DALCA  added 6/29/2020, 8:02 PM by fcomega121

The surname Dalca probably derived from an old Romanian word meaning "Lightning".

(at first I was confused if the meaning was uncertain or 'uncertain' even if that didn't make sense, but after a little google I find it)

My last name is Schafer, without the umlaut, and I absolutely love it! Although misspelling is pretty common, the meaning "shepherd" fills my heart with so much joy. I also think it sounds quite nice. :)
