This essential work with its more than a thousand maps and commentaries isthe first to document the surname stock of the Federal Republic of Germany bystatistical occurrence and geographical distribution. It meets the interests oflinguists with a grammatical part (three volumes) dealing with the phonematics,graphematics, morphematics and syntagmatics of family names, while culturalhistorians and population historians are served with a lexical part (three volumes- surnames by place of origin and domicile, by occupation and by nicknames,by given names). The atlas provides a new basis for onomastics. It alsopresents an indispensable aid to other disciplines from social history throughresearch into settlement and migration to genetics.
