CALONTIR acceptances   
* Alane Smyth de Brodie.  Name. 
* Andreas of Green Village.  Acceptance of transfer of heraldic title Lupine Herald from Calontir, Kingdom of. Payment is required for transfers of heraldic titles from a branch to an individual unless the transfer was submitted to Laurel by the end of 2013 (see the July 2013 Cover Letter). This item was on a Letter of Intent dated prior to the cut-off.
* Calontir, Kingdom of.  Transfer of heraldic title Lupine Herald to Andreas of Green Village. Payment is required for transfers of heraldic titles from a branch to an individual unless the transfer was submitted to Laurel by the end of 2013 (see the July 2013 Cover Letter). This item was on a Letter of Intent dated prior to the cut-off.
* Calontir, Kingdom of.  Badge for Order of the Falcons Heart. (Fieldless) A falcon reguardant sustaining a scepter topped of a cross of Calatrava bendwise sinister Or. 
* Cian mac Lorccáin huí Chonaill.  Name change from holding name Dennis of Calontir. 
* Joie Anna del ffernyside.  Name and device. Per pale wavy Or and azure, four whelks bendwise sinister in pale and a bouquet of four fern fronds counterchanged. Submitted as Joianna del ffernyside, the documentation did not support adding -ana/-anna to a name such as Joia. For example, Susanna and Osanna are Hebrew names in origin, Juliana/Giliana is a Roman-era name, and Sedehanna is derived from a pre-medieval Latin name. The submitter indicated that an unspecified sound was most important to her. Eastern Crown documented a similar English given name, Joie (FamilySearch Historical Records, 1592). Therefore, the similar-sounding double given name Joie Anna is registerable. We have made this change in order to register the name.
* Robert of Grandloch.  Reblazon of device. Or, in chief a lion's head erased and in dexter base an anvil sable, a gore sinister azure. Blazoned when registered in February 1986 as Or, a gore sinister azure, in chief a lion's head erased, and in dexter base an anvil sable, the gore by definition is a peripheral secondary, and should come later in the blazon.
* Ronan O'Daire.  Name and device. Gules, a falcon's head erased contourny Or, a chief countercompony azure and argent. The attested Gaelic given name Ronan falls out of use too early to be temporally compatible with the Anglicized Irish O'Daire (or O Daire), but it is a saint's name, and thus, can be registered using the saint's name allowance.
The submitter may wish to know that an Old/Middle Irish form of the name is Rónán hua Dáire, and the Early Modern Irish Gaelic form would be Rónán Ó Dáire (with or without accents).
Gaelic and Anglicized Irish are an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
* Vatavia, Barony of.  Badge. Azure, a dragonfly between two dussacks in pile Or, a bordure countercompony vert and Or. This is the defining instance of a dussack in SCA heraldry. The submitter did not provide any documentation of its suitability as an armorial charge, but fortunately Batonvert provided the necessary documentation. A dussack is a curved practice sword with a distinctive looped handle.
CALONTIR returns     
* Fortunata Cercasapienza.  Device change. Azure, on an open scroll fesswise argent a candle and holder azure lit Or, on a point pointed a quill pen vert. This device is returned for redraw. The point pointed here is too high on the field, leading to potential confusion with a per chevron field division. The depiction of the point pointed on her previous device registration, which is very similar to this submission, was not as high as this one is, and the scroll there was better centered on the field. If this is redrawn with a better centered scroll and a smaller point pointed, it would be registerable.
