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

The following Atenveldt submissions have been accepted, July 2020:

 Ellisif Eldr Grimsdottir. Device change. Argent, a heart gules transfixed by a sword bendwise sinister inverted sable, a bordure compony sable and argent.
The submitter's previous device, Per pale indented lozengy sable and Or, and gules, a rod of Asclepius Or, is released.

Iurii Vasilovich. Device. Per bend sinister argent and vert, a bear rampant counterchanged.
Nice device!

Justin Kent of Northumbria. Name and device. Per pall inverted gules, Or, and argent, a broad-arrow sable, in chief a plate and two swords in saltire vert.
Nice English name from the 14th century onwards!
Because plates cannot be in saltire, no Unity of Orientation issue exists.

Máire ingen uí Con Chaille. Name and device. Per fess wavy argent and azure, a wooden boat proper sailed azure and a sea-serpent ondoyant contourny argent.
Submitted as Máire ni Cú Chaile, the byname was not correctly formed. First, the particle ni is not found in Gaelic in period. It is a post-period contraction of the markers ingen uí. Second, in a patronymic byname, the father's name must take the genitive (possessive) form. The correct genitive form of Cú Caille is Con Chaille. Accordingly, we have changed the name to Máire ingen uí Con Chaille to use the correct Middle Irish form of the byname.
The submitter may prefer a simple patronymic byname indicating that a man named Cú Caille was her father (rather than the ancestor of her clan or family). In that case, it would take the form Máire ingen Con Chaille. If the submitter prefers this form, she may make a request for reconsideration.

Randvé Vilúlfsdóttir. Name.
Submitted as Randvé Vilulf, no documentation could be found to support the byname. The source cited in the Letter of Intent merely listed Vilulf as a hypothetical Norse given name that might have given rise to a Norman family name at some point. Fortunately, ffride Morelle was able to construct Vilúlfr as an Old Norse male given name. Old Norse does not use unmarked patronymics. The correct patronymic for a woman named Randvé who is the daughter of a man named Vilúlfr is Vilúlfsdóttir. With the submitter's permission, we have changed the name to Randvé Vilúlfsdóttir for registration.

The following submissions were pended by the College of Arms, July 2020, until December 2020:

Randvé Vilúlfsdóttir. Device. Purpure, on a cross cotised argent a raven reguardant contourny sable.

This item is pended to address the trian aspect of the raven. The foreshortened wings, the rotation of the body and the absence of a tail combine to give the distinct impression of a three-dimensional representation. Wreath staff will prepare a redraw for the submitter's consideration.
