Our Research Interest

We are especially interested in the parts of the world from which different names and naming practices have originated. We are also interested in how the current geography of names can reveal patterns of migration both within and between countries; and seek to describe and explain changing fashions in the naming of children, houses, and streets.

Sales of Origins software licences to government and commercial organisations provide funding for ongoing research and product development.

For clarity, OriginsInfo does not specialise in

  • the etymology (or meaning) of names,
  • establishing the first appearance of different names from historic records,
  • the study of how names have evolved over the centuries,
  • tracing ancestral lineage, or,
  • providing a genealogical research service.
