Family Names Derived from Given Names

Edited by: Konrad Kunze and Damaris Nübling

With over 2,000 annotated maps, the Atlas of German Family Names (DFA) makes accessible for the first time Germany’s entire family name inventory according to statistical frequency and geographic dissemination. Linguistic considerations are examined in a section on grammar, while cultural historical aspects are illuminated in a lexical section. Volume 6 documents family names that are derived from given names.
