This is a Merge Project page.

Central Profiles

NB: Be aware that almost all Anglo-Saxon women had very similar names, and these were used more or less interchangeably. Thus the name itself tells you nothing; parents, husbands and children must be reviewed to be sure of identity. Do not merge without checking all connections and sources first.

Ealdgyth no known parents, widow of Sigeferth (Morcar's brother), later married to Edmund II Ironside

Ælfgifu daughter of Morcar, married to Ælfgar, son of Leofric and Godiva (see below)

Naming Conventions

See generic Naming Conventions page.

  • Name as close to original name as possible, language, geography and time period to be taken into consideration

    • Titles usually go in the Last Name field
    • Additional titles in Work with year frame
    • Adjust First Name field to avoid misunderstandings or mistaken identity where necessary, by adding order/number or byname.
    • Maiden names are normally avoided as there were none at the time
    • All names a person is known by in any source listed in Nicknames: bynames (especially in English), additional titles, variations.
