Hello... looking for a little guidance please
- I am in the process of researching a new persona... which is proving
to be more difficult than anticipated (it will only make me
appreciate the hard work and time more, lol) Anyways, ehile I am
waiting for some books to become available I was trying my hand at a
name... ugh, again. I am trying to 10th c. Kievan Rus. I went to my
kingdom's site and looked at "Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Period
Russian Names." I also reviewed the following articles:
So I have the general gist of the feminine form of a masculine name.
I found the following in the dicitionary:
Emelian (m) -- "flattering." Emelian. Lived in the 9th century.
[Buk 18] ---- so now I am trying to figure out if the fem. form
is Emelia or Emeliana (I think it would be Emeliana.) Or am I just
out there flapping?
Your "2 cents" is truly needed here : ) Also, anyone with some
suggested reading, sites, ect... about early Kievan Rus, your input
is greatly welcomed. I am finding that sites repeat their
information alot on the web and I really wish I could read and write
Russian, lol, so it life : )
