Is your surname really "Rukat" or an Anglicanized version of something else?

No coat of arms accompanies Rukat. There were szlahcta members amongst the bearers of the Rukowicz surname (Hipocenatur c-o-a) and 3 gentry lines in the Rukiewicz family (Hipocentaur, Jastrzębiec and Mogiła).

RUKAT: possibly derived from the Old Polish verb rukać (I won't define it, however, lest someone take offence).

Hi Jerome, my family has the same name and I was informed that there was a coat of arms but like you I have been unable to locate it. I do know that the surname was changed at some point but I have gone as far back as 1784 and it's still Rukat! What is your interest in the name?

Name Rukat coat is not, because Rukat settled in Poland in 1780, as the invaders from the east and settled in the area around Malkinia Danilov.

i have traced my family back to Wincenty Rukat 1784. I know we had a coat of arms in the middle of a cross (which my great grandfather had). I'm sure I can go back further.
