Greetings to All,

The results for the April 2016 LOAR are below. (NO RETURNS!!!!)

There will be a delay in the update of the Armorial.

We are working on getting the Armorial linked up with the new incarnation of the OP.

In Service,

CALONTIR acceptances

* Eric Saint Leger.  Name and device. Quarterly lozengy gules and Or, and azure, on an eagle argent a shamrock vert.

* Geraint ap Hywel Glyndyfrdwy.  Name.

* Michael Reid of Atholl.  Name.
Submitted as Michael Reid , this name gives the appearance of being the father of Sean Michael Reade, registered through Caid in September 1994. Although the bynames are different in appearance, they are identical in sound. To clear this relationship conflict, the submitter has allowed the addition of a second byname, of Atholl, found in Black, dated to 1592. We have made this change to register this name.
Michael and Reid were both documented in the Letter of Intent as English name elements. In commentary, Ogress found both elements in 15th and 16th century Scotland. Michael is found in the Records of the Parliaments of Scotland to 1707 (RPS), dated to 1440, and in the FamilySearch Historical Records, dated to 1572. Reid is found in RPS, dated to 1479 and 1570. Therefore, this name is wholly Scots.

* Rahil Isfahani.  Name and device. Per chevron ployé throughout gules and Or, two suns and a wolf salient counterchanged.

* Russell of the Bushes.  Name and device. Or, a brown dog's head erased proper, a bordure vert semy of acorns bendwise sinister Or.
Russell is the submitter's legal given name. It is also an English name found in the FamilySearch Historical Records, dated to the late 16th century. Therefore, the submitter need not rely on the legal name allowance.

* Titus Iustus de Nova Terra.  Name and device. Gules, on a mullet of eight points argent an escarbuncle sable.

* Viga-Valr viligísl.  Device. Quarterly argent and gules, four annulets counterchanged.
Nice device!

* Viktor von Wedel.  Name and device. Sable, in pale three pine trees blasted and eradicated argent.
This name combines a Polish give name and German byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
