German Names

Disclaimer: This list was intended for background flavor for our roleplaying game only. The names were taken from sources listing names of the area from the Medieval period, and (obviously) show names of non-native origin as well as "authentic" ones. Please do not email me to complain about something like "this name isn't German, it's Hungarian."
