Summary/Abstract: This paper explores the semantics of possible worlds where the rules for the trans-world identification of objects are considered. Different logical theories on the meaning and reference of the name will be considered in the context of the semantics of the possible worlds. The purpose of this study is to show whether the meaning of a name is a criteria for trans-world identification. If the answer to this question is positive, it would mean that the category meaning is objective.In order to answer this question, some philosophical theories on how a definition is formed and how intent and extension are understood will be considered. The aim is to explain how we understand the meaning of the terms objectively, which could serve as a criteria for trans-world identification of objects.
