Greetings unto THL Kriemhilt von Ebersberg, Dragon Herald, Meister Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe Herald, and the commenting members of the Midrealm
College of Heralds; from Brynn Herleifsson, Escutcheon Herald.

All comments are due to Rouge Scarpe and Dragon by September 25, 2011

1) Beatrice Bella Cantante (F) – New Name


Beatrice -
Appears in the online Castato of Florence, 1427, as cited at under both Beatrice and Beatrix.

Bella Cantante -
intended as a descriptive byname ("beautiful singer") which would be idiomatic Italian for "sings beautifully." "Bellavocce" (Beautiful voice) would also be acceptable.

Escutcheon's Note:
Client will accept major and minor changes, and cares most about meaning, and asks the name be corrected to be "idiomatic of 14th-15th C. Firenze (Florence) Italian dialect."



2) Pierre de Montereau (M) – New Badge - "Vert, a dolphin naiant to sinister and a base urdy argent charged with a rose gules within a circular strip argent inscribed with the motto sable and secured in base with a fetterlock sable "

Starleaf Gate

Escutcheon's Note:
Client's name was registered in March of 2004 via the middle.

3) Tomasso Francesco (M) – New Name and Device- "Azure, a llama statant to sinister argent"


Tomasso -
Italian equivalent of Thomas as given by St. Gabriel referencing this source:

Francesco -
Locative byname for "The Frenchman" in the manner of Giovanni di Bernardon (1181), who was called "Francesco" by his father:

Escutcheon's Note: Client will accept major and minor changes, cares most about language/culture (Italian), and requests it be changed to be authentic for 14th century Northern or Central Italy. Client notes the intended meaning is "Tom from France"

Client provided additional documentation indicating that llamas are not a period charge but giving several SCA precedents for them, the most recent dating to 2009, and also indicating that knowledge of llamas was period.
