Georgian Names Module Added to Regency Encyclopedia


Sue, proprietress of the Regency Encyclopedia, wrote to tell us that a Georgian Names Module has been added to the website.

I’d like to announce a new part of the Regency Encyclopedia, the Georgian Names module. The purpose of this module is to provide a resource of Christian names used in the late Georgian Era.

The data in this module has been contributed by our new collaborator, Heather F (quill) and I am extremely grateful for not only the many hours she put into researching this topic but also contributing most of the pictures accompanying it.

This module is very straightforward to use. You may search for a name or nickname by typing it in the search box or using our links to find a name in the database. For every name, we provide information about the name’s history, spellings, nicknames, a popularity meter, a list of both Austen and non-Austen literary characters and a portrait gallery of famous people in the late Georgian Era with this Christian name.
