from, where you would have lived, what language you would have spoken,
etc., you pick a name that fits. For example, I am a late 12th century
Anglo-Norman, and my name is Cecilia de Cambrige (both the first name
[Cecilia] and the byname [de Cambrige] have documentation from England in
the year 1182, and the same or variant forms have been documented in
surrounding years). A good place to look around is the Medieval Names
Archive. I don't remember the website off hand, but if you type "Medieval
Names Archive" into the Google search engine (other search engines should
find it, too), it will be within the first few results. I hope this
Cecilia de Cambrige
