Resumen

VAZQUEZ LOPEZ, Verónica A.  y  KUPPRAT, Felix. Use and Transmission of Names among the Kanu’l during the Late Classic Period. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2018, vol.51, pp.75-110. ISSN 0185-2574.  https://doi.org/10.19130/iifl.ecm.2018.51.851.

Personal names are important elements of Maya hieroglyphic inscriptions of the Classic period (AD 250-900), and their analyses provide information about the social and political configuration of this time. The collective name known as “Emblem Glyph”, which served as a regal title, is of particular interest here. In this occasion, we discuss the social implications of the use of the appellative k'uhul kanu'l ajaw, the most frequent Emblem Glyph in the Maya area, during the Late Classic period. We determine the pattern of intergenerational transmission of this and other names related to the Kanu'l social unit, in order to problematize the parentage paradigms and the models of social organization that have been proposed for this period.

Palabras llave : Maya; Late Classic; Kanu’l dynasty; Calakmul; Emblem Glyph; social units.
