    I've been wondering where the origin of my last name is derived from. I've been told by a few people that it is polish, any ideas?

    Andriechack may be anglicized version of Polish: Andryszak, Andrysiak, Andryczak (phonetically closest to your last name). Most probably above mentioned last names are related to Polish given name Andrzej translated to English as Andrew --> so I think that Andrews is the counterpart of Andriechack.

    Yes, it could be polish, from Andrzejczak most likely.

    Your proposal seems better.

    Another possibility (less probable though) would be Andrzejczuk.

    This sounds like an americanized version of the surname 'Andrzejczak' to me, but I may very well be mistaken. There's no telling as to what it specifically derives from without more context. Is there anything more you know about it, the original surname 'Andriechack' I mean? On reflection, it could well derive from Russian.

    You mean Polish, yeah?
