The subject of linguistic analysis are nicknames that occurred in dialogues of students of high schools in Krakow in the years 1996-2002. The author considers the language of these texts to be slang utterances while students themselves refer to them using terms żargon/cant, gryps/letters smuggled through to or from prison, ksywa/a nickname. From the point of view of the creator of an individual nickname semantic motivation is important. The motivation often refers to a native, environmental language, to a regional dialect or to a feature of a person who is characterized by a new word and then identified (named) by this new proper noun. From the receiver’s point of view it is important to accept the nickname by the environment which not always knows the motivation of the origin of a nickname like Żeniuch, Farmaceutka, Nafciara. There are also collective nicknames, e.g. Górale, Skoczkowie, Kapitolczycy.
