Another milestone hit: 1000 entries

When it looked like time would prevent our technical guru from completing things to his (exceedingly high) standards in time for our original target date, we decided to make use of the extra time to make the first edition as big and bold as we could. We recently reached 20,000 citations, and tonight we hit another major number.

If you went over to our list of entries, and counted all the entries, you’d find that we now have a round 1000 (one thousand) entries queued up for publication. 1000 entries with 20,000+ citations distributed over them, from A to Z from Portugal to Poland, from Ireland to Italy, from the 6th C to the 16th C, it is quite the onomastic feast that we will be serving you soon!

The 1,000th citation is for the name Sicleholde, a rather rare name of Old German origin with (so far) a single citation from early 9th C France.
