Description The article strives to reflect the toponomastic term “název místní části“ (minor settlement name). In scholarly toponomastic works, this term is currently used in a meaning different from the definition given in a work dealing with Slavonic onomastics (1973): minor settlement within a village can refer both to built-up and vacant areas in the village, to objects standing autonomously as well as inside the built-up area. The term minor settlement (“místní část”) is not event included in a current law on villages – therefore a question arises, whether this term should be replaced by another one and newly defined as well.
