as I have recently learned Adalbert was the name chosen at baptism and not a
czech name, thus Ada is out. No biggie. I wasn't that attached to it.
What I'm wondering, is where do I find czech names. Believe me "go to your
library" is not going to help this time unless anyone has specific book
suggestions. I've been to two libraries over several hours and found nil.
The names you list above are a wonderful start... could you give me just a
bit more of a shove in the right direction?

little article on Common Names. However as I hinted before, the SIG
Bibliography listing for names sources should be updated soon -- probably
when the next Slovo comes out. You'll be able to tell when the page has
been updated because there will be a new separate section for "Czech and
Slovak" Names. The section will list just about all the books SCA heralds
are aware of on the subject of medieval Czech and Slovak names.
