Unto Their Royal Majesties Ivan and Ian'ka; Baron Seamus MacDade, Aten Principal Herald; 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!
Best wishes for a temperate Summer (insert hysterial laughter here). It was SO GOOD to see many of you at Aten University! I hope that it was time well-spent for you and that you'll be inspired in an armorial way. I don't know how much business I may attract, but there will be an Heraldic Consultation Table at the Mons Tonitus Arts and Science Competition on Saturday, 21 July. Come on down! I'll be fun!
And speaking of fun, please have commentary to me on the propose submissions for the July Letter of Intent by 20 July 2018. Thank you!
The following submissions appear in the July 2018 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Kharington Fraser (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW NAME and DEVICE
Checky argent and sable, a cross throughout gules cotised Or.
Kharington 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, none with this spelling, just as an FYI.) Fraser is well-documented in Scotland as a surname; Samuell Fraser has a christenint date of 24 July 1597 in Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland (Batch C-11685-4, https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VQ4N-GPL). The client desires a female name and will not accept Major or Minor chnged to the name. She is most interested in the sound and language/culture (Scotland) of the name.
Leo Hyrulea (Sundragon): 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 Hyruldea alone is not allowed due to III.A.10 in the Administrative Handbook
