    Namnval som social handling: Val av förnamn och samtal om förnamn bland föräldrar i Göteborg 2007–20092011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this doctoral thesis is to examine how parents in Sweden at the beginning of the twenty-first century use the process of naming as a resource to contribute to the creation of various identities for both themselves and their child. It is based on a two-component study — a postal survey and qualitative group interviews, both conducted in the city of Göteborg, Sweden — and includes parents with children born during 2007 and 2008. By combining different sources (names, surveys and interviews) and different methods (quantitative and qualitative), this study attempts to elucidate how first names and choices of first names can be given various social meanings. In contrast to previous socio-onomastic studies, this study considers not only whether naming contains any social variation, but also how and why such variation arises. The theoretical framework is a combination of onomastic, sociolinguistic, identity-theoretical and interactional theories. The results demonstrate that parents’ choice of first names for their children is an important social act. Through name choices and discussions of these choices, parents create what is known as social positioning, which in turn contributes to the creation of certain identities both for themselves and their child. A number of resources are identified which are used by parents to create different social positionings. This study also demonstrates how both macro-societal structures and interactional aspects influence this social positioning. Finally, this study argues that the observed social variation is best explained by the parents’ desire to identify with and contribute to the creation of different models for society, in which varying social values and attributes are important.

    "Att blotta vem jag är": Släktnamnsskick och släktnamnsbyten hos samer i Sverige 1920–20092010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to describe surname patterns and changes of surname among the Sami of Sweden. It presents the results of three studies. The first is a survey of the present-day stock of surnames (family names) among the Sami community, based on the 2005 electoral register for the Swedish Sami Parliament. It investigates the proportions of names deriving from different languages, and the commonest names in each group. The same study was carried out for different areas, showing that the northernmost parts of Sweden have a Sami name stock significantly different from that of the majority population. Further south, the stock of names is less marked, but no area is without Sami elements.

    The second study, based on archival material, concerns changes of name by Swedish Sami to newly formed surnames, over the period 1920–2004. It examines not only the names adopted, but also the ones replaced; how the name stock has been affected by different patterns of name change; and, as far as possible, who the name changers were. The study shows that, for a long time, names derived from Sami and Finnish were replaced with names formed from Swedish. This may be largely because of the stigma once attached to Sami ethnicity. More recently, Sami-language names seem to have been retained to a greater extent, possibly owing to the improved status of the culture.

    The third study looks at name changes in favour of names marked as Sami in character. The data consist in part of archive materials, but above all of interviews with three Sami informants who have themselves adopted Sami-language surnames. This study presents the informants’ thoughts on ethnicity and changes of name.

    In addition to the author’s own studies, the thesis includes a review of earlier research on Sami surnames, hereditary and non-hereditary, and a list of individual surnames with literature references regarding their origins and meanings. In the thesis, name changes are studied as a single, overall process, with an emphasis on the role of names in society, in particular as ethnic markers.

    Moderna vardagliga binamn i Sverige2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to examine the modern everyday use of nicknames. The study is based on two different types of material – questionnaires and interviews. In contrast to previous nicknames-studies in Sweden, this study considers, not only different sorts of nicknames, even though this has been taken into consideration, but the function of the nicknames in everyday communication. The observations are based on the name-bearer’s own estimation of his or her nickname(s). The theoretical framework is a combination of onomastics, sociolinguistic, identity-theoretical, and interactional theories. The results demonstrate that the use of nicknames is an important social act that can be either positive or negative for the nickname-users. Six naming environments have been identified for the nicknames’ occurrence: childhood family, childhood friends, sports context, adulthood friends, partner and other. It appears that nicknames are co-creators of a gender and a youth identity. Three different functions for nicknames have been identified: affective function, relation function and positioning function. Finally, this study argues that there are two dimensions, public–private and exclusive–inclusive, that are useful in describing the use of nicknames.

    I gatuplanet. Namnbrukarperspektiv på gatunamn i Stockholm2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to apply a name user perspective to the street names of Stockholm, with a focus on knowledge and views about names among the city’s inhabitants. On the basis of interview surveys, a picture is presented of the knowledge and views of Stockholmers regarding their city’s street names and the semantic or thematic name categories to which many of them belong; that is, the study seeks to identify general features of the ways in which the people of the city relate to their street names. Surveys were carried out in seven districts: Hedvig Eleonora parish, Hjorthagen, Fredhäll, Norra Ängby, Årsta, Fruängen and Akalla. A separate survey studied the range and associative properties of street names among Stockholmers not living in the vicinity of the streets in question.

    General findings emerging from the surveys are that people are very familiar with the names in their local area; that knowledge about these names contributes to their well-being and sense of identity and belonging; that name categories are appreciated and considered to have an orientating function; that names which are seen as elegant or distinguished are regarded as enhancing the image and perceptions of the environment in which they occur; that long names and those made up of several words may be regarded as unwieldy in practical use; and that people need and create names for more limited park and recreational areas, while formally adopted names for larger green spaces are not used or are felt to be unclear in their reference.

    Ortnamnsanpassning som process: En undersökning av vendiska ortnamn och ortnamnsvarianter i Knýtlinga saga2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is to theoretically and empirically describe and explain the phenomenon of place-name adaptation which does not necessarily end with the borrowing or replication of place-names but can continue further. 48 Wendish place-names in Knýtlinga saga, including their attestations and variants in a selection of the saga’s text carriers and corresponding text witnesses, constitute the primary material for the investigation. The thesis seeks to combine place-name research, contact linguistics and philology with the theory of name adaptation in contact onomastics as its overall framework.

    The most important contribution of the thesis is the proposed demarcation between place-name replication and adaptation. In discussing the factors that can influence adaptation and its results, the focus is on the decisive role of the language user in contact-induced change. It is argued that the choice of adaptation strategy is primarily dependent upon the needs, competence and attitudes of the name user. The resulting form of adaptation is in most cases governed by the linguistic system of the target language, which is reflected in the model employed in the thesis to describe the results of the adaptation process.

    Two studies, one etymological and one philological, have been undertaken. Phonological, morphological, lexical, onomastic and semantic adaptations with and without epexegetic additions can be discerned in the toponymic material, which comprises 29 names of Slavic origin. Phonological adaptation dominates, which confirms the observations on place-name adaptation in previous research. Further adaptation of the replicated names in the post-medieval copies of Knýtlinga saga is admittedly insignificant; nevertheless scribes here make greatest use of lexical and onomastic adaptation in copying. The lack of transparency, which has been pointed out as the trigger for these types of adaptation, seems to create only the possibility of adaptation, but it is the name user who determines whether adaptation will occur and which strategy should then be employed.

    Ägonamn: Namnstruktur och namnkontinuitet i två uppländska socknar2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to present the general features of field names from the early 17th century to 2012, and to investigate the continuity of such names and attempt to understand what factors are of importance when it comes to their continuity and disappearance. A general survey is conducted in two parishes, Almunge and Väddö, in Uppland, Sweden, with more detailed investigations covering the hamlets of Söderby and Ösby, in Almunge, and Södra Fjäll and Norrbyle, in Väddö. The theoretical framework of the thesis is based in dialogical theory and the theory of an onomasticon.

    A total of 5,736 field names are examined and categorized in an onomastic analysis covering a number of angles: name elements, the semantics of generics and specifics, and name continuity. Field names exhibiting continuity, drawn from the four hamlets studied more closely, are also analysed in terms of non-onomastic factors: type of land, joint ownership, and location on the hamlet boundary. The study shows that a majority of field names are formed in the same way: with a specific denoting a natural or cultural feature and a generic indicating a type of farmland. Some variations over time may be noted: specifics describing location seem to be more common in the earlier periods, while those denoting settlements appear more often in later names. In general, it is not possible to speak of a strong continuity of field names. The names that do show continuity usually belong to the most general field-name types, although there is a tendency for names consisting of only one element or including a generic that does not denote land to have a better chance of surviving. The results of my study seem to indicate that both onomastic and non-onomastic factors are of importance when it comes to the survival of field names.

    Arboga stads tänkebok (ATb) ist das mittelalterliche Gedenkbuch der Stadt Arboga in Västmanland. Es enthält die Protokolle des Stadtgerichtes und andere Akten. Dieses Gedenkbuch gehört zu den wichtigsten altschwedischen Quellen der Personennamenforschung.  Agneta Sundström untersucht   Personenbeinamen, die zwischen 1450 und 1500 in ATb auftreten. Sie analysiert das Material morphologisch und semantisch. Sekundäre Namenbildungen kommen häufiger vor als primäre. Sowohl eingliedrige Bildungen als auch Komposita sind zahlreich. Die Beinamen  werden in verschiedene semantische Gruppen eingeordnet: Namen die sich auf die Berufstätigkeit und die soziale Stellung beziehen, Namen die das Aussehen eines Menschen beschreiben, Namen die den Charakter des Namenträgers ausdrücken usw. Als Attribute verwendete Berufsbezeichnungen sind in ATb sehr zahlreich.

    Abstract [en]

    Pig but not Swine?

    The man’s name, Old West Norse Sveinn is the most popular of all personal names in runic inscriptions from the Viking age. But out of 113 seemingly certain records, no less than 52 are written suin and similarly, with only a non-dotted i-rune as representation of the /ei/ diphthong. This opens for the possibility that in these cases we are dealing with a completely different name, i.e. Svín (‘swine’), known as a byname in (late) Old Danish and Old Swedish. There are many porcine names in Old Norse, both as main names and as bynames: e.g. Galti (‘hog’), Gríss (‘young pig’), Gylta (‘young sow’), and Sýr (‘sow’). But none of these appear in runic inscriptions, and the putatively Norse byname Svín is shown to be a family name with German origin in medieval Danish and Swedish. Thus, a name *Svín was for some reason not used in the Viking Age. Since it was not part of the onomasticon there was no risk that Sveinn written suin would be confused with it. The 52 records in question, written with only an i-rune as representation of the wowel, are consequently to be interpreted as representations of Sveinn, as they have been before.

    Abstract [en]

    The runic inscription from Fælleseje: A Proto-Scandinavian advertisement or a personal name?

    The artifact (possibly a hide-scraper or (weaving) swingle) from Fælleseje, Slemminge parish, on the Danish island of Lolland bears the runic inscription. This sequence has been transliterated (inter alia) and associated with Old Norse vitring f. ‘announcement’. In this article it is demonstrated that the last rune should be seen as an allograph not of the ing-rune but of the oðal-rune. Following a suggestion by Erik Motke (1985 p. 94) is interpreted as Witro, a personal name identical to the Old Icelandic by-name vitra or vitri ‘the wise one’. It is uncertain whether it refers to a woman’s name or a man’s.
