The main focus of the present collected volume is placed on early medieval personal names, which are examined for their value as sources both for linguists and for historians. There is a discussion of Germanic, Romance and Slavonic names. In addition, there is a paper dealing with pre-historic place-names, and one looking into the future under the title of ‛Project in the field of early medival onomatology and prosopography’. The papers collected in this volume were delivered at an international interdisciplinary conference on the subject held at the Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg from 25th - 29th October 2007.
