last updated 18Feb09

The following names are taken from a list of returns from Kulmbach for the Gemeine Pfennig of 1495. So far as I can tell, this is part of the same taxation muster as the one which gave rise to the source I used for my "German Names from 1495". I have given two lists of given names; first the men's names, in order of frequency, and then the women's, also in order of frequency. I have grouped all spelling variants, diminutives, and pet forms of a name together. On separated pages is a list of surnames and information about women's surnames.
