Well,

Surname Dym is listed, mostly in Galicia per JRI-P database, 697 times!
It is also listed in modern Poland 235 times, again, mostly within the ex eastern Galicia borders, for the ethnic (non-Jewish) Polish folks.
Dym translates from Polish as "smoke" and  according to Polish Slavic genealogical site, was used first as a family name in 1471.
