概要 This paper discusses how people perceive their names in Japanese and how the act of addressing affects the perception of their names. The author examined elsewhere (2008) how address terms and names affect their identities based upon a pilot study which was conducted on college students. In this paper, the results of a research which was conducted on adults will be discussed. Although problems concerning names and address terms have been discussed by Suzuki (1973) among others, they are usually reviewed from a viewpoint of personal nouns, and proper nouns such as people's names have not been discussed with data from linguistic point of view. This paper investigates the relations between the way people are addressed and their identities. Gender difference between the attitudes toward their own names will be discussed and analyzed. In analyzing the results, the author examines how names are perceived and suggests the Gestalt effect that works when perceiving names.
