Actually Stan, in Polish, spelling is Carewicz, and is not a popular
Polish name.
Many thanks to Alex for straightening that out for us. I consider
him the gold standard when it comes to Slavic surnames, and would
always take his opinion when it conflicts with that of anyone else.
In passing, may I mention the famous British horse race named after
the son of some Czar or other -- perhaps a cousin of Queen Victoria?
The race is the Cesarewitch -- which manages to mangle the spelling
without helping much with the correct pronunciation!
