      I once knew a girl named Carole Pytlik who had no idea what her ethnicity

      It's a diminutive of _pytel_, which is Czech/West Slovak regional for
      "sack, bag." _Pytlici_ is an untypical "human" plural, which results in the
      meaning of "baggers," i.e., those who carried (things in) bags. The standard
      plural, "sacks, bags," is pytliky.
