My husband is a Radtke and his ggrandfather came over from Germany in 1883, but when in German he spelled it Radka, later spelling it Radtke sometime after he was in the U.S. He supposedly had an uncle already in the U.S. when he arrived. It is possible that he changed it to what his uncle had possibly changed his name to. I have not checked this out yet. The origin, however, or meaning has not yet been looked into. Sorry.
