    I believe Kantardzic is derived from kantar – an archaic device used for measuring weight. It is also used as a weight unit somewhere.

    The suggested etymology of kantar is from Latin centenarium – a weight unit of hundred pounds (centum mean hundred). I couldn't find any Slavic etymology, but some forum members might figure out something.

    Kantardzija would mean a kantar-maker and that was probably the profession of some of your ancestors. Or maybe, they were to critical on many issues, since the indirect meaning of "measuring with kantar" is "giving critics".
