The paper will analyze some linguistic, primarily onomastic evidence of still existent
or extinct crafts and occupations within the framework of the former social structure.
Many onetime crafts became extinct in the course of time, but traces of their former diffusion
and importance can be reconstructed from their onomastic, primarily, anthroponomastic
reflections. Similar surnames motivated by occupation can be found all across
Europe. Some surname statistics in various European countries are given in the paper.
