Abstract: The vast majority of place names are based, from a lexical-grammatical point of view, on nouns that denote things, beings, phenomena of nature, abstract notions. Less numerous than nouns, the adjectives have the ability to exploit to a much greater extent the imagination and creativity of those who observe and name the objects of the surrounding geographical environment and have a much more expressive character. In the pages of this article, we stopped at the analysis of a single adjective that has aroused, over time, ample discussion: frumos – beautiful. The structure of the names in the composition it is found, their frequency, lexical synonyms of the qualifier present in the toponymy are some of the directions of analysis.
