Onomastics Reading Group

Onomastics Reading Group

The Onomastics Reading Group (or Onomastication) meets roughly fortnightly on a Thursday at 12 noon in term-time to discuss anything and everything relating to name studies. This ranges from onomastic theory to the names of omelettes to names in medieval charters; presentations have been given by students and academics from Glasgow and other institutions on a range of subjects including Ainmean-Àite na h-Alba (Gaelic Place-Names of Scotland), the digitisation of the place-name series in Denmark and personal naming patterns in Scotland; one meeting included sampling single malts in the name of onomastic research. Everyone with an interest in name studies is very welcome to bring a packed lunch and join in; tea and snacks are provided.
