Pragmatonyms constitute a specific class of one of three onymic groups, chrematonyms. These are defined as proper names of serially produced products, closely connected with human productive activity. Analysis of extra-linguistic aspects of the onymic corpus of 1250 pragmatonyms is the pivotal objective of the article. The attention is paid to the creation of motivational patterns. Theoretical-methodological ground is based upon the tradition of Czech and Slovak onomastic school accentuating model theory applied in anthroponymy and toponymy. Motivation models render distinct or substantive motivation sign of the denominator towards the denominated object. The most frequent motivation model is the motivation model C (attribute, characteristic feature of the product), followed by B (labelling the specific product type directly) and motivation model A (direct and indirect geographical adherence of the product towards its originator). Motivation model D which indicates possessive relation is the least frequent. The existence of motivation model X has also been proved through research. It covers the pragmatonyms with equivocal motivation sign.
