LETTER OF PRESENTATION Kingdom of Atenveldt
Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baron Seamus MacDade, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,
Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
Please have commentary to me on the proposed submissions for the December Letter of Intent by 25 December 2018. Thank you!
Please consider the following submissions for the December 2018 Atenveldt LoI:
Batu Kharhvaach (Barony
of Atenveldt): NEW NAME
Euphemia Kathrine Marie filia Dougal (Tir Ysgithr): NAME and DEVICE RESUBMISSIONS from Atenveldt, March 2014
Argent, three roses purpure barbed vert and seeded Or, issuant from base a trimount vert.
was returned for use of an unregisterable name (Cerridwen). Because
the name was returned, the original device, was returned as
The client desires a female name; she will not accept Major Changes to the name.
The original device submission, Argent, three double roses purpure and argent barbed and seeded proper and issuant from base a mountain vert. There was no problem with conflict with this original design, and I am trying to contact the client (which I'll likely have to do with the name resubmission) to see if she'd prefer the original submission. I include that here.
Kim Senggum (BoA): NAME RESUBMISSION from the holding name William of Atenveldt, Laurel, August 2018
The client's previous name submission, Kim Samguk, was returned for the following reasons: “Although Kim is well-attested as a Korean family name, we found no evidence to support the construction of the given name Samguk. The term Samguk in Korean means "three kingdoms" and is a poetical term used to refer to Korea in 13th century Korean writings. We were unable to find evidence of Koreans using such terms as name elements. We were also unable to construct Samguk from period Korean elements. Accordingly, this name must be returned. The submitter's device is registered under the holding name William of Atenveldt.” The client's registered device is Sable, a natural tiger rampant Or striped sable, on a chief Or a bow sable.
The client wishes to use a Korean clan name with a Mongolian given name. Current naming practices allow the combination of Mongolian element with Arabic, Hungarian/Romanian, Persian, Russian/East Slavic and Turkish (Appendix C: Regional Naming Groups and Their Mixes, http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html). The client asks that Korean be added to that group based on the following history of the Mongols and the Koreans:
After the death of the Keraites leader Ong Khan to Chingis Khan's emerging Mongol Empire in 1203, the Keriat leader Nilqa Senggum led his followers into Western Xia. (The Keraites were one of the five dominant Turco-Mongol tribal confederations (khanates) in the Altai-Sayan region during the 12th century.) Part of this attack was on Chingis Khan, and this failed as well as the major assault in the area, and Nilqa Senggum was expelled from the Western Xia territory. There were several invasions by the Mongol Empire against Korea, 1231 to 1259, during which time the Mongols annexed the northern areas of the Korean peninsula into its Empire and its people became vassals to the Mongols. (http://www.fsmitha.com/he/h11mon.htm; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongol_conquest_of_Western_Xia; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Jun_(Goryeo))
Kim, "gold," is a family name of a group that rose to power and became the rulers of Silla for seven centuries (https://www.britannica.com/story/why-are-so-many-koreans-named-kim). The name is not considered presumptuous, as the clan was so huge that it remains the most common family name in Korea today.
Rayyan al-Rashid (BoA): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Sable, a simurgh close and a demi-sun issuant from base Or eclipsed sable.
The name is hopefully
Arabic. The client is Lebanese-American by birth and desired a
Lebanese/Persian/Arabic name, something similar to his legal given
name (Ryan). In the Hadith (a collection of traditions containing
of the prophet Muhammad), there is a gate of Paradise called the
Gate, one that only those who regularly fast may enter. In modern
is a city in Qatar, and Reyyn
are the given names of several Saudi, Tunisian, and Lebanese-American
athletes. However, we're at a loss to find Rayyan/Rayan/Reyan as a
masculine given name/'ism
and are looking for help!
Rummana Arora (BoA): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Purpure, a unicorn's head couped and on a chief argent three hearts gules.
Rummana is a female given name; Rummana Hussain (1952–1999) was a modern Muslim artist from India (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rummana_Hussain). The name comes from the Urdu, meaning either a plum-purple color or a pomegranate; in the Quran Chapter 55, The Beneficent: “Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? Therein are fruits and palms and pomegranates.” The pomegranate is used as a food and a dye in the Middle East and India, mking it a valuable “bounty of the Lord,” much like a daughter. Again, help it sought for the name.
As far as finding this as an Arabic name, Rumayla is a feminine 'ism ("Son of the Hot-Tempered Woman": Women's Names in Arabic Bynames, Juliana de Luna, http://medievalscotland.org/jes/ArabicMatronymics/).
Arora is a Hindu and Sikh name based on the name of a mercantile community of the Panjab. It is derived from a place name, Aror (now known as Rohri, in Sind, Pakistan). According to legend the Aroras are of Kshatriya stock, but denied their Kshatriya origin in order to escape persecution by Paras Ram, calling themselves Aur, which means ‘someone else’ in Hindi and Panjabi. (https://www.ancestry.com/name-origin?surname=arora)
The client desires a female name and is most interested in the meaning and language/culture of the name (Urdu).
The following submissions appear in the November 2018 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Gunni Blóðøx (Atenveldt/Tir Ysgithr): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Sable, an axe inverted winged and headed argent, hafted Or, charged upon the axe-head with two gouttes de sang.
The drops used the prohibited non-period teardrop; Orle Herald provided a wonderful reemblazon, and the client agreed to it.
Lisette du Lac (Atenveldt/TY): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Sable, a blonde melusine proper between three fleur-de-lys argent.
The fleurs appeared somewhat dismembered; again, Orled provided a lovely reemblazon, and the client agrees to it.
