||Re: Grecian Surname "Chalikis" by Jim Young
Since posting this I've found a genealogy forum where this name is discussed. The alternative spelling Tsalikis is given there. One person writes that it's an "Arvanit" name, which I take to mean Albanian. He also states that it comes from the word celiki (C sedilla) meaning "steel". I think the Albanian suggestion is off-target, but who knows?
