(administered by the Brickbat Herald)


Unto Their Royal Majesties Cosmo Craven and Elzbieta; Lord Tymothy Smythson, Aten Principal Herald; the 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!

This is an Addendum for the June 2014 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have commentary to me by 20 June 2014. Thank you!

Kingdom Collegium: Thanks to those who hung out at the Consultation Table. It was lightly attended (too many interesting classes to go to!), but we heralds were able to chat amongst ourselves and got to learn some things of administative natures to help with our offices (you just know that's a good thing!). Several submissions were handed to me at the Collegium, hence this Addendum. Thanks again, and good to see Tymothy, Sorcha, Katherine Throckmorton, Keriji Qara and Kedivor! Some of us addled types even talked (out loud!) about bidding on a future KWHSS (it was the heat, I think!)...

Heraldry Hut: Heraldry Hut will be held Friday, 20 June, 2014, beginning at 7:30 PM. Please contact me for location and directions.

Please consider the following submissions for the June 2014 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:

Alexander Throckmorton (Brymstone): NEW NAME

The name is English. Alexander is a male given name, with this spelling dated to 1189, 1273 and 1316 (Withycombe, 3rd edition, s.n. Alexander); it is also the client's legal given name. Throckmorton is found in the IGI database, batch number C04033-2, dated to 1592. (It is also an element of his legal mother's and brother's registered SCA names, Katherine Throckmorton and Thomas Throckmorton).

Alfrún Sigþórssdóttir (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE

Per fess embattled Or and vert, two musimons combattant sable and a plate.

The name is Old Norse, with elements found in the Viking Answer Lady website, Alfrún is a female given name, composed of the elements Alf- and -rún, from OW Norse. Sigþórr is a male given name, and the patronymic is formed as -rr > -rs, hence Sigþorssdóttir. The client desires a female name and is most interested in the language/culture of the name (none given; Old Norse/Norse suspected). She will not accept Major changes to the name. The client wants to use the ON spelling, with diacriticals and letters.

Aramis Charbonneau (Sundragon): NEW NAME

is the client's legal given name (his birth certificate has been seen and is attested to by Sorcha, Prism Pursuivant.) . Aramis Tubbard of Kent, England is dated to 1629 (christening date) Batch C03309-5, It appears that the given name is documented as a female given name in period, and as a male name post-period; the client is aware of this. Charbonneau is a French byname found in "Names from the Household of Charlotte de Savoie," Sara L. Uckelman, in which it is stated, “ "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.)" ( This is the SCA byname submitted by his legal mother, Bianca Charbonneau; SENA Appendix C allows the combination of English and French elements in late period names. The character Aramis in Dumas' The Three Musketeers (1844) is a nickname; he was christened René d'Herblay. The addition of a second element should distinguish between the client Aramis Charbonneau and the single-element, 19th C fictional character Aramis. The client is most interested in the language/culture of the name (none given).

Candice Libel (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE

Azure, a dragonfly argent within an orle of compass stars Or.

Candice is the client's legal given name (her Arizona driver's license is attested to by Sorcha, Prism Pursuivant). SCA precedence about the name Candace on the June 2003 LoAR, under Candace Margreta Zanten: 'It must be noted that Candace, like Regina, was used as a title. Therefore, it may be used as a given name "provided there is no suggestion of territorial claim or explicit assertion of rank" (RfS VI.1). ..In a similar manner, Candace must be the first element of the Society name, which it is in the submitted name, and Candace "may not be followed by any translation of 'of X,' where X is a place name, as that could indicate that the person was queen of that place." In the submitted name, van Zanten means 'of Zanten', and so violates the requirement that Candace not be followed by any translation of 'of [placename]'.' The client has not used a locative in combination with a given name similar to Candace. Libel is a German byname dated to 1568 in the name of Caspar Libel (wedding date) in IGI FamilySearch, Batch M91614-9, The client desires a female name and is most interested in the meaning of the name (none given). She will not accept Major Changes to the name.

She really wants compass stars as the round, pointed charges.

Juliane de Grey (Sundragon): NEW DEVICE

Purpure, an altar argent flammant Or, and on a chief argent a roundel between an increscent and a decrescent purpure.

The name was registered July 2012.

The altar (somewhat shortened) is seen here as it is in the Pictorial Dictionary ( The depiction of the phases of the moon is a step from period practice.

Seonaid McDaid (Sundragon): NEW NAME CHANGE, from Seonaid inghean Mhuireadhaigh

The original name was registered January 2011. The client is adopting the SCA byname of her legal husband, Seamus McDaid (he provides permission to conflict). MacDade/MacDaid is found in Black, p. 485, a Scots family name. At the time of Seamus' registration, McDaid was considered an acceptable spelling. The client will not Major or Minor changes to the name and will not allow a holding name. If the name change is accepted, the client wishes to retain the old name as an alternate name.

Seonaid McDaid (Sundragon): NEW JOINT BADGE, with Seamus McDaid

Per pale purpure and argent, a tower counterchanged and on a chief per pale argent and azure, a shamrock counterchanged.

Seamus' name was registered December 1999. The badge uses elements from Seonaid's registered device, Per pale purpure and argent, three towers counterchanged. (as Seonaid inghean Mhuireadhaigh), and Seamus' registered device, Per pale argent and azure, a shamrock counterchanged.

Uliana Iosefova (Sundragon): NEW DEVICE

Quarterly argent and azure, two double-bladed axes crossed in saltire between three roses, all counterchanged.

The name was registered June 2011.

The roses are barbed and seeded proper, which I think can be omitted from the blazon as a matter of artistic license.

Yoiks! Here comes KWHSS! If you're attending, travel safely! I hope to see you there!
