Name list

Novak, Novák, Nowak or Novack is a Slavic surname and masculine given name, derived from the word for "new", which depending on the exact language and usage, translates as "novice", "new man", "newcomer", or "stranger". The name was often given to a new arrival in a city or a convert to Christianity. It was also used for newcomers to an army and as an occupational surname for people who used the slash-and-burn method to create new arable land—novina. It is pronounced almost the same way in most languages, with the stress on the first syllable. The main exception is Slovene, which places the stress on the last syllable.
