ROMANY FORENAMES -
COMPARISONS OF FOUR MAJOR FAMILIES -
Boswell, Heron, Lee, Smith
By Robert Dawson (A5, 40 pages)

In this publication, first names of four Romany families - Boswells, Herons, Lees and Smiths - have been compared to look at the frequency of their usage both within and between families. The usefulness of such a listing is in identifying ‘marker’ names - that is, unusual names which tend to be found amongst Romanies and other Traditional Travellers, and also as an aid to finding links between families - for instance, given a particular name in a family other than these four, the likelihood of a link with one or more of these four families.
