Surname origin - "Tlachac"

Does anyone know what language the surname "Tlachac" is from? The "tl" and the "ch" in the spelling made me think it was a Mesoamerican language at first, but a little Googling seems to point to Slovak.

Maybe it's because I know pretty much nothing about Slavic languages, but the "tl" sequence just strikes me as being very odd for an IE language. The Wikipedia page for Slovak doesn't have a phonology section either.

Can anyone provide an actual transcription of the name also? (IPA is fine)
