Kingdom of Atenveldt
Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baron Tymothy Smythson, Aten Principal Herald; the Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,
Greetings of the New Year from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
This is the May 2015 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation; it precedes the Letter of Intent with submissions considered for the next Letter of Intent. There appear to be no submissions at this time. I don't know if this is good, bad or something in-between.
Heraldry Hut: The April Heraldry Hut will be held Friday, 15 May, beginning at 7:30 PM. Please contact me for location.
Kingdom Collegium: I plan on attending the Collegium in the Barony of Atenveldt on Saturday, 6 June. I hope to teach a class in heraldic resources for book heralds (and folks not quite heralds but who are interested in the subject), essentially, how to make your computer make Heraldic Life easier), and around that, a Consultation Table. Submissions have fallen off drastically following Estrella, and I don't know if this is good, bad or something in-between. (Where have I heard that before?)
Please consider the following submissions for the April 2015 Letter of Intent:
William Devlin (Granite Mountain): NEW DEVICE
Per chevron sable and Or, an owl affronty counterchanged.
The name appears in the March 2015 Atenveldt LoI.
Xanthias Alexandros Casca of Monster Hall (Twin Moons): NEW NAME and DEVICE
Azure, a spear and a bordure embattled argent.
Xanthias is the name of several characters in Aristophanes' play, The Frogs. Alexandros Casca are elements of his father's registered SCA name, Matthias Alexander Casca. Of Monster Hall is an element of his mother's registered SCA name, Melissa of Monster Hall. Both parents have signed Permission to Claim Relationhip and with Melissa, for Attesting Legal Relationship with Xanthias, their son. The client desires a male name and is most interested in the language/culture of the name (showing the lineage elements, Alexandros Casca of Monster Hall). He will not accept Major Changes to the name.
The embattled edge should be deeper.
The following appear in the April 2015 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
I was assisted in the preparation of this Letter of
Intent by Alys Mackyntoich, Andreas von Meißen, Basil Dragonstrike,
ffride wlffsdotter, Gawain of Miskbridge, Caoimhin McKee, Christian
Jorgensen af Hilsonger, Illuminada Eugenia de Guadalupe y Godoy,
Magnus von Lübeck, Maridonna Benvenuti, Rohese de Dinan, Seamus mac
Riain and Vettorio Antonello. (Folks, we really do need more
commentary help by our own Kingdom's heralds!)

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, March 2015:
Candice Libel. Badge. Per fess wavy Or and azure, in pale two dragonflies volant fesswise that in chief contourny vert and argent.
Caye Dance the stori-makere. Name.
The byname the stori-makere ("story writer") was documented in the Letter of Intent as an occupation or description found in the Middle English Dictionary (MED).
Similar occupations and descriptive terms referring to writing are found in the MED: Rymour ("poet, minstrel"), tragedien ("a makere of dytees that highten tragedies"), Writere ("writer"), psalme-wrytter ("psalm writer"), chronicler, and text-writers. The MED also includes descriptions of classical authors and other writers: Affricanus, þe writer of stories; Erodotus, writer of stories; and Henr. Archer, textewriter. At least two of these, le Rymour and le Writere are period bynames.
stori-makere is not an attested occupational byname, we will
give the submitter the benefit of the doubt and can register this
name as submitted.
is the registered name of an SCA branch.
Please advise the submitter to draw the sails rectangular so they don't appear to be in trian aspect.
Leofwen Gunnarskona. Name.
Submitted as Leofwen Gunnarkona, the correct form of the marital byname is Gunnarskona. We have made this change in order to register this name.
In commentary, Metron Ariston noted that Leofwen may have been a normalized or inflected form. Period forms are Lefwen and Leofwenne (oblique form), from which we can interpolate the submitted spelling, Leofwen.
Woode Forester. Name and device. Argent, a tree stump
eradicated proper maintaining an axe sable hafted proper and on a
chief triangular sable a moon in her plenitude argent.
Twin Moons, Barony of. Order name Order of Harvests Moon and badge. Per fess argent and azure, in chief a moon in her plenitude gules, a bordure embattled counterchanged.
as Order of the Harvest Moon,
a harvest moon is not a plausible heraldic charge, and the
term itself could not be documented to period. However, Harvest
is a late period English surname, which be used as a given name.
Orders can be named after a given name and object of veneration.
Therefore, we have changed this name to Order of Harvests Moon
(using the period possessive form) in order to register this
submitter's old device, Per pale vert masoned Or and argent
masoned sable, a tower counterchanged argent and vert, is
retained as a badge. Nice cant!
The following submissions were returned by the Atenveldt CoH for further work, May 2015:
Dalbabhach Olcán (Granite Mountain): New Name
RETURNED for incorrect name construction (no corrections allowed at all).
