Join the American Name Society!

If you enjoy reading about names, we encourage you to join the American Name Society and share your name news with us! Membership is very affordable, with yearly dues of $25.

Yearly dues support the mission of the American Name Society: to promote the study of onomastics. Amongst the many ways that the ANS works to achieve this goal, one very important way is by funding our open access journal Names: A Journal of Onomastics, which has been a leading peer-reviewed journal in the field of onomastics since 1952. Check out the latest issue of the journal here:

Membership in the ANS also allows access to a community of scholars and its communications, as well as eligibility to present your research at the ANS annual conferences and the ability to submit articles to Names: A Journal of Onomastics.

Keep apprised of the latest onomastic research by joining today!
