The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in J.B Rietstaps Armorial General. Illustrated by V & H.V Rolland's. This Monumental work took 23 years to complete and 85,000 coats of Arms are included in this work. This Polish and Czechoslovakian surname of CZARNECKI is of two-fold origin. It was a locational name meaning 'one who came from CZARNY' the name of several places in Poland, or it was a nickname for one with a dark or swarthy complexion. In Czechoslovakia in the riots of 1212, in what is now that country Chancellor Scornir was driven out of his castle and burned, and all but one of his sons massacred. His nurse concealed the little boy in the chimney of the castle, and when the mob departed the boy was found to be so covered with soot that he was passed off as CZERNY (black). Being unsafe to resume his former name he and his descendants elected to call themselves by this name or variants associated to it. The modern state of Czechoslovakia is going through a transitional phase as a result of the fall of the Iron Curtain. Its various regions encompassed the medieval provinces of Bohemia, Moravia, and Slovakia. The first two of these, where the language properly called Czech is spoken, were heavily subject to German cultural and linguistic influence from the Middle Ages onwards, being administratively a Crownland of Austria for much of the time until independence in 1918. This influence is reflected in the many Czech surnames derived from German, both from given names, and from vocabulary words. Occupational names are quite common in Czech as are nicknames, especially those referring to some physical feature. Many of the most common Czech surnames have the diminutive ending 'CEK', which is often found attached to these names. A notable member of the name was Karl CZERNY (1791-1857) the Austrian pianist and composer, born in Vienna. He studied under Beethoven and Clementi, and himself taught Liszt, Thelberg and Dohler. His piano exercises and studies were widely used.
