What's in a Name? Why study Onomastics for the sake of Old Norse Mythology?

INS continues its seminar season throughout winter 2020/2021 with Stefan Brink


Name studies, or Onomastics, studies designations and labels of people (Anthroponymy) and places (Toponymy). Toponymy is particularly useful when studying societies with no written sources, since we then have a linguistic source which can complement other sources in the analyses, such as Archaeology.
