    Mitzlaff, F. & Stumme, G. Onomastics 2.0 - The Power of Social Co-Occurrences 2013   misc URL 
    Abstract: Onomastics is "the science or study of the origin and forms of proper names
    persons or places." ["Onomastics". Merriam-Webster.com, 2013.
    tp://www.merriam-webster.com (11 February 2013)]. Especially personal names

    influenced by different factors, such as the social context, language,
    ltural background and, in particular, personal taste.
    With the rise of the Social Web and its applications, users more and more

    stributed, collaborative data collections. These sources of data also reflect
    rrent and new naming trends as well as new emerging interrelations among
    The present work shows, how basic approaches from the field of social network
    alysis and information retrieval can be applied for discovering relations
    ong names, thus extending Onomastics by data mining techniques. The
    nsidered approach starts with building co-occurrence graphs relative to data
    om the Social Web, respectively for given names and city names. As a main
    sult, correlations between semantically grounded similarities among names
    .g., geographical distance for city names) and structural graph based
    milarities are observed.
    The discovered relations among given names are the foundation of "nameling"
    ttp://nameling.net], a search engine and academic research platform for given
    mes which attracted more than 30,000 users within four months,
    derpinningthe relevance of the proposed methodology.
