Languages of publication
Parents looking for a name to give their child reach for many different sources. For some it can be a family tradition recorded in their own memory or their relatives, for others it is the name fashions available on the internet, in the newspapers, or in the various mass media. Sometimes help is also sought from a numerologist, astrologer, fortune-teller or specialised internet applications. Other important sources for finding a name are also books and dictionaries, where more information on origins, history or even the features of the name’s character is given. There are individuals’ own sources and ideas as well.
