In the preface to Beowulf (between the introduction and the beginning of the poem), there is a page entitled A Note on Names. Read this page carefully. Then, loosely using the rules of Anglo-Saxon compound names, create your own compound name that accurately describes you. For example, I could be Knowledge-bestower, Grade-inflicter, or Language-informer. Or, if I really wanted to get creative, I could make my name even sound Old English.
The student with the most authentic and creative Anglo-Saxon name gets a blog pass!
Post your name on this blog with a brief (1-3 sentence) explanation of why this name describes you.
YOU MAY NOT USE A BLOG PASS ON THIS BLOG.
