I agree re Moseley.

I know a Tristan, he goes by Triss.

Thanks so much everyone. We both like Tristan (rather than Tristram) but always thought it didn't have a nn & that put us off (we like nns) - could we get away with Stan? (squoosh we do call Alfred Alf).

ImpYCelyn, Titwald's hilarious! (Actually, I think I'd prefer it to Oswald - Moseley is too strong an association I think.)

There's a Saxon name table pddarkages.pbworks.com/w/page/15205921/Saxon%20Name%20Tablehere so you can break them all down and see what they mean

I cheated with the Æ thing. I copy and pasted it from googlesmile

Thank you, I love Taliesin & AEthelwulf (I should so work out how to do the AE thing if I'm gonna continue down this path). There's already a cousin George.

Æthelwulf. Wolfie for short.

George? Good royal names smile

Taliesin.

I love this name.

history here

I think it would go well with Alfred and the nn Tal or Tally is super gorgeous.

We used the modern spelling but like the name because of its meaning Elf Counsel as well as its trad Englishness. Also really like that he can choose a nn from it.

Any ideas for his little brother?
