Dolnji (Lower) Podklanec is named with reference not so much to elevation, but to direction of flow of the river Kolpa (it flows from Upper Podklanec to Lower Podklanec). This is the part of Podklanec that is furthest from Vinica. Bordering Dolnji Podklanec is Zilje to the east which extends towards Preloka.
The dominant surnames in Dolnji Podklanec are Kajin (6 houses), Medved (3 houses) and Malešič (3 houses + 1 in Gornji Podklanec). This also ties well to the tax registers which shows Mate and Ive Malešič (1690) living in Podklanec.
Other surnames that surface in these tax registers in 1674 (Lord of Vinica) are Belavič, Boriček, Dragina, Grguraš, Karin, Kopriva Kučanič, Lilak, Merešič, Miroslavič, Miselrič, Mišič, Papa, Pecoj, Piškur, Radmilič, Radovič, Ribarič, Šokan and in 1690 (Lord of Kruppa) are Benetič, Malešič and Piškur.
Many of these surnames still exist if not as a surname, as a household name, ie. Kučan, Galetič and Mišič. This list only includes the families that lived under the control of a lord. There were those who were also free.
