Repinski Family History

Repinski Surname Meaning

Polish (Repiński): variant (in most cases Americanized) of Rzepiński a derivative of the personal name Rzepa from rzepa ‘turnip’. In Poland this spelling developed under the German influence and could also be derived directly from the Germanized personal name Repa. It is fairly possible that it originated from placename Rzepin (Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship) since the vast majority of bearers live in the northern part of Poland (Pomerania Kuyavia and northern Masovia).
