This name combines an Old English given name with an Old Norse byname. This lingual mix is permitted under Appendix C as long as both elements are dated prior to 1100 C.E.

An entirely Old Norse form of the same name is Alrekr upplendingr. If the submitter is interested in this form, he should submit a request for reconsideration.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Sept16LOAR/16-09lar.html#137> Cuthbert Longschankes. Badge. (Fieldless) On a nesselblatt per pale azure and Or, a Celtic cross argent.

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

Nice 16th century English name!

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Sept16LOAR/16-09lar.html#141> Konstantia Kaloethina. Heraldic title Greek Fire Herald.

This title is based on the lingua Anglica form of the attested Feu Gregoiz Pursuivant, dated to 1435.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Sept16LOAR/16-09lar.html#142> Owain the Younger. Name and device. Per chevron Or and sable, two sheaves of arrows inverted and a hunting horn counterchanged.

The spelling Owain was not documented in the Letter of Intent. During commentary, Siren found this spelling in British Records of the Wardrobe and Household, 1286-1289 (

The byname the younger is found in the Oxford English Dictionary, dated to the 15th century.

Please advise the submitter to draw the per chevron line of division steeper or higher on the field.

*<file:///E:/Armorial/Sept16LOAR/16-09lar.html#144> Rhiannon of Anglesey. Name change from Rhiannon of Crystal Mynes.
