Greetings unto Master Dafydd Blaidd, Dragon Herald, Barun Rory mac Feidhlimidh, Rouge Scarpe Herald, and the commenting members of the Midrealm
College of Heralds; from THL Geniveve Rose D'Glendalough, Escutcheon Herald.

This is the July ILoI. Apologies for the extreme lateness of this letter. My web deputy had a major computer crash which took some time to repair and recover from.

Unless noted, clients will accept minor changes and a holding name.

All comments are due by October 15, 2008.

1) Britta Oscarsdottir (F) -– New Name and Device -- Quarterly purpure and argent, between in bend two swords palewise Or and in bend sinister two ravens close, a cross throughout sable.


Britta was a Swedish feminine given name from 1200-1299 according to Arynhwy merch Catmael in her articles “Swedish Feminine Given Names 1200-1299” and “Swedish Feminine Given Names from SMP” viewable at

Oscarsdottir : according to Aryanhwy merch Catmael, “to create a patronym the suffix <-dóttir> was added to the genitive form of the father’s name”

Oscar: Found in Withycombe’s O.E.D. of Christian Names, p. 235 states there was an English name “Osgar” and a corresponding Norse “Asgeirr”. “Oscar” was used in MacPherson’s Orsian Poems as the son of the Celtic god Orsian. Appears as “Osgar” … “and had doubtless been carried to Ireland by the Danes.”

Escut. Note: Client will NOT accept Major changes to name. Cares most about sound. Will accept any spelling of Oscarsdottir
Client copied forms in a way that a lot of the words on the right hand margin were cut off and Esct had to guess at a few of them.
