Hello! I was wondering if there are any native Polish speakers out here who could settle an old family debate. My family name is "Gadek," which is a really unusual last name here in the US. My dad/aunts/uncles always translate it as "little snake" or "little prince" but they're third generation so none of them actually speaks Polish. A Polish curator at the Polish-American Museum in Chicago once told me it meant "gossip." Is any of the above true, or is it simply a family name? Thanks for any help!
