Summary/Abstract: The subject of this article is an analysis of chosen names of the residents and newcomers which occur in Polish local lexicon and dialects. The objective of the research is to present category of familiarity and foreignness in language and culture of the regions. The starting point was aimed to show the mechanism of creating new names based on the analysis of the etymology of chosen dialectal lexemes (for instant hanysy, gorole, cepry and the others) as well as their functioning in social awareness. A significant element of the analysis is the reference to the terms of cultural linguistics and linguistic discourse, i.e. discursive image of the world and the category of stereotypes. Material which was used in order to carry out the research comes from various sources: from chosen dialect dictionaries to amateur registry of folk lexicon such as postings or messages on discussion forums or in local press.
