SENA refers to The Standards for Evaluation of Names and Armory, the current rules for submissions.

My decision and comments are prefaced with ROUGE SCARPE: and are in red. Items that are accepted will be forwarded to Laurel as a Middle LoI posted on OSCAR.


1: Alastar Acton -New Name & New Device

Argent, in pale a dragon statant vert sustaining in its claws an oak leaf fesswise azure

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Argent, in pale a dragon statant vert sustaining in its claws an oak leaf fesswise azure.


2: Aleksei Vasilev -New Device

Azure, a domestic cat dormant and a base Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Azure, a domestic cat dormant and a base Or.

3: Arianna of Shadowed Stars -New Device Change

Per chevron azure and vert, a female ibex rampant gardant Or maintaining in its mouth a sprig of coffee proper

ROUGE SCARPE: Returned for low contrast of the sprig of coffee. The sprig of coffee is primarily dark with and is not identifiable on the azure portion of the field. Also, it looks like this is the defining instance of a coffee plant, so documentation for the charge will also be required. It will need to be documented to meet the temporal and geographic sections of SENA GP.3. http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#GP3


4: Arianna of Shadowed Stars -New Augmentation of Arms

Per chevron azure and vert, a female ibex rampant guardant Or, maintaining in its mouth a sprig of coffee flowered and fructed proper, and for augmentation in base a jebena Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Returned for the reasons cited in the base device return. In addition this would be the defining instance of a jebena for the College. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jebena says it is part of a ceremony considered "traditional" in the 21st c., but that does not date it to our period. Note also that according to the same article this is an Ethiopian jebena or a spouted jebena as opposed to the Eritrean model.


5: Artare Macgregour -New Name & New Device

Argent, a manta ray azure

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. The submitter asked for authenticty for Scots Gaelic and said the sound AR-tare was most important. A fully Gaelic name might be <Artúr mac Griogair> but this will go against his desire for the sound AR-tare. Artare Macgregour is registerable as a Englisn given name with a Scots byname. The submitter has been messaged to determine whether they prefer the Scots Gaelic or the form submitted.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Argent, a manta ray azure.


6: Artare Macgregour -New Badge

(Fieldless) A manta ray azure

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: (Fieldless) A manta ray azure.


7: Ásbjǫrn seli -New Name & New Device

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Per saltire Or and purpure, two foxes courant to sinister purpure.


8: Aurelia Rosetti -New Name Change

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel. So far there has not been documentation found for the single s spelling in period and it is likely to be changed to the double s spelling which is attested to period. The submitters registered primary name is Sorcha Brecc ingen Donnchada. Sorcha ingen Donnchada, the name on the form, is an alternate name also registered to the submitter.


9: Berthold Ernst -New Name & New Device

10: Crónán Colach -New Name & New Device

Argent, on a four-leaved shamrock vert a caterpillar statant argent, on a chief engrailed vert a sword argent

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Submitter should be aware that Crónán Colaig is more authentic for someone living before 1200 and with the authenticity request it may get changed to that spelling.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Argent, on a four-leaved clover slipped bendwise vert a caterpillar statant argent, on a chief engrailed vert a sword argent. This appears to be the defining instance of a catapillar in SCA armory but a commenter provided documentation for it.


11: Drengi Svensson -New Name & New Device

Per saltire sable and vert, a pair of flaunches Or, each charged with a fox's head couped, addorsed gules.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. There is a possible conflict with "Beni Svensson" registered Nov 2015. It looks like by recent rulings it may be clear but it is a call close enough it will need to be made by the Pelican Herald.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Per saltire sable and vert, a pair of flaunches Or, each charged with a fox's head couped, addorsed gules.


12: Edward of Thorn -New Device

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel.

15: Kenneth Kincaid -New Name & New Device

Argent, a wolf rampant to sinister azure maintaining in its sinister forepaw a sheaf of lightning bolts Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Argent, a wolf rampant to sinister azure maintaining in its sinister forepaw a sheaf of lightning bolts Or. The color and black and white forms we received had different depictions which changed which paw was maintaining the lightning bolts.

We have redone the form with the corrected color emblazon from the black and white.
