What is the Irish origin of the Czech interpretation Ryslink? My mother's maiden name was Ryslink. I contacted a relative in Kladno, CZ who researched the family back to 1620. It was first registered to a boy child fathered by a soldier of the Holy Roman Empire, probably a mercenary at the beginning of the 30 Years War. I have 10% Irish DNA so I assume he was Irish or there abouts. What I want to know is what name the Czech name Ryslink would have been derived from.
