Abstract. In recent decades the Internet has greatly expanded boundaries of reality having created a unique virtual world with its social groups and communities. Each of the Internet users being a part of this or that community on the Internet must have his/her own identifier, which distinguishes him/her from others and at the same time helps to express himself/herself in virtual space. As a result there appears a new linguistic phenomenon - the nickname - used for communication on the Internet. This paper focuses on the process of nicknames formation on the Internet. The aims of our research are the study and classification of linguistic means used for creating this or that nickname for the Internet communication.
Key words and phrases: имена собственные, никнейм, аватар, ники-антропонимы, ники-топонимы, ники-зоонимы, proper names, nickname, avatar, nicknames-anthroponyms, nicknames-toponyms, nicknames-zoonyms
