Onomatology is considered one of the well-studied areas in Bashkir linguistics. However, there are a number of issues requiring specification and refinement. Thus, today there is no consideration and study in monographic sense for such categories of Bashkir onomatology as cosmonyms, zoonyms, mythonyms, phytonyms, urbanonyms, and nicknames. The role of onomastic units in the creation of the Bashkir language picture of the world is not defined either. This paper, because of an integrated approach to the study of onomastic space of the Bashkir language, revealed general and specific features of onomastic units of the above categories. In particular, lexical and conducted genetic analysis and derivation of Bashkir personal names and nicknames; given the highest priority of zoonymic vocabulary; the paper examines lexical-semantic features of phytonyms; it suggests lexical-semantic description of urbanonyms; and studies features of the trans-onymization process in the onomastic system of the Bashkir language.
