Abstract:

An evaluation of competing etyma for the common word base of the prototheme of an Old English dithematic personal name exploits the truism that the data on which we base reconstructions of Old English language and culture are, oxymoronically, not ‘given’, but are themselves open to (re-)interpretation. Illustrated here is recourse to theories of names and name formation, to orthography, and to theories invoking common word lexical semantic fields, in a minor experiment in Imagining the Anglo-Saxon Past and its language(s).
