English term or phrase: to my coworker Zachariáš Smith
I'm confused about the dative endings that would be used in this combination: "mému spolupracovníkovi Zachariáši Smithovi" ??? Or do all the nouns take "-ovi" here?

Czech translation:Zachariáši Smithovi
Explanation:
Yes, the form ´Zachariáši Smithovi´ is the only correct one. All male names ending with a consonant are declined this way in Czech using the -ovi ending in the dative case (with the exception of some exotic ones whose form is invariable).
