    Could it be a transliterated or Anglicized form of Ząbek? Assuming he immigrated to an English speaking country

    I have been trying to teach myself Polish,for when I was growing up my parents used  Polish as a way of talking to one another so my brother and I could know what they were taling about. Back to the possible name change I came upon that form and ask my father but he could remember if it was changed. In all fairness he is 84  and his mind isnt as sharp as it used to be. Again any information is appreciated.

    He was most probably Serb (Never heard about Croat Miodrag)
    Here is source in Serbian, about all peoples in ex Yu with such surname. I guess you could not understand
