n. (plural of placename English)

Usage examples of "placenames".

All of the cottages seemed to have placenames out of the Arthurian mythos—there was a Tintagel, a Camelot (of course), a Badon, a Lyonesse, a Winchester, a Camlann .

Inevitably the cities had blended over the centuries, until placenames were only relics of the past.

Yet it was sufficiently permanent to lend placenames to many localities in England, while to Russia they gave the very name of the nation itself, from the Norse tribe Rus.
