Re: Naming pattern - TURKUS #general

My understanding is that patronymics were commonly used until about the mid 19th century among Ashkenazi Jews. However there does seem to be a difference here in that one of my ancestors was Iciek Leibkovich Rosenberg (so, son of Leib), whereas yours don’t appear to have the “kovich” suffix. Maybe this has something to do with the naming custom in the region where they originated rather than where they were living at the time.
It’s curious, though, and not a common surname either, I don’t think. Is there any family rumour that they may have originated in more southern parts of Europe. Any DNA clues?
Researching: ROSENBERG, SKOWRONEK, CHENCINER, Warsaw and Serock.
