    I was hoping someone could help me with determining the origin of the surname Butsky. My DH’s maternal side had an ancestor emigrate from West Prussia to the US. He spelled his surname as Butzke, which I believe is the germanized version of Butsky. I’m thinking this surname originated in Russia/Ukraine. Can anyone help? TIA!

    Emigrated from West Prussia and you consider Russia or Ukraine? In what year your ancestor left Europe?

    Bucki surname may be connected with “Buk” – a beech.

    Russian sources state surname maybe of Ukrainian origin from butsati – to horn. Or Belarusian from butsian (butsjan/буцян) – stork.

    It’s not a certain answer.

    In Belarusian stork is butsian. In Polish – bocian. I am not sure how Kashubs name the bird. Maybe there is Butscian in Polish dialects.
