Chościsko – according to of Gall of Anonym father of Hubs and, of progenitor of dynasty Piastów. His name meaning the tail probably (from chost/chwost) appears in for Polish Chronicle in this meaningskutkować three times: Chościskiem also a prince is named Popiel in the title of chapter first of the first book. It is likely that they used the name here in the role of the nickname or it stayed added to the manuscript in the more late period. The second theory seems more probable, since original, Latin form of the sentence about the prince Popiel called Chościsko he is incorrect grammatically. This interpolation could be made under the influence of Greater Poland Chronicle which is giving Popiel his because of the long hair received the nickname Chościsko, that is blew.
