About the Okun surname


    When Russia ordered all Jews to assume surname in the 1640's, Freda Horvitz's Zayde was a fisherman whose nickname was the commodity he sold, a perch called okun in Russian. Okun became Oklin due to the carelessness of a U.S. immigration clerk. (Source: Recollections of Harry Katz.)
