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.
