The Journal of Literary Onomastics is the only scholarly periodical devoted to the study of names in literary texts (with "literary" defined as broadly as possible). Our focus is on literatures in the languages of Western and Central Europe of any period and any national origin. We are an affiliate publication of the American Name Society.The The Journal of Literary Onomastics also awards the Wilhelm Nicolaisen Prize in Literary Onomastics to the author of the best essay of each volume. The prize consists of a cash award of $150 to be given to the author(s); students and faculty of the State University of New York at Brockport are ineligible. The prize honors the late Wilhelm Nicolaisen, Distinguished Professor of English and Folklore (Emeritus) at the State University of New York, Binghamton, and later Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen. Throughout his career, Professor Nicolaisen made major contributions to scholarship in literary onomastics and was a frequent contributor to Literary Onomastics Studies.
