Attested: RC Ardaoneon
Name Origin: Ardaoneon looks very Greek, presumably starting with αρδω ‘to water’ and possibly ending with ονειον ‘ass stable’ or ονειος ‘useful’.
Notes: RC lists Ardaoneon in a sequence running from Winchester to Chichester. Havant was Hamanfunta in AD 935, where funta descended from Latin fontanus ‘pertaining to a spring’, probably referring to the Hamwelle, one of many fine springs in Havant and probably a holy well.
that it is liable to human error, and try to offer suggestions for improvement.
