ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel.
3: Gwydion Gwrando -New Name & New Device
Per chevron sable and vert two trefoils of oak leaves and a hawk migrant to chief Or.
Name returned for lack of documentation for the byname. All that was
provided was an unattested claim that <Gwrando> was Welsh for
"listen". We were able to verify that
<Gwrando> does have that meaning but no indication that it was used as a byname or follows an attested pattern for Welsh bynames was found. Submitter would need to show that <Gwrando> was used in period as a byname or that it follows a documentable pattern of period practice.
Device returned along with the name. If the name had not had problems of its own the device would have been returned for redrawing for its own issues. The per chevron line of division is two low, it should extend above the mid point of the escutcheon so that it divides the field into roughly equal portions. Here the point of the line of division just reaches the fess line and the sable area is significantly larger than the vert. Commenters had difficulty identifying the oak leaves. The hawk was recognizable as a bird but not necessarily a hawk. There is a step from period practice for use of hawk migrant but that is the only one. Colored pencils are also not the best media, the sable specifically could use to be colored in darker and more solidly.
4: Rśnvišarstašr, Shire of -Resub Device
Per pale azure and sable, a Norse sun cross Or between 4 crescents in saltire horns outward and in base a laurel wreath argent.
Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Per pale azure and sable, a Norse
sun cross Or between four crescents in saltire horns outward and in
base a laurel wreath argent. There was concern that the crescents were
a little too small. The crescents and the laurel wreath should be
about the same side. Our hope is that a artists note will be deemed
sufficient. The registered spelling of the shire's name is
