Sound (Jeanette/Jonet) most important.

Per saltire Or and argent, within a bordure a hind statant regardant, vert

 

 


7: Otto der Schwarzherz - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

The submitter's original submission, Otto das Shwarze Herz, was returned on the September 2010 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2010-08-lop/1009-lor.html) with the following:

 

The Name is RETURNED for improper name construction. The proper construction of the byname "blackhearted" would be "Schwarzherz", however, because submitter does not accept major changes, this name must be returned. The Device is RETURNED for lack of a name to send it up with.

 

 

Submitter has cleared the issue by resubmitting with the suggested byname construction.

[Otto] - H.Bahlow, p.359. Header: Otte, ..., are popular forms of the old Ger. emperor name Otto, ..., made famous by Otto the Great (10th c.)

 

[Schwarze] - H.Bahlow, p.462. Header: Schwar(d)t,...,LGer forms of Schwar(t)z, Schwarze, ..., 1288.

 

[Herz] - H. Bahlow, p.219. Header: Herz.


8: Robert Magnus - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2007, via the Outlands.

Or, a raptor's foot erased gules and on a base sable a mullet of eight points Or

 

Previous device was returned on the February 2010 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2010/02/10-02lar.html) with the following:

 

This device is returned for blurring the line between a base and a per fess line of division. A per fess line would divide the field in half, a base would cover at most the lower third of the field. On resubmission, it should be drawn as one or the other.

 

Submitter has cleared the issue by drawing the resubmission with a shorter division to make it 'a base'.


9: Rónán Sheapallh - New Name & New Device

Quarterly sable and vert, a chevron argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (13th C. Irish) most important.

The submitter's name and device were returned on the October 2009 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2009-09-lop/0910-lor.html) with the following:

 

 

The submitter's chosen surname (Rónán Suipeal) is not adequately documented with dated spellings. Neither of Mac Lysaght's books are acceptable as primary sources (LoAR 07/2007) as they deal with modern and anglicised spellings of names; if the submitter can find a dated spelling of the surname [Suipeal] we will be able to send this forward. The device is returned for conflict with Gyronny Or and azure, a dragon segreant argent (Brychan Tammas, 01/96 East), only one change for the field. Dragons Rampant and Segregant do not differ significantly.

 

 

Submitter cleared the device conflict by submitting a device with a different field and charge. Submitter cleared the surname conflict by providing a surname of a different spelling and additional documentation.

10: Sean O Faolain - New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister Or and azure, a wolf and a bordure counterchanged

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 16th Century Irish.
Sound (undefined) most important.

[Faolan] - 'Index of Name in Irish Annals: Fáelán (Faolán)' by Kathleen M. O'Brien (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Faelan.shtml)

The name was changed at Kingdom from Sean O'Faolan based on the following commentary:

 

The documentation given is for the Irish Gaelic form of the name. The form submitted here is neither Irish Gaelic <Sean O Faolain> (without

 

accents) or Anglicized <Shane O Folane> / <Shane O Fylane>.

Using that documentation for Irish Gaelic, and since the submitter seems to want to drop accents, I would suggest <Sean O Faolain> as the closest to what he has submitted here. (<Sea/n O/ Fa/ola/in> with

accents.)

 

 

 


11: Tyrfingr von Wolfsberg - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2003, via the Outlands.

Quarterly gules and Or, a cross potent quarterly Or and azure, in a canton sinister a cross couped gules
