Re: The Real Story from Kofryna the Goatherd...
As for a goatherds naturally having goats on their device. I do not
believe that traditionally this was the case. Device did not generally
relate to one's name or occupation...though I suppose maybe some could be
nicknamed after it? Would someone with real knowledge like to step in
The appropriate terminology for having your device depict a part of your
name is called canting. I can think of two examples of canting arms in the
SCA that was done superbly. The examples that I can think of are Lady
Stephania Hering has a red herring on her device and one that was passed
several years ago for a Lord Isenhart in which his device has two hearts with
the letter I on each heart.
