The article is based on the analysis of Old East Slavic literary monuments of the XI–XIII centuries. The research focuses on the fragment «unofficial anthroponyms» of the early East Slavic world view. It is the first time that the functional-semantic peculiarities of unofficial anthroponyms Добрыня Долгыи, Иванко Степановичь, Матѣи Шибутовичь come under scholarly scrutiny. These anthroponymic units are in the Radzivill, the Suzdal', the Nikon chronicles. Linguistic study of unofficial anthroponyms is carried out taking into account extralinguistic factors with the use of data of history and archeology. It is proved that there is a clear pattern in using of these names in the old text. The wordformation features of these anthroponyms indicate that the order of following the names in the chronicle is determined by the social status of the named persons. A component of «significance» in the structure of the lexical meaning of anthroponyms was reconstructed. Connotative and denotative component that are included in the semantic content of unofficial anthroponyms are revealed. The motive for naming (Долгыи and Шибутовичь) is related to the category of ethical antinorm. Significance of each of the names contains the ethnocultural denotative components that clarify the social status of a person, indicate its religious orientation, territorial affiliation. The author believes that named persons representative the Rostov (but not Suzdal') nobility of the second half of the XII century. As a result of the analysis it is established that these persons did not take direct part in the Lypytska battle in 1177, but only watched the course of the battle. It was shown that the name Шибутовичь originated in the East Slavic area, and the boyar is talking about was from the Galician lands. Unofficial anthroponyms Долгыи і Шибутовичь in the second half of the XII century had a living inner form. Anthroponymic units Долгыи, Иванко, Степанковичь, Шибутовичь perform a moral evaluation function. The causes of appearance in chronicles of the XV–XVI centuries truncated forms Шибутовъ, Бутовъ and the replacement of form Матѣи on Матѳѣи are revealed.
