Cornish Names
An attempt to explain over 1600 Cornish Names
Author: T. F. G. Dexter
Copyright: 2001

Description: 83 pages 

The title of this book is a little deceiving, for it is far more than a mere glossary of Cornish surnames, although it covers these admirably. More than 1600 Cornish surnames and place-names are covered, but Dexter gives us a thorough knowledge of the Cornish language, the meanings of individual words, the way they are put together to form a meaningful phrase, the gender and mutations are also covered in detail.
