Surnames Leskovar and Tisarovski
Could anyone please assist in finding the origin and meaning of the surnames Leskovar and Tisarovski? As far I can discern there is currently no-one bearing the latter name, but it once belonged to an ancestor of mine.
Any helpful information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Tisarovski must be related to the Polish name Tesarowski which is derived from Czech tesař 'carpenter'. Leskovar is Serbo-Croatian and would seem to have something to do with very common placenames like Leskova, Leskovo, Leskovac, etc. in that part of the world but that's just a guess.
