Become a Member

Membership in the ANS includes access to a community of scholars and its communications, eligibility to present at conferences, and a subscription to NAMES: A Journal of Onomastics.

If you’re already a member, and need to renew your membership click here.

You become a member by subscribing to NAMES: A Journal of Onomastics. As the final step in registration/renewal, you will be redirected to Taylor & Francis. Click on the appropriate membership option and pay with a major credit card. For additional payment options, contact Taylor & Francis.

Please note: Beginning in 2019, new memberships and renewals will be handled through the ANS website, rather than via Taylor & Francis. Renewal notices will be sent out starting on November 23, 2018, via email and paper mail.

In 2015, Maney, the previous publisher, was acquired by Taylor & Francis.

If you encounter any difficulties registering your membership via the Taylor & Francis website, please contact us at info[@] Our goal is to make the process as painless as possible – but we know that problems do occur. We will do our best to expedite your membership request!
