Abstract:

The article explores the possibility (but also the need) to analyze the syntactic functions of the components of the anthroponymic composite in the Bulgarian name system. This study does not focus so much on pseudonyms and nicknames since their function of appositives to the formal anthroponym has long been studied and is considered a priori accepted. The emphasis is primarily on surnames (father’s names and family names). They have not yet received due attention in terms of their syntactic potential, which certainly goes beyond their attributive characteristics. The article also proposes some significant terminological clarifications in regard to the terms that are traditionally used to designate the components of the anthroponymic composite in Bulgarian language.
