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

**** AN TIR acceptances ****

  An Tir, Kingdom of. Order name Award of Grace of An Tir and badge.
  (Fieldless) An apple blossom quarterly Or and argent.

      Submitted as the "Award of _Lions_ Grace", this order name is
      not registerable because it does not fit any documented pattern
      for naming orders. No evidence was presented to support the
      pattern of [saint's name] + [virtue]. All of the examples from
      "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new) combine saint's names
      with physical objects, rather than abstract virtues.

      The Letter of Intent argued that, because both _Lions_ and
      _Grace_ are attested name elements, this name should be
      registerable it is based on the full name of a saint. However,
      that pattern is not registerable. The July 2016 Cover Letter
      states: "We will not register orders named after the full names
      of saints when the surnames are inherited forms, unless
      documentation is found to show that this pattern follows period
      practice." No such documentation was provided. It also was
      argued that this order could be named after a saint with a
      double given name. However, no evidence was presented for period
      saints with double given names or for orders being named after
      them.

      With the permission of the Crown of An Tir, we have changed this
      name to "Award of Grace _of An Tir_" for registration. In this
      form, the order name fits the pattern of names based on abstract
      virtues, found in "Medieval Secular Order Names."

  Angelika al-Mediniya. Name.

      Submitted as "Angeli_c_a al-M_a_diniya_h_", the submitter stated
      that she preferred the spelling "Angelika al-Medinah" if
      documentable. In commentary, Ursula Palimpsest was able to
      document "Angeli_k_a" as the female form of _Angelikos_, the
      name of a 16th century Greek man
      (http://www.academia.edu/3624660/_Byzantium_and_the_Rebirth_of_Art_and_Learning_in_Italy_and_France_).
      In addition, Tala al-Zahra documented "al-M_e_diniya_" as a
      valid transliteration of the documented Arabic "al-Madiniyah".
      We therefore have changed the name to give the submitter as
      close as possible to her requested spelling.

      This names combines Greek and Arabic, a lingual mix permitted by
      Appendix C.

  Anna Melyes. Name and device. Per saltire sable and gules, a chevron
  between two mullets argent.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "12-15th Century
      Hungarian." This name is authentic for a 14th-16th century
      Hungarian woman whose name is recorded in a Latin context.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the chevron slightly higher
      on the field.

  Anneke von Frankenstein. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Anneke von Frankenstein. Badge. Per pale argent and purpure, in
  cross four lozenges counterchanged.

  Aoife inghean Aonghusa. Name.

      Nice 13th century Gaelic name!

  Bledyn Drwg de Caerdydd. Name.

  Brynhildr Bjarnardottir. Name.

  Christopher Stanley. Badge. Gules, three scarpes couped Or.

  Christopher Stanley. Badge. Or, three scarpes couped gules.

  Ciar ingen Donngaile. Name change from holding name Karen of
  Aquaterra and device change. Azure semy of escarbuncles argent, an
  ounce couchant Or and in base three chevronels braced argent.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Early Irish - up to
      1200." Although this name is a registerable Irish name, it is
      not authentic because the name elements did not overlap in time.
      _Ciar_ is the name of a 7th century Irish saint, while the
      byname is based on the given name _Donngal_, which does not
      appear in Gaelic records prior to the 8th century.

      The submitter's old device, "Per pale azure and vert, a
      wolfhound salient and on a chief Or three roses proper", is
      retained as a badge.

  Corvus Verris. Name.

      Originally submitted as "Corv_o_ Ve_ru_s", the byname was
      changed at Kingdom to "Ver_ri_s". Unfortunately, no
      documentation was provided (and none was found in commentary)
      showing that _Corvo_ was a period name. However, as documented
      in the Letter of Intent, the related name "Corv_us_" was found
      in Italy in the 11th century, which is temporally compatible
      with the documented _Verris_. As the submitter allowed all
      changes, we have changed the given name to a documented form for
      registration.

  Cuil{e'}n Albriktsson. Device. Quarterly sable and Or, a crescent
  between three mullets counterchanged.

  Eberhardt Heinrichssohn. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Submitted as "Eberhardt Heinrich_s_ohn", the documented pattern
      for forming German names using _-sohn_ uses the genitive
      (possessive) form of the father's name. Therefore, we have
      changed this name to "Heinrich_ss_ohn" for registration.

  Ekaterina Kazimirova. Name and device. Azure, a horse's head erased
  contourny and on a chief embattled Or two peacock feathers in
  saltire vert.

      The submitter had originally requested "Ekaterina Kazimirov_
      _von Salza_", which combined two Russian name elements with a
      German locative byname. This name was correctly changed at
      Kingdom to "Ekaterina Kazimirov_a_" because: (1) the patronymic
      had to be put in the correct form for a woman; and (2) Russian
      (East Slavic) and German cannot be combined under Appendix C.

      However, German can be combined with the North Slavic language
      group, which includes Polish, Czech, Slovak, etc. In commentary,
      ffride Krae Glas documented a Polish/German form of the name:
      "Katerina Kazimirowa von Saltza". If the submitter would prefer
      this form, she may make a request for reconsideration.

  Fiona ingen Conchobair. Name and device. Or, a wolfhound rampant
  contourny gules within an orle of holly sprigs leaves to center
  proper.

      "Fiona" is the submitter's legal given name.

      Technically, "Conchobair" should be lenited after "ingen".
      However, examples from the various Irish Annals provided by
      Brian Rocket show that lenition was frequently ignored in
      practice even when required by standard Gaelic grammar.
      Therefore, we are leaving the father's name unlenited to match
      instances found in the Annals.

      Holly sprigs proper are leaved vert and fructed gules.

  Fiona ingen Conchobair. Alternate name Fiona ni Conor.

      _Fiona_ is the submitter's legal given name.

  Francis Darcy. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 16th century English.
      This request was not summarized on the Letter of Intent.
      Fortunately, attendees at the Pelican decision meeting provided
      enough information about authenticity that we did not need to
      pend this name.

      This name is authentic for 16th century England, as both
      elements of the name are fairly common during that era. In fact,
      an Englishman named "Francis Darcy" was knighted in 1591.

  Guencenedl ben Madudain. Device. Sable, a wolfhound's head erased
  contourny Or, a bordure quarterly gules and argent.

  Gunnbj{o,}rn rau{dh}skeggr. Name.

  James Irvein of Lions Gate. Badge. (Fieldless) A cross of Santiago
  within and conjoined to a masculyn gules.

  Kateline MacFarlane. Alternate name Konishi Tsukiko.

  Margarete Hildebrand. Name.

      Nice 16th century German name!

  Michael Leland. Device. Sable, on a chevron purpure fimbriated
  between two sinister hands in benediction and a shepherd's crook,
  three estoiles of eight rays argent.

  Quillemette de Calemoutier. Name.

  Ren{e'}e du bois d'Ambre. Device change. Sable semy of hares salient
  contourny, a decrescent moon argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the rabbits more evenly
      spaced on the field.

      The submitter's old device, "Per pale sable and argent, two
      spears in saltire surmounted by a wolf's head cabossed within a
      bordure embattled, all counterchanged", is retained as a badge.

  Rhieinwylydd verch Einion Llanaelhaearn. Blanket permission to
  conflict with badge. Argent, on a pale endorsed between in chief two
  lozenges sable, in pale a lozenge and a lion's face argent.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict for any armory that
      is at least one countable step (DC) from her badge.

  Rhieinwylydd verch Einion Llanaelhaearn. Blanket permission to
  conflict with device. Argent, three lion's heads cabossed sable.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict for any armory that
      is at least one countable step (DC) from her device.

  Rhieinwylydd verch Einion Llanaelhaearn. Blanket permission to
  conflict with badge. Purpure semy-de-lys, a greyhound couchant Or.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict for any armory that
      is at least one countable step (DC) from her badge.

  Rhieinwylydd verch Einion Llanaelhaearn. Blanket permission to
  conflict with badge. Sable, an elephant statant maintaining on its
  back a tower, on a bordure argent the words 'aut age aut tace'
  sable.

      The submitter grants permission to conflict for any armory that
      is at least one countable step (DC) from her badge.

  Rhieinwylydd verch Einion Llanaelhaearn. Heraldic will.

      Upon her death, Rhieinwylydd leaves any and all names and armory
      registered to her to Galeran Chanterel. If Galeran predeceases
      Rhieinwylydd, then her names and armory shall be released.

  Septimus Huscarlessone. Name.

  Sigmund Faust. Device. Gules, on a chevron Or between two ounces
  combattant and a sword argent three crosses crosslet fitchy palewise
  azure.

  Sigri{dh}r Eirikskona. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Spike Dirk Zoetaert. Badge. Vert, three wedges of cheese Or.

  Zahra bint al-Rammah. Alternate name Sign{y'} Refsd{o'}ttir.

      The submitter obtained permission to conflict from "Au{dh}ny
      Refsd{o'}ttir". This permission was not necessary. These two
      names do not conflict under PN3C2 because there is a substantial
      change to the first syllable of the given name: "Sig-" has no
      sounds or letters in common with "Au{dh}-".

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

**** ANSTEORRA acceptances ****

  Adelaide Dewy. Device. Sable, in cross two arrows with points to
  chief and dexter within an annulet argent.

  Alienor de Loucelles. Name.

      Submitted as "Ali_{e'}_nor de Loucelles", no evidence was
      provided for a period instance of this name using the acute
      accent. Therefore, we have removed the accent for registration.

      "de Loucelles" is the registered byname of the submitter's
      father.

  Anastasiia Dmitrieva Sokolova. Badge. Or, four mullets two and two
  gules.

  Annais Eleanor de Montgomerie. Alternate name Anne Hardi.

      Nice late 16th century English name!

  Antonia Aureliana. Name and device. Azure, a fess Or between four
  billets and a cinquefoil argent.

      Nice Imperial-era Roman name!

  Balthasar Silvano. Name and device. Sable, a cross formy fitchy and
  on a chief embattled argent three acorns gules.

      "Caius Balthazar Silvano", whose name appears elsewhere on this
      letter, and the submitter provided reciprocal permissions to
      claim a relationship.

  Bulvyn Gunderson. Name and device. Per pale Or and vert, a bull
  passant sable and a chief raguly gules.

  Ceallach mac Domhnaill. Name and device. Argent, three peacocks in
  their pride proper.

      Nice 12th and 13th century Gaelic name!

  Chemin Noir, Canton of. Badge for the populace. Or, on a pale sable
  a mullet of five greater and five lesser points Or.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a mullet of
      five greater and five lesser points.

  Conall Ramsay. Name and device. Per bend sinister sable and azure,
  in pale three sea-horses naiant argent.

      This name combines a Gaelic given name with a Scots surname, a
      lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

  Eadric Wolf. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and sable, a
  bend sinister between two wolf's heads couped counterchanged.

  Elric de Netterville. Name.

      Appearing on the Letter of Intent as _Elric Netterville_, the
      submitter requested "Elric _de_ Netterville", if that form could
      be documented. _Netterville_ is reasonable variant spelling of
      _Netteruille_, an Anglicized Irish place name documented to the
      late 13th century on p. 113 of _Calendar of the Justiciary
      Rolls: Or, Proceedings in the Court of the Justiciar of Ireland,
      Volume 1_ (https://archive.org/details/calendarofjustic01irel).
      Therefore, "de Netterville" is a plausible marked form for the
      byname. We have changed the name to meet the submitter's
      request.

  Elsie Hooper. Name and device. Purpure, on a chevron inverted argent
  four lilies palewise purpure, overall a rapier Or.

      Nice late 16th century English name!

  Eva Collette Devereaux. Name.

      Submitted as "Eva Collette Dever_eu_x", the submitter requested
      the spelling "Dever_eau_x" if it could be documented. ffride
      Krae Glas was able to document the requested spelling to
      1377-1399 in the _Kent Feet of Fines Richard II (1377-1399)_.
      Based on this documentation, we have changed the byname to her
      requested spelling.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "French." However, the
      Letter of Intent also stated that "[s]he also prefers the
      documentation to be all in French, if possible, but getting this
      name is most important." This name is entirely English, but
      provides the spelling she requested, and thus meets her
      preferences.

  Finnr Jurgensson. Name.

  Francesca di Lucca. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Herold von Wolfratshausen. Name and device. Per bend gules and
  lozengy bendwise sinister gules and argent, on a bend Or four
  mullets of six points azure.

      Nice 14th century German name!

  Hywel Goch Penbras. Device change. Gules, a bend sinister argent,
  overall a talbot rampant regardant Or.

      The submitter's old device, "Gules, two escallops argent and a
      fleece Or", is released.

  Jamison de Appleby. Name.

      "Jamison" was documented as the submitter's legal given name.
      However, the submitter does not need to rely on the legal name
      allowance because "Jamison" can also be found as an English
      surname dated to 1589 in the FamilySearch Historical Records.
      Such surnames can be used as given names.

  Kolfinna Egilsd{o'}ttir. Name and device. Per bend sinister vert and
  sable, in bend three plates.

      Nice 9-10th century Icelandic name!

  Kolfinna Egilsd{o'}ttir. Badge. Argent, a dunghill cock within nine
  mullets in annulo sable.

  Konstantia Marinianou. Name and device. Azure, a duck naiant argent
  within a rosary, a bordure Or.

  Lauren Augustin. Name.

  Lynette Turner. Name.

      "Lynette" is the submitter's legal given name. However, the
      submitter did not need to rely on the legal name allowance, as
      we have evidence of "Linette" as a period given name (likely of
      French origin) in Belgium. We have evidence that, in French as
      in English, _i_ and _y_ were used interchangeably. Therefore,
      the evidence of a period French _Linette_ supports the submitted
      spelling>.

  M{a'}ni {A'}lfsson. Name.

      Nice 9-10th century Icelandic name!

  Marita B{o/}e. Device. Per chevron argent and azure, an increscent
  and a decrescent purpure and an owl argent.

  Mavis Campbell. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Nice early 16th century Scots name!

  Mor inghean Ricairt. Name.

      Nice Gaelic name for the 13th - 14th centuries!

  Ossana van der Linden. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      This name combines a German given name and a Dutch byname, a
      lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

  Robin of Gilwell. Heraldic title Rapier Herald.

      The submitter has permission from the Barony of Dreiburgen to
      conflict with the household name _Dreiburgen School of Rapier_.

      By longstanding precedent, this title does not conflict with
      generic identifiers such as _Rapier Champion_ because generic
      identifiers "are not actually registered items. Generic
      identifiers are 'functional, generic, and thus not held to
      conflict standards.'" [January 1993 Cover Letter] For the same
      reason, registration of this title will not preclude groups from
      using _Rapier Champion_ as a generic identifier for a badge.

  Rwsa Georgette. Name.

      _Georgette_ is the submitter's legal given name.

      Appearing on the Letter of Intent as "R_{o'}z_sa Georgette", the
      name was not registerable in this form because _R{o'}zsa_ is a
      post-period spelling. Although she initially allowed no changes,
      the submitter consented to changing the byname to the documented
      period spelling "R_w_sa", found in "Hungarian Names 101" by
      Walraven van Nijmegen
      (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/magyarnames1012.html), for
      registration. Because "Rwsa" is a Hungarian byname, it may be
      used before the given name.

  Sara Penrose. Heraldic title White Heron Herald.

  Sarah Rois Netterville. Name.

      "Netterville" is the submitter's legal surname. However, the
      submitter does not need to rely on the Legal Name Allowance
      because _Netterville_ is also a reasonable variant spelling of
      _Netteruille_, an Anglicized Irish place name documented to the
      late 13th century on p. 113 of _Calendar of the Justiciary
      Rolls: Or, Proceedings in the Court of the Justiciar of Ireland,
      Volume 1_ (https://archive.org/details/calendarofjustic01irel).

  Sean mac Daniel. Name and device. Barry engrailed azure and argent,
  on a chevron sable three sea-horses palewise Or.

      Nice name in Gaelic for much of our period, as well as in
      Anglicized Irish for the 16th century!

  Seneca of Raven's Fort. Name and device. Sable, an owl affronty
  argent maintaining an arrow fesswise reversed Or between flaunches
  argent each charged with a flame gules.

      _Raven's Fort_ is the registered name of an SCA branch.

  Simon Gof. Name and device. Or, a smith's hammer proper its haft
  maintaining an entwined vine vert, a bordure gules.

  Simon Gof. Badge. (Fieldless) A smith's hammer proper its haft
  maintaining an entwined vine vert.

  Sonja Ry{zv}aja. Badge. (Fieldless) On a rose sable barbed and
  seeded vert, a letter S argent.

      This badge does not conflict with the badge of the March of the
      Black Rose: _(Fieldless) A rose sable, barbed and charged with
      the letters "B" and "R" argent_. There is a DC for fieldlessness
      and another DC for changing the number of tertiary charges.

  Stephan Draco. Name.

      This name combines a German given name and an Italian surname, a
      lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

  Stephen Paul Blakeley. Device. Per saltire sable and argent, in pale
  two mullets and in fess an increscent and a decrescent
  counterchanged.

  Thomas de Groet. Badge. (Fieldless) A baton sinister counter-compony
  gules and argent.

  {TH}orbj{o,}rn or{dh}lokarr. Name and device. Argent, on a bend
  between two feathers bendwise sable a feather argent.

      The given name was submitted as "{TH}orbj_{o^}_rn". This
      spelling incorrectly uses an o-circumflex ({o^}) to represent
      the character o-ogonek ({o,}). We have corrected the name to
      "{TH}orbj_{o,}_rn" for registration.

      The submitter requested authenticity for Old Norse. This name is
      authentic for Iceland in the 9-11th centuries, and thus meets
      the submitter's request.

      Please advise the submitter to have each of the sable feathers
      better centered in their section of the field.

  Titus Aurelius Marcianus. Name and device. Sable, a bend sinister
  azure fimbriated argent and in canton a mullet Or.

      Nice Roman name for the middle of the first century B.C.E.
      through the fourth century C.E.!

      Please advise the submitter to draw the fimbriation slightly
      narrower.

  Toryn Seven Stiches. Device. Bendy sinister sable and argent, a
  bordure gules semy of lozenges argent.

      Nice device!

  Virupakshapura Vidya. Name and device. Argent, an elephant passant
  vert armed Or.

      Nice device!

  Wyldewode, Canton of. Branch name (see RETURNS for device).

      The canton has permission to conflict from the _Barony of
      Wyewood_.

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

**** ARTEMISIA acceptances ****

  Arabella de Rebelh. Name and device. Azure, on a dance argent three
  thistles proper.

      This name combines an English given name with a French byname, a
      lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

  Tigernach Bard. Name.

      This name combines a Gaelic given name with an English surname,
      a lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

      The submitter may be interested to know that an entirely Middle
      Gaelic form of the name would be "Tigernach _in_ Bard" or
      "Tigernach _an_ Bard". If the submitter would prefer one of
      these forms, he may make a request for reconsideration.

  Violetta Veneziana. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Submitted as "Violetta _de_ Veneziana", the use of _de_ in this
      construction is improper because _Veneziana_ is an adjectival
      form meaning "woman from Venice," not a stand-alone place name.
      With the submitter's permission we have dropped _de_ for
      registration.

  Violetta Veneziana. Badge. (Fieldless) A hippopotamus statant
  contourny argent.

      This badge does not conflict with the badge of Giuliana
      Salviati: _(Fieldless) A boar passant to sinister argent_. There
      is a DC for fieldlessness and at least another DC for the
      difference between a hippopotamus and a boar.

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

  Vladislav Korsakov. Device. Argent, two chevronels braced gules,
  overall a fox rampant azure marked argent maintaining a sheaf of
  arrows inverted sable.

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

**** ATENVELDT acceptances ****

  Alexandra Starling of Ravenspurn. Device. Purpure, a chevron
  inverted of chain Or conjoined at the point to a lighthouse Or
  flammant gules.

  Andrassy Magyri of the Lowara. Reblazon of device. Pean, a chevron
  gules and overall a tyger sejant Or.

      Blazoned when registered in October 1976 as _Sable ermined Or, a
      chevron gules, overall a tyger sejant, Or, langued and orbed
      gules_, we are changing the blazon to use more standard tincture
      terminology.

  Magnus inn hugpru{dh}i Ulfsson. Name and device. Or, a boar statant
  sable and on a chief rayonny gules a tau-rho Or.

      Submitted as "Magnus inn hugpr_{u'}_{dh}i Ulfsson", accents need
      to be used (or omitted) consistently in Old Norse names. As the
      submitter did not use the accents in the given name or patronym,
      we have removed the accent from _hugpru{dh}i_ for registration.

      This is the defining instance of the tau-rho in Society
      heraldry. This staurogram is constructed out of the Greek
      letters tau and rho. It dates as a written symbol to the 4th
      century and was still in use as a decorative motif in the 11th
      century. It is as acceptable in the Society as the chi-rho, a
      similarly constructed symbol.

  Serena the Lavendere. Device change (see RETURNS for name). Per
  saltire purpure and argent, in fess two feathers sable and issuant
  from base a demi-sun Or.

      The submitter's old device, "Per pale purpure and argent, a
      butterfly counterchanged", is retained as a badge.

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

**** ATLANTIA acceptances ****

  Aldreda of Lochmere. Name.

      "Lochmere" is the registered name of an SCA branch.

  Andreas zum Schwarzwald. Name and device. Lozengy gules and Or, an
  owl sable and on a chief azure a hexagonal gemstone Or between two
  hexagonal gemstones argent.

  Ania Stal. Name.

  Arnoddr {i'} {O,}ngulseyju. Name.

  Brighid Dragon Songe. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and
  azure, a decrescent counterchanged.

      In this instance, _Brighid_ was documented as an interpolated
      English spelling based on multiple variant documented forms.
      _Brighid_ is also an Early Modern Gaelic saint's name, and thus
      can be combined with English bynames under Appendix C.

  Caius Balthazar Silvano. Name and device. Argent, a tree blasted and
  eradicated sable between three acorns, a bordure embattled gules.

      "Balthasar Silvano", whose name appears elsewhere on this
      letter, and the submitter provided reciprocal permissions to

  Amira bint Zakariya'. Name and device. Per pale embowed

  slipped and leaved vert and a dragon sable.

      Commenters wondered whether this design presented a Unity of
      Orientation issue. Repeated precedent states that, in the case
      of slipped roses, we ignore the orientation of the slip and thus
      this is not an issue.

  Andrew Baird. Badge. (Fieldless) A chi-rho within and conjoined to a
  mascle Or.

  Briana MacCabe. Badge. (Fieldless) A candle bendy Or and purpure lit

      Annals" by Mari ingen Brian meic Donnchada
      (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/DubEssa.shtml).

  Francisco Rodrigo de Gomez y Sandoval. Name and device. Or, a bend
  engouled of two boars' heads sable between two fleurs-de-lys azure.

      The submitter requested authenticity for an unspecified time
      period and language/culture. All of the name elements and the
      name pattern are documented to the 16th century in Spanish.
      However, we are aware of only one example of the pattern _de
      patronymic y locative_ in 16th century Spanish. A double byname
      of this kind was more likely to have been rendered as _Gomez de
      Sandoval_. If the submitter prefers this form of the byname, he
      may submit a request for reconsideration.

  Furia Tertia. Name change from Tik-Astrid Olafsdottir.

      Nice Imperial Roman name!

      The submitter's prior name, "Tik-Astrid Olafsdottir", is

  Katherene de la Huerta. Name and device. Argent, three scorpions
  gules.

      "Katherene" is the submitter's legal given name.

      Nice device!

  Kiena the Blue. Name change from Keina le Bleu.

      The byname "the Blue" is the lingua Anglica form of the Middle
      English descriptive byname _le Bleu_.

      The submitter's prior name, "Keina le Bleu", is released.

  chalice and in chief a key fesswise reversed argent.

  Livia Silvana. Name and device. Per bend azure and argent, a cross
  gurgit{e'}e argent and three mullets purpure.

      Nice Imperial Roman name!

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a cross
      gurgit{e'}e.

  L{u'}ta Gjallandad{o'}ttir. Name and device. Purpure, a crescent
  pendant argent between a pair of deer's attires palewise Or.

      The byname was submitted as "Gjalland_is_d{o'}ttir", based on
      the male given name _Gjallandi_. However, this spelling used the
      incorrect genitive form of the father's name. The correct
      genitive form is _Gjallanda_, making the correct patronymic
      "Gjalland_a_d{o'}ttir". As the submitter allows all changes, we
      have corrected the patronymic for registration.

  Lyle Magnusson. Name.

  Magdalena Zapff. Name.

      Nice late 16th century German name!

  Manfred Sasul. Name and device. Purpure, an increscent moon argent

      Nice 16th century Norwegian name!

      Nice Imperial Roman name!

      Please advise the submitter to draw the wings so they do not
      overlap the body.

  Roger Fitzlyon. Reblazon of device. Per pall inverted azure, vert,
  and sable, a tricorporate lion argent.

      Blazoned when registered in August 1979 as _Tierced in point,
      azure, vert, and sable, a tricorporate lion argent_, we have
      since adopted the use of the term _Per pall inverted_ for this
      field.

  Ron{a'}n Mac Con{a'}in. Name and device. Per chevron embattled azure
  and argent, two sea-wolves respectant and a tree eradicated proper.

      Submitted as "Ron{a'}n Mac Con_{a'}_n", the submitted form does
      not use the correct grammar for the byname. Gaelic grammar
      requires the father's name to be in the genitive (possessive)
      form when used in a patronym. To correct this, we have changed
      the byname to "Mac Con_{a'}i_n" for registration.

      Nice 8th century Gaelic name!

  Sabina Heidwolf. Name.

      Nice 16th century German name!

  Sayeua Bunewell. Name and device. Vert, in pale a bee proper and a
  mortar and pestle Or.

      Nice early 14th century English name!

  Skjaldv{o,}r in stranga. Name.

      Submitted as "Skjaldv{o,}r in_n_ strang_i_", the byname needs to
      be put in the feminine form to match the gender of the given
      name. We have changed the byname to "in_ strang_a_" for
      registration.

  Steina Hrafnsdottir. Name.

  Subudei of Nordwache. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for
  name). Purpure, an owl displayed and on a chief argent an arrow
  reversed purpure.

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

      Submitted under the name "Subudei Sukeken".

  Tabitha the Quiet. Name and device. Azure, on a bend invected argent
  between an increscent Or and an owl argent three mullets of eight
  points sable.

      The byname "the Quiet" is the lingua Anglica form of the Middle
      English byname "le Stile".

  Valko of Calafia. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name).
  Pily bendy argent and gules, a wolf's head cabossed and a bordure
  sable.

      Submitted under the name "Valko Chilikov".

  Waruuic of Silvercreek. Name and device. Azure, a rabbit's head
  cabossed and a bordure argent.

      The submitter requested authenticity for an unspecified time
      period. While it is registerable, this name is not authentic
      because the given name is Old English and the byname is
      constructed from Middle English and Early Modern English
      examples.

  Wilhelm Wanz. Name and device. Argent, a chevron inverted azure and
  in chief a beetle sable.

      In commentary, ffride Krae Glas was able to document both name
      elements in the FamilySearch Historical Records to 1572 in
      W{u:}rttemberg, Germany, making this an excellent German name!

  Wolfhelm Sturmere. Name and device. Per pale sable and Or, two owls
  addorsed counterchanged.

  Wulfrun of Havehunte. Name and device. Barry wavy argent and vert, a
  sea-wolf maintaining a trident Or.

      Submitted as "Wulfrun_e_ of Havehunte", "Wulfrun_e_" is the
      genitive (possessive) form, rather than the required nominative
      (base) form. We have changed the given name to the correct
      nominative form, "Wulfrun_", for registration.

  Zosime Pompeiana. Household name Oikos Ataraxou (see RETURNS for
  badge).

      Submitted as "Oikos Atarax_ia_", the term "ataraxia" was
      documented as an ancient Greek word for "tranquility."
      Unfortunately, we have no evidence for Greek households named
      using abstract nouns. However, we do have evidence of households
      named after persons. Ursula Green Staff documented the male name
      _Ataraxos_ in the _Lexicon of Greek Personal Names (LGPN)_.
      Based on this documentation, and because the submitter allowed
      all changes, we have registered the household name as "Oikos
      Atarax_ou_", a form nearly identical to what was submitted.

  Zosime Pompeiana. Badge. (Fieldless) A sprig of olive fesswise
  reversed fructed vert.

**** CALONTIR acceptances ****

  Ana Elena de Castil. Device. Per chevron throughout sable and gules,
  two eagles and a cross of Santiago Or.

      The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of
      Alfarr Utherson: _Per chevron sable and gules, two portcullises
      and a cross gurgity Or_.

  Aranwen verch Catuethen. Name.

      Submitted as "Aranwen _f_erch Ca_dw_ethen", the documentation
      did not support the byname as submitted. The documented spelling
      of the father's name is "Ca_tu_ethen", a 9th century Welsh form.

      Combining the Early Modern Welsh _ferch_ with the Old Welsh
      _Catuethen_ violates PN1B1 of SENA by using two different
      languages in the same name phrase. As the submitter permitted
      all changes, we have corrected the byname for registration to
      use the Old Welsh marker _verch_.

  Cristabell Rose Alwin. Name and device. Azure, a bear rampant Or
  atop a trimount vert and in chief three roses Or.

      This design was well documented as an Individually Attested
      Pattern in late period Italian heraldry. The submitter provided
      more than sufficient evidence of the use of green trimounts on
      blue background as well as the concurrent use of well
      contrasting bears and roses.

  Jon Chesey. Name and device. Per fess embowed azure mullety Or and

      "Company of Archers" is a generic identifier.

  Helena Katerina Roero. Name change from Caterucia Mountague and
  device change. Argent, a winged domestic cat sejant sable
  maintaining a Catherine's wheel gules, a mountain of three peaks
  vert.

      This name combines Italian and French elements, a lingual mix
      permitted by Appendix C. The submitter may be interested to know
      that a fully Italian form would be _Helena Caterina Roero_. If
      she prefers this form, she may make a request for
      reconsideration.

      The submitter's prior name, _Caterucia Mountague_, is released.

      The submitter's old device, "Vert, on a fess between three roses
      argent seeded Or and a needle bendwise argent threaded Or a
      domestic cat couchant sable", is released.

  Martin Bildner. Badge. Gules, three krummhorns fretted in triangle

  Meleshka of Bryniau Tywynnog. Holding name and device (see RETURNS
  for name). Or, a bear rampant vert maintaining a butterfly azure.

      Submitted under the name "Meleshka Vidarovaia".

  Meredyth Llwellyn. Name and device. Per fess argent and vert, three
  thistles proper and a rose argent.

      This name does not conflict with the registered _Meredith verch
      Llewellyn_ because the elimination of the patronymic marker
      _verch_ counts as a significant change in one syllable under
      PN3C2. [Caoilfhionn inghean U{i'} Fhaol{a'}in, 4/2014 LoAR,

  Alexander Makcristyne. Alternate name Eadulf Beornwaldes sunu.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "8th century
      Anglo-Saxon." This name meets that request.

  Ann MacWard. Name.

  Aurelia Alfaiata d'Alca{c,}ova. Name.

      Appearing on the Letter of Intent as "Aurelia Alfaiata
      d'A_la_{c,}ova", the spelling of the locative byname was a typo
      for the submitter's intended "Al_c{a'}_{c,}ova".

      Unfortunately, we were unable to document "Alc{a'}{c,}ova" with
      the acute accent on the 'a'. Juliana Siren documented
      "d'Alca{c,}ova" without the acute accent in her article
      "Portuguese Names from the 16th Century"
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/portugal16/portugal16data.html#list).
      We have changed the locative byname to match the documentation.

  Conall na Seamar {O'} Conghaile. Name change from Conall {O'}

  swallowtailed voided gules conjoined in chief to an owl sable.

  Dr{a'}kon Athenad{o^}rou. Badge. Argent, a legless dragon displayed

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

  Emeline la Chauciere. Name and device. Per pale azure and gules, in
  saltire four bouquets of rosemary conjoined at the base argent.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "French with a
      preference for 14th century." Both name elements are found in
      the 1292 Census of Paris, making this an authentic French name
      for that time and place, but not for the submitter's preferred
      14th century.

  Esmeria de Rus. Name and device. Purpure, a caldera gringolada barry
  Or and sable, the serpents argent.

      Nice device!

      The submitter has permission to conflict with the badge of

  rampant addorsed Or.

      Nice 16th century Hungarian name!

  Jennet Eva O'Loghlan. Name and device. Gules, a ram's head cabossed
  between three mullets of four points argent.

      This name is registerable as a combination of double English
      given names with an Anglicized Irish byname. However, the
      submitter requested authenticity for "Scots/Irish." This does
      not meet the submitter's authenticity request. The name cannot
      be Scots because Clan Affiliation bynames using _O'_ are not
      found in Scots; such bynames for women are found only in
      Anglicized Irish. Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Names
      Found in Anglicized Irish Documents"
      (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/) provides
      evidence of women using _O'_ style bynames, such as _Rose
      O'Scalle_. Such names are found both with and without the
      apostrophe after the _O_.

      The name also is not authentic for Anglicized Irish, as we have
      no evidence of double given names in Anglicized Irish. _Jennet_
      is found as both an English and an Anglicized Irish given name.
      Therefore, an authentic 16th century Anglicized Irish form would
      be "Jennet O'Loghlan". If the submitter prefers that form, she
      may make a request for reconsideration.

  Kosa Korotkaia. Name change from Katrin Daans and device. Argent
  semy of fish gules.

      The submitter's prior name, _Katrin Daans_, is released.

  Leonardo di Sandro d'Abruzzo. Name and device. Or, a sword inverted
  sable within a serpent vorant of its tail azure.

      Questions were raised in commentary about the formation of the
      locative byname. Although the use of _da_ or _dell'_ as a marker
      was more common, the form _d'Abruzzo_ is found dated to 1627 on
      p. 13 of _Vita della B. Angelina Corbara contessa di Civitella
      dell'Abruzzo_ (https://books.google.com/books?id=Fbk9xGJtHFQC).
      If the submitter would prefer the more typical _dell'Abruzzo_,
      he may make a request for reconsideration.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the serpent's head larger so
      it cannot be confused with an annulet.

  Martin Wasser Speier. Alternate name Martin Stop Heppin.

  Mathghamhain Ua Radh{a'}in. Name and device. Per fess argent and
  vert, a bear passant gules.

      Nice Gaelic name for c. 1100!

      Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as "_a bear cub_", SENA A2C1
      states "_Immature plants, animals, and flowers are allowed only
      when those forms can be documented as period charges_". Thus we
      have registered it as "_a bear_".

  Myr d'Allaines-le-Comte. Name and device. Gules, a fox sejant and on
  a chief argent three pumpkins gules.

      The phrase _d'Allaines-le-Comte_ is the registered byname of the
      submitter's father.

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

  Phelippe le Vigneron. Name and device. Azure, three bunches of
  grapes one and two between three grape leaves, a bordure Or.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "14th century French."
      This name is definitely authentic for the late 13th century, and
      appears to be authentic for the 14th century as well.

  Reinaud de Morley. Name and device. Azure, three bears rampant
  argent, each collared and sustaining an axe Or.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Anglo Norman England,
      1320." Based on documents provided in commentary by Lillia
      Pelican Emerita, this name is authentic for England c. 1320.

  Roxanne Ravenhall. Name and device. Argent, four ravens two and two
  sable.

      Submitted as "Roxanne Raven_Hall", the submitter requested the
      surname "Ravenhall" if it could be documented. Commenters
      documented that form to 1634 in England in the FamilySearch
      Historical Records. We have changed the name to the submitter's
      preferred form.

      _Roxanne_ is a French literary name, which can be combined with
      an English surname under Appendix C.

  Sakurayama Tomoe. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Japan." This name
      meets that request as both elements are found in Japan in 1600.

  Simha di Abramo. Badge. Azure, an owl affronty Or and in chief three
  mullets of four points argent, an orle Or.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the owl larger with the
      wings closer to the body so as to improve identifiability.

  {TH}yri Tyrkisdottir. Name (see RETURNS for device).

      Submitted as "{TH}yri Tyrk_irs_dottir", we have changed the
      byname to "Tyrk_is_dottir" to use the correct Old Norse genitive
      form of the father's name.

  Vopiscus Rufius Donatus. Name and device. Per pale azure and argent,
  a phoenix counterchanged issuant from flames proper.

**** GLEANN ABHANN acceptances ****

  Alienor de Ryggeby. Name.

      Questions were raised during commentary whether this name is
      obtrusively modern in light of the Beatles' song _Eleanor
      Rigby_. Because the submitted name uses Middle English spellings
      and a marked locative, it is not obtrusively modern.

  B{e'}binn na Tengad. Name and device. Per bend Or and gules, a doe
  passant and a swallow rising counterchanged, on a chief sable three
  hearts argent.

  Briar Kievich. Name and device. Vert, a fret couped between three
  swords inverted argent.

      "Briar" is the submitter's legal given name.

  Cecilia Augustina. Device. Gules, in saltire a quill pen and a sword
  inverted, a bordure flory argent.

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

  Elrick Hellstern. Name.

      This name combines a Dutch given name and a German surname, a
      lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

  Katryne MacIntosh the Strange. Heraldic title Golden Panther Herald.

      Submitted as "Golden Panther Herald Extraordinary", recent
      registrations of personal heraldic titles have omitted the word
      _Extraordinary_. We have dropped this element in order to
      register this title.

  Rose Bailie Marsh. Badge. (Fieldless) A badger's head cabossed
  argent marked sable within and conjoined to an annulet vert.

  Tiberius Fabricius Severus. Name.

      Nice Imperial Roman name!

  {U'}lfr inn Rau{dh}i. Name and device. Argent, a wolf's head erased
  gules and in chief two ravens rising respectant sable.

      Submitted as "{U'}lfr inn Rau_d_i", the byname is incorrectly
      spelled. The byname is spelled "inn Rau_{dh}_i", with a letter
      _edh_ rather than a _d_. We have corrected the spelling for
      registration.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the wolf's head larger so as
      to better fill the available space and avoid any confusion as to
      the charge groups.

  argent.

  Elina d'Isigny. Name and device. Argent, a tree blasted vert and a

      This name combines an English given name with the Latinized form
      of a French byname, a lingual mix permitted by Appendix C.

  Elric Osmond. Name and device. Per pall inverted azure, Or, and
  gules, two wolves rampant addorsed counterchanged and a maple leaf

  in chief a mullet of six points sable.

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

**** MIDDLE acceptances ****

  {A'}ine ingen Bardd{a'}in. Alternate name Katty of Cheshire.

  Alric of the Mists. Badge. Per bend sinister purpure and sable, a
  pear and a bordure embattled Or.

  Ann Marie Morgane. Name.

  Argus MacGregour. Name.

      This name was originally submitted as "Argus Mac Gregour", and
      changed at Kingdom with the submitter's permission to add the
      branch name "of Cleftlands" to clear a perceived conflict with
      the registered "Angus MacGregor". We have made an additional
      change, changing the byname from "Mac_Gregour" to "MacGregour".
      Scots does not use a space between _Mac-_ and the rest of the
      surname.

      On the question of conflict, PN3C of SENA states: "Names may be
      different in sound under one standard and appearance under
      another standard." In this case, the two names are clear by
      sound under PN3C2 as the result of a substantial change to the
      first syllable of the given name. The two names also have
      changes in appearance that affect two syllables, which brings
      them clear under PN3C1. Therefore, "Angus MacGregor" and "Argus
      MacGregour" are clear of conflict. We have removed "of
      Cleftlands" from the name as it is not needed.

      The Letter of Intent argued for "MacGregour" as an interpolated
      spelling. However, this exact spelling appears in the
      FamilySearch Historical Records for Scotland dated to 1570.

  Ascelina de Tanet. Device. Per pale wavy argent and purpure, a
  dragon and a wolf passant respectant counterchanged, a point pointed
  sable.

  Avice Grenefeld. Name and device. Argent, on a bend vert between a
  raven contourny and a tower sable six roundels argent.

      The submitter requested authenticity for an unspecified time or
      language/culture. In commentary, Lillia Pelican Emerita was able
      to document the name to the 1460s in England, so it is authentic
      for that time and place.

  Berenger of the Five Lakes. Name and device. Per pale gules and
  azure, an eagle maintaining in its talons a lance fesswise Or.

  Bj{o,}rn inn vi{dh}f{o,}rli. Name.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Norse 9-10th Century."
      Although both elements are found in Old Norse in Iceland, we
      cannot be certain that both were found during the requested time
      period.

  Caden MacMichel. Name (see RETURNS for device).

  Edgar von Drachenstein. Name change from Edgar Chiswick.

      The given name "Edgar" is grandfathered to the submitter.

      The submitter's prior name, "Edgar Chiswick", is retained as an
      alternate name.

  Elena verch Llywelyn. Name and device. Purpure, two otters
  combattant maintaining between them a trident and in chief three
  bees Or.

      This name combines a 13th century form of the given name with a
      16th century form of her father's name. This combination is
      registerable. However, the submitter may be interested to know
      that a fully 13th century Welsh form of her name would be "Elena
      verch Lewelyn" or "Elena verch Lewelin". If she prefers either
      of these forms, she may submit a request for reconsideration.

  Genovefa da Terranova. Name and device. Per pale vert and purpure,
  an open book and on a chief Or two dragonflies purpure.

      The submitter requested authenticity for Italian. Although it is
      registerable, this name is not authentic because it combines a
      French given name with an Italian surname. An authentic, fully
      Italian form would be "Ginevra da Terranova". If the submitter
      prefers the fully Italian form, she may submit a request for
      reconsideration.

  Godiva Langevin of the Osprey. Device. Azure, in bend two domestic
  cats rampant contourny erminois, a bordure raguly ermine.

  Guy d'Avignon. Name.

      Both name elements are found in the 1292 Census of Paris, making
      this an excellent 13th century French name!

  Harkin of the Moorlands. Device. Quarterly sable and vert, a Bowen
  cross within a serpent in annulo vorant of its tail argent.

  Hj{a'}lmr Nj{a'}lsson. Name and device. Per fess argent and azure,
  three valknuts and a wolf's head cabossed counterchanged.

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

  Illiton, Barony of. Badge (see RETURNS for other badge). (Fieldless)
  On a tower sable a fountain.

  Leofric of the Osprey. Device. Gyronny arrondi of six Or and azure,
  a ferret rampant argent maintaining in its forepaws a wooden barrel
  proper.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of a central
      charge on a gyronny arrondi field drawn with the corners of the
      field in the center of a gyron.

  Leonardo Voltera. Device. Argent, a tortoise vert and in chief two
  katanas inverted in saltire sable, a bordure azure.

      There is a step from period practice for the use of the
      non-European katanas.

      Commenters wondered whether this design, especially in
      combination with the given name, was obtrusively modern and too
      allusive to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle imagery. It is not.

  Luca de Luca. Name and device. Azure, a falcon stooping and on a
  point pointed argent a Latin cross flory sable.

      The submitter requested authenticity for an unspecified language
      and time period, although the Letter of Intent indicated a
      preference for "culturally-consistent Italian." This name is an
      authentic Latinized form of a Tuscan Italian name. An authentic
      vernacular form is "Luca di Luca". If the submitter prefers this
      form, he may submit a request for reconsideration.

  Nas{i}ra bint {.I}vaz. Name.

      Submitted as "Nas{i}ra bint _{I.}_vaz", the father's name should
      have a dot on the top of the I, rather than below it. We have
      made this correction for registration.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Turkish/Ottoman." The
      given name appears in "Sixteenth Century Turkish Names" by
      Ursula Palimpsest
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ursula/ottoman/feminine.html).
      In addition, at the Pelican decision meeting, Ursula Palimpsest
      was able to document the patronym to sixteenth century Istanbul,
      in _Constantinopolis/Istanbul: Cultural Encounter, Imperial
      Vision, and the Construction of the Ottoman Capital_ by
      {C,}i{gu}dem Kafescio{gu}lu
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=tchKiDne15UC). Therefore,
      this name is authentic for 16th century Turkish.

  Reichart von Drachenstein. Name change from Wilhelm Reichart.

      No documentation was provided in the Letter of Intent for
      _Reichart_ as a given name. Fortunately, Konrad Dragon found
      _Reichart_ as a given name in _16th-17th Century Hessian Given
      Names and Surnames_ by Kunegundis filia Theoderici
      (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/kunegund/hessenames.html).

      The submitter's prior name, _Wilhelm Reichart_, is retained as
      an alternate name.

  Thomas O Donnabhair. Name and device. Or goutty purpure, three doves
  rising sable, a chief nebuly purpure.

      This name combines an English given name with a Gaelic byname, a
      lingual mix permitted by Appendix C. The submitter may wish to
      know that a fully Gaelic form is "Tomas O Donnabhair". If he
      prefers this form, the submitter may submit a request for
      reconsideration.

  Toirrdhealbhach D{e'}abhr{u'}s. Name.

  {U'}lfr{u'}n Biornsd{o'}ttir. Name.

      Submitted as "{U'}lfr{u'}n Biornsd_o_ttir", accent marks must be
      used (or omitted) consistently throughout an Old Norse name. We
      have changed this name to "{U'}lfr{u'}n Biornsd_{o'}_ttir" for
      registration.

  Ursula Mortimer. Name change from Ursula the Widow.

      The submitter requested authenticity for 16th century England.
      This request was not summarized on the Letter of Intent.
      Fortunately, commenters provided enough information on
      authenticity for us to register the name rather than pending it
      for further discussion. This name is authentic for 16th century
      English.

      The submitter's prior name, _Ursula the Widow_, is released.

  Valgautr ormstunga. Name and device. Sable, a serpent in annulo
  vorant of its tail Or estencelly vert.

  Vladimir Grigorovich D'ragoun'. Name and device. Per chevron gules
  and sable, two onion domed towers and a bear rampant Or.

      Submitted as "Vladimir Grigorovich D'ragoun_", the documentation
      shows that the third element should be spelled "D'ragoun_'_". We
      have changed the name to match the documentation.

      As used in this name, "D'ragoun'" is an unmarked patronymic. The
      June 2013 Cover Letter states that "[u]nmarked patronymics in
      Russian are rare but registerable." Such bynames are found more
      frequently in the Ukraine or Belarus rather than in Russia
      proper.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Russia." This name may
      be authentic for c. 1200 in Russia, but we cannot be certain due
      to our limited documentation in this language.

  Wilhelm von Drachenstein. Name change from William Alexander
  Larchier.

      The submitter's prior name, "William Alexander Larchier", is
      released.

  Berengaria d'Outramar. Name and device. Argent, two wolves
  combattant sable, on a chief azure a rose between two open books
  argent.

      Submitted as "Berengaria d'Outr_e_mar", the submitter requested
      authenticity for the 13th - 15th centuries. As submitted, the
      name was registerable but it was not authentic. While both name
      elements are found in the late 13th century, the submitted
      spelling used two different dialects of French that would not
      have been combined in a single name.

      Based on an Occitan tariff document from 1284, found in
      _Documents sur la langue catalane des anciens comt{e'}s de
      Roussillon et de cerdagne_
      (https://books.google.com/books?id=iegFAAAAQAAJ), an authentic,
      fully Occitan form for the 13th century is "Berengaria
      d'Outr_a_m_a_r". As the submitter permits all changes, we have
      made this small change to the submitted name in order to meet
      her authenticity request.

  Erin O Shea. Name change from Gudrun of the hills.

      The submitter's prior name, _Gudrun of the hills_, is released.

  Heledd of Mathrafal. Name change from Rhiannon Heledd of Mathrafal.

      The submitter requested authenticity for "Welsh." "Heledd" is a
      literary name. Because we do not currently have any evidence of
      its use by real people, the name is registerable but it is not
      authentic.

      The submitter's prior name, "Rhiannon Heledd of Mathrafal", is
      released.

  Jimena Taionez. Name and device. Vert, a bend sinister engrailed

      The submitter requested authenticity for "16th c female Irish
      Gaelic." This name is not authentic for the 16th century; the
      latest evidence of the byname is from the 12th century. However,
      the name is registerable.

  Ysopete Mah. Name.

      "Ysopete" is a Spanish literary name based on the Spanish
      edition of Aesop's fables, _Ysopete ystoriado_, published in
      1489. By the 16th century, _Ysopete ystoriado_ had become one of
      the most popular and widely read books in Spain. There is a
      pattern of using literary names, and particularly names from
      classical literature, in 16th century Spain. In fact, the
      Spanish on the 1540-41 expedition of Francisco Vasquez de
      Coronado gave the Spanish name _Ysopete_ to one of their Native
      American guides and translators.

      The pattern of combining Spanish given names with indigenous New
      World bynames is documented in "Names from the 1570 Census of
      Cozumel," by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada and Juliana de
      Luna (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Cozumel/). Therefore, the
      Spanish _Ysopete_ may be combined with the native (likely
      Yucatec Maya) surname _Mah_.

  Zvir L'vov syn Gorin. Name and device. Per pale embattled gules and
  argent, a dragon segreant argent and a Bengal tiger rampant
  contourny sable marked argent.

      Please advise the submitter to draw the tiger with a thicker
      outline so it doesn't look slashed.

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

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

**** AN TIR returns ****

  Anneke von Frankenstein. Device. Per chevron inverted purpure and
  lozengy purpure and argent, four mascles in cross argent.

      This device is returned for conflict with the device of
      Lisabetta Davanzati: _Quarterly azure and purpure, four mascles
      argent_. There is a DC for changes to the field. However,
      Anneke's mascles' position is forced on the purpure portion of
      the field, so there is no additional DC for arrangement.

  Eberhardt Heinrichssohn. Device. Quarterly azure and sable, in bend
  sinister two pairs of the heads of a double-headed eagle erased Or.

      This device submission is returned for creating the appearance
      of marshalling. Per SENA A6F2d: _"Multiple Charges in a Section:
      When any section of such a field contains multiple charges of
      the same type in a way that cannot be described as a standard
      single pattern covering the entire field, multiple charges of
      different types, or multiple charge groups, it creates the
      appearance of marshaling."_ Here, we have two sections in bend
      sinister with each two charges addorsed which appear be an
      independent piece of armory.

  Hei{dh}r in lj{o'}sa. Badge. Purpure, in pale two mullets of eight
  points Or.

      This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Golda
      ferch Deiniol: _Per chevron vert and Or, two suns in their
      splendour Or_. There is a DC for changing the field but no
      difference is granted between mullets of eight points and suns.
      Golda's suns position on the field is forced by their tincture
      so no additional DC can be obtained for arrangement.

  Richard the Handsome. Device. Vairy azure and Or, a tricorporate
  lion argent charged on each shoulder with an ermine spot sable.

      The device submission has been withdrawn.

  Sigri{dh}r Eirikskona. Device. Vert chauss{e'}, an owl affronty
  ermine.

      Per precedent, no difference is granted between an owl affronty
      and an owl in its default position close, or contourny:

           An owl affronty has been ruled to be equivalent to an
           owl close (and thus therefore, also to an owl close
           and contourny): "The 'blobbiness' of the owl's body,
           and the fact that the owl is guardant in all cases,
           leads me to conclude that there is no visual
           difference for turning the owl's body affronty" (LoAR
           of October 1992). Therefore there is no meaningful
           posture difference for turning the charges in chief
           (which are contourny) to this owl affronty, as the owl
           affronty is equivalent to an owl contourny. [Ambra
           Biancospina, 04/2002, R-Middle]

      Therefore this device conflicts with the badge of Robin of
      Gilwell: _(Fieldless) An owl ermine_ with a single DC for the
      difference between fielded and fieldless design. It also
      conflicts with the device of Nicolai van der Kerke: _Vert, an
      owl contourny ermine_ with a single DC for changes to the field.

  Francesca di Lucca. Device. Azure, three aardvarks statant argent.

      This device is returned for running afoul of SENA A2A which
      states "Items which have not been registered in over a decade,
      have only been registered a few times, or have recent
      registrations only via the Grandfather Clause may need to be
      documented." The last registration of an aardvark is from 1999
      and thus it needs to be documented _de novo_. No documentation
      was provided by the submitter or during commentary indicating
      that an aardvark was a registerable charge. Discussion even
      indicated that the animal is elusive and likely would not have
      been seen by European visitors in period.

  Mavis Campbell. Device. Per bend sinister sable and gules, in pale
  three unicornate horses courant argent.

      This device is returned for the use of unicornate horses.
      Unicorns, in Society armory, are expected to have cloven hooves,
      a lion's tail, tufts of hair on the legs and generally a beard.
      Here we have horses with a beard and a frontal horn.

  Ossana van der Linden. Device. Per chevron azure and argent, a
  chevron throughout counterchanged and in base five linden leaves
  stems to center vert.

      This device is returned for redraw. Blazoned on the Letter of
      Intent as "_Per chevron azure and argent, a chevron throughout
      counterchanged_", the overwhelming visual effect is that of "a
      chevron enhanced and on a point pointed..." or "argent chap{e'},
      a chevron azure and in base.." This might be solved by drawing a
      narrower chevron.

  Wyldewode, Canton of. Device. Per fess embattled Or and azure, three
  chevronels braced vert and a savage's head couped within a laurel
  wreath Or.

      This device is returned for multiple issues. We have a single
      group of primaries which combines ordinaries with
      non-ordinaries. This has been disallowed for some time, and was
      recently re-affirmed in the return of Sean Kirkpatrick, on the
      LoAR of July 2015.

      Even if we could document the combination of chevronels braced
      with other primary charges, this could not be registered. When
      part of a primary charge group, a wreath and what it surrounds
      are co-primary charges, which means that we have a single group
      of three different types of charge: chevronel, head and wreath.
      This slot-machine heraldry is disallowed, per SENA A3D2a.

      On resubmission, please ensure that the petition of support
      follows the requirements of the Administrative Handbook.

  Chagatai Burilgi. Badge. Purpure, on a pale argent a bolddogge
  sejant afronty sable.

      This badge is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which states that
      "Elements must be drawn in their period forms". Although the
      word "boldogge" was documented to 1518 no evidence was presented
      that the dog in period looked like the current breed called
      bulldog. Documentation that could be found actually depicted a
      dog with a very different shaped head and otherwise showed that
      the bulldog breed has changed a lot within the last century.

      The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of
      Catriona the Blind: _Purpure, on a pale argent a talbot rampant
      sable maintaining a feather vert_.

  Violetta Veneziana. Device. Purpure, a hippopotamus statant
  contourny and on a chief nebuly argent four violets proper.

      This submission has been withdrawn.

**** ATENVELDT returns ****

  Cirina Badartai. Name change from Serena the Lavendere.

      This name must be returned because _Badartai_ is not a properly
      constructed Mongol name element (or even a properly constructed
      Mongol word). The Letter of Intent argues that "Badartai" is a
      constructed byname intended to mean "monk," based on the Mongol
      verb _badarcila_. However, in Mongolian, the suffix _-tai_
      cannot be added to a verb to create a noun or a byname. The
      submitter allows no changes so we could not correct this name to
      a registerable form.

      When considering her options for resubmission, the submitter may
      be interested to know that, in commentary, Ursula Green Staff
      documented the following Mongol words and titles usable as
      bynames: _ubasi_ or _ubasanc_ (monk, often used for a woman);
      _toyin_ or _doyin_ (perhaps the most common Mongol term for a
      monk); _qo{sv}ang_ (for a Buddhist monk); _gab{sv}es_ (title for
      a Buddhist monk who has completed advanced study); _gejuni_
      (Tibetan monk in charge of novices); and _simnanc_, _{sv}amnanc_
      or _{sv}imnanc_ (monk/nun). As the submitter requested a
      feminine name, the terms _ubasanc_, _toyin_ or _simnanc_ would
      be most appropriate.

  Riane Goch. Device change. Gules, on a plate a sword gules
  surmounted by a dragon's head erased sable.

      This device is returned for multiple issues.

      This design violates precedents which forbid multiple tertiary
      charge groups on the same underlying charge. The sword and head
      form two distinct charge groups on the plate.

      If we did treat the sword and the dragon's head as a single
      group of tertiaries, this would be returned for conflict with
      the device of Edwin Bersark: _Gules, a roundel so drawn as to
      represent a round shield battered in long and honourable
      service, argent_, with only one DC for adding the tertiary
      group.

      On redesign, please advise the submitter to draw the erasing
      with slightly more amplitude.

**** ATLANTIA returns ****

  H{a'}kon Erfikv{ae}{dh}isk{a'}ld. Name.

      This name must be returned because the constructed byname
      "Erfikv{ae}{dh}isk{a'}ld" does not fit a documented pattern. The
      Old Norse term _erfikv{ae}{dh}i_ refers to a specific type of
      funeral poem. The submitter intended the byname to refer to a
      skald who writes or is known for such poems. However, the
      examples provided in the documentation of skalds named after
      their types of performances used very broad general terms --
      "deeds" (_d{a'}{dh}ask{a'}ld_), "law" (_loftunga_) or "songs"
      (_{o'}{dh}arkeptr_). No examples could be found of bynames based
      on specific forms of songs or poetry. This name, referring to a
      very specific sub-type of Norse poetry, is not supported by the
      documentation and, therefore, must be returned.

      His device is registered under the holding name "H{a'}kon of
      Ponte Alto".

  A{dh}{i'}sla Frilla. Badge. (Fieldless) In annulo five cubit arms,
  each gripping the next, 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 pentagonal structure as
      arms.

      There is a step from period practice for charges arranged in
      annulo, rather than in their default arrangement.

  Euphilia Ramsbottom. Device. Argent, a musimon's head cabossed
  sable.

      This device is returned for multiple conflicts. Precedent
      states:

           The musimon's head and the goat's head are quite
           similar visually. The only visual difference between
           these types of head is that a musimon has a set of
           ram's horns in addition to the goat horns. We are not
           aware of evidence indicating that a goat's head and a
           musimon's head would have been considered distinct
           charges in period. Thus, until such evidence has been
           presented to the contrary, we rule that difference
           will not be given between these charges on purely
           visual grounds. We note that in the case of the entire
           animal, in the LoAR of July 1998 no type difference
           was given between a goat and a musimon. [David
           Friedrich von Einbeck, 01/2003, Calontir-R]

      Similarly, a musimon's head and a ram's head are very similar
      visually with only the addition of the goat's horns and we have
      no evidence that a ram's head and a musimon's head would have
      been considered distinct charges in period. Thus, this device
      conflicts with the device of Alessandra Rodr{i'}guez de L{e'}on,
      _Argent, a ram's head cabossed sable, a bordure purpure_, and
      the device of Adrianna Gretchen von Fehmarn, _Argent, a ram's
      head cabossed sable and in chief three roses proper_. In each
      case, there is only one DC for removal of secondary charges. It
      also conflicts with the device of Magnus Jager, _Or, a ram's
      head cabossed sable enflamed gules_. There is one DC for
      changing the field but no additional DC for removing the
      enflaming.

  Kasha Ivanov syn. Badge. (Fieldless) A winged fish haurient wings
  addorsed argent.

      This badge is returned for conflict with the device of Ismenia
      Wystan: _Vert, in canton a winged eel hauriant embowed argent_.
      There is a DC for the difference between fielded and fieldless
      design but no DC for position on the field versus a fieldless
      badge and we get no additional DC for posture or for type when
      eel and fish are winged.

  Melkorka inn litli. Name change from Raven Tabur.

      Submitted as "Melkorka in_n_ litl_i_", the byname needs to be
      put in the feminine form to match the gender of the given name.
      We would have changed the byname to "in_ litl_a_" for
      registration, but the submitter allowed no changes. Therefore
      this name must be returned.

  Statius Valerius Gallus. Device. Sable, a dunghill cock rising
  contourny wings displayed Or between an increscent, a decrescent and
  a crescent pendant argent.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the central charge, generally
      confusing it with a firebird.

  Subudei Sukeken. Name.

      This name must be returned because its construction does not
      obey the rules of Mongolian grammar. As documented, the element
      "Sukeken" is the name of a tribe. The unmodified name of a tribe
      cannot be used to form a byname in Mongolian. Instead, the
      proper forms would be either: (1) "Sukeken_-u_ Subudei", putting
      the tribal name into the genitive form and swapping the order;
      or (2) "Subudei Sukeke_dei_" or "Subudei Sukeke_tei_", forming a
      second given name based on the tribal name. Either of these
      changes is a major change, which the submitter does not allow.
      Therefore, the name must be returned.

      His device is registered under the holding name "Subudei of
      Nordwache".

  Teka Turmanova. Name change from Teka Turmanov.

      No documentation was provided on the Letter of Intent (and none
      was provided in commentary) demonstrating that _Turmanova_ is a
      period surname. Although the surname "Turmanov_" is already
      registered to the submitter, we cannot simply add an _-a_ to
      that spelling without supporting evidence. PN1B2g of SENA
      permits "[o]nly the exact, actual name phrase from the
      registered form" to continue to be used. Therefore, we must
      return this name.

  Valko Chilikov. Name.

      This name must be returned because no documentation was provided
      (and none was found in commentary) for the byname "Chilikov".

      The Letter of Intent suggested that the Polish given name
      _Chilko_, dated to 1558 and 1560 in Lillia de Vaux, "A
      Preliminary Survey of Names from the Historical Dictionary of
      Personal Names in Bia{l/}ystok" (2011 KWHSS Proceedings), might
      be usable as an unmarked patronym. However, under PN2C2b, Polish
      can be combined with Russian only if there are less than 300
      years between the elements. The given name is dated to 1253,
      more than 300 years earlier than the first instance of _Chilko_.
      We cannot, therefore, change this name to _Valko Chilko_ for
      registration.

      His device is registered under the holding name "Valko of
      Calafia".

  Zosime Pompeiana. Badge. (Fieldless) An Ionic column argent
  conjoined in chief to a heart vert.

      Blazoned on the Letter of intent as _"silphium pod"_, neither
      the submitter nor the commenters provided any period depiction
      of a silphium pod. The depicted charge resembles closely a heart
      and we have reblazoned it as such and we are returning this
      badge so the submitter can decide if they want to choose another
      charge.

**** CALONTIR returns ****

  Kedivor Offeriot. Name.

      This name must be returned because the byname _Offeriot_,
      meaning an ordained priest, is presumptuous. [Selewine sacerdos
      Guytherin, 10/2009 LoAR, A-An Tir] Bynames referring to
      ordination or its equivalent imply powers and thus are not
      registerable. Religious bynames that do not imply ordination,
      however, are registerable. [Cadan Sacart, 8/2012 LoAR, A-Caid]

**** DRACHENWALD returns ****

  Astrid i Erismarc. Device. Per fess engrailed azure and argent, a
  monster with the head and torso of a brunette maiden proper, the
  body of a seadog, and the tail of a wyvern passant vert, winged
  argent, playing a recorder Or, between three seebl{a:}tter
  counterchanged.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the components of the central
      charge. Despite the blazon, the body is not that of the heraldic
      sea-dog, which more closely resembles that of a talbot (complete
      with four feet) than the two-footed, skirted figure drawn here.

      Additionally, this device is returned for having a
      proper-tinctured monster. Precedent says:

           "a monster without a heraldically defined proper
           coloration may not be "brown proper", even if the
           animals which donated the component parts for the
           monster may be brown when in nature." [Cynuise {o'}
           Cian{a'}in of Bardsea, R-Trimaris, Nov 2002 LoAR]
           [Reaffirmed LoAR of April 2013]

      The same is true for other types of proper besides brown: if the
      creature doesn't have a defined heraldic coloration when proper,
      it may not be used in the construction of a new monster.

  Drachenwald, Kingdom of. Badge for Company of Archers. Or, in pale a
  dragon passant coward sable and two arrows inverted in saltire
  gules, a bordure gyronny sable and gules.

      "Company of Archers" is a generic identifier.

      This badge is returned for having a bordure gyronny of two
      colors. Per SENA A3B3d, gyronny ordinaries are not allowed to be
      of two colors. There must be good contrast between their parts.

  Knight's Crossing, Barony of. Order name Order of the Raven's Beak.

      This name must be returned because it does not follow any
      documented period pattern for order names. The Letter of Intent
      argued that the order name uses the pattern of names based on a
      heraldic charges because a "raven's beak" is the lingua Anglica
      form of the polearm known as a _bec de corbin_. However, no
      evidence was presented (and none was found in commentary or
      afterwards) that a _bec de corbin_ was ever referred to in
      English as a "raven's beak." Rather, it appears that the lingua
      Anglica form of _bec de corbin_ is _bec de corbin_. Even
      English-language Wikipedia uses _Bec de Corbin_ as the name of
      the polearm (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bec_de_corbin).
      Lacking evidence of any other pattern that would support this
      name, it must be returned.

  Nero Lupo. Device. Vert, a wolf's head erased contourny argent
  within a bordure argent golpy.

      This device/badge is returned for redraw. Please instruct the
      submitter on the proper way to draw erasing: either three or
      four prominent, pointed jags on the erasing, as described on the
      Cover Letter to the November 2001 LoAR:

           Therefore, for purposes of recreating period armorial
           style for erasing, the erasing should (1) have between
           three and eight jags; (2) have jags that are
           approximately one-sixth to one-third the total height
           of the charge being erased; and (3) have jags that are
           not straight but rather are wavy or curved.

      Alternatively, the submitter could decide to resubmit the
      primary charge as a wolf's head couped.

**** EALDORMERE returns ****

  F{a'}el{a'}n Ruadh ua Aodha. Device. Argent, a wolf passant
  contourny interlaced with three trees in fess blasted and eradicated
  sable.

      This device is returned for several issues.

      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. Here there is no satisfying way
      to describe the relation between the trees and the wolf in
      heraldic terms. The charge groups are unclear as the wolf is
      overlapping two of the trees but is also overlapped by the
      central tree.

      The submitter attempted to document this design as an
      Individually Attested Pattern for German heraldry. Of the
      examples provided, only one resembled the submitted design and
      the orientation of the animate charge was the default to dexter
      instead of contourny here. This is not sufficient to establish a
      pattern.

  Meleshka Vidarovaia. Name.

      For several reasons, this name must be returned. _Meleshka_ is a
      documented male given name. The evidence of feminizing the
      Russian forms of Greek or Latin saint's names does not support
      the use of the vernacular _Meleshka_ as a period female name. As
      a male given name, _Meleshka_ cannot be combined with a surname
      that uses the feminine suffix _-aia_.

      The byname _Vidarovaia_ was not supported by the evidence. It
      was presented as a patronymic based on a hypothetical Russian
      form of the Old Norse given name _V{i'}{dh}arr_. However, that
      name would not be pronounced like _Vidar_ -- it would be closer
      to _Vithar_. We currently have no evidence of this name crossing
      over from Old Norse into Russian. None of the examples in the
      Letter of Intent indicate how a name like _V{i'}{dh}arr_ would
      be spelled in Russian if it did cross over.

      Because of these issues, the name is not registerable as
      submitted and must be returned.

      When resubmitting, the submitter may wish to know that Russian
      and Scandinavian names can be combined under Appendix C. Thus,
      the combination of a Russian female given name and the Old Norse
      byname _V{i'}{dh}ars kona_ (meaning wife of _Vi{dh}arr_) is
      possible, as long as the given name can be dated within 300
      years of the byname.

      The submitter's device is registered under the holding name
      "Meleshka of Bryniau Tywynnog".

**** EAST returns ****

  Aiden Underhill. Device. Or fretty, on a chief vert three lozenges
  Or.

      This device is returned for violating the requirement that an
      "emblazon must be reproducible by a competent heraldic artist,
      with only normal heraldic variation, from the written blazon"
      and for violating SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be
      drawn in their period forms" Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as
      "_semy of frets conjoined vert_", with only three full charges
      on the entire field, this cannot be considered semy. Therefore,
      this must be considered as some strange variation of fretty.
      Since we have no period evidence of this depiction and no way to
      blazon it properly, this must be returned.

  East, Kingdom of the. Badge for Company of Fellowship. Azure, a
  covered saltcellar shedding salt and an orle argent.

      Unfortunately, this badge conflicts with the badge of Arwa
      al-Jinniyya: _Azure, a covered saltcellar shedding salt, a
      bordure argent_. There is only one DC for changing the type of
      peripheral secondary.

  Sakurayama Tomoe. Device. Gyronny purpure and argent, on a flame
  gules a lotus blossom in profile argent.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the flame, which did not
      match period depictions of the charge.

  {TH}yri Tyrkisdottir. Device. Gyronny gules and sable, a tree
  blasted and eradicated between three mullets of six points one and
  two argent.

      The submitter attempted to register this device using an
      Individually Attested Pattern in English armory. However,
      although they provided sufficient evidence of the use of gyronny
      gules and sable fields, neither the submitter nor the commenters
      were able to provide evidence of the use of mullets of six
      points in the same jurisdiction.

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

**** GLEANN ABHANN returns ****

  {AE}thellind Leifsd{o'}ttir. Name.

      This name must be returned for lack of documentation. The sole
      documentation for the given name was Searle's _Onomasticon
      Anglo-Saxiconum_. By longstanding precedent, "Searle in general
      should not be relied upon as the sole source of documentation
      for an Old English name." [Aug. 2008 Cover Letter] As explained
      in the August 2008 Cover Letter, Searle is problematic for
      several reasons:

           First, all of the headwords that Searle uses have been
           standardized to a normalized Old English form. As he
           says on p. viii of the introduction, "The names,
           whether Northumbrian, Mercian, West Saxon, or Kentish,
           have been arranged according to the West Saxon
           spelling as given in Sweet's Glossary to his Oldest
           English Text". Sometimes these normalized forms are
           identical with the documentary forms (that is, the
           forms as they are found in actual documents), but in
           general there is no way to tell whether this is the
           case from the entry alone. The only forms that can
           safely be assumed to be documentary are the secondary
           headwords.

           Second, and connected to the first issue, Searle
           included many non-Old English names, including
           Continental Germanic and Old Norse names that were
           found in the English documents that he was using as
           sources, even when the bearer is known not to have
           been English. For instance, he lists the Continental
           Germanic masculine name _Ebroin_ as an instance of its
           Old English cognate _Eoforwine_. However, the fact
           that _Ebroin_ was used in the 7th C does not mean that
           its Old English cognate _Eoforwine_ was also used at
           that time. In fact, in some cases the Old English
           cognate name is not attested at all.

           Third, Searle gives many variant spellings of the
           individual themes, and these variant spellings should
           be used with care. Some of the variants that he lists
           are very rare, perhaps even scribal errors. Some of
           the variants he may have misidentified; for example,
           he lists _bren-_ as a variant spelling of the theme
           _beorn-_, but none of the commenters were able to find
           any examples of a name using the theme _beorn-_ where
           the theme was spelled _bren-_ (Brinwen the Fair, LoAR
           05/2008, East-A, q.v.). Furthermore, some variant
           spellings are the result of different orthographic
           practices in different dialects, which means that some
           particular prototheme variant may not be compatible
           with a particular deuterotheme variant even if both
           are individually unexceptionable. The variant
           spellings of themes that Searle gives may only be used
           if it is demonstrated that they were both used in
           names which are temporally and dialectically
           compatible.

      In the case of the given name "{AE}thellind", it appears to be a
      "reverse-engineering" by Searle of the Frankish given names
      "Adal(l)indis", "Adal(l)inda", or "Adalind". There is no
      corroborating evidence for "{AE}thellind" in Old English. In
      addition, we were not able to construct "{AE}thellind" from
      documented Old English elements because we could find no
      evidence of the second element _-lind_ in Old English names.

      We would have changed the given name to one of the documented
      Frankish forms, but a change in language from Old English to
      Frankish is a major change, which the submitter does not allow.

  Aki no Moronaga. Device. Argent, the hanzi pronunced w{u'} within an
  annulet sable.

      This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Kameyama
      Kengoro: _Argent, the kanji shu within a Japanese well frame
      sable_. As we give no difference between types of abstract
      symbols, there is only one DC for changing the type of secondary
      charge.

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

  Asa Chotia. Name.

      This item must be returned because the legal name element being
      used by the submitter was not properly attested. Although two
      heralds attested that _Chotia_ was part of the submitter's legal
      name appearing on a legal document, the attestation did not
      indicate whether _Chotia_ is a given name or a surname. Under
      PN1B2e, a legal name element can only be used in the same way
      that it appears in the submitter's legal name -- given names as
      given names, bynames as bynames, etc. Without knowing how
      _Chotia_ appears in the submitter's legal name, we cannot say
      whether its use in this name is correct. Therefore, this name
      must be returned.

  Marguerite d'Alen{c,}on. Name.

      Unfortunately, this lovely name must be returned because it
      presumes upon _Marguerite de Navarre_, a 16th century queen who
      was also referred to as _Marguerite d'Alen{c,}on_. SENA PN4D
      prohibits registration of names identical to important non-SCA
      persons, including historical figures. This prohibition applies
      to all forms in which their names were known.

      Individuals who "significantly shaped the course of world
      history, science, or the arts are generally important enough to
      protect." PN4D1. By this measure, _Marguerite de Navarre_ aka
      _Marguerite d'Alen{c,}on_ is important enough to protect.
      Marguerite was one of the significant figures of the French
      Renaissance, both as an author of poems and plays and as a
      patron of authors and artists. Her most famous writings were
      _The Heptameron_, a collection of short stories, and _Miroir de
      l'{a^}me p{e'}cheresse_ (_Mirror of the Sinful Soul_), a
      religious poem. The latter work influenced many major figures in
      the Protestant Reformation in England and was even translated
      into English by a young Elizabeth I. Marguerite supported
      numerous significant artists and writers, such as Rabelais and
      Pierre de Ronsard. Her salon achieved international fame. She
      also has her own entry in the _Encyclopedia Britannica_, under
      the name _Margaret of Angouleme_, in which she is hailed as one
      of the two most influential women in France during her lifetime.
      _Marguerite_ is therefore significant enough to protect from
      presumption under all the names by which she was actually known,
      including _Marguerite d'Alen{c,}on_.

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

**** LOCHAC returns ****

  Eleonora Rose. Alternate name Eleanora Rose.

      This item was pended for additional commentary as to whether a
      submitter should be able to register an alternative name that is
      effectively identical to her primary name. Unfortunately, based
      on SENA as currently written, she cannot do so.

      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."

      A person is considered to give permission to conflict to herself
      automatically. Thus, the question is whether the two names are
      "identical" and cannot be registered despite the assumed
      permission to conflict. Although "Ele_o_nora" and "Ele_a_nora"
      are different in appearance, they are not meaningfully different
      in sound. Without a difference in both sound and appearance, the
      two names cannot be registered, even with permission to
      conflict. No exception for names registered by the same person
      could be found within the existing language of SENA, quoted
      above.

      For this alternate name to be registerable, we would have to
      change SENA itself to carve out an exception to PN3C. While we
      have the power to change precedents, changing SENA requires
      approval from the Board of Directors. Rather than pend the name
      longer while we explore the lengthy process for changing SENA,
      we are returning this alternate name at this time.

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

**** MERIDIES returns ****

None.

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

**** MIDDLE returns ****

  Caden MacMichel. Device. Per pale azure and vert, a winged narwhal
  naiant embowed argent between three escallops Or.

      This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2
      which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable."
      Commenters had trouble identifying the primary charge, generally
      parsing it as a hummingbird with an odd tail.

  Illiton, Barony of. Badge. Barry wavy argent and azure, a fish
  contourny gules.

      This badge is returned for redraw. Blazoned on the Letter of
      Intent as a "_salmon_", commenters had no trouble identifying
      the charge as a fish but not specifically a salmon. Salmon in
      period heraldic art were typically drawn with a pronounced
      overbite and longer head than generic fish. Since the submitter
      requested that the primary charge not be blazoned as a "_fish_",
      we are forced to return this badge.

  Sofonisba Voltera. Device. Argent, a peacock in his pride proper
  within a four lobed quadrate cornice sable, in chief two
  seebl{a:}tter gules.

      This device is returned for violating SENA A3E1, Arrangement of
      Charge Groups. All patterns with three or more charge groups
      must be found in Appendix J or documented as a period
      arrangement. This arrangement, "_a primary charge within a
      secondary charge, with another secondary charge group of
      enumerated charges_", is not listed in SENA Appendix J, and so
      may not be registered without documentation that this is a
      period arrangement of charge groups.

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

**** NORTHSHIELD returns ****

  Piero di Silvestro Verrocchi. Device. Per fess Or and bendy argent
  and gules, on a fess gules three estoiles Or, in chief a lion
  passant azure.

      This device is returned for redraw. The fess is drawn too high
      on the field and should be centered on the horizontal midline of
      the field to divide it into two equal sections. On redraw,
      please ensure to have an equal number of red and white traits in
      the lower bendy section.

      Drawing a larger fess could allow for bigger and easier to
      identify estoiles.

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

**** OUTLANDS returns ****

None.

MEETING (OR AS NOTED): *****

**** DRACHENWALD pends ****

  Insula Draconis, Principality of. Order name Order of Luna.

      After the close of commentary, a question was raised whether
      this order name conflicts with _Lunar Pursuivant_, a heraldic
      title registered to the Middle Kingdom. This name has been
      pended for commentary on this issue.

      This was item 10 on the Drachenwald letter of October 31, 2016.
