The aim of this article is to analyse common nouns denoting people, animals and objects that occur in the Western Polissian dialects of the Ukrainian language and which are identical with personal names (first names) and/or their variations. It was found that some of these appellatives originate from the names of specific persons, gaining general popular use as such through certain (usually negative) character traits of that person. Other very popular and widely used names are given to beloved animals, while a less significant number of appellatives evolved through the process of folk etymology, when words of foreign origin were similar to real personal names.
