Abstract

This research looks at the semantics of the concept desired by the Dayak Kenyah community in Pampang Village. The concept is seen through the meaning of the name given to his child. To collect data about the names of the Dayak Kenyah people, an observation method was used with the distribution of questionnaires to elementary and high school students in Pampang Village. The data collected was selected by purposive sampling to achieve the results of the study. The data is then analyzed descriptively qualitatively through the theory of the triangles of Odgen and Richard’s meanings. Based on the results of the analysis, found eight backgrounds in naming the Dayak Kenyah community, namely (1) naming based on names based on idol figures, (2) naming based on the name of grandfather / grandmother, (3) naming based on the moment of birth, (4) giving names based on birth order, (5) naming based on regional origin and time of birth, (6) naming based on the natural surroundings, (7) naming based on parents ‘preferences, (8) naming based on parents’ expectations.There are five motivations in choosing the name of the Dayak Kenyah community, namely (1) for success, (2) for welfare, (3) for safety, (4) for health, and (5) for peace / preservation. In general, there are five hopes and ideals desired by the Dayak Kenyah community, namely (1) wanting to be an artist, (2) wanting to be saved, (3) wanting to repeat the success/greatness of the family, and (5) wanting to capture certain moments.
