      Okay, so I did a little research and depending on WHEN she's playing a Bohemian, she can also have a German, Latin Christian, or Magyar name.

      Here are a couple of sites

      http://everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=1464573
      (This is for men, but too good not to share. It's the names of Monarchs beginning in 850)

      http://www.behindthename.com/nmc/ger_f.php
      (This is a site on German names and gives the origin of the name-- you'll have to do a little extra research to nail down the exact date as they aren't listed)

      and from the same site

      http://www.behindthename.com/nmc/cze.php
      (Czech names)

      and

      http://www.behindthename.com/nmc/rom-late.php

      http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/guntram/kosice.htm
      (more German names from St. Gabriel's Academy)

      http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/womenssurnames.html
      (15-16 century German Women's Surnames)

      and in searching for names, I came across this, which was too cool not to share--

      (A Medieval Bohemian Book Collection, with pictures!)
