The research has been done into the onym space of the novel by J. Joyce “Ulysses”. The article is aimed at analyzing the semantics of poetonyms of the novel through hermeneutic interpretation as a complex approach based on detection and analysis of the semantics of proper units which content structure contains semes and connothemes explicated at the linguistic, sociolinguistic, ethnically-related historical and philological levels of interpretation of the multiple meanings embedded in the name by the author. Such a multi-level approach will allow us to determine the specifics of the poetics of the onyms of J. Joyce. The system analysis method based on the ratio of the part and the whole in the text (including the methodology of the hermeneutic circle) has been primarily used to reach the goals set in the research; methods of comparative, component, contextual analysis alongside the descriptive method were also used. A combination of interpretation techniques used in the research allows us to establish polysemantic essence in the majority of the PN of the novel formed taking into account phonetic, semantic, historical, allusive, etc. connections with the space of the text of “Ulysses”, the general text that includes all the works preceding “Ulysses” (“Dubliners”, “Hero Stephen”, “Portrait of the artist in his Youth”), as well as the biography of the writer, and with the space of a broad historical and cultural context (intertext).
