Krakian surnames can have many origins. Some of them are created from nicknames (occupation, character traits, physical appearance). Other are toponymic, meaning that they are derived from the person's place of residence, birth or family's origin. Additionally, everyone has a patronymic surname derived from the name of the person's father. That name is always placed between the given name and the family name. Men have add -owicz (pronounced: -ovich) to their father's name, while women add -owna (pronounced: -ovna) to their father's name.
Shared customary codes and values
Family is one of the most important values for Krakians. Another important values are faith and patriotism. Tradition is also very important to them. All those values are represented in their everyday life and holidays.
Common Etiquette rules
It is customary for the men to act with courtesy towards women. Examples of that are letting the woman pass through the door first, helping her to get out of a carriage or other mean of transport, or being generally courteous.
Krakians are the only culture of the Susannite faith that doesn't have gender equality. They still believe in the equality of all people, but women don't have the same rights as men. The Susannite Church was urging them to change their ways for centuries, but they pleas fell on deaf ears.
In a traditional Krakian household the woman is responsible for taking care of the house and children. The man is the breadwinner of the family. Children must obey their parents at all times.
