The Hs of Medieval Tuscan and Italian names

Sorry, I could only find two names for today, and was unable to locate any male names in either category. It’s a very uncommon letter in modern Italian names too.

Female names:

Honesta (I) comes from a Latin word meaning “reputable, honourable, respected, distinguished.”

Humiliana (I) comes from the Latin word humilis (humble).
