ON MOTIVATION BY GIVEN NAMES IN FOLK ETYMOLOGIES OF POLISH TOPONYMS This article presents, on the basis of selected examples, various types of folk etymologies of Polish toponyms, for which folk reinterpeters indicate given names as nominational bases, both those functioning in contemporary or ancient usage (for example, Adam, Ewa, Celina; Chrzan) as well as those created especially for the needs of the given pseudoetymology (for example, Rzyn, Cina). Types of folk etymologies are distinguished in view of the degree of variance of their results with the results of scholarly etymologies deriving toponyms from bases belonging to another morphological nest than their actual basic expression (for instance, Kościerzyna, Grajewo, Warszawa), through motivations of toponyms by other forms of those same given names (for example, Szczepankowo, Lechlin), deriving toponyms through pseudoetymology from those same names as the scholarly etymologies, but having a different semantic interpretation (for example, Bronowo, Adamowo).
