Jména po chalupě v obcích Láz a Čenkov
Personal names after houses in the villages of Láz and Čenkov
The paper provides with an analysis of the preserved names after houses in villages Láz and Čenkov. The linguistic analysis was carried out on a total of 139 names (75 in the village of Láz, and 64 in Čenkov). The largest group consists of names based on the surnames of the original or more rarely of the current owners. However, other groups were also represented, such as names derived from nouns reflecting the psychophysical or social qualities, education or profession of the owner. A partial comparative probe proves that, in spite of sceptical prognoses, the names after houses are still used in some villages and they successfully face especially the demographic changes of the Czech countryside.
