ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per fess rayonny argent and sable, a dragon sejant azure and issuant to base from a cloud argent a lightning bolt Or.  There is a Step From Period practice for the use of a lightning bolt outside of a thunderbolt. 

 


 

2: Alban Dameron Elexander - Resub Device

 

Argent, a bend between a fleur-de-lis azure and a peacock feather proper, a bordure azure.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Argent, a bend between a fleur-de-lis azure and a peacock feather proper, a bordure azure.  The submitter should be aware that as of the June 2013 LoAR Cover Letter two charges in saltire will be considered one unit as far as issues of posture and orientation are concerned. This submitter's original design is now possible as long as the feathers are draw as to be identifiable.

 


 

3: Aldrick Blackstone - New Name & New Device 

 

Quarterly argent and sable, a cross gules and in dexter chief a rock sable.

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Argent semy of roses azure, a brown bear statant erect proper and a bordure azure.  The large blue roses act to reduce the ability to identify the black bear.  It is our hope that all will be needed is a artist not to draw smaller roses with more white space. 

 


 

5: Altani Unegen - New Name & New Device 

 

Gules, a fox courant and a bordure Or semy of roundels gules.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Gules, a fox courant Or and a bordure Or semy of roundels gules.

7: Angelo di Antonio Machiavelli - New Badge

 

Per pale sable and azure, two knifes in saltire argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per pale sable and azure, two knifes in saltire argent.  The submitter should be aware that this may have a conflict with Timothy Montgomery (reg. 06/1976), "Argent, in saltire two swords enflamed proper."  There is one DC for the field.  There may be another for the color of the swords enflamed proper, since this was not clear it is being sent up for further commentary and decision by Wreath.

 


 

8: Anna of Kirkaldy - New Name & New Device 

 

Purpure, a cross bottony and a in chief three dolphins haurient argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Purpure, a cross bottony and a in chief three dolphins embowed argent.  The dolphins were originally blazoned haurient. Given the choice of redraws of either natural or heraldic dolphins haurient or keeping the current emblazon the submitter chose the current emblazon. 

 


 

9: Anna of the Western Hill - New Badge 

 

 (Fieldless) A lizard tergiant palewise argent.

11: Benedetta Meglino - New Name & New Device

 

Sable, a (thing) argent issuant from a trimount Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Sable, a turning cratch argent issuant from a trimount Or.  This will be the first registration of a turning cratch.  Taken from a period roll of arms and originally blazoned as a (thing), the thanks go to Master Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme for tracking down what the charge is called; “In Randle Holme's "Academy of Armory", 1688, book III chapter VIII, the charge is named a "Turning Cratch". Looking up "cratch" in the OED, it seems to be a "rack or crib to hold fodder for horses or cattle", also "a movable rack for feeding beasts out of doors"; by extension, "a wooden grating or hurdle; a sparred frame or rack, for various purposes." The word dates to at least 1300, and seems to apply to this charge nicely; and it even seems, in one meaning, to match the German quasi-blazon from the German wiki.”

 


 

12: Bora Vachir - New Name & New Device 

 

Sable, a batwinged pithon migrant to chief, on a chief or a rapier sable.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Sable, a batwinged pithon migrant to chief, on a chief or a rapier sable. 

 


 

13: Cale mac Lonáin - New Name & New Device

 

Argent, a blackbird volant to dexter sable, a bordure embattled gules.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Cale O Lonan>.  There was too great a time difference between the Anglicized Irish given name and the Irish Gaelic patronymic.  It has been changed to a completely Anglicized form to solve this problem.  The submitter approved this change.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Argent, a blackbird volant sable within a bordure embattled gules.  I have been informed that “blackbird” has a significance to the submitter and they would prefer that it remain blazoned that way.  The submitter wanted the bordure to be gules but there was a potential conflict so it was colored azure. They are willing to be a test case as to whether a bird volant should be significantly different than a bird close which would clear that conflict.  Since the blazonhad gules on the ILoI and commenters looked into it as well we are recoloring the border and sending this up for a ruling by Wreath. 

 


 

14: Caleb Killian - New Name & New Device 

 

Argent, two wolves rampant addorsed vert and on a chief azure a lion's head erased Or

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Argent, two wolves rampant addorsed vert and on a chief azure a lion's head erased Or.

16: Ciarán Ó Raghilligh - New Name & New Device

 

Per bend sinister vert and sable, an anvil surmounted by a sword inverted argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Ciarán Ó Raghallaigh>.  The submitter had indicated a request for authenticity.  Several possible spellings were suggested in commentary.  The submitter was consulted with and they indicated they wanted this spelling of the byname and dropped the authenticity request, the spelling <Ó Raghallaigh> is appropriate after 1200.   Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per bend sinister vert and sable, an anvil surmounted by a sword inverted argent.

23: Diana de Daimiel - New Name & New Device

 

Vert, in saltire an arrow Or and a rapier inverted and on a bordure argent a blackberry vine in orle proper.

25: Ecgtheow Sigbercti sunu - New Name & New Device

 

Azure, a sword piercing a chain of five links fesswise between four mullets all within an orle argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as < Ecgtheow Sigberctes sunu>.  Old English does not form genitives by adding <-i>; that's a Latin ending. The appropriate genitive ending in this context is <-es>, which would make the byname <Sigberctes sunu>.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Azure, a sword piercing a chain of five links fesswise between four mullets all within an orle argent.  There was some question in commentary whether the chain should be considered a maintained or sustained charge.  If it is considered maintained it does not count for difference and there is a conflict.  If sustained then it is cleared of the possible conflict.  It is being forwarded for more commentary and a decision by Wreath.

 


 

26: Elan ben Tzvi - New Name

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel.

Azure, in fess a sinister hand appaumy, a roundel, and a dexter hand appaumy argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Award name forwarded to Laurel as < Award of Beaumains>.  The pattern used to justify the name was orders named after their founder.  If it was named after a person there should not be a “the” in the name so we have removed it.  Badge forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Azure, in fess a roundel between a pair of hands appaumy argent.

Per pale purpure and vert a raccoon rampant argent marked sable.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per pale purpure and vert a raccoon rampant argent marked sable.  There is a step from period practice for New World animals.  This possibly conflicts with John the Idiota (reg. 12/2000 via Atenveldt), "(Fieldless) A wolverine rampant argent." There is a DC for the field but there may not be one for a raccoon vs. a wolverine.  It is being forwarded for additional commentary and a ruling by Wreath.

46: James of the Cross - New Name & New Device 

 

Sable, a cross of Saint James, a bordure argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Sable, a cross of Saint James within a bordure argent.  This  conflicts with Anne of the Golden City (reg. 01/1974), "Purpure, a cross flory within a bordure argent." There is a DC for the field. There is currently none for the type of cross: “both the Santiago and Calatrava crosses are artistic variants of the cross fleury/flory. As such, they are identical for purposes of conflict.” [LoAR 10/2008].  However Yehuda ben Moshe added that, “Several heralds at Pennsic wanted to argue that there should be a DC between a cross flory and a cross of Saint James as they were distinct crosses in period heraldry. However, they did not have the resources at the point to support that.”  It is being sent forward to see if that case can be made in Laurel level commentary.

 


 

47: Johannes von Narrenstein - New Augmentation of Arms

 

Ermine, a Bohemian love knot azure within a bordure gules and for augmentation, on a chief Or a dragon passant to sinister vert and a tyger passant azure, maintaining between them a mask of comedy gules.

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Azure, two lions combatanant and on a chief Or  two swords in saltire surmounted by a third fesswize azure.  It was unclear in commentary if there was a unity of posture problem with the swords or not so it is being sent up for further commentary and a decision by Wreath.

Gules, a mascle and on a chief argent three lozenges gules.

59: Meadbh inghean Brenain - New Name & New Device

 

Per chevron Or and azure, two lions rampant and an oak tree eradicated counterchanged.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Meadhbh ingen Branáin>.  Submitted as <Meadbh inghean Brenain>.  The assertions made in the documentation summary have some errors.  <Meadbh> is not the spelling attested in the source cited it was <Medbh> which is a partially updated form.   We have followed the author of the sources commentary and changed it to the standard Early Modern Irish form of <Meadhbh>.  The genitive form of The genitive of <Branan> is not <Brenain>, it's < Branáin>.  Also <Branán> is documented as Middle Irish and <inghean> is Early Modern Irish. The fully Middle Irish form is <ingen Branáin>.  SENA PN.1.B.1 States that “A registerable name phrase must follow the rules of grammar and structure for a single time and place. It may not mix languages unless that mixing of languages within a name phrase is attested as a period practice.” (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN1B1)  The byname has been changed to the correct genitive spelling and made consistent for Middle Irish.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per chevron Or and azure, two lions rampant and an oak tree eradicated counterchanged.

 


 

60: Morgan MacAlpine Of Argyll - New Name & New Device

 

Per pall argent, gules, and sable, a roundel gules and two wolves addorsed sejant ullulant argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:   Name forwarded to Laurel.  Eastern Crown Herald supplied documentation for <Morgan> that attested it as a female name in period.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per pall argent, gules, and sable, a roundel gules and two wolves addorsed sejant ululant argent.  Wolves uluant are a step from period practice but it is the only one.

 


 

61: Muirenn ingen Morainn - New Name & New Device

 

Vert, a wolf statant ullulant and on a bordure argent in chief two mullets of four points gules and in base a mullet of four points azure.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Vert, a wolf statant ululant and on a bordure argent in chief two mullets of four points gules and in base a mullet of four points azure.  A wolf uluant is a step from period practice but it is the only one.

 


 

62: Murakami Genjirou Hirokado - New Name & New Device

 

Or, a dexter arm proper sleeved sustaining three artist's brushes purpure.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Or, a dexter arm proper sleeved sustaining three artist's brushes purpure.  Commenters were not sure if the brushes were actually sustained or maintained.  If they are ruled to be maintained there is a possible conflict; Friedrich Ethelred aus Schloss Trier (Aug 1986, Caid): Or, a dexter arm embowed and armored, maintaining an axe, sable. There is one DC for tincture of arm.  It is uncertain if armored vs. unarmored is another.  This is being forwarded for additional commentary and a ruling by Wreath.

 


 

63: Óli rauðr - New Name Change

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  The submitter indicated that the sound “Ollie” was most important.  The submitter should be aware that pronunciation will not be "Ollie". <Óli> has the same long "o" as in <Óláfr>, so it will sound like the first two syllables in "oleo", "OH lee". If the pronunciation is most important, a commenter suggested <Alli>, found in Lena Peterson's Nordiskt Runnamnslexikon, which is pronounced "AH Lee".

 


 

64: Pádraig Tomasswn - New Name & New Device

 

Azure, a pithon erect affronty wings displayed tail nowed Or, a chief argent

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Azure, a pithon displayed erect guardant Or, a chief argent.

 


 

65: Parvati Chandravanshi - New Name & New Device

 

Azure, on a crescent bendwise sinister argent a poppy gules slipped and leaved vert.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  I was unsure whether “legendary” was used to mean famous or mythological in regards to the surname.  If the name was not used by people in period but only in myth it will not be regesterable.  This is being forwarded so that it can benefit from additional commentary and a ruling by Pelican.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Azure, on a crescent bendwise sinister argent a poppy gules slipped and leaved vert.  There is a possible conflict:  Elisabetta Castagna (Aug 1995, East): Counter-ermine, on a decrescent argent a rose proper. There is one DC for the field. It is unclear if there is a DC between decrescent and a crescent bendwise sinister. There is not a DC for the slipping and leaving.  This is being forwarded for additional commentary and a ruling by Wreath.

 


 

66: Philipp Reimer von Wolfenbüttel - New Name & New Device

 

Per fess embattled azure and argent masoned sable, a demi-lion queue-fourchee issuant from the line of division or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Per fess embattled azure and argent masoned sable, a demi-lion queue-fourchee issuant from the line of division Or.  This should be clear of Wulfred Hansard of Richmond (Jan 2001, Meridies): Counter-ermine, a demi-lion maintaining a battle axe Or, with one DC for the field and a second DC for moving the demi-lion. 

 


 

67: Pinaria Minerva - New Name

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.

 


 

68: Pompeia Furia - New Name & New Device

 

Per bend purpure and gules, a hippopotamus rampant proper winged argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Device returned because there is no proper coloration for monsters according to precedent and thus must use a heraldic tincture.  Adding the wings to the hippopotamus makes it a monster and thus it cannot be brown even though a brown hippopotamus proper could be registered without the wings.  See the precedent:

December 2010 (Outlands-R)

Bernhardt Grimme. Device. Or, a brown bear's head cabossed proper attired of stag's antlers sable and in chief a cross crosslet gules. This device is returned for violating our restriction on monsters proper:

 

[returning a brown bull of Saint Luke] While we register brown beasts proper if the animal is found naturally brown, such as a brown rabbit, or a brown hound, this is not a beast, but rather a monster, because of the wings and halo. Since monsters do not have proper coloration, they cannot be brown. [Kamle Kropotove, May 1998 R-Outlands]

 

Adding antlers to a bear's head makes it a monster, not a beast. We apologize to the submitter for not noting this restriction in his previous return.

Richard Ealdwulf

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel.  Request for Reconsideration" specifies: "(b) submit a timely request that the name be changed to a form based on information provided in Laurel's (or the kingdom's) decision”.  Since it is hard to call this a timely request after thirteen and a half years it is being changed to a name change but this is an administrative thing only.

77: Sighni Alvadottir - New Name

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel as <Sighni Alvarsdottir>.  The genitive of <Alvar> is <Alvars> and not <Alva>.  Later Danish names use <-datter> instead of the Old Norse <-dottir> but I was unsure if that was appropriate for an Old Danish name so that portion of the byname was left as submitted.  It may need to change after more commentary to make the name wholly Danish.

Purpure, a silkie and a bordure embattled argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon:  Purpure, a silkie and a bordure embattled argent.  From the original return from 4/2012; “Without further evidence that the silkie or selkie was known in period, we will no longer register the charge. There will be an exception granted for a timely resubmission from this submitter.”  It is our belief that a year from earliest possible notification should be considered a timely manner and allow the submitter the opportunity to register the silkie.

89: XCenedra LeBref - New Name

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <XCenedra Le Bref>.  SENA PN1.B.2.e. Legal Name Allowance states “This rule can allow a name phrase which is not attested in period, but the name as a whole must still meet the other requirements for names. This includes issues with overall construction, conflict, presumption, and offense.”  (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN1B2e)  This name may violate PN2.E. Obtrusive Modernity.  (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN2E) This was the resounding opinion of the commenters but as the bar for obtrusive modernity is a bit vague so this is being forwarded for a ruling by Pelican.  The space has been added to the byname to match the documented and grandfathered spelling.
