Cavka & Fioretti
I believe I know the origins (Fioretti is Italian and Cavka is most likely Swedish), but does anyone have any other information on either name? I also think Cavka may be a variant of Kafka, which is slightly more common. Any information is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

You'll find the origin of Fioretti at http://www.ancestry.com/facts/fioretti-family-history.ashx. Čavka is Serbo-Croatian and probably comes from a place so named in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Čavka is a bird name (after which the place was named), it's daw or jackdaw in English.

oh, and one more--Leviathan -- I was just wondering if it was a legitimate surname, and if it is, then what is the origin?
