Summary/Abstract: In this study I realized an esoteric interpretation of the character names in Forbidden Forest by Mircea Eliade. I identified some hidden cabalistic erotica, even though some researchers believe that Romanian religion history man was not interested in Kabbalah. In any literary work, the character names have a higher or lower importance, both in the epic construction and in the personal shaping of the characters. Mircea Eliade was a hermeneutic researcher fascinated by the mystery and he couldn`t miss the chance to encode a mystery in the names inviting the reader to discover it. Eliade`s erotica isn`t combed, in the proper sense of the term, but initiatory, revealing and transcendent.
