The main aim of the present study is to explore the names of urban sites and interpret them in a historical context. The author tries to examine as many names from the inter-war period as possible, paying particular attention to Polish names. An analysis of Polish and German names has made it possible demonstrate both the structural and the semantic-pragmatic similarity of their types. There are plenty of descriptive types, alongside association-informative names with elements of persuasion and publicity, as well as associations with political, historical, literary or religious content. The analysed urban names make it possible to reconstruct the diversity of the community living in Opole.
