This essay explores the use of proper names in Guido Petter’s novels depicting the partisan struggle. Specifically, the author’s choices in onomastics, particularly in relation to battle names, are examined by taking into account both the motivations he occasionally provides within the pages and external sources that reveal the actual nicknames employed by the men and women who fought during the Second World War in the specific regions depicted in the studied novels.
