dc.description.abstractNaming traditions arise as products of the culture in which they are used. This research asks the question: what happens when these traditions are transplanted into a society with different naming conventions? The focus of this investigation is on personal naming practices used in immigrant communities in Scotland. One established and one very new immigrant group were studied, and the different methods necessary to gain access to such subjects are examined in this discussion.en
