KOLISCH #austria-czech

While we are on the subject of names, does anyone have a theory/explanation
for the name KOLISCH? This part of my family came >from Korycany
(Koritschan), Moravia. It is not such a common name, but does seem quite
close to KALISCH, which is more common and is linked to the Prussian town
Kalisz (Kalisch) in Posen (now in Poland). Is Kolisch definitely a variant
of Kalisch? Or is there some other explanation?
