***** THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN REGISTERED: *****

**** {AE}THELMEARC acceptances ****

  {AE}thelmearc, Kingdom of. Order name Award of the Golden
  Escarbuncle and badge. (Fieldless) On a goutte d'huile an
  escarbuncle Or.

      The term _Escarbuncle_, referring to the heraldic charge, is
      dated to 1610 in the Oxford English Dictionary.

  {AE}thelmearc, Kingdom of. Badge for Award of the Golden
  Escarbuncle. (Fieldless) On a goutte de poix an escarbuncle Or.

  {AE}thelmearc, Kingdom of. Badge for Award of the Golden
  Escarbuncle. (Fieldless) On a goutte de sang an escarbuncle Or.

  Alexia Cavalieri. Name.

      Nice name for 16th century Rome. By precedent, the byname
      _Cavalieri_ is not presumptuous, as it is not a direct claim to
      be a knight. [Vittoria Cavalieri, 9/2012 LoAR, A-Atlantia].

  Artemisia da Manarola. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      The spelling _Manarola_ was not dated in the Letter of Intent.
      However, during the Pelican meeting, Siren found this spelling
      of the place name in a Latin context in _De admirandis vini
      virtutibus libri tres_, published in 1627
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=pqZAAQAAMAAJ).

  Cacht ingen Ui Cheithernaig. Name and device. Argent, a lion vert, a
  chief dovetailed purpure.

      Nice 11th century Gaelic name!

  Cecilie Vogelgesangkin. Name change from Kirsten Meise.

      Nice late 15th century German name.

      The submitter's old name, _Kirsten Meise_, is released.

  Donnchadh Ruadh mac Griogair. Name and device. Azure, on a bend
  gules fimbriated Or a shepherd's crook argent.

      Submitted as "Donnchaidh Rua_i_dh mac G_h_riogair", the name was
      changed to use the grammatically correct forms of the bynames.
      "Rua_i_dh" is the genitive form, which cannot be used after a
      given name. It has been changed to the correct _Ruadh_, which is
      the nominative form. _Griogair_ is both the nominative and
      genitive form of the name. As names beginning in G- do not
      lenite after _mac_, we have changed the patronymic to the
      correct _mac Griogair_.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 15th to 17th century
      Highland Scotland. The name is authentic for Gaelic-speaking
      Scotland in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, and
      possibly for earlier as well and thus meets the submitter's
      request.

      Please advise the submitter to draw a slightly thicker
      fimbriation.

  Helena Mutzhasen. Name change from Helene al-Zarqa'.

      Submitted as "Helena M{u:}tzhasenin", the byname was not
      properly constructed; in addition, the ulmaut over the 'u' was
      not supported by documentation. With the submitter's permission,
      the byname has been changed for registration to the
      grammatically correct _Mutzhasen_. As we were not able to find
      support for any spelling using an umlaut, the umlaut has been
      omitted.

      The submitter's previous name, _Helene al-Zarqa'_, is retained
      as an alternate name.

  Ixac ben Simone. Device. Or, on a pile gules a lion's head
  jessant-de-lys argent, a bordure checky gules and Or.

  Melodia Beaupel. Badge. (Fieldless) An organ pipe argent.

      An organ pipe is a period charge and can be seen in the Insignia
      Anglica, from the mid-16th century, in the arms of Williams.

  R{a'}{dh}{u'}lfr Gyl{dh}ir. Name and device. Per pale argent and
  sable, two wolf's heads cabossed and a Tir rune two and one
  counterchanged, a bordure gules.

  Shait ben Mikha'el. Household name House of the Flying Buffalos.

      None of the real-world businesses with _Flying Buffalo_ in the
      name are important enough to protect.

      This name was pended from the June 2016 Letter of Acceptances
      and Returns.

  Wilhelm Isenhart. Name and device. Bendy gules and Or, a
  seven-headed hydra statant sable and on a chief argent three
  double-horned anvils sable.

      Thanks to Liber, both elements are found in 1560 in the same
      region of Germany, making this an excellent 16th century German
      name!

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

**** AN TIR acceptances ****

  Aibhilin inghean Roibhilin. Name.

      Nice early 16th century Gaelic name!

  Ann{a'}bla Martyn. Name and device. Quarterly counter-ermine and
  vert, in bend sinister two crosses of Calatrava argent.

      This name combines a Gaelic given name with a Scots surname.
      This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

      The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of
      William of Hawkmore: _Per bend embattled gules and sable, two
      crosses patonce argent_.

  Betha of Dawlish. Name.

      _Dawlish_ initially was documented as the lingua Anglica form of
      the period spelling _Dawlisshe_. However, the submitter does not
      need to rely on the lingua Anglica allowance, as Ogress
      documented the spelling _Dawlish_ to 1465 in Maskelyne and H. C.
      Maxwell Lyte, _Inquisitions Post Mortem, Henry VII, Entries
      851-900', in Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem: Series 2,
      Volume 1, Henry VII_ (London, 1898), pp. 364-387.
      (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/inquis-post-mortem/series2-vol1/pp364-387).

  Brendan Ard mac Roibhilin. Name and device. Quarterly Or and vert, a
  willow tree eradicated counterchanged.

      The given name was originally documented as English, but Rocket
      found evidence of the same spelling as a saint's name in early
      Irish Gaelic, making this a wholly Gaelic name.

  Brigid inghean {E'}amoinn. Name.

      The given name was originally documented as English, but also
      appears as a saint's name in early Irish Gaelic.

      This name does not conflict with the registered _Brighid inghean
      Ioainn_ under PN3C1 of SENA. The two syllables of _{E'}amoinn_
      are substantially different in sound and appearance from the two
      syllables of _Ioainn_.

  Cornille le Corbeau. Name and device. Argent, a triple-headed
  thistle proper and on a chief dovetailed gules a sunflower proper.

  Cuil{e'}n Albriktsson. Name.

      Submitted as "Albriktson", the byname has been changed to
      "Albrikt_s_son" to use the correct Old Norse grammar.

      This name combines a Gaelic given name and an Old Norse byname.
      This is an acceptable lingual mix when both elements are dated
      before 1100, per Appendix C.

  Davide di Francesco Dominici. Badge. (Fieldless) Two shepherd's
  crooks in saltire within and conjoined to an annulet Or.

  Diana de Winterton. Device. Lozengy ermine and sable, on a chief
  sable a bar fleury-counter-fleury argent.

  Ellisif Leifsd{o'}ttir. Device. Per bend sinister azure and purpure,
  a bend sinister between two quatrefoil knots Or.

  Helvi av Gotland. Device. Azure, in pale a garb and an ass rampant
  Or.

  Hrolfr Kveldulfsson. Name and device. Per bend sinister azure and
  Or, in canton a roundel argent.

  Iona Myst Reginasdaughter. Name.

      The byname _Reginasdaughter_ is constructed from the English
      given name _Regina_ based on the pattern set forth in Appendix
      A.

      This byname is not presumptuous. Longstanding precedent "allows
      the claim to be related to a kind of person with rank (when that
      claim does not imply a rank on the part of the submitter)."
      [Katherine de Staverton. Alternate name Judith bas Rabbi Mendel,
      Feb. 2011, A-East]. "Merely being related to someone of a
      certain rank does not necessarily mean that the name is
      presumptuous." [Anna jarlam{o'}{dh}ir, Oct. 2014 LoAR,
      A-Calontir]. On this basis, we have registered names such as
      _jarlam{o'}{dh}ir_ ("mother of earls") and _Fitzroy_ ("son of
      the king"). [Mark Fitzroy, June 1994 LoAR, p.8]. The byname
      _Reginasdaughter_ is comparable. Even if read as meaning
      "daughter of a queen" rather than "daughter of a woman named
      Regina," this byname is not a claim to rank by the submitter,
      and thus is registerable under these precedents.

  Iuliana de la Sara and Nicolai Raben von Tachov. Joint badge for
  House of the Iron Ring. Per pale vert and sable, a Catherine wheel
  and an orle Or.

  Juana la Christiana. Name and device. Vert, a badger's head cabossed
  argent marked sable and on a chief Or three crosses couped gules.

  Levi ben Lowelin. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Melissa of Dalmatia. Name and badge. (Fieldless) On a triskele sable
  a bee Or.

      _Dalmatia_ is the lingua Anglica form of a place that was a
      province of the Roman Empire and a military district of the
      Byzantine empire.

  Olin Wlfredson. Device. Sable, issuant from sinister chief a
  schnecke maintaining on the outer swirl three schneckes Or.

      This device does not conflict with the device of Volmar von
      K{o:}then: _ Per pale argent and azure, a schnecke issuant from
      sinister chief Or_. There is a DC for changing the field and
      another DC for the maintained "schnecklets".

  Raven Morganstern. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and
  gules, a fox courant sable between in bend two lotus blossoms in
  profile counterchanged sable and argent.

      Raven is the submitter's legal given name, properly attested by
      two heralds. However, the submitter does not need to rely on the
      legal name allowance because ffride wlffsdotter provided
      documentation for Raven as a gray-period German name.

  S{a'}erlaith Fhinn. Name and device. Per fess embattled Or and
  azure, a triangle and a roundel counterchanged.

      The given name was submitted as _Sa*{e'}*rlaith_. It has been
      changed to _S*{a'}*erlaith_ to match the documentation.

      Nice 10th century Gaelic name!

  Tati Sigurdsson. Name and device. Per pale vert and sable, a bear's
  head erased and in chief three Thor's hammers argent all within an
  orle ermine.

      The spelling _Sigurdsson_ was not documented in the Letter of
      Intent. However, Siren found the genitive form _Sigurds_ dated
      to 1346 and later in Lind s.n. Sigur{dh}r. This documentation
      allows us to register the requested spelling _Sigurdsson_.

  Vashti of Wyewood. Name and device. Argent, in pall inverted three
  rabbits courant conjoined by the ears azure, in chief a dog courant
  sable.

      _Vashti_ was documented as a name from the Geneva Bible, an
      English-language Bible published in 1560. PN1C2d of SENA permits
      the use of names borrowed from the Bible in cultures where there
      is "a pattern of using name phrases from that type of source."
      There is a pattern of using Biblical names in late period
      English. _Curiosities of Puritan Nomenclature_ by Charles
      Bardsley, p. 39, notes a "rage for Bible names" in English
      dating from 1560-1570 through the end of period, and gives
      multiple examples of such names in Chapter 1. _Vashti_ therefore
      is registerable as a late-period English literary name.

      _Wyewood_ is the name of an SCA branch.

  Yeintil eshes Levi. Name.

      The submitter indicated that _eshes_ was Hebrew for "wife of."
      However, the pattern of [given name] + _eshes_ + [husband's
      name] is not found in Appendix A, and thus required
      documentation. Siren documented the pattern of using the
      Sephardic _eshes_ or the Ashkenazi _eshet_ in names in Juetta
      Copin's "Names from Hebrew Chronicles of the 10th to 13th
      Centuries."
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/crusades.html) with two
      examples from Germany in 1096. A third example is found in
      Juetta Copin's "Jewish Women's Names in 13th to 15th Century
      Navarre."
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/nav_intro.html). Based
      on this information, the name is registerable.

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

**** ANSTEORRA acceptances ****

  Cian ap Reys. Device. Per chevron vert and purpure, a chevron argent
  between three sparrows volant Or.

  Diarmuid mac Brain. Name.

      Nice 9th century Gaelic name! This name is clear of _D{i'}armaid
      {O'} Br{i'}ain_ under PN3C2 for two reasons: (1) _Brain_ has one
      less syllable than _Br{i'}ain_; and (2) _{O'}_ is substantially
      different in sound and appearance from _mac_. Either of these
      differences alone would make the two names clear of each other.

  Iago Cabrera de Cadiz. Name change from Iago al Hasan and device.
  Sable, a mash rake Or.

      The submitter's old name, _Iago al Hasan_, is released.

      This device does not conflict with the badge of Eirikr inn
      kengr: _(Fieldless) A trident Or_. There is a DC for fielded vs
      fieldless design, and another DC for the difference between a
      trident and a mash rake.

  Katerine la rousse d'Anjou. Badge. (Fieldless) A domestic cat
  salient argent conjoined at its back to a grenade bendwise inverted
  proper.

  Mabre Gardiner. Badge. (Fieldless) A crescent inverted surmounted by
  an arrow fracted in chevron inverted argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the arrow larger.

  Nicholas Wolf. Name.

      The submitter requested that his name be authentic for 15th
      century England. This name meets that request.

  Ryan Savage. Device. Per pale sable and gules, a skull and in base a
  quill pen and a smoking pipe in saltire argent.

  Ryska Belogorskaia. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Russian - meaning
      lynx." The given name does mean "lynx" as requested. However,
      the name may be Czech or Polish in origin rather than Russian.
      Given our limited resources in Russian and related Slavic
      languages, we cannot say if this combination of given name and
      byname is an authentic Russian name.

  Yzabeau Brossier. Device. Chevronelly argent and vert, a fox rampant
  proper maintaining a threaded needle Or.

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

**** ARTEMISIA acceptances ****

  Andre Void. Name.

  Helena Volos. Name.

  Ignat Ladogin. Name and device. Or, a bull-headed bull-hoofed man
  statant affronty head to dexter sable vested of a kilt sable marked
  Or maintaining an axe, on a chief raguly sable three axes Or.

      Submitted as "I_gan_t Ladogin", the spelling _Igant_ is a typo
      in the second edition of Wickenden (this typo does not appear in
      the third edition). The name should be _Ignat_ or _Ignatii_. The
      submitter was offered both of these options, and chose "Ignat".

  Ursula de Strattone. Device change. Argent, a brown bear passant
  proper and on a chief embattled vert three ramson flowers affronty
  argent seeded Or.

      The submitter's old device, "Per fess wavy vert and Or, two
      ramson flowers affronty argent seeded Or and a brown bear
      passant proper", is released.

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

**** ATENVELDT acceptances ****

  Andromeda Lykaina. Name change from Umm Ma'bad Amirah al-Zahra' bint
  'Abd al-Aziz al-Azhar ibn Malik ibn Mansur.

      The submitter's old name, _Umm Ma'bad Amirah al-Zahra' bint 'Abd
      al-Aziz al-Azhar ibn Malik ibn Mansur_, is retained as an
      alternate name.

  Collin de Lacy. Name and device. Sable, on a cross Or two spears in
  cross, the fesswise spear reversed sable, in canton a Lacy knot Or.

      The given name was presented as the submitter's legal given
      name. However, the legal given name was not properly attested,
      as only a single herald attested to the document and no copy of
      the document was provided. Fortunately, the given name _Collin_
      can easily be documented in both French and English, making this
      name registerable.

      Attestations as to the contents of legal documents such as
      driver's licenses must be made by two heralds. If a second
      herald is not available at an event, then another SCA officer,
      such as a seneschal, may make the attestation in place of the
      second herald.

  Sely Bloxam. Device change. Argent, a bend wavy azure between a
  gillyflower purpure slipped and leaved vert and a human footprint
  sable.

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

      The submitter's old device, "Per bend Or and argent, a
      gillyflower purpure slipped and leaved vert and a human
      footprint sable", is released.

  Stefan J{a:}ger von Ansbach. Badge. Paly bendy sinister argent and
  azure, an edelweiss blossom Or and an orle vert.

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

**** ATLANTIA acceptances ****

  Adair of Makyswell. Name.

  Ailis inghean Ui Riagain. Name.

      This name appeared on the Letter of Intent as "Ailis
      _O'_Riagain". A timely correction changed the name to the
      grammatically correct "Ailis _inghean Ui_ Riagain". It is
      registerable in that form.

  Altun bin Mustafa. Name.

      Submitted as "Altun bin Mustaf_f_a", the spelling _Mustaf*f*a_
      is from a period English translation of a period Italian
      description of a Turkish person. We have changed the name to
      _Mustafa_, the usual direct transliteration of this Turkish
      name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for Ottoman Turkish.
      However, _Altun_ was documented as a Mongolian name. While
      Mongol and Turkish elements can be combined under Appendix C, we
      have no evidence of the given name _Altun_ being used in an
      Ottoman context. Thus, the name is not authentic, but it is
      registerable.

  Atreus Lupus of Brittonwald. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 14th century English.
      Commenters were unable to find documentation to support this
      request. However, the name is registerable.

  Aurellia Silvana. Device. Sable, on a stag's head erased affronty
  winged at the shoulder argent a rose azure, a bordure argent goutty
  de sang.

  Dominyk Wolferam. Name and device. Gules, on a chevron between three
  wolves rampant Or three seebl{a:}tter palewise gules.

      Nice 14th century German name!

  Dreux d'Anjou. Household name Company of the Clewe.

  Ella de la Mare. Name.

      Nice 12th century English name!

  Francisco Cabral. Name.

      Excellent late period Portuguese name, with this exact name
      dated to 1573 in FamilySearch Historical Records!

  Geneviefve d'Estelle. Badge. Per fess azure and vert, in fess a
  decrescent, a quatrefoil and an increscent argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the quatrefoil with shorter
      arms.

  Geoffrey Hart. Badge. Paly Or and vert, a bend counterchanged.

  Gracia Slay. Device. Per bend azure and argent, a rainbow proper and
  a pegasus segreant azure.

  Greylond Crow. Device. Argent, a crow displayed sable, on a chief
  gules in pale two rapiers fesswise Or.

      There is a step from period practice for use of bird other than
      an eagle in the displayed posture.

  Hannah of Kingswood. Name change from Hannah of Kingeswood.

      The submitter's old name, _Hannah of Kingeswood_, is released.

  Helena de Berkeley. Device. Per chevron vert crusilly couped and
  argent, a chevron counterchanged argent and vert and in base a
  trefoil knot vert.

  Ibrahim bin Ilyas bin Mustafa al-Haddad. Badge. Per pale gules and
  Or, a tulip slipped and leaved counterchanged.

  Jarec Uglik. Name and device. Sable, an eagle and in chief two
  crosses swallowtailed argent.

      As submitted, this name was documented as the combination of a
      given name dated to 1261 in Czech and an "Old Belarusian" byname
      dated to 1584. However, because these two languages are not part
      of the same language group under Appendix C, there can be no
      more than 300 years between the elements.

      Commenters found evidence of _Jarek_ in Polish dated to the 14th
      and 15th centuries, well within the 300 year time limit. Polish
      and East Slavic can be combined under Appendix C.

      In addition, ffride provided evidence of -c and -k being used
      interchangeably when Polish names were recorded in Latin, with
      the most relevant example being the same person recorded as both
      _Marek_ and _Marec_ in _S{l/}ownik staropolskich nazw
      osobowych_, volume 3, s.n. Marek. Thus, the requested spelling
      _Jarec_ can be registered with this byname.

  Magdelena Cabral. Name.

      Nice 16th century Portuguese name!

  Marguerite de Vienne. Device. Purpure semy-de-lys, a peacock in its
  pride and a bordure Or.

  Marie Marschalc. Name and device. Vert, a cross of Jerusalem nowy
  quadrate and a base argent.

      The submitted spelling of the byname is an undated header form
      found in Brian Scott, "Some Early Middle High German Bynames
      with Emphasis on Names from the Bavarian Dialect Area"
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Early_German_Bynames.html).
      Precedent states that "[h]eader forms from this article are
      either normalized Middle High German or dated forms; as such,
      all are period and registerable" [Isabel of Oxeneford, A-An Tir,
      August 2013 LoAR].

  Oriana of Xylina. Device change. Gules, a blonde mermaid proper
  crowned with a pearled coronet Or maintaining a wooden casket proper
  and a mirror argent, a chief wavy Or fretty sable.

      The use of a low contrast maintained wooden casket on a gules
      field is grandfathered to the submitter.

      The submitter's old device, "Gules, a blonde mermaid proper
      crowned with a pearled coronet Or maintaining a wooden casket
      proper and a mirror sable glassed argent, a chief wavy Or fretty
      sable", is retained as a badge.

  Philomene de Lys. Name.

      Submitted as "Philom_{'e}_ne de Lys", the byname was changed at
      Kingdom to "_du_ Lys" match the documentation that could be
      found. During the decision meeting, Lillia Pelican Emerita found
      the byname _de lys_ in Spanish in _Documentos relativos a la
      expedici{o'}n de don Pedro de Mendoza y acontecimientos
      ocurridos en Buenos Aires desde 1536 a 1541_
      (https://books.google.co.uk/books?ei=eD5QVN3EDvPbsASEkoK4AQ&hl=es&id=bXhoAAAAMAAJ&dq=lys+pedro++de+mendoza&q=lis).
      Spanish and French are an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix
      C. As a result, we were able to change the byname back to the
      requested _*de* Lys_.

      Unfortunately, we were not able to find any evidence of the use
      of a grave accent in the given name within period. We have
      removed the accent to register the name.

  Raven's Cove, Barony of. Badge for Order of the Golden Buckler. Or,
  three ravens rising in annulo conjoined at the feet sable.

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

  Sacred Stone, Barony of the. Badge for populace. (Fieldless) A vol
  per pale vert and argent.

  Seraphina Delfino. Release of badge. (Fieldless) A natural dolphin
  haurient per fess purpure and vert.

  Thorgrim V{a'}pnssmi{dh}r. Name.

  {U'}lfarr Hrafnsvartsson. Name.

  Una N{a'}tts{o'}l {A'}llad{o'}ttir. Name.

      Submitted as "Una {A'}l_l_ad{o'}ttir N{a'}tts{o'}l", the first
      byname was changed to _{A'}lad{o'}ttir_ to match the
      documentation that could be found. During commentary, ffride
      wlffsdotter was able to document the requested
      _{A'}llad{o'}ttir_, allowing us to restore the name to the
      original form.

      In addition, as originally submitted, the placement of the
      byname indicates that it refers to her father. However, the
      byname _N{a'}tts{o'}l_ was only ever used for women and thus
      must follow the given name. The submitter consented to this
      change, and thus we are registering the name as "Una
      N{a'}tts{o'}l {A'}llad{o'}ttir".

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

**** AVACAL acceptances ****

  Arwyn of Leicester. Alternate name Amira al-'Aliyya and badge. Or,
  three roundels in fess between two bars all between three chalices
  purpure.

      Questions were raised in commentary whether this name, which
      combines a given name meaning "princess" with a byname meaning
      "the high, the lofty, the sublime," was presumptuous. We
      conclude that it is not.

      Presumption is a claim to rank that one does not possess. Under
      PN4B1, "[g]iven names that are identical to titles and forms of
      address may be registered in contexts that make it clear that
      they are given names and not titles."

      Precedent states that, "Amira, like Regina, is an attested given
      name that is identical to a title. As such, it can be registered
      when the name as a whole cannot be understood to create a claim
      to rank." [Amira di Lupo, Nov. 2013 LoAR, A-An Tir].

      In this instance, the name as a whole cannot be understood to
      create a claim of rank. Siren and others familiar with period
      Arabic records advised that they were aware of no instances in
      which _al-`Aliyya_ was used as a title for a princess or woman
      of rank. Thus, a period person reading this name would not have
      understood it to refer to a high, lofty or sublime princess, but
      rather to a woman named Amira who has those qualities.

      Although we have in the past returned names using the given name
      _Amira_, including most recently on the December 2015 LoAR
      [Lyric of Cynagua, A-West (returning _Amira of Golden Rivers_
      and registering alternate name presented by submitter)], the
      names that were returned all used locative bynames, thereby
      implying rulership over land. The present name does not have
      that problem.

      Further, allowing registration of this name is consistent with
      prior precedent concerning the treatment of the Arabic name
      _Malik_, which is also an Arabic word for king. In August 1997,
      we registered the name _Malik `Abd al-Rahman_ with the following
      explanation:

           This was pended from the April 1997 LoAR for more
           information as to whether the name was presumptuous.
           While Malik (in the original Arabic) is a documented
           name, one of the transliterations of the Arabic word
           for king is transliterated in the same way. To answer
           this question, we quote al-Jamal:

                ". . .the grammar of Arabic would keep the
                name Malik `Abd al-Rahman from being
                considered a claim to being an `Abd
                al-Rahman who was a king. A "King `Abd
                al-Rahman" would be al-Malik `Abd al-Rahman;
                the king `Abd al-Rahman. The non赴se of the
                article here takes the name out of the realm
                of presumption. (Even addressing the king
                directly would use the article: not Ya malik
                ("oh, king"), but Ya al-Malik (the effective
                equivalent of "your Majesty"). Only when
                speaking of kings generally or impersonally
                would one drop the definite article.) All of
                the Arabic alternate titles work this way.
                For example, in the SCA I am not Shayk Da'ud
                or Mu'allim Da'ud. The proper usage is
                ash-Shayk Da'ud or al-Mu'allim Da'ud.
                Ansteorra's current king is not Sultan (or
                Malik) `Abd al-Mahdi, he is as-Sultan (or
                al-Malik) `Abd al-Mahdi.

           Having received assurance that the name is not
           presumptuous, we see no reason not to register it.

           [Aug. 1997 LoAR, A-Ansteorra].

      As in the case of Malik `Abd al-Rahman, our understanding of
      Arabic grammar suggests that a princess whose given name was
      _al-`Aliyya_ would not be known as _Amira al-`Aliyya_, but
      instead would have been called _al-Amira al-'Aliyya_.

      For all of these reasons, we find that this name is not
      presumptuous and should be registered.

  Diego Vald{e'}s. Device. Gules, in pale a skull and a scimitar

      retained as a badge.

  Gilchrist Blackhart. Name and device. Argent, a hart's head cabossed
  sable maintaining in its mouth a smoking pipe bowl to sinister
  gules.

      Submitted as "Gilchrist Black Hart", the submitter requested the
      form "Gilchrist Blackhart". The requested surname can be
      constructed based on inn signs that use the pattern [color] +
      [animal], as found in "English Sign Names" by Mari ingen Briain
      meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/). The
      examples in this article include single word names, such as
      Grayhorse and Whytehorse. Kingdom documented the use of the word
      _Black_ in period inn sign names; in commentary, Siren added
      documentation for _Hart_ in sign names. _Blackhart_ therefore is
      accepted as a constructed surname based on an inn sign, and we
      have made the submitter's requested change.

  Gilchrist Blackhart. Badge. (Fieldless) A hart's head cabossed sable
  maintaining in its mouth a smoking pipe bowl to sinister gules.

  Godric Sellers. Name and device. Argent, a chevron inverted sable

      _Sellers_ was properly attested as the legal surname of the

      allowance, as _Sellers_ is also a 16th century English surname
      found in FamilySearch Historical Records.

  Griffith von Bremen. Name.

      Although Welsh in origin, _Griffith_ was documented as a
      sixteenth century English given name and therefore is treated as
      English for the purposes of the lingual mix. Per the February
      2015 Cover Letter, a sixteenth century English given name can be
      combined with sixteenth century German byname. Therefore, this
      name is registerable.

  Hammash Mathan Mor. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Henrik Blackwing. Name.

      Submitted as "Henrik Black Wing", the submitter requested the
      surname _Blackwing_ if it could be documented. _Blackwing_ can
      be constructed as an English surname based on an inn sign.

      The pattern [color] + [object] is found in Margaret Makafee's
      "Comparison of Inn/Shop/House names found London 1473-1600 with
      those found in the ten shires surrounding London in 1636."
      (http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~grm/signs-1485-1636.html).
      The objects used in inn signs are usually heraldic charges, such
      as an anchor or a cross. "English Sign Names," by Mari ingen
      Briain meic Donnchada (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/)
      contains examples of inn sign names rendered as single words,
      such as Grayhorse and Whytehorse.

      A wing is a documented heraldic charge, found in the Pictorial
      Dictionary of Heraldry (http://mistholme.com/dictionary/wing/),
      that could easily be depicted on an inn sign. The spelling
      _wing_ is dated to 1598 in the Oxford English Dictionary s.v.
      wing. The spelling _black_ is dated to 1447 and later in the
      Middle English Dictionary s.v. bl{a-u}k.

      Based on this information, _Blackwing_ is a plausible
      constructed inn sign name, and we have changed the name to meet
      the submitter's request.

  James Ravel. Name.

      Nice 16th century English name.

  Jean Blackhart. Name.

      Submitted as "Jean Black Hart", the submitter requested the form
      "Jean Blackhart". The requested surname can be constructed based
      on inn signs that use the pattern [color] + [animal], as found
      in "English Sign Names" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada
      (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/). The examples in this
      article include single word names, such as Grayhorse and
      Whytehorse. Kingdom documented the use of the word _Black_ in
      period inn sign names; in commentary, Siren added documentation
      for _Hart_ in sign names. _Blackhart_ therefore is accepted as a
      constructed surname based on an inn sign, and we have made the
      submitter's requested change.

  J{o'}ra Haraldsd{o'}ttir. Name.

      This name does not conflict with the registered "Tora
      Haraldsdottir" (March 2004, Caid). Under PN3C3, changes to the
      initial consonant are enough to allow two single-syllable names
      to be clear of conflict. The same section states that, "[o]n a
      case by case basis, two-syllable names phrases may be eligible
      for this rule, such as Harry and Mary." For example, on the June
      2015, Pelican ruled that the two syllable names Gaelan and
      F{a'}el{a'}n did not conflict due to the change in the initial
      consonant. [Gaelen {O'} Gr{a'}daigh, June 2015 LoAR, A-Middle].

      Here, the change in the initial syllable from T- to J- is at
      least as substantial as the change of F- to G-. We therefore
      find this name to be clear of conflict.

  Mirabel Sellers. Name.

      Nice 16th century English name!

      The submitter indicated that, if her name had to be changed, the
      sound "Mira Sellers" was most important to her. _Mira_ is found
      as a given name in early 17th century Germany. The February 2015
      Cover Letter permits this given name to be combined with the
      16th century English Sellers. If the submitter prefers _Mira
      Sellers_, she should submit a request for reconsideration.

  Olaff greypr. Name.

  Orlando de Castilla. Reblazon of device. Azure, in pale a beehive Or
  atop a cubit arm issuant from sinister base argent, in chief three
  bees, a bordure Or.

      Registered in May of 1994 as "Azure, a cubit arm issuant from
      sinister base argent, sustaining atop its palm a beehive, in
      chief three bees, a bordure Or", the hand and beehive are
      co-primary charges.

  Reyue Nightwalker. Name.

      Submitted as "Reyue Nightwalker", the name was changed at
      Kingdom to "Reyue _Night Walker_" to match the documentation
      that could be found. At the Pelican meeting, Siren found the
      term _nyghtwalker_ dated to 1518 in the Oxford English
      Dictionary s.v. night-walker, with the meaning "[a] person who
      walks around at night, esp. with criminal intentions; a
      nocturnal thief or miscreant." Other dated spellings in that
      source include _nyghtwalkere_ (1422) and _Night-walker_ (1648).
      As the letters i and y were used interchangeably in Middle and
      Early Modern English, the 1518 spelling supports the requested
      _Nightwalker_. We have restored the name to its original form.

  Seraphina Bluebird. Name.

      _Seraphina_ is a hypothetical feminine form of the documented
      English male name _Seraphin_, based on the pattern of feminizing
      male names in 16th century English.

      Submitted as "Seraphina Blue Bird", the submitter requested the
      byname _Bluebird_ if it could be documented. _Bluebird_ is a
      plausible constructed byname based on an inn sign. Although the
      known examples of English inn signs refer to specific birds
      (such as an eagle, raven or swan), it is also possible for an
      inn sign to depict a generic bird. Both _blue_ and _bird_ are
      period spellings found in the Middle English Dictionary.

  J{o/}rgen Lennertson. Name change from Hro{dh}geirr Grimsson.

      Submitted as "J{o/}rgen Lenn_e_rtson", the byname _Lennertson_
      was documented in the Letter of Intent as a form of _Lennart_.
      However, copies from the books cited in the submitter's
      documentation were not included in the packet, and commenters
      were unable to find this form in other sources. Therefore, we
      could not verify that the submitted spelling is a
      non-normalized, period form.

      Attested forms include the Swedish "Lenn_a_rtson", documented in
      the Letter of Intent from internal commentary, and the early
      17th century Danish "Le_ne_rt_ss_en", found during commentary in
      the FamilySearch Historical Records. However, we can also
      justify the submitted spelling of the byname as a late period
      German surname formed from a patronym. _Lennert_ is a German
      given name found in the FamilySearch Historical Records, dated
      to 1585, and the suffix _-son_ is occasionally found in Germany
      at this time in the same source. Therefore, we can register the
      submitted form.

      This name combines a Danish given name and constructed German
      byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of

  Endewearde, Barony of. Branch name change from Endeweard, Barony of.

      The Old English _wearde_ is only found prior to 1200, but is
      unattested in Old English place names. _Ende_ was documented in
      the Letter of Intent as an Old English word, but all of the
      examples provided were as a Middle English deuterotheme (second
      element). Examples of "End" as a prototheme (first element)
      include _Thendmoore_ (1586) and _Endmoore_ (17th century), found
      in Watts, s.n. Endmoor, and _Endegat_ (1201) and _Endegate_
      (1208) found in Ekwall, s.n. Ingate. The Old English _-wearde_
      cannot be combined with the Middle English _Ende-_ in the same
      name phrase.

      However, we can construct the barony's preferred spelling
      entirely in Middle English. A place named _le Wearde_ is found
      in the 13th century ('Inquisitions Post Mortem, Edward I, File
      98', in Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem: Volume 3, Edward
      I;
      http://www.british-history.ac.uk/inquis-post-mortem/vol3/pp489-508).
      The family name _Ende_ (derived from the toponym _atte Ende_) is
      found in the late 14th century (An Essay Towards A Topographical
      History of the County of Norfolk;
      http://www.british-history.ac.uk/topographical-hist-norfolk/vol1/pp345-359).

  Ile du Dragon Dormant, Baronnie de l'. Order name Award of Dragons
  Scale.

      In commentary, Siren noted that _escama_ ("scale", as in scale
      mail) is used in a 15th century Spanish order name, named after
      its badge of a circle of scales.

  Jean Michel le Vaud. Name and device. Per saltire sable and gules, a
  wolf rampant argent and in chief a crescent Or.

  Leo MacCullan. Name and device. Sable, a lion's head erased and on a
  chief argent a mullet of four points in dexter sable.

      Submitted under the name "Leonora da Ferrara".

  M{ae}rhild {ae}t Anestige. Name and device. Lozengy sable and
  argent, three fig leaves in pall stems conjoined vert, a bordure Or.

      Submitted as "M{ae}rhild _of_ Anesti_g_", a timely correction to
      the Letter of Intent noted that the submitter preferred the
      byname "_{ae}t_ Anesti_ge_". We are happy to make this change.

  Nishi'o Kageme. Name and device. Or, three hexagons gules each
  charged with a daisy argent and in chief a increscent azure.

      Submitted as "Nishi'o Kag_e_me", the name inadvertently appeared
      in the Letter of Intent as "Kag_a_me". We have restored it to
      the submitted form.

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

  Ragnarr bl{a'}skegg. Name.

      Nice Old Icelandic name!

  Simon Talbot. Name and device. Azure, a chevron Or mullety azure
  betwen three talbots passant Or.

      The submitter requested authenticity for Elizabethan England.
      Both elements are found in London in 1582, so this name meets
      the submitter's request.

      Nice cant!

  Ulf Jagenteufel. Name and device. Gules, a bend per bend nebuly
  argent and sable between five open books Or.

      _Ulf_ is the submitter's legal given name.

  Ulfgeirr Ragnarsson. Badge. (Fieldless) Within and conjoined to the

      Nice device!

  Elvira Belladonna de la Rosa. Name.

      Submitted as "Elvira Belladonna _de la_ Rosa", the name was
      changed in kingdom to "Elvira Belladonna _della_ Rosa" in order
      to use an Italian form of the byname rather than a Spanish form.
      This change was not summarized in the Letter of Intent. In
      addition, changing the language from Spanish to Italian is a
      major change, which the submitter did not allow. Kingdom
      confirmed that the submitter preferred _de la Rosa_, so we have
      restored the name to the submitted form.

      _Belladonna_ is a reasonable interpolation of the attested
      Italian names such as _Bella Donna_, _Belladona_, and
      _Bonadonna_. _Bella Donna_ and _Bonadonna_ are found in Yehoshua
      ben Haim haYerushalmi's "Names of Jews in Rome In the 1550's".
      _Belladona_ is a Latinized form found in Maria Teresa Brolis,
      Giovanni Brembilla, and Micaela Corato, _La Matricola Femminile
      della Misericordia di Bergamo (1265-1339)_.

  J{o'}rhildr Hrafnkelsd{o'}ttir. Badge. (Fieldless) A boar's head
  erased within and conjoined to a mascle argent.

  J{o'}rhildr Hrafnkelsd{o'}ttir. Badge. Argent, a frauenadler sable,
  face and breast argent, in chief three mascles sable.

  Pippin Needle Fang. Name.

      Submitted as "Pippin Needl_ef_ang", the name was changed in
      kingdom to "Pippin Needle_ F_ang" to match the documentation
      that could be found. This change was not summarized in the
      Letter of Intent. As we could not find evidence to support
      _Needlefang_, we have not restored the byname to this form.

  Heilv{e'} Silfrah{a'}rr. Name and device. Vert, a badger rampant
  argent marked sable, an orle of two grapevines entwined argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw fewer loops and fewer and
      larger leaves so the vines are easier to identify.

  {I'}s{ae}lfr hildit{o,}nn Heilv{e'}sd{o'}ttir. Name change from
  Katerina Saunfayle.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "early-period
      Icelandic". This request was not summarized in the Letter of
      Intent. Luckily for the submitter, we had enough information to
      consider the request instead of pending the name for further
      commentary.

      The given name was constructed from Old West Norse elements
      rather than attested. The first byname, _hildit{o,}nn_, is
      documented for Iceland, whereas the mother's name _Heilv{e'}_ is
      only found in Sweden. Therefore, this name is not an authentic
      Icelandic name, but it is registerable.

      The submitter's previous name, _Katerina Saunfayle_, is retained
      as an alternate name.

  Jehanne of Okewaite. Name.

      _Okewaite_ is the registered name of an SCA branch.

  Kra{e'} Glas, Barony of. Order name Order of Apollo Delphinius.

      This name follows the pattern of the attested _Ordre Monsieur
      Saint Michel Archange_ "order of the lord Saint Michael
      Archangel", where the modifier is an integral part of the deity
      or saint's name.

  Kra{e'} Glas, Barony of. Order name Order of the Delphinus Dionysi
  and badge. (Fieldless) A dolphin hauriant argent conjoined in chief
  to a plate.

      Submitted as "Order of the D_o_lphin_ _ Dionys_ii_", we have
      changed the substantive element to "D_e_lphin_us_ Dionys_i_"
      with the barony's permission to use a wholly Latin form meaning
      "Dionysus' Dolphin".

  Kra{e'} Glas, Barony of. Order name Order of the Spurtle and badge.

  Marc Ottignon. Name.

  Vincent Hazard. Device. Per fess wavy Or and sable, a triskelion of
  legs and two buckets counterchanged.

  Wladimir Bialykrolikow Vodniczsky. Name.

      Submitted as "W_{l/}_adimir _Belo_krolik_ov_ Vodni_kovich_", the
      name was changed in kingdom with the submitter's permission to
      "W_l_adimir _Bialy_krolik_ow_ Vodni_czsky_" to use Polish forms
      rather than a combination of Russian and Polish.

      _Bialykrolikow_ is a reasonable constructed Polish byname
      meaning "white rabbit".

      We note that the submitted byname _Vodnikovich_ is a patronym
      formed from a descriptive term meaning "water bearer", not a
      given name. This element is not registerable without
      documentation to support this construction.

      Examples of a descriptive/occupational term followed by another
      (including adjectival forms ending in _-sky/-ski_) are
      occasionally found in Poland in the late 16th and early 17th
      centuries. Examples include _Woicziech/Woyciech Ciwon Rogal_
      (1578), _Wojciech Czajka Mi{l/}kowski_ (1569), and _Franc Losz
      Roski_ (1580), all found in Zofia Abramowicz, Lila Citko,
      Leonarda Dacewicz, _S{l/}ownik Historycznych Nazw Osobowych
      Bia{l/}ostocczyzny (XV-XVII w.)_. We note that this pattern is
      uncommon, so will not add it to Appendix A of SENA.

      byname was changed in kingdom to "ing_en_ _Ch_on _Ch_aille
      M{o'}ir" to match the documentation that could be found.

      The particle _ingean_ is a transitional form occasionally found
      in the 12th century, although _ingen_ is far more common. In
      addition, Rocket noted in commentary that the byname does not
      need to be lenited in this particular case. Therefore, we have
      restored the byname to the submitted form.

      Nice 12th century Irish Gaelic name!

  Fiora Valori. Badge. (Fieldless) A poodle rampant contourny argent
  vested of boots and charged on the shoulder with a gillyflower
  gules.

      Although the ancestor of the breed can be documented to period,
      the modern "poodle cut" is not and will not be registerable
      after the March 2017 decision meeting barring documentation.

  Fiora Valori. Badge. (Fieldless) On a boot bendwise sinister gules a

      Submitted as "Br_anwyn_ of Red Spears", the given name was
      changed to "Br_onwyn_" in kingdom to match the documentation
      that could be found. After the Pelican decision meeting, the
      submitter requested the form "Bran_gwyne_" instead. This form
      was documented in the Letter of Intent, and is dated to 1283 in
      R&W, s.n. Brangwin. We have changed the given name to the
      submitter's preferred form.

      _Red Spears_ is the registered name of an SCA branch.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a lightning
      bolt not as part of a thunderbolt.

  Muirenn ingen F{a'}elchon U{i'} Cl{e'}righ. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 7th-10th century
      Ireland. This name does not meet the submitter's request because
      the byname _U{i'} Cl{e'}righ_ is not found prior to the 10th
      century, and _F{a'}elchon_ could not be dated later than 785.

  Shadowed Stars, Barony of. Order name Award of Apis of Shadowed
  Stars.

  Shadowed Stars, Barony of. Order name Award of Djulkes Star.

      Submitted as "Award of _the Star of Djolka_", this order name
      was changed in kingdom to "Award of _Djulkes Star_" because
      _Djolka_ could not be documented in our period, and to follow
      the example of the English order name _Saint George's Shield_,
      using the lingua Anglica form of the Old Frisian _stera_ "star".
      _Djulkes_ is a reasonable genitive (possessive) form of the
      Frisian given name _Djulke_, based on patronyms in Aryanhwy
      merch Catmael's "15th Century Dutch Names"
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/dutch/dutch15surnames.html).

      Submitted as "Award _o_f _t_he Star _o_f Hroar", the name was
      changed in kingdom to "Award _O_f _Hroars Star_". The submitted
      form follows the pattern of _Societas nodi illustrus Ludovici
      Regis Sicili_ ("Society of the Knot of our illustrious Ludovicus
      (Loysi), king of Sicily") in Juliana de Luna's "Medieval Secular
      Order Names"
      (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/Courtly_Orders_and_Awards.shtml).
      We have restored the order name to the submitted form.

  Shadowed Stars, Barony of. Order name Award of Libra of Shadowed
  Stars.

  Shadowed Stars, Barony of. Order name Award of the Lyra of Shadowed

      Submitted as "Award of_ _Lyr_a_ of Shadowed Stars", the order
      name was changed in kingdom to "Award of _the_ Lyr_e_ of
      Shadowed Stars" to use the English form of _Lyre_ instead of the
      Latin _Lyra_. In commentary, Siren found _lyra_ as a Middle
      English synonym for "lyre". Therefore, we are able to partially
      restore this to the submitted form: "Award of _the_ Lyr_a_ of
      Shadowed Stars".

  Caitr{i'}ona inghean Criomthainn. Name.

      Submitted as "Caitr{i'}ona inghean Cr_i_mthainn", the name was
      changed by kingdom with the submitter's permission to
      "Caitr{i'}ona inghean Cr_io_mthainn" to make this an entirely
      post-1200 name. Although _Criomthainn_ would normally be lenited
      due to the rules of Gaelic grammar, period examples show that
      lenition is inconsistent in documentary forms. Therefore, we do
      not need to lenite the father's name in the patronymic byname.

      Nice late period Irish Gaelic name!

  Clydwyn Gwehydd. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Commenters noted that the given name and byname may not be
      temporally compatible, as _Clydwyn_ was found as a standardized
      form of the 5th or 6th century name (found as _Clytwyn_, among
      other spellings), and _Gwehydd_ was dated to the 13th century.
      However, as we offered the submitter the form _Clydwyn_ in the
      return of his name in the July 2014 Letter of Acceptances and
      Returns, we will allow its registration.

  Godefroy du Lyon. Name and device. Gules, a boar rampant and on a

      Both _Godefroy_ and _du Lyon_ are found in the 1292 Census of

  Tyok Liftfot. Alternate name Kwon Chae-woo (see RETURNS for badge).

      The submitter requested authenticity for a 16th century Korean
      name. All of the elements are dated to the 16th century, but we
      don't know if the construction is authentic. However, it is
      registerable.

      Submitted as "Kwon _J_ae-woo", this form uses more than one
      romanization style. Forms of this name that use one
      transliteration scheme include _Kwon Chae-woo_, _Kwon Chae'u_,
      _Gwon Jae-u_, or _Gwon Jae-woo_. The submitter preferred the
      form "Kwon _Ch_ae-woo", so we have changed the name to this
      form.

**** OUTLANDS acceptances ****

  Alexander ben Avram. Device change. Per bend azure and vert, a
  crampon fesswise between in pale two roundels argent.

      The submitter's old device, "Purpure, a schnecke issuant from
      sinister chief, in dexter chief a mullet of six points Or", is
      retained as a badge.

  Alexander ben Avram. Alternate name Tharain map Achivir.

      This name was documented using Tangwystyl verch Morgant
      Glasvryn's "A Consideration of Pictish Names". Commenters noted
      that the Pictish particle _map_ is largely conjectural, with one
      possible example, _Tolarggan Maphan_, found in an 8th century
      entry in the Annals of Ulster. Patronyms in Pictish names are
      generally found instead in Irish and Latin records rendered as
      _mac(c)_ and _filius_, respectively. However, we will continue
      to give the benefit of the doubt that _map_ is plausible as a
      Pictish form and can register this name. If the submitter
      prefers to use one of these documentary forms, he can submit a
      request for reconsideration.

      _Tharain_ may be a genitive form of _Taran_, given that the form
      _Tarain_ is noted to be a possible genitive (possessive) form.
      However, as _Tharain_ is not identified as a genitive form, we
      can give the submitter the benefit of the doubt that it is a
      nominative (base) form.

  Aria da Firenze. Name.

      Submitted as "Aria _of_ Firenze", _Florence_ is the lingua
      Anglica form of the Italian _Firenze_. The submitter approved a
      change to "Aria _da_ Firenze" to make her name wholly Italian.
      Therefore, we have made this change to register this name.

  Avram syn Osvetoslavl'. Name change from Avram Ibn Gabirol.

      The submitter's previous name, _Avram Ibn Gabirol_, is retained
      as an alternate name.

  Christopher Brockwell. Name.

      The submitter may wish to know that this exact name was found in
      England in the FamilySearch Historical Records, dated to 1634.

  Felix Wulff. Name.

  Jocelyn de Honicombe. Device. Or, three roses gules each charged
  with a bee proper.

  Lucrezia de Carducci. Name.

      Nice 16th century Tuscan name!

  Michaela de Montgomery. Name and device. Barry wavy purpure and Or,
  an escallop gules.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "13th c. France".
      Although both elements are dated to the 13th century, the given
      name is an Occitan form from southern France and the byname is
      an English or Anglo-Norman form derived from a place name in
      northern France. Alternatively, the submitted form _de
      Montgomery_ is found in 16th century Rouen in Aryanhwy merch
      Catmael's draft article "Bynames in Medieval France"
      (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/frenchbynames.pdf).
      Due to the lingual mix of Occitan and English/Anglo-Norman, or
      Occitan and French, this name does not meet the submitter's
      request for an authentic 13th century French name, but it is
      registerable.

      Although this badge conflicts with Emma de Fetherstan's badge,
      _(Fieldless) An escallop gules_, Emma has granted blanket
      permission to conflict.

  Rita Perle von der Wetterau. Name change from holding name Rita of
  the Citadel of the Southern Pass.

      Submitted as "Rita Perle _V_on _D_er Wetterau", the name was
      changed to "Rita Perle _v_on _d_er Wetterau" to use the typical
      capitalization suggested in the submitter's original return of a
      similar name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "15th century German
      and Italian". Due to the combination of the 16th century Italian
      _Rita_, the 16th century German _Perle_, and the early 17th
      century German _von der Wetterau_, this name does not meet the
      submitter's request for a 15th century name. In addition, the
      lingual mix, although allowed under Appendix C of SENA, means
      that the name would not be authentic even if all of the elements
      could be documented for the submitter's preferred century.
      However, the name is registerable.

  Staros of Helicon. Device. Per pale sable and gules, two natural
  tigers combattant argent marked sable and a point pointed argent.

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

  Felicitas Flu{sz}m{u:}llnerin. Device change. Per pale gules and
  sable, a waterwheel counterchanged.

      This design was submitted as an Individually Attested Pattern in
      late period German armory. There was sufficient evidence of per
      pale gules and sable [a charge] counterchanged. However neither
      the submitter nor the commenters were able to provide evidence
      of a waterwheel used as charge in the same heraldic
      jurisdiction. SENA A4A specifically says "All elements in an
      Individually Attested Pattern must be found in that single time
      and place, including charges, arrangement of charge groups, and
      lines of division." Since the charge itself was not attested in
      the same context as the low contrast armory, we do not meet the

  Felicitas Flu{sz}m{u:}llnerin. Badge. Sable, in pale an eye Or
  irised sable and a candle, a bordure dovetailed Or.

      This badge is returned for redraw, for blurring the distinction
      between the primary and secondary charge groups. It is not clear
      whether we have two coprimary charges or if we have a primary
      candle and secondary eye as the candle crosses the per fess
      line.

  Jing Hao. Name.

      This name is returned for presumption on the significant Chinese
      landscape painter and essayist Jing Hao (also known as Ching Hao
      and Hongguzi) active c. 910-950 C.E. PN4D1 of SENA states:

           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.

      Jing Hao is both significant and well known in Chinese culture
      and art. Jing Hao established a particular style of Chinese
      landscape painting (the so called "monumental style"), a style
      that persisted through the reign of the last Chinese emperor in
      1911. The Metropolitan Museum of Art describes Jing Hao as one
      of the "founding fathers of the landscape tradition." The other
      two major innovators in this style were both Jing Hao's
      students.

      Jing Hao was one of the first Chinese artists to use ink washes
      in his work. He is also credited with inventing the _cun fa_
      style of ink and brushwork.

      Jing Hao is equally famous as a writer and theoretician of art.
      His writings on art include _Bifaji_ ("Notes on Brushwork"), an
      essay on landscape painting techniques that had significant
      influence on all of the major schools of Song Dynasty landscape
      painting and beyond.

      Although Jing Hao is not mentioned in the 1911 print
      Encyclopedia Britannica, that source does not adequately cover
      non-European figures. There is an article about Jing Hao in the
      on-line _Encyclopedia Britannica_
      (https://www.britannica.com/biography/Jing-Hao). He is also
      discussed in the on-line _Encyclopedia Britannica_'s article on
      Chinese painting
      (https://www.britannica.com/art/Chinese-painting/Five-Dynasties-907-960-and-Ten-Kingdoms-902-978#ref601906).
      He is discussed in major texts on Chinese and Asian art,
      including several non-specialist texts used in entry-level art
      history courses.

      Based on this information, we find that Jing Hao "significantly
      shaped the course of . . . the arts" in China for several
      centuries. He therefore is significant enough to protect from
      presumption.

  Magnus Tindal and {E'}t{a'}in ingen D{a'}laig. Joint badge. Argent,
  on a roundel invected vert, a gorgon's head cabossed argent.

      This badge is returned for using a roundel with a complex line.
      The March 2012 LoAR states: "Due to the potential confusion with
      other charges, roundels with complex lines will not be
      registered after the September 2012 decision meeting without
      evidence of period practice." [Drake MacGregor, East]. No

  Seamus Tuilide. Device change. Vert, a fess checky sable and argent
  between a mule courant contourny argent maintaining in its mouth a
  billhook proper and a torc Or.

      This device is returned for contrast issues. As depicted, the
      billhook, with the use of dark grey for the blade, is entirely
      color and has a low contrast with the vert field, which
      seriously impairs its identifiability. We require held charges
      to have sufficient contrast since August 2015. Although
      similarly blazoned as proper, this billhook is not similar to
      the one currently registered to the submitter which is thicker,
      with a different shape of blade, and a blade that is a much more
      clearly argent. Thus this submission cannot be registered under
      the grandfather clause.

      requirements. We require that charges which are "wreathed" to
      have good contrast between their parts. "A wreathed ordinary

      of Mistholme, LoAR September 1992, p. 43). The basis for the

**** LOCHAC returns ****

  Ka{dh}l{i'}n Myrk{a'}rfylja. Name.

      This name is returned because no evidence was provided to show
      that a byname like _Myrk{a'}rfylja_ is plausible in Old Norse.
      The examples cited in the Letter of Intent followed the pattern
      _[generic toponym] + foal_, but _Myrk{a'}_ was documented as a
      specific place name (a river and farm). A suggestion made in
      commentary, the constructed name _Myrkvifylja_ ("darkness
      foal"), also does not follow the attested pattern.

  Kra{e'} Glas, Barony of. Order name Order of the Dolphins Endorsed.

      There is no example of an arrangement of a charge group found in
      a period order name. The examples cited in the Letter of Intent,
      _grekr{o"}nten Steinbocken_ ["crowned ibex(es)"] and _Corona
      Doble_ ("double crown") describe the charges themselves, not
      their arrangement in a charge group. There is one example from
      inn sign names: _cross keys_. But by precedent, examples from
      inn sign names cannot be used to construct order names.
      Therefore, we are unable to register this order name without
      further evidence to support this pattern.

  Kra{e'} Glas, Barony of. Badge for populace. (Fieldless) A dolphin
  haurient azure breathing flames gules.

      This badge is returned for presumption upon the arms of Dauphin,
      Prince of France: _Or, a dolphin haurient azure finned gules_.
      There is a DC for the difference between fielded and fieldless
      design but no other DC. The flames here are not considered a
      held charge and, although blazonable, do not count for
      difference for conflict checking purposes.

  Marie la Luthiste. Name.

      This name is returned because no evidence was found to support
      the term _Luthiste_ prior to the 18th century.

      Upon resubmission, the submitter may wish to know that _la
      joueuse de luth_ has the intended meaning. The masculine form
      _ioueur_ (in the phrase "ioueur de l'harpe") is found in
      _Sermons, et concepts tirez de l'Escriture saincte_ by Gabriele
      Inchino and Suarez de Sainte-Marie
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=5Or7Ck9sqocC&pg=PA523).

      _Luth_ is dated to 1380 (_Le Tr{e'}sor de la Langue
      Fran{c,}aise_, s.v. luth). A 13th century Norman plural form,
      _joeresses_, is found in the same source, citing Wace's _Roman
      de Brut_. The corresponding singular form would be _joeresse_. A
      number of _-eur/-esse_ pairs are found in Colm Dubh's
      "Occupational By-Names in the 1292 Tax Role of Paris"
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/parisbynames.html), so _la
      jouresse de luth_ is also plausible.

      Upon resubmission, the submitter should know that the term
      _lutist_ ("lute-player" or "marker of lutes") is found in
      England in 1627, and the forms _lutenist_ and _lutanist_
      ("lute-player") are dated to c.1600 and a.1634, respectively
      (_Oxford English Dictionary_, s.v. lutist and lutanist).
      Therefore, _Marie the Lutist_, _Marie the Lutanist_, or _Marie
      the Lutenist_ would be registerable. As the given name is also
      found in England at that time, this name would be wholly English
      or a registerable combination of French and English.

  Nadezhda Wladimirowa Bialykrolikowa Vodnikovicha {.z}ona. Name.

      Submitted as "Nadezhda _W{l/}a_dimir_ zhena_ _Belo_krolik_ov_
      Vodniko_vich_", the name was changed in kingdom to "Nadezhda
      Wladimirowa _Bialy_krolik_owa_ Vodniko_vicha {.z}ona_" to
      feminize the elements and to use Polish forms where possible.

      The marital byname _Wladimirowa Bialykrolikowa Vodnikovicha
      {.z}ona_ combines Polish and Russian in the same name phrase.
      The combination of languages in a name phrase is not allowed
      under PN1B1 of SENA. Therefore, we must return this name.

      Although the submitter's husband's name, _Wladimir Bialykrolikow
      Vodniczsky_, appears elsewhere on this letter, we are unable to
      use the grandfather clause to register this name because the
      elements from his name had to be feminized. PN1B2e of SENA
      states, "Only the exact, actual name phrase from the registered
      form may be used, not variants, patterns, etc. The use of the
      grandfather clause does not allow the submitter to evade new
      style problems (as discussed in PN.2 below). It only allows the
      submitter to keep style problems that already exist with the
      registered name."

      We are also returning this name because _Vodnikovicha_ is a
      patronym formed from a descriptive term meaning "water bearer",
      not a given name. Without documentation to show that
      constructing a patronymic byname from a descriptive byname is a
      reasonable pattern in our period, we cannot register this
      element.

      _Bialykrolikowa_ is a feminized form of a constructed Polish
      byname meaning "white rabbit". This is a reasonable constructed
      byname.

      Upon resubmission, the submitter should know that this name was
      far more complex than the attested examples of marital bynames.
      Examples in Russian and Polish/Lithuanian use two elements from
      the husband's name, but not three, such as _[husband's given
      name (feminized with -owa)] + [husband's occupation or position
      (feminized)] + [wife's given name]_. A resubmission should
      include examples to support a more complex construction, or
      should drop an element to make it as simple as the attested
      forms.

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

**** MERIDIES returns ****

  Meridies, Kingdom of. Order name Order of Hekatonkheires.

      This order name is returned for lack of evidence that the Greek
      name for a group of mythological giants is the plausible basis
      of an order name. The only relevant example cited in the
      original submission was the _Order of the Argonauts of St.
      Nicholas_, cited in D'A.J.D. Boulton's _The Knights of the
      Crown: The Monarchical Order of Knighthood in Later Medieval
      Europe, 1325-1520_. However, this source states that evidence
      could not be found to support this name in our period, although
      a 1642 text noted that the order had that name previously. In
      addition, the Argonauts were humans.

      Additionally, no examples of order names in Greek were found.
      Those order names that we could find used a medieval European
      language or Latin, not Classical Greek.

      The only other examples that could be found for a group of
      people were the _Order of the Grail-Templars of Saint George_,
      named after a legendary group, and the _Geselscap von den
      Gecken_ ("Company of the Fools"). The latter is mostly likely
      named for the heraldic charge, as fools were known for their
      distinctive dress, rather than after the people, per se. Both of
      these examples are named after people or an occupation, not
      non-human mythological creatures. However, we allow references
      to mythological items like the _Golden Fleece_ and classical
      deities in languages from cultures that used orders, so a single
      one of these giants would be acceptable as the basis for an
      order name.

      The kingdom may wish to know that the Latin form of
      _Hekatonkheires_ is _Centimani_ ("Hundred-Handed Ones"). A
      singular Latin form or the specific name of an individual giant
      would be registerable.

      This name was pended from the June 2016 Letter of Acceptances
      and Returns.

  Clydwyn Gwehydd. Device. Argent, on a bend engrailed sable a sword
  argent.

      This device is returned for conflict. In the return of Caleb
      Hoggar, LoAR of Feb 2011, it was ruled:

           [Argent goutty de sang, a bend engrailed sable.] This
           device conflicts with the device of Kriemhilt von
           Ebersberg, Argent, a bend fusilly sable. Batonvert
           provided extensive evidence that a bend engrailed and
           a bend lozengy are interchangeable in period,
           therefore, this is a conflict with a single CD for the
           addition of the gouttes. [LoAR of Feb 2011]

      Therefore, this submission likewise conflicts with the device of
      Kriemhilt von Ebersberg: _Argent, a bend fusilly sable_. The
      complex lines were considered interchangeable and equivalent in
      period and thus we get only one DC, for adding the tertiary
      charge.

  Decimus Marius Tacitus. Household name Domus Lupi.

      This household name is returned for conflict with the registered
      heraldic title _Lupine Herald_. Precedent states:

           [Isabella Rose] This name conflicts with the
           registered _Isabella Rowe_. While normally the
           difference between Rowe and Rose would be sufficient
           under PN3C3, the rule states, "In rare cases, the
           sound may still be too similar for this rule to clear
           the conflict". The change to a terminal consonant
           group is exactly that kind of case; terminal
           consonants are often understressed in casual speech
           and easily confused with one another. Thus, this name
           cannot be registered without permission to conflict.
           [Isabella Rose, January 2015, R-Lochac]

      Similarly, the change from _Lupine_ to _Lupi_ only affects the
      terminal consonant. Although the two elements are different in
      appearance, they are not different enough in sound. Therefore,
      we are unable to register this household name. We note that
      because this item is a household name and the registered item is
      a heraldic title, this submission can be registered with a
      letter of permission to conflict under NPN3E of SENA.

  Tyok Liftfot. Badge. (Fieldless) An Oriental dragon's head cabossed
  azure.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the dragon's head,
      potentially mistaking it for a demon's head. It might be
      difficult to achieve recognizability without the rest of the
      dragon's body.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of an Oriental
      dragon's head.

  Yoshida Kiku. Device. Argent, in pale a chrysanthemum of eight
  petals gules seeded Or and a dragonfly vert.

      This device is returned for redraw, for blurring the distinction
      between the primary and secondary charge groups. It is not clear
      whether we have a primary flower and secondary dragonfly or two
      coprimary charges.

      Additionally, commenters often perceived the green dragonfly as
      slipping and leaving of the flower.

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

**** OUTLANDS returns ****

  Roger de Gilbert. Device. Per saltire sable and gules, a saltire and
  overall a rose argent.

      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 rose is on the saltire than on the field.

      Additionally, this device has a contrast issue as the rose and
      saltire are both argent. That absence of contrast impairs the
      identifiability of the charges.

      Note that the rose cannot be Or as it would conflict with
      Caitlin Davidson: _Per saltire vert and sable, a saltire argent,
      overall a rose Or_.

  Jon MacLeod of Stornway. Name.

      Submitted as "Jon MacLeod", this form has a relationship
      conflict with _Angus John Macleod_ (May 1995, Calontir) under
      PN3D of SENA. Because Scots uses unmarked patronymics, the name
      as submitted could be read as a claim to be the father of _Angus
      John Macleod_. After the close of commentary, the submitter
      agreed to add the locative byname _of Stornway_ in order to
      clear the conflict. The place name _Stornway_ is dated to 1606
      in Mercator's map of Scotland
      (http://biblio.unibe.ch/web-apps/maps/zoomify.php?pic=Ryh_1901_6.jpg&col=ryh).

  Areus of Sparta. Name change from Phelan {O'} Coile{a'}in.

      In commentary, Metron Ariston identified a possible presumption
      issue: one of the kings of Sparta was named Areus. SENA PN4D1
      sets out the standards for whether a historical person is
      important enough to protect from presumption. It states in
      relevant part:

           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).

      Sparta was a Greek city-state. It did not directly give rise to
      any modern country. Commenters are asked to discuss whether
      Sparta nevertheless is sufficiently significant to warrant
      protecting its kings from presumption. Alternatively, commenters
      should address whether Atreus of Sparta himself was historically
      significant such that he should be protected from presumption.

      This was item 2 on the Atenveldt letter of June 20, 2016.

**** CAID pends ****

  Naevehjem, Barony of. Order name Order of the Dragon's Hoard.

      In support of this order name, the Barony argued that the
      pattern "_Order of Dragon's_ [treasure]" was grandfathered to
      the submitter by virtue of the prior registration of the name
      _Order of the Dragon's Gem_ (Sept. 1994, Caid). We do not agree.
      A gem or gemstone is a heraldic charge. Thus, the registered
      order name fits the documented pattern of registering order
      names based on heraldic charges.

      Additionally, the Barony currently has registered to it the
      names _Order of the Dragon's Foot_ and _Order of the Dragon's
      Wing_, both of which support the grandfathered pattern as being
      "_Order of the Dragon's_ [heraldic charge]" rather than "_Order
      of the Dragon's_ [treasure]."

      However, neither the LoI nor commenters addressed the Barony's
      other registered order name, _Order of the Dragon's Blaze_.
      (Feb. 1994, Caid). We are pending this submission for further
      commentary on the question of whether this order name should
      support a broader pattern of "_Order of the Dragon's_ [thing],"
      where the thing is a noun that is not a heraldic charge.

      This was item 25 on the Caid letter of June 26, 2016.

**** EAST pends ****

  Leonora da Ferrara. Name.

      Following the Pelican decision meeting, the question was raised
      whether this name presumes upon that of Eleanor of Naples, also
      known as Leonora of Aragon, who was the first Duchess of
      Ferrara. Therefore, we are pending this name to allow a
      discussion on this issue.

      _Ferrara_ was documented in the Letter of Intent from
      _Florentine Renaissance Resources: Online Tratte of Office
      Holders 1282-1532_, which normalized the place names. The
      submitted spelling is also found in "Some Names From Giovanni
      Boccaccio's _Il Decameron_" by Giata Magdalena Alberti (2013
      KWHSS Proceedings).

      Her device is registered under the holding name "Leonora of
      {O/}stgar{dh}r".

      This was item 20 on the East letter of June 30, 2016.

**** From Pelican: Greetings ****

To the heralds of the Known World, greetings and every good thing. I am
Mistress Alys Mackyntoich, OP, OL, and I started my term as Pelican Queen of
Arms (or, in period Scots, Pellicane Quene of Armys) on November 1st. My thanks
to Andrewe Laurel, Lillia Pelican Emerita and Emma Temperaunce for all of their
help and guidance during the transition. I also extend grateful thanks to
Juliana Siren and Istvan Non Scripta for encouraging me down the path that led
here.

For those who don't know me, I reside in the East Kingdom, in the Barony of
Settmour Swamp (northern New Jersey), where I work as a litigation attorney. I
have been active in book heraldry for a little over ten years (longer for vocal
heraldry). I served as the East Kingdom's submission herald and heraldic
education deputy, as well as being on Pelican staff under Juliana and Lillia. I
generally attend KWHSS and Pennsic every year, but I am more than happy to
travel to other places to teach and promote heraldry. Generally, the best way
to reach me is by e-mail.

I look forward to working for the College, to meeting more people, and to
supporting the practices of heraldry and onomastics in the Society.
