Why is the domain name “Geopaethas” ?

We have to admit that this is a made-up word, but it has Anglo-Saxon roots.

“Paethas” means “paths”.  The “ae” is the Old English letter Ash, which is pronounced like the “a” in “hat”.  So you can see that when our Anglo-Saxon ancestors talked about paths, they used a word that sounded very similar to ours.  The language hasn’t changed very much.

“Geo” is a suffix that is applied to a number of words.  For example, “Geomann” means “a man or person in the past”, and “Geolean” means “a reward for a past deed”.

So if the residents of Anglo-Saxon Lyminge had ever needed to talk about pathways to the past, they might just have talked about geopaethas.
