  1. Alaric der Jaeger & Adelaide Ehrhardt for the House of the Winged Ankh. Household Name and Household Badge. (Fieldless) An Ankh argent winged sable.

  2. Alaric's name was registered March of 1996 via the Outlands. Adelaide's name was registered February of 1998 via the Outlands. The household name is based on the basic concept of inn sign names, which is that people would refer to the house by describing the armory hanging over the door. A house with an argent stag on the sign would be called the House of the White Hart. The wings on this badge are significant. Could not the house this hangs on be referred to as the House of the Winged Ankh?

  3. Brian macc Fáeláin. Name and Device. Per saltire sable and gules, a tyger rampant argent between three mullets of eight points Or.

  4. The client submitted an email from Talan Gwynek, Fause Losenge Herald Extraordinary documenting the name as follows: "Brian" OC&M s.n. Brian dated to 1014 and 1260. Also the Annal of Tegernach for the year 1118 note a "Brían mac Muchada" These annuals are available on-line at "http://ww.ccc.ie/celt/online/G100002/". "Fáelán" OC&M s.n Fáelán note that three kings of Leinster named Fáelán between the 7th and 9th centuries. Talan recommend the version of "macc" with two "c"s as that it was the form most likely to be used in the time period requested.

  5. Brighid inghean Fhearghusa. Name.

  6. The client submitted "Brighid" OC& M , p. 36, s.n Brigit. "Fearghus" ibid. p.97. The byname has been lenited "Fhearghusa".

  7. Castellana Alcon. Name.

  8. The client submitted "Castellana" from Spanish Names from the late 15th Century by Juliana de Luna (Julie Smith) "Names from the Account Books of Isabel la Catolica (1477 -1504, mostly 1483 - 1504) ("http://www.s-gabriel.org/juliana/isabella/WomenFullNames.html") "Alcon" Spanish Names from Late 15th Century by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) Other Surnames ("http://www.s-gabriel.org/juliana/isabella/surnames-other.html")

  9. Conchobar mac Eoin. Badge. Argent, a claymore inverted bendwise between two thistles in bend sinister sable.

  10. His name registered in April of 1999 via the Outlands.

  11. Craig Joyful. Name and Device. Or, a handgun rest azure surmounted by a chevron inverted gules.

  12. Client submitted: "Craig" Modern name allowance. A copy of his AZ driver's license was included. "Joyful" is found in Reaney & Wilson p. 258. dated to 1248.

  13. Dafydd Morrison. Badge. Per pale sable and Or, a cross of Santiago counterchanged

  14. His name was registered in October of 1992 via the Outlands.

  15. Daniel Larke of Fletcher's Glen. Name and Device. Quarterly azure and argent, five crosses crosslet in saltire counterchanged.

  16. The client submitted the following: "Daniel" index of Withycombe. P. 24 s.n. Daniel-Curia Regis Rolls 1189. "Larke" R&W. pg. 272 Ralph Lark 1275 "Fletcher" R&W p. 171 Robert le Fletcher.

  17. Danitsa Nemanja. Name and Device. Gyronny sable and argent, on a chevron purpure fimbriated three mullets Or.

  18. She enclosed a copy of her birth certificate showing her modern given name to be Danitsa. She would prefer Danica (with a V over the C) which she claims is an "un-americanized Serbian spelling", but she was unable to provide adequate documentation of Dani{cv}a being used as a given name for a human being in period. "Nemanja" Woislav M Petrovitch, Hero tales and Legends of the Serbians London 1914.

  19. Donnchadh mac Céadach. Appeal of registered Name and New Device. Per bend sinister vert and argent, two arrows inverted in saltire Or and a thistle proper.

  20. His name was originally submitted as "Donnchadh MacKeith", which was then registered as "Donnchadh mac Shitich" in July of 2000. The justification for appealing the name registered and changing it to this one (or something similar) is that the client was very dissatisfied with the name registered to him, and the mispronunciation of it that naturally arose because of the way that it was spelled. We felt that the name should be changed to something that the client was happier with, while still being as authentic as possible. He is more concerned with the sound (and spelling) than having a name derived from "Keith". "Donnchadh" is grandfathered. "Caédach" OC&M page 50, s.n. Cétach. He will accept major changes.

  21. Eleanor de Wyte. Name.

  22. "Eleanor" Withycombe p. 96 s.n. Eleanor. Eleanor of Castile (d. 1290). "de Wyte" R&W. p. 486 s.n. White.

  23. Evelyn Macrae. Name and Device. Argent, a dragon involved in annulo purpure, on a chief gules three pheons inverted argent

  24. "Evelyn": submitters modern name. A copy of NM Driver's License enclosed. "Macrae" Black, p. 560 s.n. Macrae.

  25. Feichín MacAlinden. Name.

  26. "Feichín" O'C&M, p.94, as a modern form of "Fech{i'}ne". "Feichin is in Woulfe pg 185: (Feicin g. id. Fehin, (Festus); dim. Of Fiac, a raven. MacAlinden is in ibid, page 374, under the heading Mac Giolla Findéin, not dated. It looks like both name elements are in their modern forms.

  27. Gervais la moraer de Narbonne. Name and Device. Or, three piles inverted conjoined at the point issuant from dexter chief gules, overall a sword sable.

  28. "Gervais" Arval Benicouer (Josh Mittleton) "French/Occitan names from the XIII Century" "http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/ramon/occitan/". No documentation was provided for the byname. A possible alternate blazon: Gyronny issuant from dexter chief Or and gules, a sword sable.

  29. Gotschalg Sudermann. Name and Device. Barry erminois and sable, a bend embattled and a bordure vert.

  30. "Gotschalg" Medieval German Given Names from Silesia by Talan Gwynek (Brian Scott). http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/bahlow_v.htm "Sudermann" is found in Brechenmacher p.II:701, dated to 1545, and is a header in Bahlow for 'a person living toward the south.'

  31. Ian Lindsay MacRae. Device Resubmission. Gyronny sable and argent, a wyvern erect maintaining a sheaf of arrows inverted and a bow within a bordure gules.

  32. His name was registered in September of 1998 via the Outlands. His previous submission Argent, a wyvern sable maintaining a sheaf of arrows inverted and a bow, a bordure gules was returned by Laurel for conflicting with Reinhardt von Berchtesgaden, Or, a wyvern erect sable within a bordure gules.

  33. Jane Gude of Wylshire. Name.

  34. "Jane" is found 26 times in the article "Late 16th C Glouchestershire Names," http://www.sit.wisc.edu/~sfriedemann/names/late16.htm, making it the 7th most popular name. R&W s.n. "Good" have an "Andrew Gude" in 1537, as well as a "Thomas Wylshire" 1583 s.n. Wiltshire.

  35. Katrein Adler. Device. Per bend sinister argent and azure two cinquefoils counterchanged.

  36. Her name was registered in July of 2001 via the Outlands.

  37. Kolfinna Knýtir. Name.

  38. "Kolfinna" is found in Viking Names found in the Landnámabók by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara Friedemann). http://www.sit.wisc.edu/~sfriedemann/names/landnamabok.htm "Knýtir", meaning "Knitter" is found in Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (Sara Friedemann). http://www.sit.wisc.edu/~sfriedemann/names/vikbynames.htm

  39. Kymme Godric. Name and Device. Per saltire sable and vert, an elephant statant trumpeting, an orle Or.

  40. The client submitted an email from Talan Gwynek, Fause Lonzenge HE. I attempted to put the whole letter on this LoI, and it took up a whole page, so I have chosen what seem to be the most important parts: Kymme: "Reaney & Wilson s.n. Kemm cite "Kima" 1221, "Kemma Scriuener" 1311, "John Kymme" 1276, and "Thomas Kemme" 1332. They derive the name from an unattested Old English feminine name "Cymme", perhaps a pet form of the relatively common "Cyneburh". Whether it is or not, what appears to be a related masculine name is attested in the genitive case as "Cymmi" (Mats Redin, Studies on Uncompounded Personal Names in Old English, Uppsala, 1919; p. 133). It is worth noting that "Cyneburh" remained in use through the SCA period. The particular spelling is consistent with the name's having been written in the early 12th century by someone trained in the Old English scribal tradition. Cecily Clark ('Domesday Book - A Great Red-Herring: Thoughts on Some Late-Eleventh-Century Orthographies', in Words, Names and History: Selected Papers, ed. Peter Jackson, D.S. Brewer, Cambridge, 1995) shows that the native spelling traditions were quite tenacious during the first two generations after the Conquest, citing spellings from a variety of early 12th century sources. Thus, although the Latinized "Kymma" is somewhat likelier, a spelling preserving the "-e" of the Old English weak feminine declension is no out of the question. Interchange of \K\ and \C\ already occurred in pre-Conquest Old English; e.g., Boehler (loc. Cit.) notes the same place appearing both as (Kyneburga C=E6stre) and (Cyneburge c=E6stre) in the 10th century. After the Conquest \K\ became more frequent (Roger Lass, 'Phonology and Morphology', in The Cambridge History of the English Language, Vol. II, 1066-1476, ed. Norman Blake, Cambridge, 1992; pp. 37-8). Lass notes that it was especially common before \I\ (among others> and that by the mid-12th century \I\ and \y\ were already interchangeable in some dialects. Thus, we might reasonably expect to see any of "Cymme", "Cymma", "Kymma", "Kymme", "Kimma", and "Kimme" in the earlier 12th century, depending on the degree of Latinization and of Continental influence." The documentation he provided for "Godric" was almost as long, but I choose to simplify it to: "Godric" is found in R&W, s.n. Goodrich, dated by citation; Ralph Godric 1199.

  41. Leonore of Black Diamond. Device Resubmission. Azure, a boot and on a chief Or, three lozenges sable.

  42. Her name was registered February of 1999 via the Outlands. Her previous device submission, "Azure, a boot Or.", was returned by Laurel in February of 1999 for conflict with Pascal Foljambe Azure, a leg couped Or. "We grant no difference between a leg and a boot, so there is no countable difference." It also conflicted with Eveline of Shoreham, "Azure, a slipper bendwise sinister Or.", with one CD for orientation.

  43. Lommán Mac an t-saoir. Name.

  44. "Lommán" is found in O'C&M p. 124. "Mac an t-saoir" is found in Black. p.519, s.n. MacIntyre.

  45. Lysbette Richelieu du Plessis. Name.

  46. The client provides printouts from three websites to document her name. "Lysbette" can be found in an article from the St. Gabriel website titled Flemish Names from Bruges, by Luana de Grood (Loveday Toddekyn). http://www.s-gabriel.org/docs/bruges It is an analysis of the name data from Histoire de la Gilde des Archers de Saint Sebastien de la Ville de Bruges by Henri Godar, Bruges, 1947. Both http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/13047a.htm and http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/people/A0841830.html document Armand-Jean du Plessis, Duke de Richelieu, 1585-1642, a Cardinal and minister of France during the reign of Louis XIII. Plessis is a period location, being 20km north of Paris. Richelieu is also a locative. Are double locatives both period and non-presumptuous? If Lysbette is surnamed Richelieu, the second surname, Plessis, is claiming her to: 1) be the landed owner of Plessis which would be presumptuous; 2) to be from Plessis which would be a surname plus a locative, which is possible; or 3) this is a double surname which is possible but not necessarily likely.

  47. Massimiliano Pontieri de Sasso. Name and Device. Argent crusilly gules, on a bend cotissed azure three bells palewise Or.

  48. The client documents "Massimiliano" using the Columbia encylopedia (Massimiliano Sforza, 1493-1530). "Pontieri" is found in Fucilla p.113 and p.175. "di Sasso" Fucilla p14, p.31, & p. 99

  49. Regana van Kortrijk. Device. Azure, a squirrel argent.

  50. Her name was registered in July of 2001 via the Outlands.

  51. Robartach de Montáin. Name and Device. Per chevron abased sable and argent, a dragon segreant contourny wings displayed and inverted argent and a roundel purpure.

  52. "Robartach" is found in OC&M, p.156. "de Montáin" is found in Woulfe, p. 268

  53. Rothin in Flamskä. Name and Device. Argent, a chevron fracted counter-ermine, in chief a gendy flower gules.

  54. "Rothin" is found in Germanic Names in the Low Lands http://www.keesn.nl/names/name3_en.htm "in Flamska" is found in Viking Bynames found in the Landnamabok http://www.sit.wisc.edu/~sfriedemann/names/vikbynames.htm

  55. Thorvaldr Vakkerfjell Thórólfsson. Change of registered name.

  56. His name is currently registered as Thorvaldr Gángläre Vakkerfjell (11/92 East). "Thórólfsson" is found in Geir Bassi p. 16. The rest is grandfathered.

  57. William Hawke of Warwickshire. Name and Device. Or, on a pale cotised sable three hawk's bells argent.

  58. "William" is found in Withycombe. P. 293. "Hawke" is found in Reaney & Wilson. p.221. "Warwickshire is found in English Place Names by A.D. Mills, p.347, under the heading Warwick: "Warwickshire is first referred to in the 11th century."

  59. Zoraya de Navarre. Change of registered name.

  60. Her name was registered as Zoraya of Navarre in February of 2001, but it was stated in the LoAR that the Spanish form Zoraya de Navarre would be acceptable and the client would like the name changed to that form.

I count 20 new personal names, 15 new devices, 2 new badges, 1 new household name, 1 new household badge, and 2 changes of registered name for a total of 41 new actions and a check to Laurel for $164.00. In addition there is 1 name appeal and 2 device resubmissions.
