Summary/Abstract: Every society identifies with some animals. This situation is mostly seen in some animals such as horses, wolves and eagles in Turkish culture. These animals are known today as the symbol of power, courage and domination, just as in the old Turkish culture. However, in some cases, there are also animals used to show negative, ugly or undesirable. The best examples are Turkey Turkish dialects. While some animals are considered sacred or beneficial to the society in Turkish culture, some are worthless because they are considered harmful or ugly. This is the same for plant names produced from animal names. Study; Plant names created by the analogy of animal names were mentioned at the dialect of Ahlat District of Bitlis, which has a very old history. The study is intended to contribute to the vocabulary of Turkish.
