Post subject: Origin of surname Aszklar
Hi. I just started researching my family tree and had the AncestryDNA done. I'm interested in learnng as much as I can about my maternal grandmother's side. Her name was Mary Aszklar and her married name was Fiess. Her parents were born in Lubatowka and emmigrated to the US(Connecticut). Their names were Thekla(or Tekla) and Albert Aszklar. Tekla's maiden name was Zajac. I met a distant relative online who told me a geneaology expert told her that although the Aszklar's lived in Poland, that's not where the Aszklar name originated from. She didn't know what country could have been the origin. Can anyone tell me the origin of the surname Aszklar? I appreciate your time in helping me with this.

Tekla and Albert Aszklar where my grandparents on my mothers side. I never meet them. Their children were orphaned and put in foster care from what I know. My mother was Stephanie Teresa Aszklar.
Surname Aszklar is indeed a very mysterious one. Its origin is unclear, however accordingly to Hoffman's "Polish surnames" it might come from Turkish aşklar, “love”. This surname is the most common in southeastern Poland, especially in Krosno. As you can see Lubatówka is really close to Krosno: https://goo.gl/maps/9XnETsYTrjn
