  Old Norse Names
According to the pagan view the name was a part of the personality, or rather the name in some mysterious way represented the spiritual and intellectual element of the individual for whom it stood.
In the first case, it may be that we are just missing women's names containing elements that are well-documented in men's names, since we have many fewer women's names surviving from this period than men's names.
Even in cases where name meanings were clearly understood in a contemporary sense, the meaning of the name was not important in choosing a name for a child.

The list of "Hundred Names" was compiled many years ago by order of the Emperor as the 100 most popular surnames (or last, or family names) in China at the time.

 Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names - Grammar
In modern Russian, names consist of a GIVEN NAME (imia), a PATRONYMIC (otchestvo), and a SURNAME (familiia), but as Tumanova notes quite well: "Russian naming conventions for early period are first name (baptismal name, usually that of a Biblical saint), followed by the everyday or common first name, patronymic, and rarely a surname.
Russian naming conventions for mid to late period are first name, patronymic, and surname" (1989: 4).
Names ending in -a or -ia are changed to -y and -i respectively and those names ending in -ii or -oi change to -ego or -ogo.

 TIP #217 Version 1.12: Getting Sorted Indices out of Lsort   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
When corresponding parallel lists must be simultaneously sorted or accessed in the order given by sorting them all according to one used as a list of keys, it is necessary to obtain the indices of the key list's elements in the order that they would be sorted, without actually sorting the list.
For example, a list of first names and a corresponding list of last names can be displayed in side-by-side Tk listboxes, in which case we may want to sort both lists by either one used as the sorting key, or we may want to simultaneously iterate over both in either order.
When lsort is invoked with this option, it shall return a list of integer indices of the elements of the list given as the final argument to lsort, in the order that the elements would have been sorted had the -indices option not been specified.

One limitation of the method of scanning a ;;; list, however, is that parents sometimes don't pay enough attention to ;;; how their chosen names will sound in combination with each other and ;;; with the surname.
For instance, let's suppose that the Doyles' ;;; list of possible first names included Emily, Lindsey, Carrie, and ;;; Sarah, and the possible middle names are Anne, Lynn, and Lucy.
For a given ;;; first name and a given last name, we can fill in each possible middle ;;; name and return a list of the resulting three-component name-strings.
