Abstract [en]

In htis article, women's names from the first half of the seventeenth century are presented and discussed on the basis of entries in parish registers from before 1660. The first part is mainly a quantitative study from the stock of baptismal names in Öster- and Västergötland. Regional differences and diachronic changes are observed, and the most frequent names are identified. The second part deals with name phrases in registers of death. An important question here is how and why women are identified by their own name, by a byname, or by reference to other individuals, usually men. The relationship between named and unnamed women is also discussed.
