    My surname translates in Polish to something like 'disagreement' or something.

    Strange, yes I know. My ancestors over 1000 years ago were probably making a joke, and the name stuck is my guess.

    My surname means "cup bearer", meaning there were people in germany around 1500's or so that bore cups/drinks for kings and made sure they weren't poisonous or something like that.

    But on another note, "schlank" means slim or delicate.
