Unto Juliana Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,
Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms. Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.
1. Kharington Fraser: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Checky argent and sable, a cross throughout gules cotised Or.
is the client's legal given name (a copy of her birth certificate is
provided to Laurel). (Carrington/Kerrington is found in Family
Search as well as an English surname, none with this spelling, just
as an FYI.)
2. Leo Hyrulea: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Per bend argent and gules, a lion queue-forchy and three triquetras all counterchanged.
Leo: client's legal given name.
Hyrulea: client's legal middle name. A copy of the AZ driver's license is included for Laurel.
Internal commentary demonstrated that the name is not allowed under III.A.10 of the Administrative Handbook; for the use, specifically, of first and middle names, see: http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2002/01/02-01lar.html Return, West, Mari Alexander. However, he maintains that Hyrulea is a Scottish surname, as noted in a brief biography of Richard Edwardes: “Edwardes was born in 1525...to Agnes Beaupenny Blewitt Edwards. Some of Edwardes' descendants have claimed that his mother was a mistress of Henry VIII and that Richard was Henry's son, although there has not been evidence to prove or disprove this theory....He married Helene Griffith in 1563 who of sorted of reasons had named been change from Alessia Hyrulea; her father's name was Ciberius Hyrulea.” Although this citation comes from Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Edwardes), these particular citations were referenced from The Mistresses of Henry VIII (First edition), by Kelly Hart (The History Press, p. 23, June 2009, ISBN 0-7524-4835-8)
The client will take the descriptive byname “the Red,” if it determined that Leo Hyrulea alone is not allowed due to III.A.10 in the Administrative Handbook.
He is most interested in the sound and the culture/language of the name (none given).
