A marked elevate in documentation from Babylonia in the course of those centuries makes this the earliest interval during which such family members teams could be stories intimately. a huge element of the dissertation is an exam of local alterations in kinfolk identify utilization. family members names seem to have been hired such a lot prevalently in northern Babylonia, rather on the towns of Babylon, Borsippa, and Dilbat. there's a major volume of textual proof on hand from Nippur in principal Babylonia. even if, relatives names look very not often within the resources, suggesting that the inhabitants there didn't use of kinfolk names. There also are only a few attestations of relatives names within the texts from Uruk and Ur. unlike Nippur, even if, a radical prosopographical research makes it obvious that at Uruk, there have been kinfolk teams that pointed out themselves with a relatives identify. The dissertation concludes by means of contemplating the origins of those relatives teams within the moment millennium, drawing upon the sparse facts from the former centuries, and their next improvement within the first millennium.
