English term or phrase: Zalucha
a polish last name
Kevin Zalucha
Polish translation:no translation
Explanation:
Not every last name is a word, that you can translate (like eg. Kowalski = Smith). Of course there are roots of every name, but if you want to know exactly, what it means, you should know the exact polish spelling of the name 100 and 200 years ago and also, where the family lived in this time. When you have only the recent spelling of the name and no further information, it would be possible to say, that the origin of the name is a certain word, but it can be wrong. This word could be "zal" (sorrow).
