The paper offers an argument against Kripke's assertion, that it is valid for all names of natural species, that they have no connotations. The argumentation has its roots in the semantic conception of S. Kripke as articulated in his 'Naming and necessity' i.e. it is an 'argument from inside' the conception itself. The argument consists of two parts: (a) setting the conditions under which the name of a natural species has a connotation; (b) constructing a situation, in which these conditions are fulfilled.
