If you can trace the name back to early 1800's, I've noticed after finding many of the roots I was researching, many took their names from small villages. Rzeszotarski took their name from Rzeszotary, Siemiatkowski took their name from Siemiatkowo for example. Not all the time, but more than I would have thought. I found using google maps, I was able to zoom in and see villages that would not show when typed in. Bojanowo was where my great grandfather was born in 1878. It took me finding that Gradzanowo was a pinpoint. Once I zoomed in on Gradzanowo, I saw the small village of Bojanowo. Takes time.

Hi,

I checked William Hoffman's "Polish Surnames" book (3rd edition) for the surname Ćwik. On page 114, there is the description "game bird, sparrow hawk; sly fellow with experience". The book also indicates that as of year 2002 approximately 4900 people in Poland have Ćwik as their surname.
Have you checked the Geneteka Website (https://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/)?

Mike
