The antroponymical elements like bay, bek, bergen, biybi, biyke, gul, jan, zada, murat, nazar, niyaz , take part in the structure of the karakalpak names. In this article these components of antropotoponyms were learned and given antropotoponyms Chimbay region, in which structure there are elements bаy, bek, bergen, biybi, gul, nazar, niyaz, murat, khan .
