I know Paul Schrier (Bulk's actor) and Jason Navry (Skull's actor) are both Ashkenazi Jews in real life.

But, at the same time, I have NEVER saw the surnames Bulkmeier and Skullovitch in real life.

However, Farkas is a name of Hungarian origin, and Eugene is a given name of Greek origin.

Meier is the German word for mayor (also the same exact origin as French Maire, which is the Latin word major, which means large or big or tall or major or superior).

-Ovitch is a patronymic ending of Slavic origin.

Combined with their respective given name, I think Bulk is a Californian of German, and Hungarian descent (respectively, on his father's side, and on his mother's side), and Skull is a Californian of Serbo-Croatian, Greek, Russian, and Ukrainian descent (respectively, on his paternal grandfather's side, on his paternal grandmother's side, on his maternal grandfather's side, and on his maternal grandmother's side).

    These surnames look made up. Skull- ? Really? Bulk- too I guess, make it some spanglish, just with German and Russian.
