The Polish surname Czyeski is derived from the Polish word "czyz," meaning "greenfinch," and as a surname it was most likely originally a nickname. Nickname surnames are those names which derive their origin from a physical characteristic or personal attribute of the initial bearer. The name may have been born by someone who kept birds or by someone who enjoyed singing. Alternatively, this name may be of house-name origin, that is, a name derived from the medieval practice of displaying a sign, engraving or picture over one's establishment (inn or tavern). The proprietor and his family were then identified by the particular sign that they displayed, which later become their hereditary family name.
