Tacitus recorded his observations on German life and customs in one of his histories titled, " Germania " which is frequently quoted in numerous reference books. The German men hunted, fished and made war, and although the women tended the fields and cared for family needs, the German men had an extremely high respect for their womenfolk.

This respect was mutual and the women often accompanied their men to the battle site and performed as "cheerleaders" from the sidelines.

Early German women also had military names; not that they participated in the actual fighting, but so they could pass along military virtues to their sons. Tribal battles were generally fought for three reasons: feuds, booty and for the acquisition and settlement of new lands. North and central Germany had no natural barriers to protect the east and west boundaries, such as that provided by the Alps in the south.

Thus, armies could easily flow from east to west and west to east and, flow they did! From the west came the Celts, Romans, Gauls, and Franks. From the east came the Huns, Vandals, Goths Visigoths and Ostrogoths , Langobards, and Burgundians, to name a few of the more familiar invaders.

With all the military action through the centuries, it is easily concluded that the earliest German names would be predominantly military ones, and studies such as Dr. Jones recorded in his book, "German American Names", proved this to be the case.

Military names consisted of roots designating anything military such as weapons, military virtues, predatory birds and animals, victory, rule, fortresses, treasure, etc.

Very little is known of German warriors earlier than BC except for that related in epics, eddas and sagas; however, some information was preserved by Roman historians along with observations and comments by Julius Caesar, prior to Tacitus's writing of his "Germania" history.

It is known that Julius Caesar - 44 BC recruited German cavalrymen from the German tribes, as they were expert horsemen.

Such horsemen were named, "Reiters" or "Reuters" in the Middle Ages, knights were named "Ritters", a name reserved for the gentry. During the Bronze Age, German smiths were excellent artisans and crafted magnificent, beautiful swords and battle axes.

Since bronze had to be imported, few such swords or battle axes were carried as a result of their costliness; thus, spearmen outnumbered swordsmen. This is also seen from the list of "Towpath" names below where "spear" names outnumber the "sword" names The expertise of the German smiths did not carry over from the Bronze Age, BC into the early years of the Iron Age, BCAD , so their iron swords were not very strong or dependable, breaking rather easily.

It was not until the centuries following Tacitus AD that swords became commonplace in the hands of German warriors.


When reviewing the following names, please keep in mind that the interpretation of such names is "generic"; one must know the circumstances under which the name was "coined" to know its meaning accurately. Was the sword of the original Luedeke wielded with such vigor that it "sang" when whirled or was its clamor loud upon contacting shield or armor?

Was the sword wielded in an illustrious manner or was its beauty illustrious to behold? Was his army loud in battle, or in victory, or illustriously led? Such answers are necessary for an accurate interpretation; in lieu of such source specifics, namesakes are free, of course, to choose whatever interpretation they find most appealing.I ended up taking the cover off of the book because I found it to distracting Love this book as a reference!!!
