Summary/Abstract: In this article we attempt to analyze the anthroponomy of Ineu as presented from the seventeenth century until the eighteenth, in order to offer more answers not only of a cultural nature, but also ethnical, patrimonial and social. The basis for this article are primary sources such as the register of fief conscriptions from 1605, 1746 and 1777. There are two objectives that this scientific studies attempts to accomplish. The first one encompasses a multitude of research topics: to analyze surnames in regards to their origin divided in a number of categories (For example: those derived from their place of origin, from crafts, ethnical meaning or nicknames). The second objective refers to the creation of statistical evaluations regarding the spread of surnames originating in the Old Testament, the New Testament, divinity or from saints’ names from the thirteenth until the eighteenth century. After the statistical review and interpretation process we decided to create charts and graphics through which we can show the influence of both the Western and Eastern Church upon the naming tradition of Ineu.
