Áilgheanán mac Síthigh (Twin Moons): NEW DEVICE: Or, a hound passant regardant vert and a chief sable.

couchant contourny paly Or and sable and a tree eradicated argent.

Ceallach Colquhoun: NEW HOUSEHOLD NAME, Red Dragon Keep of Sundragon
client desires a household name based on an inn sign <color +
mythological creature>, as demonstrated in “English Sign Names,”
Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada
(http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/), and the use of the designator
Keep was registered to Emelyn Fraser's Stonegard Keep in September
2015, and earlier to Cassandra Attewoode's Summers Keep in June 2011.
The household name is to be associated with her registered badge, Per bend sinister gules and argent, a door argent banded and handled sable and charged with two arrows in saltire, and a dragon sejant affronty, wings displayed and face to dexter gules.
Fiórleif eldr orn (Tir Ysgithr): DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, 12/2010: Argent, a phoenix gules, a bordure sable semy of pheons argent.
Peter Gilmore (Tir Ysgithr):
NEW DEVICE: Per bend
purpure and argent, a wyvern statant argent and three cats gardant
herisonny contourny sable.
Hannah Millican (BoA): NEW DEVICE: Per bend vert and pupure, on a bend Or between two natural dolphins naiant in annulo argent, a rose sable.
The dolphins are overall - the bend isn't between them. Naiant is the default for dolphins so that can be omitted. The default posture of the dolphin is naiant. Possible reblazon: Per bend vert and purpure, on a bend Or a rose sable, overall two natural dolphins in annulo argent. [IaA]
Johnathan Crusadene Whitewolf the Younger (BoA): NEW ALTERNATE NAME, Eber Hauer, and NEW BADGE
Per bend Or and argent, a bend raguly gules between a double-headed eagle sable and an elephant's tusk gules.
I thought Eber is a male given name based on the following (darn it!), but the name is Ebert (along with a number of other Ebert citations): Ebert Am Aberge has a christening date of 9 Nov 1623 in Evangelish, Feudinge, Westfalen, Prussia, Batch C97748-9 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AEber~%20%2Bbirth_place%3AGermany~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~). Because of this, we are hoping that Eber might be a given name based on Jacob Eber Maley, a man with the christening date of 27 Sep 1622 in Evangelisch, Reichelsheim Friedbert, Oberhessen, Hesse-Darms, Batch C93888-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NCDZ-LLC : 28 November 2014).
Hauer is a surname; Joannes Hauer has a christening date of 21 Aug 1623 in Kulsheim, Baden, Germany, Batch C92511-1 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AHauer~%20%2Bbirth_place%3AGermany~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~).
The client desires a male name and is most interested in the meanings, sound and language/culture of the name; he would like it authentic for language/culture (none given). He will not accept Major or Minor changes to the name.
A tusk is an elephant’s tooth, couped and with point to chief by default; it is a permitted charge.
Leofrun of Tir Ysgithr (Tir Ysgithr): NEW NAME and BADGE: Gules, a chimera statant within a bordure Or.
Leofrun is a female given name found in “Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters,” Marieke van de Dal (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/). Tir Ysgithr is an SCA territory (Tucson AZ), with the name registered January 1973.
Leolin Blackwell (Ered Sul): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Sable, a chevron gules ermined and fimbriated or between two natural panthers combattant Or marked sable and a demi-sun issuant from base Or.
name is English. Leolin is found in The
History of the County Palatine and the City of Chester,
was a Welsh prince; the book has side-by-side translations from the
Latin, and the man's Latinized Welsh name is Lewelinus.
This is the Englished form of the name.
Lilias of Braemar (Granite Mountain): NEW NAME
After learning that the cut-off for place names in the SCA is 1600, rather than the grey area of 1650, the client was happy to choose the Scottish surname Mar. Kirstane Mar has a christening date of 29 June 1572 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland Batch C11424-2 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=+batch_number:C11424-2). The name will be adjusted in the LoI.
de Grae (BoA): NEW DEVICE
Muiredach mac Robartaig (Granholme): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Chevronelly inverted azure and Or, on a chief-pale between two doves respectant gules, a double-headed axe Or.
The placement of the axe adequately fulfills Mistholme's dictum at http://mistholme.com/dictionary/chief-pale/, "if charged with tertiary charges, they must fill the entire chief-pale, both the horizontal and vertical portions." [MGC]
Olive Long Anne Prosper (Granholme): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Quarterly purpure and sable, on a cross rayonny Or between in chief two owls respectant argent, an increscent moon azure.
Margarett Long married in 1590 in Guisley, York, England, Batch P00938-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NPXH-YYF). The September 20112 LoAR Cover Letter says that family names documented in 16th C. England can be used as given name. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5).
I believe the term we have used in past for the rays on the cross is "rayonnant". Rayonny to me is the wavy pointy things all along the edge of a field division, ordinary or subordinary. "Rayonnant" is equivalent to "irradiated". [BLoR]
And at least two other sources agree with Mistholme about rayonnant: https://hu.wikibooks.org/wiki/F%C3%A1jl:Coa_Illustration_Cross_Rayonnant.svg, first image below, and the "English-German Glossary of Heraldic Terms.pdf" at http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~tqpeiffer/Documents. [MGC]
Orabilis Douw (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW NAME, DEVICE and BADGE
(device) Per pale dovetailed argent and purpure, a wolf sable and a winged unicorn argent combatant, on a chief rayonny vert three thistles argent, flowered purpure.
(badge) Argent, a wolf's head erased sable and a unicorn's head erased purpure armed gules respectant and a point pointed counter-ermine.
Badge: A point pointed is not allowed to come up to the fess line, much less beyond. A per chevron ployé division can't start at the bottom corners. The submission is unblazonable and must be returned. While I commend in itself the unusual choice of ermine spots, in execution they are arguably unrecognizable. Submitter should be made aware that it is acceptable to use black in the b&w version for what will be sable in the colored. Doing so is likely to improve the recognizability of the spots, even if they are not made larger.[MGC]
Appears clear from conflict as a point pointed, but that'll need a redraw to be acceptable. [ELM]The badge was redrawn to correctly place the point; by doing this, the primary charges are able to be drawn larger. [MMM]
Roland of Blaye (Ered Sul): NEW NAME
There was a bit of commentary that thought that the name was presumptuous (the hero Roland is said to be buried at Blaye), but I forward it to the College for additional input.
Sibyl Breathnach (BoA): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Gules, a corgi dog rampant to sinister Or maintaining a dagger inverted sable, a bordure embattled Or.
Coblaith Muimnech comments that “this is most logically presented as an English name incorporating an Anglicized Irish surname. By the 13th century the English had started using gender-neutral familial surnames, so whether a Gaelic woman would've been known as Breathnach wouldn't be an issue...The Calendar of the Justiciary Rolls or Proceedings in the Court of the Justiciar of Ireland Preserved in the Public Record Office of Ireland contains several attested forms of the byname, of which the closest in period and spelling to the submitted form is Brethnagh, dated to 1299 (vol. 1, p. 296: https://archive.org/stream/calendarofjustic01irel#page/296).” Additionally, a period illustration of a corgi/curre dogge was provided.
Þórbjørn Siggeirson (BoA): NEW NAME
name is Old Norse.
Valeas Proietto di Venezia (TY): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Sable, on a pile azure fimbriated a scimitar inverted, a bordure argent.
name is Italian. The client's documentation: “My persona is that
of an Italian street orphan adopted by a Venetian merchant family ca.
1500 AD. The name “Valeas” is a not toouncommon (but still used)
latin name meaning “full of life”. “Proietto” was a VERY
common surname given to orphans. It literally means “cast off” or
“unwanted'”. The post-name of “di Venezia” is just that, to
tell where I'm from. This was (and is still) a common practice in
Italy. Thus, the entire name of “Valeas Porietto de Venezia” is
a truly historically accurate name for a street orphan from
conversation generated with the name submission.
Blackwell (Ered Sul):
NEW NAME and DEVICE: Sable,
on a pale gules fimbriated between in chief two wolves rampant
addorsed a sword inverted argent.
Yagi Tenji Yoshitatsu Kakujo (SD): NEW NAME CHANGE and NEW DEVICE CHANGE: Azure, on a hexagon within a hexagon voided argent a hemp leaf vert.
At this time, there are no submissions for consideration in the May 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Intent.
