Inspection of the structure of the surnames of four well-
jákəbsən < jāk + kew + sūno karcéfski < kārl + kew + skī isáčenko < isāk + kew + kō stæŋkjévič < stān + kew + ītjo
This analysis suggests the following:
Each of these famous personalities was/is the genealogical zenith in a direct line from, respectively, Jack, Karl, Isaac and Stan Kew.
Jack’s line prospered in a Germanic setting, hence the change
Karl, Isaac and Stan were from stock of a more easterly origin, hence the Slavic suffixes, the lexical accommodation of the ending
Is it a coincidence that there is a Kew Gardens near London, England? Is it yet another, that according to legend the city of Kyjiv was founded by one of three brothers?
