The article describes a contribution of the Kraków linguists (represented by scientists from Jagiellonian University and Polish Academy of Sciences - Onomastic Department, later Anthroponimic Department in the Institute of Polish Language PAN ) to the studies on personal names. The authoress emphasises the achievements of professor W. Taszycki, the initiator of onomastic studies, and of his co-workers, students and assistants. She also emphasises importance of the work of the Onomastic Department on the 'Dictionary of Old Polish Names' (ed. W. Taszycki 1965-1987) and on the 'Etymological and Derivational Dictionary of Old Polish Names' (ed. A. Cieslikowa, M. Malec, K. Rymut 1995-2001). She shows a specific character of the category of personal names comparing to other names such as nicknames, family names and pseudonyms.
