The article presents strategies to attract attention to names relating to the literary characters in selected children’s books. Proper names are often part of the plot. The proper names present characters and describe them. This means that they have semantic value. Names are often the result of language games, including various derivation processes. One of the most interesting formative mechanisms are all kinds of word-formation inspired by two principles. A complete understanding of the intention is almost always contextual. Animal characters are named after anthroponyms. This is a result of a tendency, fairly typical of children’s literature, to transmit all the characters’ traits and behaviors in a way which is relatable to man.
