Abstract:Lately, it was noticed that proper names, including place names, are similar to pronouns, adverbs and even the algebra symbol x, the criterion which links all the above being the feature “easy substitutes”, the result of their lack of significance, considering the general meaning of the term. But linguists mentioned that, in fact, proper names are not void of sense, only that theirs is different and, from a certain viewpoint, even richer than that of appellatives. According to the previous principle, that means the area of use of proper names is reduced to one signified, i.e. to one topic.
Key words:place names, significance, context, system, signified
