Keywords:proper names, realism, descriptive theory of proper names

The aim of this essay is to show that the analysis of proper names in terms of the descriptive theory leads to the blurring of the difference between ordinary and fictive proper names. Since, I believe, the distinction is a valid one, the descriptive theory cannot be applied generally to all proper names.
