Letter of Intent Kingdom of Atenveldt

Unto Andrewe Laurel; Lillia Pelican; Brunissende Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms.

Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.

1. Alpin Hunter: NEW DEVICE

Vert a quiver with three arrows between three hunting horns argent strung and banded Or.

The name was registered June 2015.

2. Archibald Henderson: NEW DEVICE
Azure, on a lion rampant Or between three mascles argent, a mascle azure.

The name was registered June 2015.

Consider Salamon ben Mosse de Aguilar: Azure, a lion rampant Or between three Jewish hats argent. There is 1 DC for changing hats to mascles argent and 1 DC for adding the tertiary charge.

3. Clarice la Costuriere d'Avignon: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Azure, in pale three keys fesswise, a bordure embattled agent.

The name is French.
Clarice is a female given name found in "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris," Colm Dubh, (as Clarice de Saint-Pôl).
A cousturiere is a female tailor or dressmaker; it is found in "Occupational By-Names in the 1292 Tax Role of Paris," Colm Dubh,
Avignon is a city in France, found in "Draft: names in the 1292 census of Paris," Sara L. Uckelman,
This <given + byname + locative> name construction is an acceptable SENA format, and it should prevent conflict with the registered name Ysabel Clarice d'Avignon via SEND NPN3 D. Standards for Relationship Conflict: "... Adding an element no in the protect name is generally enough to remove relation conflict." (
The client desires a feminine name; she desires a French name, and culture is most important (9th-11th C. Old French/Anglo-Saxon).

The device is reminiscent of and clear of that for Wilhelm von Schlüssel, Azure, a fess argent, three keys fesswise in pale counterchanged.

4. Finnan of Holywood: NEW NAME and DEVICE

Sable, a serpent in annulo vorant of its own tail argent and enfiled by a sword proper, on a chief argent an arrow reversed sable.

Finnan is a male Irish Gaelic name, with Finnan Ua Sibhlenas named as the king of the Ui-Echach of Muaidh, Ó Corráin and Maguire's Irish Names lists Fínán as the name of eleven early Irish saints, including Saint Fínán Cam of Kinnitty (p. 99). Finán also appears in "100 Most Popular Men's Names in Early Medieval Ireland," compiled by Heather Rose Jones,, which deals with Irish Gaelic name elements prior to the pre-Norman period (pre-12th C). The client wants the spelling Finnan, not Finan. Fortunately, Sans Repose Herald notes that Finnan in the above Annals of Ulster citation is the modern English translation, not the actual Annals of Ulster entry, and there it is listed in Latin in the genitive form Finnani; this Latin citation should be sufficient to register Finnan in the vernacular form. The Annals entry referred to by Sans Repose reads as follows:
U660.1 -- Obitus Finnani episcopi filii Rimedo, & Colman Glinne Da Locho quieuit, & Daniel episcopus Cinn Garadh. (
U660.1 - Death of bishop Finnán son of Rímid; and Colmán of Glenn dá Locha rested, and Daniél, bishop of Cenn Garad. (
Finnan also appears in the Annals of Connacht dated to 1298, although it may be genitive:
1298.8 -- Espocoite Cluana do gabail d'abbaid Cilli Becan.i. Uilliam h. Finnan isin bliadain-sin. (
1298.8 - The bishopric of Clonmacnoise was assumed by Uilliam O Finnain, the Abbot of Kilbeggan, in this year. (
Holywood is an English byname, with the monastery of Holywood Priory founded before 640 AD on the site of the present ruins of the medieval Old Priory in Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland (; it was rebuilt at least once during period.
Additionally, Monasticon Hibernicum: or, a history of the abbeys, priories, and other religious houses in Ireland…, Volume 1, by Mervyn Archdall, A.M., 1873, p. 273 County of Down, lists Hollywood, "on the bay of Carrickfergus, three miles north-east of Belfast. A monastery was founded here for friars of the third order of St. Francis…" Footnote 23 "Hollywood recte Holywood" which has much more info on the history and a date of "middle of the seventh century".,+Ireland+-ce lebrities+-movies+-tv+-television+-film+-shoppingmap&source=bl&ots=nZ_lrN62N8&sig=0d0Gmi0u9acU_sG6Z NrgMMsAllg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCEQ6AEwAjgKahUKEwjqqrOal4PJAhXHez4KHQ2KAnM#v=onepage&q=Holywood&f=false
According to SENA Appendix C, Gaelic and English name elements can be combined, 550 through 1600.

The sword is not surmounting, completely lying on top of the serpent, but rather going through the center of the circle formed by the serpent; I think the term is enfiling, but any help in this matter would be appreciated.

5. Isabeau della Farfalla: BADGE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, September 2015
