The distinguished surname Blasko is derived from the Czech given name "Blazej," which is itself derived from "Blaise," an old Roman family name which was originally a byname for someone with a speech or gait defect. The name was popular in Europe due to the fame of St. Blaise of Armenia, and became popular under a number of forms as both a surname and a given name during the Middle Ages.

Blasko Early Origins



The surname Blasko was first found in Bohemia, where it is thought to have first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Conrad Blascke, who was living in Kassel, Germany in 1380. The young Blasko family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Bohemian society.
