In the Czech Republic, the re-evaluation of unofficial forms of names (hypocoristics) into independent, basic, standard forms is realised on the basis of sociolinguistic surveys (carried out in 1970’s, 1990’s and in 2012). The surveys are stimulated by the impulses from the public claiming that some hypocoristics (e.g. Ondráš, Jarek, Amálka) lost their emotional, unofficial symptoms and are regarded as neutral forms. If these forms are linguistically re- -evaluated into independent, basic ones on the basis of the results of the survey, they are found suitable for the official registration of Czech citizens according to the Czech registry law.
