The finding that intuitions about the reference of proper names vary cross-culturally (Machery et al.Cognition92: 1-12.2004) was one of the early milestones in experimental philosophy. Many follow-up studies investigated the scope and magnitude of such cross-cultural effects, but our paper provides the first systematic meta-analysis of studies replicating (Machery et al.Cognition92: 1-12.2004). In the light of our results, we assess the existence and significance of cross-cultural effects for intuitions about the reference of proper names.
