Kate Monk's Onomastikon

(Dictionary of Names)

Medieval English names

Names are usually listed under their modern spelling and as many are still in use, to save space I have listed their meanings under the modern equivalent. Meanings for Biblical, Latin, Greek and Germanic/Norman names can be found in English First Names and there are separate sections for Norse, Celtic, and Saxon names.
