Greetings to All,

In Service,


Gunnar Thorisson

Vert Hawk Herald


CALONTIR acceptances

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#213> Bartholomew Thorpe. Name.

This exact name is found in England in 1593 in the FamilySearch Historical Records, making this an excellent late 16th century English name!

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#214> Bridget Edan. Device. Or, a triskelion of horse's heads between three holly leaves in annulo vert.

There is a step from period practice for the use of charges (here the leaves) in annulo not in their default palewise orientation.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#215> Emma Ness. Name and device. Azure, a mouse rampant queue-fourchy and in chief three cinquefoils pierced, on a chief nebuly argent two cinquefoils pierced vert.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#217> Goldcorn Moon. Device. Azure, a decrescent moon argent, a bordure Or estencely azure.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#218> Hirakawa Saburou Kagetora. Name (see RETURNS for device).

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#216> Inuhara Fuyume Sara. Name change from Aífe ingen uí Chanainn.

Submitted as Fuyume Rasa Inuhara, the submitter requested authenticity for the Japanese Heian period or earlier.

In Japanese names, the family name always precedes the given name. In this case, Inuhara must come before the given name Fuyume.

Rasa was constructed from the elements RA and SA, using on'yomi or Chinese "readings" for the kanji rather than the native Japanese readings. In commentary, Solveig Throndardottir noted that this is an unlikely construction. Specifically, the Chinese reading RA is only found as a second element, with the examples Tora and Nara found in NCMJ. The Chinese reading SA is found in both positions, with the examples Samiko, Sanko, Usa, and Yusa (among others) found in NCMJ. Therefore, Solveig suggested instead the form Sara, reversing the order of these elements. She noted that Sara could be considered an assumed religious name and would follow the given name (see pp. 29-30 of NCMJ).

Therefore, as the submitter allows all changes, we have changed the name to Inuhara Fuyume Sara to register this name.

The submitter's previous name, Aífe ingen uí Chanainn, is released.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#220> Lochie Cameron of Kinross. Name and device. Purpure, two swords in saltire between in pale two annulets and in fess two thistles argent.

Lochie is the submitter's legal middle name.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#211> Mesia Montana Sainte Germaine. Reblazon of device. Purpure estencelly, three chevronels braced argent within a bordure ermine charged with four crosses formy in cross purpure.

Blazoned when registered in June 1995 as Purpure estencely, three chevronels braced argent within a bordure ermine charged with four crosses patty in cross purpure, we no longer use the ambiguous term patty.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#222> Rianorix of Forgotten Sea. Device. Sable, a cross doubly-cotised Or.

Nice device!

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#223> Uaithne inghean uí Ruairc. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Submitted as Uaithne inghean uí Ruairc, the name was inadvertently entered into OSCAR as Uaithne ighean uí Ruaírc. We have restored the name to the submitted form.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#225> Úlfr Þorgrimsson. Name.

Nice Old Norse name for the 9th or 10th century!

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#226> Zafara Baabur. Name change from Bridget Fleming.

The submitter's previous name, Bridget Fleming, is retained as an alternate name.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#227> Zaneta Baseggio. Alternate name Clara Brown.

This exact name is found in England in 1593 in the FamilySearch Historical Records, making this an excellent late 16th century English name!


CALONTIR returns

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#212> Ana Elena de Castil. Device. Sable, on a pile inverted throughout gules fimbriated between two eagles a cross of Santiago Or.

Although blazoned on the letter of intent as Sable, on a pile inverted throughout gules fimbriated between two eagles a cross of Santiago Or, this device can also be blazoned as Per chevron throughout sable and gules, a chevron throughout between two eagles and a cross of Santiago Or. Since we have to consider conflict under any possibly registerable blazon, this device is returned for conflict with the device of Máel Dúin Dubh mac Diarmada: Per chevron sable and gules, a chevron between three mullets Or. There is only one DC for the type of the secondary charge group.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#219> Hirakawa Saburou Kagetora. Device. Per pale sable and Or, two roundels and three wolf's teeth inverted issuant from dexter and as many from sinister counterchanged argent and sable.

This device is returned for redraw. The depiction of wolf's teeth that don't touch at the bases is problematic. Per precedent, upheld in the return of Ambrose Wyld, on the LoAR of Nov 2015:

The depictions we have found of wolf's teeth in period heraldry invariably have the teeth conjoined at the base. We encourage this depiction of wolf's teeth, but will accept emblazons where the teeth are not quite conjoined as in this submission. The wolf's teeth must still reach, or nearly reach, the per pale line. [Konrad Rickert, July 2008, Atenveldt-A]

Here, the teeth are more than "not quite conjoined": they're separated by a space almost equal to their own widths.

There is a step from period practice for the use of inverted wolf's teeth [Michael von Guttin, 12/06 Atenveldt-R].

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#221> Marcella of Forgotten Sea. Badge. Gules, a cockatrice displayed Or maintaining a needle bendwise argent threaded vert.

This device is returned for contrast issues. As depicted, the thread has very poor contrast with the field, which impairs identifiability.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Feb16LOAR/16-02lar.html#224> Uaithne inghean uí Ruaírc. Device. Per bend sinister wavy azure and argent, a decrescent argent and a triskelion of spirals vert.

Blazoned on the form and the Letter of Intent as azure, the upper portion of the field appears purpure both on the form and in OSCAR. We are returning this device so that the submitter can clarify their intent.

There is a step from period practice for the use of a triskelion of spirals.
