Lenda

AttestedLenda, among RC's tour of harbour estuaries

Where:  River Great Ouse, which now flows into the Wash beside Kings Lynn.  Its modern mouth is artificial, but its Roman-era mouth might have been around TF6120.

Name Origin:  There seems to be no consensus whether *lendh- ‘wetness’ is to be recognised as a distinct PIE root, but PIE *lei- ‘to flow, to pour’, plus a verbal-participle ending –nta (or similar forms), would fit Lenda.
