Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.
Sometimes, you come across a name where you wonder if it is simply just a typo — either by the editor or by the original scribe. But sometimes the name is so far from anything you’ve seen that you can’t even imagine what it might be a typo for. In that spirit, we present today’s Mystery Name.
