Slovene is an Indo-European language, belonging to the family of South Slavic languages. Spoken by over two million people in the world, Slovene is one of the few languages that has preserved the grammatical number from Proto-Indo-European.
The country Slovenia has had a turbulent history. It has been a part of many different nations and empires, which is why the Slovene first names have cultural influences from all over the world. As for the surname, Slovenians follow a standard, European naming convention. But they do not follow the patronymic system, which is common in eastern European countries. But you will still find the existence of remnants of this system in some of their surnames, take Johnson for example. Most of the Slovenian family names end with –eč or –ič. Women adopt the family name of the husband after the wedding. Also, titles like Gospod (Mr), Gospa (Mrs), and Gospodicna (Miss) are used in conjunction with the family name.
