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 Javšanovi. At this time, the origin of this name is unknown to us. It is quite possible that Miha Flanik, the patriarch at this house is the son of Jurij Flajnik of Hrast 19.
Through the period of our studies, we have found seventeen distinct houses which originally carried the Flajnik surname. This is the fourteenth of the seventeen houses (in order of house address). The Flajnik surname is only originally found in Hrast, Perudina and Vukovci.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Miha Flajnik b. 1789. He married Barbara Pavlešič. Together, they had at least 9 children, including:
