Name Meaning

Polish (Pakuła):1. from Polish pakuły ‘tow’ (in the sense ‘loose ends of linen or rope’), hence a nickname for someone with tow-colored hair, or perhaps a metonymic occupational name for someone who worked with linen or hemp. 2. from a derivative of the personal name Pakosław, from Old Slavic paće ‘more’ + slav ‘glory’.
