Everyone knows anonymous, but did you know there is onymous? I was reading a book on the troubadours and specifically on the first troubadour whose songs we have records of. The author referred to the onymous records of this guy whose name we know, (Guilhèm de Peitieus; French: Guillaume de Poitiers), as opposed to anonymous troubadours i.e. whose names we do not know.
