'''A Short (and rough) Guide to Byzantine Names for [[SCA]] [[persona]]e'''
  +
 
This is a listing of names that may be useful for constructing [[Byzantine]] persona. Please note that this is compiled by a non-historian and non-linguist. When errors are detected, please let me know so that I can correct them. Additional material is always welcomed. It is a work in progress and will be added to as I have time to research more books. Some names of barbarians who became citizens are included. Names from client states such as Serbia and Bosnia, as well as adversaries, can be found in [[Mongol Names]].

=== Family Names ===

==Family Name==
 
The family name ends in us, as, os or es if the person is male and a or ina if female. Thus Alexius Comnenus daughter is Anna Comnena. Sometimes a series of surnames would be put together to show geneology by birth or marriage (eg Theodora Branaina Komnene Laskarina Cantacuzene Palaiologos, BL 4). This was more common in later periods and much more common with females than males. Originally surnames were often taken from an adjective or common word, but could be from a Latin or other barbarian name. When talking of the whole family, in the plural, an oi is used, thus Akrtoi or Comnenoi.<br>
