About the Author

Joel Mann is a Medical Technologist in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. He is an avid genealogist as well as a layman in the field of onomastics.


A mild mannered medical technologist by day, Mann transmutes into a student of topographical onomastics when bitten by his interest in history and genealogy. Here he compiles elements of place-names that he has spent much time looking up in atlases, dictionaries, and gazetteers; along with their meaning, the language they come from, and often an example of their use in an actual name. He confesses that he is a layman in the field, and must rely on his sources for accuracy. * Reference and Research Book News *
This book will be of the greatest interest to the education amateur, browsing out of the same historical and/or genealogical curiosity that inspired Mann to write it. Serious onomastic professionals who lack language-specific resources also will find this volume useful in many cases, given the sheer quantity of raw material it contains. * Names: A Journal of Onomastics, Vol. 55, No. 1 (March 2007) *
...a useful book... * "American Reference Books Annual" *
This dictionary defines elements of place names from over 300 languages. * American Reference Books Annual *
