Name Meaning

1 Slovenian (Polič) and Croatian (Polić): from pol ‘half’, in any of various possible senses: most probably a status name for a peasant who held half the standard measure of land (i.e. half a ‘grunt’), or for a tenant of a farm who had to pay half of its produce in rent. It may also be from polič, a kind of jug-like drinking vessel containing half the standard measure of cubic capacity.2 Croatian (Polić): on the Dalmatian coast, a pet form of the personal name Polo, a pet form of Paul under Venetian influence.3 Slovenian (Polič): perhaps a metronymic from a short form of the personal name Polona, vernacular form of Apolonija, Latin Apollonia.
