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 carries the name of Skrajini. At this time, the exact origin of this name is unknown to us.
Through the period of our studies, we have found four distinct houses which originally carried the Špehar surname in Perudina. This is the first of the four houses (in order of house address). The Špehar surname is predominantly found in Damelj, Kot and Perudina.
There are still some details that are unclear about who the original patriarch was and for that reason, the first generation will be omitted until more conclusive information is obtained.
