Howdy all,

This just resurfaced after being moth balled for a year or two. Wanted to 
see if the docs were still good and there still were no conflicts:

Conchobar - OCorrain and MacGuire, "Irish Names", pg 57, s.n. 'Conchobhar', 
lists as being seen from 882 to the middle ages

mac Aonghuis - Woulfe, "Irish Names and Surnames", pg 320, s.n. mac 
Aonghuis, (no date)

Basically this would be pronounced 'Conner mac Anghus' I think. There are a 
fair number of ways to get 'Angus' in period and I do not have a listing of 
all the ways so if someone does and can conflict check it I would appreciate 

What I had originally for the device is not longer acceptable for the 
submitter. He wants:

'Argent, three wolves courant in annulo sable'  and will accept a bordure 
vert if necessary.

He may also accept basically the opposite in tinctures (Sable field with 
white puppies) and an appropriate tincture change for the bordure if 

I remember something similar being submitted by another kingdom to Laurel, 
but the tinctures were completely different and I have no idea if it passed 
or not.

Let me know what you can find out so I can get this into submission before 
it falls into another black hole
