British Place Names

I was just clearing out my dead links and I came across and article called List of generic forms in British place names. I probably archived the link to prove some argument or another at a later date, but as it is it's still fascinating on its own. Especially if you want to separate your Latin, Old English, Viking, Cornish, Welsh, Scots Gaelic and Pictish placenames.

Also worth checking out, if etymology is your thing, is the list of country name etymologies.
