Abstract

This article examines habit, memory, and the persistence of Socialist-era street names in postsocialist Bucharest, Romania. To do so, it explores the importance of habit within everyday practices as an explanation, drawing on an understanding of habit derived from sociocognitive psychology. It suggests that this explanation, rather than popular contestation, has more to offer in understanding the persistence of the toponym Piaţa Moghioroş. It thus highlights the importance of considering how the “users” of place names react to the changes of such names and create their own meanings in relation to them in ways unintended by elites
