The name Tokar is from the Carpathian Mountain area of Southeastern Poland, once known as the Lemko Region. Before World War II it was home to a colorful Eastern Slavic ethnic group known as Lemkos, who are considered Ukrainians by most scholars but who have a distinct language, culture and history. Tokar means 'turner' (woodworker). This must be the origin of the name Tokaruck.
