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

The following submissions were approved by the SCA College of Arms, November 2019:

Aine Starsdotter. Name and device. Azure mullety, a domestic cat couchant guardant, on a chief wavy argent three sets each of a feather inverted and an artist's brush in saltire purpure.
Submitted as Aine Starsdottir, Gaelic and Old Norse cannot be combined if the elements are dated after 1100. The earliest attestation of the Gaelic given name Aine is from 1169. Therefore, this name could not be registered as submitted.
In commentary, Lillia Crampette proposed and documented Aine Starsdotter as a combination of Gaelic and English. With the submitter's permission, we have made this change for registration.
Artist's note: Please draw the cat and mullets larger to fill the available space.

Cassandra Bakere the Chirurgeon. Name (see PENDS for device).

Caye Dance the stori-makere. Device.

Ermesinde de Champaigne. Device. Argent, two chevronels vert between two fleurs-de-lys sable and a hummingbird hovering purpure.
There is a step from period practice for the use of a New World hummingbird as a charge.

Finna in rauða Hrafnsdottir. Name.
Submitted as Finna _ Hrafnddottir, this name conflicts with the recently-registered Finna Hrafnsdottir. The submitter requested that we add the descriptive byname in rauða to clear the conflict. As this request was made within sufficient time to research documentation and check for conflicts, we are happy to do so.
In addition, the byname was incorrectly formed. In Old Norse patronymic bynames, the father's name must be in the genitive form. The genitive form of Hrafn is Hrafns. Therefore, we are registering this name as Finna in rauða Hrafnsdottir.

Misty of Atenveldt. Holding name and device (see PENDS for name). Per chevron azure and vert, a chevron rompu and in base a wolf statant argent.
Artist's note: Please draw the wolf larger to fill the available space.
Submitted under the name Úlfrún Bergsdóttir.

Philippe de Dauphiné. Name change from Batu Kharbuci and device. Argent, a dolphin haurient azure finned gules, on a chief enarched azure an arrow argent.
The name alludes to the purchase of the territory of Dauphiné by Philippe VI of France, but is not presumptuous because there is no evidence that Philippe was ever known as "Philippe de Dauphiné."
The submitter's previous name, Batu Kharbuci, is released.
Artist's note: Please make sure to color the belly fin gules.

Seonaid inghean Uí Mórdha. Name (see PENDS for device).
Appearing on the Letter of Intent as Seonaid inghean Ui Mordha, the name appears on the submission form as Seonaid inghean Ui Mórdha. No explanation was given for the change by Kingdom. We remind Submissions Heralds that all changes must be summarized on the Letter of Intent for Pelican's benefit. In this case, restoring the diacritical marking in Mórdha requires including the diacritical marking in inghean Uí, as Gaelic names must omit or include diacritical marks consistently throughout. We have changed the name to Seonaid inghean Uí Mórdha for registration. If the submitter prefers the name without any accents, she may make a request for reconsideration.
Questions were raised in commentary about the feminine given name Seonaid. Seonaid is registerable as the standardized Gaelic form of a woman's name that appears as Soonayd and Soynoid in the Book of the Dean of Lismore. That manuscript was not written in Gaelic, but used a modified form of Scots spelling conventions to try to express Gaelic sounds. Although we do not know the actual spelling of the underlying Gaelic name, Seonaid is sufficiently plausible to allow it to be registered.

The following have been returned for further work:


The following have been pended until the April 2020 Laurel meetings:

Aurora Faw. Badge. Azure, two sea-unicorns erect addorsed regardant tails entwined argent armed Or.

This device is pended for redraw due to identifiability issues caused by the small size of the horns. Sea-horses and sea-unicorns have a DC for type only if the features of the unicorn are clear and unambiguous. British unicorns have horns perpendicular from their foreheads and beards. Because of the lack of hindquarters and the possibility of finned forelegs, beardless sea-unicorns must have more prominent German-style horns. Wreath staff has redrawn the artwork and sent it to the submitter for approval.
This was item 2 on the Atenveldt letter of August 31, 2019.

Cassandra Bakere the Chirurgeon. Device. Azure, a mortar and pestle and in chief a baker's peel fesswise argent charged with a loaf of bread palewise proper.
This device is pended for redraw due to blurring the distinction between charge groups. Wreath staff has redrawn the artwork and sent it to the submitter for approval.
This was item 3 on the Atenveldt letter of August 31, 2019.

Seonaid inghean Uí Mórdha. Device. Per pale sable and vert, a scorpion Or and a natural tiger's head couped Or marked sable, on a chief Or three lotus blossoms in profile sable.
This device is pended for redraw due to the lotus blossoms and tiger's head being depicted in a modern style, with the flowers not drawn correctly as cup-shaped flowers. Wreath staff has redrawn the artwork and sent it to the submitter for approval.
There is a step from period practice for the use of a natural tiger's head.
This was item 8 on the Atenveldt letter of August 31, 2019.

Úlfrún Bergsdóttir. Name.
