Surnam BOKUZHAKIAL ? #romania #names


Rony Golan
 

Hello all,

A man who immigrated from Romania to Israel, indicated in a certain document that his mother's maiden name was: בוקוז'אקיאל.
The Hebrew handwriting is very clear.

If I transliterate the name into Latin letters it reads: Bu(Bo)-Ku(Ko)-Zha-Ki-Al Bokuzhakial.

I can't find any other mention of this surnmae or anything that sounds like it.

Do you know this surname or any close one? Any other ideas?

Thank you and a Happy Tu BiShvat!

The name seems similar to my family name BOGUCHWAL. They were from Szydlow, Poland.

I found Boguchwal in Beider's Jewish Surnames from Galicia.  It means bogu chwala which is Polish for  praise to G-d.  And it is also associated with a village of Boguchwala.

Hi Roni,

I found a few references to a Romanian historian named Emanoil Bucuja and a teacher named Margherita Bucuja. 

Hence the family name is possibly Bucuja. 

Kiel as a given name remains a mystery. 
Even though the ending -el is very much Jewish...

Good luck !

Rony,

Try a search for surname BOKUZHAKIAL at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/
When I used a "fuzziest match" search I found:
BUZHAKAR
BOZHIKIL / BOZIKIL
BUZHAKIR
Buzhaka* Lazar* (listed in the testimony of Schapira Liviu

Hope this helps,

BUCUJA has been found as a Romanian family name. 

My suggestion for KIEL is Ezechiel / Yehezquiel. 

KIEL might be a nickname based on the end of Yehezquiel, just like :

ALEXANDER => SANDER / SASHA

AKIVA => KIVA / KIVE

ANATOLY => TOLIA

ANTONY => TONY

PATRICIA => TRICIA

Thus the searched person is possibly 

        EZEQUIEL BUCUJA. 

The vowels may be different, of course. 

This is my best guess.

Oups !
I forgot we were looking for a woman...
Ezequiel is not a good possibility.
