Anthroponymy and Journalism. The way we, as journalists, sign our articles is quite important; we must knowingly take this decision and the signature should represent us. Some use first name initials followed by a last name. Others sign in full name, while there are authors who use pseudonyms instead of real names. Neither of the above possibilities is free of psychological connotations. To understand the phenomenon, a study of Romanian anthroponymy, which has undergone changes along time, is needed. A certain era, the innovative fashion and borrowed names from other languages have led to anthroponymy developments. In this paper we aim to address Romanian onomastics issues, from the journalism point of view. We are therefore discussing topics such as the formation of surnames, how some of them came to be widespread and sources of inspiration for first names.

Keywords: anthroponyms, journalism, pseudonyms, last name, first name.
