Introduction

The following names are taken from 13th and 14th century Latin records from Gascony. The names are hence all recorded in Latin, though some of the surnames are more lightly Latinized than others.

These Latin forms are appropriate for Latin contexts only, i.e., written contexts and any circumstances where Latin was the spoken language. These forms, especially for the given names, do not in general reflect the standard spoken Gascon form. If you are interested in determining a possible vernacular form of any of these documentary spellings, please contact the Academy of S. Gabriel.
