While most houses in Slovenia carry a household name, there are some houses which do not exist anymore and were deserted many years before anyone was aware of their existence. The household names for these houses is therefore lost as it was not documented anywhere either. Another contributing factor to this lack of a household name may also be the size of a settlement. Ogulin at its peak only had 10 houses which may have lead to a lack of “official” household names being documented in church documents. Everyone knew everyone so there was no real need to uniquely identify households. Nonetheless, even though they are not documented, household names still exist for these families today.
The dominant surname at this house is Culiberk. It is important to note that this name has also been documented as Culiberg, Ćuliberk and Čuliberk in various other documents. It is quite reasonable to assume that these are all the same last name despite the various ways that it was written over the years.
