East Kingdom results from the August 2019 LoAR

LoARs are published on the Laurel Archives page each month.

The Society College of Arms runs on monthly cycles and letters. Each month, the College processes name and armory submissions from all of the Kingdoms. Final decisions on submissions are made at the monthly meetings of the Pelican Queen of Arms (names) and the Wreath King of Arms (armory). Pelican and Wreath then write up their decisions in a Letter of Acceptances and Return (LoAR). After review and proofreading, LoARs generally are released two months after the meeting where the decisions are made.

  • An “acceptance” indicates that the item(s) listed are now registered with the Society.
  • A “return” indicates that the item is returned to the submitter for additional work.
  • A “pend” indicates that the item is being held for a month while additional research or work is done.

East Acceptances

  • Adeliza de Lahaia. Name.
    The submitter requested authenticity for 1050-1200 Anglo-Norman. This name meets that request.
  • Ailwin æt Myttune. Name and device. Per fess azure goutty d’eau and vert, a bridge of three spans throughout Or, issuant therefrom three pallets wavy argent.
    Submitted as Ailwin æt Mitune, Old English place names that follow the preposition æt must be in the dative case. Mitune is not the dative case; the dative case is Mytt{u-}ne. Therefore, we have changed the name to Ailwin æt Myttune for registration, omitting the diacritical mark to make the smallest possible necessary change.
  • Aonghus mac Aodha of Invernaver. Name.
    The submitter requested authenticity for 13th-14th century Scottish Highlands. This name does not meet that request because it combines a Gaelic personal name with a Scots place name. Mixed language names of this type were not found in period. Nevertheless, because Gaelic and Scots is a permitted lingual mix per Appendix C, this name can be registered.
  • Brendan Firebow. Badge. (Fieldless) In pall three acorns conjoined by the stems Or.
  • Brice MacTavisch. Name.
  • Bridget MacKinnon. Name and device. Or, a heart gules, a bordure checky sable and argent.
    Artist’s note: Please draw the bordure wider with considerably larger checks.
  • Daniela Rosa da Venezia. Name change from Elena Rosa da Venezia.
    The submitter’s previous name, Elena Rosa da Venezia, is released.
  • Donnchadh mac Eóin. Device. Azure, an open book, on a chief argent a domino mask sable.
  • Finna Hrafnsdóttir. Name change from Eithne Bán ingen Fhiachach.
    The submitter requested authenticity for Viking culture. This name is authentic for 9th-14th centuries in Iceland and possibly elsewhere in Scandinavia as well.
    The submitter’s previous name, Eithne Bán ingen Fhiachach, is released.
  • Geirraðr Otrsson. Name.
    Submitted as Geirraðr Otrson, the byname was not correctly constructed. For Old Norse patronymics, the father’s name must be in the genitive form, which is Otrs. Therefore, we have changed the byname to the grammatically correct Otrsson.
  • Giovanni il Cuoco di Napoli. Name.
    The submitter requested the spelling Geovanni for the given name if it could be documented. We were unable to do so.
  • Hámundr Bjornsson. Name and device. Per chevron paly gules and argent and sable, a chevron Or, in base a bear rampant argent.
    The submitter requested that the byname be spelled with an o-umlaut if that form could be documented. We were not able to do so. Some modern sources use an o with an umlaut in place of the period o-ogonek ({o,}) character. However, we currently have no evidence of o-umlaut in period Scandinavian languages before 1650.
  • Ívarr Valsson. Device. Azure, a fess checky argent and gules between two fleurs-de-lys and a falcon striking Or.
  • Jeanne Robin. Badge. Per chevron inverted flory at the point gules and Or.
    Artist’s note: Please ensure that the field division is centered, including the demi-fleur in the overall height.
  • Kendrick de la Mer. Name and device. Quarterly sable and vert all mullety, a wolf rampant argent.
  • Lily Morgaine of the East. Name and device. Purpure, a lily argent slipped and leaved vert, on a chief argent a roundel between an increscent and a decrescent sable.
    The byname of the East is the lingua Societatis form of the attested Middle English byname del Est.
  • Maryna Borowska. Name and device. Per saltire azure and argent, a domestic cat passant sable, a bordure purpure.
    Nice 16th century Polish name!
  • Maryna Borowska. Badge. (Fieldless) A domestic cat couchant sable maintaining a sprig of bilberry vert fructed azure.
    Artist’s note: Please draw the cat with internal detailing to aid in identification.
  • Sara of Stonley. Device. Per chevron argent and purpure, two quatrefoils gules and an otter rampant argent.
    Artist’s note: Please draw the otter more upright to fill the available space.
  • Sarra Byrd. Name and device. Azure, a martlet, on a chief argent three pomegranates gules slipped and leaved vert.
    Nice English name from the 13th century onwards!
  • Violet Hughes. Badge. (Fieldless) A Suffolk knot purpure.
  • Wynefryde Bredhers. Reblazon of device. Vert, a sprig of three fern fronds within a bordure Or.
    Blazoned when registered in April 2012 as Vert, a fern within a bordure Or, some clarity in the blazoning of the fern was desired.
