CALONTIR acceptances

* Agamemnon of Forgotten Sea. Badge. Sable, an ounce salient contourny reguardant argent winged Or.

* Agnes von Heidelberg. Badge. Argent, on a bend between two daisies azure three hawk's bells palewise Or.

* Áine Táilliúir. Badge. (Fieldless) A sea-coney Or tailed azure.

* Amon Attwood. Badge. (Fieldless) In pale a flame proper issuant from a tankard vert.

* Aveline d'Arcey. Name.

The submitter requested authenticity for "1066 Normandy/French language/culture." Unfortunately, this name does not meet that request because we were unable to document both elements of the name in the submitted spellings that early. As submitted, the name may be authentic for late 13th century French, but we cannot say for sure.

The submitter may be interested to know that, in the form Avelina d'Arcey, the name is authentic for the mid-12th century. Heralds at the Pelican decision meeting found the place name Arcey dated to 1150 in Ernest Negre, Toponymie générale de la France, Vol 1. s.n. Arcey. The Latinized French spelling Avelina is dated to 1147 s.n. Ava in The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, Edition 2017 (http://dmnes.org/2017/1/name/Ava). If the submitter prefers Avelina d'Arcey, she may make a request for reconsideration.

* Caterine le jeune. Device. Per chevron azure and argent, two mullets of four points Or and a bird volant bendwise sinister sable.

* Edwin Parker. Name and device. Quarterly sable and vert, in pale an acorn slipped and leaved and two stags statant respectant Or, a bordure argent.

Nice English name from circa 1200 onwards!

* Eleanor Deyeson. Badge. Bendy sinister engrailed argent and azure, an escallop inverted Or.

This badge is not in conflict with the Herald's Seal of Triton Herald, (Tinctureless) A triton-shell trumpet bell in chief, nor with the badge of the Order of the Whelk of the Barony of Tir-y-Don, Gyronny argent and azure, a whelk, bell in chief, Or. In both, there is a DC for changes to the field, and a second DC for inverting the primary charge, which per SENA A5G7c explicitly carries a DC for escallops. Whelks and escallops are considered interchangeable in period armory.

* Elias Sadd. Name and device. Per chevron argent mulletty sable and vert, a caltrop argent.

Nice late 16th century English name!

* Gerald Goodwine. Badge change. Argent, five dogs statant in annulo, legs to center, sable.

There is a step from period practice for charges in annulo not in their default orientation.

The submitter's previous badge, Argent, five dogs, statant coward to sinister in annulo, legs to center, sable, is released.

* John of Avondale. Name.

In the Letter of Intent, Avondale was documented as a constructed place name. In commentary, Lillia Crampette found Avondale as an attested place name from 1485 in the Records of the Parliaments of Scotland to 1707 (http://www.rps.ac.uk/mss/1485/5/3).

Nice 15th century Scots name!

* Kikuchi Yoichi Yoriie. Device. Vert, in fess two bamboo stalks argent.

There is a step from period practice for use of non-European flora.

* Kikuchi Yoichi Yoriie. Badge. Argent, in fess two bamboo stalks vert.

There is a step from period practice for use of non-European flora.

* Laurentz Strand. Name and device. Azure, a chevron vair en point sable and argent and overall a sea-lion Or maintaining with its tail an anchor in base argent.

* Lelia Corsini. Badge. (Fieldless) An owl erminois.

Nice badge!

* Lelia Corsini. Badge. (Fieldless) An owl vert.

This badge is not in conflict with the badge of Brian of Leichesterm, (Fieldless) A dodo close vert armed Or. The form and silhouette of a dodo is round and poultry-like.

Nice badge!

* Malina de Naunton. Name and device. Argent, a cross moline disjointed and a bordure nebuly purpure.

* Mathilde Frubicke. Name and device. Gules, a cross patonce throughout between in base two swans naiant Or.

Submitted as Mathilde Frühbeck_, the Letter of Intent argued that Frühbeck could be constructed as a German surname. Unfortunately, the proposed construction is not supported by the etymologies and other period usages of the elements Fruh- and -beck. However, heralds at the Pelican decision meeting found the very similar attested surname Frubicke in the FamilySearch Historical Records. As the submitter allows all changes, we have changed the name to Mathilde Frubicke for registration.

* Melodia de Canterbury. Name and device. Per fess embattled sable semy of musical notes argent and argent, in base three penguins azure.

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

Artist's note: Please draw internal details on the penguins to aid in their identifiability.

* Twilleliah Taillur. Badge. (Fieldless) A sea-rhinoceros argent tailed azure.
