While every house in Slovenia has a civic address, many houses also carry a household name. These names are how other people typically referred to that family. This house originally carried the name of Lukaničevi. At this time, the origin of this name is unknown to us but it is feasible to conclude that the patriarch at this house was once a Luka or Luke.
Through the period of our studies, we have found seventeen distinct houses which originally carried the Flajnik surname. This is the tenth of the seventeen houses (in order of house address). The Flajnik surname is only originally found in Hrast and Perudina.
