GUEST,Santa BS: The MOST British given name of all is... (178* d) RE: BS: The MOST British given name of all is... 09 Nov 07

Alfred would do for a good English name that has lasted. Or Edwin? Oswald was around until recently but not many people called Hengist and Horsa nowadays.

It occurs to me that Frederick is another Germanic version of Alfred - does that imply two different Teutonic roots/routes?

My mother was Winifred. Sounds Anglo-Saxon, but possibly related to Guinevere, which has British roots - unless old Geoffrey didn't know the difference when he wrote out the old tales.
