Bob Hall is correct, Lasko could be a shortened form of another name. There are other possibilities. Yad Vashem shows a number of Jewish families from Poland named Lasko. The name could also be a variant of the German name, Laskau. Other Polish variants are Liasko and Lesko. The best thing to do is to ask the oldest member of your boyfriend's family that you or he can find, or dig up family documents, such as immigration or naturalization, military service, etc. Lasko by itself, however, is a name known among Jews.
