Name Meaning

Ukrainian, Rusyn, and Polish; Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian (Kozák): ethnic name for a Cossack, a member of a Slavic people descended from a group of runaway serfs who set up a semi-independent military republic in Ukraine in the 15th and 16th centuries. The Cossacks became noted for their military prowess. The name Cossack is of Turkic origin (from quzzaq ‘adventurer, guerilla’; compare Turkish Kazak ), but most European languages borrowed it from East Slavic. Compare Kosack , Kosak 5, and Kozack .

Polish; Czech (Kozák): occupational name for a goatherd, from a derivative of Koza ‘nanny goat’. The homonymous Sorbian cognates Kózak and Kozak (from Lower Sorbian kóza, Upper Sorbian koza) are apparently found in Germanized and Americanized forms, only (see Kosack and Kosak ).

Slovak and Czech (Kozák): possibly also from kozák, a kind of mushroom from the genus Leccinum.
