Multicultural Patronymic Landscapes of Naming in Russia, France, Germany, Great Britain and Romania

 Springer + ResearchGate

A couple of days ago, I got the book "Names and Naming / Multicultural Aspects" where the 9th Chapter has been written by your obedient servant ! Any comments are more than welcome! 

This chapter represents a contrastive study of the common Russian, French, German, British and Romanian patronyme-based surnames. The aim of the study is to elaborate and evaluate name-based materials for five countries in the form of statistical data, then to analyse and confront motive-related surname clusters and their percentages in order to determine naming patterns and name-giving properties. From this perspective, Romania is of greatest interest as this country is situated at the crossroads between East and West. The typological analysis of Romanian surnames may help resolve numerous questions.
