      I was surprised that the "ch" [kh], was legitimate, but the phone book names are spelled that way.  I seldom see the German names which are not "converted" to Slovak.  Names such as Schuster [Shuater] in Slovak S~uster...etc.most often people experience problems with spelling and pronunciation of family names, Converting from Hungarian or German into Slovak. 
      I am not a genealogist.  My reason for contribution, is to advise in areas like this.  The other is my experience in visiting friends in all areas of Slovakia, the 28 times I visited since 1971.
      Your contributions are much deeper and I appreciate your comments if I am in error.

      S Panem Bohem,

      Vilo, Marchevka [Mahrrkhehv-kah] - From my readings, I'm pretty sure that
      this name is based on the German *Mähren* -> mährische for Moravian. So
      the name Marchevka and Marhefka are related in this way.
      I'm interested in this name as I think it is related to Morav (Slav)
      versions - eg Moravka - Moravko - Morafko - Marafko and so on.
      Do you think this is a possiblity?
