Czech


Gender: Masculine
Origin: Polish

(CHEK)

The name is of uncertain derivation, some sources list it as a derivative of Czesław, while others contend that it is from the Old Polish referring to someone from the Czech lands.

The name appears in Polish legend as the name of the legendary progenitor of the Czech people, the brother of Lech (progenitor of the Poles) and Rus (progenitor of the Russians).

The name is extremely rare in Poland, but its designated name-day is September 2.

Other forms are Czechasz (CHEH-hahsh); and Czechoń (CHEH-hoing).
