The paper presents a survey of the study of animal names in West Slavic languages. Within the scope of the survey were the onomastic works from Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The author of the paper has distinguished four main areas of animal names study: the study of animal names in rural areas, of animal names in literature, of animal names in zoos, and of animal names in cities; and has analyzed all of them. The survey revealed that there is a significant disproportion in the number of works published on animal names in the three countries. The topic has been investigated most thoroughly by Polish linguists, and a number of valuable papers has been published in Slovakia. The most popular area of the study has been the study of animal names in rural areas.
