Kosfiszer and Fiszer in Poland and Kozolczyk and Olczyk in Belarus intriguing question #belarus #poland #general #education


I am now more puzzled than ever about the use of Kos as a name that became the first part of the family name. My family Kosfiszer used also Fiszer as the last family name.
I suspect that Olczyk and Kozolzyk may have also belonged to the same family.
In my family, Kahat, descendant of Levy, is the reason for the Kos in Kosfiszer. Also Kos is a black bird in Russian and a glass in Hebrew, and it was also used by itself as a family name. Has anybody seen any other family name that was changed by adding Kos in front of the family name?

One of the meanings of „kosy” in Polish, „kosoy” in Russian, is cross-eyed.
