My maiden name was Fingerhut. The original Bohemian name was Naprstek and was changed to Fingerhut upon arrival in the U.S. My understanding is that the Bohemian name Naprstek and the German name Fingerhut both mean thimble. I would like to talk to anyone who can link the two names in their family history. I believe that the origin of the Naprstek name came from Germany before they migrated to Bohemia and reverted back to the German name of Fingerhut upon immigrating to the U.S.
