    "Jocz" surname - where did it come from?

    The Jocz surname is very rare in Poland and I am wondering where it came from, as it does not sound totally Polish. Usually there is a "wicz" or "czyk" added on. The only other time I've been able to locate this name was as a place in Russia recorded in Ellis Island when people came from that area - usually this was "Jocze" or "Joczy". I cannot find historical data on this name. Anyone know more about this? Why is it so rare? Why are so many of the Jocz people priests?

    I agree with Tz85. Polish is the first country that jumped out to me, however it would also be common in Ukraine due to their proximity. Perhaps this might be useful.

    Hope this doesn't sound ridiculous, but could it have a "nickname" as origin, typically, we nickname Scottish men as "Jocks or Jock", I know historically a number of Scottish mercenaries were in Poland.
    When I read it Jocz, phonetically sounds the same as Jocks, just an idea, could be completely wrong of course.
