    My great-grandparents were possibly Czech but moved to eastern Germany (around Dresden) and settled there. How common is the surname Drabik in the Czech Republic? I understand that the surname is also used in Slovakia and Poland.

    I'd appreciate any replies.

    The name is not very common, but not rare, too. I check official statistics http://www.mvcr.cz/statistiky/jmena/index.html and here you are variants of name and number of them:
    Drabik and Drabík 49
    Drábik and Drábík 99
    Drabíková 37
    Drábiková and Drábíková 93
    The first two rows are men, last second women. CR has approximately 10 million inhabitants.
    Regards
    Karel :)
