Re: Jufufce Hajic
Jufuf and Jafuf are East-European first names. I get the impression they are variants of Yusuf (Joseph). Haji or Hadji is a Muslim honorific reserved for those who have made the 'Haj' or pilgrimage to Mecca. In practice it often became like a second surname. So if the final -ic means 'son of' we get 'son of Jufufce-who-made-the-pilgrimage. Unfortunately, I can find no evidence that a surname like Jufufce actually exists...

Or more probably the second part is the Turkish name Cehad 'Holy War' (from Arabic Jihad).
