This chapter aims to address several questions concerning the identification of Irishmen in England in the period before the arrival of the Vikings. It focuses on the onosmatic aspects of the questions and investigates the inter-related questions about the distinctiveness of Old Irish personal names. The chapter attempts to develop a method for tracking down Irishmen who do not have obviously Irish names.

Keywords:   Irishmen, England, Vikings, onosmatic, Old Irish names, Irish personal names
