These essays are the work of 30 years of research in English Renaissance onomastics. They deal with subjects as varied as dance-names, namelessness and place-names in drama, nominal jests, the varied meanings of a place named Wilderness, names in graffiti, self-defining in subscriptions to familiar letters, and women's names in elegies. Two essays are on political aspects: one concerning the name of the Earl of Essex, and another on naming in a poem by Sir Walter Raleigh to his queen. One essay concerns humanism and onomastics, another the organic function of onomastics in Shakespeare's drama.
