Proper name in literary work is not the same as in factual reality. Proper name in literary work is not only indexical, but also implicating to messages sent by an author. Objectively viewed, the message is known by appropriation of proper name linguistically, in characterization, and in plot. Focusing on unity of form and content, this research takes structural-semiotics theory as an approach of descriptive-qualitative research method. Analytically it is found that proper name has appropriate meaning linguistically, in characterization, and in plot. It is proved that proper name functions not only indexical but also as a symbol and an icon.
