    Aim: Work on the study of geographical names (toponyms) which include natural and anthropogenic objects is relevant to the present. Toponymy is a relatively young science that studies geographical names, their origin, patterns and conditions of formation, semantic content, grammatical form, pronunciation, and transmission from one language to another. Toponymy stands at the intersection of such sciences as geography, history, architecture, linguistics, etc. With the help of toponyms, it is possible to trace the history of the development of the territory, to understand what alien and indigenous people inhabited a region, and also to reveal the landscape features of the studied area. Materials and Method: A total of 882 toponyms in the territory of Pre-Volga Region of the Republic of Tatarstan which included the names of settlements (553), natural sites such as rivers, lakes, springs (158), terrain forms, geology, and flora and fauna (171) have been studied in this work. The
    formation of geographical names in this territory is associated with the history of its settlement, ethnographic features, and the diversity of natural conditions. Result and Discussion: Studies have shown to us that the old names of geographical objects were either completely replaced by Russian names, or moved into a group of mixed ones. The toponyms of natural objects initially closely associated with the components of nature, nowadays, continue to bear the names of pre-existing flora, fauna, or water objects on anthropogenically changed territories. Conclusion: The information obtained in the course of work on the toponyms of the Pre-Volga Region of the Republic of Tatarstan is of great importance for paleogeographers and historians and can be widely used in ecology and geography and local lore studies.
