This collection of essays presents a picture of the concerns and state of onomastics in America in the closing decades of the 20th century. Onomastics is the serious study of names and naming. Names are used in all cultures to designate particular persons, places, events, and ideas. This study helps show both universal aspects of human culture and differences between cultures over time and space.

"... [this book] presents a challenge to readers, scholars, and researchers in a variety of fields to recognize the importance of names in their disciplines and to further elaborate what has become a truism, that onomastics can broaden and deepen our understanding of the human condition." - Professor Cleveland Kent Evans, Bellevue University Edwin D. Lawson, Professor Emeritus, State University of New York at Fredonia"
