dc.description.abstractThe most striking feature of an onomastic study of the Rimas, Gustavo Adolfo Becquer's major poetic creation, is the extreme paucity of given names.1 Only four such names appear in all of the Rimas (Ofelia, Minerva, Lazaro, Dante), but even these few must be qualified for the purpose of this study. They are not properly given names, actually identifying characters or people addressed by the poet in his lyrics. All four have connotative and/or metaphorical functions as employed in their respective poems.2 In point of fact, then, there are no personal names at all uttered in the seventy-nine poems that constitute this significant body of verse.
