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 Dolnji Bertovi. At this time, the exact origin of this name is unknown to us. It was later changed to Flajniki as to make reference to the surname of the residents of the house at the time. It is very possible that this was originally a Pavlešič household which was converted to a Flajnik surname at the start of the period where the family books were written
Through the period of our studies, we have found six distinct houses which originally carried the Flajnik surname in Perudina. This is the fifth of the six houses (in order of house address). The Flajnik surname is only originally found in Hrast, Perudina and Vukovci.
