This paper aims to explore the issue of non uniform use of geographical names, with a focus on the historical and cultural European tradition. The analysis refers to toponyms drawn from the history of four European countries: Germany, Romania, Poland and Italy. It reveals the importance of contrasting the different items used for the same toponym. Each name is not merely a variant but has a different pragmatic content, which can be best analyzed in light of the interdisciplinary approach offered by Toponymy. Toponymy allows to unveil Europe’s partially unexplored historical and Christian roots. The analysis contributes to advancing the study of toponyms from a broader vantage point. It highlights the significance of the didactic experience in introducing young generations to the European heritage of toponyms. Further studies may explore this cultural treasure across different European languages.

Abstract

This paper aims to explore the issue of non uniform use of geographical names, with a focus on the historical and cultural European tradition. The analysis refers to toponyms drawn from the history of four European countries: Germany, Romania, Poland and Italy. It reveals the importance of contrasting the different items used for the same toponym. Each name is not merely a variant but has a different pragmatic content, which can be best analyzed in light of the interdisciplinary approach offered by Toponymy. Toponymy allows to unveil Europe’s partially unexplored historical and Christian roots. The analysis contributes to advancing the study of toponyms from a broader vantage point. It highlights the significance of the didactic experience in introducing young generations to the European heritage of toponyms. Further studies may explore this cultural treasure across different European languages.
