According to contemporary Polish law, naming and name changing issues are mainly regulated by two legal acts: 'Vital Records Law' and 'Given Names and Surnames Changes Act'. These two documents indicate the procedure of giving and changing names. The first one refers to names which should not be given, whereas the second one talks about cases in which given names can be changed. The article presents procedural issues connected with giving and changing names. In the part devoted to giving names, the authoress discusses, among other things, the mode of given names registration, and issues connected with giving more than two names, humiliating names, names in the diminutive form, names which make it impossible to distinguish the sex of a child or foreign names. The second part of the article introduces the problem of changing names in doubt-raising situations. The sample material analyzed in the article consists of administrative courts statements interpreted from the point of view of an onomast linguist.
