Summary/Abstract: This paper aims at analysing the common nouns hiding underthe proper nouns with instructive and at the same time pleasantcomments for each example. We have taken into considerationcommon nouns which sometimes have a complex andinteresting story and we also defined each of them. Thus, everycommon noun borrowed from the world’s patrimony lives asecond life through common nouns. We also aim at studyingnames of cities, people, and countries, together with those ofmythological characters whose reputation went beyond genders,thus passing into the common language.
