Mystery Monday: Riskipoe

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.

Today’s name is a 9th C masculine name from the Redon Cartularies. Because it doesn’t resemble any other name that we’re familiar with, we’re going to assume that this means it’s Breton in origin. 🙂


Anyone want to offer another suggestion? If you’ve got any thoughts, please share them in the comments!
