      Dear Pat,
      You must be careful.
      The O I was talking about was hungarian.It means old.
      Now, you talk about a slovak O; upper or lower case, no matter, it means
      Slovak places used to have hungarian names. Even those hungarian names
      varied through time. This is giving a lot of headache to many searchers.
      This is why I recommend to buy the book about those names.
