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

ATENVELDT REGISTRATIONS by the College of Arms, April 2005:


Amicia Theudoric la Sauniere. Name and device. Per pale embattled vert and argent, three bees in pale proper and a columbine azure slipped vert.


Anna de Wombwell. Name.

There was some question whether Wombwell was consistent with period spellings. Bardsley, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, s.n. Wombwell, has the submitted spelling in 1558. If the submitter is interested in an authentic English name, we suggest Anna Wombwell; by the 16th C the preposition had disappeared from most locative surnames.


Atenveldt, Kingdom of. Badge for Kingdom Royal Archer. Or, a sheaf of arrows inverted sable within a bordure indented azure.


Gavin Featherstone. Name.


Gemma Ginevra Alighieri. Device. Per chevron inverted azure and argent, a domino mask and two hearts counterchanged.


Mariana Vivia de Santiago. Device change. Argent, a heart gules winged sable within a bordure embattled azure.

Her former device, Argent, a heart sable winged gules within a bordure embattled azure, is retained as a badge.


Nathaniel Urswick. Device. Per chevron inverted argent and vert, a brown bear's head erased proper and two candles enflamed and ensconced argent.

Good cant!

Philipp von Eisenberg. Name change from holding name Philipp of Mons Tonitrus.


Phillipos the Skeptic. Name change from holding name Phillip of Twin Moons.

Submitted as Phillip the Skeptic, the name was justified as lingua anglica form of the Greek name Phillipos skeptikos. However "The use of lingua franca translation is extended only to single, simple descriptives. Given names, for instance, may not normally be translated into their putative meaning.(Talan Gwynek, LoAR December 1995, pp. 21-22)." Therefore, we have changed the name to Phillipos the Skeptic; while Skeptic is not a reasonable late period English byname, it is a fine translation of the Greek epithet meaning "a follower of the school of Phyros."


Veronica da Asola. Device. Per bend sinister gules and argent, a bend sinister sable between two quatrefoils counterchanged.


Wyllym of Atenveldt. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name). Azure, a walrus couchant guardant and a chief wavy argent.

Submitted under the name Wyllym MacLeod.



ATENVELDT RETURNS by the College of Arms, April 2005:


Wyllym MacLeod. Name.

Aural conflict with Uilleam MacLeòid, registered January 1997. The two names are pronounced identically. His armory has been registered under the holding name Wyllym of Atenveldt. Name and device. Per pale sable and gules, on a sun within an orle Or a triskele sable.

No documentation was submitted for the byname the Bull, although the commenters provided copious documentation for it. Submissions heralds, please remember that all elements in a name must be documented. In addition, the summarization claimed that the byname was registerable under the lingua anglica rule. However, lingua anglica is for translations of attested bynames in languages other than English. To assert that a name is registerable under the lingua anglica rule, it must first be documented in its original language.
