Onomastic Highlights 2022

 Just like last four years (201920182020, 2021), 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 and ICOS Website, all reactions on ICOS Facebook and all engagements on ICOS Twitter. Thereto, I've added comments and likes. Then, I divided all post into categories and made an overall rating. Additionally, we have to count views on the new ICOS YouTube Channel what is directly related to the initiative "Onomastics Lectures Online"

Let's have a look how rich the year of 2022 was (within brackets you may see ranking points. They reflect the online impact, which the corresponding events got in social media) :
