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

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms March 2014:

Aulus Valerius. Name change from Aidan Macpherson.

The submitter's prior name, Aidan Macpherson, is released.

Eilidh MacMurtrie. Badge for alternate name Clarisse Savoir. Per fess gules and sable, an open book argent and a lantern Or.

Howard the Strange. Name.

The attested byname Le Strange is generally glossed as "the stranger" or "the foreigner" so the lingua Anglica form of this name would not be "the Strange". However, the term strange is also an adjective meaning "aloof" or "unfriendly" (Middle English Dictionary, s.v. straunge). Additional examples of period bynames pertaining to disposition or mood include Malvais "unhappy, wicked", Tardcurtays "discourteous, ill-bred person", and Ouerprud "unbearably arrogant person" (Jönsjö, Studies on Middle English Nicknames). Therefore, this name follows the pattern of descriptive bynames in Middle English, which we allow to be used with either le or the under Appendix A of SENA.

Jacqueline de Bretaigne. Name (see RETURNS for device).

The submitter requested authenticity for a 13th to 14th century Norman/French name. The byname was documented to the late 13th century. Although Jacqueline was documented in the Letter of Intent to the 14th century, it can also be interpolated from names found in the same source as the byname. Therefore, this name is probably authentic for both the 13th and 14th centuries.

Ríán hua Tadgáin. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Rodney of El Dorado. Reblazon of device. Or, on a saltire sable a unicorn rampant Or crined and armed gules.

Blazoned when registered in October 1976 as Or, on a saltire sable a unicorn forcene Or, crined unguled langued armed and orbed gules, we are clarifying the posture of the unicorn.

The following were returned for further work, March 2014:

Jacqueline de Bretaigne. Device. Per fess azure and argent, three doves volant argent and a lily affronty gules seeded Or.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." The lily affronty here is not identifiable as such; lily flowers are more typically drawn in profile, not affronty. Furthermore, this one appears to be in trian aspect: tilted so that it is somewhere between affronty and in profile, something we do not allow. This should be redrawn as either a more heraldic lily in profile, or as a generic flower or rose affronty.

Ríán hua Tadgáin. Device. Per chevron sable and vert, a chevron rompu between a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy and an edelweiss argent seeded Or.

This device was withdrawn by the submitter.
