Through all the sources consulted in the making of this encyclopedia, there does not seem to be a standard spelling for the names of people, places and events in Celtic myth and history, which, considering time and localities where this information was written down, is not only a perfectly natural function but an inevitability. In this work, however, the editor has tried to list several alternative spellings to frequently used names and terms. Below you will find a collection of some of these names. We must emphasize that the alternate spelling form is by no means less correct than the chosen spelling. Alternate spellings are presented here to clarify some of the confusion caused by varient spellings of people, place, and event names.
