The following list of Carpatho-Rusyn villages is based on the 1910 Hungarian census for the Presov Region and Subcarpathian Rus'; that is, villages located within what is today parts of Slovakia, Ukraine and Romania. The inhabitants of these villages had responded that their "mother tongue" (native language) was Rusyn. Data for the Lemko region, that is, villages located in what is today SE Poland, are based on the 1921 Polish census.

Each entry in this list includes the names of:

The name of the village in the main entry is given according to the official language of the country where it is presently located - that is, Polish for villages in the Lemko Region of Poland; Romanian in Romania; Serbo-Croatian in Croatia and Yugoslavia; Slovak in the Presov Region of Slovakia; Ukrainian in Subcarpathian Rus'.

The main entry is followed by name variants including Pre-1918 Hungarian names for villages south of the Carpathians; old Rusyn names that have later been altered; and the semi-official Ukrainian names for villages in the Presov Region, Romania, and the Lemko Region.

In order for a village to be included in this list - at least 50% of the inhabitants of the villages had to have claimed Rusyn as their mother tongue. In fact, most of the villages in this list had 70% or greater Rusyn-speaking inhabitants according to the 1910 Hungarian and 1921 Polish censuses.

There were during the first decades of the 20th century a total of 1,022 Carpatho-Rusyn villages. Based on present day boundaries, these villages are located:

It should also be pointed out that many Carpatho-Rusyns also lived in small town and cities just beyond the compact Rusyn ethnolinguistic boundaries. In these places Rusyns generally comprised only a small percentage of the inhabitants and for that reason - these villages do not appear on the list.

The following codes after the village name denote which language the various spellings come from.
[H]  = Hungarian spelling
[P]  = Polish Spelling
[Ro] = Romanian Spelling
[Ru] = Rusyn Spelling
[Sc] = Serbo-Croatian Spelling
