Summary/Abstract: The author has researched from the historical point of view the origin, development and especially the relationships between the ethnonyms: Greek Sklávoi, Latin Sclavi, Slavonic Slovieni and Slovak Slováci (Slovaks) and Slovania (Slavs). As a source base, he used the occurrences of these and a larger number of related ethnonyms, namely: Anti, Czechs, Croats, Korutánci, Moravians, Obodriti, Predenecenti, Poles, Russians, Sakaliba, Serbs, Veleti, Vinedi, in written sources from the 6th to the mid 19th century. The findings correct or overturn the existing views of numerous Slovak and other linguists and historians. The main finding of the author can be briefly expressed by the historical and linguistic relationship: Sklávoi → Slovieni → Sloveni → Slovaks, Slovania.
