MAJOCH: augmentative form of Maj (the month). whose meaning migth have been something like 'that big old May guy'. It could have been used by Jews who converted in May.

You can phone the Urząd Gminny (municipal authority) in the locality your ancestor hailed from and ask for the Dział Ewidencji Ludności (population records section). They will usually tell you if anyone with a given surname lives in that area. Of course, this has to be done in Polish, so if you don't know the lingo, get a native Polish speaker to help you.
