Clearly Lanem is wrong: I guess it was taken from the entry Limburgis ad Lanem by someone who doesn't understand Latin. Unfortunately, no authority is cited even for Limburgis ad Lanem. Well, I can find one Latin name for this river, Laugana[1], but before moving the entry I would like to confirm it somewhere else. Can anyone help?

For the present, since Lanem is clearly wrong, I will move the page to Laugana. If anyone has a better name, let's go to it! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:19, 11 Iulii 2007 (UTC)

Just for information: "Die Lahn (früher Loganus, Logana, Laugana Lanus, Lo-flus usw. genannt)" [p.p.]

For de:Limburg an der Lahn I have found the attested Latin name (used by the Vatican, apparently): Limburgum ad Lahnam. --Fabullus 10:36, 22 Maii 2009 (UTC)
