The paper presents an extensive quantitative phonotactic analysis of a corpus of 15,051 Czech oikonyms. The results are confronted with the appellative vocabulary represented by a corpus of 45,991 words from the dictionary Slovník spisovné češtiny (2003). Oikonyms contain phoneme combinations not attested elsewhere, in particular consonantal combinations, all of which are discussed in detail. An analysis of the overall structure of the oikonyms and appellatives is also offered, showing that Czech prefers words beginning with a single consonant, ending in a vowel and containing one medial two-consonant combination. Moreover, it prefers three-syllable words and words with all syllables occupied by short vowels. Except for the unattested phoneme combinations, the phonological structure of the oikonyms is not much different from that of the appellative words.
