    The paper deals with various kinds of emotional expressivity of Czech toponyms, with respect to the specific character of proper names, whose functions and nature of meaning are distinct from common nouns. The analysed data is formed by Czech settlement names (mostly names of village parts) and especially by names of non-settlement places (mainly field names) from the territory of Bohemia. Emotionality, whose role in the individual naming act is studied, is given by the expressive character of the lexical basis, the emotional symptom of the means of name formation, or by the specific character of the naming act. Expressing the individual emotions is analysed: negative emotions strongly prevail; expressing positive emotions is rather rare in toponyms. Emotionality given by lexical elements is often connected with metaphor. Some attention is devoted also to the development of emotional symptoms of toponyms, their loss (including the suppression of negative emotionality, realised by deliberate changes of toponyms) as well as emotionality attributed to some names subsequently, on the basis of folk etymology.
