The following submissions appear in the February 2014 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Commentary is provided by Alys Mackyntoich [AM], Aryanhwy merch Catmael [AmC], Brenna Lowri o Ruthin [BloR], Emma de Fetherstan [EdF], ffride wlffsdotter [fw], Gunnvor silfraharr [Gs], Maridonna Benvenuti [MB], Padraig Lowther [PL], Tailtiu of Gortrua [TG], Taran The Wayward [TW] and Marta [MMM].
Bianca Charbonneau (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Argent, an owl displayed and on a chief sable three fleur-de-lys argent.
from the Household of Charlotte de Savoie by Sara L. Uckelman lists 1
Charbonneau. The article states, "While I haven't been able to
determine an exact date for the list, it is from no earlier than
1464, since a nurse for her daughter Jehanne, born that year, is
mentioned. (It is also from no later than her death in 1483.)"
We do. Both fleurs-de-lys and lilies are period heraldic charges that were considered distinct in period (I believe it's Eton College that has both of them on their arms), and thus there is a DC. [AmC]
Denton Tanner (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Per bend argent and azure, a chamfrom and a horse's head couped contourny counterchanged.
Some internal detailing on the horse's head would be good. [BLoR]
Gwyneth O Callaghan (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Argent, a tree eradicated proper issuant from base and on a chief azure a sun Or and a decrescent argent.
The documentation for <Gwyneth> doesn't support its use as a given name. However, it can be found in the Family Search Historical Records: Gwineth Robert; Female; Marriage; 20 Oct 1577; Conway, Caernavon, England; Batch: M04948-1
been well-established that i and y are interchangeable in late-period
English and Welsh. [Am]
Blazon-fu: Argent, an ash tree eradicated proper issuant from base and on a chief azure a sun Or and a decrescent argent. If we just call it a tree, then we are saying it's our default, the oak tree. This is specifically ash, by the leaves and the ash-keys. [Gs]
Twin Palm Pursuivant notes that the sun is indeed Or.
Heinrich der Hahn (Twin Moons): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Quarterly vert and sable, in chief two roosters respectant Or.
Early Middle High German Bynames with Emphasis on Names from the
Bavarian Dialect Area
by Brian M. Scott
This appears clear of conflict and is a lovely, simple and aesthetically pleasing piece of heraldry. "Green and gold", and the rest "all black" - sporting Lochac approves. Greeting from a trainee herald from down under practicing her heraldry afield, under the supervision of Paddy Lowther. [TG]
Randolph Greenwall (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Vert, a harp and on a chief embattled Or three axes reversed vert.
the two name elements into the same century, <Randolph> also
appears as a male name in "Late Sixteenth Century English Given
Names" by Talan Gwynek
Sandhya Kesari (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Gyronny argent and sable, a lotus flower in profile and an orle purpure.
An alternative to this rather hard to see purple on black might be having the lotus 'face on' rather than in profile and counter changed with a gold flower centre. As it is this is not immediately identifiable as a lotus. [TG]
Assuming this passes kingdom, you'll probably want to rescan or tweak the color settings to add a bit more red in, so OSCAR will see the purple appropriately. See http://heraldry.sca.org/paperwork/scanningtips.html for details and tips. [EdF]
Sitriuc Liathsionnach (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Per chevron Or and vert, two pommes each charged with a triskelion of armored legs Or and a winged seafox couchant Or.
Eich Gil> is literally the only example of a [color] + [animal]
byname that I've ever seen in Gaelic. Does one example a pattern
make? However, might I suggest the following: Sitriuc mac Sinaig
Thank you all for your continuing hard work for the Atenveldt College of Heralds and the people of Atenveldt!
