The article is an attempt at reconstructing a world-view on the basis of the proper names contained in the novels of Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz (Witkacy) 'Pozegnanie jesieni' (Farewell to Autumn), '622 upadki Bunga' (The 622 Downfalls of Bungo), 'Nienasycenie' (Insatiability), 'Jedyne wyjscie' (The Only Way Out). Analyzing onyms used by Witkacy in his prosaistic composition and comparing them with his outlook on life produces a cohesive vision of the world. Proper names in Witkacy's novels are an expression of the author's relationship with the reality surrounding him, and are full of irony, burlesque, and absurdity. They comprise a unique material with which the artist plays and with the help of which he plays a game with the reader.
