The author has researched from the historical point of view the origin, development and especially the relationships between the ethnonyms: Greek Sklávoi, Latin Sclavi, Slavonic Slovieni and Slovak Slováci and Slovania (Slavs). As a source base, he used the occurrences of these and a larger number of related ethnonyms, namely: Anti, Czechs, Croats, Korutánci, Moravians, Obodriti, Predenecenti, Poles, Russians, Sakaliba, Serbs, Veleti, Vinedi, in written sources from the 6th to the mid-19th century.
