with a charge that has only a
      little bit sticking over the edges of an underlying charge is
      known as "barely overall" and is not registerable." Here, more
      of the pheon is on the cross than on the field.

      points elongated to base Or and two lilies crossed in saltire
      slipped argent_. In both cases, we have three co-primary
      charges. There is no DC for changing the tincture of only the
      chiefmost of the charges. There is also no DC for changing the
      type of the chiefmost of the charges. The stems, or lack
      thereof, do not count for a DC. Thus there is only one DC for
      arrangement as the arrangement of charges in Anastasia's armory
      is not one that is defined to have a SC from in bend in SENA
      A5CE4.

  Beaune de la Sorse. Badge. Per fess argent and sable, four pallets

  base argent.

      This badge is returned for violating SENA A3D2b which states
      "... a single charge group may not mix ordinaries with
      non-ordinaries... ". Because the pallets and arm are on each
      side of the line of division, they can only be understood as
      belonging to the same primary charge group.

      We note that _Per fess paly argent and gules and sable_ would be
      an acceptable divided field.

  Borealis, Barony of. Order name Order of Young Wolf.

      Submitted as "Order of _the_ Young Wolf", the order name was
      changed by kingdom to "Order of_ _Young Wolf" to use a pattern
      of naming orders after individuals. _Young Wolf_ was documented
      as a full English name. In December 2015, we ruled the
      following:

           Submitted as "_Order_ of _the_ Noble Touch", the
           Letter of Intent documented this order name using the
           pattern of naming an order after a founder or saint,
           and documented _Noble Touch_ as a late period English
           name. However, no evidence was presented to show that
           orders were named after the full names of such
           individuals, rather than just a given name (or _Saint
           [given name]_), or that such an order would include a
           definite article before the name. Without such
           documentation, this name cannot be registered as an
           order name. [Wintermist, Barony of, Company of Noble
           Touch, December 2015, A-Caid]

      In that case, the order name was changed to a household name
      (_Company of Noble Touch_) in order to register it. Similar
      changes in the type of non-personal name were disallowed in the
      same Letter of Acceptances and Returns, so we cannot make this
      type of change in the present submission. Therefore, without
      evidence to show that this order name is plausible, we cannot
      register it. We note that _Order of Youngs Wolf_, using the
      pattern of _person's [charge]_ is registerable. We would change
      it to this form, but this substantially changes the meaning of
      the order name. Instead, we are returning it to allow the barony
      to consider its options.

  Eadric the Younger. Device. Per chevron vert and azure, on a chevron
  argent three mills sable.

      This device is returned for a redraw, for violating the
      guidelines set forth on the May 2011 Cover Letter for a properly
      drawn chevron. The chevron here is too high. Please see that
      Cover Letter for further discussion and details of how to
      properly draw per chevron lines of division.

  Symonne Du Charme. Device. Argent, a heart purpure and overall an
  arrow and a rapier in saltire sable.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Because of the overlap of the handle of the sword with the
      heart, and because the sword and arrow do not have good contrast
      with the heart, the identifiability of the overall charges is
      considerably diminished.

  K{a'}ta in bareyska. Device change. Per fess purpure and vert, a

      This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Willehalm
      B{a:}renj{a:}ger: _Per fess purpure and vert_. Appendix I states
      that peripheral ordinaries, like tierces, cannot be primary
      charges. Thus the only difference with Willehalm's badge is the
      addition of the secondary charge, which only brings one DC.

  Katheryne Winterbourne. Badge. Ermine, three fleurs-de-lys purpure.

      This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Annys
      Moryson: _Per chevron purpure and argent, in base three
      fleurs-de-lys one and two purpure_. There is one DC for changing
      the field but the fleurs in Annys's device are forced to base
      and so there cannot be a DC for changing the arrangement.

**** EALDORMERE returns ****

  Martin Bildner. Badge. Gules, in pall three krummhorns overlapped at
  the bells between three trilliums argent.

      This badge is returned for not being reliably blazonable, which
      is a violation of SENA A1C which requires an emblazon to be
      describable in heraldic terms. Blazoned in the Letter of Intent
      as _crumhorns intertwined at the base_, there is no heraldic way
      of describing the precise arrangement of the krummhorns. They
      cannot be described as a triskelion of krummhorns, because by
      definition, the limbs of a triskelion are bent or embowed; these
      are straight. It is not three krummhorns fretted in triangle, as
      we see for fish: in addition to not forming a triangle, they are
      not actually fretted.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of New World
      trilliums.

**** EAST returns ****

  Dragonship Haven, Barony of. Order name Order of Freya's Cup.

      In 2013 we ruled:

           In August of 2005, the use of orders named after pagan
           deities and "saints" was allowed but ruled a step from
           period practice. Under SENA, there are no steps from
           period practice for names. Given that order names were
           derived from classical references (like the _Golden
           Fleece_) and from the names of saints, we will
           continue to allow order names to use the names of
           pagan gods and other figures that would have been
           venerated in those places that had order names. [East
           Kingdom, Order of Artemis, June 2013, A-East]

      NPN1Cd1 of SENA states:

           The name phrase must be shown to be a form by which
           the entity was known in that time and place. Generally
           this means finding it in the literature of that time
           (so a Renaissance Italian Bible, or an English
           publication of an Arthurian romance). In the case of a
           saint's name, evidence for their veneration through
           the naming of churches is generally sufficient. Only
           the form of the name used in that culture is permitted
           under this allowance.

           For example, the Greek mythological object known in
           English as the _Golden Fleece_ was known to the
           medieval French as the _Toison d'Or_. It is _Toison
           d'Or_ that was borrowed for the name of the period
           Burgundian order. Similarly, the saint known in her
           lifetime as _{AE}helthryth_ was venerated by late
           period English people as _Audrey_. _Audrey_ is the
           form allowed in late period English context to create
           a name like the _College of Saint Audrey_.

      By long precedent, we do not allow the creation of lingua
      Anglica forms of given names. We have to document the name
      _Freya_, and cannot register the form _Freya's Cup_ because it
      uses a modern apostrophe. In addition, NPN1C2 of SENA states
      that the substantive element is a name phrase; the entire phrase
      must be either in a period form or a lingua Anglica form, but
      not a mixture of the two. Therefore, we need to document
      _Freyas_ as a period genitive (possessive) form for the same
      time and place as the period English term _Cup_. Unfortunately,
      we could not find evidence that the spelling _Freya_ was known
      in England at a time when order names were used there. Without
      this documentation, we cannot register _Order of Freyas Cup_.

      _Cup_ was not documented as a period form. This spelling is
      found in the MED, s.v. cuppe, dated to around 1425.

      Upon resubmission, the submitter might like to know that the
      mythological _Freya_ is found in Stephani Johannis Stephanii,
      _Notae uberiores in Historiam Danicam Saxonis Grammatici_ (a
      Latin edition of _Gesta Danorum_ from 1645), in earlier Latin
      translations of _Gesta Danorum_, and in various adaptations of
      the _Gesta Danorum_ published in France in the 16th century.
      Therefore, _Order of Freya_ could be registered as a Danish or
      French order name. English forms of the goddess' name are
      documented in the late 13th to mid-15th centuries in the Middle
      English Dictionary: _Frea_, _frie_, _frye_, and _ffre_.
      Something like _Order of Freas Cup_ would also be registerable
      as an English order name. We are returning this order name so
      that the barony can consider its options.

  Adelindis filia Gotefridi. Reblazon of device. Gules, a pile between
  two lioness's faces Or.

      The submitter requested a blazon change from their device
      registration, "Gules, a pile between two ounce's faces Or" in
      order to prevent future confusion in the depiction. However, no
      evidence was provided that lionesses were blazoned as such in
      period and we have been pretty consistent in not blazoning
      female animals. The exceptions are almost always cases where
      genders show significant dimorphism, such as stags vs hinds.
      This does not apply to this case.

  Casse de la Rose. Device. Per chevron ploy{e'} argent semy of roses
  azure and sable, a dagger proper.

      This device is returned for conflict with the device of
      Ekaterina Tatiana Aleksandrovna: _Per chevron argent semy of
      roses azure and sable, a natural tiger rampant argent marked
      sable crowned argent_. There is only one DC for the change of
      type of charge from a tiger to a sword. In each case, the semy
      and the single charge are part of a single primary charge group.
      Under A5C2d, only one DC can be given for changes affecting
      "half" a charge group under these conditions. Thus, we do not
      have to consider whether there is additional difference, for the
      crown for example. The crown, being argent and worn by an argent
      beast, appears to be part of the charge and does not count for
      difference. Swords proper are considered argent and thus there
      is no DC for tincture. Additionally, there is by precedent no DC
      for the difference between a _per chevron ploy{e'}_ and a plain
      _per chevron_ line of division.

  Giana della Mora. Device. Per pale sable and argent, two domestic
  cats sejant respectant each with one paw raised counterchanged and a
  chief gules.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable". The
      fact that the cats are silhouettes with no internal details
      critically impairs their identifiability. Combined with their
      rather bushy tails they resemble squirrels.

      Additionally, the lack of detailing also leads to ambiguity in
      the posture of the cats. On resubmission, the submitter should
      draw them in a clearly heraldic posture.

  Ida Noe. Device. Per pale sable and argent, a duck naiant
  counterchanged argent and azure.

      This device is returned for conflict with the device of
      Genevieve Isabeau de Chartres: _Per pale azure and argent, a
      swan naiant counterchanged_. There is a DC for changing the
      field. However, precedent states:

           While both swans and ducks are period charges, swans
           are much more common than ducks. In period emblazons
           it is often difficult, or impossible, to tell the
           difference between the two birds. Thus we do not grant
           a difference between the two. [Catrina Makcrie of
           Berwick, July 2005, R-An Tir]

      Thus there is no DC for the type of bird used.

  Sybella Gourdon. Device. Per fess embattled Or and gules masoned
  sable, in chief a domestic cat passant regardant pean.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable". As
      depicted, the ermine dots are too small to be identifiable.

      This device is also returned for contrast issues. The sable
      masoning has insufficient contrast with the gules portion of the
      field.

  Mara Palmer and Mathias Blaket. Joint household name L{ae}ranh{u'}s.

      This household name was constructed to mean "a house in which

      house_. Without examples to show that this is a plausible
      construction in Old English, this household name cannot be
      registered.

      We also rule that a household name meaning "school" or "school
      house" is too generic to be registered. A name meaning something
      like "learning house" would only be registerable if it did not
      follow a pattern related to generic names for institutions of

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable".
      Commenters were unable to identify the winged chimera, likely
      due to the posture that leads to the three heads being so close
      together. The addition of the wings to the compound monster and
      the presence of the leonine tail only exacerbates the problem.

      This submission is returned administratively. Although

      is only one DC for changing the field. No difference is granted
      for changing the position of the head, no difference is given
      between passant and statant, the arming is not significant
      enough to grant difference, and, by precedent, "we do not grant

  in pale between two martlets in fess counterchanged.

      This device is returned for redraw, for blurring the distinction
      between the primary and secondary charge groups. It is difficult
      to tell if the martlets and the annulets belong to the same
      group or if the annulets are the sole primary group.

      This could potentially be solved by drawing the annulets
      thicker, to give them more visual weight, and the birds slightly

  Mahaut de Bourgogne. Name.

      This name is pended to allow discussion of whether this name
      presumes upon that of Mahaut d'Artois (c.1270-1329), countess of
      Artois and Burgundy, who is less frequently known as _Mahaut of
      Burgundy_ and _Mahaut de Bourgogne_.

      PN4D1 of SENA states:

           A personal name submission is only considered to
           presume on protected personal names. Names of
           important non-SCA individuals are protected from
           presumption. People who are not important enough to
           have an entry in a standard print encyclopedia, such
           as the Encyclopedia Britannica, are generally not
           important enough to protect. Newly famous individuals
           may rarely be considered important enough to protect
           even if they have not yet appeared in a print
           encyclopedia. Individuals who do have an entry must be
           further considered. People are considered important
           enough to protect if they meet the following
           standards.

           Sovereign rulers of significant states are generally
           important enough to protect. Some historical
           city-states are not considered significant states.
           Provinces or regions integrated into larger units like
           the Holy Roman Empire are not generally considered
           significant states. Sovereigns of small states that
           did not give rise directly to modern countries will
           not be protected under this clause, nor will legendary
           kings of any state (though these kings may be
           individually important enough to protect).

           Individuals whose names are recognized by a
           significant number of people in the Society without
           having to look them up in a reference are generally
           important enough to protect. Individuals recognized
           only by specialists in a subject are unlikely to be
           important enough to protect. Individuals who are only
           recognized with the assistance of reference books are
           unlikely to be important enough to protect.

      In this case, the historical Mahaut was countess of Artois,
      married the last count palatine of Burgundy, was the mother of
      two French queens and the great-niece of another (Saint Louis).
      In addition, she served as regent for her son as the count of
      Burgundy and was the sole heir of Artois after her son's death.
      She is particularly well-known in France, as she appears as a
      main character in _Les Rois maudits_ (_The Accursed Kings_), a
      series of historical novels published between 1955 and 1977 by
      Maurice Druon. Two French television series were based on these
      books, most recently in 2005. English editions of _Les Rois
      maudits_ were reissued as recently as last year, and were named
      as a major influence on George R. R. Martin's _A Song of Ice and
      Fire_ novels (and the televised version, _A Game of Thrones_).
      Therefore, the historical Mahaut is also potentially well-known
      outside of Europe through Druon's fictional version.

      Recently, we protected a historical figure who is well known
      through popular culture and books:

           This name presumes upon the historical _Gilles de
           Rais_, also known as _Gilles de Retz_ and _Gilles de
           Rays_. He is best known as a companion of Jeanne d'Arc
           (Joan of Arc) and for being a notorious serial killer
           of children. In addition, he was appointed Marshal of
           France by Charles VII, and was possibly the
           inspiration for the literary character of Bluebeard
           (Encyclopedia Britannica,
           http://www.britannica.com/biography/Gilles-de-Rais).
           The historical Gilles has been the subject of numerous
           books, movies, and video games due to the crimes for
           which he was executed, and is particularly well known
           in Europe. [Giles de Roet, January 2016, R-Lochac]

      Therefore, Mahaut d'Artois's importance should be considered
      both in light of her historical accomplishments and stature, and
      for the fame she has through her fictionalized versions.

      The 12th century Mahaut de Bourgogne, Countess of Grignon, is
      not important enough to protect.

      This was item 10 on the Avacal letter of February 29, 2016.

  Esa Gray. Name.

      The question was raised whether this name presumes upon that of
      19th century botanist _Asa Gray_, one of Charles Darwin's
      collaborators and founder of Harvard's department of botany.

      PN4D1 of SENA states:

           Individuals whose names are recognized by a
           significant number of people in the Society without
           having to look them up in a reference are generally
           important enough to protect. Individuals recognized
           only by specialists in a subject are unlikely to be
           important enough to protect. Individuals who are only
           recognized with the assistance of reference books are
           unlikely to be important enough to protect.

           Individuals whose work and/or life are still
           influential today are generally important enough to
           protect. Those whose work significantly shaped the
           course of world history, science, or the arts are
           generally important enough to protect. This is
           generally measured by examining measures like the
           length of encyclopedia articles about the person and
           his/her work, numbers of search engine hits for the
           individual, and the like.

      We are pending the name to allow commenters to discuss just how
      prominent an individual needs to be to have "significantly
      shaped the course of world history, science, or the arts", given
      that the names of many such individuals may only be known to
      specialists.

      On the one hand for the present submission, Asa Grey's name is
      largely known only by specialists. On the other, Asa Gray's work
      clearly "shaped the course of world science". In particular,
      Gray authored or co-authored the first editions of _Gray's
      Manual_, still the standard text on North American plants. He
      also formed one of the first global networks of naturalists, was
      a founding member of the National Academy of Sciences, and
      arranged for Darwin's _On the Origin of Species_ to be published
      in the United States. He also defended the highly controversial
      theory of evolution and attempted to reconcile it with the
      prevailing theological teachings in a series of essays entitled
      _Darwiniana_. He is widely considered the most important
      American botanist of the 19th century.

      If _Asa Gray_ is important enough to protect, the present
      submission will be returned for presumption, as the two names
      can be identical in sound.

      This name does not conflict with the registered name _Aislinn
      Grey_. One syllable has been substantially changed in sound and
      appearance under PN3C2 of SENA.

      This name also does not conflict with the registered name _Emma
      Grey_. Both syllables of the given name have been changed in
      sound in appearance, so this name is clear under PN3C1 of SENA.

  Kamara Scleraina. Name.

      The given name is a Greek form of an Armenian name, which means
      that the spelling follows Greek conventions. The underlying name
      is that of an 11th century woman in Aristakes Lastivertsi's
      _History: About the Sufferings Visited Upon by Foreign Peoples
      Living Around Us_, written in Armenian between 1072 and 1079.
      The question was raised whether an Armenian given name can be
      combined with a Greek byname. As this lingual mix does not
      appear in Appendix C of SENA, we are pending this name to allow
      commenters to discuss this lingual mix.

      Submitted as "Kamara S_c_leraina", this form uses both _k_ and
      _c_ to represent the same sound. If this name is registered, we
      will change the byname to "S_k_leraina" in order to use a
      consistent transliteration throughout the name. _Camara
      Scleraina_ would also be registerable.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Sassanian Byzantine
      era". The Sassanian dynasty fell in the 7th century, but the
      given name is found in the 11th century and the byname is found
      in the 10th-11th centuries. Therefore, this name does not meet
      the submitter's request for an authentic Sassanian name.

      Lastly, although _Kamara_ is the name of an accused witch or
      heretic in Lastivertsi's _History_, she appears to be a normal
      human rather than a legendary or mythological figure; therefore,
      the use of this given name does not make a presumptuous claim of
      powers.

      Her device is registered under the holding name "Kamara of
      Stegby".

      This was item 14 on the Lochac letter of February 29, 2016.

**** MIDDLE pends ****

  Trevor Synklar. Name.

      At the end of the commentary period, it was noted that the
      submitter's surname, _St. Clair_, can be pronounced "Sinclair"
      in certain English dialects. Therefore, the submitted name may
      be identical in sound to the submitter's use name. The Admin
      Handbook states:

           No name will be registered to a submitter if it is
           identical to a name used by the submitter for purposes
           of identification outside of a Society context. This
           includes legal names, common use names, trademarks,
           and other items registered with mundane authorities
           that serve to identify an individual or group. This
           restriction applies to Society branches as well as
           individuals. Thus, a branch cannot use the name of a
           significant location (a town or county, for example)
           within its borders. This restriction is intended to
           help preserve a distinction between a submitter's
           identity within the Society and the submitter's
           identity outside of the Society.

           A small change in the name is sufficient for
           registration, such as the addition of a syllable or a
           spelling change that changes the pronunciation.
           However, a change to spelling without a change in
           pronunciation is not sufficient. For example, _Alan
           Miller_ could not register the name _Alan Miller_ or
           _Allan Miller_ but he could register the name _Alan
           the Miller_. Further, submitters may register either a
           name or armory which is a close variant of a name or
           insignia they use outside the Society, but not both.

      We are pending this name to allow discussion of whether this
      name is identical in sound to one of the submitter's use names.

      We are also pending this name because the form of the given name
      on the Letter of Intent, "Trev_o_r" did not match the documented
      form, "Trev_a_r". If the submitter prefers to use the legal name
      allowance, documentation must be provided.

      This was item 6 on the Middle letter of February 29, 2016.

**** OUTLANDS pends ****

  Christopher Devereux. Transfer of Badge to Jeanne de Robin. Argent,
  two dances gules.

      Since the acceptance of this transfer by Jeanne de Robin appears
      on the Eastern letter of March 3, 2016, this action must be
      pended until that acceptance can be appropriately processed.

      This was item 8 on the Outlands letter of February 29, 2016.

scheduled because the administrative requirements (receipt of the forms packet,
receipt of the necessary fees, et cetera) have not yet been met._

scheduled.

**** From Laurel: Habemus Pelicanum! ****

I have received word from the Board that they have concurred and appointed
Mistress Alys Mackyntoich as the next Pelican Queen of Arms, succeeding Dame
Lillia de Vaux. Alys and Lillia will transition over the course of the August,
September, and October submissions cycles, with Alys taking over as of the
November meetings. The exact details of the transition will be worked out
between them and released under separate cover. Please join me in
congratulating Alys and thanking Lillia.

**** From Pelican: Estonian Alternate Titles ****

This month, we were asked to consider a proposal to remove some Estonian
alternate titles and to add others. We thank ffride wlffsdotter for her
research.

ffride provided information that the Estonian language was spoken by peasants,
but was recorded in German. It is more likely that the nobility in Estonia
would have used Low German. Therefore, for the purposes of recreation, the use
of German for an Estonian persona may be a better option.

T{o:}ll{o:}{o:} argued in commentary that the modern standardized forms of the
titles should be used, rather than the period forms, as they would be more
understandable and less jarring to native Estonian speakers in the Society.
However, in recent years, the Society has been replacing modern titles with
period forms whenever possible in the official list of alternate titles.
Therefore, we will continue to do so, as it allows for better recreation,
although we note that the Society structure of awards does not perfectly "map"
to how the real-world titles were used in our period. Members of the Society
can continue to use the modern forms if they prefer.

We have provided the normalized forms for informational purposes if they differ
from the form already on the alternate titles list.

The following changes are made:

    * _Duke_ - _Hertsog_ is replaced with _Erzog_.


    * _Duchess_ - _Hertsoginna_ is replaced with _Erzogi Prawwa_. (The
      normalized form is _Hertsogi proua_.)


    * _King_ - in addition to _Kuningas_, the spellings _Kunningas_ and
      _Kunninkas_ are added. (The normalized form is _Kuningas_.)


    * _Queen_ - _Kuninganna_ is replaced with _Kunninga Prawwa_ (The normalized
      form is _Kuninga proua_.)


    * _Prince_ - _Prints_ is replaced with _F{o:}rst_ and _W{u:}rst_. (The
      normalized form is _V{u:}rst_ or _P{a:}riv{u:}rst_, where the latter is
      appropriate for the heir of a kingdom.)


    * _Princess_ - _Printsess_ is replaced with _W{u:}rsti Prawwa_. (The
      normalized forms are _V{u:}rsti proua_, _V{u:}rstinna_, and
      _P{a:}riv{u:}rstinna_.)


    * _Master_ - _Meister_ is replaced with _Issand_. (The normalized form is
      _Isand_. We note that _Meister_ is also a gender-neutral modern form.)


    * _Mistress_ - _Naismeister_ is replaced with _Emmand_. (The normalized
      form is _Emand_. We note that _Meister_ is also a gender-neutral modern
      form.)


    * _Knight_ - _R{u:}{u:}tel_ is replaced with _Rutl_.


    * _Lord_ - _Lord_ is replaced with _Issand_. (The normalized form is
      _Isand_.)


    * _Lady_ - _Leedi_ is replaced with _Prawwa_. (The normalized form is
      _Proua_.)
