German, Jewish (Ashkenazic), Danish, and English: nickname for a lively and cheerful person, or, in the case of the Jewish name, an artificial name, from Middle High German vinke, Middle English and Yiddish fink ‘finch’ (see Finch and Vink ). The surname of German origin is also found in some central European countries, for example in Czechia, Slovenia, and Croatia, often as a translation into German of corresponding Slavic nicknames or surnames. In part, this is a Gottscheerish (i.e. Gottschee German) surname, originating from the Kočevsko region in Lower Carniola, Slovenia (see Kocevar ).
