I'm late to the party but Chanticleer would be my suggestion. Coming from the Canturbury Tales (so appropriate for the time period) evocative of a rooster, often associated with song. And for the Don Bluth fan in me - a reference to the animated movie where the titular hero was also an Elvis analogue. ;)

Just a thought about your feathers in the corners - have you considered switching which corners they sit in? Most people, I suspect, would hold a hand of cards the way your photo does, which puts the feathers in the visible corner, and might be less helpful to colourblind players than the usual symbol.
