Sometimes, deciphering a name in an old handwritten document is not as easy as one might suppose. This could be due to the widespread use of abbreviations or to the difficulty in reading the handwriting. Use these tables to assist you in interpreting the names mentioned in the documents. You can find more names at Behind the Name.

Most feminine Latin names take first declension forms. An example is the name Maria. Other first declension forms it may take, based on how it is used in a sentence, are Mariae and MariamSome feminine names take third declension forms, like the name Agnes. Other third declension forms are Agnetis, Agneti, Agnetem, and Agnete. These tables provide the nominative form of common Latin names and their genitive ending. (See Nouns for more about declensions.) If a name is in the third declension, it is indicated.
