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 originally carried the name of Pavliči which likely is a reflection of the man who originally established this household, Pavle or Paul. It was later changed to Gornji Pavliči to accommodate the second Pavliči at Učakovci 31 who are known as the Spodnji Pavliči.
Through the period of our studies, we have found 7 distinct houses which originally carried the Verbanec surname in Učakovci. This is the second of the seven houses (in order of house address).
