In the course of the last few centuries BC, the languages of ancient Italy came into contact with, and were eventually replaced by, Latin. This talk will examine the evidence for the system(s) of women’s names in some of the languages that came into contact with Latin, and make some observations on how the switch to Latin affected women’s names.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Endangered Languages and Cultures Group series.
