Patek Name Meaning

Czech (Pátek): from the personal name Pátek ‘Friday’ (named as the fifth day of the week). Illegitimate children were sometimes given the name of the day of the week on which they were baptized. Jewish (from Poland): from Polish patek ‘godfather’, hence, as a Jewish name, perhaps a nickname for a person bringing a child in for circumcision.
