This paper analyses the semantics of the proper noun in Alonso de Castillo Solórzano’s La garduña de Sevilla. It has demonstrated that the choice of the anthroponyms the characters disguise themselves with is not accidental. The study of the onomastic system developed by this writer allows us to realize that proper nouns are not mere identifiers of the characters. Instead, they convey meanings thanks to their sociocultural and historical dimension.
