The Society for Name Studies in Britain and Ireland (SNSBI) is a learned society for members with interests in proper names, including place-names, personal names, and surnames relating to the British Isles. The Society's president is Carole Hough.
The SNSBI is the successor to the Council for Name Studies in Great Britain and Ireland, which was set up in the 1960s to bring together scholars who were working in the field of onomastics in the British Isles. Membership of the council was originally by invitation, but in the late 1980s it was felt an open society would be more appropriate. As a result, the SNSBI was formally inaugurated in November 1991.
The SNSBI took over the publication of the Council's journal Nomina. It holds a day conference each autumn, as well as an annual weekend conference in spring. It has a website which provides details of future events and of the articles in past issues of Nomina.
