Name Studies in Estonia
Although there are already two surveys beginning with the early days of Estonian onomastic studies (J. SIMM 1975, M. KALLASMAA 1995b), it seems proper not to miss the period here either.

1. First studies
1.1. The Learned Estonian Society The Baltic countries witnessed a considerable interest in place names in the first half of the 19th century. Before that a few lists of Estonian place names had been compiled and published by AUGUST WILHELM HUPEL in “Topographische Nachrichten I–III”, Riga 1774–1782. In 1841 the Learned Estonian Society invited pastors to put down place names and send them to the Society. The appeal was repeated in 1868, 1876 and 1879. The pastors remained passive, but in 1888 a list of Estonian estate and parsonage names was submitted by K. KÜGELGEN. At their meetings the Baltic-German historians belonging to the Society discussed the possible etymologies of some Estonian place names, also touching upon their origin. In 1907 W. SCHLÜTER suggested that a full inventory be compiled of the place names used in the territory inhabited by Estonians. Although the collections of the Learned Estonian Society are not significant, the Society served as a hotbed for two predecessors of the Estonian toponymy. Those were MIHKEL WESKE and JAKOB HURT. M. WESKE discussed the names on -vere (1877), J. HURT dealt with those on -st (1876) and their possible genesis. Their conclusions sound quite acceptable. According to HURT, the origin of the Estonian names on -ste lies in tribal names on -ne, which in place names appear in the genitive plural form. Toponymic studies proper did not, however, start in Estonia until the early 20th century. 1.2. Danish Taxation list For Northern Estonia we have lists of village names compiled by the monks who baptised Estonians during the 13th century Danish conquests. The Estonian place names reported in the so-called Liber Census Daniae (LCD) have constantly served material for research and discussion for both toponymists and historians ever since the Baltic Germans (G. M. KNÜPPFER,

C. PAUCKER, J. A. SCHIRREN. W. SCHLÜTER, Fr. G. V. BUNGE). The place names of LCD are also addressed in the first longer study of Estonian place names, produced by JAAN JÕGEVER in 1913: “Mis kõnelevad Liber Census Daniae (Daani hindamise raamatu) kohanimed Eesti rahva minevikust” (What can the place names in Liber Census Daniae [Danish Taxation List] tell us about the history of the Estonian people). The pastor and folklorist MATTIAS JOHANN EISEN discussed the same subject (the eloquence of LCD place names of the Estonian people’s history) in his book “Daani hindamise raamat. Liber Census Daniae” (Danish Taxation List. Liber Census Daniae) published in 1920, and the historian A. WESTRÉN-DOLL touched upon it in the issue 1921: “Die nordestnishe Siedlung” (North-Estonian settlement), as well as did some other authors. In 1933 a fundamental study called “Die Estlandliste der Liber Census Daniae” (The Estonian lists of Liber Census Daniae) was published. Its author PAUL JOHANSEN was the Head of Tallinn City Archives. For him place names served as basis for a whole historical hypothesis. But he also presents a phonetic analysis of the names, their alternative spellings as well as modern forms, and if possible, also their etymologies. As a result his book is rich enough in linguistic information to serve as a welcome handbook for every Estonian toponymist.

Name Studies in Estonia

In addition, toponymy was one of the interests of the above-mentioned historian A. WESTRÉN-DOLL. His articles “Beiträge zur estnischen Ortsnamen- und Sprachforschung” (Contributions to Estonian toponymy and linguistics; 1921), WESTRÉN-DOLL 1922 on the place names on -vere, and “Grundwörter in estnishen Siedlungsnamen” (Base words in Estonian place names; 1927) on the base words of the Estonian place names lay the foundation to the studying of the non-initial components of those names. 1.3. The contribution of M. J. Eisen During the first period of Estonian independence (1918–1940) attention was paid mainly to some individual names. At the same time foundation was laid to place-name collection. The Academic Mother Tongue Society provided grants for students to collect place names all over the country. Their “harvest” makes up the kernel of the present-day collection of place names kept at the Dialect Archives of the Institute of the Estonian Language. M. J. EISEN collected a considerable number of place names, which, however, he could not thoroughly analyse himself. His collection is kept at the Estonian Literary Museum in Tartu. M. J. EISEN has offered some etymologies: Lalli (1917), Laiuse (1919), Põldsamaa (1921b), Pedja (1923), Pilkuse (1924a), Türi (1927), Uderna (1929), Norra (1931) etc., and reviewed a few types of names, like the Lapi-names (lapi ‘Lappish’): “Lapi Eestis” (Lapi in Estonia; 1913), Soome-names (soome ‘Finnish’): “Soome Eestis” (Soome in Estonia; 1914), Läti-names (läti ‘Latvian, Lettish’): “Läti jäljed Eestis” (Traces of Läti in Estonia; 1921a) in Estonia. The work was carried on by Paul Ariste (1969). M. J. EISEN has also studied some German names transferred to Estonia: “Saksamaalised kohanimed Eestis” (Place names transferred from Germany to Estonia; 1926, added to by PRANTS 1927), and even some such place names of Estonian origin that have survived in the German form, yet are not to be found in Estonian any more: “Eesti keeles kadunud, saksa keeles püsinud eestikeelsed kohanimed” (The Estonian place names disappeared from Estonian, but surviving in German; EISEN 1924b). Notably, from the 13th up to the early 20th century most of the upper class in Estonia was German-speaking. The German names they used for the local estates and townships were not in use among the Estonians. Those names could of course, be of a German origin, but it could also happen that they had absorbed an old Estonian name of the place (the name of a village replaced by the estate, or some other Estonian word). There was, for example, an estate at the parish of Püha on the Isle of Saaremaa, the German name of which, Sall, originates in the Estonian word salu ‘grove’. At the same time


The Swedes in Estonia M. Julius Mägiste Place names have also inspired the great Estonian linguist JULIUS MÄGISTE to produce such articles as “Eesti kubjas. PAUL JOHANSEN has published a study on the Swedish settlement in Estonia with place names discussed as well: “Nordische Mission. the Ersan pando or the Mokshan panda ‘hill’ (1957a). Although some of the etymologies suggested by PAUL ARISTE have been called into question. 1. the foundation of Reval. sound’. Thereby he started a line of research.

A few names are of Estonian-Swedish origin. soome väylä ja Väinämöinen” (The Estonian väin ‘strait. though. and PAUL JOHANSEN. In his etymological article on the place names of the Reigi and Pühalepa parishes on the Isle of Hiiumaa PAUL ARISTE also deals with some Swedish place names pointing out the Estonian substratum in them (1938). however.

The basic list . One of the reasons is the fact that the Estonian name collections have not been sufficiently studied yet. The book is based on the place-name collection of M. 2. 1981). less to Germany and Russia. as well as an Estonian-German name list. as the collections available deny any other approach. Despite the fact that not all his etymologies are reliable. The list was compiled by The Estonian Historical Archives to provide a handy source of reference to anybody interested either in the archive materials or in earlier German and Russian publications. MÄGISTE supports the guess that Walgatabalve could rather have been situated in the parish of Vastseliina. as only those estates were included that existed at the moment. J.1. *** For onomastic theory most Estonian linguists have hitherto been looking up to Finland and Sweden. The name has still remained a tricky one to localise. ENN ERNITS (1978) brings some arguments for Valga. This publication contains Estonian estate names as used in different languages. Estate names Good source material can be found in “Eesti ala mõisate nimestik” (List of estates situated on the Estonian territory. where a village and mill called Valge(n)palo still existed in the 16th–17th centuries. Most studies deal with individual names.Name Studies in Estonia 5 the last mentioned article J. As for general theory. the principles have been taken over from abroad rather than devised at home. or even to the whole parish. Until most recently the population of Estonian place names has been addressed as a homogeneous set. “Eesti ala mõisate nimestik” (List of estates on the Estonian territory) contains a basic list with the German names of the estates presented in alphabetical order and provided with some additional data on the estates. Monographs and articles addressing the whole Estonian territory The book “Etymologishe Untersuchung über estnishe Ortsnamen” (An etymological study of Estonian place names) by LAURI KETTUNEN (1955) has become a desktop manual for any student of Estonian toponymy. MÄGISTE argues against LAURI KETTUNEN’s opinion that the Walgatabalve occurring in the Heinrici Chronicon Lyvoniae could be associated with the parish and township name Põlva. The name lists of the directories were also incomplete (particularly as for dairy farms). or gave them with numerous orthographic mistakes. EISEN. The old directories previously used either missed the Estonian names of the estates. Beside Põlva it has been suggested to have once belonged to the town of Valga. 1 2. the book is a bulky source of relevant information.

Nevertheless. the monograph has an ethnographic rather than linguistic bias. This view is in harmony with an earlier theory released by PAUL ALVRE. “Eesti mõisad” (Estonian estates. as a possibility at least.

Farm names The Estonian farm names have been discussed in the monograph “Talunimed läbi aegade” (Farm names throughout ages. the development of family names into farm names. 1995) by the ethnographer GEA TROSKA.

An onomastic student with a linguistic background will certainly welcome the book for its abundant background information as well as many an early mention of farm names found in archive records. GEA TROSKA argues that -pere belonged to the name of an older unit that could later develop into the . Two revised editions of the book have hitherto been published: “Eesti ala mõisate nimestik” (List of estates on the Estonian territory. while the oldest layer of farm names still accessible are names of isolated households. even some regional differences in the time of farm-name emergence should not be excluded.5 Marja Kallasmaa represents a table including the German name.
