It is not possible to tell, where it originates from, but my book says, that the surname Kuchta comes straight from the word kuchta, which is slavic or slovak, and means kitchen apprentice.
There you go.
For the Zloch I already told you.

Vlad: Now I think I found out the answer as to why there are so many Kuchta
families in Austria. I was always thinking that maybe, my name Kuchta
originated in Austria and that it wasn't necessarily a Slovak name. Now, I
think that these were Slovaks that lived in that land before the Austrians
took a foot hold. What do you think?
