Hallo. I just wanted to ask:
does/did Ongemak or (in older spelling) Ongemack exist as a surname?
Many thanks!

    Apparently there were 6 people in Belgium with the surname "Ongemack" in 2008, so, yes, it does exsist. (website familienaam.be). I couldn't find anyone with the surname "Ongemak".

    Thank you , Peterdg.
    Were they called that way because one of their ancestor was a foundling (vondeling)?

    Why should that be? No straightforward link between Ongemak and Vondeling... There are so many other 'ongemakken' So why 'vondeling'?

    Perhaps Vondel was a vondeling?

    According to the Meertens KNAW Instituut who has a database of surnames in the Netherlands, neither Ongemak nor Ongemack exist as surnames.
