Names and Genders: Studies on the Onymic Doing and Undoing of Gender

Studien zum onymischen Un/doing Gender

Edited by: Damaris Nübling and Stefan Hirschauer
Personal names are a critical factor in establishing the division into two genders. The essays in this volume examine the gender impact of personal names from linguistic-onomastic, sociological, and historical viewpoints. They investigate, among others, informal names in close relationships, the naming of the unborn, renaming transsexuals, and German, Dutch, and Swedish unisex names.
