Královka – vrchol mnoha jmen
'KRALOVKA' - PEAK OF MANY NAMES
Languages of publication
The article deals with the oronym 'Kralovka' - a name of a well-known and attractive tourist destination in Jizerske hory (the Jizera Mountains/Isergebirge). This oronym shows how difficult it was to find proper Czech equivalents for former German toponyms in areas inhabited by German ethnicity before 1945. The oronym 'Kralovka' does not correspond with a semantic motivation of the former name 'Konigshohe', which is of deantroponymic origin. That is why an official name 'Nekras' was proposed in 1950's. This name with an unclear etymology is evidenced in 16th century; however, it has not caught on.
