It´s of Old Slavonic origin. Russian word юркий (jurkij) meaning "nimble, quick".

Juraj is a given name used in a number of languages in various forms. The variants used in Central and Eastern Europe may be derived from a Slavonic similar to the Russian word юркий (yurkiy) meaning "nimble, quick, handy". Pronounced "yuwh-rie".
