I started to gather together lists of British and Irish place-names found in Old English, which are arranged county-by-county below. It does not contain every place-name found in the sources!

To these I have added some unverified names, some derived backwards from their current names or names found in the Domesday Book, according to the best place-name authorities, or created afresh as needed, and if that sounds unprincipled, it is to assist those who insist on writing modern work in Old English.

One problem with place-names is that they usually appear in the dative. This is not consistent; some later texts do not change the name to the dative. Sometimes only the dative form may have been used. I have let myself in each case reconstruct the nominative. Some then, those which end in -um are plurals which I have put as -as. (One name at least does show this as a correct approach "wocingum" (dative) and "wocingas" (nominative) both appear in the Chronicle.) If you take the name down for writing you will be putting it back in the dative for the most part. Nevertheless, I have stayed with the convention of writing the list all in the nominative unless indicated otherwise. That is not to say that I have always go it right.

The other problem is of course that most places are not found in any authentic source. Where it is found in Middle English (or Middle Scots) or in the Domesday Book, a reconstruction is fair scholarly game.

This is very much work in progress.

Notes on each table belowEdit

The tables county by county below have three columns: (1) name in Modern English, (2) name found in an authentic source and (3) a name which may be unverified or assumed or derived or invented for convenience.

I have, for ease, added initial capitals.

Those names in column 3 marked with an asterisk* are derived or invented, using established principles, for the convenience of those who compose new works in Old English. They will not be found in any Englisc source (and some such towns were founded or known to the Engle-cynn only after our period). Some towns known before the Norman time have since then gained a suffix to denote former manorial ownership (as Melton Mowbray), and I have marked the inauthentic suffix the same way.
