Summary/Abstract: The article Womens {Names in the Universal Dictionary of Polish} (2003) is based on the material from two dictionaries: {Słownik języka polskiego (the Dictionary of Polish)} edited by Mieczysław Szymczak (SJP3, 1995) and {Uniwersalny słownik języka polskiego (the Universal Dictionary of Polish)} edited by Stanisław Dubisz (USJP). It concentrates on several questions concerning the feminine nomenclature. The core problems presented are: what new names were introduced in USJP, from which names of masculine gender feminine names cannot be derived and if there are any feminine names unnoted by USJP that are used in common language.
