Lol, I just want to know the meaning of the family name. The lady with that name was good looking but middle aged so older than me. :P

The meaning? Hard to say. Closest association is with klik which comes from English click. So Klicks could be clicks, that`s all.

but middle aged so older than me.

You shouldn`t be so biased, age doesn` t matter.

I used to know a couple called Kliks.
As for how popular it is
nlp.actaforte.pl:8080/Nomina/Ndistr?nazwisko=Kliks
As for its meaning I don't know, it might be a Polonised version of a German surname considering the surname's distribution or a Polish surname with an obsolete meaning.

Once I met a lady called Lux - and that was probably a transcription of Luchs.

Family origin of Wieniewitz



Has anyone ever come across anyone in Poland named Wieniewitz or any variation of this spelling? GG Grand Father was Lewis or Luis, immigrated to USA before 1891

#113 From piła-saw.
Yes thank you! But would Pilarz be more a "saw maker" or a "sawyer" ?

The dictionary suggests that pilarz is a worker who uses the saw.
sjp.pl/pilarz
Saw maker would be wytwórca pił/producent pił/kowal kujący piły.
