Within the present paper we put forward to analyse, based on the current toponymy from the southern part of the country, the way the relationship of possession was expressed in time, not taking into account the means to acquire an asset (in this case estate) – succession, sale, purchase etc. We will see that within the old customary law a “well-known” formula existed, merged from joining two terms: the word share (substituting, lexically, the object concerned) and the possessor. Regarding the latter, it turns out to be a complex “partner”, which provides more lines of research: the quality of name, structure, their frequency etc., issues that will be debated throughout the paper.
