Využití údajů ze "Slovníku staročeských osobních jmen" Jana Svobody při výkladu místních jmen z území Čech
The use of the data of the "Dictionary of old Czech personal names" by Jan Svoboda in the interpretation of place names in the territory of Bohemia
Languages of publication
In the individual entries of his typewritten "Dictionary of Old Czech personal names", J. Svoboda registers also place names, from which the individual personal names are formed. He reconstructs a considerable number of Old Czech personal names from place names. Place names are gained from A. Profous’s work "Place names in Bohemia" and some other works. He often provides an interpretation different from Profous’s opinion or Šmilauer’s interpretation included in the "System of Czech place names", worked out on the basis of the Profous’s work. Svoboda’s dictionary adduces also some place names and some place name records not at all included in the Profous’s work. It will be therefore necessary to present the different interpretations and add the missing place names and place name records in a future new edition of Profous’s "Place names in Bohemia", the need of which was pointed out by V. Šmilauer as early as in 1975.
