Atenveldt Submissions (excerpted from the S.C.A. College of Arms' Letters of Acceptance and Return)

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, April 2020:

Benedict of Luzern. Badge. Azure, a fist with index finger extended issuant from a ford proper, in chief a mullet of four points argent.
Benedict of Luzern. Badge. Gules, a lion's head cabossed between flaunches Or.
This badge does not conflict with the device of Rodger of Saint Crispin, Gules, a lion's head cabossed Or irradiated argent. There is one DC for adding the flaunches and another for removal of the irradiation. In the acceptance of the device of Godiva de la Mer, Azure, a heart sable irradiated argent, it was ruled: "Period examples of irradiation show a pattern of rays having good contrast with the field, regardless of the main charge's tincture. If more than 2/3 of the edge of the main charge is separated from the field by the rays, the irradiation functions as a form of fimbriation for contrast purposes. Substantial rays such as these also function as a modifier to the main charge, much like adding wings, and add a DC from an unmodified version of the same charge." [Godiva de la Mer, 2/2017, A-East]
Fabio Ventura. Device change. Per bend argent and sable, a horned death's head and a bordure counterchanged.
The submitter's previous device, Or, a bend gules between three Latin crosses in bend and two more in bend sable, on a chief gules a cat couchant Or, is retained as a badge

Gret Búrstlinin. Badge. Per bend purpure and argent, two edelweiss seeded and a bordure counterchanged.

Lucia de Broc. Device. Azure, a fleur-de-lys and an orle Or.
This device conflicts with the device of John Bucstan de Glonn, Per chevron azure and gules, a fleur-de-lys and an orle Or. John provided blanket permission to conflict on the February 2007 LoAR.
Nice device!

Nuala Dalzel. Name.
This name combines a Gaelic given name and a Scots byname, an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C.

Richard Niall. Device. Vert, a triquetra Or braced with an annulet argent, a chief Or.

Úlfrún galti Bergsdóttir. Name change from holding name Misty of Atenveldt.
Submitted as Úlfrún _ Bergsdóttir, this name was pended on the November 2019 LoAR due to a conflict with the registered Úlfrún Biornsdóttir. We opted to pend to discuss possible changes to PN3C2, which currently states: "If a vowel and the consonant or group of consonants on one side of this vowel is different between the two names, we consider a syllable to be substantially changed." If PN3C2 were changed to allow a single syllable to be clear of conflict when both the vowel and any part of the consonant cluster on either side of the vowel are different, then the two names would no longer conflict.
Pend commentary focused on whether this name really conflicts with Úlfrún Biornsdóttir. Several commenters argued that the Bi- in Biornsdóttir uses a consonantal i, making the initial sound By- not B- and Biorns- two syllables, not one. However, SENA PN3C states that, "[w]hile we do not go out of our way to consider variant pronunciations, we do consider important period and modern pronunciations of name elements." A considerable number of modern pronunciations do, in fact, treat Biorns- as a single syllable, essentially reading the io as a single sound. Even though this pronunciation is not technically correct, we cannot completely disregard it. Therefore, yes, this name does conflict with Úlfrún Biornsdóttir.
To avoid the conflict, at the submitter's request, we have changed the name to Úlfrún galti Bergsdóttir. Galti is an Old Norse descriptive byname meaning "boar" found in the Landnámabók. With this change, the name no longer conflicts and can be registered.
Nice 9th-10th century Icelandic name!
For discussion of the proposed change to PN3C2, see the Cover Letter.

The following submissions were pended by the College of Arms, April 2020:

Gwenllian ferch Llywelyn ab Ieuan. Augmentation of arms. Vert, three hedgehogs statant argent, for augmentation on a canton Or an acorn proper within an orle azure.
This device is pended for redraw due to the depiction of the hedgehogs blurring the distinction between statant and sejant. Wreath staff has redrawn the artwork and sent it to the submitter for approval.
This was item 5 on the Atenveldt letter of January 30, 2020.
