Hi to all. This is my first post. My question is about my surname, which is Hromek. I'm not from the Czech Republic, so I don't know the language, just a few words. I know that the word "hrom" means "thunder", and the -ek suffix is a diminutive. I would like to know the meaning of the word, if it has one. It seems that "little thunder" doesn't make too much sense. Could it be a nickname? Like "man of the thunders" or something like that? Thanks!
