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 Juničari. At this time, the origin of this name is unknown to us. Based on the root of the name, Juničar, it would be reasonable to assume that the patriarch of this house once raised cows for slaughter.
Through the period of our studies, we have found seventeen distinct houses which originally carried the Flajnik surname. This is the thirteenth of the seventeen houses (in order of house address). The Flajnik surname is only originally found in Hrast, Perudina and Vukovci.
