That is very much NOT a ridiculous question!

I didn't realize that at all until I found my grandmother's 2nd return trip years ago to the US and she was listed with the -ova ending. Never came up when talking with my Mom about the language.

Short answer to it: yes.

Here's a some useful reference:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_name#Female_surnames

Also - see page 12 on this reference PDF:
