Last name origins & meanings:

  1. Ukrainian, Jewish (from Ukraine), Polish, Serbian, and Hungarian (Cáp): from Ukrainian tsap ‘billy goat’, Polish cap, and so probably a nickname for someone thought to resemble the animal in some way or perhaps a metonymic occupational name for a goat herd.
  2. Czech (Čáp): nickname for a tall or long-legged man, from čáp ‘stork’.
  3. Southern French: from Occitan cap ‘head’ (Latin caput); probably a nickname for a person with something distinctive about his head.
