Correct in Serbo-Croatian (when written in latin scripture) it is Petković. However, in Germany, the accents are rarely used...

I'm always surprised when immigrants don't use their accents here. We're not allergic to them like the Americans or Brits. We even use them ourselves in names like René. Very odd.

Re: Petkovic or Petković?

well, custom configured german keyboards support ´ or ` with vowels only (é, á, ò,...), so you'd have to use a more complex workaround, which might be a reason why they are usually skipped...
