Summary/Abstract: In this paper the author deals with some topics of Albanian geography of different provinces and regions: Fishta, Guci, Ljarje, Mirditë, Obri, Prishtinë, Pukë, Rinas, Rrjoll, Shekullar, Shestan, Shtoj, Tropojë, Valdanos, Valbonë, Vuthaj, which differently from explan-ations of other authors on the basis of appellatives, he offers new etymological findings from the stock of individual names. In dealing with this problem, always complex, the author notices that there have often happened deviations; there have been followed (traced) wrong paths, not only by linguistic dilettantes with desire to create “patriotic” etymologising, but also by well-known scholars.
