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 Jureji. The origin of the name is likely from the first generation patriarch (Jurij Mihelčič) in this house in the 19th century. Eventually, the household name became Rožmanovi after a Rožman man married into this house. The original surname in this house was Mihelčič.
Through the period of our studies, we have found 7 distinct houses which originally carried the Mihelčič surname–not to be confused with the Mihelič surname. This is the second of the seven houses (in order of house address).
