Toponymy

Toponymy is the branch of Onomastics that deals with the study of Place names (geographical features, streets, locations, etc). It traces their origin through written documentation and oral pronunciation, and suggests their correct form and use.
 
Toponymy provides information about the evolution of language and the environment, and adds insight into the people and the landscapes of today and the past. Moreover, it is an indispensable tool for tracing, rendering benefits to navigation, territorial planning, maps and atlases, hiking, communications, emergency and rescue operations, and so on.
