Based on http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/kosice/ it is possible, even probable that they didn't use 'of' in names. Depends on where and when, and sometimes even whether or not you're noble. Sometimes, it even depends on which document you look at.
For example - after 1400 in England, the prepositions disappeared. ( see http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/bynames/ )
You probably want to talk to Walraven van Nijmegen, but I've lost track of what his current email address is. Perhaps ask the Academy of St. Gabriel? ( http://www.s-gabriel.org )
