Names and Naming Patterns in England, 1538-1700
Clarendon Press, 1997 - 223 sider
This is a study of names given to children born in England between 1538 and 1700. Drawing on statistical data from forty English parishes, Scott looks at the most commonly used names, how children came to be given these names, why they were often named after their godparents and parents, and how social status affected the names chosen.
