Sažetak

The paper focuses on the morphosyntactic properties of female names and the ways in which
female first names and surnames are used, as well as on adjectives derived from them in the
Croatian language. The collected examples indicate that independent use of female surnames,
compared to the independent use of male surnames, demonstrates a great degree of variability
because their use has still not been standardized. Due to the fact that female surnames are highly
marked when compared to the majority of nouns that can undergo declension, female surnames
are frequently modified by word formation procedures, even though this is in stark contrast with
the norm. Female surnames that can undergo declension are also used in highly formal contexts
due to pragmatic and morphosyntactic reasons.
