Soukup Name Meaning

Czech: occupational name for a merchant or dealer, Czech soukup (from Slavic sou- ‘with’ + kup ‘buy’). The vocabulary word later acquired the sense ‘fence’, i.e. ‘one who receives stolen property or abets a thief’, but this is probably irrelevant to the surname, which was formed before this sense was established.
