Medieval time

The Visigoths / Ostrogoths have Slavic names: Valamir, Thiudimir and Vidimir. Did they actually were Germans? (Wolfram1988) 
So, Slavic names become popular in other (non-Slavic) countries.

If the rare TA haplotype found in ancient Britain instead suggests the presence of people of Romani ancestry in tenth century England, this is in surprising contradiction to historical evidence indicating that the Romani first left India—as mercenary soldiers or camp followers—at around AD 1000 (Hancock 2002).
