Chupka Family History

Chupka Name Meaning

Probably a respelling of eastern German Schupke, which is in part from a short form of the Slavic personal name Czepan (a vernacular form of Latin Stephanus (see Steven), and in part a nickname from Middle Low German schupe ‘fish scale’, or potentially a nickname for a tardy or indecisive person, from Middle High German schup ‘delay’, ‘procrastination’).
