Lund aka Lunni aka Puffin aka тУпик ака Птица

Lingvo was the begining:

I thought (misunderstood) that translation is only about “dead end” word – тупік (тупик) – end of road, where cars can not be forwarded.
Then, with help of Google groups (soc.culture.baltics, soc.culture.nordic, soc.culture.europe, soc.culture.german, soc.culture.scottish) I have discovered something new for me. I found this translation, and read more attentively:

In some languages, root of my surname – “LUND” meant many different things, but this bird is MAIN MEANING in Nordic, germanic, Icelandic countries (Germany, Danemark, Norway, Sweden)

If any new ideas will be provided here as comments  – I will be very appreciated.

PS. This is second bird in my life, I have related to my Surname.
First was – Лунь степовий (UA)

Looking forward to get more info about this all stuff.


Another Polish version of Lundiak

Thanks to Alex Sharon from my discussion in Google:  Group Soc.Culture.Slavic, Polish,  Chech-Slovak I have discovered for myself another polish variant – Lundziak.

Strange, in Ukraine it sounds like Лундзяк … but.

This is pending approval version, but still, now I have more than I had:

  • Łundiak – Лундяк (Вундяк, Ўундяк),
  • Łuńdiak – Луньдяк (Вуньдяк, Ўуньдяк)
  • Lundiak – Люндяк,
  • Luńdiak – Люньдяк

And even Liundiak or Lyundiak – as Люндяк


  • late-2014: Since I have recent updates, this was really surname of one branch of Lundiak/Люндяк heritage from Ukraine/Kalusz/Novitsa. Details here.
  • Here is 2014/09 another article I published here – Lundiak vs.Lundziak
  • 2106: Over searching the Internet, I also found Lundziak Daniel, (Russia, Poland) Lundziak Józefa (Poland), Lundziak Franciska (Germany).
  • 2017: Continue research Lundziak Daniel. No significant results found.
  • 2018: Found Lundziak Jan and Helena in Opole – 2 kind of search results. Proof of connection.

One more to research:

  • Lundžak =? Lundschak =? Lundjak =? Лунджак(Люнджак)

Citizen of(from) Lund

I have recently subscribed on some of Google Groups:
soc.genealogy.nordic, soc.genealogy.german,
soc.genealogy.britain, soc.genealogy.ireland, alt.genealogy
soc.culture.baltics, soc.culture.nordic, soc.culture.europe,
soc.culture.german, soc.culture.scottish

And i have some results:

1) How citizen of Lund are called by different people on our planet:

– Hungarian (Magyar) saying about people from Lund use word: “LUNDIAK
– people from Lund saying about themselves use word: “LUNDENSARE”
Scotish (in progress) – thinking about LUNDIAN LUNDIOM or LUNDIA or LUNDIE
– German use “ein Lunder” to describe people from Lund. (Thanks charles and Tadas Blind)
– Finland’s people use “LUNDILAISET” to say about people from Lund
– in Lithuanian (Lund – LUNDiškis)
– Estonian language: people of Lund – lundLASED.
– In Latvian it would be Lundnieks or Lundaanis,

???  In English “Lundoner” means someone who is from London. – ???

2) What exactly word “Lund” means in different countries and language:
– A “lund” in Swedish is a “grove” or “coppice” in English. (thanks to Kurt F. from soc.genealogy.nordic post) – ГАЙ (укр)
– NEW word ” meadow” means “луг”
More here :
Later on, people from the Scandinavian middle classes, particularly artisans and town dwellers, adopted names in a similar fashion to that of the nobility. Family names joining two elements from nature such as the Swedish Bergman (“mountain man”), Holmberg (“island mountain”), Lindgren (“linden branch”), Sandström and Åkerlund (“field meadow“) were quite frequent and remain common today. 

– in german Lund mean Fratercula arctica (Thanks charles and Tadas Blinda)
– scotish (in progress)
– Snow is lumi in Estonian but “there was snowfall” would be “sadas lund”
– Lundy was(is) the Norse word for ‘Puffin’
– Lund in German means the bird “puffin”.
– Lund literally is Lehto in finnish
– понедельник; англ. Monday, франц. Lundi
– In Latvian “lund” word doesn’t make any sense.

PS: “Skoon” is the way that “Scone” is pronounced. Scone is the name of a place, 
and thus fairly common as a name.
