      Kathy,
      As I posted, Gajdos is both a surname and a village. As has been noted Gajdos is Smith or Jones as surnames go in Slovakia. Since there are so many the difficult part is pinning yours down to the location they are from. In genealogy location is the one piece of information that is vital, because only by knowing that can you then search the records for that place.
      As for the “do” name, I would suspect that with the number of Gajdos surname members they would need some means of telling people with the same given name apart. So I would not be surprised that some system like the “do” alias system was used. But a hyphenated name can be something other than a “do” name. In second marriages a child of the bride can have a child with a hyphenated name. As with any finding, one cannot make a presumption and claim it as a fact unless there is proof to support it.

      Would this be like a "do" name that someone else was talking about earlier. If there is a place Gajdos, maybe? K

      This is why translating last names today is almost futile. Gajdy are not bagpipes in the Scottish sense, just to let you know. They are closely related to them. But, Gajdoš is the Smith or Jones of Slovakia.
