FERES-CARNEIRO, Terezinha; MACHADO, Rebeca Nonato; MELLO, Renata  e  MAGALHAES, Andrea Seixas. Nomination practices in contemporaneous family relations. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.1, pp. 4-19. ISSN 1677-2970.

This paper is part of a broader investigation on the perception of parents and children towards parenthood, within the various contemporaneous family structures. We conducted semi-structured interviews with 132 members of heterosexual and homosexual-parent families, belonging to the middle-class of Rio de Janeiro, married, divorced, remarried, and single-parent. The study involved 41 mothers, 41 fathers, 26 young children, and 24 teenage children. We analyzed the interviews using the content analysis method and discussed them using reviewed literature. During the broader investigation, we identified five categories of analysis emerging from the narratives: nomination; conflicts, power, limits and expectations; gender roles; educational project; and parenthood. In this paper, which aims to investigate naming practices among contemporaneous family relations, we discussed the nomination category. The attribution of specific names, by parents and children, to family members, express the need for recognition and differentiation of family places and functions. We concluded that nomination practices point to the respect for traditions rather than the search for creation, despite major transformations of family bonds, which are governed by the appreciation of socio-affective connections.

Palavras-chave : family relations; contemporaneity; parenthood; nomination; socio-affective bond.
