Flinkas
I have a friend with this surname, but I never bothered to ask. I really don't know the background, but I would say German, since she is blue-eyed blonde. But Flinkas doesn't sound much german to me. Maybe it's swedish... So, I'm confused. And for that, I've came here to ask for help on this surname.Thanks in advance!

Flink is a surname found in Germany and Sweden. The word means "nimble, agile" in the languages of both countries. there are also places in Southern Sweden called Flinka, East F. and West F. Could one of these be a source?

Actually, there are some small places in Finland too with the name Flinkas.

Oh, I see. Thank you, Jim. It didn't sound german (for me), but I think it is then. (She uses the German national football team shirt sometimes, but I was not sure.)
