Calontir Acceptances

Calontir, Kingdom of.
Transfer of heraldic title White Tyger Herald to Ines Alfón.

Geva de Kent. Device. Lozengy purpure and Or, on a chief invected Or three bunches of grapes purpure.

Martush Aleksandrov. Name and device. Gules, a chevron rompu between five Russian Orthodox crosses two, one, and two Or.

Rodrigo Hernández of Vatavia. Device. Argent, on a chevron purpure three dragonflies palewise Or.

Rohese de Dinan. Badge for alternate name Casilda Manrique de Lara. (Fieldless) On an escallop Or, a rose proper.
Nice badge!

Sciath of Calanais Nuadh. Device. Quarterly gules and Or, two frets couped Or.
This device does not create the appearance of marshalling. The appearance of marshalling can be created by having charges that terminate at the edge of a section or having different types of charges in different sections of the field. Here, neither the Or quarters nor the sections with couped frets, since they don’t extend to the end of the section, appear to be an independent pieces of armory. Thus, this design can be registered.

Wulf Werner. Name.We note that the originally submitted name, Wulf filius Werner, would also be registerable. Ælfwynn Leoflæde dohtor documented patronymic bynames that combine the Latin filius with the unmodified form of the father’s name to 13th century Germany. An example is Wernlinus filius Ermenrich, dated 1267 (Socin, p. 579). As the submitter prefers the fully vernacular form of the name, we are registering the form that appeared on the Letter of Intent.

Rodrigo Hernández of Vatavia. Name.
Vatavia is the registered name of an SCA branch.

Sofya la Rus. Name change from Sofya Rous and device change. Gules, an owl rising wings displayed argent.
The submitter’s previous name, Sofya Rous, is released.
This device is not in conflict with the device of Owain of Corn Valley: Gules, a peregrine falcon rising wings displayed Or maintaining in both talons a halberd bendwise sable There is a DC for tincture of the bird and, by precedent, there is a DC for the type of bird:

This does not conflict with Eve Nightstalker Azure, an owl striking Or, beaked and membered argent, orbed sable. I am hereby overturning the precedent declaring that raptors are raptors. Falcons and owls were different charges in period and have differing outlines; therefore we are allowing a CD (although not substantial difference) between them. For a fuller discussion see the cover letter. [Wojciech Bobrowski, Azure crusilly formy argent, a falcon rising wings addorsed maintaining a horseshoe inverted Or., 01/2000 Atlantia-A]

This device is not presumptuous of Nemanji{c’}i, Kings of Serbia Kings of Serbia , Gules, a double-headed eagle crowned argent, or Poland , Gules, an eagle displayed argent crowned Or. In both cases there is a DC between displayed and rising wings displayed, and another DC for the type of bird.
This device does not conflict with the badge of Widsith Devona of Exmoor: Per bend sinister sable and vert, a snowy egret rising wings displayed argent There is a DC for the field and another DC for the type of bird between owl and snowy egret.
Her old device, Gules semy of acorns Or, an owl argent, is retained as a badge.

From Gunnar Thorisson, Vert Hawk Herald:

CALONTIR acceptances:

  • Hadassah filla de Solomó. Device. Per bend Or and vert, a pithon contourny vert and an arm embowed bendwise sinister proper, a chief bendy sinister vert and Or.
  • Kýlan gylðir. Name change from Killian of Amlesmore. The submitter’s previous name, Killian of Amlesmore, is released.
  • Mór Bhallach inghean Domhnaill. Device change. Lozengy argent and gules, a cross of Saint Brigid and on a chief sable two flames argent. There is a step from period practice for the use of a cross of Saint Brigid. The submitter’s previous device, Argent, in pale three crosses of Saint Brigid sable, a dexter tierce indented gules, is retained as a badge.
  • Ximena Echeberria. Name and device. Gules, a bordure argent semy of saltorels azure. Nice device!

CALONTIR returns:

  • Rafe le Mountere. Device. Per pale sable and gules, two Celtic crosses and a mountain of three peaks argent. This device is returned for redraw for violating SENA A2C2 which states “Elements must be drawn to be identifiable.” Precedent says: The so-called “Celtic” cross is not. A Celtic cross is a specific type of cross, which has tapering arms. Adding an annulet to any particular type of cross does not automatically make it a Celtic cross. This “crosshair” depiction of a cross is not acceptable. [Sadb ingen Chonchobair, R-Atlantia, January 2010 LoAR]
