Greetings and well-met!

Here are the results of Laurel's Letter of Acceptances and Returns 
dated August 2013:

Now registered:

Caius Equitius Rectus Xerxis. Name and device. Sable, on a plate a sun 
gules, in base a pair of stag’s attires argent.

Elizabeth Anne Draper. Name and device. Per bend azure and vert, a 
threaded needle bendwise sinister and a three-legged pot argent.

Maaline of Coeur d’Ennui. Device. Ermine, a domestic cat sejant 
guardant queue-forchy collared and chained sable, an orle purpure.

Mór Glasscock. Name and device. Argent, on a goblet purpure between 
three daisies sable a cock argent.
This name mixes a Gaelic given name and an English byname; this is an 
allowable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
Nice cant!
Please advise the submitter to draw the daisies with internal 
detailing.

Rohese de Dinan. Alternate name Casilda Manrique de Lara.
Nice 16th century Spanish name!

Zachariah Lochrie. Device. Gules, an inescutcheon Or, in chief two 
plates and a base enarched argent.

Pended until January 2014 meeting:

Lonely Tower, Barony of the. Order name Order of the Keystone of the 
Barony of the Lonely Tower.

The clearly registerable form of an order name using a place name like 
the Lonely Tower would not use the designator Barony of . This is pended 
to discuss whether or not the designator Barony of can be registered as 
part of an order name. We note that the submitter does not allow major 
changes, so that if the phrase Barony of is not registerable, this name 
must be returned (barring changed instructions from the submitter).

There are period citations of order names that use phrases like Stola 
Aragoniae Regis "[Order of the] Stole of the king of Aragon." However, 
none use words like "kingdom." We look forward to further discussion of 
this issue.

This was item 3 on the Calontir letter of May 13, 2013.

Also, here are the results of Laurel's Letter of Acceptances and 
Returns dated September 2013:

Now registered:

Alcynon of Aston Tor. Name and device. Per chevron azure and Or, a 
comet fesswise Or and a crequier azure leaved gules.

Submitted as Alson Nonne, the submitter indicated that she preferred 
the name Alcynon if it could be identified, and authorized the addition 
of the byname of Aston Tor (the registered name of an SCA branch) if the 
given name could be identified.

Commenters were able to document Alcynon and Alcinon as names in late 
period French romances, including the early 15th century Histoire de la 
première destruction de Troie 
(http://books.google.com/books?id=wWZfAAAAMAAJ) and the 1610
Histoire du siège des muses, ou parmi le chaste amour 
(http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k63136911/f187.image). It appears 
to be a variant of the better attested classical name Alcyoneus, which 
was the name of both a giant and several human figures.

Thanks to Diademe and Eastern Crown for the research. Thus, the name 
Alcynon is registerable under the literary name allowance. We have thus 
changed the name to the submitter’s preferred form in order to meet her 
request. Aston Tor is the registered name of an SCA branch.

Commenters discussed whether or not there was a unity of posture issue 
under SENA A3D2c with this design. There is not, as while a comet as 
depicted in the SCA falls into the long skinny inanimate charge 
category, a crequier does not. This is a
registerable arrangement.

Alcynon of Aston Tor. Badge. Per chevron azure and Or, two crequiers 
azure leaved gules and an otter’s head cabossed Or.

Ambrogio di Dionisio Acciaiuoli. Reblazon of badge. Per bend sinister 
ermine and counter-ermine, a rose counterchanged sable and
argent, a bordure gules crusily formy argent.
Blazoned when registered in November 1983 as Per bend sinister ermine 
and counter-ermine, a rose per bend sinister sable
and argent, barbed and seeded proper, within a bordure gules, crusily 
patty argent, we no longer use the term patty as it is
ambiguous.

Arne Sørensen. Name and device. Per pale gules and sable, a Thor’s 
hammer argent within a torque Or.

A previous submission, Arnórr Sørensen was returned at kingdom because 
the elements were too far apart in time and space. However, this return 
was in error. All the elements in this name are within a single naming 
pool under Appendix C and within 500 years. Therefore, this could have 
been registered in the original form. If the submitter prefers that 
form, he may make a request for reconsideration. However, he would have 
to release this name to do so, as you can only get one name for each fee
paid.

Crespin de Laon. Name.
Nice 13th century French name!

Faustus Cantilius Lupus. Name.
The submitter requested authenticity for the 1st or 2nd century CE. The 
name is not authentic for that time, but it is registerable. The 
praenomen and the cognomen are dated to the 1st century BCE, while the 
nomen is dated to the late 3rd century BCE.

Hadassah filla de Solomó. Name.

Inga in danska. Device. Azure, three annulets interlaced one and two 
argent between three roses Or.

Miklos Farma. Device change. Gules, a tower argent goutty de sang, an 
orle of gouttes d’eau.
His previous device, Per pale argent and Or, an ypotryll rampant to 
sinister within a bordure vert, is retained as a badge.

Morgana of Raglan. Device change. Or, a winged mermaid proper crined 
gules wings displayed crowned of a county coronet, a bordure
vert.

Her previous device, Per bend sinister vert and Or, two melusines 
counterchanged, is retained as a badge.

The submitter is a countess and entitled to display a county coronet.

Returned at Laurel for further work:

Ximena Etxeberria. Name.
The spelling Etxeberria is a modern Basque spelling of a place name 
normally spelled Echeberria in Castillian contexts. The spelling 
Echeberria is dated to before 1600; commenters could find no evidence 
that Etxeberria was found as a spelling before the mid-20th century 
spelling reform of Basque. Barring evidence that this is a period 
spelling, this name cannot be registered as submitted. We would change 
the byname to Echeberria in order to register the name, but the 
submitter allows no changes. Thus, this name must be returned.
