Conference on Literary, polar and extraterrestrial place names 2023


Conference on Literary, polar and extraterrestrial place names

Venue: Rome, Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei – November 23rd-24th 2023

The conference has been planned to set up in three distinct sessions.

The major themes to be develop are as follow:

(i) Place names in all ancient, medieval and modern literature

(ii) The names of polar lands enclosed those given by explorers

(iii) The names given to places of Moon and Mars in historical times and at present.

As for the place names of literature, the examples are very numerous. These are real or fictional place names, as in novel by Andrea Camilleri and by other significant authors of word literature.

As for the polar regions, there are many names related to expeditions and explorers of the Arctic and Antarctica, or place names inhabited by Aboriginal communities, such as the Inuit. As regards the Antarctica we can refer to the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (Scar). The Scar Open Science Conference 2022 will be held online from 1-10 August 2022 .

As for extraterrestrial celestial bodies, we can refer above all to the Moon but also to Mars, where the place names are numerous.

On the Moon we can refer, for example, to the works by Giovanni Domenico Cassini and by others who presented interesting Lunar maps. The Lunar Astronautical Charts at scale of 1:1.000.000, published by the Defense Mapping Agency in 1973 and available online from Lunar and Planetary Institute. We can also refer also to the interesting paper by Casimir Borkowski, entytled Syntax and Semantics of Lunese I, a Microlanguage for Labeling Topographical Features of the Lunar Surface in “Proceedings of the 10th International Congress of Onomastic Sciences”, Vienna, 1969).

There are many celestial atlases, such as that of John Flamseed (1776), which are also worth studying by us geographers.

We intend to involve the UNGEGN (United Nations on Geographical Names and Icos (International Council of Onomastic Science), due to affinity of some of the topics dealt with.

Russia renamed 86 streets in occupied Melitopol


Russian forces in occupied Melitopol have renamed 86 streets named after Ukrainian figures, Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov said on Feb. 4. 

He said the streets were instead renamed after Russian and Soviet figures. 

Russian forces also reportedly dismantled a monument dedicated to the famous Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko.

On Dec. 11, the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces reported that Russian forces in occupied Melitopol were forcing residents to get Russian passports to receive their payments.

Russian troops also forced locals to switch from Ukrainian currency to the Russian ruble. 

Russian forces are also reportedly trying to encourage local residents to collaborate by raising assistance to pensioners and increasing salaries for those who agree to work in Russian-established institutions, the military said.

1st Circular Letter - ICOS 2024

The 28th International Congress of Onomastic Sciences (ICOS) will be organized in Helsinki, Finland, on 19–23 August 2024. The theme of the congress is Sustainability of names, naming and onomastics.

You can find information about the congress, including theme description, keynote speakers, important dates, congress fees, and call for workshop proposals, in the first circular letter:

*Link to the Circular Letter*

Call for Papers: the 6th ICONN "(In)correctness in Onomastics"


The theme of the conference, (In)correctness in Onomastics, has a twofold meaning. On the one hand, it implies the reconsideration of certain onomastic theories as well as older etymologies and hypotheses, which with the passage of time have become outdated and in need of revisiting. On the other hand, (in)correctness in onomastics is conceptually linked to political correctness/incorrectness. This ideologically promoted topic is currently of great interest and contributes to the redefinition of social phenomena, names/words, historical events, and geographical names. The process is favoured by the present-day worldview which encompasses different perspectives foregrounded by the hermeneutic framework and recent sensitivities.

Noteworthy examples include the following:

  • in anthroponymy, there are “cursed” names whose use has become a taboo and is therefore illegal in various countries (e.g., HitlerBin Laden); the nicknames consisting of such names confirm the aforementioned reality;
  • starting from the dichotomy correct/incorrect, the field of toponymy has recorded the change of names of countries (the Netherlands, North Macedonia), various places (English place names were replaced with aboriginal names in Australia and New Zeeland among others), settlements (underpinned by sociopolitical, racial, religious, economic, or moral reasons), streets, institutions, companies, etc.;
  • in literature, there are writers who have been condemned (in the USA, some schools and members of the academic community have demanded that Shakespeare’s works be removed from the curriculum) and book titles which have become undesirable (in 2020, James Prichard, Agatha Christie’s great grandson, announced that the novel And Then There Were None would no longer be published in France as Dix petits nègres, the translation of the original title of the book, Ten Little Niggers, due to the racist connotations it may trigger – see, for instance, https://www.rtl.fr/culture/arts-spectacles/dix-petits-negres-le-best-seller-d-agatha-christie-debaptise-7800747182);
  • in ergonymy, while ethnic names for diseases/pandemics might have been common in the past (e.g., Spanish flu), they are unacceptable nowadays (e.g., Covid-19 instead of the potentially stigmatizing names China/Chinese fluChina/Chinese virusNew China virusChina coronavirus, and Wuhan virus/flu).


13 January 2023 – 31 March 2023: submission of registration form (see the “Registration” section of this website) (abstracts: maximum 15 lines/150 words);

1 April 2023: notification of acceptance;

1 May 2023:  closing date for early registration (RON 500 / EUR 100);

1 June 2023: second circular letter and programme draft;

1 August 2023: third circular letter and final programme;

5-7 September 2023: The Sixth International Conference on Onomastics “Name and Naming”: (In)correctness in Onomastics

5 October 2023: Full paper submission.

3rd Session of the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names


"Strengthening relationships, links and connections in geographical names standardization and for sustainable development and pandemic recovery"

The 2023/third session of the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names (UNGEGN) will be convened from 1 to 5 May 2023 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. There will be 10 meetings of the 2023 session and each meeting will be three hours: 10 -1 a.m. and 3-6 p.m.


UNGEGN sessions provide a forum where experts from the interrelated fields of geography, cartography, geospatial information, linguistics and history, from across the world come together to learn and share best practices and norms, new developments in geographical names administration and standardization. The session also highlights the Group's role as an enabler in preserving cultural heritage and where appropriate support relevant aspects of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This session will address the theme "Strengthening relationships, links and connections in geographical names standardization and for sustainable development and pandemic recovery". This theme is not only aligned to the theme of the 2023 ECOSOC High-level Political Forum on sustainable development, but also to UNGEGN's Strategic Plan and Programme of Work 2021-2029, Strategy 2: Relationships, links and connections. Good relationships, links and connections are fundamental to all UNGEGN's strategies and are at the heart of the work of the United Nations. Therefore, it is beneficial to encourage focus on this topic and create a platform through the 2023 session to explore the various types of relationships (formal/informal, organizational/individual) employed by Member States to achieve their goals, and in turn support UNGEGNs vision.

Work Programme

The Group of Experts has a robust work programme anchored in its Strategic Plan and Programme of Work 2021-2029. The following are some major topics to be addressed during the session: - place names supporting sustainable development, toponymic data management and gazetteers, romanization systems, diversity and inclusion, capacity building in toponymy and geographical names as cultural heritage.

Other Activities

A series of side events consisting of working groups and divisional meetings, special workshops and an orientation session for new attendees will be held prior to and during the session. We are committed to keeping you, our national representatives, observers and special interest groups informed on the progress of session arrangements. Therefore, we encourage you to continue to monitor this website for updates and announcements.

"Ономастика и топонимија - Заврши код Фоче"

Journalist, columnist and long-term member of the Association of Journalists of Serbia (UNS), Milenko Mišo Todović, published the book "Onomastics and Toponymy - Finish at Foča". This book is a unique linguistic treasure because it interprets the original language concepts.

As Milenko Todović says, the book is a struggle to preserve the original names, which were almost lost over time. 

Новинар, публициста и вишегодишњи члан Удружења новинара Србије (УНС) Миленко Мишо Тодовић објавио је књигу "Ономастика и топонимија - Заврши код Фоче". Ова књига представља јединствену језичку ризницу јер се у њој тумаче изворни језички појмови.

У лексичком смислу, како каже Миленко Тодовић, књига је борба да се сачувају изворни називи, који су се временом готово изгубили.

У књизи су обухваћени називи планина, брда, пећина и јама, водотокова, река, потока, језера и више лековитих извора, о којима се мало зна. Попис домаћих животиња, опис заборављених заната и навођење назива мера за тежину, дужину и време само су неке од свари које је аутор уврстио у ову збирку текстова.

Тодовић се у књизи бавио различитим појмовима у језичком, историјском и географско‒привредном погледу.

Поред тога, књига садржи више од 5500 имена људи, презимена, породичних и личних надимака. 

Издавачи су аутор и Народна библиотека „Шклопотницаˮ из Ријеке код Фоче. Тираж књиге је 100 примерака, а ИСБН је 978-26-901962-2-3.

Special issue of journal Genealogy on family names


Dear Colleagues,

We propose to jointly guest-edit a Special Issue of the online periodical Genealogy on the topic of Family Names and Naming. This is a call for papers. Updated deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2023 

Relatively little is published globally on this topic. We therefore consider that it would be timely to bring together contributions from as many as possible of the different disciplines which have an established or potential professional interest in personal naming at the family level: linguistics/onomastics, lexicography, history, genealogy, social psychology, anthropology, human biology, genetics, computer science and AI, marketing, etc.,  and from as many geographical, linguistic and cultural areas as possible. Much published work involving family names is genealogical (therefore highly specific) and lexicographical (therefore essentially summarizing a current state of historical knowledge).

Seeing just how little is published in comparison with work in toponymy, given-naming and business and institutional naming, for example, we consider that a useful step would be to bring together work of disparate types without a single overarching theme in order to expose scholars in the various fields to the full richness of current thinking about family names and possible directions for further research and cross-disciplinary collaboration. For the purposes of this issue, the Guest Editors will understand “family name” (or “surname”) to include names which perform an analogous role in a range of cultures, such as patronyms and metronyms, clan names, nasab and nisba, etc.—any name, in fact, which explicitly positions the individual within a larger social structure. Lack of family name is also a topic of interest. The Guest Editors will be pleased to consider submissions from any disciplinary area, whether oriented to history, praxis or theory, but will look especially favourably on papers that endeavour to make links across conventional disciplinary boundaries or seek to establish new methodological approaches to the study of family names. We expect submissions may fall into five broad areas:

  1. Projects and methods in family name research;
  2. Systematic aspects of family names and naming;
  3. Linguistic aspects of family names and naming;
  4. Praxis in relation to family naming;
  5. Studies relating to individual family names (in which the focus should be on the  name itself rather than on wider genealogical matters).

We offer a range of references below as an indication of some of the directions that might be followed by contributors, but without seeking to limit submissions to predefined topic areas.

We request that, prior to submitting a manuscript, interested authors initially submit a proposed title and an abstract of 400–600 words, in English, summarizing their intended contribution, within one month of this call for papers. Please send it to the Guest Editors (richard.coates@uwe.ac.uk and h.parkin@chester.ac.uk) or to Genealogy editorial office (genealogy@mdpi.com). Abstracts will be reviewed by the Guest Editors for the purposes of ensuring proper fit within the scope of the Special Issue. Full manuscripts will undergo double-blind peer-review.

For those for whom it is relevant, the policy of Genealogy on article fees is set out at: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/genealogy/apc.

We look forward to hearing from you. Please pass on this call to any scholar you think might wish to contribute.

Toponymic studies on Brazilian Sign Language

This talk aims to offer an overview of toponymic studies on Brazilian Sign Language, Libras, and to present a morphological analysis of Brazilian Sign Language signs that name 51 of the 75 Curitiba neighborhoods. Specifically, we will show the results of a study carried out by Xavier and Ferreira (2021) on the lexical creation processes through which some Libras toponyms were formed. The corpus for this research was constituted from data collected by Ferreira and Xavier (2019) and videos made available on CAS-Curitiba’s YouTube channel. From these sources, 75 toponymic forms and phonological variants for seven of them were collected. We analyzed those forms based on works on word-formation processes in spoken languages (Vellupilai, 2012) and in signed languages (Meir, 2012). As a result, we have identified 16 different patterns of lexical formation and four toponymic families, that is, four sets of signs that share the same articulation place, and, presumably, a semantic feature related to it. The analysis of these toponymic signs also reveals the occurrence of phonological, morphological and lexical variation. Finally, we will present a research project involving public universities from eight Brazilian states that aims to create a toponymic atlas for Libras.

Paul Fabre (1935 - 2023)


Originaire de Nizas, le linguiste distingué que fut Paul Fabre, à l'Université Paul-Valéry de Montpellier, vient de tirer sa révérence.

Un érudit affable, originaire de Nizas, vient de disparaître à l’âge de 87 ans. En effet, le professeur émérite des Universités Paul Fabre fait partie de ces Alésiens dont les travaux de recherches témoignent d’une activité intellectuelle soutenue. Grammairien et maître de la chaire de philologie romane à l’Université Paul-Valéry de Montpellier, il a formé de nombreux étudiants aux subtilités et évolutions de la langue française depuis le Moyen-Âge. Tout au long de sa vie, il publiera de nombreux ouvrages spécialisés sur la sémantique, la grammaire occitane ancienne, l’origine des noms de lieux et de personnes, ainsi que plusieurs romans à caractère régionaliste.

Third Season of "Chinese Place Names Conference" Show is Back


The Ministry of Civil Affairs and China Media Group have launched the third season of "China Place Names Conference" in an effort to promote China's superb place name culture. It will begin airing on CCTV-4 on December 17th at 17:30 on every Saturday and Sunday.

The program builds on the strengths of the previous two seasons by analyzing the Chinese wisdom concealed in place names, using knowledge of place names as the carrier to deeply explore the main theme of "seeing culture from place names and seeing China from culture," focusing on helping the audience understand the essence of Chinese culture, perceive the rich connotation of place name stories, and experience the real, three-dimensional world around them, exhibiting the self-assurance of Chinese culture virtually while showcasing the rich history of Chinese place names culture and socialist fundamental values.

The cultural variety performance "China Place Names Conference" is well-liked by the audience, inclusive of all people, and committed to sustainable growth. The third season included new ideas and enhanced the presentation, content, and competition structure of the show. In terms of the competition system, the combination of team battles and individual battles enables players to obtain individual victories through individual efforts in addition to team honors, giving each player a greater sense of contribution and value. 

In terms of content, this season will concentrate on the understanding of place names that the audience is familiar with but not fully adept at, in order to pique their interest and encourage participation, enhance the output quality of place name knowledge, and fully illustrate the positive pattern of "emphasizing science and emphasizing practicality" in the current development of place name culture in China. Regarding presentation techniques, it is conveyed through a short film set in a very aesthetically striking setting that also extracts information on place names' cultural, geographic, and historical contexts, showcasing the grandeur and beauty of China.

To create a stunning visual impression and a novel approach to question framing, the program also employs a variety of techniques such as XR technology, fascinating animations, interactive objects, and special product tasting.

Use the place name as a guide to help you find your route; mark the location and keep an eye on the future. The third season of "China Place Names Conference" explores the historical changes, enduring cultural influences, and contemporary design motifs that have influenced Chinese place names in various ways. It also acknowledges the listeners' journeys that place names take them on as they visit far-off cultural locales.

« Artus de Bretagne : onomastique et littérature »

par Christine Ferlampin-Acher,
membre honoraire de l’IUF et professeur de langue et littérature françaises du Moyen Âge

(Université de Rennes 2, CELLAM)

À partir d’un roman arthurien tardif, Artus de Bretagne, composé vers 1300, seront envisagées quelques-unes des problématiques que posent l’édition de textes romanesques médiévaux et leur étude littéraire : instabilité des traditions manuscrites, intertextualité complexe, réseau de senefiance, datation et attribution de textes anonymes non datés, questions de réception (des manuscrits à la Collection de romans de chevalerie d’Alfred Delvau). La conférence proposera un bilan autour de quelques exemples ayant déjà donné lieu à publication.


Spécialiste du roman arthurien tardif, Christine Ferlampin-Acher a mené des recherches sur Perceforest et sur Artus de Bretagne et dirigé le projet LATE, « Littérature Arthurienne Tardive en Europe » (1270-1530). Elle a co-organisé à Rennes un séminaire sur l’onomastique littéraire médiévale : Par le non conuist an l’ome. Études d’onomastique littéraire médiévale, éd. C. Ferlampin-Acher, F. Pomel et E. Egedi-Kovàcs (dir.), Budapest, 2021 et en ligne : http://byzantium.eotvos.elte.hu/wp-content/uploads/Onomastique.pdf
