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, December 2015:
Danielle Camera de Misericordia. Name and device. Per bend sinister argent and vert, three shamrocks and a dagger inverted counterchanged.
Danielle is the submitter's legal given name. Forms of this name like Daniela and Daniella can be found in Spain in the late 16th century, but the submitted spelling could not be found in Spain. However, it is found as an attested masculine name from 16th century Italy. Therefore, the submitter need not rely on the legal name allowance.
It was noted in commentary that a feminine instance of Danielle is found in France dated to 1573 in the FamilySearch Historical Records. However, the document image shows a post-period, printed form onto which the handwritten information from some other record was transcribed. Therefore, this particular instance may not be reliable and is not sufficient documentation for this name as a French name.
This name combines an Italian given name and Spanish bynames. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
Gilly Wede. Name and device. Gyronny gules and sable, a gillyflower argent between eight bees in annulo Or.
This design was well documented as an Individually Attested Pattern in late period English armory. Evidence was provided of the red and black gyronny with charges. Additionally, bees and gillyflowers were found in the same jurisdiction.
Gilly Wede. Badge. Per saltire gules and sable, a bee Or between four gillyflowers in saltire argent.
`Izza al-Zarqa'. Badge. (Fieldless) A horse's head erased contourny argent charged with a lotus blossom in profile purpure.
Johnathan Crusadene Whitewolf. Transfer of badge to Nichelle of Whitewolfe. Quarterly sable and gules, a demi-wolf rampant erased argent.
Mark the Just. Device. Sable, a hanging balance and on a chief embattled argent a rod per pale gules and sable.
Nichelle of Whitewolfe. Acceptance of transfer of badge from Johnathan Crusadene Whitewolf. Quarterly sable and gules, a demi-wolf rampant erased argent.
Pól Ó Coileáin. Name and device. Or, a bend sinister sable between a hawk striking contourny and a drawn bow reversed with arrow nocked azure.
Submitted as Pól mac Coileáin, the attested Anglicized Irish byname O Collaine and its corresponding standard Gaelic form Ó Coileáin are derived from a descriptive term meaning "the whelps" rather than a given name. Therefore, this byname cannot be used to form a Gaelic patronym. However, there is a similar given name, Cuilén or Culén, from which the byname mac Cuilein or mac Culein can be formed. We have changed the name to Pól Ó Coileáin to register this name, as it is the closest to what was submitted. If the submitter prefers one of the mac forms mentioned above, he can submit a request for reconsideration.
Tobias Wade. Device. Gyronny gules and Or, a fleur-de-lys and an orle azure.

The following submissions were returned by the CoA for further work, December 2015:

Ceallach Colquhoun. Badge. Per bend sinister gules and argent, a door argent banded, handled and charged with two arrows in saltire sable, and a dragon sejant affronty, wings displayed and head to dexter gules.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." As depicted, the arrows on the door appear to be part of the door and not independent charges. The arrows are similar in color and width to the details on the door, leading commenters to see them as part of the door. Changing the tincture of either the details or the arrows or making the arrows bolder with larger heads and fletchings would improve identifiability.
