The animal names are an unfairly neglected area of research in onomastics. Present work attempts to contribute to the few studies on this subject. The research contains the name-examination of the mammals of Budapest Zoo and based on a corpus of nearly 2000 names. I examined the zoo naming traditions through this, motivations, interesting occurrences, such as expression of the naming of togetherness, the animals with more names and gender-missings, finally I made groups with the collected name material in three main categories according to the naming motivations, origins of names and semantic aspects. The study serves as a starting point for further research in other parts of the country and also abroad.
