In this paper, I will deal with the relevance that the names of the main characters have in the novel 'Tonio Kröger' by Thomas Mann. Therefore, I will show (1) the functional (and symbolic or metaphorical) value of these names in the story, and (2) the relationships that can be established between them from both a "formal" and a "semantic" viewpoint.
