First volume of the new Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics is now published

We are happy to announce that the first volume of Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics / Nordisk tidskrift för socioonomastik is now published online with free open access. It contains a collection of articles with various socio-onomastic perspectives including an interactional approach to the use of disease names, commodification of sponsored place names, sociopragmatic variation in references related to female first names – and more!

Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics (NoSo) is a platform for research that explores the role of names in societies and in social interaction. The journal has a broad approach, including historical as well as contemporary data, different methods, and both theoretical and practical research questions. The focus is Nordic in the sense that the research presented should be of interest from a Nordic point of view.
