@Sviatogor, well. I would never made such mistake about geography, as I always liked this subject. But it is possible that people do not know where Lithuania is. I don’t know much about starka, but if it is of Lithuanian or Polish origin, it doesn’t matter to me.
Probably it means “old”. Or maybe it is somehow connected with a place or name of “creator”. I think no one is 100% sure about this.
