Nabarus II.A.1. Pt, place name, not proveably Celtic Namet It may be impossible to sort out the scribal errors in the following elements, see "Vipoig namet" for the full forms Ignaviet II.B.3. possible byname Namet II.B.3. possible byname Nectan Another of the top 10 most popular names; this is found in a large variety of sources. It is cognate with Old Welsh "Neithon" and Irish "Nechtan". Some of the variation in spelling may be due to shifts in pronunciation. Jackson proposes the chronology: Nechton > Nehton > *Neiton (Naiton in Bede). Naiton II.E. Pict mentioned in the Ulster Annals (?8th c.) Nechtan II.B.4. IrHB, historic kings Nectan II.B.3.

Pictish place-name for "Kinneil" mentioned in Bede (8th c.), has Celtic roots Picti I.A. tribal name, first mentioned in 3rd c. Latin poem *Pritani Jackson gives *Pritani or *Priteni as the tribal name at the root of these forms Cruidne II.B.1. ColMS, eponymous founder of Picts, almost certainly apocryphal Cruithne II.B.1. IrHB, eponymous founder of Picts Pretanic II.A.2. place name applied to British Isles in 1st c. BC, this is an Anglicized form found in modern sources, Latin would probably have been "Pretanicus" Ru This is one of the few names from the Brude- list also found elsewhere. Ru II.B.2. ColMS & IrHB, king in Brude-list; II.B.3. ColMS & IrHB, post-Brude list Eru II.B.2. ColMS, king in Brude-list, probably ghost of "Ru" Ero II.B.2.

Pt, tribal name, not proveably Celtic, Latin version Taixali II.A.1. Greek version of above Taezalorum Prom. II.A.1. Pt, place name Talorc/an One of the top 10 most popular names of the historic period ("Talorc" and "Talorcan" would each make the list separately; together they are beaten only by "Drust/an".) Jackson suggests a Celtic origin. The regular appearance of "Talore" in the Pictish Chronicle is puzzling. It could be explained by a scribal mis-reading, but given the long popularity of the name, the error must have been made very late in the history of the text (or by a singularly unobservant scribe).
