In Reply to: Origin of Kerkez surname by Pete Kerkez of 705

Origin of the surname KERKEZ :

- etnonym KERKEZ / ČERKEZ It denotes the name in Turkish language of the Adyghe people.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adyghe_people


In Serbian language in dialect spoken in Kosovo ČERKEZ is also documented in meanings village,cemetery.




I would have to dig around to see when was the earliest documented occurrence in historical sources.


A good post from our forum with information and referenced original sources on origin of several branches of KERKEZ families:
