Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
This is an Addendum to the February 2014 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. Please have commentary to me by 20 February 2014. Thank you!
Please consider the following submissions for the February 2014 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Bianca Charbonneau (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE
Argent, an owl displayed and on a chief sable three fleur-de-lys argent.
Bianca is a female Italian given name found in “Late Period Italian Women's Names: Venice,” Juliana de Luna, http://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Venice.shtml, (these are taken from 15th and 16th C. records), and several other MNA papers. Charbonneau is a French family name, dated between 1422 and 1659 via several Google books sources (I've been unsuccessful in having the URL cooperate). Olivier Charbonneau was born in1611, Quebec, Canada, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/MZQM-RF5, Batch A21695-1.
The combination of Italian and French name elements is allowed in SENA Appendix C.
The client desires a female name and is most interested in the language/culture of the name (none given). She will not accept Major changes to the name.
The portrayal of an owl displayed is one Step from Period Practice.
Denton Tanner (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE
Per bend argent and azure, a chamfrom and a horse's head couped contourny counterchanged.
The name is English. Denton is listed as a byname, dated to 1541, in “Dictionary of Tudor London Names,” Sara L. Uckelman, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/tudorlondon.pdf. SENA Appendix A allows for both double given names and double bynames, and in the LoAR 9/2012 Cover Letter, late period English given names can be derived from family names. The IGI Family Search notes a Jones Denton Hudson marriage in 1633 (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NL8G-LJS, Batch M00930-1 ).
Tanner is the client's legal given name; it is also an occupational byname dated to 1576 and 1582 in “Dictionary of Tudor London Names,” Sara L. Uckelman, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/tudorlondon.pdf.
