Etimology woud be "someone who deals with wood", either lumberjack, wood dealer or even a carpenter.
I know many Slovenians (it's harder to trace them elsewhere, small nation), and lot of them has similar sounding surnames.
And yes, many of them are blond, being both german influenced and Slavic.
Thanks for the insight on the name
That is the best explanation I've seen so far.
I would still think that he has some Scandinavian heritage too.
