INTRODUCTION.


The following list of Philippine baptismal names originated with Mr. E.
E. Schneider, a teacher in the Bureau of Education in the division of
Ambos Camarines, and was submitted to the undersigned in October of
last year.

Mr. Schneider found that very great difficulty is experienced by
American teachers in determining the correct spelling of the proper
names of Filipino pupils enrolled in our schools. Filipino teachers
also are frequently careless in this matter, and, through neglect and
the absence of proper standards, the spelling of proper names in the
Philippines has undergone great corruption. The necessity for such a
list as this is certainly apparent to anyone who has had the task of
properly enrolling pupils in a school.

Mr. Schneider’s list comprises something more than 1,400 names. They
were in large part taken from the Roman Catholic calendars, but other
names were added by him from school registers and other sources.

It was Mr. Schneider’s recommendation that the matter be submitted to
revision here in Manila, and this task was excellently performed by Mr.
Emerson Christie. Mr. Christie went through a great number of the
cedula lists of Manila, examining over 25,000 names, and in this way
verified and corrected many doubtful names. In making corrections of
the spelling of these names as they appear on the cedula lists, Mr.
Christie followed an authorized edition of the Roman Martyrology,
published in Madrid in 1891. In adding written accent marks he followed
the rules of the Royal Spanish Academy as set forth in its
authoritative grammar in Chapter III, Part IV.

Mr. Christie desired to express his deep sense of obligation to
Monsignor Fowler, Father Stanton, S. J., Father O’Connell, S. J.,
Father Sotero, who aided him in the work and collaborated with him; and
to Mr. Ellis Cromwell, chief deputy collector of the Department of
Assessments and Collections, who gave him free access to the tens of
thousands of names preserved in his office.

                                   General Superintendent of Education.

Manila, June 27, 1904.



PREFACE.


To facilitate the use of the list, the compiler begs leave to call the
attention of his fellow-teachers to the following common sources of
error:


(1) Confusing g, j, and h. H having in the native languages the same
    value as g before e and i and as j before all vowels, is
    frequently confused with them. (Examples: Heminiano and Jiminiano
    for Geminiano; Aleho for Alejo.)
(2) Confusing b and p with v and f. (Bibencia for Vivencia; Pilemón
    for Filemón.)
(3) Confusing c, s, and z, and sometimes x. (Cenón for Zenón; Cenén
    for Senén; Zofronio for Sofronio; Felis and Feliz for Felix;
    Mácsima for Máxima.)
(4) Confusing e with i, and o with u. (Eusídio for Eusebio;
    Froctoso for Fructuoso.)
(5) Omitting or inserting initial H. (Eladio for Heladio; Henrique
    for Enrique.)
(6) Writing ll for li and ñ for ni. (Emillo for Emilio; Higiño for
    Higinio. Ll and ñ occur only once in the whole list, in Llorente
    and Iñigo.)


The above are only a few out of hundreds of examples actually found in
school registers, tax and cedula lists, etc.

Referring to the written accent in such names as Damián (o) (a), it
should be remembered that this disappears in the forms with vowel
terminations, as in these the natural tonic accent falls on the
penultimate syllable.

While the compiler hopes that the list may be of service to his
colleagues in teaching their pupils what American children learn almost
first of all—that is, to spell correctly their own names—he is at the
same time well aware that this attempt is not complete nor absolutely
correct, and he will acknowledge with sincere thanks any additions and
corrections that teachers or others may be kind enough to send him.


                                                       E. E. Schneider.

San José, Camarines, P.I., October, 1903.

large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of

ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
