Onomastic Highlights of 2018

Having access to the statistics of e-Onomastics, ICOS on Facebook and ICOS on Twitter, I decided to sum up the most interesting onomastic highlights of the outgoing year. Fisrt, I've counted together all visits on my blog e-Onomastics, all reactions on Facebook and all engagements on Twitter. Thereto, I've added comments and likes. Then, I divided all post into categories and made an overall rating.
