I can't find the surname Vachunek in the Czech Ministry of Statistics database, but I do find 180 or so hits on the surname googling Czech pages. These list some living in Zlín and Uherské Hradiště.

Hmm ... I must be looking at an outdated version of the list, because although I find Vachun, Vachůn, I don't find Vachůnek or Vachunek. I hadn't looked in the feminine list until now, but I do find Vachunková and Vachůnková. Thanks for the catch, Karel!
