Abstract:

This present study covers the nicknames of Regensburg citizens that are contained within the Regensburg Sourcebook (c. 893-1378) (Regensberger Urkundenbuch), linguistically rendered and interpreted within their context. Nicknames are characterized as a subgroup of surnames, precursors to our modern family names, in that they should characterize the relevant name-bearer, whether in regard to external traits or to traits associated with one's personality, or as related to their social status or some notable event. The Regensburg's nicknames document the vocabulary of daily-life in common terms, chiefly from the fourteenth-century, which is not always present in the literature-oriented dictionaries. The alphabetically organized name book with 576 entries represents the basis of this volume but the study also goes into other aspects of naming, such as word-formation, the grammar of diminutive suffixes, and the development of appellative-based word material are examined in terms of semantics and intellectual history.
