Documentary Film on Names #general


I am currently working on a documentary film about our names -- Where they
come from. What they mean. And why they matter. I am interested in any and
all interesting stories and examples of name changes that illustrate how our
(European) names were transformed/simplified/re-interpreted/shortened or
otherwise changed as part of the process of assimilation and Americanization
experienced by our immigrant parents and grandparents.

I am also interested to hear of any films you have seen that shed light on
this subject.

Please respond to me directly, and indicate whether you would be willing to be
interviewed for the film. Many thanks.
