East Kingdom results from the October 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.

Corotica Senebelenae. Name and device. Per chevron gules and sable, a wolf courant and a wheat stalk leaved argent.

Submitted as Corotica merkka Senebelenae, the marker merkka is not appropriate for this name. We were unable to find firm support for the form merkka or merka as a vernacular Brythonic marker. Moreover, the rest of the name is Latin and would not have used a vernacular patronymic/matronymic marker in any event. As the submitter allows all changes but specifically does not want the Latin marker filia, we have registered the name with an unmarked matronymic (an attested pattern for Latinized British names) in the form Corotica _ Senebelenae.

Shiklah al-Zarqa’. Name.

The submitter requested authenticity for an unspecified time, place or culture. Shiklah is a 9th century Arabic given name. However, we were unable to put a precise date on the Arabic epithet al-Zarqa’, although it appears as a name in literature from the Abbasid Caliphate (750-1258 C.E.). Thus, we cannot say for certain whether this name is authentic for 9th century Arabic, but it may well be.

Vindiorix Ordovix. Name change from Finn the Black.

Submitted as Vindiorix Ordowik, the byname did not use the same transliteration conventions as the given name. PN2D requires names to use a single consistent transliteration system. As the submitter allows all changes, we have corrected the name to Vindiorix Ordovix for registration.

The submitter’s previous name, Finn the Black, is retained as an alternate name.
