Abstract EN

This study is based on anthroponomastics (anthroponymy), the study of personal names, which is one of the principal branches of onomastics: the study of proper names of all kinds.

In this study, personal names of Makkan males and females are investigated hoping to shed some light on the naming system applicable in the city of Makkah, in particular, and in Saudi Arabia in general.

Thus, the study attempts to answer the following questions:
1- What are the socio-cultural aspects of Makkan anthroponomastics?
2- What are the linguistic aspects of Makkan anthroponomastics?
