Reply with quote

Hello Smile
My grandmas surname is ślękova or some version of this. Her husband’s surname was ślęk. I don’t know if it has any meaning in Polish language but I would like to know. Also if it descends from any other word or has any meaning what so ever. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you <3

Kleyraeyy,

Ślęk is from Polish ślęczeć- “to hatch, wait, stay a long time, slog through,”

See the contemporary map of the surname distribution: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Ślęk . Nowadays in Poland there are 307 people bearing this surname.

In geneteka there are some records indexed for Ślęk people, so you might try to look for your ancestors: https://geneszukacz.genealodzy.pl/index.php?search_lastname=%C5%9Bl%C4%99k&from_date=&to_date=&rpp1=&bdm=&url1=&w=&lang=pol&op=se
