Explanation of the name #names


I am researching what I think may be my paternal family and came across the following:
Yekutiel Zalman of Berdichev Wallis
1: There does not appear to be a last name, I am researching the last name Zalmanson. From what I can ascertain Yekutial Zalman was the father of Levi Yitzhak Zalmanson.
2: I understand that he was from Berdichev but am not sure what the Wallis represents. In some parts of the tree the last name of Wallis does appear.
I would appreciate any help.
