Kalashnik Surname History

Kalashnik (Cyrillic: Калашник) is a surname of Ukrainian origin meaning "maker of kalaches". A man who made kalaches (a type of bread in Ukrainian culture) was called a kalachnik (калачник), which sometimes by sandhi effect became kalashnik (калашник), and such a man's descendants thus got the surname Kalachnik (Калачник) or Kalashnik (Калашник). When Ukrainians with this last name moved to Russia, their last name was often changed by the authorities into Kalashnikov (Калашников) (with the suffix -ов meaning "belonging to", "son of").


Its English-spelling derivations could include Kalashnik, Kalachnik, Kalashnyk, Kalachnyk, Kalačnik, Kalašnik, Kalasnik or Kolashnik, Kolachnik, Kolashnyk, Kolachnyk, Kolačnik, Kolašnik, Kolasnik.
