Name Chemerys
Hey folks,
my family is from the Western Ukraine. And I wonder where did my surname come from since it isn't a typical ukranian surname. Sounds more greek or so. Does anybody know anything about this surname and/or has anybody the same surname or a variation of it? For example Chemeres or Chemeris or as we have now in Germany Tschemeris?
Thx,
Andy

This name is also found in Poland as Czemerys, no explanation found.
There is a Ukrainian word, Chemer, meaning "forelock"; and a word, chemerytsia, the name of a plant.
