Welcome to my "home" on the web. I am known in the SCA as Basil Dragonstrike. I have been gathering information about Arabic onomastics (that's the study of names) for quite a while. I have decided to put up some web-pages, in the hopes of helping anyone, in the SCA or not, create a reasonably authentic Arabic name from before the 17th CE century.

used to have pages at the Saint Gabriel website, but those are all now out-of-date

Here are my collected Names from period documents.

Here are some articles on Arabic and name-related matters

I will soon have some things that don't fit into either category.
