409 Anglo Saxon Baby Names With Meanings

If you want a name that is sophisticated, stylish and plain beautiful, you should scroll down to see MomJunction’s list of Anglo-Saxon baby names.

Anglo-Saxons were originally a Germanic tribe from the Danish peninsula. When the Romans left Britain, the Germanics invaded it in 400 AD. In the Anglo-Saxon period, the personal name was made of two elements and linked in some way or the other with the parents’ names. For instance, if the parents were named Aldred and Edith, they might name their daughter Aaldith. Hence, these dithematic names did not really have any meaning. Also, bynames, not surnames were used for identification purposes.

While there weren’t any surnames or family names, the aristocratic people were identified by names taken from famous forbearers like Besingas, Athelings, Baducings, Gumeningas, along with the final element –ing, which means ‘people of’. The Anglo-Saxons also believed that a name contained a person’s spirit and by using the name for a newborn child, the spirit could drain from him.
