Two names enthusiasts, Philip Dance, Member, International Council of Onomastic Sciences (ICOS), and the Society for Name Studies in Britain and Ireland and Ed Lawson, Member, American Name Society, The Canadian Society for the Study of Names, as well as ICOS. Learned that each, independently, had been collecting onomastic items.

The items collected were in rough form. Some were complete and had been checked. Others definitely needed more work. Neverthelss, they decided to integrate what they had, feeling that researchers and scholars would benefit get at least some useful information.

Many of the items were described by the journal involved or by others. Many of the abstracts are identified. Here are some:

Author = Abstracts understood to be written by author of article or book. Sometimes the abstracts are in quotes. This is also the author's abstract.

Bib3 = Lawson current working notes.

ERIC = Education Resources Information Center (ERIC).

Lí87 = Lawson, Edwin D. (Compiler). (1987). Personal names and naming: An annotated bibliography. Westport, CT: Greenwood; London: Westport Publications, 185p. Refs. Items from this source are included with copyright permission of Greenwood Press.

Lí95 = Lawson, Edwin D. (Compiler). (1995). More names and naming: An annotated bibliography. Westport, CT: Greenwood, 320p. Refs. Items from this source are included with copyright permission of Greenwood Press.

Publisherís Abstract = Abstract or description provided by publisher, often in promotional material.

Smith = Smith, Elsdon C. (1965). Personal names: A bibliography. Detroit: Gale Research, 226 p. (Originally published in 1952 by the New York Public Library). Items from this source are in the public domain through the generosity of Elsdon C. Smith, co-founder of the American Name Society.

We hope that our efforts will assist scholars in their work on onomastics.
