I've been researching further. I went to this page and searched škopac: http://www.eudict.com/?lang=croall&word=%C5%A1kopac&go=Search
. I got to škopac through several searches. Anyway, this page has a little note from the author, who lives in Croatia. I suspect Tomislav will be able to help you with real info and not supposition. He could probably tell you straight out what Skopec means in Slovene.
This said, I'm always willing to do some random connections in my mind. [A little knowledge and dangerous blah, blah, blah] I found this conversation: http://sci.tech-archive.net/Archive/sci.lang/2007-07/msg00579.html
. The important part is this: I would then go on to associate caballlus with Pol. "skop", Boh.
"skopec", *SCr. "skopec" for a wether, or castrated sheep.* In these
cases, the underlying root is cap- 'head', prefixed by "s-mobile."
I don't know exactly where the author is getting skopec as wether for Serbo-Croation considering what the other dictionary is saying. But this basically supports my original post using Czech, so I'm not really caring at this second. Perhaps skopec is the Slovene word for the Croation škopac? The whole "s-mobile" I'm guessing is about the preposition "s" which is translated into "with" for CZ, SK, and Croation. I assume it works for Slovene as well.
I guess the heart of the matter is: check with Tomislav if you can.
