Northern Names - regional aspects of the names of places and people
This Study Day will feature a variety of presentations on the history and development of first names, surnames, place names and the cultural significance of each.
This event will enable us to explore the depth and richness of some of the recent work in the academic area of Names Studies, which will cast light on our developing understanding of the cultural significance of the names of people and places. Speakers include RHC Director Dr Fiona Edmonds, former RHC Director Prof Angus Winchester, Peter Iles of the Lancashire Place Name Survey, Dr Eleanor Rye of Nottingham University and Dr George Redmonds, author of two books on the significance of names.
