Summary/Abstract: The aim of this research is to realize the contribution of onomastic research of the Bosnian language, in domain of chrematonyms, and to analyze the names of Bosnian artifacts: roads, tunnels, companies, historical and commercial buildings, with special reference to the appointment of the tunnel. The paper presents a proposal to extract categories of chrematonyms - names of the tunnel, based on their semantics: the hills and peaks, the composition and appearance of soil, fitonyms, zoomyms, metaphorical and metonymic titles, chrematonyms that express human activities and chrematonyms to appoint people in a particular area.
