Info on my last name please?
I'd love it if anybody could help me out here. my last name is Burkatsky, my family is Ukrainian, and I'm wondering, does the name mean anything?

I did a search and found the english name Burke/Burk for "fort or fortified town" but I have no idea if that's related.

any help is appreciated. thanks.

From my Russian name site:

Burko (m) -- dim of Buroi.

Buroi (m) -- "speedy."

The ending is likely just a diminutive ...
