This article describes the results of an expert analysis carried out for the Slovenian government Commission for the Standardization of Geographical Names regarding the proper name for a stream that flows through Podkoren in the Upper Sava Valley. Various forms of its name appear in written sources and on maps, and further confusion is created by the fact that the names are unsettled both for the longer affluent that flows down from Koren Saddle and for the shorter (but high-volume) affluent that starts at a spring just beyond the upper end of the village and joins the longer affluent after a few dozen meters. Through geographical, historical, and linguistic analyses were performed based on diverse text and graphic resources in order to determine the stream's proper name. Detailed discussions were also held with people familiar with the local conditions and field examinations were conducted. - (IKR)
