Hello to everyone!
I'm not a Slavic language speaker, but I am interested in the meaning of this word in Croatian since it is related to my family name- it seems that my family name derives from "gužba".

Thanks in advance!

    Gužba = gužva. B and V are both labial, may be it's mispelled.
    Gužva means crowd,pandemonium, general scramble
    the verb gužvati se means to crush,to crumple(a piece of paper)
    and to press, to crowd.

    A bit similar sounds gozba.Means banquet, feast
