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, April 2017:

Ælfgyfu Æthelwulfesdohtor. Name change from holding name Michelle of Twin Moons.
Submitted as Ælfgyfe Æthelwulfesdohtor, the submitted spelling did not use the nominative (base) form of the given name. In certain languages (including Old English), the spelling of a name may change depending on how the name is used in a sentence. In such languages, only the nominative form can be used for a registerable given name. In this case, the nominative form of the given name is Ælfgyfu. With the submitter's permission, we have made this change for registration.
Ambrose the Gutless. Device. Sable, a hand argent between in chief two bees, a bordure Or.
Please advise the submitter to draw the bees slightly smaller so that there is no doubt that they are in a secondary charge group.
Devorix Catumari. Name and device. Gules, in pale a lion's head cabossed and on a winged lozenge Or a saltire sable, an orle Or.
Submitted as Devorix Tiberius Catumaros, the name as submitted did not follow any of the documented patterns for Gaulish names. With the submitter's permission, we have changed the name to Devorix _ Catumari to use the pattern for patronymic bynames found in "Name Constructions in Gaulish" ( by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn.
Francois Barbe d'Or. Name and device. Per bend sinister gules and argent, a Paschal lamb regardant proper and a cross formy gules.
Submitted as François Barbe-d'Or, we have removed the hyphen from the byname to match the documentation. In addition, the c-cedilla in the given name does not appear on the name form; it seems to have been added at Kingdom without explanation. As the name is registerable both with and without the cedilla, we have restored the given name to its originally submitted form.
Kaylea of Twin Moons. Name and device. Argent, a chevron enarched within and conjoined at the point to a chevron between two butterflies purpure and a tulip gules slipped and leaved vert.
Submitted as Kaylea of Atenveldt, this name conflicted with the registered Kali of Atenveldt. Although different in appearance, both names reasonably can be (and in some dialects are) pronounced as "kay-lee." Therefore, the two names conflict in sound. With the submitter's permission, we have changed the name to Kaylea of Twin Moons for registration. Twin Moons is the registered name of an SCA branch.
Sewenna de Carlton. Name.
The Letter of Intent did not document the spelling de Carlton. Fortunately, Lillia Pelican Emerita found this spelling dated to 1190-1260 in Watts.
Nice early 13th century English name!
Sólveig Æsudóttir. Name.
Submitted as Sólveig Æsadóttir, the submitted spelling of the byname uses an incorrect genitive (possessive) form of the parent's name. Lind s.n. Ása indicates that the genitive form ends in -u. Therefore, we have changed the byname to Æsudóttir to use the correct grammar.
The submitter requested authenticity for "Old Norse, 600-800 AD." We cannot meet this request because the earliest evidence we have for the name Sólveig is from c. 1000 C.E.
Una {O,}lfúss. Name and device. Or, a domestic cat statant erect gules maintaining a sword sable, a chief embattled gules.

The following were returned for further work, April 2017:

Viktoria of York. Device. Per saltire argent and purpure, in pale two crosses and in fess two dragonflies counterchanged.

This device is returned for running afoul of SENA A3D2b. which states "Mixing Ordinaries and Other Charges: While charge groups may have different types of charges, charge groups consist of either identical ordinaries or complex charges. Thus, a single charge group may not mix ordinaries with non-ordinaries or mix two types of ordinaries."
Here we have a primary charge group with the crosses throughout (which are considered ordinaries) and the dragonflies.
On resubmission, please advise the submitter to properly draw the dragonflies with the wings parallel to one another rather than at an angle.
