My last name is Pilipovic, and my father was born in the small village called Cvjetnic in the Drvar municipality of western Bosnia. Almost all people who lived in this village before the war had a Pilipovic surname. All of these people are orthodox Christians by religious affiliation and Serbs by ethnicity. Some Muslims or even Catholics with this last name are found elsewhere but can generally trace their ancestors to the same route. Today village of Cvijetnic is empty as the Croatian army bombarded every house in 1995 although all remaining (mostly older) population already fled before them. There are a few people who came back, and I even heard of some of them rightfully suing the Croatian state to the European Unions Starsbourg court. People with the last name Pilipovic today mainly live in Banja Luka (Bosnia), Backa Palanka (Serbia) and Belgrade (Serbia).
The oral tradition says that 3 brothers , one of whom was named Pilip came to the Bosnia from Golubic in Dalmatia. As they saw the valley all in bloom Pilip decided to settle there and they named their settlement "Cvjetnic".
