Names in Anglo-Saxon England

Thanks to Anne Gilbert for showing me this site. The Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England is a database which aims to cover all of the recorded inhabitants of England from the late sixth to the end of the eleventh century. It is based on a systematic examination of the available written sources for the period, including chronicles, saints’ Lives, charters, libri vitae, inscriptions, and coins. It’s a great resource for determining names for your characters if you’re writing a historical fiction piece based on the medieval, Anglo-Saxon England time period.
