About the Wilczek surname

Some Wilczek families may come from willi-che tribe of araucan nation giving also the name to the country they occupied in the form of Ch'illi that is of Che-Willi .

Probably they descend from Ilos ( Wil ) of Troia - Theos (Tshe ) that is "God" of his nation, and their ancestors once lived in the Holy City araucanians came from and were in their company when new home must have been found on the Holy Land either when spanish romans ruined it or even earlier at the attack of Babylonians.

The latter were already of spanish descent in some ways as they came from Babele under the lead of Nabukudurri-Ustur - that is until now Bab'le and Austuria - from 654 b.c. on ,from the feet of Pyrén ( Pu-i-Ra-ya-Wan ) mountains and were by natives therefore later called purun-runa , people of Pyrén - ; and also purum-runa that is pun-Rum people .

Some of them seemingly mixed with aukha-runa arriving some 200 years later and took the name together purun-aukha ,while some others stayed at being called khaldaians or akasheda ( dákshea ) that has been transformed for today into khaldsheaki .
