Excerpt from Family Names From the Irish, Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Norman and Scotch Considered in Relation to Their Etymology: With Brief Remarks on the History and Languages of the Peoples to Whom We Are Indebted for Their Origin

Keltic names have presented far greater difficulties. The changes through which the name passes must be considered, and not merely the sound when translated into English. Books of travels, histories, and popular tales, are here indispensable aids to the dictionary, especially when writers have been good enough to give with any thing like tolerable accuracy the genuine word rather than their Anglicised construction.

While surnames and local names have often been discussed, and that very poorly in the large majority of cases, the Christian name has generally been considered too fortuitous to merit notice. Camden did indeed review the current ones of his day, giving many correct explanations, but Verstegen, who followed him up, was more specu lative, and, consequently, less correct. Since his day, no English author seems to have given any reliable information to the subject. It is true that a few lists of names and meanings have appeared in magazines and popular works, but they have generally been copies of Verstegen, with puerile and incorrect additions. One paper, which was published a long time ago in Chamber's Journal, was the only truly valuable paper on English names en masse that has appeared Since he wrote.
