Children as Creators of Names

Publication: Studii și cercetări de onomastică și lexicologie, I (1-2), p. 303
Publisher:Editura Sitech
Abstract:Children are named, at birth, by the adults, but in the onomastic repertoire from which the names are selected there are surprisingly many names derived from hypocorisms. These are variants pronounced as such by children in the stage of language acquisition – short names, phonetically simple and associated with caressing nuances. In time, they are taken and used by the adults and can become first-names or even last-names, the percentage of which is significant in Romanian.
Key words:children, creators, hypocorisms, first-names, last-names
