Monograph

I nomi degli Ostrogoti

  • Nicoletta Francovich Onesti,

The book brings together for the first time the entire corpus of Ostrogoth anthroponyms, derived from the indexing of the late antique Greek, Latin and Gothic sources, both manuscript and epigraphical, even those that have only recently been found or published.
Unlike other preceding treatises, the names collected here do not relate solely to the period of the Ostrogoth kingdom in Italy, but also to the previous centuries, that is from when the Ostrogoth social structure made its first historical appearance. It also includes the names of Gothic tradition that persisted in Italy after 553, in certain areas surviving up to the early years of the seventh century.
This makes it possible to grasp the evolution of Ostrogoth onomastics over time: the influence of Latin names, the cases of dual Latin-Gothic names, of mixed marriages and of fashions in the families' choices of names that followed the shifting religious and political aspects of the epoch.
The final chapters are then devoted to linguistic analyses that delineate the characteristics of the anthroponymy of the Ostrogoths, its phonetic peculiarities, the interference of Latin and the morphological adaptations in the late antique sources, both Latin and Greek.
