The forms listed 'feminine' were used by women only. Occasionally a vowel is superscripted over another vowel. I have used square brackets to indicate this. For example, Lo[e]sin indicates that the e is superscripted over the o.
Because of their length, I have split the surnames into two lists: A - M and N - Z.
I am also in the process of sorting the bynames by type. Work in progress lists can be found here: occupational, patronymic, locative, descriptive, and unidentified/uncategorized.
