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

**** AN TIR acceptances ****

  Aleksii Konstantinovich Chernoi. Device. Per saltire gules and
  sable, a bear rampant maintaining a spear argent within an orle of
  chain Or.

      The submitter is a knight and thus entitled to the display of an
      orle of chain.

  Alienor de Montserrat. Name and device. Sable, a lily within a four
  lobed quadrate cornice argent.

      Submitted as "Ali{e'}nor de Montserrat", no evidence was found
      to support the use of the accent in the given name in our
      period. Therefore, we have dropped the accent to register this
      name.

      The source cited for the place name _Montserrat_, actually had
      the spelling _Montferrat_; however, commenters found the
      submitted spelling as a French rendering of the Spanish place
      name In _Le voyage du Prince don Fernande Infant d'Espagne,
      Cardinal_, dated to 1635
      (https://books.google.ca/books?id=0ieJ3cz7rAcC&pg=PA15).

  Alienor de Montserrat. Badge. (Fieldless) A four lobed quadrate
  cornice argent.

      This badge does not conflict with the badge of Eilis ni Roibeard
      O'Boirne: _(Tinctureless) A quatrefoil knot_. There is a DC for
      tincturelessness and another DC for the difference between a
      four lobed quadrate cornice and a quatrefoil knot.

  Alienor de Montserrat. Badge. Or, a four lobed quadrate cornice
  sable.

      This badge does not conflict with the badge of Eilis ni Roibeard
      O'Boirne: _(Tinctureless) A quatrefoil knot_. There is a DC for
      tincturelessness and another DC for the difference between a
      four lobed quadrate cornice and a quatrefoil knot.

  Aoife inghean N{e'}ill. Name.

      Nice 13th century Gaelic name!

  Aurelia Saturnina. Name and device. Purpure, a celestial sphere
  argent between three bees proper.

      Nice early 1st century Roman name!

  Berach de Prendergast. Name and device. Sable, a tyger rampant and
  on a chief Or three oak leaves fesswise gules.

      The given name was documented in the Letter of Intent from a
      source dated to 1630 (but based on earlier annals), and the
      byname was dated no later than 1325. Although the temporal gap
      is greater than 300 years, _Berach_ is an Irish saint's name and
      attested name dated from the 7th century. 12th to 13th century
      forms such as _Giolla Beraigh_ ("servant/devotee of Berach")
      show that this saint was venerated earlier than 1630. Therefore,
      we can register this name as submitted.

      This name combines a Gaelic saint's name and English byname.
      This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

  Ciara de Agramonte. Name and device. Argent, a bird azure and a
  bordure vert semy of lozenges Or.

  Cold Keep, Shire of. Badge. Azure, three escarbuncles argent.

  Dyrfinna Ulfgaresdohter. Name.

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

  Eirik Daegares sune. Name.

      _Eirik_ is a plausible Old English rendering of the Scandinavian
      _Eirikr_ based on attested examples from PASE.

  Farbjorn Sindri. Name and device. Argent semy of brown sparrows
  proper, a chevron gules.

  Halgar Bjornsson. Name and device. Argent, a fess wavy azure,
  overall a badger rampant gules.

      Submitted as "Halg_i_r Bjornsson", the submitter notified
      kingdom during commentary that he would like the form _Halgar_
      or _Halgarr_ instead of the submitted form _Halgir_. Following
      the Pelican decision meeting he clarified that he would like the
      form _Halgar_ if it could be documented.

      _Halgari_ is a Latin genitive (possessive) form found in the
      name _Ormerum Halgari_, for which the normalized Norwegian
      translation is _Orm Halgeirss{o:}n_. This form is found in
      _Diplomatarium Norvegicum_, dated to 1320
      (http://www.dokpro.uio.no/perl/middelalder/diplom_vise_tekst.prl?b=3621).
      The expected Latinized nominative (base) form is _Halgar_.
      Therefore, we are happy to change the given name to the
      submitter's preferred form.

  Jacob Faulkbourne. Device. Counter-ermine, in pale three lions
  passant argent each maintaining a roundel all within a double
  tressure Or.

  Marguerite Sainteclaire. Name and device. Azure, on a pale argent a
  lotus blossom in profile azure.

      The submitter may wish to know that the form _de Sainte Clair_
      or _Sainte Claire_ is more likely than the submitted form.
      However, examples with the submitted spacing are occasionally
      found by the 15th century.

      This device was redrawn in kingdom with the submitter's
      approval. The initially submitted depiction also seemed
      registerable.

  Mihr N{u^}sh al-Zahra'. Alternate name Theresa Solis.

      Nice 16th century Spanish name!

  Sextus of Hartwood. Device. Per saltire purpure and sable, a saltire
  vert fimbriated and a bordure argent.

  Symonne du Bois. Name and device. Per pale purpure and argent, two
  hounds sejant respectant counterchanged and on a chief sable three
  horseshoes inverted argent.

      Nice 15th century French name!

  Tyrannius Darius. Name and device. Per pale Or and gules, two
  seahorses respectant counterchanged.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "4th-5th C Roman
      Provincial". Following the Pelican decision meeting, Metron
      Ariston noted that a _Tyrannius Rufinus_ (345-410 CE) was born
      in northern Italy, lived in Egypt and Palestine, and was
      ordained at Jerusalem, citing the _Dictionary of Christian
      Biography and Literature_
      (http://www.ccel.org/ccel/wace/biodict.html?term=Rufinus%20of%20Aquileia).
      _Darius_ is a Latinized form of a Greek name, also found as the
      name of a 4th century saint who was martyred in Nicaea.
      Therefore, this name appears to meet the submitter's request for
      an authentic 4th-5th century Roman name from the provinces.

  Ulf tr{e'}telgja. Name.

      _Ulf_ was documented in the Letter of Intent as an Old Swedish
      given name found in _Nordiskt runnamnslexikon_, but was undated.
      _Ulf_ is also an Anglo-Saxon given name in PASE s.n. Ulf, with
      numerous instances dating between the late 8th and 11th
      centuries. The byname _tr{e'}telgja_ is the Old Norse byname of
      a 6th-7th century Swedish king. Therefore, this name potentially
      combines an Old English given name and Old Norse byname. As both
      elements are dated prior to 1100 and the temporal gap is under
      300 years, this is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of
      SENA.

      The submitter may wish to know that a wholly Old Norse form of
      this name is _{U'}lfr tr{e'}telgja_. If he prefers this form, he
      can submit a request for reconsideration.

  William de Margat. Name change from Wilrich von Hessen.

      The submitter's previous name, _Wilrich von Hessen_, is retained
      as an alternate name.

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

**** ANSTEORRA acceptances ****

  Absolon of Hereford. Device. Per pale gules and sable, a sheaf of
  halberds argent.

  Bastienne d'Arcis. Device. Per pale vert and azure, two musimons
  combattant argent and a chief ermine.

  Emma Katerina Wight. Name and device. Argent, a heart gules within
  an orle of grapevine vert fructed purpure, a chief embattled vert.

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

**** ARTEMISIA acceptances ****

  Isabel Cordera. Name.

      Both elements are found in Spain in the 16th century. In
      addition, this exact name is dated to 1608 in the FamilySearch
      Historical Records, making this an excellent late period Spanish
      name!

  Jon the Handsome. Name.

      _Handsome_ was documented as a 16th century English adjective.
      We note that literal bynames are not likely at this time in
      England, but this name is registerable. In fact, the unmarked,
      inherited form _Handsome_ is a surname in 1582 England (in the
      FamilySearch Historical Records). We note that the marked form
      _the Handsome_ is also a lingua Anglica form of the Middle
      English _le Bel_.

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

**** ATENVELDT acceptances ****

  Aibhil{i'}n Bhaire{i'}d. Name.

      Submitted as "Aibhil{i'}n _inghean_ _B_aire{i'}d", _Baire{i'}d_
      is the Gaelic form of a borrowed Anglo-Norman surname, not a
      given name. Without evidence to show that a literal patronym can
      be formed from such a surname, we cannot register this name as
      submitted. In addition, due to the requirements of Gaelic
      grammar, the surname must be lenited. Therefore, we have removed
      the patronymic particle _inghean_ and have lenited the surname:
      "Aibhil{i'}n_ Bh_aire{i'}d".

  Aillenn inghean Chonaill. Device. Vert, two wolves combattant Or and
  in base a moon in her plenitude argent.

  Ambrose the Gutless. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      _Gutless_ is an interpolated spelling of the early 17th century
      _gut-less_ and _gutlesse_, found in the Oxford English
      Dictionary. The submitter may wish to know that literal
      descriptive bynames are not likely for 17th century England, but
      the name is registerable.

  Elezabeth Dayseye. Name.

  Frederick Gloucester. Name and device. Azure, a cross between four
  martlets, a bordure embattled argent.

  Garrett Seaburn. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Nice 16th century English name!

  Ignacio Diaz de Castile. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      _Diaz de Castile_ is grandfathered to the submitter, as it is
      part of the registered name of his father, _Adam Carlos Diaz de
      Castile_.

  Sigr{i'}{dh}r {U'}lfsd{o'}ttir of Aschehyrst. Device. Sable, a key
  inverted and on a chief argent two compass stars, the dexter sable
  and the sinister gules.

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

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

**** ATLANTIA acceptances ****

  Abigael MacDonald. Name change from Iollann of Glencairn.

      Nice Scots name for c.1600!

      The submitter's previous name, _Iollann of Glencairn_, is
      retained as an alternate name.

  Bjorn inn h{a'}vi. Badge. Sable, a bend Or between a natural
  seahorse and three swords argent.

  Camillo da Milano. Device. Per saltire sable and argent, a mullet of
  eight points counterchanged argent and gules.

  Cornelia Caeciliana. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "500-1000 CE Roman".
      This is an authentic classical Roman name, but is less likely
      from the 6th century on. Therefore, it may be authentic for her
      desired time period, but we do not know for sure.

      The Letter of Intent stated that the submitter's previous name,
      _Narumi Rakeshe_, is to be released. As this name is not
      registered, we cannot release it.

  Edward Shirebrooke. Badge. Argent, an Algiz rune within an annulet
  vert.

  Frixco Osnath. Device (see RETURNS for name change). Per pale sable
  and vert, two coneys salient respectant attired and a chief indented
  argent.

  Fyen van Amsterdam. Name and device. Azure, a six-petaled daisy Or,
  on a chief argent three wolves rampant contourny vert.

  George Flyk. Device. Per bend Or and checky argent and sable, a bend
  and in chief three roses gules.

  Grimkell of Bright Hills. Device. Per bend lozengy Or and azure and
  gules, a wolf rampant contourny regardant per bend gules and argent.

  Ingegerd Kastanrazi. Name change from Isabella Ironstone.

      The byname _Kastanrazi_ is glossed in Geirr Bassi as "wiggle
      arse". This name is not offensive:

           Those present at the Pelican decision meeting did not
           think that _Raza-_ is offensive, noting that "arse"
           does not have the same connotation as the returned
           "anus" or "asshole". Therefore, we are able to
           register this name. [Raza-Sk{u'}li, June 2015,
           A-Atenveldt]

      The submitter's previous name, _Isabella Ironstone_, is retained
      as an alternate name.

  Johan Andersson. Name.

  Morishima Aishiko. Device. Argent, a phoenix purpure rising from
  flames proper issuing from a sustained open book sable.

  Rose Eileen Robertson. Name.

      Submitted as "Rose _A_ileen Robertson", the second byname was
      changed in kingdom to "_E_ileen" because the spelling _Aileen_
      could not be documented in our period. We were unable to
      document the preferred spelling, so we have not restored the
      spelling to the submitted form.

  Serena Giovanna de Verona. Name.

      Although _Serena_ was documented in the Letter of Intent as a
      Spanish given name, it is also found in 15th century Pisa in
      Juliana de Luna's "Names from 15th and 16th Century Pisa" (2014
      KWHSS Proceedings). Therefore, this name is wholly Italian
      instead of Spanish-Italian.

  Wanda Ostojowna. Badge. (Fieldless) On a billet fesswise sable
  transfixed by an arrow bendwise sinister inverted Or a plate.

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

**** AVACAL acceptances ****

  Rosaline Hampton. Name and device. Purpure, a goat clymant contourny
  argent, a bordure Or.

  Rosaline Hampton. Badge. (Fieldless) A mortar and pestle purpure.

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

**** CAID acceptances ****

  Alana Hostilius. Name and device. Argent, on a pale between two
  lightning bolts palewise azure, a blonde angel with her hands
  clasped behind her back proper, winged and vested of a loincloth Or.

      The Letter of Intent stated that _Hostilius_ is the registered
      byname of the submitter's father, _Alexander Hostilius of Caid_.
      However, the legal relationship was attested by two heralds
      rather than the submitter's father himself at the time of
      submission. We do not allow heralds or other third parties to
      attest legal relationships that they themselves are not a part
      of.

      Luckily for the submitter, a formal letter from the father
      attesting to the legal relationship was provided during
      commentary. Therefore, the byname _Hostilius_ can be registered
      to the submitter using the grandfather clause.

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

  Angus Ian MacGregor. Name.

      _Angus_ and _Ian_ were documented in the Letter of Intent as
      English given names. English allows the use of double given
      names. In Scots, however, double given names are not a pattern
      found in Appendix A of SENA. Therefore, the question was raised
      after the Pelican decision meeting whether the English double
      given names could be combined with the Scots byname. In
      September 2014, we ruled that, "The use of double given names in
      Scotland is found occasionally in the 16th and early 17th
      centuries (FamilySearch Historical Records). As this pattern is
      uncommon, we decline to add it to Appendix C at this time"
      [Cecily Grace MacBean, A-Ansteorra]. Therefore, as the pattern
      of double given names is found in both England and Scotland,
      this name is registerable as submitted.

  Aquilia Verecunda. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Nice Roman name!

  Borggeir j{a'}rns{i'}{dh}a. Name and device. Quarterly purpure and
  sable, a tower Or and overall two halberds in saltire argent.

  Calafia, Barony of. Badge. Per fess sable and azure, a trident head
  fesswise Or.

  Claudia Prima. Device change. Gules, three amphorae Or.

      The submitter's old device, "Per pale azure and Or, a
      fleur-de-lys and a bordure counterchanged", is retained as a
      badge.

  Claudia Prima. Badge. (Fieldless) On an amphora Or a fish haurient
  gules.

  Claudius of Jericho. Name and device. Azure, a hyena salient Or
  marked sable atop a base argent masoned sable, in sinister canton a
  decrescent argent.

      _Jericho_ is a lingua Anglica form of the Hebrew _Yeriho_ or the
      Latin _Hiericus_.

      The hyena is a period heraldic charge and thus does not carry a
      step from period practice. From the May 2006 LoAR (Oriel
      Gibberish, A-Calontir):

           A hyena is a dog-like creature with a ridge of hair
           and a lion-like tail. Hyenas were known in period and
           are found in period heraldic tracts; Bossewell's
           Workes of Armorie, 1572, f. 49: "Beareth Argente, an
           Hien saliant Sable, and one Escaloppe sinistre
           d'Azure. Thys is a cruell beaste, in quantitie like
           unto the wolfe: & he is called Hyena of Hyando, for yt
           hee reyseth to hys praye with open mouth and voyce,
           and in his necke is heare, as in the necke of an
           horsse, and upon al the length of hys ridge also."
           While not biologically a canine, in SCA heraldry a
           hyena is classed as a canine and will conflict with
           all other canines.

  Edward the Pink. Name and device. Per chevron argent ermined gules
  and gules ermined argent.

      The byname _the Pink_ is a lingua Anglica form of the Middle
      English _le Pynch_.

  Elske le Dragon. Name and device. Vert, two dragons combattant tails
  entwined, on a chief argent four hearts vert.

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

  Gr{i'}ma k{o,}ttr. Name.

  Hallr brjost Starsson. Heraldic will.

      Upon his death, the submitter's registered names and armory will
      be released.

  Hannah of Nordwache. Alternate name Hannah Sigri{dh}ardottir.

      _Hannah_ is grandfathered to the submitter.

      The Letter of Intent stated that _Sigr{i'}{dh}r_ is the
      registered given name of the submitter's mother, _Sigr{i'}{dh}r
      hv{i'}ta refr_, implying that it is grandfathered to the
      submitter. However, the legal relationship was attested by two
      heralds rather than the submitter's mother herself at the time
      of submission. We do not allow heralds or other third parties to
      attest legal relationships that they themselves are not a part
      of.

      In addition, only the exact registered element can be
      grandfathered. Modifying the mother's name by changing it to a
      genitive (possessive) form and adding the marker _-dottir_ is
      not covered under the grandfather clause.

      Luckily for the submitter, commenters were able to document the
      construction of the byname, so the submitter need not rely on
      the grandfather clause, and we can register this name as
      submitted.

  Jordan of Nordwache. Alternate name Jordan Sigri{dh}ardottir.

      _Jordan_ is grandfathered to the submitter.

      The Letter of Intent stated that _Sigr{i'}{dh}r_ is the
      registered given name of the submitter's mother, _Sigr{i'}{dh}r
      hv{i'}ta refr_, implying that it is grandfathered to the
      submitter. However, the legal relationship was attested by two
      heralds rather than the submitter's mother herself at the time
      of submission. We do not allow heralds or other third parties to
      attest legal relationships that they themselves are not a part
      of.

      In addition, only the exact registered element can be
      grandfathered. Modifying the mother's name by changing it to a
      genitive (possessive) form and adding the marker _-dottir_ is
      not covered under the grandfather clause.

      Luckily for the submitter, commenters were able to document the
      construction of the byname, so the submitter need not rely on
      the grandfather clause, and we can register this name as
      submitted.

  Joshua al-Tabrizi. Name and device. Purpure, a dragon sejant between
  in cross four mullets of eight points Or.

      Commentary noted that _Joshua_ is the submitter's legal given
      name. However, the attestation, by only one herald, did not meet
      the requirements given in the June 2015 Cover Letter.
      Specifically, we require documentation, such as a copy of a
      driver's license, showing the submitter's legal name, or an
      attestation from two heralds (or a herald and another officer)
      that includes the type of document that was witnessed and
      whether the name in question was a given name, middle name, or
      surname. Simply stating that the submitter is personally known
      to the herald(s) in question does not fulfill these
      requirements. Therefore, _Joshua_ is not eligible for the legal
      name allowance for the present submission, and must be
      documented.

      Luckily for the submitter, _Joshua_ is found in Italian context
      for Jewish men in "Names of Jews in Rome In the 1550's" by
      Yehoshua ben Haim haYerushalmi
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/yehoshua/rome_names.html).
      Therefore, we can register this name without relying on the
      legal name allowance.

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

  Liam Makfersan. Badge. (Fieldless) A rabbit rampant gules
  maintaining a lantern Or.

  Lucius Verrinius Atticus. Name and device. Sable, a three-headed dog
  rampant contourny and on a base argent a mullet of four points
  gules.

  Marius Delacroix. Name.

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

  Matsudaira Omiyame. Name and device. Per pale wavy purpure and Or,
  an ounce and a dragon combattant counterchanged.

      As dated in Solveig Throndardottir's _Name Construction in
      Medieval Japan_ (NCMJ, revised edition), there is a temporal gap
      of far greater than 500 years between the surname _Matsudaira_
      (dated to 1572) and the given name _Omiyame_ (dated to 784).
      However, NCMJ generally only provides a single dated example for
      the elements. We note that the _Matsudaira_ line was founded in
      the 14th century by Matsudaira Chikauji and was named after a
      village (see Herbert E. Plutschow, _The Significance of Names in
      a Religious, Political and Social Context_;
      https://books.google.com/books?id=fNQjDQ-mWYgC&pg=PA157&lpg=PA157).

      Citing Bun'ei Tsunoda, _Nihon no joseimei: rekishiteki
      tenbo{'I}"_, Keystone noted after the Pelican decision meeting
      that the _-me_ suffix marks feminine given names in early Japan.
      Although this suffix is found as late as 1575, it largely
      dropped out of use by c.1450. In addition, the _kanji_ used to
      write this suffix changed over time. The _kanji_ for _-me_ used
      in the attested given name _Omiyame_ was replaced with the one
      used in the names _Kokurome_ (784), _Wotome_ (1183), and
      _Ko'ne'neme_ (1572), all found in NCMJ Revised Edition, p. 102.
      The 8th century example of _Kokurome_ shows that _Omiyame_ could
      also have been written using the later _kanji_.

      Although _O-miya_ has the reading of "small" and "shinto shrine,
      palace", adding the suffix can make it sound like a nickname.
      Women in Japanese literature are occasionally referred to by
      nicknames, such as where they reside at court. And, in fact,
      _{O-}miya_ is the name of a character in an 11th century
      Japanese novel, _The Tale of Genji_
      (http://www.taleofgenji.org/characters.html). Therefore, we can
      give the submitter the benefit of the doubt that the name
      elements are temporally compatible.

  Rutilia Fausta. Badge. (Fieldless) A sea-urchin Or.

      Nice badge!

  Saratos Prometheos. Name and device. Argent, on a pale between two

  S{e'}amus mac N{e'}ill U{i'} Chonchobhair. Name and device. Vert, on
  a pale between four tankards Or, a crowth vert.

      Submitted as "S{e'}amus mac N{e'}ill U{i'} _C_onchobhair", we
      have lenited the byname due to the requirements of Gaelic
      grammar in order to register this name: "U{i'} _Ch_onchobhair".

      A crowth is an anglo-saxon lyre. It is not heraldically

  Alexandra Jessen. Name and device. Gules, two pallets between two
  horses salient respectant argent.

      Submitted as "Alexandra _R{i'}kv{e'}_ Jessen", _Alexandra_ and
      _Jessen_ were both documented for 16th century Germany, but
      _R{i'}kv{e'}_ is a Scandinavian name dated to the early to
      mid-11th century. Because this name combines two languages from
      different regional naming groups and the temporal gap is greater
      than 300 years, we are unable to register this name as
      submitted. Therefore, we have dropped _R{i'}kv{e'}_ with the
      submitter's permission in order to register this name.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the front legs of the horses
      closer together.

  Amalie Helena Hasselbring. Name and device. Per bend Or and gules, a
  double-headed eagle sable and a Latin cross flory Or.

      _Hasselbring_ was not documented in the Letter of Intent. In
      commentary, Metron Ariston found this element in the
      FamilySearch Historical Records from Germany, dated to 1650. In
      addition, she found the given names _Amalie_ and _Helena_ in the

  vert, three garbs and a plough Or.

  Rose Wolfden. Name and device. Per chevron Or and sable, in chief a
  pegasus segreant and a wyvern erect respectant gules.

      Precedent states:

           Questions were raised about the appropriateness of the
           spelling _Wolfden_, as the source cited, "Faire Names
           for English Folk," normalizes names. An examination of
           the source material indicates that the original form
           is _Wolfde_, which may represent _Wolfden_ or some
           other spelling. Luckily, commenters were able to find
           the submitted spelling dated to the time of Edward III
           (1327-1377) in _The Place-Names of Warwickshire_.
           Therefore, it may be registered as submitted. [Alys

  Akiyama Kintsune. Name.

      The question was raised whether the use of the element _Kin-_ in
      the given name is presumptuous. This element has the meaning of
      "public official/officer/noble/duke" in classical Chinese (see
      Solveig Throndardottir's _Name Construction in Medieval Japan_,
      revised edition, p. 192). As part of an attested given name, the
      use of an element that may indicate rank is not an unmistakable
      claim of rank. Therefore, the use of this element is not
      presumptuous, as it is clear it is not a form of address.

      The submitter requested authenticity for a Japanese name. This
      name is not authentic because _Akiyama_ is most likely a _buke_
      (military class) surname. _Buke_ names follow the pattern of a
      family name/surname followed by a _yobina_ (general use name)
      and a _nanori_ (official/formal given name). This name only
      contains a surname and a _nanori_.

  Bardolph Karlson. Name.

      The submitter originally requested authenticity for a 12th
      century Anglo-Saxon name, but withdrew this request. The
      submitter may wish to know that this name is authentic for early
      17th century England.

  Bess Brechin. Name and device. Gules, on a saltire argent between
  four maple leaves Or five gouttes palewise gules.

      Nice 16th century Scottish name!

  Cristina Volpina. Badge. Gules, on a bezant a sun-cross gules.

      Commenters wondered whether this design was too close to the
      X-Men logo. It is not. The rotation clears the potential
      presumption by changing the orientation.

      It also does not presume upon the important non-SCA arms of the
      Arch-Steward of the Holy Roman Empire: _Gules, an orb Or_. There
      is a DC for the addition of a tertiary charge group and, by
      precedent, there is at least a DC between an orb and a roundel
      [Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, A-Caid, May 2010 LoAR].

  Dietrich of Timis. Device. Sable, a tower conjoined to park pales
  extending to sinister and on a chief argent an eagle vert.

  Dragonship Haven, Barony of. Guild name Worshipful Company of
  Artificers of Dragonship Haven.

      Submitted as "Worshipful Company of Artificers", precedent
      implies that _[designator] of Artificers_ is too generic to be
      registered:

           [registering Company of Artificers of Marinus]
           Submitted as Company of Artificers, we have with the
           consent of the submissions herald, added the phrase
           "of Marinus" to make it less generic. [Marinus, Barony
           of, September 1996, p. 3]

      The December 2002 Cover Letter states that the addition of a
      branch name does not make such a non-personal name less generic:

           A submission this month raised the issue of generic
           identifiers again. Given the confusion that exists
           regarding what is and is not a generic identifier, as
           well as how generic identifiers are used, we are
           providing a clarification of this issue.

           Generic identifiers are descriptions that may be
           associated with registered items (mainly badges) to
           identify the use of that item. Unlike registered names
           (award names, order names, guild names, household
           names, et cetera), generic identifiers are not
           registered as an independent item and are not
           protected from conflict. This does not mean that the
           group may not use this identifier, but simply that we
           will not limit the usage of that identifier to a
           single group.

           Names that fall into the generic identifier category
           are names that would reasonably be used by more than
           one branch for common functions of the branch. All
           kingdoms can have a _university_. All baronies can
           have a _baronial guard_. All groups can have an
           _equestrian guild_.

           Adding the name of the branch to the description does
           not affect generic identifiers (because branch
           identifiers are transparent for conflict). As an
           example, _Outlands Equestrian Guild_ falls into the
           generic category because the only thing that would
           differentiate it from _Equestrian Guild of Calontir_
           are the branch identifiers _Outlands_ and _of
           Calontir_.

      However, later precedent shows that _Worshipful Company of X_ is
      not generic when a branch name is included:

           Submitted as a badge for _The Most Worshipful Company
           of {AE}thelmearc Cooks and Bakers_, as that name is
           neither registered nor a generic identifier we are
           unable to make this association. Recent precedent
           states:

                Which gets us to the main question -- is
                _Worshipful Company of X_, where X is a
                generic descriptive element a generic
                identifier? The January 1993 coverletter
                [sic] had this to say on the subject "A
                better term might be "job-description": a
                simple declaration of the intended use of
                the badge...So long as the badge is
                associated with a purely functional name,
                it's [the name] neither checked for conflict
                during submission or protected from conflict
                afterwards." The addition of the adjective
                Worshipful lifts this out of the realm of
                purely functional, even through the
                adjective is part of the designator and not
                part of the descriptive element. [Lochac,
                Kingdom of, A-Lochac, 08/2004]

           [{AE}thelmearc, Kingdom of, October 2006,
           A-{AE}thelmearc]

      Therefore, we uphold the precedents that _Worshipful Company of
      X_ is not generic as long as a branch name is also included and
      have added _of Dragonship Haven_ in order to register this guild
      name. This ruling does not mean that generic identifiers in
      general can be made registerable in this manner.

  Fearghus mac Cail{i'}n. Device. Per fess sable and argent, a sun Or
  and a wolfhound courant sable and in chief two mullets of seven
  points argent.

  Fearghus mac Griogair. Device. Argent, a squirrel's head cabossed
  sable jessant-de-lys vert.

      The use of jessant-de-lys with anything other than a lion's or
      leopard's head is a step from period practice.

  Halld{i'}s {U'}lfsd{o'}ttir. Name.

      Submitted as "Halld_{i'}_s {U'}lfsd_o_ttir", the accent in the
      given name was inadvertently dropped by kingdom: "Halld_i_s
      {U'}lfsdottir". We have restored the given name to the submitted
      form. In addition, we have modified the byname in order to use
      accents consistently throughout the name: " {U'}lfsd_{o'}_ttir".

  Hrafn Isauga. Name.

      Submitted as "Hrafn Is_-augu_", the constructed byname _Is-augu_
      was intended to mean "ice-eyes". In commentary, ffride
      wlffsdotter found examples such as _hrakauga_ ("crack-eye"),
      _j{a'}rnauga_ ("iron-eye"), and _kr{o'}kauga_ "hook-eye" in
      _Tilnavne i den islandske oldlitteratur_ by Finnur J{o'}nsson
      (http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Tilnavne) and in Lind Personbinamn.
      However, all of these examples use the singular form "eye".
      Therefore, we have changed the byname to the singular form
      _Isauga_ ("ice-eye") to register this name.

  Kellenin de Lanwinnauch. Name change from Rys Waytheman.

      Nice Welsh name for around 1200!

      The submitter's previous name, _Rys Waytheman_, is retained as
      an alternate name.

  Morwenna O Hurlihie. Name and device. Vert, in fess three drop
  spindles argent.

      _Morwenna_ is an English saint's name.

  Regnulf of Crakehale. Name and device. Vert, a corncrake and on a
  chief embattled Or three acorns vert.

      This is the defining instance of the corncrake in Society
      armory. This bird is described in "_De Arte Venandi Cum Avibus
      of Frederick II of Hohenstaufen_" and the spelling "_Corne
      Crake_" dated to 1455 in the OED.

      For purpose of conflict checking, the bird is considered
      poultry-shaped.

  Settmour Swamp, Barony of. Order name Company of Mud.

      This order name follows the pattern of naming an order after a
      founder. In this case, _Mud_ is a late period English surname
      used as a given name.

  Settmour Swamp, Barony of. Order name Order of the Copper Tower.

      The pattern _Order of the [Metal] Tower_ is grandfathered to the
      submitter.

  Syele von Heidelberg. Badge. (Fieldless) On a garb Or a scythe vert.

  {TH}orsteinn Hro{dh}bjartsson. Device. Per pale azure and argent, a

  a chief Or five hop cones inverted vert.

  Vivien de Valois. Device. Argent, a lion passant double queued and
  in base two crescents gules, a bordure sable.

  Yamada Kiku. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for a Japanese name, but
      with no specific time period.

      The given name _Kiku_ was popular in the Muromachi period
      (1333-1573). However, Keystone noted in commentary that it is
      very unusual for a monothematic feminine given name like _Kiku_
      to be used without a prefix or suffix. In this case, _Kiku_ is
      attested during the Muromachi period (1333-1573). At that time,
      according to Solveig Throndardottir's _Name Construction in
      Medieval Japan_ (NCMJ, revised edition), "the *o-* prefix to
      women's names became universal for the _buke_ class. Further,
      their names were frequently followed by the common name of a
      father, a husband, or another male relative." Therefore, the
      given name plus the honorific would be _O-kiku_, with or without
      the male relative's common name.

      In addition, Keystone considered the surname _Yamada_ to be
      unlikely, as it is a _kuge_ (imperial court nobility) name. NCMJ
      states that women retained their _uji_ (clan names) throughout
      life and these _uji_ were combined with their personal names by
      the Kamakura period.

      Therefore, this name is not authentic, but it is registerable.

  Antonio Lucenzo de Zaragoza. Name.

      Commenters noted that the documentation included in the Letter
      of Intent supported the form "Lucen_ti_o" instead of the
      submitted form "Lucen_z_o". However, _-zo_ and _-tio_ are
      occasionally used interchangeably in 16th-17th century Rome and
      its environs. _Lorenzo/Lorentio_ and _Vincenzo/Vincentio_ are
      found in _Descriptio Urbis: The Roman Census of 1527_ by Egmont
      Lee (https://books.google.com/books?id=lt6UAAAAIAA). The byname
      _Fiorentio_ is found in Yehoshua ben Haim haYerushalmi, "Names
      of Jews in Rome In the 1550's"
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Jewish/rome_article.html), and
      the form _Fiorenzo_ is found in _Martyrologio Romano_
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=rk5LAAAAcAAJ), published in
      Bracciano in 1621. Therefore, we can register the name as
      submitted.

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

  Best Pickel Ambberger. Name.

      Commenters asked if this name was obtrusively modern. PN2E of
      SENA states:

           No name will be registered that either in whole or in
           part is obtrusively modern. Something is said to be
           obtrusively modern when it makes a modern joke or
           reference that destroys medieval ambience and drags
           the average person mentally back to the present day.
           Obtrusiveness can be either in the written form or
           when spoken. A period name that has a modern referent
           will not generally be considered obtrusively modern.
           Only extreme examples will be returned.

           For example, names that have been ruled obtrusively
           modern and hence returned include _Porsche Audi_,
           _Artemisian Tank Corps_, and _Geky Herald_ (pronounced
           like "Geeky Herald"). Names like _Edmond Fitzgerald_,
           _Red Boke Herald_, _Drew Steele_, and _Mould de
           Cheder_ have been allowed.

      _Best Pickle Ambberger_ is no more obtrusively modern than
      _Mould de Cheder_, cited above.

      The submitter's old device, "Lozengy argent and azure, on a pale

  Elizabeth Rowe. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      This exact name is found in England in 1589 (in the FamilySearch
      Historical Records), making this an excellent 16th century
      English name!

      This name does not conflict with the registered name _Elizabeth
      de Rose_ because a syllable (_de_) has been removed and a
      consonant has been changed in the byname (_s_ versus _w_).
      Therefore, this name is clear under PN3C1 of SENA.

      This name also does not conflict with the registered name
      _Elizabeth Rea_ because the bynames are substantially different
      in sound and appearance. Therefore, this name is clear under
      PN3C2 of SENA.

  Els Piderman. Badge. (Fieldless) An owl within and conjoined to a
  chaplet of daisies argent.

  Fionnabhair inghean ui Mheadhra and Gabriella Borromei. Joint badge.
  Azure, a cauldron and on a bordure argent an orle gules.

      The Letter of Intent requested association with _Lochac Cook's
      Guild_. There are two issues with that request: the name is not
      registered and it cannot be registered to the submitter. The use
      of _Lochac_ implies that it is a Kingdom guild and thus it
      cannot be registered to individuals. By itself, _Cook's Guild_
      is a generic identifier and thus also not registerable. Thus, we
      are registering this badge without the association.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the wire bail to chief,
      clearly above the body of the cauldron.

  Ynys Fawr, Barony of. Badge. Azure platy, a penguin argent.

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

      The Letter of Intent requested the association of this badge
      with "_Antarctic Territories_". This name is not registered and
      "_Antarctic Territories_" is not sufficiently generic to be
      associated here without an explicit name submission.

      _{`a}_). We have corrected the accent in order to register this
      name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "16th c Scotland".
      Although _Eoin_ appears as a Scottish Gaelic name in the 15th
      century Islay Charter, we do not have any instances of this name
      in 16th century Scotland. _M{a'}rtainn_ is a 16th century
      Scottish Gaelic element. As we only have evidence of _Eoin_ as
      an Irish Gaelic name in the 16th century, this name does not
      meet the submitter's request for an authentic 16th century
      Scottish name, but it is registerable.

  Hara Haname. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Heian-Kamakura,
      Japan". This name is an authentic late 12th century Hei'an era
      name, meeting the submitter's request.

  H{o,}skuldr Gunnarsson. Name and device. Per pale argent and azure,
  a lynx's face sable and in chief an axe fesswise reversed argent

  Jean-Robert Le Marchand de Sel. Badge. Argent, a heart gules

  Katerina Laverok. Name.

      Nice 15th century Scots name!

  Sighvatr b{i'}ldr. Name.

  Vladimir Radescu. Name and device. Paly Or and azure, a winged
  monkey rampant sable.

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

  Wilhelm M{o^}sere. Name and device. Per chevron throughout azure and
  argent, two compasses argent and a brown bear's head cabossed
  proper.

  Abigail MacNaught. Badge. Vairy Or and gules, a reremouse and a
  bordure embattled sable.

  {A'}d{i'}sa {i'}korni. Name change from Alditha de la Tye.

      The submitter's previous name, _Alditha de la Tye_, is retained
      as an alternate name.

  Killian MacKenzie. Badge. (Fieldless) In saltire a quill pen argent
  and a needle Or.

  Marcus Annius Corbulo. Name and device. Per chevron vert and sable,
  a maiden representing the goddess Minerva, wearing a Roman helm
  raised, maintaining a spear and a round shield Or.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "1st-2nd century
      Roman". This name is plausible for the 1st century CE, so meets
      this request.

  Minamoto Shizuka. Device. Per chevron inverted sable and purpure, a
  hawk stooping within an orle surmounted by three lotus blossoms in
  profile argent.

      There is a step from period practice for having a group of any
      charge other than a fleur-de-lys surmounting the orle.

  Alexander Gerritsen of Torthorwald, called Gerrits Ekie. Name change
  from Brion Gennadyevich Gorodin.

      Submitted as "Alexander Gerritsen of Torthorwald, called
      Gerrit_'s_ Ekie", the apostrophe would not have been used in
      period. Therefore, we have removed it.

      The overall pattern of a full name with a nickname or alias was
      documented for late period Scotland, with examples such as
      _Walter Lytle in Bombie, callit Wattis Kinds_ and _Christie
      Armstrong, called Armstrong's Christie_. However, _Alexander_
      and _Gerrit_ were documented in the Letter of Intent as Dutch
      given names, and _Gerritsen_ was documented as a Dutch patronym.
      Evidence of this pattern was not demonstrated for the
      Netherlands in our period; therefore, we need to redocument
      these elements for the English/Welsh regional naming group.

      _Alexander_ and _Gerrit_ are both late period English given
      names found in the FamilySearch Historical Records, dated to the
      late 16th and early 17th centuries. _Gerrit_ is most likely
      derived from the given name _Gerard_ (see Bardsley, s.n.
      Garrard), forms of which are found in England from at least the
      early 13th century (Middle English Dictionary). Late period
      English inherited bynames such as _Nicollsen_, _Stevensen_, and
      _Johnsen_ (FamilySearch Historical Records) show that
      _Gerritsen_ is a plausible constructed surname for the 16th
      century.

      _Ekie_ is a possible spelling of the late 16th century English
      given name _Eky_, found in 'Border Papers volume 2: June 1596',
      in _Calendar of Border Papers: Volume 2, 1595-1603_
      (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/cal-border-papers/vol2/pp133-145).
      Examples of _ie/y_ switches in the terminal syllable include
      _Anthony/Anthonie_, _Geoffry/Geoffrie_, and _Avery/Averie_, all
      found in the FamilySearch Historical Records.

      Aliases also appear in various English and Welsh court
      documents. One example is _Thomas Gouk otherwise called Gandre
      of London 'purser'_, found in 'Close Rolls, Edward III: January
      1361' (_Calendar of Close Rolls, Edward III: Volume 11,
      1360-1364_,
      http://www.british-history.ac.uk/cal-close-rolls/edw3/vol11/p239).
      Another is _John Toky called Banbury of Lymeryk in Ireland_,
      found in 'Close Rolls, Richard II: December 1381' (_Calendar of
      Close Rolls, Richard II: Volume 2, 1381-1385_,
      http://www.british-history.ac.uk/cal-close-rolls/ric2/vol2/p47).
      Court documents from Wales include examples such as _Jankin ap
      Ieuan ap Howell, otherwise Jankin Vachan, of Kevencarnau in the
      county of Glamorgan, labourer_, found in 'Glamorgan Calendar
      Rolls and Gaol Files: 1542-94' (_Cardiff Records: Volume 2_,
      http://www.british-history.ac.uk/cardiff-records/vol2/pp152-165).

      Although it is unlikely that such complex names were used in
      everyday life, they are clearly found as documentary forms.
      Therefore, we can register full names with aliases for the
      English/Welsh regional naming group.

      The submitter's previous name, _Brion Gennadyevich Gorodin_, is
      retained as an alternate name.

  Euthymius Alakaseus. Name change from Michael of Darkwater.

      _Euthymius_ is a Latinized form of the Greek _Euthymios_, found
      at "The Prosopography of the Byzantine World (PBW)"
      (http://www.pbe.kcl.ac.uk/data/D26/F36.htm).

      This name combines a Latin given name and a Greek byname. This
      is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA. If the
      submitter prefers the wholly Greek form _Euthymios Alakaseus_,
      he can submit a request for reconsideration.

      The submitter's previous name, _Michael of Darkwater_, is
      retained as an alternate name.

  Marie MacPherson. Device. Ermine, a domestic cat herissony contourny
  sable, a bordure embattled azure.

      Please advise the submitter to draw fewer and larger ermine
      spots.

  Angelo Sidoti. Name change from {U'}lfarr vei{dh}ima{dh}r
  Eysteinsson.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "15th-16th century
      Sicilian".

      Both elements are found in _The Jews in Sicily, Volume 10
      Notaries of Palermo: Part One_, by Shlomo Simonsohn
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=PNmvCQAAQBAJ), dated to the
      15th century. Therefore, this name meets the submitter's request
      for an authentic 15th century Sicilian name.

      The submitter's previous name, _{U'}lfarr vei{dh}ima{dh}r
      Eysteinsson_, is retained as an alternate name.

  Anna von Darniburc. Name and device. Per chevron azure and argent,
  three marigolds counterchanged Or and gules, all slipped and leaved
  vert.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "11th-14th century
      German". The place name _Darniburc_ was dated in the Letter of
      Intent to the 11th century. Commenters noted that the
      preposition _de_ is more likely at this time. However, instances
      of _von_ and its variant _vone_ are found in Socin, p. 246,
      citing an 11th century charter. Therefore, this name meets the
      submitter's request for an authentic 11th century German name.

      The submitter may wish to know that a later form of this
      placename is _Derenburg_, found as a header form in Hermann
      Oesterley, _Historisch-geographisches w{o:}rterbuch des
      deutschen mittelalters_
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=I5IOAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA120). It is
      dated to 1306 in _Urkundenbuch des Hochstifts Halberstadt und
      seiner Bisch{o:}fe: 1304-1361_, edited by Gustav Schmidt (entry
      no. 1783, p. 28,
      https://books.google.com/books?id=KPkUAAAAQAAJ). _Derenburg_ was
      also found in sources from the 15th and 16th centuries, and is
      the modern form of this place name.

      If the submitter prefers the form _Anna von Derenburg_, which is
      authentic from the early 14th century to the end of our period,
      she can submit a request for reconsideration.

  Beri le Tuillier. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "13-14 cent
      France/Northern Spain". Both the given name and byname are found
      in Paris in 1292, so this is an authentic 13th century French
      name.

  Bersi E{dh}var{dh}arson. Name change from Bera
  E{dh}var{dh}ard{o'}ttir (see RETURNS for device).

      The submitter's previous name, _Bera E{dh}var{dh}ard{o'}ttir_,
      is released.

  Catelot la Tuilliere. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "13-14 cent
      France/Northern Spain". Both the given name and the masculine
      form of the byname are found in Paris in 1292, so this is an
      authentic 13th century French name.

  Catrin Aderyn. Badge. Lozengy vert and Or, a chief embattled argent.

      Nice badge!

  Da'ud ibn Ali. Device change. Per pale sable and azure, a horse
  rampant atop a mountain argent.

      The submitter's old device, "Per pale sable and azure, a horse
      rampant and a mount argent", is retained as a badge.

  Da'ud ibn Ali. Badge. (Fieldless) A horseshoe per pale sable and
  azure.

  D{i'}s Bjarnylr. Name.

  D{o'}mari Gr{i'}msson. Name and device. Sable, a tree blasted and on
  a chief rayonny argent three crescents gules.

      Submitted as "D{o'}mar_r_ Gr_i_msson", the byname was correctly
      changed in kingdom to "Gr_{i'}_msson" to use accents
      consistently throughout the entire name. However, the given name
      _D{o'}marr_ is a legendary name, not used by normal humans.
      Therefore, we have changed the given name to the submitter's
      preferred spelling "D{o'}mar_i_", found in _Nordiskt
      runnamnslexikon_.

  Elena verch Rhys. Name.

  Elizabeth de Belcaire. Device. Per chevron Or and purpure, two
  butterflies purpure.

  Emma the Bold. Device. Azure, a domestic cat statant gardant, on a
  chief Or two roses proper.

  Gillian Winter. Name.

      The submitter may wish to know that this exact name is found in
      the FamilySearch Historical Records, dated to 1624, so it is an
      excellent late period English name!

  Gisela Eger. Name and device. Quarterly azure and vert, an owl and
  on a chief argent four roses gules.

  Gwyneth fitz-Rolf. Device change. Argent, a polypus sable between
  three mullets azure.

  Isabella Cavalieri. Name and device. Per pale wavy azure and vert, a
  sea-horse contourny argent and a horse rampant Or, in base a rose
  argent.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 16th century Venice.
      The given name was documented to 16th century Venice in the
      Letter of Intent, and the occupational term _Cavalieri_
      ("silkwoman") is found in 16th century Vicenza in Domenico
      Bortolan's _Vocabolario del Dialetto Antico Vicentino (Dal
      Secolo XIV a tutto il Secolo XVI)_
      (http://archive.org/details/vocabolariodeldi00bortuoft). As both
      elements are found in or near Venice in the 16th century, this
      name appears to meet this request.

  Janeke Vi{dh}arsson. Name and device. Argent, a raven rising sable
  and a chief triangular azure.

  Liadain Crosthwayt. Name and device. Per fess azure and sable
  mullety of six points Or, a fess wavy argent and in chief three
  plates.

      _Liadain_ is found in _The Book of Leinster_, c.1160, as a
      variant of the name _Liadan_. _L{i'}adan_ is also the name of an
      Irish saint.

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

  Lochlainn Bjornulfsson. Name change from Kors Damiszoon.

      This name combines a Middle Irish Gaelic given name and an Old
      Norse byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C
      of SENA.

      The submitter's previous name, _Kors Damiszoon_, is retained as
      an alternate name.

  Margot de Janua. Name and device. Per pale sable and argent, a
  domestic cat sejant gules.

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

  Michael MacAlpine. Transfer of device to Seth MacAlpine. Sable, a
  dragon rampant argent between three ermine spots Or.

  Seth MacAlpine. Acceptance of transfer of device from Michael
  MacAlpine. Sable, a dragon rampant argent between three ermine spots
  Or.

      His previous device, "Argent, a griffin sejant sable, on a chief
      gules a crescent Or", is retained as a badge.

  {U'}lfarr inn rammi. Name and device. Quarterly gules and sable, on
  a cross argent a wolf's head cabossed sable.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the cross, and thus the
      wolf's head, slightly smaller.

**** ANSTEORRA returns ****

  Sofia Patrekieva. Device. Or, a raven rising sable maintaining an
  annulet argent, on a chief gules a sun Or.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Because of its lack of contrast, small size and significant
      overlap by the raven's foot, the maintained ring loses
      identifiability. This issue was not raised at the time of the
      previous return in 2014 because at that time maintained charges
      had more latitude with regard to contrast and identifiability.
      However, the precedent of August 2015, which allows maintained
      charges to contribute for difference also requires that
      maintained charges have to be identifiable and have good
      contrast or else be cause for return.

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

**** ARTEMISIA returns ****

  Deryck of Annesley. Device. Quarterly Or and azure estencely Or, in
  bend sinister two boar's heads erased sable.

      This device is returned for presumption, for having the
      appearance of marshalling.

      SENA section A6F2c states _"When different sections of the field
      contain different types of charges, it creates the appearance of
      marshalling."_

      This is the situation for this submission. We have two of the
      quarters with a boar's head on an Or field and the two other
      quarters with Or estencelly on an azure field, giving the
      appearance of the quartering of these two arms.

      We also remind heralds and submitters that appeals should have
      some sort of justification. The Administrative Handbook clearly
      states "_All appeals should be supported by new documentation,
      other proof that the original submission was returned in error
      or compelling evidence that the submission was not properly
      considered at the time of return."_

  Sneferu sa Djedi mewetif Merit. Badge. Purpure grillage of bamboo
  staves Or, a lynx's face argent.

      This badge is returned for running afoul of SENA A2A which
      states "On first registration of any particular element,
      documentation must be presented that the element and its
      depiction may be registered. This means presenting evidence that
      the element is eligible to be registered and that the specific
      depiction is attested or is otherwise compatible with period
      style." No documentation was provided by the submitter or during
      commentary indicating that a grillage made of something other
      than metal (the material, not the tincture) was a registerable
      charge.

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

**** ATENVELDT returns ****

  Ambrose the Gutless. Device. Sable, a hand argent between in chief
  two bees Or.

      This device is returned for presumption with the arms of
      Isengard: _Sable, a hand argent_. The hand appears to be a
      primary charge as it crosses the fess line. Thus there is only
      one DC for adding the secondary charges in chief. Drawn properly
      as coprimary charges, with two bees Or and a hand argent of
      similar visual weight (with the hand staying below the fess
      line), the present presumption issue would not exist.

  Garrett Seaburn. Device. Per bend Or four piles inverted issuant
  from chief azure and barry wavy argent and azure, a bend vert.

      Although blazoned on the Letter of Intent as _Per bend Or four
      piles inverted issuant from chief azure and barry wavy argent
      and azure, a bend vert_, this device is actually more accurately
      described as _Per bend gyronny from chief Or and azure and barry
      wavy argent and azure, a bend vert_. Therefore, it conflicts
      with the device of {U'}na ingenue Ragnaill: _Checky sable and
      argent, a bend vert_. There is only one DC for changing the
      field.

  Ignacio Diaz de Castile. Device. Pean, on a tyger rampant Or a
  crescent gules, a bordure embattled Or crusilly Santiago gules.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the gules charges on the
      bordure.

      On resubmission, please advise the submitter to draw fewer and
      larger ermine spots.

      The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of Adam
      Carlos Diaz de Castile: _Pean, a tyger rampant within a bordure
      embattled Or charged with six crosses of Santiago gules_.

  in base to a crescent pendant sable.

      Commenters confused this design with a vol or a massacre.

**** EALDORMERE returns ****

  {AE}thelbert of Whitstone Isle. Device. Or, a sparrowhawk striking
  gules and in canton an awl, point to base sable handled of wood
  proper.

      This device is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which states
      that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms". The awl
      used here does not match the shapes that have been documented so
      far and no documentation was provided. The documented shapes are
      illustrated in the 08/2005 LoAR
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2005/08/05-08pics.doc)

      On resubmission please advise the submitter to be careful about
      the tinctures used (the "gules" appeared as tenn{e'}) and that
      the shield fits the approved form. Each of these issues is also
      grounds for return.

  F{a'}el{a'}n Ruadh ua Aodha. Badge. Per pale argent and Or, in pale
  a chevron raguly and a foi counterchanged sable and vert.

      This badge is returned for violating the following precedent:

           In this submission the chevron inverted and the tree
           can only be interpreted as co-primary charges, as they
           are of approximately equal visual weight and neither
           occupies the center of the shield. This combination of
           ordinary with non-ordinary charge in a single charge
           group produces an unbalanced design. Without period
           evidence for such a design, it is not registerable.
           [Issobell nic Gilbert, April 2005, R-Caid]

      Which is confirmed by SENA A3D2:

           Mixing Ordinaries and Other Charges: While charge
           groups may have different types of charges, charge
           groups consist of either identical ordinaries or
           complex charges. Thus, a single charge group may not
           mix ordinaries with non-ordinaries or mix two types of
           ordinaries.

      The same issue applies here - the chevron and the foi can only
      be interpreted as co-primary charges.

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

**** EAST returns ****

**** LOCHAC returns ****

  Eleonora Rose. Device. Per chevron sable and gules, between two
  chevronels abased seven square weaver's tablets in chevron argent.

      Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as _a chevron gules
      fimbriated_, the chevron looks like it is actually the field,
      seen between two chevronels. SENA A3C states: "_As central
      ordinaries with two ends which are voided would give the
      unmistakable appearance of being multiple ordinaries, they may
      not be voided._" As this cannot be a chevron voided, this is two
      chevronels. As they are both on the gules portion of the field
      they are thus incorrectly placed on the field and this device
      must be returned for redraw. This problem could be avoided if
      the chevron did not share a tincture with the field.

  Elizabeth Rowe. Device. Azure, a camelopard statant Or spotted sable
  maintaining in its dexter foreleg a quill pen palewise sable, an
  orle argent.

      This device is returned for contrast issues. Because of the high
      degree of internal detailing the quill pen appears sable and has
      insufficient contrast with the azure field. Starting with the
      August 2015 Cover Letter ruling that gives difference for
      maintained charges, all charges must have good contrast with the
      background on which they lie.

**** MIDDLE returns ****

  Sigr{i'}kr Sig{u'}lfsson. Device. Gyronny of six vert and argent,
  three wolves courant in annulo argent, between the ones in chief a
  Tiwaz rune gules.

      This device is returned for not being reliably blazonable, which
      is a violation of SENA A1C which requires an emblazon to be
      describable in heraldic terms. As depicted, the wolves and rune
      appear to be in the same group but their arrangement is not
      blazonable because of their relative size and similar positions
      in the gyrons. The wolves can be blazoned as in annulo (which is
      a step from period practice) but there is no reliable way to
      blazon the relation of the rune with them.

**** OUTLANDS returns ****

  Franziskus Becker von Schweinfurt. Device. Per fess azure and per
  fess indented gules and argent, in chief two goats combattant argent
  armed Or and in base two baker's peels in saltire gules.

      This device is returned for running afoul of SENA A2A which
      states "On first registration of any particular element,
      documentation must be presented that the element and its
      depiction may be registered. This means presenting evidence that
      the element is eligible to be registered and that the specific
      depiction is attested or is otherwise compatible with period
      style." No documentation was provided by the submitter or during
      commentary indicating that dividing per fess a section of a per
      fess field was a registerable field division. Without evidence
      of such a (double) division, it can't be registered.

      Commenters also indicated that this design ccould also be
      perceived as a per fess field with a charged base indented.
      Designs ambiguous in their interpretation are also grounds for
      return.

  Muirenn ingen U{i'} Thaidc. Device. Azure, a chevron inverted and in
  chief a domestic cat's face argent.

      This device is returned for conflict with the device of
      {O'}l{a'}fr S{ae}lendingr Haraldsson: _Azure, a chevron inverted
      and in chief an increscent argent_. There is only one DC for
      changing the type of the secondary charge.

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

**** TRIMARIS returns ****

  Moyai-Nidun. Badge. Gules, a perruque and on a chief argent a
  grenade sable.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."

      Commenters were unable to recognize the perruque and generally
      assumed that it was an inverted flame. The period examples of
      that charge have a more regular wider lower portion and some
      internal details.

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

**** WEST returns ****

  Bersi E{dh}var{dh}arson. Device change. Per saltire azure and
  argent, a bear couchant contourny sable.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the sable creature, generally
      confusing it with a sheep or cat. The submitter is encouraged to
      look at the image of a bear in the Pictorial Dictionary of
      Heraldry for assistance in drawing the head so that it appears
      more bear-like.

                 - Explicit littera renuntiationum -

***** THE FOLLOWING ITEMS HAVE BEEN PENDED UNTIL THE January 2017
LAUREL MEETING (OR AS NOTED): *****

**** LOCHAC pends ****

  Eleonora Rose. Alternate name Eleanora Rose.

      This name is identical in sound and nearly identical in
      appearance to her primary name, _Eleonora Rose_, registered
      elsewhere on this letter. The question was raised during the
      Pelican decision meeting whether we allow the registration of a
      name that is identical to another name by the same submitter,
      even taking into account that a submitter is automatically
      assumed to grant him or herself permission to conflict.

      Admin Handbook section III.C.3 states, "The owner of any item
      may allow the registration of a specific submission that would
      otherwise conflict, as long as the new item is not identical to
      the registered one." Furthermore, PN3C of SENA states, "For
      identity conflict, any change to appearance and sound is
      sufficient to allow the registration of a personal name with a
      letter of permission to conflict. A submission identical to the
      registered item will not be registered even with permission to
      conflict."

      Thus, under our current conflict standards, we require a change
      in both sound *and* appearance for a submission to be
      non-identical for the purposes of III.C.3 of the Admin Handbook.
      As this alternate name is identical in sound, we ordinarily
      cannot register it. However, it is not clear whether this
      applies to an item submitted by the same individual. Therefore,
      we are pending this item to allow commentary on whether the same
      submitter can register multiple personal or non-personal names
      that are considered to be identical in sound and/or appearance
      under SENA's conflict rules.

      This was item 5 on the Lochac letter of May 31, 2016.

****** Errata ******

***** August 1979 *****

**** CAID ****

  Calafia, Barony of. Badge. Azure, a sea serpent ondoyant-emergent
  sable fimbriated and overall a trident Or.

      When their arms were registered at Heraldicon, it was noted as a
      "change of arms", but no mention was made in the LoAR of their
      previous arms. Instead, there is a note in the Laurel file that
      clearly states "original version to be a badge". There is some
      disagreement over whether or not the laurel-less version of
      their armory was registered in Oct 1971, as suggested by the
      files, or not, as no LoAR was ever issued in Oct 1971, and no
      mention is to be found of the armory until 1973 (when it was
      returned for lacking a laurel wreath). Still, the submission
      paperwork dated June 18, 1979, which was processed at Heraldicon
      in August 1979, clearly lists both variants. We are therefore
      explicitly registering the laurel-less armory as a badge dating
      back to August 1979.
