Mystery Monday: Tlukza

Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.

Today’s name is (a) definitely Czech, (b) probably a diminutive (given the suffix), and (c) likely masculine (given context; but not necessarily given grammar).

Tlukza

It may also, possibly, be a place name (sometimes it’s hard to tell!). We’d love to know what the root name is here — do you have any suggestions? Other examples of it? Proof that it’s actually a place name? Please share in the comments!
