Description The contribution deals with two topics: 1) The first topic, is a more general one, concerns the question whether geographical names in borderline regions can be referred to as “cultural heritage”, if it is mostly toponymy that originated after the Wold War II, i.e. toponymy lacking continuity common in continually settled areas. How do experts view this fact? And how do the local people themselves view the toponymy of their homes – the locals, who or whose ancestors came to such regions after the Wold War II? 2) The other topic deals with one particular phenomenon, namely with an interesting and rather unique way of using toponyms – anoikonyms, respectively – in a terminology liked with wine-growing, namely in names of vineyard routes. They are quite strongly fixed to the official sphere, propagation and marketing playing a significant role there.
