I thought I'd share this website with you all.

They mention lots of ancient Germanic names that I have never heard of,including Germanic gods from the various German tribes,for example:
ZISA- Gender:Feminine Usage:Norse Mythology Suevi/Schwaben.

DACEY - Gender:Feminine&Masculine Frequency:Rare Usage:Irish
From a Celtic surname meaning Southerner or from the South

DAEGAN - Gender:Feminine&Masculine Usage:Galician
Daegan means "black-haired" in Gaelic.
