Naming Conventions

  • Name as close to original name as possible, language, geography and time period to be taken into consideration
  • Anglo-Saxon names for Anglo-Saxon people (see the FMG-site listed above for info if unsure)
  • Titles usually go in the last name field
  • Adjust first name field to avoid misunderstandings or mistaken identity where necessary, by adding order/number or byname.
  • All names a person is known by in any source listed in “nicknames": bynames (especially in English), additional titles, variations.
