Anthroponymy

(or anthroponomastics) is the study of the names of human beings. Linguists and researchers in many other fields take part in anthroponymic studies, including anthropologists, historians, political geographers and genealogists.

I am a genealogist in my normal every day life. Names and their origins have always fascinated me. It makes sense I share with you here what I have found in my studies of medieval names. Now, don’t get me wrong, being a genealogist doesn’t make me an expert at the study of names. That, for me too, is a learning process.

The purpose of this page is to help you develop your SCA persona, or as a herald help someone else create their persona.
