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 Medvedovi. based on the original owners of the house. Given that this house name corresponds to the surname of the residents of the house, it is not unrealistic to believe that this may have been the original Medved family in Podklanec.
