* Ęželwyn ęt Grenawice. Device. Per pall inverted azure, vert and argent, two lilies argent and a crow purpure.

* Cerric ęt Blęcac. Name (see RETURNS for device).

Submitted as Cerric ęt Blęchoc, the byname has been changed to ęt Blęcac to fit the submitter's requested meaning. The submitter requested a byname that means "black oak." However, Blęchoc was based on elements meaning "black" and "hook," not "black" and "oak." Metron Ariston advised that an Old English place name meaning "black oak" would likely be Blęcęc or Blęcac. As the submitter allowed all changes, we have changed the byname to ęt Blęcac, which is in the correct case (dative) and is the smallest change to the submitted form.

Even if it had the desired meaning, ęt Blęchoc is not grammatically correct for Old English. As noted above, place names following ęt take the dative form. In this case, the correct form is likely ęt Blęchoce. If the submitter would prefer this form, despite its meaning, he may submit a request for reconsideration.

The submitter requested that ęt be dropped from his name if possible. Appendix A of SENA allows only for marked locative bynames in Old English. No evidence was provided supporting the use of unmarked locatives. Thus, the ęt must remain.

* Hrafn inn ķrski. Name and device. Quarterly arrondi sable and vert, a raven volant bendwise argent.

Nice Old Norse name!

* Neathery of Safita. Device change. Sable, a comet and on a chief argent three ravens sable.

The submitter's old device, Sable, a comet and on a chief argent three crosses bottony gules, is retained as a badge.

* Ogawa Matajirou Ujimori. Name change from Tanaka Ujimori.

The submitter's previous name, Tanaka Ujimori, is retained as an alternate name.

* Ųyrķkr Rašślfsson. Device. Sable, a chevron vert fimbriated between three wolves' heads cabossed Or.

* Thomas Wunderer von Leipzig. Device. Lozengy argent and vert, a rhinoceros and a bordure sable.


CALONTIR Returns

* Ayisha bint Asad. Badge. Azure, a horse courant argent, in chief a mullet of eight points Or.

This badge is returned administratively. There was no mention on the Letter of Intent that this armory had been redrawn after kingdom commentary, nor whether the submitter had approved the redraw.

* Cerric ęt Blęcac. Device. Azure, on a plate an oak tree eradicated vert trunked sable.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Joorkin Volz: Azure, a labyrinth argent. A labyrinth is treated as a diapered roundel. Thus we get a DC for adding the tertiary tree, but nothing for type of primary charge.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of Catrin of Llanbadern: Azure, on a plate a rowan tree proper all within a bordure engrailed argent.

* Ķvarr smetta. Name and device. Gyronny of six arrondi vert and Or, a Hungerford knot its ends terminating in serpents' heads addorsed gules and a bordure gules bezanty.

This name was withdrawn by the submitter.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." As depicted, the snake heads disappear due to the low contrast with the vert section of the field they're against. On redraw, please make sure that the arrondi shape of the gyronny line is clearly visible as some commenters had trouble seeing it.

Had this device not been returned for redraw, it would have been returned administratively as the name had been withdrawn and an armory submission needs a name to which it can be linked.
