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
    • Gaelic names for Scottish/Gaelic speaking people as far as possible
    • Patronymics in the Middle Name field
    • 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.
    • 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.
