Summary/Abstract: Despite the fact that multi-motivation of surnames is a common phenomenon accounted for in both theoretical discussions and examination of specific collections of anthroponyms, it still remains underestimated and pushed into the margin of onomastic discussions. This article is an analysis of the reasons for multi-motivation of surnames as a phenomenon underlying not so much the description units but the description itself and resulting, on the one hand, from the ignorance of researchers about the mechanism of forming particular surnames, and on the other hand, from increasingly more detailed research on the mechanisms of forming surnames in general and transferring it to individual facts. The article also demonstrates various approaches to multi-motivation as well as its relation to structural research. One of the objectives of the study is to present a classificatory proposition, based on multi-motivation of surnames, which permits separating units with one motivation and with several motivational possibilities.
