Abstract

The paper deals with identity through city toponyms. Changes indicate the trends, goals and aspirations of society. The study is conducted in the historical cores of eight Central European cities: Graz, Kraków, Olomouc, Prague, Maribor, Zagreb, Zadar and Mostar. Three time cross-sections are examined: 1935, 1985 and 2009. Finally, regarding the structure of toponyms, it is concluded that statehood, culture-creators and artists and religion are overall the three most emphased origins of toponyms. Yet, in some cities other types of toponyms derived from localities, crafts and trades, entrepreneurs are more dominant.
