[edit] [top]General Argeyazic Personal Names

Argeyazic names are mostly derived from plants, animals, and natural phenomena. Edible and fruit-bearing plants are largely avoided, as are dangerous or threatening animals; there are exceptions, however, such as *ozak "lion." The gender associated with a name is not necessarily the grammatical gender of the noun it is derived from.

[edit] [top]Continental Argeyazic Personal Names

An additional series of names derived from adjectives for positive or desirable characteristics is found in the Continental Argeyazic languages. In modern Algaz, these often reflect parents' hopes and wishes for their child, and this was likely the case when the practice emerged. It is unclear when this was, however; these names are found in both Madashiri and Algaz as well as personal names from other Continental languages found in Madashiri, Hafsighi, and Letsatian sources. Given the lack of attestation of early Continental languages, however, it is difficult to determine if the phenomenon developed before or after the breakup of Continental Argeyazic.

A later innovation saw the creation of compound names combining the adjectival names with the nominal ones inherited from Proto-Argeyazic. The two paired words are not necessarily semantically linked; these adjectives may also have originally reflected parental aspirations, but it has also been suggested that they could be names of ancestors or relatives, or have originated as two separate names. The practice is first documented in Madashiri names, and became popular with the Hafsighi aristocracy in decades following the conquest of Madashir. As a result, many of the Algaz compound names appear to be calques of popular combinations in Madashiri. In modern Algaz, these names are standardized and are not always obviously compounds.

[edit] [top]Family Names and Patronymics

Many family names in Algaz and Hemeshi originate from ancient clan names. These often have unclear etymologies, and in many cases originate from other Argeyazic and non-Argeyazic languages. Other surnames, which likely developed later, are derived from professions, attributes, or personal names. In both cultures, surnames are traditionally patrilineal and are not changed on marriage. Today, however, it is common in some circles of for people to be given both of their parents' surnames. In addition to advocates for gender equality, this practice is quite common among the members of the former Algazi aristocracy, where it serves to indicate membership in both of their parents' noble houses. Despite their long history of competition and rivalries, relations between aristocratic families have become increasingly close since the 19th Century, at the same time that Algazi society has become less patrilineal and patriarchal; as a result, children of aristocratic parents today are generally considered to belong to both of their parents' houses.

Personal names in Algaz additionally include a patronymic, located after the personal name and family name(s). This practice developed among the nobility in the 16th and 17th Centuries and spread among wealthy commoners and, eventually, the population at large. By the beginning of 19th Century, the practice had become the norm. The patronymics are derived from the Algazi words esha "son" and ama "daughter;" however, their forms vary regionally. In the western and central Algazi Union, they precede the father's name and are hyphenated (eg. Enin Udhun am-Bara, Amar Tabiz esh-Ebek), while in the east they are suffixed directly to the father's name, with the initial vowel of the suffix replacing a final vowel in the name (eg. Jir Ebin Takamesh, Fayrem Bayz Hatam). In the northern Algazi Union and in most diaspora communities, where where the Algazi population originates fro multiple regions, both forms are used, with the choice usually following the form used in the father's name. Matronymics were introduced in the second half of the 20th Century to be used in addition to or instead of the patronymic; however, they have yet to find wide acceptance, and today are largely limited to advocates for gender equality and children of single mothers or female same-sex couples.
