Hoping someone can help me ascertain the origin of my Lithuanian last name. My grandfather spelled it "Balkonis", but his father and his grandfather used Baltuskonis. I have searched and searched and it all has turned up empty. There aren't (as it appears to me) many Balkonis' out there. If anyone has any idea where this name came from I would greatly appreciate any help. As far as I know and have been told my family is from Lithuania. My great grandparents and grandparents spoke Lithuanian and immigrated around 1900.
