Zamchick Meaning & Etymology

Having studied Russian for many years, my best guess is that Zamchik derives from the root ZaMOK, Замок, which means Lock.  In Russian and other Slavic languages, the [K} can interchange with [Ch].  Thus, Zamchik would be a last name based on the trade of locksmith.  Ivan Zamchik -- Ivan the Locksmith, and his descendants.  In German, from Schloss -- Schlosser.  This added by Cantor Daniel Pincus, who knows some Zamchiks.  Another possibility is that the word ZAmok, with the first syllable accent, means "Castle," so that the name might mean someone from a castle.  Schloss in German also has the dual meaning of lock and castle.  Makes sense.
