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

The following submissions were registered by the College of Arms, February 2015:
Áine inghean Uí Cheallaigh. Device. Per chevron azure and argent, two owls respectant argent and a tree eradicated azure trunked sable.
Alfred Jensen of Mo. Badge. (Fieldless) On a cross formy fitched at the foot sable a dove rising argent.
Antoinette of Granholme. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Vert, in fess two lozenges conjoined each per saltire argent and Or.
Submitted under the name Antoinette Marie.
Atenveldt, Kingdom of. Order name Order of the Golden Needle and badge. Azure, a needle and a bordure rayonny Or.
Atenveldt, Kingdom of. Order name Order of the Golden Quill and badge. Azure, a quill pen and a bordure rayonny Or.
Atenveldt, Kingdom of. Order name Order of the Golden Trumpet and badge. Azure, a trumpet and a bordure rayonny Or.
Submitted as Order of the Golden Trumpet, this order name appeared in the Letter of Intent with an extraneous colon (Order of the Golden Trumpet:). We have removed this punctuation in order to register this name.
This order name does not conflict with the registered Gold Trumpet Herald Extraordinary: This order name is clear of the registered Golden Griffin Pursuivant, Golden Gryphon Pursuivant (both owned by the East Kingdom) and Household of the Golden Griffen; the removal of the second syllable in the adjective is a substantial change in sound and appearance. [Wealdsmere, Barony of, Order of the Gold Griffon, December 2012, A-An Tir]
In the present submission, a syllable has been added, so it is similarly clear under NPN3C2 of SENA.
Gideon the Weary. Device. Sable, a dragon Or and a griffin argent addorsed tails entwined, a base wavy barry wavy argent and gules.
Honour Grenehart. Badge. Per pale azure and sable, a hurst of pine trees and a base indented argent.
Jacob Fisher de Cardif. Name and device. Per bend sinister azure and argent, a covered saltcellar shedding salt and a seadog rampant counterchanged.
Please advise the submitter to add scales on the seadog.
Séamus mac Ríáin and Iuliana of the Unicorn. Joint badge. Per pale nebuly Or and vert, a winged domestic cat sable and a unicorn argent combattant.
Sibyll Hunter. Name.
Nice late 16th century English name!

The following submissions were returned by the College of Arms for further work, Febuary 2015:

Antoinette Marie. Name.
Section IIIA10 of the Admin Handbook states: No name will be registered to a submitter if it is identical to a name used by the submitter for purposes of identification outside of a Society context. This includes legal names, common use names, trademarks, and other items registered with mundane authorities that serve to identify an individual or group.
Precedent states that, "In the case of this submission, the submitted name Mari Alexander contains the first two names of the submitter's legal name. Therefore, it is in conflict with Mari Alexander, a legitimate use name derived from her legal name of Mari Alexander [surname], and must be returned [Mari Alexander, September 2002, R-West]."
The submission has the same problem. Antoinette Marie is a legitimate use name derived from the submitter's legal name, and must be returned.
Commenters also questioned whether this name was presumptuous due to the similarity of the name to that of the historical Marie Antoinette. We allow references to famous people, as long as there is not presumption, a claim to be or to be related to that person who is important enough to protect. Although we agree that the French queen is worthy of protection, she has never been known by the submitted name. Therefore, this name is not presumptuous.
Her device has been registered under the holding name Antoinette of Granholme.
Marceau de Valcourt. Household name Mirthful Grand Alliance of Mead and Drum.
The Letter of Intent did not demonstration that this household name was constructed in a period manner. For example, no evidence was provided to support the use of adjectives like Mirthful to describe groups of people or to modify designators, or that a phrase like Grand Alliance could be used as a designator.
Mead is not a heraldic charge. Therefore, this name does not follow the pattern of an inn-sign derived from the names of two different charges. We would interpret Mead and Drum as bynames, but we do not have evidence to support the pattern [designator] of [surname] and [surname].
Without such documentation, this household name cannot be registered.
Sundragon, Barony of. Order name Order of the Dragon and the Fireside and badge. Per pale rayonny sable and Or, in dexter base a flame proper.
This order name is returned for lack of evidence that Fireside is a plausible heraldic charge. Therefore, the pattern of Order of the X and Y, where X and Y are both heraldic charges, cannot be used. Without further documentation, this order name cannot be registered.
This badge is returned for conflict with the device of William of Sark: Sable, a flame proper. There is only one DC for changing the field. The proper flame in the submitted badge cannot be partially on the Or half of the field because it is partially Or, and thus it is forced to move. Therefore, no DC is granted for the difference in position.
Yehoshua ben Abraam. Device. Or, two pea-vines fructed and entwined about a stake, on a chief vert three stars of David Or.
This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Many commenters were unable to identify the stake as an element independent from the plant.
