Hi Vera,

here is my try.

In the books of the evangelical (German) Parish of Łabiszyn I found a
few Blech. There the names are written in German with no polonization.
Ble(s)ch-ke would be the "little" (junior) Blech. Blaschke would be the
polonized version of Blesch. Blech comes from the German word bleich
and may describe a persons appearance (having a pale skin).

best regrds,

Reiner (Kerp)
