Many localities have similar names that may be easily confused. An example would be the place names: Kámen, Kamenec, Kamenica, Kamenice,Kamenička, Kamenický, Kamenka, Kamenná, Kamenné, Kamenný

Czech grammatical endings can change an actual place name. The expression in Kamenka is v Kamence and from Kamenka is z Kamenky.

Some place names remained the same while others were changed. For example Vnorovy village in Moravia was known by the name Znorovy, Znorov and Znorow.
