1: Anthonye Saker - New Name Change forwarded
Old Item: Antonio di Capizzi, to be released. Submitter desires a male name. Language/culture (Elizabethan English) most important. The submitter 's current name was registered in Mar. 2005 (Atlantia). Both the given name and surname are found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Index of Names in the 1582 Subsidy Roll of London" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/london1582.html).

2: Brénainn mac Fergusa - New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Sable, two wolf 's heads couped close respectant argent, a base checky sable and argent.
Submitter desires a male name. Language/culture (Old Irish Gaelic [c.700-c.900]) most important. Brénainn is an Old Irish Gaelic masculine name found in Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Brenainn.shtml), with an Annals date of 770. Fergusa is the genitive form of the Old Irish Gaelic masculine name Fergus (ibid., http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Fearghus.shtml), with Annals dates of 732-894. Construction of a simple patronym using the particle mac 'son ' followed by the genitive of the father 's given name is found in Sharon Krossa, "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#simplepatronymicbyname).
The name may conflict with Brian MacFergus (Mar. 1999, Trimaris).
Checky ordinaries may share a tincture with the field as long there is a simple outline where as identifiability is not lost [Rolland von Fries, Jan. 1995].
3: Brénainn mac Fergusa - New Augmentation of Arms forwarded
Sable, two wolf 's heads couped close respectant argent, a base checky sable and argent, and as an augmentation on a canton sinister Or a tyger passant azure.
The submitter was awarded a kingdom augmentation of arms at the Last Court of Lucan and Jana on 01 Oct 2011. A letter was included:
We, <legal name>, known in the SCA as Phillip Reed, <legal name>, known in the SCA as Kiena Steward, Queen of the East, and <legal name>, known in the SCA as Gregor von Heisler, King of the East, grant permission for <legal name>, known in the SCA as Brénainn mac Fergusa, to use the badge of the East Kingdom, "(Fieldless) A tyger passant azure", registered in August 1973 via the East, as an augmentation to his armory. We further grant <legal name> permission to add an augmentation to his armory that conflicts with any armory registered to the Kingdom of the East. We understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once <legal name> 's armory is registered.
Signed by the King, Queen, and Seneschal of the East Kingdom (with legal names), dated 19 Nov 2011.

(Fieldless) An acorn argent crowned Or charged with a rose proper.
Her name and device, Quarterly sable and argent, four acorns counterchanged, were registered May 2008 via the East. The submitter is a duchess (10 Apr 2010) and entitled to bear a crown in her armory.
5: Bronwyn of Wentworth - New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Gules, on a bezant between three spiders Or a pair of scissors sable.
Submitter desires a female name. Bronwyn is found in the IGI Parish Extracts:
BRONWYN N. Female Marriage 26 July 1620 Northaw, Hertford, England JAMES HOWARD Batch: M012881
of Wentworth is a locative byname. Watts, s.n. Wentworth gives the spelling <Went(e)worth(e)>, dated 1335-1573. As an unmarked surname, Wentworth is found as a header form in Bardsley, dated 1593-4 and 1610.
Furthermore, a <Thomas Wentworth de Wentworth, esq.> is mentioned in 'Yorkshire Fines: 1572', Feet of Fines of the Tudor period [Yorks]: part 2: 1571-83 (1888), pp. 13-26 (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=49651&strquery=wentworth). The bynames and place names have not been modernized.
The device is clear of Leofua of Thornridge (June 1973), Gules, on a bezant, a leopard leaping bendwise sinister, head to base, sable. There is one CD for adding the secondary charges, and another for changing the type of tertiary charge by RfS X.4.j.ii. It is also clear of Al-Ishtiaq Khaalid bin al-Kaazim (April 1994, Middle), Gules, on bezant invected, a wingless boar-headed demon statant affronty, facing to sinister and brandishing a sword and an axe sable. There is one CD for the addition of the spiders and another either for changing the type and number of tertiary charges per RfS X.4.j.i, or, if the sword and axe are maintained, for changing the type of tertiary charge under X.4.j.ii.
6: Charitye Dale - New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Argent, on a bend cotised gules a fleur-de-lys between two cinquefoils argent, and on a chief azure a cinquefoil between two fleurs-de-lys argent.
Submitter desires a female name. Language/culture (Elizabethan English) most important. Charitye is a feminine given name found in "English Given Names from 16th and Early 17th C Marriage Records" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/english/parishes/parishes.html), dated 1601. There is one instance of this spelling. Dale is found in "Surnames in Durham and Northumberland, 1521-1615" by Julie Stampnitzky (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juetta/parish/surnames_d.html), dated to 1591.
The armory submission is accompanied by a photocopy of Henry Bedingield and Peter Gwynn-Jones, Heraldry (Chartwell Books, Inc., 1993, p. 62), which depicts a similar device (Argent, on a bend cotised sable a fleur-de-lys between two cinqfoils argent, and on a chief azure a cross botony between two [some sort of plant] Or) that was granted by Wroithesley, Garter King of Arms from 1505-34.The arms on which this device is based are: "Argent, on a bend cotised sable a fleur-de-lys between two cinqfoils argent, and on a chief azure a cross botony between two [some sort of plant] Or".
7: Connor Boddy -New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Quarterly sable and argent, on a cross gules between sinister two bears rampant sable, a sword Or.
Submitter desires a male name. Connor is found s.n. Connor in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, "Names Found in Anglicized Irish Documents" (http://heraldry.sca.org/goodbye.cgi?url=http://www.medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/). There are 36 instances of this spelling, dated between 1597 and 1612. Boddy is a surname found in the IGI Parish Extracts:

DENNICE BODDY Female Christening 6 January 1599 Chalvington, Sussex, England NICHOLAS BODDY Batch: K148021
Anglicized Irish and English can be combined without a step from period practice [Meave Cunningham, 9/2010 LoAR, A-An Tir].
8: Davius Sainct-Jacques - New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Pean, on a sinister glove appaumy argent, a raven proper.
The name was submitted as Davius Saincte-Jacques. Submitter desires a male name. Language/culture (unspecified) most important. Davius is a masculine given name found in the IGI Parish Extracts:
DAVIUS DOODDE Male Marriage 27 June 1579 Irnham, Lincoln, England KATHERINA STRAWSONE Batch: M029413
The name is also found as the name of an English king in The pastime of people, or The chronicles of divers realms; and most especially of the realm of England, by Thomas Frognall Dibdin, published by John Rastell in 1529 (http://books.google.com/books?jtp=93&id=S18JAAAAQAAJ; p. 93):
Davius, brother to Kymor, reynyd next .x. yeer.
Morwidus, son to Dauius, reynyd next.
Saincte-Jacques is intended as a locative byname based on the pattern of naming French places after saints. Examples of this pattern are <de Sainct-Phalle> and <de Sainct-Blaise>, both found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Names from a 1587 Tax Roll from Provins" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/provins1587.html). As documentation that this is a saint 's name, <Sainct Iacques> is found in the French caption for a 1560-80 woodcut entitled "Histoire de Jacques" (http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b55001914n/f2.item). The submitted spelling Jacques is found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Names found in a French Marriage Register, 1595" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/french1595.html), in the name <Jacques Des Vignolles>. Unmarked locatives are rare in period French, but the examples <de Chouy/Chouy>, <de Pimont/Pimont>, and <de Faumont/Faumont> are found in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, "Names Found in Ambleny Registers 1578-1616" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/Ambleny/SurnamesFreq.shtml). If the name cannot be registered without the preposition, the submitter will accept the English name Davius Sainct Jacques. Sainct is a surname found in Bardsley, s.n. Saint, dated 1559. Jacques is found as a surname in the IGI Parish Extracts:
JANETA JACQUES Female Christening 1 May 1580 Collingham, Yorkshire, England Batch: P004141
JOANNE JACQUES Female Marriage 16 October 1592 Bishops Cannings, Wiltshire, England PETER MELSHAM Batch: M014381
KATHARINE JACQUES Female Christening 15 July 1602 Saint Christopher Le Stocks, London, London, England JOHN JACQUES Batch: P020641
The submitted spelling of Saincte had been transcribed incorrectly and did not match the available documentation. The spelling was corrected to the masculine form Sainct found in the documentation. Additional support for unmarked locatives in French include the following: <Jehan Paris> , <Jehan Sainct Denys> [2,3], and <Iehan Lyon> .
 Compte de JEHAN PARIS, receveur des rentes et revenues des terres de Villemor, Maraye, Chaourse, Ysles, Juilly et La Greve en Champagne, appartenant à M r le duc de Bourgoingne, conte de Flandres, d 'Artois et de Bourgoingne, tant en recepte comme en despense, des le dymenche avant la S.

9: Davius Sainct-Jacques - New Badge forwarded
Sable, nine gouttes in chevron inverted argent.
This is clear of the badge of Rhodri ap Hywel (January 1999, Atlantia), Sable goutty d 'eau, a base embattled argent masoned sable, with one CD for the change in arrangement of the primary charges and a CD for removing the secondary charges.
The form stated that the badge was to be associated with "Davius St. Jacques". This was inadvertently omitted from the iLoI.
10: Deaglán Ó Móráin - New Name forwarded & New Device pended
Vert, on a fess sable fimbriated between a lion passant guardant and a Celtic cross three mullets of six points irradiated Or.
Deaglán is found in OC&M, s.n. Declán, which states that there is a Saint Declán who founded the monastery of Ardmore, Countty Waterford, and who is known as 'Patrick of Déisi '. The name is found in Geoffrey Keating 's Foras Feasa ar Éirinn, which was written in Early Modern Irish Gaelic between 1628 and 1636 (http://www.ucc.ie/celt/online/G100054/text073.html):
Do bhíodh trá céile comairce naoimh ag gach airdaicme d 'uaislibh Gaedheal Éireann. Bíodh a fhiadhnaise sin ar na drongaibh-se síos: óir do bhíodh Caoimhghin Glinne dá Loch ag Tuathalachaibh is ag Branachaibh; Maodhóg Fearna ag Uíbh gCinnsealaigh; Moling ag Caomhánachaibh; Fionntain Chluana hEidhneach ag síol Mhórdha; Cainneach Achadh Bó ag Osruighibh; Ruadhán Lothra ag síol gCinnéididh; Deaglán ag na Déisibh; Séanna ag cloinn Bhriain Eatharlach; Gobnuid i Múscraidhe mic Diarmada; Colmán i n-Uíbh Mac Coille; agus mar sin ní bhíodh críoch ná cine i n-Éirinn gan coimairce chinnte naoimh nó bannaoimh aca da dtugaid cádhas is onóir.
(For the Tuathalaigh and the Branaigh had Caoimhghin of Glenn da Loch; the Ui Cinnsealaigh had Maodhog of Fearna; the Caomhanaigh had Moling; the siol Mordha had Fionntain of Cluain Eidhneach; the Ossorians had Cainneach of Achadh Bo; the siol gCinneidhidh had Ruadhan of Lothra; the Deise had Deaglan; the clann Briain of Eatharla had Seanna; Gobnuid was for Muscraidhe Mic Diarmada; Colman for Ui Mac Coile; and similarly there was no district or tribe in Ireland without the special protection of a male or female saint, whom they venerated and honoured.)
Also, the submitter 's legal given name is Deaglan, but proof was not needed because the name was found in period. The inclusion of the accent to match the byname is acceptable to the submitter. The byname, Ó Móráin is grandfathered to the submitter, as it is the registered byname of his father, Seán Ó Móráin (Dec. 1994, East). A letter documenting the legal relationship for use of the grandfather clause has been provided. We note that the submitter 's legal name is very similar, but should be different enough to allow registration.
The submitter has a letter of permission to conflict with his father:
I, <name>, known in the SCA as Sean Ó Móráin give <name>, known in the SCA as Deaglan Ó Móráin permission for his armory, "Vert, on a fess sable fimbriated between a lion passant guardant and a Celtic cross three mullets of six irradiated Or" to look similar to, but not identical to, my armory, "Vert, on a fess sable fimbriated between a wolfhound couchant and a Celtic cross three mullets of six irradiated Or". I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once <name> 's armory is registered.
Signed, <legal name>, dated 10/31/2011
The depiction of the mullets is grandfathered to the submitter via his father.
The byname is also found in period in the Annals of Tigernach: T1168.8 <Mac Raith h-Úa Morain, espoc Conmaicne quieuit> (http://www.ucc.ie/celt/online/G100002.html). The Annals of Tigernach were written in a mixture of a mixture of Latin and Old and Middle Irish.
The correct blazon for his father's device is Vert, on a fess sable fimbriated between an Irish Wolfhound couchant and a Celtic cross, three mullets of six points irradiated Or. The device, however, also conflicts with that of his uncle, Brendan O'Moran (Feb. 1996, East), Vert, on a fess sable fimbriated between a natural tiger passant guardant and a harp three mullets of six points irradiated Or. The device is being pended while we attempt to obtain a letter of permission to conflict from Brendan's widow.
11: Donovan Shinnock and Lillias de Cheryngton - New Household Name forwarded
Company of the Fox and Tree
Meaning (unspecified) most important. The pattern <object> + <object> for an inn sign (e.g., "Hand and Plow" and "Rose and Crowne") is found in "Comparison of Inn/Shop/House names found London 1473-1600 with those found in the ten shires surrounding London in 1636" by Margaret Makafee (http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~grm/signs-1485-1636.html). This article includes such items as cups, harrows, crosses, and anchors. Both fox and tree are standard heraldic charges that could be found in such an inn sign. Fox is dated 1300 in the OED in this spelling, with fox and foxe both in use after that time. The surname Fox or Foxe is also found in "English Names from pre-1600 Brass Inscriptions" (http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/brasses/). Tree is found in the MED [1532(c1385) Usk TL (Thynne:Skeat) 22/37: A tree ofte set in dyvers places wol nat by kynde endure to bringe forth frutes.], seen at http://ets.umdl.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED46870. It is also a surname dated 1583 in Bardsley, s.n. Tree.
Company is an English translation of a designator used in "the Company of the Garter", found in Juliana de Luna, "Medieval Secular Order Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/OrderNames/Courtly_Orders_and_Awards.shtml). Period examples include the 14th-15th century Anglo-French <Compaigne del Gartier> and <la Compaignie de la Gartier>. The submitted spelling is found in the OED, s.n. Company dated 1340, 1568, and 1607, among other dates. There was a recent registration of "Company of the Flame and Cauldron" (registered to Philipp von Eisenberg, Nov. 2011, A-Atenveldt). However, neither that submission nor the current one included support for the use of Company with an <of the X and Y>-type inn-sign pattern. Neither the commentary on that item nor the LoAR included this information. As a result, we request the assistance of the College to support this designator with this pattern.
12: Eadaoin inghean Choinnigh - New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Per bend sinister argent and gules, a fox sejant to sinister and a horse passant counterchanged.
Submitter desires a female name. No major changes. Edaoin is a form of the name Etain, found as a header form in OC&M: "Etain was the daughter of Finghin Mor Mac Cartaigh, who flourished in the 13th century." The name is also found in Mari Elsbeth nic Brian, "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Etain.shtml), with the submitted form appropriate for 1200-1700. inghean Choinnigh is a patronym meaning 'daughter of Choinnigh '. The patrhonym is found in "Annals of the Four Masters" (B), Part 2, Link 1093, 1098.25 (http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T100005B/inde). This byname has been registered previously:
Submitted as Cairistiona inghean Choinnaig, the patronymic was a hypothetical genitive form of Cainneach. The Annals of the Four Masters (B), entry M1098.24 lists Mac Giolla Choinnigh I Urdhain; we have changed the name to Cairistiona inghean Choinnigh to match this documented Early Modern Irish Gaelic form. [Cairistiona inghean Choinnigh, July 2004, A-Trimaris]
The standard Early Modern Irish Gaelic form of the given name is <Éadaoin>. Accents may be omitted from Gaelic names so long as this is done consistently throughout the name. The name appears to be constructed properly for Early Modern Irish Gaelic. It was thought that the name did not conflict with Éadaoin ingen Chanacáin (Apr. 2006, AEthelmearc).
13: François Dubé - New Name forwarded
The name was submitted as François Dube. Submitter desires a male name. François is found eight times in this spelling in Aryanhwy merch Catmael, "Names from Artois, 1601" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/1601masc.html). Dube is a French and English surname found in the IGI Parish Extracts:
MARIA DUBE Female Christening 1628 Barr, Bas-Rhin, France Batch: C824201French and English can be combined with French without a step from period practice. The submitter would prefer the spelling Dubé if it can be supported.
ANNE DUBE Female Marriage 10 NOV 1614 Haxey, Lincoln, England Batch: M029082
MATHEW DUBE Male Marriage 03 FEB 1577 East Malling, Kent, England Batch: M131581
The submitter's preferred spelling, Dubé, was found in the gray period: <M. Paul Dubé> is the author of a book published in 1650 , and a <Damoiselle Dubé> is found in a book published in 1641 .
 <M. Paul Dubé>, Histoire de deux enfans monstrueux nées en la paroisse de Septfonds, au duché de S. Fergeau, le 20 juillet 1649, (http://books.google.com/books/about/Histoire_de_deux_enfans_monstrueux_n%C3%A9es.html?id=EV2fZwEACAAJ).
 Claude Malingre, Histoires tragiques de nostre temps: Dans lesquelles se voyent plusieurs belles maximes d'Estat & quantité d'exemples fort memorables, de constance, de courage, de generosité, p. 468 (http://books.google.com/books?id=s1XC8vwAowAC).
The name was been changed to meet the submitter's request. However, there is another submission in progress, François Dupuis, found on Æthelmearc's Nov. 2011 xLoI. This name may conflict on the basis of the sound of the surname. However, we are forwarding this item nonetheless, and will pursue a letter of permission to conflict if it becomes necessary.
14: Gaspar Perreira - New Device forwarded
Azure, a sea-lion contourny Or and on a chief engrailed argent four pears vert.
His name was registered Sept. 2010 via the East.
The surname means 'pear tree', so this is a lovely cant.
15: Ghita di Solari - Resub Device forwarded
Per pale gules and Or, two seahorses erect respectant counterchanged.
Ghita 's device resubmission for Per pale Or and gules, a sun and a chief rayonny counterchanged was returned on the East 's September 2011 Letter of Decision:
Ghita 's name was registered on the Aug. 2010 LoAR (East). Her device resubmission was pended in order to give time to obtain a letter of permission to conflict with the device of Liudmila Vladimirova doch ' (April 2004, Caid), Per pale Or and gules, a sun in splendour counterchanged. Sadly, the letter could not be obtained, although permission had been tentatively granted. As a result, the device is being returned. It should also be noted that, although it was blazoned on the form as a sun in splendor, the sun in the submission was the generic kind. A sun in splendor has a face.
The device has been redesigned.
16: Hette Fuhrmann - New Name forwarded
No major changes. Sound (Fuhrmann most important) most important. Hette is from Talan Gwynek, "15th C German Women's Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/germ15f.html). Fuhrmann is from Bahlow/Gentry, s.n. Fuhrmann, which notes that "Fischaet observed as early as the 16th C, that 'All Silesians are called Fuhrmann '". The submitter will not accept changing the given name to Hedda or Hedde.
The given name appears only once in the cited article. Bahlow/Gentry glosses the surname as 'waggoner,carter'. A variant spelling, Furman, is dated 1392 in the same entry, and is also found in "German Names from Nürnberg, 1497" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/surnamesnurna-m.html). The submitted spelling and variants such as Fuhrman and Furman are found in the IGI Parish Extracts:

17: Jaquelinne Sauvageon - New Request for Name Reconsideration forwarded
Her name was originally submitted in Meridies as Jaquelinne Sauvageon. However, it was registered on the Feb. 2002 LoAR (Meridies) as Jacquelinne Sauvageon, with no explanation of why the change was made. She asks that the spelling of the given name be restored to what was submitted. (She only found out about the spelling change after her device was registered in April 2009.) The desired spelling, Jaquelinne, is found in Colm Dubh, "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris" (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/paris.html#J). This article includes a <Jaquelinne l'Anquetine>.
The desired spelling of the given name is found in the IGI Parish Extracts:
JAQUELINNE GELLAIN Female Christening 20 April 1576 St-Martin, Pierreval, Seine-Maritime, France Batch C033714
JAQUELINNE POTY Female Christening 29 March 1593 Saint-Armand, Verdun-Sur-Meuse, Meuse, France Batch C012686
<Sauvageon> is grandfathered to the submitter. It was also found in late-period French, in "Traicté chymique contenant les préparations, usages, facultez et doses des plus célèbres et usitez medicamens chymiques" par G. Sauvageon (1643) (http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k5824766w).
18: Lottieri Malocchio - New Name forwarded
Submitter desires a male name. Language/culture (Late-period Italian, use of "Malocchio") most important. Lottieri is found in the Online Catasto of 1427 according to "Italian Names from Florance, 1427" by Ferrante LaVolpe (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ferrante/catasto/). This name appears twice in a list of male heads of household. Malocchio is a small northern Italian town in the commune of Buggiano (Pistoia province, region of Tuscany). A church there, S. Frediano di Malocchio, is mentioned in registry of the Iucchese Diocese of 1260, per Emanuele Repetti's 1833 "Dizionario Geographico Fisico della Toscana vol III. (http://www.archeogr.unisi.it/repetti/dbms/sk.php?id=2575 or http://books.google.com/books?id=wfsC-xZnUnwC, pp. 33-4). It is also referenced in "Vecchi castelli di Valdinievole: guida storica-artistica di Buggiano, Stignano, Colle, Malocchio, Borgo a Buggiano" by Alfredo Michelotti (http://library.getty.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=223416), but a copy of this source could not be obtained. [The earliest instance I found for this locative in a quick search is p. 396 of Istoria dell 'eroiche attioni di Ugo il Grande, Duca della Toscana, di ... by Placido Puccinelli, published 1664; http://books.google.com/books?id=AxpAAAAAcAAJ. It should be noted that malocchio also means 'evil eye ' or 'mad eye '. I got more relevant hits searching for "malocchio" in combination with the region or commune name. - Lillia] The submitter would like assistance from the College to justify an unmarked locative in Italian. There is a 2001 precedent that states that unmarked surnames are fine in late period, but that may have been specific to unmarked patronyms.
Assistance finding better support for the surname is appreciated.
19: Martin of Carolingia - New Name forwarded & New Device forwarded
Per fess embattled argent and azure, issuant from the line of division a bat-winged demi-human, wings displayed, sable.
Submitter desires a male name. Martin is a German masculine given name that appears in "German Names from Nürnberg, 1497" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/german/nurnberg1497.html). There is one instance of this spelling, which is found s.n. Mertin. of Carolingia is a locative byname based on Carolingia, Barony of (June 1973, East). The submitter very much wants the surname Wasserspeier or der Wasserspeier instead, but this couldn 't be documented as a name or as a word appearing in period. Any help documenting his preferred byname(s) is appreciated. Demons were disallowed for SCA registration on the August 2011 Cover Letter. However, the submitter went through the consultation process at Pennsic for the device, but the corresponding name submission had to be completed after War. It is hoped that this submission will be allowed on the basis that it was technically submitted (and paid for) prior to the ban being published in October, and because it can be blazoned using standard heraldic terms in accordance with RfS VII.5, Compatible Monsters.
No grace period was given before the ban on demons took effect, so this decision is in effect despite not having been in place when the consultation was done. However, as the device can be blazoned in standard heraldic terms as with other constructed monsters, it was thought that this design could be reproduced. The device was redrawn in order to lower the line of devision and to remove the horns, which were not on the submitter's original concept art. The submitter approved the changes.

21: Matilde de Cadenet - Resub Device forwarded
Per bend sinister gules and checky Or and gules, in bend a rabbit rampant Or and a card pique azure.
Her name was registered Oct. 2011 via the East. Her original device submission, Per bend sinister gules and checky gules and Or, a rabbit rampant Or and a card pique azure, was returned on the same letter:
This device is returned for violating section VIII.3 of the Rules for Submissions, which requires that "Elements must be used in a design so as to preserve their individual identifiability...Identifiable elements may be rendered unidentifiable by...marginal contrast..." The checky here is drawn such that there are gules checks against the gules portion of the field, leading to the possibility of the line of division being misidentified as indented instead of plain. Please advise the submitter to either redraw the checks in such a way that has good contrast with the plain portion of the field, or to change to checky Or and gules.
The submitter has chosen to take the latter suggestion.
22: Nicolette Bonhomme -New Badge Change forwarded

23: Séamus mac Corcráin - New Name forwarded
Submitter desires a male name. Séamus is an Early Modern Irish Gaelic masculine given name found in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Seamus.shtml), with Annals dates of 1398-1608. Corcráin is the genitive form of the masculine given name Corcrán, which is found as a Middle Irish Gaelic name (ibid., http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Corcran.shtml), with Annals dates of 548-1040. Woulfe, s.n. Mac Corcráin lists 16th and 17th century Anglicized Irish forms for this name, including <M 'Corcrane> and <M 'Corkrane>, which suggests that this name survived into the Early Modern Irish period in some form. This is further supported by Mari 's article, s.n. Fedelmid, Feidlimid/Feidhlimidh, Feidhlim, Feilim(http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Feidhlimidh.shtml), which includes the name <Feilim Ó Corcráin> in the raw data, with an Annals date of 1522. The formation of a simple patronym using mac and the genitive form of the father 's given name is supported by Sharon Krossa, "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#simplepatronymicbyname).

It was founded in 138 BC by Roman Legionnaires, and ruled by the Visigoths from 476-625 AD (http://www.valenciavalencia.com/aboutvalencia/1-valencia-history.htm). This locative byname is found in a Latin book published in 1580, De Idololatria Contra Sectariorvm Contvmelias Disputatio: Una Cum Apologetico Adversus Iacobum Heerbrandum Lutheranum; et Confutatione Calumniarum, quibus idem spongiam quandam suam levißimam replevit. Omnia nunc emendatiora, eodemque volumine comprehensa by Gregorius de Valentia (http://books.google.com/books?id=ZOQ7AAAAcAAJ&pg=PP5).

The submitted spelling appears in the Latin text of "Commentariorum theologicorum tomi quatuor" published in 1619. (http://books.google.com/books?id=MJw-AAAAcAAJ).
Commenters questioned if this name conflicts with Valentina la Valente (Feb. 1992, Caid).
ITEMS PENDED ON EARLIER LETTERS
26: Jehanne de Troyes - New Badge forwarded
Sable, between the attires of a stag's head caboshed a Mogen David all within a bordure Or.
His name and device, Per bend sinister purpure and vert, a Star of David argent and a lion's head erased quarterly argent and sable, were registered Aug. 1994, via the East. The badge was pended on the Sept. 2011 Letter of Decision:
Although voided charges are typically not permitted anywhere but the center of the design, this does not apply to charges for which the voiding is part of the definition, as we have here.
If the Mogen David is considered to be the primary charge, and not a secondary charge, and if there is no CD for the voiding and interlacing of the mullet (precedent could not be found for this), this badge conflicts with Bergental, Barony of (April 1987, East), Sable, a mullet of six points within a laurel wreath, all within a bordure Or. The badge is being pended while we attempt to obtain a letter of permission to conflict.
The letter of permission was not obtained. However, it is hoped that the Mogen David is considered to be a secondary charge. If commenters think that it is no, then we will pursue the letter of permission to conflict from Bergental at a later time.
27: Nadezhda Voronova - New Name returned & New Device returned
Per pale sable and gules, an orle of mice statant argent.
Her name and device were pended on the Oct. 2011 Letter of Decision:
Submitter desires a female name. No major changes. Language (Russian) most important. Culture (Russian) most important. The first name is most important to the submitter. Both elements, and the formation of the patronym are found in Wickenden (http://heraldry.sca.org/paul/). Nadezhda is dated 1238. Voronova is a feminine patronymic formed from the name Voron, dated to 1398. The masculine patronym Voronov is dated 1573.
This name potentially conflicts with Nadezhda Toranova (Mar. 2001, An Tir), now known as Æringunnr Yrsudóttir. The name and device are being pended while we try to obtain a letter of permission to conflict.
We were unable to obtain the letter of permission to conflict. As a result, the name is being returned. Unfortunately, kingdom cannot create holding names, so the device must also be returned.
28: Archebios Achaios - New Device forwarded
Argent, a thunderbolt vert enflamed proper.
His name was forwarded and his device pended on the Sept. 2011 Letter of Decision:
The device conflicts with Endless Hills, Barony of (August 1999, AEthelmearc), Argent, a thunderbolt gules. The device has been pended while we await the letter of permission to conflict that has been promised.
The letter of permission from the current baron and baroness of Endless Hills has been obtained:
I, [legal name], known in the SCA as Barbary Rose of Endless Hills, and I, [legal name], known in the SCA as Gunnarr of Endless Hills, given [submitter's legal name], known in the SCA as Archebios Achaios, permission for his armory "Argent, a thunderbolt vert enflamed proper" to look similar to, but not identical to, the Barony of Endless Hill's armory, "Argent, a thunderbolt gules". I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once [submitter]'s armory is registered.
Signed with legal signatures, each dated 07 Mar 2012
