    I always thought that Ballack looked south slav/Balkan and I just bumped into some random info that he actually is a Lusatian Serb.

    His surname sounds very Slavic. Aren't names with "ek" or "ak" suffixes common among West Slavs?

    They're present, but I don't know if they are that much common, however "Nowak" seems to be one of the most popular in Poland I think. We had a painter – Wojciech Kossak, whose twin brother was a mayor in the army, and whose son – Jerzy Kossak, was also a painter. We had a writer, Sławomir Mrożek, who died last year. But still more often suffixes are: -ski/-ska; -cki/-cka; -uk; -icz. I think.

    I knew before Ballack is a Sorb, but to be honest – German team in football is not much German at all :p
