Summary/Abstract: In this article the results of the research of the coastal toponymy of Lovran region are being presented, which has so far received extremely modest attention in scientific literature.The basic aim is to complete the list of coastal toponyms along the entire coastal line of Lovran region, i.e. all three cadastral districts that descend from the Učka slopes to the sea (districts Oprić, Lovran, and Tuliševica). The toponyms have been collected from local informants who were (and still are) connected to the sea and coastal line of this area with their life and work. Particular attention has been paid to the motivation of some toponyms that have a foothold in some of the customs, events or happenings still alive today in the discourse of the local population, primarily fishermen and other people connected to the sea.
