Do you know the source for this list? Or a way to contact the people who have it posted? I only read English:-) I need to know where and when these names are from and if they are taken from period sources.
Thanks,

It is my own list....

All names are found in relyable books......

There are many names short still!

I didn't take notice of any date of usage of these names!

Some names are still used nowadays.... so it doesn't matter for me!

For me the meaning was the most important issue!

Can I help with something else?

Thanks. I'm looking for list of Germanic names that were used in the Renaissance. I'm part of a German Renaissance group. If we were being completely accurate we would have alot of christian names (Johan, Anna, Kristina) but we try and put a more Germanic twist on it while still using period sources:-)
