Re: [Slovak-World] A suffix added to family names
- "-ova" is the feminine ending for some Slovak last names (it depends on the name, but that's a whole other discussion). If someone's name ends in -ova, that someone is a female. My name is Fedor, but in Slovakia it would be Fedorova.
All opinions my own

The place is Osturna and this could be something that is not used in the Slovak language. Can someone tell me what this means. An example is the name Jasencak written in the next generation as Jasencakova.
