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

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, February 2020:

Courvis Douw. Name and device. Argent, a bend raguly between a raven and a wolf sejant contourny paw raised sable.

Dawn Greenwall. Device. Per fess Or and vert masoned Or, a demi-sun issuant from the line of division gules, a chief purpure.

Ellisif Eldr Grimsdottir. Name change from Elisabetta Malipiero (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Elisif Eld_ Grimsdottir, we have, for the following reasons, changed the name to Ellisif Eldr Grimsdottir. First, the documentation did not support the spelling Eld for the descriptive byname. The attested spelling is eldr. Descriptive bynames may be capitalized or not as the submitter wishes. Second, the submitter specifically requested an entirely Old Norse name. Therefore, we have changed the given name to the attested Old Norse spelling, Ellisif, rather than the submitted spelling, which appears later in time.
The submitter's previous name, Elisabetta Malipiero, is released.

Ilaria Volpe Della Scala. Name.
Submitted as Ilaria la Volpe Della Scalla, the documentation did not support the spelling of the locative byname. We have changed it to Della Scala to match the documentation.
In addition, we have no evidence for the pattern of Given Name + Marked Descriptive Byname + Locative in Italian. We do, however, have evidence for Given Name + Family Name + Locative in Italian. Therefore, we have changed the name to Ilaria _ Volpe Della Scala for registration.

Isabel Douw. Name (see PENDS for device).

Kunetil Guotman. Name.

Lucius James. Badge. Per pale sable and argent, a gorilla's head couped at the shoulders affronty, on a bordure an orle of ivy all counterchanged. February
There is a step from period practice for the use of a gorilla (or its head) as a beast not found in pre-17th century Europe.

Malin of the Vineyard. Name and device. Argent, a tree sable, on a chief gules three skulls argent. Submitted as Malin Vinyarsista, the requested byname cannot be registered because it is an entirely modern form. The submitter desired a byname meaning "of the vineyard(s)," but did not care for any of the Finnish forms suggested by Mór Albion and Pietari Töllöö. Instead, at the submitter's request, we have changed the byname to the lingua Societatis form of the Vineyard.

Mineko of Monster Hall. Name change from Mineko of Twin Moons.
Mineko is already registered to the submitter and thus is treated as neutral in time and language under the Existing Registration Allowance, PN1B2g, and can be combined with the constructed English place name Monster Hall.
The submitter's previous name, Mineko of Twin Moons, is retained as an alternate name.

The following were returned for further work, February 2020:

Ellisif Eldr Grimsdottir. Device change. Per bend sinister Or and gules, an ermine spot sable and a threaded needle bendwise sinister Or, a bordure compony sable and argent.
This device is returned for violation of SENA A3D2c reads, in part: "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation (in cross, combatant, or in pall points outward, for example). A charge group in which postures for different charges must be blazoned individually will not be allowed without period examples of that combination of postures."
In the July 2019 Cover Letter, it was ruled that there were three categories of comparable inanimate charges: compact orientable, compact non-orientable, and long charges. In this example, both charges are long charges for the purposes of Unity of Orientation. As the Cover Letter ruled, "If the charges in the charge group can be in the same posture, orientation, or arrangement that includes posture or orientation, they must all be in the same posture, orientation, or arrangement." These charges must be in the same orientation, but one is bendwise while the other is palewise. This is grounds for return.
This device is also returned administratively. The emblazon was redrawn after publication of the Internal Letter of Intent, but the external letter did not note whether the submitter had approved the redraw.

Ibsittu Dawid. Name change from holding name Celeste of Atenveldt.
We pended this name on the September 2019 Letter of Acceptances and Returns for additional research because our Ethiopian name resources are limited. Unfortunately, despite significant research work done by a number of heralds, we were unable to document the name Ibsittu to period. Therefore, we must return the name for lack of documentation.
