Lycia in southwestern Asia Minor is a region which was particularly characterized by the mingling of diverse cultural traits. Persian, Greek, and Roman influences interacted with a strong Anatolian substratum and with each other in various constellations, resulting in complex hybridized phenomena. Such processes can be observed most clearly in Lycian onomastics, a field of research which was revolutionized when volume VB of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names was published in 2013. This paper attempts to use this immensely useful tool to provide a broad overview of the development of Lycian onomastics from the archaic to the late Roman periods.
