I think it must be an import. There is a Hungarian word, KORCS, meaning "half-breed", but that's probably coincidence. I didn't know there was a Czech version of this name, that can only add to the confusion regarding its origin.
As for the meaning I've seen several explanations, none of them satisfactory; from a word for a tree-stump, a wooden shovel or scoop, wine-glass.
Is it Hebrew? I don't think so. Is it a Jewish name? Apart from Janusz Korczak, who was born Henryk Goldszmit, I don't know of any Jewish Korczaks.
