    Abstract [en]

    The recently founded Nordic network New Trends in Nordic Socio-Onomastics was started as a workshop program in 2018 and 2019, funded by The Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The aim was to stimulate innovative research development within the socio-onomastic field by enabling Nordic researchers to come together, participate in discussions, explore new theoretical and methodological tools and identify new problem areas suitable for future joint Nordic projects. In this article, we present the network and the activities that have been organized in order to enhance international collaboration. We also discuss the current state of socio-onomastics in the Nordic countries and identify some important objectives and areas for future research. © Copyright by the Jagiellonian University Press & Authors

    Assessing Names?: Effects of Name-Based Stereotypes on Teachers’ Evaluations of Pupils’ Texts2017In: Names, ISSN 0027-7738, E-ISSN 1756-2279, Vol. 65, no 1, p. 3-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the effects of name-based ethnic and social stereotypes on teachers’ grading of pupils’ texts in contemporary Sweden. A total of 113 practicing Swedish high school teachers assessed an authentic pupil text with one of three male names inserted, each intended to evoke a certain ethnic or social stereotype. Participants also explained their grading and answered questions regarding key features of the text. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses were conducted. The study concludes that name-based stereotypes generally have little influence on teachers’ assessment in contemporary Sweden. Results indicate a systematic but small and not statistically relevant name effect. A negative effect can be seen with regard to an ethnically marked name. This effect is shown when teachers evaluate language proficiency, but not for other features of the text. Regarding socioeconomically marked names there is little systematic effect. The study also suggests, however, that there may be compensatory mechanisms limiting the name effect. © 2016 American Name Society.

    Att skapa kön: Könsmönster och könsroller i nyskapade förnamn2015In: Innovationer i namn och namnmönster: Handlingar från NORNA:s 43:e symposium i Halmstad den 6–8 november 2013 / [ed] Emilia Aldrin, Linnea Gustafsson, Maria Löfdahl & Lena Wenner, Uppsala: Norna-förlaget , 2015, p. 36-52Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish language conventionally separates female and male first names respectively. Previous research from Sweden, as well as other cultures, shows that first names for girls and boys are chosen in partly separate ways with a desire for separate characteristics and structures, in a way that often contributes to traditional gender stereotyping. When parents choose to create a completely new name for the child, they have an opportunity to use new structural and semantic patterns and thus may negotiate the traditional gender boundaries. This article investigates newly created first names in Sweden in order to explore to what extent and in what ways parents do this. The data consists of 226 newly created first names registered by SCB (Statistics Sweden) for children born in 2012. The overall conclusion is that the newly created names generally still express gender and recreate stereotypical gendered patterns contributing to symbolic dominance. When gender negotiation occurs, it is primarily in boys’ names.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the naming of objects and presents a socio-onomastic study of contempor-ary Swedish recreational boats. Based on survey data from 187 informants, the discussion focuses on the process of naming, name variation (in terms of gender, linguistic choices, semantic cat-egories and wordplay), and explicit reasons for names. Comparisons are drawn with personal naming. The influence of factors in the social context (type of boat and gender, age and education of the owner) is considered throughout, but generally found to be limited. It is argued that this kind of naming can be seen, rather, as a construction of the personal identity of the owner and of the boat concerned.

    Choosing a Name = Choosing Identity? : Towards a Theoretical Framework2014In: Names in daily life: Proceedings of the XXIV ICOS International Congress of Onomastic Sciences, Barcelona: Generalitat de Catalunya , 2014, p. 392-401Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a theoretical framework for applying an identity approach to personal naming. It also presents some results from a doctoral thesis project in which this framework has been applied in an analysis of parents’ choices of first names for their children. Questions discussed in this article include: To what extent do choices of first names function as acts of identity? Which aspects of first names are used as resources for identity creation? Which kinds of identities are created? To what extent are traditional sociolinguistic variables (such as age, education, etc.) able to account for the social variation of naming today? To what extent is the identity creation of naming negotiated from moment to moment? The discussion is based on results from two component studies: a written survey (with 621 participants) and group discussions (with 23 participants) conducted in Göteborg, Sweden 2007–2009.

    Creating identities through the choice of first names2017In: Socio-onomastics: The pragmatics of names / [ed] Terhi Ainiala & Jan-Ola Östman, Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017, p. 46-68Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Choosing a name for a child is seldom a matter of simple labelling. It is often rather a long and complex process. Names are collected for inspiration, compared and evaluated by the parents. Many aspects are taken into consideration and (more or less consciously) viewed in the light of the parents’ own emotional, aesthetic, ideological and social stances, as well as personal experiences and hopes for the child. In this chapter, the act of naming a child is regarded as an act of identity. Parents, through the choice of first name for a child, engage in a social act which is very much about expressing their own identity – who they are or who they want to be – and constructing a hoped-for identity for their child.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses patterns of personal naming in an urban environment. It focuses on parents’ choices of first names in contemporary Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden. The discussion is based on three proposed characteristics of urban environments often cited in urban culture research – innovation, awareness of trends and cultural meetings – and explores how these are reflected in a set of name data. The article also examines to what extent social variation exists in parents’ participation in these patterns and considers the parents’ age, education, housing and linguistic background. The analysed data consist of first names chosen for 621 children, all born in Gothenburg during the year 2007, and their parents’ motivations for the name choice as described in a written survey. The analysis is primarily quantitative. To some extent the article also refers to spoken data that were collected through focus group interviews with another twenty-three new parents in Gothenburg in 2008 and 2009. Both sets of data have previously been used in my PhD thesis, Naming as a social act. Parents’ choices of first names and discussions of first names in Göteborg 2007–2009 (2011). The article shows that all three of the proposed characteristics of urban life are prominent in the name data. Innovative first names, trendy first names and multicultural first names are common throughout the data regardless of social factors, suggesting that these patterns may be typical of urban naming rather than typical of a certain social group. However, the patterns are realized in somewhat different ways depending on social factors, which shows that the same name characteristics can be handled in different ways in order to create different social stances. Since the study does not include non-urban data for comparison we cannot conclude that the examined characteristics are specific for naming in urban environment, but it is hoped that the results can serve as a starting point for further research.

    Abstract [en]

    The primary aim of this article is to test the relevance of phonetic symbolism for people's conceptions of gender connotations in first names. Students were asked to grade their perceptions of seven female and male names. Primarily for female names certain phonetic properties correlated with higher perceived degree of femininity. However, the study also showed resistance towards gendering first names and attempts of "undoing gender".© Aldrin 2020

    Naming, Identity, and Social Positioning in Teenagers’ Everyday Mobile Phone Interaction2019In: Names, ISSN 0027-7738, E-ISSN 1756-2279, Vol. 67, no 1, p. 30-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes how a small group of Swedish teenagers handle onomastic choices of self- and other-referencing as part of their everyday mobile phone interaction. It further discusses how the teenagers explained their views regarding online names during interviews. The data are analyzed qualitatively using theories of identity and socialpositioning. Results show considerable differences between onomastic strategies used for self- and other-referencing. Self-referencing names were often practical, coherent, and authentic to the offline self, while other-referencing names were more flexible, creative, and socially positioned. However, the teenagers also displayed varying individual onomastic strategies and different folk-onomastic views on the function of usernames. © 2018 American Name Society

    Namnbrukets betydelse för social och kulturell representation i grundskolans läromedel. Beskrivning av ett projekt2020In: Meijerbergs arkiv for svensk ordforskning, ISSN 0348-7741, Vol. 44, p. 13-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Swedish school curriculum it states that the school must impersonate as well as convey certain founding values for the Swedish society, such as individual freedom and integrity, equality, solidarity and understanding of cultural pluralism. This paper is about an ongoing research project on how social and cultural representations in educational materials contribute to impersonate these commitments with a focus on the use of names. Naming strategies have been highly neglected or treated in a simplified, unsystematic way in previous studies in the field. This project analyses the kinds of names that are used for people and places in educational materials, which kinds of referents are named as well as not named and how the use of names contributes to creating images of social and cultural identities. The data consists of educational materials within three school subjects (Swedish, social studies and mathematics) with a focus on contemporary as well as diachronic patterns. The analytical approach is influenced by critical as well as positive discourse analysis.

    Namnval som social handling: Val av förnamn och samtal om förnamn bland föräldrar i Göteborg 2007–20092011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this doctoral thesis is to examine how parents in Sweden at the beginning of the twenty-first century use the process of naming as a resource to contribute to the creation of various identities for both themselves and their child. It is based on a two-component study — a postal survey and qualitative group interviews, both conducted in the city of Göteborg, Sweden — and includes parents with children born during 2007 and 2008. By combining different sources (names, surveys and interviews) and different methods (quantitative and qualitative), this study attempts to elucidate how first names and choices of first names can be given various social meanings. In contrast to previous socio-onomastic studies, this study considers not only whether naming contains any social variation, but also how and why such variation arises. The theoretical framework is a combination of onomastic, sociolinguistic, identity-theoretical and interactional theories. The results demonstrate that parents’ choice of first names for their children is an important social act. Through name choices and discussions of these choices, parents create what is known as social positioning, which in turn contributes to the creation of certain identities both for themselves and their child. A number of resources are identified which are used by parents to create different social positionings. This study also demonstrates how both macro-societal structures and interactional aspects influence this social positioning. Finally, this study argues that the observed social variation is best explained by the parents’ desire to identify with and contribute to the creation of different models for society, in which varying social values and attributes are important.

    Representing Sweden: A diachronic study of names and illustrations in Swedish textbooks from the 20th and 21st centuries2021In: Beiträge zur Namenforschung, ISSN 0005-8114, Vol. 56, no 1-2, p. 63-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the results from an ongoing project on naming patterns in Swedish social science textbooks from the 1920s to the 2010s, focusing on changing representations of gender and cultural diversity. Personal names are closely related to personal, social, and cultural identities, and this article therefore argues that the use of such names in textbooks contributes to indicating to pupils who should (and who should not) be seen as part of society, who is considered important enough to know by name, who is desirable to identify with and which names are considered appropriate for a certain identity. Six social science textbooks were analyzed using both quantitative analyses (of names) and qualitative analyses (of the illustrations of named and unnamed people). The results show how and to what extent the use of gendered and culturally marked personal names in social science textbooks changed over the period of study and emphasize some of the tensions involved in this process.

    Textbedömning i svenskämnet: attityder, erfarenheter och variation2015In: Forskning om undervisning och lärande, ISSN 2000-9674, E-ISSN 2001-6131, no 14, p. 62-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln undersöker praktiserande svensklärares attityder och erfarenheter kring textbedömning, samt betydelsen av sociokulturella faktorer för bedömarvariation. Materialet består av en webbenkät som besvarats av 135 svensklärare i Västsverige verksamma i årskurs 7–9. Frågorna behandlade textbedömning generellt, det nya betygssystemet, samt bedömning och beskrivning av en autentisk elevtext. Resultaten visar flera goda exempel och erfarenheter, men också behov av ökad information från Skolverket på flera punkter. Vidare framkommer en påfallande bedömarvariation, som föreslås hänga samman med en stor variation i synen på textkvalitet bland deltagarna. Bedömarvariationens samspel med den sociala kontexten (läraren, dennes erfarenhet samt skolmiljön) är begränsad men visar ett intressant mönster som efterfrågar fortsatt forskning.

    The social process of child naming in Sweden2017In: Beiträge zur Namenforschung, ISSN 0005-8114, Vol. 52, no 3, p. 301-321Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents results from a doctoral thesis in socio-onomastics (ALDRIN 2011 Namnval som social handling [Naming as a social act]). It is based on a postal survey from the year 2007 with 621 participants who were newly-become parents and were living in the area of Gothenburg, Sweden. The survey included approx. 40 questions on parents’ choice of name and the process of naming. The focus of this paper will be to what extent naming motives and the naming procedure as such (sources of inspiration, time of choice etc.) varies in relation to traditional sociolinguistic variables such as parents’ age, level of education, and the gender of the child. The presented analyses are primarily quantitative, consisting of univariate tests and tests of statistical signification. Based on these results, the paper discusses to what extent the act of naming a child can be seen as having a function as a social marker in contemporary Sweden and which of the investigated social variables are of greatest importance in this context.

    Ungdomars språkliga tilltal: En litteraturstudie2017In: Studia Anthroponymica Scandinavica, ISSN 0280-8633, Vol. 34, p. 101-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a systematic review of published research on adolescents’ use of proper names and other forms of address in their interaction with one another. The aim is to identify both central issues and gaps within the field, as the basis for a future research project. In all, 45 Scandinavian and English-language publications, dated between 1970 and 2015, are identified and analysed. The review reveals a number of recurring themes: playfulness, power and resistance, and identity. Several gaps in existing research are also identified, the most important of which are: combinations of data, theories and methodologies from both onomastics and interactional research; forms of address in digital communication, especially with regard to power issues; and finally young people’s perceptions of different ways of being addressed and how these influence their identity, power relations and well-being.

    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

    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses choices of first names in Sweden from a gender perspective and is a synthesis of two previous publications (Aldrin 2015a, b). Two sources of data are used: (1) a questionnaire survey of first names given to newborn children in Gothenburg in 2007, to which 621 responses were received, and (2) a list of 226 invented first names given to children all over Sweden in 2012. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods is used to explore to what extent contemporary Swedish naming is helping to maintain or renegotiate traditional gender roles and gender boundaries. The study shows that the first names chosen, both established and invented ones, often have structures, phonemes and connotations that create a picture of girls’ names as pleasant, soft, and linked more to the domestic context. Boys’ names, on the other hand, convey a picture of roughness and of connection to family and a global context, i.e. offer wider scope for action, creating a situation of symbolic dominance. However, there are also many instances of resistance and of active, conscious attempts to renegotiate gender patterns through choices of first names. This is achieved both by choosing established Swedish first names that have certain attributes, and by choosing invented first names. In most cases, the gender negotiation involves adding new elements to, or expanding existing elements of, traditional gender identities, rather than trying to create completely new gender identities. Girls’ names are mostly modified with regard to the structure of the beginning of the name, i.e. the vocalic ending that is gendered as a strong feminine marker in the Swedish name system is kept intact. Furthermore, invented girls’ names have even more traditionally gendered structures than the established girls’ names in contemporary use. Boys’ names, on the other hand, are modified through new strategies both for name beginnings and endings and regarding the length of names. Invented boys’ names, moreover, create new gender patterns to a greater extent than invented names for girls.

    Socioonomastiska perspektiv på personnamn, djurnamn och företagsnamn: fem smärre studier2017In: Ortnamnssällskapet i Uppsala årsskrift, ISSN 0473-4351, p. 5-13Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents five undergraduate dissertations in socio-onomastics written by students from Halmstad University in 2016 and presented during a visit to the Department of Scandinavian Languages, Scandinavian Onomastics, at Uppsala University in 2017. Two of the dissertations deal with personal names (a social constructionist approach to personal names in children’s literature, and perceptions of name and identity among senior citizens). Two others focus on animal names in contemporary times (a gender analysis of names of horses, and a comparative analysis of names within different dog breeds). The last undergraduate dissertation concerns the process of naming companies.

    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how a heterogenous group of first year university students perceive writing in general, academic writing in specific, as well as their own writing proficiency. A questionnaire (n 93) was created basing on theories on academic literacy and writing psychology. The results show varying attitudes among the students which highlight questions of the dimensions of writing, identity and group affiliations. Gender was of little importance, whereas age and self-stated writing skills correlated to some extent with the results. The small scale of the study does not permit far-reaching conclusions, but the results indicate attitudes that could have importance for the development of academic literacy. The study can be used as a start of departure for interventions that facilitate for groups with different backgrounds to participate in higher education. ©2020 Emilia Sturm Aldrin, Monica Eklund och Heike Peter.

    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

    Abstract [en]

    Innovations in names and name patterns was the theme of a Nordic Symposium held in Halmstad in November 2013. The symposium was arranged by Halmstad University in collaboration with NORNA. The proceedings present 20 symposium papers. They offers insights into names in multicultural environments, changes in the gender marking of first names, introduction of new names in the Swedish name day calendar, the role of names in literature, as well as emergence of new name patterns in place names, personal names, names of animals, planes, ships etc. The proceedings cover a large time span from iron age to contemporary time and deal with names from different Nordic countries as well as Germany. Several articles also present new theories and methods within the field of onomastics.
