Solution Saturday: Kermunt

Every Saturday, we will revisit one of our Mystery Monday names that we have solved. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed their knowledge and expertise, whether commenting here or on twitter or via email. You’ve all helped solve a mystery!

Our very first Solution Saturday name is Kermunt. Our hypothesis that the prototheme was a variant of Ger- was borne out by the commentators, which makes this name a variant of Germund. We’ve folded the citation in the entry for Kermunt into the entry for Germund.
