Surnames: Polc, Cingota
Hello. I am looking for information on both of these surnames which I am told may or may not have German origins. I want to know if the origin of these names is in fact German and what the meanings of them are. Thank you.

POLC would seem to be of Slovak origins... and CINGOTA appears to be of Czech origins (sometimes listed as Bohemian)... POLC sounds like pohltz... thus one may consider POLTZ people of this name of German ethnicity immigrated to the US from old Hungary... But CINGOTA German? One would hardly suspect this of being German
