The village of Bigfr in the southern Romanian Banat was settled during the 18208 by Czech-speaking peasants from Bohemia. The regional toponymy they use can be assigned to four languages--Czech, Serbian, Romanian, and German. Czech is employed especially for microtoponymy. Over 150 toponyms are classified or analyzed according to the geographic feature they refer to, their origin, linguistic structure, and motivation.
