The Canadian Society for the Study of Names (CSSN) / Société canadienne d’onomastique (SCO) will hold its annual meeting as part of the 52nd Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, May 26 – 27, at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada. The congress theme is “Gathering Diversities”.


The study of names reveals examples of linguistic and social inventiveness in action, on historical, geographical, political or market concerns. Furthermore, the symbolic order to which names belong and their power to affect people make them fascinating, complex, and inexhaustible objects of study. The congress once again offers the opportunity to invite you cordially to join us on the quest for onomastic solutions for the future.
