Wonderful article on "Personal Names"

Dana Huff, on her Our Family History blog, links to an article titled "The use of personal names" by Roger Darlington in the UK - posted at http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/useofnames.html.

This article is long, and fascinating. The Western European naming customs apply to North America also, because of the ancestral connections back to Western Europe. The author goes on to discuss Eastern Europe, Arab, Central Asian, East Asian, African and Australasian naming customs.

Thanks, Dana, for the link, and Roger for the scholarship and information.
