*Vitukhnovsky - Another Jewish surname. May have Polish/Belarus rooths.
*Pritsker - A Jewish surname.
*Goldenstern - Why would someone get called "golden star"? Has it something to do with Judaism's symbol, the Star of David?
*Dunets - Bearers I know named this live in Russia.
*Matskevich - Most likely Polish. I know that -evich is similar with "English/Scandinavian" -son, but son of who, in case of Matskevich. Something Matthew-related?
*Metzner - Not Metzger, Metzner. A German surname.
*Roller - German.
*Björklöf - Bearers come from the Swedish-speaking minority of Finland. Since "Björk" means "birch" in Swedish, and "löf" might be a Scandinavian form of Leaf, does "Björklöf" mean simply "leaf of birch tree"?
Thanks! You'll be great help if you know something about any of these surnames! :)
