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 Pecoji. It may have been called this name after the previous inhabitants of the house, a Pecoj family.
Through the period of our studies, we have found five distinct houses which originally carried the Malešič surname in Podklanec. This is the first of the five houses (in order of house address).
