Meaning & History

Semi-Germanized form of the Polish surname Burczak, originally derived from Polish burczec "growl; shout".
The "translation" Bauersack is influenced by the German words Bauer (via Low German Bur) "farmer" and Sack "bag", which often leads to the interpretation of this surname being a derisive nickname for a farmer.
