With regard to this hypothesis, I have also noticed that Novak himself is a surname well present in Trieste and, still in the same Novach area, there are further Italianisations such as Novacco and Novacchi - the latter is typical mostly of Monfalcone, in the Gorizia area. For their diffusion, however, I believe that these are surnames of Slovenian origin (alternatively Croatian), bearing in mind that, very curiously, Novak is the most widespread surname in Slovenia (as well as in Poland, Slovakia and the Republic Czech), while in Croatia it ranks second in the standings. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Novak is the most common surname in Slovenia, widespread throughout the Slovenian linguistic domain from Italy to Hungary and from Austria to the Croatian border.
