Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article deals with Baltic place-names of the Kaliningrad region recorded in 16-19th centuries. These place-names are less well known by comparison with place-names recorded from 13th century until the beginning of 16th century. The most famous researcher of Prussian place-names Georg Geruli set a strict chronological limit for his own list of place-names -1525. In his opinion, this was the time when German forms of pronunciation of Prussian place-names became stabilised, therefore the process of Germanization of Prussian place-names was completed. According to Georg Geruli place-names collected from 16-19th century documents have little importance to the research of Prussian place-names. On repeated occasions the author of this article has suggested that this boundary ought to be crossed, because even after 1525 both manuscript and printed historical sources contain quite a few Prussian or Baltic place-names of former East Prussia which significantly add to our knowledge of Prussian proper names. This article focuses on Prussian or Baltic place- names which were not analyzed by Georg Geruli. After the Second World War these place-names were replaced by Russian ones with no regard to their old forms. [From the publication]
