Unto Their Royal Majesties Ivan and Ian'ka; Baron Seamus MacDade, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

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

Please have commentary to me on the proposed submissions for the November Letter of Intent by 20 November 2018. Thank you!

Please consider the following submissions for the November 2018 Atenveldt LoI:

Gunni Blóðøx >(Atenveldt/Tir Ysgithr): NEW NAME and DEVICE

Sable, an axe inverted winged and headed argent, hafted Or, charged upon the axe-head with two gouttes de sang.

>The name is Old Norse, and both elements are found in >The Old Norse Name,> Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. >Gunni> is a male given name on p. 10 and the byname is found on p. 20. The client desires a male name and is most interested in the sound and language/culyure of the name.

Lisette du Lac >(Atenveldt/TY): NEW NAME and DEVICE
>Sable, a blonde melusine proper between three fleur-de-lys argent.
Lisette is documented to 1528 in "Late Period Feminine Names from the South of France," Talan Gwynek >(>>).

>du Lac> is a locative byname"of the lake", based on "Late Period Feminine Names from the South of France," Talan Gwynek (>>). Alys Mackyntoich demonstrates >du Lac> in Dauzat et Rostaing, p. 376, s.n. Lacq, citing >Lac> to the 13th century. The client desires a female name and is most interested in the sound of the name.

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, August 2018:

Cathlin of Morecombe Bottome. Reblazon of device. Per chevron inverted wavy sable and erminois, a swan rousant contourny argent, gorged and chained Or.
Blazoned when registered in May 1985 as Per chevron inverted wavy sable and erminois, a swan statant to sinister, wings addorsed argent, gorged and chained Or, the swan is in a posture we now simply call rising or rousant.
Moye Varr. Name and device. Per fess potenty argent and gules, in chief an eagle rising sable.
This device is not in conflict with the badge of Thylacinus Aquila of Dair Eidand, (Fieldless) An eagle rising sable bellied, headed, and detailed argent fimbriated of flames proper. On reviewing the registered badge, the eagle is at least 50% argent, if not more. There is therefore a DC for the field, and a second for change in tincture of the primary charge.
Moye Varr. Badge. Per bend sinister Or and sable, a double-headed eagle and a Catherine wheel counterchanged.
Orrin Darius. Name.
The only documentation provided for Orrin was from a user-submitted record found through the FamilySearch Historical Records. We remind heralds and submitters that user-submitted genealogies are not valid documentation. The only FamilySearch records that are usable are those found in the batches identified in the January 2014 Cover Letter. Other records that have attached images of primary sources may be usable on a case-by-case basis.
Fortunately, Orrin is a gray-period English surname, found in an acceptable batch of the FamilySearch Historical Records. As such surnames can be used as given names, this name can be registered as submitted.
Theodora Akropolitissa. Device. Argent, a bull's head cabossed and in chief a double-bitted axe palewise gules, a bordure embattled azure.
William of Atenveldt. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Sable, a natural tiger rampant Or striped sable, on a chief Or a bow sable.
There is a step from period practice for the use of a natural tiger. Submitted under the name Kim Samguk.

The following submissions were returned by the College of Arms for further work, August 2018:

Kim Samguk.> Name.
Although Kim is well-attested as a Korean family name, we found no evidence to support the construction of the given name Samguk. The term Samguk in Korean means "three kingdoms" and is a poetical term used to refer to Korea in 13th century Korean writings. We were unable to find evidence of Koreans using such terms as name elements. We were also unable to construct Samguk from period Korean elements. Accordingly, this name must be returned.

The submitter's device is registered under the holding name William of Atenveldt.
Matheus Veðr Brokkr. Device. Per fess vert and sable, in chief in fess a spear sustained by a badger rampant and in base a sun argent.
This device is returned for violation of SENA A3D2a, which prohibits more than two types of charge in the same charge group. The spear is large enough to be co-primary with the badger, which is already co-primary with the sun. With three different types of charge in the same primary charge group (spear, badger, and sun) this meets SENA's description of "slot machine" heraldry, and must be returned.
