The names were subjected to semantic analysis according to W. Taszycki's classification. The topographic names (56 i.e.52% of all presented) predominate over the cultural and possessive ones. Morphological structure of the names presented is as follows: names from appellatives without morphological expressions: 44 (37%); two-part and multi-part: 61 (57%); created by morphological derivation: 2 (2%). Many toponyms are connected with the postglacial landscape of the terrain under discussion, some of them reflect the characteristic fauna and flora of the powiat, as well as social and economic changes that took place in the country and in the area discussed.
