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 Kucani. Kuca or Kuća (Bosnian) translates to house. It is not unreasonable to conclude that this may refer to the occupation of the patriarch of the house when it was named.
This house is documented as being vacant when Johan Benec (Markičov) moved in with his wife Helena Tomec. At this time, there is no evidence suggesting what family lived here before them.
