Reply to: the meaning of surname PUSKAS by Anonymous

Please note that the Hungarian PUSKAS is heard exactly as Polish PUSZKASZ and PUSZKARZ or near the English PUSHKASH.

So, if there is a Polish word Puszkarz meaning "gunsmith" or "gunman", then it is probable that the Hungarian family name PUSKAS is borrowed from Polish.
