In the paper on a number of examples from onomastic literature and other sources the author shows the usage of the term osobno ime (personal name) and its different meanings (onym, individual anthroponym, official anthroponymic formula). The author sees the main reason for this diversity in Croatian onomastics in the fact that a Croatian onomastic terminological manual doesn’t exist. As polysemy is unwelcome in all terminologies, and thus also in onomastic terminology, the author suggests clear defining of the meaning and place of the term personal name.

personal name; anthroponymy; Croatian onomastic terminological dictionary
