Re: [S-R] Re: Slovak Surnames Lacsni, Lacny, Gajdos, Mlinarcik,Jeriscak
- I can add two more: Gajdos may be out of usage as a common Slovak
word nowadays, but it means a bagpiper: gajdy = bagpipes, gajdos
= bagpiper. (Can you tell I love bagpipes?)
Lacsni/Lacny - if Slovak, this would mean desirous or hungry (no,
not Hungary!); and
if these are from a Rusyn/Ukrainian area, there's a Ukrainian
word lachny meaning timid or dreadful, kind of opposite meanings
in some ways!
