Origins Available: Polish, Russian


The distinguished Polish surname Zukowsky is of nickname origin, deriving from the word "zuch," meaning "brave, dashing, or daring fellow." The name was most likely given to the original bearer as a nickname and then passed down as a hereditary surname.

Zukowsky Early Origins



The surname Zukowsky was first found in Polesie, the largest province of Poland. It is inhabited by Ruthenians, called Polesians, of Ukrainian descent. The main towns are those of Brest Litovsk, Pinsk, Kobryn, Kamenets, Litovsk, and Luninets. It was in this province that the renowned Radziwills and Sapiehas held their vast estates. Wolczyn was the seat of the Czartoryski family. 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. In their later history the bearers of the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. They were a branch of the Royal Clan Gryf and their first records originate in 1399. Later they were found in Crakow.
