#4493 Cretan surname

Posted by Angela on 10 June 2005 - 07:00 PM

Any local Cretans (or anyone one else who might know) know anything about the meaning/origins of the surname Pitsakis... I believe its Cretan in origin (especially because of the -akis ending). I have heard it means something like knife maker? Not too sure about that though. Or, has anyone heard the name, is it common or uncommon?
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
