Smigos' in Pennsylvania can trace their ancestry to Czechoslovakia, it is likely that's where the name originates. However, there is, supposedly, a Greek word "smigo" meaning "waterway" that may indicate an even older origin to the surname, but that's sheer speculation. Also, a side note: in 1993, Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic.
