GALISTEL surname
Hello, this is my mothers maternal mothers surname. Earliest found records passed down from family, is that GALISTEL family lived in Destne, Czechia about 1835. Galistel does not seem to be a slavic name. any idea of the origin of this family surname?
thank you,

Records show that the Gallistel migrants to the US came from Austria as per tinyurl.com/y7vwwwzf. Whether Galistel or Gallistel was the original form of the surname is hard to tell, though the latter is much more common in the US. The origin of the name is unknown to me.
