Abstract:The present paper aims at analysing the onomastic behaviour displayed by several communities of Romanian emigrants in the context of virtual communication and against the background of globalisation. Therefore, the user names that Romanian migrants choose as means of self-designation on forums designed specifically for their community are examined from the perspective of sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology. The study explores the issue of identity construction by means of virtual names and discusses the extent to which user names can be considered indicative of their bearers’ sociocultural and linguistic behaviour.
Key words:virtual name, sociocultural identity, linguistic behaviour
