The Es of Medieval Tuscan and Italian names

Female names:

Elemosina (I)

Emerentiana (I) is the feminine form of the Latin name Emerentianus, which in turn derives from Emerentius and the Latin word emereo (to fully deserve).

Engelrada (I) derives from an Ancient Germanic name with the roots Angil (the Angle tribe) and rad (counsel).

Ermellina (I) may be a form of Ermelinda, derived from Ancient Germanic roots ermen (universal, whole) and lind (tender, soft, flexible), or inspired by the Italian word ermellino (ermine), a Medieval symbol of generosity, innocence, purity, and kindheartedness.

Male names:

Enotrio (I) derives from the name of the ancient Enotria region in Southern Italy. Its original Greek name was Oinotria, and the Latinised form was Oenotria, possibly meaning “wine land” or “land of vineyards.”
