This manages to be mind-numbingly boring and utterly fascinating all at once. Really useful for novelists trying to work out a decent geography for English historical fiction. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0713473789, Paperback)

This revised and updated edition of the 1961 classic explains the technique of place-name study; examines the types of place-name formation, both ancient and modern; and includes a new chapter on modern place-names. It covers names of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian and French origin, those with Christian and pagan significance, those illustrating social and legal customs; and more.
