Looking for info on the name Guligowski

Hi again! This time I'm trying to find info on the name Guligowski. This is another great great grandfather, we believe that he was German but took his step-fathers name. Unfortunately we have no other info on either of his parents.

I'm hoping that with info on this name I can maybe find some records that would tell me more on who he was.

Thanks :)

GULIGOWSKI: The -owski ending almost always indicates toponymic origin, however, no locality such as Guligów or Guligowo can be found. The only word in Polish incorporating the first part is guli-guli (also gulu-gulu) a word imitating someone drinking. There is an off-chance that the village drunk might have been humorously dubbed Guligowski. My hunch is that this was a misheard and misspelt version of Kuligowski which is far more common and is traceable to existing places: Kuligów and Kuligowo. Root-word kulig=sleigh ride or a bird–the curlew (properly kulik). So those places might be translated as Sleighton or Curlewville.

Thanks Polonius3, very helpful info and I have to add, pretty funny too! This might be alot harder to trace any connection to than I thought, but it's a fun story!

Thanks :)

On the contrary, only 70 people in Poland are named Guligowski, and their obvious ancestral nest is central Poland's £ódź region (57) with a bit of spill-over into the neighbouring Sieradz area (9). Haivng a rare surname is often a boon to those wishing to track down theri roots.

You would be worse off if your name were Kuligowski (more than 4,000 users with an epicentre in and around the northern city of Bydgoszcz).

Wow, with all of them in a concentrated area, it should be much easier to find something! Polonius3, you are great!

Some people, like me, just don't have a clue how to trace our ancestors overseas. And I am very appreciative of all help!

Thanks!! :)
