Interesting, but arms belong to the person, not the name (in England at least, whatever may be the practice in Scotland or elsewhere.)
The question is whether a person should be automatically armigerous by virtue of having an armigerous mother. To what passes for my mind, the applicable laws, if any, would be those related to gender equality and there should be no difference between males and females in respect of inheriting and transmitting arms. In answer to Charles Veale's question, I would say that children with no paternal arms would simply use their maternal arms.
