Description

Etymology

The name Ľupča is derived from Slavic personal name with a root Ľub. Lipche/Lypche (Lipcse) are already Hungarized forms because of contemporary practice of the Royal Estate, however also these forms were sometimes again Slovakized in medieval documents (e.g. Lipcza). The etymological adjective "Nemecká" (German) Ľupča referenced to the ethnic composition of the town in the Middle Ages. After World War II it was changed to "Partizánska" (Partisan) Ľupča thanks to its active participation in the Slovak National Uprising.
