Personal name systems in Finnic and beyond

Edited by Terhi Ainiala and Janne Saarikivi

This volume sheds light on personal name systems in various Finno-Ugrian languages. Special emphasis is placed on the reconstruction of name systems' historical strata and the cultural contacts reflected in personal names. Finnish, Veps, Karelian, Estonian, Saami, Mari and Hungarian names are under closer scrutiny.
