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, January 2017:
Alexandra Starling of Ravenspurn. Device. Purpure, a chevron inverted of chain Or conjoined at the point to a lighthouse Or flammant gules.
Andrassy Magyri of the Lowara. Reblazon of device. Pean, a chevron gules and overall a tyger sejant Or.
Blazoned when registered in October 1976 as Sable ermined Or, a chevron gules, overall a tyger sejant, Or, langued and orbed gules, we are changing the blazon to use more standard tincture terminology.
Magnus inn hugpruði Ulfsson. Name and device. Or, a boar statant sable and on a chief rayonny gules a tau-rho Or.
Submitted as Magnus inn hugprúði Ulfsson, accents need to be used (or omitted) consistently in Old Norse names. As the submitter did not use the accents in the given name or patronym, we have removed the accent from hugpruði for registration.
This is the defining instance of the tau-rho in Society heraldry. This staurogram is constructed out of the Greek letters tau and rho. It dates as a written symbol to the 4th century and was still in use as a decorative motif in the 11th century. It is as acceptable in the Society as the chi-rho, a similarly constructed symbol.
Serena the Lavendere. Device change. Per saltire purpure and argent, in fess two feathers sable and issuant from base a demi-sun Or.
The submitter's old device, Per pale purpure and argent, a butterfly counterchanged, is retained as a badge.
The following submissions were returned for further work, January 2017:
Cirina Badartai. Name change from Serena the Lavendere.
This name must be returned because Badartai is not a properly constructed Mongol name element (or even a properly constructed Mongol word). The Letter of Intent argues that Badartai is a constructed byname intended to mean "monk," based on the Mongol verb badarcila. However, in Mongolian, the suffix -tai cannot be added to a verb to create a noun or a byname. The submitter allows no changes so we could not correct this name to a registerable form.
When considering her options for resubmission, the submitter may be interested to know that, in commentary, Ursula Green Staff documented the following Mongol words and titles usable as bynames: ubasi or ubasanc (monk, often used for a woman); toyin or doyin (perhaps the most common Mongol term for a monk); qo{sv}ang (for a Buddhist monk); gab{sv}es (title for a Buddhist monk who has completed advanced study); gejuni (Tibetan monk in charge of novices); and simnanc, {sv}amnanc or {sv}imnanc (monk/nun). As the submitter requested a feminine name, the terms ubasanc, toyin or simnanc would be most appropriate.
Riane Goch. Device change. Gules, on a plate a sword gules surmounted by a dragon's head erased sable.
This device is returned for multiple issues.
This design violates precedents which forbid multiple tertiary charge groups on the same underlying charge. The sword and head form two distinct charge groups on the plate.
If we did treat the sword and the dragon's head as a single group of tertiaries, this would be returned for conflict with the device of Edwin Bersark: Gules, a roundel so drawn as to represent a round shield battered in long and honourable service, argent, with only one DC for adding the tertiary group.
On redesign, please advise the submitter to draw the erasing with slightly more amplitude.
