Medieval Musings

from getting-medieval.com

I love it when I come across names I’ve never heard of before, which you’d think would become more and more difficult for a name blogger such as myself. I personally think that it’s all in inventive google searchs. Right now I’m thoroughly excavating all names medieval. Abby at Appellation Mountain recently transported several popular female names back to the era, and Zeffy at Baby Names From Yesteryear has served up a selection of both male and female names from Medieval France.

Some names used in medieval times which you may have heard of before:

Alix

Amaury

Belsante

Clemence

Melisente

Roupen

Sybilla

Some names I’ve never come across include:

Amalric

Bertrade

Fleury

Foulque

Lithuise

Richilde

Sancho

Scholastique

Tancred

Theobald

I’m particularly taken with Lithuise and Fleury from the second list.
