Yahud Abramczyk (variously transliterated into other languages as: Abramczik, Abramcyk, Abramcik, Abramchik, Abramchyk, Abramtchik, Abramschik, Abramtshik, Abramtschik, Abrahmczyk, Abrahmcik, Abrahmchik, Abrahmtzik, Abramtzik, Abramčyk, Abramčik; Ashkenazi forms: Avramchik, Avramtchik, Avramtshik, Avramchyk, Avramcik, Avromchik, Avrumchik, Avramtzik, Belarusian: Абрамчык, Russian: Абрамчик; Hebrew: אברמציק ,אברמצ'יק; Yiddish: אַבראַמטשיק; Arabic: ابرامشيك ,أبرامتشيك‎) is a Polish Jewish and Polish surname. It is a patronymic surname derived from the Hebrew name 'Abram.' This surname was given in about 18th century to the Mizrahi Jews from Ottoman Empire who came to Poland around 1550 with a small group of Turkish Sephardi Jews during the time period of the Turkic peoples', Karaites' and Armenians' migrations to Central Europe. Instead of Arabic 'Ibrahim', the Mizrahi Jews were given the 'Abram' version of this name as the purest and original. Therefore, the 'Abramczyk' surname is defined as coming from the Polish Jews of Arab origin and is an evidence of the Semitic ancestry of its owner. The ending 'czyk' signifies "son of" which results in the meaning: "the son of Abram", "little Abram" or "Abram junior". In case of the ethnic minorities in Poland, this suffix was in fact more commonly given to Jews from the Arab countries living in Poland, while for example such suffixes as 'ski' or 'wicz' were more often seen in the Ashkenazi Jewish or Polish Armenian surnames. After the Mizrahim have settled on the territories of Poland, they have gradually blended with the Ashkenazi culture for example by mixed marriages. This is why the surname is not only known in Hebrew, but also had its version in Yiddish. The Central and Eastern European Jews saw Mizrahi as Sephardim and did not distinct their separate culture. However, after about few generations, the Mizrahim, lost in their identity and the pressure of great Ashkenazi majority around them, were easy to convert. As a result, many of them were baptized and became the Roman Catholic neophytes. According to the sources, their surnames were left unchanged, because they already contained a Polish suffix. Letting the surnames consist of a Semitic name was a sign of Polish tolerance to the Jewish ethnicity, which could be commemorated in a form of surname. The suffix criterion was not fulfilled in case of some typical German Ashkenazic surnames like for example those with the endings 'man' or 'stein'. Having a Polish-sounding surname was an important condition to become a full member of a Polish Christian society. Nowadays many owners of 'Abramczyk' surname are usually adapted for being the Poles, although there are many of them still conscious of their roots. The surname is actually most common in Poland, but also appears in other countries like Israel, France, United States, Canada, Belarus, Germany, Argentina and Brasil.
Yehuda ibn Abram Hello my friends! It is claimed that rhe surname "Abramczyk" has very deep Mizrahi origin. This is supposedly a historical fact. Abramczyk has its version in Hebrew and Arabic as well. If we say that all of the non-Ashkenazi Jews including the Mizrahim are Sephardim, than YES, Abramczyk has Sephardi roots. There is a theory that some Polish-Jewish surnames have some far Sephardic background because as we all should know, the 16th century Poland was called "the Jewish Heaven" and since the 17th century the Polish Jews were a mix of genetic heritage. Jewish people from all around the Europe came to Poland because at the time it was the most tolerant country in the whole Europe right after Turkey (the Ottoman Empire). There is a theory that the Abramczyk surname was adopted by the Jews from the Ottoman Empire because it had the original biblical name in it (which was very important in the Sephardi tradition), plus the suffix "-czyk" meant "the first-born son of...", so as a result "Abramczyk" was "the son of Abram". To prove the suffix theory some historians give an example of "Taitaczak" or "Taitaczyk" which is a pure Sephardic surname. Some other theory states that the Polish Sephardim had to change their last names in order to become the Polish citizens and the full members of the Polish-Jewish community as well. That is why some language scientists and historians claim that the "Abramczyk" surname might be coming from such Sefardi surnames like "Abravanel", "Abramenti", "Avramento", "Abrameto", "Abraim", "Abrach", "Abraira", "Abramo", "Abrami" or "Brami". It is also very closely related to another Polish-Jewish last name "Abramik". There was a Sephardi man named Yuri Abramovich Barbanel whose ancestors settled in Russia, changed their surname from "Abrabanel" to "Abramovich" and added the part "Barbanel" afterwards. What is more, many Jews with the surname "Abramczyk" were of Non-Ashkenazic religious rite. In the records it is stated as "Southern" instead of "Ashkenazic". We might suppose that this "southern" stands for Sephardic and indicates on the Sephardi/Mizrahi roots of these people. At this point we must notice that these Mizrahi (or regarding the religious rite - Sephardi) Jews mixed with the Ashkenazim and permanently blended in the world of Polish Jewry. To sum up - the last name Abramczyk (Abramchik, Abramtzik) is of mixed Jewish origin. These origins might be called as Sephardi but to be precise, I would rather classify it as a Judeo-Slavic last name which is Polish-Jewish and has some Mizrahi Jewish origin. Thank you for your attention! -Yehuda Ibn Abram-
The son of Judah "Abramczyk" (Avramtzik, Abramtshik, Abramchik) is a typically patronymic Judaeo-Slavic last name coming from the Ottoman Jews of Sephardic origin. About the patronymy - there was a man named Ivan Abramovich Gannibal, a Russian military leader of Ethiopian origin, was the son of Abram Petrovich Gannibal - a general of pure Abyssinian (Ethiopian) origin. As you see, here we have the lastname "Abramovich" in a role of a middle name, indicating the name of the father - Abram.

Jifar Abraha Nevertheless, there are some rumours, that the Abramczyk surname is in fact Polish but its roots are African of Ethiopian-Jewish origin (deepest roots in Ethiopia).

Sarfaty The last names first part comes directly from Egyptian and Akkadian phrase "Aba-am-ra-am" meaning "love your Father". Could be coming from Mizrahi Jews of Sephardic/Spanish rite.
