First Name Directory - Starting with O

This site is dedicated to maintaining a database of first names from all over the world. We are still working to add all meanings to the names and sort them by gender, ethic and other behavior.

Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.

Oswald is a masculine given name, from Anglo-Saxon Osweald, from os "god" and weald "rule". The Old High German cognate was Answald, the Old Norse form was Ásvaldr.
Oslac is the old English name variation of a common Germanic name, the old Norse. Asleikr, Latinized in a West Frankish source of Ansleicus (probably spelled * Ansleich) is called. Etymologically the first part of the name is laiks "dance" OS -, as - on the Göttergeschlecht of the Æsir, the second, however, related to the Germanic word * laikaz, the Gothic, old North. leikr "Game, string game, fighting game" and altengl. Lac means "Game, dance, offering" (perhaps "Melody, sound" see also OHG), so the name in the original Germanic meaning probably indicates a special relationship of the carrier to the cult of the Æsir.

In the data base are, apart from modern and traditional first names also American, Arab, Germans, English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Dutch, Northern, Russian, Scandinavian, Slavian, Spanish, and Swedish first names.
