Currently, there are many scientific studies devoted to the consideration of the scientific, theoretical and organizational problems of the development of new types (kinds) of forensic examinations, the solution of which is of great importance both from the point of view of the formation of the general theory of forensic examination and expert practice. Despite the different vectors and often ambiguity of scientific views on the development of new classes, types, and kinds of forensic examinations, they are designed to consolidate existing knowledge. In addition to the theoretical aspect of the problem, there is also a purely practical focus of this issue, associated with the precise definition of a specific type and kind of forensic examination in order to avoid appointment errors; outlining the strict boundaries of the expert’s professional knowledge and organizing their activities; and, ultimately, the effective use of the examination results in legal proceedings. Linguistic expertise is one of the procedural forms of using special knowledge, relevant from the point of view of criminal, civil, and administrative proceedings. In the last decade, a new kind of forensic linguistic expertise, naming, has been formed in expert practice. The developing research on individualizing naming conventions is predominantly the sphere of practical orientation, which, in turn, dictates the need for a scientific and theoretical substantiation of the purpose and conduct of naming expertise, since in the new, emerging kind of linguistic expertise, everything turns out to be ambiguous. In the formation and development of a new kind of expertise, the primary task is to outline the strict boundaries of expert competencies in order to solve problems related to the specifics of the objects of research, it is important to systematize and clarify the conceptual apparatus, methodological support, assignment and conduct issues. Therefore, the differentiation of naming expertise is accompanied by a number of complex problems, systematization and the search for solutions to which this article is devoted to.
