The name Hajduk is derived ultimately from the Hungarian word "hajto," which meant "drover" (a herder of cattle). In Poland, the term was used for the armed retainer of a nobleman, or a Hungarian foot soldier.

Hajduk Early Origins



The surname Hajduk was first found in Galicia which lies in southern Poland on the northern slopes of the Carpathians. It was overrun by Monguls in 1223. The region is composed of Polish and Ukrainian natives, the latter being to the east. The Ruthenian nobles adopted the Catholic faith and the Polish tongue. The surname became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region.
