still new to this list but do find it fascinating...Mac's point...

seems well taken...I was working on a project this spring with a number of languages that I'm not familiar with...remember looking at MARC records in Finland and the Netherlands to help understand the MARC records I had created from another metadata format...the focus was 245 titles both parallel and multiple...since I know 245 subfields, my questions were easily answered..

By "names" do you mean relationship terms in $e?  Or do you mean the
name of the person, family, or corporate body in $a?  The context
would seem to suggest you mean relationship terms.  Wouldn't be be
less confusing to call them that?

I do like talking in unambiguous MARC field and subfield codes!  The
ambiguity of language, and reuse of terms with new meanings, creates
roblems.
