Naujocks, Naujoks, Naujock, Naujok, Naujokat is not a Lithuanian name. Anymore. Almost for 100 years. Lithuanian is Naujokas. 

OK. This is how they call these names today:

"Familiennamen preußisch-litauischer Provenienz in der Bundesrepublik".

If the definition of a Lithuanian name is "functioning grammatically in a Lithuanian language context" then Naujocks and Naujoks still are Lithuanian, Naujok, Naujock and Naujokat are not (an -s is missing).

Are BARANAUSKAS and ZINKEVICIUS Lithuanian names? They are because they can be declined, but at a price: they look disfigured and are not genuinely Lithuanian: BARANOWSKI - BARANAUSKAS.
