Each year, the Editorial Board of NAMES reviews the articles that have been published in the journal to select winners for its prestigious Best Article of the Year Award. In 2021, the deliberation process was delayed due to COVID. However, throughout the Winter and Spring of 2023, the members of the Editorial Board carefully reviewed all of the articles that appeared in the four issues of NAMES released in 2021. Publications were assessed for scientific innovation, academic writing style, research methodology, and overall potential to make a significant and lasting contribution to the field of onomastics research. After the votes were tallied, four publications clearly emerged as winners.
