LIN Huayang;WANG Bin;CHEN Qingqing;School of Geographical Sciences,Fujian Normal University;  
A database was created for 95 place names of administrative regions in Fujian province based on their naming patterns,the earliest time when the names appeared,their retention time and so on,then a statistical analysis and classification to reflect the regional geographical feature and historical humanistic phenomena of place name landscape was conducted to provide references for the study of the place names. The results show that more than half of existing place names of administrative regions had their names in the Song Dynasty and even before the Song Dynasty. The names of the administrative regions change in different periods and present a spatial characteristic corresponding to Fujian geographical development sequence. They were mostly named after the features of natural geographical entities,while the geographical names of political areas in the early days of the Tang Dynasty drew a little noticeable on the social and cultural issues. In addition,the formation of geographical names in Fujian's administrative region today is mainly affected by natural environmental factors,population migration,regional development and institutional changes in the state administrative regions. The results provide a reference for the study and management of geographical names,the naming and inheritance and protection of cultural heritage of historic places in Fujian.
