I need a character name. Something from Bosnia or the surrounding area, but not a common name. Gender doesn't matter. Bonus if the name has a negative connotation from history but it's still in use.

@tomasino @kyzh Slobodan (m, maybe too on the nose? Not common in Bosnia or Croatia, though), Marica (f)

@tomasino

Do you need only first name?

Radovan
Gavrilo
Franjo
Ratko

Some of those names can be triggering to some relatives of the victims of war crimes.

Well in the late 80s, Medjugorje became very famous esp. to predominantly Catholic countries like the Philippines... apparntly the BVM appeared to 3(?) teens & eventually became known as the Our Lady of Medjugorje. Kind of like the eastern European vers of the Fátima
