What a coincidence.  Someone just showed me a book this weekend on Mongols.
"The Secret History of the Mongols", trans. by Francis Woodman Cleaves.  The
original text was written in Mongolian around 1240 AD, but does not survive.
It was translated phonetically into Chinese in the following century, and
from this the English translation made.  Hardcover copy is just over $20.

A site I just hit on that talks more about Mongol names is

and that is linked to by Modar's SCA site at
(he's the Baron of Forgotten Sea, and a herald too...)
