Etymology[edit]

A 1078 document, accompanying the foundation of the Hradisko Monastery,[1] refers to the village as Chomutowiczi. It was derived from personal name Chomút +‎ -ovice, meaning "a village of Chomút's people". The name Chomút is from chomút (horsecollar),[2] which was also used as a nickname for a clumsy person.[3] The suffix -ovice was shortened to -ov in the 14th century (similarly as in some other Moravian oikonyms, compare e. g. Holešov or Prostějov).[2]

Compare also Chomutov.

Pronunciation[edit]
