Late Period German Masculine Given Names
Names from 14th Century Plauen
These names are extracted from Volkmar Hellfritzsch, Vogtländische Personennamen
(Berlin: Akademie-Verlag, 1969).
Hellfritzsch sorted names according to their first recorded occurance in
his region, and then divided the data into 50-year blocks. Most of these
names remained in use through the end of our period. I suspect that
Eys is an exception which fell out of use fairly soon after the 14th
century, and that Dionysius was rare at any time. Lupoldus
very probably lost its latinate ending and continued in use as
Lupold. However, please keep in mind that these lists are not
exhaustive and bear no relation to the frequency of individual names.
In each column, names of Germanic origin are listed in the first section, and
names of Christian or Latin origin in the second.
