Personal Names in Ancient Anatolia

Among the Asiatic Greeks almost every Greek word could be used to form a personal name. Resources for naming include plant names, place names and theophoric names. This chapter analyses a group of names which are interesting because of their formation, meaning or origin (Ármalos, Dókkalos, Drábōn, Dōkeús, Heiamenós, Iddoúas and Kallóas, Kambalâs, Kápparis, Koíēs, Naódōros, Tónnios, Chrýsōros, Chrysēnios). The richness and colour of these onomastics, as shown in this small sample of names, has been a source of misinterpretations by scholars used to different naming styles.
