- Jun 7, 2003Dear 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.
