Czech and Slovak Names
Czech and Slovak names
are used in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, two countries which use closely related languages
). The full Czech or Slovak name
usually consists of a given name
and a family name
The family name differs depending on whether it belongs to a male or female. Usually the suffix -ová is added to the masculine form to make it feminine. For example, the family name Novák becomes Nováková. If the family name is adjectival (ending in -ý) then the suffix -á is added. For example Novotný becomes Novotná.
Given names are often taken from the names of saints. Some traditional Slavic names are also in use. See European names.
The word name in Czech is jméno, in Slovak is meno.
