Sažetak In Međimurje, the Croatian area near the Hungarian border, 10% of all last names are those motivated by occupation. They are composed of idioglotic as well as aloglotic (mostly German and Hungarian) lexemes, usually orthographically and phonologically adapted. Some of these last names are based on synonymous appellatives in different languages (Sabol, Krajačić, Žnidar, Terzić). Only a third of these last names are formed with the usual last name suffixes (-¡ć, -ec. -ek, -ović, -cvić, -ica, -šić) -ić being the most frequent. In 1948 in Međimurje the most frequent last name was Kovačić.
