Heraldry is the science that studies the coats of arms or shields.

Traditionally, the heraldic shield is related to the family name of the person to whom it was granted. For that reason we call it "the name shield", although the term is not entirely correct.
It is appropriate to speak of the lineage to which a certain coat of arms belongs.
