Czech (Horník): habitational name for someone from Kutná Hora which is so named for its silver mine (compare 1 above). Polish: variant of Górnik (see Gornik ). Jewish (Ashkenazic): apparently from Czech horník ‘miner’. Mining was not a traditional Jewish occupation so this may be an artificial adoption of the Czech surname (see 1 above).
