    Vad säger mitt namn om mig?: En folkonomastisk studie av vuxnas syn på relationen mellan namn och identitet2017In: Norna-rapporter, ISSN 0346-6728, no 96, p. 21-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to study how Swedish adults conceptualize the relationship between their name and identity and how their views relate to scientific theories. It also discusses to what extent the relation between name and identity changes throughout life and which social factors may influence this. The data consists of 173 written survey answers, including both highly structured answers and freely written comments. Perspectives from folk onomastics, sociocultural identity theory and psychological theories life span identity are combined in the analysis. Results indicate that most people do not experience that their name reveals anything about their identity, however a third of the participants do see such a relation. This is often conceptualized as a process and includes both personal and social identity traits. A third of the participants further perceive that this relationship has changes throughout life and basing on these results the article suggests a tentative model of the life development of name identity through certain phases.

    Vad säger väl ett namn?: Reflektioner kring teorin om markerade namn utifrån exemplet etniska konnotationer till förnamn2023In: Norna-rapporter, ISSN 0346-6728, Vol. 100, p. 57-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People and culture can move across borders bringing personal names across traditional linguistic boundaries. This process has changed and enriched the use of personal names throughout history – and continues to do so in our time. However, names can also lead to name based ethnic discrimination. This article discusses ethnic connotations to first names in Sweden that were originally imported from other languages, some quite recently, others centuries ago. A survey was conducted to investigate factors that potentially influence people’s ethnic connotations to first names: a) structural properties deviating from the main Swedish norm, b) how frequently the name occurs in Sweden, and c) how long the name has been established in Sweden. Furthermore, the article uses the results to discuss and problematize the concept of “marked” and “unmarked” names. © Respektive författare 2023

    Människans möte med kommersiella namn: en pilotstudie med den nya metoden eye tracking2023In: Norna-rapporter, ISSN 0346-6728, Vol. 100, p. 191-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a pilot study of how brand names and product namesare recognized in commercials. Previous research has primarily focused oncommercial names from the perspective of the enterprise, whereas we inthis study shift focus to a user perspective. The paper also presents a newmethod for onomastic study which was used in the pilot study: eye tracking.Eye tracking implies digitally registering and analyzing patterns in eyemovements in order to explore how particular features are recognized andcognitively processed in interaction with other features in the context. Thepaper describes the eye tracking method and its theoretical foundation aswell as apply it in a small pilot study. Six advertisements containing a totalof 12 commercial names and different visual structures were presented to10 study participants. Basing on the results of the eye tracking analysis, wediscuss how names in different visual settings have been recognized andremembered and identify potential research questions for future research.We also evaluate the utilization of the method as such and discuss itsimplications for future onomastics. © Respektive författare 2023

    The significance of nicknames in the making and performance of identity: The examples youth and gender identity

    This article analyses the nickname’s significance for the construction of identity. The issues I specifically discuss are as follows: 1) How does the nickname contribute in the construction of identity? 2) How is youth and gender identity constructed through nicknames? My approach to identity is based on a constructivist perspective where the starting-point is that the identity is originally individual but also perceived as collective in a group constructing process where nicknames can be used to announce inclusion or exclusion of the group.

    In the analysis, I am using 198 nicknames that are collected through interviews and questionnaires. Name-bearers usually get their nicknames when they are children or adolescents. A gender perspective on the issue shows that it is more common for women to get nicknames at the age of 0–5 years, while men get, to a greater extent, their nicknames at the age of 11–15 years. However, it is more common that men’s nicknames contain different features which reinforce traditional gender roles. The conclusion is that the nickname can be an important linguistic resource for constructing identity.
