Zak Name Meaning
Polish (Zak), Czech (Žák), and Slovak (Žáik): nickname for a youthful or studious person, from Polish ?zak ‘student’, ‘schoolboy’. The original meaning of this word was ‘novice’, ‘candidate for the priesthood’, and so in some cases it is perhaps a nickname for someone who had been destined for holy orders.
