        Hi everyone! I have the family name Benyasko in my
        family tree, and it turned up in the late 19th and
        early 20th centuries at radixindex.com and arcanum.hu,
        both times in connection with Spisske Podhradie, and
        thus my own ancestral place of origins.

        The name seems fairly unusual, and thus I am wondering
        whether anyone else has ever come across it. I'm also
        wondering if it could be a variant version of, or have
        developed from, some other name.

        Any suggestions would be most welcome!
