The surname PELACHI: PE (e like pet) LA (a like tall or possibly like cat) CH ( sounds like ch in cheese or possibly like zh like si in vision) the I ( like e in eat). This was my great-grandfather's name. He was from Montenegro but may actually have been of a Czech ethnic origin. Pelachi is a phonetic spelling as it would sound to a Spanish speaker and then to an English speaker. Today it is spelled PELACHE and sounds like the earlier PELACHI.
