Abstract: Explicit consideration of the concept of island toponymy is scant. Following a summary of recent island toponymic experiences on Pitcairn Island, this introduction reviews how the seven papers in this thematic section of ISJ offer methodological and theoretical groundwork towards establishing island toponymy as a subfield of research in its own right both within island studies and toponymy more generally. The creative aspects and eclectic nature of investigating island toponymies is proposed as a possible means of further enquiry.
