Abstract. The article is devoted to the study of the originality of literary anthroponyms in the works of Boris Ukachin. This problem has been little studied and requires further research. The relevance of the research is determined by the need to interpret the artistic anthroponymicon in order to comprehend the deep meaning of the text. The anthroponymic vocabulary of Boris Ukachin’s artistic works has a significant potential for understanding the ways of the individual author’s organization of the artistic space and the system of subtext connections. Therefore, the study of the anthroponymy of the author’s works makes it possible to expand and streamline information about the traditional and new in the writer’s artistic heritage.

Literary anthroponyms serve as a means of designating characters, isolating and distinguishing them, concretizing and generalizing. The anthroponymic space of Boris Ukachin’s works is extraordinarily rich, there are names in it that reflect the customs, traditions and worldview of the Altai people, which are formed by different ways of word formation. The name and her appearance largely determine the artistic thought of the author, it is closely related to the plot, portrait, landscape of Boris Ukachin’s works. Since people call an object by their personal names, they do not attribute any properties to it, however, in a literary text, thanks to anthroponyms, the writer hides a certain meaning that reflects the character of the hero. It is thanks to proper names that the reader becomes clear which character is in front of him. Anthroponymic semantics manifests itself especially vividly and profoundly in the title of the stories.

According to the author, anthroponyms are widely and variously represented in the work of B. Ukachin. Many of them are divided by lexical and semantic characteristics into descriptive names, wish names and names that give some information about a person’s personality.

Keywords: nthroponym; name; character; naming; word formation; customs; rituals
