Origin of the name Brodsky #ukraine


I have traced my paternal ancestry to my great-grandfather David Halevy Brodsky in 19th century Russia, now Ukraine, but have hit a brick wall. I believe the name Brodsky originated in the Pale as a result of Jews fleeing West during a major pogrom, but I have no evidence to support that supposition. Does anyone have any insight into the origins of the surname Brodsky? ThanksĀ
