Subject: Medieval French Diminutives
Author: Alejandro   (guest,

Lists of choirboys in French cathedral records of the 15th century give just their first names in diminutives, e.g. Malynet [= Malin], Pieret [= Pierre] etc., one that I cannot trace to its "grown up" form is Hanotin, any suggestions?
Is there any good book on medieval first names and diminutives?
