Dob (toponym)

Dob is a Slovene toponym, found in Slovenia, Austria and Italy. It derives from an Proto-Slavic word dǫbъ (oak). The word dob is today used exclusively for Quercus robur (Slovene: dob), as other oak species have progressively taken other names. Toponyms having their root in the word "dob" are sometimes hard to distinguish from other similar Slovene words —— particularly dober, and dobra ( English: good), which can be used to refer to many other types of places.
