Re: [Slovak-World] Digest Number 1014
- Acc'd to the _Vlastivedny slovnik..._ , Markovce was obtained ("dostal") by a certain Marek ("isty Marek") in 1300, even though the name was already attested as Marky in 1281.
The entry for Mirkovce doesn't give any names from which the village name was derived.

wonder were these names made from someone who would have been important
in the village or country and did adding the ovce on the end mean that
it was a village or town. I'm thinking as we Americans might add the
ending as ville on the end of a towns name. I'm not familiar with the
Slovak language as you can see.
