Kingdom of Atenveldt
ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS
Letter of Intent
30 November 2018, A.S. LIII
Unto Juliana Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,
Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms. Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.
1. Gunni Blóðøx:
NEW NAME and DEVICE
The name is Old Norse. Both elements are found in The Old Norse Names, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson. Gunni is a male given name on p. 10 and the byname is found on p. 20.
The client desires a male name. The sound of the name and the language (Old Norse) are most important to the client.
Dubh inghean ui Mordha (Pantheon) comments that the name may conflict
Gunnar Bloodax, registered July 2015.
She notes that <Gunni> is one of the names in GB that warrants
further documentation, as it does not come from any of the main known
sources, and it may be that Gunni is something other than a
nominitive version of the name
The drops in the original submission used the prohibited non-period teardrop; Orle Herald provided a wonderful reemblazon, and the client agreed to it.
2. Lisette du Lac: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Sable, a melusine crined Or and tailed vert between three fleurs-de-lys argent.
The name is French. Lisette is documented to 1528 in "Late Period Feminine Names from the South of France," Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/latefrenchfem.html).
is a locative byname "of the lake", based on "Late
Period Feminine Names from the South of France," Talan Gwynek
Alys Mackyntoich demonstrates du Lac in Dauzat et Rostaing, p.
376, s.n. Lacq, citing Lac to the 13th century.
The fleurs appeared somewhat dismembered; again, Orle provided a lovely reemblazon, and the client agreesdto it. There was also some commentary of a proper melusine on a sable field, but we hope that even with the additional tail, she will be considered a neutral charge.
There is 2 New Names and 2 New Devices. There are a total of 4 items submitted on this letter.
I was assisted in the preparation of this Letter with Commentary by Etienne Le Mons (Sea Stag), Gunnvor silfraharr (Orle), Lilie Dubh inghean ui Mordha (Pantheon), Madoc Arundel (Garnet), Michael Gerard Curtememoire.
you to those who provide your wisdom and patience, your expertise and
your willingness to share it.
as tu Mika-Mysliwy
