    Abstract [en]

    Results from an Internet-based survey on names in 2014, aimed atSwedish teenagers in secondary education are discussed. A total of 314youngsters, more boys than girls, did respond. Focus is on the teenagers’attitudes to first names, and on factors that make names attractive orunattractive. The main purpose is to gain more knowledge on youngsters’thoughts about choice and use of first names. The answers are analysedprimarily from gender aspects but also from socio-geographic aspects. Amodel of social positioning, as introduced by Aldrin (2011), is applied.Many Swedish teenagers prefer the same names as today’s parents, butthere are some indications that the teenagers are looking elsewhere. Espe-cially the girls prefer international names. Regarded as unattractive arenames popular 50 to 70 years ago, hyphenated first names and some na-mes of recent popularity. The names considered most attractive are Aliceand Erik, while Bert, Britta and Margareta are the most unattractive.More female names are mentioned as attractive, while there are moremale names given among the unattractive. There are no clear differencesbetween the attitudes from teenagers in big cities and those in smalltowns in this survey.

    Abstract [en]

    In htis article, women's names from the first half of the seventeenth century are presented and discussed on the basis of entries in parish registers from before 1660. The first part is mainly a quantitative study from the stock of baptismal names in Öster- and Västergötland. Regional differences and diachronic changes are observed, and the most frequent names are identified. The second part deals with name phrases in registers of death. An important question here is how and why women are identified by their own name, by a byname, or by reference to other individuals, usually men. The relationship between named and unnamed women is also discussed.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the many recent fluctuations in the forename stock in Sweden, both concerning the contents of the stock, and the popularity changes over the last decades. Many more names are now in use, and even more names have changed in frequency. This is partly a natural phenomenon, but it also reflects changes in the population structure. Which names are the popular names today? Where do the new names originate from? How many new names have reached a certain number of bearers? When new immigrant groups replace older ones, how is that reflected in the name stock? Are more pet forms of first -names used as official names nowadays? How are the latter, more liberal judicial interpretations of the Personal Names Act valid 1983–2017 reflected in the name usage? These questions are discussed in this paper. Comparisons are made between the stock of spoken names of all Swedish residents in the late 1990s and the current popular names of both babies and all Swedish residents.

    Names of companion animals: Rovers in the onomasticon?2016In: Names and their environment.: Proceedings from the 25th International Congress of Onomastic Sciences / [ed] Carole Hough & Daria Izdebska, Glasgow: University of Glasgow , 2016, Vol. 5, p. 114-122Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The names of companion animals could, from the outside, be seen as freely roving elements in the onomasticon. There are few or no legal restrictions on their given names, so, in theory, a dog, or a cat, could have any kind of word creation as a name. Dogs and other companion animals play a larger role as family members in many countries than ever before, something that possiblyhas an influence on their names. My major aim here is to establish, from a socio-onomastic viewpoint, whether animal owners in general take advantage of this apparent liberty, or whether they restrict themselves to using otherwise well-established name groups, e.g. anthroponyms or older zoonyms. The first part of the study is devoted to dog names. A large corpus of such names used in Sweden during the last decade is examined. The features of the most popular names given to dogs are studied and their relationship to popular baby names is discussed. This is combined with a study of dog names attested only once in the corpus. The results are supplemented with some findings on general attitudes to names of companion animals, taken from a recent questionnaire survey of animal names

    Abstract [en]

    Focus is on the names of companies in the Human Resources sector. Our study object are names of private job coaching firms in Sweden during the last ten years. A sample of these names is examined. Their usage of different languages, linguistic and onomastic features in the names, and the semantic meaning they convey are investigated. As these firms are recent additions to the Swedish commercial advertising landscape, some of the marketing strategies displayed on the companies' websites are discussed.

    Naming as a mirror of social structures: The usage of women's names in Early Modern Swedish official records2014In: Els noms en la vida quotidiana.

    Abstract [en]

    Referring to a person by his or her name is only one of several ways of identifying a person. In this paper, I will discuss some examples of different identifying means and, in particular, the usage of names, especially for women, in official records collected from several geographical areas and different socio-economic strata in 17th century Sweden. In accordance with the patriarchal and hierarchical society of that time, women were mostly denoted by their relationship to men, e.g. to their father, husband or son, and their own name isn’t always given in the notice. However, several women are recorded with their own name with no reference to any man. Some questions about this phenomenon are: Who were named? Why and when was she identified only by her name? Can the fact that a woman named on her own be seen as a sign of either high or low social status? Which women were unnamed in the records? What do these identifying strategies communicate? To penetrate these questions, I will apply a dialogical perspective in combination with gender aspects.

    Abstract [en]

    Names and Name-Bearers: On Unisex and Gender Inconsistent Names  In many cultures, one of the more important properties of a name is that a first name should indicate the bearer’s sex. This is even compulsory in some countries. Until a few years ago in Sweden, children and adults were not allowed to have first names traditionally borne by the opposite sex (genderinconsistent names). Some political parties and interest groups (e.g. LGBTQ-groups)6 regarded this attitude as discriminatory and have worked against it. After a court decision in 2009, the Swedish Tax Agency (where decisions on first names are taken) no longer regards genderinconsistent names as inappropriate for either adults or children. Gender-neutral or unisex names have, however, been in use for a long time. In the first major part of this paper I examine, through the results of three attitude surveys whether this new and more liberal view has any popular support among the Swedish people, i.e. whether people consider it okay to give boys’ names to girls and vice versa. All three surveys show that a majority of the respondents are against giving gender-inconsistent names to babies but that the attitude towards adults adopting such names is more allowing. In the second part of the paper, the results from an empirical study on the current use of unisex and genderinconsistent names for babies are discussed. My findings confirm earlier American studies showing that more unisex names have a background as male names than female names, that they are often without a long tradition in the country, and that many of them are short forms or pet forms stemming from different names, both male and female. However, my findings differ from those in the American studies in that most of the names used for children of both sexes are rather uncommon in Sweden.

    Names of companion animals – new patterns and structures

    In this paper, contemporary given names in Sweden to dogs and cats, the two most well-known species of companion animals, are presented and examined. Some of their morphological and semantic features are discussed. The author shows that a majority of the animal names are loans from the anthroponomasticon, mostly first names and pet forms of first names. The correspondence between the popular names for female animals and the popular names given to baby girls is striking. In contrast, popular names for male animals are chosen from a larger and more varied pool, which includes names of well-known personalities, both real and fictitious. The stock of traditional animal names is also larger for male animals. A tendency to give out-dated boy names to dogs is discussed and the author presents, through statistics of new baby names, the tentative explanation that this is a way of making these names acceptable as names for little boys again. The contemporary habit of giving companion animals in Sweden hitherto unknown or rare personal names is also discussed, and it is argued that this usage functions as a trial balloon for these names so that they later can be given to babies.

    Abstract [en]

    The article deals with the proposed new law on personal names in Sweden, as well as with some important features on the recent giving and usage of personal names. In the first part of the article, the most important issues in the new proposal are presented, and their similarities or discrepancies with the present law are discussed. In the second part, some new baby names and fashionable names types of both first names and family names are studied. The author argues that, even though there are many examples of newly coined names (or unique spellings), the structure of the Swedish naming system is fairly solid, and poses some questions on what might happen under the future law.

    Nya efternamn och förslag till ny lag om personnamn i Sverige2013In: Frá Sturlunga til West Venture: Heidursrit til Anfinn Johansen á 60 ára degnum / [ed] Zakarias Svabo Hansen et al, Torshavn: Fródskapur - Faroe University Press, Tórshavn , 2013, p. 171-176Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, some changes concerning the legislation of surnames in the recently proposed new law on personal names in Sweden are discussed. Some important new elements are that it will be allowed to form double surnames, that the most common surnames (with more than 2 000 bearers, around 470 names) will be ”free” to take for anyone, and that it will be harder to take a name that is too similar to an existing surname (apart from the “free” names). The proposed law also stipulates that all new name suggestions are to be subject to linguistic approval. With the help of name examples taken from new surnames passed in 2012, the ruling under the present name law is contrasted to that in the new proposed law and some different results are noted.

    Nötkreatur i Sverige: Kulturhistoriska och samtida perspektiv2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kor, tjurar och oxar ger oss mat, kläder, gödning och de präglar vårt landskap på många sätt. Nio forskare, i ämnen från veterinärmedicin över agrarhistoria och etnologi till arkeologi och språkvetenskap, visar här nötkreaturens betydelse och villkor från stenålder till våra dagar.

    Författarna skriver om nötkreaturens historia, om kor och arkeologi, om sjukdomar och djurvälfärd, om kornas viktiga roll i bondesamhället, om kommandorop till oxar och om vad som hänt med djurhållning och avel under de senaste årtiondena. Djurens stora betydelse visas också i kapitel om de många folkliga föreställningarna kring dem och om tjurars och oxars individuella namn.

    Boken bygger på föredrag vid det nötkreaturssymposium som hölls i Uppsala Arkivcentrum november 2018 och är redigerad av Katharina Leibring och Ingvar Svanberg.
