Summary/Abstract: Vučevo is a village situated in the lower basin of the Piva, on the left bank of the river and in the foot of the mountain Vučevo that served to its inhabitants as their katun, i.e. summer pasture with seasonal dwellings for shepherds. After the liberation of the region from the Ottoman Empire by the Primcipality of Montenegro the village was repopulated by settlers from the adjacent highlands (Pivska planina), who supposedly transplanted there a number of microtoponyms from their earlier home. The toponomastic material collected by the author in 2017 is presented here alphabetically; for each name, the accentological information is provided; in many instances, the definition of the object is accompanied by a short comment on its appearance or history.
