. . . there doesn't have to be a coherent overall meaning, does there! Oh well, so much for neatness :-D I'd suspect that the semi-random combining of name elements continued past those centuries, too, although it was probably less prevalent - it still goes on today in many languages, after all.

I'm about to leave work so I won't be online for a couple of hours - so if I don't reply during that time I haven't abandoned the discussion, I'm just not here! :-))

Hey, since you know a lot about Norse/Old German, you couldn't hop over to the opinion board and help me convince Flavie that Hayley isn't Norse and doesn't mean "heroine", could you?! Lol
