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

The following were registered by the S.C.A. College of Arms, February 2014:

Benedetta Amadei. Name and device. Per pale and per chevron vert and argent, two tau crosses and a horse rampant counterchanged.

Nice 15th century Florentine name!

Benedetta Amadei. Badge. (Fieldless) A tau cross vert charged in base with a goutte d'eau.

Cristina Aurelia Vitelli. Name and device. Argent, a hummingbird hovering vert between three crosses bottony fitchy gules, a bordure azure.

Nice 16th century Venetian name!

There is a step from period practice for the use of a hummingbird.

Dugan Rushton. Name and device. Per chevron azure and sable, a chevron gules fimbriated between three mullets of six points argent and a bear statant Or.

Dugan was documented as a Scottish surname used as a given name. By precedent, surnames cannot be used as given names in Scotland. Luckily for the submitter, Dugan is also documented as an English surname, so the English pattern of using a surname as a given name can be used.

Duncan Aaron of Windermere. Name and device. Gules, on a plate a Maltese cross throughout sable and on a chief argent three hearts gules.

The submitter has permission to share the byname of the registered Simon Aaron of Windermere, although it was not necessary because all elements were documented and there was no conflict.

Morighane o'r Mynydd. Name and device. Argent semy of hexagonal gemstones vert, a raven contourny sable maintaining in its beak a hexagonal gemstone, a trimount vert.

Anglicized Irish and Welsh are in the same language group and are an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

Having the same charge as a maintained charge and in a secondary charge group, both on the field, has been cause for return in the past:

[within and conjoined to the horns of a decrescent argent a rose, an orle of roses Or barbed vert] This device is returned for using two of the same type of charge in different charge groups on the field....the rose between the horns of the crescent is a maintained charge, which does not count for difference, yet it is larger than the roses in orle. Several commenters were confused as to whether this device has strewn roses, rather than an orle and the maintained charge. [Safiya bint Ahmad ibn Abdullah, R-Atenveldt, April 2010 LoAR]

However, the maintained hexagonal gemstone here is distinctly smaller than the identical strewn charges, and as its appearance does not blur the distinction between charge groups, it is allowable.

Sigrún J{o,}fursdóttir. Name and device. Papellony azure and Or, on a heart gules a polypus Or.

Submitted as Sigrún Jöfursdóttir, ö is a modern way of writing the Old Norse character {o,} (o-ogonek). We have changed this character to the standard o-ogonek in order to register the name.

Valdisa Álarsdóttir. Household name Flory House.

Venetia Painter. Name and device. Or, on a phoenix gules between two artist's paint brushes palewise sable a lantern argent.

The following was returned for further work, February 2014:

Iosif Volkov. Device change. Azure chaussé paly gules and argent, a lightning bolt palewise Or.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Thora of Thescorre, Quarterly sable and gules, a lightning bolt palewise Or. There is a DC for the change in field, but nothing else.

There is a step from period practice for the use of a lightning bolt not as part of a thunderbolt.
